“The idea that sex is something a woman gives a man, and she loses something when she does that, which again for me is nonsense. I want us to raise girls differently where boys and girls start to see sexuality as something that they own, rather than something that a boy takes from a girl.”

— Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

The Ghost in the Black Man Genes!

Have you heard of the Ghost that is in our Genes. How we are affected by our ancestors how they experience certain social factors such as famine and in our case slavery and how they dealt with their
environment, their diet or emotional health is implicitly past down to their descendants. Maybe just maybe that is the reason why we are as a people still enshackled, bounded in by the coffles of our ancestral blood to the psychology of slaves, our fears, notions and shortcomings as a race maybe embedded by 4 centuries of subhuman conditions in our genes. 

Maybe we cannot help who we are and what we have become as a people. Failing to lead, always aspiring to follow. But then if our African Ancestors build the great cities of Timbuktu and the pyramids of Giza then why have we not inherited their creative and inventive genes. 

Has the horrors of slavery destroyed our original genetic makeup? Our ancestors fail to cope with slavery and remained oppressed for four centuries. And we are eternally in our minds, subjugated by the ancestral ghosts in our genes. 

Does that mean that someone has to be constantly monitoring us and beating our young men over the backs so that they can be kept in line? 

Do our women believe that like in the days of slavery they are only content to be breeders of children without much care because "backra" will take care of them. 

We should be changing what we pass on to our children if their personalities are inherently shaped by what we did before they are conceived. We would need to be careful what lifestyle patterns we transfer to them in our Chromosomes. 

We want our children to be haunted by the best qualities and help their children react to the severest conditions possible.
