Some of you might find this interesting, some not. Newbies, Latin is a White language which was spoken in ancient Rome. It’s part of what you learn when you study the Classics (which Dr. Revilo Oliver taught):

      Thank you for sharing such resources on Latin. Keep on the good work!

    4. woody Says:

      This begs the question, why do those squat brown little mestizos call themselves latinos? And what of this La Raza bullshit? Mexicans are one of the most race mixed people on earth, asiatic, amerindian, negroidal and southern european, not to mention the turko mongoloid conversos that fled Spain to the new world when Queen Isabella was kicking the little kikes out. The Race, jeezus, which race you talking about beaner?

      Vocative may be one,

      I am running on memory from 1961. I almost got expelled from 9th grade Latin. I had carved I HATE LATIN (in English!) in the groove used to hold the pencil. I looked up, there was Mrs. Regenfuss. She sent me to the boys VP, one Mister Myers. “We could expell you for this.” I had to sand it down.

      The folks who like the government school monopoly are the most insane of all.

    7. Howdy Doody Says:

      In the N.W. U.S. in 1959 a friend who always uses Latin one liners in his letters to friends told me all the boys in his graduating class took four years of Latin.

      1959 ?

    8. Howdy Doody Says:

      i used to have those words in latin. i was gonna make a t shirt out of it but never did. it stayed posted to my fridge for years.
      i know i can still find it on the net somewhere.. its a great song for the shower and to entertain kids with,

      The post above was a quote from some one else not me.

    10. Hugh Lincoln Says:

      I have a graduate degree.

      But I never studied Greek or Latin language, history or culture. Never studied the Roman Empire.

      I believe that this is by design. Those who seek to destroy our race have sliced that stuff out of schooling. White kids get the idea that they have one of the oldest and most powerful cultures on earth in their past, they might get silly ideas about the future.
