One of the main reason why we have to make this correction loud and clear, it is because children generally learn from their parents who are their first teacher, before they go to school, so, whatever bad habits the parents have and practice on a regular basis, the children will see them and follow and practice those same bad habits. So, the children who grow up in a so called Maroon Village, and hear the older people telling stories, about what their Ancestors did to slaves who escaped from the slave plantations, and how they beat them up and subdued them, as so called Maroon warriors, will be influenced by that kind of talk, and will be ready to brutalize their own African brothers and sisters, without a just cause, just to show off themselves as so called Maroon Warriors like their Ancestors used to do.
So, the correction must be made,it must be pointed out to the young people in the so called Maroon Villages, that what was done to the African slaves who escaped from the British slave masters were wrong, wicked and cruel, and that those kind of activities should not take place among no African people in this big wide world. And we are depending on the young people in the so called Maroon Villages to get up and lead and make this change for the beterment of our African people everywhere. Just be proud of your original African names of Coromantees, Ashanti and Akan and despise and reject the name Maroon, which was imposed unto your people by the slave masters hundreds of years before you were born. do not go around with a name which is stained by the betrayal of your own African brothers and sisters.
Maroons No No No.
Coromantees, Ashanti and Akan 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 ONE BLACK LOVE.
