Okay Oshun Auset and AudioGuy ... I get your points!!
But, with all due respect, Black Wall Street was in the 1920's and Cointelpro was in the 1960's. Federal agents do not wear fatigues and march by companies into neighborhoods and conduct crimes against humanity. (Civil rights violations, yes! But, that's another story.)
As bas as we have it here today with those very real forces working against us, I sincerely hope you don't seriously compare it to places like Angola, Sudan, the DRC, and other African countries where the government actually does order it's military troops to go into cities, towns and villages to commit heinous crimes against its own citizens not every 30 or 40 years ... but did so today, and tomorrow and yesterday!
Yes, we are targeted and harassed and persecuted here ... but killed, raped or burned out of our homes en masse ... I think not!
And KISONGO ...
May I ask why do so many Continental Africans such as yourself so loudly and vehemently condemn us African Americans for our failure to control our government and assume that the reason we don't control our government is because we are totally ignorant of the things our government does ... when you and your people are no better at doing either with your own governmental institutions?
It totally amazes me how many African-born people all say that very same thing, yet their own knowledge and ability cannot/does not stop their own governments from the corruption and domination that invades them?? May I ask why you assume that we don't know the actions of our own government?? And what it is that you believe that we are not doing or don't do in order to make them stop? And also why Angola is still experiencing 20 years of civil war if you have the knowledge of how to stop it?
