Re: White Rastas, what r your feelings on this?

If you live in America (I think you do), you are perfectly aware that the ultimate preference goes to those who are fair skinned, and of the "landed elite". However, if you are dark pigmented, and deprived, you are continually oppressed in every way imaginable: legally, socially, culturally, religiously, philosophically, economically etc. The fact that you are both Native American and Hispanic (we therefore all have the same wants and needs for justice) is what should serves you to helps empower Black men and women more efficiently. Native American wants their rights to be respected. Hispanics want their rights to be respected, Black people we also want our rights to be respected!! Yet Native Americans or Hispanics disregard and disrespect Blacks (not all of them are like that but a good number of them are). I am saying this because I have roamed a couple of other minorities' message boards and a good number of their remarks are negative remarks towards Black people. I can say from attentive observation that some of them would do well with the White racist/xenophobe groups. Just take a conscientious look on how Blacks are being treated in Mexico, Central and Latin America and you will realize whatís is going on. Further, similar to Native Americans donít vote like Black people vote. They are not as liberals as Black people are. They are profoundly conservative Nationalists, help first and foremost their own people by supporting financial support where need be! Thatís why it's so easy for them to start a business. If a Native American, a Hispanic, an Anglo or anyone for that matter can't respect me then how am I suppose to respect them? So, much for a colorblind globe but I ask frankly should I let people pee on me and tell me itís raining?? I have always looked for good judgment and sound philanthropy from non-Blacks, but my life experience is proving, we Blacks will never get anything beyond non-Black patronizing rhetoric. So, you can quit with the colorblind pretense.

Moreover, comparing Blacks with Native Americans is an obviously flawed argument. NATIVE AMERICANS GOT REPARATIONS FOR THEIR PLIGHT. They are in constant negotiations. They have received restitution for their persecution (genocide), for slave labor, enough cash for not only survivors but for humanitarian aid and the like. It did not require successive generations to try to make their plight a palatable "mainstream" issue. The Black (American) plight and the Native American one are in no wise comparable in that respect. But somehow when facing the issue of Black man and woman that are descendant of Black men and women that were enslaved murdered, raped, killed and abused and progress as defined by Blacks..we get the LET'S MOVE ON signal! How can a minority person who experiences somehow the continuing deleterious effect of White privilege reject any Black person autonomy, strength and power? Why then a pro-black Nationalist person like me should assume the majority of non-Black folk have an agenda/plan for the uplift of our people? I, for one, would wholeheartedly agree that you have Black communities interest at heart if I see you tackle the topics of race, education, health care, drugs, jobs, housing etc. relevant to Black 'issues. But you continue to reject discussions on these questions. So, there is a bit of hypocrisy that I sense in your words that I do not agree to Heat_air_wata . Until you non-Blacks refuse to acknowledge these issues in terms of their worth to Black people. No sane Black Afrocentric person should take you seriously. I'm old school on this.
