Do we need an African World Order?

New World Order...

They look pretty organized to me.  Really look at this list.  They have England,China,America,Australia and Israel all working together.  Do you notice something?  It seems Africa is not involved in this global partnership.  That means that we need our own “new world order”.  We better do something because you can see what we’re up against.  They’re all working together controlling everything from politics,entertainment,education and religion.  That’s why it’s so easy for them to brainwash the masses to hate black people worldwide.  They put out the negative images of black people through television,magazines and films.  This is how they spread anti-blackness.  And this is what people of African descent are up against.  So what do you think?  Should we link up with other racial groups?  Or should we go at it alone?Do you think we need to create some type pf organization like this? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
