You don't care if H.I.M was a light skinned 'multiracial' is foolish because all H.I.M. stressed was his Semitic (Arab) origin via a "Semitic pride." Haile Selaissie stressed his genealogy, or origin, to the Hebrews/Israelites with the mythic origin of the ruling house/dynasty of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba son; ie his title King of Kings, Haile Seassie /Ras Tafari I, the Lion of Judha..bla..bla..bla stuff. I said this plenty of times, the above idea is VERY RACIST to the African/the black, so to speak. But looks like you really donít care about this huh? Right Right Right...Okay.
Speaking of continental Africans itís a shame that you too are arguing over BS regarding the idea of us leading the union of Africans in the world granted, my friend, of the fact that a great portion of Africans can be said to be of the BANTU RACE (distinct "negroid" women and men). There are in fact at least 30 Bantu countries in Africa while the Ethiopians, Somalians (Djiboutians), Eastern Africans, and Arabic Africans are in fact VERY LIGHT SKINNED BLACKS WITH FROS. They truly hate being called "black" on account of their Semitic (Arab) origin. Indeed, the Semites infiltrated Africa in trickles and in waves and established themselves in the North and East Africa using the scheme of taking the African/the pure black women, while declaring the children part of the Semitic culture!
Then, if you were truly interested in healing Africans, then you would seek first, with honesty, reject the things that are wrongÖreject the light skinned/near whites (the ones who looks nothing like me), those you consider to be the African's best leadership in Ethiopia, in the Rastafari movement only to keep the Africans/the pure blacks in self-hatred! I in the other hand, when I visualize a powerful leader, I see one who looks like my father, my mother, and all my ancestors, all the way back to the first ones. I see BLACK. Which I am, a black woman!
This is an emotional subject for me and I feel pain. Iím a sista that wants and desires solely black/African men! The sad but very real question I always ask is where are the black/African men that want and desire their sista's natural with black skin and "negroid"..?? Iím not necessarily against light-skinned mullattos (multiracials) but dam...
I know blue-black Africans are not the on
