Greenleaf: It's Not Just Another Story It's Our History
I write this blog about Greenleaf asking that you not sit in judgment of the characters also not just view as entertainment but to view as our ancestor's and our life's history so that we may better understand one another as a people and have compassion for each other.
Let's start at the beginning, after all the tail can't be straight is the head is crooked. "Dear Ole Daddy! In order to have a better understanding of daddy's behavior ( the head of the family ) I implore you to read Willie Lynch Letter And The Making Of A Slave. It's a thirty page book very short and takes about fifteen minutes to read unless you get trapped trying to wrap your brain around the idea. Afterwards I guarantee you will fully understand the nature of the negro behavioral patterns. It is my summation and belief that the early Alpha Negro males molested their own man child as a way of control and domination passed down through generations.Therefore as repulsive as it may be don't sit in judgment of dear daddy for not being able to break the chains of bondage. As for the Negro women they existed mainly for breeding, and the torment they too endured was immeasurable. The women were treated as inferior and had no voice in any matter. So if dear daddy was doing the boy or girl child she'd better look the other way if she wanted to live.
There is no other race on earth that has been detrimentally and infinitely tampered with as the American Negro. Example name one american negro whose traceable bloodline is pure.
Furthermore most american family surnames were that of slave masters.
For the same reason how christianity is portrayed in the Greenleaf story and is incidentally pretty much the same in the world we live, some years ago I denounced religion and myself as a religious person. I simply state that I'm a BELIEVER and I have accepted Christ Jesus for me nobody else. I also truly believe that in order for us as a race of people to be free from the shackles that bind us to our ancestral past we must first understand in order to then forgive. Remember love does really conquer all.
I will say this: It always amazes me when folk quote parables and bible verses solely to suit their agendas.
Oprah Greenleaf is a force to be reckoned with, and I dare not make light of it! You've out done yourself with this one. It's a wound that still festers to this day affecting countless.
Thanx again for sharing. I simply hope that the world is watching Greenleaf with an open mind and heart. Dear Oprah I do hope Greenleaf is global and available for viewing in all languages. In my opinion it's more than worthy of it.
In my family I'm similar to the character you portray, sister Mavis.
STRICTLY FOR LAUGHS
