Being a neo-Pan Africanist in this citywide election
During a recent trip to Ethiopia and Tanzania, I learned of white owned NGOs and white owned non-profits doing incredible work in Africa (http://www.bmorenews.com/news/013106_black_news_bmorenews_africa_report.htm).
Since then, I have had to take another look at my own Pan-Africanism. Can black people do it alone? Or, is the help of non-blacks necessary and prudent when it comes to solving the challenges of the black Diaspora across the globe.
In this citywide election in Baltimore, a Greek guy – Mike Sarbanes – is running for Council President and is getting a heap of support.
So, here’s the question: Is the black support of Mike Sarbanes viewed as a slap in the face of either Rawlings Blake or Harris, both of whom want the seat – both of whom are black.
We’d love to hear your comments.
