What does the sins of our fathers mean ?

The premise is that children suffer punishment related to the father.

Not enough information, give examples. For instance four hundred years of slavery, and not even forty acres and a mule.

Basically its akin to a "generational curse" where a habitual sin is "carried" from generation to generation within a family line. Not only the sin itself but the effect of the sin as well. It can be thought of as sowing seeds in one generation which bears its fruit in future generations. There is religious controversy regarding the precision and details of its literal impact. Modern psychology bears witness to the idea at least loosely. In today's changing family dynamics (compared to the tribally clear family lines of the Hebrews of whom we get the phrase from) it may be difficult to trace clear patterns of sin via a "family tree".

It may very well not be in your back yard but many a family would hang a black man just for fun and have a pic nic ( pick a n..... ), while doing it. That's a sin.

If a white women says shee'd been raped by a black Man, central Park jogger, where inoccent men went to prison because of the police in their haste to Make miss Daisy feel safe, used ( as usual ) poor or no Investagtive skill's, lock up and Jail the first black teen you see in the street. The Emmit Till story is another example. Here some woman in the south told her KKK friend's a young black boy whistled at her ( the Result's will never be forgotten ). I will never forget , if i live to be a thousand the mayor of New York, julieanne and his Police killing a black Man AMADU DIALLO,an inoccent Man, Shooting him 40 or more times mostly in the back as cowards alway's do, and getting away with it as white racial justice does. There are many other's i could point out as example's.

The treatment of your slave for four hundred years will never be forgotten, the slave master's children's treatment in their (Injustice ) system's and court's of "LAW" today will never be forgotten, the Slave Master's children in their Demonic scheme to deprive the so called negro of a true and just freedom. ( some land in this country they built sun up to sun Down four hundred years ) to go for self, have a prison slave agenda that's growing in leap's and bound's with nothing in sight for the poor negro but crime of some kind any where a black Man turn's in this country its a crime in accordence to the slave Master's children because they feel they can bring the once slave Down with them and that threat will not allow them a fair and Just solution, which brings us to your father's sin's and your payment the complete and final destruction of America; by the might and the power of ALLAH.
