IGNORance is NOT Bliss!

Ignorance simply means to ignore the truth.  The common quote, “Ignorance is Bliss,” implies that what you don’t know can’t hurt you.  I’m here to tell you that what you don’t know can hurt you and has hurt copper-colored people of America ever since being found here by the Europeans.  Ignoring the truth is what caused our people to forget who we are in the first place.

For example, in order to survive the atrocities facing them, many of our ancestors lost their identities while allowing the Europeans to civilize them – see my previous post titled, “Give Them an Inch and They’ll Take a Mile.”  Another example is when some accepted the race classification of Black – see my previous post titled, “Identity Crisis and the Name Game.”  Our ancestors weren’t given much of a choice, so they did what they had to do.  We don’t live in the same hostile environment as they did, so what’s our excuse?

Do Better:
WAKE UP!!!  We’ve been in a deep sleep for far too long.  If you’re reading the posts in this blog, then you can’t say you didn’t know; and now that you do know, you have to either embrace the truth or choose to ignore it (and remain ignorant).
