and they're not inappropriate to discuss within this post, but I also hope you see the way in which you're straying a bit from Malachi's original interest. He's not simply interested in the differences between struggles in different parts of the black world: he's interested in Pan-African leadership, that is, leadership of struggle on an international and inter-regional (world regions, that is) basis.
I wouldn't want anyone to get the idea that he was downplaying the struggle in America, because he has in no way tried to make it seem like there has been less struggle there. He's interested in why West Indians have (apparently? perhaps? possibly?) played more of a role from a Pan-African perspective.
