In your opinion, is the idea . . . "outmoded" (in practical terms) in 2006? Also, is there any conceptual tension, in your opinion, between nationalism and Pan Africanism?
IMO, black nationalism (as it has existed to date) is a reactionary child born of American soil... It is provincial... miasmic... and as outmoded as the jheri curl... Pan Africanism is a truly international blossoming of the desire for Black self-determination...
I agree in part. Black nationalism COULD BE a PROACTIVE response to white supremacy if done correctly. I am not ready to throw away Black nationalism in amerikkka because its potential for liberation and empowerment is far greater than voting in a national election every four years.
