what if black people in america could work together or at least unite for a common cause of bettering ourselves and the internal conflicts and tribal wars in africa wasnt like it was.
lets say the brains of the the black american and nigerians worked together to help lead the manpower of the war readiness and labor force of the millions of other africans.

how far could we go on this planet, being that most resources are in africa and those resources can be used to build a military that could compete with the US and build an economy that would dwarf the current world powers

    I'm resigned to the fact that it'll probably be 200 years before Africa even approaches its true potential.......maybe 300+ if they never find a AIDS vaccine

    answer to the what if scenario. if africa became just as powerful as the american empire then they would be just as unhappy with as we are with our country, and another third powerful nation would form. and so on and so forth because idiots keep thinking they can actually make a utopia. utopia exists only to become dystopias through out time. Africa would destroy america like rome killed carthage, or perhaps we would simply go the way of greece. welcome to the vicious cycle of people making the same mistakes over and over again. and i have to laugh at the t/s because this kind of thinking doesnt encourage change, it just encourages cowardice. run away from america because you dont have the spine to try and change it...smh

    Who? Who's picking us apart? Who are "THEY"? How are we being picked apart? Have you been personnaly picked apart?

    African & black diaspora leaders who tried to stand up against the machine have been picked off for the most part.

    we haven't had a real good fight against this beast since Toussaint Louverture in Haiti, Shaka Zulu in early 1800's, the Mahdi of Sudan in the 1880's & Menelik of Abyssinia in that same time period.

    One thing I hate more than whites in general is 🤬 in general.

    YOu cant even get most black people to admit there is a race problem let alone work together to combat it.

    THings would be much better for us if there was some sort of common purpose.

    this is the core issue right here. but black people know it's true in their subconscious but we have been traumatized by assassination. once the hits and wrongful imprisonments start poppin' off we usually scatter. this 🤬 is really war. no play play 🤬 at all.

    The thing about the assassinations is you arent supposed to follow a person but the ideals of the collective group.

    Cuz when that person is gone the movement dies with them.

    it's not about the person. THEY WILL ASSASSINATE THE WHOLE GROUP IF NEED BE.

    these muthufuckas done came at the black man so hard that in recent decades (1970's til present) we ain't even seen how turn't up it could get. we just try to forget (peep G&S for a great example. this is how the majority of our people are in real life as well.) AID's, 🤬 , 🤬 , heroin & malnutrition are a slow but effective form of biological and chemical warfare.

    they control the money supply, precious minerals & majority of farmland so they can send economic hitmen. an economic hitmen can offer a deal (job, payoff or connect.) if u reject? be prepared to fight til the death or lose freedom. furthermore, most of our people LOOOVE MATERIALISM SO THEY TAKING THAT PAPER AND CHILLIN.' no questions asked. they will also defend who gave them that paper by any means necessary. this is the "spell of kingu."

    bartering & self defense (legal & physical) are two important keys to dodging the white man's wraith.

    we also need to be able to provide our own health care in large groups along with building contacts with Africa and other places with large black populations.

    the white man just be playing with them Arabs. their real war is & always has been with us. if we get to the point of eradicating inner strife? we have to be prepared to sacrifice everything over and over and over for future generations.

    honestly, neither of these really seem like good ideas. and that's not even to say that the first three names you mentioned aren't awesome artists in their own right.
