For All Points-Of-The-View.
I am disgusted by the tone and expressions of the the note inserted below.
It is past time to take stock of our selves and set aside our childish behavior or get off the stage.
Cut it out!!!
It is a shame that the two premier Pan African organizations should engage in this public fratricidal brawl - no different that the current state of the state war current on the African continent.
I am so happy you don't have access to guns.
What's the point to all our African Studies if you and I are not able rise about our base instincts.
Dear brothers, UNITY is not UNANIMITY.
IT IS NECESSARY, ALWAYS, TO GIVE UP SOME THING TO CREATE UNITY.
As long as we are fascinated by our own grandiousity and the reverberation of our own voice the status quo at "home and abroad" IS the status quo.
What are we really committed for our selves and our people?
What are we committed to as a now possibility - as a way of being that would result in an outcome called UNITY and FREEDOM.
UNITY and FREEDOM are outcomes - results, product of our commitment and the the way be about our selves and the world we live in.
It requires always that give something up and be responsible for choosing and accepting another's point-of-view.
So what are you committed to?
What are you will to give up to create an outcome and result called UNITY and FREEDOM?
By all means stop, stop, stop, this blasted demeaning comversatiom

New Afrikan Consenous Models are abundant throughout the New Afrikan Liberation Community. either we begin to use to the tools or stop fakin' the funk. it is hard, if not impossible, to win the war against our external enemies when we are fighting internally. "Of all of our studies, history is best qualified to reward our research." when we study Malcolm's story, we can begin to image the work that could have been done for our people had he and Martin King got together earlier. i prayer that our people, in particularly "our leaders", do not continue to make the same mistakes and expect different results.
“America's greatest crime against the black man was not slavery or lynching, but that he was taught to wear a mask of self-hate and self-doubt.” - Guess who?
Y M Hotep:
Honored by the succinct words of power and wise focus in Maat shared above by Kwasi Akyeampong and the solution driven replies herein. Synthesizing our use of the African Consensus paradigm, in 2010 members of several Pan African organizations communally hosting African Liberation Day in the United Virgin Islands (on multiple islands over a 4 day period) prepared an international statement and press release requesting the expeditious resolve of internal imbalances exhibited from WADU and PADU to support efforts for Organizing our African Diaspora and beyond. (Anyone desiring a copy of that correspondence may request it via email to firstname.lastname@example.org )
In light of the work witnessed, observed and engaged in as RAevolutionary cadre for our liberation, unification and social ascension as Indigenous Ancestral AfRaKan people, the following quotation from one of our illustrious DOERS, PRACTITIONERS and MAATIKAL LEADERS who's life was snatched like many of our other progressive, positive freedomfighters and leaders will be shared- (note this writer shares this having had the living experience and honor of working with and learning from him and many within his administration in the 1980's) :
"It must be proclaimed that there can be no salvation for our peoples unless we decisively turn our backs on all the models that all the charlatans, cut from the same cloth, have tried to sell us for the past twenty years. There can be no salvation without saying no to that. No development without breaking with that.
Moreover, all the new 'intellectual leaders' emerging from their slumber, awakened by the dizzying rise of billions of men in rags, aghast at the threat that this famished multitude presents to their digestion, are beginning to revamp their speeches. In an anxious quest, they are looking in our direction once again, for miracle concepts and new forms of development for our countries...
These men of Africa and the Third World must come back to who they are--that is, to their societies and to the misery we have inherited. They must understand that the battle for a system of thought at the service of the disinherited masses is not in vain. They must understand too that they can only become credible on an international level by being genuinely inventive, that is, by painting a faithful picture of their people. This picture must allow the people to achieve fundamental changes in the political and social situation, changes that allow us to break from foreign domination and exploitation that leave our states no perspective other than bankruptcy...Homeland or death, we will win!"--Words of the Honorable President Thomas Sankara of Burkina Faso from a speech delivered in 1984 to the UN's 39th General Assembly in New York.
There's more but this is a maatikal recommendation for the internal warfare within our PanAfrican movement to be minimized and actually cease to strengthen and insure our engagement, participation and complete implementation of AFRICAN UNITY for the prostablishment of a Union of African States/Nations, an African World Union and/or a United States/Nations of Africa. May we move forward progressively in harmony for the greatest and highest good for our people, our lands, our resources, our spirit and beyond. Disrespect is disrespect and juvenile counterrevolutionary behaviors and slander have no place in our AfRaKan People's Liberation with Unification Agenda. (period) Wathint'Abafazi Wathint'imbokodo! (Now you have touched the women, you have struck a rock.) We are moving forward ever and upward always for our VICTORIOUS ASCENSION IS CERTAIN. One God One Aim One Destiny.

"...PADU, the Pan African Diaspora Union, a role model organization of organizations (i.e., a partnership of African-centered organizations based on unity without uniformity), offers the following Ma’at Principles to be used in organizing the African Diaspora. We can get there together if we discipline and monitor ourselves. PADU’s recommendations here are taken from SRDC Ma’at (see www.srdcinternational.org), aka, the Sixth Region Diaspora Caucus, and it, in turn, is based on a modern interpretation and pragmatic summation of the 42 Principles of Ma’at:..."
