Re: What About The Debt Blacks Owe To America?

First of all white people did NOT end slavery as an act of benevolence. They ended slavery when it was no longer profitable for them. By the 1830s plantation slavery was no longer profitable for slave masters. The new form of slavery "colonialism" was the new avenue of wealth. Mother England led the colonialization process. In other words enslave the "black bastards" in their native lands instead of spending good money to ship them to America to work impoverished plantations. Let them...

Africa is still considered backwards and it's people mired in ignorance. And of course we were told that African physical...

OK - Mr. Pan Africanist - you be da man! Since you have all the answers, please explain a couple of questions I have. 1) Please explain your vision for global Pan Africanism. What does it look like? How does it work? How do you connect Africans all over the world? 2) What is your strategy to achieve this global Pan Africanism? The continent is extraordinarily fractured as is. African America has a diverse group within itself. How do you pull all this together with Africans around the world?
