Dhoruba Bin Wahad on Black Leadership and Barak Obama

Dhoruba Bin Wahad is currently on the road lecturing and promoting the re-release of the critically acclaimed award winning film “Passin’ It On”. Passin’ It On is a film highlighting Dhoruba and his case. The following is a question from a recent interview about Barak Obama being elected U.S. president.

Kalonji: What is the State of Black Leadership in America?

Dhoruba: Poor, afraid, reactionary, opportunistic, self-serving, and above all invested in the profession of reformism.

Kalonji: Is Barak Obama a "Savior" for Black People?

Dhoruba: No! Obama’s rise to political prominence marks the end of African history in America and the beginning of its complete assimilation into the white supremacist ethos. Which is why integrationists of the sixties view his run for the "white house" as the culmination of their struggle for "equality".
