You know this always seem to pop up a lot, sometimes it cools down, then it pops up again. Certainly African Americans or Blacks in America have had to deal with slavery in America from the very get go sought to speak. Yes, we have become in many ways the underdog and in the eyes of those whites we were put into the inferior position. Now getting into who our kindred is and who we are a part of there comes something that often makes me have a funny feeling...especially when our people will identify so much to others other nations just because they have brown skinned people there. Or should I say those who are oppressed. The Arabs in the Middle East have been identified as related to us;we think of Cuba as a friend because Cuba has Black people there; we think of Libya as our friend; we call almost every country or nation our friend. Oh and do not forget our people on the Continent of Africa. We cling to them like they belong with us, and belong with them, and yet some of them in African tend to think very negative things of us. Blame it on white supremist and racial hatred, but in this day and time people know better, but people have their own mindset, and some people will simply avoid us Blacks or African Americans like we are a hot potato. Minister Farrakkan of the Nation of Islam is a great speaker, yet some folks think it is a joke. They do not recognize him nor the members of the NOI as Moslems,etc. Anyway enough said on that topic....please try to understand that this is just an opinion and nothing more. Peace and Blessings.
