    This is a terrible misrepresentation of what happened during slavery.

    Your ancestors did not sell you into slavery. Your ancestors more than likely lost a war to another group of people who then sold them into slavery. The self hate is disturbing in this post.

    I say this all the time, but it looks like it bears repeating. Pan-Africanism is NOT about who does what for who in the diaspora. It's about creating UNITY. PERIOD. It is definitely not for furthering disunity. Saying that unity amongst of the diaspora is something that should die is an ideal that I'm sure white supremacists and the people in power would jump for joy over.

    I have no fukking idea why or how the berating of Pan-Africanism has been inserted into a conversation that is SUPPOSED to be about reparations for ADOS but it just makes me even more suspect and skeptical of the entire movement and it's true motives.

    You are Shug Ross aka Retired Troll aka C00NMONGER aka one of the worst posters on this forum ever who's been banned multiple times for trolling and dap fishing.

    You're also the person who once made this thread:
    How would you guys feel if there was a White History Month

    And also showed up on this list:

    He didn't say that though. He said is he supposed to care about those who sold his ancestors into enslavement.

    How would that look? I'ma honor people that sent my ancestors off to die on a ship, or toss themselves the boat, or die getting "seasoned" for slavery,

    Not saying that he should honor the people who literally enslaved his ancestors. But he's disregarding his ancestors that were left in Africa that more than likely had NOTHING to do with his enslavement and his current disconnection with them. People who were more than likely VICTIMS rather than people who sent him off to die.

    Well, I get that -- but he didn't say what you are implying he said.

    He's writing off all of his ancestors in West Africa due to what a few isolated groups did. He is dismissing his ancestors in Africa that had their families torn apart by war, the slave trade, and then later imperialism and colonialism (mostly of the American flavor). It's short sighted logic and his blame is severely misplaced.

    And he has that right to disregard them -- as he doesn't know how they ended up enslaved. Also, this always gets placed on ADOS -- but we rarely -- if at all hear any remembrance or care by those who are still in Africa about those who were sent off.

    Sadly, many were sold by their family -- or an uncle or cousin tricked them and they ended up enslaved. It wasn't rare.

    I always wonder how MILLIONS of people can be sold into slavery -- yet there is no oral history or major conversation, remembrance, etc in those countries. Unless it's for slavery tourism. My family still talks about my enslaved ancestors.

    He has good intentions -- but I feel like it's not the time - we for once need to be about us for once.

    You are too well read to actually believe that. The vast majority of the enslaved were people who were captured during war. People weren't selling their own families.

    And again, Pan Africanism is NOT ABOUT RECIPROCITY. It's about BUILDING UNITY and rebuilding the disconnection we have amongst the diaspora. No one said it would be easy, no one said the job is complete. Even though the notion that Africans don't practice Pan-Africanism is HIGHLY OVER EXAGGERATED by those who argue against Pan-Africanism, as the most culturally relevant and influential people ON THE PLANET, ADOS being at the forefront of Pan-Africanism is not at all something to be ashamed of.

    wait til this idiot figures out you can rock with ados and support pan africanism

    or that you cannot truly support a pan africanist movement unless you also support ados, who are the main supporters of said movement
