Lately I have been finding myself thinking about how my ancestors would have felt about the state of the African American community today. Do you think they would be disappointed? I feel like our ancestors wanted much better for us and it has been on my mind so much lately. What are your thoughts?

They gave our lives so we could act like fools on reality TV and WSHH. 
 
They are turning over in their graves.  I feel as a community we have let them down.

Good topic Babyk.

My grandma actually popped my mouth this Sunday,
She said something in Gullah and I asked her to repeat it bc I forgot the word.
She asked me why I don't remember our word, I told her not many ppl away from that side of the state know it so I don't say it much until I come home .

I couldn't imagine what our slave ancestors would say.
Probably a mix of disappointment for what we need to improve on and joy for what we've done so far.

They would be so glad that we didn't have whip marks on our backs though and we have it easier than they did.
But they wouldn't be happy at the state of the black family and our financial shambles.

Old black people did not like debt.
It was a tool by white ppl to keep them down

They would be disappointed but there HAS been some improvement and not all is lost

I'm happy someone feels the same way as I do, it's getting to the point where I can't stop thinking about it. I really wanna do something but, I don't know where to start.

I don't know how they would feel and honestly I'm not sure I care. I'm just trying to be the best I can be.
