Learn Who You Are, So That You May Know Who You Are


"Sankofa", a word in the Akan language of Ghana, West Africa, states, "se wo were fi na wosan kofa a yenki" which means, "it is not taboo to go back and fetch what you forgot."

Recently in the media, you may be seeing a myriad of movies such as Django, and now the recent movie "The Butler", amongst a host of other films, coupled with tributes to MLK inundating you with scenes from a time well known to the United States when it was appropriate to hose Africans, as they were swept away, fighting for America's pittance of so-called "freedom". Yes, the U.S. is gifting you with their version of your historical perspective, pounding into your heads the "We shall overcome some day" chant, whereby one never truly gets over the hump; always missing the mark, and never really getting to that point of achievement.

But the true reality is that this is not your lot in life. And this is not where your history began. For sophisticated political reasons, perhaps the U.S. media finds it necessary to bombard you with such an ideology, so that you will ultimately adopt this distorted historical perspective as your own, and forget your authentic truth of who you really are. You have a responsibility to yourself first, in finding out the authenticity of your greatness, then share the knowledge.

So I challenge you, to reach back, and learn who you truly are, so that you may know who you are and act accordingly. Should you select to re-traumatize yourselves with the butler, maid, slave movies, and film clips of Africans being washed down the streets with hoses, recognize that you will always be fixated with pain. For a traumatized people, can not thrive, but rather be stagnated in anger, victimization, hurt and loss.

Know your truth and be the galactic people that you are.
