Our recovered AFRIKACENTRIC Continental AfrikaDemocracy we now call AFRIKADEMOCRACY OR AFRIKAPEOPLECRACY is the AFRIKACENTRIC Democracy of all Continental Afrikans by all Continental Afrikans and for all Continental Afrikans done in their own common one Continental Afrikan language for the use, protection, control and benefits of all Continental Afrikans.

Continental Afrikan Democracy for all Continental Afrikans is therefore not a colonial/neo-colonial-privileged few-minority-created and minority-controlled, minority-directed and monopolized "democracy" of the few, by the few and for the benefits of a privileged few backed by a gun or money power.

AFRIKACENTRIC Afrikan Democracy for all Continental Afrikans is thus all Continental Afrikan People-Made-and-centered political, economic and social means, tools, instruments or power in the hands of all Continental Afrikan people to satisfy their collective and individual needs and wants in life that will make them masters rather than victims of life.

In this sense, AFRIKACENTRIC Afrikan Democracy is not a photocopy or counterfeit of Western/Foreign democracies of the few by the few and for the few backed by gun or money power. Afrikan Democracy for all Continental Afrikans is not done or focused in foreign languages and in foreign systems, institutions, terms, labels and titles that 70 percent of our people cannot relate to, use, or control for their benefits.

Afrikan Democracy for all Continental Afrikans is also not a sacred domain, business, affair or monopoly of a tiny minority of pro-Western elite to promote and satisfy their

Western/neo-colonial interests, needs and wants and those of their foreign creators and protectors throughout neo-colonial Continental Afrika.

In other words, contrary to what colonial/neo-colonial powers and their past and present agents in today's Continental Afrikan world will like us to believe, Afrikan Democracy for all Continental Afrikans is not "tribalistic," "archaic," 'local," "traditional," "obsolete," "anti-progress," "anti-development," anti-modernization" or "anti-civilization."

It is not taking our beloved continent to the cave and Stone Age world. Afrikan Democracy for all Continental Afrikans simply means the recognition of the right of all Continental Afrikan people in Continental Afrika to devise, practice, control, and benefit from their own Continental Afrikan Democracy/Government in their own Continental Afrikan languages, systems, institutions, terms, labels, and titles they know, understand and can relate to, use and control for their benefits.

Afrikan Democracy for all Continental Afrikans is simply giving all the people of Continental Afrika better AFRIKACENTRIC Continental Afrikan political, economic and social tools, weapons, instruments or power to govern, develop and modernize themselves the Continental Afrikan way rather than foreign ways.

Afrikan Democracy for all Continental Afrikans is simply saying yes to our Continental Afrikan right to be Continental Afrikans in thoughts, words and deeds in our Afrikan-created and controlled Environment led by AFRIKACENTRIC elite who are products of their people rather than agents of colonial/neo-colonial powers in Continental Afrika.

Afrikan Democracy for all Continental Afrikans is simply saying no to any attempts by external powers and their agents in any part of Continental Afrika to de-Afrikanize, Westernize, dominate, control and use us for their own ends.

Consequently, Afrikan Democracy is therefore NOT new to Continental Afrikans. It is as ancient and old as our continent which is scientifically accepted as the Cradle of Humanity and Mother of today's world civilization.

Hence, Afrikan Democracy is the first Democracy in the world and Mother of western democracies which are nothing but versions or corruptions of the true AFRIKACENTRIC Afrikan Democracy.

That is why Afrikan Democracy has kept Continental Afrikans alive, together and organized for over 10,000 years at the time when Western people and their concepts of democracy did not exist. In spite of colonial/neo-colonial politics and mechanisms of robbing today's Afrikans of the knowledge and power of their Afrikan Democracy, it continues to exist in the hearts, minds and souls of 70 percent of our people.

Hence, it will survive the present neo-colonial-based democracies/ governments/leaders in the same way it survived 100 years of colonial-based democracies, governments, and leaders in our Continental Afrikan World.

Instead of trotting Paris, London, Washington, Rome, Berlin and so on, for photocopies or crumbs of alien/ foreign democracies, governments and leadership styles that are doomed to fail in Continental Afrika, our today's pro-West elite "experts" should do well to stay at home to rediscover, re-learn, know and understand the bask elementary Afrikan-centric truth that only AFRIKACENTRIC Democracy for all Continental Afrikans can save and develop all Continental Afrikans in the same way as French democracy does for the French, British democracy for the British or White American democracy for White Americans, etc.

Besides, just as it is impossible for any right thinking person to try to walk with someone else's feet, in the same way, it is suicidal or tragic for today's apostles of alien democracies to try to walk with Western/foreign feet instead of their own feet If it is not "tribalistic" for the British, French, Germans, Japanese, Chinese or white Americans and so on to create, own, manage, control and benefit from their own democracies and governments in their own languages, systems, institutions, values, labels, titles or terms that all their people know, understand, use and control for their own benefits, in the same way, it is pure ignorance or stupidity for anyone to think or suggest in Continental Afrika that it is "tribalistic" or "anti-African-unity," "anti-progress" and "anti-development" and so on for Afrikans too to demand and claim their Continental Afrikan right to create, have, own, control and use their own Continental Afrikan Democracy/Government/Systems, Institutions and so on in their own Continental Afrikan language and for their own benefits.
