GLORY BE TO THE POWER OF THE HOLA TRINITY, EMPEROR HAILE SELLASSIE 1/EMPRESS MANEN.
I am so persistent; it is almost a shame. But I must admit that this reasoning is really calling for clarity. It is true that many of INI come from different standpoints but the fact that some of us insist on carrying on this topic, I truly trust that there is merit for further reasoning.
Rootswoman, the fact that you( and others in your camp-for gualifying) continue to bring in INI Majesties as a point in your contribution, it doesnt seem that you realise that we are not fighting the paler ones because they are pale.
The idea is to bring out the weak points of such a reality in order for the collective to gain guidance in the HEALING technique.
Not because INI Majesties are paler should we not look at the PREDICAMENT of what slavery has done to this section of Africa...post slavery africa.
It is because of two particular motives( coming to mind now) of the slavers that INI are in the west struggling with this particular outcome of slavery..
2.loyality on the plantation; along with the super blacks who were successfully lynched.
The middle class is brought to mind too.
Regardless of how INI Majesties happen to be paler and wealthier, the point of separation now is that INI Majesties are not products of western slavery.
The paler Africans in the west are direct products of slavery. Reality yes?!
And INI are sensitive to the motives and outcome of the system of the beast which is ONE OF THE TASKS of the liberation movement.
Our present reality shows that the assimilation process has destroyed the relationship among africans as a whole.
Quite apart from the preferential treatment of the whiteman's system, there is need to address the issue at hand with openness and avoid bad blood.It calls for the effort to examine our behaviour in the system and our behaviour among the African communities.
So while we should benefit from the priviledges
because of the fall of man and sometimes through accident of nature, our duty is to correct the wrongs. INI Majesties didnt have to correct this negative impact as much as we on the west, since we are the victims and not HSI.
One poster called me "idiot" and while it hurt I purposely did not take it personally. I realised my presense was disturbing this individual. In an effort to handle my maturity, I simply asked him to skip my posts.
In the medium term it came out better for my conscience; instead of trying to bring him down I walked away from him.
Another empress icept said that I am a white woman and that she knows me personally.
Lastly many posters tried to insinuate that I am emotionally drained( for whatever stories that can circulate) but that doesnt cover the need to take care of issues that affect the collective.
IT IS TIME to AVOID BRINGING IN INI MAJESTIES INTO THIS HOUSE CLEANING IN THE WEST.
WHEN INI LOOKED TOWARDS THE EAST FOR THE KING, THE IDEA WAS NOT TO USE HIM TO COVER THE MESS.
HE IS USING INI TO CLEAN UP THE MESS.
LET INI CLEAN UP THE MESS....
1. I agree that the yardstick for leadership should not be based ONLY on the tone of skin but mostly on the content of character.
2. while there are potential black leaders who must come up to par with their content of character, the colour doesnt determine their behaviour in this present scenario. If so, it is out of discrimination.
Out of this personality disfiguration, the portrayal of an inferiority complex is generally the strongest and saddest outcome of all.
3.On the other hand, the paler usually has an superiority complex.useless and retrograde complexes.
Life has taught INI that these two traits are always serious hurdles among concious Africans.
Even worse among those that are not concious of
Therefore, for the sake of moving on, let INI all agree that another task for INI in the west is character building and that one outcome that has proven a challenge for INI on this forum is the harshness of objectively handling this as a collective.
If I belong to this family, allow me some space to dare tell my sister to straighten her sheet and hope that my sister wont chasitse me for that.If she does, as an older sister, I'll try to use my discretion to find another way to have this sheet straighten. So I persist....
I much prefere to hope that my sister can trust me enough to realise that I mean well.
I know of the "damaged" mothers who would put the hands of their sons in fire on beig caught stealing.
Later on these same sons would go out and boast that if that hand wasnt burnt, they would never stop stealing.
Now while they will for ever inwardly hate their mothers for such pain, they remain grateful for not being theives.
RasTafari has taken away the pain because INI trust all RasTafari experiences while we strive towards a free Africa and a free world.
