The panel asks: What is it about the African psyche that will allow this heresy to happen?

With ECOWAS Heads of State accepting Morocco's membership in principle to the West African Bloc, the panel also discussed the hypocrisy of ECOWAS in accepting a North African Arabized nation, yet rejecting Haiti's application whose people we share historical, cultural, racial and religious heritage with. The panel asks: Why has our West Africans leaders allowed this to happen? What is the motivation for allowing an Arab League country who we have no racial or cultural relation with yet rejecting Haity who we have close ties with? Is France behind this? What is Senegal's role in this? What role did the Senegalese Muslim Brotherhoods play in this? Are we (Africans) morally weak to allow this heresy to happen? Should the Bloc be dismantled altogether and start a fresh - which serves the interest of Black Africans and Blacks from the Diaspora?  If a fellow Black nation like Haiti cannot join, yet ECOWAS in its wisdom decided to accept a non-Black nation like Morocco, should the Bloc be dismantled altogether? Join this controversial discussion.
