Would you please react to what people actually write??


I didn't say anything was wrong with Diop or any of these other people you cite...

My point was that you can't have respectable or even reliable black scholarship that relies only on black scholars.


Pay atention to what I say please...

Before you again misinterpret me,

You couldn't have respectable American scholarship that ignored relevant French, or Japanese, or Senegalese scholarship... for example...

Ideas are not so easily contained...

There has never been a great civilization that didn't borrow and learn from other civilizations.
