You said: ď 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. ď
* You and others............. I donít like the way you reason.
When a black African person opens the door of Black Nationalism and experience a boost in their self-esteem, why do you have to accuse them of being "Willie Lynchists" ??? People need to feel important. Youíll see white people representing their power and prestige to us with much consideration for their race, their white chicks in videos, etcÖ When a proud black African person does the same thingÖyeah, got to be Willy Lynchism ! Well, I said this comment is ignorance and self-hatred. You seem to be more concerned that interracial people still take advantage of a more privilege lifestyle, because we can't forget more biracial light skinned women are seen as "trophy," like the white females.
However, black conscious, as children of interracial relationships, itís easier to behave as an integrationist. They are encouraged to open their door and welcome white friends. Their parents donít believe in Black Nationalism or black activism because they are too busy trying to forget they are black. Honestly, I will say this many times. I donít like the interracial system ! I think itís logic pure black individuals confine in Black Nationalism, and see they have too much to lose and little gain by choosing interracial relationship option.
Besides, this is an intra-race preference the Great Marcus Garvey believed, and I believe too itís going to help the entire black family out. I am not seeking approval by you. When you are a mixed raced person who feels cheated and overlooked and angry there is anything particular I can do for you. I donít see a problem with self-esteem ! I will always support "Black on Black love ďconcept.
