This one comes to us from Dr. Amos N. Wilson's lecture Afrikan-Centered Consciousness Versus The New World Order: Garveyism in the Age of Globalism
The Illusion of Progress We have a leadership that has sought to get us to accept the status quo: the control of the world by the European. You errantly hear some of us conceding that it's the white man's world so we may as well learn how to live in it or just get along. The assimilationist often accepts, consciously or unconsciously, the idea that the white man will continue to rule the world. He bases his ideology and political action on the concept that somehow our destiny is not to overthrow the white man, that our destiny is not to remove this pathological person; that our destiny is not to suppress and bring these sick people under control but to heal them in some sort of way, to convert them, to even become part of them. Our destiny becomes not one that sees the very system and very ideology upon which these oppressors move as one of sickness and insanity and therefore in need of replacement by an Afrikan-centered and healthy ideology that comes our of our own self-knowing. This leadership wants us to accept this sickness as normality and to follow these pathological beings into self-destruction.
