    A young black woman told me that integration was a failure, and that we were better off under segregation! She said we should return to segregation. What do you think?

    Interesting comment. I found a copy of the Final Call newspaper dated March 1, 2016, on the sidewalk at the bus stop, on my way to the library just now. On page 37, under the paragraph Segregation vs. separation, Minister Farrakhan paraphrases Minister Malcolm X, i.e. "There is a difference between segregation and separation, Min Farrakhan noted. Segregation is imposed on an inferior by a superior. Separation is voluntary by two equals". Naturally my antenna went up when I noticed that separation was spelled with a lower case s, and segregation with a upper case s. I decided that it must have been an honest typo, because they got it right in the last sentence. Smile Both words are capitalized. I am a separatist. Under segregation we would still be dominated by whites! What say you subsequent to this clarification?

    Interesting indeed. I used the word seperate lower case based on the placement in the sentence. Your excerpt from the Honorable Final Call is true in my opinion. Separate would mean over a very short period of time pulling all our money out of intergration. This would prove our value and open the door for many needed opportunities for a separate community

    The separation that Malcolm X envisioned was in essence total economic, political, and social control of our communities in the United States. I.e. owning and controlling all of the real estate, shops and businesses, and social institutions that socialize, educate, and train our people. This objective will necessitate war with Europeans, because oppression and exploitation are very profitable to them. We have to take the profit out of it!!!

    What's the point in talking about something that has a 0% chance of happening? Might as well start a thread about what superpower we would all like to have.

    Black American mindsets need to change. What is it that we currently lack that prevents us from controlling our communities right now? What good would separation do us if our minds are still in chains?
