These are some of my personal views of African-Americans from perspective of being Caucasian and not really understanding their viewpoint.
I don't understand their culture or genetic background, but there are some things that I have learned through the remote communications that might be worth mentioning.
If there is such a thing as being born again as in reincarnation, then the people who have been born in the country of America after how many lifetimes as Africans in a different part of the world, are at somewhat of a disadvantage in feeling comfortable with what they are dealing with. They have brought their strengths and skills into a strange land.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the concept of reincarnation it is a theory that we humans are actually spirits and souls, who are born into earthly bodies for a lifetime where we learn and experience what we can considering the body we get placed into and the circumstances of our lives. We are dealt the 'cards' of genetic codes from our various ancestors and we bring in our continuing 'real self of spirit' that was another person in previous lifetimes in a different body at a different time with different personality and characteristics. The skills learned during any particular lifetime and the reactions to the experiences are kept with the spirit and soul that has the chance to take that into where-ever we go between lifetimes and then into a next lifetime. The goal obviously would be to learn more skills and gather more understanding that could be used in various situations. Lifetimes are also a chance to bring into material manifestation and action what has been learned before but not yet put into material form or action to become part of earthly life.
The skills necessary to survive in Africa must have been more in the line of making friends with nature or learning to conquer whatever nature and the environment dished out.
The knowledge gained about the flora and fauna of the areas that they were used to would in most cases not be applicable in the more northern areas.
Their ability to deal with nature is difficult to adapt to an ability to deal with city streets.
Their music that was based on the subliminal rhythms of roving herds of large animals and the sounds of birds and insects and small animals rustling through the deserts or jungles had to adapt to the puritanical adaptations of old Irish classical music such as the many Baptist and Presbyterian hymns that are from the Irish composer Blind Carrollen.
The communications that I have had with some of the people out there on the road who were experimenting with e-weapons and e-technology and using me as a 'wavie' guinea pig have indicated that there are a few who have been able to adapt their sensitivity to nature into a sense that gives them ability to 'read' some of the subtleties that help people be more aware of undercurrents and background reality.
Something that has been funny to realize is that the way that the northern hemispheric languages and cultures have sort of mirror opposed and played off of southern hemispheric languages and cultures through the millenniums that there was not much interaction except for the occasional ship travel and marauding wars.
Historically the culture and artists symbols have always had some international consciousness that makes Carl Jung seem very astute about the universal conscious that some artists and philosophers are able to tap into.
I was not a part of the civil rights things that were going on while I was in school, since I was attending private Protestant academies and was protected from the general public.
There doesn't seem to me that there should be so many problems that seem to be culture clashes between the races. With more acceptance of individuality but with an understanding that there is a majority establishment type of standard culture to deal with it should not be so difficult.
I will not accept responsibility for the actions of people who are now dead and gone, whatever side they were on in any controversy or war.
The medical findings though are such that there is indication that mixing of different races genetically is destructive to the RNA/DNA codes, and historically there has been countries that have destroyed many of their own people through the destructiveness of a wrong mix of genetic codes. So that is something to be very careful of and more should be learned about genetic codes and studies done of genetic lineage.
I know that I have always felt a particular comfort from things of the old country in northern Europe and the big green isle-sort of deja-vu and familiar.
The respect that I feel I owe to people is individual for the most part and there isn't a human being on the face of this earth that I don't consider 'just human'.
