    Question BLACK PPL> Is our history our enemy or our friend?

    Does the knowledge of our history empower us or hurt us? or both?

    I agree sometimes it gets me so angry and upset thinking about all the cruelty that happened during slavery and how some people have just swept it under the carpet. But then the achievements of Black people has also been something to rejoice about.

    History on a whole for black ppl...not culturally but as a race...our struggle for acceptance,...the history of our ancestors...our history of being profiled/classified, teenage pregnacny, literacy,jailed men etc

    and i doh wah hear bout this race too and that race too...black ppl is the focus.

    IMO, neither.Traditions are what bind a people. You cant learn your culture from a book.

    Not really

    1. the branch of knowledge dealing with past events.
    2. a continuous, systematic narrative of past events as relating to a particular people, country, period, person, etc., usually written as a chronological account; chronicle: a history of France; a medical history of the patient.

    It saddens me a little when I see what some Black people get up to now like their grand-parents didn't go through all this hardship just for them to mess it up and become complacent

    But profiling by the police is an issue people are not addressing properly I understand why there is a difficult relationship between black men and the law because seeing the way they are treated by the police I don't think I would respect police officers either
