Thanks for the welcome back, Destee!Destee said:Sister Riada ... Welcome Home ...
What comes to mind when reading your posts in this thread, is Mr. Neely Fuller's basic premise, which is:
If you do not understand 'white' supremacy (as racism)
----- what it is, and how it works ------
everything else that you understand, will only confuse you.
For you to blame Nigerians, or any non-white person for the condition in which they live, under this universal system of white supremacy, is an indication that you don't understand white supremacy ... in my opinion.
But i love you anyway Sister ... ... again ... Welcome Home!
Re this discussion, I'm going to be honest here and admit I don't understand what y'all are saying and yes, I have listened to Neely Fuller and Francis Cress Welsing, and the whole nine. Are you and others here saying that if I, for ex. stole food from nursing mothers, let your children die for lack of one antibiotic shot, stole medicine from sick people in the hospital, sold diluted medicine to poor patients, allowed others to poison your water and food supply, that y'all would say, "Oh poor Riada, she's suffering from post traumatic slavery disorder, so let's give her a pass."
I SINCERELY hope not!! Even though my ancestors were enslaved, PLEASE hold me accountable because I know what I'm doing, and if I can get over on y'all that easily, I'm gon think y'all are a bunch of weak-minded, suckers. At the very least, I wouldn't have any respect for people who would allow me to do those things to them and give me a pass.
I would hope y'all would chase me down and chop me up!!
Maybe, I'm missing something, but what has happened to Black people that we don't hold each other accountable for ANYTHING, anymore? This is SCARY! It seems like y'all are saying that anything terrible that any Black person does to another Black person does is understandable and justified because they're Black and have been traumatized by racism, colonialism, or both. Am I understanding this correctly?
