In Response To: What is the contention about? (Ayinde)
I agree, generally speaking.
But what do we do with people like Malcolm X, MLK, Frederick Douglas, W.E.B Dubois, The black panther party, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Assata Shakur, etc, etc?
None of these fit your general premise yet they were leaders in their own right.
If your premise became law, then none of these people would ever have been able to address ills that go on in America and beyond concerning black people. They would have been silenced.
Where are all these conscious black, kinky haired, broad nose, and thick lipped continental Afrikans to champion Afrikan liberation at home and abroad?
I am ignorant to the fact so please enlighten me.
