I tried joining a sports board with a section for Africana. They used my positive van Sertima Americas stuff among others. They even credited me by name. Despite that they have yet to answer my request for membership.
Walker's yahoogroup is shriveled, no interest. Rashidi's group may still be active.
I only got one pro to come to TNV before I shut it down.
Don't know why university Africology and Africana students, ASA, BSU, etc, have no interest in forums?
You can email dept heads. You can snail mail schools' ASA & BSU chapters. You can't get 'em to participate here or ES (well they wouldn't be much interested in the current ES anyway).
This is not an era Africana has mass appeal. On the street Reggins are buying "urban novels". Well established Black Bookstores have shuttered. The more phony integration the less concern for black matters.
Yoooo OP Please hit my inbox if you ever log back on.
Anyone know of any other black history forums? The watered down Afrocentrism and the clear integrationalist agendas are ALARMING!!!
Lipstick Ally is still around aren't they? Hmmm watered down Afrocentrism?! If you are talking about this forum, you might be confusing Afro-Eccentrism with Afrocentrism two different things,if an old or dated theory is not up dated in light of new evidence, then what good is it, and that new evidence itself need to be vigorously tested, this is soft science not engineering and math.. investing heavy emotions in any theory that can be over turned by a shovel full of dirt a newly discovered text or a tweaking of a strand of dna can cause much stress.
Integrationist?? well given the nature of the internet and this board which is opened to all you might have a point, a narrow point that is.

25-50 yrs ago we could afford imprecision and bomblast (if only to drum up some mass interest). Independent Afrikan minded Africana was just knustling into the mainstream. It's an entirely new millennium now, a new age a'borning. Everthing must get stringently revisited. The criterion, mind you, no greater than applied to whites and others.
The masses don't much care, nor should they. We're just one cadre of Flame Keepers not allowing embers be a finale. Some cadres to come will fan the fire for a generation more interested generation.
Everything is cyclic.
Integration: There are two kinds • natural; folk meeting & mingling cos they wanna • forced; phony assimilation/kowtowing into dominant culture.
In reality, is the latter possible? One can't assimilate a colour, lips, nose, and so on. Assimilation is doomed to fail the mass until slave legacy no longer breeds bias, prejudice, hatred and envy.
Now the former is the normal world of us beautiful people. Inner beauty. Secure, confident, inviting. Strongly, grounded in ancestral heritage(s) w/o chauvinism.
I have been lucky and happy to be a natural, amicably reppin mine when in international/interracial settings or reasoning & relaxing with my own extended worldwide black fam.
Segregation: • natural; birds of a feather ... • forced; nasty antisocial stuff, whether enforced from outside or in.
True..it was never about keeping "others" happy, truth have no bias, it is what it is and in our case it remains so until new tested evidence is put forth, and even then it may never be the final truth. Ex the truth until about 2yrs ago was, modern man had origins in east Africa, then kinda shifted to Southern Africa, now it's Morocco, anyone who invested strong emotions in an East Africa primacy might be alarmed..but hey it's still Africa and not so unnerving in general, but what if those same finds were found in the north Med, could our emotions handle it??
Well we could take solace that at least they were still black.
Like you I'm comfortable in my own skin and don't need any intellectual safe place to crawl under.
To me truth is nothing but bias. Prime example: religious "truth", varies considerably. Other examples: timespace, global warming, extraterrestrial visitors.
I gitcha tho. I xlate you to 'Fact, it is what it is.'
... modern man had origins in • east Africa, then kinda shifted to • Southern Africa, now it's • Morocco
Yepper. Took all 3 + more, in combinations, to make our earliest global variability. Morocco is where our faces first developed. But even before then our, sapiens, oldest DNA is in Cameroon. Like you say, still in Africa.
... but what if those same finds were found in the north Med, could our emotions handle it??
Spock here. Facts. It is what it is, Captain. Wherever found, Americas Australia the Arctic, XD!
I'll root about for facts. Demagogues'll make truths out of them. Each to their own emotional needs. Pending their particular centrism.
