The writer said I am an American.. A Black American. Period.,,CAN WE TALK ??? (2405 hits)

My people my people there is a foolish man in our mist a black man who says black people in america have no history ,no ties to our mother land AFRICA ,,,
This foolish man has been brainwashed because of a title they have put on black people today calling us ''black american '' I was reading a book where the writer said I am an American.. A Black American. Period.

The writer went on to say ''''' Have Blacks had to fight hard to get access to those rights? Indeed we, as a people have. And our forefathers fought, bled and died in that effort. But I have those rights and I embrace them. I own them and I enjoy them—fully—with every inch of my rich, chocolate brown skin. I honor my African ancestors by claiming full rights to the land on which they bled and died—America.

I invite those American-born Blacks who might be so inclined to stop rebelling against your native land—the land in which you were born.

Look at others who come to this land from other nations. Many of these immigrants work hard to assimilate into that in which you were naturally born. They don American garb and take on American mannerisms as they work hard to capture the American dream. As a native-born American, I and others don't have to assimilate; this is how we dress in this land. And this is how we speak--we speak English here, not ebonics. Most men wear suits and ties to work and women, dresses, skirts or nice pantsuits. If you move to Africa, or India or some other country where another style garb is the norm, it is likely you will adopt the style and lifestyles of that country. But if you were born in America, you don't have to adopt, or assimilate to, the American way-of style, language, manners and public decorum. It is naturally yours. Embrace it. Love it. Succeed in it.
After reading this it made me wonder why not embrace mt black African history because of the power of knowing to was my African ancestors that first brought ,math ,science, into being ,,,life began in Africa and i am African,,,,so i search to find some one who who could relate to how I was feeling and I found .

I found I was not alone,Obama said such arguments do not reflect the views of black Americans who have joined forces over the years with Africans and people from the Caribbean to fight colonialism and poverty. He said black descendants of slaves share more similarities than differences with black immigrants and their children. Obama says his grandfather worked as a servant in Kenya and was called a "house boy" by whites even when he was a middle-aged man. Obama also said, "Some of the patterns of struggle and degradation that blacks here in the United States experienced aren't that different from the colonial experience in the Caribbean or the African continent," "For me the term African-American really does fit," said Obama. "I'm African, I trace half of my heritage to Africa directly and I'm American."

In the 20th century, many black Americans shifted from colored to Negro to black and, most recently, to African-American, sometimes within one generation. "I've had to check several different boxes in my lifetime," said Donna Brazile, former Democratic campaign manager in the 2000 presidential race. "In my birth certificate I'm identified as a Negro. Then I was black. Now I readily check African-American. I have a group of friends and we call ourselves the colored girls sometimes, to remind ourselves that we aren’t too far from that, either." The term African-American has crept steadily into the nation's vocabulary since 1988, when the Rev. Jesse Jackson held a news conference to urge Americans to use it to refer to blacks. "It puts us in our proper historical context," Jackson said then, adding in a recent interview that he still favored the term. "Every ethnic group in this country has a reference to some land base, some historical cultural base. African-Americans have hit that level of cultural maturity."

African-American culture in the United States refers to the cultural contributions of Americans of African descent to the culture of the United States, either as part of or distinct from American culture. The distinct identity of African American culture is rooted in the historical experience of the African American people, including the Middle Passage, and thus the culture retains a distinct identity while at the same time it is enormously influential to American culture as a whole.

It gets deeper as i studied Polls show the number of blacks using the term has steadily increased. In a survey that year conducted by ABC and The Washington Post, 66 percent said they preferred the term black, 22 preferred African-American, 10 percent liked both terms and 2 percent had no opinion. In 2000, the Census Bureau for the first time allowed respondents to check a box that carried the heading African-American next to the term black. In 2003, a poll by the same news organizations found that 48 percent of blacks preferred the term African-American, 35 percent favored black and 17 percent liked both terms. The term has become such a fixture in the political dictionary that many white politicians, including President Bush and Senator John Kerry, his Democratic rival in 2004, favored it in their political speeches. Yet Kerry's wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, who is white, has referred to herself on occasion as an African-American. She was born to Portuguese parents in Mozambique.

