In Response To: 'A Girl Like Me' isn't what they want *LINK* (Ayinde)
Probably due to the particular mood I'm in today - (I've just re-read the original Willy Lynch speech prompted by the skin tone research thread. And now I've just come back here and read this message) - I'm starting to feel slightly depressed. (sincere feeling)
What role can we as Rastafari play in breaking this cycle? (sincere question)
What solutions have we as Rastafari people got to counter the oppression our communities face in this society? (sincere question)
Racism today no longer needs to be overt or obvious, as it is already so ingrained to be normal, (according to the skin tone research and the willie lynch program.)
How can we stop our people becoming so depressed that they give up, become passive, and therfore become part of the problem as part of the silent majority?
Your humbly. Looking for guidance & strength.
