March into Blackness- APPRECIATION. PRIDE. RESPECT.
As I journey further into understanding African heritage and the distinction that Black American culture poses against the greatness of African capabilities, I have realized that there is a positivity drought amongst American perception. However, I am here to break up the monotony of SAD, OPRESSIVE, imagery, in regard to African BLACKNESS, even in our own sub consciousness.
This week on LCP we are celebrating the beauty of Mental, Spiritual, and Physical BLACKNESS! It is time to praise the mind, beauty, resilience of melanin! It is time to understand the mental capacities and intellectual and artistic greatness of BLACKNESS.
Can you imagine what life would be like for Africans in America, if we actually knew our greatness? If we actually understood the concept of being a unified village, what would our communities be like?
If we understood that our ancestors were brilliant, colonized, self governing people, whom were scientists, doctors, lawyers, chemist, excellent farmers and miners, etc; before they were stolen and taken as slaves, what would we think of ourselves? Our women were highly reverenced, cherished, and respected as the givers of life. We are respected in our homes and in society. Women had their own means and ways of conducting businesses. Some of our women we rulers and warriors, and actually led their troops in battle. How much different would the worlds perception of Bla-frican women be? What if we saw our men for what they truly represent? As servant leaders, providers, organizers, etc. What if the sight of intellectual, African, masculinity was a bigger turn on than wealth? What if a greater representation of our men, rising to this existence was more widely seen, than the propaganda? What if we actually knew the blueprint to true African living, would we APPRECIATE it? Would we RESPECT it? Would we try to understand African spirituality? Would we dare do our own research with a broad and open mind? Would we take PRIDE in what we discover through journeying through our roots?
