I cannot convince you of the vastness of the African struggle, even as it pours into modern day slavery which is still very real to many brown communities worldwide.The Irish had their Diaspora, too. Out of a population of app eight and a half million, in the relatively short space of 60 years over one and a half million starved to death and over five million fled to other countries, mostly America. That represents a decrease in population of 80% in two generations. I think it was worse than the African Diaspora.
You have your ancestors to remember and pay respects to, and I have mine. We will respect it and leave it at that, then, Craig.
