Back in 2007, FOX News (for folks in Africa, etc., its a U.S. right wing propaganda news channel) show "Hannity and Colmes" aired a segment featuring someone identified as Ted Hayes. This person was presented as a "right wing street activist in Los Angeles, California, U.S." with a group called "Choose Black America." On that show, Hayes presented his group as a foremost organization in African political thought throughout the U.S. as it relates to their position against Indigenous (or what you probably call Latino) immigration into this country. Of course, FOX News in general, and their Sean Hannity in particular, couldn't identify the truth if it slapped them across the face. So, it shouldn't surprise anyone in the know that this show went on to lift this person and his group up as a legitimate voice in national discourse around immigration in this country. The truth is this so-called "Choose Black America" was really a front group formed by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), a European dominated and led organization that has pushed against immigration for brown people for years.

At the risk of being thought a "sycophant," once again Ahjamu, you have presented an analysis of our situation that is on target and when looked at from a practical perspective, each of us can do our little part to spread this clear message. The intelligentsia is obligated to use its knowledge to uplift our people, casting down our buckets where we are.

Neither Darnell not Moore are opportunists. Many Nigerians, South Africans or others in diaspora come from wealthy families and are disdainful at best of African Americans. If we are honest some of their ancestors participated in slave trade as sel!ers.

Your accusations against continental Africans can be applied to Africans born here also family. Many of us exploit and capitalize off of each other and our oppression. This isnt a where we are born issue. This is s class struggle among African people issue (as you said well off Africans wherever born).
