Land For Sale

I’ve gotten a few emails about buying land, where to start, how much, etc…Black Family, now is the time to buy land before it’s too late. Ghana is a great place to start looking. Also, the less “popular” islands, like Nevis or Turks and Caicos, may be a great start. 

Island living is slow. If you are a get-up-and-go kind of person, then island life may take a while for you to get adjusted. The air is clean, the soil is rich and fertile and the seafood is plentiful. If you are somewhat independent and can build, fish, farm, cook, sew, teach, have masonry skills or any other life skill, you can live reasonably well for little money. My cousin just came back from looking in on his property and told me that the Asians have taken over large parts of the “tourist-y areas” and are building more and more Asian companies locking the indigenous peoples out of jobs. Corner stores and restaurants are popping up but we are not the owners. This is a travesty. We must do something.

Obama’s departure from the White House will be a point of no return for Africans. Whites, who are being lead to believe that blacks are getting “something for free”, will seek revenge when Obama is no longer a puppet of the Big Bankers. Unemployment will skyrocket even further and I predict an increase in hate crimes. Not one group will come to our aid.

I’ve done some research and found some info for you. Please discuss this privately with like-minded people who share your ideas and dreams. Tip: Gather other blacks who wish to “drop out from the system” and buy land TOGETHER and start your own community like what I’m doing with Sankofa. It doesn’t have to be a large group but it does have to include people who share your ideas and dreams.

Tip: Your group should include:

tradesmen/tradeswomen

farmers/ farmhands/ gardeners

educators

medical people

Spiritual advisers

And what I like to call The Glue. What’s “the glue?” Everyday men and women who are willing and able to babysit, make baskets, sew, cook, harvest crops, wash clothes, protect us from intruders, etc….There are no small roles in a black community. We all must function together as one cohesive entity. Here’s two websites. Look them over and call for more information. Please remember to discuss matters privately IN PERSON WITHOUT YOUR CELL PHONES.

One last thing, Many islands/African countries have group tours where you can travel relatively safely and alone. There are plenty of websites where you can do research and pick a region that best suits you. Please utilize the internet and consider speaking with a travel agent for your search. Use the currency converter to figure out how much AmeriKlan dollars you’ll need to buy land overseas.

Wilson’s Post

Negress: “do you like being black? You are from Africa, right?”

Wilson: I have no problem being black and yes I am from Africa.

Thanks for the food for thought. A lot to think about, I can’t say I have any answers to these problems I personally face.

I think you should do a post on the main divisions of blackness because let us face the truth, unless you are blind we aren’t all the same. Things that I have heard being said over and over and yet no one really ever talks about it on the blogosphere:

Black americans look down on black africans.
Black islanders – carribbean, look down on black africans.
There is huge divisions between how all these see each other.

The word here is superiority where in the hierarchy of all this, we have black americans thinking they are the most superior, followed by islanders, then the usual africans at the bottom. This is the truth out there. There is a huge carribean population in Britain and most Africans I know say the same stuff, family and african friends in america say black americans try and distance themselves from black africans etc, that they look down upon us.

You can search this stuff up online and see some people are talking about it:

Personally, I might be black but I ain’t blind enough to think we are all in the same boat because some of us think they are better and can define what being black is to the extent that they deny it on others who are clearly black as well.

You come to africa and people see you are an islander or black american, they’ll treat you with extra hospitality, go to the islands or america and they see you are black african, they treat you with a dash of resentment. What is going on here?? The thing here is that there is enough black africans saying this that it isn’t just something made up but might actually hint at something greater hiding in the shadows.

Anyways, I think this would make an interesting discussion.

******************************************************************************************************

For those of you that are not up to speed, Wilson wrote an interesting comment on Open Discussion #4 regarding My “Countering White Supremacy Post.” Please read the exchanges between us to get a better understand of what’s happening here.

Wilson, since this post is about you, may I relay some advise from a very wise man:

If you do not understand White Supremacy (Racism)-what it is, and how it works-everything else that you understand will only confuse you. Neely Fuller Jr.

The tension between Blacks throughout the diaspora is caused by white people. 

Any thoughts to help Wilson understand that black people are not at the crux of his issues?

Hey Mon!

Are you brown? Are you from the islands? Do you have an accent?

If so, most AmeriKlans think you’re Jamaican.

