It seems that we agree on a few things. Slavery still exists in different forms, and it impacts more than just the black culture. And so, with your permission, which I really don’t need bc this is my blog, I would like to broaden the scope a bit. Instead of looking at this issue through the key hole of individual races, I pose a question that resonates with mankind…sorry, Colleen, person kind across the board.
I was remiss in asking the previous question without defining freedom. And that word is as ambiguous as what is considered slavery. Freedom is not doing whatever you want. People that do whatever they want end up slaves to drug addition, obesity, anger, sex, etc… In many ways, boundaries and guidelines create freedom. But in that, people who “fall into place” are slaves to the rules and unnecessary conformity. Until we have a clear definition of what it means to really be free, it is hard to debate the presence of slavery, (real and perceived.)
What does it mean to really be Free?
