A Thought-Provoking Article

This is an important article by Heathen Chinese.

“In his conversation with Mead, Baldwin not only identified himself with the slave on the boat, but with the Africans who sold other Africans to Europeans as well:

Baldwin: I’m not guiltless, either. I sold my brothers or my sisters—
Mead: When did you?
Baldwin: Oh, a thousand years ago, it doesn’t make any difference.”

We carry the wounds of our ancestors. We are the inheritors of the damage done to them. Their pain is ours. Their anguish is ours. Their crimes are ours too. Nothing goes away. There has been no ‘progress,’ just generations of surviving monotheistic devastation.
