To quote him...

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
~Martin Luther King, Jr.

This seemed to be the fundamental principle for most of his campaigns for European acceptance. The flaw here is the concept that "love" and "hate" are opposites of each other, or that hate is in effect the absense of love as he attempted to parallel with light and darkness. However, the absense of love does not connote hate. The result is rather indifferent, but is just as far from hate as it is far from love.

Another thing to consider is that "love" and "hate" are actually the same emotion. In both cases, something is particularly wanted from another person. The only difference is whether or not those conditions are met which determines the outcome of either love or hate.

The reason Europeans hated us is because we resisted their efforts to make us into perpetual slaves. The reason they felt a need for a Klan was to "keep the nigrahs in line"...that line was in the order of perpetual slavery. Now, back to King...since "love" and "hate" are in essence the same emotion, getting Euros to love us under the same conditions is perhaps more detrimental to the African than their hate.

In our efforts to get them to love us, the cohesiveness of the African family and community has suffered more in the last 40 years than in all the centuries of slavery, Jim Crow, and institutionalized racism leading up to the so called Civil Rights Era in this country.

Maybe you should explain that last paragraph a little more. There are different kinds and degrees of suffering. 1600 to 1900 was more of a physical suffering.
Now those kind of physical chains are gone the mental suffering today is what we must have to get ourselves in our right minds and possibly be angel driven Gods and Goddeses again like the first people. We cant use too much of the kind of mental suffering that comes when you have a nervous breakdown because the your Time Warner boss is on your *** because you didnt keep your employees in line.

I totally agree with your words; especially these:

"Another thing to consider is that "love" and "hate" are actually the same emotion. "

"In our efforts to get them to love us, the cohesiveness of the African family and community has suffered more in the last 40 years than in all the centuries of slavery,"

love or hate

these are two different emotions. First of all, let's examine EMOTION. E is representative of Energy, correct?

Motion is just that, Motion.

Energy in motion.

Some of Love's well-known attributes are Care, Patience, Warmth, and Affection

Let's contrast these attributes with some of Hate's many attributes: Selfishness, Impatience, Heat (H-a-t-e), Neglect

As you can see, Love and Hate contrast each other completely. Love is slow and Hate moves fast and creates hostile environments.

My thesis of these universal emotions concludes with saying,
"Divine Love is our greatest weapon against Hate"


p.s. Martin Luther King's most damaging flaw was his infidelity.
