CONTINUED FROM PART TWO

In looking back at our story in America which is always 20/20 because the events have already taken place and are available to look at from every angle as a means of studying them for the truth, a horrific picture of our real sickness begins to emerge. The horrific nature of our sickness is not one that began with us but with our historic enemy and oppressor that we over time began to incorporate into our lives as if it was our own way of life. Let us then examine who we were, who we became and who we now are as well as the reasons why.

There are times when a spade must be called a spade and in the alcoholics programs and drug programs, the very first thing that they learn is that they have to "admit that they are an alcoholic or drug addict." It is only when we are man and woman enough to admit what our problem is that we can begin the road to recovery or healing. I'm going to begin this writing with slavery in America because there are too many of our people who do not know what our African reality was prior to coming here. Sure, some of us saw "Roots, Shaka Zulu" and other stories made for television...but in all seriousness, those shows don't even begin to inform our people of the history and legacy of our reality that the present world now functions off of.

We often read in books about the different numbers of slaves that were brought to America, South America, Jamaica and the Carribean Islands that we now call Puerto Rico, Domenico, Haiti and Cuba. The truth of the matter is that "no slaves were ever brought to the western world." What was brought here were "prisoners of war." Why were they prisoners of war? They were prisoners of war because they were prisoners who knew their history, culture, language and everything else. You can not make a slave of anyone who knows who they are...they can "only be prisoners of war" who have to be constantly monitored and kept away from the rest of the Africans. Why would this be so?

It would have had to be this way because it was the newly arriving Africans who would pose the greatest threat of rebellion. In light of understanding this, just who was it that the terminology of "slave applied to?" The terminology that we now call "slave" had to apply to the offspring or children of those prisoners of war from Africa. It was the born children that were separated from their parents who would learn the new language of their masters. It was the born children who would be non rebellious and loyal to the white conqueror because they were born into a life that they would have perceived as being natural. With no languages, culture, beliefs or history other than what their oppressor exposed them to, they were literal beast of burden or work horses from childhood on up. In fact, in certain states of the south there were breeding plantations for just this purpose.

We tend to look at slavery as a southern reality when it was not always that way...at least not in America. In America the north and south were essentially divided. The south was agricultural while the north was industrial. The north needed the cotton for manufacturing. They equally needed the sugar and food produced by the south. Because the north was industrial, it was the north that produced the slave ships to go to Africa and bring them back to the south. In fact, outside of South Carolina which had the largest slave population, New York was number two. Since many of our people incorrectly believe that these ships came from Europe to America,you will be able to review the following information in part four.
