Black Panther: The Revolution will never be televised(Spoiler review)

Black Panther Film...

Black Panther, the most recent entry into the Marvel cinematic universe, has been greeted with the breathless anticipation that its arrival will Change Things. The movie features the leader of a fictional African country who has enough wealth to make Warren Buffet feel like a financial piker and enough technological capacity to rival advanced alien races. The change that the movie supposedly heralds is black empowerment to effectively challenge racist narratives. This is a tall order, especially in the time of Trump, who insists that blacks live in hell and wishes that (black) sons of bitches would get fired for protesting police violence. Which makes it a real shame that Black Panther, a movie unique for its black star power and its many thoughtful portrayals of strong black women, depends on a shocking devaluation of black American men.

To explain my complaint, I need to reveal some key plot turns: spoiler alert.

Wakanda is a fictional nation in Africa, a marvel beyond all marvels. Its stupendous wealth and technological advancement reaches beyond anything the folks in MIT’s labs could dream of. The source of all this wonder is vibranium, a substance miraculous in ways that the movie does not bother to explain. But so far as we understand, it is a potent energy source as well as an unmatched raw material. A meteor rich in vibranium, which crashed ages ago into the land that would become Wakanda, made Wakanda so powerful that the terrors of colonialism and imperialism passed it by. Using technology to hide its good fortune, the country plays the part of a poor, third-world African nation. In reality, it thrives, and its isolationist policies protect it from anti-black racism. The Wakandans understand events in the outside world and know that they are spared. This triumphant lore—the vibranium and the Wakandans’ secret history and superiority—are more than imaginative window-dressing. They go to the heart of the mistaken perception that Black Panther is a movie about black liberation.

Killmonger..

In Black Panther, T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) has risen to the throne of Wakanda. We know that his father, T’Chaka, the previous king, died in a bomb attack. T’Challa worships his father for being wise and good and wants to walk in his footsteps. But a heartbreaking revelation will sorely challenge T’Challa’s idealized image of his father.
The movie’s initial action sequences focus on a criminal partnership between arms dealer Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) and Eric Killmonger (Michael P. Jordan). They both seek vibranium but for different reasons: Klaue is trying to profit from Wakanda’s wonder-material; Killmonger is trying to make his way to Wakanda to make a bid for the throne. He believes he is the rightful king.
Killmonger, it turns out, is T’Challa’s cousin, orphaned by T’Chaka’s murder of Killmonger’s father and T’Chaka’s younger brother, N’Jobu (Sterling Brown). Why did T’Chaka kill his brother? N’Jobu was found with stolen vibranium. The motive for the theft is where the tale begins—and where the story of black wonderment starts to degrade.
We learn that N’Jobu was sent to the United States as one of Wakanda’s War Dogs, a division of spies that the reclusive nation dispatches to keep tabs on a world it refuses to engage. This is precisely N’Jobu’s problem. In the United States, he learns of the racism black Americans face, including mass incarceration and police brutality. He soon understands that his people have the power to help all black people, and he plots to develop weapons using vibranium to even the odds for black Americans. This is radical stuff; the Black Panthers (the political party, that is) taken to a level of potentially revolutionary efficacy. T’Chaka, however, insists N’Jobu has betrayed the people of Wakanda. He has no intention of helping any black people anywhere; for him and most Wakandans, it is Wakanda First. N’Jobu threatens an aide to T’Chaka, who then kills N’Jobu. The murder leaves Killmonger orphaned. However, Killmonger has learned of Wakanda  from his father, N’Jobu. Living in poverty in Los Angeles, he grows to become a deadly soldier to make good on his father’s radical aim to use Wakanda’s power to liberate black people everywhere, by force if necessary.
By now viewers have two radical imaginings in front of them: an immensely rich and flourishing advanced African nation that is sealed off from white colonialism and supremacy; and a few black Wakandans with a vision of global black solidarity who are determined to use Wakanda’s privilege to emancipate all black people.
These imaginings could be made to reconcile, but the movie’s director and writer (with Joe Cole), Ryan Coogler, makes viewers choose. Killmonger makes his way to Wakanda and challenges T’Challa’s claim to the throne through traditional rites of combat. Killmonger decisively defeats T’Challa and moves to ship weapons globally to start the revolution. In the course of Killmonger’s swift rise to power, however, Coogler muddies his motivation. Killmonger is the revolutionary willing to take what he wants by any means necessary, but he lacks any coherent political philosophy. Rather than the enlightened radical, he comes across as the black thug from Los Angeles hell bent on killing for killing’s sake—indeed, his body is marked with a scar for every kill he has made. The abundant evidence of his efficacy does not establish Killmonger as a hero or villain so much as a receptacle for tropes of inner-city gangsterism.
In the end, all comes down to a contest between T’Challa and Killmonger that can only be read one way: in a world marked by racism, a man of African nobility must fight his own blood relative whose goal is the global liberation of blacks. In a fight that takes a shocking turn, T’Challa lands a fatal blow to Killmonger, lodging a spear in his chest. As the movie uplifts the African noble at the expense of the black American man, every crass principle of modern black respectability politics is upheld.
In 2018, a world home to both the Movement for Black Lives and a president who identifies white supremacists as fine people, we are given a movie about black empowerment where the only redeemed blacks are African nobles. They safeguard virtue and goodness against the threat not of white Americans or Europeans, but a black American man, the most dangerous person in the world.
Even in a comic-book movie, black American men are relegated to the lowest rung of political regard. So low that the sole white leading character in the movie, the CIA operative Everett Ross (Martin Freeman), gets to be a hero who helps save Wakanda. A white man who trades in secrets and deception is given a better turn than a black man whose father was murdered by his own family and who is left by family and nation to languish in poverty. That’s racist.

