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...


What if the heat continues to rise on the reparations movement and in 2016 the U.S. decides to grant a reparation in the form of a land grant - Israel-style. Who knows where. Is that completely implausible?

Not implausible. But, I caution, anything looking like Israel for Black folks may not be the right move - I am speaking in terms of control and autonomy.
