Black people are very unique in their own way and there is no doubt about that.
But its more or less a taboo or a curse being born black, because you are been deprived from so many good things in life all because your skin is black.
White people most of the time see themselves superior to blacks so for more than four hundred(400) years, many black people were captured and used as slaves.
Black women were raped, the men were molested and some lost their lives along the line. It is very sad for it has gone on for so long which needs to be eradicated, but that is something which is yet to be taken into consideration.
The racial misconduct black people living in the white man's land go through are so abhorring.
Nevertheless, if you make an attempt to stand for your right even in your own land, white people can descend on you as if you have committed a very big crime.
Some great men decided to put a stop to black people being used as slaves, properties looted by the whites and they were apprehended and brought down by the whites which most of the time were made possible with the help of their own black brothers.
Dr Kwame Nkrumah was one of the great men who hailed from Ghana in the Western part of Africa wanted to unite all African countries so the can manage their own affairs but some of his black brothers took side with the whites which led to his death.
Patrice Lumumba, a Congolese leader was also assassinated and later murdered because he resisted Belgians colonialism.
Muammar Gaddafi cannot be left out, he only wanted his people to get better side of life and, a whole lot of charges were pressed against him and later lost his life also. Libya has never been the same after the painful demise of Gaddafi.
All these great leaders did not do anything bad in particular. They only to lead their own people the way it should.
Together we shall overcome!
