I like Dr. Johnson. (He is a descendant of Frederick Douglass) He tells it like it t-i-z....!
Thx 4 the refresh!
In "part 3", johnson states:
"The only people in this world who are interested in integration are people without power"
He goes on to say that:
"To integrate means to integrate your political and economic strength" and "When your trying to build power for your community integration is unnecessary".
Let us suppose that the last quote is not true. That there are some who do not agree with that premise; that of compromising political/economic strength via integration.
So I ask those who may share that view: What does 'integration' means where collectives are concerned? Can [group] political/economic strength be achieved or manifest in spite of integration?
Dr Umar is opposed to interracial dating.
Then Dr. Umar should most definitely not do that.
I'm not for or against interracial dating. I know that personally i have become open minded to it, having been involved with a woman who was not of african descent. I know Dr Umar is not a fan of Africans dealing with Euros.
Could it be possible that we have a long history of what happens to us as a people with that type of arrangement? The invasions of Afraka reflect it, slavery reflected it and those in political power presently reflect it...as well as those of us with the money and so called education. Better yet, there's entire histories concerning it and the results in "Destruction of Black Civilization"...so obviously everybody and all of history can't be wrong, but then again, that's sort of been our problem as Black men. We somehow let the little head get in the way of the big head.
Yeah perhaps. I nvr really thought about interracial dating n the implications till i started talking to someone who wasn't african (She wasn't caucasian). Even as i've learned more about history, I still keep a indifferent stance on the topic. All i ever say is do ya due dillegence on ya partner, especially if she's European.
As fat n nasty as most sisters are today walking around in America, although I wouldn't do it, because I can get the baddest sisters, a brotha not as fortunate as THE-GOD, i almost can't fault him, and I'm all about Black power.
if i were the moderator you would be gone just for this statement….
