"None are more hopelessly enslaved than those that falsely believe they are free" – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The quote above is one of my favorites and the video illustration below provides the perfect example of it's meaning.
Slavery Isn't Over They Just Changed What They Called It
Link to "The Most Dangerous Superstition" (PDF) referenced at the end of the video.
"To hold a people in oppression you have to convince them first that they are supposed to be oppressed." .. "Powerful people cannot afford to educate the people that they oppress, because once you are truly educated, you will not ask for power. You will take it." – John Henrik Clarke
Educating slaves was illegal. After slavery, information was suppressed and black people were miseducated. If you attended a predominately Black public school, chance are you were not taught much about the law. Court.rchp.com provides free legal information so you can help yourself if you can't afford an attorney. Until we free our minds from oppressive conditioning, we can never truly be free. Keep that in mind as you watch the videos below.

Dr. John Henrik Clarke – You Have No Friends
Dr. Clarke, (January 1, 1915 – July 12, 1998), was a writer, historian, professor, and a pioneer in the creation of Africana studies and professional institutions in academia starting in the late 1960s.
Dr. Clarke played an important role in the early history of Cornell University's Africana Studies & Research Center and authored, contributed, or edited 24 books.
Dr. Clarke is often quoted as stating that "History is not everything, but it is a starting point. History is a clock that people use to tell their political and cultural time of day. It is a compass they use to find themselves on the map of human geography. It tells them where they are, but more importantly, what they must be."
