Muhammad Rasheed - Under ideal circumstances, it would be terrible for Black people to discuss their plans publicly, as it would break every normal rule of warfare strategy. But these are not ideal circumstances. During America’s chattel slave era, the white racist aristocracy rewarded enslaved Blacks for betraying their fellows under the Meritorious Manumission sub-cultural indoctrination, which pretty much guaranteed that at least one Black people out of every conspiratorial group would enthusiastically provide the secrets gleaned to white outsiders.
Consequently, taking major community and nation building planning/strategizing offline and behind closed doors wouldn’t have the desired effect because there’s a centuries old hole in the bucket, so to speak. I do not believe Black people are in the position to realistically plug that hole. The best way to deal with it is to take on an extreme transparency position, and create an open source, open communication environment to build up the Black Nation of American Descendants of Slavery (ADOS). That would make it perfectly okay to brainstorm solutions publicly, and would even prove to be critical to achieve longed for economic, social and political successes.
