3063, RE: Value of black history

Yeah, most definitely, but I think on the flipside a lot of intellectuals now too are acting like all that suffering and struggle went for naught because the hierarchies are the same. That is true to an extent, but dont they think that the fact the history is still FAR from common knowledge in black America, let alone America as a whole is affecting that? People are giving up too soon on education, edification, shared but personal responsibilities and a host of other things which, despite setbacks and being lights years from utopia, have created progress and fading into whiny postmodernism. too many of the people that KNOW history are choosing to ignore or devalue it.
