Was it the same people who told us Fidel Castro is an evil dictator? Was it the same people who told us Saartje Baartman voluntarily allowed them to parade her around Europe naked in a cage? Or maybe it wass the same people who told us the Native Americans were heathen headhunters who went around scalping innocent pilgrims? Now that we have accepted this idea that our ancestors sold us into slavery as a "fact" the white man is trying to absolve himself from having anything to do with slavery. Hey we were just there. Yawl sold each other since you needed the money. We just obliged you. The distorted his story fed to us by our oppressors has gone unquestioned for too long. The question we need to ask is not why the Africans sold us but how do we know they did.
