"1. refuse to accept "universality" as either humanly possible or desirable.

2. critically assess all universalistic concepts, including monotheism, scientific objectivity, progressivism, abstract humanism; and reject them when they are found to represent European values only and to conflict with conceptualizations based on our own ideologies.

3. accept nationalism, that is, cultural commitment, as a potentially positive, liberating, and constructive expression of human energy, depending on the specific content and definition that is given.

If we are mindful of these cultural facts, European self-interest expressed as "universalism" will become highly visible as an expression of European nationalism and cultural commitment and will thereby lose its intellectual and ideological effectiveness. We will be able to recognize ourselves as victors. For it is now clear that European universalism acts to fulfill the expansionist utamaroho, as it serves the ideological function of utamawazo (cognitive structure) and the power needs of the asili (cultural essence). Rather than being understood, then, as the new nonpartisan morality of an international order, we must interpret universalism, in its European context, in terms of the particularity of the European asili. It is the quintessential statement of European nationalism."

Marimba Ani is so remarkably brilliant. To dissect the European Asili as she did was phenomenal.

I must say, that i strongly disagree with this assessment.
Scientific objectivity, progressivism and humanism are things that need to be better understood and embraced by blacks and africans.

Scientific objectivity is the only true path to reliable knowledge. These do not represent european values, they ARE universally applicable. Progressivism and humanism are superior to traditionalism and religiosity. It was in fact, the europeans embrace of these traits and rejection of their own backward traditions that allowed them to become strong and temporarily surpass others.

It is important to understand that the enlightenment is not a representation of european tradition, it is rather a subversion of tradition to the tools of reason and objectivity. These are for all mankind

Question: Do you have anymore of that stuff you're smoking? Once you accept the European concept of "OBJECT-TIVITY", that means that everything must be placed OUTSIDE of yourself in order to study and examine it. The object is a THING....something that can be seen, smelled, tasted, heard and touched. For Europeans, if it does not fall within that arena, it doesn't exist. That was one side. The other side is that, Objectivity is impossible because we are all a product of the cultures from which we all come which makes us unique and who we are as a people. This reality is what makes us all special. Objectivity according to European definition would erase this uniqueness and specialness because the goal of objectivity as they define it is to get us all to see it the same way, speak on it the same way, embrace it the same way and so forth. In fact, I'm even a little tired of calling them Europeans being that they only took that name for themselves after the "African Princess Europa" was kidnapped by them. Nobody wants to discuss that history because then we would have to once again ask ourselves; Who are they and where did they come from!!???

Furthermore, there are three species on this earth. Species one is MAN. This represents only black people. Species two is HUMANS. This represents white people. Species Three is MANKIND. Mankind is a hybrid of Man and Human mixing. More on that later.
