LETTER: Blacks should strive for love

2016-02-25 06:00

We often spend too much time and energy on how we can free ourselves from White domination, but we seldom know how to relate to each other.

Many a book has been written about love, but you hardly any that focuses on Black love. In most cases, conscious black people find themselves in unconscious relationships.

If we claim to be the proponents of Black Consciousness then we should be the proponents of Black love.

We should pump life to Black people. Life and love are intertwined.
Black people should teach each other how to love, including the mechanisms we can use to teach each other how to love.

We are often taught by the western media on how we should love each other but this type of love only involves material possessions.

“I love him because he has money, I love him because of his looks, I love her because of how she is structured” these are temporary things and we should not fall for this because this is not beneficial to us as Black people. Loving someone should not necessarily mean you should spend what you do not have, but the time you have and get to know each other.
