I agree with your reasonings totally, every single one of us have a responsibilty to struggle for the liberation and upliftment of our people everywhere, but it is just a pity that some of us neglected our supreme duties. It is also a great pity that people are deceived, to think that slavery was abolished, when indeed it was only polished. If slavery was truly abolished, why are we as African people, living in the western hemisphere which is outside of Africa. If slavery was truly abolished and not only polished, we would have been Repatriated back to our properties, which we left in Mama Africa, when we were brutailized across the middle passage.
Until the present leaders of Mama Africa, stop imitating the leaders of Europe in their governmental policies, and start acting like true African liberators, by taking some pages out of the books and liberation examples, from the lives of Kwame Nkumah, Patrice Lumumba, Seke Toure, Mwalimu Julius Nyrere, and those of their generation, who have given them the torch to carry on the struggle, then this confusion will continue to take place,and this suspicion between Africans at home and abroad will continue.
60% of the qualified Africans in Mama Africa, those who could help to establized the social and economical structures in Mama Africa, have migrated to the western hemisphere, and have further schooled themselves, in the skills which are needed to build and maintain industries, but instead of returning to their villages, which nourished and made them to be adults, they stay in the western world, and live the lives of Europeans, while they are desperately needed in Mama Africa, to help as poineers, to prepare the way, to welcome back home, African liberators who are assigned abroad, and have done much work over the pass 500 years for the continent of Africa and her people.
The international slave trading practices, Jim Crow laws, and the international Aparthied system of downpression, is not yet abolished, it is still taking place, when young black people are being imprisoned, all over the world including Mama Africa. Black African leaders in Mama Africa as well as in the African Diaspora, need to be more than just politicians, they need to be African liberators, who spend their time in the work of gradual liberation, instead of making themselves and their friends and families, affluent out of community property, while the masses of our people live in abject poverty. Let these mistakes in our communities be corrected and be corrected now now.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to frican people everywhere.
ONE BLACK LOVE ONE BLACK HEART.
