Pan-Africanism : Arabs cannot be Pan Africanists

This is one of the most powerful statements I've ever read!

naiwu osahon the convenor and principal sponsor from 1982, of the 7th pan african congress of the pan african movement.

To quote the famous historian and a leader of the Pan African Movement, Prof. John Henrik Clarke, "When Africans were surrounded by Africa, they walked on it, bathed in it, ate from it and were not conscious of it. All of a sudden, now as slaves, having lost Africa, they began to be conscious of it. On the boat were Ibos, Urhobos, Ashanties, different people from different parts of Africa, speaking different languages and had different customs, but the Africans realised they were all Africans, and were on the same boat with the same predicament, and suffering the same tragedy."

The Pan African Movement came about as a reaction to racism and colonialism and these twin evils have not subsided, rather they have become more debilitating, reinforced with neo-colonialism.

So far, Pan Africanism has reacted more seriously against White imperialism than the Arab variance that pioneered the Black slavery holocaust and has continued since, becoming even more virulent now under the cloak of subtle religious platitudes.

The OAU as a geographical compromise helped to diffuse the issue and blind Black Africa to the plight of their kith and kin racially marginalised and suffering severely in Northern Africa. With their membership of the OAU, the Arabs were allowed to attend the 6th Pan African Congress in Tanzania in 1974, which they promptly disrupted by insisting that Africans do not need a global institution or league. To press their advantage home, they forced the congress to adopt Arabic as an official language.

In fact, OAU Abuja conference of 1992 would not have been able to pass its landmark 'Reparations' resolution if any Arab Head of State from Northern Africa had been in attendance. Even so, the OAU resolution deliberately avoided mentioning Arab culpability and liability in the African slavery holocaust.

So it is obvious that Arabs are not Pan Africanists. Quoting Prof. Clarke again: "Arabs always act as though they are not in Africa. Once when I was visiting Egypt, I told my Egyptian Arab host to get a cab ready for the next morning that I was going to Kenya. So you are going to Africa to visit your people? We got no diseases here, why are you leaving us, the host asked?"

"The Arab in Africa will always be an Arab. They never were Africans and never would be. The Arab commitment has never been to Africa and will never be. This is the first self liberating truism every Pan Africanist must learn before they can seriously liberate Africa from all comers Africa is sandwiched between the Arabs in the North and the Whites in the South. Africa must fight her way through and win. All of Africa must come under African control. There are no two ways about this. No second guessing and no apologies. We must take control from Cape to Cairo."

This has been the principal philosophy behind the new spirit of Pan Africanism which we have been promoting in the Black world

Based on the experience of a brutha who was a delegate to that Congress told to me and another sistah, I doubt if much "force" was needed. In 1974, black women had started wearing corn rows, and most of the sistahs at 6 PAC were wearing them. Turns out the Arabs didn't like that the American women chose to wear corn rows. They cornered this brutha and a couple others and DEMANDED that they make the sistahs take down the corn rows.

Now at this development, my friend and I are waiting to hear some baaad-a retorts our older friend laid on the interlopers. NOT! Ole boy said, instead, that when "commanded" (not his word, mine) by the Arabs, they went to the sistas and "asked" them to take down the corn rows and wear their hair in afroes because the Arabs didn't like them. The sistas complied (with the 'pretty, please?') and the U.S. bruthas "saved face" before the Arabs by showing they could "control" their women.

Anyhoo, :10400:we're waiting to hear what happened next, and he just goes on to another subject. My friend and I looked at each other, but unfortunately, neither of us were "impolite" enough to say: "So what did you get in return for that concession? You know, as in I give you something, you give me something...." But alas. Showing they could 'control' their women to the Arabs was the fly bruthas' reward.

1619+400=2019 Jamestown Virginia...end of slavery. (Yes modern miseducation and injustices count as slavery) But no proper reparations will be given since the amount of contributions beyond humanity transcends generations. Our people have history that is equal to trillions of dollars including Melanin research and its supernatural power.
I want my people to be aware of this dilemma regarding the upcoming election... I know politics. Yes Trump is admitting the truth about Black People building this so called country corporation (The United States). But you must understand that what they're planning on doing is to divide and conquer. This is all just for him to get re-elected. He's going to promise reparations and reneg at the last minute.
