This is mentally how many see us in their minds eye & why we are still hearing "the sit down, shut up, go over there, don't walk away from me, dont turn your back on me, answer me when I'm talking to you boy or girl" This is how many feel entitled to speak to us now, it's up to us whether we agree with this or not & if not then, know your rights, position to be in authority by education, accomplishments, advancement, ownership. Instead diamonds in your teeth, be the diamond broker, own the diamond store, Let us take back all the resources stolen from us.
Black people did not “come to this country seeking a better life.” They were kidnapped from their homes in Africa, dragged in chains and loaded onto slave ships--treated not like human beings but like things, commodities to be traded and used to enrich others. Tens of millions of enslaved Africans died before even reaching America, so terrible were the conditions on the slave ships. Those who survived the trip and were then sold to plantation owners. #BlackHistory #BlackLivesMatter #Slavery
