Mobilization Versus Organization in the Pan African MovementPin

Ours is not to teach the people to be conscious, but to make them conscious of their unconscious behavior. – Kwame Ture

The struggle is never an event, it is a process. This is what we must understand if we are to achieve what our Ancestors first set out to do. Protests may be a means to an end, but the activity can never replace true organization.

In this podcast, we do the knowledge on the difference between the two.

Here Is What You Will Learn

  • How the system of white supremacy organized itself to beat the Black Revolution
  • Why every organizer must be a mobilizer, but every mobilizer is not an organizer.
  • What we must do as a Pan-African movement to achieve real and lasting results in the face of white supremacy

  1. Hey I just wanted to add, a lot of mixed people, mixed with black that is, identify with black people as in we call ourselves black, white people do not treat us as white by any means and the only place we often find solidarity and a community is with our other brothers and sisters of African decent. It depends on how we grow up and the intentions of our parents, this is often why most mixed people with white mothers tend to be, for want of a better phrase, complete coons. But like Malcolm we still interact with whiteness in the same way as those fully of African decent do. A lot of people make the assumption that mixed people won’t choose their blackness over their whiteness but, our whiteness does that for us by never choosing us. Whiteness is a standard, if you don’t meet that standard society doesn’t work in your favour and even though some of us may be closer to this standard, we still never meet that standard. You have to understand racism in order to understand how mixed people process their blackness, for example mixed people who have never been exposed to positive blackness view it in the same light as white people and so normally identify as mixed and against their blackness, however this situation could be observed in a child fully of African decent who grew up in a white family. But society still, no matter how we choose to define, recognises us as black before we are recognised as mixed. Mixed is like a sub category, a division, like light-skinned and dark-skinned its another means of dividing the black community. I haven’t really hit the nail on the head here, but there’s a lot more comprehensive articles about why conscious mixed people define as black online.

    • Asante for the comment and its a subject I want to explore more in future articles. In fact, if you identify as mixed I would love to get your perspective on the topic in more detail. Shoot me a private message or we can start a forum thread to bring others into the conversation.

  2. “The market is constantly changing. If you are not paying attention or if you spend all of your time trying to adapt to the market as it is today, you are already being left behind. While you are trying to live in the present and make it work for you, others are looking at the future and creating an industry paradigm you won’t recognize and a market for which you will no longer be qualified for employment…” – Colleen Doran
