We Must critique us

An Afrikan may develop an idea or practice or tradition on our behalf and for good intention, but that does not mean that I or you or we collectively MUST accept it or continue it. In fact, we have even MORE of an obligation to thoroughly critique its effectiveness, efficacy, and relevance to the PRESENT state of economic, social, and political affairs for the masses of the people. We are as capable of bad ideas, bad behaviors, errant strategies and tactics as any other people. And we are particularly susceptible to the unintended consequences of our ideas when they are implemented in the context of Eurocentric society and white supremacy ideology.
