Chairman Omali notes that African Internationalism recognizes that the process of slavery and brigandage that consolidated the political economy, national identity and general well-being of what came to be known as Europe is the same process that results in the wretched, divided, impoverished and exploited lot of Africans and much of the world. He further contends that the leading force of struggle is the African and oppressed working class throughout the world against “parasitic capitalism,” built on enslavement, genocide and colonialism.

“The Black race will be exterminated if it does not build a black superpower in Africa by the end of this century.” Chinweizu
The central objective in decolonizing the African mind is to overthrow the authority which alien traditions exercise over the African. This demands the dismantling of white supremacist beliefs, and the structures which uphold them, in every area of African life. It must be stressed, however, that decolonization does not mean ignorance of foreign traditions; it simply means denial of their authority and withdrawal of allegiance from them. –Chinweizu–
