The Stomp out Verbal Abuse Initiative Presents; The Know.Yourself.Love.Yourself.Movement K.Y.L.Y.

M As I sit beneath a bright light I write and thoughts of out formation invade my insight. Pondering the rise of a sun on a summer day, as the sun rise so does our lives, so does our conceptions of what life is. I magnify my minds thoughts toward, us as humans and our nature of relating to one another. These nine pages are some of what I have found. We must first begin with ourselves before we can properly gauge or judge anyone outside of self. When we attempt to correct others before we correct ourselves we run the risk of being considered hypocritical. Research the great seer Marcus M. Garvey who said “without confidence you are twice defeated, for you have defeated yourself even before you have started”. This leads me to the topic of this paper and the reason for its divine existence on the physical plane. Our main focus in this part of the movement, is attempting what we term a ‘Stomp Out Verbal Abuse Initiative’, bringing awareness to our youth. Helping teach our youth the truth of how and why we have so little respect for ourselves and our ancestral legacy. Don’t get me wrong, insecurities spread across all color lines and cultures. True as that may be the children of former slaves in North America have much deeper rooted insecurities, for obvious though frequently ignored reasons. Being an offspring of some of those slaves I have every right to voice my concerns. I am free and correct to give self diagnoses of these insecurities, from evidence of personal experience. No not just a so called expert point of view, but a living reality as evidence. I want you to remember as you read this; racism is mild compared to self hate. I will now begin with the fact that for me in my most impressionable years my generation of peers talked very harshly about each other. While doing research on this subject, I have personally asked African Americans, had they experienced the same behavior, all said yes. How does such ugly behavior tend to show up identical in all the generations this side of slavery? Why do we tease each other and when does teasing go from harmless to harmful? Is there ever a group who are more affected than others? Yes, of course there is going to be times when some can handle what others can’t, and us as an oppressed people fresh out of slavery could not participate in teasing of any kind and it be helpful. Though black people are not suicidal this would be equal to tearing someone down emotionally who is already at their lowest and ready to commit suicide. As the saying goes you reap what you sow and though we don’t kill ourselves literally, we do so by killing others of our same community. To kill our brothers as Cain killed Abel is in reality genocide, as well as suicide. Really they are the same because to kill your genes is to kill yourself. These sessions of belittlement called the dozens or talking about each others mothers are very harmful to our mentalities. The psychological damage done for a cheap laugh is not worth it. It really is pointing to a sick pleasure unseen to the naked eye and common participant. This can in no way aid our youth toward having healthy thoughts about themselves or others. If we as parents just sit around and say “hey everybody gets teased” our world is headed for great disaster, and I will explain why. Our very existence depends on our ability to learn who we are, where we come from, and where we are going. The majority of blacks in America think of none of the above.

At 5 years old, 9, 12, 17, as a child, these are our years of hope and imagination. Do to such negative spirited games; these years are spent looking at life through eyes of doubt, as one who feels less not greater. I am not only told by the world at large that I am low on the totem pole; I hear it from my own people as well. As a youth for many of us, we didn’t care about what other people said, at least not more than we did our so called friends and family, and these are those who commit that betrayal. Why is it we enjoy such negativity, such aggravation and agitation to the minds of those so close to us. Some people may argue that such buffoonery as this has enabled them to acquire tough skin, which is highly prized in a world of deceit and trickery. Tough skin at what risk is the question. The side effects out way having tough skin, the people that go crazy or become obese or bleach there skin and perm their hair, all out way tough skin. The ways these games kill self esteem are too many to mention, just ask Michael Jackson. When we participate in such negativity and throw these comments toward our brothers and sisters who look just like us, it provides a habitat for self hate to thrive. I guess this is what the slave maker Willie Lynch means when he stated this condition we are in would be “self refueling and self generating for hundreds of years maybe even thousands of years”. When you have time Google the Willie Lynch letter, this letter proves what we will discuss later about this behavior being slave behavior. The refueling of this self hate comes in when we talk about our friends’ short comings and flaws. We do this and plant the seed of self hate into them and in return they tell us of our short comings and plant that little seed of self hate into us. Now both of our feelings are hurt in some way, so we both keep throwing these stones. The psychological sickness comes through the fact that we feel better from making each other hurt with what made us hurt. One wise man said an eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth, another wiser man realizing the nature of what he was dealing with said turn the other cheek. Why should taking your eye out because you took mine out be justice or fair? We all are left blind and toothless. When you point out my flaw rather than look at me as being a reflection of my creator it makes me feel as if mistakes were made in my creation. We are in a mental battle of words that are slashing away at our character like an ax to a tree. “You so fat when you wear yellow we think it’s the school bus”. “Oh yea well you so black when you got off the bus the check oil light came on”. Now as a 5 or 7 year old they are really just repeating behavior they saw older children or adults do. The vicious cycle continues starting at this young age of 5, if not younger; this is where the refueling starts. From age five on into adult hood, from preschool to college we practice this behavior. Talking bout everybody we could, either back biting or to their face it doesn’t matter to us. Not easy is this poisonous lifestyle to break? I have seen mothers of the church and so called saints, still acting like they are in middle school, talking about folks. This self hate has been eating away at your character and integrity since age 5. This self hate has been like erosion wearing away at your soul. All the generations, this side of slavery have been enduring this suicide and self destruction. Now is the time that we fight against this generational curse. We will never know or be able to see our true potential without putting an end to the baggage we’re carrying from slavery. We get mad when some one like me talks about it; we still behave as those slaves who had lost knowledge of themselves. Our true character can’t blossom or flourish because we have numbed ourselves of true feelings. We have become numb. We are numb in an attempt to control the effects of our feelings being hurt as children.

Though such behavior of standing in a circle and pointing at the holes in each others shoes becomes politically incorrect as an adult, the behavior is still hard to stop. As an adult it becomes a bit more discreet, yet in many ways more destructive and definitely more hateful. More hateful because as a child you may have knew it was wrong, yet as an adult you find ways to justify your actions. As a child damn near everything you do is wrong, so children take it a little less severely, as an adult, ‘you wronged me’ or talk about me, I may kill you. Children also are more able to forgive, because as a child, that hate, ego, and other attributes of damaged character are not as prevalent. Adults who were affected by such negativity as a child, brings these insecurities everywhere they go, definitely into the work place. We become less likely to see our peers with respect or in a positive light. Why, because we can’t respect others if we don’t respect ourselves. We go through life either feeling less than those who have masked their flaws to the point where ours seem to be more, and superior to those who can’t mask their flaws as good as we do. Never being one able to recognize each person for their originality and uniqueness. Always pre judging, always measuring color, height, and weight, not to glorify the creators creativity, but to find a way we can find something on them that makes us better. The problem is not that we do it, as much as it is why we feel the need to. The reason we have to put another down to feel better about ourselves is because that’s what we learned as children. We were like a half grown tree or a half baked cake. Not knowing what we were growing to be, we believed what our friends told us about ourselves. Not being able to foresee the future and the fruit that would grow from that tree that is us, we fed into to the flaws that were thrown at us. Not able to foresee the finished cake after it has risen, been layer, iced and sprinkled, instead we believed in the flaws. The flaws really weren’t flaws at all but merely nature taking its course. We were too young to understand growth, yet not too young to do things that would stunt that growth. As it is said ‘the actors mask is apt to become his face’. You told Bookie he would never be anything, he would never get a hair cut and would always have holes in his shoes and socks. Even though he was a half baked cake and destined to be a doctor he began to wear the mask of what you stated. Now 20 years later he is a bum and drug addict. Here is another scenario of the same person Bookie; he didn’t become a dope user but a drug dealer. Now he wears the best clothes and is well groomed all the time, yet the fact remains he took chances of going to jail or being killed in order to prove his peers wrong. Remember this Bookies destiny was to be a doctor not a drug dealer or user. Even though the dealer may be the lesser of the 2 evils it remains an evil. He opted not to go to school, become a doctor and help save lives while making legal money. He instead needed a hair cut now, he needed new shoes now. This all took place because he was made to feel bad about his current condition. He felt he had to move quick, not only to prove his peers wrong but to prove to him that he was more than how he was made to feel about himself. Now he is dead or in jail or had to kill another brother who wanted to rob him for what he had. The one who died trying to rob him, he had also been teased and critised. The cycle goes on and on, statistics and facts show that nothing positive is coming from us behaving so ridiculously.

