Please let’s not get it twisted the holocaust from everything we seen was catastrophic and devastating... that is apart of history and we will never forget. But those hundreds of years slavery ... there is nothing to show for it? 🤔
I’ll tell you what shows... the way we think. Everybody in Africa wants to buy foreign Items outside of their continent, they want to send there kids aboard to study, they want to make it to outside of there country and live else where. These ideas have been instilled in us and passed down generations... and we still do not notice it!
People of this generation are still scared to go to Africa because they believe they will be chased by a lion or a spell of black magic will be cast upon them!
Without Africa you wouldn’t have your iPhone because they would be no metal to make it. You couldn’t move your foreign car because you have no gas to move it. You couldn’t buy nice jewelry because you wouldn’t have gold or diamonds to make it.
They don’t call us the motherland for a reason. We produce everything. We are rich... but we think poor. That’s how they win. They don’t mention us. They don’t thank us. They don’t respect us. They use us. Until we all take control and build our own. History will only repeat itself.
Cleopatra: The Queen of Beauty
Cleopatra VII ruled ancient Egypt as co-regent (first with her two younger brothers and then with her son) for almost three decades. She became the last in a dynasty of Macedonian rulers founded by Ptolemy, who served as general under Alexander the Great during his conquest of Egypt in 332 B.C. Well-educated and clever, Cleopatra could speak various languages and served as the dominant ruler in all three of her co-regencies. Her romantic liaisons and military alliances with the Roman leaders Julius Caesar and Mark Antony, as well as her supposed exotic beauty and powers of seduction, earned her an enduring place in history and popular myth. ~history.com
