Written by Keidi Obi Awadu
The goal of assimilation is to remove all traces of the old culture, and replace it with the new. Except with Africans during slavery, the replacement was an image of a shiftless, lazy, unintelligent, cowardly, over-sexed brute that could not be trustd with important matters. Then the image of “White is better” was paraded before us to prove we were inferior. The result was so effective, that when young Blacks strive for excellence they sometimes are accused of “trying to be White.”
