Racist acts of colonialism and slavery have successfully made many of US as African-Americans and people of color, ignorantly despise and embarrassed by our home land of origin. Malcolm X made a profound statement.
“You can’t hate the roots of the tree without ending up hating the tree. You can’t hate your origin without ending up hating yourself. You can’t hate the land, your motherland, the place that you come from, and we can’t hate Africa without ending up hating ourselves. The Black man in the Western Hemisphere—North America, Central America, South America, and in the Caribbean—is the best example of how one can be made, skillfully, to hate himself that you can find anywhere on this earth.”
If you have no interest at all in reconnecting to Africa nor concern for its struggle, success, or failure understand its by design. The mission of racism white supremacy has been accomplished in your life!
I was deeply moved when I watched the video below. Listen to the first ten minutes of this video (again at 18 mins. in) and you will see one example of the importance of knowing where you come from and reconnecting with home. The visceral and self-knowledge benefits waiting for us to tap into are literally endless!!!! Be open to reconnecting in your own way. Our ancestors are waiting to rejoice. If you are already open, I give thanks, let’s do our part to share the significant beauty and richness of our home.
Thank you so much for reading.
