WHAT ARE OUR AUTHENTIC CONTAFRIKAVAULUES ? or DISCOVER THE POWER AND BENEFITS OF OUR GLORIOUS CONTINENTAL AFRIKAVALUES FOR ALL CONT/DIASPORA AFRIKANS, By COPYRIGHT (2011) Prof Afrikadzata Deku, Docteur d'Etat, PhD; *Doctorat d'Etat (Ph.D.) * D.E.S.S. (M. Phil) * Diplome De L' I.I.A.P.(Post-Grad. Dipl.) * M.Sc. * BA. Double Majors * Emails: [email protected] ;

To today's Euro-centric , Arab-centric, Jewish-centric or Foreign-centric or Pro-Foreign and Anti-Afrikan Continental/Diaspora Afrikans, there is nothing like Continental AfrikaValues for all Continental/Diaspora Afrikans to rediscover, reclaim, develop, enrich, protect, defend, promote, live in tune to and benefit from .

Because to them, as PRODUCTS of Foreign Systems of education and Culture rather than as PRODUCTS of their own Continental AfrikaEducation System and Culture, values are values and universal and as such cannot be unique or specific to Continental Afrikans.

And yet, they talk of French, Japanese, British, Chinese, etc values that differentiate one Group from the other.

The fact that I see the Sun on Monday when others elsewhere see the same Sun on Tuesday or Sunday authorizes me to call the Sun "my" Sun even if it is for all Humanity and does not mean, I am depriving others of “their” Sun .

So, in the same way, even though values are values to all Human Groups on earth, the way they are defined and used or not used by each Group makes it French, British, Chinese, Japanese or Continental Afrikan as the case might be.

To deny the existence of Continental AfrikaValues is to deny the existence of Continental Afrikans, as People with the Intelligence and the Right to develop their own Afrikacentric Values based on their own Continental AfrikaCulture, Traditions and Customs.

That means, Continental AfrikaValues are not and cannot be confused with all kinds of Foreign values that currently exist to rob Continental/Diaspora Afrikans of the Knowledge, Power and Benefits of their own Afrikacentric Continental AfrikaValues or to keep them distorted, discredited and under-rated as a calculated attempt to make today's Continental/Diaspora Afrikans to accept Foreign values as better than their own which they readily ridicule, reject, condemn, forget, or discard as less important to accept and practise.

In the same way, Our Authentic, Positive, Total and Permanent and Non-Negotiable Continental AfrikaValues cannot and should not be described in negative terms such as "archaic" "obsolete" "inferior" or "black" because, Continental African Values are the world first Values practised by Ancient Continental Afrikans as Cradle of Humanity.

This means, Continental AfrikaValues are important to all Continental/Diaspora Afrikans as French values are to the French, Japanese values to the Japanese, Chinese values to Chinese and others.

In this sense, Continental AfrikaValues are Values in themselves with the right to exist, and to be recognized, accepted, used and promoted as such. Any attempt therefore to subordinate our Continental AfrikaCulture and Values to Foreign values or turn them into photocopies of Arab, French, British, Portuguese or Jewish values cannot work.

Consequently, by Continental AfrikaValues, we means all the Positive and well Cherished Continental Afrikapolitical, economic and social Values, Principles, Standards and Qualities that bind together and are dear to and practised by all Conscious Continental/Diaspora Afrikans/Islanders . .

They are the Sum Total of all that is best, valuable and priceless in our Continental AfrikaCulture or Way of life and being.

Continental AfrikaValues are therefore the MADE-IN- AFRIKA PRODUCT of our Authentic and Natural Continental AfrikaCulture and not Foreign cultures.

They are the Positive Values which are common to all Conscious Continental/Diaspora Afrikans and which serve as their Afrikacentric Continental Afrikapolitical, economic and social Foundation, Point of Reference and Yard-stick for knowing what is Continental Afrikan and what is not, what strengthens us and empowers us and uplifts us as Continental Afrikans for us to uphold, cherish, defend, promote , and build our lives on and what weakens us and keeps us ignorant of who we are , fragmented, dependent and down crawling like chicken of fear and resignation for us to AVOID and be FREE from at all cost and not matter what .

Hence, the Origin of our Continental AfrikaValues dates back to the Origin of the world in Afrika that makes Continental AfrikaValues the oldest Human values in the world.

This means, for example, without Continental AfrikaValues to teach Humanity the world's first concept, perspective and practice of values, there will be today, no British, no French, no White American, no Arab, no Jew, or no Portuguese etc values for our today's Culturally ignorant and uprooted and asleep Continental/Diaspora Afrikans to be conditioned to prefer over their own Afrikacentric Continental AfrikaValues which gave birth to all the Foreign Values that are ruling and destroying our Continental Afrikan Identity, Past, Culture and Values which to most of us do not exist or not important for us to worry about .

The Nature of our Continental AfrikaValues can therefore be summarized as Ancient in Origin, Continental Afrikan in Scope, Afrikacentric in Content, Traditional Afrika in dimension, unique, original and authentic in Perspective.

This means, just as no serious French, Japanese, British or Chinese etc will exchange or trade their own values with any Foreign values, in the same way, the time has come for all our serious and conscious Continental/Diaspora Afrikans to take seriously the study, knowledge, development, protection, defense and promotion of our own Continental AfrikaCulture and Values for the Good of all.
