A new study published by the American Psychological Association (APA) confirmed what we all have suspected for years when it comes to Black boys—that they are viewed as older and less innocent than their white counterparts. The research also points out they are more likely “perceived” to be guilty and face a far greater amount of police violence when accused of a crime.
Thsi gentleman was wondering why i use the ankh in my work all the time. I get this often and finally replied.
its long tho…
markuspr1m3_: @blckxcellence that is true. The majority of our ancestry came from west africa but was not limited to that. Slaves derived from other regions of africa as well. On top of that much of egyptian culture have influence by west africa as well there is even historical documentation of them having the same blood types, similar dialects, and cultural practices suggesting a large mix of people. Think about this. Since you seem to have a good understanding of our history than think about this. Number one the Egyptians were Black. That alone is a good reason to use an ankh instead of a European influenced Christian cross which many blacks and probably some of your family members and mine have hung in their homes and glorify at church. Dont you see? We are still being divided with this subject. In my rediscovery of egypt, that is turn led me to research the REST of Africa. Still black. So we come from West Africa..you dont think BEFORE slavery there wasn’t any miss going on? You know how well traveled Africans were? There is proof of that African exploration went as far as Asia and even American long before Europeans. Look at all the nationalities with the african touch. Its more frustrating when people are upset that we are using egypt. They are brown skinned kings and queens someone I can identify with. Not King Arthur or Julius Ceasar. As a kid thats what a king was. These knights running arounf with european accent having kings and queens thay looked nothing like me.The reason we use it is because it is the MOST prominent and blatant symbolism of black royalty we can use to shove down Americas throats the same way they have pushed their culture AND crosses on us. We are all BLACK/BROWN.. the cops wont ask if we came from west Africa.lol but if we are ALL aware that we are modern kings and queens we will be much stronger no matter what my friend.
