"Today in this image centered enviorment, where images teach, bring news to, as well as entertain the youth and most of the massive in general. imo, it becomes imperative that anyone spearheading an afrikan work, envoling large audiences, media , speeches kwk, kwk., be of the blackest black in an effort to reach the youth with the most positive of images. youth don't have to be taught to love whites or lights, they do that already, they must be taught to love themselves, beyond the bling to the marrow."
Give thanks for your response.
I would ask what does that say for ones like Malcolm X who was not a blue black icon for black people?
His dad was a dark Garveyites and his mother was very light.
Do we dismiss him?
Throw the baby out with the bath water?
I have no problem promoting dark skin afrikans to lead black liberation movements.
But we will have to throw out the likes of Malcolm, Mumia, black panther party, MOVE, and many other people who fight against babylon in America.
So to say that they are unfit to lead merely because of their brown skin is unfair and disraspectful to these Afrikan liberators who even gave their lives to the struggle.
