THINK MOORS/MUURS!!!

 

Islam, Peace, and Hotep,

I would caution all to Think and continue gaining FACTS about the Whole Truth and not the misinformation campaign paraded as NEWS!!! The US needs a race war, not us!!!

We have been level headed thus far for the most part, DON'T GET SUCKERED BY THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA. Attached are several relevant pieces of information which most of us are not aware of. I don't agree with all of it, but some things cannot be denied or at least should be considered. It is, was, and ever will be a senseless tragedy, but the strategies being discussed and spread around may not necessarily achieve the desired goals (Whatever they may purport to be).

1. No Justice, No Peace is a Slogan, NOT A STRATEGY!

2. Boycott The State of Florida - Who is the Target? Will the Rich go broke? No
Will struggling working folks be affected? Yes (Is this the Goal?) Don't think so

3. Boycott Companies owned by the Koch Bros? They are filthy Rich-too late for that

Do Y'all Really Want To Make Some Noise?

1. How about " let's stop Murdering each other for beginner's". 52,000 brothers murdered from 1999-2009. 94% by Black Hands (48,880). 56,000 US soldiers were killed in the Vietnam War! When did "WE" declare war on ourselves???

2. Quit Supporting Rappers and Entertainers Who Promote Death Using Hip-Hop Culture
Trayvon Martin had "Liver Damage" from abusing LEAN. Liver Damage at 17 yrs old
HOW MANY TIMES CAN YOU SAY VERSACE IN 3 MINUTES DRAKE? It's a hit-what a joke!

3. Join an organization that teaches you who you are and who your ancestors were.

4. Quit buying and wearing $100 and $200 dollar sneakers. Kill the demand, the price will drop. Basic economics-Supply and Demand! I refuse to wear Jordans even if they were free!

5. Turn off the TV, Read and Study More with your children.

6. Stay home more and cook at home more. Stay out of the streets as much as possible.

7. Get with the REAL LEADERS in your community and build, not these same old dusted off Civil Rights All Stars who have been Missing In Action for the last 15 years that the Mainstream Media has Chosen For You. You know who they are!!! they are on TV right now!

and the GRAND FINALE-----------------

8. Now if you really want to make a STRONG GANGSTA MOVE FOR THE ENTIRE NATION - DO NOT SUPPORT BASKETBALL, FOOTBALL, OR BASEBALL (NBA,WNBA,NFL,MLB) FOR ONE WHOLE YEAR. NOT COLLEGE SPORTS, HIGH SCHOOL, LITTLE LEAGUE. DON'T EVEN PLAY! Instead, focus on your school work!!! Trust me, your actions speak louder than anything

We don't wan't to put anyone out of work anywhere, but if you are going to boycott, DO THE SHIT RIGHT OR SIT DOWN!!! I love sports, but if these $100,000,000.00 Dollar Slaves can't give back, I won't die if I miss it for a year or forever. Maybe it's time we bring back the negro leagues anyway, but we can't call it Negro, call it Moorish American Basketball League, Kemetic Zulu Baseball league, Asiatic Womens (Sista Girl) Basketball league, and get rid of Football altogether because of the long term effects of multiple head injuries, knee injuries, etc. We can create our own damn Jobs just through Sports alone. We can play Basketball all year long. We are the Greatest!!! We can do what we want to do, damnitt!

Think Moors/Muurs, All we need is control over one industry, ourselves, and all of the talent that comes with it. The Prophet Noble Drew Ali said that the wheels of industry would stop one day, and when they started again it would be in the Asiatics favor "OUR FAVOR." Maybe it is getting to be about that time. Everybody can get in on this.

Didn't mean to get carried away, but since I got started this is how we raise money. All we have is ourselves, our bodies. We can actually sell our own blood nationwide and raise probably a Billion dollars in a year. Hospitals sell it for Hundreds of dollars a pint, can you see the mathematics. They get it damn near free, using the Red Cross. Make them Pay! Look it up on the web, Blood is a Multi-Million to a Billion Dollar industry in the US. Not to mention worldwide!

It sure beats spilling it in the streets for free. As a matter of fact, brothers might actually stop killing each other if we understand how valuable our blood really is and how vital it is to rebuilding ourselves as a Great Nation again. Help me think this through Moors/Muurs, we can do this! We gotta make a Major Move, not these old We shall Overcome 1960 Sucker Moves all over again. We need our brothers and sisters, and europeans to hold on to the 10 jobs we got left in this country, especially in Florida. Think if it was New York, how many Moors and their family members would lose their jobs. It's time to strike out on our own with new ideas and new people to take us there.

What Makes Us Moors/Muurs in the first place - OUR BLOOD!!!

Forget the Links for Now, give some feedback on this idea (all ideas accepted). Let's see what we can accomplish in 365 days. I bet New York would probably have at least 15 Basketball teams alone. Chicago, LA, Tx, even little towns, down here in the ATL at least 5-10. This is just the basic Framework, We pick up new teams each year. The Sister's run their own league but we all work as one. The ABL (Asiatic Basketball League)-FOI Basketball Association-, whatever we agree upon, provided we can agree. Brainstorm Moors-this is one simple example. Think how much income is generated through the sports industrial complex. How many jobs are created for Europeans from our talent? Merchandising, etc. All we need are facilities to play. Schools are closing all over the country, facilities are available. We simply transfer the wealth of the sports industry from our hard work from these big schools by not playing for them.

Just a thought Moors, but this is something we actually control right now, our bodies. If we could just get our minds headed in the same direction, we can pull this off. Many other things too. This one is just idea, we need many.

Insurance will be provided by OBAMACARE.

Peace and Love

Our young brother is no longer with us in the flesh. It didn't slow down the killers in Atlanta, they were back at killing each other again the night after the verdict. How about your city? These are not to put dirt on our young brothers name, but we cannot be manipulated by the Mainstream Media. Think Moors, Think, it aint illegal yet!

These links look at the matter from another angle -


Completely different perspective of the entire situation:

MESSAGE TO THE YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULTS OF THE WORLD

You must seek knowledge: Knowledge is to know and is the foundation of all things in existence. Knowledge is infinite. Knowledge is to know thyself and to know others.  Knowledge is to know your surroundings, environment, the nature of life and death, animals, the solar system, the universe, the past, present, and the future. Knowledge is to know The Supreme One.


You must have wisdom: Wisdom is the manifestation of one's knowledge, the ways and actions one uses to make his or her knowledge known. To be wise, you must choose the right path, know right from wrong and teach others to be wise and set them in the right direction.


Understanding: You must have and get understanding. Understanding is when one draws a picture in his or her mind to see all things clearly with the third eye, the mind. To absorb what you get from knowledge and break it down so that you and all people will understand.
With these three elements of life, we must build a better world, teach the young and old, use natural resources to uplift the people, not to make individuals rich, but to put the Human mind back on the right path and get rid of sick racist mentalities.
Peace and Respect,

Message To The People Black, Brown, Yellow, Red, White People All Human Beings
And Aliens Too Universal Life Forms Of All Forms

We, the Universal Zulu Nation are an organization and a universal nation, for all people on this planet so called Earth, as well for alien life form of people in the universe, whether your from Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, Earth, etc. We the Zulu's are not foolish people to believe that we are the only life in the universe and that the creator, (Allah, Jehovah, Jah, Yahweh, God or which ever name you wish to call the Almighty One) is only limited to producing LIFE only on the planet so called Earth. And if you do believe we are the only ones in the universe, then we should just get rid of science and base everything on falsehood and not even search for truth.


We as Zulu's of all races, colors, and creeds should study research on everything that's anything, and should always be thinking people and not ZOMBIES.
We as Zulu's who are from many different races, colors, and creeds should not be afraid to hear different views coming from humans or aliens from other planets. If one is a racist he or she still should be heard, If one preaches or teaches love, truth, science, o r whatever, even falsehood, he or she should be heard.
It is our duty as Zulu's and human beings to search for truth and nothing but truth. There are many who will hate The Universal Zulu Nation just because our organization is truly a multi-cultural organization and a nation for all people who wish to join, even aliens if they are for peace, unity, knowledge, wisdom, and understanding in the universe. There are evil ones and groups who are secretly trying to bring chaos (problems of Hell) all over Earth and in the universe. But we must always keep up strong FAITH with ourselves and the Creator of the Universe. We do not need any middlemen or women to intervene between us and the Lord of all worlds.


We as Zulu's of the Universal Zulu Nation must always show respect to those who give us respect and must always be disciplined, but always alert watching, observing, looking (seeing) with our third eye (the brain) and always listening and analyzing.
In this age of time, all people on the planet so called Earth should study and talk to each other and try to understand each others ways of life and not use each other for another's advantage. We must know Black, Brown, Yellow, Red, and White history, true history and not falsehood history.
Good or bad, heal the wounds and lets move on to a glorious future, not a future of death and destruction.

 
STAND UP AND UNITE,
KEEP THE POWER TO THE PEOPLE,
AND NOT TO THE GREEDY CLICKS (EVIL ONES)
WHO WISH TO CONTROL ALL PEOPLE
AND BRING SLAVERY ALL OVER THE WORLD
AND ALL OVER THE UNIVERSE,
PEACE & UNITY & GOD

All Religions Promote Lies About God
 
 
Hoteph Beloved Sisters And Brothers:
 
I am just going to react briefly to the Lies now being spread about the now find of Jesus remains and his Family, in my book Lies about God, I clearly states the Jesus story is a Lie and Jesus never did live as portrayed in the the Holy book of the religious believers and I remain firm in that I know to be Divinely True.
 
The claim now being aired over the devil media about the developing story concerning the find of Jesus remains,  which now have been discovered as they so claim and such a claim only verify my claim that the character Jesus is no more than a figment of the Human Being Lying Mind.
 
The entire DNA claim is a lie, concerning the Bible Jesus and I stress the Bible Jesus because it is that Jesus the world has been duped about and maneuvered to Love with a passion not shown toward each other.
 
It is a saying that if you start out lying then that lie, in order to give it creditability, has to keep on lying, but before long the Lie will be pushed by its own action into a corner, whereby the Lie fall defeated before the Divine Truth and that is what this new claim about Jesus remains and his family has done, it verify my claim about Jesus never have been to this planet as so stated in your Holy book.
 
The Claim today is that, now Jesus has been founded, yet in your Holy book it clearly states that Jesus was the act of God planting the seed of God into a woman call Mary and she did give birth to a Man Child they named Jesus, he came to this Earth and was Murdered on Logs nailed and tied across each other, he was Buried in an apartment like Tomb and stayed there for two days and on the third day he emerged from the Tomb where Thomas and the rest of Jesus disciples saw and talked to him and as they were walking up the path together, Jesus suddenly became no more, in other words, he just disappeared up into the Heavenly sky.
 
Now, if the Book you call the Bible of Truth state such about Jesus and it does, then how in the Hell can what this devilish Human Being is making claim to today, be True, their claim to have found Jesus, attack every word in your Holy Book and does verify such words  to be A lie, in reference to Jesus, and since they lied to you about Jesus, then one can logically assume that there be many more lies contained in that Book call the Word of God, which such a claim is a lie in and of itself.
 
Beloved, if it be the will of our Ancient First way Ancestors, I will cover more in detail about this virus call religion in my class on Saturday Night, on Destee.com at 8 Pm.
 
The Divine Truth, Black Folks Despise The Divine Truth, In Favor Of The Profane Lie.

             "PRACTICING LAW WITHOUT A LICENSE?"

 
You only hold a piece of paper that warrants the original deed exists.

The same applies to motor vehicles. You are given a Certificate of Title when you buy a car, but the actual title itself is being held as collateral by the government.  You are holding a piece of paper that certifies the title exisits. In other words, even if you have no house mortgage or car loan, you still don't own them... the United States holds title to your private property.

The previously mentioned Council of State Governments is now the  National Conference Of Commissioners On Uniform State Laws. This organization membership consists of only Bar(fly) licensed lawyers, the illegal and immoral monopoly that controls our nation. These licensed socialists (communists seize private land without compensation, don't they?) parade around with the royal Nobility Title of Esquire (Esq.), but according to the Constitution And By-Laws of their organization, they lobby for, pass, order, and execute statutory provisions to "help implement international treaties of the United States or where world uniformity would be desirable" Source-1990/91 Reference Book, National Council of Commissioners On Uniform State Laws, page 2.

The ABA LIE: Unauthorized Practice of Law.   Just how does a Good and Lawful Christian defend Himself when forced, against His Will, to stand and speak before the purported 'courts' now operating in the United States? Is He to be mute and say nothing, citing the Laws of God? Although every Christian has the Right to choose His own court, this is not so practical when he is forced by duress and coercion  to 'appear' in a court He has not chosen nor recognizes as being subject to God's Laws. How can he 'appear' in an un-Godly court? Our answer to this is to do as Christ Jesus did when He was forced to stand before the judgment of the un-Godly. There is no set of Rules other than the example His Word has already laid out for Us. However, every Christian should have knowledge of how this world operates, and that includes the purported 'laws' and 'courts' being forced upon us over and above God's Sovereign Laws. To defend oneself is nearly impossible in their 'courts', and to seek the assistance of Godly counsel is not allowed by what they dare to call, but refuse to define, as the "unauthorized practice of law".

There may be much truth to the claim that the Fourteenth Amendment to the federal constitution was instigated by the legal professionals' trade union, now known as The American Bar Association. Many facts support the claim that this "Bar" monopoly was established in Christian America, immediately after Lincoln's (un)Civil War, to create and substitute a 'colorless' system of uniformed general slavery to replace the previous system of black slavery. This was to have been implemented by guaranteeing a monopoly of the courts for their own member attorneys, judges, and Municipal Corporations (City, County, and State). This monopolizing and unlawful labor union, The Bar Association, has forbidden anyone but their own exclusive member attorneys to give legal advice or representation, which has prevented any Good and Lawful Christian from being assisted in these purported 'Courts of Law' by a non-union lawyer or by a "non-lawyer", as used in their own terminology.

Lawyers (Attorn-ers) -- Just a Poem ...

Law... could still be as simple as the Ten, set down in stone away back when.  Trial... could still be a simple chain of events, of un-embellished testimony and evidence.

Alas... simple Laws didn't provide enough bread, to keep the old time Barrister's fed.  So... somewhere back in the mists of olden times, proto lawyers (Attorn-ers) decided,

"We can rake in more dimes!"  "If we write the Laws in such a way, "The fools will have to pay our exorbitant fee, if they want any chance of staying... Free!"

Thus began our contorted Legal System, ending any semblence of common sence or reason.  'Lawyers' (attorn-ers) ... had come upon the Earhtly scene,  and from that day on... 'LAW'has become obscene

Lawyers (attorn-ers) ... are really a totally useless group. Their only function... to invent and dispense Bull poop.  Spewing out reams of blarney and hocus pocus,  to ensure 'Truth and Justice'stay just out of focus.

When Lawyers (attorn-ers) can't make enough in the Court, they seek out the 'Employer of Last Resort'.  They'll troll about for ANY political offers, too more lavishly swill from the Public coffers!

Then... to repay those who have financed their foray, they enact whatever Laws... their benefactors say. And to ensure employment for the next Lawyer (attorn-er) crop, they enact... yet another pile of Legislative Bull plop.

Our whole Legal/Political system has gone out of control. It has become overpaid people... on Government dole.  "They" are given the rare opportunity to do some good,  and make the World better... if only they would!

SUMMARY:  Attorn-eys are B.A.R. Flys, Bloodsuckers, Cockroaches, Leeches, Maggots, Rob Peter (you) to pay Paul (their masters),   Parasites, Vampires, and their 'spirit' was already at the Garden of  Eden as re-presented by the serpent: " ... Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord had made.  And he said to the woman (Eve) "Has God indeed said, 'You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?" ... "And the serpent said to the woman, 'You will not surely die.  For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil"... Genesis 3: 1 - 5.

Accusatory, Arguendo, Controversy, Dispute, Divide and Conquer, Doubt, Interrogation, Questioning, Twister of WORDS, etc.  The Fall of Man came when they listened to the serpent with the spirit of an attorn-ey instead of their Creator, and they became 'Fallen Angels' = 'Felon Agents'.

Hijackin' tha Airwaves:
Radio Revolution


                   

It was a typical night in the studios of WTHG (We Thug
Radio) as DJ Pimp Dad started to play the Chicken
Little Soup Dance for the 5th time within an hour. He
was just getting ready to give the  411 about the
latest G-Unit beef when a squad of Brothers and
Sisters with dreads and headwraps bumrushed the
studio. Pimp Daddy grabbed his gold plated pimp cup
and made a mad dash for the exit as DJ Afrika Black
threw promotional copies of "Fry that Chicken" at him
all the way to the parking lot...

Radio has a long relationship with the struggle for
Black empowerment. During the 60's,  it not only was
the avenue by which "I'm Black and I'm Proud" reached
the masses but it was the source of vital information
by which people organized. After all, how would the
people ever  have  known about the protest in front of
City Hall if DJ Big Bob hadn't hipped the folks that
somethin' major was going down, downtown.

What would the Soul Children of the 70's have done if
it wasn't for Righteous Rudy playing songs like "Fight
the Power." The Brothers and Sisters sure would have
been in the dark had it not been for Sweet Sista Soul
tellin' everybody "what it is, what it was, and what
it willl be" on her morning program "Tellin' it Like
it Is."

But that was then and this is now.

The songs about fighting the power have been traded in
for songs that celebrate Brothers killing Brothers.
The announcements about organizing for Black
LIBERATION have been replaced by free ticket give
aways to the Ying Yang after party at Magic Fingers
Strip Club Massage Parlor and Chicken Hut. And since
the FCC no longer requires radio stations to provide
public affairs programing, the crtical need to know
information about genocidal plots to destroy Afrikan
babies has been replaced by round the clock coverage
of Jay Z and Beyonce's wedding plans...

But out of darkness comes the light. Just when you
were ready to throw your FM Radio out tha window, here
comes Shiari's Radio to the rescue. The show which is
hosted by the soulful  Sista  "Miss Mona"  (Monica
Daye) and the Revolutionary "Da Poet" Tim Jackson airs
every Friday night  8PM -10PM EST on WXDU 88.7 in
Durham NC and world wide on the net at
http://www.wxdu.org .

The dynamic duo is bringing back the days when radio
not only made you feel good about being Black but gave
you information to let you know why you should be
Black and Proud! They are currently seeking Brothers
and Sisters with positive music/Hip Hop/poetry to
submit their work to be played for the world to enjoy.

Also at 9PM they kick off the "Spit that Poetry Hour"
where the top Conscious Hip Hop and Spoken Word
artists on the planet kick their freestyles to the
universe. You never know who will check in on Shairi's
Radio on any given night to drop a jewel of WISDOM on
the people.

It is important that we support Shairi's Radio so that
they can give the Conscious Community what we have
been missing for far too long.
As LL Cool J once said "You know I can't live without
my radio." Thanks to Shairi's Radio, we don't have
to....


To experience Shairi's radio hit http://www.WXDU.org

Ask a Black Person
Part 1
 
Ask a Black person in the Congressional Black Caucus, why is there only a few of them speaking truth to power and why are those few women.
 
Ask a Black person, ages 13 – 19 years old, to name a conscious rapper their age. Ask them to name a poet that spits positive rhymes to inform them about the politics and social issues of today -- something to inspire them to take action.
 
Ask a Black person who calls himself an intellectual (from ages 30 – 50) to name the last time he came up with a thought that was carried into action -- that actually changed the reality of Blacks for the better. Maybe if they stopped trying to 1. Sell white ideologies, 2. Sell books 3. Sell themselves or 4. Attack other Blacks, we would have a positive answer.
 
Ask a Black person, why Blacks vote for the Democratic Party in such high numbers when it mirrors the Republican Party on important issues such as: the death penalty, the drug war, the prison industrial complex, the war in Iraq , ex-felon disenfranchisement (persons with criminal records not being able to vote in federal elections in particular) and reparations. This means there is only a one party system - one beast with two faces. Ask if Blacks can tell you the benefits of voting for either Democrat or Republican. Ask them why they have not started a political party that the country can accept as a decent change.
 
Ask a Black person how prosperous were Blacks in the job market before the immigration debate started. Also, ask them why they can’t see that building a wall on the southern border, while not erecting one on the northern border, is racist. Also ask them why they are so willing to fight for white supremacy - the fight against whites one day being the minority in this country. Ask them, do they know that the same type of Negro found it their duties to make sure that evil white slave owners were more comfortable than themselves. Ask them if they are from that long bloodline of Negros who snitched out slave revolts, condemned reconstruction, did not mind lynching as long as it was not them, hated the civil rights trouble-makers and worked for the government as a COINTELPRO agent to destroy Black leaders and activists.
 
Ask a Black person in the Nation of Islam, why haven’t it created a distribution system for Black music the way they have for the Final Call newspaper.
 
Ask a Black person who knows any of the clergy supporting Bush, why are their pastors cozying up to a person that is lying and having men, women and children killed around the world. Also, ask them, why these preachers are embracing a person that supports spying on innocent people in this country. Ask them how many times they have told their children, “You are the company you keep,” and “If you lie, you will steal.”
 
Ask a Black person in a Greek letter organization, why they behave like street gangs in college. They have their colors, hand signs, mouth calls, initiation and they fight against similar groups. Also ask them why they name their organizations after the people who learned from, and stole from Blacks thousands of years ago.
 
Ask a Black person that knows Oprah, why when asked about Hip Hop she sounded like the white person who says, “Some of my best friends are Black.” Ask her why when asked, she said she listens to 50 Cent while working out. Why doesn’t she listen to Public Enemy, Afrika Bambaataa, KRS One, Ice Cube, Dead Prez or Common? Ask if she knows that 50 Cent says the words “nigga” “hoe” “pimp” and “bitch” more than either of the above named artists combined. Ask her if she knows that Ludacris is a more positive artist with, arguably, better lyrics and music – the person she dissed on her show. And, ask her, even if she does not listen to above named positive artist all of the time, would it not have been better to promote their music instead of 50’s. Maybe 50 Cent is on to something – if you diss someone, they will promote you.
 
Ask a Black person, why are they so beautiful and powerful in spite of all of these questions. Ask them do they know that the entire world is waiting for their leadership – not the kind that is sent out to do the dirty work of whites who rule this country.
 
To be continued

Repentance prayer: Almighty God, in the name of Jesus, I confess right now, and realize that I am a sinner. I Repent of all my sins.  I make an 180 degree turn away from all my sins.  I change my heart, I change my mind, I change my direction and I turn toward God.  I thank you almighty Yahweh through Jesus blood and his name that I am saved.  Amen

Greetings Brothers and Sisters,

I just had to take some time out to make a little comment about the Terrible Tragedy of the Asian Tsunami and put it in perspective with our Global African situation. Your comments will be greatly appreciated.

May the Ancestors guide and protect you on our way.

Love and life

Tsunami in Perspective (1)

What is the Significance of the Asian Tsunami to Global Africa?

On the 26th December 2004, a massive earthquake measuring 9 on the Richter scale exploded on the seabed of the Indian ocean near the western edge of Indonesia. Within hours this earthquake had wreaked havoc in at least eleven countries in the immediate vicinity with a series of giant Tsunamis whose tentacles reached over a broad area as far away as Kenya, Seychelles, Somalia, Madagascar and Mauritius, some 3000 miles away on the Eastern shores of Africa.

Many commentators are calling this Earthquake Tsunami the worst "natural" disaster ever experienced in world history - at least in modern times. It is estimated that around 160,000 people have died, millions have been made homeless and destitute and hundreds of billions of dollars worth of businesses have been destroyed. Some observers predict that the final figure will be closer to 200,000 dead, providing opportunistic mass diseases such as cholera do not get a chance to take advantage of the resultant sanitation problems.

Admirably, people all over the world have risen to the challenges presented by this enormous human disaster and are pouring in materials, foodstuffs, cash and even volunteering their services to try and alleviate some of the hardships of the survivors of this huge tragedy.

Over $2 billion has been pledged for the rescue and rebuilding effort so far, including $500,000,000 from Japan alone, which is almost twice the next largest contribution from the US of $350,000,000. As the sheer scale of the disaster emerges, more and more countries are pledging aid to Tsunami ravaged Asian countries including Kenya whose own coastline was also hit by the raging waves which displaced over 50,000 and killed over 200 in neighbouring Somalia.

Commentators estimate that it will take years, if not decades, for countries like Indonesia, Thailand and Sri Lanka to recover from this disaster both economically and demographically.

No doubt this Earthquake Tsunami is indeed a horrendous disaster. By far the greatest loss to all concerned are the human casualties, the 160,000 to 200,000 who died and their grieving families. My deepest sympathy and condolence goes out to the survivors and all those who have lost relatives, friends and colleagues as a result.

That said, I would like you to come with me and take a closer look at the disaster in its global context from a Global African perspective:

It has been common knowledge for over ten years now (and the situation has grown much, much worse in the past five years), that an African child below the age of five dies every 3 (three) seconds on the continent. That means every week 201,600 African children don’t get to celebrate their 5th birthday. Every year ten and a half million (10,483,200) African children perish, some through curable and preventable diseases such as malaria, small pox, chicken pox, measles, whooping cough, dysentery, some through malnutrition, and others through combinations of neglect, starvation, poisoning, political mismanagement, local wars and deliberate genocidal policies of criminal, puppet governments and enemy sponsored NGOs.

Of course, we are not taking into consideration another twenty million or so annual deaths including: the millions of older children between the ages of five and fifteen; greater numbers of young adults of prime procreative age who are being sacrificed on the killing fields of Kongo, Sudan, Somalia, Liberia, etc.; the growing millions each year, falsely accused of carrying the AIDS/HIV virus, the majority of whom are suffering from curable and preventable diseases but who are being dumped on the medical scrapheap to die as bad, terminal and therefore untreatable.

This means, in human terms, Africa is haemorrhaging from a disaster much greater in scale than two Asian Earthquake Tsunamis each and every week, year in and year out - and Global Africa, the people whose future is being destroyed on a daily basis say nothing and do nothing.

My Afrikan Brothers and Sisters,

We all have reached a time where technology has allowed us all the ability to converse and express our views. As black people, we now want to know more facts than we ever have. Some of us keep others on their toes with daily questions concerning our origin, our past and also our future. Our number one concern seems to be how to overcome all of our many problems. Do we stay here or do we go? Do we wait on God or fight this fight alone? Is this a spiritual battle or do we wait on politics? Is this an intellectual battle or are we going to actually do something?
Are things going to get better or are we fooling ourselves? Do we unite or continue our battle online and only with each other? Is there a promised land or do we get with the native people and demand a return of our stolen land? Is this a moral question or should we abide by their illegal laws?

Some have suggested reparations, while others have suggested Jesus.
Some have suggested education, while others have no opinion at all.
Some of us don't think there is anything wrong to begin with. We intellectualize every aspect of our journey here on this planet in hopes of what?
I have reached the conclusion that this is all becoming entertainment for the masses. One hundred years from now, people will conclude that we spent our time trying to outsmart one another.
If this is our struggle, we must redefine it totally. We are our worst enemy. Our denial of this is why we do so very little about a workable solution to our own problems. First we must pledge to get up off our asses and hit the streets. Stop trying to convince each other of our beliefs. We must stop trying to copy europeans with the use of titles. We all originate from a time when we were only Black and now must return to that ideology. We continue to knock on life's door being Christians or Muslims, democrats or republicans etc. and forget our genetic link to the original Black people.
We were once denied these associations so now we are so proud to be included. We now reject one another based on which group we belong to.
The government loves our diversity because it causes our disunity. Our status here and abroad is looked upon with laughter because we are claiming titles that further divide us. We have the audacity to claim to be Americans but won't embrace our Afrikan neighbor. We need not look at geographical lines on a map but the blood lines running through our veins. Our enemies have given us a multitude of choices and then sit back and watch us fight each other over titles and locations on a map. We need to love our folks whether they are from Ghana or Mississippi whether they have a PhD. or a G.E.D. We need to love our folks because they are our folks. Being Black should give us a pass with each other. We should all stop pretending to be something that we are not and start to be who we are.

We must start to knock on the door as Black people and Black people only. All other titles should be left at home for our personal use.
The struggle will always remain a struggle when we show up as a bickering, divided and unorganized race of people. So far, the people in the struggle trying to move us ahead, very seldom ever discuss their personal, political and religious philosophies. It is not about us as individuals but a matter of stewarding the untold number of people who are clueless. The comatose don't care about our religious, political or educational affiliation. It should be the real Afrikan in us that put our people first and our new found intelligence second. We must start to show up globally as one people without separate titles.


Can we imagine our future when we start to embrace each other on sight, instead of asking "what are you"? Let us tear down all the barriers that keep us from our appointment with greatness.
We online, are the worst example of neglecting the real people in need. I need to do more and you need to do more. We should not rest until we all have the complete freedom to reach our full potential.
That includes a return to our own spirituality, economics, education and culture, free of interference from anyone. Freedom would also mean a complete return of all our land. Acceptance of less means acceptance of their superior status over us. We have the power but only if we unite globally with all people of colour and not demand, but take back what is naturally ours, by any means. We are the majority population universally, and must not give in to the weakening power of division.


We have a spiritual and humane obligation to return and enlighten our less fortunate brothers and sisters. How sad it is, to see us entertaining each other with so much redundancy when there is so much real work waiting to be done.

I have been traveling the country meeting with our brothers and sisters. We must gather our collective strength to formulate an effort to reach out to all the people in need of a spiritual home and in search of an earthly mission. We must all reject the tendency to continue as is. As long as we are willing to unite for the good of our Afrikan ancestors and the people clinging to hope today, please join us. We have wise men and women who I believe and know can help unite us here and abroad. We must all accept that we will all have to answer to a higher authority.

Hoteph My Dear Beloved Sisters and Brothers:

May your Minds be refurbished on this most profane celebration of fantasy, today.

Beloved, as my mind fell back on a passage in the Honorable Chancellor Williams book, Destruction of Afrikan Civilization, that passage serve as no more of a look, down through Time, and saw what happened to the Afrikan, which mean, such a statement passage, was also indicative of the contemporary Afrikan people.

Well I guess you are wondering what passage I am referring to, at least some of you might be.

Well, I will tell you, remember the passage in brother Chancellor Williams book where the two old gentlemen crossed each other path and one asked the other this question?

What happen to the people of Sumer and the reply was, they LOST THEIR "HISTORY" AND DIED!!!

So today, I ask the same question about the people of Afrika, what happen to the people of Afrika and the answer is prophetic, they LOST THEIR STORY AND DIED !!!

You see beloved, the two people are one and the same.

LOOK MY DEAR BELOVED, NO TAKE A CLEAR AND PRECISE LOOK AT AFRIKA, AND HER PEOPLE, TELL ME WHAT DO YOU SEE AND DO YOU LIKE WHAT YOU SEE?

Well, I will tell you what I see, and what I say will be the truth, unadulterated, and if you are looking truthfully with me, then I know you see what I will tell you I see.

Beloved sisters and brothers, I see dead people walking, crying, hungry, a people in an environment that is famine of true Afrikan knowledge, a people who humbly submit to the western world way of life, with its religion serving as its foundation, I see a people who revere tribalism and has the audacity to justify such a weapon of Afrika and Afrikan destruction.

I see a people that is divided and desire not to be united, I see greed, envy, jealousy, addicted to rule over others and exert power over the Afrikan down trodden, I see Afrikan intellectual who just get off by being able to sound intelligent as we point out the flaws of Afrika and the Afrikans with no burning desire to face the truth as to what really is the solution to such a once great Nation problem.

I see murder in the form of all sort of slaughter of Afrikan people by Afrikan people, with some choosing to be identified other than what we are, Black and Afrikan.

I see a once great nation who once had Love for each other and now is in deplorable competition with each other.

I SEE A ONCE GREAT AFRIKAN PEOPLE WHO REFUSE TO BOND WITH A LONG LOST RELATIVE IN NORTH AMERICA, WHO NOW IS QUALIFIED TO ASSIST IN RESURRECTING THAT ONCE GREAT AFRIKAN NATION AND DESPISE THE FACT, WE THE CHILDREN OF THE MIDDLE PASSAGE, ARE HEIRS TO OUR ENSLAVED ANCESTORS REPARATION AND REFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE SUCH TRUTH, IN THE FORM OF SUPPORT.

I see a once visionary and wise Afrikan Nation That has gone blind, I see dead Afrikans, walking and running, but making no tracks and getting nowhere close to the Soul and spirit THAT the True Afrikan once had.

So I ask you my dear beloved, what happen to the people of Afrika and the proverb remain relevant to this day, THEY LOST THEIR STORY AND DIED!!!

It Is Time to condemn The Lie and elevate The Truth!!!

We Must cause Trouble (with the truth ) Until Our Liberation!!!

UP! UP! YOU MIGHTY RACE, YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH WHAT YOU WILL!!! ( GARVEY )

It Is The Black Fool Who Say, I Have Lost Nothing In Afrika!!! ( OSIRIS )

I Come, I Share, You Either Accept Or Reject, I move on!!!

Hoteph My Dear Beloved Sisters And Brothers:

Beloved, here is why Afrika and the Afrikans will continue in the stupor of dishonesty when dealing with Afrika and Afrikans problems and I speak of the problems we face in Afrika and the Diaspora, america in particular.

We have become pretty good in using intellectual jargons as we attempt to project an honest face when discussing Afrika, but you see such jargons are not supported with a clear reasonable perception, when the Diaspora Afrikan is attempted to interject our perspective of what is wrong with Afrikans in Afrika and have not the common knowledge of what is wrong with the Diaspora Afrikan, nor do we have the Spiritual motivation to approach such a serious issue as Afrika and the Afrikans condition in the world.

First of all we so call intellectuals attempt to use the mind and eye of their teacher, the oppressor, and it is that information we hide behind, in the way of so claiming what is rational approaches to dealing with Afrikans in Afrika problems, not realizing that those teachers which our intellectual prestige hang, is so off base and deceiving, when giving out information about Afrikan problems, to the point it reveal how mental vulnerable we have become as Diaspora Afrikans.

Any Afrikans in their original mind, know that Afrikans solution is not enclosed in some diplomatic approach to Afrika problems, nor is the solution visible in america political science 101 up to PhD.

The solution to Afrikans problems in Afrika is enclosed in the mind of the True Afrikan in the Diaspora, who is no longer a prison of a mentality that has been sowed in the mind of the Diaspora Afrikans, who has no desire to free such a mind set that has experienced a mind degeneration, a mind that once use to be a fertile original mind.

When dealing with Afrikans problems in Afrika by the Diaspora Afrikan, it must become a war of knowledge and reasonable seriousness and there is no time for attempting to construct a buddy, buddy system in such a war of engagement, meant to arrive at a practical approach and solution to Afrikans problems in Afrika.

The Diaspora Afrikan has an obligation to become the conduit to be used to Liberate Afrika and the Afrikans and the first line of offense is to establish and win the trust and hearts of our Afrikans Sisters and brothers in Afrika that is on the ground and not the halls of presidential palaces.

We are talking about Afrika and Afrikans Liberation here, and not Afrikans assimilation, because if so, one or two things will emerge from such a successful action and that is, Afrikans will remain in the oppressive vice she is now in, or Afrikans will become as the Diaspora Afrikan and the both represent Afrikan mental confusion and oppression.

The true solution to Afrika and Afrikan problems, in my opinion, require the true Afrikan to face the fact that there must be the development of a mind-set among all true Afrikans to revolt against all injustices, be it in Afrika or in the Diaspora, because all laws are not just laws, and if the laws fail to represent justice for all, then the people receiving the injustices have the right or shall I say the obligation to Rebel against all injustices, and in Afrika, as I speak, there is no Justice for the Afrikan people in Afrika or in america.

Afrikans in the Diaspora must not only lock hands with the Afrikans in Anfrika but must now lock minds and such a union if in harmony and is balance will reveal the truth about what we both, Afrikan in Afrika and the Afrikan in the Diaspora must do in order to Liberate Afrika and the Afrikan People and such Liberation will only take place in Afrika.

It Is Time To Condemn The Lie And Elevate the Truth!!!

