i am not yours.
i did not make the long hard journey through and across the spirit world
be a man’s ocean.
my body is not yours.
my mouth is not yours.
my water is not yours.
nothing i am belongs to you
unless i decide
open my hand
give it to you.

The main problem with the Native American and African, in dealing with the European during this early period, was the African’s tragic naiveté. [S]He had never dealt extensively with this kind of people. [S]He came out of a society where nature was kind; nature furnished him [/her] enough food, enough land, enough of the basic things [s]he needed to live a pretty good life. Old African & Native American societies were governed by honor and obligation. Land could neither be bought or sold; there were no fights over the ownership of land. The land belonged to everyone.
The European, coming from a society where nature was rather stingy and where he had to compete with his brother for his breakfast, his land, and his woman, had acquired a competitive nature that the African could not deal with. In order to justify the destruction of these African societies, a monster that still haunts our lives was created. This monster was racism. The slave trade and colonial system that followed are the parents of this catastrophe.
