This book seeks to promote a realistic political dialogue between the American national minorities and the dominant Anglo-American majority. In what American presidents Clinton and Obama have repeatedly called a "one-nation one-state" political system, how will the state address the unique needs and interests of its historically oppressed national minorities, particularly African Americans? All black officials in the United States government are in the same position as the president; they are all required to represent first of all the majority's interests. For a national minority to be able to fully address its special needs (when it can find no specific representation in the majority-dominated platform of either political party or the policy agenda of government), it must seek to enjoy not only civil rights, but the full range of human rights, particularly the right to self-determination, to whatever extent may be desired or needed. Hajji Malik Al-Shabazz understood that the African Americans were still in the grip of American domestic colonialism. He feared that the majority ethny would prefer to pursue forced assimilation, possibly leading to the extinguishing of African Americans' collective identity (ethnocide), rather than to negotiate an equal-status integration of the African American national minority. As the presidency of Barack Obama is demonstrating, electing a Black president who is required to address the state's interest as a whole is not the answer for improving the well being of African Americans.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The western world continues to lose its global leadership status due to its inability to institutionalize and take seriously the ideals, etc. that it, itself, has been so instrumental in developing and protecting. The Anglo-American empire1 continues to struggle for the maintenance of what one might call domestic colonialism2 in the new world (North America) and a new American form of neo-imperialism in developing states. Even after the legitimacy and practice of western European international colonization and imperialism has dimmed, the US policies and politic can be considered to result from what advocates of the "American Century” may consider the more successful colonialist model for global political hegemony through the tactic and model of "domestic colonialism”. Not only did the US model lead to politico-economic success, but it did so despite the fact that this success depended heavily on the US attempts at enslavement of captured Africans and the near ethnocide of the indigenous populations. In modern history, however, the American model has been so successful at hiding under the banner of democracy that the world had come to view the US as the best hope for the protection of democracy, human rights, good governance, sustainable development, and war against global poverty. For any of these hopes to be realized, the situation of the oppressed must be framed within the context of the struggle of nations within states to achieve social, cultural and economic equal status (collective or individual self-determination)4 merit our serious consideration. Otherwise, such hopes can be only for the few (the ruling classes).5 The neo-colonialism and neo-imperialism of domestic colonialism becomes most visible when observing the unique weaknesses of the economic, political and social institutions historically evolved for the equal status protection of peoples such as African-Americans, First Nations, Dalits, Roma, Kashmiris, etc. in the USA, India and elsewhere. All these political institutions and the socio-political philosophies that support them seem designed to forcibly incorporate or maintain such peoples into political units that are under the jurisdiction of descendants of the original European colonists or dominant (Brahmin) ruling majority, etc., who they seem to feel would keep them at the bottom of the pecking order and without socio-cultural equal status.
