Slavery and property..

The black inheritance cannot compete with the inheritance of slavers , plantation owners, and colonisers.
‘What inheritance?’... one could say.
On the backs of slaves and slavery... is the inheritance of many... and not just a few...
Watered down now... so one may not think of the legacy of slavery that made it all possible
Black African Caribbean slaves..

Subjugated by every other nation with a desire or lust for cruelty, oppression , power and control. In the Caribbean where apartheid still exists is the sense that some people still believe that black inhabitants should, or deserve to be treated less fair than the Chinese Indian, or white populations, and the idea of a meritocracy can be laughed out of town...
So what did slaves pass down to their children?
Well I guess it would be anything the slave owner may have passed to them...
Most significant of which would be a very warped sense of self
Old colonial properties littered throughout the Caribbean are a reminder of that fact

Apartheid in the Caribbean needs to be tackled ... it often goes unnoticed... as the people struggle to maintain ... life....food ,clothes, and shelter... well... some people anyway...
