I agree with the "fruit of the poisonous tree" philosophy.

I think the most enduring fruit of the poisonous tree of chattel slavery is the embedding the loss of ancestral nationality as irretreivable in the psyche of Americans of unknown African ancestry. I further think this mental condition is the final bondage of chattel slavery, the poisonous tree.

As for revolution, I think the overthrow of our view of our personal authority is the ultimate revolution. Please remember, the institution of slavery did not create sovereign State, but rather a mental state of contrition/acceptance. Overthrowing that state (of mind) is the revolution that frees us.


Ancestral nationality is what was taken.

Ancestral natiionalty is what has been denied.

Ancestral nationality is what fills the void.

Ancestral nationality is what restores identity.