Panther2...

Who could hope that this age of black heroes represents thoughtful commentary on U.S. racism rather than the continuation of it? Black Panther is not the first prominent attempt to diversify the cinematic white superheroics and thus not the first to disappoint. After Netflix’s Daredevil affirmed the strong television market for heroes, the media company moved to develop shows for other characters that populate the comic. Jessica Jones, about a white heroine, was a critical success. It handled its tough female protagonist intelligently. That show introduced the character of Luke Cage (Michael Colter), an indestructible black man. When Netflix announced that Cage would have his own show, the anticipation was intense: a bulletproof black man in the age of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown? And he would wear a hoodie and fight police? Instead we got a tepid depiction Harlem poverty, partly the consequence of institutional racism but more closely tied to the greed expressed by two of its big bad black baddies, Black Mariah (Alfre Woodard) and Cottonmouth (Mahershala Ali). But that was not the worst of it. The ultimate evil in the show’s first and only season is Willis Stryker (Eric Laray Harvey), another black man whom Luke Cage must defeat. Stryker is not only a black villain, but Cage’s adopted brother. Cage must beat his brother to a pulp, just as Panther must kill his cousin.

The offenses don’t end, though. If one surveys the Marvel cinematic universe, one finds that the main villains—even those far more destructive than Killmonger—die infrequently. They are formidable enemies who live to challenge the hero again and again. A particularly poignant example is Loki, brother to Thor, the God of Thunder. Across the Thor and Avengers movies that feature him, Loki is single-handedly responsible for incalculable misery and damage; his power play leads to an alien invasion that nearly levels all of Manhattan. Yet Thor cannot seem to manage any more violence against Loki than slapping him around a bit and allowing other heroes to do the same—even as Loki tries to kill Thor. Loki even gets his turn to be a good guy in the recent Thor: Ragnarok. Loki gets multiple, unearned chances to redeem himself no matter what damage he has done. Killmonger, however, will not appear in another movie. He does not get a second chance. His black life did not matter even in a world of flying cars and miracle medicine. Why? Perhaps Killmonger’s main dream to free black people everywhere decisively earns him the fate of death. We know from previous Marvel movies that Killmonger’s desire for revenge is not the necessary condition to eliminate him; Loki’s seeming permanence is proof.

Panther4...

My claim that Killmonger’s black life does not matter is not hyperbole. In a macabre scene meant to be touching, Black Panther carries Killmonger to a plateau so that he might see the sun set on Wakanda before dying. With a spear stuck in his chest, he fulfills his wish to appreciate the splendor his father described, when Wakanda seemed a fairy tale. T’Challa offers Wakanda’s technology to save Killmonger’s life—it has saved the white CIA agent earlier in the film. But Killmonger recalls his slave heritage and tells Panther he’d rather die than live in bondage. He knows the score. He knows that Panther will incarcerate him (as is disproportionately common for black American men). The silence that follows seems to last an eternity. Here is the chance for the movie to undo its racist sins: T’Challa can be the good person he desires to be. He can understand that Killmonger is in part the product of American racism and T’Chaka’s cruelty. T’Challa can realize that Wakanda has been hoarding resources and come to an understanding with Killmonger that justice may require violence, if as a last resort. After all, what else do comic-book heroes do but dispense justice with their armored fists and laser rifles? Black Panther does not flinch. There is no reconciliation. Killmonger yanks the spear out of his chest and dies. The sun sets on his body as it did on Michael Brown’s.

