Baba note: the following prefaced the article on Civilizations that follows it. I rec'd via email. It brought to my mind the disconnectedness among our people. And more and more individuals/groups are clamoring to be THE leader, the epitome of all our needs, etc. Meanwhile folk like me are howling in the forests that we must become a "monolithic" folk and that the basis is BLACK. The greetings listed appear to be transliterated Medu netcher. I'm not sure. Fortunately, there're English renderings also.

A major problem that African people in America are besieged by. Dr. Hilliard described this problem as a cultural surrender. Dr. Hilliard wrote that, "If there is a major illness among Afrikan and Afrikan-American people it is that
we unceasingly honor and utilize our culture less. All great nations and people do the opposite. Many Black people will still keep walking around with their eyes wide shut. There's absolutely no way to save people from the things
in their eyes. They must gather the courage to do it for themselves."
