Where I ever claimed Marcus Garvey denigrated white people? I never claimed such a thing but always applauded his inflexible Nationalist stance. He was one of the greatest Radical the world ever saw who knew the enemies WELL and revolted against their prejudice which obstruct Blacks progress and force.
I ask you again WHERE I ever claimed the Honorable Marcus Garvey denigrated white people other than denounce their abuses? I too admire him also for he was reasonable enough to criticize Haile Selaissie’s political ineptitude and defense of his Semitic ancestry at the expense of his Black African heritage. I too admire him for he gave a stiff opposition to white colonialism, very near white and black middle class preeminence. MARCUS GARVEY WAS A RADICAL FIGURE HE WAS NO NAIVE CONFORMIST!
Also, why is it that you think BLACK NATIONALISM entails RACISM, discrimination? BLACKS SHOULD NEVER HAVE PRIDE? We should never challenge the status quo of traditional white, near-white superiority? Or is it that it is so radical that it makes YOU and white and near-white chauvinist uncomfortable? Honestly (and I have no reason to be defensive about this), I don't think that I ever been racist. I don't hate white people. Hating them isn't something I'm interested in. I can't even think of a good reason to be interested. It's a waste of time and energy! Black Africans cannot be racist. I try to be realistic in my assessment of things based on reality as I have researched, EXPERIENCED and have been told by older blacks to "just get over it"!
The only hope we have against the oppressors is to argue with them in the open and expose how egotistical and deceitful they are. Either that, or forever bury the Myth that whites, near-whites are genuinely interested in racial justice. I wonder just how many black people have the "I hate white people" mindset, and to what extent is that mindset affecting all of them?? At any rate, there is a difference between being a racist and having a Black Nationalist mindset!!