We Must Cause Trouble ( With the Truth ) Until Our Liberation!!!

The Black Fool It Is That say, I Have Lost Nothing In Afrika!!! ( Osiris )

I, Come, I Share, You Either Accept Or Reject, I Move On !!!

Hoteph My Beloved Sisters And Brothers:

Well my dear beloved, I see at least the issue of Reparation is beginning to get its due respect, if no more than intensifying the discussion about it.

As the author of the message below said, there are many diverse opinions about Reparation, some are serious about working to have Reparation serve as a tool that will bring about a restoration of the lives of those of us who are the descendants of our Enslaved Ancestors and then there are those in the Reparation movement looking to serve our own feeble material urges from the prospect of us receiving Reparation, but be that as it may because in time the crooks in the Reparation movement will be weeded out and dealt with appropriately.

What I want to address here is the five stages in bodied in the message below, as it address this most sacred issue, Reparation.

Here is The Sankofa Repatriation Take on Reparation as I address the five stages form a concept of Truth and Reality, which will not set to well with many of us claiming to be truly interested in this glorious issue,Reparation.

I am a realist and a non- conformist, I only follow the lead of My Ancient Carbon Afrikan Ancestors in all things pertaining to my life and in this instance, let us deal with the Sacredness of Reparation, as it relate to our Enslaved Ancestors, the Children of our Enslaved Ancestors and the Carbon Afrikan Family in general.

The problem with Black Folks in regard to Reparation, we attempt to analyze and propose solutions concerning Reparation by taking a physical approach in attempt to understand and solve the issue of Reparation.

Not so my dear beloved, in order to clearly understand and be able to solve the issue of Reparation , it must be approached from both the physical as well as the Spiritual,with a Spiritual understanding leading the way in our Demand for Reparation.

We are not in a war with the criminal responsible for Chattel Slavery, which now give the Children of our Enslaved Ancestors the divine Right to Demand Just payment for work already performed by our Enslaved Ancestors and Reparation is related to our Enslaved Ancestors and nobody else.

Who it seem we are at war with, are ourselves about Reparation and such a war could be self defeating, which in term would be a insult and a show of gross disrespect to our Enslaved Ancestors and that is why the True warriors for Reparation must not be distracted and must deal with all Black internal distractions.

Now, let us move on very reasonably and logically, approaching our Black Life as it is and condemning those who is responsible for our sojourn to america against our will.

STAGE 1

Damage Assement:

This stage should be the last stage of our envolvement because in my opinion it will be the clearest and obvious of all that is pertaining to Reparation and such should not be addressed until the demand for Reparation has been realized, ( agreed upon by the oppressors of our Enslaved Ancestors ) As I often say and I remain firm on this saying, Reparation is about the Enslavement of our Enslaved Ancestors and not their children, we just happen to inherit the Right to demand a Just pay for work all ready performed forcefully, which brought about the preservation of the nation we now call america.

We do not need a rocket scientist to calculate the damages incurred from such an evil and devilish institution call Chattel Slavery, just a good sociologist, psychologist, historian and a mathematician..

STAGE 2

Acceptance Of Responsibility:

Listen my beloved, why is it we are so hung up with the attitude and behavior of those who has a history of disrespecting and oppressing Black Afrikans and in this instant we speak of our Enslaved Ancestors.

Is it not a fact that money disputes are settled every day by this evil being calling himself the white man, without his accepting responsibility for his action.

I can care less what they think about what they did to my Enslaved Ancestors as long as they acknowledge their wrong through the payment of our Enslaved Ancestors Reparation, and that will come based on a unified demand coming from the Children Of Our Enslaved Ancestors, which require a Spiritual understanding of such a statement.

Expression Of Regret:

If we are waiting for Lucifer to repent for what he worship, which is evil, we will be liking to those who are waiting for Jesus to come to this planet to take them to glory land, wherever that is in the sky .

I know there are some of us who feel that the success of our Enslaved Ancestors Reparation being received by us,their children, is depended on the behavior and attitude of the perpretrators of the crime of Chattel Slavery.

I say the success of Reparation coming to our Enslaved Ancestors is depended upon the attitude and behavior of the Children of our Enslaved Ancestors.

I waste not a nano second waiting on this devil to show regret for the evil performed against our Enslaved Ancestors, because when it come to the Carbon Afrikan Nation these people have displayed a nature of evil and disrespect toward this Black Family upon this planet.

All of our Time must be used to educate and organize the Children of our Enslaved Ancestors, preparing us for that great battle of Armageddon, which will be Spiritual and if need be physical as well.

For us to look at Reparation from totally a physical perspective of expectation, would cause the children to do as we are doing now, full of pessimism whenever we hear about the issue of Reparation and that is because we have invested all of the power of consent to the criminal who did commit the crime, therefore we assign the power of acknowledgement and approval into the hand of the very one who show no ability to have compassion to the point of repentance for the evil done to our Enslaved Ancestors, yet we are willing to spend valuable Time in hope that this devil of a Being WILL OFFER AN EXPRESSION OF REGRET?

With such a mind set, Reparation has fail before it began.


STAGE 4

Reparation / Compensation:

Now here is the stage that have us all confused, well most of us,because there are those who are spitting the venom about Reparation being for the Children of our Enslaved Ancestors to use as we see fit, knowing that most of us can not see fit beyond the boarders of america and therefore we operate under the illusion that our major problem is capital ( money ) and if we are able to get our hand on our Enslaved Ancestors money, how much more americanized we can become.

There are those so call leaders who fan the lie implying that all of our efforts should be spent in making our community better and all we need is the opportunity of becoming of such an appreciatable economic status in america, whereby we can develop our communities economically, nothing is wrong with that, but when we think that all of our trouble in america Racist Prejudice and discriminatory society will be over and her evil action will be over against Black Folks and we all can just get along holding hands in harmony forever, such is proof that we have lost touch with reality.

How foolish have we become if we buy into such propaganda.

Black Woman and Man, we Black Folks in america do not have authority nor power over anything in america,not even our lives, therefore we do not control anything, again, not even our lives, therefore everything we get, everything we have, must first be approved by a being who has proven that they have no respect for our Black Life and the moment we step out of the circle of conformity we become label as radical extremist, which make us to be candidates for all of the injustice they can express toward us with our children taking the brunt of this devil injustice.

As one famous actor said, You Want The Truth, You My Beloved Can Not Handle The Truth, about our condition and status we occupy in america, we rather fantasize about our condition, rather than acknowledge what it is, in america.

Reparation is about Return, repair and Restoration,because it is about our Enslaved Afrikan Ancestors and when one work one expect a fair wage for the work performed, the same is due to our Enslaved Ancestors.

Reparation is about Money for the reconstruction of our Black lives, which nave been destroyed, and such must come through them, our Enslaved Ancestors, Now, but such is not to take place in an environment we did not create, but have became victims of.

Reparation is about Repatriation back to our Enslaved Ancestors Home, which make it to be our Home and that is Afrika and there, we are obligated to make our Enslaved Ancestors desire and wish come True, by becoming the next additional State, sovereign and independent it will be, and with the consent and blessing of our Afrikan Sisters and Brothers at Home.

I can hear some say now,well that has already been done, by referring to Liberia and I say study the the origin of Liberia and you will know who instigated and enabled it to become and then you will know why she experience the trouble that she does and no where is Reparation involved with Liberia becoming, as it is, just white folks and when it come to the Black Afrikan, that always spell trouble for the Afrikan.


STAGE 5

Reconciliation Or Separation:

What is it about Black Folks who have been the victim of a crime and the first to want to reconcile with the criminal as if being wrong for being the victim. Seem to me whenever an act of Reconciliation is in order it must come from the criminal who committed the crime and not the victim.

Sometime a crime can become so heinous to the point there is no desire to accept an act of recociliation from the criminal because the pattern of behavior coming from the criminal clearly states the criminal is not to be trusted, because they are a liar, thief and a murderer by habit, when it come to the Carbon Afrikan Family.

Yet we have chosen to ignore the teachings of our Ancestors when they say, experience is our best teacher and all we have ever experience from this criminal of a white man is grief, abuse, lying and murder.

If this is whom you want to reconcile with, because his religion teach you to do so, then the Carbon Afrika Nation may as well tighten our Belt of oppression and settle back to receive a continue oppressing and depressing Life.

We must heed the call of our Ancient Ancestors when they called upon us to come out from among them who have given us nothing but pain and sorrow, yes be ye separated from them and get about the business of resurrecting the Carbon Afrikan Nation and by doing so you will become qualified in bringing order back to the world, we must become that guiding Star that shined out of the East once again.

Conclusion:

Reparation is Sacred and Divine and we must approach it as such. We must come to realize that Reparation is not a by -product to out Liberation, Reparation is our Liberation because it will serve as that magnet that will bring the Children of our Enslaved Ancestors together, not just in america but the Diaspora as well, with us rising with one voice of demand in behalf of our Enslaved Ancestors,REPARATION, Not a Begging Word of Demand But A word That carry Justice and Liberation From america, for Our Enslaved Ancestors and their Children, Where ? Back Home In Afrika!!!

It Is Time To Condemn The Lie And Elevate The Truth!!!

We Must Cause Trouble ( with the truth ) Until Our Liberation!!!

The World Bank and IMF Policies Promote Disease and Destabilization



"The World Bank policies that are most harmful promote the privatization of water utilities, which creates lucrative new business opportunities for major global water corporations, and "full cost recovery," which refers to the collection of fees from consumers for the full cost of the operation and maintenance of water utility services.These are part of the World Bank's standard policy that promotes privatization, deregulation, trade liberalization and fiscal austerity. It was largely instituted in the past 20 years when the promotion of privatization mirrored the global trend toward more market-oriented economic policies. But critics say this market-oriented slant benefits major corporations such as French-owned water giants Vivendi Universal and Suez, and furthers inequality in the developing world. Indeed, prior to the 1980s, World Bank economists and development experts maintained that investment in public water utilities would trigger a development "take off." However, the scale shifted when investors began to realize the potential profit from privatizing an increasingly scarce natural resource.The World Bank now claims that the private sector, rather than publicly owned water utilities, is best able to provide the financial resources and expertise needed to address the growing problems in water service management. Yet private sector companies are organized to make a profit, not to fulfill socially responsible objectives such as achieving universal access to water and sanitation services. In many developing countries, where most citizens earn less than $2 a day, private sector companies are unable to meet shareholder obligations to provide a market rate of return and also implement universal coverage with acceptable quality and at affordable prices. Water rates soar and large sectors of the low-income population remain unserved."-Public Citizen Report

"The World Bank says that 'one way or another, water will soon be moved around the world as oil is now.'" - Maude Barlow Toronto Star 03-11-03


Five hundred years ago Europeans sailed around the world, bum rushing the native inhabitants, tricking them into exchanging their lands, natural and human resources for worthless trinkets, outmoded arms and the European's pathological predilection for war, rapine plunder and pillage. This predatory trade arrangement set the stage for a major cultural economic and socio-ecological reversal; higher living standards for Europeans, transfer of wealth and wholesale degradation and exploitation of the natives. The Europeans lacked the fire and manpower to totally bum rush the people at first so they cunningly concealed their true intent, but not for long. The European cultural milieu of incessant war, social cannibalism and predation inevitably reveals itself whenever and wherever the white man sets foot on planet earth. Using war genocide, the politics of rape, racial miscegenation and color cast to secure a socio-political environment favorable to Europeans, the whites then set out to institutionalize their imperial enterprises. Incessant rivalries and wars sparked by their psychopathy decimated both the European population and the ranks of the indigenous peoples; those who aggressively resisted the encroachment of the aliens and those who unwisely attempted to live in peace with the pale faces. The Europeans disrupted the social and ecological order everywhere they went superimposing their culture of domination, exploitation and xenophobia on native peoples. The propaganda of World War II used to justify yet another war invigorated liberation movements all over the globe and the whites were forced to alter their stance from crass imperialism to a seemingly softer and benign form called neocolonialism. Post WW III neocolonialism has since morphed into a more cunning form of domination were international bankers rather than colonial rulers set the tone and tenor for the way things work. Instead of colonial administrators, missionaries and soldiers the IMF, World Bank USAID (the latest incarnation of the tradi!
ng monop
olies of the 15, 16 and 17th centuries ) now dictate the imperial agendas backed by the armies, lethal technology and mercenaries all under control of a small cabal of multi-national capitalists.

Instead of "gunboat diplomacy" the imperialists now use economic strangulation. The IMF and World Bank place exorbitant demands on underdeveloped nations struggling to reverse the lingering inequities and grinding burdens of the colonial era. Even the few honest leaders not on the CIA, MI-6 or Mossad payroll are forced to make choices between pursuing much needed land redistribution and reform, expanding their economies, raising wages, building an infrastructure conducive to commerce and travel, educating their people and defending themselves against further neocolonialism. The IMF and World Bank are now pushing privatization of basic services such as drinking water and utilities. Developing countries need loans and credit but the IMF and World Bank hold them hostage demanding they purchase weapons with money that should go for roads, schools hospitals and social programs. The IMF and World Bank determine economic and social priorities of the countries they loan money to. it would be like you going to a bank for a loan and the bank dictating how you live every facet of your life as a condition of getting the money. IMF and World Bank policies demand third world countries privatize their water and power services which results in onerous conditions. Log onto to glean how the multi-nationals, the IMF and World Bank collude to exploit third world countries and create dangerous health conditions. Third world nations are experiencing a rise in diseases like cholera and other water bourn conditions, because people who cannot afford the cost of water imposed by the privatized companies use untreated water and often infected water from local streams, creeks, ponds and rivers. In addition to the millions the multi-national water companies will rake in by controlling their monopolies on water they are also given huge tax breaks, licensing fee concessions and perks due to arm twisting by the IMF World Bank on the leaders of these cash strapped underdeveloped or "developing" countries. If this seems like only a probl!
em for t
hird world countries let me recall to your attention a similar situation; Enron and the power companies manipulating billing costs and production which led to power outages in California and artificially induced price increases. The same mentality that produced phony power shortages in the US is causing disease and destabilization all over the world, in Latin America in Chile and Brazil, Mexico in African in Ghana, South Africa and Zimbabwe. The transnational corporations, the capitalist elites, the IMF and World Bank are plotting to control all the world's resources, recently most of the focus has been on oil, as we move further into this century look for more emphasis to shift to water.

 

 

 

POSITIVELY BLACK

Junious Ricardo Stanton

The Real Deal in Sudan

"Sudan has an estimated $45-billion (U.S.) in oil reserves. The international consortium of companies developing the fields has plowed more than $4-billion (U.S.) into what they hope will be Africa's newest oil boom. The oil fields are situated on the very front line of Africa's longest-running civil war, in which the ruling National Islamic Front is pitted against the rebels of the South, chiefly the Sudan People's Liberation Army. In 1983, when the northern government tried to impose Islamic law on the south, war broke out. An estimated two million Christians and Muslims have been displaced by the war. The rebels say the NIF regime aims to Islamize and Arabize the animist and Christian black Africans of South Sudan, or exterminate them. They say they're fighting for their very survival. The extent of the terror unleashed here is chilling. There had recently been an airdrop of food by the United Nations World Food Program. But the Antonov bombers came hot on the tail of the UN aid, and dropped bombs on the starving people as they tried to get to the food."- Damien Lewis Toronto Globe and Mail

While we are bombarded with photos of suffering war ravaged Africans from Southern Sudan, the US is talking about taking an active role in intervening, the AmeriKKKan mind control apparatus is really attempting to make the masses believe George W Bush, Colin Powell et al are concerned about the mounting loss of life in the region, not so. Behind the veneer of casting AmeriKKKa's intervention in humanitarian terms lies the real deal; oil, black gold, crude. What do white folks care about Africans being slaughtered by Arabs? This had been going on for over thirteen hundred years! Wake up, the same psychopathology that unleashed AIDS in Africa to wipe out our people is at work conniving to trick the masses into thinking they care about the lives being snuffed out in Sudan. Bush and Co. came into office with an agenda to bum rush the world's natural resources primarily oil and gas. Through the IMF World Bank USAID and "globalization" they plan to own outright, directly control militarily or politically through surrogates all the world's land labor and resources. Arabs swept through Africa from Arabia Bogarting African people and their lands and proselytizing their religion since 684 A.D. Read Chancellor Williams' The Destruction of Black Civilization or Islam's Black Slaves by Ronald Segal to glean just how extensive and brutal the conquest of Africa by Arabs has been. I have seen first hand how Arab hegemony impacts African life, in Nubia. The Nubian's despite being forced to accept Islam and learn Arabic still cling to their indigenous tongue as a way of resisting their total domination. The current unrest and conflict in the Sudan has been going on for over fifty years. Into this Arab- African power struggle stepped the multinational oil and gas consortium's looking to get their next fix for their insatiable petroleum and energy addiction. The Europeans could care less about our people. They are in the Sudan to expropriate the oil and natural gas; but as usual they must disguise their true motives.

A recent Amnesty International report concluded, "Oil is also a symbol of the Sudanese problem: Sudan's recent history of decolonization, failed nation-building and its continuing political affairs are reflected in the story of oil. Economic factors, such as oil exploration and extraction, show not only that considerations of the global economy dominate political decision-making but also clearly indicate the underlying sources of the conflict in Sudan.Amnesty International is publishing this report in an effort to make clear the link between the massive human rights violations by the security forces of the Government of Sudan and various government allied militias, and the oil operations by foreign companies. The pattern of human rights violations includes atrocities and the forcible internal displacement of large populations of local people. These violations by government security forces and armed opposition groups are directed at the population living in oil fields and surrounding areas, and is an effort to control, protect or destroy the oil production capacity. Foreign companies are involved in this lucrative oil production, and they expect the Sudanese government to provide a secure environment, which includes the use of security forces to protect oil company staff and assets. Thus, Amnesty International believes many foreign companies tolerate violations by turning a blind eye to the human rights violations committed by the government security forces or government-allied troops in the name of protecting the security of the oil-producing areas. Some companies allegedly have employed private military and security companies, or have utilized security forces that have conscripted child soldiers."- Amnesty International Winning Oil Losing People. This situation is right up the "divide and conquer, destabilize and rule" agenda of the Europeans. This way they kill three birds with one stone. They further demonize the Arab leaders namely the government of Omar Hassan al-Bashir and include them as fodder fo!
r their
ongoing war against Islam, they get to control vast stretches of land containing oil and natural gas and lastly by supplying arms, instigating war and causing massive social disruption they depopulate yet another African nation. The AI report also stated "The pursuit of control over the oil territory provides a powerful incentive for assembling forces based on ethnic origin. For the Government of Sudan it therefore becomes easier to identify ambitious and power-hungry rebel commanders and supply them with weapons to defend the oil areas against their former allies in the SPLA. In turn, the SPLA and its allies are increasingly recruiting their fighters from specific ethnic backgrounds.
The fighting between the southern rebel militias intensified after a number of former SPLA commanders signed a peace agreement with the Government of Sudan in 1997. The government's divide and rule strategy ultimately led to the devastating human rights violations currently faced by the people in the oil-rich state of Western Upper Nile." So we can see what is really at stake here from a European perspective, oil. But you won't hear or see this in the corporate owned mass media/mind control apparatus. Don't fall for their okey-doke Washington's concern is not about humanitarian aid, it is about oil. From now on when you see or hear about any conflict or turmoil anywhere in the world; investigate it thoroughly, more than likely you will discover the Europeans' g.o.d. (gold oil or drugs) is lurking somewhere in the vicinity.


 

 

 

Terrorism and the Election: California is the Target!

No postponement, just bedlam at the polls and a low turnout on the west coast is Bush's plan for 'victory'

by Wayne Madsen




You have to give the right-wingers credit. The fear tactics they learned from arch-Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels remain at the front of their political playbook. First, they put out the notion that in the event of a terrorist attack around the time of the November 2 election, a postponement of the vote may be necessary. Second, they start talking about the Federal government's response to such a scenario. It's the second item we must all be focused upon.


The idea of terrorism affecting the election was first proffered by Reverend DeForest B. Soaries Jr, the Bush-appointed chairman of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission. Soaries is a right-wing New Jersey Republican Secretary of State who has been living under the small "fanatics only" revival tent of the Christian fundamentalist crowd for some time. Soaries's job is to ensure that there is no repeat of the 2000 Florida fiasco. However, he and his friends in the Bush administration (read that as Karl Rove and Tom DeLay primarily) may have their eyes set on causing a major West coast electoral disruption in 2004 that will make Florida 2000 look like a minor glitch by comparison.


As expected, suspecting a Bush conspiracy to cancel the election and remain in power until a determination would be made by Homeland Fuhrer Tom Ridge that an election was safe, the moderate, liberal, progressive, and libertarian communities cried foul. Postponing an election without a constitutional amendment would be a major breach of the Constitution (not that Bush has ever worried about his constitutional oath) and that would be impossible with only a little over three months before Election Day. Those who respect our Constitution pointed to the fact that President Abraham Lincoln did not cancel the 1864 presidential election during the Civil War - a war which saw this nation more at danger than it is during the current cable news bite-driven and somewhat sensationalist "Global War on Terrorism."


The right wing had a different take on the possibility of an election postponement. Neo-fascist babble mongers like Rush Limbaugh said, "No!" to a postponement of the election. They argued that if a terrorist alert or attack were to occur, the election should go on and only those votes cast should be counted. Bingo! The plan for a second Bush administration became clear as day. And that plan's target is California, with its whopping 54 electoral votes, and possibly Washington State's 11 electoral votes, at stake.


In 2000, Bush and the election fraud cabal that included his brother, Florida Governor "Jebbie" Bush, and Jebbie's old flame, Florida Secretary of State (now Congresswoman) Katherine Harris and Fox News election analyst John Ellis (Bush's first cousin), engineered Bush's phony Florida "win" using a combination of scrubbed electoral rolls that disenfranchised almost 100,000 African-Americans, confusing "butterfly ballots," an early Fox projected Bush "win" in the Sunshine State, and voter intimidation at mainly rural polling places. As with Osama bin Laden and his band of zealots, the Bush team never uses the same tactic twice. Therefore, all eyes should shift from Florida this Election Day, to California, where one of Bush's new minions, the Nazi-admiring Arnold Schwarzenegger, engineered a gubernatorial coup d'etat with the help of Enron's Ken Lay and his Texas oil cronies, to seize control of the governorship from the reelected Democrat Gray Davis.


Clues to Republican motives are found back during that awful day in 2001. On September 11, the day of the terrorist attacks, New Yorkers were heading to the polls to vote in their mayoral primary. Under the direction of the outgoing incumbent mayor, Rudolph Giuliani, city election officials quickly postponed the election. Giuliani, one who never misses an opportunity to emulate the former Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, toyed with the idea of amending New York City's term limits law so that he could run for mayor for a third consecutive term. Another Giuliani plan would have postponed the primary and regular mayoral election for one year, giving him at least one more year in office with the possibility of a change in the city law to allow him to run for a third term. Another plan would have made Giuliani a write-in candidate. Wary of Giuliani's various proposed election contrivances and his intention to use the attack on the World Trade Center for his own political advantage, New York's City Council and the New York State Legislature quickly put the kibosh to Giuliani postponing the election indefinitely, extending his term for one year, or amending the city's term limit statute. The mayoral primary took place on September 25, two weeks after the terrorist attack, and the general election occurred on schedule on November 6. Michael Bloomberg was sworn in as the new mayor on January 1, 2002.


After having Tom Ridge drop the media bomb that an election cancellation was a possibility and then having National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice declare that no such plan existed, the cat was out of the bag. No, do not expect an election cancellation but be prepared for a terrorist "event" during the election. That is what the Bush White House and their media prostitutes are spinning.


Here's the scenario we must be all be prepared for:


If the pre-election internal tracking polls and public opinion polls show the Kerry-Edwards ticket leading in key battleground states, the Bush team will begin to implement their plan to announce an imminent terrorist alert for the West Coast for November 2 sometime during the mid afternoon Pacific Standard Time. At 2:00 PST, the polls in Kentucky and Indiana will be one hour from closing (5:00 PM EST - the polls close in Indiana and Kentucky at 6:00 PM EST). Exit polls in both states will be known to the Bush people by that time and if Kentucky (not likely Indiana) looks too close to call or leaning to Kerry-Edwards, the California plan will be implemented. A Bush problem in Kentucky at 6:00 PM EST would mean that problems could be expected in neighboring states and that plans to declare a state of emergency in California would begin in earnest at 3:00 PM PST.


The U.S. Northern Command, which has military jurisdiction over the United States, will, along with the Department of Homeland Security and Schwarzenegger's police and homeland security officials in Sacramento, declare an "imminent" terrorist threat - a RED ALERT -- affecting California's major urban areas.


Although the polls in California will not be closed as a result of the declaration, the panic that sets in and the early rush hour will clog major traffic arteries and change the plans of many voters to cast their ballot after work.


That terrorist emergency declaration could be made around 5:00 PM PST and with only three hours left for voting throughout the state, a number of working class voters in urban centers will either be caught up in California's infamous freeway traffic and be too late to get to their polling places or be more concerned about their families and avoid voting altogether.


Without a doubt, many Democratic voters might simply opt to pick their kids up from day care centers or relatives and then go home without voting. These would tend to be the lower and middle income Californians and the Democratic base. The affluent voters in California who vote Republicans and can easily vote early (and be late for work) or have the option of leaving work at any time during the day to vote will have likely already cast their ballots. Therefore, the recipe of a White House-induced California terrorist alert and a low Democratic turnout could toss 54 electoral votes into Bush's lap, especially if the scare tactics affect the turnout in such urban and typically pro-Democratic vote-rich areas as Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Sacramento.


At 7:00 PM EST (4:00 PM PST), the polls will close in Florida, Georgia, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Vermont, and Virginia. A half hour later, they close in North Carolina, Ohio, and West Virginia. If Kerry-Edwards wins Florida and that is coupled with similar pickups in Ohio, West Virginia and too-close-to-call races in Virginia and maybe North Carolina, the Bush team may seek to extend the terror alert to other Western or even Midwestern states, particularly Washington State (since Oregon votes by mail, it would be largely immune from any polling manipulation on Election Day). A terrorist alert for the Seattle area after 5:00 PM PST would result in a similar situation to that of California's, with the exception that many potential voters could be trapped on Seattle's commuter ferries. Washington's polls close at 8:00 PM PST (11:PM EST). A low Democratic turnout in the vote-rich Seattle-Tacoma-Bremerton area could be offset by a large Republican turnout in eastern Washington, thus possibly throwing the state's 11 electoral votes to Bush - a net pick up 65 electoral votes from the West Coast, adding those votes to California's. If Kerry picks up Ohio and some border states, the Bush team will be looking for a West Coast electoral offset and a terrorist alert would be the key to replacing lost Bush electoral votes in Ohio (21 votes), Florida (25), and West Virginia (5), a total of 51 electoral votes for Kerry.


With the stage set for a terrorist alert on the West Coast and with the polls closing at 8 PM EST (5:00 PM PST and launch time for the terrorist alert) in Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, DC, Illinois, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Texas, we might be looking at the following electoral vote tally:


Kerry:

Florida (25); New Hampshire (4); Vermont (3); Ohio (21); West Virginia (5); Connecticut (8); Delaware (3); DC (3); Illinois (22); Maine (4); Maryland (10); Massachusetts (12); Michigan (18); New Jersey (15); Pennsylvania (23). Total: 176 (needed to win: 270).


Bush:

Indiana (12); Kentucky (8); Georgia (13); South Carolina (8); Virginia (13); North Carolina (14); Alabama (9); Kansas (6); Mississippi (7); Missouri (11); Oklahoma (8); Tennessee (11); Texas (32). Total: 152 (needed to win: 270).


At 8:30 PM EST (and a half hour into the West Coast terror alert), the polls close in Arkansas and its 6 electoral votes are added to Bush's column, giving him 158 to Kerry's 176.


At 9:00 PM EST, the polls close in Arizona, Colorado, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. With Kerry picking up Louisiana (9 votes), Minnesota (10), New Mexico (5), New York (33), Rhode Island (4), and Wisconsin (11), his vote total would stand at 248.


With Bush picking up Arizona (8), Colorado (8), Nebraska (5), North Dakota (3), South Dakota (3), and Wyoming (3), his vote count would stand at 188.


At 10:00 PM EST, the polls will close in mainly Bush states. With Bush picking up Idaho (4 votes); Montana (3); Nevada (4); and Utah (5) and with Kerry likely grabbing Iowa (7), the vote count would stand at: Kerry: 255 and Bush: 204.


With an hour to go before polls close on the West Coast and the region enmeshed in a major terrorist alert with cops and National Guardsmen now adding to the mix and possibly closing roads and delaying traffic to the polling places, Bush's team in Washington and Sacramento would be poised to deliver the death blow to Kerry-Edwards.


At 11:00 PM EST and 8:00 PM PST, the polls close in California, Oregon, and Washington. The fix is in: with California (the mother lode of 54 votes) and Washington (11 votes) going to Bush and Oregon (7 votes) possibly going to Kerry, the vote count stands at: Kerry: 262 and Bush: 269. Sometime in the wee hours of the morning of November 3, Alaska (3 votes) is declared for Bush and he is declared the winner with 272 votes to Kerry's 266 (with Kerry's pickup of Hawaii's 4 electoral votes). It's a down-to-the wire race with Bush being declared a winner without a Supreme Court fight but using his "homeland security" powers to ensure his re-election and Alaska putting him over the top.


That is what all this talk about a terrorist attack on Election Day is about. It is to prime the population and allow Bush surrogates at Fox News, CNN, and MS-NBC to begin their perception management campaign that an attack will occur around the election. But there will be no postponement of the election or cancellation - this is simply another plan to manipulate the public through the use of phony threats and fear tactics. The problem is that it just might work for Bush and his cabal of "the ends justify the means" manipulators.


This article is a wakeup call to all those who can try to forestall such a series of events. California's Democratic majority in the state legislature and its Democratic Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General must take steps now to ensure Schwarzenegger does not conspire with his fellow Republicans in Washington to do to California in 2004 what Jebbie Bush and his people did to Florida in 2000. Similarly, Washington's Democratic Governor Gary Locke and all the Democratic officials, including the two Democratic U.S. Senators, must take similar action to avoid a similar scenario in their state.


Action needed now includes:


1.Informing all state election officials about such a scenario and its potential impact on voter turnout.
2. Making contingency plans now to keep the polling places open to ensure that people can vote later or after any state of emergency is lifted.
3. Prevent the National Guard from being used to facilitate such a state of emergency.
4. Close coordination by the Democratic Party, smaller parties, and minority and labor rights organizations to respond to such a scenario.


To paraphrase James Carville, "It's California and the voter turnout, stupid!" Forget about canceling or postponing the election. Keep your eye on a "Red Terrorist Alert" on the West Coast for Election Day. That doesn't take a constitutional amendment, merely an okay from Bush and his homeland security team. They must be stopped - the future of this nation is at stake!

OPINIONS
Only the truth shall set Blacks free

by ALTON H. MADDOX JR.


Special to the AmNews
Originally posted 8/4/2004

I had no doubt that Rev. Al Sharpton would steal the dog-and-pony show
masquerading as a political convention in Boston for the Democratic Party.
In such a spectacle, speakers are licensed to spew historical fallacies and
legal fictions. Sharpton put the pedal to the metal and went for everything
he did not know.
His speech was fictional and, like a used car salesman, he sold a lemon to
every gullible soul in the Fleet Center. Afterwards, the white media and
even his perceived political nemesis, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, gave him rave
reviews. This is not surprising. Sharpton rewrote Black history like
Leonardo da Vinci redrew the image of Jesus.

Aside from his fallacy that Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves, Sharpton added
white Democrats like Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy,
Lyndon B. Johnson and William J. Clinton to his list of freedom fighters for
civil rights. The historical record, however, tells a different story.

From Rosa Parks to Fannie Lou Hamer, Blacks struggled mightily against
Democratic governors, including George Wallace, Ross Barnett, Lester Maddox,
Orval Faubus and George B. Timmerman Jr. Similarly, Birmingham Police
Commissioner Bull Connor was Alabama's Democratic National Committeeman, and
Sheriff Jim Clark of Selma was a Democratic honcho.

The bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church, killing four little Black
girls, was on Connor's watch, as was his use of hungry and vicious canines
to torture Blacks exercising First Amendment rights. Clark and his posse
assaulted Black protesters seeking the right to vote at the Edmund Pettus
Bridge in Selma on "Bloody Sunday." These racists were hardly in the mood
for Blacks to be riding on a Democratic donkey.

In Congress, racist Democrats like James O. Eastland, Strom Thurmond, Sam
Ervin and Richard Russell used their political clout to thwart civil rights.
Ninety Southern Democrats signed a Southern Manifesto in 1956 declaring
segregation for now and segregation forever.

They not only opposed Brown v. Board of Education but also President Dwight
Eisenhower's proposal to create a bipartisan Civil Rights Commission and a
Civil Rights Division in the Justice Department. The Justice Department
itself was not established until Reconstruction.

Before 1968, most Southern politicians, by a wide margin, were Democrats.
They chaired nearly two-thirds of all Senate committees. After the Civil
War, Democrats promoted terrorism and practiced race-baiting in the South.
Democrats have sponsored a reign of terror against Blacks for more than a
century.
Republicans and Democrats alike conspired to undo the Reconstruction
Amendments as part of the Hayes-Tilden Compromise. The Republican Supreme
Court, in 1883, would also invalidate the Civil Rights Act of 1875, which
provided greater protections for Blacks than the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Northern Democrats started wooing Blacks in the 1880s. Northern Blacks
started to embrace the courtship because of the 1877 presidential sell-out
and because the Republican Party started to take Blacks for granted, such is
occurring today with the Democratic Party. The exodus was unrelated to
reparations.
Sharpton should be the last person to toot the Democratic horn. If I had
gone AWOL in 1989, like every other Black person on the face of the Earth,
Sharpton would still be doing push-ups in prison rather than delivering a
prime time speech in Boston.

Two Democrats, former Governor Mario Cuomo and his state attorney general,
Robert Abrams, crafted a 70-count noose for his neck. It took not only legal
skills but also personal sacrifice to save him. According to a saying, "The
red man never forgets his enemies and the white man never forgets his
friends. The Negro forgets both."

Every prominent Black is hobnobbing with whites because someone was
permanently scarred. These sacrifices were not made so that a prominent
Black can elevate racism and white supremacy over Black struggle. His speech
was a slap in the face to our ancestors. This is a danger of free riding.

In my case, I am on the verge of becoming homeless with no relief in sight.
Hamer was savagely beaten. Harry T. Moore and his wife, Harriet, were blown
to bits while they slept. Malcolm X and Dr. Martin L. King Jr. were
assassinated. The list is endless.

Sharpton's primetime speech was academic. It was as relevant for Blacks in
2004 as the Emancipation Proclamation was relevant to enslaved Africans in
1863. If Sharpton had been concerned about the plight of Blacks, he should
have used his political campaign to secure a Black plank.

The national platform, devoid of a Black plank, had already been signed,
sealed and delivered by July 28, the date of Sharpton's speech. Now, the
Democratic Party needs Black hustlers to sell the Brooklyn Bridge to the
Black community. In 2005, Blacks will not be singing "Happy Days Are Here
Again."


Senator Charles Sumner of Massachusetts, who authored the Civil Rights Act
of 1875, advised Blacks, in 1872, to refrain from identifying with either
Republicans or Democrats. Blacks should employ their swing vote to extract
political spoils from the highest bidder.

Sharpton's political naïveté was revealed when he firmly asserted, "Our vote
is not for sale." Blacks should now know why there will be no chickens in
their pots and no cars in their garages in 2005. To be sure, politics, like
the law of contracts, is based on a quid pro quo.

Sharpton's speech should have focused on Black disfranchisement and voter
fraud. President-select George Bush intends to steal the election again to
complete his "New World Order" mission. The Black vote will not count. By
2007, Black disfranchisement will be complete through sundry political
maneuvers.

Since disfranchisement is on the political horizon, Malcolm gave Sharpton
this prescription: "It's got to be the ballot or the bullet. The ballot or
the bullet. If you're afraid to use an expression like that, you should get
out of the country, you should go back in the cotton patch, you should get
back in the alley."
 

