Seriously, you would have to tell me when an actual process of a Dialogue even began, in earnest. And that's the thing.

This is not a religion debate - it so happened that Rowe mentioned men on "another level" being able to avoid women that may suffer from cognitive dissonance.

I'm saying that the outcome of Garvey's political beliefs in reality was bad news for native Africans. When African-Americans moved over to Africa, they did so at the expense of the natives.
