The Rosewood massacre was a racially motivated massacre of black people and destruction of a black town that took place during the first week of January 1923 in rural Levy County, Florida. At least six black people and two white people were killed, though eyewitness accounts suggested a death toll as high as 150; the town of Rosewood was destroyed, in. Racial disturbances were common during the early 20th century in the United States, reflecting the nation's rapid social changes. Florida had an high number of lynchings of black males in the years before the massacre, including a well-publicized incident in December 1922. Before the massacre, the town of Rosewood had been a quiet black, self-sufficient whistle stop on the Seaboard Air Line Railway. Trouble began when white men from several nearby towns lynched a black Rosewood resident because of unsupported accusations that a white woman in nearby Sumner had been beaten and raped by a black drifter; when the town's black citizens rallied together to defend themselves against further attacks, a mob of several hundred whites combed the countryside hunting for black people, burned every structure in Rosewood.
Survivors from the town hid for several days in nearby swamps until they were evacuated by train and car to larger towns. No arrests were made for; the town was abandoned by its former white residents. Although the rioting was reported around the United States at the time, few official records documented the event. Survivors, their descendants, the perpetrators remained silent about Rosewood for decades. Sixty years after the rioting, the story of Rosewood was revived in major media when several journalists covered it in the early 1980s. Survivors and their descendants organized to sue the state for having failed to protect Rosewood's black community. In 1993, the Florida Legislature commissioned a report on the incident; as a result of the findings, Florida became the first U. S. state to compensate survivors and their descendants for damages incurred because of racial violence. The incident was the subject of a 1997 feature film directed by John Singleton. In 2004, the state designated the site of Rosewood as a Florida Heritage Landmark.
The recorded death toll of the first week of January 1923 was eight. Historians disagree about this number; some survivors' stories claim there may have been up to 27 black residents killed, assert that newspapers did not report the total number of white deaths. Minnie Lee Langley, in the Carrier house siege, recalls that she stepped over many white bodies on the porch when she left the house. A newspaper article in 1984 stated. Several eyewitnesses claim to have seen a mass grave filled with black people. However, by the time authorities investigated these claims, most of the witnesses were dead or too elderly and infirm to lead them to a site to confirm the stories. Rosewood was settled in 1845, nine miles east of Cedar Key, near the Gulf of Mexico. Most of the local economy drew on the timber industry. Two pencil mills were founded nearby in Cedar Key; the hamlet grew enough to warrant the construction of a post office and train depot on the Florida Railroad in 1870, but it was never incorporated as a town.
Rosewood had both black and white settlers. When most of the cedar trees in the area had been cut by 1890, the pencil mills closed, many white residents moved to Sumner. By 1900, the population in Rosewood had become predominantly black; the village of Sumner was predominantly white, relations between the two communities were amicable. Two black families in Rosewood named Carrier were the most powerful; the Goins family brought the turpentine industry to the area, in the years preceding the attacks were the second largest landowners in Levy County. To avoid lawsuits from white competitors, the Goins brothers moved to Gainesville, the population of Rosewood decreased slightly; the Carriers were a large family working at logging in the region. By the 1920s everyone in the close-knit community was distantly related to each other; the population of Rosewood peaked in 1915 at 355 people. Florida had disenfranchised black voters since the start of the 20th century by high requirements for voter registration.
S. Census. In 1920, the combined population of both towns was 638; as was common in the late 19th century South, Florida had imposed legal racial segregation under Jim Crow laws requiring separate black and white public facilities and transportation. Black and white residents created their own community centers: by 1920, the residents of Rosewood were self-sufficient, they had three churches, a school, a large Masonic Hall, a turpentine mill, a sugarcane mill, a baseball team named the Rosewood Stars, two general stores, one of, white-owned. The village had about a dozen two-story wooden plank homes, other small two-room houses, several small unoccupied plank farm and storage structures; some families owned pianos, o

Florida is home to 51 of the world's billionaires with most of them residing in South Florida; the first European contact was made in 1513 by Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León, who called it la Florida upon landing there in the Easter season, known in Spanish as Pascua Florida. Florida was a challenge for the European colonial powers before it gained statehood in the United States in 1845, it was a principal location of the Seminole Wars against the Native Americans, racial segregation after the American Civil War. Today, Florida is distinctive for its large Cuban expatriate community and high population growth, as well as for its increasing environmental issues; the state's economy relies on tourism and transportation, which developed in the late 19th century.
Florida is renowned for amusement parks, orange crops, winter vegetables, the Kennedy Space Center, as a popular destination for retirees. Florida is the flattest state in the United States. Lake Okeechobee is the largest freshwater lake in the U. S. state of Florida. Florida's close proximity to the ocean influences many aspects of daily life. Florida is a reflection of multiple inheritance. Florida has attracted many writers such as Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams, continues to attract celebrities and athletes, it is internationally known for golf, auto racing, water sports. Several beaches in Florida have emerald-colored coastal waters. About two-thirds of Florida occupies a peninsula between the Gulf of the Atlantic Ocean. Florida has the longest coastline in the contiguous United States 1,350 miles, not including the contribution of the many barrier islands. Florida has a total of 4,510 islands; this is the second-highest number of islands of any state of the United States.

