They made us think that Africa was a land of jungles, a land of animals, a land of cannibals and savages…they were so successful in projecting this negative image of Africa, those of us here in the West of African ancestry, the Afro-American, we looked upon Africa as a hateful place…Why? Because those who oppress know that you can’t make a person hate the root without making them hate the tree. You can’t hate your own and not end up hating yourself. And since we all originated in Africa, you can’t make us hate Africa without making us hate ourselves…And what was the result? They ended up with 22 million Black people here in America who hated everything about us that was African.
