Thank you for sharing your experience Brother Blackbird!

That was a key perspective which was missing for me. Someone who has personally experience this process and had inside insight of the process. Also, Sister Astrologer opened me up to some things to consider as well.

Thank you Sister Astrologer!

You've provided much food for thought and another
way to look at it as well. Will i dismiss all information coming from non-Blacks about our own? Probably not, but i will be examining it a lot more closer.:wink:

I would love to see more of our own reporting about us, but that is not the case. We tend to stay away from issues that make us feel bad or that may show us in a negative light. Maybe it's because it helps many of us to feel less responsible, and excuses us from being motivated to do something about it. I don't know. But if we don't want non-blacks painting false pictures, we're gonna have to get out here and do the footwork.

:heart:

I propose we, those of us financially able to, go on a fact finding trip to Benin so we can get the official word of the street. Why? Because the crux of this discussion lies in one thing we haven't addressed because of fear and that is the possible moral inferiority or backwardness of African people. Why?

This particular story is about the Vodun convents in Benin and Togo, but there are other reports throughout Africa of the same types of behavior and they are only just within "traditional African beliefs".

The Murides of Senegal and some of the other Islamic tariqas are reported to persuade parents to send their children through religious authority and extortion to abusive Koranic schools. Sometimes the malam will kidnap or buy the children.

Certain Christian groups in Africa are alleged to participate in the same thing. So here we are - poised to asked the question are African people less compassionate, children-centric or tolerant than Europeans? Do we have less of a moral constitution than other people's that we are willing to abuse or scar children in public because of greed and maliceness parading as religious piety and devotion?

Blackbird

Wow! That question is as real as it gets Brother Blackbird.

I can't financially nor actively go, but i would be willing to contribute something to send one of our own. If we all put our resources together in this manner, we should be able to come back with more valued documentary.

So let's cut to the chase and ask the real question behind this thread - Are African people geneticaly, morally and cognitively inferior to whites?

No, i don't believe we are genetically, morally, and cognitively inferior. But i think we are afraid of the responsibility which comes with being the best that we are.

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
