Afro-Americans will Always Be slaves

Updated on March 29, 2016

The mentality of slavery will always be embedded in the minds of some Of the white race because they was taught that by their ancestors. . After the abolishment of slavery; Blacks was still treated badly and given no respect by whites. Black's was uneducated poor and basically depended on the white's for survival .Black's knew they was treated badly but had no choice in the matters, they had to do what they were told.

Black's was uneducated with no work skills, in the eyes of the white man they was abolished slaves, working for basically nothing, They worked in homes and fields from sun up to sun down.

In 1960 Black's face a lot of disadvantages because of racism and discrimination from services that white's control, they was excluded was from public bathrooms, restaurants with signs posted 'WHITE ONLY".

After the War was over Black's in the South was no longer slaves, they was never given the respect they deserved or freedom from whites because of the title given to them, "slaves" generations ago..

In today's society things has gotten a lot better for Afro-Americans and their families but discrimination still linger in the hearts and souls of some. Barack Obama, the world first Black President maybe related to the first document African slave in pre-revolution History. After years of research it has been said that Obama is the 11th great-grandson of John Punch, the first Document Slave in History.

Obama the first Black president has been target because of his heritage. Some whites never wanted to see a Afro-American, in control of running our Country

To some white's Black's will always be known as second class to because of their ancestors, who was capture brought to American and sold for labor. In today's society Afro-Americans will always be victims to racism and discrimination because of small minded people who has nothing better to than hate.

Black's will never be equal to whites, because of the coloring of theirr skin and the history of our Slave ancestors.

      What a horrific situation and very moving to read. But surely it couldn't have been your actually granny - was it your great-great-granny and a story that was passed down? If you have more stories like this, you could put them together in a book. It's something that should never be forgotten.

      Wow... what an awesome article. I would like to encourage you to keep writing about this topic. It is sad to me that we forget, and it is important that those who can... remember.

      There are times when it's hard to believe that these women endured such pain and humiliation, from men especially Black women. All because of the color of ones skin.
