Zuleilah2: You are well versed in the problems that exist in Africa, and with the troubled relationships between African Americans & Africans throughout the Diaspora. However to encounter negative news about Africans (or any other black people), all one has to do is read the paper or watch the news. There is no shortage of negative news or depictions about Black people in any & every country. Yet PanAfricanism is not about concentrating on the negative, it calls for Africans throughout the Diaspora to use what we have in common, to unite. PanAfricanism is about building bridges & healing, not picking at old wounds. Therefore, I challenge you to say something positive about Africa. Give some encouraging news about relationships between African Americans and their brothers & sisters in other countries. Tell us about ways we can improve our relationships with our foreign counterparts. Please use this thread to do so. If you can not....might I be so bold in saying that you are probably in the wrong place.
