Heart Friendships

I found this insight about Africans deeply interesting. I, myself, have not yet visited Africa, but I have a good friend who goes there all the time, and he makes the same observations – Africans are generous, good and trusting people. When Africans leave our Motherland and migrate to the Caucasian countries, they succumb to the Caucasian paradigm and the lethal conditions set up specially for them. I think Black people should definitely stop thinking within the Caucasian paradigm and get to know ourselves. We should stop regurgitating the Caucasian narrative about us, and begin to listen to our own people, our own teachers, our own elders.

The New Blakk

This may sound racist but it is not, i honestly love people… all people, White, Black, Indian, Colored etc and have close friends from all walks of life and all racial and religious sub sets of humanity, but this morning i realized something that in my life, *personal reflection, not a fact or judgement… i have experienced abuse and insults, anger and aggression far more from White, Indian, and Colored people (in that order) and far less from Black people… and blacks are in the majority in this country, South Africa. I think that says alot about African Consciousness!

In fact i struggle to find an incident where a black person was really rude and hurtful towards me. Yes there is crime here and yes you are more likely to be mugged or robbed by a black person, but that has alot more to do with poverty and we all…