History Lesson For us All!!

Some Black History to celebrate the little things we take for
granted...



FED UP WITH BLACK PEOPLE?

A very humorous and revealing story is told about a group of white
people
who were fed up with African Americans, so they joined together and
wished
themselves away.  They passed through a deep dark tunnel and emerged in
sort of a twilight zone where there is an America without black people.
At
first these white people breathe a sigh of relief.  At last, they said,
No
more
crime, drugs, violence and welfare.  All of the blacks have gone!

Then suddenly, reality set in. The "NEW AMERICA" is not America at
all-only a barren land.

1. There are very few crops that have flourished because the nation was
built on a slave-supported system.

2. There are no cities with tall skyscrapers because Alexander Mils, a
black man, invented the elevator, and without it one finds great
difficulty
reaching higher floors.


3. There are few if any cars because Richard Spikes, a black man,
invented
the automatic gear shift, Joseph Gambol, also black, invented the Super
Charge System for Internal Combustion Engines, and Garrett A. Morgan, a
black man, invented the traffic signals.

4. Furthermore, one could not use the rapid transit system because it's
procurer was the electric trolley, which was invented by another black
man, Albert R. Robinson.

5. Even if there were streets on which cars and a rapid transit system
could operate, they were cluttered with paper because an African
American,
Charles Brooks, invented the street sweeper.

6. There were few if any newspapers, magazines and books because John
Love
invented the pencil sharpener, William Purveys invented the fountain
pen,
Lee Barrage invented the Type Writing Machine and W. A. Love invented
the
Advanced Printing Press. They were all, you guessed it, Black.

7. Even if Americans could write their letters, articles and books,
they

would not have been transported by mail because William Barry invented
the
Postmarking and Canceling Machine, William Purveys invented the Hand
Stamp
and Philip Downing invented the Letter Drop.

8. The lawns were brown and wilted because Joseph Smith invented the
Lawn
Sprinkler and John Burr the Lawn Mower.

9. When they entered their homes, they found them to be poorly
ventilated
and poorly heated. You see, Frederick Jones invented the Air
Conditioner
and Alice Parker the Heating Furnace. Their homes were also dim. But of
course, Lewis Later invented the Electric Lamp, Michael Harvey invented
the
lantern and Granville T. Woods invented the Automatic Cut off Switch.
Their
homes were also filthy because Thomas W. Steward invented the Mop &
Lloyd
P. Ray
the Dust Pan.

10. Their children met them at the door-barefooted, shabby, motley and
unkempt. But what could one expect? Jan E. Matzelinger invented the
Shoe
Lasting Machine, Walter Sammons invented the Comb, Sarah Boone invented
the Ironing Board and George T. Samon invented the Clothes Dryer.

11. Finally, they were resigned to at least have dinner amidst all of
this
turmoil. But here again, the food had spoiled because another Black
Man,
John Standard invented the refrigerator.

Now, isn't that something? What would this Country be like without the
contributions of Blacks, as African-Americans?

Martin Luther King, Jr., "by the time we leave for work, Americans have
depended on the inventions from the minds of Blacks."

Black history includes more than just slavery, Frederick Douglas,
Martin
Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey & W.E.B. DuBois.

PLEASE SHARE, ABUNDANTLY!

Always remember the African Proverb: Knowledge is like a garden: if it
is
not cultivated, it cannot be harvested. Peace and many blessings.

"WHO'S RUNNING OUR BRAINS?"


Start with a cage containing five monkeys.
Inside the cage , hang a banana on a string and place a set of stairs
under it.


Before long, a monkey will go to the stairs
and start to climb towards the banana.
As soon as he touches the stairs, spray all of the other monkeys with
cold water.
(TURN ON TV)

After awhile, another monkey makes an attempt with the same result - all
the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water.

Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new
monkey sees the banana and wants to climb the stairs. To his SURPRISE
and HORROR, all of the other monkeys ATTACK him. After another attempt
and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs, he will be
assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original monkeys and replace it with a NEW
ONE.
The new comer goes to the stairs and is attacked.  The previous newcomer
takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm!

Likewise, replace a third original monkey with a new one, then a fourth,
then the fifth. Everytime the newest monkey takes to the stairs (STARS)
he is attacked.
Most of the monkeys that are beating him
have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs (TO THE
STARS) or why they are participating in the beating of the newest
(AWAKENED) monkey.

After replacing all the original monkeys,
NONE of the REMAINING MONKEYS have ever been sprayed with cold water.

Nevertheless, no monkey ever again approaches the stairs (STARS) to try
for the banana. (TRUE FREEDOM)

WHY NOT? 

Because as far as they know, that's the way it has always been done!

Hoteph My Beloved Sisters And Brothers:

Three cheers for the victims of HIV / AIDS. THE TIME IS FAR PAST FOR THE
PEOPLE AND VICTIMS OF HIV / AIDS IN AFRICA TO RISE UP AND LET THEIR
DISSATISFACTION BE KNOWN AND HEARD !!!

It is a shame and a disgrace that the leaders Of Africa is keeping
information about DR. Graves away from the people and victims of Africa.

It equal to them committing murder  of  our brothers and sisters with the
HIV / AIDS VIRUS.

Regardless of what many of you might think of DR. Graves, none of you have
proved him wrong of his accusation that the devilish virus, HIV / AIDS is a
man made virus and the cure is laying around in some medical vault and you
foolishly accuse him of being a conspiracy nut, with your dying trust in
people who has a history of kicking us in the Axx.

What harm would it be if some one with a ounce of curiosity would just
invite DR. GRAVES TO Africa to reveal his finding and make his case to his
people about this devilish virus.

If you think DR. Graves is just a shenanigan then prove it. Invite him to
Africa and make a fool of him about his charge, if you dare and is
concerned about the Black African people, infected with this devilish
virus.

Yes, it is Time not only for the victims of this devilish virus to begin to
rebel, hell all of Africa should be in a rebellious mode about this
devilish virus and the way it is being talked to the death of  the Black
African people.

How foolishly in love with our enemy have we become, to the extent we
attack one of our own for making the claim that the HIV / AIDS VIRUS is
just another method  being used to carry out a well organized genocide plan
against Black and poor people in the world, as if such a claim is an unjust
one against a people who have demonstrated that they are capable and
qualified to carry out such a plan against Black people and not lose one
wink of sleep at night.

It is Time for the Black Nation to begin to purify the Black Nation and the
first place to begin is within the Black Nation.

The Death Of The Black African Nation shall not be bought but Healed

THE 5TH NUMBER IN YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY


IS THE 5TH NUMBER IN YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER ODD OR EVEN?

Have you heard anything about Social Security numbers, African
Americans and the 5th digit of your SSN? Supposedly, if you are an African
American or a minority, the 5th digit in your SSN is even and odd if you are
white!

It has been said if you take a poll, most African Americans will have an
even 5th digit. Rumor has it, some companies are looking at potential
employees SSN to discriminate. Why not send this email to every African
American and Minority that you know! I'm sending this to everyone I know.
Mine was even, what's yours?

--TAVIS SMILEY

 

yes it was built into the social security numbering system that the first three numbers represent the persons place of origin or birth and the next two numbers represent his/her race or ethnic identity
 
there is/was, even a chart made available, with which to decode SS numbers.
credit agencies, banks, pollsters, marketing agencies, the IRS and and the Census Bureau all routinely used this information to make decisions. i had a chart that decoded the place of origin some years ago. can't remember where i got it.


 

                                                                                             

WHILE THE UNITED NATIONS FEELS LEFT OUT OF IRAQ, WHERE IS THE UNITED
NATIONS WHEN ATROCITIES AND GENOCIDE IS PRESENTLY BEING COMMITTED
AGAINST BLACKS/AFRICANS IN SUDAN, MAURITANIA, LATIN AMERICA, RWANDA,
CONGO, WEST PAPUA OR BY THE SYSTEM OF HIGH-TECH SLAVERY AGAINST BLACKS
IN PLACES LIKE AUSTRALIA, NORTH AMERICA AND ENGLAND.


The United Nations is being criticized around the world, particularly by
the neo-fascist propaganda machine led by the troika of propagandists on
cable television networks that think they can out-fox the viewer ship, or
by the new junta of propagandists being paid by foreign interests in
places like the Middle East to spew the same old propaganda.  These
propagandists are now being severely criticized by those who have a
history of blaming the Semites for everything from the betrayal of
Christ to conspiring to control the world's money and resources.

Over the past twenty years, millions and millions of Africans/Pan-Negro
people have been slaughtered in places like Rwanda, Sudan, West Papua,
Latin America, West Africa. In other places, a more high-tech form of
genocide through the use of destroying the males by creating laws to
make them inefficient and unable to create families, work and maintain
their humanity has been used by nations from those of Europe, the
Americas, South Africa and Australia.  While these nations have not used
open warfare and massacres as nations and agents of Black destructions
have used in Melanesia, Africa, Latin America an South Asia, they have
used means that are sometimes more devastating.  For example, when
Australia has an Aboriginal population that is being destroyed by
alcohol and confinement, making up almost half of those confined (as is
the case in parts of the Americas and Latin America in the case of
Blacks), then anyone with any intelligence can see it is nothing but a
war of genocide being committed.  In other words, when Black males are
being deliberately and systematically destroyed in the regions mentioned
above, genocide is at play.  When wars are being promoted and provoked
in Africa and organizations like the United Nations and the African
Union do absolutely nothing about it, then eyebrows are raised around
the Black world, particularly when the African Union and the United
Nations, the European Union and others are so concerned with making sure
that the Middle East does not become the final battle ground for the
Armageddon that many haters of Jews (including some Fundamentalists) are
hoping for so they can bring about the conversion of the Jews and the
beginning of the 1000-year Christian Reich that some say will rule the
world before the coming of Christ.

AFRICANS WORLDWIDE MUST START UNITING TO HELP AFRICANS/BLACKS WORLDWIDE
PROGRESS

It is obvious that the United Nations does not care one bit about what
happens to Africans, otherwise, the slaughter of almost one million
people would not have taken place in Rwanda.  The genocide and racist
"Arabizatiion" program of the Semitic settlers in North Sudan and the
converts to Arabism who are Negroes themselves would not occur.  As the
growth and progress of the descendants of Sudanese/Ethiopian/Congolese
people in the Americas becomes widespread (about one quarter of all
Blacks in the Americas are of Angola-Sudanese-Ethiopian-Congolese
origins), people of African descent and of ancestors from the regions
above (about 100 million of the 300 million Blacks in the Americas from
Brazil to Canada), are going to make sure that policies and the agenda
of protecting and the re-Africanization and protection of the cultures,
rights and heritage of Africans are respected and that the imperialistic
and racist agenda of the Semites and religious imperialists is not
allowed to go on a spree of "Semitization" converting to Semite
religions and the continued genocide and enslavement of Africans in
places like Sudan and Mauritania.  Is this why many Blacks in the U.S.,
Brazil, Latin America and the Caribbean believe there  is hypocrisy
shown by the United Nations, the Europeans and others when they take
measures to stop the Arabs and Jews from destroying each other but allow
genocide of "Arab" Sudanese against the Black Cushite people who include
the Nubians, Nubas, Dinkas and other Africans.  These Arabs  are
actually Africans with a few drops of Semitic blood and are called "the
Arab North" by some are even more "Arab" than the white Semitic Arabs
who enslaved their ancestors and destroyed the Nubian-Cushite
civilization of Sudan.  Today, these "Arabs" of Northern Sudan, Negroes
believe they are Arabs and promote a racist policy against South
Sudanese, till they try to gain refugee status in Egypt and Syria and
are reminded that they are part of the Nubian-Cushite Black race,
Negroes and Africans and not white Semitic Arabs). In like manner,
neither Persians of Iran who follow the religion of the Arabs or the
Chinese of Western China who follow the same religion are Semitic Arabs.

Hence, the solution to the genocide that is occurring in Africa today is
for Africans to reclaim their true identigy as Black Africans, reclaim
their ancient cultures and religions, control their own resources, align
and form strong Pan-Africanist/Pan-Negro unions around the world, build
strong and unbeatable military and economic systems and take measures to
protect the Black peoples around the world.  After all, all other races
take steps to protect their own.  That is one of the main hidden issues
behind the fact that Khazar/Germanic converts to Judaism are so
staunchly protected by the Anglo-Germanic powers of this earth who will
do everything to prevent the Semitic Arabs and Jews from destroying each
other, yet will sit back and allow Negro "Arabists" to commit genocide
in Sudan and Mauritania, or Arabist Malays to commit genocide against
Black Melanesians in West Papua, or allow four million people to be
slaughtered in the mini-world war that occurred in Congo/Central Africa,
or the genocide in Sudan.

It is obvious, the rest of the world do not care one bit about what
happens to Blacks/Africans around the world.  Whose job is it to care
about Africans/Black people around the world?  Well it is the job of
Blacks and Africans to care about themselves. Yet, since a significant
amount of us are brainwashed and are being used by others, then perhaps
Blacks in the Americas must develop a regional system and form of Black
nationalism from Brazil to Canada.  That system must have the same type
of power that the Jews have for their people and interests or the
Anglo-Saxons of the U.S., England and Australia have for their people
and interests.

The 300 million people of African descent living in the Americas must
unite and have a common agenda because it appears Africans/Blacks in the
Old World are allowing themselves to be fragmented and destroyed by the
European and Arabist agenda as well as the age-old tribalism that keeps
the African/Black regions perpetually stagnant.

Blacks in the Americas must unite and examine how other organizations
and regional bodies operate.  The Organization of Africans in the
Americas is a good start and business at home must be taken care of
before outside issues.  However, like the Jews, Anglo-Saxons, Asians,
Arabs and Slavics, Blacks in the Americas who are a combination of all
the nations and tribes of Africa are one people regardless of whether we
speak English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Yoruba, Mandinka, Ndjuka,
Saramaka, Califu, Creole or Dutch, (for more on this see the book, "Susu
and Susunomics," pub. by iUniverse, www.iUniverse.com review at
http://community.webtv.net/pabarton )  After all, the members of the
European Union and ASEAN (Association of South East Asian Nations) also
speak a variety of languages, Yet they are united in their cause. Blacks
in the Americas should also unite for a common cause.  If Africa and the
Black world of the Old World is allowing itself to be used and
fragmented in a new type of colonialism from the Semites and others,
then it is the duty of Africanists in the Americas to create a powerful
movement to make sure Africans/Blacks worldwide take a Black
nationalist/Self-preservation course.  After all, both the Anglo-Saxon
and Semite elements see the preservation of their interests as paramount
to thier survival.  This is one of the reasons that many people in
Europe see as being the reason for the
conflicts in the Middle East and the previous Cold War as well as the
present realignment of Europe.

ANTISEMITISM IN EUROPE AND THE NEW REALIGNMENT

The world is heading into a very dangerous period where the idea of a
world dominated by two ideologies and two superpowers will not be able
to take root.  The new alliances that have been pushed due to the
differences between the US, Britain, Spain, Australia and their allies
on one hand verses France, Russia and Germany on the other hand is a
recipe for a new cold and hot war in the future.
Added to that possibility is the fact that nations like China, Japan,
South Korea and the Asian Tigers are just as likely to view the new
coalition of the willing and the West in general as a threat.  In
future, one should not be surprised if China, Japan, South Korea and
other Asian nations create a strong alliance and work against the type
of interests that the world's people saw forming in Iraq.  That alliance
is not seen as merely the U.S., Spain, England and other nations.  The
anti-Semites clearly have connected the entire situation to an ancient
fear that some are conspiring to control the world's resources and those
with the agenda of control are not the Americans, British, Spanish but a
small, elite and highly organized group of people who are now being
accused of using the US, Spain, Australia, Britain and others for their
own agenda of rebuilding ancient empire in the Middle East on land that
not a single Semite can claim if these lands belonged to the Canaanites,
the Moabites (not the "Mother of all Bombs"
but the ancient Black civilization that existed in Palestine, Israel,
Jordan, Syria and Lebanon before the existence of the descendants of
Abraham and the Shemites), the Khemites and other Black Aboriginal
nations of the Levant.

STOP BLAMING THE JEWS:  THE RISE OF ANTI-SEMITISM IN EUROPE

It is no coincidence that today in Europe and even in the Americas the
rise in anti-Semitism is growing at a rapid and dangerous rate.  One has
to wonder whether the fact that Russia, France and Germany refused to
participate in the "coalition of the willing" has to do with the fear
that they would no longer have any influence if the US, Britain and
their allies had the upper hand in Iraq and made all the decisions.
What the neo-facist commentators and forked-tongue talk-show
propagandists refuse to deal with is the fact that anti-Semitism, hatred
of Jews and the stereotype that Jews control America is believed by many
Europeans especially in nations like France, Germany, Russia and others.
 Hence, it is no mystery that these European governments whose
populations see Semitic/Jewish interests as being promoted in the Middle
East are less likely to go against the feelings of their people.
Perhaps if the forked-tongue troika of the foxist-facist cable networks
were to deal with the fact that again in history, there are many who are
blaming Jews and Jewish/Semitic influence for present-day decisions,
they would open a discussion that would help to alleviate these fears
and rumors, rather than being seen as promoting one view. They would
show the world that there are a wide variety of opinions in the
Jewish/Semitic community ranging from far-right to far left, (please
read the article in The Final Call News, "Role of Jews Provoke Debate,"
pg. 13, www.finalcall.com (originally from IPS News Service). Yet, based
on the opinions of observers and their political leanings, the
propagandists on the neo-facist networks and their radio talk-shows will
see far-left wing "liberals" some who are Jewish (which the far-right
Jewish element never mentions as being Jewish but use words such as
"liberals") and are anti-war as being "anti-American."  On the other
hand, the far-left "liberal" whites, Americans who believe that America
is controlled by people whose loyalties are to foreign nations, liberal
Jews and indigenous nationalists (Black nationalist, and other indigenous
Americans who are not European origins), see the far-right wing
"conservatives" as being allied with a foreign agenda. Some commentators
have pointed out that many of the far-right "conservatives"  are Jewish
and used to be "liberals" in the sixties and are accused of having
introduced the very same "liberal" ideology that hijacked the civil
rights movement for Black equality and  brought about the destruction of
the Black family (through the introduction of divorce, ect) and the
decadence that permeates in America today.

The Awakening

Trapped?!!!

How can the omnipotent, unchangeable, indescribable… creator…creation…creative force…THE ALL, be locked or barred?

 

The relevance of such a question is contained in the fabrics and utter belief of what is truly reality, that which we perceive

 

This force… This energy… This presence… is contained in us ALL…HMMMMMMM, THE ALL…

 

WE carry this expression regardless of wants, desires, and likings… it is a necessity for living

This ancestral…esoteric…universal vibration has never been truly TRAPPED, as I questioned/stated above

 

It has just been ignored; it has been lying dormant for millenniums…forgotten, maybe? Feared, perhaps? Mis-used? 

 

Now that I think for some divine reason this has to be the most logical explanation for our present state

 

But Mis-use is just that…A Missed-Usage that can always be corrected once divine intervention is established

 

For too long the Mis-beliefs that was and still are fabricated to Mis-guide this heavenly-totality…has been forefront in our notions of what can be… will be… and, should be…

 

The truth is {Just my out-look on this plane}, I think that the veil that has been placed on the openness of consciousness needs to be removed to allow the Etheric light of Righteousness to flow through our persona…our aura… our spiritual body… to gain that which WE have been Mis-directing—DIVINITY itself

 

This can be done only, by watering the seed of growth that exists within YOU

 

The invocation of such force starts and ends from the same source… YOU are the center of existence…reality…perception

 

Cleanse the polluted water that has flooded the temporal for ages, and begin you ascension as an entity of light…Godliness is you… walk like the past enlightened ones…walk as an element of creation

 

This is all the inspiration one needs… and should need

 

We are offspring of the creators that were created to…CREATE

 

Awaken the ELOH-body in you and shine your vibrancy to the Universe to feed off

 

Now Open Your Eyes…

THE REVIVING AND CELEBRATING OF ANCIENT AFRICAN FESTIVALS SUCH AS THE
AFRICAN NEW YEAR ON THE SPRING EQUANOX, CAN HELP REVIVE BLACK WORLD
ECONOMIES

One of the ways economies are stimulated and revived is through the
recognition and celebration of festivals.  Whenever African-Americans
and Pan-Africans celebrate Christmas, New Years, Valentine's Day or
other festivals of European/Other people's origins, tens of millions of
dollars is spent and that money usually goes to those who produce,
manufacture and sell the goods associated with these festivals.

In ancient times and today, African traders, merchants and seafarers
were crucial to the keeping of the economic system that helped make
societies wealthy. (Such groups include nationalities like the Soso of
West Africa as well a as those descended from these ancient people who
still engage in trade in the Waschitaw Lands of the South and Midwest or
the Black Califu and other Black indigenous people of African origins in
the Americas).

The celebration of Kwanzaa and the African New Year as well as
recognizing the military prowess of our ancestors in Haiti and
elsewhere, the celebration of some of the festivals such as Carnaval
(called "The Feastival of Osirus," by some Afro-Brazilians) as well as
the Caribbean carnival is the ultimate opportunity to help stimulate the
Black and Pan-African economies, (see the book, "Susu and Susunomics,"
pub. by iUniverse, http://www.iUniverse.com )

If the African-American community in the U.S. with a per capita income
of about 600 billion dollars per year were to have or organize about
five great festivals per year where the exchange and trade of goods were
part of the process, the Black economy would maintain a strong position
and Black businesses would experience growth and stimulation.  This
would occur because people would buy goods, trade and buy what is needed
to celebrate.  The five festivals can be Kwanzaa held from December 26th
to January 1st., Martin Luther King Holiday, Carnaval/Mardi Gras, The
African New Year held on the Spring Equanox, organized summer festivals.
 More can be added to these, including the Southern Football Classics as
well as Spring Break.  It is our duty as African-Americans,
Afro-Caribbeans, Afro-Latinos, Africoid/Negroid peoples of India,
Melanesia and Europe to look into our culture, recognize our traditions,
religions and festivals and use them in our effort to stimulate our
economies.

It was the Greeks writers who pointed out that Africans (called
"Ethiopians" at the time) were the inventors of pomp and ceremony,
festivals, laws, art, and so on.  The use of ceremonies, festivals and
commemorations as well as travelling from one part of the globe to the
other was began by Africans who were interested in trade and commerce.
According to the text "Susu and Susunomics," one of the main reasons for
the migration of Africans out of the African continent in ancient times
was the search for commodities and places where industry could occur.
See "Susu and Susunomics: The History of Pan-African Trade, Commerce,
Money and Wealth," pub. by 1stBooks Library, 2595 Vernal Pike,
Bloomington, Indiana 47404 U.S.A., www.1stbooks.com also at www.barnes
and noble.com ).

Trade, commerce and the recognition of festivals, the creation of art,
crafts, commodities and goods to sell and trade at the ancient festivals
contributed to the building of wealth for communities, the capital to
create public works and develop the land and environment. This was the
case in Egypt, Nubia-Kush, ancient Ghana, Ethiopia, India, Numidia,
Olmec Mexico, the Black Waschitaw Empire of the Midwest/Southern U.S.,
and some of the Black civilizations of Indo-China and the Pacific.  In
all these areas, the two major catalysts in helping to develop and bring
wealth and stability to these regions were the opportunity to create and
produce commodities and the opportunity to trade over a wide area.  In
fact, the book, "Susu Economics, details the many commodities that
Africans traded all over the world as well as the methods and systems of
transportation they used.

In retrospect, as we recognize Black History Month, it is important to
recognize and realize that one of the most ancient celebrations and
festivals celebrated by ancient African civilizations and cultures was
and is the African New Year, which was held on the Spring Equanox.
Today, this festival is called the Mtende Festival in parts of West
Africa, while in other areas, white missionaries have done their utmost
to destroy these vestiges of African identity and culture, (see the
book, "A History of Racism and Terrorism, Rebellion and Overcoming,"
pub. by Xlibris, www.xlibris.com   It is our duty to help revive and
reintroduce our ancient festivals and celebrations and add new ones to
recognize those who have made significant contributions to the
upliftment and survival of African people worldwide.  The revival and
stimulation of the Pan-African/Black economies around the world can also
be rejuvenated when we recognize, celebrate and patronize businesses and
traders who sell their wares to those of us who celebrate our
traditional festivals.

Subject: Michael Jackson & Eurocentrist Ideology and Functioning
Ankh Udja Soneb

Brothers, sisters, and others,

After watching the continued character assassination of Michael Jackson,
it came to me that the machinations of white supremacy are so bizarre, they
are simply just funny. The disturbing way in which Primetime host Barbara
Walters always seemed to have something hurtful to say about Michael
Jackson, before almost every commercial break was itself saddening. Now,
before the Over Emotionals come running out of the woodworks to defend this
decadent system (as Morpheus advised some of us would do), i am not
dismissing all of MJ's behavior. But then, i am not a psychologist, and
will not pretend to be. Michael (like scores of Afrikan people in America)
certaintly suffers from having a ravaged self esteem. He admits it
throughout the broadcast. Let's give him credit for that at least. How many
of us, in our attempt to ignore the same issues, spend our lives trying to
make ourselves more and more of what we're not??? In this instance, Michael
is not alone.

By his own admission, Michael's self image was summarily emaciated,
primarily by his father but by other family members as well. Why??? He was
verbally attacked for having a big nose. There's no wonder, then, why he
would spend so much time and money trying to re-create his nose into that
European, aquiline type nose. Again, he's not alone, as for centuries
millions of Afrikan people (around the world) have been taught to think
less of themselves because of their phenotypical features. Why, to this
very day, bleaching creams "that take away those HORRIBLE blemishes" are
purchased by Afrikan people at alarming rates (and if you think those
products are strictly about removing those blemishes, then as my mentor,
Dr. John Henrik Clarke, would say, that wasn't water you've been drinking).

In this sense, Michael is only a manifestation of over 500 years of
out-right assault on the minds of Afrikan people. But, then, this is hardly
ever considered because 1) it's easier to join in on the character
assassination of someone (especially if they are Afrikan); and 2) too many
of us are not critical thinkers (unless, of course, it comes to who will
win the latest Survivor outing/season or who really has a chance to "make
it" on American Idol). Anyone who may find it difficult to accept this need
only study the works of Afrikan psychologist Kenneth B. Clark, Pan Afrikan
theorectician Amos N. Wilson and noted Afrikan psychiatrist Frances Cress
Welsing. Self hatred is (and has been) so rampant in our community that
there are those of us who will sacrifice life and limb to become "more
beautiful". I think that Michael's desire to make himself over (into
something he is not) needs to be seen in this light.
>
>Also, the attacks on Michael Jackson (personal and otherwise) have seemed
to escalate in the last few years (really in the last few months). Granted,
Michael and his eccentric behavior has always been a cash cow for The
National Enquirer, Star, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CNN, et al. ad infinitum. But
it seems (and i could be incorrect) that the more scathing, vitriolic trash
about him surfaced after he commented about racism in the music industry.
There are no such things as coincidences.

Again, i must add that i do not condone putting a chile over a balcony
banister so fans "could see"; nor do i embrace the notion of an almost
middle aged man sleeping in the same bed as small children (especially when
they are not your own). But where was the same coverage when others have
done far worse??? (e.g. imagine the coverage Jim Jones would have got if
all 3000 of his followers were European and non-Afrikan). To put the nail
in the coffin of those of us who were not ready to roll out of the house
with a sawed off shot gun looking for Mike (that damn pedophile), they
(ABC) give the journalist (Martin Bashir) another 25 minutes to offer HIS
interpretation of the time he spent with Michael. Let us remember a key
word here---JOURNALIST. He's not a psychiatrist, nor is he a psychologist;
he's not an expert on anything except JOURNALISM (and we'll give him the
benefit of the doubt by giving him that).

Yes, Mike has some issues and some serious growing up to do. But there is
more to this story than that. Another angle that should be considered is
that there seems to people out there that are hell-bent on detroying him
(and after the destruction of so many of Afrikans of some kind of stature
[from Michael Jordan, W.E.B. DuBois and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to
Marian Wright Edelman, Maya Angelou and Betty Shabazz], it beginning to
look like MORE THAN a pattern).

Just some thoughts.

SOULONE.

Tarikh Tehuti Bandele.

Hi
I agree with what you have written because it is a good interpretation of
the facts. I am glad that Mike told the world about the way many Blacks
make their children feel embarassed because of their heritage. We are
harder on  ourselves than any European.
    But I think people attack Mike, like they attack other prominent Black
males because whites do not want other whites to respect  any African male
as a man. They put down Mike to put down all successful Blacks. If you saw
the special you must remember how  much people outside of the English
speaking world love Mike. We also know that since the 1930's Blacks have
been more respected on  mainland Europe than in England and America, so
there is no wonder that the media in these countries spend millions of
dollars each year to make the African American male look inferior to rest
of the world.
    This reminds  me of some of  my experiences in the 1980"s when I wrote
on Muslim minority studies. My specialty was Islam  and  Muslims in China.
Whenever I went to an international conference people believed that I was
white, before they saw my face because they could not image an African
American knowing Chinese and some  of the minority languages of China.
After meeting me they assumed I had to be African or Caribbean,  because
they could not undertsand how someone from 47th Street in Chicago could be
an expert on Muslims in China.
   Thanks for taking a serious look at Mike  and providing us with  this
informative analysis of the situation.

Washington tunes in
Critics accuse Clear Channel of shady radio deals and nasty concert business. Now the government is starting to pay attention.

By Eric Boehlert

March 27, 2002  |  Clear Channel Communications, the country's largest radio broadcaster and the dominant player in the live entertainment concert business, is drawing fire from some Washington regulators.

With holdings that include approximately 1,225 radio stations and 130 concert venues, the company in recent years has amassed unparalleled power in the music and entertainment industries. That power -- and what it means for the music business, as well as for Clear Channel competitors -- has been the topic of heated debate within the music industry for the last year.

Critics insist Clear Channel's size and hardball business policies have effectively shut down competition. Yet company officials deny any wrongdoing and suggest that the charges are being made by competitors hoping to distract the multi-billion dollar media giant.

Still, the allegation of unfair practices seems to be gaining some currency inside the Beltway. Last week, Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., became the second congressman this year to write to the Department of Justice and ask for an investigation of Clear Channel's practices.

Also last week, the Federal Communications Commission took the rare step of denying a Clear Channel station purchase. Citing concerns about media concentration, the FCC designated one of its administrative law judges to hear the issue -- the first time that's been done in more than 30 years.

At the same time, the FCC is weighing evidence submitted last year that Clear Channel illegally "parks" or "warehouses" radio stations it's not allowed to own, by selling them to front, or shell, companies. Clear Channel executives adamantly deny the charge, but a former Clear Channel employee now tells Salon the practice goes on in the open.

The accusations indicate a new wave of scrutiny for the billion-dollar media giant.

"The question is, when does being an aggressive company trying to do a good job controlling market share for stockholders, when does that become anti-competitive?" asks Weiner, a member of the Judiciary Committee. In writing to the Department of Justice, Weiner suggested Clear Channel's dominance of the concert business is "harmful to consumers, venue owners and artists."

In January, Rep. Howard Berman, D-Calif., wrote to both the Justice Department and the FCC, urging them to examine several of Clear Channel's business practices. Both agencies responded, telling Berman they were willing to move forward with investigations if they receive evidence of wrongdoing, and would be willing to review any evidence his office receives.

As for Weiner, he says if the Justice Department tells him it has examined the company and is satisfied there is no wrongdoing, he and Berman will likely push for a congressional hearing. Although the House of Representatives and its committees are controlled by Republicans -- who traditionally see no problem with media consolidation -- Weiner says it's "not beyond reason" to suggest a Clear Channel hearing could be scheduled this year.

Weiner's letter centered around a specific allegation involving Clear Channel and how it was able to take a venue contract away from a competitor. The specifics are somewhat complicated, but the allegation is straightforward: When a rival beat out Clear Channel in its attempt to buy a New York-based concert promoter, Clear Channel tried to thwart the deal by turning around and poaching one of the promoter's most important assets, a county-run outdoor amphitheater, with an overly generous contract bid that will cost Clear Channel money in the end.

"We all understand we're competitors and competition is rough, but to us this was completely unparalleled," says Tom Etter, senior vice president of Covanta Energy, which at the time was the majority owner of the Metropolitan Entertainment Group, the New York concert promoter Clear Channel bid on. Clear Channel lost out to Mitch Slater, a well-known New York promoter, who bought Metropolitan.

Then, within weeks of losing out to Slater in February, Clear Channel signed a contract with Lackawanna County in Pennsylvania to operate and book its Montage Mountain Performing Arts Center near Scranton, Pa. The 18,000-seat amphitheater, which Metropolitan helped build and operated exclusively for the last two years, was one of Metropolitan's biggest moneymakers and a key component in Slater's offer to buy the company. "When we called to tell Clear Channel we had decided to go with Mitch Slater they were pretty upset. I heard from many people inside Clear Channel that Mitch would be a formidable competitor and would cost them money. Because if Clear Channel's got to bid for concerts against somebody with a good reputation, like Mitch, it's going to cost them money," says Etter.

Etter accuses Clear Channel, which had just reviewed Metropolitan's financial records for its unsuccessful bid on the company, of taking a loss at Montage Mountain in order to sabotage the Slater/Metropolitan deal and to lock out a competitor. "That was their motivation," says Etter. "Clear Channel hoped the Metropolitan deal would fall apart and it could pick up the pieces. They can't make money off the Montage contract, which will probably lose money every year. So why would they do that? There has to be another motive other than profits."

That allegation is what caught Weiner's attention: "When you start to make deals not in your self-interest and take losses in order to box out the competition, that starts to rise to the level of anti-trust behavior," he says.

A Clear Channel spokesman points out it was the county, unhappy with its Metropolitan relationship, that contacted Clear Channel about taking over Montage Mountain.

He calls the allegation that Clear Channel is willing to lose money on the deal "unfounded," adding, "We're a public company, we're not going to lose money on a facility for the sake of a small competitor. To suggest we've done something wrong here is absurd."

Metropolitan has sued Clear Channel, as well as the county, and is trying to retain exclusive rights to promote Montage Mountain through a court injunction.

Meanwhile, the allegation that Clear Channel "parks" or "warehouses" stations won't go away. Competitors insist the company, as a way to get around ownership limits, has sold off stations to front companies that allow Clear Channel to continue operating the properties. And more important, the shell companies would allow Clear Channel an easy way to buy back the stations if the FCC were to further reduce ownership limits.

"You can only own so many stations in a market. That's the spirit of the rule. Everybody else is playing by the spirit and Clear Channel is allowed to circumvent it," complains one manager who oversees a handful of stations in a top 25-size market. "Everybody's scratching their heads asking, 'How can they do this?' and, 'What is it going to take to get the appropriate government agency to pay attention?'"

As Salon first reported last November, an advertiser in the small Ohio market of Chillicothe filed a petition with the FCC, urging that it deny Clear Channel's proposed purchase of a local country music station, WKKJ. The advertiser, David Ringer, argued the acquisition would give Clear Channel control of all four of Chillicothe's commercially licensed radio stations and would be able to drive up advertising rates. Perhaps more important, Ringer also alleged that Clear Channel has been illegally operating the station for years through a shell company.

Clear Channel answered with its own FCC filing, dismissing Ringer's "scattershot" and "inconsequential" charges. Company executives insist every station transaction they've made has been proper and legal, and that Clear Channel does not try to hides its properties.

Still, in an interview with Salon, a former Clear Channel employee from the Chillicothe area says it was common knowledge among staffers that Clear Channel operated WKKJ.

"It was like a running joke," says Nick Ramsey, who worked for Clear Channel station WSRW and left voluntarily last June. He currently works at WVNU, an independently owned station in nearby Greenfield, Ohio.

Although technically WKKJ had different owners, the feeling among staffers at Clear Channel's nearby stations was that WKKJ was part of the family, says Ramsey. "It never took on the appearance of that was the enemy or a competitor. It was just the other station in town. There was a consensus that something was going on [at WKKJ] but nobody wanted to ask what."

