How can a black man be a English man ?
An English man history goes back to days of Saxons and Normans about 2000 to 3000 years ago the main bulk of black man interaction with the European is only 500 years old. So you can dress up like an Englishman, speak like an Englishman and even be educated in their educational system, you cannot be a Englishman.
” I am not African because I was born in Africa but because Africa was born in me.”
The Saxons were a Germanic tribe that originally occupied the region which today is the North Sea coast of the Netherlands, Germany, and Denmark. The Saxons were among the “barbarian” nations that would engage against Rome during late antiquity, putting an end to the dying imperial order in the western realm of Rome.
The Normans were an ethnic group that arose in Normandy, a northern region of France, The Norman dynasty had a major political, cultural and military impact on medieval Europe. The Normans were famed for their martial spirit ( mind, attitude and wisdom cultivated by a real warrior ) and eventually for their Catholic piety, becoming exponents of the Catholic orthodoxy of the Roman community into which they were assimilated.
That’s why Marcus Garvey said that ‘ a people without knowledge of their past history, origin and culture, is like a tree without roots. ‘
Honest students of history and culture will acknowledged our History goes back to tribes like the Zulu tribes and Maasia tribes these are two examples speaking swahili and Amharic two examples of languages of the African tribes speak.
The Maasai are a Nilotic ethnic group inhabiting northern, central and southern Kenya and northern Tanzania otherwise known as Nile valley. They are among the best known local populations internationally due to their residence near the many game parks of the African Great Lakes, and their distinctive customs and dress.
The Zulu are a Bantu ethnic group of Southern Africa and the largest ethnic group in South Africa, with an estimated 10–12 million people living mainly in the province of Kwa Zulu-Natal. Ashanti Yoruba.

Paulete Wilson. Am I British ?
A letter from the British government telling Paulette Wilson age 61 that she was an illegal immigrant in a land were she had lived for past 50 years was quite shocking upsetting her sense of identity and belonging.
Hostile immigration policies meant Paulette Wilson and other victims of the Windrush scandal had their right to residency in the UK called into question. She had been detained for a week pending imminent deportation but thankfully she was released before she was due to be deported.
Many personal stories like Paulette Wilson have black people questioning who they are, are they British ? well when Great Brittan was in need 50, 60 years ago there was no identity problem. Come to the mother land was the call seeing that the Caribbean was under British rule at the time. are they Caribbean ? or are they Africans ? because history shows it was Africans caught up in European exploitation of the continent.
Paulette Wilson, a former cook who served food to MPs in the House of Commons, has been denied benefits and access to healthcare and refused permission to work for the past two and a half years.
This week she received a biometric residency permit, confirming her settled status in the UK and bringing her a step nearer to being a so called British citizenship, but as long as we have people like president Trump with his go back to where you come from talk ( PS President trump father is German and mother is Scottish, so how is he going to go back home. ha ha ) black people will always feel like foreigners.
“It’s great news. I’ve been really struggling for the last two and a half years – it’s hard without money,” Wilson said. She remains puzzled by why she was told she was an illegal immigrant, when she had worked and paid taxes in the UK for most of her life.
Wilson’s daughter, Natalie Barnes, said her mother now had to complete a naturalisation process to become a British citizen. Barnes added that, despite her relief, mum was still traumatised by her experience.
