“The UN General Assembly proclaimed 2015-2024 as the International Decade for People of #African Descent (resolution 68/237) citing the need to strengthen national, regional and international cooperation in relation to the full enjoyment of economic, social, cultural, civil and political rights by people of African descent, and their full and equal participation in all aspects of society.”
In this video, Queen Quet of the Gullah/Geechee Nation discusses the origins of Watch Night and other very important topics for #peopleofcolor.
I am currently in the process of dissecting this UN proclamation (http://www.un.org/…/africandescen…/pdf/A.RES.69.16_IDPAD.pdf) because I honestly do not trust anything anymore — perhaps it is a way to fish us all out. So far it just seems like a tool for funding festivals on european renditions of black history. I will tell you this. Based on my Spirit/Ancestor led studies, racism goes FAAAAAAR back before the white man set foot in this land. When I was a child, I always wondered why indians would act as scouts against other indians. Deep in the history of Turtle Island (America) black skinned folks, natives, African-exports via canoe, slaves, etc., have been discriminated against by whites and lighter-skinned, straight-haired indians alike. This is why there are Black Seminoles and White Seminoles. Black tribes and white tribes. It is why spanish explorers classified some indian tribes as ‘good-looking’ and some as plain ole ugly. There is always some sort of separation. I have NO clue, what it is about dark brown skin, locs, wooly hair, etc., that people of other colors hate. Perhaps it has to do with torture from our Annunaki forefathers and foremothers. We are no worse than any other tribe or race. They are no better than us.
In any case, I just want to get along with the rest of the world and I think many people of African descent, want the same thing. Make no mistake, EVEN THOUGH BLACKS CAME FROM AFRICA, EVERYONE DID, AND MOST BLACKS CAME TO TURTLE ISLAND (AMERICA) ON OUR OWN AND WERE HERE WHEN THE WHITE MAN ARRIVED. THAT IS HOW SO MANY PEOPLE GOT HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE BECAUSE IT WAS NOT FEASIBLE TO GET HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS TO MILLIONS OF SLAVES TO AMERICA ON THOSE SHIPS UNDER THOSE CONDITIONS. IMPOSSIBLE!!!!
We were already here, already being sold out and discriminated against, however we still rise as sons and daughers of the sun. I have read translated notes from the journeys of Ponce de Leon where certain indians complained about other indians harrassing them and Ponce lead a group of soldiers against them. The Muskogees or Miccasukees were darker indians that were named by the spaniards. Look up the Portuguese translation of the word ‘ugly’. Cusseta, AL is named after Cushites, get it, Cushetta. Moreland is a derivative of Moor Land or the Land where people who look like moorish blacks came to after the Moors were extinguished from Spain. We’ve been in Moor Land and on Moreland Ave. for a long time. The New America owes me and my family. No. This is not a hand out. This is retribution for what was stolen from my ancestors. I am not racist. I am truthful. Actually, what we really need is a bunch of land and funds to set up our own country (on Turtle Island) because this thing has been going on since the Pharoahs of Kemet and we have basically already educated ourselves with regard to our histories because there is not just ONE black group. There are many. Now we need to establish our own………our own everything.
The UN is leaving implementation of this up to the Southern States that benefited from the so-called transatlantic slave-trade where maybe 10% of black americans came from. Leaving this up to southern states whose people still wave the confederate flag. Okay. If Switzerland, Europe and their UN are not going to pay back what the really owe, it is a waste of time.
