Excellent post Idren. I was going to post something similiar. I see so much bickering about "Negroid" Afrika vs. Semetic Afrika, Kemetic vs. Judaic, Pert em heru vs holy bible, etc, etc.
These are all willie lynchisms. Rastafarians have to include the whole of Afrika and not just a romanticized version of Ethiopia. Continental Afrikans must realeyes that diasporic Afrikans are still Afrikans and brothers in the struggle for Afrikan liberation and freedom from colonial rule...mental and physical.
We always fussing about white people causing dissent among the ranks. We have plenty of blacks...blue-black, as well as caramel blacks, who are causing much dissent.
There is nothing wrong with asking questions because I think some need to be asked. A humble response is all that is needed though. InI have to learn to agree to disagree. There is nothing wrong with that.
What InI dont need is so many mental masturbations.
I thought InI are here to bridge gaps...not add more divide.
Do we all really want Inity or not?