It is fair to wonder whether the movie merely reflects the racial politics of the comic books that serve as its inspiration. Yes and no. In the movie, Killmonger’s relationship to T’Challa is as the comic-book canon portrays it. Killmonger is a deadly killer in the comics as in the movie, but he is also extremely intelligent, studying at MIT to understand the technology he goes on to deploy. In the movie, Killmonger’s only skill is killing; if Coogler intended to make Killmonger a hood-born genius, he has failed badly.
In the comics, Killmonger also dies at Black Panther’s hands. But KIllmonger dies long after he has come to live in Wakanda, albeit under a veil of deceit, before attempting a coup. The comic thus opens (but ultimately rejects) an opportunity to save Killmonger to fight for another day, just as Loki is repeatedly saved. The movie completely forecloses this possibility, which is odd since we can all be fairly certain that there will be a sequel.

What alternative story-lines might have satisfied?
I couldn’t help think of Ulysses Klaue, a mainline villain in the comics who lives a long, infamous life. He would have been a perfectly good villain to motivate the movie’s attempt at wokeness. In the comics, there is bad blood between the Klaue clan and Wakanda’s royal lineage (Klaue’s Nazi grandfather died by the hands of Chanda, an earlier Wakandan king and Panther). In Klaue, we had a white villain whose bloodline is imbued with the sins of racism. Ramonda, played by the ever-regal Angela Bassett, is temporally misplaced in the movie. In the comics canon, T’Challa takes the mantle of the Panther while Ramonda, T’Challa’s stepmother, is being held captive by a white magistrate in apartheid South Africa. If Coogler had at all been interested in making Panther a symbol of racial reparation he could have easily placed Klaue in South Africa, even post-apartheid, and the rescue of Ramonda—with Klaue in the way—could have driven the narrative. Ramonda is prominent in the movie, but she does not animate the movie’s central drama.  Instead, Black Panther is set on a course to kill off his cousin in his first outing, suggesting yet another racist trope, the fractured black family as a microcosm of the black community’s inability to get it together.

Hero for Who...

You will have noticed I have not said much about the movie’s women. They are the film’s brightest spot: the black women of Wakandan descent are uniformly independent, strong, courageous, brilliant, inventive, resourceful, and ethically determined. I take it that a good deal of this is owed to Ta-Nehisi Coates’s success at elevating the series’ women to central characters with influence and power that turns more on their minds and integrity than their bodies. T’Challa’s sister, Shuri (Letitia Wright), is sufficiently brilliant to make the Q character from James Bond films seem a clever child with some interesting ideas, while Nakia (Lupita N’yongo) is the ethical center of the film, thoughtful and lacking any stereotypical hysterics or emotional cloudiness that so many movies use to savage the intellect of leading women. Thus the movie deserves praise for its gender politics—save in relation to the only black American woman. The character, Tilda Johnson, a.k.a. the villain Nightshade, has, by my count, less than fifteen words to say in the movie, and is unceremoniously murdered by Killmonger because Klaue is using her as a shield and Killmonger just ain’t got time for that. The lone American black woman is disposed of by black-on-black violence. She is also invisible and nearly silent. In the comic books her character is both a genius and alive and well.

Black Panther presents itself as the most radical black experience of the year. We are meant to feel emboldened by the images of T’Challa, a black man clad in a powerful combat suit tearing up the bad guys that threaten good people. But the lessons I learned were these: the bad guy is the black American who has rightly identified white supremacy as the reigning threat to black well-being; the bad guy is the one who thinks Wakanda is being selfish in its secret liberation; the bad guy is the one who will no longer stand for patience and moderation—he thinks liberation is many, many decades overdue. And the black hero snuffs him out.

When T’Challa makes his way to Los Angeles at the movie’s end, he gestures at all the buildings he has bought and promises to bring to the distressed youths the preferred solution of mega-rich neoliberals: educational programming. Don’t get me wrong, education is a powerful and liberatory tool, as Paulo Freire taught us, but is that the best we can do? Why not take the case to the United Nations and charge the United States with crimes against humanity, as some nations tried to do in the early moments of the Movement for Black Lives?

Black Panther is not the movie we deserve. My president already despises me. Why should I accept the idea of black American disposability from a man in a suit, whose name is synonymous with radical uplift but whose actions question the very notion that black lives matter?

Black Panther: Pan African Superhero?

