In light of recent discussion in these threads I pose this question as a means of possibly making this my final post. Since the 1970s I have studied various "African" ideologies and spiritual system. I have recognized the similarity in some, contradictory aspects in others, and opposing tendencies as well. When discussing solutions to the myriad of problems facing Black and/or African people it seems that many times our political and spiritual ideologies, strategies, beliefs run counter to each other. Perhaps this is a reflection of our "diversity". Or simply the fact that we are incapable of developing a truly African Centered WORLD View. What do you think?
