Breaking the Chains of Mental Slavery

There are a number of problems affecting the Black Community and slavery is the root cause for all of them. We are still haunted by the "ghost of the plantation." We need to address the key issue, we have PTSD from slavery. If we don't acknowledge what happened to us, we'll never get over it. Below are some key slave behavioral traits that we still carry with us in the 21st century. 

Work

Slavery passed down a negative and traumatizing viewpoint of work. It was forced labor from sun up to sun down until you died or were completely disabled. Generations later, African Americans for the most part despise working and equate it to punishment. On the other hand, the slavemaster was never in the field. So to look successful without working became an aspiration for hustlers and pimps. Many African Americans became "welfare queens" to avoid working because of this as well.
