Slave vs. enslaved

The notion that free Africans were slaves degrades the reality on the ground in Africa and makes the assumption that our ancestors were born into that condition; that their reality was always slavery. However, the term enslaved offers a radical and more accurate reality for it describes a condition placed upon our ancestors. Hence, captive Africans came across the Atlantic and were subsequently enslaved. Never were they slaves because this is not the natural condition of African people. Writers of history who are ignorant of this reality set-up a relationship between black and African, African and Slave and in this cocktail, Africa and all its contents becomes a completely negative entity which offers our imagination nothing more than images of Slaves, poverty and backwardness.

I must say Mr. Williams, I am learning so much from the site. Thank you its wonderful.

Pebbles you need medication or a good man/woman or something because you certainly have some deep dark issues involving race; perhaps your energy will be better serve in other areas like working in the media as a deceptor or at the White Redneck House or the British Bad Teeth Parliment, anyway I better stop feeding the troll by entertaining you.
Good luck with your agenda!

ladyz,

You are more than welcome to suggest counter-racist strategies and techniques that will help to produce a SYSTEM of justice. You can do this most expeditiously by focusing on the white people who practice racism (white supremacy) and not focusing on other non-white people.

Just a suggestion.

Oh, and have you entered the 3rd Annual Counter-Racism Science Project Competition?
