“What became of the Black people of Sumer?’ the traveler asked the old man, for ancient records show that the people of Sumer were Black. `What happened to them?’ `Ah,’ the old man sighed. `They lost their history, so they died.”
–A Sumer Legend
I was putting together a follow up post on the Black women aint shit post, but I will interrupt that one to do this. Now we always talk about the violence in our community as being the shit that has broken us down. However, we forget that looooong before the internecine violence there was the step n fetch-it imagery that endured for a long time. Apparently the Afrocentric community is not the only one that is practicing Sankofa. Apparently the children of Lincoln Theodore Monroe Andrew Perry, is also practicing their version of Sankofa. We see it on the Flavor of Love, Basket ball ho’s…er wives and shit on BET, at the source awards,Essence awards or freaknik ..if they still have that shit around. ut I will let my man Tariq Nasheed introduce you to the behaviour that is fucking us up faster than our fratricide. In fact there is a direct correlation.
