The US supported the secession of Kosovo from Serbia in the late 1990s (both had
been part of the Yugoslav federation in the Cold War, but it fell apart in the 1990s;
Serbia’s claims on parts of Bosnia and on all of Kosovo as the main Yugoslav successor
state were rejected by the US, which helped Bosnia and Kosovo secede.)

Slovakia seceded from Czechoslovakia in 1993, although that was a more amicable split
than the Kosovo secession or the Crimean one, if it happens. Still, Slovaks voted to
secede, and no one stood in their way.

The US was positively delirious about the break-up of Sudan and the creation of South
Sudan 2011. (Forces in the US congress see the break-up and weakening of Arab
Muslim states as a good thing). The wisdom of that secession is questionable, since
South Sudan has promptly become a failed state and is now having a civil war. The
violence down there was always blamed on Khartoum, but apparently there are social
formations and economic conditions in the south that just aren’t conducive to order.

While the US was ruling Iraq, Joe Biden and other US politicians tried to break it up
into a Kurdish, Sunni and Shiite state. No one said that a Kurdish

Lots of Irish-Americans would be perfectly happy to see Northern Ireland secede from
the United Kingdom and join Ireland. Boston donated money for terrorist actions
against London in the 1980s in hopes of making that happen. Rep. Peter King (R-NY)
was at that time an open supporter of IRA violence. Official US policy was more
even-handed. (I’m not taking a position on N. Ireland; just sayin’). In 1998 George
Mitchell negotiated a settlement between the UK and Ireland on Northern
Ireland,
which recognized Ireland’s legitimate interests in the north.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
