The thing is, you do. You just dont share the same experiences.

Not really. . Until I went to college, I never ate with them, talked to them, lived in the same community as them. It has been that way for generations. We were not walking the same walk with a different perspective. They made our lives a living hell, but they do the same all over the world to this day.

interesting


Samone, when I lived in another country they spoke nothing of it. I finished off elementary school there and there was more than enough time to mention Harriet Tubman. Maybe it was my school/ neighborhood but they didn't even mention history. By 4th grade here, my teacher made sure we knew our history/world history. *MY experience*

I posted this response at least 30 mins ago smh

I guess she never heard of De Sugar Cane plantations throughout the Carib.


Honestly, her even commenting such ridiculous and historically inaccurate dribble smacks of a PR stunt to drum up book sales and such.

I think people have a hard time conceptualizing how aa's were so isolated that we don't eat the same food, don't listen to the same music, don't speak the same, don't share the same physical ideals. It's not about color. It's much deeper than that.

...here, you're taught everything i can think of....
...how blacks were brought here; when the whites came, what they did, life on the plantations; the rebellions and freedom fighters; Britain's role, how slavery was abolished, etc...

youre taught the history of slavery in the country as well as in the region

...if thats what you meant?
