To gain respect you must share what is revealed to you with your people. We generally never eat the fruit while it is still growing on the tree, we pick the fruit when they are matured and then we eat them. So, you should explain what you mean to the brother and do not leave him hanging.
Strange things happens in life, a person can be cooking his or her vegetable soup,and he just step away for a minute to get his seasoning, and a spider, a fly of mosquito could fall into your pot of soup, and you throw in your seasoning not even knowing what took place, so you cover up your pot to simmer down, and later enjoyed your soup not knowing that you are enjoying a insect in your soup.
Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
