@ Ark I
I was unaware that you are of Serbian ancestry. I thought you were what the oppressor refer to as "black". In any event, I still hold my position, that you are an intelligent man, and your reasoning always lead to real resolutions, and not just fake rhetoric. Therefore I commend you on that.
I, like yourself, have something in common. We both know that Selassie I is God almighty incarnate in the flesh. No doubt in my mind. That being said, I do not dissmiss the words of the God and creator of Man who is as I stated earlier H.I.M.
I wish to God that all men could live peacefully side by side. I wish that we could do business economically one with the other, without one side or faction becomming envious of the wealth of the other. This behaviour is what leads to colonialism, and slavery. I wish through fair trade we could reap the benefits of natural resources, that this earth has to offer.
However as a black Cherokee, I am put into a postiton of being on the defensive. Like you my positon in life is soley based upon what my ancestors laid down, which you pointed out about your ancestors. Neither of us (you or me) had any dealings in what took place centuries ago, and may not have any direct dealings in this current oppresion today. However due to the lack of effectivness of my ancestors to defeat their enemies have placed me in a rather uncomfortable position as a warrior. Being that I wish for peace first whereever and whenever possible.
I mean no disrespect to my ancestors, nor yours, but our positions today is a direct result of their weaknesses as a people. To subjegate others is a weakness. Also it is a weakness to fall prey to invaders. Before any empire falls, it must first fall from within. The advantages that "whites" have in this current system, is a direct result of colonialsim and slavery, which have trippled Europes food supply, and doubled her wealth. This is not something to habor inwardly as hate, but rather a recognition that we are now fighting an uphill battle to recliam our destiny as a people. Slavery and colonialsm, has put the white man out front. And when you are out front, and no nation can judge you (as described in Revelations), then you sit a Queen, able to prognerate all manners of unjustice. Is not the United States government based on a 3 teir system? Judicial, Executive, and legislative? This ensures that there is a system in place for checks and balances. But as powerful as the white man is, nobody can put him in check. Revolution is the only asnwer. There is a time when dialogue is no longer feasible.
If there are white men who are of good nature, such as your words lead me to believe, then fight along with me to end the system of oppression over the indigenous people's of this planet. After all we both believe in the same God King.
