I've been reading a little bit about Black Nationalism. Let me tell you what I've mainly found: 1. Black nationalists are racists, fanatics, and violent. They are for the racial superiority of Black/African people. 2. Black nationalists stand for the upliftment of black people, through moral, political, and economic corridors. I know in my heart of hearts that it is necessary for black people to create an exclusive black community. I feel that we need to recreate what was lost during the destruction of Black Wall St in Tulsa, OK. I know that we need to open pandora's box and really examine not only our modern history but our ancient history as a peoples. I know that we need to take back, some how, all of the artifacts, texts, etc that was taken from our country and us by every other race on this planet (including ourselves). I know that to be black nationalist, you do not have to be prejudiced against other races. That is a trap. Have you noticed that whenever one of us speak about this sort of thing we are immediately branded as racists, violent, or fanatic? I believe it is important to be for our race and to seek to uplift our race before we try to uplift any other group of people inside of the label "black" (see: gay/trans rights, women's rights, disabled rights, etc) Thoughts? I think it is necessary to have a real discussion about HOW we're going to do this in real life. I'm personally finally about to move into a large black community (after having had to tolerate white B.S) and would like some advice on how to broach this subject with less than knowledgable or educated people. I understand many people will have a knee-jerk reaction to the idea of black nationalism -- because of the same trap I spoke of above (somehow blacks HAVE to be racists if we're for our own race).
