So are you saying, that there are no racial or people distinction, upon the face of this earth?
And are you saying that the cultural heritage of the various people, upon the face of this earth are useless, and should be abandoned, because there is no difference beween the people, who are living upon the face of this earth?
Are you saying that Africa for the Africans, Europe for the Europeans, India for the Indians, China for the Chinese, are unnecessary and without and social and cultural value system?
Are you saying that it is alright, for children who were born in India, of Indian parents, and were brought up in the Indian tradition, culture and ways of life, should abandond there people, their heritage, and their legacy, and go and share their affection and abilities, with other races of people, instead of staying with their own people, and help to make the village where they were born and grown, a better place than how it was, when they were born and grown up in it.?
I do have some questions for the Creator of this Universe, if I ever have the opportunity to meet him externally. I have been asking some questions internally, about some of the things, which we are reasoning about, from time to time however.
I am gathering from your reasoning, that the color of people's skin is of no significance to you. The Africans, the European, the Indian, the Chinese are just the same, no difference whatsoever, is this really what you are trying to say to this international audience?
So why did the Europeans implement slave trading practices against us, since there are no differences among us as people?
And why did they implement the Aparthied system of downpression against African people, since there is no difference among us as people?
And why did they practice Color Bar in England and Canada, since you consider that there are no difference among the people of this earth?
And why are the Europeans in control of the greatest portions of the wealth of this earth, in every single Country upon the face of this earth where we can go?
I do think that the Europeans are very pleased when ever we talk in this manner, but they among themselves, do think that there is a difference among the people upon the face of this earth. If there is no difference, why are they still in Mama Africa plundering, and African people are still there suffering in their own country, while we are also here in poverty in the African diaspora. I am your humble student, looking forward to hear from you, just to see what I can learn.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE
Baba Ras Marcus.
