    People with obvious roots in Afrika would much rather “pledge” to be a so-called “Greek” than identify themselves by the bloodline that they share with their ancestors in the Motherland? Never understood that method of thought. I mean,I just can’t find the logic behind it. By no means am I disrespecting my Brothers and Sisters for the decisions they made when they entered a HBC only to pledge “Greek”, but I’m just saying … study your origin and learn more about your story than “his” story. With research, you’ll soon see that it all came from your ancestors. Kujichagulia!!!
