Black Amerikkkans, Africans in the Diaspora and AFRiCA
African History have been Distorted, Hidden, Ignored and Thwarted by AmeriKKKan Society. The result is a Distorted view of Africa on the part of Most Americans. Are African-Amerikkkans sincerely interested in reconnecting with Native Africans and the Motherland just by sheer fact that we belong to the same Race? I could boldly say that BLACK AMERICANS along with their White counterparts in AmeriKKKa are somewhat shallow about AFRICA, not with nor by intent, but by the mere fact that they are not exposed to the Deeper sense of AFRICA. Because all they hear about Africa is Poverty, Africans being Uneducated Fools living in Mud Huts, all walking Carriers of the Aids Virus.
Africans in the Diaspora are not ALL avid Pan-Africanists. But we must consider however that in the Midst of the struggle a LARGER NUMBER of African descents in the Caribbean, Brazil and the Americas held on to OUR Heritage! If you go to any of these countries, you will SEE that Black people do things differently from the way white people do them, in the same country, in contrast of Blacks in North Amerikkka. That difference is the difference in CULTURE, European and African Culture phenomenal. Despite many years of Separation from Africa considerable West African Traditions still remained. Watch the Markets in Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad, St Lucia, Antigua, Guyana, Brazil, Cuba and compare them with the ones in Senegal, Mali, Ghana, Nigeria, Chad, Congo, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Niger, Benin or Togo you will notice striking similarities!
Therefore I think it is the Duty of Black Amerikkkans having reached the end of their journey to Freedom to reconcile with Native Africans, African people in the Diaspora and the Motherland. They should strive towards it! But instead of learning, accepting, and attaching themselves to their Ancestors' culture, they choose to Imitate and Follow the Culture and Ideals of the very same people who Oppress them for centuries
Today though, it's nice to see More and More Brothers ands Sisters in AmeriKKKa beginning to think out of the bubble.
I am especially happy to know Conscious Brothers and sisters here in the U.S who had the Opportunity to visit the Motherland, thus had to Opportunity to Experience their Roots. This is very important for their Self-preservation! I urge African-Amerikkkans to Gain all the knowledge they can about our Ancestors, continue to visit and give to the Motherland from their hearts! They will be richly rewarded for their efforts. WE ARE ALL AFRICANS PERIOD!
