It is the presence of this UNRESOLVED BONDAGE that makes study of the past so necessary if the present is to be fully comprehended.
In the same way that "all history is current event," the mind of a people, a race, or a nation is the sum total of all the experiences they have lived before.
In the case of African people who today still live in an economic fish bowl that was created by slave dealers, it means that despite efforts to escape the past, Black life is still haunted by unresolved bondage that will not be resolved until we come to terms with that which is ailing us as a people.
This injured legacy that was shaped in the cauldrons of slavery occupies the subconscious realm like a spirit that needs exorcism, because cries and yearnings for justice have never been fulfilled. Instead of being fulfilled they are constantly drowned with buckets of make-believe.
The embarrassment of living with this haunting spirit often forces the victim to adopt a dual personality that wears a mask on the outside while covering up deep psychic responses to oppression and terrorism and enforced inferiority.
The terrorism that was visited on slave populations on a day to day basis and especially after rebellions and attempts at escape, was such that subsequently the mere thought of rebelling could paralyze the slave's mind with fear.
As a result of this fear of rebellion, the slave of today is apt to avoid the bitter truth that a truce has been made with the slave-master to settle for bondage as long as it is not called slavery any more..
This truth will not allow the slave the false comfort of feeling that Dr King or someone else in the past has already fought and completed the bitter struggle for freedom.
No, this truth places the responsibility squarely on the slave's shoulders, and he has a choice of CONTINUING TO LIVE THE LIE and hand down false-freedom from generation to generation, or engage in the much-feared path of rebellion.
Surviving with this contradiction therefore forces many to desensitize their moral compass and consequently spit on the grave of their own integrity.
Against this background it is easy to see why many confine their studies to the days "when we were kings and Queens" and avoid the study of slavery like the plague itself.
It is easy to see why in addressing the crisis that is being handed down and accentuated from generation to generation many choose to use short-term spectacles that see only a year or two.
But while such studies of the royal years are also necessary, there is no time in history that has shaped the present Black personality more than the traumatic years that have been spent IN THE LIMITING CONFINES OF THE WHITE TRAP.
It is understandable that some would prefer the study of ancient Black civilizations like Abyssinia and Kemet and that they would take refuge in the comfort of holy books.
But when JUSTICE is a serious concern, as it ought to be if we are not asleep, it is foolhardy to evade study of the INJUSTICE that has been done and continues to be done, for you will never have the courage to change your condition until you have the courage to study your condition.
And this process of reversing injustice and establishing justice requires rigorous study of The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and Chattel slavery, and all of the years since the time when The Aliens locked us down in a white cage and placed a vampire on our backs.
If we are to change the destiny that has been set for us by The Alien Invaders this is the kind of study that we must embark on, for our present predicament as Africans is like a lock that we are challenged to pick. And the only way to pick the lock is to first STUDY THE LOCK.
If we want to find our way out of this present situation we must get thoroughly acquainted with what was done, how it was done, and HOW IT HAS MANAGED TO MIGRATE TO THE PRESENT WHILE PRETENDING TO BE A THING OF THE PAST.
The truth will be discovered that there are some people today that are PRETENDING TO BE CIVILIZED AND FAKING HUMANITY.
But when you study the cold sadism that they displayed yesterday, and the present cold indifference that they display towards the mass incarceration of Blacks today, you will definitely find out that THEY ARE NOW WEARING LEGAL MASKS to perform the same lynchings.
But your mind has to be strong to shake off the feel-good illusions, and face up to the fact that the main struggle for Black freedom is not something in the past that was achieved by others so that you can now celebrate during Black history month.
No, it is still ahead, and if you are not prepared to vigorously challenge and militate and agitate against the world's longest lasting crime, then it will be left to your children to do so.
But each time it gets left to the children of the next generation IT GETS HARDER TO CORRECT and the journey to eventual extinction as a race becomes even more irreversible.
The following images will prove without a doubt that just like yesterday, the people who make a constant show of saying "In God we trust" do not have the slightest understanding that their institutionalized sadistic brutality towards Africans shows clearly that they are Satan in disguise.
It should also be remembered that the sadism that is described in the images below happened in a society where the people were regular Sunday-morning church-goers, so it would appear that wherever they have exhibited the worse evil they have also exhibited the greatest show of religion.
From generation to generation evil is being condoned while going to Church and sipping communion.
The fact that they consciously participate in hushing the wrongs of the past, and silently condone the present criminalization and victimization of Blacks is ample evidence that in the name of Jeezus they are practicing Satan.
So what follows are the sobering truths, starting with the fact that any study of The African Slave Trade and the empire-building years that followed is sure to open up to the inquiring view:
A ROAD-MAP REVEALING THE MIND OF SATAN.
In the process of developing the modern world, every possible device that the evil mind could imagine was invented for the specific purpose of DEVALUING THE AFRICAN PERSON-HOOD and making African inferiority a global reality.
It can be said that the African has been living through a horror movie in which THE EVIL IMAGINATION was stretched beyond comprehension to devise ways and means of disfiguring God's creation and creating A PSYCHOLOGICALLY DEFORMED SUBHUMAN SPECIES. That was the intent from its very beginnings, and unless there is some miraculous change we are in danger of seeing it become a reality.
