I know for many this conversation MAY not be what you expect , so here goes. Please note, I am not afraid to have a healthy , honest, progressive discourse as long as you are respectful and willing to actually discourse. This conversation is about uplifting Africans in the diaspora and creating positive movements and change, not about bashing anyone else.
I’ve stated on numerous occasions that each person is absolutely entitled to their own set of belief systems. So I exercise mine and expect everyone else to exercise theirs.
When we date or marry a man or woman of another race we say whatever or that’s his/her business. But as soon as he/ she dates or marry another brother/sister dark skin or light skin we throw shade and ask why you choose THAT kind of man/woman? Something special about him/her? You hating on your own skin shade?
Well my friends that’s self hate. Regardless of the complexions.. you are black, they are black and we all belong to the same African race of people.
We have been conditioned to fight against each other for a purpose. The only way to dominate or keep us enslaved was to first divide us then conquer our minds, bodies and spirit.
This is no small feat in lieu of the african spirit. We are Warrior Kings and Queens who know our rightful place and destiny. The destiny which has been ripped, raped, brutalized and enslaved meaning to kill our survival instinctive spirit.
But it has failed. We are still here..thriving by a string, now we have to wake up to the reality of our meager existence and act.
The spirit of oneness with the earth and respect for the divine within each of us is a complete mystery to many of us present day.
But if you are fortunate enough to spend time studying and pursuing history and your culture you would realize how much you’ve lost and how much has been stolen and recycled in other ways that you don’t even recognize it anymore as your original belief, culture, etc.
Next step is for us to reunite as brothers and sisters and finally reestablish our financial foothold.
Two very important steps to rebuilding the African empire. Don’t be afraid to feel it, say it nor express it by living a more abundant , original and fruitful life. It’s your birthright.
A few Interesting feedback prior to posting on WordPress.com
“Part of the reasons why us as black people may comment on another black person marrying a ‘brother or sister’ is sometimes to do with the quality or lack of it in that person. Also this notion that because some of our ancestors were Kings and Queens does not automatically infer that right to us and why we peddle this stuff I just don’t understand.. be proud of you as a individual and then if you feel it works for you to align yourself to your race in regards to the history then go for it but stop inflating people’s sense of self/ego when they often can’t get the fundamental basic aspects of being a Decent mentally healthy Human Being! The more we tell ourselves that swallowing this stuff will make everything right is naive thinking.. I could go on and on… We have to stop lowering our standards of what is acceptable in society and raise our mental emotional and spiritual selves and truly work for the whole of our so called people.. Too often the black people who have the opportunity to really serve their ‘people’ do nothing of the sort and bring their ignorant greedy dark energy to deal with other people’s lives and this is still going on all over the world.. I applaud every black man woman and child who is trying to be real honest loving (I have no time for hatred of other races as that energy keeps you stuck) and trying to do the best they can in this very troubled world…
This is my own private opinion and not for public viewing as I don’t have any inclination to discuss this with the dreadful level of poor mental health which is very evident on social media.. I have better uses of my time.. Peace.. 😇”
“I couldn’t agree with you more. There have always been attacks on the black community in regards to being fruitful amongst each other. The definition of Self destructive behaviors is any behavior that negatively impacts our mind or body by the life choices we make. Negative meme’s and subconsciously racist post have become viral within our community and it has warped mentalities across the world. The time has come back to take back our mind, body and soul. and continue creating greatness.”
“I think it is a very powerful piece. Self love is something individually we have to work on… Love for each other will manifest as a result. Unity is our strength.
I have to read it a 2nd time…
Self love at a soul level… Not the ego level. That doesn’t manifest the result we need.”
“Critical feedback, lawd..! madam in reference to this topic, I would not have much to contribute especially after I got lablashed for commentative statements on a portion of Serena Williams life story leading to her present.
In TT a case of soft drinks.
It started off from her some press thing where she was speaking about those people who fight her down verbally and otherwise blah blah, I mentioned and still you’re with a white guy… and all hell came at me.”
