Tired

Stuns me that there is any image of Afrikan people in the Western world, especially the US, as “lazy.” Afrikan people did the labor of the Western imperialist, colonialist, and slavery structure under force of arms for more than 400 years and at the end we spent the next 100 years trying to convince Europeans and Euro Americans they could and should live with their former slaves in peace (a battle that continues). Add in a few endless symbolic marches and you have to conclude we ain’t lazy, we’re just tired.
