In Response To: Seshatasefekht (Ras C. Liontree)
peace and hotep,
ras c. liontree, my apologies for such a slow response to your question. it was unavoidable.
when i asked:
" when you do slide shows on slave castles is it necessary to differentiate between captives and slaves?",
just like 'white' is an improper description of ones dedicated to the eradication of racism or white supremacy, the idea of generational slavery eludes logic to me. although african people whom were taken through war or deception became known through western propaganda as "slaves", the term captive not only is more politically correct but it does not lend any biblical credibility of to slavery being as normal and justifiable behavior for judeo-islamichristinsanist.
ras c. liontree, i followed up that question withe:
" because the peculiar institution took the children of enslaved africans and held the children captives for crimes we did not commit. most white supremacist refer to the descendants of african slaves as 'amorican slaves' when they were obviously not a war or indentured.",
to note the difference between captive and slave terminology. african do themselves a disservice by continuously accepting willie lynch's "making of a slave rhetoric". our oppressors consider us to be descendents of slaves or continental africans who made this 'peculiar institution' of slavery which is of european descent. their line of reasoning leaves victims continuously blaming each other instead of the true benefactor of the 'institution'.
ras c. liontree, any african term for 'slave' does not agree withe the western conception of 'slavery'. africa is not the home of slaves. africa is the home of huemankinds.
