Boboshanty dash fire on in-de-Pen dent women. Do we all know what a pen is? A pen is for hens... and other battery farmed animals.
And "open minded"-ness is a danger... as thee I them have discussed here... leaving ones open for penetrative vibrations created by babywrong... ref: this mindset thing thee I them have touched on. InI have locs practically as antennae, right? So... we open our mind to education by the elements... but close it to b*llsh*t. No wonder ones are out of breath.
What I was referring to as the "african" american ego is this idea that african-made americans have decided through a "process" that such process has qualified them as the golden children - type thing. But the flip side of that is that they are now a 'better breed of black'. This is definitely the case in vanity thinking (see Hollywood: Beyonce, Will Smith, etc, etc). But it is also the case in the wide movement of what is considered spiritual upliftment / awakening... whatever we wanna call it. For example, Nation of Islam, Black Hewbrew Israelietes, Newarpians (don't even start me on them)... and so on and so forth... unfortunately... some of them say RasTa too and mix up the principles with this type of nonsense.
One of the prime indicators of this mindset is the tendency to bear resentment towards Africans at home, African born Africans.
I have something direct to say about that. In general, Africans at home practically worship Black Americans. They are, to date, their notion of aspiration. This is a reality. I can only speak specifically about Nigerians... but I have a feeling it is spread wider. Africans at home don't want to be white americans... I mean, they definitely believe that white americans are a superior race (like the rest of white people)... but really, they don't want to be white. They see that being black american is the closest one can get to experiencing the bounties of white superiority, while still enjoying all the great stuff about being black.
So... they strive and strive and strive every blessed day to try and get to the West. And then they do... and the bubble bursts, and they see all the stuff they don't tell you about on cable TV out there in Africa. They see total degradation, poverty, illiteracy, dysfunction. Now... InI know and have made it our business to educate ourselves in the state of the human condition up til this time... but if you've done everything you can to get to Amerikkka to make some big DOLLAZ (as they usually think is gonna be the case), then social consciousness is not going to be your forte. All you are gonna see is lack of aspiration... after all, you're a black american... you are born here, this has to be the biggest privelege of all. Right? er... WRONG.
But, as the Honourable Empress Ten was saying, there is no communication, no sharing. Black Americans have this nostaligic fantasy of Africa and do very little about trying to relate to, or connect with the reality. I mean, after all... coming to terms with bad development, economic exploitation, post colonial psychosis... and generally bad sanitation inner city makes it a whole lot harder to wanna do a Kunte Kinte... and embrace the reality of repatriation, right? And where would they be if they didn't have the open plains, planteaus and savannahs of Africa to dream about? They might have to accept that they are now a finished product of their environment... both involuntarily and voluntarily. The lack of aspiration that the African immigrant is noticing is not an untruth, is it?
Similarly, if the African immigrant would only real-eyes what America would have done to him had he been the unlucky one on the ship that day... then where would his aspiration be then? Would he then have to realise that his beloved catholic / anglican priest or methodist pastor was actually lying to him? Or that his university professor was just attempting mimicry, allowing him to beLIEve that his you-never-see-ty education was gonna get him any more than a cleaning job at a US Institution....
I mean, come on people... this thing goes round and round. Ababa Jahnoy is the Father of ALL nations. InI, Israel, are the both the children and parents of all nations now and now.
Our biases of this flesh mean nothing... and they must be disregarded... en quantum... if we are going to achieve the oversight needed to say the word and break down the walls of Rome. I think the time for excuses is over. InI need to embrace the judgement and take the fire... cos after that the purging is complete. Know what I mean.
Give thanks for audience!!!
Love love love in my Fathers House where InI wear the only real colours... those of the rainbow... Red, Gold & Green (sing again!! LOL)
