Africans weren’t freed!
They fought for their freedom, they killed the evil slave masters, slavery was stopped because of that, not because of some moral white supremacist realisation.
Don’t get it twisted, teach me the truth!
Teach me of the embassy’s the Congo had in Italy…Teach me about how African Egypt was the blueprint for modern civilisation before it was invaded…Teach me of the Haitian revolution and how the slaves constantly fought the slave masters. Teach me why I am where I am today, not because I was “allowed” but because I was needed. Teach me of the first person to perform open heart surgery, or who really built the White House…Teach me about the moors, teach me about what really happened. Not from a ‘12 years a slave’ biased perspective. I can’t deal with these stories of helplessness, yes Africans were enslaved but they fought themselves free. It wasn’t given to them willingly. Research the civil war…Research why Lloyd’s bank was first started. Why do you think that the slave owners were given reparations for their loss of “property” and not the people who were enslaved?
How vagrancy was made illegal so that the homeless African Americans were then sent to prison to break rocks in a chain gang…it was just Slavery rebranded.
How the most successful rappers are the same ones don’t uplift, but who speak of black on black violence. The same “artists” who glorify going to prison, literally glorifying slavery. How the war on drugs is just a war on race and it hasn’t worked.
How there were no 40 acres and a mule, just ghettos created with subways built, so that no business would pass through the neighbourhood. How Tulsa, Oklahoma was the only ever recorded in-country air strike in American history, justified because it was a prospering black town.
How Caribbean’s were brought to Britain to rebuild it after the war, not just because the British were giving handouts.
Teach me about the 54th Massachusetts African American regiment that helped win the American civil war.
Teach me this in school, teach me this in college, teach me this at the bus stop daily, in the papers regularly. Each one teach one,
