In Response To: Maroons Is A Name Of Betrayal Legacy It Is Bad (Ras Marcus)
It is not as hard as you may think, just take a real good look at your history, and see what the legacy of betrayal has done to you the following generation. How does it feel to take up a history book, and see where the Maroons have agreed to return their own African people to the wicked and cruel slave masters and their plantations, after your own people have escaped, from the brutish and cruel treatments which were being handed down to them, just because they were African people?
How do you feel to know that you were enslaved by the Spanish people for hundreds of years, and now that the Spanish people have escaped to Cuba, and you have resisted the british, because you do not wish to be enslaved by them, but you find yourselves helping the slave masters to enslave you black brothers and sisters, by returning them to the slave plantations, after they have escaped to your Villages, hoping that you would rescue them and protect them from the slave masters, how do you feel about that?
It is not difficult to make this correction, all your young people have to do is to examine the issues historically, and see how it is being connected to your younger people who are still being called Maroons, and make up your minds and reason about the effects it is having on you, and start to despise the name Maroon, reject it completely on every occasion that you get and let it spread, and teach the older people your reason for rejecting the name Maroon, then put the name Coromantees where the name Maroons used to be, let it be a on going movement for change with courage and self determination we shall over come.
Nothing tried nothing done. Maroons, NO, NO, NO.
Coromantees YES, YES, YES YES, YES, YES, YES.
Take the best care of yourselves 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.
