I owe you no explanation other than to say: it is the unwillingness of the descendants of those who profited from slavery and were raised with the mentality that slavery was ok, that divides, destroys, and stifles our country.

If we leave slavery that was unreconciled and uncompensated in history where it belongs, we cannot receive justice for what happened then, nor what is happening now.

All of it is a direct result of slavery, reforme slavery (Jim Crow), and modern slavery (Prison). why because of your audacity to say all men were created equal but want to disparage a man because the color of his skin .,,but still we don’t all see the same way.

Nice to finally know the history behind the song. MLK also said he felt his efforts were leading his ppl into a burning building. Funny how you all leave that out of his MANY speeches. Yep & MLK was growing tired. Tired of Americans treating human rights as negotiable. He was getting more close to Malcolm X, and Malcolm X was getting closer to him. Well when this song was written Black people were barely out of slavery and they couldn’t vote or do much of anything else. They were being lynched at lynching parties no one was ever prosecuted. Why would that feel like they were part of America? Aren’t we all about keeping our “heritage” these days? Well, this is part of Black Americans’ heritage.
