From the Paper:"THE BLACK COMMUNITY AND AMERICAN NEOCOLONIALISM
Robert Allen, in his book Black Awakening in Capitalist America provides a cogent analysis of current race relations in the United States. In his assessment of the position of American blacks, where they live, their occupations, their status before the law, he makes an interesting and penetrating point. In Allen's view, there is no distinction between the state of blacks in America and the state of those overseas who live in colonial outposts of America. Colonialization is not limited merely to overseas locations in Allen's view. Colonialization is characterized by imperialist views and attendant oppression. The indignities and suffering that people undergo in America's and England's colonies are not less than those undergone by blacks in American ghettos."
