    A piece from the film "The Motherland"....and a very very interesting take and explanation.....makes one think what the hell we been consuming this europeanized monagamous self-destructive behavior for, and then wonder why we in the state we in.....just listen to how the sister breaks it down, this is for those that are seriously about repairing and rising the community, along with building a nation, and not just talk......:em3700:

    Could this be the medicine thats needed?

    I mean she stated something critical in that piece..she said that when a man has more than one wife, that that obviously brings with it more children, and they are intricately connected into a big family structure, which brings in more labor,and wealth that is circulated and passed down, and in that end, it builds up and strengthens families, children never being negated or raised alone or by themselves, and also builds a black nation in the end with all this combined.......wow!

    I had thought about it on the surface before, but i just now thought of it like that, and that seems really like a viable solution and very productive in the end,for everyone, women,children, and the family as a whole in the black community, building and putting together larger families, therefore creating better atmospheres for our babies, and creating and circulating more wealth into the community by keeping it in the family and therefore in the community strengthening it as a whole.......:thinking:

    I always see the polygamy debate but I've never quite understood it. it seems
    to me that the folks that are for it should do it.. and the folks that are not,
    should do something else. But if we're talking about state support, then it
    will never happen.. but there are ways around that.. if you look at the support
    they are lending homosexuals right now.. a man with 3 wives can only have
    1 recognized by the state but they can still formulate their own legally binding
    arrangements through contract law. They can't be married but they can bind
    themselves to one another financially. They can put everyone's name on the
    marital property.. they can all contribute to some kind of trust fund for the
    children.. someone can stay home while the other three work.. and because
    they have 3 or 4 incomes they can work lesser jobs and have more time together.. I could see that kind of thing working.. it would take the right
    combination of personalities though.. and in todays world with todays options,
    I think he pickings would be slim.

    About the video. I do think that the speaker has lost site of the fact that
    polygamy was also an economic thing.. women that have choices seldom
    choose to be one of many.. why would they? unless of course they had
    no way to live.. to eat. In a small village of 70 or 80 people what happens
    when their are no eligible single men for the women? in a society without
    highways and easy connections between populations.. what could they do?
    I think that those are the kinds of issues that gave way to Polygamy.. not
    just in Africa but all over the world. It comes across to me as a really really
    local kind of cultural thing. It's not like a high-level government decision
    that was debated.. but more like something that just happens. And if it
    were to come back into fashion today, I think it would be a local thing too..
    I don't think you could expect any real acceptance from the government.

    Truth is, a dude with a 2 baby-mamas that he's still seeing and a girl
    on the side is practicing already in a polygamous relationship.. and thats
    not even including the baby-mama's other boyfriends..

    Chinelo,

    man.. you better stop scaring them white folks with all that.. but, come to think
    of it.. that might be just what the economy needs.. more kids mean more
    teachers.. and cops.. and judges.. and prison guards.. and prison contracts..
    and food for the prisoners.. etc.. they just might support your idea.. you
    might be on Ellen tomorrow.. lol..

    but seriously.. that is how you build a nation.. and through cooperative
    economics you can buy your way to freedom.. buy large swaths of land,
    build it out.. create your own communities.. the only problem is the opposition..
    and what kind of nation can you really build without the power to defend it?

    If we don't have strength then we have to rely on cunning. We'd have to
    find a way to stay under the radar.. maybe in another
    country.. outside of the white world. Somewhere in Asia.. That would be
    wild.. A bunch of Africans setting up shop in China or Japan..taking over
    Chinese basketball and track..

    that's what they say, but they keep on taking Raheem back don't they?

    Anyway.. as an idea, I think we're talking about willing participants.. so
    anyone who is not having it is not really relevant right?

    Polygamy is a viable way of life. Just don't have any expectations of success in that lifestyle with westernized women. Westernized women are much more comfortable with "girlfriend" status.

    I wanna see "men" support some nation building stuff that doesn't overwhelmingly benefit them...
    Why not adopt a black child since so many are in the system?
    Or marry a woman who has kids?
    Pure selfishness...

    but I do wonder, were blk/african men this selfish and sexist before colonism, is it something they picked up from whitey or is it some y-chromosome thing?

    as opposed to wife #5, who only gets to see her husband on Tuesday? child please!

    and that's the good thing about "the west" you're always free to leave or get a mail order bride. which ever is cheaper, I guess...
