Wah! LLOYD LACY gives a blasting first impression. Being raised in Germany I think of an African American National Socialist as rather funny.. What does the local White Aryan American National Socialist movement say ? Have you heard of Concentration Camps ? Admirer or not Hitler wouldnt have hesitated to put the "Untermenschen" right there. Think of it. I detest nationalism but have to admit that I'm quite more attracted to girls of colour. Well genetically Homo Sapiens developed somewhere in north-east Africa so we're all Africans (yes some of the 1st and 2nd wave of emigrants mixed with cousin neanderthaler) and only recently geneticists proved that the white folks are a mutation of the original coloured ones. Grinnnnn So yes I favour the scientific based thinking that we're all family (incl non coloured ones) and promote it among the discordant African societies to become more unanimous in order to oppose North American and European economic strategies. I consider race as an invented term - by Carl Linne the taxonomist coz he lacked better expression to distinct between alike looking beings to categorize them into their supposed proper place in the tree of life.

Me I'm a proud Mixed African American National Socialist. I admire Hitler and "some" of the things he did for his people and country. I believe in marrying within "people of color" meaning non white including Asians. Thing is African Americans to me are all biracial or mixed. We are a mixed race people. Some of us pass for Native American, Asian, Black, Hispanic and we have family members that do it. Even if you look at pictures of Ancient Africa, we come in all sizes shapes and colors. I believe we are ALL beautiful. And it's time we stop hating on one another and start loving each other more. I feel we are better than most other African Americans because we have survived through all the self hate and bullshit that comes with being black. We have managed to keep our identity and think for ourselves.

There's a really thoughtful magazine/blog called Race-Talk developed by the Kirwan Institute. Really well-written pieces. Just thought I'd share, if anyone ever wants to check out the work they're doing:

oh and i don't consider myself anything but black but i do feel like i have gone through identity crisis growing up culturally.

my mom is from jamaica and so is her whole family. my dad is from trinidad and his mom is from venezuela while his dad is from grenada. i was born here in the US and grew up around a variety of races. to people who aren't black they think i'm african american since i'm from here but to african american's i'm caribbean but to caribbean folk i'm just american. at the same time a lot of the hispanics i come across consider me 'one of them' because my dad's mom is. it's a complex situation.

hello peeps just want to share something i saw on oprah yesterday about tracing roots.

so there is this new show on tv where countless celebrities trace their roots to find out who they are. long story short they showed a few clips of eva longoria (mexican), emmit smith (african american), meryl streep (caucasion) etc...

so it turned out that eva was born in mexico with mexican parents and so forth. but her dna revealed that she is caucasion, african, and japanese....it was also revealed that she is a distant cousin on japanese musician yoyoma according to tests.

emmit smith's ancestry revealed that his ancestors were white and somewhere along the line one of them raped a slave thus bringing forth a biracial child and from then on other blacks were brought into this mix and some generations later bringing well him into the world.

another really cool discovery was that dr oz (muslim) and a famous jewish guy has the same ancestors

there were tons more but those striked me the most....very intriguing.

Tough situation , djc. lotta responsibility to shoulder, teachin kids an everything. They're at foundational stages of development and deserve tha best chance they can get. think its a brave endeavor to try to open eyes to this kind of subject cause most people in general seem to avoid it at almost all costs. Don't know how things go in Pennsylvania but it important if you wanna see the social climate for what it is.
