“Historians have spent a lot of time talking about whether African-Americans resisted. In forced migrations, survival was a kind of resistance in finding ways to stand in solidarity with each other and to write stories about themselves to say: This is a crime.”

“Southerners created numerous financial innovations that were essential to the process of the domestic slave trade. Slave owners put mortgages on slaves as they bought them. Britain had abolished slavery, but you can essentially buy slaves by buying one of those bonds. It shows the linkage.”

takes apart the myths that our society has created to make us more comfortable with our slave-owning past.”
His own journey into that past was intellectually satisfying but sometimes emotionally challenging, Mr. Baptist said. He recalled reading an interview with a woman whose enslaved mother toiled in the fields of a small Kentucky farm in the 1850s, sometimes returning home to discover that another child of hers had been sold away.

NYT review of a new harrowing book on capitalism and slavery:
"The idea that the commodification and suffering and forced labor of African-Americans is what made the United States powerful and rich is not an idea that people necessarily are happy to hear. Yet it is the truth.”

Once over lunch, Microsoft’s then-CEO Steve Ballmer asked Libin about his opinion of an acquisition. Libin’s answer: “I don’t think we’re big enough to buy you yet.”

Libin is unambiguous about both. Being a public company, he says, is part of Evernote’s mission. “We have a moral obligation to be a public company,” he said. “We’re asking people to trust us for a long time and that means becoming a publicly held company. I just don’t think we’re ready yet.” Translation: Don’t expect to be talking about an Evernote IPO before 2017 or so.
But don’t fall — at least not easily — for the steady steam of acquisition rumors. “I don’t want to sell the company,” he said. “It’s not a mathematical certainty, because if someone offered us some ludicrous amount of money, we’d have to take it to our investors and shareholders and evaluate it. … It’s not entirely up to me. But there’s no amount of money that would make me happy about it.”

85% of people at rikers - not conficted
95% of cases are plea bargains
a ki - 16 yrs - after 2.5 yrs - 2 yrs in solitary - gets a plea offer - and he declines - he could not have been greater pressure to plead.. he says, "i'm all right.. i'm not guilty." 
over and over - prosecutors: "people not ready.. request more time"
slipping worksheets under door - not always picking up
