Respect! You know I've always and will always appreciaLOVE, applaud and support your warrior spirit.
I think you also know that I agree with your words. Truth spoken. None is here to deny the FACT that our more recognizable African brothaz/sistaz are ENEMY #1 (to a white supremist world). None can deny, that historically speaking, many, if not most of our lighter skinned brothaz/sistaz have been afforded better "opportunities" (as in assimilation, which some of us view as merely a TRICK to divide the Black Family). Nowhere have I nor would I ever say otherwise. Nor would I suggest that this white supremist system doesn't "CATER" (and again, some of us overstand this "catering" to be laced with POISON, creating amnesia from one's ROOTS) to lighter skinned brothaz/sistahz. And this phenomenon is seen throughout the entire First World Nations, not only Afrika. We sight this dark/light madness in South America, among the Indigenous People there, where the lighter (more european) ones are in positions of leadership. We see this in India among the various castes and shades of color (again, brought in by Aryan divide and conquer principle). None can deny that these "mulattoes" (a racist term), whatever their shade, are given economic and social advantages, often benefiting only themselves, to the destruction of darker skinned peoples. I have never, nor will ever deny this truth. Nor could I or would I pretend to have directly walked in the shoes of my darker skinned brothaz/sistahz. Same as I couldn't pretend to have walked in the shoes of a man. But as a daughter of Africa, and mother of Africans, sister to Africans and warrior of Africa, when white supremacy throws that SPEAR, though the spear may not directly be aimed at myself, don't think for a minute that should that spear hit my father, son, brother, sister (in their various shades of brown) that I would be immune to the PAIN. A mother (light or dark) will bear fangs and claws should any one endanger her youth. She will cry the same tears should her son's blood be shed at the hands of white supremacy.
If you burn down a house with the intent to only kill one, but inadvertently kill their family, have they been spared the end result of this fire, or have ALL been directly and indirectly affected?
With all that being said and agreed upon, I still maintain that as Pan Afrikanists, we must connect with the BEST all First World Nations, be them light or dark, as long as their LOYALTIES are towards ONE GOAL ONE AIM AND ONE DESTINY, and that is to the permanent dismantling of this White Supremist World Order, and the unification and independence of ALL FIRST WORLD PEOPLES.
We cannot turn our faces from our Native American brothaz/sistaz, though their complexions may be different shades of brown/red, dark and light, who have also suffered under white supremist system, though their experiences may have been different then the African. Their wisdom and strength is also needed. The details may differ, but the greater picture is the same. Different actors, same stage/play. Same with our dark skinned East Indian brothaz/sistaz, so called Untouchables. Many may not know to claim AFRIKA, many may have straighter hair, many may have been affected by the light/dark skin tricks...who knows, but they too have suffered under a white supremist system. We have Cuban and South American gerilleros and freedom fighters, who though not directly African, have and will be needed again. Again, the details differ, but the GREATER PICTURE remains the same.
Some of us are caught up in the MATRIX and all its (skin) tricks. Others recognize it, unplug and take a bird's eye view, and REAL EYEZ, that the foundation of the EVILS of this world order boils down to this:
LIFE AGAINST ANTI LIFE. Not only Black and white, but man against woman, man against nature/creation, man against man. So many isms and schisms. So many FACTORS of white supremacy contributing to not only the destruction of the Afrikan, but to entire First World Nations. To the water we drink and the air we breathe!
I believe this was part of the meditation/realization/revelation that Malcolm had upon leaving the euro/ameriKKKan MATRIX. No he didn't become a lover of white folx. No he didn't loose his sense and duties as a Afrikan. But what he did do is realize that this BATTLE goes beyond the skin trick games played upon us. Much larger then that still. And this is what caused the BEAST to truly fear him, therefor kill him.
Hence the words of His Majesty: UNTIL THAT DAY, we Afrikans (some light like himself, most dark like most parts of Afrika) will fight for we find it necessary as we are confident in the victory of GOOD OVER EVIL.
That is the ultimate battle and victory. GOOD OVER EVIL. It goes beyond the subtleties of the physical (flesh/skin).
Truly, it is only the AFRIKAN which in uniting and freeing himself will eventually lead the rest of the First World Nations to follow suit, as the Original Mothers and Fathers. Those of us (in our various shades) who recognize and HONOR OUR MOTHER AND FATHER, and have unplugged from the Matrix, fight relentlessly to defend their integrity. And as it was in the beginning, so shall it be in the end. All of Mama Afrika's children who have lived, died, lived and died again in the struggle to mend her broken body and gather all her sons and dawtaz from the 4 corners of the earth will once again be the inheritors of this Earth, in all our various differences, shades of brown, complexities, beauty, fiyah and SOUL.
United we stand. Divided we fall.
