Reactionary behaviour can work for a while, it can (rarely) achieve short term goals, but can you really live your life, and subsequent generations, by reacting to others? Black people seem to have a thing for reacting and not acting upon. This stretches into our identity, the one drop rule, who were are, where we come from, who we affiliate with etc.
Black people continue to bring mulattoes and other multiracials into the fold due mainly to reactionarism. No other reasoning stands out for most blacks than ‘well society people treats them the same as us’. It is a blatant fallacy, why do people (falsely) claim colourism is an issue if the treatment is exactly the same. Regardless most people aren’t leaders, most aren’t attempting to critically think. These people are not thinking but are reacting to something. Regardless of the fact that no other group of powerful peoples allow people who are half-something else to dominate their history books, leadership class, be overrepresented in the media ect. The lessons aren’t been learnt. Responding constantly doesn’t allow for lesson learnt to sink in. People often also react to the good things that mixed people have done to blacks, which is foolish. An individual is a member of a group, how many mixed people have highlighted the fact that historically they have not rebelled against the white racial and pigmentocratic order. How many mulattoes today even bother to talk about the reason they are overrepresented in the ‘black history months’ is because powerful whites give them better access to opportunities? (Pigmentocracy.) As a group mixed people can opt and be trained differently, blacks don’t have power enough to change how mixed people think. That is the issue, not whether one or a bunch of individuals has supported blacks, but whether black people can create the identity and mind frame of the next generation of mixed people (the collective). Mixed people from Latin America as a whole certainly don’t think like mixed people who originated in the USA. Group identity not individuals. Individuals can’t do as much as a group.
This is a picture from The Source a Hip Hop magazine for an article on the origins of black history month. Never mind the fact this magazine was created by two white Americans who went to Harvard University and has never been owned by any black people. 5 out the 14 people are multiracial in this photomontage, yet on average, 5 out of any 14 self-proclaimed Afrikan Americans picked out haphazardly on the streets of New York, Chicago, Dallas, Kansas City, Atlanta etc. would not be. That is a radical misrepresentation of Afrikan Americans.
The identity issue of blacks in the West are continual due to reactionaryism, we are not focusing on current causes. We are going with white approved and acknowledged origins for problems. Although enslavement has caused limbos in our behaviour, blaming literally everything on enslavement and reacting to events centuries ago does not resolve ALL of what is going on today. To compound problems, the narrative on slavery is very inaccurate.
The true roots of the problems are reactionary behaviour and a lack of grasp on reality. The ancestor Amos Wilson often said ‘we could not be in the position we are in unless we are out of our minds’. The same issue occurs in the reality that black equals African. There are different ethnicities of black people who will fight each other due to historical enmity, close proximity and basic differences. Many Afro-Caribbeans and Afro-Americans tend to reject Afrikan as a label due to certain immigrants that they have met been against them. This is a justifiable reason behind problems between the groups but rejecting your own ancestral right due to reacting is plain foolish. It is damn near delusional. Afrikan people are people who genetically and phenotypically originate from Afrika. Genetically these people are Afrikan, this is biological fact, regardless of the social conditioning surrounding us. This is really something that we should be defining ourselves around, not countering to ethnocentric and racist behaviour. Moulding yourself around your enemies is always a good way to poison yourself, you aren’t in complete control. Biology is part of science it is part of reality something that can’t be socially rearranged. Claiming there is no race within humanity ignore the fact geographical race is an alternative term for subspecies, in fact this term has never been rescinded fully in genetic biology. Race does not and has never been another term for species, this is a lie promoted by mainstream society.
There are mixed people in Afrika, who originate from admixture, an admixture can appear anywhere on the planet therefore has no homeland. Their physical appearance wasn’t created to due to physical environmental origin or degenerative, atrophy mutations. There are Afrikans in Afrika with a handful non-black ancestor just like many in the Americas. There were Eurasian traders in important West Afrikan cities several centuries ago, there were offspring from European colonists, there was incursions south of Sahara by white and mixed Arabs hundreds of years ago. None of this is new. Genetically having one or two non-Afrikan ancestors from 200 of years ago doesn’t make someone multiracial. Genetically having scores of non-black ancestors scattered across the both the matrilineal and patrilineal lines will create a similar phenotype regardless of place of origin. The coloured people of South Afrika, ‘light skin’ people in the USA, both much older groups than a mulatto born today in Germany or Switzerland are all examples. Similar gene expression will result in a similar phenotypical appearance regardless of where people are born. Grasp on reality, accurate history.
Colin Kaepernick and Nessa Diab. Colin Kaepernick is a mulatto American footballer, birthed from a white female. Nessa, his girlfriend is a multiracial Egyptian; a people who are a product of millenniums of migrations and invasions. Many people have commented that they could be brother and sister based on gene expression.
Vincent and Carla Kompany. A married couple, Vincent is a Belgian footballer born to a Congolese father and Belgian mother, his wife is a British-born multiracial of Caribbean and British heritage. Without the commentary, I have just given they could have passed for a Dominican couple.
