Comment on Intergenerational Trauma: Understanding Natives’ Inherited Pain by Muhammad-Khalil Ibn Abdullah

Written by at June 15, 2017

I am a native Muslim person tied to the oldest Native peoples who mixed and married with Muslims from Africa. Talk about Traumatic military veteran 2003-2005. A strange person with even stranger language European, Native and African mixed together becoming Creole. Racism as well from other so-called native peoples against Blacks does not help. FBI had a task force just to intimidate me to stop organizing people to have sovereignty and their tribal rights. Whites put me into mental hospitals saying I was crazy. Blacks even stated I was crazy for my strange history and language prayers odd herbalist medicine ways. Just last week a black man told me to write my language and when I did he said it was a made up language because he could not read it. Why do people oppress others?
