Here are some things for you to Think About . . . IF you REALLY care

The black man was only a breeder. Parental authority was in the hands of
the slave master. As a father, the black man was so humiliated that he was not looked upon
as a father or a man. Slavery for the black males "prevented their coming to emotional
maturity by inflicting on them a perpetual childhood, and imposing their master's ideology
on them, resulting in their identifying themselves with their masters." The slave was the
child and the slave master was the father. In this boy role, the black male had to approach
White America with bowed head. The black male had to answer with a "yes suh, no suh".
And the slave master and White America called the black man, 'boy'. The slavery
experience for the black man was perpetual childhood.
