    From where I'm standing the answer is a resounding yes.

    Contrary to the opinion of its detractors, Black nationalist groups have continued to make significant contributions across the board to the African socio-economical and geo-political landscape.

    Most of the members on this site should be aware of all the dirty tricks committed under the auspices of Cointel-pro on the part of US intelligence agencies. Then it should serve as no surprise that sustained efforts on the part of the very same agencies which sought to exterminate said groups had a delitirius effect on the overall health and welfare of Black communities.

    Below is a link that provides a glimpse of some of the work being done by nationalist.

    lets be honest, there are hardly any compared to back in the days, otherwise we would not see the killing of kids like in Newark and in Manhattanville West Harlem,

    and really that is shocking considering even the ad hoc committees did much and rallied thousands without a facebook, twitter, texting or Iphones,
    so now our communities are catching more hell then in the 60s and 70s, us old timers are wondering what has happened to the tech age post 9/11 generation in any attempts or focus inmaking black nationalism a thing of consideration among a large number of those below 30.

    of of
    One of the most glaring differences between then and now is the current financial, physical and moral support from the greater black community is for the most part anemic. I think one of the major hurdles facing black mainstream institutions is the perception of guilt by assocociation. But lets be real, the NAACP and the Urban league dont want to be associated with black nationalism.

    Be that as it may none of these setbacks should allow us to fail to recognize the fact that brothers and sisters continue to put their lives on the line for our people.

    When I ask "Black Nationalist" to point to something they are "DOING" beyond "TALK", this is EXACTLY what I'm talking about. Big ups to this group. The things they discribe that they are DOING in the Black community is awesome!! I have been aware of some of their other activities that I don't agree with, but the things mentioned in this article are wonderful. We need more REAL Black Nationalist like this.

    Fake Black Nationalist think they can define who is a "Real Black man", so I as a real Black man am entitled to define who is a real or fake Black Nationalist.

    Full Speed let's support those who support us. In other words we would be better served concentrating our energies on lending the time and resources to Black folks who are fighting tooth and nail to secure the life, strength and health of Black people, around the world.

    We are an injured people, and many Black nationalist, past and present have given their lives trying to bring about a healing process. Granted, I'm no Jewish scholar, but when I look at the Jews in the diaspora, particiliarly following the holocaust, it was nationalism (zionism) that upon all appearance, served as the impetus for the massive building and re-creation of learning and banking institutions. One could argue the interest in banking from an economical standpoint is fairly obvious, but why would they devote such enormous amounts of resources on building grade schools and Yeshivas? I'll leave that question open for discussion.
