Time for a Change in Leadership

We need to replace the historical 60’s era Afrikan leadership whose primary objective was towards integrationism and assimilation within external cultural realities. The reason? That latter orientation impedes them from truly believing in or advocating much in the direction of self-determination. Each step towards kujichagulia is for them either (a) a waste, since they don’t believe in the potential of their own people to provide for themselves or (b) a danger, because if the people UNDERSTOOD that they could do for themselves, their own legitimacy as guardians and managers of the people on behalf of the system would be undermined. These leaders and their organizations should and must be systematically replaced with a group of younger warriors, technically, physically, and intellectually trained to be future-oriented leaders focused on the construction and maintenance of our own cultural and social realities and institutions outside of Eurocentrism.
