The number one rule in American Democracy is  Majority rules. For most legislation to pass in the halls of American government 2/3 must vote and the most “Yay or Nay” pass or defeat proposed legislation. It’s not enough for Black people to just unify for the sake of race alone because what good is race unity if it is not organized from a seat of Power and Authority.

Black unity needs organization mobilized and centralized. Example, the Mormons unified than mobilized their unity than centralize it to Utah. Black people need to do the same here in America. Yes we have a Black President today, cities with Black Mayors and City councils but the White Majority in America controls Federal and State affairs. So it’s not enough in these times, nor was it in the past for us to integrate with the Majority group that controls American society.

  1. It saddens me, as an African, that we have, in the Americas, allowed ourselves to stray from our innate collective family/community construct. We are forced to learn again the significance of our historical unity. Our civility has dualistically impacted our existence. On one hand we possess the moral obligation to respect others and their ways. Unfortunately my people are the only ones disseminating morality. We have suffered the injuries of our battles in this nation both psychologically and physically. We still are”equating success with concessions.” For Africans to prevail in any part of the world, we must refuse to focus on anything outside of our specific needs. Our mistake has been the miss use and erroneous application of principle. True integration is only established when two peoples have equally established powers and from that reality, can come to mutually excepted practices within society. Assimilation is integration out of balance. It is the affect that occurs when the disenfranchised mingle with those in power, the outcome is representative of the will of the powerful. Our people have to fix our minds first, we have to define our culture first, and then we can establish the unity needed for growth & development. But under assimilation we have surrendered collectivism for the material adornments of individualism, all at the expense of cultural dissolution. Until defining who we are is no longer tertiary, we will continue to be the product of our current existence, a divided people and perpetuators of foreign cultures. No team is successful without the desire to meet common goals. We must give back that which is not ours, for if we possess land and bring this current reality with us, we then would be the colonizer. For the strong need not manipulate the scale of balance to expose their strength, they use balance to allow the weak to expose themselves.

    • Land in the context of this article does not necessarily imply land or nation outside the continental US. Black people are right in asking for land within these U.S. Better yet, we do not have to ask for land. We have the resources and intellects to perform a migration to whatever State in the Union we decide. Sounds impossible does it. Well thats how others came to America. Those like the Mormons and Quakers set out with that type of determination to develop a land they could call theirs.
