    Look at the timing of this!
    After the shut down!
    After the sacking of Timbuktu
    After the colonization of Libya, and new AFRICOM troops in Africa
    After the media attack on the Black man
    After rap moguls dissing Black history

    Why come back with that "oh dont Blame the White man" crap, just now since 2010 ?

    Repudiating an Apologist: Skip Gates’ "End the Slavery Blame-Game" Nonsense

    Black people have paid the price for every step in Henry Louis Gates' ascent into the halls of power and prestige. The Harvard professor “has allowed himself to become an apologist for peoples and nations who do not want to accept responsibility for the greatest transgression against human rights in history, the holocaust of enslavement.”

    Repudiating an Apologist:Skip Gates’ "End the Slavery Blame-Game" Nonsense
    by Dr. Ron Daniels
    It was the insatiable need/demand for free labor to make the colonies of the Americas profitable which triggered the trans-Atlantic slave trade.”
    Renowned Harvard Professor Henry "Skip" Gates recently wrote an Editorial Opinion piece entitled "Ending the Slavery Black-Game [3]" which was prominently featured in the New York Times. Professor Gates argues that certain African nations and leaders played major roles in capturing Africans and selling them to European slave traffickers. Therefore, from his perspective, Africans were equally complicit in the holocaust of enslavement, thereby nullifying any claim for reparations for the cultural, mental, spiritual and physical damages inflicted on Africans in America. It appears the point of Professor Gates' Op-Ed piece is to silence the demand for reparations once and for all by shifting the burden for enslavement and the subsequent centuries of enforced labor, colonialism and apartheid on to the shoulders of Africans. In short, if Africans had not captured and sold their own people, the trans-Atlantic slave trade and development of the "peculiar institution" would not have transpired.
    I'm sure Professor Gates' position provides relief and comfort to some in White America who are tired of hearing African Americans "complain" about the adverse effects of enslavement on the evolution of the Black community in the U.S. and the demand for reparations. After all, if an African American of such prestige and prominence can say that there is no need for reparations, then it must be so. Of course this is not the first time Professor Gates has fancied himself standing up against "misguided" claims and positions by his own people. It was not so long ago that he emerged as the self-appointed hit man on a mission to discredit Afro-centricity and African-centered education as "pseudo" disciplines. When leading scholars like Dr. John Henrik Clarke, Dr. Leonard Jeffries, Dr. Charshee McIntyre, Dr. James Turner, Sonia Sanchez, Dr. Molefe Asante, Dr. Maulana Karenga and a host of others were contending that the goal of Black Studies/Africana Studies must be "education for liberation," it was Professor Gates who sided with the academic establishment in.....http://www.blackagendareport.com/co...t-skip-gates’-end-slavery-blame-game-nonsense