Ramsey says Dan Latham, Clear Channel's general manager who oversaw seven stations in the Ohio region, was on the phone "daily" with WKKJ's G.M. offering advice, and that in 1999 when Concorde Media, the alleged shell company, took control of WKKJ, a Clear Channel engineer was at the station to help solve some technical difficulties.

Ramsey became concerned about the casual overlap with WKKJ because, like all Clear Channel employees, he had signed a noncompete agreement, forbidding him from working for any competing radio stations. Ramsey says he asked his Clear Channel boss if employees weren't violating company policy by doing work for WKKJ, but he did not get an answer.

"It just seems like Clear Channel is overstepping the bounds in Chillicothe," says Ramsey. "They look at what the FCC rules are and bend and shape them as they see fit to get the greatest gain."

Latham could not be reached for comment. A spokesperson for Clear Channel's radio division also could not be reached.

The specifics of Chillicothe may seem minor, considering that Clear Channel operates 1,225 stations in nearly 300 different markets. And in its response to the FCC, the company argues that whatever mix-up may have occurred at WKKJ was due to a "clerical error" committed by a company with such vast holdings. What could prove more damaging to Clear Channel is the allegation made by Ringer and his attorney that the radio giant, in its filings with the commission, has deceived the FCC in order to cover up the fact that it skirted ownership rules.

"The worst thing to do in a deregulated environment is to get caught lying," says Andy Schwartzman, president of the Media Access Project, a public interest group that has been critical of the FCC for not closely scrutinizing further media consolidation.

"When there's less regulation, the onus is on companies to be self-regulating. The FCC relies on people being truthful," says Schwartzman. "The one thing companies can really get in trouble for at the FCC, still, is lying."

In one example cited to the FCC, Ringer notes that Clear Channel filed an application for a license on behalf of what he calls a shell company. The application is signed by Clear Channel's vice president of engineering, as well as by Troy Langham, who lists his e-mail address as "Troylangham@clearchannel.com." Ringer argues that just days later, "realizing that it had made an error," another copy of the same document was filed with the FCC, but gone are signatures from Clear Channel's vice president, and Langham's e-mail address has been changed to "Troylangham@engineer.com."

Wrote Ringer: "Clear Channel's conduct demonstrated a clear intent to conceal material information from the FCC. In this case, and probably others, Clear Channel provided engineering services for front companies and then attempted to conceal its involvement."

The FCC did recently put Clear Channel on notice in a small way, even though it was unrelated to allegation of warehousing stations. Unable to find a public-interest reason to allow the company's proposed purchase of WUMX in Charlottesville, Va., to go forward, the commission announced the request would be decided during an administrative hearing in front of an FCC judge. It's the first time the commission has ordered a hearing to deal with market-concentration issues in a radio station sale since 1969.

The move "was probably a shot across the bow by the commission, an attempt to reassert their relevancy," says one longtime industry veteran who does business with Clear Channel. "The FCC's tired of being told they're toothless and want to show they're not." (In his New York Times column, conservative William Safire, criticizing the pace of media consolidation, recently mocked chairman Powell as a "roundheeled" pushover who's "steering the [FCC] toward terminal fecklessness.")

Others see the move as too little, too late. "It's so incredibly lame," says Schwartzman at the Media Access Project. "It's easy to pick single worst [application] and say we're going to make an example out of you and get a lot of press saying the FCC is cracking down. But how many hundreds of other transactions [like this] has the FCC approved?"

Last year, for instance, former FCC commissioner Gloria Tristani complained when her fellow commissioners, including chairman Michael Powell, OK'ed a station sale in Binghamton, N.Y. It gave just two radio broadcasters control of 91.2 percent of the market's advertising revenue. "Businesses and listeners will face the increasing likelihood that the two dominant owners will engage in advertising price discrimination and other collusive behavior that contravenes the public interest," wrote Tristani, who labeled the FCC's sale approval "regulatory malfeasance."

Yet suddenly the pending sale in Charlottesville, Va., which would have given two companies 94.2 percent market share, has been flagged for the first FCC hearing of its kind in 33 years.

Clear Channel, it seems, has landed on the Beltway.

THE NEW NEGROES

The real point of the article is that there are two very distinct cultures of American blacks.  The first and most dominant culture consists of what the author refers to as the "new Negroes."

Actually, there is nothing new about this culture.  They are the descendants of the house nigger.  They are the Bible-beating Baptist patrons of BET, JET, collard greens and Kentucky Fried Chicken for whom the word "class" is worthless, because they have neither have any class, nor see any reason to have class.  To them, class is a Euocentric invention that refutes their so-called blackness.  And it is.  Because they are simply a color.  They do not identify as Africans; therefore, they have no mother country, no history other slavery, and no standard other than that of their great philosophers -- the pimps and whores whose culture can be heard in the hip-hop music, Barbershop movies, 'Lil Kim fashions, and ghetto-based literature.

And whether they attend Howard or Harvard, they carry their Negro mindset with them.  It is, after all, the essence of the Negro mind.  Praise Jesus! Can I get an amen?

The second much smaller culture consists of African Americans who understand that   Africans and people of African descent must have their own standards and that whatever standard is established must at least equal the standards established by the other peoples of the world.

Obviously, when a culture that has no class confronts a culture with class, there is going to be controversy.  The standard of the house nigger is rooted in the culture of the pimp, the whore, and the bushel of collards.  It is a mindset that cannot be changed with a BS, a MS or even a Ph.D. It is quite nearly genetic.

This is why I repeatedly argue that intelligent people of African descent must remove themselves from the American Negro.  These people cannot be redeemed.  They cannot be saved.  They cannot be rehabilitated.  They are lost; and, they would rather kill anyone who attempts to change them, than elevate their standards.

They are dead.  Bury them and leave them alone.  Let them Rest In Peace.

Sincerely,
Robert A. Daniels

SUFFERING FROM WHITE SUPREMACY

Afrocentric study provides the African Americans the self-discipline, the intellectual ideals, love of learning and other motivational attributes necessary for their acquisition of success, and protection from the mental, and physical suffering caused by WHITE SUPREMACY which takes hold of some Third World people due to the C.A.I.D.S. virus. The antidote to this virus is found on Ta_Seti.

The letters C.A.I.D.S. mean Culturally Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. C.A.I.D.S. has caused much destruction in the African-American community, it is the psychological equivalent to the A.I.D.S.  virus.      

On the other hand, Eurocentricism because of its roots in white supremacy and Negro inferiority cause these salient African attributes to be lacking in most African-Americans. Jewish scholars long ago recognized the need for self-segregation i.e., Jewish institutions to support Jewish traditions.   

Afrocentric studies should be compared to Jewish studies. Jewish studies aim to teach Judaism to Jews and promote Jewish learning and scholarship. No serious commentators attack the self-segregation institution of the Jews that promote Jewish learning and Jewish self-esteem.

Given this reality, Afrocentricism's major objective is to foster Afrocentric learning and scholarship and teach the lessons of African civilization to African-Americans so they can see the learning, science and institutions this civilization called into being in the East and the West. This body of knowledge should promote confidence in African-American youth so they can compete with their fellow Americans.Given the increasing popularity of Afrocentricism and multiculturalism among teachers around the United States, many white "resisters" have began a campaign to discredit Afrocentricism which is really an educational idea aimed to establish racial self-esteem.         

Racial self-esteem is pride in one's own race/ethnic group. Racial self-esteem, which is the goal of Afrocentricism, cannot be equated with racism because racism is the notion that one's own ethnic group is superior to other races or ethnic groups. Afrocentricism just explains the historical role of the African in history. It is based upon the reality--truth-- of the sources of history. It aims to combat C.A.I.D.S.    

Primarily placing the pursuit of European culture and values over the traditional culture and values of Afro-American and African people causes the C.A.I.D.S. virus. This lack of race pride, knowledge of one's past leads to feelings of racial inferiority. Due to C.A.I.D.S. many African-Americans are ignorant of their past, and thusly lack the human values necessary to protect African-American culture from self -destruction. =20       

Today there is an all out attack against Afrocentricism by the Media establishment. No Eurocentric scholars will openly support their attack against Afrocentric scholars by presenting opposing evidence from history, art and archaeology to dispute the Afrocentric claims they just attack Afrocentric scholars and misrepresent what they have said or written.

A major component of Eurocentricism is the notion of African-American intellectual inferiority. As a result, European scholars can write and research the history of any people on earth. African-Americans on the other hand, are believed to lack the intellectual capacity to research, let alone write history.  Due to the Eurocentrist belief in the intellectual inferiority of Africans they believe that African Americans are unsuited to write ancient history, international affairs, or archaeology.    

In the 1980's I was main authority on Muslims minorities in China. Few scholars knew me personally then-they only knew me by the numerous articles I had published on this theme. As a result, when I attended International Conferences, this scholars would question me about my=20 origins, some would declare that I must be Caribbean, others would maintain I was African, when I told them I was an African American that grew up on 47th Street in Chicago, they were surprised because to say the least. It seemed to me that just could not imagine an African American being an expert on Chinese Muslim minorities.

This attitude of many Eurocentrist and Closet Eurocentrist ,may result from several factors especially white supremacy, racial bias and social position. These factors are important ,because of the fact that formerly persons writing on these topics usually came from well-to-do families that could provide them with the capital to undertake research activities abroad. This belief has ghettoized African -American scholars in the academe, and authors generally , to writing only about slavery, the slave trade and/or the cycle of poverty typified by life in the urban centers of the United States.     

Due to C.A.I.D.S. the vast majority of African-Americans feel inferior to Europeans. Because of these feelings of inferiority many middle class African-Americans and the Black Church have perpetuated Eurocentricism instead of fighting to encourage race pride among African-Americans. This failure to assert manliness has allowed C.A.I.D.S. to run=20 rampant in Afro-America . This malady has caused the rise of many social problems among African-Americans who have adopted a negative lifestyle: gangs, bastardy and etc., first imposed on the African slave, but today identical negative behaviors are being perpetuated by  African-Americans who believe that Black Culture is having children out of wedlock, and any other negative visions of America such as gangbanging popularized by the media. All of these negative cultural elements have no basis in Africa, and are the result of  C.A.I.D.S.  

The African-American middle class after the 1920's has avoided identification with Afrocentricism, cultural nationalism or race consciousness. Harold Cruse  has pointed out that "The [Southern] black middle class as it was constituted (even in the north) was not committed to any serious sponsorship of promising artists or any involvement in the 'politics of culture'".

The Church , long an expression of African -American independence has also failed to combat the destructive effects of C.A.I.D.S., because its middle-class materialist orientation. The capitulation of the Black Church and the African-American middle-class to Eurocentric values has not brought them assimilation or integration into the American mainstream , but no true African-Americancultural identity , based on African history and African traditions.

This is especially true of many African-American academics. As a result, we have African American professors like W.J. Moses, in Afrotopia, is happy to brag about the absence of any Afrocentric history courses at any of the major Universities. And makes it clear he wants to maintain the status quo. Consequently, he believes that cultural relativism should control the interpretation of history, not sources and narratives of history( see p.233).      

Granted, today we have more African-American professors then ever before. Yet, these academics produce few if any research articles, or even serve as editors of mainstream intellectual journals. In fact, many African American academic historians ( if they are not writing about slavery) would  not be published  at all if they were not writing books attacking Afrocentrism 

The most glaring evidence of the devastating effects of C.A.I.D.S., is that except for the Afrocentric scholars who self-publish their own work, since the demise of the journal Black World, in the 1970's African-Americans  do not have a journal, which expresses the intellectual ideas, and culture of the African in America. The failure of the African-American academics /intellectuals to publish their own journal suggest that either they have nothing to say, are afraid to express their own opinions without the approval of the department heads at the Universities where they teach, or they simply feel inferior to whites because of their contraction of the C.A.I.D.S.  virus. The failure of African-American intellectuals to publish their work in mainstream publications  also highlight the inability of African-Americans to be fully integrated into American academia. Due to Eurocentricism , even those African-American "scholars " recognized as competent researchers can only hope to associate with the American Academic Establishment, not assimilate into it.

Afrocentricism is the ultimate remedy for the diseases associated with C.A.I.D.S. , such as alleged racial inferiority and racism that destroy the spirit of African-Americans, and especially the self-confidence one needs to compete in the United States--face the challenge of LIFE and WIN! Asante, has noted that "Afrocentricity resonates with the African-American community because it is fundamental to sanity. It is the fastest growing intellectual and practical idea in the community because of its validity when tested against other experiences".

W.E.B. DuBois, in The Souls of Black Folks, has categorize three principle responses of African-Americans to the maladies associated with the C.A.I.D.S. especially white racism. They are l) revolt and revenge, 2) submission to the will of the racist, and 3) a determined effort for self-esteem .

According  DuBois, the first response of African-Americans to racism can be categorize as the slave insurrections led by Gabriel in Virginia in 1800,  Vesey in Carolina in 1822, and Nat Turner also in Virginia around 1831. After slavery this period is best typified by the Black Nationalist Movement of the 960's, which began with the martyrdom of Malcolm X and the rise of militant organizations in African-American communities such as the Black Panthers, SNCC and the Republic of  New Africa. These movements, like the slave rebellions a hundred years earlier were brutally suppressed and destroyed by local state and national police agencies.    

The second form of response made by African-American to white racism is typified by the African-American middle-class,Black Church and violent African-American gangs. The gangs show their affliction with C.A.I.D.S. through their preoccupation with acquiring material gain, wealth/money the cornerstones of Eurocentricism--the free enterprise economic system--with little concern about what happens to their fellow man in the process of acquiring material gain. Many African -American gangs will have very positive pro-Black "literature", i.e., by laws and history that they teach members of gang  to justify their existence as a "positive" force in the community; but in reality , members of these gangs sell drugs and murder one another simply for the love of money. This only increases the riches of peopling living outside their communities, and supports the Eurocentric myths that African people cannot accomplish positive things without the guidance of Europeans, their culture and "science".     

The third response to white racism was formerly the "Negro" Renaissance of the 1920's. Today this response to white supremacy founded upon objective scholarship is Afrocentricism. An Afrocentric view of history is especially needed to combat the debilitating effects of white supremacy and C.A.I.D.S. A luta continua: the struggle continues. C.A.

                                                        A Wake Up Call To All

 First of all May THE SUPREME FORCE, WHO IS THE SOURCE, BLESS US ALL TO SEE THE LIGHT OUT OF DARKNESS OF IGNORANT THOUGHTS, EVIL THOUGHTS, AND RAISE CONSCIOUSNESS THOUGHTS.

To make all Humans To be Thinkers and to Annualize everything that has been thought to them as well as everything that has been brainwash into their mind. It is tragedies that make Humans who at a time made be Racist, forget about racism of any kind in times of tragedies like, earthquakes, tornadoes, volcanoes, tidal waves, hurricanes, terrorist attacks, etc. All that racism crap is out the door for those moments while we all are in some type of tragedies. But let things start to get back normal and we are back to foolishness of Human hate against each other, religious hate against each other, self hate against each other and so on. The terrorist attack on any place in the USA as well as anywhere on our Great Planet Earth is a disgrace to so called suppose to be civilize Human Beings. Cause when any one is attack and lives are lost, buildings are destroyed, land is mess up, everyone forgets evil for the moment love and helping each one comes in for the moment, cries and comfort comes in for the moment. Then when things seems to get back in some type of order again from the chaos that just happen, then Boom. Evil hits again Media sets you to takes sides, people set you to take sides, everyone is looking to whom to blame, but no one is be a thinker and no one is annualizing and no one is seeking out the facts to get to the truths of what has happen. What was the cause that gave these effects,what are the actions we take now after we find out the cause, the effects to bring about justice. So now the hate is back in after we all just went through our sorrows, so we back to racism, evil hate the same crap from the last millennium in this millennium.

Negative energy grabbing at Humans to destroy Humans, animals, lands Mother Earth. It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature. All Humans should be taught in all schools of thoughts about the acts of war, hate, evil, crimes against Humanity and especially on what war and hate does in throwing our Great Planet Earth out of balance. Cause if you the war masters use weapons of destruction on world levels like in World War 1 and World War 2 leading to World War 3, then Mother Nature a Super Force would have to move on Humans under the command of The Supreme Force, who is called by many names to make moves on all us Humans on Earth. For people who THINK, notice after the nuclear weapons that was used in the past World Wars since then there have been many sightings (whether your believe or not), of UFO's since then. There are many who do not know that 2 weeks before this terrible tragedy that has happen in The Great USA, there were sightings of UFO's on the east coast in New York in Long Island as well as Newark NJ. What does it all means ,your guess is as good as mine.

For all that don't watch education TV shows there is talk of a volcanoes in the Canary Islands on the coast of Africa, that numerous scientist are saying that it can erupt any moment today, tomorrow or 50 years from now but it will happen and it will take 8 hours to get out of the East Coast of the USA before a Tidal Wave a hundred times bigger than the world trade center hit our shores. If that not enough California just had a 4.2 earthquake in LA but everyone is waiting on Nostradamus predictions to happen about the big one that will make California into small Islands. As if the west coast do not have enough with mud slides and fires. It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature. But Humans want to attack Humans with acts of terrorism and wars. OK just some years ago in the last millennium Turkey lost over 60,000 Humans in a Earthquake, Venezuela lost over 30,000 Humans to a earthquake and our country India cause the whole Earth is for all of us, India is still suffering like crazy losing hundreds of thousands since last millennium and now to Earthquakes and Floods. Europe in countries like Russia lost Humans to floods, wars all over Europe and Africa. West Indies hit by Hurricanes, Humans Lost, Japan earthquakes, floods more Human lives lost. Parts of Asia internal wars and earthquakes, more Human lives lost. Ireland religious internal wars, lives lost, England Terrorist acts more lives lost, racism in England against White Humans and Brown Indian Humans, more lives lost.

Is there anybody out there thinking on UNITY and what needs to be done to save our Great Planet Earth. Have your forgot what our world wide scientist been telling us for years about the Ozone, the Sun Rays, Cancer, Aids, Diseases, Hunger, Poverty or did we forget that scientist say there is a Meteor heading towards Earth. Are Humans prepare for the Pole Shift that is taking place on our planet. Global Warming. That the ice in the Artic is melting causes all types of floods. And Humans want to do terrorist acts on other Humans, war with other Humans, be racist with other Humans, hate and kill other Humans, kill other Humans in The Name Of The Supreme Force or to even think foolishly that we are all alone in the Super Great Universe (Universes). It's a wake up call, each one teach one. It's not nice to FOOL with MOTHER NATURE LOVE AND RESPECT LIFE MAY THE SUPREME FORCE BLESS ALL THE HUMANS WHO HAVE DIE IN ACTS OF WAR OR ANY TRAGEDIES THAT HAVE HAPPEN ALL OVER EARTH.

 The Hip-Hop Generation Can Call For Peace By Jeff Chang

 [Reply to: cantstopwontstop@mindspring.com] This past weekend, as we mourned the countless victims of 9/11 and built with each other in passionate conversations on what to do next, President George W. Bush finally and unequivocally declared war. He ordered a call-up of 50,000 reservists reinstituting the draft that could leave many innocent Afghanis dead or displaced. Reversing the Powell doctrine to seize upon a desire for vengeance, he warned that there may be no forseeable end to this war, and declared no specific enemy. This does not bode well for the hip-hop generation. As STORM, the Bay Area hip-hop activist organization says, "Increasingly, safety at home will require justice abroad." Bushs open-ended war could leave us increasingly insecure, subject to more terror not less, with less justice for all in the world. Because of its history, the global hip-hop generation can play a crucial moral role in the call for peace global peace free from terror. At one time, others dissed our generation by saying that we were privileged, that we had never been tested by war. [This was before Bushs father opened the Persian Gulf War.]

The fact is that hip-hop was born under the conditions of war. It grew and spread as a global alternative to war. Before hip-hop, during the early 1970s, Jamaicas bloody tribal wars fostered a music and culture of defiance in roots, dancehall and dub reggae. This music and culture street and governmental neglect that when Ronald Reagan visited in 1980, he declared that it looked like London after World War II. In the Bronx, the Universal Zulu Nation, hip-hops first institution and organization, literally emerged from a peace forged between racially divided, warring gangs. As Reagan took office, immigration was rapidly browning the face of America. The "culture war" was declared diversity. Culture warriors went after youth in their schools; they fought multiculturalism, ethnic studies, and affirmative action. In Congress, they sought limits on movie and music content. Hip-hop turned out to be everything they detested truth-telling, unapologetic, and, worst of all, their kids loved it. Imagine how they felt when Chuck D enlistened millions into the opposition by rhyming, "They'll never care for the brothers and sisters cause the country has us up for a war." In one sense, hip-hop won the culture war.

By the end of the 80s, Public Enemy and Spike Lee, John Singleton and N.W.A., and other brothers and sisters had crashed the lily-white pop culture mainstream. Hip-hop became the single most potent global youth force in a generation. But the culture war had serious political consequences, too. Right-wingers manufactured the conditions wars in Central America in stigmatizing inner-city gangs young, poor people of color Hip-hop reveled in the young generations diversity. The culture warriors taught other generations to be afraid of it.

When the 90s came, they warned of a coming wave of juvenile crime, one that would crest with the darkening demographic surge. Their apocalyptic predications began a dramatic shift in juvenile justice, away from rehabilitation towards incarceration. 48 states made their juvenile crime statutes more punitive. Dozens of cities instituted curfews, anti-cruising laws, and sweep ordinances (which were ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court but have reappeared in many cities). Especially after the 1992 Los Angeles riots, as urgent gang truce work forged peaces across the country, the new laws were implemented at a feverish clip and enforced with a heavy hand. Juvenile arrests and detention populations skyrocketed, even as juvenile violent crime rates plummeted. Local police, the FBI, and private companies began compiling gang databases. Every young boy or girl of color who fit the profile athletic shoes, hip-hop swagger Cook County, IL, the gang database was two-thirds black. In Orange County, CA, 92 percent of those listed in the gang database were of color. Angry Black, Chicano and Latino parents in Denver, CO, learned that eight of every ten young people of color in the entire city were listed. Post-modern racial profiling was invented for the hip-hop Generation, the most catalogued and surveillanced in history.

Along with the "war on drugs" prison population in world history youth" left a generation staring into a tense present and an insecure future. These are the reasons why thousands of hip-hop activists came out to protest at the Republican and Democratic Conventions last year. They took courageous stands against the massive profiling and imprisoning of a generation; against the death penalty; for better education; and for stopping gang violence. They linked these issues to global struggles for economic and racial justice. Now that President Bush has declared an open war with no clear enemy, the global, multiracial, polycultural hip-hop generation can elevate beyond the chant of "No justice, no peace" when uttered by Bush. If we can understand the history of wars from Israel to Afghanistan the way that we understand our own generations history, we can link what is happening on our streets with what is happening in our world. We can call for peace on our streets imprisoning, to be free from the cycle of violence that causes us to kill each other needlessly. And we can call for peace in our world that strikes our bodies and our hearts, to be free from the cycles of violence driven by geopolitical posturing and economic greed that cause us to kill each other needlessly. Everyone deserves a better, safer future. Hip-hop has already survived many wars. Time and again, we have learned how to react to crisis by forging a principled peace. As we stand on the brink of the biggest war we have ever faced, let us come together to find the most powerful, lasting peace yet.

                                                                                                                                             

A LETTER TO YOU FROM SATAN

I saw you yesterday as you began your daily chores. You awoke without kneeling to pray. As a matter of fact, you didn't even bless your meals, or pray before going to bed last night. You are so unthankful, I like that about you. I cannot tell you how glad I am that you have not changed your way of living, Fool, you are mine. Remember, you and I have been going steady for years. and I still don't love you yet. As a matter of fact, I hate you, because I hate God. I am only using you to get even with God. He kicked me out of heaven, and I'm going to use you as long as possible to pay him back.

You see, Fool, GOD LOVES YOU and HE has great plans in store for you. But you have yielded your life to me, and I'm going to make your life a living hell. That way, we'll be together twice. This will really hurt God. Thanks to you, I'm really showing Him who's boss in your life with all of the good times we've had. We have been watching dirty movies, cursing people out, stealing, lying, being hypocritical, fornicating, overeating, telling dirty jokes, gossiping, being judgmental, back stabbing people, disrespecting adults, and those in leadership positions, no respect for the Church, bad attitudes. SURELY you don't want to give all this up. Come on, Fool, let's burn together forever. I've got some hot plans for us. This is just a letter of appreciation from me to you. I'd like to say "THANKS" for letting me use you for most of your foolish life. You are so gullible, I laugh at you.

When you are tempted to sin, you give in HA HA HA, you make me sick. Sin is beginning to take it's toll on your life. You look 20 years older, and now, I need new blood. So go ahead and teach some children how to sin. All you have to do is smoke, get drunk or drink while under-aged, cheat, gamble, gossip, fornicate, and live being as selfish as possible. Do all of this in the presence of children and they will do it too. Kids are like that. Well, Fool, I have to let you go for now. I'll be back in a couple of seconds to tempt you again. If you were smart, you would run somewhere, confess you sins, and live for God with what little bit of life that you have left. It's not my nature to warn anyone, but to be your age and still sinning, it's becoming a bit ridiculous. Don't get me wrong, I still hate you.

IT'S JUST THAT YOU'D MAKE A BETTER FOOL FOR CHRIST. P.S. If you really love me, you won't share this letter with anyone.

"A goal is a dream that has an ending."

WORD FOR TODAY

AFRICAN CULTURE

 

The original Hebrew (or He-hu-ba-ru) faith was faith in establishing Heru's kingdom on earth as the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of the true brotherhood of man being one and the same.  Thus the original Hebrew faith was a branch of African divinity, or the African divinity of Heru, the only direct link between the souls of humankind and the Pure and Perfect Mind of God the Creator himself.  That makes the glorified soul of Heru the God of the earth, and the Hebrew branch of his divinity one of the two olive trees described in Revelation 11:4.

On the other hand, African culture has allowed African people to become first in HIV/ADIDS, first in hunger, first in stravation, and first in illiteracy.  It should be obvious to any intelligent African that it is time to abandon African culture and get into African divinity and human culture (the highest order of human organization) being organized under the influence of the moral discilpines of African divinity.  If we are to have the true brother of man on earth and the Kingdom of God on earth as being one and the same, then there is much that the Europeans must take the blame for (the list is virtually endless), but we must not blame the Europeans for what African culture has allow us to become, first in everything immoral and last in everything moral, first in everything void of intelligence and last in everthing filled with intelligence, first in suffering and last in healing.
 

LUKE 6:39-42
 

"And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind:"
"The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be his master
[meaning his own master]."
"And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?"
"Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is  in thine own eye?"  Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother's eye."


It is a pitiful culture that is void of the intelligence to know when it is time to change, when it is time for all things to be made new.

REVELATION 21:5
 

"And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I Make All Things New. and he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful."

My last visit to some African countries made me sick to the heart.  The culture of most Africans have gone worst from what it was in 1957.  Independence has brought untold hardship on the continental Africans.  We are no more what we were even in the 1960s.  All the SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF AFRICA (SADA) have gone through the changes, that the Europeans brought to Africa.

If independence had come to Africa in the 18th Century, Africa would have lost all its languages. United Nations reported two months ago that Africa is loosing its languages so fast that something must be done about it. 
Our African culture is gone.  Our Religion is on the blink.


What is culture?  Culture is simply one society's solutions to perennial human problems, such as how to dress, eat, celebrate holidays, resolve conflict, work, think, learn, and worship.  By it very definition, we know that culture is subject to change.  What is divinity?  Divinity is what links us to God, our Creator.  Divinity never changes.  If humankind remains on earth another million years, what links their souls to God (divinity) will never change.  The glorified soul of Heru, who appeared on earth as a Hamitic Ethiopian, is what links the souls of all humankind to God, and that will never change.  Therefore, wouldn't it make more sense to restore among our people African divinity, something that will never change, than to get all worked up about inevitable changes in culture that neither you or I can stop?

"God please grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the strength to change the thinks I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."

A disorganized group such as Africans in USA are a useless group, a hopeless group and a pathetic lot.


SADA says the only people that exist in USA are the organized ETHNIC GROUPS organizations like the CHINESE, LATINOS, JEWS, the Arabs, THE GREEKS, ITALIANS and under Internal Revenue Code 501(C)(3) etc.   Both  the  Diaspora Africans and continental Africans have failed in my life time because we have failed to do what others have done. Africans do not exist in USA., and all the wealth means nothing.



Let us take a look at the Greeks and Italians you mentions.  The Greeks at one time worshipped gods such as
Zeus, Poseidon, Athena, Apollo, Eros, etc.  The Italians (or Romans) use to worship gods such as Jupiter, Neptune, Minerva, Venus, Cupid, etc.  But something happened that change these to cultures forever--to the point that all the gods of their cultures were abandoned to accommodate a much higher understanding of God.  What happened to these two societies is the Gospel of Christ.  And as fate would have it (or as God would have it), the Gospel of Christ was introduced into these two societies as the works of an African, an Ethiopian Hebrew known as Jesus or Yeshua.  The works of this African brought about great changes in cultures of these to societies, which in turn brought untold hardships upon the masses, who were not prepared for such radical changes.  Nevertheless, when the majority of the masses were able to adapt to the changes in culture, they realized that it was the greatest thing to ever happen to these two societies.  So much so that they started to record time around the birth of this African known as Jesus.  Therefore, not to minimize or negate the evils the Europeans introduced into Africa, it is not wise to conclude that everything introduced into the society of one race by people of another race is evil or negative.

Most important of all to understand is the fact that much of what was introduced into Africa by the Europeans were the fruit of African divinity, or the fruits of the scientific intelligence generated by African--the very same African divinity that Africans have traditionally and culturally rejected.  Through works of the Europeans, the Heavenly Father Heru is giving Africans another chance to restore among the firstborn of Creation the African divinity they have been rejecting for 7,500 years.  Wherefore, it was prophesied some 7,500 years ago that West Africans and the slaves taken from West Africa would do great evil against African divinity.
 

The Lost Books of The Bible and The Forgotten Books of Eden

 

THE FIRST BOOK of ADAM and EVE 50:3-7

 

"Then the Word of God came to them, and drove away the lion from them."
"And God said unto Adam, 'O Adam, what seekest thou in the western border
[which is West Africa]?  And why hast thou left of thine own accord the eastern border [which is East Africa], in which was thy dwelling-place?
"Now, then, turn back to thy cave, and remain in it, that Satan do not deceive thee, nor work his purpose upon thee
[through the deceit of West Africans and the slaves taken from West Africa]."
"For in this western border
[West Africa], O Adam, there will go from thee a seed, that shall replenish it; and that will defile themselves with their sins, and with their yielding to the behests of Satan, and by following his works [so obviously the Gospel of Heru was taught in West Africa, but rejected in favor of African culture, like light shining in darkness and the darkness comprehending it not--John 1:5]."
"Therefore will I bring upon them the waters of a flood, and overwhelm them all
[as in a flood of slave traders and European conquers].  But I will deliver what is left of the righteous among them; and I will bring them to a distant land [the United States and the Americas], and the land in which  thou dwellest now [in West Africa] shall remain desolate and without one inhabitant in it [whose name is written in the Lamb's Book of Life as a citizen of New Jerusalem]."

WORD FOR TODAY

TRUE FREEDOM


 

True Freedom is being free from having others define who your enemies are.  True Freedom is therefore being free to love, being free to love your neighbor and all your brothers and sisters of the human family as you love yourself.

In the name of freedom, a government can forge a chain and bind its citizens in legislated behavior.  But love cannot be legislated.  The citizens are therefore bound in a false sense of freedom.  Therein they feel free to retain hatred in their hearts for their neighbors--as long as their behavior is legislated.  That is not freedom genuine.  It is a counterfeit and all the participants therein are guilty of the most hideous crime.

In the name of freedom, a priest can forge a chain and bind his congregation in the divine principles of freedom.  The congregation accepts the divine principles of freedom in principle only but never put them into practice.  The congregation is therefore guilty of fraud and the priest is a party to the crime.

WORD FOR TODAY

BE A MAN

In his rally cry "Up, Up You Mighty Race," Marcus Garvey declared that there is no greater tribute that we could pay to our Creator than to function as Man [Man created in the image of God].
 

GENESIS 3:8-9
 

"And they heard the voice of God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden."
"And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?"

What was the Lord God looking for when He walked through the garden in the cool of the day?   Was He looking for a Christian, a Muslim, a Jew, a Hebrew Israelite, a Rastafarian, a Hindu, a Buddhist, etc.?  No, He was looking for a man, the man who He had created in his own image.   In essence, God was looking for Himself in the form of a man.  If that is what God was looking for in the beginning, that is what He will be looking for in the end.   God does change.  Therefore, there is no label we can put on ourselves to change God to look for something different that what He was looking for in the beginning.   Such labels can be like the trees, among which Adam and Eve hid themselves because they were yet to develop into the image of God.  They were yet to develop into a real man and woman.  However, if other human beings choose to wear religious label and can still become the man or woman God was looking for in the beginning, then more power to them.   Personally, I chose to stay away from such labels so I can be free to love the brother who labels himself a Christian just as much as I love the brother who labels himself a Muslim, and so on and so forth.   If God is indeed unconditional love, as a man created in the image of God, I must also transform into unconditional love.  For that is the ultimate essence of a MAN created in the image of God.

Note: Man is used here as the default term for both man and woman.

Racial Label Surprises Many Latino Immigrants
By Darryl Fears
Washington Post Staff Writer
Thursday, December 26, 2002


At her small apartment near the National Cathedral in Northwest
Washington, Maria Martins quietly watched as an African American
friend studied a picture of her mother. "Oh," the friend said,
surprise in her voice. "Your mother is white."
She turned to Martins. "But you are black."
That came as news to Martins, a Brazilian who, for 30 years
before immigrating to the United States, looked in the mirror
and saw a morena -- a woman with caramel-colored skin that is
nearly equated with whiteness in Brazil and some other Latin
American countries. "I didn't realize I was black until I came
here," she said.

That realization has come to hundreds of thousands of
dark-complexioned immigrants to the United States from Brazil,
Colombia, Panama and other Latin nations with sizable
populations of African descent. Although most do not identify
themselves as black, they are seen that way as soon as they set
foot in North America.

Their reluctance to embrace this definition has left them
feeling particularly isolated -- shunned by African Americans
who believe they are denying their blackness; by white Americans
who profile them in stores or on highways; and by
lighter-skinned Latinos whose images dominate Spanish-language
television all over the world, even though a majority of Latin
people have some African or Indian ancestry.

The pressure to accept not only a new language and culture, but
also a new racial identity, is a burden some darker-skinned
Latinos say they face every day.
"It's overwhelming," said Yvette Modestin, a dark-skinned native
of Panama who works as an outreach coordinator in Boston.
"There's not a day that I don't have to explain myself."
E. Francisco Lopez, a Venezuelan-born attorney in Washington,
said he had not heard the term "minority" before coming to
America.

"I didn't know what it meant. I didn't accept it because I
thought it meant 'less than,' " said Martins, whose father is
black. " 'Where are you from?' they ask me. I say I'm from
Brazil. They say, 'No, you are from Africa.' They make me feel
like I am denying who I am."

Exactly who these immigrants are is almost impossible to divine
from the 2000 Census. Latinos of African, mestizo and European
descent -- or any mixture of the three -- found it hard to
answer the question "What is your racial origin?"
Some of the nation's 35 million Latinos scribbled in the margins
that they were Aztec or Mayan. A fraction said they were Indian.
Nearly forty-eight percent described themselves as white, and
only 2 percent as black. Fully 42 percent said they were "some
other race."

Between Black and White

Race matters in Latin America, but it matters differently.
Most South American nations barely have a black presence. In
Argentina, Chile, Peru and Bolivia, there are racial tensions,
but mostly between indigenous Indians and white descendants of
Europeans.

