How many times have you heard an ignorant Black Adult say about Black history, I don't want to hear about that, that was yesterday, leave the past in the past.
The past shapes the present. You can never escape the past and those who try are doomed to repeat it. This is the situation that Blacks find ourselves in today. The hands of time are spinning in reverse as old systems have morphed into new forms of oppression ie privatized prisons.
That being said, here is a white man, Chris Tomlinson, exposing the crime of his ancestors, who were slave owners. His exposes how his ancestors owned slaves, cheaped Black sharecoppers and how some of his forefathers talk about Blacks like dogs. On the show with him is a 6th decendant of a slave that Chris Tomlinson's family owned.
He still holds on to the slave masta's name and shared how his father would not share with his children the history of there family under white domination, unfortunately like many ignorant Black do today.
A man without his history is like a tree without roots - Marcus Garvey