Black Panther...jpg

One of the problems with Black superheroes in Marvel and DC comics is that they may look Black, but very rarely do they reflect the experiences and struggles of Black people. This was a point that was made Kenneth Ghee who explained in Black Comics: Politics of Race and Representation that: “Historically in comic books and movies, the Black superhero operates in a totally Eurocentric (White) context; no Black family, no Black lover, no connection to community or culture…For him (and for us and our children) there is no Black consciousness or Black cause, only a generalized ‘humanitarian’ supportive role from a Eurocentric worldview and perspective.” Given that the Black Panther movie is set to be released next month, I would like to point out that one of the unique things about the Black Panther is that he is one Black superhero who has to confront many of the problems that Black people confront daily. The Black Panther doesn’t just live in Africa, he also lives many of the real problems that Africa has faced and continues to face. Black Panther comics are filled with themes of Western imperialism, colonialism, and neo-colonialism in Africa. These themes are especially prominent in the six episode cartoon series which was an adoption of Reginald Hudlin’s run of the comics.
In the comics Wakanda is the most technologically advanced country in the world because the people of Wakanda are able to utilize their country’s resources for their own benefit. Wakanda was the only African country never to be colonized or conquered, so it did not suffer through the ravages of the slave trade and colonialism which disrupted Africa’s development and, as Walter Rodney explained, underdeveloped Africa. Some have defended colonialism by arguing that colonization was a benefit to Africa because it introduced European technology, but this was not entirely the case. The technology that was introduced was utilized in the service of European domination in Africa. The vast majority of colonized Africans were exploited and impoverished, and they did not benefit from European technology in any significant way.

Patrice...
Ethiopia was able to fend off the Italian invasion and under Menelik II’s rule Ethiopia made many technological advances, including establishing a railway, a postal service, and the country’s first hospital. This was because without European domination Ethiopia was free to adopt European technology and apply it in ways that were beneficial to their country, but the other colonized African nations did not have this benefit. Whereas Menelik was able to establish a hospital, in many colonies Africans were malnourished and given inadequate medical care. In Mozambique the Portuguese failed to train a single African doctor and Guinea-Bissau was even more neglected by the Portuguese colonialists than Mozambique was. Julius Nyerere, the first president of Tanzania, once explained that by the time Tanzania gained its independence the country only had 12 doctors. Wakanda presents us with a glimpse of where Africa could have been had it not been for colonialism, as well as a glimpse of where Africa could very well be with the proper leadership.
Comic book superheroes are typically people who decide to become superheroes due to personal tragedy or by obtaining superheroes, but the Black Panther is unique in that he has inherited his role as a superhero. T’Challa comes from a long dynasty of Black Panthers that have protected Wakanda for thousands of years. The Black Panther does fight the typical super villains that are found in comics, but what makes this character unique for people of African descent is that the Black Panther also fights a threat that Africans had to fight in real life, which is European colonization. For example, one story in Hudlin’s run depicts one of T’Challa’s ancestors defending his nation against an assault led by a European settler known as Klaue. In the story Klaue is a soldier who fought military campaigns in South Africa and has nothing but contempt for Africans, whom he views as uncivilized savages.

Thomas S..
T’Challa’s own story is rooted in Africa’s struggle against neo-colonial forces. T’Challa’s father, T’Chaka, was murdered for refusing to give up Wakanda’s most valuable resource, which is a fictional metal known as vibranium. In Hudlin’s retelling of the story, T’Chaka’s assassination was part of a plot that was carried out by various Western countries that were unable to talk T’Chaka into giving them his country’s resources. When they realized that T’Chaka could not be bought off, their next option was to simply kill him. This brings to mind the assassinations of Patrice Lumumba, Thomas Sankara, and other African leaders who were killed or overthrown by Western countries for refusing to serve the interests of those countries. T’Challa ascends to the throne and has to remain cautious about the fact that the very governments that assassinated his father would be plotting to do the same to him.
Aside from the Western governments that seek to undermine Wakanda to exploit its wealth, the Black Panther also has to confront African dictators such as M’Butu, who is one of the antagonists in the cartoon series. M’Butu is the dictator of a nation that borders Wakanda and he is depicted as being the opposite of T’Challa. M’Butu is greedy, self-serving, and is easily paid off like many of the dictators that continue to rule Africa today. M’Butu is also a close American ally and even agrees to participate in a plot to overthrow the Black Panther. Black Panther not only fights to protect his nation against European invaders, but against African traitors as well.
I am not sure how deeply the movie will delve into these themes. The anti-colonialist message found in the cartoon series and some of the comics was toned down when the Black Panther was introduced in Captain American: Civil War. In that movie T’Chaka’s assassination was part of a plot to frame the Winter Soldier rather than being an assassination that was carried out because T’Chaka refused to give up his country’s resources. Even if the anti-colonialist message is toned down, I still think the significance of the Black Panther movie is that it’s a movie that will challenge some of the ways Africa and African people are typically depicted in the mainstream media. It is also significant in that it has a message that is relevant to all people of African descent. For African Americans and others in the diaspora it is a reminder that there is more to our history that slavery, and for those on the African continent it is a reminder of the great potential that Africa has.

Umar Johnson vs Tariq Nasheed-Manufactured feud?

Umar1..

