trying to resist... So are we to sacrifice Identity, Community, and Solidarity, for the sake of global integration and assimilation. The Black population would be four times larger had we NOT assimilated into Caucasian and Arabian colonialism and taken on their religous and cultural identity. What purpose does expansion serve if OUR agenda, and history is overridden, and white-washed? What is expansion but conceding to opprressive colonialism?

I do not know what the basis of asserting that the Black population would be 4x larger than it is now. Be that as it may, I think that it is a romantic notion to believe that one can go back in time.

God is all... noun, verb, and adjective. The description I believe works best is that of a man walking on a path. God is the man, the path, and the action of walking. See above. The word "who" implies a singularity. I don't believe this applies to God. The Tao Te Ching describes the Tao (translation: Path) as empty and full.
