Repatriation Forum

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

Sure there are Black racists, as there are White racists, they are Native American racists and as there are Hispanic racists. But it's important to realize that there much more non-black racism evident in today's societies. Can you here give me an example of Black racists doing what White racists have done to our people? Rationally you can give me any example. So, I think being racist to promulgate a color caste and societal structure that subsidizes one groups' standard of living at the expense of another is far more egregious than the hostility that comes from centuries of mistreatment. I don't think there is such a thing as black racism. IMO, if there were it would be a justifiable psychological response to the racism put on Blacks for generations by other groups.

The fact remains that Native Americans, Jews, Japanese or any Holocaust survivors have been paid Reparations or Restitution. But our Western oppressor are still in denial and are very selective in its application of JUSTICE or should I say unwilling. Donít forget Black people had to die and resist against dogs & water hoses to even make our plight a current mainstream issue to be considered. Also, can you give me ANY examples of current organizations where Blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans, Arabs or whatever come together and create change in the Black communities? I do not see any coalition forming between Blacks and Hispanics or any other oppressed groups in this world. I personally have not prejudice against any people and see no problem with anyone fighting for their pride or identity in search of a better life. However, I do see that all other oppressed groups are taking advantage of the civil rights Movement that Blacks fought and died for and immediately to follow the racist Whites lead as to how they will interact with and view Black people.

Moreover, I agree with you. You don't have to be Black to seriously evolve in Black Movements in their religious aspect even included participate in their far more political organizations. In fact I know a number of White Afrocentrists that I respect and care about. But I care and respect even more Black education, Black strengthening, Black self-preservation, Black World Unity and first and foremost the TRUTH! I must be clear to you I will never trade Black inspiration for white strengthening any day because there are not laws passed to protect our social and human rights as yet. Thus, I firmly believe that forwarding obvious Truth of history and reality to individuals with different history and realities is the only way to demand our fair rights of rights and Justice. I have the faith that with inspiration and awareness, humanity can rise out of fear, hate and egoism to reach love, health, beauty and full spiritual potential, despite the animus energies of ignorant and selfish human beings.

Indeed, it would be a wonderful thing to see all the oppressed peoples unite against their oppressor, but until it ever happens, we Blacks must think of ourselves, our children's educations, strengthening our current world Black renaissance and future first and foremost. Itís also the only way to grow until the abusive White/fair skinned World's agenda is tossed aside forever.

Lastly, your point of view will be much more appreciated if your posts expressed civility and intelligence Heat_air_wata. It will be a welcome change from your usual barbs and vulgarity.
