    We must first work out our INTERNAL differences and unite among eachother, before we can pose a real challenge to the powers that be.

    My question is, are AfroColumbians as divided among eachother as Black people in other parts of the Western hemisphere?

    Is Black on Black crime and the "crabs in a bucket syndrome" as rampant in Columbia's Black community as it is in America, Haiti, Jamaica and other Diasporan communities?

    If so, then those problems must first be adressed and healed so that we are powerful enough to stand to the greater enemy.

    And it starts with a love of and respect for self.

    Sister Vandella, the information that you've been posting on blacks in South America has all been extremely interesting. However, you've been putting them in the wrong place. Subjects about black people in different parts of the world typically belongs in the PanAfrican Forum. I don't know if you are aware of the purpose of PanAfricanism. PanAfricanism is movement which seeks to unite blacks from around the world, based on our similar heritage, culture, and experiences. One of the key ways in seeking to achieve this unity is by learning about each other. Thus this forum was created to share our stories and similar experiences. WIth this explaination, I hope you realize why it is more appropriate to have these threads posted in this forum rather than the Open Forum.

    Thanks brother Pan. That took the words out of my mouth. More people have to be educated about panafricanism so we dont risk thinking we are more important than other black peoples anywhere on the planet. The thing is there are just as many exciting and sometimes horrific news in any given part where black people are. We just need to know that not all of them will be known by many of us. Yet, we offer our support to whoever it affects.
