WOW
we have some overheated discussions going on here!

Well, I agree with Lily here.

I understand Kola's anger, because I recognise myself in her way of reacting to certain issues.

But like Cynique, I don't like to feel like I am your baby, as I read you said once, that whites come out of your ass too..

This makes me feel again like how men probably used to feel in comparision with women and where for a great deal their fear for women stems from.

In a sense I understand you and your anger about this, and probably all races(except the Aboriginals, but they probably used to be 'African' too, as all continents used to be 1 continent) are a mutated race of the African race, but that happened already looong way ago.

It's something though, that racists can reflect on to bring up more respect for Africans and Blacks in general.

But when saying that everyone comes out of YOUR ass, you create a new hierarchy, that isn't justified either.

Besides, because I believe in reincarnation, the issue of who came out of who is very relative to me.

About SEAL: I did some googling to find out if he really is a racist, but when you first said about him being a hypocrite and hating his mother, I intuitively felt that he was not like that, and maybe he had a bad relationship or was even abused by his mother and disliked her for that reason.

I'm not sure of that offcourse, but apparently he has been abused by his biological father after his Nigerian mother left him behind with his father, because she went back to her country. So, maybe that's why he didn't go to her funeral?
