Signs Of 9-Year-Old Pirate Found In Wreck Off Cape Cod

Underwater archaeologists have identified the partial remains of the youngest known pirate to ply U.S. waters, a 9-year-old boy who eagerly joined Capt. Black Sam Bellamy's crew on the infamous Whydah.

Teen pirates were quite common during the early 18th century, but "this is the youngest one I have ever come across," historian Ken Kinkor of the Expedition Whydah Sea-Lab & Learning Center in Provincetown, Mass., said Wednesday in announcing the discovery.

The young pirate's idyll aboard the Whydah did not last long. The ship foundered in a storm off Cape Cod only three months later, crashing to the sea floor with all but eight of its 180-man crew.

The tale of the pirate, identified as John King, was then pretty much lost to history until explorer Barry Clifford used court documents and an early salvage map to locate the Whydah in 1984.

In the subsequent 20 years, Clifford and his crew of divers have recovered more than 100,000 artifacts from the wreck, bringing them to the surface, conserving them, and putting them on display at their museum on the end of a Provincetown pier.

The wreck "was like a 300-year-old Wal-Mart on the bottom of the ocean," Clifford said, with an unusually broad variety of artifacts stolen from other ships. Despite the quantity of materials recovered, he added, "we've never really discovered the mother lode of the ship."

One thing they did discover was a small shoe, a silk stocking and a small fibula or shin bone. The items had been in storage unremarked for nearly 20 years before Clifford and Kinkor recently made the connection to young John King.

King's fragmentary story is found in a deposition filed with the governor of Antigua on Nov. 30, 1716, by Abijah Savage, commander of the Antiguan sloop Bonetta. As was the usual practice, Savage reported to the governor the details of a pirate attack on his ship.

On Nov. 9, the Bonetta was attacked by Bellamy's ship and held for 15 days. The pirates took all of their valuables, including "a Negro Man and an Indian Boy belonging to Mr. Benjamin Wicker," before releasing them.

Savage wrote that one John King, who was sailing with his mother as a passenger from Jamaica to Antigua, "deserted his sloop, and went with the Pirates and was so far from being forced or compelled thereto by them as the deponent could perceive or learn that he declared he would Kill himself if he was Restrained, and even threatned his Mother who was then on Board as a Passenger with the Deponent."

--- O PARASITA BRANCO (a Maioria dos europeus) , por um lado, SABE REIVINDICAR Pensões de Reforma... todavia... por outro lado, NÃO REIVINDICA uma Sociedade Sustentável: uma Sociedade dotada da Capacidade de Renovação Demográfica!?!...

--- É necessário ASSUMIR A REALIDADE... com Total Frontalidade: ---> a Europa está sob o domínio de um MONTE DE BANDALHOS ( vulgo Parasita Branco -> a Maioria dos europeus ), que pretendem andar no Planeta a Curtir o MAIOR FESTIM PARASITA da História da Humanidade:
-1- O Parasita Branco (a Maioria dos europeus) pretende andar no Planeta a Curtir a abundância de mão-de-obra Servil...... APESAR DE... o Parasita Branco nem sequer constituir uma Sociedade aonde se procede à Renovação Demográfica!
-2- O Parasita Branco (a Maioria dos europeus) pretende andar no Planeta a Curtir a existência de alguém que pague as Pensões de Reforma...... APESAR DE... o Parasita Branco nem sequer constituir uma Sociedade aonde se procede à Renovação Demográfica!

--->>> É necessário combater a Ditadura do Parasita Branco (a Maioria dos europeus)... ou seja... é necessário reivindicar o LEGÍTIMO Direito ao Separatismo!!!
SEPARATISMO-50
[ A constituição de Espaços Reserva Natural de Povos Nativos ]


NOTA 1:
--- O Multi-Culturalismo Local ( ao nível de cada cidade )... produz... um Mono-Culturalismo Global: TODAS ao cidades irão ser dominadas demograficamente pelos Povos( Raças ) de maior rendimento demográfico.
--- Pelo contrário, o Mono-Culturalismo Local ( a existência de Reservas Naturais de Povos Nativos )... produz... um Multi-Culturalismo Global: TODOS os Povos Nativos ( inclusive os de menor rendimento demográfico... ) vão poder ter o SEU espaço no Planeta.

NOTA 2:
--- Uma ARTIMANHA BRANQUEADORA de PARASITAGEM: - o Monte de Bandalhos ( vulgo Parasita Branco ) são INTOLERANTES para com os Legítimos Direitos [ ou seja, a existência de Espaços Reserva Natural ] dos Povos Nativos... pois... a Ocupação da Europa por outros Povos deve ser considerada um ‘Processo Absolutamente Natural’... e não... o resultado da actuação de um BANDO DE PARASITAS ( vulgo Parasita Branco -> a Maioria do europeus )... que pretendem andar no Planeta a CURTIR À CUSTA DOS OUTROS...
