Well, when our villages were invaded and set on fire, and our ancestors were ambushed and captured, and shackled and whipped brutally across the middle passage, we had to leave all our possessions, since we were being kidnapped and smuggled away across the middle passage, to the western hemisphere, we were not allowed to take any of our property with us. Our land and other personal possessions, were left right there in Mama Africa. Today when we speak of Reparation and Repatriation, as well as Compensation to Mama Africa, we are talking about being restored to our original dignity, with the cost being paid by those who implemented the slave trading activities against African people, and made large profits out of it.
It is therefore, very out of order, that Europeans do try, to act as if they are not aware of what Reparation, Repatriation Compensation is all about, and they continue to downpress African people everywhere as we live from day to day. Since they did hoist there flags as a symbol of divide and rule, they took over the authority of land owership and distribution, and they then distribute our land to their mothers, sisters, brothers, uncles, friends and relatives, they were the only ones who have the say over our stolen properties.
Today the issue about land is still a great contention in Mama Africa, because they just refuse to hand over the stolen lands to African people, the rightful owners from whom it was stolen. So the struggle continues Africa for Africans those at home and those abroad. Well, there are some Europeans who claims, that they are a part of the Rastafari movement and that they are hoping to be Repatriated too, but how can they be Repatriated to Mama Africa, when they originated in Europe. Europe for the Europeans, those at home and those abroad.
If they are truly trying to correct the bad behavior of their European Ancestors, then they would get themselves some humble standing, and work closely with their own people, to convince them that they have committed crimes against African humanity, and that it is only just and fair, for them to make some very serious efforts, to make sure the needed corrections are imlemented, so that Reparation, Repatriation, and Compensation, for Africa and her people can be achieved. After this or that is achieved, then we can find some ways and means to do honest trading, as long as they will burn all their weapons, and study wars and invasions no more.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK LOVE ONE BLACK HEART
