We Are All One Family – I Am Very Proud Of My Ancestors From Senegal In Africa

Every person in America, and every person around the World, deserves to be treated with Absolute Dignity, and with Unconditional and Complete Respect.

The color of a person’s skin, or who they choose to Love or identify with, or what religion they believe in, should not even be thought about when we look at someone or when we think about someone.

As the great Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

The future of America has already been written by our history.

The combination of America welcoming such a large number of immigrants to our shores since the 1600’s, along with the American people learning that two people of different races are allowed to fall in Love, and very often do fall in Love, shows us that America is already a Country where most of us are of mixed race.

I am very proud to say that I am of mixed race, and that some of my ancestors were Heroes who were African-American slaves during the 1800’s here in America.

I am also very proud to say that of the 53 people who sailed on and survived the Mayflower trip to America, three of these heroes on the Mayflower were my ancestors.

And at the same time, I am very proud that some of my ancestors were Heroes who came from Senegal, the main slave port on the African coast, where so many of our ancestors were brought from to America.

And so, three of my ancestors were the heroes who sailed from Europe and began the American colonies, and more of my ancestors were the Heroes who first sailed from Africa to begin the history of African-Americans in America.

How neat is that, to have ancestors who were the first to do both.

I personally have more African-American ancestry and genetics than President Obama or Vice-President Harris, because neither President Obama or Vice-President Harris have ancestors who were African-American slaves.

President Obama is of mixed race with 50% of his ancestors being white, and 50% of his ancestors being from Africa without ever becoming African-American.

Therefore, none of President Obama’s ancestors were slaves here in America.

Likewise, Vice-President Harris does not have any ancestors who were American slaves, either. She is of mixed race with 50% of her ancestors being from India, and 50% of her ancestors being directly from Jamaica without ever becoming African-Americans.

In fact, President Obama has said that he has ancestors who were American slave owners, but he has no ancestors who were American slaves.

Likewise, Vice-President Harris’s father has said that she has ancestors who were major slave owners in Jamaica, and that like President Obama she has no ancestors who were American slaves.

Therefore, the truth of race in our Country continues to be overlooked and not paid attention to because if President Obama, Vice-President Harris, and I were standing next to each other, then people would not think that I could become the first President or Vice-President in American history who has ancestors who were African-American slaves.

But that is the truth of our America.

It is surprising to some people that I have ancestors who were slaves of African-American race, but my situation just highlights how America is already a mixed-race Country.

The color of our skin does not reveal the truth in our genetics, and the color of our skin does not reveal the truth in who our ancestors are.

Therefore, our skin color should not be how we are categorized.

Studies utilizing genetic testing show that the average person in America who considers himself or herself to be African-American has genetics that are 73% African-American and 26% from other races, including 24% of their genetics from European white ancestors and .8% of their genetics from Native Americans.

In fact, genetic experts now say that they do not think there is a single person in America whose ancestors lived in America during the time of slavery, who is of 100% African-American genetic ancestry.

Therefore, all of us with ancestors who were slaves are a combination of both the African-American and white races.

Likewise, 3.5% of Americans who would consider themselves to be of white ancestry have at least 1% African-American ancestry.

I first realized this when I was playing with the Patriots. I had a friend, Cedric Jones, the great wide receiver from Duke, who after retirement went on to become the outstanding President of the NFL Youth Program.

Football fans would have considered Cedric to be a fantastic African-American football player, but Cedric told me that some of his ancestors were English and German and Scottish, and from several more countries.

Therefore, history shows us that America is already well on its way to becoming a Country where we are all going to be of mixed race, and where we all going to have some color to our skin.

History and current genetic testing is very clearly telling us, and showing us, that in the future everyone in America is going to have some amount of African-American ancestry.

And if any of us do not already, then we are also all going to have some amount of Hispanic ancestry, Latin America ancestry, Asian ancestry, Jewish ancestry, Arab ancestry, and Native American ancestry.

Along these lines, our Latin-Americans have been found to be 6.2% African-American ancestry, 18% Native American ancestry, and 65% European ancestry.

As a nation, we are soon going to become similar in skin color appearance to countries like Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic because we are just a few decades behind Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, since they evidently began having interracial relationships a little sooner than we did.

The reason this fact is very important, and the reason why I am writing it here, is to show that we are already all related to each other.

We are already one American family.

And if any of us are not related to each other yet, then very soon we will be related to each other through our children, our grandchildren, or our great-grandchildren, when they choose to marry each other and have their own children.

Their children will be related to both You and I, bringing You and I together into the same family.

And so if we are not all related yet, then one day we will all be related. That is a certainty.

Which means that You and I should already consider ourselves Family.

And in the same way, all of us should consider ourselves Family already.

There is no such thing anymore as people being either African-American or being white, or being Hispanic or Latin or being white, because most of us already have some of the same ancestors with each other.

We are already related to each other, and we are already Family members together.

Therefore, anyone who does anything racial, or violent, or unkind against another person is actually doing this racism and violence and unkindness to their own Family, and to their own Family members.

And so if you hurt these people now, then you are going to be hurting your own Family, hurting your own children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren in the future.

As a result, focusing on racial divisions and on racial differences between us is not what we should be doing, and anyone who attempts to cause racial divisions and racial differences is not being accurate with our American Family.

Our society and a large number of our politicians are not telling us the truth now.

These politicians are trying to create divisions between us so they can attempt to get votes from us that will allow them to stay in power.

They think that the more they can divide us, then the longer they can stay in power.

By separating us then they keep us weaker. They keep us from being able to Unite as the one big Proud and Loving American Family that we are.

But we are smarter than this because we know that we are already one American Family.

We know we are already a mixed-race country, and so we know we should not be focusing on racial division.

There is actually no truthful way for unethical politicians to divide us because it is impossible to divide people who are already the same.

Instead of us being divided, what we should be doing is treating every single person equally with Absolute Respect, Dignity, Love, Understanding, Kindness, Thoughtfulness, and Caring.

No matter what shade we are. Because all of us are already a shade, from lighter to darker.

But we are already all shades. And so it makes no difference which shade we are.

As my hero Martin Luther King, Jr. famously told us, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.“

My Goal is to help the Great Dr. King to accomplish this Dream.

It is time for us to start judging Content of Character, in fact well past time, and as a Nation we are going to Begin to do that.

America is already a Beautiful Mixed-Race Country, and so we are going to begin Celebrating that Beauty in Each Of Us and All Of Us.

Celebrating the Existential and Timeless Ancestral Beauty in Each and Every One Of Us.

And As We Celebrate Us, and As We Celebrate Our Combined Infinite Ancestral Beauty, we will help Every Person who needs our help, and we will treat Every Single Person with Absolute Respect, Dignity, Love, Understanding, Kindness, Thoughtfulness, and Caring.

But we also know and BELIEVE that just Giving This Wonderful Caring Love On Its Own Is Not Enough.

And, therefore, we are also going to Personally Guide Every Person to Learn To Fish On His or Her Own, BELIEVING and Encouraging and Inspiring Every Person Along Their Path To Their Own American Dream, because it is through Learning to Fish On Our Own that Each of Us Discovers Our Life’s Purpose, Develops and Expands Our Own Personal Pride in Who We Are, Creates and Restores and Strengthens Our Self-Love and Our Self-Dignity, Reveals The Greatness And Hero Within You, Lifts Your Spirit To Soar, and Builds A Tremendously Successful Life For You and For Your Children.

Let Us Build A Wonderful World For Our Children.

This Begins By First Building A Tremendous and Wonderful World For You.

So That Together You and We Can Build A Wonderful World For Your Children.
