What does Israel have to do with Black Nationalism? I would just like to say please, leave Israel out of the discussion about our people. We need to focus instead of getting so easily distracted with the Israel issue. That is often used to keep us from focusing on issues with us.
In its most basic form: Black Nationalism = Zionism - a strategy, a campaign, a movement to acquire a homeland.
Israel is an artificial, political land mass that was created to give a disposessed group of people a homeland. There's a lot that African America could learn from the successes and mistakes of Zionism IMO.