Dr. Umar Johnson, was born on August 21st, 1974 in North Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was the eldest child of 11 children, and after attending elementary school, he enrolled in a para-military high school before going to summer school in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. There he performed mandatory JROTC (Juniors Reserves Officer’s Training Corps) duties.

After Fort Bragg, he went to Millersville University, in Pennsylvania, where he attained three degrees. One, a B.S. in political science, another in psychology, and a master’s degree in School Psychology. After this, he received an “Educational Leadership” master’s degree and “Principal’s Certificate” from Lehigh University, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Additionally, he received a PhD from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic medicine, in psychology. For a total of 6 degrees in all.
Tariq Nasheed was born on July 1st, 1974 in Detroit, Michigan. And in his early teens, he and his family moved from Detroit to Birmingham, Alabama. Needless to say, the social life a young Tariq saw in his new environs paled in comparison to the bustle he’d grown accustomed to in “Motown”.
Thus, at 17, Tariq cobbled together $125 for a bus ticket to Los Angeles. And it was there he cultivated the pimp personae that helped him curate what he called, “gaming techniques”. He came up with a technology called “G.I.C.2”, which according to him, stands for “game, intelligence, and common sense, squared”. Unfortunately, employing some of these methods resulted in him having to serve some time in prison.
After being released, Tariq continued plying his trade as a “macking mentor”, to the point where he was able to parlay his enormous street cred into an acting role on the “Bravo” cable TV network. There, he portrayed an actual pimp for the filmmaker Michael Moore, on his show called, “The Awful Truth”, which aired from 1999 until the year 2000. After appearing on the show, Tariq put his lessons of “serial flesh management” into a book he wrote in 2000 titled, “The Art of Mackin’” (TAOM), which became a New York Times bestseller.
Seeing that he struck a societal nerve with TOAM, Tariq followed up this book with one called, “Play or Be Played” in 2004. This tome catered to women wanting to know how to find Mr. Right without being a sex toy to hundreds of men in the process. Then, he followed this book up with “The Mack Within: The Holy Book of Game” in 2005. Tariq was becoming somewhat of a guru in what mainstream culture was calling the “seduction” industry, as he followed up the aforementioned book with the title, “The Elite Way: 10 Rules Men Must know in Order to Deal with Women” in 2009.

Thomas Jerome Harris, a.k.a. Tommy Sotomayor, was born on December 11th, 1975 in Atlanta, Georgia. Joanne Malone, Tom’s mother, had already separated from his father when she moved a pre-teen Tom to Phoenix, Arizona.

Now, Tom purports to being raised in a household where he lived under the tyrannies of Joanne’s abuses. He says this is the reason he’d later go on to be in an unsuccessful relationship with the mother of his own child. And when he fell behind on his child support payments for this child, he was thrown in jail.

After leaving jail and graduating college, is when Tom began his radio diatribes that scrutinized Black women, and the Black community in general, for being morally bereft. And shortly thereafter, is when Tommy moved his radio broadcasts to “YouTube”. After 2010, the following he garnered from his videotaped radio shows, had turned him into a bona-fide (half) celebrity. Much to the chagrin of Black folks.

Now, let’s talk about the term “Hegelian Dialect” which was named after the 19thcentury philosopher G.W.F. Hegel. And “Hegel’s Dialectics”, like other “dialectical” strategies, refers to the method of arriving at the truth by employing a contradictory process between opposing sides. Meaning, Hegel believed the best way for people to find out the truth, was by splitting a questionable theory into two diametrically opposed sides, looking at the discussion in between, and hoping that’s where folks could find out fact from fiction.
Mason1..

Tariq..

And in more layman’s terms, philosophers have come to call this the “problem, reaction, solution” method of elitist control. Meaning, the elites create a problem for the proletariat (us), wait for the target demographic to react, and then, they offer them a solution that furthers the (white) fascist agenda.

Case in point, as of late, Tariq Nasheed and Dr. Umar Johnson have developed a “beef” over differing points of view.

Now, Tariq says Umar’s been “bad-mouthing” him for the better part of two years, and has done so mainly by stating that it was his appearances in Tariq’s “Hidden Colors” documentaries, that made them popular. Conversely, Umar says Tariq’s fakin’ the Black Nationalist funk with his Hidden Colors docs, cause he’s employed an all white film crew to make them. Umar also says his history as a “playa” and “mack”, speaks to his being wholly duplicitous when it comes to Black liberation struggles.

Also, adding to the melanated melee, is (Uncle) Tom Sotomayor. Tom says he knew these “Pro-Black” brothas would show their “true colors” at some point, and in an effort to document this beef, Uncle Tom held a live show on one of his several YouTube channels, discussing the finer points of the Umar vs. Tariq battle. And for over four and a half hours, he smiled while people called and commented on these two pillars of the Black “conscious” community goin’ head-to-head.

