Only fools would ever allow someone who has robbed, raped, and murdered you to convince you to “get over it”. White people are quick to tell black people to “get over it” while avoiding the conversation about repaying back the wealth they attained through the destruction of black civilizations. Africans are responsible for all of Europe’s wealth. Always keep that in perspective.

At the end of the day black people built this country and have nothing to show for it…White folks call blacks “lazy” obviously have a very short memory and insight of the history of this country.While blacks were being tortured to give America a 400 year headstart on the rest of the world White Folks were lounging around looking at the stars and shit. Then they used the labor to build systems to insure that their descendants kept the money the made off the slaves. That old slave money that still benefit white families today in 2014.Learn ya history. Watch Ya mouth…PeacePost made by @solar_innerg#sancophaleague
Does this symbol still resonate with the people?
"The bias against black hair is as old as America itself. In the 18th century, British colonists classified African hair as closer to sheep wool than human hair. Enslaved and free blacks who had less kinky, more European-textured hair and lighter skin — often a result of plantation rape — received better treatment than those with more typically African features.
After Emancipation, straight hair continued to be the required look for access to social and professional opportunities. Most black people internalized the idea that their natural hair was unacceptable, and by the early 20th century wore it in straightened styles often achieved with dangerous chemical processes or hot combs, or they wore wigs.
It wasn’t until the 1960s that the Black Power movement declared that “black is beautiful” — and not least unstraightened natural black hair. Soon the Afro became a popular style, first at protests and political rallies and eventually on celebrities from Pam Grier to Michael Jackson.”
I am thoroughly angered that we are still fighting for our humanity. We must all be involved in this fight.
