Should I look for an opportunity to escape from the self impose plantation of thoughts about me? I have been bound by lack of knowledge of self and the truth. What can set me free from my oppression? Should I blame my lack of trying to escape, on the other race? As the days and weeks pass, I began to feel helpless. I felt that I could not do anything to stop the, “Stay on the Plantation, it benefits me” way of thinking in others nor myself. I wanted to shout out, “Wake up, wake up! You, who are sleep walking, wake up!” As I slowly began to awake, I realized that we were being indirectly labeled as weak, inferior, stupid, hopeless, and more by black leaders. Many said that it was the other race's fault that we are on the plantation.
When some began to question these leaders, they are attacked with insults, lies, or character assassinations.
