Remember

Remember the whips, the ships, the screams, and the beatings of men, women, and children ,until their flesh was hanging by a thread...

Remember the murders, the separations of families, the rapes, the brutalities, and the chains that bounded hands, necks, feet, but never the soul...

I Remember because the wasted blood of so many of my ancestors fill this land...

I Remember because all those promises about Forty-Acres and a Mule were a lie, to stop the Black Waves from Rising...

I Remember because so many of our elders still feel the brunt of some of your ancestors wicked ways...

They still carry the memories of all those laws that regulated their humanity...

I Remember the gory, the fake stories that were put out there as truth to justify the madness, whenever and wherever it showed up...

I Remember because generations after generations of our children are suffering right now, for they are unprepared and don't care about their people's history...

Talk about the extermination and devastation of the Native American's Nations...

Talk about those deadly ovens and gas chambers...

Talk about it so that we can heal from it, learn from it, and grow stronger from it...

Also Remember the losses other races felt when Evil was unleashed on them...

The People Have the Right to Know...
