"First my people must be taught knowledge of self" Actually, no people can be taught 'knowledge of self'. This is classic African paradoxical nonsense. Competence has nothing to do with memory or consciousness. Mr Muhammad is making a plea for introspection to his race to hide their ignorance and make clear the line between races, in this case whites and Africans. In the end he demonstrates that he can not even master the language of the slave owners. Maybe he cut his virtuous education short.
Frederick Douglass is grasping at straws in his attempt to understand power in a white man's world. In Africa all power is violence and he is leading his people to confrontation, with blows if necessary, to take back the power that is rightfully theirs for just being black. How many true tyrants are practising ethnic cleansing in Africa? Blacks never quietly submitted to anything. Trinidad is becoming a welfare state just like America and soon the blacks will be rioting when they equate the lack of hanouts to oppression and some idiot will quote Frederick Douglass again.
Africans do not have a God, a religion, a language with any history or even a history worth mentioning. The Egyptians yes. The Nubians and their ilk, no way. African Americans have been assimilated both physically and culturally and the result is a condition infinitely better for them as a race no matter how much they complain.
Negros will never be truly free because they will never be equal to any other race, unless of course they mix with that race. Bob Marley's father is White. Tiger Wood's mother is Thai. I don't even know if Colin Powell is considered Negro, he is simply American. All the Negro can do is copy, not create. Beating a drum can be considered creative but it doen't contribute anything to society. Science, agriculture, architecture, nothing. They can drive a car but not build one in a million years. Negros will always associate inequality with injustice and seek reparations.
"Judaism, Christianity & Islam are innovations on fragments from the periphery of the African cultural and spiritual system." OK, OK. Everything comes from Africa. More jibberish. Everything must have been stolen from Africa because there is nothing left that resembles a cultural and spiritual system.
No self-esteem, self-respect or self-development? Must be the devil white man forcing us to buy dem espensive Air Jordans. Ironically one race does control the media in the US and indirectly here in Trinidad.. Jews, and their effect is killing the white man as a race and thrives on the servitude of the Black man.
These quotes have little to do with Afro-Trinis because in reality most of them see themselves as Trinis first and Africans secondarily which is the way it is supposed to be, despite the efforts of Americans like Selwyn Cudjoe who try to bring the race war, his reason for existence, to the island. This thread of discussion originated with the observation of the hypocrisy of Sat Maharaj. The man is a hypocrite but calling Hanuman a monkey and talk of sexual unity is ignorant. One Love, with understanding. Bless.
