They say there are a 6 million ways to die. No one ever says how you can make money off the dead. Yes, one of the many joys capitalism is that it has not moral base(it really needs one). When the morality checks and balances and no parameters that needs to be crossed, it then gives way that are grossly outrageous. There are some many ways to desecrate the cadaverous. It’s just business never personal with making revenue and clearly this could be an issue for your local Priest to reason with.

1. Algordanza Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, now they took that saying to a whole new level. Algordanza a diamond company whose headquarters in Switzerland and has stores in 19 other countries including the US. They recently invented a way to turn human ashes into blue diamonds. The process takes the 18% of carbon that makes up the human body and separates the carbon from the other elements in the human ashes. These “memorial” diamonds have the same chemical and physical properties as a regular diamond. The average cremation creates 5 pounds of ashes, while the process only needs 1.1 pounds to make a diamond. Contaminants are filtered out in a two-step process and then adding iron and cobalt. The largest diamond you can order is one carat and takes four to six months to complete. Blue one carat diamonds can range from $6,800 to $11,200 dollars.

2. Organ HarvestThe black market literally has blood on their hands from illegally and immorally taking organs from men, women and children. The most incident that got media attention is the story of Kendrick Johnson, a teen in Georgia who reportedly of an accidental death when he was rolled up in a school gym mat. The parents had a second autopsy performed where they found his brain, heart, lungs and liver were taken out and newspaper was stuffed into the corpse. They also determined the cause of death was blunt trauma to the right side of is neck. The sad part is hospitals in New York, Philadelphia and Los Angeles are paying $150,000 dollars for each organ. It seems doctors, hospitals don’t ask and don’t care about the origins of these organs. The organ brokers make the most of the deal, while the donor if still alive gets $5,000 dollars.

Insurance

3. Dead Peasants Insurance– I first heard about the Dead Peasants Insurance or Janitor’s insurance from Michael Moore’s film about capitalism. It’s detestable to think this practice is still being exercised, but it’s capitalism at its finest. For those of you who don’t know what it is by now. “The 2006 law stipulated that companies could not deduct certain expenses of acquiring and holding such a policy from their taxable corporate income unless the covered employee worked at the company during the 12 months prior to his or her death. Before that, employers were able to buy policies under which they could collect death benefits decades after a person’s employment terminated.” Companies like Wal-Mart, Dow Chemical, American Electric Power, Winn-Dixie Store and Camelot Music made millions by cashing on their dead employees.One example of this practice is Amergy Bank made $4.75 million off an employee who they fired,but made money on his death after hearing he had a brain tumor.

4. Tissue Donation– Tissue donation applies to anything that is not a living organ and can be taken from the dead body. Tendons, veins and human bone can be used on future patients in need. $80,000 or more can be made from a single body through tissue donation. One single donor can impact up to 50 people. Tissue companies make over a billion dollars a year. Tissue donations can help with burn victims and also cosmetic surgery such as smoothing wrinkles and plumping up lips. Over 30,000 bodies are donated every year.

5. Unclaimed Money- If you are the rightful heir to a deceased relative unclaimed money and property, then you want to see if you are owed anything. Sites like unclaimed.org and missingmoney.com and great search engines to get access to anything untouched.

grave

6. Grave Robbery– The term rest in peace does not exist in this world for the affluent. Even in death the greedy and those who have no shame will take what they want from the resting places of those buried in the ground. It seems that people high on meth have become the new wave of gravediggers and stealing from sites associated with the civil war and Native Americans. They look for anything of value to feed their habit. This is a new low, even for meth heads. Depending on the artifacts found and sold they can be anywhere from $500 to thousands of dollars.

7. Cannibal Restaurant in Nigeria– You’ve heard of Tiger testicle soup? Maybe not, well how about human heads wrapped in cellophane for the for the purpose to be eaten. Yup, a restaurant was closed down when they uncovered a hotel restaurant was serving human flesh and even had roasted human head on the menu. A lump of human meat was sold at N700 which converts into $60 US dollars according to google. This is really sick stuff man.

