I agree. I think both Mr. B and Cornell West rushed to pigeon-hole Farrakhan's comments which, while I thought they were a bit out of place, I didn't see them as substantively that far from the core attitude behind the Convenant Movement. There's an overriding sense and emphasis on self-help in both. Cornell West definitely wanted to act like Farrakhan was talking about a "separatist" nation or something. Maybe I took that wrong but that seems like where he was trying to take it to. And I...

It ain't about a "feel good". There's a principled position there. Indeed, it's no more rhetoric than the Noble Negro Notion that we can not only Save Ourselves but Save America (and the World) too. And, really, when and where has that actually been suggested? I do think the whole point of a Convenant, etc. is to lay out some priorities. And Malcolm's quote says something pretty specific: "If the master's house caught on fire, the house Negro would fight harder to put the blaze out than the...

The Super Negro thing is a form of exceptionalism, that goes back centuries. It is similar to the exceptionalism often found among cultural or political black nationalist. While the later group often asserts that black folk are different, unique, or distinct culturally, socially, historically, or even biologically and thus need a "nation" of our own, the former understands black uniqueness as as somehow salvific for the world. Even before it appears in King, it is present in black culture...

I strongly disagree. Those are passive examples of particpation. We need to do much, much, more. The vanguards of the current system need to be out of business. Education is a political event and true educational reform has to be sponsored by the masses.

As this nation moved from an agrarian society to a nation where goods were mass produced,...

You're right; all of modern Homo sapiens developed and dispered from the African continent.

Try telling that to the Arabs of North and East Africa, who view the Black Africans as "kaffir" and animals.
