THEIR LINEAGE & LEGACY MATTERS
It matters who
speaks for you * who represents your interests * who sits at tables to negotiate for your interest * who you think you are * what you think is your worth * how you deal and heal according to your needs
It matters who represents your ancestors and you * who holds your history of the enduring harmful legacies of your family lineage legacies
Oppression has been an acceptable way of living for ADOS -African Descendants of Slavery.
The skin this baby is in right now determines this child's future without his family legacy.
He comes into the world oppressed
WHY? Because many white Americans do not feel they are accountable for ensuring that he has a life without oppression .
This baby will live at the mercy of white
descendants of the thieves who stole his ancestors labor
making it harder for him to live with a legacy that supports his or her start for life.
I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free
human being with an independent will.
Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre
