Julie Belafonte is a Jewish woman..white woman.
J.A Rogers married Helga Beisenthal...a white woman.
Ivan Van Sertima married Maria Nagy ... a white woman.
Paul Robeson dated Marilyn Greenberg ...a white woman.
Jomo Kenyatta married Edna Clarke...a white woman.
Frantz Fanon married Marie-Josephe Duble...a white woman.
Frederick Douglass dated Helen Pitts and Ottilie Assing...both white women.
W.E.B. Du Bois dated Dora Marbach and Amalie Lebenfeldt...both white woman.
Are these black people's contribution to the Afrikan diaspora any less significant because of this?
I dont condone it of course but you cant say that they dont know what it means to be black because of it. They were not born married/dating to a white woman.
I cant dismiss Belafonte's words about Bush and imperialist America because I do agree.
Where are the coal blue purple black Afrikans who are speaking out against Bush in this time?
