B.K. might be come off as a little unforgiving, but she has good reason. I am sure she isn't out there committing genocide or infanticide, like the "Whites" you are so willing to defend. She was not the one who invented the premise of "White Supremacy." and she is correct in questioning the actions of "Black Rastafarian Brothers" because she sees a conflict, like I do, between their "Pro-African" ideology and their behavior.
You question her personal references, well her miniature universe is part of the greater Universe and thus completely relevant. For her universe shapes her and her interactions with others. It is also completely understandable why she instinctively wants to mold her universe into a shape that reflects herself and her vision. We all are endowed with that power.
A mixed child has a much better shot at having African sensibilities if it is the product of a self-identified African mother and non-African father. There are exceptions to the rule, like societies where the woman is completely subjugated. However, as Westerners, we know that a "Mr. Mom" is an anomaly, not to mention the fact that it goes against nature.
This humble opinion is based on my experiences and observations in my miniature universe.
