Biskit BS: Racial No-nos (258* d) RE: BS: Racial No-nos 19 Nov 05

True, peace should be the ultimate goal,.. through understanding of different cultures and people. Understanding is best accopmplished by the intelligent exchange of ideas, understanding that there will be cultural differences, and accepting them if they do no harm.
While I respect Azizi's choice to not like banjo music, I'm lost as to why not liking it would show respect to her ancestors, since the instrument originated in Africa, and was played by Africans... Is it because it was also played by white folks? some of them owning slaves from Africa, How could the Banjo be held accountable for the sins, or graciousness of the person playing it? I'm sure many of the folks fighting and dying to abolish the practice of treating people as real property played the banjo too. Just as I always sign my posts, Peace! Through Understanding,...I'm just trying to understand..Azizi??
Peace!Through Understanding
