I am an eclectic mixture of everything. I love to travel, think, and laugh. This blog is a collage of everything I love, like or find interesting. Caribbean born girl raised out in Brooklyn. I love life and I love myself completely.
"The hunting down of our youth in the streets by agents of the state, the bombing of Afrikan neighborhoods and churches, the murder of members of revolutionary and passive Afrikan organizations, the riots against Afrikans before both European wars on the world, the thousands of lynchings and the “retaliations” after real and imagined revolts by our enslaved ancestors as well as the lynchings that still see no end, are but a very, very small number of the examples where acts of terrorism were used to insure our submission to the whim of white supremacy. All these acts testify to a strong history of unwarranted, violent encroachments on peaceful, independent, as well as passive, dependent, Afrikan communities. So it is illogical for us to expect Europeans to allow us to live in an autonomous, independent peace in their midst without our enforcement of our freedom to be Afrikan in a language they can understand. Arguing otherwise makes no historical sense. No people can begin to feel safe in a historical climate of terrorism. Their accumulated frustration and uncertainty about the duration of the siege leads them to want to either seek shelter within (ranging from full assimilation and amalgamation to pluralistic integration) or away from (pluralistic segregation to full separation) their relentless assailants. For those who feel they cannot or should not leave or know that the terror will follow them wherever they go but who refuse to accept a vanquished status, rage and rebellion are natural and necessary characteristics. They know themselves as warriors engaged in a great struggle for the sanity, identity and sovereignty of their people." Mwalimu K. Bomani
