Greetings Gman, I have red your post but I am just getting around to responding, these are very busy liberation times for me, I have to resist people who are deliberately trying to mislead my people, as well as their people. I do respect your frankness because that is what truth is all about. People who are born as children from mixed racial relationships cannot be blamed for the nistakes of their parents. But these children should be willing to admit, that they will be first to get the social and educational benefits, because of the lighter color of their skin and sometimes the appearance of their hair.
I do not consider mixed racial relatuionship, a genuine love activity in most cases, because a genuine love affairs, must be the love for your own people, your village, and roots and off spring above all things. The branches of a tree will, depend on it's roots to be productive and to survive, and so all people must remain connected, to their roots so that the village and it's people, with their culture and legacy can remain from generation to generation.
Most sexual relationships in these days, are not based on social and cultural dignity, but is based on materialism, drinking and listening to the music for too long, until their sexual urges run away with them, then the next day when they are sober, and realize that it is a mistake, they just decide to rebel against the dignity of their own people, although they are aware, that there are going to be disagreements in the families.
White people will definately oppose their children and relatives mating with black people, and conscious black people will definately oppose their children mating with white people, this is no joke.
When their is a marriage in an African family, it is not just the man and the woman who gets married, but both families are married in a united togetherness in order to expand and preserve the village. So when you despise, the natural creative mating activities of your own people to be with strangers, then you have become an instrument of divide and rule technically speaking.
You did mention how difficult it was for your perents to find some place to live, and how people were sceptic about them, that have not really changed to date,
I think when mix couple gets into a relationship, it is as a result of lust at first sight, or maybe a drinking situation, or a dance hall situation, or when this is not the case, the white woman may be in great distress, and the black man is in a good financial postion, and she flirt around with him, until he gets hook and forget about his original Roots. The same thing happens with the black woman too, she is in a very bad social condition, and considers that this white man will be able lift her living conditions, socially and economically. And so each of them forget and egnore their roots and get involve, for personal reasons instead of thinking about what effects, this relationship will have as it relates to unity in their original family village and roots.
To me it is a very beautiful thing to see a white family, or a Indian family, or a black family, stroling down the street with their children in their own image and likeness, their is a certain people's dignity about that. But I can tell you, that when a black man and a white woman, or a black woman and a white man walks in the streets, with all these mixed children, there is going to be some gazing at them along with some gossip, and they are aware of it, because they themselves feel very uncomfortable, as they stroll along and they try to aviod going to certain places.
Iam going to bring this to an end, since I have more things to do, and I know that there are some people on this forum, who will be ready, to pick these some lines out of my presentation, in order to take it out of context, so let me make it as plain as I did before, I think that it is a very good thing, for the white people whose ancestors have enslaved African people, to mate and marry in their among their own people, and leave black people alone, I also think that African people should mate with and marry among their own people, and leave white people alone. It is a very vain and foolish action to mate and marry, a set of people who have invaded the land of our ancestors, robbed us of Natural and Human resources, brutalized us across the middle passage, and have us in captivity for more than 500 hundred years until this very day.
Those white people who consider themselves as sympathizers, of the great struggles for the liberation of African people, must go tell their own people, about how wrong it was and still is, to have enslaved our people, and encourage them to make the needed corrctions. And above all, keep away from mating with African people from generation to gegeration.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
