No, I’m Not Grateful That Slavery Ended
Whenever I hear, implicitly or explicitly, that Black Americans should be satisfied, or at least grateful, for the racial progress thats been made in America over the centuries, I sigh a deep sigh within. It’s an ancestral sigh.
The first problem is simple: why should I be grateful for the cessation of an institution that should have never existed in the first place. This is an earnest question.
