2014 … No Apologies

by DEE

The Depth of Your Existence

It‘s a new year, 2014, and I want to challenge you to ask yourself if you understand the depths of your existence.

Think about this, if we all (black folks) originally came to this country by way of the Transatlantic Slave Trade and were considered a commodity to be sold, then our ancestors represented the best that mother Africa produced. The slave traders only wanted the best in order to get top dollar. Those who were resilient enough to survive the journey demonstrate the strength and fortitude of our ancestors. Knowing and embracing this thought, brings about a realization of who we really are.

The proof of this theory is based on two processes:
Selection: identifying people strong enough to meet the demands of the buyers;

Brutal Journey: the ability of those selected to survive the brutal journey to an unknown land.

The bottom line: Survival of the fittest based on years of cruel slavery, but still able to survive.

Today, we must embrace our lineage and continue to move forward toward real freedom, making no apologies for our existence.

We are and will always be a strong and powerful people as long as we love, help and respect each other. Keeping in mind there are no big I’s and little you’s, we are all on this journey together.

We all will make mistakes along the way, but don’t stop, pick yourself up and keep moving! We no longer have to apologize for the color of our skin!

Your "blackness" is your calling card to the world saying you are a descendant of the "BEST"!

Happy New Year

Love and Peace
