Don't get mad at me because ya'll don't know what ya'll talking about.
Blindly repeating things without even trying to understand them.
It's that little face ""that tells the real story. It's the prideful attitude that you think you know and others are ignorant. uh-huh.
Nothing prideful at all.
I haven't dismissed any perspective, on the contrary I've attempted to directly engage it. This is why I asked first "what are you basing this on?"
I don't now, nor have I ever claimed to be an expert in this area. But if its going to be discussed, lets be accurate with events and their context.
Complete emotionalism. How easily we dismiss other people's perspectives based on our own set of 'facts' rather than exploring the information they present. The exploration of the Arab slave trade is an issue that has been around in the African American circles for 40 years or more. Imagine how much longer it has been going around in the African intellectual world? But hardly anyone brings those issues to light with the exception of a few Afrocentric scholars who have been and studied in the motherland...
Oh I completely agree.
You want to say that you have no pride. You happen to know more than others who get mad at you because you know best through your brand name religion. You've got the facts, right? Others are ignorant but you kniw. And you have no pride. Does your little smiley face have pride? No way, right?! Then you say, “show and prove”. Someone else asked you “show and prove” that someone named Yakub genetically invented white people. You did not “show and prove” the scientific documentation. You cannot fulfill your own motto. Listen up, here’s a cool Islamic story. A wise man asked who was greater Mahomet or the celebrated teacher Betsami. Mahomet said no one had known Allah as he should be known and further said that God’s mercy was infinite. Betsami said he fully knew Allah and that Allah resided within him. Betsami was a know–it-all. That is a/k/a ego. His cup was filled with partial knowledge. His ears were blocked.He "knew". His realization was incomplete, a fantasy, because he thought he had it down. He claimed to have the answers. He may have been a boring close-minded guy to be around. Mahomet understood that God was infinite. His mind and heart was open to the infinitude of Allah. Who was greater?
