Greetings Ras Mikel. I talk alot, so hope ur eyes dont hurt:
"As far as I know different species can't mate People of different nations can."
the Higher so called "animal" (man if u will), and the other kingdoms of life are 2 different things (however connectd @ the basic level). So i see ur poin but it doesnt belong here in my understanding.
"I think race is a man made conception"
It IS manmade, ur right.
"Your line of reasoning seems flawed when drawn out to its logical extreme.Nations are man made lines drawn out."
Nation-Nationality-Native- etc. ALL have importance to those who recognize (especially in this time) that ones should HONOR their forefathers/mothers divine creed & pronciples, which is an un-broken chain. So the BOUNDARIES which carves out the territories might be man-made, but not the oneness of principles that connects man & man to their ancestors.
"Do you take issue with marriage between people of different tribe?,between nations of similar color?between different faiths?"
When u say "Marriage"; besides the re-uniting of the male & female, the other importance is the UNDERSTANDING of the PRINCIPLES which molded that tribe in their knowledge of life. And the RESPECT to theor ancestors. PRINCIPLES are what holds tribes together, and sumtimes for this reasob or that, some marry into others without knowing the ideas that the people hold dear to them. So, its not the marriage of one tribe 2 another that i have a problem with, its the PRINCIPLES of that particular tribe that one should honor with all their heart.
Nations of similar color? Its the PRINCIPLES that matter FIRST. And like i said, i donot condone the marriage of the so called african and european nations. FAITH? I prefer 2 stay under my own vine & fig tree in the long-run, cuz my knwoeldge of my "faith" is in ALL of my actions.
"Anyway Whatever You practice in your own life in regards to a mate ,I dont feel it is right to judge or disrespect the struggles of bi racial peoples of the world."
Please show me where i "dis-respected" the "struggles" of "bi-racial" people please, cuz i cant remember that i did. For a young man i forget alot.
"To speak as if you know what Jah had in mind for the world it not reality.InI dont know what The exact nature of Jah is or if him/her even "thinks' anything."
LOL (dont know if u understand internet language?) PLEASE speak for yourself, becuz i feel sorry for you if you dont know what "jah had in mind" 4 the world, and even worst, if he or she even thinks!? YOUR "reality" is NOT my reality...and thats the reality of this. You dont seem 2 sure about Jah. The difference between u & me brutha man (and im not dis-respecting u @ all!) is that what i practice, i can trace back to those "man-made" males & females who were the FIRST to say "know thy self"...verbatim by verbatim. Im preety sure i know who Jah is....trust me.
"I man sight the manifestation of the force of Jah in the person of Haile I Selassie but at the same time I see Jah as creative AND destructive energy and omnipresent in ALL things and races.All matter and space."
So if that energy is in Emperor Haile Selassie and creates & destroys ( the LOGOS by the way:), it is also in you as well. It is "omnipresent" in all things indeed, to somethings in a LESSER degree and to some in a HIGHER. All in All it is here, there and everywhere. Different manifestations/aspects happen in different places in the cosmos and migh be of the SAME SOURCE but NOT the same effect.
"If two people of different nation meet and connect on that higher level and seek union to further and grow and live in love .It is not for I ,to bring in my pollitics about things or to judgement. The strong black family is very important AND InI still strive for the day when the earth n people are healed and we can truly live as one .Selassie ordained it , so it must come to pass."
Okay thats cool, but should i bring out the teachings of the RIGHT EXCELLENT Marcus Mosiah Garvey concerning sticking with ur own? or is his teachings at variance with H.I.M? Everyone under their OWN vine and fig-tree is MY WAY of obtaining peace in this world for everyone tried plans but it failed. Marcus Garveys is the ONLY one i see that will work when truly applied. Peace & Love
