Hello everyone, yesterday I saw this video and decided to share it. The woman in the video below spoke the truth, every word she shouts from her mouth is the truth. I have pride in who I am, yet I am apart of a race of people who have been oppressed for hundreds of years. A regular reader and part time blogger once told me when I called myself black, never to say so again. I was surprised at first, because she is African, and my concept of myself coming from my beautiful race was that I was Black and African which spells the same thing. I was proud in my blackness and would shout it everywhere. I even asked God in my prayers, that should I ever come back to this earth plane (for whatever reason, although I do not want to) please make me come back as apart of the black race. The person told me that the term “black” is a derogatory term given to us by same oppressors. It was meant to be a negative term, not one owing to our skin color, but geared toward putting us down, as everything white is pure and darkness suggests evil, wicked, sinful and unclean. She said I should then address myself as African, or of African ancestry, or African Jamaican, much like what The African Americans asked to be referred to. All this is semantics to me, I am a spiritualist/Traditionalist who identify with African ancestry. It is true I have Sephardic Jews in my blood, and the only reason I mention this is because I know the importance (spiritually) of including them, they are apart of me and I must not hide them, I did for a long time, not wanting anything to do with this part of me, but I must recognize them.
As a spiritualist, I know better than to separate the races, this has no relevance, value or recognition once you are out and away from the physical body, meaning the death of the physical, once you have joined your ancestors. It is a social construct, a power play by those who have been hunting power, to dominate this earths sphere. Tools such as religion has been invented to aid in this artifice which has been imbued in minds, indoctrinated. Words, repeated often enough as truth, becomes truth, and as time goes on who will know the difference?
Please watch and enjoy.[fbvideo link=”https://www.facebook.com/ufulu.bomani/videos/1495860880739979/” width=”500″ height=”400″ onlyvideo=”1″]
