You will never be free if you don’t learn your history and part of that lesson requires that you do your own self-learning before you accept the rhetoric of our biased history books. The world likes to paint black people as insignificant figures of this country. We are seen as poor, vulnerable and a demographic that lacks power. It is ok for blacks to be outcasts because the world thinks that we are useless.
But it is time to change the discussion and be honest about the true contributions that our ancestors have made toward western societies and most of the industrial revolution. Without slavery, there would be no America.
