Horrible Black Friday: Nexus between thanksgiving, Wampanoag genocide, Afrikan slave wholesale and inevitable stampedes by capitalism.

“Until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter”
– Afrikan Proverb

1600s remains the darkest time on the lives of indigenous people across the world, as it represents a European settlers’ unprovoked aggression, escalated invasion of people’s land, slaughtering or subjugating them. Sigh! It is unfair to indigenous people of the world to point out 1600s as the “darkest period” on the basis that all their lives they have been dogged by misery and death every time settlers came into contact with them anywhere in the world.

 1652 remains the hallmark of conquest in Southern Africa, 1620 an albatross that stubbornly weighs the Wampanoag nation deeper in the belly of Plymouth Beach.

On this glorious week of the slaves, where many attempted to escape the death plantations of the southern states of America; Skema Biko Nights is bent to dampen excitement associated with “Black Friday” by showing the dangers of ignorance to history and memory.
