Looking at the current condition of Black people on a Global basis, we can easily see that we are struggling. In America alone, we have enough purchasing power to be our own independent nation. So why aren't we building one?

Even though the overwhelming majority of our people are mentally dead, there are those of us who are alive and well. I would dare to say that there are enough of us to begin building a nation, but where do we start?

What needs to be done? How do we unite our people? How we maintain that unity? How do we provide education for our youth?

Brother, first of all you can not really talk about beginning something that began long ago as if from Martin Delaney on down there has been no Nation Building process. When you ask "why are'nt we building one" this doesnt recognize those who have come and gone and died in the struggle to Build a Black Nation. It is this struggle which has led to concept/movement known as Black nationalism.

What needs to be done? You said in another thread it begins with Self.

How do we unite our people? Depends on who "we" are and who "our people" are. Black nations do exist.

When "we" is defined and who "our people" is defined then I will address the remaining questions.

Note:So far 18 views.

In no shape or form am I trying to take away from the "Nation Building" that went on in the past. My only concern is the Nation building that is going on now. We can't dwell on went happened back then. We have to move forward.

Now, I'm all for using the concepts that worked in the past, here in the present. But at the same time, we can't dwell on what others have done. We have to stand on their shoulders and continue building a prosperous Black Nation.
