Submitted by Sheila Seabreeze-Bey (United States), Feb 8, 2014 at 20:30

First and foremost our probems began with you determining what was best for (slavery) serve you. Then you define yourself as our god (whiteJesus) The highest insult you can give to any conscious people. Now you tell us we are free without an emancipation process. This is not the melting pot, this is a vegetable soup each vegetable has it distinct character. We were rob of our character. Our forefathers and yours fought for an emanciaption to restore the constituional foundation of this great country. But we are lost in a abyss of civil rights and social issues. Until we restore the constution with its true Thirteenth Amendment with 20 sections we are doom in this nonsense of assimilation. The truth is my historical character is longer and greater than yours don't let media delude you into believing that being like you would make a better me. My nationality is Moorish American, my race asiatic and the shade of my skin is olive. You need to wake up in my reality sir we are under educated, underemployed and over it. We want to be part improving the economic character of this country, but starting with nothing makes that impossible don't measure the many by the few.
