|Frantz Fanon - Black Skin.White Masks|
The one thing I hate about the celebration of Black History Month are the naysayers, the ones who say, "get over it" and the BLACK Americans who believe we should negate OUR- America's history as if it doesn't matter. As if it is a shameful secret which has to be hidden. Hidden from whom? We did nothing wrong. We didn't keep ourselves in bondage for years, up until this day. And to those who throw in the NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN betrayal of our kindred by our kindred -, especially the people of noncolor- how dare you try to excuse your ancestors and make their HUMONGOUS role a case of "if not this/that." THEY BOUGHT PEOPLE. People they could have released at anytime, but they chose to mutilate, rape and kill them for generations. No one held a gun to their heads and said buy and hand down this dark skinned people to your legacy. You just have to accept your part in the atrocities in America and live with it. You can't deny history.
"Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn't fit in with the core belief.”