Now let’s look back to the person that argues that this toughens the skin and is needed to make it in today’s society. The small percentage of those who may be motivated to do the most positive after such negative behavior is slim to none. The statistic on black males in prison and black women with aids and on welfare, do not reflect a positively motivated people. How much greater would the percentage of college graduates be among African Americans if we practiced only games and behavior of uplift. We would have no need for the tough skin mentioned before. That tough skin is nothing more than ignorance, ignoring the fact that you are numbing yourself to reality. To numb oneself to a certain reality or any reality for that matter does not make that reality cease to exist. Just because you can throw negative words toward it, to try and cover the pain of that reality does nothing to solve the problem. You just loose yourself beneath all that tough skin. The skin becomes so tough it is like iron and you become inhuman and a robot of sorts with phony emotions and no soul. We need not hard tough skin that weighs one down but skin as soft as feathers, feathers that allow us to fly above all the haters and the drama. We have the ability to fly and soar like hawks and falcons. Never being told the truths of ourselves is why we don’t know we once flew literally and not just in planes but the way some of us still do in our dreams. We must abolish these slave habits, for it is written in scripture “as a man thinks so he is” and in another place “life and death is in the power of the tongue”. I call them slave habits for I have read “How to make a slave” and see the same tactics spoken of there in. here is a quote from some of the Willie Lynch letter “ “Greetings, Gentlemen. I greet you here on the bank of the James River in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and twelve. First, I shall thank you, the gentlemen of the Colony of Virginia, for bringing me here. I am here to help you solve some of your problems with slaves…. “Ancient Rome would envy us if my program is implemented. As our boat sailed south on the James River, named for our illustrious King, whose version of the Bible we cherish,”… “I caught the whiff of a dead slave hanging from a tree, a couple miles back. You are not only losing valuable stock by hangings, you are having uprisings, slaves are running away, your crops are sometimes left in the fields too long for maximum profit,”…. “In my bag here, I HAVE A FULL PROOF METHOD FOR CONTROLLING YOUR BLACK SLAVES. I guarantee every one of you that, if installed correctly, IT WILL CONTROL THE SLAVES FOR AT LEAST 300 HUNDREDS YEARS. My method is simple. Any member of your family or your overseer can use it. I HAVE OUTLINED A NUMBER OF DIFFERENCES AMONG THE SLAVES; AND I TAKE THESE DIFFERENCES AND MAKE THEM BIGGER. I USE FEAR, DISTRUST AND ENVY FOR CONTROL PURPOSES…. Take this simple little list of differences and think about them. On top of my list is “AGE,” but it’s there only because it starts with an “a.” The second is “COLOR” or shade. There is INTELLIGENCE, SIZE, SEX, SIZES OF PLANTATIONS, STATUS on plantations, ATTITUDE of owners, whether the slaves live in the valley, on a hill, East, West, North, South, have fine hair, course hair, or is tall or short. Now that you have a list of differences, I shall give you an outline of action, but before that, I shall

assure you that DISTRUST IS STRONGER THAN TRUST AND ENVY STRONGER THAN ADULATION, RESPECT OR ADMIRATION”. … “The Black slaves after receiving this indoctrination shall carry on and will become self-refueling and self-generating for HUNDREDS of years, maybe THOUSANDS. Don’t forget, you must pitch the OLD black male vs. the YOUNG black male, and the YOUNG black male against the OLD black male. You must use the DARK skin slaves vs. the LIGHT skin slaves, and the LIGHT skin slaves vs. the DARK skin slaves. You must use the FEMALE vs. the MALE, and the MALE vs. the FEMALE. You must also have white servants and overseers [who] distrust all Blacks. But it is NECESSARY THAT YOUR SLAVES TRUST AND DEPEND ON US. THEY MUST LOVE, RESPECT AND TRUST ONLY US. Gentlemen, these kits are your keys to control. Use them. Have your wives and children use them, never miss an opportunity. IF USED INTENSELY FOR ONE YEAR, THE SLAVES THEMSELVES WILL REMAIN PERPETUALLY DISTRUSTFUL. Thank you gentlemen.” Now this is just his sells pitch, this is just his little infomercial to get you to buy what he was selling. Once you get into the methods and the actual rituals that went along with all of this, you get into some of the most devilish and wicked practices known to man. We are indulging in an at least 300 year old doctrine of making slaves. It’s just like a plane or ship that is set to automatic pilot, even though the once slave master is not at the helm of the potters wheel, the goal of slave making is still in effect. The slave has learned the job so well he does it to himself and this is what this form of hypnosis scripted by Willie Lynch and others created to do. When you read closely he says “My method is simple. Any member of your family or your overseer can use it”. The overseer spoken of here and in most cases was a nigger placed as a police man of sorts over other niggers. The word nigger here is just a black object, nothing with heart, soul, morals, or any knowledge of what he truly is. The shame of that word does not make the truth of it unseen. I