You and I have no disagreement .For it is true that all european are guilty of perpetuating and benifitting from that cruel injustice done against InI .To us fall the responsiblity of lifting this heavy burden from off the backs of our people .How we go about it , is truly secondary in this regard .
What does it matter if the false construct- of different races is right . African man in the diaspora , thru no fault of his own making (except lack of preparednes)he is what he is today .
Where do we draw this line of race ?
Sure for the wrongs that have been done to us , justice must prevail .Without doubt compensation is part of our just reward .
Would... because you and I , do not wish to use the same method ?...cause us not to join forces and work together to our common goal and primary purpose ?
For we must now realize , that though our methods of getting their may differ ,our aim is one !
Because in the past my mother was raped by the white man ,so my brother came out looking white and i who share the same father(the rapist) looks black , means that i should hate him ?....He must now suffer for the sins of our father ?..
How do you define a blackman/ African ?
Adam is a man ,that is first and foremost , and should treated as all other man are .
It is good when man can rise above his nature , but man is human , and not yet divine , some will succumb to temptations of the flesh . what are we a natural people going to do , write rules against nature .What of the possible offspring ,place him/her in oppression because of the acts of mother and father .
Be careful we become our own emeny !
