The thing that hate groups such as this don't understand is that there is nothing LEGAL that they can do that is intimidating to American citizens. The emphasis is on LEGAL. Demonstrating isn't intimidating, that right is protected under the constitution. Burning Churches, the destruction of commercial and private property are ILLEGAL, as is the infliction of bodily harm, and the loss of life. The problem has always been that such groups perform ILLEGAL acts and are protected by the very people who are supposed to uphold the law for all citizens. And for MUCH of American history, a Black person's life has not been considered equal in value in the eyes of law enforcement and the justice system. It is the INSTITUTIONALIZATION of intimidation that has sustained and given leverage to the ILLEGAL acts of violence and intimidation by hate groups. less

As it's Black History Month in the States, I thought I would post a link to my recent blog on Healing Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome. If you have been following my blogs for awhile, you know I have blogged on this subject before.

Part of reparations involves repair work. Nobody else can do this for us - we have to do it ourselves. This is an urgent matter. We MUST focus on our healing. Regards, Zhana less
