My friend sent me this email yesterday, I did not have the time to view it until last night, when I opened it I saw it was from the House of consciousness and Sa Neter interviewing this brother on the street. What he had to say was very interesting, so I want to share it.
It is important for me to say that I am black and I love my race, but often times I get disappointed when I see how they are throughout the world and how they have continued to be victims of their oppressors showing no signs of waking up and loving themselves, I am disappointed of their inability to love themselves as they should and as the builders and the greatest contributors of civilization and of life. Although I am black, and I love being black, I am so proud of my race, I shake my head at my people!
I have to love my race and where I am from. I have never wanted to be anything else but black. Other people are proud of who they are, as well they should, but most of us black people, still unconscious from our trauma which was the African Holocaust, the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade, are till enslaved by conditioning that we are less than all who exist on the planet. We refuse to see ourselves as the most beautiful race of people in all the world! O ma se oo!
My paternal grandmother was fathered by a Sephardic Jew,. The family of them migrated from Spain to Jamaica, they were a wealthy set of people. He screwed the maid and the result was my grandmother. He never turned the black of his Jewish eyes to my grandmother, she grew in poverty. She looked like them, skin fair and eyes blue, long wavy black hair. Her children including my father bragged about her saying that she was a Jew, (all this without acknowledgement from the scum bag who breed my great granny and had to stay quiet and keep away!) and I grew up hearing my father often declaring himself a Jew, I was embarrassed of this. This man from Spain who migrated with his family to Jamaica and had his wicked way with my great grandmother (who I am sure backed it up pon his bumper truck) which produced my Grandmother, and who never looked at the child or even acknowledge her (as far as I know), this was the person they should brag about and honor his ancestry? Calling themselves Jews? Abomination!! Not I! It even embarrass Black as I am me to tell you all this, But I am always honest in my postings.
They say from one ounce of black is in your blood, you are black, Hallelujah, I am black! I do not want to be mixed with anything, I love my black skin, and because I am fair in complexion, it often times bothers me that I am not melanated (I am not sure if that it a word, but it suits the purpose here) enough. It bothers me to hear people state everything that they are mixed with barely putting the black at the end. Look at Beyonce here;
For years Mariah Carey tried to hide the fact that she is black.
Black successful men rush to the Kardashians and the embrace them, o ma se ooo. I do not know what to thinks sometimes of our black men, they embarrass me. If they had nothing Kardashians would not even look their way.
The world speaks so well of Michael Jackson, and I love him, I cannot help it. However he disappoint me in him trying to change himself, his broad nose, his complexion, his hair???
God touched us in a special way, lips big since the beginning of time, while other people are scrambling for lip collagen injection.
Black /Tanned skin, they are scrambling to tanning salons
Hips and buttocks, which they are in line to pay and receive, yes God favored us, if only we could see our beauty, and if only our men could see our worth and love and appreciate us, his mother, his sister his woman, black woman!
The white man adores his woman, as well he should
The Chinese and Indian and all others loves and cherishes their women , families and themselves. Most often if they are mixed they deny it or are embarrassed of it.
We should love and be proud of ourselves,WE ARE A GREAT RACE OF PEOPLE!
Love is love and to each his own, but my preference has always been the black skin, so I have never inter bred. I was and am too fascinated with the black skin. White people love yourselves, Chinese you too and all others, Black people own your race and love yourselves!
All de one Bob Marley him and de son Ziggy Marley converted to Judaism because he married a Jewish woman, why couldn’t she convert to Rasta?