Many whites use the term for all blacks. But among blacks there is much less agreement, particularly in places like Maryland where Africans, Haitians and Dominicans mingle in the town's coffee shops, nightclubs and beauty salons, or in neighboring Washington, where the City Council voted this year to include the Ethiopian language Amharic as an official language to accommodate the growing Ethiopian community. Even adherents of African-American acknowledge that shifting demographics have made the term's meaning more unclear. "It's a comfortable term for me personally and for people like me who are of African descent and have been in this nation for a long time," said Michael Lomax, the president of the United Negro College Fund, which raises money for 38 historically black colleges. "But it gets more confusing when you recognize that this nation is full of all kinds of people of African descent." "It's a much richer and more complex variety than when we started asserting that we were African-American," said Lomax, who argues that recent black immigrants from the Caribbean and elsewhere should feel free to use the term.

THE way I see it is like this African American culture is rooted in Africa. It is a blend of chiefly sub-Saharan African and Sahelean cultures. Although slavery greatly restricted the ability of Americans of African descent to practice their cultural traditions, many practices, values, and beliefs survived and over time have modified or blended with European American culture. There are some facets of African American culture that were accentuated by the slavery period. The result is a unique and dynamic culture that has had and continues to have a profound impact on mainstream American culture, as well as the culture of the broader world.

After emancipation, unique African American traditions continued to flourish, as distinctive traditions or radical innovations in music, art, literature, religion, cuisine, and other fields. While for some time sociologists, such as Gunnar Myrdal and Patrick Moynihan, believed that African Americans had lost most cultural ties with Africa, anthropological field research by Melville Herskovits and others demonstrated that there is a continuum of African traditions among Africans of the Diaspora. The greatest influence of African cultural practices on European culture is found below the Mason-Dixon in the American South.

For many years African American culture developed separately from mainstream American culture because of the persistence of racial discrimination in America, as well as African American slave descendants' desire to maintain their own traditions. Today,

WHAT FACE DO YOU SEE WHEN you look at your self when you think about your history what do you think about ,,,,,,can we talk """????

Hello David,

Your blog is nothing more than a passionate and emotional hog-wash not to face the truth that Black Americans are a new race of people.

My claim that Black Americans are a new race of people is base on science. The science is that when the White American slave-masters breed themselves with the first wave of African slaves and continued for 300 years made a new race of people we know today as Black Americans.
What I am saying is science!

Because of the systemic breeding by Whites Black Americans don’t have enough African left in us to be Africans and not enough White in us to be Caucasian and that would scientifically means that Black Americans are a new race of people.

Black Americans have no ties to the African continent because we came into existence on this North American continent in White America’s United States country. Our mother-land is this continent. Soon we will inherit a reasonable and futile portion of this country that will become our country.
White Americans will first find is hard and difficult to accept, but they will and in fact they will be happy to see us finally sovereign free to go at life for ourselves.

The old and ignorant way of thinking is to believe that Black Americans have ties to the African continent. We don’t want to look like Africans and be like Africans. We want to look and be as we are which is a new race of people to soon be in a country of our own.

When God came to me and anointed me as Black American first genuine prophet I was not on the African continent. I was on this North American continent with my Black American people. God knows where to find us. If we were on the African continent then that is where God would have went, but God came here because we Black Americans are here.

The breeding process is something that you all never realized and factored into your thinking and the makes my revelation that we are a new race of people a divine revelation because I got it from God. I would have never realized it myself if God did not show it to me. God communicates with me all the time.

Our name of Black Americans will change once more when we become a sovereign people that our country will have the same name that we will chose to call ourselves.

When I speak I speak using science and that is why I am never wrong!

