    Do you think that there are significant numbers of folk who try to use Pan-Africanism and global black history to justify their worship of non-black "cultures"/groups?

    What do you think about this phenomenon?

    Ok, since I'm the first to vote I'll go ahead with my question.

    Are you referring to Afrikans that take the opportunity to worship non-Afrikan culture like, say, some people hail Olmecs? If so, can you give me an example?

    In any case, I haven't seen this trend - that is, unless I have misunderstood your initial question.

    I mean, how do you even use Pan-Afrikanism to worship a non-Afrikan culture?

    One,

    An example would be something along the lines of...

    Random person: I love me some Bollywood flicks and those chicks are so HAWT!


    Other random person: You know Nollywood ain't half bad bruh, why not throw some cash and love their way?


    Random person: THE ORIGINAL A-RAABS WERE BLACK!


    Other random person: I know, but bollywood actors aren't.


    Random person: How you gonna hate on our Dravidian bruvas and sistas?!


    Other random person: The Dravidians ain't making movies. They're in the bushes somewhere or on the edges of the cities getting terrorized by all those non-Dravidian types, you know, the ones making the movies.


    Random person: Eff you, you racist!

    Do you get the idea? lol
