Teddy Wells' take on the movie "12 years A Slave". 
This movie was excellent but brutally honest about the struggles the white people put black people through in order to gain freedom in this country. As I was watching this movie I had all sorts of thoughts go through my head. The one I wish to share is how EVIL the white people was to black people in those days. Unfortunately that same evil has been taught and passed down through to several generations. That same evil manage to spread even to some of our black people which causes us to treat each other the same way white people treated black people during slavery. Here are a couple of examples; Every time we pass each other on the streets and do not speak or acknowledge each other we are only mimicking what we saw the white do to us for many years. Every time a black person see another black person open a business and ignore them and then hope for their failure is another reenactment of what was done to black people by the white people in many instances. That same evil also still exist today in some white people and is being camouflaged by kind and patronizing words. After watching this movie and reflecting on my own life experiences, I acknowledge the fact that I have come across many white people that saw the human in me and not as someone property or someone deserving to be hung. Many of my white friends today I consider them my lifelong buddies. So therefore, I did not walk away with a distrust of all white but understanding the face of evil. Once you understand the face of evil and identify it, you must remove yourself away from them and not allow them to follow you to your purpose. If you do they will claim your prize when you arrive and commence to destroy you if you challenge them on the ownership. So make sure they are far away from you that they do not even see your footprints. Just know that by the time you get to your destiny they will have already perished. 
In honor of the freedom we enjoy today and the price that was paid by our ancestors, we owe it to them to FIND OUR PURPOSE and be about the business of making it happen.
"12 Years A Slave" is a MUST SEE. You will better understand this post once you have seen it.
