Our most recent H30 Art of Life Blog, "Racism: Uprooting the Evil Within and Among Us", addressed a subject about which much is thought and said but,unfortunately, not enough is known. First and foremost, there must be an immediate,intentional, and genuine effort to right the wrongs that have been, and continue to be, visited upon the descendants of the African CAPTIVES. who were stolen from their homeland and transformed into "slaves"by the descendants of European-American settlers.
N'COBRA, The National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America, is an organization which, since 1987, has been seeking to hold accountable those who contributed to and/or benefit(ed) from the "slave trade" and its ancillaries. "The "Insufficient Redress"graphic (shown above), illustrates the disingenuous nature of the 2009 US Senate apology for America's Crimes against African Humanity, crimes which Frederick Douglass proclaimed,"would disgrace a nation of savages".*
On the left of the scale of justice, is a partial list of the crimes committed via "the TransAtlantic Chattelization Wars on Africa" (Chinweizu). Listed on the right of the scale are the 3 points of "redress" for these atrocities. There is a structure underneath the scale that impedes any balancing of the scale . It is the Disclaimer that is aimed at providing a "hold harmless" clause for America by declaring that the "Apology" could not be used as a grounds for seeking Reparations.
