For anything? For a prolonged period of time? One of these days I want to take some time out and really understand how many supporters did MLK really have at the time. And How many supporters Malcolm X really had. Was it a lot? Was there a lot of infighting? If there were a lot, how did they manage to keep so many inline? (Well I guess the black community was split between Malcolm X and MLK.)
I want to venture to say that had we our own statisticians, historians, politicians, and doctors that we listened to I wonder if how we view ourselves would be less riddled with self-loathing that SOME have. Perhaps we'd be more in tact.
Just like in the Town of Kings story, the BC and I think many across the continent of Africa has this "I am the Queen" mentality. I am NOT saying its bad, nor that it needs to be fought against. But maybe if we accepted it, and devised different tactics corresponding to this mentality, perhaps we'd get farther faster?
Just putting the idea out, in case anyone can run with it.
