    some express concern about black people in inter racial relationships and marriage.
    some say that you cannot be pro black while married to a non black person.
    how can you criticize a blackman for dating outside his race when you worship outside your race?

    i wonder if you can be pro black while worshiping another race. a jew. an arab. an asian.
    i think a blackman should not worship another man.
    i think your god best look like you.

    My Elder, my Brother - I love and respect you.

    This is on point, I thank you for bringing it to the table again and again and AGAIN.

    I personally believe that religion is a deification of ones nationality, that is WHY christianity, islam, judaism, hinduism and so forth does not belong to us Afrikans.

    We need to go back to our own religions or re-create ourselves with divine and godly images that look and respond to our predicament. We need to deify our IDENTITY, not arab, not caucasian, not jew and not hebrew - but Afrikan.

    Wake up fam, we don't speak hebrew, we don't speak aramaic and we don't speak arabic unless in the trade or slave zones with them peoples.

    So... how come God speaks a language we don't? Where are our prophets? Where is the son of our God? Where is OUR holy book passed down from the Most High?

    Don't tell me God sent his so called son to the planet and decided not tot tell us until he sent the white man our way with ships and whips? That's a wicked God.

    Come on now...

    James, nuff respect to you. Been having love for you since the days I used to stalk these boards. Always had me laughing.

    One.

    - Ikoro

    and ps.: I'm with you on that interracial thing too, don't make no sense. Displaced peoples...

    this is not rocket science

    to be "pro" something means you promote it

    so i don't see how you can give your reality to a white or other person

    and still say "well i'm pro black"

    to me your denying your own blackness at that point IMO

    though i think you can still PROMOTE black people without being

    PRO-black so to speak

    but i think it takes away from that because if you were pro black

    you would do all you need to do to make that a reality - PROMOTING

    BLACKNESS

    What does your race have to do with you worshiping God ? God has no race.

    i don't think

    when James mentioned "worshipping" i didn't think he meant "religion"

    that was my take i could be wrong

    now we'll have to wait for the man himself JFP

    to say what me meant

    god is black.....

    do people worship god? or do they worship jesus, allah or budda?
    the later gentlemen have definite racial and cultural implications.

    i was mainly thinking of religion but also this whole thing that black people have of running after every body's culture and trying to get accepted.
    we always trying to assimilate into white culture. some of us try to learn arabic and dress like arabs. others try to get in with the asians.
    i hate that. my friends are black. my woman is black. my music is black. my culture is black.
    even my camera is black.

    we are lost,we don't know our names,we don't even know what tribes we belonged to in africa,our legacy as well as our very mind has been stolen and replaced with another mindset someone elses culture and way of thinking,we as we speak are STILL trying to figure out who we are..why do you think that since we've been here[they tell us since-1619???]we can't figure out what to call ourselves[coloured-negro-black-afro-american-african american]no my brother they knew what they were[and are[still doing]to us and go happily as lambs to slaughter[the slaughter of our minds]....hahahahaha,and the real joke on us is that WE THINK WE'RE HIP AND COOL.