Update-5/20/2015

8. Leather Made from Human Skin-If you ever looked at someone’s handbag or shoes and thought it was a great accessory, you may want to ask them where they got it. Not just to be nosy so you can buy it yourself, but to make sure it’s not made from human skin. One such company called HumanLeather.co.uk says they make items from real human skin and sell them to a strict affluent clientele. The site claims this is legal and they get their skin from recently deceased cadavers that were sold to them by the deceased family for compensation. Unfortunately, this is not a new phenomenon and dates back to the 17th century and maybe earlier. For example the French used to bound their books in human skin and made slippers from them as well. One article in the Mercury in 1888 claims a doctor only used African skin to make his shoes,because of he says they were the most pliable and enduring. Fast forward to today and the practice is still going strong to today. So how much for some of the items offered: Wallet-$14,000, Belt-$15,750, Shoes-$27,000. This is the world we live in.

It’s a truly sick world we live in where the voiceless are used for profit and their families are left out. Are we in such economic despair that we sacrifice our meritorious values and replace them with hollow dividends and revenue streams where you cash in by using cadavers as legal tender. These atrocious acts mark a declination in any virtuous trait that I once thought was incorruptible. I was truly mistaken.

6/21/16 –Update

In addition to the other listings I made I found out another example of how people are worth more dead than alive. In particularly people of dark skinned color. Melanin is a determining factor in creating skin color in humans and also can be used for radiation protection, anti-oxidants, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Melanin can be found in every organ of the human body, and darker skinned people have more melanin than light skinned or Caucasians.

A little known fact about melanin is that it is the most expensive material on earth, costing $350 dollars a gram. “Many scientific studies have verified that melanin has unique characteristics for a wide range of applications, especially in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and battery technology sectors which have growing global demand,” said Kenneth Nealson, Ph.D., vice president of research at River Road Research.

Many African-Americans, Africans and people with darker skinned tint are weary about this. When you do the math of adding the grams of an average dark skinned male weighing about 150 lbs. is worth 28 million dollars roughly. With this kind of incentive, fearful conspiracy theorists are putting together accusations that the reason why African Americans are dying at rates higher than other races can partly be due to the worth of their melanated skin.

I gotta tell you I hated history in high school. It was the same thing over and over again. We learn about how the British ruled over the American settlers and had unfair taxes and they eventually went to war. I couldn’t keep my eyes open half the time cause it was the same mundane retelling of the same story. I always would wonder we only cover one section of the globe and one perspective,  what else is there to read about and hear about? In this blog I will talk about contributions that have been left out of normal history high school textbooks to give you a more complete picture of the sacrifices  and ideas WE ALL MADE AS AMERICANS to build this great nation.

One nation

Native Americans – When you think of the contributions Native Americans made to help build what we know now as America. You might think that they showed the Europeans settlers how to grow food like, potatoes, corn, beans, pumpkins and tomatoes among other indigenous plant life in the region. The Native Americans gave America much more than just food and colorful bead patterns. If you like games like canoeing snowshoeing, tobogganing, lacrosse, relay races and tug of wars, then you might be interested in that fact that these games were Native American past times long before Europeans settled the lands and were adopted into the evolving culture that shaped the young nation. Not to mention the land itself belonged to the Native Americans and was taken away forcefully through bloodshed, disease and famine…..Oh yeah guns too!!!!!!! Got to love the right to bear arms, even back then.

Words were also given to America through Native Americans. Words such as barbecue, caribou, chipmunk, woodchuck, skunk and even hurricane. A majority of our state names came from Native American derivatives. Connecticut – Means river who s water is driven by tides of winds. Illinois means “Men” the name given by the Algonquian tribe confederacy. Iowa is the name of a tribe meaning sleepy ones. The idea of sign language came from Native Americans as well. They would use hand signals to communicate and trade between different tribes. While the signs are different in sign language the concept came from this idea. Benjamin Franklin also adopted the idea of the federal government where certain powers are given to the central government while states have their own power. This groundbreaking idea came from the Iroquoian league of Nations. So now that you know a little bit more about what Native Americans contributed to American CAN WE STOP CALLING THE FOOTBALL TEAM IN WASHINGTON THE WASHINGTON REDSKINS PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!. It’s racist end of story and Native Americans deserve a lot more respect than that period.

