I am in NO WAY saying that what you just posted is not True. These are known facts. But your response implies that you want me to hate the color of my skin, or feel some kind of guilt for what people that I don't even know did. I refuse. I have educated ymself, and keep educating many of my white brothers and sisters in my own personal life, about the reality of our racist past. But the struggle against injustice is not for Africans alone (just look at the Chinese/Tibet shituation, or the Irish bullshit going on). Many people have wronged many others (including non-human species, or even our Great Mother) in our existence as a species, and maybe we should all stop???? Did I say anything in my post that was not True? If it weren't for Rome, there would be no Western Christianity, no slavery of Africans, no killing my own pagan anscestors in the name of Christ...etc...lot of injustices to people of all color by Rome! My point was that isn't it time for us to stop sinning against eachother? Sin in Hebrew means to miss the mark, as in that of an archer and a target....do you miss the mark? Does any one here on this born claim to not miss the mark? Can we work on that as a species?
By the way, I never ONCE mentioned heaven, so please don't put words in my mouth.
