On this date in 1781, the last name in Incan rebellion met a horrible end in the ancient Incan capital of Cusco. José Gabriel Condorcanqui rechristened Tupac Amaru II, as he was a distant descendant of the last Incan king was a member of the privileged indigenous population depended upon by the Spanish to administer the forced and extorted labor that made its New World empire worth having.
Condorcanqui evidently had an epiphany.
In November 1780, he launched a well-planned rebellion by engineering the public execution of a hated corregidor Antonio de Arriaga at the hands of his own servant.

A year later Biggie Smalls was killed.
Wasn’t he the OG rapper?
He and his family had a rather difficult end. The Spaniards didn’t play around. A lot of ideas that should be reserved for the Democrats and media should come from knowledge of those operations in Latin America and those of Genghis Khan. They are so evil, they must also meet a similar fate at the hands of some government, some day.
Meh. Burned churches. Slaughtered innocents.
Tupac Shkur’s Black Panther mother named him after this Incan to instill in him worldwide revolutionary significance.
I wonder if that is where Lesane Parish Crooks, got his stage name from: Tupac Shakur.
It always gives me some satisfaction that Spain is so trivial a nation today. It doesn’t repair the damage their empire did to the New World or bring the people they killed back to life, but it ensures that at least they won’t do any more damage.
Without Spain, there would be no America. I get your point about their savageness, but some things they did were great.
A rather twisted view of history.
The Aztecs were much worse than the Spanish.
The Incas might have been marginally less bad than the Aztecs.
Most of the death and damage in the New Word were from the diseases carried between Europe and the Americas. It worked both ways, but the people in the New World were much more suseptable, especially to the Asian diseases.
The Europeans had already paid that price with multiple plagues in Europe.
Their empire hasn’t done us any favors. Spain even sent troops to assist the Third Reich. (Legión Azul).
I thought it was 2Pac.
Is he only 1/3 of a 6 pack?
