You can say you love the black woman all you want, if that's what floats your boat, why arenít you loving one because you are so "black conscious"
I still can't believe you think I have no love for black women just because the female I'm with is not black. I had love for black women before I entered in this relationship and that has not changed one of the most beautiful black woman to wlak this planet IMO gave birth to me.
Integrationist is what I call blacks you! Have you really studied slavery and colonialism? What is your age? What is your background? It amazes me when black Rastas are pro-interracial dating white people for "love," when any black person who knows anything about history should be aware of all the pain and indignity white males/females caused to us and our ancestors. Indeed, like brother Baba Ras Marcus said, interracial couplings are great insults to our African village; it is deeply rooted in self-hatred & ignorance. IMO, a "brother" who chose a white woman over a black woman is clearly someone who is NOT going to build a strong black race!
I'm well aware of our history and would fight side by side with you against any white or any other race that still holds those veiws of us and would try and take away freedom or right to life.
I know from reading your post that you feel they all the same,I just don't share your view on that.
The ancestors are in the spirtual relm now I don't think they have the mind-set of this physical world anymore,just my opinion.
The statement about choosing a white female over a black female from my own race.I really did'nt look at it like that it's not like it was a sister standing on one side of me and a white female on the other and I ingnored the sister and walked away with the other. I don't want to tell my life story over the internet but I do respeck you and wanted to answer you question on this subject. Not every black man that's with a women of another race hates his self or black women. I know I can't make you believe me but it's true for me. I can't speak for all the others and they seem to be in hiding right now,but its does sting a little too have your blackness questioned just because of you happen to find love in a person of another color. Like I said before only Jah knows my heart.
