Someone stated that Pan Africanism;

Inspite of the economic need for it right now to protect Afrcan nations from the IMF and World Bank extrotion

Inspite of the miltary need to use the military in defence of nationalization, and protection from recolonization,

is a pipe dream, because some feel that
even though hundreds of millions have

adapted to other relgions,
other languages,
other stlyes of clothing
and entertainment,
other tastes morals and values,
we are unable to adapt to thinking race first.

And by thinkking race first see our common problems and common solutions acrsso the continent

As one who at one time used to identify as a hard core pan Africanist, I won't say it is a pipe dream but it depends on how one defines pan Africanism and this needs to be done by continental Africans themselves who do not think race first. The present generation of African leadership is not the same as Nkrumah, lumumba, nyerere, toure, etc. pan Africanism died with kadafi.

It's not a dream, it's a task of tremendous proportion. If you read about Bismarck and how he unified Germany, you'll understand everything is possible. Bismarck is the only whitey I admire.

It will be a challenge. It's a pipe dream for those who aren't interested in it
and won't, in someway, contribute to it. I think it should start wherever
afrikans are. In or out of the motherland. I was listening to a radio show
online, from dc. I am hearing of organizations that are working to unify
afrikans from the diaspora and the motherland. The organization (the name
loses me) is spearheaded by two sistahs: one from the states and the other
from ghana.

I for one, don't think it is a pipe dream at all. African countries are already working with each other, and there are individuals like myself who have a definite desire to be on the continent working with Africans side by side. The differences you may see in Africa are, in my opinion, are a culture issue. You can affect a culture simply be controlling the environment. I actually think such a task would actually be much easier to do in a place like Africa than here in the states since, here, we don't control anything; however, over there, they control everything. All Africa really needs is some better management, and the problems can be more easily amended.

Pan-Africanism has never died; I just think that some AA's lost their faith and interest in it.
