******The first step to breaking a yoke entails defining what the yoke is - I am not in agreement that a system of faith ie Christianity is a yoke.******
No mystery. Christianity is firmly embedded and thought of as a non-yoke and oppression/colonialism and stagnation of a people still exists.
The basis of our continuous oppression rests upon the dictated notion that problem-relief (salvation/happy/absolution) comes via another person, a physically non-existent person at that. As long as you place your spirituality on dead and past things, you will NEVER move forward to live and future progress.
2,000+ of said "system of faith"...
500+ years in this hemisphere...
SAME OLD CRAP.
hierarchal notions...no problem
business as usual, being done by the same folk to the same folk...no problem
Just keep on doing what they got you doing as usual, negros.
And the thing is, they know that folks will kick into a protectionist "well my kids do it" card or the "my grandmother did it" card. They got us coming and going.
