To tell you the truth, the people who actually did the betrayal like Captain Codjoe and Captain Davy and their followers, are long dead and gone for hundreds of years, but every history book which you read about the so called Maroons, their vicious behavior against their own African people comes upon the pages, and since the name Maroon is a name which was imposed upon those African people by their Spanish and British slave masters, then the following generation of African people, should make the correction and restore themselves, to their original names which they had, before they were kidnapped across the Middle Passage, to the slave plantations of the western hemisphere.
The following generation should make an effort to clean up the whole situation like how the British Gold Coast was changed to Ghana in 1957, and German Tanganika was change to Tanzania, and Rodeshia was changed to Zimbabwe, and so many African countries which had European names, were changed to African names as the years went by. As for forgiveness, they are already forgiven, it is just for them to forgive themselves and be proud of their original African names, which they had before the name Maroon was imposed upon them by the European slave masters.
When he was getting off the phone he did make a threat that he may come and kiil off everybody, but since he is not in charge of Heat Air and Water, he can say whatever he wants to say. In the mean time we should still try to upold the dignity of our African race Maroon No No No.
Coromantee, Akan, Ashanti Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes.
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 0NE BLACK LOVE.