am more than a color of an object, but my blackness as an essence and as a state is the most superior according to scientific fact and even scriptural proof. The pyramids and the writings on the walls, the hieroglyphs and pictures show a most superior and excellent African. How then have we gone from that greatness, to finding entertainment in degrading each other? Some history even points to the games themselves starting in slavery. Such games as ‘my master is better than your master,’ not realizing the better master would have already let you go to freedom. Second of all before I go any further I’m sure many have begun to thank I am blaming the white or the wrong man for our situation. All I am attempting to do is spread awareness on a serious problem in our community. The so called white man or European does have a hand in this but we are responsible for not trying harder to know better. We must not blame others for things we do to ourselves once we know better. The biggest crime of our former slave owners is the abducting or kidnapping us from Africa. The greatest sin after stealing us from our home was stripping us of our native language, culture, religion and god. This is why we can’t help but expose these Europeans, who were kicked out of Europe and had to find some where to live. They came to America and stole this land from the natives, who were Africans as well as Indians already here. They stole more of us from Africa to help cultivate newly stolen land.

With all this stealing going on, the media can still manage to make society believe that blacks are the biggest thieves and most untrustworthy of all the races on the planet. To strip a person of who they are, to steal his essence from him is an abominable sin and a crime of shame. Leaving him like a man found with amnesia, dumb to the facts of everything that makes him who he is. The modern white man pleads his innocence, yet he reaps the benefits of all the methods of slave making set in place by his ancestors. As was said before the methods of making a slave are running on automatic pilot in this day and time, so though not at the helm, the ship is still being guided to the port destined hundreds of years ago. Though this modern white man claims no responsibility for causing the blow to the head that place the black man in this state of amnesia, he continues to capitalize from the bewildered mans status. This modern day white man has had the wallet of this black man with amnesia since he inherited power, yet he did nothing to help set this man back in his proper place. He withholds even unto this day, the information contained in that wallet that will allow this stripped man to once again find his home and way of life. If that wasn’t being wicked enough, he points this man in the opposite direction of where he would be able to walk on his own and find himself. He points the man away from his true name, culture, and god and instead points him to the name, culture, and god of pale people. This makes the once physical slave under chains and shackles a subtle willing slave. Teaching the man to love other than self and kind, this action causes the reaction of hate of self and kind. A test was done on 4 to 6 year olds with white and black baby dolls. The little black girls chose white baby dolls not because they were taught to hate black babies they just were taught everything white is good so the white dolls must be good. Look up black and white in the dictionary and see over 90% of black things are bad and 90% of white things are good. Those who authored those things became the authority without being authenticated by truth. Angels wear white bad guys wear black, angel food cake is white and devils food cake is chocolate or black. Every thing dark is bad and light is good yet we all come from the darkness of our mothers’ womb. According to the bible god was in darkness and said let there be light, so good couldn’t have started with light because god was in darkness first. Light can’t be the start of intelligence or knowledge because the intelligence in darkness created light. The reason these things are placed in our mind is for racist reasons of maintaining superiority. I would have to see myself as inferior when living in modern day American society, if I adhere to the many word games played upon minorities living here. The man with amnesia not knowing any better, can’t help but to see his 400 year old enemy as a friend. He has to see his enemy as the only one worthy of respect and honor and love. All this can be done because we were stripped of our own language so we have to depend on our enemy to tell us what a word means. The same enemy who was proud to be the black mans killers, in a time when it was more politically correct he took pictures. This man took Pictures of him with gun in hand standing in front of a hanging Negro. The same enemy who called the black man three fifths human, leaving out the fact that, the part that wasn’t human was divine and had been stripped and surgically removed from the nature of the black family through the methods mentioned earlier in this paper. As we can see this is much bigger than just calling each other names and back biting. This is bigger than your mama so fat her belt is the equator, oh no this is ‘Return of the Jedi deep’ this is ‘Matrix trilogy’ deep and even deeper is this spell of hypnosis cast on this former slave, promoted by Schools, TV, Radio and every other media source available.