The black presence is stronger along the coasts of two nations
that border the Caribbean Sea, Venezuela and Colombia -- which
included Panama in the 19th century -- along with Brazil, which
snakes along the Atlantic coast. In many ways, those nations
have more in common racially with Puerto Rico, Cuba and the
Dominican Republic than they do with the rest of South America.
This black presence is a legacy of slavery, just as it is in the
United States. But the experience of race in the United States
and in these Latin countries is separated by how slaves and
their descendants were treated after slavery was abolished.
In the United States, custom drew a hard line between black and
white, and Jim Crow rules kept the races separate. The color
line hardened to the point that it was sanctioned in 1896 by the
Supreme Court in its decision in Plessy v. Ferguson, which held
that Homer Plessy, a white-complexioned Louisiana shoemaker,
could not ride in the white section of a train because a single
ancestor of his was black.

Thus Americans with any discernible African ancestry -- whether
they identified themselves as black or not -- were thrust into
one category. One consequence is that dark-complexioned and
light-complexioned black people combined to campaign for equal
rights, leading to the civil rights movement of the 1960s.
By contrast, the Latin countries with a sizable black presence
had more various, and more fluid, experiences of race after
slavery.

African slavery is as much a part of Brazil's history as it is
of the United States's, said Sheila Walker, a visiting professor
of anthropology at Spelman College in Atlanta and editor of the
book "African Roots/American Cultures." Citing the census in
Brazil, she said that nation has more people of African descent
than any other in the world besides Nigeria, Africa's most
populous country.

Brazil stands out in South America for that and other reasons.
Unlike most nations there, its people speak Portuguese rather
than Spanish, prompting a debate over whether Brazil is part of
the Latino diaspora.

Brazilian slavery ended in 1889 by decree, with no civil war and
no Jim Crow -- and mixing between light- and dark-complexioned
Indians, Europeans, Africans and mulattoes was common and, in
many areas, encouraged. Although discrimination against
dark-complexioned Brazilians was clear, class played almost as
important a role as race.

In Colombia, said Luis Murillo, a black politician in exile from
that country, light-complexioned descendants of Spanish
conquistadors and Indians created the "mestizo" race, an
ideology that held that all mixed-race people were the same. But
it was an illusion, Murillo said: A pecking order "where white
people were considered superior and darker people were
considered inferior" pervaded Colombia.

Murillo said the problem exists throughout Latin American and
Spanish-speaking Caribbean countries with noticeable black
populations. White Latinos control the governments even in
nations with dark-complexioned majorities, he said. And in
nations ruled by military juntas and dictators, there are few
protests, Murillo said.

In Cuba, a protest by Afro-Cubans led to the arming of the
island's white citizens and, ultimately, the massacre of 3,000
to 6,000 black men, women and children in 1912, according to
University of Michigan historian Frank Guridy, author of "Race
and Politics in Cuba, 1933-34."

American-influenced Cuba was also home to the Ku Klux Klan
Kubano and other anti-black groups before Fidel Castro's
revolution. Now, Cuban racism still exists, some say, but black,
mulatto and white people mix much more freely. Lopez, the
Afro-Venezuelan lawyer, said, "Race doesn't affect us there the
way it does here," he said. "It's more of a class thing."
Jose Neinstein, a native white Brazilian and executive director
of the Brazilian-American Cultural Institute in Washington,
boiled down to the simplest terms how his people are viewed. "In
this country," he said, "if you are not quite white, then you
are black." But in Brazil, he said, "If you are not quite black,
then you are white."

The elite in Brazil, as in most Latin American nations, are
educated and white. But many brown and black people also belong
in that class. Generally, brown Brazilians, such as Martins,
enjoy many privileges of the elite, but are disproportionately
represented in Brazilian slums.

Someone with Sidney Poitier's deep chocolate complexion would be
considered white if his hair were straight and he made a living
in a profession. That might not seem so odd, Brazilians say,
when you consider that the fair-complexioned actresses Rashida
Jones of the television show "Boston Public" and Lena Horne are
identified as black in the United States.
Neinstein remembered talking with a man of Poitier's complexion
during a visit to Brazil. "We were discussing ethnicity,"
Neinstein said, "and I asked him, 'What do you think about this
from your perspective as a black man?' He turned his head to me
and said, 'I'm not black,' " Neinstein recalled. " . . . It
simply paralyzed me. I couldn't ask another question."

By the same token, Neinstein said, he never perceived
brown-complexioned people such as Maria Martins, who works at
the cultural institute, as black. One day, when an African
American custodian in his building referred to one of his
brown-skinned secretaries as "the black lady," Neinstein was
confused. "I never looked at that woman as black," he said. "It
was quite a revelation to me."

Those perceptions come to the United States with the light- and
dark-complexioned Latinos who carry them. But here, they collide
with two contradictory forces: North American prejudice and
African American pride.

'I've Learned to Be Proud'

Vilson DaSilva, a native of Brazil, is a moreno. Like his wife,
Maria Martins, he was born to a black father and a white mother.
But their views on race seem to differ.
During an interview when Martins said she had no idea how they
had identified themselves on the 2000 Census form, DaSilva
rolled his eyes. "I said we were black," he said.
He is one of a growing number of Latin immigrants of African
descent who identify themselves as Afro-Latino, along the same
color spectrum as African Americans.

"I've learned to be proud of my color," he said. For that, he
thanked African American friends who stand up for equal rights.
An emerging cadre of Latinos in Washington are embracing their
African identities and speaking out against what they say is a
white Latino establishment, in the U.S. and abroad.
Lopez, the Afro-Venezuelan lawyer, who lives in Columbia
Heights, said there was prejudice even in such Hispanic civil
rights organizations as the League of United Latin American
Citizens, the Mexican-American Legal Defense and Educational
Fund and the National Council of La Raza, where, he said, few
dark-complexioned Latinos work in the offices or sit on the
board. "La Raza? Represent me? Absolutely not," Lopez said.
Charles Kamasaki, an analyst for La Raza, disagreed. "I don't
think you can make snap judgments like that," he said. "The way
race is played out in Latino organizations is different. There
are dark-complexioned people on our board, but I don't know if
they identify as Afro-Latino. Our president is mestizo. I would
resist the assertion that this organization is excluding anyone
because of race."

Yvette Modestin, the black Panamanian who identifies as an
Afro-Latina, said that although she accepts her blackness, she's
also an immigrant who speaks Spanish. In other words, she's not
a black American. "My brother's married to a Mexican," she said.
"My brother's been called a sellout by black women while walking
down the street with his wife. They are both Latino. They think
he married outside his race."

DaSilva agreed that nuances separate African Americans and
Afro-Latinos, but he also believes that seeing Latin America
through African American eyes gave him a better perspective.
Unfortunately, he said, it also made him angrier and more
stressed.
When DaSilva returned to Brazil for a visit, he asked questions
he had never asked, and got answers that shocked him.
His mother told him why her father didn't speak to her for 18
years: "It was because she married a black man," he said. One
day, DaSilva's own father pulled him aside to provide his son
some advice. " 'You can play around with whoever you want,' "
DaSilva recalled his father saying, " 'but marry your own kind.'
" So DaSilva married Martins, the morena of his dreams.
She is dreaming of a world with fewer racial barriers, a world
she believes she left in Brazil to be with her husband in
Washington.

As Martins talked about the nation's various racial blends in
her living room, her 18-month-old son sat in front of the
television, watching a Disney cartoon called "The Proud Family,"
about a merged black American and black Latino family. The
characters are intelligent, whimsical, thoughtful, funny, with
skin tones that range from light to dark brown.
The DaSilvas said they would never see such a show on Latin
American TV.

Martins said her perspective on race was slowly conforming to
the American view, but it saddened her. She doesn't understand
why she can't call a pretty black girl a negrita, the way Latin
Americans always say it, with affection. She doesn't understand
why she has to say she's black, seeming to deny the existence of
her mother.

"Sometimes I say she is black on the outside and white on the
inside," DaSilva said of his wife, who threw her head back and
laughed.

'Stakes Is High'

by JEFF CHANG

Fifteen years ago, rappers like Public Enemy, KRS-One and Queen Latifah were
received as heralds of a new movement. Musicians--who, like all artists,
always tend to handle the que....... f youth culture.
The "hip-hop lifestyle" is now available for purchase in every suburban
mall. "Political rap" has been repackaged by record companies as merely
"conscious," retooled for a smaller niche as an alternative. Instead of
drinking Alizé, you drink Sprite. Instead of Versace, you wear Ecko. Instead
of Jay-Z, you listen to the Roots. Teen rap, party rap, gangsta rap,
political rap--tags that were once a mere music critic's game--are literally
serious business.

"Once you put a prefix on an MC's name, that's a death trap," says Talib
Kweli, the gifted Brooklyn-born rapper who disdains being called
"conscious." Clearly his music expresses a well-defined politics; his rhymes
draw from the same well of protest that nourished the Last Poets, the Watts
Prophets and the Black Arts stalwarts he cites as influences. But he argues
that marketing labels close his audience's minds to the possibilities of his
art. When Kweli unveiled a song ca........ s Five released "The
Message," a dirge (by the standards of the day) that seethed against the
everyday violence of disinvestment. Flash was certain the record, which was
actually an A&R-pushed concoction by Duke Bootee and Melle Mel, would flop;
it was too slow and too depressing to rock a party. But Sugar Hill Records
released the song as a single over his objections, and "The Message" struck
the zeitgeist like a bull's-eye. Liberal soul and rock critics, who had been
waiting for exactly this kind of statement from urban America, championed
it. Millions of listeners made it the third platinum rap single.

Through the mid-1980s, Melle Mel, Afrika Bambaataa and Soul Sonic Force,
Run-DMC and others took up the role of the young black lumpenrapper
opposition, weighing in on topics like racism, nuclear proliferation and
apartheid. And just as the first Bush stepped into office, a new generation
began to articulate a distinctly post-civil righ....... dutainment" came out of the
convergence of two very different desires: the need for political
empowerment and the need to be empowered by images of truth. On 1990's "Can
I Kick It?," A Tribe Called Quest's Phife Dawg captured the mood of his
audience sweetly and precisely: "Mr. Dinkins, will you please be our mayor?"
But while Mayor Dinkins's career quickly hit a tailspin, hip-hop rose by
making blackness--even radical blackness--the worldwide trading currency of
cultural cool.

In the new global entertainment industry of the 1990s, rap became a hot
commodity. But even as the marketing dollars flowed into youth of color
communities, major labels searched for ways to capture the authenticity
without the militancy. Stakes was high, as De La Soul famously put it in
1996, and labels were loath to accept such disruptions on their investments
as those that greeted Ice-T and Body Count's "Cop Killer" during the '92
election season. Rhymers kickin........ ed Roc-A-Fella company peddles
branded movies, clothing and vodka. Hip-hop, some academics assert, is
hegemonic. But as the social turmoil described by many contemporary rappers
demonstrates, this generation of youth of color is as alienated and
downpressed as any ever has been. And the act of tying music to
lifestyle--as synergy-seeking media companies have effectively done--has
distorted what marketers call the "aspirational" aspects of hip-hop while
marginalizing its powers of protest.

Yet the politics have not disappeared from popular rap. Some of the most
stunning hits in recent years--DMX's "Who We Be," Trick Daddy's "I'm a
Thug," Scarface's "On My Block"--have found large audiences by making whole
the hip-hop generation's cliché of "keeping it real," being true to one's
roots of struggle. The video for Nappy Roots' brilliant "Po' Folks" depicts
an expansive vision of rural Kentucky--black and white, young and old
together, living l......... c 5, Zion I and dead prez have attained modest success by
offering visions of twenty-first-century blackness--hypertextual rhymes,
stuttering rhythms and lush sounds rooted in a deep understanding of
African-American cultural production and ready-made for a polycultural
future. The Roots' album Phrenology stretches hip-hop's all-embracing
method--the conviction that "every music is hip-hop" and ready to be
absorbed--to draw from a palette as wide as Jill Scott, Bad Brains, James
Blood Ulmer and the Cold Crush Brothers. Common's Electric Circus takes cues
from Prince and Sly Stone in reimagining the hip-hop concept album.

Tensions often spring from the compromises inherent in being given the
budget to build a statement while being forced to negotiate the major
label's Pavlovian pop labyrinth, and others have left the system to, as
Digital Underground once famously put it, do what they like, albeit for much
smaller audiences. Public Enemy has ...... ll Scott, Goapele
and Angie Stone to mix up and transform both rap and r&b. "Neosoul" has been
especially attractive to women and post-young 'uns. Its hip-hop feminist
critique came into sharp relief last year. After years of flying high, rap
sales crashed by 15 percent, leading an industrywide plunge. But
multiplatinum newcomers Alicia Keys and India.Arie were garlanded with a
bevy of Grammy nominations. Keys and Arie celebrated "a woman's worth" and
were frankly critical of male irresponsibility. India.Arie's breakout hit
"Video"--in which she sang, "I'm not the average girl from your
video"--stole the music that had once been sampled for a rap ode to oral sex
called "Put It in Your Mouth."

Hip-hop feminism has been articulated by Joan Morgan as a kind of loyal but
vocal, highly principled opposition to black (and brown and yellow) male
übermasculinity. In the same way, neosoul dissects the attitudes and ideals
projected in the hip-......... transformation. "Back in the '60s,
there was a big push for black senators and politicians, and now we have
more than we ever had before, but our communities are so much worse," says
Talib Kweli. "A lot of people died for us to vote, I'm aware of that
history, but these politicians are not in touch with people at all. Politics
is not the truth to me, it's an illusion." For a generation that has made a
defensive virtue of keeping it real, the biggest obstacle to societal change
may simply be the act of imagining it.

These are the kinds of paradoxes the silver-tongued Kweli grapples with on
his second solo album, Quality, as masterful a summation of the hip-hop
generation's ambivalent rage as Morgan's book, When Chickenheads Come to
Roost. On one of his early songs, Kweli synthesized 1960s militancy and
1990s millenarianism in a phrase, rapping about the need for "knowledge of
self-determination." At one point on the Nina Simone-flavored "Get....... nt is Bush, the Vice President is Dick, so a whole lotta fucking is
what we get. They don't want to raise the baby so the election is fixed.
That's why we don't be fucking with politics!"

But politicians can't stop fucking with rap and the hip-hop generation.
Senator Joe Lieberman regularly rallies cultural conservatives against the
music. Michael Powell's corporate-friendly, laissez-faire FCC has censored
only the white male rap star Eminem and the black feminist hip-hop poet
Sarah Jones. Texas Republican John Cornyn overcame African-American Democrat
Ron Kirk's November Senate bid by linking him to police-hating (and,
interestingly, ballot-punching) rappers. When Jam Master Jay, the
well-respected, peace-making DJ of rap group Run-D.M.C., was murdered in
October, police and federal investigators intensified their surveillance of
rappers while talking heads and tabloids like the New York Post decried the
music's, and this generation's,
PRESS RELEASE
Once Again, December 10th Is The 54th Anniversary Celebration Of The United
Nation's (UN) Universal Charter Declaration On Human Rights.

However:  "European/American Enslavement & Colonization Of African People Is
A Human Rights Abuse, Lest We Forget!"

Yes, once again, December 10th comes around as the United Nations (UN) date
to celebrate its Charter outlining the Universal Declaration on Human
Rights.   The Charter states that every human being has an "Inalienable
Right" to exist on this Planet Earth, without being oppressed nor suppressed
of his or her rights.

However, the AFRIKAN WORLD REPARATIONS & REPATRIATION TRUTH COMMISSION
(AWRRTC) does not believe the signatories who appended their signature to
this historic document ever realistically intended for this
Charter-Universal Declaration on Human Rights to apply to Black African
people.   First of all, I say this because at the time of drawing up this
document in the late 1940s and it subsequently becoming a Universal Charter,
there was not one African nation that was a party to help formulate this
Charter.   In fact, at that period of time, the whole of the African Content
was still under European Colonization save Ethiopia and Liberia, which were
the only African independent states.

The African Continent was being colonized by Aryan-white European nations
such as England, France, Belgium, Spain and Portugal.   Germany had lost her
African colonies to France and England as a result of losing World War II.
Also, during this same period of time, other regions of the world were being
colonized by these same nations; with the addition of Denmark and
Netherlands (Holland), colonizing regions in the Antilles of the West
Indies; and the United States of America (USA) colonizing the Hawaii Islands
and Puerto Rico.   Mind you, a great number of these nations who drew up the
UN Charter-Universal Declaration on Human Rights, in fact, at that period of
time were in violation or contravening the very law that they had designed
and signed to protect Human Rights.  These same nations were still
colonizing the African Continent, and were the same nations who had brutally
enslaved African people for over 400 years, causing the deaths of no less
than 210 million Black Africans throughout the period of the Atlantic Slave
Trade (Source: UNESCO Summary Conference, January 31st through February 4th,
1978, Porte au Prince, Haiti; New African Magazine, March 2000, No. 383,
page 8, London).   Is this not the highest degree of hypocrisy and the
epitome of liars?   Yes it is!    These Aryan-white Europeans and Americans
were signing such a Historic Document, while at the same time, "Illegally"
occupying African sovereign land, as well as violating African peoples'
Human Rights.

Today, all African people around the world must challenge each year this UN
Charter-Universal Declaration on Human Rights on December 10th, since Black
Africans are the only human beings, to date, who have been denied this
"Inalienable" right for over 400 years.   Moreover, not one iota of
Reparations nor Compensation has ever been rewarded to any African on the
Continent nor in the Diaspora by these culprit nations for the crimes they
committed against African people.   In furtherance of African people having
a legitimate claim for Reparations (Compensation) against the
European/American enslavers and colonizers, last year, the UN-World
Conference Against Racism (WCAR) held in Durban, South Africa (August 28th
through September 7th, 2001) officially issued its Declaration stating that
the "Trans Atlantic Slave Trade" is a "Crime Committed Against Humanity".

However, even though the UN-WCAR in Durban, South Africa finally ended with
a Declaration, it was not without shameful controversy.    The USA
delegation within the first couple of days into the Conference, turned its
hind-parts to the UN organizers and its 2500 non-governmental organizations,
representing people of colour throughout the world, who had been enslaved
and/or colonized by Europeans and Americans.   The USA delegation blatantly
refused to even acknowledge its role in slavery and colonization.   Also,
the European nations' official delegations threaten to walkout if the final
draft of the Declaration did not indemnify them (free them) from being
responsible to financially pay African people who they enslaved and
colonized.
Simply put, they refused to pay African people Reparations (Compensation) as
a result of enslaving and colonizing them for over 400 years.   However,
they "Agreed" in writing to "Apologize" to African people for causing their
enslavement and colonization.   How hypocritical this is.   This does not
make any logical sense at all.  The criminal admits his guilt of the crime
and apologize, but refuses to pay any financial compensation to the injured
victim(s).   This is truly a big "wake-up call!" to all Black African
people, letting you know the "mindset" of Aryan-white Europeans and
Americans, in terms of how they view the Black African race.   So let us
Africans not forget that our time has come by speaking out under the theme
below on December 10th.

"European/American Enslavement & Colonization Of African People Is A Human
Rights Abuse, Lest We Forget!"

African Venezuelans fear new U.S. coup against President Chavez
Written by Professor Alejandro Correa of Barlovento, Venezuela with
assistance from Willie Thompson, Professor emeritus City College of San
Francisco

This article appeared in the Venezuela and Chavez Watch page of
Trinicenter.com.

This month, for the first time in history, Venezuelan people of African
descent have total control of their historic Black university, the
Instituto Universitario Barlovento. They are already planning a university
administered hotel and a restaurant for students, faculty and the
community. This is an achievement of a lifetime, and the people of
Barlovento gather around their seat of higher learning to reflect on their
success.

Another topic on their minds and hearts is the fate of President Hugo
Chavez. He is Venezuela's first multiracial president and is called "Negro"
(nigger) by his detractors because of his African-Indigenous features.
Behind the enemies of Venezuela and Hugo Chavez are very large sums of
money being spent to destroy the dreams of the people who historically have
been discriminated against because of race, economic ideas, etc.

These dreams of the African Venezuelan people may be deferred if the United
States replaces Chavez with a rightwing businessman as president.
Currently, three Blacks are state governors elected by the people; the
secretary of education is Black; two Indigenous Venezuelans are
congresspersons elected directly by the people; Indigenous Venezuelans have
the complete right to claim their historic lands; land is protected and
available to Black and Indigenous Venezuelan farmers so that they can now
engage in farming for the first time in generations; and Venezuelans of
African descent are participating in conferences against racism around the
world and establishing strategic relationships with international
organizations. They have attended Congressional Black Caucus conferences in
2000, 2001 and 2002; the pre-conference against racism in Chile in 2000;
and the United Nations World Conference Against Racism in Durban, South
Africa, in 2001. The African Venezuelan community in Barlovento also hosted
the Second International Reunion of the African Latin Family in 1999.

Sixty percent of the population of Venezuela are people of African descent.
The others are Mestizos of Indigenous and European descent and Indigenous.
The support of the people of African descent in the United States is one of
the most strategic factors in helping the people of African descent survive
and prosper in Venezuela.

President Hugo Chavez was elected in a democratic election with more than
70 percent of the 11 million votes cast. One of his first actions was to
call for an election of a National Constituency Assembly whose mission was
to reform the 1969 national Constitution. During 40 years of democracy this
Constitution was used to avoid empowering the people. The election of the
National Constituency Assembly allowed the participation of students,
business related organizations, community representatives and parties
opposed to the president in the Assembly. The entire society had its
opportunity in the Assembly.

The National Constituency Assembly designed a new national constitution,
which was widely discussed all around the country. Then a national election
was called to consider the acceptance of the new constitution. The
Venezuelan people, in direct election, said, "We do accept the new
constitution" in 1999. New national elections were called at all levels of
government to test the acceptance of the new constitution and renegotiate
the public powers. President Hugo Chavez, again, won the election with over
one million votes more than his closest opponent. The party supporting
Chavez also won, as did several state governors who belonged to the party.

During his three years in power - the complete term is six years -
President Chavez has been an advocate for the education of the poor. After
50 years of being eliminated, schools were created with full schedules from
8 a.m. to 4 p.m., allowing children to stay longer in recreational programs
and special classes.

Never before have small businesses flourished with the full support of the
government at the local and national levels. Chavez has opened the doors
for the participation of those who have long been excluded.

When President Chavez came to power, 80 percent of the population lived
below poverty. Overcoming this difficult obstacle requires a joint effort
at all levels of society. Unfortunately, the support has not echoed in the
upper economic brackets of Venezuelan society. What have they done?
Organizing a coup is not the way to support the government.

Venezuela is the fourth largest oil producer in the world and the second
largest oil exporter to the United States. President Chavez has never
threatened the export of oil to the U.S. He has visited the U.S. about five
times, holding meetings with businesspersons, seeking to stimulate foreign
investment in Venezuela in order to raise the level of employment and
mitigate the conditions of the poor.

Unfortunately, the sectors of society wanting to reverse these important
advances decided to violate Venezuelan democracy. A group of renegade
military generals formed a coalition with "businessmen" - land owners whose
ancestors stole it from Indigenous Venezuelans and used enslaved African
labor to build the Venezuelan economy and society.

Some members of the press also belong to the business establishment. Three
main private TV stations led a campaign against the evolution of democratic
change in the same style Hitler used against the Jews: "Say a lie a
thousand times and everybody will believe it as a truth."

These forces formed a coup to destroy freedom in Venezuela. For three days
they controlled the government and instituted practices not seen in
Venezuela since the '50s, during the days of the military rulers.
Venezuelans in their 60s were astonished to see such violations of civil
rights.

Leaders of the coup imprisoned President Chavez, isolating him from any
public contact, lying about a presidential resignation, dissolving all
legitimate national powers at all levels. Then they started hunting down
the legitimate members of Congress and of the president's cabinet. Even the
Supreme Court was forced to resign. They did all that in a period of three
days. Further, they derogated the 1999 constitution.

In response, however, people of all races and backgrounds took to the
streets, the military bases and public buildings to liberate President
Chavez. He is in control again.

Venezuelans watched with deep concern how Ari Fleisher, Bush's press
secretary, and Condoleezza Rice, Bush's defense advisor - a Black woman -
avoided calling the coup against President Chavez what it really was: a
vulgar, right wing coup against a democratic government. Both have used
vague rhetoric to criticize Chavez' administration rather than condemn the
coup. The Bush administration in general looked with sympathy at the coup
and issued no declaration condemning it.

The New York Times also has presented the facts in a less than objective
way. Rather than going into the countryside to talk with the people, Times
reporters appear to have visited only the Caracas suburbs to assess public
opinion. Furthermore, the local media consider only the opinions of wealthy
people. All other opinions are considered unworthy. So, if you are poor or
if you are not in agreement with the media, then you are not considered a
part of the public opinion.

U.S. Senator Christopher Dodd has expressed dismay over the Bush
administration's behavior regarding the situation in Venezuela. His
position is an example of goodwill and is appreciated by Venezuelans.

There's an international effort to destroy the public image of President
Chavez. Let us briefly analyze it.

1) Hugo Chavez has visited Iraq, Iran and Libya. Because he is a friend of
those nations, he is branded an enemy of the United States. Venezuela and
the countries visited by President Chavez are members of the Organization
of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). Together with these countries,
Venezuela regulates oil prices and must agree with them on strategies for
maintaining profitability while at the same time making prices affordable
to the oil importing countries such as the U.S. With 60 percent of its
national budget based on oil income, clearly Venezuela must talk with
members of OPEC. This doesn't make Venezuela a partner in terrorism as has
been insinuated by the U.S. and the media.

2) Hugo Chavez is a friend of Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro. It is
insinuated that he is therefore an enemy of the U.S. Venezuela is a free
and self-determining nation in its business relations with Cuba. It has a
right to have business relations with China or any other country.

3) It is said that Hugo Chavez didn't condemn the attacks on the World
Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, and is therefore an enemy of the U.S. But
President Chavez most certainly did condemn the Sept. 11 attacks and said,
just as France and Russia and the Pope did, that he doesn't support a heavy
and indiscriminate attack against Afghanistan which might cause civilian
casualties. The Bush administration considers neither the presidents of
France and Russia nor the Pope as enemies of the U.S. and is not willing to
plan and finance a coup against those leaders because they express
humanitarian points of view.

4) President Chavez is said to be a supporter of the Colombian guerrillas
and is therefore involved in terrorism. The truth is that President Chavez
has condemned terrorism in Colombia. Furthermore, the Venezuelan government
under his administration has been a mediator in peace talks between the
guerrillas and the Colombian government.

5) The people of the U.S. should think deeply about U.S. support of the
failed coup and its leaders and its plans to change the regime in
Venezuela. The result of President Chavez' trip to oil exporting countries
was agreement on a solid oil price. In Venezuela, the price of oil is
extremely important for education, health care and public services
generally. The first declaration of the leaders of the failed coup was the
abandonment of the quota system, which caused oil prices to drop.

Writer's note: Africans and people of African descent are beginning to tell
our own story. Most other people have no vested interest in telling the
truth about us. Professor Correa of Barloyento University is an African
Venezuelan, and he tells the story of the achievements of African
Venezuelans, the United States' participation in the failed attempt to
overthrow President Chavez, and the certain reversal of the social,
economic, cultural and psychological gains to African Venezuelans if
President Chavez is overthrown. He pleads with us to:

1) discuss in open forums, churches and community organizations the U.S.
attacks on Venezuela and the conditions there, and

2) write letters to the U.S. Congress asking that the U.S. respect the
Venezuelan government and follow the rule of law and international treaties
in dealing with Venezuela.

The attack on Colin Powell prompts questions I'm not supposed to ask

   By Dave Duffy



   What's wrong with black Americans?

   Provocative question, isn't it, especially when it's being asked by a

   white guy like me. We white guys aren't supposed to question what
   blacks do, because it automatically makes us a racist. Which brings
   up another obvious question: How come blacks can criticize whites,
   calling them honkies and racists at the drop of a hat, but whites
   can't criticize blacks?

   Let me break my first question down into some smaller, more obvious
   questions:

   How come when Harry Belafonte recently called Secretary of State
   Colin Powell "a house slave" for serving in the Bush administration,
   few blacks came to Powell's defense? Is it because they resented
   Powell's heroic climb from the slums of New York to chairman of the
   Joint Chiefs of Staff, then to the inner circle of the White House,
   without asking for any special treatment along the way?

   How about when Congress was interrogating Clarence Thomas some years
   back during his confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court. When a
   lone woman accused Thomas of sexual impropriety, black leaders joined

   in the attack with a fury. But later, when Clinton was accused of the

   same thing and worse, by many women with many corroborating
   witnesses, blacks came to Clinton's defense? When Thomas was
   exonerated and confirmed, his accuser, Anita Hill, went on the
   speaking circuit for years attacking Justice Thomas, but few blacks
   criticized her. Clinton was impeached over his improprieties, but
   just the other day he became the first white man to be inducted into
   the Arkansas Black Hall of Fame as an honorary member.

   What gives? Is it because Clarence Thomas was another black heroic
   figure who broke ranks and rose to the pinnacles of the justice
   system by his own determination and hard work, and Clinton has always

   been the white crusader wanting ever more free federal dollars for
   downtrodden blacks?

   How about the O.J. Simpson affair? Simpson brutally murdered two
   innocent people. DNA tests proved it, and overwhelming evidence
   proved it. Yet a mainly black jury voted him "not guilty," and we all

   witnessed the TV scenes of crowds of blacks cheering wildly when the
   verdict was announced. Did they cheer because Simpson had killed two
   whites and got away with it? Sure looked like it!

   Why did 85% of black congress people vote against America going to
   war with Iraq 10 years ago, and why do Congressional blacks now hold
   rallies against us going to war with Iraq again? They claim it's
   because blacks represent a larger percentage of the armed forces so
   it is they who will be asked to die. But I think that's just cover
   for the real reason, namely that they think America is the villain in

   this showdown. They empathize with Iraq as the underdog, just as they

   perceive themselves as the underdog in America. It's America they
   hate, not Iraq.

   And here's a really racist question: Why haven't blacks assimilated
   completely into American society, even after the federal government
   has spent more than $700 billion dollars on the poor-largely on poor
   blacks-since former President Lyndon Johnson vastly expanded welfare
   with his War on Poverty nearly 40 years ago? Irish people like me
   have assimilated, and my immigrant ancestors were valued below slaves

   when they arrived on the boats in places like New York and New
   Orleans at the height of their great flight from Irish hunger a
   century ago. And millions of Mexicans are assimilating right before
   our eyes. Is it really because racism continues to keep blacks down,
   or is it their own fault, a fault that mainly has to do with their
   desire-or lack of it-to stand on their own two feet?

   These are all terrible questions for a white man to ask, I know. I
   must indeed be a racist to bring these things up.

   But I can't help it. When I watch Colin Powell, one of the greatest
   Americans of my lifetime, being viciously attacked by activists like
   Belafonte, with people like Jesse Jackson and Spike Lee joining in, I

   feel like screaming: What are you fools doing?

   Powell is a black man who has lived the American Dream. He didn't do
   it with the federal handouts that have done nothing for blacks but
   make them a permanent underclass in America. He did it by himself.
   Why aren't you rising in outrage against Belafonte and the rest of
   the attackers. Isn't this what the War on Poverty was all about, to
   make sure poor people, especially poor black people, could take part
   in the American Dream?

   Of course we all, in our bitter, racist, heart of hearts, know the
   answer to all my questions. Black heroes like Colin Powell and
   Clarence Thomas believe in the wrong ideology. They believe in self-
   reliance. They are renegades from a liberal ideology that says blacks

   can't take care of themselves. Rather than criticize those blacks who

   have made themselves a success, blacks should feel ashamed that they,

   as a race, have wandered in the wilderness from one type of slavery
   only to find another: the new nanny state of black slavery, with
   Jesse Jackson and a host of white bureaucrats directing how all the
   welfare freebies are to be divied up. But step out of line, as Powell

   and Thomas did, and they'll be after your ass with a vengeance,
   accusing you of every crime in the book and calling you the white
   man's house slave. That's about as ironic as it gets!

   My Irish immigrant mother has some advice for black Americans: She
   gave it to me in the 1950s when I was a boy in all Irish South
   Boston. I had been boasting about how great it was to be Irish. She
   told me curtly: "You are not Irish, you are American. Act like it!"

The ongoing attack on People in the attached article prompts questions
I'm not supposed to ask.

  What's wrong with Europeans?


  Why is it okay for Europeans to feel entitled to other people's lands
around the globe yet not okay to acknowledge this for the ongoing racist
imperialism that it actually is? Why is it not okay to speak out against
and oppose this blantant exercise of terrorism?

  Why is it that Europeans have still failed to assimilate into the
cultures of this land even though they've been here for well over 500
years? If they had wanted to remain Europeans, why didn't they just
remain in Europe?

  Why is it that Europeans love to claim how fair things are even though
their own published reports reveal the ongoing racial discrimination in
the legal system, the lending institutions, education, and even the just
plain marketing of common services?

  Why is that?

  Am I racist for asking these questions?

  Are Europeans not racists for blissfully choosing to ignore such
questions?

Why Clear Channel is Irrelevant for Indies - by Bryan Farrish

After endless concerns in the indie community about radio consolidation
and
Clear Channel, I'm here to tell you that it should be of no concern to
you.
Regular rotation on large stations (Clear Channel or otherwise) in major
or
medium markets is not available now ... nor has it ever been ... (for
over
30 years) to small indie releases and artists any more than McDonalds is
available to you to market your indie toys. Remember McDonalds' 10-year
marketing agreement with Disney? Before it happened, do you think you had
any chance at all of getting your indie toy into McDonalds? That
situation
is the equivalent of you trying to get your indie release into regular
rotation on medium and major stations. Consolidation or no consolidation,
trying to get a product with entry-level marketing onto the largest media
outlets in the world is a terribly-misplanned idea. (This applies, of
course, to new acts/labels releasing their first or second record on
their
own.)

So why all the hoopla? Because news outlets know that you'll read it. And
when you read it, they get paid. News outlets (like the LA Times and
salon.com) need to print things that you are worried about, so you will
log
on and/or purchase copies, or else they will close down. Since the worse
fear of all musicians is not having their music heard, if the
publications
tell you how the biggest radio stations are not going to play you, they
know
you will pay attention and read.

But just because you are just now learning how difficult the large
stations
are, does not mean that it used to be any easier. Fact is, if you were
trying to release your own record (even on AM radio) in the '60s and
'70s,
you would have been going directly up against Capitol, RCA, ABC,
Atlantic,
CBS, and the other major labels at the time. So even then (with no Clear
Channel), you would have had to start off with the smaller stations, just
like you have to today. And also back then (20 years before the
McDonalds-Disney agreement), you would never have been able to get
McDonalds
to carry/market your indie toy; but you can bet that the toy industry
publications back then did their best to paint a depressing picture for
the
small toy manufacturers, despite the fact that the best way for an indie
toy
makers to market its toys (both then and now) is to work with the mom and
pop toy stores throughout the country.

What does this mean for your airplay? The same thing we've been trying to
get across for years: Start with small market commercial stations (or
college stations in any market), and use the results to book more and
bigger
gigs, all the while selling your CDs and merch for full price at those
gigs.
You'll never have to deal with getting distribution (or getting paid from
distribution), much less have to worry that you won't be getting any
regular
rotation on a Clear Channel station. If you absolutely won't rest until
you
get some Clear Channel spins, however, then consider commercial
specialty/mix shows ... These shows are available on Clear Channel
stations
from New York on down, and with good music and a good push, you can get a
spin or two for a few weeks.

The following are a list of things, which I hope will help you see clearly

 the roots of the name Africa:

1.  What is now known as Egyptian hieroglyphics was born out of Hamitic Ethiopian Hieroglyphics.

2.  In both the Hamitic Ethiopian and the Egyptian hieroglyphics, Af meant flesh, Ra meant God, and Ka meant double or spiritual double.  Since our Heavenly Father Heru was recognized as the God of the earth, he was given the title Af-ra-ka, which meant that he was recognized as the Flesh of God's Double on earth.

