Generational Oppression

You think just cuz our great-great-great granddaddy and grandmomma go through slavery and other pain, it all finished?? No ma’am. It ain’t finished. Think of this like basketball. There be four quarters. We got way more than four quarters. We got 400 years of pain. It all go around all day and ain't no stopping. Their hurt aint done cuz it lives in us now. We experience what they went through. They got bitten. We gettin bit into pieces now. They got whupped. We still got it today. Our ancestors got called ugly names that we dun repeat. We got called uglier names today. Dang we get rollovers from our ancestors’ pains. Their struggles, my struggles today.
