Well, the mind of humanity along with their self determination to do good, is the most powerful vibration which I have ever experience, upon the face ofthis earth. Mahatma Gandi, can be used as a point of reference. He decided that England had no right to have been enslaving his own Indian people, for all those many decades, and therefore he was going to put a stopage to it. So, he started to agitate knowing that they were going to come after him, but he was determined to die for the right cause, or live to see his people free, and so, he fasted and and cultivated his self determination, and they tried every punishment which they could think of, but he made the sacrifice, for the freedom of his people, and bring the whole world down on them, for their wickedness, and they had to get our of India and leave the Indian people, to take of their own affairs.
Now Jim Crow Laws, in the USA, discriminated against black people, black people are described in their constitution, as 3/5 of a human being, and so, we were not allowed to have good schools, and the schools which were well care for, were only for white people, there were drinking water pipes, which were separated, for blacks as well as whites, the white people could drink from those pipes which were for blacks, but the black people, could not drink from those pipes, which were for whites. A black person taking a bus, would pay his fare at the front door, but had to get of the bus, and walk to the back door to get back on the bus, but the white person pay his or her fare, at the front door, and walk right on into the bus. There was so many things which were wrongly done against black people in USA, but Martin Luther King and his brethren and sistren, including school children, change most of all that, without shedding their blood, and today Barack Obama, is President of the United States of America. There is much more but this will serve for now. The journey of life continues. 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.
