Distorted religion played a crucial role from start to today in the subjugation of Black people within this construct. They/we still struggle with it. Distorted religion. I wrestle with that. Too much to reflect on. The slave castles reminded of schools and education. I keep thinking about the system that is schooling for Black children here and elsewhere. Masses funneled into holding pens. Separate. 25% don't even make it to market (think retention and dropout rates). Then even more never survive the trip. Those who make it. Most can never return. Parallels.
