Begrijp je ook de Nederlandse taal..? Uit mijn eigen ervaring heb ik namelijk hele leuke discussies gehad met Afrikaners. Mooie mensen. Vaak erg direct en hard, net zoals ons Nederlanders... Al moet ik zeggen dat Nederlanders een beetje softer geworden zijn. Wat dat betreft kunnen we wel wat van jullie leren. ;-)
Ja, ek verstaan &#8203;&#8203;Nederlan dse hoewel daardie taal en myne is, is nie meer so soortgelyke.Ons het 'n paar Franse en Portugese gemengde in.But natuurlik Nederlands is nog steeds verstaanbaar aan ons.

I don't think people are confused by African Americans. I think everyone understands African Americans, but some black groups of African descent (Jamaican, Haitian, and native Black Africans, e.g., Nigerians, Ghanians, etc...) wants African Americans to feel a sense of admiration for them, but African Americans have no reason to admire any other black group. African Americans can respect and be considerate of other black groups, but other groups want much more than that from African Americans.
Jamaicans and Haitians are majority black countries (Islands) that now rule themselves, so they may want African Americans to be in awe of them for that, but African Americans are not in awe of them.
In regards to native Africans, e.g., Nigerians, Ghanaians, Liberians, etc..., they want African Americans to view them as superiors, because that is their culture and society. In those societies, they have always had a class system, just like in India. African Americans are viewed as a group who are descended of slaves, which is the lowest you can go in their eyes, so they feel that African Americans should worship them (all native Africans) the way that those in lower-status economic positions in their (African) societies worship the elite in their native African societies, e.g., tribal chiefs, upper middle class, educated, etc..., but African Americans refuse to demean themselves by acting inferior to anyone, including other black groups; it is for this reason that native Africans are always complaining about African Americans not wanting to learn their customs, because as Africans, they'd know they place and they'd possibly learn to humble themselves to any and all native, black Africans, but that will never happen with African Americans.

African Americans are not misunderstood--most people understands them very well--they just don't like what they know about the group's unwillingness to be submissive and humble to others.
Hi NAA,

Reading your words, I felt as if I was a student, back in school Certainly, I intend to download your comments.
.
I respectfully disagree with one or two ideas. In terms of self respect, we must never forget that Blacks
inhabit a social system dominated by whites--older white men in particular. While each Black individual may adopt an attitude of self worth, as you point out, the social/cutural/conomic system continues to determine important factors such as jobs, education, health care,, etc. Perhaps, some would go further. A person who views himself as one thing, and his world views him in a completely different way might well have mental problems.(I say this as a possibility, not a fact.) Moreover, in cases he/she may be rejected by both groups as well as his own. One book, and a very good one, is Cruz's "Crisis of the Black Intellectual." While Cruz's books deals with political questions, I feel it has some implications for individuals.
.
It is in this way that Africans and Islanders feel superior. They grew up in a social system that supported the Black individual. Thus, they childhood and their lives were not defined in terms of a dominating white culture.(Marcus Garvey being a notable exception)

Hi Abdurrain,
First, let me say that I believe you are an honorable individual.
So much material has been erroneously spoken and published, that I confess, I often go to the NET to double check. Modern revisionist regarding slavery and Islamic participation is absolutely ridiculous.

It does seem to be true that Bantu slaves were held in Somalia. Actually, there are currently Bantu's living in the U.S. and elsewhere that confirm as muchl

This is not about "it seems..." This is about evidence and facts. The very first line of the link you gave is this: " We are Somali Bantu group who was brought in Somalia as slave in the 19th Century by the agents of the Sultan of Zanzibar and Sayid Barkash and particularly suffered persecution and marginalization in Somalia." I checked it as I always do. But I did not read beyond that one line. It said they were enslaved by the sukltan of Zanzibar. That is where most of the eastern slave trade was: Zanzibar. It was not in Somalia. And I have never seen any evidence that would cliam it was in Somalia.

.Regarding Muslims enslaving Muslims, I am drawing a conclusion from the known facts. Non Muslims were subject to Jihads <sp> , Jihads, as I understand the term permitted Muslims to capture and enslave the conquered people. It doesn't make sense to me to believe that a Jihad can be declared by Muslims against Muslims. Not withstanding the fact that Muslims fight each other, frequently and violently--but we are talking about slavery and most Somolians are Muslims.
Thanks again for a great discussion. I hope you decide to stick around
f
Muslims cannot enslave anybody. What they can do is hold prisoners of war. And the only prisoners of war in Jighad are non-Muslims.

