Activists Seek Unity, New Definition Of Black Power

Jun 17, 2009 | Posted by: Inisa Love | Full story: www.finalcall.com

At a May 22-24 gathering, the South became the nexus of Black liberation and political thought at the 2009 National Black Power Conference, which was headquartered at the Roberts Crowne Plaza, a Black-owned hotel just outside Atlanta's city limits.

Organizational representatives from across the United States and those concerned with the future of the Black nation participated in the meeting.

The conference was co-convened by longtime scholar Dr. Leonard Jeffries and Atty. Malik Zulu Shabazz, of the New Black Panther Party.

Dr. Jeffries said historic Black Power Conferences are places where ideas are discussed and strategies are discovered. “We need to come together on a regular basis to do an assessment and an analysis to see how successful our plan has been and what mistakes we have made that require that we readjust the plan. It needs to be a think tank process, it is not an event,” said the elder and scholar, who was a technical advisor for the landmark 1970s film series “Roots.”

Real danger here of being the dog who chased the car, finally caught it, and didn't know what to do with it when he did.

When this Black group or any other starts lynching Whites, hanging Whites, burning Whites homes, shooting and bombing Whites' churches, burning crosses and flags in front of Whites homes and places of employment, dragging Whites behind pickup trucks, drowning Whites for looking at Black women.... etc...

Then yeah, this Black group can then be considered close to the KKK

NO Black group in American history is anywhere close to what the KKK were and are.

This statement you made, makes a complete and utter fool of you.

Stop trying to compare Blacks with White TERRORISTS

Your post is spam, the only danger here is that Blacks will start to unite which will bring considerable harm to Whites power structure (White privilege's domination of Capitalism)...

Even if that happens, that is still better than the systematic racial injustice of previous generations.

Wrong is wrong no matter where it is done, or who does it. I posted that because you seem to equate black self-liberation with degeneracy. No....I equate drug use, unwanted babies, welfare state dependency and general dissolution with degeneracy. And there are blacks who are just as bigoted as whites, and equally need to be told to go stuff themselves.

My only problem was: How can you equate unification and improvement with turning into a Third World country?

Your subject is a matter of extreme importance. As African, the matter of blacks throughout the world occupy a great deal of my concern. Since my (62 years old), my dream is how to contribute to the prosperity of black people.
Nevertheless, would you please provide me with more information about your organization and its basic system.
