Hotep brother Ayinde,
I see no problem establishing a relationship between blacks across the globe because all black people have had their lands taken away by the Europeans, and still fight for equal rights today. I have not forgotten that. But how you can describe "African" Asian dark-skinned people? The vast majority of them donít consider themselves "black" or cared to be treated as "African" itís still a fact; although I have heard of black Asian organizations have begun an outreach to African Diaspora Organizations. I just think it's wrong to create a force connection with them if they shut it down. They deserve our support only because we share common oppression at the hands of colonization. But sorry they have faint or no cultural ties with black-Africans.
