Good morning one and all. I am not one to be happy and satisfied with anything and stay silent, same as if I am upset or sad. I always show my appreciation and love for you all and today I want to show it again and I suspect that this will become a habit. Last night was wonderful, I am very happy for the support and I am also very proud of all of you. It was the first night of our cultural discussion and it went very well. I want to keep the momentum going and going and going, and I am sure you all feel the same way.

 

The subject last night was “How Europe underdeveloped Africa”, and it was a pretty heavy book to read and aslo the subject was very deep.  The plight of the African people and people of color can never be ignored. We are important people and we are from a great race. Contrary to what is presented to the world, we are not a set of  backward, or barbaric bush people who others found lacking and had to open our eyes and feed us!

Way before the caves opened up to let out all those who sought to oppress the Africans, we had Kingdoms, and learning centers, Great mystery system in place and more. We were and still are a loving race, and we welcomed strangers with open arms and taught them, fed them, introduced them into our mysteries and they turned around and bit the hands which fed them.

This Book which was the subject matter last night, was on point with how it explained the very title “How Europe Underdeveloped Africa” I am still reading it, because I did not have the time to finish. It is important that we free our minds, it is important that we learn. It matters not of your race, color or creed. It matters not that I Obara Meji am an African or Jamaican, what is important, the most important is learning. Do not hide your self away by believing that because you are not of the black race these knowledge has nothing to do with you, you are of the human race and all things concerning human beings should concern you! Learning is learning, knowledge is knowledge, History is History. We need not know of just one thing we need to know as much. Please read the book called The African Unconscious, by Edward Bynum, Please invest in this book!!!…Please read Stolen Legacy, by George. G. M. James!, he lost his life because of this book! Please READ!

Kemet was the name  for which nowadays Egypt is called, from Kemet we have Chemistry, no little black boy or girl should be challenged in school with this subject, our ancestors mastered it, and turned around and taught it to THEM!!

Consider Modern day Sudan, which was called Nubia upon a time ago, we will study Sudan in times to come, you will be amazed of what is there and their contribution to the world, Ethiopia formerly called Cush taught the Kemetians now called Egypt how to read and write, there are Pyramids in Ethiopia older than what is in Egypt. We will observe the Dogons from Mali in times to come, and also the Bush men In Namibia, we will explore Africa, our great home, saddle up and prepare for a very long journey, back to Africa, Back to our home!

Regardless of who you are you must be willing to have an open mind, listen, view, read, and learn, arm yourself with knowledge which will be sweetly satisfying to the spirit and allow you to understand life and how the world and its people came into being.

Below you will find some very short videos of Dr. John Henri Clarke and Dr. Ben Jochanan, and another video of a debate, as I said I wanted to keep the momentum going and so I want to watch these videos as I will also post some more tomorrow. From them we will learn much, how can that be a bad thing?  Also watch Ashra Kwesi with his amazing video on Free Masonry and its origins.

Attention for our Friday Night discussion, Let us discuss a relationship which seemed like torture, or Someone you should have never walked away from, the best relationship you have ever had!

George G.M. James, Guyana’s Shining Star – A Tribute

 

 

 

 

 

This is a video by Ashra Kwesi, watch and learn!!

Alas I couldn’t miss out on turn up Friday! Well my weirdo story happened in art school. From I stepped onto the campus I met this Jamaican boy (hmmmmm) who creeped me out. He would stare at me on the bus and run up behind me when I got home from work late at night. He would always ask me to go on a date but he was always over the top, so I had managed to avoid him successfully for a year and a half. I was graduating saying my goodbyes and suddenly this dude cornered me in the lobby area of the dorm. He was acting like a psycho and demanded to know why I hadn’t given him a chance . I thought he was going to attack me when his friend came up and moved him out of the way. I quickly made an exit and dodged his psychotic ass.

LOL, I have always had a thing for older women too… I mean, I have met a few mothers who maintained themselves a whole lot better than their daughters.

Lalibela A Nile (@Lalibela_Nile)

If you’ve ever been in a situation where you were after a prospect–in my case a female–and the friend just jump and block ya progress, this is for your…

I had a massive crush on this catty for the longest and no matter what, she would not give me the time of day. When I met her, she had her man, so I had to hold my corners. None the less, I would also flirt with every given opportunity and the flirt would alway be reciprocated…

A few months went by and I ran into her out of the blue… In conversation she advised that she was not single and per my solicit, conceded that we should hang out… Happier than me you couldn’t find. We decided to grab a bite and possible catch a movie–the Matrix.

Later on we met up and she advised that she’s got to drop off a package to her friend at the all girls school before we did our thing and she wanted to know if I was okay with that. Naturally, I said no so we proceeded onto the campus. I mean, I have been after this woman for the longest. We went through the whole man-in-the-hall thing and made her way to the friend’s room.

Come to find out, the friend was a female that I have seen around but I didn’t know much; I greeted her and her mexican man loving white roommate. We chatted for a second, then my female interest got a call from a family member and the friend asked me if I wanted to accompany her to the library for a second. I saw no harm in such so I said yes.

That was a mistake on my part, the girl had me trapped in the a common area, killing me with playful flirtatious talk. There I am concerned about every minute that went by… Wondering what the other girl was thinking. Since an access card was needed to move around, I had no choice but to suffer the agony of this girl talking me to death. She asked me a million questions and since I wasn’t interested, they all seemed stupid. We were down there for almost 2 hours.

By the time we got back to the room, shorty stated that she was ready to leave and that she no longer wanted to go home. I was so pissed at the other girl for ‘cock-blocking’. My female interest never gave me the time of day after that and I have not found a way to forgive that other hater girl for ruining my opportunity…

The moral of the story, be careful of cock-blockers–male and female 🙂
