    On the 12th of this month a debate between Blackson and Ank on The Arena went down on the Topic of Black Nationalism.

    Should Black People Unite? Is it sensible for Black Christians, Hebrews, Moors, Muslims etc... to come together and unite for a common cause, or should each group fight individually?


    This debate got heated and then got out of control for a minute, but eventually things settled.


    You can check the debate out below

    This Saturday the 19th at 9:00 Central (I believe) is The AfterMath, where BlackDaugher and Onyx Daughter will discuss some of the points brought up in the debate.

    Peace,

    It's a great idea but religion as an institution separates people. Believers and unbelievers. Jews and gentiles. Heathen and righteous. One would think that we could unite just on the basis of us being "original people" yet that hasn't been the case either. So ultimately there has to be something we have in common (besides a common enemy), something we all recognize which could give us the grounds for unification. In my nation we teach that the foundation for all things is KNOWLEDGE. Things like belief and faith will continue to keep our people apart from their social equality.

    With that said we'll be able to come together for short bursts of time for very specific determined ideas. Nothing lasting though. Some things need to go away before we can have lasting unification.

    Peace
    Precise

    with 800 billion per year, all the gadgets and gizmos of high technology, and the worlds intellectual resources at our fingertips, how is it sanely possible that 2 grown Black men would have the time, to debate wthere Malcolm was right or not 50 years later, with all the hell the Black community is faceing for not following 2 percent of the advise he gave us??

    I don't understand?

    Dr Francis Cress Welsing said we talk about a problem and discuss a problem and debate the same problem and just before we get to a solution, we go back to talking about the problem again

    I think we like to talk, and we like to talk about problems too!

    Can we unit? I think so. but it doesn't look that way. It seems we rather argue then get any thing done. Not always fortunately!

    EXCELLENT POST BRO. BROWN....

    IS IT POSSIBLE WE CAN UNITE ??......OF COURSE IT IS.....

    REGARDLESS THAT A LOT OF US STOOD AGAINST & CRITICIZED MLK...
    REGARDLESS THAT A LOT OF US FEARED MALCOLM & KEPT THE " YASSA BOSS " MENTALITY...
    REGARDLESS THAT A LOT OF US LOOKED AT HARRIET TUBMAN AS A FOOL AND STAYED PUT ON THE PLANTATION...
    REGARDLESS THAT A LOT OF US DON'T SEE EACH OTHER THE WAY WE SHOULD.....

    I HAVE SAID BEFORE THAT IT WILL TAKE SOMETHING CATASTROPHIC TO HAPPEN TO US ON A WIDE SCALE BEFORE WE WOULD UNITE & TAKE ANY ACTION...

    MANY OF US WOKE UP WHEN WE SAW OUR OWN BEATEN , HOSED , AND ATTACKED BY POLICE DOGS ON TELEVISION......AND MANY OF US TURNED A BLIND EYE TO IT.....

    I BELIEVE IN MY HEART THAT FOR EACH ONE US THAT CHOOSES TO SELL-OUT.....THERE WILL BE THREE OF US THAT CHOOSES TO FIGHT....

    PERSONALLY , I DONT CARE WHAT ANOTHER BELIEVES.....AS LONG AS HE/SHE CAN HAVE MY BACK WHEN THE STORM COMES......I WILL DEFINITELY HAVE HIS/HERS........

    AS FAR AS PULLING TOGETHER RIGHT NOW AND PUTTING A PLAN IN ACTION......IM ALL FOR IT......THAT'S WHY I JOINED DESTEE.COM

    Everyone isn't your brother or sister. It's just that simple.

    VERY TRUE...

    AND THAT MAKES IT EASIER FOR ME TO SEE.....

    HOWEVER......I CHOOSE TO FIGHT.....

    AND I DON'T HAVE TIME TO WORRY ABOUT WHO IS DOWN AND WHO ISN'T...

    IN MY OPINION , THE SELL-OUT HAS A MUCH HARDER FIGHT ANYWAY....

    AND THOSE WHO WOULD RATHER SIT & JUDGE , ARE NO MORE THAN SITTING DUCKS....

    IT'S JUST THAT SIMPLE....

    Things are different here in NYC the NOGE respect assistance and encoragement from Christians, Christians are about half of the students at Ausar Auset andd Queen Afua, and the NOI are always working with this church or that regarding youth issues.
