In Response To: Re: Specific Project! (Ras C. Liontree)
peace and hotep,
ras christopher liontree, thanks for your efforts and your meaningful pursuits.
one question please. when you mention things like "black men finding their root...Africa" and "my African Empress and two daughters" but then you denigrate yourself by exclaiming "Though many burn fire on a white man chanting Niyabinghi Ises", why would a pan-africanist such as yourself cling onto labels of 'white'ness attached to you by others?
ras christopher liontree, you know that your family is an african family. you know that the labeling of 'black' is a reaction to 'white' power or naked aggression. only 'white' people will hate you if give up their system of classification. non'white' ones will appreciate your sincerity.
i constantly harp on this point because i know that at one point in western history, CAUCASIANS did not refer to themselves as 'white', so the calling of one selves in reference or reverence to 'white'ness is the main act of what you know as white privilage(internalized oppression system). ex: "most were white and we got into reasoning on white priviledge".
ras christopher liontree, when you state:
"...interviews I have held from Jamaica to Ghana to Ethiopia that delve into white supremacy as well as positive black supremacy",
please remember that 'black supremacy' is a misnomer. there has never been a non'white' pursuit of "notions of chosenness" which has put huemanity on the brink of self(atomic) destruction. i can not name one black supremacist.
ras christopher liontree, i certainly will not spit fire on your union everyone needs love for the right reasons and stay rooted in africa.
i beg you pardon but i have one more question. when you do slide shows on slave castles is it necessary to differentiate between captives and slaves? because the peculiar institution took the children of enslaved africans and held the children captives for crimes we did not commit. most white supremacist refer to the descendants of african slaves as 'amorican slaves' when they were obviously not a war or indentured.
