Sue Brown

By Mandisa Gordon
Sue tells the story of how her ancestors were brutally enslaved, and taken away from their homeland.

Usurping

A tale of how they came one-day… slave traders Descendents of ‘wisdom carriers’
Their prime directive – to conquer and divide All those they once acknowledged as their forbearers

All those they once acknowledged as their forbearers in ancient times were recognized with respect and with reverence Evidence of this is well documented - example With the earliest depictions of their deities

Sue Brown

With the earliest depictions of their deities This reminded them of their true origins Overtime a shift in thought and climate manifested And an unrighteous intention developed

And an unrighteous intention developed
Now their perceptions presented new orientations With cunning they created then propagated their western religions Justifying enslaving Afrikans and all descendents

Justifying enslaving Afrikans and all descendents These traders on a mission appeared in their purpose built vessels Identified with the symbols of ‘their loving’ GOD Sponsored by the head of their vast kingdom

Sue Brown

Sponsored by the head of their vast kingdom They upheld the monopoly on cruelty and hypocrisy To their vessels we were lead by force - with the help of ‘the ignorant ones’
From the birthplace of our great ancestors

From the birthplace of our great ancestors The genesis…. of all life and humanity Where the highest livity and spirituality prevailed The First Order – Wisdom Knowledge and Truth

Sue Brown

The First Order – Wisdom Knowledge and Truth Set by the Supreme Beings before time – was dis-respected Plus instigating the various strategic demise my people This caused spiritual unbalance worldwide

This caused spiritual unbalance worldwide Effecting our continent like the after-effect of their plague Our natural mental and spiritual system…disrupted We were now ‘seasoned’ to become their slaves

Sue Brown

We now were seasoned to become their slaves Unprecedented - through an ongoing sadistic process Sanctified by the church and their noble peers To create their Great British Empire

To create their Great British Empire
They stole brutalized even killed habitually We were kept in hellholes as low as their mentality A reflection of their debauch beings

A reflection of their debauch beings
Could only manifest and express what it knows Perverted desires immoral acts and a movement To elevate their beliefs of superiority

To elevate their beliefs of superiority
Can you imagine the blood bath from it all?
Not forgetting the cries the shock the silenced beneath the Atlantic Branded into our inherent and receptive minds

Sue Brown

Branded into our inherent and receptive minds Are the psychological impact and physical stress Teamed with the constant state of denial - towards Our own lineage heritage and spirituality

Our own lineage heritage and spirituality In many cases the links have been shattered Now seasoned many of us hate even abuse each other Assimilating blindly the wrongs of our oppressors

Sue Brown

Assimilating blindly the wrongs of our oppressors The consequences of our unborn being seized from the womb… Afrika Hacked to pieces in front of dying mothers While fathers where forced to watch in submission

While fathers where forced to watch in submission Our nation of displaced peoples endure life traumatized Afrika’s heritage legacy and high culture stolen Becoming the breadbasket of the world

Becoming the breadbasket of the world
We’ve been re-named re-packaged re-distributed While the wealth of their nation grows rapidly Afrika and her children continues to suffer slowly

Sue Brown

Afrika and her children continues to suffer slowly The state of our collective mind is illegible No matter how much we think we are now FREE!
It’s the furthest away from the whole truth

It’s the furthest away from the whole truth When we celebrate the abolition of chattel slavery The reality is that the physical chains have been broken But the mental chains are still being enforced

But the mental chains are still being enforced It is for ‘I’ and ‘I’ to be ‘aware’ and emancipate our own minds Taking responsibility to find the healing process from deep within To re-connect with our spirituality - to manifest our righteousness livity

Unchained Voices

How powerful and beautiful we are as a people Despite all that has happened to us throughout time We Afrikans still continue to fight the struggle support and contribute to this world While some have even forgiven those who still continue to oppress us!
