    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Brother Omowale shared the following link in another thread:

    Enrollment in the Cherokee Nation

    In case anyone is interested.
    http://www.african-nativeamerican.com/enrollment.htm


    Considering how we're being told (and shown) we aren't wanted in other nations, should we have our own enrollment process?

    If others can do this, why can't we?

    :heart:

    What jurisdiction does anyone have. What constitutes a Nation? What is the LAND BASE?

    There is the Republic of New Africa.

    There is the Nuwabbian Nation of Moors.

    There is the Wash[ita Nation.

    There are the Republics of Liberia and Sierra Leone.

    There is the settlement founded by Blacks known as Nova Scotia.

    Black "Nations" already exist.

    So it is not a mater of "What we CANT do"

    It is more a matter of whether or not we CHOOSE to identify with the above mentioned "Nations".

    Why not just put a bull's eye on your forehead?

    If we do such a thing on a wide scale we'd have to be very careful who has access to these records. In the hands of COINTELPRO such a list could easily be used to locate and criminalize those who challenge the power structure. Remember those boys who were arrested for talking about doing for self. Homeland security would see this as a terrorists registry and just go down the list picking people off.

    Our fight at this time must not be so visible.

    If it ain't visible, how can/will it be seen?

    :help:How does one Stand Tall enough, and Stand Proud enough, to BE a Nation if one keeps one's head down so as to not get it noticed?

    Freedom ain't cheap; ain't nobody gonna give it to us!

    What is the Freedom of an African/Black Nation worth?

    Some have shown willingness to pay the Ultimate Price, no? (Yes, I will ... but why would I bother if "others" are gonna stand around talking about "sure, we'll watch them kill you, first!"):help:

    sorry; don't mind me: back to your "religious" and "historical" discussions - one can always go to their store and use their money that one got at their jobs and continue to think that one is actually putting bread on one's table, a roof over one's head and "security" for one's children while not worrying about them storm-trooping your house because you are a good citizen and follow all of their rules.

    although i suppose i should give credit for the concept actually popping back up on the forum ... for a while ...

    I hear you brother. When I said "we", I wasn't talking about those black folks who claim they are native americans.

    Who exactly are you speaking for?
    Are you speaking on behalf of Nuwabbians who identify as a Nation?
    Are you speaking for New Afrikans who identify as a Nation?
    Are you speaking for Wa-shi'ta who identify as a Nation?
    Are you speaking for Bilalians who identify as a Nation?
    Are you speaking for the Nation of Islam?
    Are you speaking for the Nation of Moors in Ta-Meri-Ka?
    Are you speaking for AFRICAN-NativeAmericans?

    All the above are BLACK NATIONALISTS who identify with the concept of a BLACK Nation!

    I'm speaking for the masses of plain ole black folk.

    And could you do me a favor and identify the geographic boundaries of any of the nations you just listed.

    Plenty of us identify with the CONCEPT of a nation, including me as evidenced HERE..

    Why would you bother to refer me to a forum in which the majority opinion, including myself, voted YES, while you did not vote a specific response?!
