This was a really hard read, and I learned something which I always love. I had no idea Europeans looking for salty skinned slaves to make the Transatlantic voyage licked prospective slaves. We have been punished for so long because of the lies about race. It doesn't seem America is ready to let go of the either. I am a little shook after reading this essay. It was awesome, but makes me feel sad about my status here in America. Colonization is the worst thing that has happened to the earth in centuries. This proves it.