Now let’s leave the man with amnesia for just a second and travel to the animal kingdom. Once you take a lion or tiger from its natural environment, feed it, bathe it and then have it bound in a cage, it is then a broken animal. Keep that animal away for a while and the veterinarian will tell you ‘that animal will not survive not to mention strive’ even though he is placed back in the wild. He looses the senses of what it is to be free. Even a still wild animal like an alligator, if they eat from a human they must be killed, because they now see humans as a source of food. Now to the human variety, you have a people stolen from home, placed in an unnatural environment, under unnatural conditions. Then subject him to abuse, war, slavery, rape murder and hundreds of years of such treatment. Treating their mother or wife or daughter like nothing in front of their own faces, treating their husbands, sons and fathers like nothing. How I ask is a human, who is much more than the animal, supposed to act after such treatment? You may say well the human should know better than the animal. I say well the human was stripped down to less than an animal and treated in many cases ten times worst. Ponder over that, all of you who may think I am making excuses for a condition rather than doing my best to diagnose that condition. The forced amnesia I spoke of earlier is in actuality equal to the death of a people. This man who knows not himself can’t possibly know his family. When he sees his brother or sister in the street, he sees a stranger. His family having the same condition, when they see him they see a stranger. It’s like the scripture in the bible where John speaks of the light shines in the darkness and the darkness comprehended it not. The light shines here in the face of darkness yet the darkness couldn’t comprehend it. Even though as spoken of before god was in that darkness when he said let there be light. The darkness gave birth to light yet at this point where John is speaking about it; the darkness has amnesia of who it is. The darkness is the parent yet it recognizes not its own sun. In this same way the man knows not his mother who gave birth to him. They speak of the inconsistency of the black family and the single mother epidemic, the baby mama epidemic, what is it? Well when you are stripped from your family constantly and have no control over it. The slave master makes you mate with different women for profit so he can have more slaves. The male slave never was given proper quality time with his child. If he loved the women and his family it didn’t matter because he could be sold away at the drop of a dime. Not only could he be sold off, but any member of his family and he couldn’t protect them or stop that from happening. You do that to anything for hundreds of years and expect an emotionally stable person who can build long lasted friendships and marriages to come out of such pain. This pain caused by slavery involved such abominably sick practices. That being the case, strangers we have become, rather than family. We are empty of our true substance, empty of our truest qualities of life. We became what they called us, niggers or black things. We became stock or cattle, black shells lacking the true essence of our blackness. We only see it for its face value, not for our great past, our hibernating present or our illustriously grandiose future. We became black nothings, like space before scientist discovered the dark matter, which is taught to be the building blocks for everything in the universe. Before they could comprehend it, it was nothing more than space in between objects. The same remains true until we realize our true self, we will be thought of as nothing, when in fact we are the building blocks of everything, just as that dark matter in the universe.

Until we know our self and love our self as a people we will be only black objects or pawns in one big chess game. Until we recover from our hibernation or case of amnesia we are the same as a black car or vase. When we state black on black crime that’s just what it is and nothing more than two of the same color objects. You can’t place the same level of sanity on a person abducted and subjected to worst than animal abuse for 400 yrs or more and then unlock the cage and say you free to go. Some of us do cope better than others with our post traumatic slave syndrome. All I am saying is that many truth movements, many know thy self movements must be enacted before we even begin to see our true potential. We have already shown that in less than a hundred years from slavery we can make it to the highest office in America. This doesn’t prove my diagnosis wrong about being stripped but it proves me right on how far we can get with a knowledge of who we are and where we come from. President Obama has a father from Kenya and a family in Kenya who he was, and is connected to, now how many of us here can say that. The president is also an exception to the rule for other reasons than just his African connection. His mother was white and that gave him ‘inside’ white people connections. He also was able to know how to please black and white do to the fact they both are in his nature. His white family who was in control of his education saw to it that he was educated properly. He graduates from a school where he was considered special because many blacks are not accepted. He knew who he was and there fore knew what he could do and he did it, and I am very honored and proud of that example set for us. My point is what is life without the right knowledge and wisdom of it or proper understanding? Gold is not gold to the untrained eye who knows not its value. A diamond is nothing more than a white rock, if there is not a mind able to weigh and calculate its beauty. The murder rate in the black community is not crime committed