    Hello Family,

    Instead of us talking about who we are against, let's talk about who we are for.

    Can you name individuals or organizations you are for?

    Please share with the Family about them, why are you for them?

    How do you demonstrate that support?

    Looking forward to learning from you.

    :heart:

    I'm not for any organisation per se, but I am for the health, wealth, spiritual, intellectual and physical well being of all black children, more than anyone else right now.

    How do I demonstrate this, by being an educator

    Brother Sekhemu ... Good Morning ... :love:

    Is there not any one individual or organization that you stand behind and/or support?

    An individual or organization that you'd encourage others to support as well?

    Hello,

    I can't make sweeping generalizations about organizations either. However, I can name some individuals (public personas) who I feel have worked positively towards the empowerment and healing of Afrikan people, and I'm sure once I've been at this site a little longer, I will identify similar character traits amongst the posters! :) Frances Cress Welsing, Mwalimu Baruti, Kola Boof, Paul Alfred Barton, Jewel Pookrum, Ousmene Sembene, Ishakamusa Barashango, Adbias Do Nascimento...just to name a very few....

    Blaklioness ... Hello and Welcome ... :wave:

    Thanks for naming names! That's what i want! :love:

    Let's lift up the names of the people and organizations that you are proud of, that you support!

    We can easily name all the ones we don't like and or agree with.

    Brother James, being an Elder and all, having been blessed to live longer than most here ... who are the individuals or organizations, still living and operating, that you have confidence in, who you are willing to give your support or thumbs up?

    Let's name names Family.

    :heart:
