In Response To: Ras Marcus on anti-race mixing (ras adam simeon)
In a Black movement it is quite in order for Blacks to suggest that other Blacks should not race mix. It is in order because as Blacks we see nothing from the White system that is about fundamentally changing its attitude towards Blacks. So it is a direct response to Racism, White arrogance and material domination. The solution to Racism is not that Blacks must accommodate Whites, but Whites should change their ways, compensate Blacks, and back away from any form of control over Blacks. Whites should respect the rights of Blacks to chart their own course, and even make their own mistakes. You cannot have it both ways with privileges in both the White and Black communities. It is like keeping a box of apples, then asking the Black person to share half of his one apple with you in order to demonstrate that he is about equal opportunity. You will have a box PLUS a half of his ONE apple, and he just a half of an apple.
I am posting more on the thread, "How can mixed race help break down racism?"
