Any colours can be a downpresser.For instance in the Congo,the Belgians colonized it but then put some Congolese people in charge of the mine because Congo had some resource.The Congolese people beat and forced them to work for no pay.There you are,slavery on people by its own people.

InI am in no way defending colonization as InI think it is what is responsible for making this skin colour thing a big stereotype for hate.But every colour has its downpresser and its righteous ones.

Not all whites are or were downpressers ever.Where InI come from our people have been downpressed since time began.

truth spoken, Ras.

I felt the urge to also mention how England colonized and enslaved several places in Europe... so did Rome... and Ireland is still in a civil war because of it (and other things) Look at Egypt, enslaving other African people through history. So many examples...

The best, most basic, truest bottom line is: Every color has it's downpressors. --It's just the truth, like every color has it's people who whould rather die than see racism. Some people get unbelievably offended if they are called racist, even jokingly.

They say how terrible "black on black" crime is... but why is it worse than white on black or black on white... what about yellow on yellow, or yellow on black... and what about green on purple.. it's all just rediculous Babylon things -set up to make brothers and sisters kill and hate eachother.

Respect and Love

I can't speak for others. But I know what some wicked white men did to Africans, Asian, First Nations and also to other white men, it can't be denied because it happened.

All I am saying is that certain white nations did that and other white nations did not. For example, the Serbian people were enslaved by the Turkish for 500 years, during the same time period that Africans were enslaved in the Americas. And there are also other white nations that had no part in slavery.

I am just asking you to consider this and make a distinction between the oppressors that did these things and those that didn't. It is not just about individual white people that didn't enslave Africans, but it is about whole white nations that didn't enslave Africans. I prefer to look at people as individuals, rather than grouping them. But if you must group people, then group them based on the countries that did these things. Because even though there were individuals that were against slavery in these nations, the people of these nations collectively supported and took part in the slavery of Africans. But don't group it by the colour of skin, or you will be bearing false witness.

But as I said it is even greater if you don't group at all. If you are sensitive to the Spirit and are observant, then you will know who is who. If you base your judgement on groupings by nations or colour, then you will sometimes accept wicked people and reject righteous people.

Read these words of the King of King, Lords of Lords, and see what He deals with.

Radhakrishan Receives Degree From H.S.I.U.
Wednesday, October 13, 1965

The Lion of Judah has prevailed
Haile Selassie I, Elect of God
King of Kings of Ethiopia

On the occasion of Your Excellency's visit to Our country it gives Us special pleasure to receive you at this institution itself dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge and truth. It is altogether fitting that Your Excellency should be the focus of this occasion, for Your Excellency has yourself since your youth been dedicated to that cause. Your marked achievement to the august rank of Professor at the youthful age of twenty-eight, your consistent endeavour to pursue knowledge and the numerous books that have flowed from your pen, to this bear witness.

Today more than ever before man realizes the bond of unity that exists within the race; he is endeavouring to employ the accumulated knowledge and wisdom of the ages. He is employing modern science and technology; he is reaping the benefits, however limited, of political and economic unity; and to that extent, he is transcending the age-old barriers that have divided the race so long and is endeavouring to reflect on the welfare not only of himself and his immediate neighbour but also on the welfare of all the human race. This endeavour is in harmony with the spirit of the mystics of ages gone by " the mystic traditions of the different religions we have a remarkable unity of the spirit. Whatever religions they may profess they are spiritual kinsmen. While the different religions in their historical forms bind us to limited groups and militate against the development of loyalty to the world community, the mystics have always stood for the fellowship of humanity," so Your Excellency has taught us. And in an effort to carry out this teaching to pursue truth - to promote those bonds common to the human race - Your Excellency has dedicated your whole life. To free the human race from superstition and fear that originate from ignorance; to enable him to transcend the apparent obstacles of race and religion; and to help him recognize the blood-ties of the whole human race, Your Excellency has laboured. To this generation, so tormented between modern knowledge and ancient faith, your scrupulous studies have pointed the way by which man may be saved from traditional superstition and modern scepticism.

Were the thoughts of Plato and Socrates, the beliefs of Christianity and Judaism not harmonized with Hindu philosophy; were Yoga and its various stages not exposed to Western thought; had Western religion and philosophy not been exposed to the philosophy and religion of the East through Your Excellency's persistent endeavour, how much the poorer would human thought have been!

In the history of the human race, those periods which later appeared as great have been the periods when the men and the women belonging to them had transcended the differences that divided them and had recognized in their membership in the human race a common bond. Your Excellency's constant endeavour to challenge this generation to transcend its differences. to recognize its common bond and to work towards a common goal has doubtless made this age pregnant with greatness. It is, therefore, in recognition of these labours that We, with unequalled pleasure, bestow upon Your Excellency the degree of Doctor of Letters, honoris causa.
