Historical Lessons Not Learned

By: Howard Williams

After watching the PBS series  Africa’s Great Civilizations by Henry Louis Gates, Jr. I had mixed feelings, as I am quite sure most of you who had watched it.

Sometimes enlightenment brings more questions. However the knowledge gained from the series was outstanding.

So here is my take. Regardless of the great knowledge, art and all the resources that came out of Africa. Greed has been prevalent throughout mans history and greed is still prevalent as part of mans history today.

When a human being will sell another human being for money and power all morality is gone. So the question for me is what role did religion play then and what role does religion play today in society?

African Americans will still sell there brothers, sisters and children down the river for power and money. 

The players have changed but the game remains the same.
