Sometimes I think the history taught to me has been altered…

Sometimes I get some pretty wild conspiracy theories unique to my particular set of circumstances…

To begin… I have studied American and World history in school, I know the basics and many of the important events and things like that… I can have a discussion within the confines of what was taught to me…

But I will get stuck on something like what my Grandpa told me when I was little… When talking about Cuba and the family and everything, my grandpa said, “We never owned slaves”… in fact I almost think he went on to elaborate that slaves escaped and went to Cuba for protection…

So, growing up, I always thought that Cubans didn’t have slaves and that slaves actually sought refuge in Cuba… You can imagine my surprise when reading the history books that Cuba had slaves and etc, etc…

Which makes me think back to what my grandpa said… was he just saying that our family didn’t own slaves?… or was he essentially telling me the history everybody is feeding me is a lie in many ways…

Which, when I think to my situation, I almost think a large portion of what was happening, was uniting Caucasians and Hispanics/Latinos… Uniting Europe, Uniting the Americas, etc… it goes beyond that, but I have a feeling that that accounts for a generous portion of what was happening… I think it was also to unite the world as well…

So, part of me wonders if the Spanish portion of my history isn’t completely different… that Spain actually didn’t enslave people when they came to the America’s… But, a unique version of history was created for me, to help me be in the proper mindset to help unite everyone… That I also would be less likely to side more with one side of my family or the other… they created a shared blame version of history, just for me, to invoke certain beliefs and feelings…

This is just the tip of the iceberg with these train of thoughts… I may have been given a very unique history for my situation and upbringing… really makes me wonder how much different the world could have been my entire life… how much the world may have already known about me in a way… how much was to be expected of me when I got older…

I think billions, if not trillions have been invested in me in many different ways, to raise me to fulfill a very important mission…

I am sure you will be hearing more about what goes on in my mind…
