I thought that I'll share this article for all that don't know. It seems that modern society has forgotten or are not aware of the fact that the Statue Of Liberty was commissioned to celebrate the end of chattel slavery. There is this misconception that it was made to commemorate immigrants coming to Ellis Island. I think that we all need to understand the struggle that Americans labeled as "Black" have contributed to the infrastructure of this land. We are the foundation of this great country. There would have been no President Obama or Kamal Harris if it weren't for our ancestors...
It's time we so called Black Americans hold our heads high, this is our country, this is where we belong. ADOS have contributed a number of great inventions, ideas, won wars etc. We own that!!! Most importantly, our enslaved ancestors were not immigrants but the cooper colored Americans found here by Columbus...Without us, there is no you!! Word To The Wise
Peace Always~ Shakira