by those that know and love themselves. That’s different from two people who know themselves, know the value of life and the power of community. Now the real murderers are those who thought killing was cool long before the movie scar face came out. We had to be taught how to be gangsters, pimps, pushers, and hustlers. We were killed for sport. The sinner and true murderer is the one who knows the black mans greatness and yet kills him. The one who claims to know the value of life and still he destroys it. The scientist of America have revealed to those in power the greatness of the black man even before the first slave ship sailed. He still packed this great black man up whom he knew was great and killed him. The structures we built in Egypt can’t be matched. He needed builders to help build up this new found land or better said newly stolen land. He looked at the greatness of these master builders, as a challenge to be able to say he killed such a great being; this was an ultimate notch on his board or belt. To strip us from the best to the worst was a sport to them. Even today this country is known for its love of sports. The black man was like wild game to be hunted, stolen, sold on slave blocks, stripped and caged. Then after four hundred years or so be set free and told to go catch up with the world and common society. In our native lands we fathered civilization by civilizing others such as our now oppressors who once were very uncivilized and barbaric. Do some research, don’t believe me go check it out for yourself. You can start off with what the European is admitting about himself. Before you chastise me like a good slave for talking too much about your proven enemy, do some research. If you are white and reading this, first of all it’s not for you, so give it to the nearest black person please.

Now that these writings are in the right hands, let me say to my dear brothers and sisters of whom this was intended I am not bashing white folks. If you think that that I am you need to start over at the beginning and see how we have traveled to this point. This is about black people or African Americans not being in a place or state where we can afford to tease, make fun of, or talk about each other. This is written to stomp out verbal abuse not promote it, so follow me carefully. While explaining the reasons we participate in such careless behavior, reasons I have found in my research on the subject. We were led to slavery and slavery tactics as one of the causes of these effects. When discussing slavery in America, how can you not talk about the so called white man or European? I hope I am not considered anti any race, I am forced to speak the truth even though it may seem bitter. If you are really reading you would see that I spoke harsh truths about both races. Truth is truth and as it is written in scripture “the truth shall make you free”. What better note to begin my close with, for what would one in a bound state long for but that which has the power to free him from his cross. That cross that has him pinned down with a nail in his feet keeping him from travel, nails in his hands keeping him from producing and a crown of thorns keeping him from thinking. He longs for the truth that will free him from such a condition. With that urgency in mind I bare witness to truth designed to free him. I was also in his condition and freed. I beg your pardon if I hurt the feelings of you or your white friends whom you feel my words may offend. The youth and their future and safety are worth more to me than the feelings of you or your friends. For those with white friends ask them to help you get what their ancestors promised, forty acres and a mule or mustang. I am not mad at any Caucasians for what they did because I understand the rules of engagement. What I mean is we were killed physically in the past and are being killed mentally and spiritually in the present for one reason. Two races so far apart on the poles can’t rule together. Opposites may attract but water and oil don’t mix. The moon reflects the light of the sun and when the sun is in rule the moon’s light is non existent. You can’t worship a candle’s light in the mist of the sun. We were and are killed for who we are, because our rise is his fall and vise versa. We as ancient scientist placed our self in a form of hibernation to allow them to rule. Now is that time that we were programmed to wake up, and I am just one of many alarm clocks. This is not prejudice at all because prejudice means to pre judge or judge before rather than in hindsight. This is more like post judging after sorting out the facts. Post judgment with tons of factual evidence to back it up. We must gather these facts and allow them to guide us to freedom. Once we know ourselves it will be impossible to fall for the tricks of our proven enemy. We must know ourselves then we will see we are everything our enemy is not. We are not killers by nature; we should be learning what our true nature is. We should be trying to learn what our names before slavery were. We should be learning what our language was before slavery. We know none of this yet we have the nerve to think we can defend the acts of our oppressors. This type of idiocy shows we only think we know what’s best for us. We don’t care anything about Africa, all we want to do is mimic our enemy and be happy doing it. This is why we participate in such foolish games like the dozens and yo mama. Let us now abolish all such behavior. Post traumatic slavery syndrome is something all born Americans suffer from in one form or another. Until we take the proper steps toward self love, respect, and truth we will never be healed from the sickness. This writing is a therapy, for the offspring of the slave that wrote it. May it be a therapy to the slave offspring who reads it. I go as I come, in peace.
