Re: Out of Africa
In Response To: Out of Africa ()

"Who are you to say these things to us?" "You do not know who I am from what I say to you. Rather, you have become like the Jewish people, for they love the tree but hate its fruit, or they love the fruit but hate the tree." This is the gospel according to Thomas who was Jesus' brother. If Jesus was alive today he would substitute "the Jewish people" for all non-black peoples.

Now, I read what you had typed and it was all quite a but interesting. And then I came to this last line and I am to wonder how anyone could make such a gross generalization of so many different types of peoples; not only the generalization that all black peoples inherently appreciate both the tree and the fruit, but that all the other peoples somehow only appreciate one or the other. I am most perplexed by this. Generalizations may be made, yes, but we all know from our HERitage and HIStory how dangerous these can be.
