There is no beauty but in relationships.
Nothing cut off by itself is beautiful. Never can things in destructive relationships be beautiful. All beauty is in the creative purpose of our relationships. All ugliness is in the destructive aims of the destroyer's arrangements.
Ayi Kwei Armah in "Two Thousand Seasons Rooted in Slavery", said it was the deliberate plan to dislocate black men and black women from one another and this has been expressed in many ways. The inability of black men and black women to protect one another during enslavement produced feelings of impotence and helplessness on both sides. Men saw their women being beaten and raped by their slave masters and women saw their men being whipped and made to be submissive, made to be less of the man they previously was, also the controlled sexual access that black men and black women had on the plantations, while the slave master had free and anytime access.
Added to this was their inability to protect their children from being slaughtered, beaten and sold has wounded the spirit of the black men and women. Guilt, blame, disloyalty, distrust, shame along with many other negative emotions put a wedge between them. However, there is liberation from this - there must be emancipation from mental slavery and racism.
I have interviewed many persons and I am seeing that their is a profound distrust, even hatred between black men and black women. it has been nursed along not only by racism, but also by an almost deliberate ignorance on the part of black men and women about the true spiritual essence and beauty in having good relationships between themselves.
It is very important that black men are taught and know the importance of learning to respect black females and likewise black females has to be taught and know the importance of respecting the black males. We need now in the black society Elder Councils formed of elder men and women of wisdom who can teach the young black males and females about their sexuality, and the importance of forming scared bonds between themselves that must be preserved.
Young males must be taught how to become a man, and females must be taught the role and functions of being a woman. This Elder Council will play a stabilizing role in the lives of black young males and females and act like an extended family that they can rely on.
We need to help our children and bring them back from the erroneous path that they are taking which can only lead to their destruction. THIS IS THE TIME FOR RESTORATION - NOW, NOW, NOW
