as phucked up as this is...let's take a second look in a different context...

check...i'm not condoning this by any means...but by looking at things in it's proper context you can/will see things clearer...and that is the only way long term solutions can be garnered...

this article deals with the beading tradition in kenya...

Isiolo, Kenya (CNN) -- "Josephine" is 12 years old and several months pregnant.
She's a member of the Samburu tribe, living in a small village in a remote part of Isiolo in Kenya's Eastern Province. The pre-teen, whose identity is being protected, claims she had sex with a relative -- a rape sanctioned by the Samburu, through a practice called "beading."
Intricate beaded necklaces are a symbol of the Kenyan nation. But to young Samburu girls, the necklaces are a symbol not of national pride, but something much darker, that can lead to rape, unwanted pregnancies -- and even the deaths of newborns, according to activist Josephine Kulea and the Samburu tribe itself.
In "beading," a close family relative will approach a girl's parents with red Samburu beads and place the necklace around the girl's neck.
"Effectively he has booked her," says Kulea, a member of the Samburu herself. "It is like a (temporary) engagement, and he can then have sex with her." Girls are also "beaded" as an early marriage promise by non-relatives.
Some girls who are "beaded" are no more than 6 years old. They are the focus of Kulea's rescue mission, a trip to Isiolo she's been planning for weeks.

man I dont care how long who has being what, I know sur a hell you not going to let your uncle sex up your 16 year old child, cause he promised to pay her college tuition, when she gets to that age!

And aint no culture tradition what not can condone or rationalize the raping of elderly Black women

Elderly black women???

if that is the case why dont we just be like the white Illuminati and every **** thing goes , men sexing their daughters, getting them pregnant and then eating the baby in rituals.

:bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:
Yeah you are right we should listen to the white supremist and bow down humbly to him when he says Pan African concern

is not necesary, and an injury to one is not an injury to all

and "you negros just be concerned with the area where you are at, dont be concerned about Detroit unless you live there

don"t be concerened about a flood in Tanzania unless you live there

dont be concened about brothers killing each other in Newark unless you live there

and the Senaglese were foolish for offering assistance to Haiti"


"Just stay regionalized and marginalized so that I can keep you divided and continue to conqour!
besides I told you folk you are negros and not Africans, so dont be concerned about any one further then who you can see from your window"

I remember hearing some years ago that their was a rumour in South Africa that
the way to cure Aids was to have sex with a Virgin.. and that mean were
raping virgins hoping to be cured.. if that's the case, they need pistols not
kung fu..
absolutely.

Like it was said earlier, i believe it leaves room for colonization. I don't feel this is about one specific area in Africa, but it should be about all areas, because to go after women and little ones like that says alot about the whole issue of Black African people becoming vulnerable to so many other issues. There should be no excuse for this, in my opinion. my heart goes out to the women in this situation and also, to the kind of Black African men that I believe are confronting this issue and standing up against others.

I love Africa.

Hey.. where did the AIDS Come from? Probably the same place that the lie
that sex with a virgin cures it comes from. And that's to excuse anyone's
behavior but let's not forget that this is a man made disease unleashed on the
African population of the world with the intention of destroying us physically
and mentally.. and these kinds of events are evidence of it's effectiveness..

What exactly is your ideology?!
I'll be honest. I like black culture forums, so I've signed up for this one, BX, and Lipstick Alley. I won't post too often, only on things that I'm really interested in. Nice to meet you. :)
