Hi everyone,

Listen to type of family life my great grandmother Julie learned in slavery.

She did not have any family life training, except she saw illegitimate children and a few loving slave families who were fortunate enough to escape the auction block. Slave masters encouraged illegitimacy by requiring slaves, especially large-sized men, to mate with Negro women, and a few, I am told, required their sons, against their will, to mate with slaves, to limit the number of slaves to be bought on the auction block and white man continues to enjoy sex and babies by and with black women. Again, this is okay with me. However since slave masters and white man, some, still enjoy sex with black woman, I ask them to get off sex welfare. Instead, white man today, needs to pay his way, with or without sex, in our company in these United States by giving black people what they have earned through hard work and romance. Though both are important, it is our hard work that needs to be rewarded with equality. In my opinion, they should want to get out of debt and, until they give us equality, white man, no matter what he owns, will be on economic and sex welfare. I just do not believe white man wants to continue living on welfare because he must have dignity and, therefore, I look forward to them legislating their hearts, laws, and good deed to get out of black folks debt and other minorities’ debt. And this includes helping us without requiring us to sleep with them.

Yes, illegitimacy and black hatred in America are traced from slave masters, until today.

In this regard, white man is still having sex with our people. Listen to this true anecdote. I know a woman, whom people said was not very smart, but she earned her doctorate degree “on her back.” I have my own story. When I was six or seven years old, I was laying on the pallet in the cotton field Mama that Mama had made for me to take rest breaks. I rested from work, while she worked nearby. A white boy stopped by, lay down on the pallet with me, and played with my body. Because we were sharecroppers, Mama was afraid to tell him to stop. I didn’t know what was going on, and my mother was troubled because he was abusing me, the best she had to call her own. That’s what white boy did to Mama and me.

Equally important, the slave masters divided slaves, by mixing tribes who spoke different languages and the citizens of each group did not like each other. White man knew this before he brought our ancestors to America. As a result, that is only one of the masterful ways slave masters set in motion black hatred, family divisiveness, and lack of understanding to create good families.

Whites should help us achieve, but never compromise us by requiring sex for favors. Forced sex makes one feel like a slut. Unless married to us, white man should not take advantage of our life because we want to achieve. Instead, help us with integrity. Here is that kind of good story. I earned a Ph.D. degree at the University of Virginia (UVA), and no professor or administrator, while I was there, even hinted sex relations, though I earned all As and one B and, when I left, I had a great sense of integrity and love for my professors who helped me and were morally upright toward me. Yes, this is what we want all the time, and I hold those UVA professors in high esteem today.

Nevertheless, while knowing who white man is, I ask black man and black woman to develop good drug free families, non-violent husband wife relationships, and grow the best children in the world. Take this stand for yourself and refuse to parent illegitimate children and ditch the jealousy streak that keeps children and adults, including men, miserable because someone else is always ahead of them. Listen to my story. I was with my friends and something was said and, a third time, I mentioned I had a Ph.D. in context, and the man winked at his wife. That was three days ago. Get over jealousy! Get your own stuff! Allow people to talk about their achievements. When you want to, you talk about what is on your mind.

Be fair! Rid yourself of jealousy.

Jealousy is the worst scourge among black people. Forget about where it came from! Dump it today! It is your life you want to enjoy, not make miserable by always talking, thinking, and acting jealousy. Hey! Anybody can do that and you are not just anybody. You are good people who will stamp out jealousy in your life today.
