If that's the case, the what's the point of Pan-Africanism? Shouldn't people just form closer alliances based of religions and philosophy then?
To be honest I am not surrounded by many people,brothers and sisters, who concern themselves with the wellbeing of African-Americans as a whole, although it has been a mental focus of mine for some time I have just recently began spending time reading and conversing with people to attempt to link up with similar minded individuals.
With that said I may not have a complete understanding of Pan-Africanism, I thought it was simply the re-unification of Africans, that would be the point. I feel like the African Spirit speaks to us all, unfortunately the voice is being blocked out by misconceptions and false doctorines,or interpretations of true doctorines. We are so overwhelmed with hurt and despair our idea of religion seems more focused on the fulfilment of our needs than the spirit of joy and thanksgiving it should be.quote:The other would be more like a business agreement, where we do not necissarily have to come to one accord instantly or even at all.
If that's the case, it's not a very strong alliance, and what would be the point? Just to sorta legally recognize, "yeah, we sorta look alike. Kewl"?
Really what I'm getting at is that even if we do not all come to one agreement or accept eachothers views the most important thing in my opinion will have been accomplished with our unity. THE FUTURE OF OUR CHILDREN. Removing them from this society that is designed to "EAT" or consume our children. They are 'DOOMED' to become consume(r) slaves.
In the white mans world, and those nations choosing to mimic western civilizations.
In my mind the point is freedom from a foriegn system designed to use us as fuel for thier fire.
Not trying to knock what you said, just trying to get a better understanding. Thanks for the response.
I completely understand, like I said it is rather new to me to verbalize what I'm thinking usually people just tune me out, they are more concerned with what video's on MTV or comedian on BET.
Thank you for responding to my post
