WHITES IN AMERICA (AS A WHOLE PEOPLE) HAVE NEVER MOVED ON FROM SLAVERY! EUROPEAN WHITES AND AMERICAN WHITES WERE ENSLAVED BY NORTH AFRICA KINGS (AS WE KNOW IT TO BE -MOROCCO): THE NEXT TIME A RACIST SAYS TO BLACK PEOPLES, "GO BACK TO AFRICA," ANY BLACK PERSON MAY SAY IN RESPONSE...
NO, YOU GO FIRST!
North Africa Kings were world governmental powers even before, after and during the dominance of European countries' monarchy as well as the dominance of Americas' early US Government presidents including during the time of President Lincoln and beyond. And during these very long time periods... White peoples from Ireland, Britain, France, Italy, and many other so-called European countries where captured from those lands and taken as slaves for the slave Barbary Slave Trade of North Africa. Today, Black Americans are able to discuss their own descent to all parts of Africa including the might North Africa. It is up to Black Americans to know thyself and continue to talk about Black History.
Between 1882 and 1968… Robbed of the vote—a hijacking engineered through the trickery of the poll tax and the muscle of the lynch mob, one hundred years of Emancipated Slavery, ninety years of Jim Crow, sixty years of separate but equal, thirty-five years of racist housing policy, Between 1965 and 2019… 54 years of Emancipated Slavery, debt peonage, under the sway of business kings who were at once their landlords, their employers, and their primary merchants, The authorities seized the land, a predatory agreement that combined all the responsibilities of home ownership with all the disadvantages of renting—while offering the benefits of neither, a racial policy of redlining and also bombings, to keep their neighborhoods segregated, Black people were viewed as a contagion, locked out of the greatest mass-based opportunity for wealth accumulation, the income gap between black and white households is roughly the same today as it was in 1970, children born from 1955 through 1970 found that 4 percent of whites and 62 percent of blacks across America had been raised in poor neighborhoods, that whereas only 15 percent of whites have zero or negative wealth, more than a third of blacks do, two housing markets—one legitimate and backed by the government, the other lawless and patrolled by predators, forced to listen to the lies that Blacks have been taught to labor, taught Christian civilization and to speak noble English language, AND MOST BARELY EMANCIPATED SLAVES WITH NO REGRETS- NO REGRETS HAVING BEEN AN OWNER OF A SLAVE.
Black History Month was first proposed by black educators and the Black United Students at Kent State University in February 1969- (I, Van Stone, was in the 2nd grade). The first celebration of Black History Month took place at Kent State one year later, from January 2, 1970 – February 28, 1970. (Therefore, Black History Months was actually a phrase for the celebration being not one month but two months).
Six years later, Black History Month was being celebrated all across the country in educational institutions, centers of Black culture and community centers, both great and small, when President Gerald Ford recognized Black History Month, during the celebration of the United States Bicentennial. He urged Americans to "seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history".
In the year 2019, we as Black Americans, be we Native Americans, (The American Indian, Black peoples originated also from Africa then migrating and reaching to be peoples of the Americas, being in the Americas, long before European sailors had ever reached the Americas), be we African Americans, (The Black Americans, Black peoples who are able to discuss their short descent of the Africans captured by both White governments and African governments during the Atlantic Slave Trade and then made slaves here in Americas), be we Jamaican Americans (The Black Americans who are able to discuss their short descent of African slaves to Jamaica and then under British colonial rule and, then became fully emancipated by Britain of all slavery in 1838,- Jamaican Blacks were freemen - as much as 27 years - long before Blacks living in the Americas were emancipated from slavery), Be we Black Americas, (The Black Americans who are able to discuss their short descent of African slaves to all of North America and South America including but not limited to Latinos/Hispanics and then under British colonial rule or Spanish colonial rule or Portuguese colonial rule or French colonial rule and, then became fully free by means of revolution to liberation of all slavery are still competing with one another about the Blackness. Meanwhile, Black History Month will forever be of great importance to all Black peoples and non-Black people alike.
We stand all together and celebrate our talented Black people like Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali during Black History Month. Because Know Your Black History Is Vital -Know Who You Identify As Black Is Vital. Be courageous! And also know something else… Black People are the only people, -self-identify our Blackness.
