The Wool is Unthreading America The Lie Will Need Help

60 Second Thought of the Day

While Black Americans stay focused on nonsense the wool continues to be pulled over our collective eyes. Oh, damn Bill Cosby him again? Bill told us to pull our freaking pants up that means he’s condemned to outer sphere of craziness. While our community languishes and focuses on Bill’s sexual plight. Which again I say doesn’t mean anything to the current plight of depressed urban life. Black Americans continue to ignore the reality of what really matters to us; in terms of having real cultural connections to a land that was stolen from us almost 500 years ago. What land you ask, Brother Hall, what land? We Black African Americans came here all bundled up like sardines in the belly of ships from the shores of western Africa, didn’t we? Of course that’s what every historian of any consequence has told us be they black or white, correct? Oh well, what does it matter anyway we are here and we have chosen our course to be what it is we are African Americans, correct? Except it isn’t our chosen course it is a course that was chosen for us and we have immersed ourselves in it for now over 500 years. It is said that history is the key to one’s self-identity. History defines who you are, we are, and why we are the way we are. So if that is indeed the case as I found out again this morning on an another intriguing web-site indeed-edu.org. We had better understand the magnitude of our brothers and sisters continuing to adopt false history rather than claiming our true historical genesis.

You heard before, it’s so damn hard to believe, we were indeed here first. This morning I heard it from the lips of one Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. when he wailed we are refugees in our own land. Yes, you heard it correctly Dr. King indicated that black Americans aren’t African Americans but part of the original peoples who were encountered by those savage europeans who blitzed our people’s land and resources without a neer’bit of sympathy or care. Those people of fair skin took what was rightfully ours and made it their’s and haven’t to date paid one damn penny in penance for the viciousness we as a black people endured. Oh I am not going to deny that most likely a “few” of us traveled the middle passage and I will preface the word “few”. However, I can no longer believe any of the nonsensical lies that are purported by those thieving white europeans related to how we got to America. I can now only believe what is placed in front of me that is different from what those fair skinned historians want me to believe. Rather then Bill Cosby telling our communities to pull up their pants maybe Bill should have added and pull the wool from over your eyes. For if we indeed were here and I now believe. We who have sacrificed so much of what we had stolen and have gotten back so damn little for that sacrifice. While, our red brothers were almost exterminated off the face of the earth. The black Americans and I use that term loosely because what was this nation before it was America? The land was a collective group of tribes and communities definitely not America. Collective group of black brothers and sisters who welcomed these invaders on to their lands thinking the best and getting the worst.

Those same black brothers and sisters were worked into the ground, enslaved, whipped, shipped, and devoured by the hatred extolled by those of the fairer skin. Then as if that wasn’t enough damage. Those of fairer skin created the mythology of everyone of our black ancestors coming across the Atlantic Ocean on slave ships and then being bartered by those of fairer skin. Of course they also added the reprehensible breeding story which made it all the more appalling. Those fair skinned people stole was what great from us that endured us to this savagery. They stole every single solidarity bit our damn history. Yet, what is done in darkness does indeed eventually come to light. The footprints of our ancestors is now being uncovered and questions are now being asked.

So while we as a black community now worry about how big Kim Kardashian’s ass is? Or whether or not Will Smith dropped a mickey into his confused son’s drink for wearing skirts and dresses? Or just how many white women did Bill Cosby molest as a 30 or 40 year old man? The wool of history’s injustice continues to be pulled over our eyes ever more. Some black Americans find decency in the story given to us that our black sisters and brothers came over in the bellies of slave ships covered in feces and piss of themselves and others. I simply do not find that appealing one damn bit. Our peoples were stronger mentally than that folks. They were mentally strong but just too damn trusting of those of the fairer skin. Hell, before they knew it wham, bam, thank you mam. They and their sisters and brothers were shipped to other parts of a nation already there own. They were force fed a religion that endured and taught them that living in hell now would provide them with a life in heaven after death. This all done while little by little building the BIG LIE that we as a majority of black brothers and sisters all believe today. Don’t get mad at this post it was only intended to inform and reflect on truisms. It surely wasn’t met to spread any hatred or continue that lie. Hell, most of White America most likely believe the African story anyway because it is the only story those who know the truth want told. Yet little by little, inch by incredible inch, the real story is unfolding and soon that wool over our eyes will indeed be transparent.

Then everyone of us will have to make a decision.
