The underlying issue, I believe, is that some black people are afraid of white people. Some of you people are afraid of white or anything that looks white.
Your too insecure to be black around people that might reject you. You insulate yourselves into little illusory worlds of black consciousness/power. Real black power can exist under any circumstances and this is something that a lot of you are not able to pull off. A lot of you might have followed RasTafari longer, but I've been black under a lot more opposition than any of you ever have. Therein lies the problem.
If your blackness is so insecure that you can only be black around people that you deem black, which is the case, you all need to go back and rethink your blackness. It's built on a very shaky foundation.
Maybe that is one advantage that we have in the USA and believe me, there are not many. We had to be black around opposition. That is why I appreciate ALL black people. Think about that.
