Break de Chains

With the first cold, metallic sensation, Africans began to jangle de chains, rattle de chains, stake de chains, and to break de chains: the chains of
european aggression and oppression. The Black Liberation Army is Africans' most recent effort to break de chains.

Near the end of the 15th century Portugal began trade negotiations with the African Kingdoms Angola and the Kongo. Before long Africans knew they were aggressed upon, being tricked. As we had done more than a thousand years before with the Assyrians, Persians, Greeks and Romans, we put up a formidable resistance to protect Black civilization. So began the long and continual modern resistance to european aggression.
