      It’s a part of our history, ya big dummy. Slavery will always be a topic of discussion

        But if you were so aware about your own “black” culture you would know that, that is not all we’re known for. We were once Kings and Queens.

        I never said it was “who we are.” However, it has helped mold us into the strong people that we are today. This is something that we went through for over 300 years. The Black Codes, Jim crow, police brutality, and etc all stem form slavery. This all recent history. Black people werer placed in a hole that we’ve managed to crawl out of with help from noone. That’s something to be proud of. I never want our generation to forget it.

    Dope for them! It’s a great show.

    Well I love it especially that they are daring, witty, and taking their own freedom. Something has to be said of people who go to the depths to obtain freedom in a world like that. I could not live then.
