When we come to the Diaspora Afrika in USA, Europe and West Indies, the crisis of loss of Continental AfrikaPerspective is a grave one.

Here, 400 years of "white" programming of the Diaspora Afrikans have turned about 98 percent of them into the only Afrikan People on earth without their own AfrikaPerspective which are not even aware of and have been uprooted from for over four hundred years

Hence, to the 99% of them, they have nothing to do with Continental AfrikaPerspective because most of them do not see themselves as Afrikans in White America, Europe or the Islands but as "Negroes," "colored," "Black," "Afro-Americans," "African-Americans, Black French, Black British or West Indians."

So to them, to talk of them having or not having AfrikaPerspective instead of their Western, Slave, Colonial and Neo-colonial perspectives for which they are so proud , is to say the least ridiculous.

Besides, their programming has been so thorough and complete that they are not even aware that the perspectives they have and which they call their own are not even their own but "white" or Western or Jewish or Arab or simply Foreign .

As far as they are concerned, they do not have or need Continental Afrikan perspective. They do not have and need "white" perspective.

They have "Black" "Afro-American or African American, Black French, Black British or West Indian" perspectives which they see as their own.

And beyond all their excuses and rationalizations, lies the tragic fact that most Diaspora Afrikans in USA, Europe and West Indies have totally lost or forgotten their Continental AfrikaPerspective which 99% of them consider or dismiss as irrelevant or non-existing or archaic or obsolete or backward for them to worry about let alone reclaim and use for their benefit .

Evidence in support of this loss, lies in the fact that they consciously or unconsciously look at the world and life with the "white" Man eyes.

For example the fact that they see themselves as what the "white man" wants them to see themselves, that is, by using slave and colonial labels and identities that hide their Continental Afrikan Origin, Root, Identity and Oneness as Afrikans in USA instead of African Americans or Black etc

Like their "white" masters, they prefer to identify themselves with anything except Continental Afrika .

And as long as they do that, the more "comfortable" and "civilized" they think they will become.

Like their brothers and sisters on the continent, their loss of Continental AfrikaPerspective makes them also to think and believe that they cannot create and govern themselves in their own created Afrikan language and in their own created and governed Afrikan Style state and environment in USA, Europe and West Indies.

That, their salvation depends on their total integration or dissolution into the "white" systems, institutions, policies and values.

In other words, commit collective suicide as Afrikans in USA, Europe, South America and West Indies by allowing themselves to be totally assimilated by the "white" perspective and ways of doing things.

And the more absorbed they are into the "white" world believed to be the best, the more they think they have made it in their alien world.

Furthermore, their loss of AfrikaPerspective results into the excessive zeal in transforming and keeping themselves down as slaves and dependents of the "white" world and life without even knowing it.

They are eager to do anything to please their "white" masters and systems and become too satisfied, too grateful and too blessed with the crumbs from the masters' table.

And in this way, they forget that they too can make and have the loaf on the masters' table.

Because of their "white" perspective of the world and life, they think and believe they cannot do without the "white man" world and the crumbs awards and rewards offered them occasionally when they are in line.

Their "white" perspective can only make them think and believe that claiming their Afrikaness even in the "white" world will be an act of death.

Because to them, preferring their Afrikan Root to their Foreign, Western, Arab or Jewish roots will be like preferring hell to heaven.

Since most of them still see , believe and think of Afrika as "backward" and their USA, France, Britain as "Civilized," "developed" and "modern."

That is why most of them will do anything to show their unquestionable total loyalty, faith, trust, belief, confidence and love for their Foreign, Western or Material and Christian and Islam/Arab worlds , systems, institutions, policies and values, even if they moan under their daily hurts of injustice, racism, slavery etc.

And at the same token, they will do anything to show to their Foreign creators and masters their total rejection, hatred, contempt, ignorance or forgetfulness of their Afrikan Past, History, Root, Identity etc. as their Proof that they have made it in their Foreign/Western/Arab/Jewish worlds .
