    If I ask any black person who have history or many generations of this country, have you heard of cinderella, snow white and the three dwarves,etc...at least I can get a response of yes.

    If I ask stories in that BIBLE, and have you heard of them, I would get a response of yes.

    Now if I ask of any African (historical) related tale (created and told in America for our SAKES or from AFRICA itself), which SOMEBODY has other than us have CLAIMED and PROFITED enormously, the response would be NO.

    I can UNDERSTAND we knowing BIBLICAL TALES but I dont UNDERSTAND us KNOWING ABOUT SNOW WHITE, CINDERELLA and SUCH.

    WHERE DID WE LEARN THIS? WAS IT IN THE WHITE HOUSE? BEING in that HOUSE TOO LONG away from the COMMUNITY?

    And WHAT HAPPEN TO OUR ANCESTORS TALES. WERE THEY TOO PRIMITIVE?
