In Response To: Race..so now what? (ras adam simeon)
I think if people have to view this thread in context, then they should know that this thread was started as a response to comments on another thread, "A paper on race", which was also started by Ras Adam. That other thread was also posted to address some other comments made on the "Garvey speaks on Haile Selassie I" thread.
"A paper on race

To make sense of that thread, one has to see the other views that were posted on another thread:
"Garvey speaks on Haile Selassie I
I am referring to this specific post that is copied below.

Elder, this part strikes me as an anti-race mixing vibe. I think interacial relationships are a great tool to break down racism. I think it helps every generation if say, people had grandkids of a diff race and they loved them, it may open their eyes to how ignorant they were raised. I think every generation get a lil better at racism and that mixed families will help that. I went to a synogouge(sp) once and the rabbi was up there talking about how serious it was not marrying out of the race etc and it reminded me of some hitler racial purity vibes. People should be free to love who who they love, no matter race creed or class. my opinion. respectfully in one perfect love,
(*geting on my asbestos suit for the flame throwing to follow)
There are responses on those links that I posted above.
