Jah Seeker, in response to your words:
"So it is high time that African people and people of African descent stop waiting for outside forces or help and rise up and demand justice once and for all. Peacefully if possible, violent if necessary"
Very true indeed. However, just to give you a different historical angle to consider...as it is often assumed that we have never tried, much less succeeded in building our own economically independent black communities.
Have you ever heard of the Black Holocaust in America, The Tulsa Race Riot of 1921? If not, check out what white folks did to InI community. And, by the way, this is not an isolated incident.
We have been told "well, go back to Africa" (even though we are also indeginous to these lands) yet our efforts have been historically sabotaged, because truth be told, without us, the western world wouldn't be as economically powerful, and would be culturally dead. And when we've decided to go on and build our own here, they have been systematically destroyed.
Perhaps this will she'd a bit more light on InI experience and reality.
