Peace Brothers and Sisters,
I am so concern about my people in the United States and other places in this world. Whenever I mention Africa to my fellow people that would either turn their heads or be in def ears.
I remember alittle while back when I had a talk with this lady whom I know from the Market place that is from Trinidad Island. She asked me is my fiance is Nigerian, I said no, he is Ghanaian, an African just like me. She told me that I am not African but American, and I told her that I don't consider myself being American and that African is in my blood. She told me that I was born here and that I am American, and then she called herself a Trinidadian instead of African. I could really tell that she is ashame about her African roots. It is really sad that I would witness this from someone who is still mentally enslave and don't even realize it.
The reality will set in when people realize of whom they really are. The Europeans who is from America knew that we as black people are Africans, but instead of being called colored or niggers, they want to call us African Americans now.
Remember after the slavery end, blacks used to have their own lands for a short while, but blacks had never own lands, because whites would take it regardless if Africans were rich or poor. Whites would fight ever penny or violence to get the land.
Alot of our fellow people doesn't seem to understand our issues and what is going on. Being African and proud is another thing for me and few of my conscious brothers and sisters.
Many of our people that lives here in America and abroard wanted to be white, they are not satisfied with their dark skin, high cheekbones, full lips, and natural (nappy) hair. I know that some our ancestors is not happy about this, because they wanted for us to know about ourselves and where we came from. It saddens me when when a woman told me that she relie on her God (white's man), the bible, and the white. What a shame!
