We're continuing the discussion on the 12 steps taken to divide, destroy, and control our African people here in America, which feed our Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome. ✊✊✊
LET US DISCUSS STEP 8: ENLISTING BLACK MEN & WOMEN TO FIGHT AND DIE IN THEIR WARS IN VAIN
Going back to revolutionary and civil wars, slaves were signed up to boost military power, and told they were comrades in arms against the enemy. However, they were legally slaves, and they were sent to the front line as shields to die first. July 4, 1776 was "their" independence day, while Africans were still slaves. We've fought in world wars, #Vietnam, gulf wars including #Iraq, etc. Not once has these wars helped our people. #muhammadaliknew better, which is why he refused to serve ( https://www.youtube.com/shared?ci=mEVpUMLKkeE). We're still "randomly" checked in airports while in uniform with proper ID and all. Then the gov and VA ( #VeteransAffairs) treats discharged #veteransof all colors like crap most of the time. Even some civilians have verbally and physically attacked us since Vietnam, not giving us the benefit of feeling at home.
The U.S. Gov used the #tuskegeeexperimentto infect black men with syphilis, just to see how it would affect their bodies (https://www.cdc.gov/tuskegee/timeline.htm). LaVena Johnson was raped in Iraq, beaten to death, and shot, yet the army covered it up as suicide ( http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/3351968). Just one example of many. The national guard bombed the town of Greenwood a.k.a. #blackwallstin Tulsa, OK, killing black veterans in 1921 ( https://www.youtube.com/shared?ci=916fQn0BKTU). ✊✊✊
#Soldiers, especially us, are nothing but bodies in uniform to the #governmentand the elites above them. I don't regret being in the #armyand at #war, even though I was naive. I met some great people, regardless of the bs. ✊✊✊
Consider these topics and discuss them in an intelligent and mature manner. RESEARCH these facts. It's not easy to accept, but the #truthnever is. To be #enlightened, YOU must act.
