  • As a African living in the USA, I think he may have a point with his t-shirt
    Seriously though, the vast majority of Americans think the whole of Africa is one country. They don’t understand the particular issues, crimes, violations, injustices, etc involved with each specific country. And at the heart of it, the truth is if their interests are not at stake they won’t do anything.
    I’ll continue to do my small part in trying to educate the people I meet and befriend.(Patricia.)

  • Greetings Patricia,

    As a white person and Uhuru Solidarity Movement member, it is my responsibility to go into the white community and inform other white people of the analysis of African Internationalism, a theory that was created by Chairman Omali Yeshitela, the leader of the Uhuru Movement and African People’s Socialist Party. USM organizes white people to take a stance of material solidarity with African liberation. This analysis also explains that African people are one people dispersed throughout the world due to them being kidnapped from Africa 500 years ago in order to build a diseased Europe and what is known as the US. African people, whether on the continent of Africa or in the ghettos of Philadelphia, face the same colonial terror from the white nation that seeks to steal the resources, labor and land. African people constitute a nation and the goal of the Uhuru Movement is to unite Africans to become organized and take back the resources that were stolen by the so-called West and rebuild the African nation.
