I have been thinking about this for quite some time and this may actually be the FINAL thread that I post. There are too many of US quick to call our family members "coons"..."enemies"...etc....while at the same time talking aboutt UNITY. I find this to be quite contradictory and self-defeatism in action. A lot of Black folks talk about the lack of Leadership but then participate in the character assassination of the very same Leadership that emerges. We all need to BE AWARE of who does this...HOW they do it...WHEN they do it...and then determine WHY and for WHAT purpose is this happening. Usually, there is a POLITICAL and or Spiritual agenda at work...and "forces" unseen. SOME folks come representing POLITICAL Organizations and FRONTS, then "divide" Public Opinion, while using the Community as a BASE OF RECRUITMENT. How many times has this played out at this website alone? Folks who attempt to pick the ripest "Fruit", while disrespecting the very person who "BORE" the same fruit. Months ago I posted a thread speaking how RELIGION is a dividing factor in the Black community, and I did so without attacking any particular so-called "Abarahamic" faith. However, I am now at the point where I will openly state that the GREATEST DANGER to the African continent are those promoting ISLAM and Christianity and the "proof is in the pudding". It is no accident that the ENTIRE continent is a "contested" zone with not a single "liberated" zone, the the main "contestants" for the heart and soul of Afrika are "wolves in sheeps clothes". At this point, I also want to personally thank brothers Sekhemu and I-khan for sharing a multitude of information in reference to African Traditional Religions and Spiritual systems. I am now CLEAR that this is the area in which many of US "lost The Way". Peace and One Love! brother Omowale. Thanks Sister Destee for your Love and Support.
