In Response To: Whites and Repatriation (Ayinde)
"Since humanity was born out of Africa, should other non-black races be included in the back to Africa movement?
Should whites consider this their home as well? "
First of all I think we have to look at the goal of the "back to Africa movement"...what is it supposed to accomplish...and that would make the answer obvious...keeping in mind that people have different views of what "back to Africa" means to them...(within the same physical sense)
Historicaly both 'sides' can argue that they have right to call Africa their home...and for most of us our home is defined by the symbols that relate, remind, and concect us to our environment...and that makes us comfortable...
eg...seeing the markings of ur ancient relatives littered throughout a valley...or the knowledge of ur family being in a location for x amount of years...the markings or the knowledge itself becomes symbols...and some people feel comfortable being surrounded by these symbols to live, feel, and call it home...
yet historically...there have been wars...and even amonst blacks in Africa...eg a person from one tribe sez "hey that tribe is in our land...so we have to get it back...coz it is ours...my families own"...and u have situations like the one in the "middle east"
So InI a chek it as it is...the earth was there without us...thus the home for my Ancestors, was the home they made for themself...it was about adapting and evolving...and the mind set, and drive they have is golden for INI to posses in these times...cause that is what made the nation great...
so to conlcude...I feel that where ever u are and wherever u can be, is ur home...naturaly
a just JAH LOVE...yeh
yet right now...for any view to take action...certain laws in this world or within Africa have to be broken down...and on what basis?...without that nuttin ago change...
"a beg u Stop them JAH,
Its never too late,
Stop them JAH,
Its never too late"
