"Inspite of what is quite a logical debate, we can see some Africans deligently disowning their own to make it comfortable for you. AND THAT IS TRUE, when a brother is saying that the effort you are making to help clear the air to other Africans are not called for."
I further said:
"You (Rootsie) have a website of articles that they can go through to see your position and not buy into the silly and slanderous exercise of taking one line out of your article to impute improper motives."
You very well know why I will defend her right. It is because, a) I agree with the view and, b) I saw her taking flack for a view that we both share. Some of the comments that were thrown here were bordering on offensive and one taken off by a Moderator was offensive. It is in light of this wicked attempt to distort and slander I see no need for her to justify her self to anyone.
As I said you are quite free to distrust and question the motives of anyone just like I but there is a line of misconduct that should not be crossed. I am standing firm because it is the very despicable conduct that was also thrown at I because I hold an African ancient Rasta view that only considers the COSMIC ESSENCE as our divine essence.
THIS IS MY EXPERIENCE.
Your quote, repeated: "we can see some Africans diligently disowning their own to make it comfortable for you. AND THAT IS TRUE, when a brother is saying that the effort you are making to help clear the air to other Africans are not called for."
If you were following my reasonings carefully, you would know that “MY OWN” are people with integrity and the issues that I raise are about defining Integrity. “MY OWN” is measured on the basis of character and stating that a White cannot legitimately lead a Black movement is not about choosing on the basis of RACE but choosing on the basis of MERIT. As I have explained countless times Whites or those that are close to Whites in color cannot have the depth of ongoing direct experiences from which to draw. In my view it is about choosing from amongst those with the most Experience. All of the issues that I raised are about determining Integrity, as that is what it takes to understand the depth of the issues.
