I told him, [They say] its due to the ongoing legacy of white supremacy and slavery. However, before I could say anything else he stopped me in my tracks and said, Hold up! Slavery isnt the reason for all this. Now thats just a lie! If it were slavery then why didnt it affect [us] like this then? We didnt run around shooting each other! He went on to say, Man we were trying to compete with white folks. We were told the next man put his pants on just like you and we competed with each other and them to achieve. We were striving to be better and if slavery did all this then we should have been doing the same thing your generation is doing. I dont know what happened!
At work I am told all that the PATHOLOGY is because of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome. A greater LIE never told. I am that guy, I am sick to death of the LIE, the cultural pathology blamed on me. I refuse to apologize for my life.
An interesting story, however, is it believable that a seven year old says: “ Good, because I want to learn more about Civil Rights! Daddy, you make it fun! “ ?
imo, not helpful
