Be it know, that if you are anyone, decide to reduce yourself, to the out of order level, of being disrespectful, I would egnore your disrespectful behavior, and I would still respond to you, or any other person, in a respectful way, in order to try to lift you or any other, from your disrespectful ways, to the better ways of being respectful.
As for the black and white issue, since what we call black in the western world, will definately be called some thing else in other languages of the world, I am not much concerned about that, for instance, in Kiswahili, the word for black is Weusi, and I am certain that in Chinese, they would also have a different word for black, and white, but you are free to hold your opinion, I will not try to take it away from you, but for the purpose of communication, I will still use the words black and white, since there are so many words, which we can use world wide, to describe people. I have come across Africans, who are as black as fire coal, and also Africans who are as brown as chocolate. We can use terms like, Indians, Africans, Chinese, Europeans., Japanese etc, but the most important thing in all of this, is for us to be able to communicate with each other as we reason. 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.
Baba Ras Marcus.
