#KeepFamiliesTogether "As descendants of conquered peoples of #LatinAmerica, we've been dominated by the Spanish Crown and the last 163 years by the economic and military might of the United States government.
This domination has produced an inferiority complex among our people and a dependence on our former colonial masters that has not been completely broken by the victories of independence in many Latin American nations.
We mock the color of our skin, our mixed racial features, and our indigenous ways.
This is the self-hatred that our conqueror PUT IN so that we would feel inferior to them.
We call Spain the “Mother Continent,” when it was the Indigenous cultures of the Americas and the Black peoples of Africa that produced the greatest civilizations and sciences while Europe was still in the Dark Ages.
The true knowledge of ourselves given to us by the Honorable ElijahMuhammad and the Honorable Minister @louisfarrakhan is now waking us up to this fact.
This inferiority complex is both cultural and economic.
We are a mixed blood people, with our colors and shades ranging from Black and Dark Brown to Tan and Pale White, and yet with all this diversity we suffer class and racial discrimination, in our countries of origin AND the United States.
We hold up our national flags as symbols of pride, and we should, but it should be a sign of upholding a principle or an ideal and not just a means of making ourselves feel better in a society that has put us down.
So we say “I'm proud to be Mexican,” or “I'm proud to be #PuertoRican, Dominican, Honduran, Colombian, Venezuelan, etc.,” and those are titles of PIECES of LAND.
The land DOESN'T define us.
The people WORKING TOGETHER in UNITY on the land defines what it means to be a NATION.
The God who created us defines us and gives us our sense and purpose of being." David J Muhammad
