We only learn what America has taught us about our specific race.

    …if you only rely on the system for your education you lose! They are too preoccupied with being superior to be worried about how their ancestors subjugated yours and withheld what they knew about your culture…it was about you becoming someone else.

    …You do however have the freedom to educate yourself and read some African American and African Historical scholars…like Lerone Bennett Jr. and Ivan De Sertima…

    …Van Sertima’s book, “They Came Before Columbus” recounts the Afro Hispanic descendants of the Moors ( Black N. Africans ) who enslaved the Iberian Peninsula from the 8th to the 15thCenturies. They explored the Americas before Columbus did and established Colonies throughout the Americas NORTH AND SOUTH.

    …I you refer to yourself as Black Only, then you are aligning yourself with the color cast that was chosen for you as the lesser of White. Both are race terms that have different histories, but mean the same thing..Color. As an African American, you align yourself with the quest to rediscover out heritage and learn our roots for identity and history’s sake. If you are just a color, you start from here, from Slavery!
