    Especially at a time in our history that we need it the most, to protect the black community from ther
    obvious
    impending economic
    and politcal attacks,

    and at a time when we have a trillion dollars spending power,
    and a communications technology,
    that El Hajj Malik Shabbaz and Dr Martin Luther King coud never have imagined

    White people and ourselves. It's something that was never intended for us to have, since black people were brought here on the boats. We have been brainwashed to believe that what we have is good and we are satisfied with a blanket of lies.

    IMO, I believe that it's all a distraction/ploy to keep us focused on something else other than ourselves.

    To answer your question: lack of knowledge of European history, customs, law, politics as well as lack of understanding of commerce.

    To have black nationalism means separatism from whites, and the establishment of self governing black communities. So the question is,are we able to do this? Think about how we are interconnected with America and ask if we can just "beak off", and become self sustaining?

    Peace!

    No,I have to disagree. There is a multitude of blacks that can fill this bill. If we want to be separate from whites, we have to determine to what degree. If it means our own lands,how will we force people to move that don't want to move? If we do it by force,then we are no better than the whites we point the finger at.

    Peace!

    Brilliant assessment.
    I think some are already doing that....building economies, communities....in their own way. Separation may happen, but we are a long way off. We (myself included) are too embedded in this society, dependent on Western languages and the culture. Im not saying that it wont happen, but I think it is more in the doing, than the talking.

    Brutha,you have hit the nail on the head. Case in point. I'm a Vet, I get close to 3k a month. Now,If we go our way, will our gov. continue to pay me that? Also, these monies will have to come from the black population since we will be on our own. It's simple to want this but hard to achieve it based on this type of scenario. We won't talk about all the other social services we will have to fund. The big thing will be money, if we have our own money, what if it's not recognized by the rest of the world?

    Peace!

    the system of white supremacy blocks our focus.
    that is what it is designed to do.

    I will preface this by saying that I would LOVE TO BE PROVEN WRONG about what I am about to say, but here is the disconnect. The people who are most vocal about Black Nationalism and separation from White people have no concept of these types of logistics. They are not building businesses and hiring Black people. They are not concerned with the mechanics of a stable prosperous society. All they really know is that they hate White folks and want to be "free" from them.

    Those who are most vocal about "freedom" and Black Nationalism are least likely to take SUBSTANTIVE ACTION towards establishing the necessary steps toward the freedom they claim they seek. They are too busy alienating potential allies (other Black people who do not think exactly like them) by refusing to unify with them unless they think and behave as they think they should. (This means you don't ever have to DO anything positive for Black people, you only have to talk the "I hate all White people" talk)

    The concerns you mention here such as ongoing retirement benefits and such, fake Black Nationalist aren't even capable of thinking on this level. They are in LaLa land and do not understand the difference between talking about establishing Black Soveriegnty and actually doing it. Show me one so called Black Nationalist or Black Nationalist group who are actually DOING ANYTHING that are substantive steps towards setting up a viable soverign society which takes into account Black employment, education, health care, and prosperity.
