We must try our best to preserve true dignity and integrity of African people every where. We must try our best to preserve our culture heritage and legacies as African people every where. We must create our own definitions from time to time when and where necessary, and do not act as if the defintions of Europeans is the only definition which is to be allowed or followed. We must be able to speak for our selves, and create and plan our own ways of living, without being dictated to by Europeans, as to what we can do for ourselves, as African people and what we cannot do.
You once mentioned about a fund raiser, in order to see how much we would be able to correct, the social deprivations among African people every where. That was a very Noble suggestion, but where are those who are ready to have this plan implemented? It is always good to try to correct things intellectually, but what about correcting things financially. Why can't we create a financial value system and let it work for Africa people every where? Why can't we cut out the smoking of cigarettes and every other thing, as well as stop from drinking the Europeans beers, and other alcohol, and put that that money into a international fund, for the correction of our social and community distresses.
It is really not good enough for us to just spend our time contending about various issues across the internet, and not trying to put our dollars together in a pool, so that we can gradually make some community corrections, as we live from day to day. The following generation, is not in the best of position right now to help themselves, they are running around gunning down each other, there should be some kind of community attractions which we can create, in order to teach our youths, that they can be more responsible, as it relates to their own people, instead of cutting down each other, and causing disaster in both families.
Any one have any Ideas,how we can create a fund raising situation, even while we are posting on issues, in order to create some kind of prosperity among African people every where.This is an international audience of African people,
reasoning about the conditions under which we are living, so while we are reasoning, we should also be working to correct the degrading conditions, under which our people are living every day and every where. Any ideas how this can be done, and are you all willing to make contributions to your own people and your villages?
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people every where.
ONE BLACK LOVE ONE BLACK HEART
