Huemans who have the same mother are siblings.
You and I, gentle reader, are sister and brother siblings because we have one ancestral mother who was named "Lucy," the mother - anthropologically speaking - of all huemanity. So, as the Dakota, Lakota, Nakota Native American Indigenous 'Indians' say, "Mitakuye Oyasin - we are all related."
DNA research supports all of this scientifically* without challenge, so why are so many hueman beings engaged in suppressing/oppressing other hueman beings who are only superficially different from them in color and perhaps culture? (We all bleed red) Answer: gross, on-purpose-miseducation-by-omission. *SLC24A5 - the 'one race' gene
In other words, is it safe to say that because individuals weren't taught -at any level - about their own true identity/ancestry, they are doomed to live out their lives maltreating people who are physically related to them but raised and conditioned by different cultures and who might wear skins of observable melanin?
What is the definition of 'insanity?' (It's the inability or unwillingness to recognize or acknowledge 'reality'). According to this definition - in this country - (and actually world wide), insanity reigns! Thus it should be a serious concern about all those folk who 'can't handle the truth' - whatever color they may be.
This is why a symptom of that insanity - the stubborn refusal of this country's 'education' system to teach the truth about the Black African heritage of all huemans and the deleterious effects of that studied, powerful purposeful omission - has compelled me to take up 'verbal arms' to ensure that my siblings are continuously informed about and warned of the damaging-to-individuals theft of the knowledge of their true identity.
How cruel is it to continue to allow such heinous lying-by-omission to warp the thinking of millions of multi-hued students, which causes such dysfunctional 'achilles heel' thinking and misbehavior in so many huemans when it comes to their interaction with others who are different from them in culture and color?
How utterly hypocritical, disingenuous and counterproductive is it for the political, religious, educational and corporate institutional 'movers and shakers' to continue to ignore, suppress or avoid - as they prate about building 'a progressive' society - the reality of such an egregiously-grave theft, acting as though it's 'business as usual,' 'the status quo of (untreated) racism/colorism isn't so important - hardly deserves mentioning' at every opportunity and will eventually 'just go away' without the direct involvement of every single individual not only in this country but in every society in the world!
How indescribably ludicrous are those 'liberal' pretenders to speak of 'including' (especially during that piteously gratuitous 'Black' History month) their versions of 'Black' history into their 'white western-oriented history.' That's like having a child tell its parents, "I'm gonna' include you!"
As with any aberrational thinking, such institutional, pandemic racism/colorism urgently requires detection and intervention; one can't change such ill health without first determining the levels of the infection within the individual and this can't be done merely by passing legislation against colorist behavior and then just sitting back and wishing the problem away. Untreated racism/colorism is a pervasive, thorny problem and requires earnest and continuous follow up.
One of the tools necessary for involving individuals who would like to know-and deserve knowing -how damaged they've been by being - unknown to themselves - maleducated about their own ancestry/identity, is the Racism/Colorism Quotient Test Program of the Institute for "Interracial" Harmony, Incorporated, whose Motto is: "Prejudice Is Learned - It Can Be Unlearned," including the used as the first step in raising the consciousness of the individual in a non-threatening arena as to her/his colorist thinking and possible consequent dysfunctional behavior.
My sisters and brothers, it is way past time to purposely end the 'Family Dysfunction' in this racist/colorist world. We must determinedly put an end to allowing those greedy D.C wardogs to miseducate our progeny to make it easier to send them off to invasions and wars against their very own siblings.
