"The responsibility of the Afrikan American community [is to ensure] Afrika's economic development. The ignoring of Afrika by the Western nations provide windows of opportunity open to native Afrikans to drastically reduce the massive outflow or flight of capital, which has been estimated to exceed 80 percent of the Gross Domestic Product, and to reinvest it in their own countries.
Afrikan peoples and nations across the Diaspora must apprise themselves of a full, ongoing knowledge of the social, economic and cultural history of Afrikan nations as well as their contemporary status and reorganize their sociocultural and economic structures so as to initiate and fuel continental Afrika's growth and development.
The Afrikan American community, especially, should vastly overhaul and reconstruct its educational orientation toward a knowledge of the Motherland. It must realize that its own economic salvation is coterminous with or tied to that of Afrika's. It must invest money and human resources in Afrika's development and perceive its economic prosperity as its special responsibility and mission…
The Afrikan American community must become vigilantly and jealously interested in U.S. and European policies toward Afrika and seek to influence those policies in both its own and Afrika's favor."

We must do things, yes. What ways have you found make these 'musts' most easy?
Simple Africans get over their religious, political, class, and tribal differences, just as they did in Nigeria to lower the oil prices! Kwame Nkrumah's crime to the colonizer was engaging in the same thing! It's called Common Sense!

That's the Master Plan? Lowering oil prices and uniting a continent are two very, very different things.

Please read the post over! I stated unity as they did in Nigeria to lower the oil prices! Nkhrumah was imprisoned for attempting to enact a national strike. The Master plan is simple unity, if folks can unite in one of the most divisive nations for something small, dont you think that from nation to nation they can unite for mutual protection and development?

Yes, but it is not so simple.

Yes unity is the goal but how?

You seem to suggest that step one to unity is unify. Sure. But if it were that easy do you think we'd be divided.

What is step one to you?

Simple! You are my brother, and though you have never seen my face I will break any law to save your family from peril!
Are we the same tribe? the same reigion? the same nation? political party?

it is because both you and I are Black, and if the Nigerians can forget those petty differences for such a small thing, Africans can forget their petty differences for a grand thing!

but lets be honest do they have a choice not to? What would be the consequence for the continents families in the next 5 years, without unity, as the world powers look at Africa like a piece of meat ready to grill?http://www.africanglobe.net/africa/africa-main-target-land-grabs-report/

With due respect, you do not appear to be involved in any activism whatsoever. As I walk through a 'hood,' and I see the Brother's with their big arms and tattoos, and the Sister's with their short skirts and blonde hair, I don't see 'step one' as "Simple . . . I will break any law to save your family from peril!" If your first plan is to break a law you'll only end up in jail.

We know the theory but what's the practice? Get your feet wet Brother. Then come back with a real plan. "Simple" won't liberate anyone. It'll only land you in Prison.

How old are you? How long have you been really conscious of the conflict? Seems like you just closed Malcolm's autobiography yesterday.
