GIVING THANKS TO JAH RASTAFARI.
The debate can be productive as long as we aim at being.
The colour reality can open up once the responsiblity is first to strongly justify this outcry.
I tend to agree with you Bantu that some posters chose to reject this topic. However, it is advisible to allow ones to state their case with enough respect for the opposition to at least ponder on the points that are brought out. So while INI agree with this colour reality, there are those who should allow views to be stated as long as it is legit from a point of personal and historical base.
Rootka, INI pray that while you will oppose this issue FROM your base, allow those who have their base/perspective to deliberate for the sake of the same liberty that you cherish for yourself. For peace sake if the discussion becomes too heavy for your intake, INI will in iration ask you to skip the thread and deal with issues that appeal to you.
So whereas I will not always get along with Bantu and the board, there are indeed issues that they bring out that MUST be taken in ernesty.
For some of INI the colour issue is becoming complex enough to warrant some indulgence.
However, Bantu, the approach to the colour issue must be more wisely handled since in the long run, the reality of us the raped who came out pale, paler and palest; dark, darker and darkest and who will forever be accountable to the Great Creator and embraced by Mother Earth remains
what must be confronted in wisdom and love and of course some amount of judgement. A judgement that doesnt make way for condemnation or redemption.
Let INI just try to be OPEN AND SUBTLE in the thought process.
AFRICA MUST BE FREE
