Revolutionary Africans must not only stand with the Palestinian struggle against settler colonialism but also understand that Zionism itself has played and continues to work against African liberation.
Zionist Israel gave political, economic, and military support to the racist apartheid regime in Azania/South Africa to further the oppression and exploitation of African people. Also, Jewish Africans from Ethiopia serve as cheap, exploited labor and suffer from the most egregious racism at the hands of their fellow “Jews” from Zionist Israel in occupied Palestine.
Standing against and overcoming Zionism is not just a struggle to liberate and return the land of the Palestinians to them but also it is part and parcel of the Africa people’s struggle for true liberation. African people must be a part of the struggle against Zionism.

There’s a growing consciousness of Africans in the US and around the world that is connecting the dots of our fates. It’s waking up to the idea that the police terror we face here is connected to the military terror the US inflicts upon the developing world. The non-stop anti-China propaganda we see daily is being realized for what it truly is— the drum beat for a new Cold War, from which many African nations will suffer. The US can hum it’s lullaby, but not everyone is going to listen.
Africanfuturism is similar to “Afrofuturism” in the way that blacks on the continent and in the Black Diaspora are all connected by blood, spirit, history and future. The difference is that Africanfuturism is specifically and more directly rooted in African culture, history, mythology and point-of-view as it then branches into the Black Diaspora, and it does not privilege or center the West.
Africanfuturism is concerned with visions of the future, is interested in technology, leaves the earth, skews optimistic, is centered on and predominantly written by people of African descent (black people) and it is rooted first and foremost in Africa. It’s less concerned with “what could have been” and more concerned with “what is and can/will be”. It acknowledges, grapples with and carries “what has been”.
