It is just church and state, the church and the state are the same thing, when they downpress the people and imprison them, the church go to the prison trying to get them to become a part of religious section of the downpression, but after praying and influencing that brother or sister to become a part of the church, that Pastor black or white, get into their cars and leave those people to be shackled and be placed back into the slavery camp, for that is really what prison is. When I was a small boy they used to call it wuk house or work house.
The point which I am trying to make, is that the church and the state is the same downpressive organization with two departments, but the same goals, and that is to decieve and downpress the people. They lie to people about going up to heaven when they die, when in fact is that none of them have ever been there. The church was also busy on the slavery plantations preaching to the slaves but not telling the slave masters to set them free, since they were considered to be property like an horse, sheep, cow or goat.
Please do not forget that there were the house slave and the field slave, the house slaves were the informers who work in the slave masters house and who consider that they was in a great position, they therefore, think that they were above the field slaves, and were very close to the slave masters like the so called Maroons, they are the ones who would be given the whip to whip another slave who escaped and were taken back by the s slave catcher.
The same book which I told you about said that the English slave masters and so called Maroons became real good friends, while other African people were being enslaved on the slave plantations. I imagine that if the so called Maroons were invited to church by their slave masters friends, they would probably go, since a friend is a friend, by they would not be able to sit in the same area where their friends would be sitting. Any way, I do hope, that the youths in Maroon communities, will be bold and couragious enough to start greeting each other as Coromantee, Ahanti and Akan brothers and sisters, today, so that this shameful and disgreaceful part of our Aferican history, can be corrected and be despiced and be rejected in the future. Maroon No No No.
Coromantees, Ashanti, 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.
