    Nothing wrong Aframs asserting that they are Aframs. Can't get with the xenophobia. Also that ADOS flag is ugly. LOL

    I've been wondering about that. Being that you're only half AA does that mean you only get half the reparations!? LOL

    Modern Pan-Africanism can't offer anything. It focuses on the wrong things like a simplistic form of unity, like all racial groups are united. Pan-Africanists should focus on intra-continental trade and getting rid of corruption.

    That flag is unofficial.

    Modern pan-Africanism at this point is only useful for Africans and people like the EFF of South Africa.

    You're not even American to begin with. And cotton and tobacco were the biggest money makers at the time which generated a lot of capital. Just like with sugar.

    Then we have stuff like this.

    Edit: What do you mean small workforce? Slaves outnumbered southern whites at the time lol.

    Modern Pan-Africanism isn't even useful for most Africans. As I said it focuses on the wrong things.

    Flags aren't important.

    Pan-Africanism in general is very vague and can mean anything. But under Julius Malema it can have good tangibles for the continent.

    The only reason blacks were in the USA was because they were slaves. The alternative was not some black dude becoming rich from his whiskey recipe, the alternative was that black dude was never in the USA in the first place.

    If you're going to come at it from that angle, it's still a story of a someone who had their potential robbed. The Africans with those ideas could've made similar alternatives in their own homelands, instead of being brought to a foreign land to work for free. The main point is that a huge population was robbed of their growth.

    Even after slavery was abolished, you had instances like Black Wall Street which were burned down by those who were angry at the prospect of black people having a functioning community.

    who knows what might have happened in a completely imaginary alternative world where slavery never existed? Slavery was perfectly normal and widespread in subsaharan africa. What's certain, however, is that black americans would not have been working in the US, running companies, getting college educations etc if they hadn't been slaves.

    Chattel slavery existed in Africa. Slaves were property, bought and sold.

    'black wall street' existed during segregation btw. In fact it was a product of segregation, and it only finally came to an end when segregation ended.
