    How do you define unity?

    Is unity defined as an alliance between "Nationalists," Christians, Muslims, Capitalists, Socialists, Communists, Integrationists, Feminists, Passivists, Conservatives, Liberals, Entertainers, Athletes, and virtually anyone else under the sun regardless of their character, philosophy, behavior, mentality, history, attitude, agenda, and even their race?

    Who's including in this unity ??
    What are we going for ?? Black skin color alone ................Biege, brown, dark brown, red bone ??

    My point is Brother, What must we share in common to unify ??

    It has to be defined, with an clear obtainable goal, IMHO.

    When I think of black untiy, I believe it must start with building black families first.

    So I think.................. Peace

    All due respect the question is similar to "Do yo Love Black People " post

    this holiday has been established since the 70s and that is quite a while for the 7 terms to be made clear if not in definition but in heart, and i think your heart tells you exactly the type of unity this principle of UMOJA is stressing and the imperative need for it going into the the next year, moreso now then ever before.