By the 16th century, the earliest time for which there is a historical record, major Native American groups included the Apalachee of the Florida Panhandle, the Timucua of northern and central Florida, the Ais of the central Atlantic coast, the Tocobaga of the Tampa Bay area, the Calusa of southwest Florida and the Tequesta of the southeastern coast.
Florida was the first region of the continental United States to be visited and settled by Europeans. The earliest known European explorers came with the Spanish conquistador Juan Ponce de León. Ponce de León spotted and landed on the peninsula on April 2, 1513, he named the region Florida. The story that he was searching for the Fountain of Youth is mythical and only appeared long after his death. In May 1539, Conquistador Hernando de Soto skirted the coast of Florida, searching for a deep harbor to land, he described seeing a thick wall of red mangroves spread mile after mile, some reaching as high as 70 feet, with intertwined and elevated roots making landing difficult.

A cuckold is the husband of an adulterous wife. In evolutionary biology, the term is applied to males who are unwittingly investing parental effort in offspring that are not genetically their own; the word cuckold derives from the cuckoo bird, alluding to its habit of laying its eggs in other birds' nests. The association is common in medieval folklore and iconography. English usage first appears about 1250 in the Nightingale, it was characterized as an overtly blunt term in John Lydgate's "Fall of Princes", c. 1440. Shakespeare's writing referred to cuckolds, with several of his characters suspecting they had become one; the word implies that the husband is deceived. The female equivalent cuckquean first appears in English literature in 1562, adding a female suffix to the cuck. A related word, first appearing in 1520, is wittol, which substitutes wit for the first part of the word, referring to a man aware of and reconciled to his wife's infidelity. In Western traditions, cuckolds have sometimes been described as "wearing the horns of a cuckold" or just "wearing the horns".
This is an allusion to the mating habits of stags, who forfeit their mates when they are defeated by another male. In Italy, the insult is accompanied by the sign of the horns. In French, the term is "porter des cornes", used by Molière to describe someone whose consort has been unfaithful. In German, the term is "jemandem Hörner aufsetzen", or "Hörner tragen", the husband is "der gehörnte Ehemann". Rabelais wrote the Tiers Livers of Gargantua and Pantagruel in 1546, by which time the symbol of the horns was "so well-known and over-used that the author could avoid making reference to it". Molière's L'École des femmes is the story of a man who mocks cuckolds and becomes one at the end. In Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, "The Miller's Tale" is a story that humorously examines the life of a cuckold. In Chinese usage, an altogether different allusion is used, when the cuckold is said to be "戴綠帽子", which derives from the sumptuary laws used in China from the 13th to the 18th centuries that required the males in households with prostitutes to wrap their heads in a green scarf.
An abbreviation of cuckold, the term cuck has been used by the alt-right to attack the masculinity of an opponent. It was aimed at other conservatives, whom the alt-right saw as ineffective. Unlike the traditional definition of the term, in fetish usage a cuckold or wife watching is complicit in their partner's sexual "infidelity". If a couple can keep the fantasy in the bedroom, or come to an agreement where being cuckolded in reality does not damage the relationship, they may try it out in reality. However, the primary proponent of the fantasy is always the one being humiliated, or the "cuckold": the cuckold convinces his lover to participate in the fantasy for them, though other "cuckolds" may prefer their lover to initiate the situation instead; the fetish fantasy does not work at all. Psychology regards cuckold fetishism as a variant of masochism, the cuckold deriving pleasure from being humiliated. In Freudian analysis, cuckold fetishism is the eroticization of the fears of infidelity and of failure in the man's competition for procreation and the affection of females.
In his book Masochism and the Self, psychologist Roy Baumeister advanced a Self Theory analysis that cuckolding was a form of escaping from self-awareness, at times when self-awareness becomes burdensome, such as with perceived inadequacy. According to this theory, the physical or mental pain from masochism brings attention away from the self, which would be desirable in times of "guilt, anxiety, or insecurity", or at other times when self-awareness is unpleasant.
