*In the spirit of Black History (Month). {It should be all year long.}

Black History 365

We are a country of immigrants, blah, blah, blah.

It’s amazing how no one mentions the fact that America is “also” a country built on SLAVERY. Slaves were not immigrants. Slaves were humans in bondage. Slaves didn’t come to America of their own “Free Will”. That fact and reality of slavery cannot become a dead issue. I’m NOT sorry that the history of slavery makes people uncomfortable. History is written by the “Victors”. Obviously, slaves were not the victors, otherwise they wouldn’t have been slaves.

This is why Black History (Month) is so important. If the “Victors” do not or will not tell OUR history, then who will? Black Americans are part of this country, it’s just that we all weren’t immigrants.
