An interesting comparison. Going further you could say that while some African Americans are confined to an invisible zoo when it comes to their heritage, others are learning the laws of the jungle, running wild in the the inner cities. Also, zoo animals are nurtured and groomed and cared about, unlike America's black residents.

Mentally speaking, it is important for Blacks to know about their origins, but preoccupation with the past is not going to be that beneficial for these uprooted natives because, in order to survive, they have to adjust to the environment of a different country that requires learning to stay afloat in the mainstream.

History is one thing; economics is another. The assimilated descendants of slaves have to be able to cope with the present in order to thrive. We have to become a new breed that endeavors to provide for the future not linger in the past. IMO.

Interesting anaology, but why limit it to Black people . We are all "Bred in Captivity". What makes of any different in that regard to the Europenas, Mexcains, Asian's or any other group that has been here more than a couple of generations?

Most white people don't have passports are not clamoring to any great extent to recapature the European traditions from the "old country".
