Political/Economic Racism Renders People of Color Ignorance By Design Per Miseducation…Thus We Don’t Know … Life, Family, Marriage, Divorce, Sex, Children Are A Business
…if but because, at the moment of death if there’s no will…no legal document of your wishes, the court decides your ‘unfinished’ (Black) business is their (white) business.

Marriage for ‘love’ is relatively new and European, not African. The origin of the word love, a European word, comes from Old English “lufu” and “leof” and Old High German “luba”.
In the 17th and 18th centuries, when European Enlightenment thinkers pioneered the idea that life was about the pursuit of happiness. They advocated marrying for love rather than wealth or status.
See movie Belle…a true Black story about marriage…
Remember, white male patriarchal culture, family & social structures about the ‘object’…the thing, money, materialism, status not the individual or the group. Before 17th century European marriage was about marrying for wealth or status…not even love. Whereas, in Africa, matriarchal culture, family, social structure is about the group…the reproduction of the group, the well being of the group…not love but respect, Ubuntu, I am because we are…I can’t exist without you.
But, Prince, probably knowing none of this was only aware of ‘the love thing’…not seeing his life as a business…because anything that involves one’s time, energy, and resources (skill, talent, sperm [produces life’]) is a business, right?
