Reply to "The Best Environment for the Development of Our Potential...."

when i said africans in america, i was being specfic to those of us in the united state, the diaspora also includes the US , i should have said the rest of the diaspora.I dont believe we are ethnically different, we just dont know who we are.like malcom said, "a cat can have kittens in a oven, it doesnt make the m biscuits" I just think we have so much more in common that differences. I think, even in our ignorance, we are more african than we will ever be american.when we were on the plantations as slaves the house negro loved the master more than he loved himself, anything that happened to the master it was as if it happened to the house negro, then you got them field negros ,they hated the master, anytime the master got sick they would pray he died, if his house caught on fire they wanted it to burn down. When it was time to run the field negro was ready he knew any place was better than the plantation. but not the house negro , he would say where would i eat like i eat now, wear the good cloths like i have now, master been good to us. you see the house negro only was concerned about his status not the masses of black people even though they suffered. ate the worst food lived in the worst quarters, the house negro was comfortable even if it was on the backs of the masses. We have the exact same situation today with these so called elite blacks ,who look down on the masses because they dont have it like they got it. in actuality its just embarrassing for these uppity negros to admit that the masses are suffering
