Modern Outlaw.I dont see the I straight.
From my perspective,most people dont come here just to post some history thing to say...damn it,I'm proud...my people were involved..damit,we shaped this situation or land country.This is more(to I)a forum where there is a conscience and morality connected balance with history where one can say 'I'm proud my ancestors did.....'.
What I mean is,if youre just posting some info about history as just a perspective of what happened,that seems fine,but to come saying that youre proud that your anscestors were 'a big part' of history for the destruction and subjugation of the west and its original peoples,then where are you coming from?Sure,it doesnt mean that they all individualistically(youre ancestors)said 'lets kill some indians' and conquer the land,but some of them definately did do those things,no?If they didnt I'm sure that they had no problems calling the posse when indians got in their way,no?
See,here doesnt seem like it is a place where you come and say 'darnit...we African American cowboys really built something'.......and thats it.What did you build?Under whose model did you build?Whose value systems did you take on?Youre proud of what specifically?
Being proud isnt about that you created somthing real big in history but whether it was RITEOUS or what aspects were riteous and what aspects were'nt.Yeah?
So we can do stuff but dont watch the tool that worketh can do,watch the one thats behind it.I am sure there are many things to be proud of,living off the land.Dont get me wrong 'country' has nothing to do with backwardness its an attittude.What makes you different from the white cowboys and some of their,backward attittudes and ways?
What is your attittude to the 'first nation peoples',as you call them?Who decided who the second nation peoples were gonna be and that its allright to have 'part two' and the plot?
Hoping you the highest and the best of all things as Jah.More life,bless...