They were enslaved in Zanzibar. The Somalis did not enslave these people which is what I said from the beginning. The Zanzibaris enslaved them just as the Zanzibaris enslaved many of us here in the USA. Do you know who Zanzibar is? It is now part of Tanzania. So Tanzania enslaved trhe Bantus and also enslaved us here in the USA.

Islam is against slavery just as Judaism is against it. Muhammad was a prophet like Moses with a mission identical to Moses'. Sio if Moses was against slavery, so was Muhammad.(Peace and Blessings be upon them both.) It would take a stupid person not to be able to see something that is so clear and so obvious. Your problem is Islamophobia is which you have this pathologiocal need to always say something bad about Islam.

It started as a food fight. I do not have specific evidence. But I strongly suspect the Somalis were throwing pork at the KKKristians.

The Somali Bantu (also called Jareer, Gosha, Adoon or Mushunguli) are an ethnic minority group in Somalia who primarily reside in the southern part of the country, near the Juba and Shabelle rivers. They are descendants of people from various Bantu ethnic groups, most of whom were captured from Southeast Africa and sold into slavery in Somalia and other areas in Northeast Africa and Asia as part of the 19th century Arab slave trade. Bantus are ethnically, physically, gentically and culturally distinct from Somalis, and they have remained marginalized ever since their arrival in Somalia.

from this book i am really alone i can bring you UNDENIABLE evidence that islam is a child of christianity. there would be no way to deny it with what i have been reading in this book called "the true origins of islam" by walter williams.
It is a sdang KKKristina telling another dang KKKristian where Islam came from. I am a Muslim and I just told you that Islam did not come from KKKristianity. Maybe Williams ought to try expalin where KKKristianity came from and leave Islam to me.

<quoted text>but then again, no matter how strong the evidence against islam that someone provides for you, you continuely try to rewrite islams history to fit your objectives:
It so happens that I know Islamic history and you and Williams do not know ANYTHING about Islam.

"Allah says:“They pay the jizyah by hand in a condition of submission.”[from Sûrah al-Tawbah: 29]
This is the verse that establishes the jizyah – a tax that is paid by non-Muslims who live as citizens in the Muslim state.
There is considerable confusion among people as to what the jizyah is all about and why only non-Muslims have to pay it. This article seeks to address the nature of the jizyah, the reasons for it, and the rationale behind it."
http://en.islamtoday.net/artshow-412-3390.htm
You have to pay it because you receive free government services and protection that is paid for by Muslims. All we are saying is you must pay your fair share. Muslims also have tio pay tax. Have you ever heard of anybody living is civilized society who did not have to pay tax?

I have talked to my Somali friends. They do not seem to even know it happened. It is no big deal to the Muslim Community. I guess that means that thre KKKristians got their booties whipped real good. That is why they are complaining so loudly. Plus, I am certain that the Muslims started the fight.

sorry. but most to none of the food is not fried these days. depending on the school and what they have for the kitchen area, they tend to use ovens to prepare the food.

heck, some of the food comes already prepared in many ways. so it is easier on the cooks to cook the food.
.
ain't like the days when I was in school with a teeny tiny kitchen with ten to fifteen ladies trying to make lunch for the masses. and trying to do it on a limited time basis with huge pots and kettles. and actually having to fry things.
.
been in school kitchens. not only for to see how they did things. but also helping during the first couple of years with the breakfast program when Anoka-Hennepin 11 started using it for the kids.
Absolutely, Sangelia. Well put. Actually, I was being sarcastic in that you're right about hamburgers being fried in pig's fat and why I found it laughable when that it was stated that hamburgers are being prepared that way. Let alone it being reason to overhaul a school's lunch program for 8% of it's student body. It's nice to see that other people, such as yourself, still have you God given common senses. Hamburgers fried in pig's fat, I'll tell ya, that was a new one on me. As I always say, never say that you've seen it all because there will be innovators.

Have a great afternoon, Sangelia.
