Thank you. I appreciate this suggestion. It takes us off the same ole crap from the black hippie-ism from the 1960s. This is us. And Ultimately it affects each of us who are of African descent. We really do not have time for that other stuff of dumbly insulting Africanism and trying to bury our heads in sand and pretending that Africa does not exist. Self-hatred. We must get busy solving Africa's problems because by doing so, we solve our own local problems. With owning Africa, we would never have any need to live the b-,ore "projects". My family was dirt poor. I was born on a small share-cropper's farm. But I have never lived in the "projects". That is why I am so different, I guess. Now, I am passing on to my kids and grandkids a legacy that will make my name significant and important for centuries to come. It is simply by holding onto my heritage. Even if my own sons are too stupid to carry on the legacy. I have a couple of grandsons and grand daughters who are already prepared to carry on. My point is we have to own being African. And when we do, that is the first step towards solving our problems. W e cannot solve our problems by pretending that they do not exist and all we need do is copy the white man, ape the white man, parrot whatever the white man says. That won't work. And I have no patient for perverts and fools who claim that it will work. I am in the center of the storm simply because I have spent a lifetime fighting fools like Sissy Savant and Proud Sis.Looting Africa - Patrick Bond
I am proud of what I have done in my life for the most part. And all I am really trying to do is share it with others. And what I have to share is not material wealth but moral principles: Nkrumahism. To hellll with liberalism and hippie-ism.
