August 13, 2015 marks 95 years of Red, Black and Green. We have been encouraging everyone to send a message, make a statement and demonstrate mental emancipation by wearing Red, Black and Green on that day.
Then we had an insight. Why should we wait until August Thirteen? It came to us in a flash. Why not start a petition to light the White House Red, Black and Green on August Thirteen? What could we put in a petition that would motivate people to sign such a petition? Suddenly from out of nowhere, “honor the who slaves built the White House.”
“We’re the slaves who built the White House and the economy of the South.” Barack Obama said that during his remarks at the 50th Anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery Marches. It’s true. laves were part of the crew which built the White House. And the United States Capitol. Michelle Obama mentioned it in the early days of the Obama Administration during a visit to the White House by schoolchildren from the District of Columbia. In a column, Washington Post columnist Paula Dvorak asked, “why should you care?”
We say we should care because it is time to let the healing begin. The United States of America has yet to engage in a process of healing form the atrocities of slavery. We use the term Mchakato Wa Uponyaji. That is a Swahili phrase which means “process of healing.” As we heal we realize what is it we are healing from. We are healing from the Maafa. The great disaster which deprived humans of their humanity through unbridled capitalism.
We can do all of that right this very second. Just go to the link below and sign the petition to light the White House as the RBG House on August Thirteen.
