Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome

Now thats what i call deep seeded hate... some ol furious boiling to the bone hate. And to think this was right around the time (or soon after) that some of us were born.

A short post today, on my way back to the U.S. after a bit of traveling. Just want to shout out to my peeps on the link:Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome

The DVD, the book, the whole damn joint is going deep into the collection as soon as I touch down. Holla back!!

"Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome"

The Theory of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome suggest that centuries of slavery followed by systemic racism and oppression have resulted in multigenerational adaptive behaviors, some of which have been positive and reflective of resilience, and others that are detrimental and destructive. In brief, Dr. Leary presents facts; statistics and documents that illustrate how varying levels of both clinically induced and socially learned residual stress related issues were passed along through generations as a result of slavery.
