    I know the video that I'm about to post is about to ruffle some feathers, hence the topic.

    This video was put together by a sista who speak some common-sense to the sistas in the so-called conscious community - which seems to be more asleep then those who supposed to be asleep. Now I ask that you actually listen to this video to the end.

    Warning: This video do hold some foul language - so if you are not comfortable with some foul language - I don't know what to say ... This sista actually made me smile but I know she's going to get some sistas upset ...

    I placed this video in the black spirituality section because it deals with the teaching that is going around in the conscious community in concerns to the black woman being god. So hears the video. Again, you might hear some stuff that sounds off - but give it until the end of the video and you will see where she's going with her discussion.

    This sista literally made me want to get out of my seat and find her - she was talking some real. I was smiling - which is something that I rarely find myself doing - but I was smiling thinking - where does this woman live at so I can meet her now. I was ready to protect, etc ... this queen.

    When a woman can talk like this and truly uplift the brotha - with powerful words like this - she makes a black man want to be what he was designed to be - the shield that protects his sistas, the sword that cuts down obstacles, the chariot that carries his kids and queen to where they are going.

    How did you find this video?

    I'm asking because I would like to share it. She pointed out some things that I have been voicing for awhile myself which resonated with me.

    I listened to this sister's arguments. I followed what I could until I felt like I was experiencing mental whiplash! I find myself able to accept *some* of what she argues/adheres to; yet, there is *some* of what she adheres to/argues that leaves me recognizing that she wants the Black Man freed (to choose Sisters as his life mate) IF she acknowledges that HE is a Black Woman's LORD AND MASTER (and not SHE, herself). Well, for me, it is when she attempts to lay out how that freed Black Man shall thereafter function as A MAN/Lord and Master over her, and her childrens' lives that I think it important to consider HOW such a relationship would *flow*. The *day to day* kind of consideration.


    See, a Black Woman with children to nurture and a household to perfect HATES ALL THREATS targeting not just her children, but for a certainty her LIFE MATE too, so...this Sister's EMPHASIS on a freed, naturally ordered Black Man as WARRIOR/PROTECTOR of his woman and children is kind of *one dimensional* and actually fails to take into account the BLACK WOMAN'S instinct-to-conscious FORETHOUGHT brought to bear against ALL THREATS she picks up on, in order to PROTECT what is HERS!


    I feel much respect for what this Sister felt compelled to say, but in terms of building, too, she states that the Black Woman played no role in building? I admit I don't know what the so-called conscious community presently teaches about this, which means I don't know why this Sister felt compelled to speak on the matter more than once; still, when I heard her assert this, my immediate instinctive response was something along the lines of "I don't think so. Not correct." So in this assertion of hers, it doesnt sound right to me. Unless someone can explain/show me something in support of what she had to say on this, well (me shrugging).


    Gender. I wonder what this Sister (or anyone) can think represents gender-GENIUS, and how the freedom to exercise gender-GENIUS produces *flow* from the mundane to the higher dimensional?


    One Love, and PEACE

    I listened to the video twice and did not hear her say the Black woman played no part in building.

    What I did hear her say is that the Black man built monuments in honor the the Black woman and child as the Architect, or Master Builder of Black culture or civilization.

    This is why when people have asserted that our ancient monuments have been built by Black women I have asked for proof considering gender roles in most African societies, some of which had highly specified guilds based on the organization of secular society, which I have shared in regards to one of the oldest remaining societies, the gadaa system of the Oromo in Ethiopia.

    Although this specifically speak to the "conscious community," it also resonates with me as a Christian.

    I was agreeing with much of what this Sister said here as it aligns with the Bible.

    She spoke about the word "submit" and how it is always attached negatively. It doesn't mean that the woman is "beneath/lesser than" the man but it denotes her "position/role" in the family which is different from his position/role in the family.

    She spoke about Black women learning what their position is and how to play it as their Black man plays his position also as protector/provider/defender.

    She spoke about how a woman should and needs to be "behind" her man, giving him his position "out front" to protect.

    Black men/"Warriors" instinctively do this....Even when walking down a city sidewalk, a man will prefer to be on the outside, next to the traffic or a crowd, with his woman/children on the inside. This is that "protector/defender" in him.

    All of this is in the Bible from Adam, the first Man, and Eve, his "help-mate" to the New Testament.

    She spoke about the Black man being "god," saying that a man who will give his life for his woman/children is her "lord and savior."

    In the Bible, the man is like a "god" under God/submissive to God, the Lord and Savior. The man is to love and protect as God loves the church/the body of Christ/believers.

    IMO, this video should be viewed/digested by a lot of Christian Black men and women as a teaching tool with the Bible.

    I enjoyed it! I just applied the Bible to what she was saying to the "conscious community" but the same lessons still apply.
