I ask a few questions and because you have no CREDIBLE answers, I must be holding resentment? Why not just say it? "You ungrateful n****r!" That is what you mean to say yes? Sorry if I'm presuming to read your mind again, but, you just read mine (or something).
You claim to love Africa, let me ask you this, what version of Africa is it that you love? I bet you will now say "some of my best friends are Africans. From all over. With biiiig lips."
And for the record, it is not Haile Selassie or the Amhara that I am suspicious of, it is unkkkle toms whose motives for elevating what is derived over the authentic that I suspect. What is YOUR agenda? Are you bi-racial or is that you have bi-racial children? Is all this fire because you are afraid for thier legacy? Are you one who has "Fear of a Black Planet"?
You claim to be okay with Africans worshipping as they like, but what you mean is "worship as you like as long as you know that my beLIEfs sit at the top of the table."
In fact, if you KNEW anything about the way Africans not yet corrupted by the 'semitic' versions worshipped, you would know that we are very open to a multiplicity of methods. Unlike the semite, we do not think that we made God and we do not seek to re-make God in the image of man with all the flaws of man (i.e. jealousy, arrogance, and bone-headedness). I go to church, the mosque and whatever temple of worship I am invited to. I am open to the truth in any shape or form, but, I hold on to my roots because without roots, like someone recently said, "you are not a tree, you are a plank of wood."
