African Remembrance Day 2013

People should not have been dehumanized and treated as chattel for the sake of profit and racist ideology. I want that these facts should be admitted to by ALL the people who perpetrated the wrongs against the millions of victims of slavery. After such an admission, it would be incumbent on us all to lovingly build monuments to honor both the humanity of the victims and to ensure that the monuments are a constant reminder to us that what happened to them should never again be allowed to happen to anyone. In other words, because we love them today on this day, our Remembrance Day, even though we did not personally know them, we will work to ensure that this never happens to others, who equally we do not know at the present time."
