See how you can and do recognize differences, and also see and feel that they function differently. All these differences do not change them from being part of one whole cosmos.
In a similar light, Black and White people do respond differently to environmental stimuli, and based on European miseducation Blacks were/are oppressed. (I believe you already know this)
How does highlighting the oppression and unique experiences of Blacks change us from being one set of people in the human race? Which Blacks on the board are saying that we are not of the human race?
Is it that you still hold the view that people at the end of Western/European abuses, Blacks and Caribbean people etc., should just roll over and smell the roses, and go sit in the beautiful sun and feel the beautiful Caribbean breeze that Jah made?
Do you think that Blacks have a right to voice their disgust with the system and advocate what they feel is a better way forward without needing the approval of Whites, or even their input?
