It is my dream to one day have a serious conversation about black motherhood free of men and white people. So half of the discussion doesn’t have to be the defense of the validity of black mothers. But at the same time I want to seriously talk about the very real emotional distance a lot of mothers create with their daughters and how that is carried on through generations.
Do you think its time for blacks to cut their ties from Africa?
My sister says yes and well maybe she’s right I mean Africa doesn’t tie itself to blacks in America most Africans don’t see us as Africans-american but just Americans .
But would blacks really be cutting themselves from ?
Our african heritage has all but been wiped out I don’t know any blacks that have any connection to African besides the title of being African American.
-Black people are the descendents of enslaved Africans
-Our ancestors are not slaves, slave is not a type of person, it’s a forced occupation
-We don’t come from slaves we come from stolen Africans
-Slavery does not define us, it is a part of our history and should be well known. But my great gramma told us her mother was a herbalist, midwife, and woman dedicated to God. She was enslaved but she was not only a slave.
Bless this post.
Black privilege is being able to say a ton of racist things to a white person and but not be racist
