The United States of AfricaJust a thought: Africa? Why do nations of Africa move forward ONLY with European

 approval?

As I sit here at 12:39 am Tuesday morning reading about the importance of Frederick Douglass’s time abroad to regain his strength in his fight against slavery. I had a thought.

Douglass talks about how White abolitionists had to give they stamp of approve on the work of any Black man or woman who spoke out against slavery. As if Black people couldn’t think and execute their thought processes solely on their own?

This was the lead into my post.

Africa. Why do so many of your nations wait for the approval of European and Western interest before you begin to seek a brighter future for your countries economically, socially, intellectually and so on and so forth?

Is it in the psych of Black folks that we need others approval before we do anything?

The nations of Africa have the power to conquer anything, if they JUST do it. Stop waiting for the Euro Union and the IMF.

You have the people. You STILL have the land. You have the natural and strategic minerals which others seek for their tech advancement and military strength and energy resources.

Nations of Africa, drop your man-made borders and open your hearts up to one another.

Let the river borders and the borders drawn by others to divide you, blend into oneness.

Stake your claim in this new millennium.

For you are truly where the sun shall shine brightly in the years to come.

Artikleblak is a panoramic color-consciousness of digital media connecting the African Diaspora throughout the world. This world is a massive environment and our images and stories and concerns are spread to sparingly throughout the planet and digital terra. People of color comprise 4/5th of the world's population. Yet we have to Google search and channel surf and scour the event calendars to find ourselves, whether it be a person, place or thing. We should nevermore let oceans, languages, religions, cultures or man-made boundaries partition us. Our humanity is to powerful to remain fragmented, lets make it ONE again. Sincere thanks, Artikleblak
