WORD!!!!In the Spirit of Sankofa,
.......Well, you asked the right person sister noor100...it isn't racist,
I don't know if you are aware of my book (Does Color Matter), its in my signature with a picture and a link; but I've been grappling with this ever since I wrote it in 2006, and it may be the very reason you have asked me the question. Just in case you haven't seen it, here's a link to my website:
Sister, whenever I explain the color issue expounded upon in my work, or answer questions relative to Mt DNA, I found it necessary to safeguard the very issue you put before me (is it racist to place melanin over recessive genes)? Why do we feel its necessary to apologize for the truth. I no longer do it noor100, and I feel good about the knowledge and recommend you make the same adjustment.
The only answer I can give you is that we have been so brainwashed into buying "his-story" we feel inadequate to take on the responsibility of being at the top of the Human Ladder. When it is now finally apparent, a mutant recessive could not hold that apex position, we can now turn toward the truth that African people populated the earth, and that there is no way any other so-called race or group can extricate themselves from that humble beginning and stand independent from it; neither can non-blacks assume they were created first by the Creator...It just doesn't pan out sister noor100.
And finally, I have an appointment tomorrow with a Pastor and will have no draw backs when I present the facts.
