Im pretty sure the multitude of African tribes who sold other Africans into slavery havent apologized, either. Theyre still doing it, actually, but you never hear about that. All guys like Wright care about is what didnt happen to them at the hands of people who are no longer alive. You know, sometimes I wonder what hut-dwelling, persecuted, starving, or enslaved Africans - who are alive and dying right this second - would think about American blacks like Wright and Cone, if they could know about them. Which they cant because they live in abject poverty and terror and dont have a lot of spare time to surf the internet, seeing as how theyre so busy running from machete slaughters and waiting for their cup of rice each day, that is if it isnt hijacked by other Africans with guns.
I wonder how supported they would feel in their blackness to know that wealthy, intelligent, resourceful black Americans spend so much time and effort pounding away on shit that happened here hundreds of years ago instead of directing all that rage at injustice towards Africa itself. You know, maybe actually helping black people who need it about a million times more than your average Detroit gangbanger. Just a thought I have sometimes.
