sounds good, let's unify all of humanity.
There is no conflict between pan-humanism and pan-Africanism. Being human is a part of my identity, but it doesn't encompass all of my identity. There are some experiences that I share in common with other African people that I don't have in common with Mexicans but there are also some experiences that I have in common with Mexican men that I don't have in common with African women. It isn't an either or scenario, with one friend you can bond over a love of art, music and literature whereas another friend might not be interested in these things but you might share with them an interest in computers, science, sports etc. Every relationship we have is different from any other since all of the individuals we form relationships with are different from one another.
as has been explained to you several times, the lines you draw are arbitrary. you base them on ethnicity, or continent of origin, or whatever. replace 'europeans' and 'asians' with 'german shepherds' and 'siberian huskies' and it becomes immediately ridiculous.
Drawing a line between siblings and complete strangers is also arbitrary since all biological organisms on the planet share some genetic heritage in common, yet most people have a special kind of relationship with family members that they don't have with friends, lovers and strangers. You draw an arbitrary line between humans and chimpanzees but in my view, all sentient beings deserve equal, moral consideration. I have more in common with an adult chimpanzee than I do with a human infant.
if you start by drawing a circle around yourself, then extend it outward to encircle your immediate family, then again for your extended family, then again for your friends and their friends, then again for everyone in your hometown, then... clearly, if we're all doing this, our circles will overlap and we'll end up circling the whole planet. so why not do that in the 1st place? 'oh, no no no!' you say. 'we've got to stop at africa!' (or wherever.)
Being African is a part of my identity. Unity with other Africans is completely irrelevant to unity with Irish workers on the basis of class or unity with Black Brasiliens on the basis of race. You're seeing a conflict where there isn't any and I think it's overly simplistic.
there's you, and then there's everyone. those are the ends of the scale. choosing a point in between them will be arbitrary. we're all the same species.
Again, I appreciate the irony of your criticizing me for drawing arbitrary lines between Africans and non-Africans yet you're drawing an arbitrary line between humans and non-human great apes. Life is arbitrary, even classifying species is problematic (and there is no absolute trait that all humans and only humans share). There are many aspects to a person's identity and we relate to different people on different grounds, our relationship with one person has nothing to do with our relationship with another
Insecurity, something is wrong with my computer (or the site). I will try to respond to you later.
