Dr. Merryweather writes, “Early in America’s history, laborious duties were expected by white America to be done by Black people. Black and brown people were always very intelligent, energetic, creative, and hardworking. It is very sad that many history writers have made a mockery of Black people by depicting them as lazy and unintelligent. Black people, individually and collectively, have proven again and again that they are equal to any task that confronts them by the grace of God.”
