The action which Rasi took, is an exellent idea, which needs to be cultivated and be multiplied, among African people in Mama African and Africans in the Diaspora. If Rasi and others can spread this idea among African people in Mama Africa, and nourish that investment practically speaking, then those seeds will grow and bring forth good fruits.
It is well known that the leaders in Africa today, are not a united set of African liberators, instead they are just some educated politicians, who are walking in the footsteps of the former and present slave masters. They do consider the masses of the African people to be in a much lower class than them as leaders. So, they are only concerned with taking care of their friends and families just like the colonial masters have been doing for the past more than five hundred years.
However, because of their selfish and down pressive behavior, that will not prevent us from calling for land grants for African people living in the Diaspora as we live from day to day, because Africas who were brutalized across the middle passage to the western hemisphere, did left their land in Mama Africa since they could not carry land across the middle passage.
It is indeed a good sign that the President and leaders in Senegal, have suggested giving land to Africans who were born in Haiti, but it must go wider than that, Senegal and all other leaders of all African countries, must stop playing around, and become mentally and morally matured and grant land for all African people in the African Diaspora, considering that Africa is for Africans those at home and those abroad. The journey of life continues. Take the best care of yourselves and your African people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE
