AS-SALAAMU ‘ALAIKUM BELOVED BROTHERS AND SISTERS,

YOU MAY OR MAY NOT KNOW THIS ALREADY, BUT I HAVE DONE EXTENSIVE RESEARCH ON SLAVERY AND MANY OF US SAY THAT IF WE WERE BEING HELD IN PHYSICAL BONDAGE WE WOULD HAVE DONE LIKE BROTHER KUNTA AND RAN, RIGHT?

WELL, THAT WAS JUST A T.V. SHOW, AND THE SLAVEMASTER WILL NEVER CONFESS THE TRUTH OF HIS BRUTALITY TOWARD HIS LOYAL SLAVE. BUT I’VE READ SEVERAL STORIES OF ACTUAL FUGITIVE SLAVES WHO SUCCESSFULLY FLED BONDAGE FROM THEIR BRUTAL ENEMIES, THE DEVIL CAUCASIANS.

BELOVED BROTHERS AND SISTERS, OUR POOR FORE-FATHERS LEFT EVERYTHING OF THE ONLY LIFE THEY EVER KNEW (FRIENDS, FAMILY AND WHAT LITTLE POSSESSIONS THEY “OWNED” [I PUT THE “OWNED” IN QUOTATIONS BECAUSE OUR ANCESTORS WERE PROPERTY THEMSELVES, SO ACTUALLY WHATEVER THEY “OWNED” BELONGED TO THEIR MASTERS]) AND SOUGHT THEIR FREEDOM WITH NOTHING BUT THE CLOTHES ON THEIR BACKS AND MAYBE A GUN OR KNIFE, INTO COMPLETELY UNKNOWN TERRITORY, ON FOOT OFTEN TIMES IN FREEZING COLD, NO FOOD, NO MONEY, NO FRIENDS, TRAVELING FOR MILES WITH AN UNCERTAIN AND PERILOUS FUTURE AWAITING THEM.

ALL THEY KNEW FOR CERTAIN, WAS THAT THEY WERE LEAVING BEHIND A LIFE OF TOILING FOR SOMEONE ELSE’S BENEFIT TOWARD A GOAL OF SELF-SUFFICIENCY. THEY DIDN’T KNOW WHAT WAS IN STORE FOR THEM IN A FARAWAY LAND EXCEPT THAT, AT THE MOMENT THEY LEFT, THEY WOULDN’T BE A SLAVE ANYMORE. AND THAT WAS WORTH THE RISK.

THEY TOOK OFF ON FOOT MOST TIMES, WITH THE FEARSOME THOUGHT IN THEIR MINDS THAT THEIR JOURNEY WOULD END IN EITHER FREEDOM OR DEATH.

THEY KNEW THEY COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED IF THEY WERE CAUGHT BUT THEY RISKED EVERYTHING THEY HAD, INCLUDING THEIR LIVES, FOR THEIR FREEDOM.

IMAGINE HOW THEY WOULD FEEL KNOWING THAT 151 YEARS LATER, THEIR PROGENY ARE STILL SLAVING FOR THE SAME PEOPLE FROM WHOM THEY SO COURAGEOUSLY FLED??? AND THEY HAVE NO CHAINS, NO WHIPS, NO GUNS TO MAKE THEM STAY!!!!!!!!!??????????

YOU CAN QUIT YOUR JOB WITH TWO WEEKS NOTICE, BUT YOU ARE AFRAID OF MISSING A MEAL. YOU DON’T WANT TO WALK, SO YOU WOULD RATHER BE A SLAVE TO THE SAME PEOPLE YOUR ANCESTORS RISKED THEIR LIVES TO GET AWAY FROM, SO THAT YOU CAN PUSH A BENZ. THEY HAVEN’T CHANGED. YOU JUST MADE IT EASIER FOR THEM. THEY DON’T EVEN HAVE TO WHIP YOU ANYMORE. YOU WILLINGLY GO WORK FOR THEM.

I’M SORRY IF IT HURTS, BUT THE TRUTH ONLY HURTS THE GUILTY.

BROTHERS AND SISTERS, IT HAS BEEN 151 YEARS AND SIX MONTHS SINCE THE DEVILS FREED US AND WHAT DO WE HAVE TO SHOW FOR IT? NICE HOUSES, EXPENSIVE CARS AND FANCY CLOTHES? MEANINGLESS MATERIAL THINGS?

WE WILL NEVER BE FREE IN DEED UNTIL WE OWN OUR OWN LAND, WHERE WE CAN PRODUCE FOR OURSELVES THE NECESSITIES OF LIFE (FOOD, CLOTHES AND SHELTER) AND STOP DEPENDING ON OUR SLAVEMASTERS TO PROVIDE THESE THINGS FOR US.

WE WOULD RATHER, WILLINGLY, GO TO HIM, WITH OUR RESUME IN HAND, BEGGING HIM FOR A JOB. WHAT DO YOU THINK THEY BROUGHT US HERE FOR???? TO WORK FOR THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IF YOU WILLINGLY GO TO HIM ASKING TO BE HIS SLAVE, HE WILL PUT CHAINS BACK ON YOU! AND YOU ARE AT HIS MERCY UNTIL YOU WAKE UP AND GO FOR SELF.

YOUR FUTURE IS IN HIS HANDS TO DO WITH WHAT HE PLEASES AS LONG AS YOU WORK FOR HIM (HIS SLAVE). YES, YOU ARE PAID NOW, BUT ALL YOU BUY IS FOOD, CLOTHES AND SHELTER AND MAYBE A VACATION. BUT, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE VACATION, THOSE ARE THE EXACT SAME THINGS THEY PROVIDED FOR US AS THEIR SLAVES. NOW YOU JUST BUY THEM YOURSELF.

YOU ARE NOT LEAVING ANYTHING FOR YOUR FUTURE GENERATIONS. YOU DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT TELLING THEM ANYTHING BUT “GO TO SCHOOL SO YOU CAN GET A GOOD JOB AND BE A SLAVE LIKE ME.” I’M SORRY, BUT THE TRUTH IS ALL I’M GOING TO SPEAK.

UP! BLACK PEOPLE! RISE AND GO FOR SELF!
