What the Yoruba call Odo Oya has it's source in Futa Jallon (in present day Guinea), the people who inhabit the length of the river, from it's source to it's delta include Fulani, Mande, Hausa, Ijaw, Yoruba and many more. Odo Oya is our river and if you are a desendant of one who was taken as captive into the amerikkkas, then it is also your river. And yes, I do have an 'us vs. them' attitude. For me 'us' is the Afrikan and 'them' is the non-Afrikan. I have no concern about the destiny of 'them' with the exceptions of the ways their plans have (and continue to) impact on the unfolding of my own destiny. Our destiny. We need to put ourselves first because in the minds of the 'whites' and semi-'whites', they have each placed themselves first.
I have stopped believing in lies about our 'common humanity' because I have realised where they see US in the heirachy of things within that bogus commonality.
As for Kemet, I would not down it because some 'white' sought to raise it high. You cannot raise what you are incapable of overstanding and if all the so called egyptologists had a thousand years of life granted to them individually, they would still not be able to grasp the most basic of the icepts by which the Kamau lived. And, I also know that the greatest portion of what is being passed off as 'ancient egypt' is nothing more than ill-conceived adaptations and blatant forgeries. What you have there now are egyptians and the egyptian is to the Kamau what an amerikkan is to the Washitaw.
I can not down Kemet because I am proud of what the Kamau achieved. However, that pride is qualified because I also know that they made some mistakes that have had a far-reaching effect. If we refuse to identify and learn from those mistakes, then we are not doing them the honour they deserve. "One who fell into a ditch, did so to teach the ones coming behind a lesson." If we refuse the lesson, then we are disrespecting the one who devised the lesson.
Wisdom and Strength.