3.  Genesis 11:1 tells us that there was a time when the whole earth was one language.  Though there has never been a time when the whole earth was one language, there was a time when the Hamitic language groups dominate all of northeast Africa and the Middle-East, and parts of India.  Remember that Nimrod was the grandson of Ham, as in the Hamitic language.  After the fall of Nimrod's Babylon (Hamitic Ethiopian Babylon), many Arabs began to translate the legacy and remnants of the Gospel of Heru in their own languages.  Heru and his Black (or Hamitic) descendants retained the title Afraka, the flesh of Ra's double.  Ultimately the entire Black race became known as Africans. Even the Indo-European Jews, when translating their version of the original Hebrew language, recognized Heru's (or Adam's) descendants as the Sons of God, which stemmed from them original that identified them as the flesh of God's double, Afraka (Genesis 6:1-4).

4. 
Even before the discovery of the Rosetta Stone, there was much confusion concerning the vowel sounds in the original Hamitic Ethiopian hieroglyphics  So much so, that Indo-European Jews, when formulating their version of Hebrew, dismissed writing vowel sounds all together.  Now (even after the discovery of the Rosetta Stone) there is still much confusion concerning the vowel sounds that were in the original Hamitic Ethiopian hieroglyphics  Even to this day Egyptologists aren't sure if the God of the Hamitic Ethiopian and Egyptians was named Ra or Re.  It doesn't take an Einstein to figure out how Afraka became known as Afrika or Africa.




I sincerely hope and pray that this additional information on where Africa came from will help some of my pitiful but still beloved Ethiopian brothers and sisters, who still appear hopelessly and eternally dependent upon Europeans to tell them who they are and providing them with any and all knowledge of themselves.   Should shameful behavior makes it easy to understand why so many Black children grow up ashamed of being Black, and send all their lives trying to be what God created someone else to be rather than what they were created to be.


1. 5th Chapter of Genesis

a.  The 5th Chapter of Genesis tells us that the descedants of Adam (or Heru) lived as long as 900 years plus.  A minimal amount of knowledge about the physiology and anatomy of the human body, and just a little commonsense should tell us that Moses must have been referring to something other than how long they lived in the flesh.  From the Gospel of Heru, many of his male descendants developed ministries that reigned a long time in places like Ethiopia, Yemem, Oman, India, Sri Lanka, Khartoum, Meroe, Napata, Jebel Barkal, Karima, Thebes, etc.  before they were brought to Memphis.  Moses recorded the life-span of their ministeries as the number of years they lived.   The 5th Chapter of Genesis also tells us that the descendants of Heru were still fathering children well passed two hundred years of age.  When the minsiteries of Heru's descendants were translated into a new language, Moses recorded it as them having sons and daughters.  In Memphis, these written ministeries became the foundation of the first four Hamitic Ethiopian Egyptian dynasties.  There they also became the world's first Library of Congress and predecessor to the Alexandrian Library in the Delta region of Egypt. 

The most powerful language group, into which the Gospel of Heru was translated, was the Cushite language groups.  For thousands of years, the Hamitic roots of the literal Cushite language groups remained dominant.  Thus many of the origianl Hamitic words, like Af, Ra, and Ka, retained their original form and meaning.  However, because there were so many different translations, many distorted versions of the original Gospel of Heru took root in Egypt.  Nevertheless, today we can still read through the many distortions to find the truth.

2.  Volume 1 "The Gods of The Egyptians" by E. A. Wallis Budge

Page 228 informs us that there is a flesh of Ra on earth called Af-Ra .
Page 206 tells us that Ra, in the form of Af , is the Sun of Night, which is Black Light (or Black Intelligence), the Original Light of Creation.  We are also told that Heru-Hekenu, Hu, and the Ka (double) of Shu are with the flesh of Ra in the boat that sails over the heavens.  Shu was originally known as Hehu, from which came the He-hu-ba-ru (the Hebrews).   Hehu was an atomic component of Creation and the physical body of Ra known today as a proton.  Since Hehu was called the Ka of Shu, there must have been anti-protons that made up Ra's body of Black Light.

Page 257 tells us that to say Af was drawn by a loyal servant is the same as saying Ra was drawn by the servant.  Thus there was an obvious Af-Ra-Ka.

Page 274 is for those who doubt that the Indo-European Jews developed their concept of God from the remnants of the Gospel of Heru they found in Egypt, which also contained the history of the He-hu-ba-ru, the original Hebrews.  On page 274, we learn that the Seven Mansions are ruled, under Dumah, by three angels, one of whom is called Af.   Another angel was called Khema in Indo-European Jewish Hebrew, which no doubt came from a mis-translation of Khnemu, a name given to Heru in Northern Nubia and Thebes.  This is just a tiny bit of evidence amidst tons of evidence on the subject of where the Indo-European Jews got their concept of God.

WORD FOR TODAY

CHURCH OF EPHESUS vs. EPITOME'S E2 NIGHTCLUB



Chicago to File Charges in Club Stampede

By MIKE ROBINSON
Associated Press Writer


CHICAGO (AP) -- The city will file criminal contempt charges against the owners of the nightclub where 21 people were killed in a stampede, because a court had ordered the club to be closed, Mayor Richard M. Daley said Tuesday.

"This tragedy is especially heartbreaking, first because the victims were so young," Daley said. "Secondly, because it was a disaster that absolutely should never have happened."

Daley and other city officials rejected the contention by owners of the E2 nightclub that they had a deal to stay open, despite a list of building code violations including failure to provide enough exits.

"Obviously these people were intent on breaking the law, and they broke the law," city corporation counsel Mara Georges said at a late morning news conference.

Hundreds of people packed into the second-floor E2 club on the city's South Side stampeded down a stairwell early Monday after security guards broke up a fight and someone sprayed pepper gas or Mace. A lawyer for the club operators suggested someone might have shouted a warning about a terrorist attack...

The club was operated by Le Mirage All-Night Studio Inc., which also owned the Epitome restaurant downstairs...

6. NEW JERUSALEM CHURCH OF EPHESUS

The primary function of New Jerusalem Church of Ephesus is to manage the restoration of African divinity. The history of African divinity can be found in the one of The Five Books of Emmanuel entitled "The Spiritual Evolution of Man--Beginning With Heru." As the primary function of this church, the restoration of African divinty is also the restoration of the history of God on earth, and the restoration of the original Hebrew (or He-hu-ba-ru) faith and Messianic (or Maashua) faith from their origins in Africa to their most glorious developments and evolution in Jerusalem (or Heru-sa-tem) and Israel. This church is to be headquartered in
Chicago.



Is there a relationship between the fire at Epitome's E2 Nightclub and Church of Ephesus, and its proposed location in Chicago?  Is there a relationship between the ungodliness and filthiness of the E2 Nightclub and the holiness and righteousness of the Church of Ephesus?

"The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with
FIRE and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:"
"And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name."

If Afrikans Were White
By Kwaku Person-Lynn, Ph.D.

When people think of Afrika, it is generally a highly negative view born
out of and perpetuated during slavery and colonialism: illiterate, no
history, savage, bestial, no written language, wild and good only for
safaris. This distorted perception prevents humanity from knowing about its
most important place related to its origin and an organizational structure
we all live in, civilization.

In the 1960s, rock music became the rage among the white flower power
generation. It was the musical anthem among white youth as hip hop is among
all youth today. A curious thing happened along the way though. White youth
wanted to know the genesis of rock music. It had developed a subculture as
all musical revolutions do. When the white youth, musicians, critics and
journalists searched for the musical roots of the music they loved, it led
them straight to artists of Afrikan descent who played the blues. After all,
rock music is nothing but electrified blues. A renaissance of recognition
was created among black blues players, because white youth had discovered
and patronized them. This also happened during the so-called Harlem
Renaissance.

The exact same thing could happen in the study of Afrikan world
civilizations. If one wanted to know about the history of their family,
shouldn't one also want to know about the history of their species? If the
original people to come out of Afrika were white, Afrika today would be the
top tourist package in the world. The most popular tourist attraction of all
time would be to see who could find the exact place where the original human
being evolved from, whereas today, that endeavor is left only to specialized
scientists.

The Nile Valley would be so overbooked that reservations would have to be
made years in advance. People would want to see and study how the world's
first advanced civilization developed during the ancient period. The
pyramids would be studied 100 fold compared to the present. Thousands of
people would want to know the engineering techniques used, without the
benefit of today's machinery and technology. Mathematicians would want to
know how they created the algebra, geometry, physics and calculus used in
the design (creation of architecture) and construction, even before there
was a place called Europe, Greece or Rome.

Politicians and civil servants would flock to know how such a civilization
could create the world's first public works project in building the
pyramids: organizing, cooking, feeding, housing, sanitation, payment,
medical, recreation, water supply in a desert, transportation, and a host of
other related items.

Medical professionals and researchers would comb the continent to discover
how medicine and medications became so advanced before the western world
even knew of the concept of medicine and the healing arts. Everyone would
want to know how these people in Afrika, if they had been white, came about
studying the particles and functions of substances that ultimately became
the science of chemistry.

Religious people and theologians would take a much more critical look at
the early Kemetic (Egyptian) literary work, The Book Of Coming Forth By Day
And By Night, which some scholars see as the precursor to the Bible, because
of the similarity of stories such as the immaculate conception and
resurrection related to Ausar (Osiris), Auset (Isis) and Heru (Horus), which
now refers to Mary and Jesus.

Objects such as the wheel, which allowed the Kemetic chariots to roll
hundreds of years before the Roman version, would be cherished collectors'
items. Temples showing the first calendar, number system, time instrument,
flood indicator, medical instruments, harvesting tools, musical instruments,
childbirth techniques and a host of other human ingenuities would be studied
in every educational institution.

World history, if the original Afrikans were white, would be ten times more
expansive and required than it is today. There would no longer be efforts to
hide how Afrikans established civilizations all over Asia, including India,
China and Japan. Europe would not have separated from Asia and would proudly
promote that Afrikans established the first civilization there. There would
not be such criticism about Afrikans sailing to the Americas hundreds of
years before Columbus. In fact, America may have been called New Afrika, as
America's founding fathers attempted to make Washington D.C., New Egypt.

What would not be such a secret today, Afrika holds the key to
industrialized civilizations. It possesses natural resources found nowhere
else on the planet. Europe would probably starve if Afrika did not serve as
its food basket. Western countries are now politically maneuvering around
Afrika to reap the benefits of its massive oil reserves. Nuclear and missile
programs could not exist without certain minerals that can only be attained
in Afrika.

Although the original Afrikans, who were Black, accomplished all of the
magnificent accomplishments previously mentioned, they are not studied with
the intensity and interest they would if the original Afrikans were white.
This is a major tragedy in the world, academia and public education, because
it could eliminate many of the negative stereotypes associated with Afrika
and its descendents. Until the history of Afrika and its place in world
development is seen equally as any other human history, we will continue to
suffer from a basic one-sided view of the world, fueled by the greatest
collective mental illness known to humanity, white supremacy: racism.

"The oppression of women in Africa today is rooted in the culture of male
domination and chauvinism that came with Europeans to our continent. They
were all men."

Take the Yoruba for example; women have always been in charge of commerce
and the markets for commodities. Thus, most Yoruba women are usually
financially independent of their husbands or male family members, and not
infrequently, actually more wealthy.

The Ijebu and the Egba allow female heads of family, and Yoruba families
never take decisions without due consultation with the women folk of the
family. Women have also ruled as monarchs in several Yoruba kingdoms, and
stories of female heroes who came to the rescue their communities at the
time of need  abound.

Subject: AFRICA CULTURE ALLOWS WOMEN TO RULE

By Vimbai Gukwe Chivaura

AFRICANS have been told that their culture is undemocratic. It oppresses
women, as it regards them as inferior to men and excludes them from
positions of power and leadership in government institutions, social
organizations, business professions and the family.

Africans have been, therefore, urged to abandon their culture and choose the
"better and democratic" cultures of Europe and America or come up with new
ones of their own making.

The carriers of this gospel are usually non-governmental organizations,
international human rights organizations and special groups of Africans
themselves. Their funding usually comes from similar organizations in
Europe, America, Australia or Britain.

The venues where they meet to deliver the good news are usually hotels,
conference centers, schools and also the churches.

The media they use to carry the message to the public are the radio,
television, newspapers, cinema, pamphlets, leaflets and posters.

Their method is to repeat the message over and over again until Africans
have no choice but to believe it is true. Those who may be still in doubt
are simply asked to open their eyes, look all over Africa and see for
themselves what the African man is doing to the African woman in the name of
African culture.

The trick is never to allow Africans time to go back to their history and
seriously examine their culture and see whether the oppression of African
women was also happening then.

This would be the only way we can prove their allegations to be true or
false. So, let's go back to our history and do exactly that.

Women in African culture were held as supreme. They were centers of the
African family and custodians of the grain. Their titles and statuses were
equal to those of our Ministers of Home Affairs, Agriculture and Finance and
Governors of the Reserve Bank, today.

Families without mothers were regarded as orphaned families. But families
without fathers could still survive with the mother as the sole breadwinner.

This is still the case in African culture today. Fathers could be easily
replaced, not mothers. Anyone could become your father. You only have to
take your mother's word for it.

Men who insult their mothers for infidelity could be insulting their own
fathers. They have to go to their mothers' families to apologize and also
pay heavily for it. That is why Africans say, "Never insult your mother".
She is the only one who knows your identity.

Identity is always both maternal and paternal in African culture. It follows
the principle of gender balance. Africans follow this logic in all the
affairs of their lives. They, therefore, include women as co-leaders in
planning and running the affairs of the state or nation.

Our first example is Nyamhita. She ruled together with her brother, Mutota.
She was the queen and he was the king. But her powers were greater than
Mutota's.

They were both religious and political. She was, therefore, the supreme
overseer of the land. The destiny of the nation lay in her hands. David
Livingstone described her as supernatural.

She parted the waters of the Zambezi, like Moses, and let her people pass.
David Livingstone and his soldiers were left dumbfounded.

Nyamhita was special in another special sense. She was a remarkable
rainmaker for the nation. She ensured that the soil was fertile and the crop
and harvest were good for her people.

Nyamhita also shared political duties and responsibilities with her brother,
Mutota. She was directly in charge of the Handa Province as Governor and
became popularly known as Nehanda, which means, Governor of Handa (Mudenge
122-123)

Another example was Charwe. She was Nyamhita's successor. She was directly
inspired by her and also became known as Nehanda. Her powers were supreme
like those of Nyamhita.

They were both political and religious. The destiny of the nation lay in her
hands. She understood this and took up the challenge and led the First
Chimurenga.

She was the de facto commander-in-chief of the armed forces of Zimbabwe. She
never compromised her stance against all forms of white domination,
including Christianity.

She refused to be baptised into the faith of her invaders and murderers and
was hanged on Wednesday April 27 1898, between 6 and 10 pm.

Her last words were: "My bones shall rise again." The prophecy came true in
1965 when Zimbabweans invoked her to launch the Second Chimurenga that led
to independence on April 18 1980. This was the month she prophesied the
Second Chimurenga and was killed (Mazikana 196).

Queen Nzinga is another illustrious African woman leader. She ruled Angola
from 1622 to 1663. She was commander-in-chief of its armed forces. She
shared power with her brother, Alphonso.

She removed him later from power for getting involved in the slave trade and
selling out the strategy of the struggle to the Portuguese. She was a brave
and fearless commander and soldier. The Portuguese called her "a
death-defying queen". They called Angola "a region of black terror". Their
report to the king of Portugal was as follows:

"Who ever heard of a woman general leading her armies in person? She is the
greatest military strategist that ever confronted the armed forces of
Portugal.

"Her tactics keep our commanders sweating and confused. Her aim is total
destruction of the slave trade. She has developed a system of infiltrating
our black troops with her men. This has caused whole companies to rebel and
desert to join her armies in what she calls A War of Liberation.

"Portuguese casualties are always heavier than reported. She stages surprise
attacks with lightning speed. She always aims first to capture guns and
cannons. We now surround ourselves with armed guards on long marches, for we
never know how many of our black soldiers are the queen's own men." (Ibid.
256-257).

Chancellor Williams wrote the following tribute to Queen Nzinga: "In Queen
Nzinga's death, Africa lost her greatest daughter and the slaves their
greatest emancipator. One of the incisive and accurate indictments she made
against slavery and the slave trade was that 'the real savages in Africa
were whites'."

Chancellor Williams adds that: "What makes Nzinga even greater was her
declaration in 1624 that 'all territory over which she had control was free
country. All slaves reaching it from whatever quarters were forever free'.
She banned the use of black soldiers by whites and was the first and only
black leader in history ever known to undertake such a task" (Ibid. 261-
265).

There would be no Chaka without Nandi, his mother. She was the Queen Mother
and he was the King. Her powers were supreme and greater than those of her
son. They were spiritual and political like those of her Zimbabwean
counterparts, Nyamhita and Charwe.

The whole nation looked up to her for guidance in their struggle against
European invasion. They therefore needed a strong and fearless leader to
defend them and repulse the enemy.

In Nandi the nation found both a kingmaker and a Queen Mother. She begot
Chaka and raised and trained him to become a shrewd political and military
genius the African continent has ever had. The British feared his genius and
demonised him as a wizard.

Chaka inherited his mother's genius and lived up to his people's
expectations and included women in his army. Here is what the Portuguese
said about them:

"We could not have imagined that a nation we termed savages could be so
disciplined and kept in order. Regiments of girls, headed by officers of
their sex, entered the centre of the arena to the number of 8 000-10 000,
each holding a slight staff in her hand" (Walker 108).

The Great Mutapa also had a great number of women in his army and some who
were his own personal guards (Jackson 186-187). The argument that African
culture oppressed women and excluded them from power is, therefore,
baseless.

The oppression of women in Africa today is rooted in the culture of male
domination and chauvinism that came with Europeans to our continent. They
were all men.

The institutions they set up as men, for men, are responsible for spreading
that practice among our people in Africa and must be overhauled.

Beware the Violence Initiative Project

Beware the Violence Initiative Project -
Coming Soon to an Inner City Near You
by Mitchel Cohen,
Brooklyn Greens/Green Party of NY & the Red Balloon Collective

It is proper to focus on blacks and other minorities as they are over-represented in the courts and not well studied.
  - Gail Wasserman, Ph.D., from her funding proposal to establish a "behavioral disorders" center at Columbia University's Department of Child Psychiatry.



Unemployment runs in the genes just like bad teeth.   - Richard Herrnstein, Princeton University, co-author of The Bell Curve.

As late as the 1980s, a number of U.S. and European scientists were still claiming that Black people, Latinos and American Indians are less intelligent than Caucasians. (Asians were left out of the mix.) Intelligence, they said, ran in the genes along racial lines. Some scientists are now proposing that violence is an hereditary characteristic of Black and Latino people and that, unlike the case with genetic intelligence, something can be done about it. Scientists, they say, can control the alleged "genetic predisposition" to committing criminal acts of violence by medicating Black and Latino children before aggressive behavior and violence occur. Under the aegis of the federally-funded Violence Initiative Project (VIP), Gail Wasserman, a professor in Child Psychology at Columbia University, and Daniel Pine, a medical doctor associated with the same institution, are picking up where the utterly discredited racially-based intelligence theories of Jensen, Bernstein, Eysenck, Shockley and Murray leave off. The new proponents of genetic racism lead a team of researchers in performing numerous experiments, partly funded by federal dollars, on children as young as six years of age.

The new proponents of genetic racism lead a team of researchers in performing numerous experiments, partly funded by federal dollars, on children as young as six years of age.

In one "study" at the New York State Psychiatric Institute, 34 healthy boys, aged 6 to 10, were administered the drug fenfluramine, the primary ingredient in the diet drug fen-phen which has been banned by the US government. (1) The boys were all from impoverished families; 44% were African-American and 56% were Hispanic. The boys were made to fast for 12 hours prior to beginning, and during the test were allowed only water. An intravenous catheter was inserted and designed to remain in place for 5-1/2 hours. During that period an oral dose of the drug fenfluramine hydroxide was administered (10mg/kg). Blood was drawn hourly. Scandal swirled around the sale of fen-phen in the mid 1990s, as Federal Drug Administration studies showed that the drug caused severe heart-valve damage in as many as 30% of the adults who took it. (2) Fenfluramine was also shown to cause a fatal heart condition known as pulmonary hypertension. (3) Effects of a single dose of fenfluramine, writes the Albany-based Disability Advocates, Inc., "frequently included anxiety, fatigue, headache, lightheadedness, difficulty concentrating, visual impairment, diarrhea, nausea, a feeling of being 'high,' and irritability." (4) Ninety percent of adult subjects experienced side-effects from a single dose of fenfluramine. And studies done on rodents and monkeys have shown that a single dose of fenfluramine caused microscopic damage to brain cells. Despite the fact that the dangers had been well-established, the NY State Psychiatric Institute proceeded with administering fenfluramine to children in doses eight times higher than the amounts causing damage to monkeys' brains, even after the drug had been banned in September, 1997. In using that drug, the clinicians hypothesized, they could counter the alleged racially inherited genetic predisposition to aggressive behavior and violence by increasing serotonin levels in the brain. Some scientists have correlated lower than average serotonin levels with aggressive behavior. By increasing serotonin levels th rough medication, the researchers are claiming they could prevent the kids from committing future acts of violence, despite the fact that most of the children had not committed any acts of violence at all.

The children were selected because they each had an older sibling who had been ruled a delinquent by Family Court.

The children's names and addresses, which are supposed to be confidential and sealed, were (and continue to be) culled by government officials at the Department of Probation and the New York City Board of Education and passed along to Wasserman and Pine. The involvement of public officials became known due only to exposes in local newspapers. (5) Forced to reply, the NYC Board of Education denied that students had been referred for the purpose of participating in research, which would have been illegal. But the documents indicate that that is precisely what happened. In fact, writes Newsday, the Board's Committee on Special Education "worked closely with the researchers from the beginning." (6) And, as the Department of Probation itself has written, "We are participating in a Research Project being conducted by Professor Gail Wasserman, of Columbia University, regarding younger brothers of male offenders, in a [sic] effort to identify early predictors of anti-social behavior." (7)

By claiming genetic predisposition, psychiatrists are able to tap into the hundreds of millions of dollars available for genetic research...
...researchers from the New York State Psychiatric Institute have been experimenting on young minority children since 1992...under the rubric of the National Violence Initiative Project...

Pine, Wasserman and other researchers from the New York State Psychiatric Institute have been experimenting on young minority children since 1992. Similar experiments have been going on at Queens College and at Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York, and at facilities throughout the United States, under the rubric of the national Violence Initiative Project, supervised and funded through the National Institute of Mental Health. And the money is pouring in. By claiming genetic predisposition, psychiatrists are able to tap into the hundreds of millions of dollars available for genetic research - the latest claim for why people do anything - it's in the genes. The money, in turn, has fueled all sorts of similar "projects," including new methods for genetically frisking prisoners for "bad DNA," and for screening workers and denying them insurance. Some companies have fired workers because, they've been told, they suffer from genetic predisposition to certain diseases such as sickle cell anemia or breast cancer.

Far less in public resources are allocated towards researching the effects of toxic byproducts of industrial production and the chemicalization of agriculture in causing cancer, lead-poisoning and other immune-compromising "diseases." Instead, funding-and thus, blame-is shifted to an individual's (or ethnic/racial grouping's) biological makeup. In such a framework, the widespread social and environmental causes are ignored and the victim becomes targeted as the culprit. It's their own fault.  Or, if not their "fault," the more liberal version goes, it's still "in their genes, poor souls." The VIP starts where the book The Bell Curve leaves off-the search for the gene that "causes" criminal behavior and the assumption that intelligence, poverty, and criminal behavior is the result of "deficient" genes. The Project's Defenders Race-based biological theories of aggression are neither new nor scientific. One champion of the Violence Initiative, Dr. Frederick Goodwin, defended the "theory" before the National Health Advisory Council in February 1992: If you look, for example, at male monkeys, especially in the wild, Goodwin said, roughly half of them survive to adulthood. The other half die by violence. That is the natural way of it for males, to knock each other off and, in fact, there are some interesting evolutionary implications of that because the same hyper-aggressive monkeys who kill each other are also hypersexual, so they copulate more and therefore they reproduce more to offset the fact that half of them are dying. Now, one could say that if some of the loss of social structure in this society, and particularly within the high impact inner city areas, has removed some of the civilizing evolutionary things that we have built up and that maybe it isn't just the careless use of the word when people call certain areas of certain cities jungles, then we may have gone back to what might be more natural, without all of the social controls that we have imposed upon ourselves as a civilization over thousands of years in our own evolution. (8)

"The initiative specifically rejects any examination of social, economic, or political questions, such as racism, poverty, or unemployment."

Goodwin is part of a long line of white supremacists who have now traded in their white Klan robes for lab coats. In the 1850s, Louisiana physician Samuel Cartwright described a mental disease of slaves called "drapetomania," which caused its victims to run away from their masters. A century later, American physicians Vernon Mark, Frank Ervin and William Sweet proposed that urban rebellions were caused by brain damaged individuals who could be cured by psychosurgery (lobotomy). They received grants of almost $1 million in federal funding. (9) Of course, aggressive, violent or criminal behavior is no more determined by genes than is the desire to study "the inheritance of violence" or the "predisposition" to become a corporate lawyer (which often runs in the family). One could argue that cops, generals, football players and many others have inherited a gene that predisposes them to committing acts of violence-not to mention corporate executives and politicians who murder with their pens or send missiles flying to countries half-a-world away, killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people in the process. Yet the Violence Initiative Project, along with the biotech industry, is charging ahead full speed, knocking aside all who dare question both the Project's and the industry's apparent willingness to sacrifice our lives and environment in their rush for profits and social control of forces that would oppose them, that they find threatening. In a brilliant early article scathing the project, Gerald Horne wrote:  "The Initiative specifically rejects any examination of social, economic, or political questions, such as racism, poverty, or unemployment. Instead, this bio-medical approach focuses heavily on the alleged role of the brain neurotransmitter, serotonin, in violence. Not coincidentally, this approach is favored by many in the medical industry." (10)

Dr. Peter Breggin, a leading analyst in the field, has observed, "This [approach] corresponds with the current financial interests of the pharmaceutical industry, since several drugs affecting serotonin neurotrasmission have been submitted for approval to the Food and Drug Administration. ... The controversial antidepressant, Prozac, is the first of these serotonergic drugs, and it has become the largest moneymaker in the pharmaceutical industry." (11)

Against this backdrop, NIH provided a hefty $100,000 grant for a conference entitled "Genetic Factors in Crime: Findings, Uses and Implications." It was to be sponsored by the Institute for Philosophy and Public Policy at the University of Maryland and slated for October 1992. The promotional brochure promised that "genetic research holds out the prospect of identifying individuals who may be predisposed to certain kinds of criminal conduct, of isolating environmental features which trigger those predispositions, and of treating some predispositions with drugs and unintrusive therapies." (12)

The objections were led by enraged African-Americans concerned that, in these dangerous times, such a project could easily be transformed into directed genocide.

The Coalition Against the Violence Initiative is leading the attack against proponents of such theories who argue that social problems are caused by biologically defective members of oppressed classes, and that society can be improved by identifying and eliminating the propagation of these "defectives." In the case of the Maryland conference discussed above, the ensuing protests caused NIH to freeze conference funding-temporarily. The objections were led by enraged African-Americans concerned that, in these dangerous times, such a project could easily be transformed into directed genocide. Their concern was not assuaged when it was revealed that Reagan appointee Marianne Mele Hall proclaimed that black and brown people are culturally and even genetically inferior. They have been conditioned, she said, "by 10,000 years of selective breeding for personal combat and the anti-work ethic of jungle freedoms" and were therefore unfit for civic life. Great Society programs just "spoiled" them, she argued, encouragng a sense of entitlements that led to laziness, drug use and crime, particularly crimes against whites. (13) Which brings us back to Goodwin. When we last left him, he was being chastised for making similar reference to jungles, comparing Black people with monkeys. Dr. Horne writes: "By associating African-Americans with monkeys and 'hypersexuality,' Goodwin tapped into a wellspring of racist sentiment." Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Louis Sullivan joined many others and criticized Goodwin's remarks. But Goodwin's disfavor lasted, oh, around a week. Shortly thereafter, Sullivan in effect rewarded Goodwin by appointing him head of the influential National Institute of Mental Health - a post not requiring Senate approval or presidential appointment. As for Goodwin, his first official act as head of the National Institute of Mental Health was - you guessed it! - to approve funding for the National Violence Initiative. The Results!  The long-awaited results of the "studies" on young children are now in. They are exactly the reverse of what researchers had expected! The children, supposedly "predisposed" to aggression and violence, turned out to have normal or elevated serotonin levels. (Remember, the researchers had been claiming that low serotonin levels lead to aggression and violence.) Case closed?  Guess again. Since Wasserman, Pine, et al. had determined in advance what their conclusions were going to be, and since their golden egg-laying goose needed to be coaxed yet again for more eggs-further funding-they invented a most peculiar explanation for these results: Perhaps, they guessed, serotonin had the opposite effect in children than in adults. Perhaps high serotonin in childhood leads to low serotonin in adults. The reductionist and biodeterminist approach exemplified by the Violence Initiative Project is rampant with such nonsense. But it is dangerous nonsense. In November 1998, researchers distributed a memo to staff at George Washington High School in Upper Manhattan announcing a survey to be done on first year students "at risk for" negative behaviors. By now, we should all have an idea of what "at risk for" means. Youngsters so designated are to be sent to the clinic run by Columbia Presbyterian Hospital and the Columbia School of Public Health, for "assessment." The Coalition Against the Violence Initiative (CAVI) sent a strongly worded letter to the principal outlining the group's concerns and calling for cancellation of the survey. Members passed out leaflets to students and parents alerting them to the dangers and advised them not to sign consent forms. Members of Lawyers for the Public Interest also called the school, as did a number of individual teachers whom the Coalition had contacted. As we go to press, we learn of the first victory for the Coalition - the principal canceled the survey. But similar projects are underway throughout the city and, indeed, throughout the country. So is resistance to them. CAVI continues to target the NY Psychiatric Institute, Columbia University, th e former Audubon Ballroom (now a main bioengineering center in New York) and Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. And in November 1998 a small group from the Coalition decided to take their protests directly to the source. They picketed the "Mood & Anxiety Disorders in Children" conference at the Hotel Pennsylvania (New York City), where Daniel Pine was a featured speaker (topic: "Psychobiology and Pharmacotherapy of Anxiety Disorders in Youth"). The program was supported in part by a grant from Solvay Pharmaceuticals. Two CAVI activists were arrested and dragged out of the proceedings after attempting to hang a banner from the balcony, and now face criminal charges.

The Coalition needs your help. Its members fear that those most affected by the Wasserman/Pine experiments - the parents and children who are being recruited to take part in the studies - remain largely uninformed about the nature and outlook of the experiments being conducted on them. CAVI remains as skeptical as ever about the labeling of a large number of children, disproportionately minority and poor children, as having mental illness. The group contends that the role of those concerned with children's mental health should be to tackle the social and environmental conditions that, in the broader sense, generate young people legitimately at risk for all sorts of pressures to which aggressive behavior is often a self-protecting response, rather than attempting to locate the causes of children's distress within themselves, in their genes and hormones.

THE BLACK NATIONS AND COMMUNITIES MUST REALIZE THAT THIS IS A DANGEROUS,
WELL-ARMED, NATIONALISTIC WORLD LIVING IN THE PRESENT AND NOT UNDER THE
GHANDI AND M.L. KING ERA

Although it is heartening to look back to the sixties and before and to
take the example set by people like Ghandi and Martin Luther King, as
Black people in the Americas, Africa, West Papua, South and East India,
Australia, Europe and Melanesia/Indian Ocean regions, the time has com
for these populations to realize that India today does not base its
survival and policies on the Ghandi era.  India is a strong nation with
a large army and Armageddon weapons.  The Indians of today are not
prepared to beg, sing, clap or march for peace.

As for the 300 million Blacks in the Americas and the many millions in
Melanesia and West Papua, Indonesia and the region who are suffering
from systems that use the utmost brutality to suppress Black aspirations
of independence and self determination (in Latin Americas and S.E.
Asia/Indonesia, Sudan, Mauritania, South and East India), the time has
surely come to start seeing the world and those who continue to use
oppressive means to keep Blacks from moving forward as opponents.  New
methods of approach must be used including changing tactics from one of
begging for rights that are God-given and nature-bestowed, to using
intelligence, strong alliances and effective means to assure that human
and natural rights are not trampled anywhere.

PAN-AFRICAN DEMOCRACY AND FREEDOM IN SUDAN, MAURITANIA, LATIN AMERICA,
WEST PAPUA, THE AMERICAS

While the world waits in anticipation for Iraq and the rest of the
Middle East to be made safe for democracy, the fact is in the same
region, where the vast majority of people suffering are Africans and the
oppressors are Semitic-leaning people who use the Semitic ideologies to
oppress and commit genocide against those who do not follow their
religions, there is absolutely no democracy.

Hence, isn't it time that African nations establish a PAX AFRICANA
(African Peace) in these nations of Negroes who think they are
Arabs/Semites and carry on the work of genocide of other people?  Isn't
it time to remind the Africans of places like East, North-East and West
Africa who are trying to be more Arab than the Arabs themselves that
they are Africans, with a history, culture, religions and a CONSTITUTION
that is thousands of years old?

Have Africans and Blacks elsewhere including S.E. Asia and Africoid
peoples in South and East India forgotten that one of the cultural
traits that shows our relatedness and ancient connections is an ancient
constitution where democratic traditions have always existed.  Anyone
who reads the Ethics of Maat, the forty-two laws listed by the ancient
Egyptians would realize that long before the Ten Commandments was
introduced by the Jews, Africans had many of the same and these were
used as a guide to everyday living in harmony and prosperity.  Yet,
today instead of African/Black nations returning to their own culture
and traditions, the religions, cultures, laws and customs of others are
being forced on Black/African populations causing fragmentation and
division.  When was the last time any nation in the Middle East adopt
African law, religion and traditions and discarded their own.

RETURN OF THE AFRICAN CONSTITUTION

It would benefit Africans and the Black world to return to its own
culture, religions and constitution.  The African constitution exists
today and has existed for over ten thousand years.  This constitution is
the core of the laws, morals and master plan for ancient African/Black
world development since the time of Ausar (Osirus).  Instead of trying
to copy the laws of the Semites, the Europeans or others, African
nations should return to the ancient African Constitution ( see the
African Constitution, Bill of Natural Rights, Ethics of Maat
http://community.webtv.net/paulnubiaempire).

It seems that the Black nations are caught in a state of confusion.  Why
is a nation like Sudan, the core of Black civilization and culture, a
region that is to Blacks around the world what Israel is to Jews, why is
Sudan another colony of the Semites?  How long are Sudanese who are
members of the Black African race going to realize that the white
Semites of the Middle East don't care one bit about Blacks of Sudan,
Somalia, South Egypt, Eretheria, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Kenya, Congo, West
Africa or any where else?
How long are the true and pure Cushite people of Sudan who created
Nubian-Cushite civilization and are the blood brothers of the original
Black population of Egypt going to work to unite all the tribes and
ethnicities who have always been in Nubia-Cush?

The Nuba, Nubians, Dinkas and all the Cushite African peoples of Sudan
must unite and return the culture of Africans back to the entire region.
 Blacks from Egypt to Kenya who have been fooled into the Semitic
colonial sphere or who have been forced into it must take steps to
return to their cultures, languages, religions and traditions.  The
nations of Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Eretheria and all the Black
nations of North East and East Africa must realize they are Black
Africans no matter how much Semitic colonial influence there is.  Its
obvious that the North Sudan, Northern Ethiopia, Eretheria, Somalia of
today has had some Semitic infiltration, but so is parts of China, yet,
China is still dominated by Chinese Culture.  With a population of close
to 200 milion, the Black regions of South Egypt, the nations of Sudan,
Somalia, Kenya, Erethria, PuntLand, Tanzania should unite and recreate
the old Nubian-Cushite empire.

In the West of Africa, nations like Nigeria, Chad, Ghana, Liberia,
Sierra Leone, Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso and others should work for the
creation of a strong and powerful nation where the artificial borders
imposed by the colonialists where misery and conflict has kept Africans
poor and at war would be alleviated.

