(His Story) is a powerful tool that has been used and abused in ways that affects all human beings today. No one can argue the simple fact that history, as we know today, was written by the victors who back then were also the oppressors. The questions that most of us should be able to ask and request answers for are: What is the truth? What really happen? Has anything really changed? What can we learn from our past? What future do we envision? What foundations are we setting for that future? Who is the modern oppressor? Who are the modern oppressed? Why only few are well off while many are still struggling? Are human simply stupid creature? etc...
Uncle Tom's Cabin
I am in the middle of reading a great classic "Uncle Tom's Cabin". I am not even done with it but I could not resist the desire to express my pride as a black person. It is hard for me to think of a class of individuals that have been used and abused as much as that of the people who look like me.

Everyone can peacefully stay in their house and simply say that they were not present back then during slavery. To you I strongly encourage learning about reincarnation. You could have well been yesterday's oppressor.
Others will will say, "well I am not oppressing anyone". To you I ask what are you doing to end injustice in your own society? In addition, I want you to remember this quote by Albert Einstein: "The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything."
Regardless of how one sees it, we are all guilty by association.
Where are the Black Heroes?
Have black people ever done anything that is worth celebrating? Aren't there many great inventions by black people? The w
