Responding to the title of the post. If we were to go BACK....[not going back in present times] in terms of our history...we will go back to a rich vibrant culture that NEVER needed the neanderthal European for nothing. As I tell students [which no one points out enough] massa came to US...we didn't come to him. He was unable to care for HIMSELF...and had to go OUT of his country to find a way to survive cuz he couldn't do it where he was OR on his own. And that's huge. As why Trump says that to Black folks but he never mention real white history....cuz why? There no such thang. Only European history- which has a dark, septic, evil, monstrous, unspeakable creepy inhumane past attached to it. Once you understand massa-who he really is....it is then you will regain your power of self-identity and legacy. Cuz his history go all the way back beyond the Greek Dark Ages.....beyond first learning how to make fire.....it begins when he finally looked up and discovered the opened gap of light that led him outta the cave. And that's wasn't that long ago compared to the millions of years African civilization(s) has/have been around. And once you understand massa's lies about us and himself.....then you possess the key to your own destiny and narrative. As why Im always talking about the past-our history and massa's history ( truth is? he's ashamed of it). And Im gonna always talk about Asian history and history in the different Islands/peninsular(s) around the world. Im gonna always talk about the real TRUTH of world history. How it affect us, massa, the Amerindians in both the Americas and America-and the indigenous people. I'm gonna keep talking until I can't anymore. Cuz yall know I don't believe a damn thang massa says and I have said as much over the years. The book burnings [about our outstanding power in the world] were for a reason. And lot of books written about the Black experience before 70s are either out of print or removed from libraries and book stores and replaced with new information about us that are lies lies lies. And I don't want anyone to fall for it. And.....if you're not gonna believe what I say that's cool but NEVER EVER EVER believe what massa says cuz he is a documented LIAR and thief. So do your own research and come up with your own findings that make sense to you-create your voice in this cuz it does MATTER. And most importantly......slavery is not our history! It's massa's. But!