The nations of Papua New Guinea, the Melanesian region, the Black South
Pacific region, West Papua must unite with the aim of creating a
regional Black superpower that would use its resources, skills and
intellectual capacity to create a nation as great or greater than Japan.
 The constant oppression of Black Melanesians in West Papua must be
dealt with and the fury that is brewing in the Black Americas especially
the United States and Black Brazil over the constant oppression and
genocide being committed in both West Papua and Sudan (Africa) will lead
to a solution sooner or later.  Yet, Blacks must work for the creation
of strong Black states in Melanesia so that these states will be strong
enough to defend themselves against the same type of Semitic-influenced
racism and genocide that is taking place in South Sudan today.

THE UNITY OF BLACKS IN THE AMERICAS

Racist genocide against Blacks in Latin America has taken a dangerous
turn.  Outright genocide and ethnic cleansing has been taking place for
decades with the elimination of Black street children in some parts of
South America.  The racist treatment, poverty, neglect and the
destruction of Black culture and Black people in the conflicts occurring
in parts of Latin America is a threat to the survival of Blacks.  Hence,
when will the Black population of nations like Brazil, Colombia,
Venezuela, Central America, the Dominican Republic, South Mexico, Panama
and the rest of Latin America realize that the time has come to totally
reject the Hispanization and cultural and physical genocide being
committed against the Black race in Latin America?  This issue was
brought forth by the Final Call about three years ago, when a meeting of
all the representatives of the various communities and nations of
African-descent people in the Americas from Uraguay to Canada created
THE ORGANIZATION OF AFRICANS IN THE AMERICAS.  The aim of this
organization which works to unite about 300 million Blacks in the
Americas is to work for the upliftment of Blacks throughout the
Americas.

BLACKS IN NORTH AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN: USING INTELLECTUAL AND
ECONONOMIC POWER


There is no group of Blacks in the world as influential as the Black
American people. It is up to Blacks to use these areas where they have
world power and strength and not allow anyone to infiltrate, steal and
dilute these areas.  One thinks of Black culture and conscious music,
literature, movies and other areas.  It is up to the Black intelligence
to not sit back and watch hip-hop culture and music be trashed into
pornographic lyrics being fed to us.  Living in these times, Blacks must
change with the times.  Over the pat few years a nazi-like cadre of
terroristic propaganda designed to spread hatred and  continue to attack
Blacks.  This new anti-Americans media seems to have no loyalty to
America or its people.  Their only loyalty is tot the issues of the
Middle East. Whoever is promoting this new cadre of neo-facists
propagandists by using their limbos, yo'really's, momo chereens,
edgycocks, slick willeyams, and all the former liberals (now
"conservatives,") who were at the forefront of turning America into a
decadent nation by hijacking the Black civil rights movement and turning
it into the hippie, "free sex," "do your own thing," corruption, seem to
have been able to turn the eyes of the American people from the fact
that they are being hoodwinked.

So, today's "peace" movement and those who continue to beg, clap and
sing for rights that come from God and that no one has the right to
tamper with, should know that we are living in different times.  It is
time to discard the old "peace at any cost" philosophy. It is time to
discard the Ghandian and Martin Luther King philosophy when dealing with
ruthless brutalizers of Black people who massacre, commit genocide, take
Blacks lands, pass nazi-like laws, discriminate and perpetuate racism,
commit ethnic cleansing and oppress Blacks.  No amount of clapping and
singing, marching and begging will stop the racist Semiticists
North-East Africa who are ravaging and enslaving African women in Sudan,
or African women in Mauritania from committing their brutality.  No
clapping and singing will stop brutality and attacks on Blacks in Latin
America, parts of South Asia, West Papua or North America.
Hence, the time has come to start applying effective strategies and
alliance to put a stop to those who continue to try to force their
religions and cultures on Blacks, drive Blacks off their lands,
eliminate Blacks who are not of the invaders' religions, rape and ravage
Black women, enslave Black men, women and Children or take the human
rights of Blacks.

We Blacks in the Americas must unite and we must realize that alliances
have to be made with those who will work with us to stop the genocide
that is being committed against Blacks.  Has any Black person realized
that Blacks are suffering racism in places like Iraq, Egypt, Indonesia,
Sudan and Syria (where Black refugees from Sudan are not welcome).
Blacks in the Americas must unite, build strength, create a strong
economic and cultural system, preserve the African culture that we
brought from Africa and work to Africanize and apply the positive ness of
Black nationalism, equal rights and justice around the world.  We simply
cannot say "peace, peace," we must have equal rights, justice and
freedom from all those who oppress Blacks, (please read the book, "A

Justices Grill Affirmative Action Lawyers

WASHINGTON, April 1, 2003

(CBS) Supreme Court justices, confronting affirmative action for the first time since outlawing quotas 25 years ago, debated Tuesday whether colleges and universities may legally consider race when admitting students.

Hearing oral arguments on admissions policies at the University of Michigan and its law school, the justices aggressively questioned lawyers for plaintiffs and the school. The Bush administration's top lawyer, also took part, arguing that the university's law school program "is a thinly disguised quota."

But Solicitor General Theodore Olson stopped short of declaring that race could never be part of admissions policies.

The arguments took place in the ornate courtroom as a crowd of 5,000 to 7,000 mostly pro-affirmative action demonstrators carried placards and shouted slogans outside.

_____________________________


Carter G. Woodson described those dependent upon Affirmative Action to display some false sense of equality as being parasites, and I strongly agree.


"If we can finally succeed in translating the idea of leadership into that of service, we may soon find it possible to lift the Negro to a higher level. Under leadership we have come into the ghetto; by service within the ranks we may work our way out of it. Under leadership we have been constrained to do the bidding of others; by service we may work out a program in the light of our own circumstances. Under leadership we have become poverty-stricken; by service we may teach the masses how to earn a living honestly. Under leadership we have been made to despise our own possibilities and to develop into [Affirmative Action] parasites; by service we may prove sufficient unto the task of self-development and contribute our part to modern culture."
 

Pages 118-119, "The Mis-Education of The Negro," Carter G. Woodson


 

REVELATION 6:9-11


 

"And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held [such as Carter G. Woodson and Marcus Garvey]."
"And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?"
"And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled."


In his rally cry "Up, Up You Mighty Race," Marcus Garvey declared that there is no greater tribute that we could pay to our Creator than to function as Man [Man created in the image of God].  My dearly beloved Africa brothers and sisters, look deep within yourselves and you will find a real man or woman just waiting there to prove that you are sufficient to the task of self-development and to contributing your share to humanity and modern civilization—without being Affirmative Action parasites, as your Black American leaders would have you to be for their own selfish gain.

Don't let Taiwan fight SARS alone!

Dear friends,

This is an urgent and earnest request for your help.  It is not a political
campaign, but a humble humanistic appeal.  "Please help Taiwan to join the
WHO and fight SARS."

For more than half a century, the WHO (World Health Organization) has upheld
its constitution on health as "one of the fundamental rights of every human
being without distinction of race, religion, political belief, economic or
social condition."

But for thirty years, Taiwan has been excluded from the WHO because of the
political interference from China.  China declares that it owns Taiwan as
one of its provinces and that it has taken care of the health of Taiwanese
very well.  It is a big lie since China has never been here in Taiwan in any
ways and we have lived in our own free and democratic system for many
decades. "Yesterday, Taiwan was rejected as an observer (not even a member)
again by the WHO."

Taiwan is fighting SARS alone now without effective supports from WHO and
expecting their help so much.  We believe that health should be the issue
transcending politics. So please help us to say ¡ "Yes to Taiwan to join the
WHO" and have them help Taiwan to fight SARS.

You will be extremely appreciated by all the Taiwanese if you would express
your concerns and regrets on this issue to the WHO
(http://www.who.int/suggestions/en/), members of your Congress or
Parliament, media and presses, medical groups and associations, and even
government officials.


My deal friend, Taiwanese are looking forward to having your supports and
thank you for your kindness and understanding.

Sincerely yours,

Sara Chow & Paul Lee/ ZMI Electronics Ltd.
Omo Oba:

Africans that have totally bought into colonial brainwashing as packaged in
our education and neo-colonial evangelical, Christian fundamentalist
upbringing do not wish to hear what you wrote below.

Sometimes I wonder: "Are Africans really this DUMB, to buy so much into the
mentality and culture of other races so totally to the point of completely
disrespecting their own, and believing we had no culture before the advent
of the Arabs (Islam) and the Europeans (Christianity), and that truly, we
were mere primitives and barbarians?"

Who is going to save the African from himself?

An Opinion From Naomi Wolf
for George Magazine

We build memorials to what we want to remember, but a glance at our
public monuments also shows just what we want to forget. Just off the
Mall in Washington, D.C., there's a vast museum devoted to a holocaust
that took place in Europe; near the Potomac, there's a beloved memorial
to a slaughter that unfolded in Southeast Asia. But you'd have to look
long and hard over the American landscape to find any prominent
recognition of our own homegrown holocaust-of the 250 years during
which up to one American in five was held, scourged, and bred as
chattel.

America has a willful amnesia about its slave past. Daily life in
Colonial Williamsburg has been painstakingly re-created for the sake of
tourists. In the West, towns re-enact the days of the gold rush. But at
the sites of the notorious slave markets---where thousands of African
families were dispersed while sustaining the economies that supported
white families---there is little or no commemoration. Ellis Island's
makeover is a gleaming piece of historical preservation; but in Auburn,
New York, the house of Harriet Tubman, which was a famous station on
the Underground Railroad, now lies in disrepair, its preservation left
to the amateur efforts of local citizens who raise funds to maintain
it. The slave quarters at Mount Vernon carefully explain the production
of horseshoes and tallow: Tools are displayed, but not whips or
shackles. No multimedia archives bother to chronicle the histories of,
and relationships between, the enslaved Americans who served the father
of our country. Little attention is paid to the bitter irony that while
George Washington allowed his slaves to wed, the state of Virginia
refused to legally recognize those unions.

White America wants to forget. Two decades ago, the miniseries Roots
was a major pop culture event because it gave names and faces to
historical shadows, but its theme was palatable to whites only because
it led, ultimately, to assimilation and redemption. In contrast, Steven
Spielberg's recent Amistad---a straightforward and unsettling account
of the subjection of Africans in the slave trade-sank like a stone.

Plenty of whites would say that memorializing our slave past is worse
than unimportant, that it is destructive to the present. Controversy
attended efforts to obtain congressional funding for a museum of
slavery on the Mall. Southern struggles over the Confederate flag are
routine and bitter. Whites' reactions to blacks' insistence on
memorializing slavery are strong: "I didn't own any slaves. Why should
I apologize?" as one recent caller to a talk-radio station
characteristically argued. When congressman Tony P. Hall, a white
Democrat from Ohio, raised the subject of an apology for slavery as a
"step toward healing," he was deluged with criticism. President Clinton
typically waffled on this issue when, last August, he chose to leave
the decision on whether to apologize for slavery up to his race
advisory board. Eight months later, inching toward a more complete
gesture, he sort of apologized for the slave trade-in Africa, to the
descendants of Africans who were left behind by it; not in America to
the descendants of those who were captured and bred in captivity. "The
United States has not always done the right thing by Africa," he said
with a truly farcical note of understatement. "Going back to the time
before we were even a nation, European Americans received the fruits of
the slave trade and we were wrong in that."

Why does an apology matter? Why is memorializing our slave past
important for the present? These things matter because without them,
both sides remain stuck. The mass denial of slavery by the dominant
culture creates what denial creates in any dysfunctional family:
inflamed articulation of the denied truth by the injured party. The
more one family member silences, the more the other symbolically over
emotes. When a black man was recently dragged to his death by three
whites in Jasper, Texas, whites quoted in news coverage swore that the
savage murder was an isolated event, as if they were unconscious of the
history of lynching in towns just like theirs. In reaction to such
denial, the African-Americans quoted were inclined toward conspiracy
theories. "At this point," one woman reportedly said, "I'll believe
anything."

How would proper memorials of slavery heal this stalemate? Memorials
reflect the depth of our caring. As a Jew, I know rage wells within me
toward contemporary Germans when I see a cheap tin marker over a subway
entrance in the heart of Berlin commemorating a roundup of local Jews.
The slightness of the marker undermines my trust in my German
peers---even though the historic tragedy is now distant from us.

Apologies between groups matter for the same reason they matter between
individuals in intimate relationships: They help keep the relationship
healthy. The recent wave of international apologies speaks to the power
of this fact. Why should we care whether Switzerland returns what are
often insignificant amounts of money to
Jews? Not because of the money but because of the lingering denial. Why
did the pope's semi-apology for the Catholic Church's collusion with
Nazism reinforce Jewish distrust of Catholicism? Precisely because of
its tone of self-exoneration. In contrast, France's unstinting apology
for its collusion with the Vichy government and Australia's
wholehearted Sorry Day, in which the entire continent expresses regret
for separating Aboriginal children from their parents, will both go a
long way toward genuine healing-the kind we in this country should note
with envy.

Finally, particularly where children are concerned, apologies reflect
the value assigned to a given relationship. Without an apology from
whites for the centuries during which black children were bought and
sold, black kids grow up wondering if the dominant culture will ever
value them enough for their efforts within the system to really work.
The fact is, conspiracies against black Americans have been real.
Slavery itself was a conspiracy. So were the post- Reconstruction
years, when whites banded together to cheat blacks out of fair prices
for their cotton and white police forces conspired to frame black
defendants. Without an apology that acknowledges this reality, black
off-the-wall conspiracy theorizing will continue to assert itself.
Hence, for example, the widespread beliefs that the CIA invented AIDS
and that the LAPD framed O.J.

An apology in this case is not an _expression of personal guilt. It is
an _expression of regret, of shared sorrow. Popular spiritualist
Marianne Williamson, who is often mocked for saying things America
isn't ready to hear, conducts an experiment with her audiences: She has
white people stand and apologize to blacks in the audience for racism
and the harm it has inflicted upon their families and children. I
watched this once, squirming with discomfort; I was sure it would be
offensive, a sham, superficial, insulting, phony-all the things we fear
when the issue of an apology comes up. To my astonishment, after the
apology the mood in the room changed in a way I have never before felt
in America: There was an almost tangible lightening of tension for both
the blacks and the whites. It was a mood in which one could actually
move on. As one old black woman said, with tears running down her
cheeks, "I've been waiting my whole life to hear a white man say that
to me."

In a bad marriage, every little friction symbolizes the larger sense of
being held in contempt or feeling betrayed. That's where we are now. In
a good marriage, a fight, no matter how bad it gets, is just a fight.
That's where an apology can take us. So in the interest of starting
with what I can, I want to say, for the record, about this great harm:
I am so sorry.

Hip-Hop Lynching

The thousands of young black men dying each year on the streets are this
century's strange fruit, fallen to the ground. This time, the blood is on our
hands.

By Hakim Hasan


During my annual trip to Atlanta last year to spend Thanksgiving with my
mother and siblings, I went to see the Without Sanctuary: Lynching Photography in
America exhibition at The Visitor's Center at the Martin Luther King Jr.
Historic Site. The gruesome photographs and postcards on view (yes, the bastards
even made postcards of their macabre acts) depicted the mutilated remains of
black men, boys and women as well as white men. Lynching was ritualistic public
square violence, part of a sordid history of white criminality. In "Hellhounds"
an essay published in the exhibit's commemorative volume, Without Sanctuary,
historian Leon F. Litwack writes that "Between 1882 and 1968 an estimated
4,742 blacks met their deaths at the hands of lynch mobs."

As I studied the photograph of a black man burned beyond recognition,
I wondered: What would be the response if this were a photographic exhibition
of black-on-black homicide victims from Atlanta, Philadelphia, Detroit,
Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Los Angeles, Chicago, St. Louis, Newark and New York?
According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, from 1976 to 2000, 94 percent of
black homicide victims in America were killed by other blacks. The Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention cite homicide as the leading cause of death
for black males between the ages of 15 and 34, with 4,412 such victims in 2000
alone. The number of blacks murdered by other blacks since Reconstruction far
exceeds those lynched by whites. But given our muted response to this
travesty, I have to conclude that black life, especially poor black life, only matters
when placed in context with white folks.

We've seen this play out time and again. When a white person or police
officer kills a black person or violates his or her civil rights, revolutionary
Negroes can be counted upon to hit the streets like clockwork, defiantly waving
their preprinted "No Justice, No Peace" placards. Suited-down civil rights
leaders will hold a press conference and declare from a prepared statement, "There
is a resurgence of racist violence against blacks." There is an unspoken
legacy and rule of racial etiquette at work here: the value of black life depends
on what white folks do to us. This is why a photographic exhibition of
black-on-black crime victims will never exist, even though the net effect of
widespread black-on-black crime is far more insidious than the lynching of a brother
ever was.

The prevalence of crime and homicide in poor black communities is a
barrier to housing development, business formation, good educational systems and
home ownership. At least if white folks start moving into my neighborhood,
eventually (for starters) I'll be able to buy a copy of Savoy without having to
leave the area to find a decent bookstore.

Let's be clear. I'm no self-hating right-wing conservative; I'm a liberal
contrarian. I am the director of an urban institute at a small college in New
York City. I live in a poor black neighborhood in Jersey City, N.J. And I'm
writing a memoir tentatively titled Keep That Nigger Boy Running. But I never
expected to be running from my own.

In March, two black undercover New York City detectives were shot in the head
and killed during a buy-and-bust operation aimed at removing illegal guns
from the community. Their bodies were dumped on the street. Three of the four
suspects arrested were young black males. Despite my distrust of the police, this
tragedy hurt me to my heart. It was proof of a deeper danger and confirmed my
real fear. Ordinary working-class blacks now face and fear misguided, vicious
and unapologetic black male criminals who are carrying the torch from the
lynch mobs of old, dispensing their brand of vigilante justice to anyone who
dares cross the rules of the street.

`Under these circumstances-since poor black neighborhoods are bereft
of informal social controls-who is responsible for maintaining safety and order
if it is not these very police officers that were murdered? Blacks who have
well-paying jobs can leave crime-ridden neighborhoods. Those who cannot have to
create strategic coalitions with law enforcement officials. They have no
other choice.

The time has come for black leadership to recognize black criminality and its
underlying consequences as a major public health hazard. To do nothing is
akin to being part of the crowds that gathered to ogle the lifeless bodies of
young men who swung in the trees. And while they stare in disbelief, horror or
worse yet, contempt, law-abiding blacks will continue to walk past other blacks
in poor black communities with that suspicious
"Damn-are-you-gonna-try-and-hurt-me?" look in their eyes.

Or maybe black criminals can start wearing white hoods. Perhaps then black
leadership will address black-on-black crime.

Hoteph Beloved:

Why in the world of hypocrites, it is inappropriate for  a white person to speak what most White People are thinking ?

What is so injurious about being Truthful, about speaking one mind about Black People and a lot of time, it does not be their prejudice ignorance speaking, but it be the truth of the matter.

I rather the devil reveal himself to me than to disguise himself, causing me to think the opposite about him than what he really is.

Diplomacy for the sake of hypocrisy in the face of honesty in regard to Race, is a vice and yet most Blacks prefer the vice instead of the honesty.

How can one protect himself from an enemy by thinking the enemy is a friend ?

An enemy has an established a past pattern of behavior toward whom is considered to be a foe and is considered undeserving of respect and honor and such a qualification, meet the behavior of white people toward Black People, regardless of how much we wish and pretend other wise.

Of course there are exceptions to every rule and it is obvious those who meet the exception rule is excluded, but then I have no interest in categorizing White People, they must reveal themselves by their action,  proving worthy of being treated under the exception rule by Black People, but must always know that they are under suspicion and close observation constantly.

I thank the gods of our Ancient Black African Ancestors for our Enslaved Ancestors, because they have left a badge that accurately measure the hypocrisy and evil prejudice / Racism of  White Folks and that badge is  Reparation / Repatriation.

Such a badge and white folks attitude toward it, is a clear indication of what White Folks think or shall I say do not think of Black Folks, It reveal their true nature and feeling toward Black people, by the way they express their thoughts and feelings toward Reparation / Repatriation.

Now the sad part about it is, there are some ignorant Black Folks who might have two or three nickels over their budget of living comfortable, physically and who take pride in imitating white folks behavioral attitude toward Reparation / Repatriation, not realizing, to be against Reparation / Repatriation is a display of their pleasure of being submissive servants to White People, as they mimic White People in their artificial role of success.

What the Kerner report said in the early seventies is true today and that is, america and I will go a step further by saying the white world, is a prejudice Racist world, controlled by Racist White People and in america, there are two societies, one White And one Black and unequal and yet Black Folks squat in glee for being in such a condition in america, not realizing that such is a self degrading position, it reveal the expression from Black Folks of Self Hatred and is a lover of the devil, the White Evil that has plague the Black Nation, from the Time they Discovered Us living in complete splendor and Harmony with God, Universe and Self, what a pity and a shame the Black Mind express toward self as oppose toward the evil that cause Black oppression and servitude to those whose devilish acts are consistent and constantly displayed toward the Black Nation.

I condemn not this New Zealand White Devil, he only revealed what most White Folks think of the Black African Nation and for that I can beware of him, with caution in a war stance.

Like I said as like I continue to say, just a caution, be very careful with the new angels of mercy who are very concerned on the AIDS epidemic in Africa. Yes those who come in our midst and tell us how much they care for Zimbabwe is loosing 50,000 people a day due to AIDS. Now to those in Toronto that roughly means that Zimbabwe is loosing a population of the entire Pickering suburb a day. That is crap and you and I know it. Is AIDS a problem today in Africa? Absolutely. Do we need to fight it and I say without a debate. But there is so much fuzzy between us and the true picture of the effect of AIDS to Africa that we just do not know the actual facts. And these numbers are just to use our people to the betterment of the involved party/s.

And remember too that money is and will always be a barrier into finding cures of these diseases. As my professor whispered in my ear last week "Edward do you think there can ever be a mad Doctor announcing that he has a cure of Cancer? Where will his next pay check come from?" As I was contemplating about that statement, I remembered how shrewd Museveni of Uganda is, for he picked up the AIDS issue and he is today known as the best healer of AIDS. So we have 4 million people in very terrible camps for 20 years, we have TB killing people left right and centre, we have people dying of simple curable diseases like Malaria, but Uganda is a model for AIDS is wiped out. Are we that naive?

Be well as AIDS is decimating the entire population of Africa. IN fact the first nation to be obliterated will be Zimbabwe for they are dying in millions per day.

================================================

Aids data: Most of it is lies,
damned lies and statistics
HIV/Aids has truly impacted on the lives of each one of us in one way or another and the fight must be won.
Up-to-date facts and figures are a prerequisite in any effective communication on most subjects, and HIV/Aids is no exception.

Seven hundred Kenyans dying every day, three in five minutes, prevalence rates, and rates of incidence are common terms to us. Such data is bandied around with such adroitness and vigour that sometimes it is as if we are fighting a series of mathematical algorithms rather than an actual virus. 

Whilst there is value in using numbers to describe phenomena, it is essential that when we do so, we understand exactly what these figures represent.

It was former British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli who once said: "There are three types of lies: Lies, damned lies and statistics".

This could not be truer for some of the so-called "facts" hurled at us by reputable experts and international agencies in the build-up to World Aids Day.

In the Sunday Nation of November 30, Arthur Okwemba quoted the Executive Director of an Aids support group from Uganda claiming that there has been a fall in HIV prevalence in Uganda "from more than 30 per cent in 1995 to nearly 5 per cent today".

This translated in real terms, means that of the 23 million inhabitants of Uganda, almost seven million were HIV positive in 1995 and eight years later, the figure stands at slightly more than one million.

This means that there are six million less HIV positive Ugandans today than in 1995. If you factor in the Ugandans who acquired the virus after 1995, this leaves a simply enormous body of people who are no longer HIV positive. What has happened to the Ugandans who do not appear in the latest figures? Did they leave Uganda, die or were they cured of HIV?

If the prevalence figures are inverted, it does not say much for Uganda's widely commended HIV/Aids response if it is unable to prevent the deaths of 800,000 HIV positive people a year.

In Kenya, it has been stated that HIV/Aids had, by 1998, reduced life expectancy by 13 years to only 51. Taking HIV prevalence in Kenya of 12 per cent and applying a simple weighted average, it is easily proved that this assertion is a mathematical impossibility. In fact, for such a drop in life expectancy to be caused by HIV alone, HIV positive Kenyans would have to have a life expectancy of minus 44 years. That is, they would have been dead a whole two generations before they were born! We cannot be so foolish as to use baseless and incongruous statistics in our arguments. 

Even the great UN, in its much quoted Aids Epidemic Update released recently, makes statements that, on closer inspection, are questionable.

It is simply not good enough to use tests on pregnant women taken in antenatal clinics as the main source for raw data used to estimate national prevalence in the way the UNAids study has.

People tested in antenatal clinics are, by the very fact they are women who have had unprotected sex, a high-risk group. The argument presented in the Epidemic Update in justifying the assumptions made by the UN in producing their estimates using this method is both weak and flawed.

What is needed is a wide reaching and aggressive campaign to derive comprehensive and accurate figures on the scourge that will allow us to plan our response based on knowledge and not conjecture.

Hoteph My Beloved Sisters And Brothers :

You know my dear hearts, it never cease to amaze me as to how Black folks have been condition to think and view the world, with us not being a part of it but just in it.

I will continue to remind the Black World as well as the World at large, about the uniqueness of the Black African in the Diaspora,against their will, in other word, having not had a choice in the matter and now stand to represent the Salvation for African people.

Now that is not make believe, nor does it take intellectual discussion or philosophizing or opinions, nor is it up for debate, because the truth does not need to be debated, nor is it looking for a friend, for it is unrelenting in the presence adversity of all sorts and that my dear beloved, should be the leader of Black action, the Truth that is.

Yes,Yes, the leader of Black Folks should be the Truth and the Truth is, Black Folks have been taken out of the circle where only original Thought and clear knowledge of our past,hold the solution to the Black African problem and such are the main attributes of Truth.

We sit and we throw our little so call westernized education around as if we are some privileged member of what some call the talented tenth and it is such talent that highlight what qualify us as a fool, which such talented one's  have become, as we flaunt the devil educational deceit around and  about, as we express with glee what is taught to us about the Black African Nation by our oppressors.

It is  the position  we Black Folks take on world events, be they Social, Educational, Political, Religious And Economic, that determine our mental status,based on our opinion and so call flawed education,Religion and Scio - economic Political View, which keep us in a caste, away from the Truth.

 It is the position and behavior we Black Folks take and express in those regard as they apply and effect  Blacks in america, other part of the Diaspora, Africa and the world in general that make us look and act like fools, ignorant of the Truth about ourselves.

Such tactics become our death, if Truth is not the underlining objective in order to qualify their meaning and effective affect upon the Black African Life.

There is no various and diverse position to take on the Truth, the Truth does not give a Damn about what we believe and  opinions we form  about it, the Truth is about scrutiny, it stand within the solitary confinement  of that Divine presence we all refer to as God.

So when we go about trying to justify, clarify and or rationalize the action of a people who have demonstrated their disdain for us, then yes we put ourselves in a position to be called everything but Children of Truth - God.

This Fight for African Liberation and accountability is not about Black Folks per-se, it is about Truth and out of Truth must come Justice and for anybody to try to minimize the effect of  Mental and physical oppression, which Black Folks now suffer from, because of the acts of injustice imposed upon us by other people who are not of our Identity and now their behavior has caught on to become an infectious disease among some Black Folks.

  Yet and still, there are some among us who now live in a state of acceptable denial concerning such matters, as we grant the wishes of those Devils who have committed such atrocities upon such an innocent Nation of people.

Some members of that Nation,the Black Nation,in shambles that it is, do in fact, need to be described as being the scourge of the Race.

Black leadership ? The only leadership Black Folks need, is the Truth !!!

The Truth is, Black Folks will not be able to dance with the Truth until we master the knowledge of our Past and that past go back to the beginning of our coming upon this EARTH PLANET and not to be able to know such a Story about our Black Selves, will keep us out of that circle of Truth, causing us to continue to be students of those who have conned and miseducated us about ourselves, thus, causing us to have no Leader to call our own, which is Truth.

By us being such a victim,will cause us to prance around, holding this lying devil degrees and diplomas up with proud,not knowing that they are the symbol of lies and deceit and it is on such a foundation we go out to debate with each other the events of the world as they affect the Black Africans People.

On such a foundation of Lies, do we set out to become emotional involved with the affairs of america and her deceitful allies, taking on such issues of  Saddam and his Iraq, Jews and Arabs, an  attitude toward  america foreign policy relations with her allies, Russia, France and Germany as she strut her behavior toward that institution,whom she has no true respect for,The United Nation and yet we get all emotional with each other, even to the fighting death, concerning these matters.

Yet we can not muster up such passion and emotional commitment about our own affairs, those events that have a death effect upon the Black African Life.

Yes leadership, Black leadership, there is none, because Black Folks Eschew Truth and Embrace Lies and that tell the story about the Black condition in the world, as we have been conditioned to fanaticize about our Black Life condition.

Therefore, what is required of us to change it, we think not, rather than embrace Truth and Reality, which tell us what is required of us to know and understand what our obligation is to ourselves, in order to acknowledge and transform our Black Life, back to recognizing the Truth and living it again, we rather live in a state of control denial.

Yes there are Negroes who still can not look white folks in the eye, scratch when we do not itch, can not keep our feet still in the presence of white folks, think not for self but as told by the white man, laugh at white jokes when there is nothing funny, always defending the action of our oppressors and yet we get offended when we describe what we see and know to be a traitorous incompetent Negro, as being an Uncle Tom, such description is very mild in contrast to such behaviors being acted out by some Black Folks.

 So the question is, what will become the motivation of our action, putting us in harmony with such a brave and unrelenting leadership, I vote for nothing but the Truth.

"THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST" THE MOVIE
Greetings my friend:

Israel is a wake up call to me and my whole crew and family...  to see CHILDREN (8 years old and up) walking around with hand guns, learning to use sub-automatic machine guns, -AND- how to make, plant and/or detonate land mines and bombs is outrageous to me and a very sad state of affairs of the day, age, time and world that we live and have all helped to create and perpetuate

We, on the other hand, live in a society, where at eight years old, we're learning how to play hide-n-go-seek, ride a bike and maybe how to make our own peanut butter and jelly sandwich, along with some Kool-Aid...

And these children are born into a terrorist state and know much nothing else in their everyday lives... this is awful.

I don't feel anything "HOLY" over here at all.  The only "holiness" I feel is what me and my family brought with us when we arrived here.  These people are so hell bent on "RELIGION", that they've long since forgotten about the pure Spirit of a loving God a looooooooong time ago.

We actually saw "THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST" over here, which was kind of surreal...  the natives here HATED the fact, as we did, that Christ was depicted (once again) as a white man and more than a few of us were miffed that Satan was depicted as a woman (complete with serpents coming from between her legs & loins).

We all would have appreciated it more "IF" Mel Gibson kept his word to tell the story "straight from the Gospel" (as he said he would and did), for if that were true, then Christ would have
had skin like copper and hair like sheeps wool (or in other words... BLACK).  Okay, they gave him brown eyes, instead of blue this time... but he still looked like a member of The Beatles or Aerosmith.

Give me a break, puhleeze... already!?

Even over here... all of the "true Jews" and native Israelites are black people, and the other Armanian/European Jews are only of the lighter hew, and came along a long time AFTER the dynasty of the original dark hued Jews and Moors of this sacred land.

When I mentioned the fact that as the filmmaker Mel Gibson could have perhaps made Christ White BEFORE the resurrection, but then let him wake up and walk out of that cave, a black man, AFTER the resurrection; a group of Hebrew scholars and prominent Israelites stood up and applauded me.  This would have at least shown great sensitivity, promise and balance.

Oh well, I then shut my mouth as to not set off an international incident and have you all seeing my black ass on CNN later on this weekend.

But that's asking far too much of this white male dominated society, including the white man, who wrote, produced and directed it. I guess... A movie like this won't be shown until Oprah, Bob Johnson or one of our own produce and show it.

To Mel Gibson's credit however, I do understand why he did this movie, because of the personal miracles that Christ performed in his life, saving his health, his life and looks from a severe beating that left him literally faceless back when we was still a teenager back in Australia (where he left deformed & doomed for dead on the side of a road after being attacked by a gang of young punks who robbed and beat him to the point that they called the morgue truck to transport him... where he awoke).

Mel's story is amazing, and when you read it... you'll see for yourself why this man worth already a cool half a billion dollars decided to do this very personal movie from his own heart and with his own money. God bless him!  If I can find his story, I'll send it out to you guys to peruse for yourself.

However, there were NO black women in this movie at all whatsoever, and the only black men shown were in King Herod's court as his male concubines & boy toys.   And although the man who helped Christ carry the cross looked like a black man in features and hair texture, he was, by far, the lightest/brightest strand of black man ever cast in a motion picture.  This guy was so light, he made El Debarge look as dark as Wesley Snipes.

Even with all of that having been said, it still didn't get in the way of the fact that me and my family recognize Jesus Christ as our Lord & Savior and are forever grateful for the ultimate sacrifice he has made for all of us.  So the distorted message did NOT interfere with our reception of The Messenger and the amazingly PERFECT LIFE/DEATH and RE-BIRTH he lived and exemplified.

In closing, all I can say is although America may NOT be perfect, it is "THE BEST THE WORLD HAS TO OFFER" that's for damn sure... GOD BLESS AMERICA.... Lord have mercy and GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!

God(dess) with you always,


Eric
 
The Bible, King James Version, which many refer to as the word of God, has
several chapters that refer to the color of Jesus. In Daniel (Old Testament) 7:9
says, "
and the hair of his head like the pure wool.
" Revelation (New
Testament) 1:15 reveals "
his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a
furnace.
" Additional references one can turn to are: Ezekiel 1:27 and 8:2.

 
Hoteph My Beloved Sisters And Brothers:

Well beloved it is sad that we as Black AfroDescendants in the Diaspora
U.S.A. has to make choices about our freedom, Justice and Hue - Man Rights
and so far, it seem as if america win hands down over freedom, when it come
to the choices of the oppressed AfroDescendants in america.

It is a well known fact that the AfroDescendant in america rather not deal
rationally with the Truth when it is about our condition in america,
regardless of our miss - educated status, taken to be well quality
education, to the point we have become drunken and blind to the Truth
concerning our status in america.

The sad part about it is, we get all up in arm, ( ready to fight ) when some
among us have been able to cross that lying line of deception and self
neglect but those of us who choose not to cross the line, choose to just get
along in a society that has been proven to be Racist to the core against the
AfroDescendants in america and the Black African Nation in general, such
prevent us from being able to  shake hand with Truth.

We have yet to be able to disagree with honor and humility. We are not
willing to reason out our differences, just irrational emotion debate them,
striving to see who can insult the other the best, with the best being the
worst, such a game, reflect the height and level of our ignorance and not
intelligence.

Well beloved here is my point.

It is a fact, as we stand or sit in america, whatever position make us
comfortable in our oppressive state, the AfroDescendant in america is not
free, yes we carry no authority nor do we have control over  what happen in
and to our life, such is our reality in america.

We AfroDescendants have been so conditioned to accept what is made available
to us by our oppressors and be satisfied with it.

We have learned to cherish civil rights over Hue - Man Rights, Advancement
over completion and privileges over Acceptability, injustice over Justice,
thus oppression over Freedom, this is our america to the AfroDescendants,
children of parents treated as Chattel in an institution created by america
call Slavery, yet we choose to love it rather than leave it and with no sign
of Freedom, Justice and Independence for the children of our Enslaved
African Ancestors.

What a pity and a shame regarding the mentality of the AfroDescendant in
america !!!

There are cries that go out about us needing to concentrate on up-lifting
our communities and we need to concentrate on building a sound economic base
in our community, as our children become more miss -educated, drugged out,
profiled for arrest, imprisoned, and shot at will, such is not a community
thing nor a economic thing but is an environment thing, with no power to
change it in america.

