The use & excuse of slavery must end. I’d like a laundry list of Black accomplishments taught in schools all over the country as the true black history of America. Black people need to see how historically they’ve been, a success in America despite parties. I’m not saying “our” history is more important… it’s that Blacks need a newer reference point of American values than what occurred through slavery. Black people need to know that they don’t need government programs in order to succeed. Exactly… we need references where Black people were successful without Government dependency. A real US History explained in a true positive light, that will inspire and rekindle human potential, and the pursuit of excellence, over that of being a new kept people destined for lower wage jobs. We need to rise above that education system that teaches the values of the political race baiters. But so it seems that neither party is really interested in edifying Black people to their contributions includes the NAACP, as worthwhile contributions in making improvements to American society as a whole. So the Democrats and the Republicans must assume equal guilt for the continued human misery and wasted moneys spent on the war on poverty over the past 40 years. We should stop complaining about the wrongs of our ancestors and that of slavery, for those things we can do nothing about. But this generation must stop hiding their guilt with respect to the war on poverty in hopes to hide this generation wrong just long enough so as not to be held accountable for them.
