What are your thoughts on Kwanzaa? Do you celebrate it? Can the Pan African Revolutionary Movement incorporate it, and other Afrocentric holidays?

I’m not down with the concept of an Afrocentric Holiday, not any more.

What are your views on Fidel Castro?

I think he’s one of the greatest Statesmen of the modern era.  That rare combination of Warrior and Bureaucrat. I wish he would have followed Che’s insights on Revolution however.  Che warned that if they didn’t no immediatly build on and expand the Cuban Revolution to all of the Carri bean, Latin America, and African…
