  1. Religion is the anchor on the chains that have kept black people mentally enslave to this day. Until we as a collective can let go of the concept of religion that was forced upon us, or at the very least create our own (it’s all imaginary anyway), we will never truly be free from the mind control of those in power. The bible and all other “holy” books are just words written down by other people.
    I believe faith is something a person can only have is oneself. It is a mindset that can enable a person to overcome the greatest of obstacles. However, faith in anything other than oneself is just wishing.
    That’s my 2 cents for everyone that was asking (no one).
