Blessed Love Idren
IPXninja, Give thanks for the I’s Raspect. I agree about the 2 party shytstem, and why it makes sense for InI to avoid the Republican party. Especially in these times, when they choose a candidate who openly supports fascism. I man will look closer at the dealings of Russia and Putin and Tronald Dump and amerikkka. I man have sighted NUFF dirty deals going on against InI, in broad daylight, with babylon full support. GOP along for the ride for sure. Silence is violence.
I laughed when the I mentioned the game Risk haha. Yes Rasta I man love to strategize and Risk is a good game for that. Lots of chance tho. Roll of the dice. Just like real life sometimes haha.
I give thanks for the I’s careful approach and efforts for inclusivity. InI support and promote HIM Haile Selassie I as earth's rightful ruler. HIM represents a story that is larger than the limited view that western powers try to push on InI. I think it is fair to say HIM stands for a more inclusive view for all people to live in harmony on this earth, which is the opposite that white supremacy stands for, by dividing InI by race (and class, but still amplified by racial tensions). As InI know, in the english language the opposite of white is black (in terms of primary colors and language). I sight some of InI choose to use abrasive or harsh language to get their points across. I suspect as an effective measure to bring attention to the idea by inciting emotion. I know I man promote setting emotion aside in reasoning on important issues, but I man also sight that emotion is a useful way to bring attention to causes that the shytstem tries to intentionally hide from InI. Emotion is also a byproduct of the treatment from society that InI might face, and is the right for Idrens to show.
I man trying to be very careful what I say, because of course I don’t want to promote division or hatred of white people. I man saying I think the idea of “black supremacy” has absolutely nothing to do with the actions or ideas of white supremacy, regardless of the choice of language Idren choose to use. Again, I man not trying to promote division or damaging language, I man promoting freedom of speech. People of color and black people have the right to express themselves with language that may sound unwelcoming to a random white person, without worrying about if that person should feel included. I man don’t think I man teaching the I anything the I is not already aware of, I man just saying I don’t think InI need to be as concerned about the egos of random white people. Our backward president is posting videos of white people in golf carts saying “white power” and they call that freedom of speech. Maybe by seeing some of the posts here, a white person will be inspired to learn what the notion of “black supremacy” could mean, before they left this forum in misplaced disgust. Maybe they would see, despite the emotional language, “black supremacy” has nothing to do with hate. Maybe they would learn something about how the western governments prop up a ineffective and untrue world-view that benefits the 1%. For any confused white person on this forum wondering what black supremacy means, I might direct them to this post:
I won’t bother copy pasting onto this topic, but I think Garveys Africa does a good job of explaining the idea of “black supremacy” in the second post on the thread.
Black Christ in Flesh, InI don’t tell the I to keep your mouth shut.
IPXninja, I see some of the points the I argues about white power, but I feel the I does not put enough responsibility on the wealthy whites as the designers, instigators, perpetrators, and perpetuators of this special brand of white supremacy that is unique to amerikkka. Lets not forget or let them disguise where their wealth was created from: stolen land and slaves. Even new wealthy people, that were formed long after the days of slavery, owe the capitol of the system that they benefitted from to the labor of slaves and land that was taken for free. Therefore, it is simple fact that the wealthy in this country need to attempt to correct the wrongs that they have embraced since the creation of amerikkka. Reparations and land reform would be great starts.
I have read some of the I’s reasoning on how effective the rich white people were able to use poor white people for their benefit, especially in relation to keeping black people in slavery or downpression. I agree with this completely. Poor white people have been inspired to do atrocious things, in blind desire to continue to receive a paycheck. Wealthy whites weren’t hired to captain or crew slave ships, or to capture runaway slaves, or to work as prison guards. I think that is why, in order for the argument for reparations to gain ground, poor whites need to be told the truth that they don’t need to be held financially accountable. The wealthy 1% that benefits from the division and economic downpression of InI should carry the complete responsibility. In I opinion, it will become a much easier battle when we join together and realize just how much the odds are in our favors.
Redistribution of wealth should be a topic that anyone who isn’t in the 1% should be interested in. Reparations would benefit black people and white people, because it will attempt to correct the financial discrepancies of amerikkka’s past. Poor white people should be on board, since they won’t have to pay for it, and InI will be one step closer to a country that has at least attempted to heal the wrongs of its past. InI should not be shy to say that the group responsible for the cost should be the group that benefited the most from the cheating shytstem they created.
I man sight these issues might be more pressing in amerikkka or countries that are dealing with the effects of colonialism, but I man think it is a necessary step that needs to be taken before InI can truly expect this country to advance past racial divisions.
HAILE SELASSIE I IMPARTIAL
