    Why has pan-Africanism failed to deliver on its promises ?



    As we celebrate the rich ideological platform of Pan-Africanism through blood, sweat and struggles of Black men and women.
    We must also examine why Pan-Africanism has not yet delivered as the total emancipator of the Africans.

    Todays Pan africanism was meant to:feeding the people,creating jobs and strengthening the middle class, prevent conflicts through preemptive or resolution templates,enhancing ecological well-being and preventing uncontrolled spread of plagues.


    In my opinion Pan africanism today is different from The first Pan-Africanists or Pan-Negroists were African Americans were fighting racism as well as racially-legitimised colonialism.

    Than Pan-Africanism was an adversarial, radical, anti-Western democracy struggle or an anti-white racial program.

    Today we see it as a Renaissance movement that focuses on establishing a particularly unified African identity while also positioning for global trade
    partnerships, poverty alleviation, qualitative education, superior healthcare deliveries, infrastructure development and maintenance, capacity
    development and utilization, scientific and technological development, investment and private sector development in a free market economy.

    Sadly ALMOST a hundred years after the first Pan-African Conference, it has failured to do any of this things.

    Pan-Africanism - aims at African unity first and foremost.

    But yet it has failured to prevent African states remaining economically dependent on Western metropolitan structures.

    Most of our Ideally Pan african leaders are merely servants,icons of the social
    group they stand for.we end up hating
    Those who are leader-oriented equate, for instance, Robert Mugabe and Zimbabwe's Chimurenga.
    This implies the need to rubbish all Zimbabweans who feel that Mugabe no longer speaks for them: "They are brainwhitewashed, ungrateful, treacherous and deserve being disciplined."


    Pan african leaders made the mistake of thinking Attainment of independence was an end in itself. There was failure to see that while the colour of those in power had changed, those who took over the reins were still human like their predecessors.

    The Pan African movement was largely anti-Colonial and now there does not seem to be much collective effort in eradicating neo-colonialism as crisis has become more localized.

    There's still alot that has to be done, but I think we as African-Americans have to tighten up the home front on things in our own community. I'm not against dialogue with Africans thats very good, but its us we have to worry about more, Africans have enough problems of their own.

    I agree we have to tighten up the "home front" and as far as I am concerned the process by which that needs to be done was clearly outlined by Dr. kwame Nkrumah in two books, "Class Struggle In Africa" and "Handbook of Revolutionary Warfare".

    In "Neo-Colonialism:The Last Stage of Imperialism" Dr. Nkrumah wrote extensively concerning the problem of Balkinization and the united states role as a neo-colonial power was exposed in "Dark Days in Ghana".

    By exposing neo-colonialism "at home" we further advance the cause of pan Africanism but this movement need unification and coordination "at home and abroad".

    Unification would be good, but alot of Africans I've talked to said at times we[African-Americans] seem a little indecisive about what we want. That cannot be if we are going to advance. Alot of people say we need another Malcolm X, but Malcolm was a once in a lifetime black leader. Black leaders is not what we need, what we do need is for more black men to act like real men. Black women got their act together, they don't half step.

    Thats not myth, thats reality. Most black men of course are successful and do the right thing, but its the attitudes of some of the younger ones that needs to change. Materialism and black on black crime involves mostly black males, not women. I agree that the system is set up to castrate black men and all black men know this, its a matter of action not just knowing.

    Thanks for clearing that up, this dispels the myth about black men.

    Really? Excluding yourself?

    This phenomenon has more to do with self-hatred than anything else. Moreover it has been complicated by the fact that black men are not killing each other for the sake of fighting, we're killing each other over turf and women. Indeed some black women have been complicit in much of this by virtue of their own greed and ambition. This problem applies to men of all races on different levels .

    Nonsense, I refuse to blame black women for any of this, if some of these younger black men would act like men instead of having this superfical, exaggerated, misrepresentation of what being masucline and being a real man really is, we wouldn't have all these problems. Bling-bling. money and expensive clothes does not a real man make. Taking care of family, getting educated and having a sense of self-responsibility things would change. my father is my biggest role model, he's a preacher and he set the right example, thats how it should be for all black families, no child should have to look outside of his/her family for a role model.

    This is in part the problem, DENIAL.

    Oh I see, all these problems are because of black males? gotcha! Nevermind the fact that the over-whelming majority of black people do not find themselves in this predicament, or the fact that the one's who do are doing it for what? women and a "rep.

    agreed! however in light of the alarming rate of STD's among teenage girls, I would have to say some mothers have done no better job with their daughters than fathers have with their sons.

    This is where the black male preacher has failed miserably for the last 25 years. Why are so few black males going to church? Maybe it's because our boys know that there is a fine line between preacher and pimp.
