Re: “How integration led to the decline of black-owned businesses

And a good bit of white ppl don't know the real history either. They know what ppl got together and decided on what they wanted the masses to know. Ppl do lie and they do hold back truth. Time for everyone to learn what has been done so we can make sure that we are not currently making the same mistakes that can ultimately have us repeating the same thing in our future. Your past makes you who you are today.

Re: “How integration led to the decline of black-owned businesses

Another big problem that we as an African family has is that there is always a white person in the mix telling us what OUR problems are what WE need to fix and we don't have the balls to tell them to shut the hell up. Of course a white person would tell us to let go of the past and discourage us from thoroughly studying what happened to us. It makes them look bad. But it is 100% ok for them to teach OUR babies in THEIR schools THEIR history that also happened so long ago. But they are not encouraged to let it go. So why should we and they are exempt from letting the past go? It is disrespectful on so many levels when one suggests that you are told to forget the roots that spawned the tree. A rapist and the defender(s) would be only one(s) that would suggest to the victim that they should just get over it. It was so long ago. Let the past be the past. There will be lingering lasting effects from the trauma. Her view on men in itself may change. She may resent them. She may deal with low self worth and become your local slut. Hey, it happens. Slavery in itself was something that lasted from generations to generations. While wealth and power was passed on the opposite side pain, sadness, fear, mis-education, blood, sweat, and tears was being passed on the other side. Africans should never forget. And should not let anyone tell you to do so.
