Until the lion has his or her own storyteller, the hunter will always have the best part of the story.
How much TRUE HISTORY U know is how far YOUR CHILDREN will grow.
Knowledge of Your History + Knowledge of Their History=Equality
0 years + (-150 years)= (-150 years) of OPPRESSION
I had this insight while watching a local Sesquicentennial Play with my family tonight. Out of a fairly crowded theatre...there were probably 10 African Americans in the playhouse. That means our family made up 50% of ALL AFRICAN AMERICANS.
When WE DO NOT take the time to educate our children about OUR OWN FAMILY GENEAOLOGY... and then
... we only learn the NEGATIVE ASPECTS of THEIR GENEAOLOGY...DUH.
U HAVE HIDDEN AND BLATANT RACISM passed down generation after generation.
U HAVE AFRICAN AMERICAN CHILDREN MARGINALIZED IN PUBLIC CLASSROOMS because they DO NOT have enough HOME EXPOSURE to their own proud and precious family heritage, cultures and legacy.
They are NOT EQUIPPED to compete.
The equation CAN NOT prepare or equip them to succeed on EQUAL mindset with peers from other cultures who ARE EQUIPPED with their history.
What is taught in school is not a substitute to what MUST BE TAUGHT AT HOME.
Stop waiting around for someone to DO this for U.
DO IT YOURSELF AT HOME.
"U CAN DO IT.
WE CAN HELP."
