I say to my people whenever having relations (especially marriage and having children), with blacks who's ancestry were direct victims of slavery, be sure they still recognise themselves as African for two reasons. 1. Any people who can go through that journey then look at Africa today and see themselves tells you they identify with something deeper than looks and money. 2. More important than anything else it tells you their spirit was never, will never and can never be broken. Mama Africa!!!
