Indigenous Caribbean Network

"God's chosen people (blond, blue eyed) were here in North America before the Indians. Our scriptures teach the truth. They came here first and some of them went south, both literally AND figuratively. They were sent south by God because they became disintegrated people, so God punished them and that is who the Mayan people are, disintegrated people." ~my neighbor said this in front of my son (pictured above) just before he left my house on noche buena.

I interrupted with, "Ok, that is enough. I have taken in just about enough of that." I followed up about 15 minutes later with a serious talk about racism to my son.

I have arrived in the USA after a serious financial crisis and on the eve of the election of Obama. It has been clear to me that racism in the USA is on the rise. I believe it is the increased competition for resources elevating the issue. No longer are people content with the old standard, "I am not racist, I am color blind." Essentially, I don’t see your color, so can't we just all be white?? Why is it that we have not learned from our past mistakes?

When will we learn to acknowledge and respect each other as part of the HUMAN race, a rich tapestry of culture and COLORS?

This 2009, celebrate our differences and make them a place where we can come together in peace and luv.

I challenge all of you to face these moments with peace and strength from within so that we are not drawn in to the violence. Stand strong, with hope and dignity.

Your sister~c

Wepa!!. There was alot of posting done since I last.

I thought some one would have comment on some of my post but that ok, LOL......

Morocans are arabs. Julio eglesia and antonio banderas are arabs and or have arab admixture. There is no dought about it. Native american and asians are considered by anthropolgist mongliods. I met tainray and i am not here to deffent his comment or yours but to clarify to you that anthropolgy speaking ray would be considered a mongloids. So if you want to deny his taino roots call him an asian because that the closest thing to his race. But he in no way is a arab.
Samuel, I wanst confiming or denying your ancestory. I was just stating that I met ray and the above was what I noiticed when I met him.

I, for one, feel this is a good time to take a deep breath, think of all of the ancestors that are watching our actions, listening to our words, and take her advise deeply into our hearts, NOW!

Believe me brother I will not waste my time with that Arihuna who learned my language but then says he's not Taino. I will not allow people to lie about our Holocaust. I will be like Hatuey who was burned alive and did not convert

. The ancestors will know me when I reach Coabay, they will know I fought for them with no agenda for myself. I have no agenda but Taino, I will fight for my people hasta la muerte.

With that being said I apologize to the rest of the ning members but know My Macana is here for your defense if any body trys to lie about who did what to our people.

Unfortunately this is true for many of us...
Samuel, Many african american from the USA have a very high european admixture. We all know that there ancestors were raped by the european slave owners. Guess what. They dont claim that ancestory. We are the only people in the world that claim the ancestors that raped our great grandmother many genaration back. We need to learn from our african american brother from the USA. Notice I say from the USA cause there are african in other part of this conintne who are african american. We taino are are native american cause we belong to the western hemisphere.
Lets say there dna confirms they are 60% african and 40% european they claim african. But we could be 75% native american and 25% european. Guess what we do. We negate the native american and acknowlege the european.
WOW, I disagree. Why should they acknowlege the ancestory that raped they grandma.

Brother I hope you dont think I am attacking you but I strongly disagree with that statment. I know of no black person who will acknowlege that part of there ancestory. Thats like a slap on the face of there ancestors.
Keep in mind that many present day taino have less european admxiture than some of the USA african american.

You right present deccendans are not at fault for the crimes of there ancestors.

But were we both differ is that I acknowlge no european admixture. Do I have it probably. Do I care for it. Not all

But thats the great thing that we can both have diffrent opinions.
