Not a Copying Kind of Cat

I truly am a Garveyite when he says “Africa for the Africans”, not merely a piece of land, but the restoration of Afrikan ideas and institutions for Afrikan people. If you look at my first three books I work on politics, economics, and education. All three begin with Afrikan philosophical principles and develop Afrikan forms for those things, not Afrikan versions of what Europeans do. In my mind if a “black” school is a “black” version of a “white” school, it might as well be closed. Similarly, if a “black” capitalism as it is often called is a “black” version of “white” capitalism, or worse, a justification for the legitimacy of the former, I would find it personally problematic.
