RepostBy @k3pr: "God dropped "The Diaspora Dialogues" into my spirit one day after having an encounter with an African friend who was dismissive of the African-American culture. Within days, another incident happened when an #AfricanAmerican friend became disparaging and did not agree with me calling her "#African" without the "#American." Days later a client of mine was scolded on social media about being a "so-called Nigerian star." Africans went innnnnn with their perceived stereotypes of American blacks and African-Americans went innnnnnn with their perceived stereotypes of Africans and I read every single comment and was so HEAVY SPIRITUALLY that day.
I called my client to tell her how sad and broken I was to see such vitreous behavior for ourselves. "Why do we seem to hate each other?" I asked, then In my head, I said: "God please change this thing we have for each other, it's ugly and sets us back from achieving anything together." Then He said talking is your gift, from childhood you've always been INQUISITIVE and challenged the status quo, just TALK to people and it will start the healing process. I meditated on what that would look like and he gave me @DiasporaDialogues. The Diaspora Dialogues is space where I can create an environment to bring all parties of the #diaspora together to speak to EACH OTHER, hear, listen and hopefully heal our wounds of deep seated cultural divide.
I don't have all the answers but I do know the ONLY way to have a relationship with someone is to first have a conversation with them. I hope the world will join me in supporting this journey into the discovery zone of healing our global descendants and helping us [individuals of the diasopras] find our way back to empowerment, and loving one another. The motherland is a place where we are #Kings and #Queens; we need to unify and become #ONE.
