The System VS Black Liberation

There is a raging debate taking place right now within the movement for Black liberation. It is a debate over how best for us to build Black power. Do we do this by working within the system, or do we destroy the system, and build upon its debris, a new world of Black power and progress.

Working within the system, of course, has severe drawbacks because the energy put into securing a footing for Black people really, at the end of the day, gives more power, both economically and politically, to the White status quo.

However, destroying the system, if it were to happen instantaneously, could be devasting for thousands of Black families and individuals all over the country AND the African diaspora.

So, what is to be said? Perhaps, as we continue to become increasingly politicized, we could apply some gradualism to the breaking up of the system, but -- in the meantime -- it seems that many will continue to work within the system.

I truly need to do some more thinking on this.
