PEACE

EVERY YEAR AT THIS TIME, I THINK OF THE HYPOCRISY ENTRENCHED IN THIS AMERICAN HOLIDAY...I THINK OF BLACK REVOLUTIONARIES WHO TOOK A STAND IN THE 17TH AND 18TH CENTURIES AND WERE BRANDED "MURDERING COWARDS" AND "MONSTERS" FOR DOING WHAT SHOULD COME NATURAL TO ANY RACE OF PEOPLE ATTEMPTING TO OVERTHROW A SYSTEM BENT ON ITS OPPRESSION AND DESTRUCTION...REVOLT. WE HAVE MANY TRUE HEROES WHO DIED IN THE PROCESS OF REVOLT...AS YOU PROBRABLY WELL KNOW...NAT TURNER...DENMARK VASEY...GABRIEL PROSSER...MANY MANY MANY MORE ...AND THERE WAS THE SUCCESSFUL "HAITIAN REVOLUTION"..OF 1791...ALOT OF KNOWLEDGE AND PRIDE HIDDEN FROM OUR CHILDREN BECAUSE OF OUR UNWILLINGNESS TO RESEARCH, DISCUSS AND ELEVATE OUR OWN HEROES;RUSHING TO EMBRACE THEIR INDEPENDANCE DAY, WHICH HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH OUR ANCESTORS INDEPENDANCE; ON THE CONTRARY, INDICATED THE COLONISTS "DEPENDANCE" ON THE "BLACK BACK" FOR FREE LABOR...DEEPENING AND STEADYING THE FOUNDATION OF STOCKHOLDING INSTITUTIONS STILL THRIVING TODAY, WHERE IS THE MORALITY AND PRIDE IN JUST THIS SIMPLE FACT ALONE ??....THIS SUBJECT IS MULTI-FACETED...I COULD GO ON...BUT WHO WILL CHANGE BECAUSE OF WORDS...THE FAMILY TRADITIONS GO TOO DEEP......BLACK AND WHITE.

PEACE AND THANKS 4 THE INPUT
