MAMA AMERICA”…AFRICA IS GRANDMA NOW…WE NEED YOUR MILK OF UNDERSTANDING…WHILE WE LEARN TO UNDERSTAND OUR FORMER AFRICAN SELVES…WE NEED YOUR UNCONDITIONAL LOVE…AND THE MERCY OF YOUR MATERNAL INSTINCT…LET US SHOUT WITH JOY AS WE PASS THROUGH YOUR GATES…AND KISS THE GROUND, WHERE YOU GAVE US BIRTH AND BREATH.
“MAMA AMERICA”…MAMA AMERICA”…SHOW US YOUR FREEDOM MOUNTAIN…HELP US CLIMB THE STAIRS…GUIDE US ALONG THE LIGHTED PATH…THAT LEADS TO OUR TRANSCENDANCE…MOTHER…WE WILL BE GOOD CHILDREN…PROUD SONS AND DAUGTHERS…THEN LET US REST AND GROW…CLOSE UPON YOUR BREASTS”.
There are 950 million people in the Americas. When the Old Atlantic World discovered the “NEW WORLD” it was already populated. In it’s early stages it would become as Thomas Jefferson described : “Red,White and Black”.Now it is a plethora of beautiful and exciting racial,ethnic and cultural mixitures.
I say again “AFRICA IS GRANDMA NOW”.We must strive to have our “EMOTIONAL COMING TO AMERICA”, and see America as our MOTHERLAND!
