''We must become something we have never been and for which our education and experience and environment have ill-prepared us. We must become bigger than we have been: more courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook. We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community." - Haile Selassie, 1963You are very well attributed with Irish history, good to see, thanks.
After the Vagabond Laws were introduced, and they began as far back as the 1530's and the 1540's, it became necessary for the Celts to breed with the Romani. To put things crudely, real Celts already have the blood of common Gypsies running through their veins, and it was also an African, and not a present day Israelite, who 1st proposed to the United Nations that the human species had to evolve and become what he called a 'new race.' That needs to be put into context, as there was approximately 80-90 different 'nationalities' in Ethiopia, and Selassie needed to unite them against the forces of Fascism. Mandela created on Alliance of 600 groups in South Africa, and in The Long Walk To Freedom, he credits Haile Selassie and Ethiopia for influencing his vision of the African National Congress. The difference is that Selassie had to envision a system to cater for 80-90 black nationalities, whereas Mandela had to try and create a system to cater for mixed African nationalities, as well as mixed European nationalities.
