*******Both sides of my family have taught me to never trust the white man, simply because he tells lies. If a man won't treat you right, then he won't teach you right. *******
Yes, but why do you hold Google to such a pure standard? Isn't Google but one of their manifestations?
We can't affirm or condemn a vessel of the european with another one of his vessels.
Are there also Native Americans who say that genocide, as told by the europeans, did not happen as well?
What might you feel does the white man have to gain by painting such an atrocious and impactful portrait of chattel slavery?
There have been many validated accounts of black people themselves who remembered slavery or passed down stories told to them by their ancestors. Surely you do overstand the power of verbal tradition? Are you also questioning the validity of those accounts?
And are we to dismiss EVERYTHING from the mouth of the european? John Wayne movies and Kevin Costner's movie differed greatly in their depictions of Amerindians. Should I dismiss both as inaccurate?
What precisely about slavery are europeans lying about?
