greetings dread, how can malcolm be removed, or assata , or the host of fire fighters who went before? impossible, imo. but the media covered these great afrikan liberators, it was a different time.
i never said unfit to lead, but today,given the fact that media priorities are different, lightskinned brothas and sistahs might be in on the planning or stragey sessions, providing whichever expertise or contribution but they should wisly concede the actual head post to a darkskinned bro or sistah in honor of the ancestors and in honor of the black youth who could benefit from that particular work.
agreed there are not many darkskinned individuals in pop culture here in the west and that is inclusive of latino america and much of the carrybeyond, so i n i as conscious ones should not perpetrate the same.
peace i, give thanks
