The point is Africa is Africa now, and let us be adult about this, in many nations there are hundreds of thousands who dont even know their ancestral language only the White mans forced language. For thirty years I have heard folks say national borders were forced on Africans well if that is the case an there is a spirit among the grassroots to, as you say go back to multi ethnic and multi cultural, why is there such a recalcitrance to that right now in the ipad age, 40 years after liberation?. For one...one would assume if there was the former sentiment as you say Pan Africanism would not be something we are discussing as a wonderful idea in some glorious future, but instead something we could look back at and count the achievements of, as well as be discussing how much we as Africans in the diaspora should be trading and investing in a Pan African continent of unified people, unified without uniformity.
Why? Because of cultural genocide! 40 years after what liberation? I didn't get that memo, oops e-mail! :( Are you kidding? Afrikans on the continent are just as corrupt and culturally confused as Afrikans in this country. Most of us in this country are Europeanized. In the motherland they are Arabized.

I beg to differ! The nation state is a European concept imposed on Afrikans by Europeans. Afrikans developed territorial states with loose, porous boarders that were multi-ethnic and multi-cultural. Cultures fertilizing cultures, competing to be better not to dominate and destroy each other!
Some see things only as the are now, not as they were and were in our peoples best interests...

I. e., some folks destroyed what they found out of envy, others on the basis of their fears...

Neither reflects the hype of them being 'superior' and others 'inferior'...

Just the opposite...

Hence how somebody justifies the crime maters not, other than reveal the crooks they are...

Yes, today's african nations reflect advances and retreats, but we just helped to elect one african american this nation's president, whereas africans do have some sayso over who leads their nations, as a given...

I. e., in spite of the hype, africans on the continent have far more options, than we do here...

FYI...

Arabized Europeanized? So you support White Supremacy with your defeatist attitude? All due respect you sound like someone who has not read any African American history from reconstruction to the Black Power Movements, and read no pre colonial African history at all, cause if you did you would realize that there is nothing we cannot accomplish; or change within us!
