Afrikan Life into the coming millennia is imperiled by White and Asian power. True power must nest in the ownership of the real estate wherever Afrikan people dwell. Economic destiny determines biological destiny. Blueprint for Black Power details a determines biological destiny. Blueprint for Black Power details a master plan for the power revolution necessary for Black survival in the 21st century. Whites treatment of Afrikan Americans despite a myriad of theories explaining White behavior, ultimately rests on the fact that they can. They possess the power to do so. Such a power differential must be neutralized if Black are to prosper in the 21st century.
Afrikan Americans earn a take-home salary of near $500 billion yearly, not to mention the trillions they generate. Yet they retain only 5% of this income. Viewed as a nation, their nation, their economy potential to amass effectual social, political and economic power and thus control their destiny and secure their liberation. Professor Wilson argues that were the Afrikan American community to see itself as indeed a de facto nation, then its scourges of poverty, dis-employment, crime, mis-education, mis-leadership, wanton consumerism, alienated/deficit spending, mis-leadership and powerlessness would be drastically reduced, if not eliminated.
Blueprint posits that an Afrikan American/Caribbean/Pan-Afrikan block would be most potent for the generation and delivery of Black Power in the United States and the world to counter Whites and Asian power networks. Wilson frames this imperative by deconstructing the US elite power structure of government, political parties, think tanks, corporations, foundations, media, lobbyists, interest groups, banking and foreign investment particulars. Potentially strong Black institutions as the church, media and think tanks; industry; collectives such as investment clubs and credit unions; rotating credit associations such as Afrikan-originated esusu, tontine and partner, are analyzed. Pan-Afrikanism, Black Nationalism, ethnocentrism and reparations are assessed, often misused and underused financial institutions as securities, mutual funds, stocks, underwriting, and incubators advocated, thus elucidating oft-negated opportunities for economic empowerment. Blueprint delegitimates White power and roundly critiques the Black sycophantic bourgeois religious and political leadership establishments for their history moralizing of Black socioeconomic conditions and programmatic ineptitude. Wilson warns the consequences of Black obsolescence - biological annihilation!
Aptly titled, Blueprint for Black Power stops not at critique but prescribes radical, practical theories, frameworks and approaches for true power. It gives a biting look into Black potentiality. This 900-page treatise is a journey into the protracted.
