Robert Mugabe invokes the spirit of Marcus Garvey

This is a great speech in my opinion. During a speech at an international summit in Harare, Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe gave a clarion call for Africans and African-Americans to forge closer ties so as to advance the cause of people of African descent.  It was nice to hear him say that all people of African descent should be pulling together against our racist oppressors. We have to stand as a collective unit for our liberation.  I liked how he quoted the great Marcus Garvey as well. It would be nice to see this by more African leaders. Many of them come off as cowards who are afraid to speak TRUTH to power. I salute Mugabe for having the guts to say this. I also admire that he has stood up to the homosexual agenda the western world has been trying to impose on Africa. Maybe this speech will make other African leaders get up some courage and follow his lead. We can only hope.



Sandra Bland: Facts vs Fiction

This is a video and post by Rick Wallace. The brother makes some very valid points regarding the Sandra Bland case. Read the following article and let me know what you think.

What is submitted here is the demand that blacks stop jumping on every bandwagon simply because it supports their theory. The objective should always be truth — truth, in conjunction with consistency, is the foundation on which credibility and respect are developed. If we are to be taken serious, we must be willing to engage facts that may not support our theories. We have to be willing to acknowledge when we may have spoken hastily on a matter. Am I saying that Sandra Bland killed herself, at this time, I have to say that I don’t know. What I can say is that I have seen a lot of things that are not receiving enough attention, things that point to the possibility that she may have taken her own life.

What disgusts me is all of the false stories and theories like the “dead in the mugshot theory,” which makes absolutely no sense (see excerpt for explanation). The truth is that it is easier for blacks to believe that she was murdered than it is to believe that a black person took their own life under distress. I have conducted a significant amount of research since this surfaced, and what I have uncovered is that there has actually been more formulated BS from our side than the side of law enforcement. Don’t get me wrong, there were definitely some spins placed on the story by law enforcement, which will always going to be the case; however, some of the stuff that was being circulated by us and all of these desktop psychologists was absolutely ridiculous.

It is time that we step back and begin to break this down piece by piece. At this point, I will say that regardless of whether Sandra Bland killed herself or she was murdered, the video of the arrests presents enough to declare that she was wrongfully arrested, and therefore, responsibility for her death begins with DPS. If at some time, there is evidence that supports murder charges, then we will move for that as well, but from what I am hearing the second and independent autopsy, which was ordered and paid for by Sandra Bland’s family, also came to the conclusion that her death was caused by suicide. I am still attempting to confirm this for myself. I do know that the results of that second autopsy have been kept on the hush, and that says a lot.

Well, read my post and hopefully, it will spark some dialogue that can actually serves to move us in a direction in which we gain ground in a number of areas that go beyond meaningless debate.

The Death of Sandra Bland(They’re killing Sistas too)

Sandra Bland

It is immensely important to discover the truth about what happened to Sandra Bland, and it is equally important to hold all who are involved in her death, at any level, responsible for the role that they have played. However, before we can even get to the point in which Sandra Bland lost her life, we must take an extremely close look at how she ended up in police custody in the first place. Let’s be clear here. Law enforcement officers are trained to effectively deescalate potentially volatile situations, without the use of force, and we know that they are capable of doing this with great effectiveness. We know this because white people can be some of the most obnoxious people in the world when pulled over, and yet rarely are they arrested for their obnoxious behavior. Police officers are generally very tolerant of verbal resistance when dealing with whites. In this particular case, as with far too many other situations involving blacks, the officer’s tolerance is almost non-existent. He asks her about whether or not she is irritated. Of course she is, which is the response with a significant number of people when pulled over and ticketed. As blacks, we must be careful to guard against the conditioned response of blaming the victim for behavior that is commonly overlooked. It ignores the core intent and removes accountability for the perpetrator.

Sandra Bland voicing her displeasure with being stopped is not grounds to escalate the situation, nor is it ground for arrest. If you stopped a person for failing to properly signal, give her a ticker or a warning and let her be on her way. Why is he antagonizing her? Why the command to put the cigarette out while she is still in the car, unless you have already made up in your mind that you are about to extract her from the vehicle. Why is the cigarette important? Normally officers only request that a person extinguish their cigarette after they have exited the, because at that moment, the cigarette could be used as a weapon. So, his requesting  that she put the cigarette out is indicative of his intent to remove her, but he is stating that the reason she is being removed is because she failed to distinguish the cigarette. Do you get where this is going? Basically, he did not like her attitude, he was going to give her an attitude adjustment. He did not like the idea that she was standing up to him.

The trooper then demands that she get out of the car, without giving a reason why. Unless she is being detained for something, she should not have to get out of the car, which is a quick way to escalate a the situation. When she mentions that she does not have to get out because she is not under arrest, he then says that she is under arrest, but once again, he fails to identify why at this time. Now keep in mind, this is prior to when the alleged assault took place, which is supposed to be the reason she was arrested. Are you starting to see the officers intent to arrest her even before he had a reason to?

When she refuses to exit the car, he threatens to tase her. She then complies and he orders her to the side of the road out of view of the dash cam, which is odd. It would seem that the fact that he was having difficulty with Sandra that he would want everything on film, but he purposely moves her out of the frame of the camera. What happens after that is still in question, but we already know that there was ill intent and a pre-existing desire to arrest her before the alleged assault took place.

I believe they killed this sista. This story just doesn’t seem right to me. Somebody is lying.Also that video footage of the cop pulling her over has been edited. Who edited the video? I’m not sure but it seems like a cover up to me. Rest in Power Sandra. We will get to the bottom of this. You deserve justice just like so many others. Here are some other good blogs covering this tragedy. Be sure to check them out as well.

Tell a Tree by the Fruit it bears- Amos Wilson

Black kids1

Too many of us see education as essentially a preparation for jobs, as a preparation for moving up in social status, and as a means of securing a better lifestyle. And certainly, these are some of its major functions. However, I do not see them as the primary functions of education. I think it is vital that we understand that the major function of education is to help secure the survival of a people. When we talk about maximizing the intelligence of Black children we are speaking not just in terms of their ability to go through school and to get better reading and writing averages and go to the right colleges. We are concerned about enhancing their intelligence so that it can serve as a means for maintaining the actual physical survival of Black people. We are now at the crossroads. We are in a pathetic situation as far as the world is concerned. We are in a situation that is exceedingly dangerous, where we are questioning whether Afrikan peoples survive the next century. And consequently, it’s going to take a different kind of thinking style, a different system of values, and a different approach to human relations to get us out of this quandary that we are in today; the quandary the European has put us in. And it’s going to require a different kind of education than what is available today.

“You can tell a tree by the fruit it bears.” Those of us who are familiar with the Bible, of course, are familiar with that verse. We must evaluate education in terms of its fruits. We must evaluate an education that has us at the point today of not knowing when we are going to be blown up; when this world is going to be brought to an end. What kind of civilization is it that as it supposedly becomes more and more civilized becomes more and more deadly?; it becomes less and less able to control itself and it becomes more and more suicidal! It develops weapons and systems that can kill and destroy each man seven hundred times over — if you can die seven hundred times over. Where one nuclear weapon contains the power of all of the bombs dropped in World War II. Just one! And yet we continue to pay taxes to support this system, we continue to admire the people that made this system, continue to want to be “equal” with them, and continue to want to be like them — these people who are threatening to end our lives and our very survival here on earth. They are unworthy of any further leadership on this earth. They must be replaced for our survival, for the survival of our children, and for the survival of this earth!

For the Black man to be in the position he is in today, he has to be “out of his mind.” We have to be. For a people to vote and pay taxes for weapons that are going to destroy their very lives and the future of their people, they have to be out of their minds. For physicists to build weapons that would end their lives and the lives of their children, they have to be out of their minds. For biologists and for doctors with M.Ds to develop bacteria so that populations can be wiped out by disease, which also means that their own children and their future generations can be wiped out, they must be out of their minds. For us to sit here and be unaware of what is going on in the world means that we have to be out of touch with reality. And one of the major instruments for putting people out of their minds is education. It is often the very basis for making people ignorant. It is the intellectual and the Ph.D. that have us in the trouble we’re in today. Who do you think builds atomic weapons — the man in the street? No! The physicist who went to school and wanted to be a “Mr. Spock” figure, only concerned with the facts, only concerned with mathematics, only concerned with being objective, only concerned with having an amoral education, only concerned with an education that has no central values, morality, religion.

These scientists are so denuded of morality, love for humanity, and concern for their own children and the generations of their children that they sell their services to the highest bidder and permit themselves to become the tools of politicians.

And this is true for the other professions as well. Isn’t it strange that the more social workers and psychologist we produce the crazier we get? The more economists we produce the more our people starve in Afrika? You must recognize that things are backwards. But they must be backwards if a minority of people is to rule over the vast majority. The vast majority must be kept in a state of deception, and they must be even arrogant in their state of ignorance, not open to critical thinking and analysis of their situation.
It has been said that science has done great things for humankind. But when you look at it, it has done great things only for a small percentage of humankind. When you add the population of this country together with the European countries, you’ve got maybe 20 percent of the earth’s population. What’s going on with the other 80 percent? The vast majority don’t have even indoor plumbing, not even good scientific farming, not any of the conveniences (but maybe a television set so they may be propagandized) that we take for granted.

Do not look at what goes on in the USA and assume that this applies to humankind in general. The greater percentage of the world’s wealth is used by a small group of people who have the feeling that they have the right to consume over 60 or 80 percent of the world’s energy and resources to maintain their lifestyle.
The Black man must bring into being a new world order. This is the contribution that you can make to America, if you are interested in making a contribution to America. You are not going to make any contribution being a “black-white” man. There are already enough white men for that. The Black man should bring something unique and different to the world. In a sense then, even if we are concerned with the growth and development of America, we should bring something unique and different to it because it is need of something new.

We are faced with Star Wars. We are faced with the situation that the Whites are getting ready to leave this planet and no Afrikan nation has yet moved into the position to move our seeds beyond earth. The White man will bomb this planet out of existence but if he can carry one or two of his seeds to the next planet his people will survive. But ours are left here. America has already planted her flag on the moon. Where is the Afrikan flag? Where is the haven for our people when this earth is polluted and destroyed and overrun with radiation? What happens when nuclear warfare, that is sure to come, emits harmful rays and makes mutants of our children?

So when we talk about education we are not just talking about jobs. We are talking about continuing to live and survive in the world of the future. Can we defend ourselves if the weapons of war are going to rain down from thousands of miles out in space? Can we as an Afrikan people defend your children from re-enslavement any better today than your forefathers defended themselves against enslavement? Will we see that our strength and our ability to protect ourselves against people who may be our enemy at any point in time is virtually nil? Yet we depend upon the kindness of a people who have mistreated us since the first time we have known them.

We are hanging by a thin thread. The more “integrated” we become, the weaker we become; the more dependent we become. One day when we think we’ve got it made at the mint, when we are “holding hands with little Black girls and little White girls” — the switch will fall. And then we find out that we are left completely in the open not having prepared at all to deal with the situation. The Jews learned a serious lesson about that: we can be in the universities; we can create an Einstein; we can make great contributions to this society but that may not keep us from going to the oven.

The idea that we are going to create children who are going to make great contributions to America is not your salvation. They will have to be in a position to actually defend their lives. Education is a very serious affair for us. It goes beyond the everyday thing of equal opportunity. It is at the very heart of our survival.
We must change the order of things so that while we will not menace the world and will contribute to its peace and security we will not be the clients and the protectorates of others.