And on a side note, I have to say that there’s a particular Blog I’ve frequented for the better part of the past two years, being curated by a brotha who’s got boatloads of knowledge on the Black Spiritual Sciences and ancient Black civilizations. Now, his latest post basically talks about brothas in the “Black conscious” community calling themselves “gods”, while (according to him) the white jewish businessman has proven himself to be something more powerful than a god—and that something is an almighty “merchant”.

And, according to this brotha, not only is the white jew a master merchant, but he also owns capital and the means of production that is able to consume the Black “god”. Thus, rendering Black conscious “deities” ineffectual at best, and neutered at worst. And this ain’t the first time this brotha has alluded to the fact that white jews maintain a dominate position over us, cause they’re using the spiritual sciences that we’ve more or less given up.

Now, let me say this: even if jews didn’t practice our spiritual sciences, they’d still be in positions of power over us, at least financially, and the reason why is…

WHITE JEWS GOT HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN REPARATIONS!

According to a New York Times article, white jews were given a total of 90 “billion” dollars in reparations over the last decade—and that’s just from Germany. 

So here’s what I’d ask this brotha if I ever met him: how the hell can you compare Black people to white jews, when we’ve never seem dime one of reparations?

Now, to the Black men and women reading this—let me ask y’all a question: If Black people in america, or anywhere else, were to receive 90 billion dollars worth of reparations, don’t you think we’d be in a much better place financially?

YA’ DAMN RIGHT WE WOULD! 

So for the life of me, I don’t see how any sane Black person could compare us to them. But let me take that back—cause truthfully, I know exactly why this brotha’s comparing us to them. 

And it has to do with what Dr. Umar Johnson, Tariq Nasheed, and this bloggin’ brotha have in common—and that’s this: 

All three of these brothas are white fascist freemasons.
Mason2...
Umar2...

Now, if you’ve read this blog over the course of the last several months, you’re probably thinking, bruh—you say that about everybody. You might also be thinkin’, the better question is: are there any celebrities out there that aren’t freemasons? 

                                               No.

At least not at “national” or “international” celebrity levels.

Remember, the construct of celebrity was created as a means of population control to influence the masses—that’s it. And whatever’s created by these artists, is just the medium to carry out fascist messages. 

But let’s get back to talkin’ about “Hegel’s Dialectic”, or what we’ve come to know as the Hegelian Dialect (HD), as it pertains to the Umar, Tariq, and Tommy beef

Now, the old guard of Black freemasons that were in charge of keeping our people in line, namely, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, don’t have many years left to live. So their white handlers realized they’ll need replacements. And that’s the role Umar and Tariq are filling. So here’s how Umar, Tariq and Tommy fit in the infrastructure of HD’s insidious technology, using the “,problem,reaction,solution” model.

Step#1: Problem

white fascists push for an assortment of laws and initiatives designed to keep Black/indigenous americans, living under the tyrannies of their agenda(s). More specifically, Black americans are being indiscriminately killed by law enforcement, while every faction of america’s media and educational system is geared towards making us hate ourselves more than any other kind of person, cause we have the most genetic power to breed whites out of existence. And to top this off, our access to every resource we need to collectively unite is continuously blocked and/or under-minded.

Step#2: Reaction 

Revolts in Black communities like the ones we saw in Los Angeles, CA.(1992) and Ferguson, MO. (2014), combined with a new “conscious” Black community, dedicate themselves to organizing against white fascist forces. Especially when it comes to exposing the abuses perpetrated on our people via law enforcement, the american educational system, and the media.

Step#3: Solution
white fascists approach Tariq and Umar with offers to make them rich freemasons—and they accept. These same white fascists insert them into the Black conscious community, and promote them as “leaders” of these groups (Sa Neter). Conversely, these same white fascists set (Uncle) Tommy up as the opposition to both Tariq and Umar. So essentially, they’re controlling the radical (Black conscious community) and conservative elements (“Uncle” Tom Sotomayor) of this oppressive equation. Moreover, like I’ve said in previous posts, white fascists know that the only way to truly win any game, is to control both teams. 
Thus, Umar is beefin’ wit’ Tariq, and Uncle Tom is beefin’ wit’ both of em’. 

Now, it’s painfully obvious that whitey’s got a vested interest in throwing every resource at his disposal to keep us from unifying with each other—cause that’s the only virtue that’s gonna’ help us defeat white fascism. Economic plans (i.e. money and credit) ain’t gonna’ work—cause they control the value of that. We can amass literally hundreds of billions of dollars collectively—and we already have by the way—but if fascists devalue whatever monetary resource(s) we have, we’re broke all over again. And we can’t educate our way out of this, cause whitey controls the value of that too. Meaning, if collectively half of Black americans got Phds, fascists would just create a higher level of collegiate degree that justifies keeping us out of certain positions.