Harry, I feel foolish even asking you a question, but I will do it anyway. If Black Americans are a new race of people, as you assert time and time again, what is it that makes them a race? Do you define race differently for all people? I mean, if you are going to use the word 'race' then I would assume that other 'races' would share something in common that would make them a race. I believe that the concept of race is rank foolishness, but it is part of the language that surrounds us and infiltrates our consciousness to the point that science, scholarship are beyond our reach. But you subscribe to the notion 100% and so I ask you to answer the question I posed at the beginning of this paragraph. Thank you.

Hello Mr. Curtis,

You asked a very good question. You asked this, “If Black Americans are a new race of people, as you assert time and time again, what is it that makes them a race?”

The simple definition of race is when one group of people shares more in common with each other than they do with another group of people.

For example, plantation slavery Black Americans have in common with each other while White Americans, Chinese Americans and African Americans don’t have the experience of plantation slavery.

Mr. Watley New man,

Since you want scientific proof then I will show you the powers of your bloodline through DNA. DNA can trace back your family history and can show why you have the color skin, eyes, hair, blood type, ethinicity and how much you got of what people you have in you. That is a scientific fact. New man.

More scientific fact has can show you 26 distinct ethnic regions of the world of your ethnic origin That is scientific fact New man.

These DNA tests are so accurate they can match you to mother African origin in real time, you want proof, you got proof. Now come off that high horse, you have been proven wrong Mr. Watllet.

APOLOGIZE to our Sisters and ask for forgiveness yet for your blatant public disrespect for Sister Jen Fed and Sister Mirrael Bride calling them unflattering and degrading names when they share their opinions in an open forum on BIA on the topic “What Image is in Your Mind,” +They too are the links back to mother Africa and must be respected. New man.

Hello Mr. Gray,

You said this, “Since you want scientific proof then I will show you the powers of your bloodline through DNA.”

Yes! Understand DNA. DNA is science and I am all about science.

Then you said this, “DNA can trace back your family history and can show why you have the color skin, eyes, hair, blood type, ethinicity and how much you got of what people you have in you. That is a scientific fact……..”

All that you are telling is what DNA can do, but you are not showing a DNA connection the Black Americans and the Biblical Ham.

Why don’t you show through the genealogy by starting with Noah, then Noah begot Ham and Ham begot until Black Americans comes into the picture?

Hello Mr. Curtis,

You asked this question, “Where is Harry's nation going to be?”

Black America’s country is going to start from the northern boarders of N.C. into the Gulf of Mexico and from the middle of the Mississippi River into the Atlantic Ocean.

Hello Mr. Watley AKA New man,

Why are you running away from the question who is the slave woman?, I say that the slave that you will not call a Black African Black Woman, that is link to Mother Africa where that blood line and DNA was handed down from the children’s of Ham. You ask for scientific proof, here’s some more: Where the white slave masters seed laid eight to nine months in the womb of mother Africa to produce what you call Black American but the slave masters they called the baby of that union “*****” from the day he was born till the day he sold that “***** slave”” off. That is a fact.

More scientific Proof: If you had a child, that child would carry the DNA of both you and the mother and if they that child has children some parts of your DNA would live on in the future long after your death. Just like you are carrying the DNA of your fathers and the fathers before that. New man that is a fact.

So, you started a new BLOG so, you can run away from your outrageous online behavior and bogus statements like “I am the way. No one can come to God unless they come through me. “ Now you are the son of God now?

I am the first Black American genuine black prophet, you sound like another American prophet who had Black followers I know, but I would not drank the cool-aid neither. New man.

I have asked you many times and a few times today to come back to the BLOG "Whose Image is in Your Mind” to APOLOGIZE to our Sisters and ask for forgiveness yet for your blatant public disrespect for Sister Jen Fed and Sister Mirrael Bride calling them unflattering and degrading names when they share their opinions in an open forum on BIA on the topic “What Image is in Your Mind,” +They too are the links back to mother Africa and must be respected, must be protected. But you have played me off like my words to you meant nothing and I believe you will continue such behavior in the future. New man.
