Your original question has nothing to do with Pan Africanism, which is what the RBG represents. Based on what I know now, I would have to reiterate that I think African America's best chances are with maximizing our opportunity here. Now that could mean 'working the system' to earn reparations and even trying to win a chunk of land somewhere to "own". In a world where our government spends more on defense than every other country in the world combined and where it has almost unlimited ability to use COINTELPRO tactics, I just don't think a revolution - in the traditional defintion - is in our best interest or is practical.
