I would hope that we not take up the nasty and lieing ways of the wicked , by adopting their methods of divisiness , we is one human family , one human race . Our struggle is not against skin colour but against a system(principalities-ideaologies) that distributes privileges and oppression based on skin colour . If we should lose sight of that ,we will become the thing we most dispise .
If we are all descendants of adam or lucy , them we are one race .Any seeming difference being one of variety and not genetic-hence we are all black people to varing degrees>some with more melanin and others with less .
True you are correct that the brothers who sold their own were forced or at the least misguided souls .I accept that as true . My point was and is that there actions yielded the same results . The question then becomes if i am forced or tricked into murdering my sister , am i free from guilt ?
Africa for Africans-unto him who much is given much is expected >he who has , shall be given more . he who has not , even that which he has shall be taken away .
Nothing is yours by birth , this is the hard lesson Esau learned at the hand of his brother Jacob who with the complicity of his mother, stole his birthrite . Though this nasty act of betrayal was done by Jacob , our Father in heaven still name him Israel-blessing .From this i learn that we must earn our keep ,and show ourselves continually deserving of that which is ours ,and maintain eternal vigilance over what we have , thru continous preparedness and improvement -forward ever backward never .
