My brotha it's gonna take SELF-IDENTITY and SELF-LOVE. And acceptance of other folks point of view outside of the usual "masters" propaganda regarding the history of slavery in the continent of Africa. I remember watching the movie Sarafina starring Whoopi Goldberg. There were two pivotal scenes: (1) When Whoopi began teaching the real story of her [I think it was South Africa] country's subjugation by Europeans to her students and (2) When the powers that be tossed her off a building for telling that story.
We need to be OPENED to the TRUTH...and variations of the truth cuz no two African countries experienced the same type of HORROR. And somewhere in all that social destruction over the last 4 or 5 thousand years lies....the CORE truth that connects each African nation with the secret of their dismantlement. But if you have the "oppressor" telling their story of heroic bullshyte over and over, generation to generation, people begin to believe it and the REAL truth become hostage and imprisoned for what now seems like ions and ions. Sprinkle that with [kinda graphic now] FGM and castration-which is removing the base of forming continual life naturally, give it a little fake ceremony[these ARE still people who massa knows need some form of social relief] and whoola! Bloody slave tactic now called tradition becomes culture and [real] TRUTH[about how all this came to the land] becomes myth. And anyone who thinks OUTSIDE of that...are either ostracized or accused of witchcraft[which is a pagan European belief system introduced into Africa].
This method is DONE all over the world where there are people of color. From Australia to Africa to South America to North America to the Islands. I remember going to Hawaii and was STUNNED absolutely STUNNED to see black people as a part of the "secret" Hawaiian culture prior to European contact. It is not openly said but the Hawaiians in their own way keep that knowledge of black ancestors out there for all to see so that each person can come to their own conclusions cuz what happened there again happened everywhere there are people of color.
So until blackfolks put their big folks pants/panties on? And stop fighting each other? And killin each other? And stop demeaning and belittling each other? And stop sabotaging any effort for progress for our people? And realize that those are just slave distractions....we will continue to be zombies i.e. the walking dead. Cuz massa NEVER ever was our savior! The truth is we were his. But!
