We should ignore them? ... hmmm ... :thinking:

We don't generally ignore folk on a collective level, but individually ... i think ... right?

You are free to ignore anyone you'd like ... for any reason ... most of us are free to do that.

I don't hardly ignore anyone though ... even dark skinned Dominicans ... and i certainly have no right or authority to exclude them (or anyone) from PanAfricanism.

In fact ... we have a Dominican Brother here in the community ... and he's probably ... "just a little black behind the ears" ... and i don't ignore him.

Ignoring each other, no matter the condition we may be in, cannot be the right answer.

In my opinion.

Much Love and Peace.

But you're trying to force something on them that they don't want. Shouldn't their opinion matter? I say that if they don't want anything to do with us, we shouldn't try to force ourselves on them.

Its not just an opinion, its self loathing, its a sickness. It wont hurt for them to be encouraged to embrace their blackness to have pride in their African features. You can't force anyone accept anything they don't want but they can be pointed to a better state of mind. Some will move on to a higher plain of self love others are too damaged to save. Slaves had enormous amounts of self loathing and we are still dealing with the effects today. Self loathing has detrimental effects on anyone, no matter what race or background, it causes one to mentally disenfranchised themselves because they feel they are not worthy or incapable of attaining something better.

You first asked ... should we ignore them ... and/or exclude them from panafricanism.

Now you're talking about forcing them to do something ... :look: ... you're switching up in midstream here.

I spoke to the ignore/panafrican questions ... and will speak to the force issue too ... if you can make it more clear.

Who can force anyone to do anything? Where did that come from? How does that fit into your initial query?

Using this community as an example, all are welcome ... including dark skinned Dominicans ... but none are forced.

I'm not really following you right now ... connect the dots aint work'n ... :ttt:

Can you help me?

Question I have is, do the dominicans' want to be included in
the panafrikan family? I don't have much respect for skip gates,
however he did partake in a documentary dealing with the
dominicans that was quite revealing and sheds some light
on why they act the way they do regarding their ethnicity.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
