    SYNOPSIS

    The time has come for a realistic political dialogue between the American
    national minorities and the dominant Anglo-American ethnic group.

    The problem that arises in what American presidents Clinton and Obama have
    repeatedly called a “one-nation one-state” political system is: how will the state
    assure and protect the unique needs and interests of its historically oppressed
    national minorities? Most black officials in the United States government are in
    the same position as the president; they were not elected to speak or work for
    African Americans' interests, but must represent the interests of their
    constituencies as a whole -- the majority’s interests. When the majority-
    dominated platform of both political parties and the policy agenda of government
    ignore African Americans' needs, then they have no democratic mechanism to
    solve their problems.

    Hajji Malik Al-Shabazz understood that the African Americans were still in the grip
    of Anglo-American domestic colonialism. He feared that the majority would prefer
    to force the minorities to assimilate into its European culture, leading eventually
    to the disappearance of their unique collective identities (ethnocide) rather than
    to negotiate a collective equal-status integration which might enable them, too,
    to use the tools of government (law-making powers, access to tax dollars, the
    control of institutions) to address their needs.

    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.
