Another topic that Africa-Americans tend to ignore based on religious beliefs. It seems like only continental born Africans even pay attention to this issue oh and whites who are using it as a political issue to manipulate.
Not sure exactly what you mean by this. I do know (as seen on AA.org in the past) there is a popular frame that exist where issues involving Africans (dark skinned Africans) where the only acceptable discussion is within that frame. This can been seen in both article content and thread titles (including this one).
Now of course next will be the obligatory (rolling eyes....yeah MC you're a Mooozlum so of course you'd say that) dismissal.
The classification of Arab as something "foreign" to all things African cannot be historically substantiated as it originated in Africa. That, in addition to the history of colonization and de-coloialzation, makes this a subject far beyond what most American Born Pan-Africanist are interested in dealing with.
Interestingly you can (and do find) Africans born on the continent who deal with those issues (and others) at length. They usually ignored by American Pan Africanist, no matter their persuasion.
If we are soul-interested in and devoted to uniting with the peoples of Africa, then we must model that unity. That means unifying with the Hutus and the Tutsis, the Berbers and the Jews, the Arabs and the Zulus, the Bantu with the Pygmies and not excluding the sons of Euro invaders now living there. Reconciliation and proper distribution of resources and riches to citizens.
But! No matter where, nowhere is unity. Hearts yearn for that but nowhere do you see it manifest. There is no unity and there has never been any but conditional unity among the mad animals called Men or Mind. The spirit yearns for it but does not meet it out here except perhaps in real friendly groups, more than in businesses or organizations.
I take leave and thank you.
