3rd Edition- Black history, Psychology, Philosophy, African American History. Why the Africans brought to the Americas under slavery should not be call slaves.It is like an idea whose time has come. This book looks at slavery like no other. It is the paradigm shift we have been waiting for. It is the first book to dispel the stigma of slave from the identity of African Americans. This book is truly revolutionary because it goes against the grain of how we have been educated to view the history of Africans under slavery in the Americas. Racism in America will never be healed until this error is corrected. “I first discovered this error in 1990. I was writing an article about slavery. For clarity, I went to the dictionary and looked up the word slave. That is when it hit me. The definition did not apply to the ancestors of African Americans whom we call slaves. After that, I began to look up the word slave in every dictionary I could find. I discovered that the definition had gone virtually unchanged for over one hundred years until 1993 when I first published Why We Shouldn’t Call Our Ancestors as a 19 page pamphlet. Over time, this understanding grew from an article, to a pamphlet, to the third edition. And, still, more learning and insights are coming.”For a common understanding of the word slave, this book provides a definition and history of the word slave using the American Dictionary of the English Language by Noah Webster (1867), The Webster’s New Twentieth Century Dictionary, Unabridged Second Edition (1979) The Henry Holt Encyclopedia of WORD and Phrase Origins (1990) and the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 4th Edition (2000) word History.To prove that the word slave is a bogus word it compares the definition from the above sources to the ideas expressed in the Declaration of Independence. To prove that the definition does not fit, it uses quotes from esteemed historians such as John Hope Franklin and Lerone Bennett Jr. Just as all cars are not a Cadillacs, this book will show why all forms of human servitude are not slavery. It will show that slavery was a system human servitude that was unique to all other forms. This is important when it comes to understanding the impact that slavery has had on Black African Americans and Euro-Americans. It will show how the word slavery is being mis-applied, which causes confusion about the subject and makes the word slave more acceptable when applied to Africans who were in the system of slavery. This book will explain how and why this label has a negative effect on the esteem, self-esteem and psyche of African Americans on a conscious and subconscious level. To do that, it uses insights from Dr. Martin Luther King’s speech, “The Drum Major Instinct.” and other common sense examples. It will show how this belief serves as a core belief that supports racism other negative beliefs about Black African people.Next, this book will show how and why, in the context of American history, the label of slave leads Black African Americans to the most grievous error of abandonment of form. It will explain what is meant by “form” by using quotes from some of our most trusted documents and allegory. It will show why abandonment of form leads to disproportionate suffering.It will show how and why calling our ancestors slaves is a form of Blasphemy. It will explain what blasphemy is and why calling the ancestors of Black African people who were captured under slavery, slaves is a form of blasphemy. Until modern time, blasphemy was punishable by death. (Matthew 15:4) This book will strengthen our mental and spiritual connection to our ancestors and ultimately to the Creator of Man.In the end, it suggests questions about Black history that our children should be able to answer. It also suggests names that we can apply to our ancestors instead of the word slave.
