If you do not have order in what ever you are doing, then there will be out of orderness all the way. Most people in this world today, try to ignore the npble principle of Vine and Fig Tree originality. Instead of taking a good look at the original place from whence our people originated, they try to make it look like, the place where you were born, is the place where you are supposed to be name after. So, under their assumption, if a person is born in Jamaica, regardless of his race or blood stock, he is called a Jamaican, simple because he or she was born in Jamaica. They refuse to use the term African born in Jamaica, or African born in Trinidad or whatever the term should really be. So, the Africans in Africa, who were indoctrinated by the Europeans, think that although you are a black person, and your blood stock is of the African blood line, but because you were not born in Africa, you are not African. So, you are labeled according to where you were born, in my opinion, birth place has nothing to mdo with the place of your origin. There is a place called international waters, which is way out in the Sea, which does not belong to any country, so, if some one was born on a plane as it fly's over international waters, or on a ship, while they were in international waters, how would they know what race that person belongs to, they would have to name the person according to the racial origin of his or her parents. 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.
