Never Healed

The wounds have never healed...

The recurring nightmares and residue of slavery now haunts our children...

Haunts them in ways that manifest itself in their frustration and anger…

Haunts them where many of them don’t care to hear about history … Don’t care to hear about loving themselves above all else.

The wounds have never healed...

Slave mentality still a reality for many of the descendants of Africa…

Scattered seeds ... The Great African Tree continues to bleed for her lost children, who have been taught and conditioned to forget her…

Our fears have not disappeared…

The MAAFA stories must continue to be told for generations to come…

The stories of Colonization … Enslavement … Castration of Black Men … Jim Crow and his legion … Rape of our women … Displacement of the Black families … Willie Lynch and the White House Pimps, must be told!

Our Wounds have not healed...

We must face the present with energy, vigor, and teach our children to stop calling themselves Nig@**s...

Teach the children, so that generation after generation rediscovers that the strength of black people is like no others…

The strength of Black People will always surface during our darkest hour…

Scattered Seeds of Antiquity ... Survivors of a Black Holocaust, your indomitable Spirit could never be broken.

Our Wounds have not healed…

Our Tears have not stopped … Justice has not come to folks who need it … Racism is still running amuck and setting up shop in the Big White House…

Lost children of the Great African Tree, as long as you remain apart from each other, disrespect each other, not see the Imago-Dei in each other…

Our Wounds Will Never Heal!

Our children will continue the cycle of low production and self-destruction…

Put aside the false pride, stop believing in the Keepers of The Lie and Rise! Rise! Rise!