Since ignorance and misinformation is the foundation of AmeriKlan values, they tend to group all islanders with an accent into the ganja-smoking, Rastafarian, curry-eating Jamaican Creole. Since the Caribbean Islands make up countries from Puerto Rico to Grenada to Haiti to Nevis, and its inhabitants speak French, English, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese and broken Afrikaans, it’s absurd to think islanders speak, look and act like him:

In fact, according to my cousins and aunties, the Caribbean and Africa is looking more like this:

Ignorance is such a terrible disease. It actually hurts other countries and their culture and customs when they are lumped into one monolithic category. And the stereotype of the machete-carrying black man who chews raw sugar cane and has 15 jobs is quite tired. Remember this:

*giggles*

Of course it doesn’t help the stereotype that perhaps our most famous and influential leader was from Jamaica:

And our new track legend:

And one of the few island movies for families:

Why do you think this fallacy exists?

And moreover, do you think it fuels the petty animosity that islanders have against each other?

The Hispanic Fallacy

When I first heard the term “Hispanic” , I said, what’s that?

Then I looked it up and found this:

Wikipedia Definition:

The term Hispanic was first adopted by the United States government in the early 1970s, during the administration of Richard Nixon,[35] and has since been used in local and federal employment, mass media, academia, and business market research. It has been used in the U.S. Census since 1980.[36] Because of the popularity of “Latino” in the western portion of the United States, the government adopted this term as well in 1997, and used it in the 2000 census.[5][6]

  • Although a large majority of Hispanic and Latino Americans have Spanish ancestry, most are not of direct, ‘from-Spain-to-the-U.S.’ Spanish descent; many are not primarily of Spanish descent; and some are not of Spanish descent at all.

Neither term refers to race, as a person of Latino or Hispanic origin can be of any race.[6][37] The U.S. Government has defined Hispanic or Latino persons as being “persons who trace their origin [to] . . . Central and South America, and other Spanish cultures.”.[5] The Census Bureau’s 2010 census form did not provide a definition of the terms Latino or Hispanic, instead allowing respondents to self-define whether they were Latino or Hispanic and then identify their specific country or place of origin.

Truthbetold’s Definition:

An African who can speak any of the Romance Languages.

The coined term “Hispanic” was created by the AmeriKlan government to persuade Africans who hated themselves through the indoctrination of a supremacist mindset to ignore their true origin and join the process of “Whitification.” By distancing yourself from who and what you are, and let me say….ANY Hispanic reading this that grows angry with me…LEARN YOUR HISTORY, you obtain honorary membership in the white club: And accrue privilege through skin colour. When I hear the hordes of Africans who come from Puerto Rico, Columbia and Brazil who cry and protest with righteous indignation that they are European, I laugh and snicker at the absurdity. I remember this conversation I had with a Peruvian, who was darker than me, on his race:

Me: Soooo….what race are you?

Him: Peruvian.

Me: Ummm….Peruvian is an ethnicity. What race are you?

Him: Hispanic.

Me: ok…there’s no such thing.

Him: Why are you badgering me! I’m Mestizo.

Me: So is my brother! I’m an Island Creole myself. But we’re still African.

Him: Leave me alone!

See? The denial is perhaps strongest with those who know exactly where they come from, like Italians/Sicilians: And those who wish desperately that they could forget. Like him: But don’t be too angry with them, my brothers and sisters. AmeriKlan has infected all of us into thinking that blackness is evil and destructive. That’s why the very definition of the word “black” in the dictionary, which a white man wrote, edited and published, is written to such extremes.

By brainwashing the Romance-speaking Negroes into believing that they too are “above” their own ancestry, they create infighting within their own culture. Colourism and prejudice between the Islanders run rampant…yes, I’m talking to you Dominicans and Puerto Ricans, Haitians (some Haitians speak Spanish-Creole) and Cubans…and forces them into the same sick cycle that light-skinned and dark-skinned/ good-hair and bad-hair blacks face. This subtle and political tool of war is very efficient and works like a charm. It also perpetuates my post entitled “The Plan”. Latin-speaking Africans are the fastest growing “minority” in this country. The government gives immigrants opportunities, like grants to start their own businesses, with the promise of joining the “white club” in exchange for becoming more AmeriKlanized. Ever wonder why the U.S. Census changes every decade or so? And more races are added, grouped together or simply omitted? But…Black/African/Negro STILL REMAINS THE SAME? Hmmm…

And for the record…Ms. Cameron Diaz, if you happen to be reading this… these people are the Original Blondes: And Original Blues:
