THE MAIN CHARACTERISTICS OR FEATURES of AfrikaCentricity can be summarized as follows:

To be Afrikacentric Continental Afrikan means to live a totally harmonious and balanced life that is Continental Afrika-created, Continental Afrika-Centered, Continental Afrika-directed and oriented.

It means , living constantly in tune to the positive elements of our Continental Afrikaness or Identity or Culture .

Besides, the Afrikacentric Afrikan knows and is aware of his/her right to be Awakened Continental Afrikan which to her/him is an indisputable fact, a settled issue, or a non-negotiable Principle.

Just as no conscious French, British, Chinese or Japanese will trade or exchange their own created identities of who they are with foreign or alien identities, in the sane way, an Afrikacentric Afrikan knows once and for all his/her right, duty and responsibility to be conscious and mentally-liberated Continental Afrikan and for which she/he will die to protect and defend if need be.

This MEANS , not everybody who says he/she is Continental Afrikan is a true Continental Afrikan.

All because, we have what we call Euro-centric Afrikans who are only Afrikan outside but thoroughly “White” or “Western” inside.

To them, everything “white” is good for Afrika to swallow to death but everything Afrikan is bad for Afrika to know, master and use for her benefit . . They know everything about the Western world but little or nothing about their own Continental AfrikaWorld which they have been programmed to dismiss as “backward”, archaic, stone age or inferior.

Besides, we also have Arab—Centric Afrikans who are only Afrikan outside and thoroughly Arab inside. Most of the Arab-Centric Afrikans are Arabanized or turned into Photocopy of the Arab through the Arab religion they call Islam. To them, God is only God unless and until she is called not in their own Continental AfrikaLanguage but in Arab language as Allah.

Side by side the Arab-Centric Afrikans, we have what we call Jewish-centric Afrikans who are also Afrikan only outside but thoroughly Jewish inside.

To them, the Jewish city Jerusalem is their heaven to go to when they die or their holy land to visit and pray for daily.

While Egypt, their own holy and sacred Continental Afrikan land is considered the hell from which their God of Israel save the Jews to Canaan the Promised Land.

We also have Afrikans who are Afrikan outside but inside they have slave, colonial, neo-colonial identities, mentalities, and perspectives that make them survive as photocopies of alien Personalities rather than live as conscious Continental Afrikans.

They see the world with Foreign rather than Continental AfrikaEyes.

They think Foreign rather than Continental Afrikan.

They dress Foreign rather than Continental Afrikan.

They speak Foreign rather Continental Afrikan. They eat Foreign rather than Continental Afrikan.

They take great pride in their Foreign personalities, Foreign tastes, Foreign values, Foreign state prisons, Alien politics, Alien democracies, Alien governments, Alien allies, Alien boundaries, Alien state plantation systems, Alien institutions, Alien politics and outmoded Alien models, etc. that exist to keep them ignorant of their own AfrikaCentricity, to keep them perpetually divided, fighting and killing each other, dependent, powerless, suffering and needy in the midst of so much abundance they are unaware of.

BENEFITS of knowing and living as conscious Continental Afrikans always in tune to the Power of our AfrikaCentricity include:

Self-knowledge, Self-love, Self-Acceptance, Self-Pride, Self-Respect, Self-Esteem, High Self-Image, Self-Mastery, Self-Control and Self-Fulfillment and which in turn lead to trust in oneself and others, love for oneself and others, respect for oneself and others, faith in oneself and others, confidence and belief in oneself and others.

Besides, living Afrikacentric Continental Afrikans in Thoughts, Words and Deeds shall also confer on us , the Inner limitless Power we need to be, do and achieve all our hearts' desires on earth.

It is also the political, economic and social Afrikacentric Continental Afrikan Means we need and want to make all the money we need, to build all the best homes, make all the best cars, manufacture all the best telephones, fax machines, televisions, radios, and many other beautiful modern amenities for our comfort as Afrikacentric Continental Afrikans with a Sacred Continental Afrikan Political, Economic and Social Miracle Mission to accomplish for the benefits of all.

AfrikaCentricity is therefore Life in Total Peace, Harmony, Dignity, Freedom, Joy and Peace for all the One Billion Continental/Diaspora Afrikans as conscious and mentally liberated Continental Afrikans for Life in Dignity, Peace and Happiness for All

HAVOC of surviving out of tune to our AfrikaCentricity includes:

1) Inability to know there is power in knowing we are all Continental Afrikans,

2) the shame of treating each other as aliens or strangers rather than embracing and supporting each other as Members, Citizens and Nationals of One and Indivisible Continental Afrikan Homeland and Family,

3) the Genocide of trying to survive desperately as perpetually FRAGMENTED , disunited, disjointed, uprooted, dependent, impoverished, powerless, confused, hopeless, helpless, and needy as fatherless and motherless people

4) Ignorance of and living out of tune to our AfrikaCentricity which deprives today's Continental/Diaspora Afrikans of their right to be full-fledged, independent, sovereign, self-reliant and conscious Continental Afrikans who think, see, accept, believe and define themselves in positive terms like First world Afrikan People, Rich and not poor people, Developed and not under-developed, Independent and not dependent People free once and for all from the hell of Foreign-created , dominated and controlled status quo, world orders , systems and institutions which exist to keep us dependent on the crumbs of others Instead of recovering our Continental Afrikan Loaf for our Enjoyment .

Just as others elsewhere continuously develop, modernize, industrialize themselves or solve their daily problems their own ways as Japanese, Chinese, Koreans, French, British, Germans, or Italians etc, in the same way, all Continental Afrikans must Develop, Modernize, Industrialize or solve their daily problem not Foreign ways but AFRIKACENTRICALLY or Continentally or in Ancient Continental AfrikaWay as totally Independent, Sovereign, Self-Reliant, and Self-Supporting Continental Afrikans in Thoughts, Words and Deeds in Total Freedom, Justice, Love, Peace and Harmony for all for life.
