peace and hotep,
errol f. hosein, those observations are not mine but i am in much agreement withe them. likewise i take my views on race from j.a. roger's "Sex and Race: Negro - Caucasian Mixing in All Ages and Lands". he is also the author of "From Superman to Man; World's Great Men of Color; NATURE KNOWS NO COLOR-LINE, etc. :
"Racial doctrines as they exist today negate intelligence. Indeed they furnish a paradox that exceeds the extravagances of Gilbert and Sullivan.
For instance, we had the great dictators, Hitler and Mussolini, openly saying that 'race' is a fraud but cynically using it to unite their gullible followers. At the same time the two great democratic nations, Britain and America, while condemning Fascist and Nazi doctrines, and proclaiming equal justice for all were using 'race' as a fetish to keep their own citizens and subjects divided. White people were set against black peoples by the BOGEY OF MISCEGENATION.
The purpose of this book, therefore, is to see what and what have gone into the make-up of this fearsome CREATURE.
We shall see that mankind began as a single family; that the family circle widened and widened until it broke into segments, and with that came the illusion that the segments were no longer parts of the circle. But thanks to mechanical progress and the spread of knowledge the segments are coming together again; the various ends are being united; the cycle is being completed; and a single understanding family is once more being formed. already among men of goodwill in many parts of the world this understanding, this sense of unity, exists.
The second world war began as a fire set by Fascist looters in a black neighborhood (Ethiopia) which then spread int the white one (Europe) where they and the Nazis had more to loot.
Racial understanding, racial sympathy, is the key to permanent WORLD PEACE."---J. A. Rogers forword to 'Sex and Race'vol.I
errol f. hosein, when you say, 'in the u.s, it would be safe to say that the majority of people labelled as "black" are actually the product of interacial (black and white) liasons dating back to slavery.' please remember that africans in the amoricas are constantly re-defining themselve. especially the ones denied knowledge of themselves. from nigger, negroe, black etc to african amorican, all of our titles were reactions to 'white' pseudo-supremacy /racism. the people referred to as 'black'/non-white are labeled as such by people who classify themselves as 'white'. the notion of 'race' is utilized by a small 'white' group(minority) in an attempt to overcompensate for inadequacies in number and color.
errol f. hosein, for the sake of clarity i accept that the hueman family is essentially african in origin. the same observation for 'a destiny in jeopardy' can be made for miseducated people who are as classified 'white trash' by people who classify themselves as 'white' as well. because no one has the right to throw any person away.
for other labeles for africans in amorica, see link.