*Note: If you’re a young Black man or woman reading this, I’m not saying you shouldn’t get educated or strive to make as much money as you can. Remember, contextually, I’m talking about how the Black Diaspora collectively can get out from underneath the tyrannies of white fascism. Moreover, I’m saying that if you’re in the process of getting an education, understand the game that’s being run on you and guard your subconscious mind. Cause that’s what educational institutions must target to reinforce reasons why you should hate yourself and everyone who looks like you. Now, unity is a long-term goal, but I also understand that Black people above the age of 30 ain’t thinkin’ about changing, or doing the subconscious work required to really change. So what’s needed right now, are Black Nationalist homeschooling collectives that’ll teach our children the three “r’s” without the self-hating messages we got. And those children, with a self-loving mind-set, will be the ones to get us to some kind of real unity. And this is something I’ll write about in a future post.

But even with all the resources whitey has at their disposal, they’re still destined to fail. And here’s 3 reasons why…

Reason#3: white birthrates have fallen below replacement levels for the last several decades—and they’ll continue to fall.

Now, if you’ve been reading this Blog for a hot minute, you’ve heard me say this ad nauseum (and please don’t take my word for whitey’s birthrates falling below replacement levels, go look this up yourself). But what might be different is my saying they’ll continue to fall. 

And why do I say that?

Simple. Cause at the nucleus of white fascism are initiatives to keep Black men and women away from each other. And this is the real reason why they’ve mainstreamed homosexuality and the “#METOO” movements. It’s so Black men, who’ve got the most genetic power to breed them and their kind out of existence, won’t create any offspring with that same level of genetic power. And the #METOO movement, is really there to make femininity look more powerful and attractive to Black men, so we’ll choose that and give up our masculinity.

Now, you might be saying, what a sec’ bruh—white men are gonna’ be affected by these initiatives too. Yep, they certainly are—but whitey’s so hell-bent on keeping Black men and women apart, they don’t realize, those same initiatives are what’s gonna’ keep white birthrates below replacement levels—permanently.

Case in point, for decades, I’ve heard about the klansmen inspired plan of poisoning the water supply of predominately Black neighborhoods, but for several decades I’ve never seen it happen. Now, you might be like, hold up bruh—what about the Flint, Michigan “water crisis”?

Okay, let’s look at that real quick. In April of 2014, Flint, MI. stopped using it’s original water supply co., “Lake Huron” water, to save money. Within a month, complaints started coming in about Flint’s water being “undrinkable”, due to massive amounts of lead “contamination”. And the town’s water supply didn’t return to the Lake Huron co. until October of 2015. 

Now, you might say, well then, that sounds like a successful campaign by white fascists to poison waters in a Black area—and yes it does seem that way. But the reason that town returned to it’s original water supplier at all, was because too many white folks in Flint were being affected by the tainted water. Mind you, the ethnic demographics of Flint are as follows: 57% black, 37% white, 4% Latino and 4% mixed race, according to the u.s. Census. 

So understand, in terms of white fascist initiatives in america, what they do to us, is eventually gonna’ happen to them. And that’s the same reason they’re not gonna’ get into any kind of ethnic war with us either—cause at the end of the day, they know they’ll be too many casualties on their side. Furthermore, they know we’d be fighting with a ferocity we got from their years of abuses towards us. They also know, if we employ our “spiritual” sciences to that battle—it’ll be a wrap. Don’t believe me? Then read up on the Haitian Revolution (1791-1804) sometimes. That revolt was preceded by a Voodoo/Vudun ceremony officiated by a Voodoo “priest” named “Dutty Boukman” (look up “Boukman’s Prayer” sometimes). The Black people of Haiti were out-manned and outgunned by Napoleon’s mightiest army—and Haitians still won. And quiet as it’s kept, the same thing happened with Black people here in the states– just look up the “Gullah Wars” (1739-1858) when you get a chance. 

But getting back to the “water crisis”, they now understand that whatever happens to Black people behind employing any kind of white fascist initiative, will find it’s way to them. And coincidentally, a similar “water emergency” happened in my town, but after several days, the emergency was called off—and I suspect it was for much the same reason.

And that’s why whitey’s fervor to mainstream homosexuality to Black men, is having the exact opposite effect it was intended for—meaning, as more and more white men practice homosexuality, less and less white children are being born. So essentially, whitey’s shooting themselves in the foot by promoting the gay lifestyle and “transgenderism”. Thus, Don Trump is shutting down almost every abortion clinic in america, and he’s nearly banned birth control pills.

Reason#2: whitey’s overdosing on drugs and committing suicide in droves.