What we refuse to look at is, this type of treatment did not just start
yesterday, this has been an on going thing against the AfroDescendant for
approximate Five Hundred Years in america.

 will we ever get tired of being treated as a child in america?.

The community thing sound good but the reality is, the environment we find
ourselves in here in america, will not allow such efforts to rise to the
level we dream about for ourselves.

Now there is nothing wrong with the dream, the setting is just wrong and
will not accommodate such dream desire, plus such quality of life is not to
be dreamed about but should always be.

There is no democracy in america and america is not a republic, it is a
business, a corporation owned by Racist stock holders, something the
dreamers among us do not and will not accept, be us well miss - educated in
the guise of educated or steeped in our ignorance, gleefully, as Truth
remain immutable.

We AfroDescendants wrestle over making choices between two evils in america
politics, the democratic and republican party, trying to decide who hold the
better bag of crumbs for us AfroDescendants, yet we become halted betwixed
two opinion when it come to where we should stand or even stand at all on
the issue of Reparation, as if that make us look or sound intelligent.

What a sad people we have become, as we joyfully accept our role in america
captivity, pretending to be happy and satisfied, such a mentality assure our
stay in mental bondage, all because we choose america over Freedom for the
AfroDescendant in america and as we go,so go the Carbon Nation, yet we
desire to go no where by remaining in america.

When we question the merit of Reparation, in our effort to sound reasonable
and intelligent, we insult and disrespect our Enslaved African Ancestors and
it also show that we do not fully understand the dynamics of Reparation and
the sacredness of it.

If we selfishly approach the issue of Reparation in our pursuit and fight
for it, we take away its aurora and power, making it out to be just another
civil right request which will assure our defeat.

A sound mind and a strong body does not request Justice, Freedom and
Independence, such is demanded, because such qualities come with the gift of
Life and if we do not enjoy such, it mean it has been taken away from us and
if need be must be taken back, such is the thinking of a well learned
AfroDescendant.

The Forces of the Universe has brought such a Time around again, which fit
the favor of the AfroDescendant and now present the freedom of choice to us,
concerning our condition in america.

With Reparation on the Horizon, we now have the choice to choose Freedom or
america, only a fool will error in choosing that which is best for the
Carbon Nation.

It Is Time To Condemn The Lie And Elevate The Truth !!!

Complete Love To The Carbon Nation

Catch 22
 
Let's tell the truth about Superman
 
 
 
 
As a black American Male my ego would love to tell you that I am the man! I would love to tell you that I run my family; that my children and wife look up to me as the provider, the analyst, the builder and as their key predictor of the future. A future that is designed for those who can predict long range changes in economic direction not just on a national but rather on an international level. As we all know, our futures in this America, depends on us being able to divine changes in order to plan security and liquidity
 
I would love to tell you that my entire family looks up to me as the "superhero". What male does not want to be the hero? Those born in the sixties will remember how we all would run from school to watch and then model our childhood hero's - The Little Rascals, Batman and yes, Superman!
 
Which one of us hasn't tied our mother's best sheet to our backs and "flown" through her house? Make way for Superman... Wonder woman! Remember the vibe? Remember the feeling of power, freedom and importance we had?  
 
I would love to tell you that I am Superman! Would that not be nice? Superman! The "man of steel"! The man who everyone calls when there is trouble to solve all of our problems! "Up up and away!" 
 
The harsh truth my friends is that I am no Superman. None of us actually are are we? But, did that stop us from playing pretend? Did that stop us from dreaming of being the best that we could be? "Faster than a speeding bullet - More powerful than a locomotive!" As our mothers back-handed us the second she saw her beautifully pressed sheet covered in scuff marks placed there by the the heals of Superman's well worn Converse sneakers! 
 
Blang! Bling! Boom! Ya ass is grass buddy! Momma got da leach on ya!
 
 
Brainwashing and the erasure of the Black Superman
 
The concept that I want to pass to you is very simple. In order to understand it, we must dip back into history. Now I know that many of us do not want to think about the past: Shoot EV " yesterday's gone", right? 
 
Well.... The truth is No...!
 
In order to be able to maintain a slave system, the people who created it had to devise a system of control in which those slaves who where most capable to lead a revolt or plan a revolt against them  where kept in check. Aka - prevented from gaining control of the groups of blacks within their sphere of influence.
 
What was done?
 
Simple! -- The slave owners scared the livin hell out of everybody, especially the Black women. The threat to our people was, " if you give us trouble, we will take you momma and your children and we will divide you. We already got rid of " your babies daddy so go head ... mess with us! "
 
Heavy artillery eh??? The whites figured that if they played with the strong, Black female, maternal instinct to protect her young, they would be able to control the Black slaves and of course it worked!
 
Imagine: I am the "Man"! The man who owns your Black behind!
 
I tell you - " If any of the uppity niggahs like EV starts talking about breaking out of this plantation, you will tell me and I will reward you well." Yeah momma! Just make sure to let me know, ya hear, and I will allow you to keep your kids. All the uppity, smart ass Niggahs involved will be whipped and then I will sell off their children. I am the man! Your African warrior ain't shit! Yeah you heard me!
 
Momma what would you do when your new baby - daddy came in beaming bout having a plan? How would you feel when he told you how he convinced the boys plowing the back 9 to take over massa's place next Friday?
 
Oh by the way, don't forget about the preacher. Didn't preacher just finish telling y'all Sunday dat a good niggah did her work? That this is what is asked of us by God. "God's will be done",  he said!  "Just you wait until we get to heaven", he said. "The lord will provide you with a thousand times what you did not have on earth". In other words, "don't listen to no uppity Negro's who are gonna get us all killed"!
 
 
Up Up and Away! (Tomorrow)
 
You gotta choice:
 
1.) You can think that you can fight me, Da man!
 
or
 
2.) It safer to sit your black behind down and stay in line.
 
If you stay in line I, the man, will assure you of a fast trip "up up and away.............!  It says so in the bible! I swear allegiance to God by what he wrote in his Bible. 
 
Let us reason together - If it where not for my Godly living, would I possess this beautiful estate? Would I be placed in possession of all you Black children given to me to raise by the will of our all powerful Lord? Our God who has given ME dominion over the earth to care for his creators, of which you are but one. Ahhhhhhhhh Massa is a good servant so you be one too.
 
A Fast end to a long problem
 
By putting the black slaves into this position, several things where forced into our Psyche's.
 
1.) Intelligence was suspect by the slaves.
 
2.) Knowledge was viewed as something "dangerous".
 
3.) The naturally born Black intellectuals where branded as trouble. They therefore where not allowed by the masses to use their "God given" talents of Anyltization to be able to create win-able solutions to the problem of slavery. That namely would have been for the Slaves to revolt and win America from the wicked slave-holding white males. Our Superman would kick their ass! 
 
4.) The power base and historical reality of male intellectual superiority was quashed by the slave holding class in order to be able to subjugate the slaves en mass.
 
The African male (as the white male) historically was placed by his people in the role of leader. As the leader of his family, he was responsible for their well being. If he did not plan well, his family's lives would be in danger. 
 
In the complex and often harsh environments of Africa, the families lives could easily be lost by any error. Therefore, the male was given special education in order to make long term choices for his family, village and tribe. Any failure by the leadership, wetter he is a medicine man ( doctor), council elder ( government leader) or priest could spell death to hundreds or thousands of people. For this reason the African male intellectual was given the ultimate position within African society just as intellectual white  males are given that place in American and European societies.  
 
5.) The power and sex role dynamics of the African people (but not that of our genetic offspring - the whites) was reversed. The Black slave female was given the ultimate control over the slave class as a way to ensure protection to the white slave holders. She was sadly the first line of defense that they had to prevent a Slave insurrection against them.
 
Since she was not educated to think in the realm of the long term, but was instead given the goal of day to day worker, she could not be asked to be able to predict the long range outcome of the reversal of sex roles.
 
What does this mean? It means that African women (at large) could not see what has come to pass on the global African/ American/ Caribbean landscape regarding the regulation of the male into a sub leadership role.
 
In English - the women can not control the destiny of Black people because we have not and we still do not educate them to look at the long range results of her actions.
 
Some young Black women today would like to argue that all it would take is the cooperation of the Black male to "fall in line" with the program. I argue, that this is not possible! If it where possible, then it would have been carried out within the last 60 years of Black American social progress. Instead of things gettting better, we are failing each other at a greater and greater rate. It is time for a serious wake up call folks.
 
Although I do believe that power-sharing is vital among the black intellectual class, male and female, this is wildly different then the assumption made by many women that the situation delivered to us by the status quo can be continued.
 
 
Black women - we must stop Massa' system to have you head us. If the truth is that it was a system devised to divide and conquer us, then in order to get our societies back on track we must eliminate said system.
 
In it's stead, I would suggest a system in which the best and the brightest will be encouraged to lead us. I caution you all to resist the temptation that is presenting it's self to many of you. The concept that college is the proving ground for the best is a lie! 
 
* In fact I will argue that today we still regulate the most naturally intelligent to the role of outcast and suspect niggah just as we have in slavery. I argue that they are often the ones who are on the fringes of the black community. Placed there by the "average black person" as we habitually have done for the last 400 years that we have been in this mind fuck!
 
From Superman to Thug!
 
The most naturally intelligent children among our ranks are often placed in the charge of a female headed household. As such, the stressed mother has to be able to control her horde of smart-ass children. To this day smart-ass behavior is punished by our black society and because of the frequent lack of a father, she, the mother is the boss who will carry out all punishment. Lest we allow the situation to flow out of her control, in which case Da Man ( Police) will have to be called in to do what we would not and do not want to be done to our children. That is destruction!
 
This in itself would not be a problem if one where to take away the influence of the effects of the remnants of the slave system. But, that is not a possibility. Please remember that the slave system encouraged the smashing of the intelligent children in order to prevent said intelligence from having a negative affect upon the slave system and therefore of the mentalities that are created by said system.
 
 If we understand this, then it is easy to see why and how where created our great folk hero's such as Malcom Little ( AKA MALCOM X), Martin L. King, Angela Davis', The Black Panthers...
 
Are they not in fact the smart- assed bad boys and girls on a mission that the white society feared? Are they not the people most directly ready to fight fire with fire? To fight intelligence with intelligence?
 
 
Are they NOT SUPERMAN?
 
 
If this is true -- then many of our people who have graduated as teacher's, medical professionals, preacher's and other's are NOT in fact our supermen. They are not in fact the best and the brightest! They certainly are not our true naturally gifted leaders but they are rather people who where able to pass through a system of education designed for us by the whites - to create a false intellectual class that could be used to fool us again!
 
"Up Up and..... Away" they fly with their Phd's... leaving the rest of us still in limbo.
 
* Take the carrot and think.... I'm out.

POSITIVELY BLACK

Junious Ricardo Stanton

The Uncompromising Spirit of Malcolm X


If Malcolm X, also known as El Hajj Malik El Shabazz were alive today he would be seventy nine years old. Given his uncompromising outspokenness, his love of black people, his unwillingness to acquiesce to oppression or sell out his values sooner or later the US government would have had to kill him, which they did although government agents didn't actually pull the triggers.
If he had remained alive a few more months he probably would have railed against the escalation of the imperialist war in Indo-China exposing it for the monstrosity it was and admonishing black men for shedding their blood for the same government that allowed the KKK to kill our sisters, lynch our fathers and disrespect our mothers. Malcolm was not one to bite his tongue or sugar coat the truth, he told it like it was, made it plain and broke it down. While others deluded themselves about the AmeriKKKan dream, Malcolm spoke truth to power and called it what it was, the AmeriKKKan nightmare.
As
we pause to acknowledge and celebrate the birthday of this great hero, let us not forget that along with his love of black people and truth, Malcolm X, was a man of action. We need more like him, men and women willing to stand for truth and righteousness in the face of lies, evil and a relentless campaign to brainwash the masses into going along with the Nazification of AmeriKKKa. Things aren't that different from when Malcolm was alive, the oppression, intimidation and mind control seem to have become chronic and effective while the fires of resistance flicker faintly in our community.
We
need brothers and sistahs to stoke them into a full blaze but we cannot depend on someone else like a Malcolm X to do it, we each have to do it for ourselves!

Even though he was tutored by Elijah Muhammad and became Mr. Muhammad's prime spokesman and proselytizer; in his speeches, you can see Malcolm had his own ideas about the plight of the so called Negro in AmeriKKKa and people of color around the world. As Malcolm evolved, he began to differ with Mr. Muhammad's assertion their god would bring AmeriKKKa to her knees.
Malcolm stood up and demanded black men stand up to protect our homes, families and communities. "In areas where our people are the constant victims of brutality and the government seems unwilling or unable to protect them, we should form rifle clubs that can be used defend our lives and our property in times of emergency. Not a single white person in America would sit idly by and let someone do to him what we blacks have been letting others do to us " Words such as this sent waves of fear not only through the white community but to their Negro lackey leadership who were fixated upon the notion of non-violence to the point we allowed psychopaths to routinely beat and disrespect us, bomb our churches and murder our children with impunity. Malcolm ridiculed the Civil Rights movement saying it was a sham that white people actually controlled it. In one of his speeches in Detroit, The Ballot or the Bullet, he outlined how "white liberals" organized and funneled money to fund and promote the March on Washington to deflate the militancy of the movement. For Malcolm the issue was human rights which had to be addressed before and by the bulk of humanity not the US government the main abuser of human rights. Prior to his assassination Malcolm was working on bringing the Untied States government before the United Nations to expose the atrocities and human rights violations it was perpetrating against Afro-Americans. His trips overseas were designed to garner support from foreign leaders of the Afro-Asian block for this move and the US government knew this. Their agents kept tabs on him during his travels and even tried to poison him while he was in Africa. Malcolm knew what AmeriKKKa was doing around the world and at home and railed against her depravity and barbarism.
This is the real meaning behind his statement "The chickens have come home to roost" following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

If he were alive today, no doubt Malcolm would denounce the war in Iraq, not only because he was a Muslim but because this war is symptomatic of the hypocrisy, hubris and depravity of AmeriKKKa. "America is just as much a colonial power as England ever was. American is just as much a colonial power as France ever was, in fact America is more so a colonial power than they because she is a hypocritical colonial power behind it." Malcolm understood the direct relationship between AmeriKKKan hegemony and African impoverishment and neo-colonial vassalage. He knew AmeriKKKa had a hand in the murder of Patrice Lumumba, he realized what AmeriKKKa was doing in Viet Nam, Laos and Cambodia, spoke out and attempted to address it, which cost him his life. Malcolm is gone but like the African icon, Ausar he is risen.
Like Ausar whose son Heru battled evil and restored the rightful throne, Malcolm X has spiritual sons and daughters carrying on the battle, who hold fast to his spirit of truth, action and love of black people. The struggle lives because Malcolm's spirit lives, as long as this spirit is alive there will be resistance to injustice and barbarism.

Hoteph My Dear Beloved Sisters And Brothers:

Well now by dear beloved, it is the AfroDescendants in america I speak of , who has been so conditioned to deny affiliation , not along an obligation to Afrika.

The mind set of the AfroDescendants in america has been so conditioned to love these United States of america and hate their mother Land Afrika, as a matter of fact we have no thought of connection to Afrika, other than hear say and talk, most certainly not Spiritual, which demand an acceptable behavior toward our Mother Land Afrika, which formulate a desire to see her free again and united.

Here is the appalling truth about us AfroDescendants in america, our mind has been tampered with to the extent we no longer think for ourselves and the tampering was in fact to blind side us to the extent we no longer are able to accept Afrika in a positive thought, just a past wonderment, without emotional connection.

The Black Woman and Man has a love fest with america, to the extent we rather live and strive on hope, as we cry for a better life in america, than to acknowledge truthfully our obligation and biological connection to a Continent that we no longer have nor do we show any love for, I speak of none other than Mother Afrika.

We Black Folks rather love a step mother that have shown nothing but contempt toward us. Even as we are treated without compassion, love, nor respect, the Black love for our adopted mother, america, is loyal and without self pride and is unconditional.

We choose to love a mother that do not love us back and only allow the emotion of hope and a desire for a better life in america, with no guarantee of Justice and freedom of choice to comfort us Black people in america, whom many now call ourselves Afrikan americans,which is an insult to Afrika and a contradiction in term as well.

In america, we the children of the middle passage, we rather injustice than Justice,we rather a lie than the Truth about our status and opportunity in america and we choose to deny Afrika and embrace america,a step mother who has a stinging record of imposing evil in the form of prejudice racism, laced with injustice upon the AfroDescendants in america, who are off springs of those, our mother and father, who was in fact brought over to this we call america, bounded in chains, treated less than the animals were and are treated by the Slave enforcers.

Yet we Black Folks rather lie about what it is we must do to receive the respect of our Hue-Man Rights, Justice and the sovereignty of our life.

We choose to lie to ourselves as well as to our children, that such principals of freedom and independence can be achieved here under the command of a step mother who share no common bond with us Black Folks and most certainly love and respect is no where to be founded in the action of a step mother who has taught us to hate our natural mother, Afrika, as our Enslaved Afrikan Ancestors scream out in opposition to our act of denialof mother Afrika, as america show no shame to what she did to our mothers and fathers.

Reparation is our Ark, which will sail us back to our natural mother, Afrika and a Nation State we are entitled to, from the Blood, Sweat, Pain and tears our Enslaved Afrikan Ancestors suffered and endured,so that we may make such a demand in their behalf.

As The Honorable Marcus Garvey So Proclaimed, Afrika Is For The Afrikan and there is only One God, One Aim And One Destiny for the Afrodescendants in the Diaspora,by way of the middle passage and that is Afrika!!!

It Is Time To Condemn The Lie And Elevate The Truth!!!

We Must Cause Trouble Until Our Liberation!!!

Complete Love To The Carbon Afrikan Nation.

 THE COSBY FIRESTORM JUST WON'T DIE DOWN By Joseph C. Phillips

 Joseph C. Phillips starred in the hit series
 The Cosby Show as Martin Kendall - Denise's
 husband. Phillips has also starred in General
 Hospital, Living Single, and The Parkers.

 The firestorm continues over remarks Bill Cosby made three weeks ago
 at a celebration of the landmark Supreme Court decision in Brown v.
 Board of Education. The comedian criticized segments of the black
 community about issues ranging from out-of-wedlock births to literacy.

Chief Elder Osiris, Point By Point.

First of all what some Black Folks of higher means need to know is, this is
not Mr Cosby Fire Storm but america fire storm and the people Mr Cosby is
speaking of and no doubt to, happen to be living right smack in the middle
of the racist fire storm Mr Cosby seem to ignore.

This is not about where Mr Cosby come from or whether or not he has had a
tough day in america or not, it is about the cause of the fire storm and how
long its been burning and who it is that has been feeling the pain and still
does, which is no choice of their own. Osiris


Detractors have charged that Cosby's comments were elitist. Many
responded that the remarks were insensitive and judgmental. Others
 expressed concern that this airing of the black community's dirty
 laundry will only arm conservatives with more ammunition in their
 effort to roll back civil rights. Those who missed the point - that
 black people need to begin taking responsibility for their personal
 lives and stop blaming the white man -- have insisted that 'The Cos'
> > should have admitted that discrimination still exists.

Chief Elder Osiris:

You know it seem as if any time Truth challenge a lie, it is classified as a
detraction.

This is not about Mr.Cosby charge,it is about a condition Mr. Cosby chose to
focus on and I do not concern myself about how many others of the likes of
Mr. Cosby has made such an observation and choice to miss-apply the blame,
that is what this is about.

It is an insult and a disrespect to refer to Black Poor people as dirty
linien, where did you negroes come from, what has happen to your Black Mind?

There is nothing insensitive or judgemental about the Truth and what
Mr.Cosby stated regarding the condition of poor Black People is true but to
imply that poor people desire not the type of life Mr.Cosby enjoy and their
suffering is all because they are not willing to do any better, is the
thinking of a negro fool.

Prejudice Racism is a intrical part of the american fabric and any negro who
think they have escaped the fire storm, without the consent of the
originator of the fire storm is a fool with blinders on and is being led by
lies, concerning enviroment and condition in america that Black Folks are
exposed to, those who are not allowed to fall through the proverbal cracks
in america, to be held up as false role models, to the Black poor, suffer
the truth of america prejuduce Racism.

This is not about the false face of Civil Rights, controlled By White Folks,
it is about our Human Rights, control by Justice and not the law of man but
by Universal Law , as so established by the creator of us all. Osiris



 Black conservatives, of course, have levied similar criticisms as
 Cosby for years and, for their troubles, the left has lambasted them.
 Precisely why I found the reaction of Dr. Cornel West, professor of
 Black Studies at Princeton University, so interesting. During a radio
 interview, West explained that the painful truth of Cosby's remarks
 must be put into the context of who Cosby is (or more accurately, who
 he is not). He noted that Cosby has been a friend of the peoples'
 struggle for years. His words, therefore, were spoken out of great
 compassion. "We know he is not from the right wing. He is not Clarence
 Thomas," West intoned.

Chief Elder Osiris

Away with all of these phony labels, such as Left and Right,
Conservative and Liberal, that is the problem with Black Folks in america we
have become so conditioned to the point we have taken on to mimick the White
Man in all of his foolish games, as we try to fit in.

Tell me what is a Black Conservative or a Black Liberal, the two is reacting
to the same Racist System that has given them a soap box to classify and
stratify Black Folks.

No Mr. West, the painful truth must be put in the contex and proper
prospective as to what is the nature and cause of the problem that Mr Cosby
and so many others of his like, now speak of, as you say they do.

The most damaging of Mr.Cosby statement is when he attempt to defend this
Racist System by implying that Poor People have no one to blame for our
misery but ourselves, no greater lie has ever been told and then go on to
suggest to poor people,they can not blame white people, why not, they are
the source of Black Folks problem in america, yet the so call role models
will not own up to the truth because they hold a contract with the devil.
Osiris


 The issue then is not correct or incorrect or as some would have it,
 left versus right. It is not a question of class, but about how to
 speak truth with compassion. According to West, the arguments of black
 conservatives would have been met with less derision had they only
 reasoned using more tenderness.

Chief Elder Osiris:

What are you saying the issue is not about what is correct or incorrect and
not about Class, it is about all of that, coming out of Mr. Cosby mouth and
all others who think and speak as he does.

Poor people is not in need of tenderness, they need Justice and a fair shake
in life and america enviroment is not the place where they will experience
such an opportunity.

Poor people do not need compassion coming from anybody and most certainly
not the likes of people who fail to tell them the truth about who is the
cause of their condition,instead of lying to them and telling them not to
put the blame for their condition where it belong, most certainly not the
victims. Osiris


 Fifteen years ago Shelby Steele published the award winning book "The
 Content of our Character." He quickly became the whipping boy of black
 "progressives" who took umbrage with his challenge to black people to
 abandon the pride of victimization. But Steele's book is filled with
 faith in our human capacity to seize opportunity as individuals in
 order to uplift the black race. He writes: "Uplift can only come when
 many millions of blacks seize the possibilities inside the sphere of
 their personal lives and use them to take themselves forward." If I
 didn't know any better I would swear I was listening to Cosby at the
 NAACP gala.


Chief Elder Osiris

All of that hog wash is so demeaning and misleading to poor people. Such
what is alluding to in a statement coming from Mr. Steele book, as so stated
by the writer. On an uneven playing field of life, none of what is being
claimed concerning Black people or any other people,is true. Condition and
enviroment plays a very important role in us accomplishing what is being
talked about, concerning Black folks ability, also it all has to do with the
type of authority and control we have over our lives as well.

None of that is true for poor Black people in america, without white folks
consent, talent and ability carry little weight for poor Black people, if at
all in america. Osiris




 In the same vein, the left has mercilessly hammered Ward Connerly
 because of his opposition to affirmative action preferences. Connerly,
 however, does not oppose preferences simply because he wants to deny
 opportunity to minorities. Connerly "believes that hard working, high
 achieving women and minorities should not have to live under the cloud
 of affirmative action and it's insulting premise that we are incapable
 of winning in an open competition." The same is true of favorite
 villain Clarence Thomas who says, "These kids are bright, they are
 capable. For the life of me, why don't we tell them the same thing we
 tell all the other kids in our society." It's not Shakespeare, but it
 sounds like love to me. The fact is that the painful truth Cosby spoke
 was no truer and no more empathetic than that spoken by conservatives
> > like Steele, Connerly, and yes, Clarence Thomas.

Chief Elder Osiris

Conservative and Liberals, there ain't a dime worth of difference between
the two, they both see through the same lying glass when it come to not
telling the Truth about BLACK FOLKS CONDITION IN AMERICA. Osiris



 Cosby's critics may be gentler in their rebuke of him because he's
 their political bedfellow. Their quarrel with him though is very much
 ideological. They may be loathe to admit it, but like black
 conservatives, Cosby has apparently grown tired of the worn-out notion
 that until the last vestige of racism is eradicated black success is
 impossible and any success black people do attain is either the result
 of luck or the benevolence of others.

Chief Elder Osiris

Our difference with Mr Cosby and the likes thereof, is Truth as oppose to
lies and truth must be told to our childeren and whether we tell them the
truth or not, will swing back and slap the lier up against that lying head,
hell our children are living the Truth about america every day, so the more
the likes oF A Mr Cosby, choose to paint a make believe america world to
poor Black people, the more he and others like him, become self condemning.

Hoteph My Beloved Sisters And Brothers:

You know my dear beloved, here is the problem with Blacks in america, we feel as if, well let me put it this way, we have been conditioned to believe, when it come to Truth, it must come from those we have been conditioned to hold upas a Black Icon and ignoring all others, regardless of how Spiritual and well learned we might be.

We only listen to and worship those among us who have been allowed to be projected to us as being our leader,therefore, what ever come out of their mouth is the gospel Truth but not the Spiritual Truth, because out of the mouth of the Spiritualist, in touch with our Ancient Ancestors, flow information grounded in Truth, as it follow the circle of sound reasoning and refined logic.

Truth does not discriminate and information is not prejudice, it is there for those who want it, and the truthfulness of it, is determine by how learned and knowledgeable of the Truth we are, and most of all, how well we understand it all.

You see I am not in a position to quit america,because I have not established a relationship with her on that level,because if you can make a statement that you are quitting america it imply that, at one time you were in love with america, in spite of her behavior and attitude of evil and abuse she has from day one shown toward us the Black Nation.

From the moment after arriving out from my dear mother and became mature to observe and think with my own mind, without it being influenced by somebody else thoughts about my Black Life in america, love was not a part of my emotions toward america.

What sane thinking Black Woman and Man after gaining the knowledge of who we are as Black People and in view of america attitude and behavior toward Black Afrikans in Afrika, as well as in america, how can we love something that was so bold to remove a segment of people from their home against their will and treat them as Chattel, in an institution call Slavery and assigned a value worth to being only three fith of a Hue - Man Being and to this day show no regret of such evil action.

Where one is born, if need be, become the adopted home, it is where one originate from that is the natural Home, so america is not my home, adppted or other wise.

Quitting america? I never established that type of relationship with her, to say now I quit her.

If I do not agree with Blacks in america, here by way of the middle passage, going back home just to settle down to become a party to Afrika problem, then I do not smile on those who run to take solace some place other than in the fight for Afrika Liberation, to the death.

Make no difference where some of us might have gotten our flawed education, in the ivey league schools of america or in the western world,Truth and understanding is not assured to us.

As theAncient Ancestors said to us long ago, from the one you think not and know not, is enclosed within the stranger that is in your midst, Truth, Knowledge and Understanding does reside, not the Icons you now follow blindly.

I can sympathize with brother Randall but I can not endorse the exsample he is displaying to those who revere him as a leader. There is no burn out excuse for a true reveloutionary. While we are some where on a island of calm, Afrika and theAfrikans are still being abused by this devilish oppressor and only a conscious that is dead can remain comfortable, while such unrest is upon theBlack Afrikan Family.

We get burned out and fustrated with america when we want america to embrace us and she does not.

We labor under an illusion thinking if we protest long enough, america will change her attitude toward us and come to love us and measure out Justice to us.

How foolish we are to want and believe such will become the state of mind of america, toward the Black Woman and Man, when she will not acknowledge her wrong committed against our Enslaved Ancestors in the form of Reparation, and even so, that would not be a True sign of change toward us..

How can any Black Woman and Man in their original Mind, allow america to become disappointing to us, as if we had high expectations of Justice to come from her, to the Children Of The Middle Passage, when her pattern of behavior of disrespect, abuse and murder, go back approximate Five Hundrand Years, consistently.

The only soloution to our problem in america is to totally reject her and demand with all of our Mind Might, Reparation for our Enslaved Ancestors, so that it may serve as the Ark that is to carry us Home to Afrika, not as settlers but as the next additional State to Afrika, with a goal and desire to see Afrikans and Afrika to be reunited once again, such is our obligation as the AfroDescendants of our Enslaved Ancestors and such is the prophecy as well.

It Is Time To Condemn The Lie And Elevate The Truth!!!

We Must Cause Trouble ( with the truth ) Until Our Liberation!!!

Complete Love To The Carbon Nation

A Message to My Sistas
by Assata Shakur
http://www.assatashakur.org/sistas.htm

At this time I'd like to say a few words especially to my sisters: SISTERS. BLACK PEOPLE WILL NEVER BE FREE UNLESS BLACK WOMEN PARTICIPATE IN EVERY ASPECT OF OUR STRUGGLE, ON EVERY LEVEL OF OUR STRUGGLE.I think that Black women, more than anybody on the face of the earth, recognize the urgency of our situation. Because it is We who come face to face daily with the institutions of our oppression. And because it is We who have borne the major responsibility of raising our children. And it is We who have to deal with the welfare systems that do not care about the welfare of our children. And it is We who have to deal with the school systems that do not educate our children. It is We who have to deal with the racist teachers who teach our children to hate themselves. It is We who have seen the terrible effects of racism on our children. I JUST WANT TO TAKE A MOMENT OUT TO EXPRESS MY LOVE TO ALL OF YOU WHO RISK YOUR LIVES DAILY STRUGGLING OUT HERE ON THE FRONT LINES. We who have watched our young grow too old, too soon. We who have watched our children come home angry and frustrated and seen them grow more bitter, m!
ore disillusioned with the passing of each day. And We who have seen the sick, trapped look on the faces of our children when they come to fully realize what it means to be Black in Amerikkka. And we know what deprivation is. How many times have We run out of bus fare, rent money, food money and how many times have our children gone to school in hand-me-down clothes, with holes in their shoes. We know what a hell-hole Amerikkka is. We're afraid to let our children go out and play. We're afraid to walk the streets at night. We sisters, We have seen our young, the babies that We brought into this world with such great hopes for, We have seen their bodies bloated and aching from drugs, scarred and deformed by bullet holes. We know what oppression is. We have been abused in every way imaginable. We have been abused economically, politically. We have been abused physically, and We have been abused sexually. And sisters, We have a long and glorious history of struggle on this land!
/planet. Afrikan women were strong and courageous warriors long before We came to this country in chains. And here in Amerikkka, our sisters have been on the front lines. Sister Harriet Tubman led the underground railroad. And sisters like Rosa Parks, Fannie Lou Hammer, Sandra Pratt and our Queen Mother Moore have carried it on. Sisters, We have been the backbone of our communities, and We have got to be the backbone of our nation. We have got to build strong family units, based on love and struggle. We don't have no time to play around.

A REVOLUTIONARY WOMAN CAN'T HAVE NO REACTIONARY MAN.

If he's not about liberation, if he's not about struggle, if he ain't about building a strong Black nation then he ain't about nothing. We know how to struggle. We know how to struggle and finagle to survive. We know what it means, sisters, to struggle tooth and nail. We know what it means to struggle with love. We know what unity is. We know what sisterhood is. We have always been kind to each other, brought each other hot soup and biscuits. We have always helped each other through the hard times. Sisters, We must celebrate Afrikan womanhood. We don't want to be like Miss Ann. She can keep her false eyelashes and her false, despoiled image of womanhood. She can keep her mink stole and her French provincial furniture. We will define for ourselves what womanhood is. And We will create our own style and our own ways of dress. We can't have no white man in France telling Afrikan women what to look like. We will create our own New Afrikan way of living. We will create our own wa!
y of being and living our own New Afrikan culture, taking the best of the old and mixing it with the new.

SISTERS WE HAVE GOT TO TAKE CONTROL OF OUR LIVES AND OUR FUTURE WHEREVER WE ARE. AND WE HAVE GOT TO ORGANIZE OURSELVES INTO A STRONG BODY OF AFRIKAN WOMEN.

America Has Lost A Generation Of Black Boys
By Phillip Jackson

There is no longer a need for dire predictions, hand-wringing, or
apprehension about losing a generation of black boys. It is too late.
In education,
employment, economics, incarceration, health, housing, and parenting,
we have lost
a generation of young black men. The question that remains is will we lose the
next two or three generations, or possibly every generation of black boys
hereafter to the streets, negative media, gangs, drugs, poor education,
unemployment, father absence, crime, violence and death.

Most young black men in the United States don't graduate from high school.
Only 35% of black male students graduated from high school in Chicago and only
26% in New York City, according to a 2006 report by The Schott Foundation for
Public Education. Only a few black boys who finish high school actually attend
college, and of those few black boys who enter college, nationally, only 22%
of them finish college.

Young black male students have the worst grades, the lowest test scores, and
the highest dropout rates of all students in the country. When these young
black men don't succeed in school, they are much more likely to succeed in the
nation's criminal justice and penitentiary system. And it was discovered
recently that even when a young black man graduates from a U.S.
college, there is a
good chance that he is from Africa, the Caribbean or Europe, and not the United
States.

Black men in prison in America have become as American as apple pie. There
are more black men in prisons and jails in the United States (about 1.1 million)
than there are black men incarcerated in the rest of the world combined. This
criminalization process now starts in elementary schools with black male
children as young as six and seven years old being arrested in
staggering numbers
according to a 2005 report, Education on Lockdown by the Advancement Project.

The rest of the world is watching and following the lead of America. Other
countries including England, Canada, Jamaica, Brazil and South Africa are
adopting American social policies that encourage the incarceration and
destruction
of young black men. This is leading to a world-wide catastrophe. But still,
there is no adequate response from the American or global black community.

Worst of all is the passivity, neglect and disengagement of the black
community concerning the future of our black boys. We do little while the future
lives of black boys are being destroyed in record numbers. The schools
that black
boys attend prepare them with skills that will make them obsolete before, and
if, they graduate. In a strange and perverse way, the black community, itself,
has started to wage a kind of war against young black men and has become part
of this destructive process.

Who are young black women going to marry? Who is going to build and maintain
the economies of black communities? Who is going to anchor strong families in
the black community? Who will young black boys emulate as they grow into men?
Where is the outrage of the black community at the destruction of its black
boys? Where are the plans and the supportive actions to change this? Is this the
beginning of the end of the black people in America?

The list of those who have failed young black men includes our government,
our foundations, our schools, our media, our black churches, our black leaders,
and even our parents. Ironically, experts say that the solutions to the
problems of young black men are simple and relatively inexpensive, but
they may not
be easy, practical or popular. It is not that we lack solutions as much as it
is that we lack the will to implement these solutions to save black boys. It
seems that government is willing to pay billions of dollars to lock up young
black men, rather than the millions it would take to prepare them to become
viable contributors and valued members of our society.

Please consider these simple goals that can lead to solutions for fixing the
problems of young black men:

Short term
1) Teach all black boys to read at grade level by the third grade and to
embrace education.
2) Provide positive role models for black boys.
3) Create a stable home environment for black boys that includes contact with
their fathers.
4) Ensure that black boys have a strong spiritual base.
5) Control the negative media influences on black boys.
6) Teach black boys to respect all girls and women.

Long term
1) Invest as much money in educating black boys as in locking up black men.
2) Help connect black boys to a positive vision of themselves in the future.
3) Create high expectations and help black boys live into those high
expectations.
4) Build a positive peer culture for black boys.
5) Teach black boys self-discipline, culture and history.
6) Teach black boys and the communities in which they live to embrace
education and life-long learning.
