Brother O ... thank you for the kind words ...omowalejabali said:Very wise words sister Destee!
This is something that has been bothering me lately. Excuse me for saying so but it's my opinion that this should be a written rule in this community. We have rules for respecting each other but some of the opinions here in regards to Our Ancestors is appalling at times.
At no time should we Speak Negatively about Our Ancestors. If we do, we risk Banishment.
I understand and agree with you, regarding respecting our Ancestors, and would legislate us honoring them properly, if i could ... but i can't. Loving ourselves, our people, our Ancestors ... is something that must come from the heart, if it is to be done properly. We must each be moved, in our own time, inside our own selves, to fully overcome the conditioning of white supremacy / racism. It is happening this way for me, so i'm willing to let it happen this same way for others. At least i try ... whew, sometimes ... i do get krazee about my Ancestors!
Thanks for sharing your suggestions with me. Even if i can't do them, others may read, and be moved to do it for themselves!
