First time logging in in two months and I see 3 garbage ass "ADOS" threads on the first page think I'm done with this internet shyt
Pan Africanism as a concept cannot be attributed to any one tribe of black people whatsoever. In my studies, I found many Afro-trinidadians, Afro-Brazilians, Afro-guyanese and Africans, who were inspired by their own unique experiences under slavery and colonialism that independently transformed them into pioneers in Afro Centricity. Saying that only one people are solely responsible for pan Africanism is insulting to the experiences of other black people. An afro-ecuadorian leader might not be as famous as du bois or even huey P newton, but that does not diminish what he stood for under his circumstances.
Where did the term "butter biscuit" negroes come from? And what is it actually referencing (historical, tv, movie, etc)?
Sad part is that pan-africanism and the ados movement are not mutually exclusive or at odds. They are in fact complementary. But for pan-africanism to work it means the Continent and the Diaspora need to have their individual, then collective, shyt together. Clearly that includes ADOS.
Didnt even know this forum existed....
Why I’m no longer talking to Nigerians about race.
Naija brehs, thoughts? (not being facetious here)
Non-Nigerians don’t understand Nigeria or Nigerians. So, I don’t pay her too much mind.
Facts. Reading through some of the topics in this forum today. Same feeling that I had earlier, I knew it existed but I didn’t realize the extent. The info and knowledge you learn about is enlightening when you kind of tune out some of the other chatter site b.s. and filter through the content here.
