DeepVoice:Deepvoice said:Pan, anybody who is African American would say that something is fishy going on with AIDS. The Bubonic Plague that hit Europe in the 16th century has nothing on this disease. They say that it killed at least a 1/3rd of the population in Europe and some say as much as 1/2 of the population. AIDS will more than likely take more, if not all in the course of a hundred years even. They say by the year 2020 that one hundred million people will be infected if the rate of infections continue and the vast majority of this will happen in Africa....What I'm obviously saying is that being pro-black shouldn't be based upon who you decide to sleep with. I once heard someone say that Cheikh Anta Diop had a non-black wife, it might have been a biography, but was he pro-black, or a Pan-Africanist? Interracial relationships is not the biggest hinderance to the pro-black movement, but you probably already know that. I just don't like the way you're trying to paint being for black people in a "box." You're trying to dictate what is and what isn't, which is wrong.
If you study the 36 pages of this thread, you'll see that I am far from the only person who feels the most important aspect of pro-blackness is the continuation of the race (manifested in black people having black children). Just because you don't feel that interracial relationships is the "biggest" hinderance to the pro-black movement, doesn't mean that it isn't a hinderance. As I stated before, the black community doesn't have to accept anything which isn't beneficial to its prosperity, continuance, and growth. The black community is not obligated to accept people in interracial relationships. The only persons obligated to accept them is their parents!
In your last two post, tou have actually highlighted many of the dangers currently facing black people. In areas where blacks are in the majority, Africa & the Caribbean, they are facing disease (man made) and wars, which are killing millions. In areas where blacks are in the minority, they face systematic efforts to destroy their culture...disrupt their families...dwindle their numbers...and mix them with other races (usually the majority population). Even though this is well known (I'm certainly not making it up) amazingly there are black people who don't think the black community worldwide is in danger or under attack. No we'll be around forever...nothing to worry about...close your eyes black people...every thangs gonna be alright!
P.S. You are young Deepvoice so all I really have to say to you is watch and learn. Other people however have no excuse.
