Blessed Love again, Royal Sons & Dawtas.
Back to the ila conversation, before RasK did his lil thing again.
Sorry Empress Ten, I felt a little bit undermined. Nothing personal like, obviously we don't know each other. I appreciate that.
Yeah. I know all of the arguments for the liberalisation of the progressive movement of African people at the four wings. And I appreciate the intention in the strategy.
I do think that this practice has been happening for a long while and it is the spirit of compromise that is ruining the self-determinate ideal of an effective pan-African liberation. But fair enough, the I thinks it is more affirmative and is the way to go.
We will only be able to know the effects of this "liberal" extremist iwah in time to come. In 50 years time we will be able to know and read of Alek Wek's true experience. And if we think it's all smiles and banknotes... well, I expect we will get a large surprise.
This is a far more dangerous time than InI have ever been in before, the profits of which should not be underestimated. Nuff ones and ones are making pacts with the devil, and this is a true thing. You know what they say about standing on sinking sand.
I don't have a particular problem with the behaviour of African-American-esque lifestyle. I don't walk around vex all day. Oh, and it is also a cheap shot when people say, well... don't you buy this or that belonging to the X world... we are in the X world, that doesn't mean we have to endorse the trickery just to justify ourselves.
I said in another post that I love JAH Ras Tafari judgement. All of it. I won't justify every single element of my personal behaviour, there's no point in that, cos there is still only truth.
So, I still throw a fiyah blaze... and if it catch me, fair enough. Cos it all has to bun up. My thing is that we are to simply KNOW the wickedness in what we do, even when it is what we do when that's the only choice we have. There is mental strength in maintaining a distinct line between Rights & wrongs within your irits and within your consciousness.
It makes no sense to start to take wrong for right, just cos there's not enough right left in the world. And we feel like we need more right. Wrong can't right. It's simple as that. No matter how many wrongs, none of them make a right.
So, if I have a mobile phone containing the said material... I don't start thinking that's not something to burn out. It is fiyah bun. This is the society we're living in. In fact I tried not having a mobile for about 3 months, and you know what, it was people who insisted I get one so that they could get hold of me. It started to seem rude to people that I didn't have a mobile number. Then I needed to be contactable for work, blah blah blah... so ye see... it's the same as Oluchi, she takes the job cos she has to. It really is nothing to judge the individual for. But it is not something to endorse. InI are still enslaved, in many more ways than we ever were before. We still have to keep it at the forefront of our mind, that as RasTa we have the vision and the meds to know where the line stops. Wrong is wrong, and right is right.
Many thanks again.
The sooner we get to grips with how that effects us, the sooner we can start to formalise a real and effective liberation plan.
