I've had some critics on here that I don't have in real life situations talking to people about my visions of Black Nationalism. I can't equate this with envy or enemies of our struggle or just clashing prides. I think there's a fundamental difference in how many of us see this struggle for liberation and what can be the most complete solution. I myself do not view integration as a solution. I know there must be some sovereignty on our part in order to have the complete freedom to determine our own destiny in order to compete with the rest of the world in development. I've disagreed with some ideas that seem to me to run away from the goal of actual land ownership and sovereignty. Without self rule there's simply no way we can expect our full rights as human beings nor be able to fully offer our contribution to the world and achieve international respect. Our lives are valueless in a society where we have no more rights than Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin or Oscar Grant. Without land we can't build any structures, industries and infrastructure to demonstrate to the world what we are capable of as a people with an established long history and tradition as coming from West Africa. What are the failures of Black Nationalist organizations who claim they want and believe that African diaspora can have independent nation status? Where is the land? Besides Oyo Tunji there's not one other Black Nationalists organization that has decided towards land ownership. Also besides Oyo Tunji there's not one Black Nationalist organization that has been recognized by an empire in Africa. We are failing as Black Nationalists to see the vision of our fallen and ancestors who paved the way for us. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, Noble Drew Ali, Marcus Garvey and many others who spoke about, lived, and promoted Black Nationalism as not a theory but a practice. So when I asked can African Americans raise 5 billion dollars for the African Renaissance there have been naysayers who insist I'm not speaking of our local development as well. Not only am I speaking of local businesses and institutes but of gaining that traction needed by huge foreign investment in Africa. But more importantly, I'm speaking of sovereignty in terms of powerful institutions that would help facilitate nation building. But like all things nothing exists without foundation. So without treasury there can be no institution and without institution no nation building. Treasury is key because we all know that it's our enemies plans and tactics to keep poor those of us who are in dissent to tyranny and slavery. Elijah Muhammad was often quoted saying that the hearts of his people was his bank. Sure we can't get a 5 billion dollar loan from Chase or the U.S Treasury to finance our nation. No reparation checks are coming out anytime soon. So how do we expect to select land, build on it, found institutions and keep them running? BUILDING ENDURING INSTITUTIONS FOR NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT - Pat Utomi Further readings, http://www.jalumi.com/articles/black nationalism by fagbamila fagunwa 2006.pdf I don't speak foolishly but time is not to be wasted so take heed. We have very little time, in terms of a few years before total economic collapse. How will you raise up a nation with no money? With worthless money? Stop debating what is a forgone conclusion, we need treasury in the billions and we need strong institutions, we also need sovereign land in which to determine our own destiny. I'm waiting on your responses. Positive ones I hope. Sango.
