  • adwa says:

    omg, that woman in the pink from jamaica……….is she for real?!

    insightful documentary but what a sad commentary about the state of black people. as the saying goes “united we stand, divided we fall.” practically anywhere you go in this world, black people are always considered second-class citizens of the nation in which they reside. but marcus garvey did talk seh if black people were to unite worldwide and do away with the tribalism…….within 24 hours……….we would be able to improve our economic and social plight. but judging from this documentary, black people have a loooooooooooooooong way to go. :( :( :(

  • PhantomPhoenix says:

    Blacks whose history goes back more than one generation in the “new world” aren’t from Africa and are decendants of Africans. They are then identified according to the flag/region that they are born under…ie, Jamaica (Jamaicans) Plain and simple.

    Marcus Garvey was selling illusions. Africans have NEVER gotten along like ‘birds of a feather”, clearly highlighted in the fact that it was popular for a segment of that continent to sell humans…ie US the decendants of African human cargo. This ‘back to Africa’ nonsense creates false hope among blacks and one of the reason we cannot accept aligence, self pride and unity within we respective countries of birth because we don’t accept the fact that we belong there and NO other place. Hence, we fail to fully participate in the society.

    Jamaica, me bawn and a de me ago dead. Me. like me dead ancestors will rot and add to the soil of the land we call home.

Me think fi me self…therefore I am free! DWBCLn

  • Wow, this was deep.

  • Garvey truths says:

    @PhantomPhoneix comment on Garvey is misleading. Garvey never saw that the entire Africa was to be united as one. Africa is HUGE and places are cut off from each other by desert, mountain, jungle, river etc ! He focused on working with one country, Liberia, because he knew that other African countries were not about to deal with him. He had grandiose wishes that were never realized not cause he didnt try but because he thought he was more powerful/influential than he was.

    “Back to Africa” didnt mean abandon the Americas!!! Big misconception that you yuhself seem to hold to. Garvey wanted the movement of profitable and structure-buiding resources between the two regions i.e SKILLED people and goods/products. NOT a mass haul up of everyone to resettle!!

    The vibe I get off of Garvey is that he was seriously like one a dem country boys who come a town and feel them know the runnings and feel dem deh pon top a tings when really they are not. Now as i think to type it im thinking of Jimmy Cliff as “Ivan” in Harder they come as the kind of attitude, come wid a plan to tek over and never realize that it was much harder than he thought.

    @Tawkchuet Garvey got hero status because regardless that his goals werent realized UNIA was and is the largest black organization to date. Also when Garvey ran for Prime Minister in Jamaica (and failed miserably) he put forth a Manifesto that was seen as too radical at the time. Before Long EVERY SINGLE POINT IN GARVEYS MANIFESTO became a part of the Jamaican law books, from the 8 hour work day to how the government should be set up to rep the people. He was a visionary.

    Selassie couldnt come to Jamaica fi see “onu” because he didnt even know that in this little place THOUSANDS of people worshipped him and were waiting for him. WHen him step off the plane and see wha gwaan him FRAID! lol…. cant argue about how he treated his own people during rough times though.

    I can understand Rasts from other points in the diaspora but i always find Ethiopian rooted rastas interesting. Their families musta pass on what it was like to live under Selassie lol

  • Tawkchuet says:

    Thank u Garvey truth

  • As the saying goes, ignorance is a bliss…

  • PhantomPhoenix says:

    ‘Garvey Truth” how me misleading? All you did was present information to Cheut that’s of common knowledge to those who go searching for it. The same sources of information that i’ve used to form MY opinion. Garvey is a token hero who was born with the ‘gift of gab’. It’s up to the readers to go and read up and form their own opinions. Me already form mines and holding strong to it.

    Dislikers good mawning to onu, same thing yestiday, same thing tiday…Inclusion not seperation.

  • Garvey Truth, relative to Tafari Makonnen’s visit to Jamaica, if you don’t know what you are talking about, shut up–the same goes for your revised reference to M Garvey’s Alkebulan [Africa] vision…

  • PhantomPhoenix says:

    @G. Truth…. Where did I write about Garvey and ” the entire Africa was to be united as one” ? I did not. ( post @ 4:11 certainly doesn’t state that) I am well aware of the geography of the continent.

    Every PanAfricanist (wealth opportunist) had their eyes on Liberia. Garvey mainly.

    I referenced his writings about not wanting all blacks from this hemisphere on his venture (post @ 10:29)

    Garvey’s empiral dress and that damn plume hat reminds me of a later nut of granduer…

    GT…away from you a accuse me of ‘misleading’ I can deal because me see you refer to Garvey one good and afta dat yu descended….lololollllll

    dislikers here is some more breakfas..illaloo
