Effeminization of the Black Male Part 2 - The Politics of Black “Homosexual”
Sorry, no. Can’t let this fly.
Homosexuality is just as natural as the sun rising in the East & setting in the West & has been around from the dawn of time. Any religious folk coming out with a “God made Adam & Eve -not Adam & Steve” -well, ask your God why he’s got over 1500 species engaging in Homosexual behaviour. And why theres only one that isn’t intelligent enough to see it as a part of life.
This sort of nit-picking at homosexuality within a certain community or a certain race of people is pure & utter madness. How is it that cultures around the world were able to live in peace with it and accept it among their people -yet us in the here in modern times simply can’t. The Native Americans believe in ‘Two-Spirit’ people, the Polynesians believe in the Fa’afafine, its accepted in Asian culture and believe it or not -homosexuality was prevalent in pre-colonial Africa as well.
You have the Dagara of Burkina Faso, the Swazi people of South Africa or the Azande of Congo & the Dogon as well…
I’m still perplexed as to how anyone can blame another race for homosexuality within their community or among their people.
And I won’t stand for it. Not when I’ve got members of my own family & close friends who are forced to bite their tongue over the arguments made by these pseudo-intellectual preachers who dish out these ignorant lies for the desperate masses.
If there is an #author whose #book I’d definitely read again, it’d definitely be #professor #IvanVanSertima…
This was such a “juicy” read… His style, at times did throw me off a bit, but it’s littered with research and #facts about the #African presence in #SouthAmerica. Demystifying myths behind the #Olmecs, about Africans & #Phoenicians crossing the #Atlantic, genetics, Botanical studies, cultural similarities… I mean, the list goes on…
Just get the book. Professor #VanSertima has written more books, like #BlackWomenInAntiquity, #AfricanPresenceInEarlyEurope… Oh and this book is #TheyCameBeforeColombus.
Remember, Educate Thyself, even if its nothing to do with your background or ethnic origin.
This is the Great Wall of #Eredo found in #WestAfrica’s #Nigeria. At first glance some might go ” #meh”, but this wall is over 160km long and the overall mass of the wall itself is larger than the #GreatPyramid of #Giza itself…
The person responsible for this wall being built? #Queen #Bilikisu. In fact, there are even a few children’s story books out there for you look up.
I really don’t like talking about this topic because its become a bit too #cliché…
Still, like my brethren told me, “there are some things that need to be said”.
From what I’ve come to study, #AncientEgypt is only a small percent of #African history or #blackhistory…
All too often we hear stories about the #Pyramids being built by #Aliens -of course, people who perpetuate this sort of #ignorance would never & could never equate #intelligence with Black / Africans / people of African origin.
It’s much more than just 2.5 tonnes of stone placed on top of one another, in fact its a beautiful concoxion of some of #Astronomy, #Science, #Mathematics & #Architecture. I’d love to explain what I’ve come to know to you, but it’s not my place to do so.
What i find is also slightly depressing that most people don’t know that the country where the most pyramids are found is #Sudan (well over 240 of them!), or that recent archaeological expeditions have found some pyramids in #SouthAfrica too… coz everyone’s focused on arguing over that one topic… “Who built the Pyramids? How & Why?”
“You probably think that we don’t remember #OtaBenga.” - #Lowkey, #Akala’s Knowledge Is Power Mictape Vol 1, ‘Behind My Painted Smile’.
The line that sparked this.
I came across Ota Benga’s story a long time ago and almost totally forgot about it. Hazy memories about the story associated with the name when I heard it again prompted me to revisit his unfortunate lifestory.
It baffles me how a person, let alone a group of people, can feel comfortable with dehumanising another person/people to the point they try reducing them to being portrayed as nothing but #animals…
I won’t go into detail about Ota Benga’s story, all I can say is that this #Congolese #Mbuti #pygmy wasn’t the only #African that was used & abused by the #Louisiana Purchase #Exposition.
And to #lovedones who thought I’ve given up on my #palp coz I’ve been quiet -Neva that. Just buisy with studies.
“Yes, it’s true, I told Madonna to go f*** herself. Do you want to know why?” Dakarai asked. “It’s the same thing every time with these snobby rich Americans. Every once in a while they come to show us their support for the so-called eradication of poverty by adopting a child from a starving family, but they actually do more harm than good. Transracial international adoptions are part of the white savior industrial complex,” Dakarai explained.
Raah, this kid’s got stuff to say! Click the link to hear what he’d like to do to Bono too… lol!
You’re prolly looking at this statue and wondering ‘what on earth this has to do wiv #BlackHistoryMonth…?’
A lot. Like we’ve mentioned before, #BlackHistory is much more than the bias history of #Slavery and certain political figures in the #60s. if its History you want, then it’s #History you’re getting.
This is the well renowned #Ionan/ #Greek #Mathematician whose popular enough to have a #Theorem named after him. Ladies & gents, I give you, #Pythagoras.
The man is hailed in many places as one of the greatest Mathematician of all time, though very few know that he was educated in #Egypt / #AncientEgypt where he was refused entry to any of the many educational temples in the Kingdom-except for one in #Diospolis, which took the poor sod a bloody long time to get in. He was very much influenced by the #African priesthood’s teachings that he’d taken on their customs of not wearing animal hide, not eating beans and striving for absolute #purity even after having to leave Egypt… Who & what brought about his departure? Hahaha! 😄 Why should I give you all the answers? Go on, #EducateThyself. 😉
The name is Jason D'Jehuti, in my mid-20's and I'm London's very own incognito artist, the hoodie behind Peace and Love Propaganda (#palp) art exercise.
I am looking to bring about a positive impact to the art scene through Educational and Inspirational art -plain and simple.
