That’s particularly easy; Racial, Religious, and Ethnic Minority groups have built institutional power, secured control of resources, and erected infrastructure within larger (and hostile) Systems of power, within the borders of hostile nations.  

Black people were the first (non-White) Minority group in the US to build independent systems and infrastructures in the US; but we lost them through direct and deliberate White Aggression; we like to blame Integration, but White Violence and Criminality subverted Black Power and Independence. 

Jews are now the most readily recognized Religious and Ethnic minority group within the US who are cohesive, empowered, and secured; but there are also Chinese, Mexican, Gambian, Vietnamese, Mung, Greek, Mormon enclaves; just to name a few. 

The first thing a minority or targeted groups needs is a core identity, then you need a common mission or outlook, finally you need interdependence and a capacity to both reward and punish members of the group for holding to or violation the mission or departing from the shared outlook.  

Black people have just about all of those elements, but we made the mistake of building conservative or liberal communities instead of Pan-African and Revolutionary communities.

The only way to defend any Racial/Ethnic/Religious Power Enclave is for that group to make economic and cultural ties with their land of origin and to work in concert with their “motherlands” to build the power and influence of their motherlands on the global stage.

Just look into how much the Jewish Diaspora feeds into Israel, look at the amount of remittances Asian, Latin American, and African immigrants send back to their home or native nations, even after they’ve been in the US for generations. The Vatican repped for Catholics when the US targeted them, the “Islamic Nations” are advocating for US (non-Black) Muslims as they are targeted, etc.  You’ll notice that any group that allows their international or homeland ties to be broken will be greatly weakened.  Even the WASP, even the Pilgrims still represent for their homeland, look how the White Majority has remained deeply invested in Europe, Europe’s economy and political affairs.  

The State needs to know that when they fuck with your group that it will not be an internal incident, that it will have global ramifications.  

Black people will never secure stable and sustainable power or viable/resilient communities until we adapt and fully internalize Pan-Africanism.  

We keep trying to progress as Americans, or worse, as African-Americans; but we should be identifying and building as Africans, as Diasporic Africans, or Africans of the Diaspora; and we should be organizing and sharing resources directly with the rest of the African Diaspora and the African Continent.  

Every Black community should have a Sister City, or a Cooperating Community in Brazil, Haiti, Jamaica, Nigeria, the Congo, etc. We should be erecting direct ties with Africans across the globe.  When we vote in US elections the US policies in African should be one of our main concerns, and so on. 

That’s it in a nutshell, but our mission should not be to become more affluent with the unity and the rewards of being better resourced and organized; our mission should be the Systematic Dismantling of the Systems and Institutions of Global White Domination and Finance Capitalism. Or else we’ll end up like the Chinese, Japanese, Jews, or Nigerians; progressing and achieving on a dying planet.
