I have often asked myself why it is that we as a people in this land don't actually know the story of our enslavement? We saw Roots, Mandingo, The Amastad and maybe Goodby Uncle Tom and Beloved. Each of these were fragments of our reality from there to here but none were quite the whole story being that there are so many aspects to it. I could blame the clear people for a lot of this but I'm not. There are even those of our own that I could blame but I don't know who and would love to know who. In my new book I was able to track down over 420 rebellions by our people in Afraka as well as in this Western hemisphere. I know that we have black film makers and producers who 9 times out of 10 with them being in that industry, they would know more concerning what movies were out there or are out there dealing with this subject. I was quite amazed and some what troubled to find that there were over 65 movies made concerning slavery. That's right, 65!!! While I do not expect the clear people to try and show us anything concerning that reality, I am a little curious as to why those of our people who are producers and movie makers didn't expose us to any of them??? I have my own answers of why and that disturbs me also. I'm disturbed because I am now aware that there are stories that we were never told concerning slavery and I really do know why. You see, those who consider themselves to be the chocolate version of the clear people don't want to have anything to do with slavery at all and many of our people would really prefer to act as if that never took place. It could be out of the pain associated with it...it could be out of embarrassment or of the idea that that's a portion of our story that they would rather forget. It doesn't matter what the reason is...the point is that as of 2012 we as a people are still being denied something that we are in a position to take care of for ourselves and aren't. Once you got a couple of hundred million in your bank account, there's really little that clear people can really tell you because money talks and BS walks. When will we become tired of the bS is the question??
