And these atrocities haven't stopped yet. Today's slavery is called "incarceration," where men of color are warehoused and herded like cattle, in the name of justice without equality.
America and its history were built on lies and deceit.
Even today's history books in school say Christopher Columbus discovered America.
But when he arrived, there were colored men here before him - yet he claims the land was his discovery, and that's continued to be taught in schools, knowing it to be false.
You'd cheat a man out of the land he was born and raised on with baubles and trinkets, and call it your own after extinguishing his race and placing him on reservations?
This article brings to mind several quotes read in the "Autobiography of Malcolm X," as told to Alex Haley:
1. "Nothing ever happened without cause. Cause the black man's condition the white man won't face."
2. "If Christianity had asserted itself in Germany, six million Jews would have lived."
3. "The black man dealing with the white man who put our eyes out, now he condemns us because we cannot see."
4. "The white man so quick to tell the black man, 'Look what I have done for you!' No! Look what you have done to us!"
Malcolm said it 45 years ago, and it still holds true today.