Hispanic

Hispanic Americans – In 1620 while Europeans were struggling trying to set up the colonies. Spanish towns were vibrant in Florida, the Southwest and Puerto Rico. The first Spanish settlement was in 1526 over 80 years before the settlement in Jamestown which was settled in 1607. The settlement was named San Miguel De Gualdape founded in Georgia. It only lasted a short time, because the founders soon died and the inhabitants couldn’t take the harsh conditions and weather. In addition to the explorations that Lewis and Clark led there was also explorations led by Hernando De Soto in 1539 through Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.

The war for independence was also helped by Hispanics as well. King Carlos of Spain granted a credit of one million pounds a large at the time to the American colonists. Also a special tax was levied by the Spanish crown towards Los Angeles, San Diego and San Franciso to help the continental congress with the war effort. The battle of Yorktown was also funded by public treasury in Cuba and the citizens of Havana where the women gave jewelry to support the tide changing battle that helped win the Revolutionary War. There were Spanish ports along the Caribbean and Europe that were safe havens for American ships looking for refuge. Over 4,000 Spanish soldiers were captured, tortured and died as prisoners of war. All to help the cause for American Independence. The sacrifices aren’t mentioned in your textbooks are they????????? There are other many contributions America owes these patrons of the young New World, but I want to make sure I touch on the other cultures that made sacrifices as well.

asian american

Asian Americans – Asian American made great contributions to this country that are continuously overlooked. During World War II the 100th infantry Battalion and the 442nd Regiment Combat Team were segregated Army units who fought in Italy and Germany. They became  known as the most decorated unit in  US history.  In another story Japanese Americans served in the Pacific against their own Japanese people. Their use of the Japanese language and knowledge were key components in dismantling their Japanese counterparts tactics. The state of Hawaii became a state through the actions of the Asian immigrants. They had to overcome the fear that “yellow” men would go into congress if they were given statehood. There were 2 Japanese Americans in the US senate one of them was a member of the 442nd. General Eric Shinseki is the army’s chief of staff.

Asian Americans made the largest sacrifice to help build this country. Their own lives. The West Coast railroads are grave yards to thousands of Asian Americans they themselves were forced to build. Gold mines are also burial grounds for many Asian Americans too.Asian Americans made the largest sacrifice to help build this country. Their own lives. The West Coast railroads are grave yards to thousands of Asian Americans they themselves were forced to build. Gold mines are also burial grounds for many Asian Americans too.tomatoes native to the area. The idea of vaccinations created by Jonas Salk was derived from the ancient Chinese techniques. Cigarettes was another concept taken from the Chinese. The workers while on the railroad would roll up the American tobacco in rice paper. This idea became more popular than using supplanted pipes and cigars.

black statue of liberty

African-American women and the Statue of Liberty -What if I told you this next contribution was given to America by African-Americans, but by the French. The controversy around the gift is why it was given and what does it mean. You seen the Statue of Liberty and know it is the most welcoming gift of freedom and liberty. One question has remained unanswered since the days it was brought to the US. Is the Statue itself a black woman who’s been freed from chains? In France the original Statue of Liberty is a black woman. French Historian Edourd de Laboulaye, chairman of the French Anti-Slavery Society collaborated with sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi in the creation of the Statue. It was a gift to the US through the French government  in honor of the black soldiers who were the pivotal role in winning the Civil War. When the statue was presented to the US Minister  he first rejected the statue because of the shackles the statue was wearing. There are various sources of proof to verify this as truth including a NY Times article written back on May 18 1986 with an article written by Laboulaye and even the original model from Bartholdi that can be sent to you from the french embassy at the UN or DC.

The June 17 1986 NY Post also has information about the statue of liberty being a black woman. Bartholdi’s design models for the statue of liberty evolved from earlier sketches by the artist of black Egyptian women. The idea was readily accepted by over 100,000 French citizens and 181 towns who all contributed money for building the statue. I myself found pictures online of the present Statue of Liberty with remains of chains around her ankles. Personally I see this as proof that the original concept around the symbol of hope and America was originally a black woman. The statue’s face ended up being modeled after Bartholdi’s mother. In the museum of New York City there is a 21 inch terra-cotta model by Bartholdi “designed with the likeness of a black woman” next to the model of the current statue with a broken chain around its left hand dangling.
