Brother Ras Marcus,
this is the genarilization I was referring to:
"And as a result, people who are not conscious, are always looking up to them as the greatest, and therefore in their own mind, they want to be like them or at least want to be with them."
I would not consider having relations with those of different backgrounds, as a sole determination of one consciousness. Even the most conscious amongst us have had moments when feelings of love truly cross the ethnic line. I would agree that today, or for the past 10 years for that matter, the idea of interracial mating/dating is not an option for me, howver I would not judge a man's level of consciousness on who he chooses to sleep with, but what he does for his community and people when he is awake.
"This leads to mixed racial mating which produces light color children, who are generally cared for much better than coal black children and people in general."
It is painting with a pretty wide brush to say that light color children are generally treated better in households w/other black children. I am sure this is the case in many households, however I would not agree that this is an occurence that is prevalent in an abundance of homes.
