Reply to "What is your first race-based memory?"

When I was in the third grade, my european math teacher, Mr. Rich, asked each student (primairly 90 percent Black) to stand up and tell the class what they wanted to be when they grow up. Some said lawyers, teachers, doctors, etc. Mainly professional. That cracker, Mr. Rich, told his Black students that we were not meant to be lawyers, teachers, doctors, etc. He told us we were meant to be janitors, maids, street cleaners, etc. No, not professionals; we were meant to work at menial jobs. I was crushed. I went home and told my parents. My mom went up to the school (along with some other parents) and demanded that Mr. Rich be fired. The principal, also european, told the parents he would speak to Mr. Rich but no action was ever taken. Mr. Rich remained a teacher at the school for a few years more then left for a school in the european segregated neighborhood where he resided.

I expierenced so much racial bias in the military I cannot remembaer each and every detail. Believe me, there were situations where I felt like just going off and (you finish off the rest of what I want to say). The europeans in this country have never lost their pro-slavery attitude towards us. When I meet a Black person who tells me they have never expierenced any racial bias, I know I am talking with either a fool or someone who has been extremely forturnate. Probably the former rather than the latter. Racism always has been and always will be. It will never, ever stop. Once you realize this you are somewhat free, mentally. The other part is you have to get away from the devices that mask racism, allows it to fester and continue to enslave you. Just because you have a good job, a benz, cash in the bank, and live in european heaven, etc., don't be lulled into thinking all is well. Don't assume you've made it because as fast as you got it you can lose it. The wealthy Jews in Germany found that out. And what makes you think you are more accepted in this country than the hated Jews in Germany? Wake up, wake up, wake up.

If I were to continue to tell about my experiences with racism it would take all night into tomorrow and on and on. Racism hurts because if is very unfair, extremely cruel and often times hiden. We, the Black race, would not be in the shape and situation we are in had we been racist. We allowed our kindness to blind us to the trickery of the europeans. They used their bible to take our land. The same dog that bit you bit me (one of Pastor Ray Hagins sayings). We may not have come here together, but we are in the same boat now (this is for some of those west indians and others who don't claim to be Black or Afrikan). Hotep my Beautiful Black Brothers and Sisters, listen to www.wblr.com and learn the truth which will make you free. OLU
