Of course, Africans throughout the Diaspora do not share ALL of the same values, codes, or moral principles.

There's a lot to respond here. I'll come back to this as I can.

Re: "By Any Means Necessary"

This is quite a challenge. I can't give an "end-all" answer. Philosophies are a product of their times. They may not travel well through time. The "Never Again1" of African America's chattel slavery does. As does the "Never Again!" of the holocaust of WWII. Then President Nelson Mandela declined to include "By Any Means Necessary" in his reading of Malcolm's speech when he read it for the ending of the movie "Malcolm X." He said it was not prudent for the times (of his nation, South Africa).

Debra Dickerson appeared to be more interested in making arguments that both suits her position in the Black community and arguments made against her and those who think like her. This is why she kept sticking to the whole authentically Black argument.

I've long been a Michael Dyson fan. I watched about half of the interview, because I had seen, and heard him on a couple of other sessions on his promotion tour.
