I said nothing about African-Americans trying to make themselves seem more important than others. I am merely talking about labels... Your assessment underlines your agenda, do not include me in this. I merely speak to us focusing our energies on us, only for awhile.... and "X" is correct, why bring whatever happened on another thread here?

We have a right and duty not to agree on everything; we have to, it too is an integral part of us doing the business that we have to do as a people. Just because my stance on something is different than theirs, it does not mean that I feel that they are any less my brother or sister.... however, they too, have to judge me, and that is their right too.

I conclude I am not African; but African is a part of my heritage, no matter how I feel about the people, my blood runs from them; I like most native Blacks have White blood that is running in my veins too, and I would never call myself White either.

Everyone has a right to consider and call themselves whatever they want; as long as they are in the struggle and want us to get to where we belong, they can call themselves "Grape Ape," for all I care.

OOh OOh please, me, me.
Go head Destee wit yow bad self.
I could cry.

Dont ya know, i've been on another
Forum that i regularly post at (Its really my home,lets sees how yall do fa me here)
and the topic that has been going on for two
weeks is this one.
I guess its in the air,i could talk ya 2 def
about this one but ima keep it short.(If i can)
A few things
As we have no control over or any affiliation or never have had with any president or
Authoritive power in the USA we must limit
our attachment, for there will come
a time as did come a time in Sodom when we
will be given the means to leave.
(you's aint got no passport do you's).

When a man and nation so drunk on
power ignores all wisdom that the natives
shares and continues to perpetuate a self
destructive wave across the land as a
STRATEGY,
it can only come to one thing.
Do not let ideals become your motivation.
America is less than 600 years old and has
ran before it crawled,
EMPIRES take centuries to build.
The problem lies in our
short sitedness due to our quantitative life span.
There is an art to building an empire and
rules to life

QUICK IS SHORT LIVED!

WISDOM

In effect what im saying is
for black people
PATRIOTISM is Idealism and
America is getting more desperate
seeking what she has consumed
too quickly in foreign lands.
(You get me?)

Africa has EVERYTHING needed to
sustain the world.

WHY NOT KEEP HOLD OF YOUR GIFT?

If that aint the whole riddle to slavery
then I dont know.

Incidentaly

WHOLE LIE WOOD.. sorry Hollywood
Points towards NewYork like
it has an Agenda to
throw all the lost souls
in for a final bite of







THE APPLE.




As dead pres said
How can you be the Master and the Slave
at the same time.

@Earl

YOU SAID
"Sure whites bought us here in chains, but, you need to wake up and realise your fellow Africans helped em. It was a way of getting rid of your enemies. There is still slavery in Africa today. Besides, Africans are coming to America on their own now."

Aint that story a little tired,in effect what your stating has already seperated yowself from being an African.

Listen to your thoughts bru.

Let me clear up this cliche saying.

Slavery occured amongst
US A f r i c a n s
(thats /us/ not U.S.)
many years before
White slavery (different thing)

SHOO, i'd a had slaves too.
Slaves were the compassionate option from
God to deal with the negative of the village.
If a man rapes, say, your daughter or wife,
you have the option to put him to death
or enslave him,he becomes your permanent
employee (for free) all you gotta do is feed
shelter and clothe him, thats it.


NOW
What a surprise to see them being
branded,
raped, starved and killed.
Who ya thinks capable of such hatred?

THEY reinvented the whole thing.

OKAY
now thats cleared up.

"NOBODY EVER SAY THAT OLD TIRED
STATEMENT AGAIN."

We need to get off this Af Am pride
cos there aint nothing to be proud of
slipping further away from our culture.
Look what we're becomin.

@FORUM

Let me ask you what do you know about
Africa, as it makes up half your name?
then ask yourself the same about America
and what contribution do you
give to America
As opposed to AFRICA?

This ends the debate

Nah ma black Peoples,
Yowl American
not African American, AMERICAN American.
That was the trick in the first place.
No man can be two things (Ya get confused end up doing lowly things
in the name of one side, contradicting the other as we've seen)
Its like being bisexual it dont work,thats a sexual title for
A FREAK.

IM AN AFRICAN and I dont need
an AFRICANS APPROVAL TO KNOW IT!

I FEEL IT IN MA SOUL.


As Lot said to his Adorable wife

"YA COMIN OR STAYIN?"

Stayin?

"AIIGHT PEEEEAACE"

I disown American because "Black people" had to fight to be american and we are still not as equal as "americans r supposed to be. No one else add american to who they are so why should I?If I could have been born and raised in Afrika I would hav preferred it. America is where I live Physically but Afrika is in my heart, my spirit and my history. Nothing about america is apart of my history accept for slavery and though I acknowledge it The his story from that is even a lie. So why accpet I'm american when America is a lie.
