"We emphasize this because it is necessary to refute the settler propaganda that Colonial Amerika was built out of a history of struggles “for representative government,” “democratic struggles” or “class struggles,” in which common whites and Afrikans joined together. No one, we note, has yet summoned up the audacity to maintain that the Indians too wished to fight and die for settler “democracy.” Yet that same claim is advanced for Afrikan prisoners (slaves), as though they either had more common interests with their slavemasters, or were more brainwashed. To examine the actual conflicts and conditions under which alliances were reached totally rips apart these lies." - Settlers by J. Sakai

reading this quote and thinking about all the africans who escaped slavery and went to live with natives.
