    When will Black people as a collective become really liberated?

    How long will it take for every single Black person to know their history (not f'ing slavery but our Ancient Empires, our African Languages etc), wear their hair natural 100% of the time, becoming equal to White people in terms of statistics and getting rid of our negative stereotypes.

    40 years?

    80 years?

    180 years?

    If you think this will ever happen maybe you need to take a dose of your own medicine and learn your history. you will never be equal to the white man, even if you find the cure to all the world ills.

    That sounds a bit pessimistic.

    Back to the OP - I think in general we have to about a more socialistic approach within capitalism. Given that we were denied access to capital for a long time but then came civil rights and then without capital are working with all the materialistic yearning of capitalism.

    well something like - i ma trying to keep it short and simple....

    in a nutshell we have to recognize that we are different - not in a bad way - we try so hard to think that we are like them and then we mimic everything....

    and of there is the need to love oneself and recognize who we are....

    Okay not ''every single Black person'' lol but as a group you can say ''yeah they know their history'' something that can't be said for the present.

    Yes I know Africa is a continent but what do you want me to say instead, Nigerian history, Ghanaian history, Namibian history etc that's long...

    White Americans know their European history I want that to be the same for Black people around the world to know their ''home continent'' as it were.

    You could quicker learn about Greek Mythology than African history in schools.

    So true
    you really think the average american knows european history? history is nothing more than a set of beliefs, i see where you are coming from though. i dont even think we need a true reflection of history, just a couple hollywood style movies showcasing some nigerian gods instead of greek / norse. some heroic war movies showcasing the valient fights of the Zulus vs Bothas in SA, and a romantic love story about a black queen of sheba. and then people might have some more self pride.

    This will never happen. Too many Black people want to be white, assimilate, and have a homogenous society with no sense of pro Blackness or Black pride

    you ALL AGREE with my opinion, which is why NONE of you ever EFFECTIVELY DISPUTE IT

    you ONLY have faith in the WOMEN'S ability to ELEVATE which is why you only FOCUS ON WOMEN...you ALL have long given up on Black men

    you just don't have the BALLS to OVERTLY AGREE....rather just do it INDIRECTLY

    weak men only can deal with weaker women

    in the presence of strength you diminish...

    If we Black people in the West want to start being taken seriously by other groups then most of us need to start adopting African names that depict our role in contributing to the elevation of our race.
    That will be a good start.

    The calypsonian Maestro said it well in this calypso recorded in 1973 that was inspired by the 1970's Black Power Movement in T&T.
