Reply to "Marcus Garvey Was A Colonialist"

I really don't see any of your information establishing or supporting your thesis.

quote:
In 1916 he moved the UNIA headquarters to Harlem in New York and set up branches in other countries with large black populations... Garvey's message was clear, 'Up you mighty race, you can accomplish what you will'.

He was now ready to pursue his most ambitious plans. The UNIA negotiated with the government of Liberia for land which would be made available to repatriate black people from the USA, Caribbean, South and Central America.

*** At first the Liberian government agreed but soon changed its mind before any settlers could arrive. ***

How that made Garvey a "colonist", I don't know. But maybe you can tell me... directly.
