    For all discussion regarding continental African + Afro-Descendant people. Afro-American, Afro-Latino, African, Afro-European, Afro-Arab & Afro-Caribbean folks

    EDUCATION

    Efforts have been made by our elders in the past to change this condition and it is now our time and our responsibility to continue this effort.
    Whether you are Afrocentric, Panafricanist, Black Panther or New Black Panther, Black Muslim or Hebrew, any other black ideology or just a humanist, I welcome you to share,teach, learn and plan about the future and past of afro descendants people.

    You have here a great opportunity to exchange ideas with other intelligent young people and maybe find a partner for a future greater project.

    In order to avoid fruitless efforts you must respect these rules:

    1. Try to find common ground with people who disagree with you. Don't forget why we do this and what is the bigger cause. Don't forget that we have something in common.

    2. Do not reply to trolls. This is very important. Anybody that is against the premise of this thread will logically NOT contribute anything constructive to this idea.

    3. Ask yourself if the heated discussion you are engaging in, is really worth it. There is always someone that would have been happy if you used your energy into helping him gaining knowledge instead of wasting it on someone you probably can't convince.

    Yes sir

    Got to build that mental armor cause that s*** ain't going anywhere. While you should be upset you shouldn't let it f*** with you deeply. Them nerds not gonna say any of that s*** without the protection of their computer screen. If the age of social media taught us anything it's that there's nothing "better" about today for us.

    I'm not sure what it is, but anti-blackness is just strong anywhere. We need to first educate each other (hopefully the list I posted does that), then unite and start moving as a unit to get things done. That includes everything from starting to build black political power worldwide to Reparations not only for us but Latin/Caribbean fam.

    We need to be contacting the UN as a collective at the same rate we're telling folks the new Popeyes chicken sandwich slaps (it does slap and I tweeted about it lol nothing wrong with that).