Creating self-identity based on reacting fails to look at reality as a whole. Ones genetic origins, hence phenotype, ones ancestral home should be factored in. Regardless of how the people who live there now treat you, YOUR OWN ancestors came from there, those ancestors own families shed tears for them when they went into enslavement. Casting off your own identity in reaction to rejection by modern-day negroes from the motherland ignored that reality. This also ignores the fact that these nations such as Nigeria, South Afrika, Uganda, Angola etc. were founded by Europeans so even those people don’t actually have true ethnic identities. Unlike those of us from the Americas, they have no biological backing behind claiming those titles. This resulted in many Afrikans trying to be accepted by Arabs, Europeans, mulattoes and other non-blacks born on the continent.
Nigeria for example, a nation which many claim pride in, is actually a hotbed of ethnic tensions due to its non-ethnically designated perimeters. Tribes have a truer impact than nationality. Demonstrating in countries immigrated the mostly Islamic ethnicities such as the Hausa and Fulani expatriating to Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf states, Igbos who are largely Christianised primarily migrate to the USA then Europe and the Yoruba mainly move to the Britain. The people Afrika were subsequently colonised by the same Europeans after the racial enslavement period closed. They come over to Western Europe, North America and East/Southeast Asia today speaking forms of English, French, Portuguese, Arabic etc. Most view Afrikan ancestral religions, which both of our ancestors believed in, as satanic now due to Abrahamic religions. Many have kids that can’t even speak their own languages.
The trouble is that many London Yorubas have neglected to pass their traditions on to their children. A few insist on Yoruba being spoken at home, but many have given up the struggle of teaching Yoruba to unenthusiastic children, and English has become the family language.
True, they take their children home on holidays; true, a few surreptitiously slaughter chickens for the deities in their back yards. But basically Yoruba culture and language, as known in Nigeria, are on a steep decline.
Dubi Imevbore, an expert on Yoruba language, deeply regrets this.
He says that if a language dies, so does the human spirit. A people without a culture will lose their self respect, even go mad.’
This is from a 2005 article about Peckham, the neighbourhood with the highest concentration of black people in London. The district is working class and is home to an older prominent Afrikan Caribbean population but Afrikans have been entrenched since the late-80’s. Peckham is often ascribed as a mix of Kingston, Lagos and Accra by social commentators. It is a neighbourhood with a high ratio of social housing, child poverty, low income wages and a major gang problem. The Westernisation of the Afrikan identity is the issue here. Many people, particularly Americans, who have had little contact with young, westernised Continental Afrikans seem to think that these people are not affected or shouldn’t be by European propaganda. The UK, specifically Greater London and Manchester, encapsulate Continental Afrikans taking on a race-centric and not ethnocentric behaviours and ideologies. This is due to westernisation (culture) which causes race to become the primary social divider versus ethnicity as black people aren’t the dominant inhabitants or majority of the society. Many 1st and 2nd generation Afrikans are rejected themselves by people from where their parents and grandparents come from due to this process. As they get cut-off from Afrika itself, they become increasingly divergent from their countries of origin as they do not wire funds to the countries of origin and are not welcome upon arrival.
Another impact of the European colonisation of Afrikans in the motherland was the creation of powerful non-representative multiracial classes birthed by political leaders across Afrika. An example is the Khama family in Botswana. The Kharmas are now a multiracial family, who look very similar to the multiracials of Latin America, it is also a based of AFRICOM for the USA, this has helped their infrastructure and is artificially kept stable by taking on a significant amount of aid from the West.
Seretse Khama and Ruth Khama. Seretse is the original sellout of Botswana, a king of the Bamangwato people a substantial tribe in Botswana. Ruth was a bank clerk in London, since when does royalty marry ordinary people much less foreigners of a different race?
His son, Ian Khama, current president of Botswana.
Tshekedi Khama, another child of Seretse and his family, he is a minister of Botswana. It is disgusting that whites and don’t see a problem with an Afrikan tribe, an Afrikan nation controlled by non-Afrikans. For those who claim race isn’t real, well what is this? But this also reveals a disturbing truth hidden by many blacks, many don’t have a problem with their own descendants not been black yet demand to speak on and control the fate of people whose descendants will be.
This is, in fact, a case of two brain dead groups or black people knocking heads. Many Afrikans and Afro-Caribbean immigrants value Europeans and their culture, that is why they disrespect other blacks, this includes those in their own countries. Unlike other immigrants black ones seem to not bother with developing their own country’s infrastructure, they are thankful of whites, and many aren’t even able or interested in keeping their own culture. With this in mind, why would these type of people try to fix messed up black neighbourhoods and communities in a country which isn’t even their own?
Shunning your own ancestor’s identity due to not been accepted by some of these people is problematic as these people themselves have patently undergone a brainwashing process. Seeking conformation from other brainwashed people exposes one of the numerous fictitious worldviews of many blacks in the Americas. Continental Afrikans are not entirely untouched; a group who ‘should know better’, in fact, evidence suggests the current culture exhibited is to the contrary, Afrikans from the Americas are not all feeble-minded, Europeanised individuals. Identity should be rooted in the real world, not in preconceived, canned notions and thought processes.
