    We've all had these discussions about building an independent Black nation. Several people have even tried to lay claim to land and make it their own. But what about the independent, Black communities that already exist here and around the world? Let's try and compile a list of those communities.

    Gullah-Geechee Nation(GA & SC Sea Islands)

    Kingdom of Oyotunji(Sheldon, SC)

    Kingdom of Barule(Colombia)

    Touba (Senegal)

    Cockpit Country(Jamaica)

    Are there any others that you can think of?

    Have you ever visited any of these places?

    If you were able, would you move to any of these communities?

    Which one of these "Autonomus Communities" are not under threat by landgrabbers?

    And which autonomous Communities unless they are communities of the filthy rich, regardless of continent, or ethnicity are not unde threat of eminent domain and government or corporate take over as the global economy declines??

    In this global economy there is no autonomous anything.

    Either a community is aligned or networked for economic and political defense or they are not!
