Why do you think that that following generation of the Europeans, should not be responsible to make corrections, for what their ancestors have done against African people until this very day. Are you saying that we should forget about what was done, because it was done more than five hundred years ago, and therefore, it should be forgotten and gone?
We cannot dig up the graves of your ancestors, and get them to pay the obligations which is owed to the African race. The wealth which was made from slavery, was handed down to the sons and daughters, of those who make their living by the activities of slave trading activities. Therefore, it is the duties of the following generation, to correct the crimes of slave trading activities, which was implemented and practiced by their fore parents, and which are still being practiced today as we speak, or deny their responsibilities, and continue to support the practice of slave trading activities against African people. What is your choice?
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere
