Afrikan Centered Biological Nationalism (ACBN): A Primer, seeks to examine what the author posits is the central problem in achieving Afrikan sovereign power. Namely, in answering the question, “Who is Afrikan?” More specifically, the book asks, “Whom exactly are we trying to liberate and/or empower?” This book hypothesizes that what is missing is a definition of who is Afrikan and using that definition as a basis for a viable and practicable social theory which all Afrikans, regardless of their location and political consciousness, can use to organize their behavior in the context of a politically and economically hyper-competitive world—a world which always has and continues to use culture and identity as the basis for social organization and group power. Afrikan Centered Biological Nationalism (ACBN) offers one such social-political theory for consideration. ACBN seeks to revitalize the discussion of Afrikan liberation and Black Power in a way which can achieve real political power for Afrikan people.
The black man is re-created because he’s separated from his African self…that’s the process. You cannot be an AFRICAN and a SLAVE at the same time. You cannot be truthfully and pridefully an African and relate to each other as African people the world-over and be the dupes and subordinates of European [and other] power – it can’t happen. The ruling of Africans the world-over is brought through the process of FALSE INDIVIDUALISM and SEPARATING THE AFRICAN IDENTITY. The slave experience wasn’t just an exploitation of labor but it was ultimately a BRAINWASHING procedure. What is happening to the African during this process: why is the African losing language, culture, social organization, perspectives, religion, etc.? YOU WILL SEE AN AFRICAN BEING NIGGERIZED – BEING TURNED INTO A SERVANT! If you are at one with your identity, no other identity can be placed in you. It’s only when you become separated from your African identity that you leave a vacuum for another identity to be introjected and inculcated into your personality.
In order for the servility and inferiority complex, the loss of self-confidence and pride, the loss of a sense of mastery and collectivism, we had to first be separated from our African identity by the people who would use us. This was done by having us become ignorant of our African culture and by degrading and associating everything African and black with negativity. The associations to things African and black is such that many want to escape from things African and black. Through rewards and punishments, the Europeans [and Arabs] have separated the African from his identity. They’ve effectively loaded the African identity with negative associations that even the African doesn’t want to identify with it. WE GET INTO ABSTRACTIONS: “I’M AN AMERICAN; I’M A HUMAN BEING”–ANYTHING BUT AN AFRICAN! It’s this separation that provides the energy for others to dominate us and you’ll see it early in African children. WE ARE POSSESSED – ALIENATED! – Dr. Amos Wilson
