What we are talking here about is an injustice which has been committed against African people everywhere for more than five hundred years, and is yet to be justified. The Europeans have committed cultural, economic, social, spiritual, mental and physical injustices against African people, at home in Mama Africa and in the lands of plantation captivies, where we have been and are still abondoned, for the past more than five hundred years.
If you are observant of history, you will also notice, that to date we have not taken any revenge against Europeans, by building slaveships, and having them loaded with weapons and shackles, and then invade Europe, and kidnapped Europeans across the middle passage, to the plantations of Mama Africa, for slave trading purposes. You can go ahead and turn the pages of history, and you will notice that we have never done that.
It appears to me that you are seeking forgiveness and reconcilations, but the lesson which you need to learn, is that there can be no reconcilations, until, until, until African people are justified, for the slave trading crimes which were committed against Mama Africa and her people everywhere.
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.
