What is a Mino Warrior?

Mino warrior of the Royal Dahomey Guard

I have changed my blogging name to Mino Warrior and eventually the name will replace all the contact information connected with this blog . The Mino were the female royal guards of the king of Dahomey. The original amazons who used to cut of one breast so that they could shoot their arrows straighter. When Dahomey was turned away from all things that made it a great empire and succumbed to the greed of slave trade they hunted their fellow humans at the behest of their regent. I see my self as a warrior because I keep getting knocked down but powers that be, but keep pulling myself back up. I been the recipient of amazingĀ  grace.

I also take this name because I am aware of how easy it is to dehumanize others on this planet. I live in a country denies this, America sees itself as the bastion of freedom. The United States built on the bones of its native people, the forced labor of Africans and did not deem to see many from Europe as white for centuries. When people of color mention these irrefutable facts America tells us to “stop whining.”

W.E.B. Du Bois statedĀ  that African Americans must know how others look at us while we keep our own identity and culture. It is not easy so much of when the mainstream culture of the United States has labeled African Americans as deficient. Not wanting an education is supposed to be black, not wanting to be safe in our home is black, wanting to be poor is black, wanting to be a gangsta, baby mama is black. If this is true then I am not part of this culture and I know I am. I want those who think they are “just a nigga” to recognize before they are wiped out. It is a thankless job but those of us who got a lil have to help those who don’t. It is fading value of African Americans, don’t let it die.

    If you call yourself a warrior, if you’re against the dehumanization of others. if you believe that you keep getting knocked down by the powers that be, then why did this just come out of your heart?

    “Because black women exercising their constitution right to reproductive freedom is not committing “genocide.”
    #OpenSeasonOnBlackGirlsIsOver”

    Ignoring that abortion is nowhere anywhere in the Constitution at all, are you aware that committing abortion is murder of an innocent and is NOT being a “warrior”? Are you aware that abortion thrives on on the incorrect idea that the babies being murdered are not human, aka dehumanization? Are you aware that the majority of Planned Parenthood clinics are located in minority neighborhoods, and that out of 3000 daily abortions 1000 of those are black, as the powers that be want it? This is but one way the powers that be are knocking down black people as you say, lady.

    Abortion is not “reproductive rights.” You have the “reproductive right” to either not have children, or to have children. End of. Murdering an innocent child is not a “right.” I hope that you will read this, do the research, and that you will wake up. Thank you for reading.

      I love when black men tell black women what to do with their lady parts. The marriage rate for black people is %45 and the 2008 interracial marriage rate for black men was %22. With these disgraceful statistics you want to force black women to do what you with their bodies, like a white slave master? The right to an abortion is constitutionally protected, you dolt. Please take your misogynoir nonsense elsewhere.
