WHAT IS OUR AFRIKACENTRICITY ? or DISCOVER THE POWER AND BENEFITS OF OUR GLORIOUS AFRIKACENTRICITY 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] ;

Who is a Continental Afrikan? How do we distinguish between an Afrikacentered, Based, Oriented Continental/Diaspora Afrikan spelt with a “k” and Foreign-created, based, controlled and oriented Continental/Diaspora African spelt with a “c”? Why must we be AFRIKACENTRIC AND NO MORE FOREIGN-CENTRIC Continental Afrikans again? Why is it a Science and an Art to rediscover, relearn and practice, master and profit from the forgotten Ancient Continental AfrikaTechnology, Science, Truth, Knowledge and Wisdom of our Continental AFRIKANESS or IDENTITY ?

In other words, who are we? Where do we come from? What are our strengths to rely on and weaknesses to avoid as a people? Why and how did we do all the political, economic and social miracles in the Past? Why we are no more flying the way we used to and what must we do to become once again the center, the master and actor of our world and life?

The relevance of the above critical and strategic Afrikacentric QUESTIONS lies in the fact that while the French, the British, the Japanese, the Chinese, the Germans, the Italians or the Europeans or White Americans and many other conscious Human Groups in our world today, know once and for all who they are and are vigorously marching to the twenty—first century united as one People with one Agenda to promote and defend throughout the world, the bulk of our one billion Continental//Diaspora Afrika today are still suffering from the world's worse man-made Identity Crisis that has ever befallen any part of Humanity that makes them see, think and accept themselves or each other as aliens and Strangers rather than as conscious Continental Afrikans, Citizens and Nationals of one and indivisible Continental Afrika, their Ancestral Mother and Fatherland they are kept ignorant of.

This means, AfrikaCentricity does not mean or should be confused with attempts or efforts on the part of some Afrikans in Continental Afrika to be “Afrikans” in slave, colonial and neo-colonial identities and status quo that exist to keep them apart and separated from each other and ignorant of their Afrikaness or Continental AfrikaIdentity.

In the same way, AfrikaCentricity does not mean trying to become Continental Afrikans with slave identities and in predominantly “White” or “Arab” controlled worlds as some of our Diaspora Afrikan brothers and sisters believe.

All because, our Afrikaness, like a seed, can only be planted not on alien lands but in our own Continental Afrikaland to make it ours for our benefits. Trying to be Continental Afrikan in “White' created and controlled world is like trying to be fish not in water but on a table.

Likewise, AfrikaCentricity should not be qualified or viewed in negative terms like “ it does not matter whether we are Afrikans or not “ or “being Afrikan” cannot feed us” or “pay our rent” or “save us~~ or it is a “waste of time” or “it does not matter whether we are Continental Afrikans or not “or” what Afrika needs is not to know who she is but money and not Culture is the thing we should fight for etc.

The more we reason in the above negative terms, the more we forget to know and benefit from the power of our AfrikaCentricity and without which all else is zero.

So, by AfrikaCentricity, we mean the right, duty and responsibility of all conscious and mentally liberated Continental/Diaspora Afrikans to rediscover, know, affirm, practice and reap daily the power of becoming awakened Continental Afrikans again in Thoughts, Words and Deeds.

AfrikaCentricity is therefore our Recovered Ancient Afrikan Science and Art of knowing and living as free, independent and sovereign Continental Afrikans, Citizens and Nationals of our Continental Afrikan Homeland. AfrikaCentricity is also the daily promotion and protection of all the positive elements of our Continental Afrikaness or AfrikaCentricity.

It is living as Continental Afrikan in a Continental Afrika-created, Continental Afrika-oriented and directed environment, systems, institutions, policies, values and leadership specifically created, sustained and protected by Continental Afrikans to serve and promote Continental Afrikan needs in Continental Afrika and the world.

The ORIGIN of AfrikaCentricity dates back to the Origin of the world in Afrika. This makes AfrikaCentricity the oldest desire of every being on earth to know and be herself/himself and prosper as such. For more than Three Million Years in Ancient Term and Ten Thousand Years in Modern Term, children of Mother Continental Afrika have always known their true identity as Afrikans that enabled them to collectively build the world's first civilization, nation-states, empires, kingdoms and pyramids as One Continental AfrikaPeople with one and indivisible Continental Afrikaland as their Ancestral Father and Motherland to own and develop for their benefits.

Hence, the NATURE of AfrikaCentricity can be said to be Ancient in Origin, Continental Afrikan in Scope, traditional Continental Afrikan in Dimension, and unique, original and authentic in Perspective.

This makes the right of all children of Mother Continental Afrika to know, become and live once again as conscious Continental Afrikans, the world's first Human Right and from which all the Human rights of today are derived.
