I agree with you in a way...
***Even among the so called Roots who encompass the masses, cannot move forward to demand justice because we squabble amongst ourselves about issues that often times are a distraction to liberation. Why we squabble about the merits of the Holy Ible or other ancient spiritual texts our people continue to suffer from disease famine and war.***
We definately have to realize what are primary and secondary(far secondary) issues. I would say that usually the 'conscious folk' are not the ones who refuse to work with their brethren/sistern on the primary issues on an organizational level. I have noticed in several years of organizing(in the States and abroad), it is usually the hard line X-tian who will not organize, associate, or even deal with other non-X-tian Africans when it comes to liberation issues. They put the Bible and Jesus, and usually 'prosperity preaching' before liberation. Most see liberation as being successful in a capitalist system, not fighting against said system. I personally see this as the reason that the Bible catches so much 'fire'.
Also, this is a reasonning board, so we can't expect reasonning to be strictly confined to the 'primary' contradictions...some stuff can't and shouldn't be discussed in such a public forum. We must do works outside of this reasoning(and from what I can tell it seems most do).
***While we argue about this or that our human and natural resources continue to be exploited and used for every ones benefit except Africans. The overall condition of Africans at home and in the Diaspora is appalling and to remedy our present condition actions must be initiated with urgency and a plan must be developed that is practical and attainable.***
