I have been on various networking sites on the Internet, but whenever the topic of slavery comes up, it seems that people, mostly white people always say, IT IS TIME TO MOVE ON AND FORGET THE PAST. The Jews have endured suffering and hardship during the Nazi reign of terror and after all of these years they have not forgotten. Why must black folks forget something that was so traumic, people who were forcibly removed from their land, sent to a strange land. Family structure destroyed, language gone for ever.. Slavery was brutal and here in the Caribbean it was no picnic. I ask myself, if someone had raped me..would I ever forget..No... I would move on with my life...but I could not forget.