The suicide rate in america has risen to a “30 year high”, according to america’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC also says that middle-age whites are the ones most affected by this epidemic. Conversely, research done by a “New York Times” journalist in an article titled: “u.s. Suicide rate surges to a 30-year high”, says suicide rates only declined for one ethnic demographic: Black men.*smiles* 

And when it comes to drug use, in 2015 alone, white americans accounted for 90% of this country’s heroin and opioid overdoses. And that says what? It says that Black americans are seeing the people with the most to live for (supposedly), dying by their own hand.

And why’s this happening?

Well, to be honest, whites always consumed (and sold) 90% of illegal drugs in america. But because of their hubris, avarice, and rapacious greed, white-run pharmecutical companies were hell-bent on creating drugs that were just as addictive (if not more so) than “street drugs”. And they succeeded. Thus, we see more and more of the “superior race” imbibing and indulging in these lethal concoctions, which are killing them off.

And in more layman’s terms, it’s karma people—pure and simple.
Reason#1: “free energy” 

And the number one reason white fascists will fail, especially regarding them and their Black freemasonic brethren—is free energy. Now, what exactly do I mean by that? I mean this: irregardless of how many traitorous negro leaders white fascists put into our communities, and how fake their messages are, the Black Nationalist energies most of them are forced to emit are very real. 

Meaning, if Umar and/or Tariq were to hold some kind of lecture in my town tomorrow, I’d definitely go—knowing they’re frauds. Now, you might say, bruh—that don’t make sense—why would you waste good time and money seeing these freemasonic fakes? 

Here’s why… 

Like I said in a previous post, the great thing about energy is, it’s neither good or bad, it just is. Thus, what I’d be doing is harnessing the Black Nationalist energies these two give out. Then, I’d take that energy, and do something positive for the Black Diaspora with it. Such as curating a video, a piece of graphic art, donating some time or money to a Black Nationalist homeschooling collective, or, I’d write a Blog post—like I’m doing now. 

So, I’ve said all that to say this: nothing will stop the ascension of indigenous Black people, and the precipitous fall of whites.

NOTHING.

When we see whitey not only tanning excessively, but injecting silicon in their lips and butts to look like us, and/or doing everything they can to dress, dance, talk and sing like we do. And when we see every national chain store (i.e. Wallmart, Target, Old Navy, etc.) using Hip-Hop vernacular to sell their wares—and we see white folks actively cannibalizing their communities, we know they’re “goners”.

Now, like I’ve said previously, whitey’s not gonna’ go quietly–but it’s when we see them fighting hardest (like they are now) that we know they’re in their death throes. And like I’ve also said so many times in the past: the devil’s time is up!

And it’s about time.

Later…

Prince Harry finds his Mulatto princess: Power move to depopulate Africa?

Royals2..

Social media is going crazy over the news about Prince Harry being engaged to actress Meghan Markle.  It seems many black women and some black men are excited that he is marrying a biracial woman.  They say this is  a big sign of progress for black people.  This is really sad to see this type of mentality is so pervasive.  First things first.  Markle is biracial and not a black woman.  She doesn’t even have any noticeable black features. She looks like she could pass for Puerto Rican of Italian.  And she even says that she is a biracial woman.  But this is NOT black progress.  The British royal family got most of their riches from slavery.  Their wealth comes from the murder and enslavement of African people.  Marrying into this racist parasitic family is not a sign of black empowerment.

Royals1...

Also check out this video(above). I’m not sure if many of you are aware of the fact that Prince William wants to depopulate Africa.  Apparently he believes that that are too many Africans and they’re destroying the ecosystem.  So he says.  So Africans are to blame for the environment.  It’s not the powerful European Jews/Europeans that are putting chemtrails in the air.  It’s not all the toxic garbage they allow to be dumped in the ocean and kills the aquatic life. It’s not all the processed meat,GMO foods and deadly vaccines that are spreading pain and misery.  So it’s the Africans??  Give me a damn break!  This is just a power move to confuse black people.  Prince Harry getting engaged to this half-black woman is just a way to make the masses of black people think the royals are our friends.  To make us think they care about the plight of our people.

Interracial union..

So I hope my subscribers aren’t falling for this.  I would assume that most of you are intelligent to know that this is nothing to celebrate.  Miss Meghan Mulatto marrying this racist family is not helping the African diaspora.  She’s just some biracial gold digging woman who saw an opportunity to marry into a wealthy family.

My Skin is My Sin- Is it time to go underground?(Part 2 of 2)

Ninja1...

I’ve been on social media for over a decade. I have been in contact with black people on WordPress,Youtube and Twitter.  And I’ve had subscribers share my posts on Twitter,Tumblr and Facebook.  I have had some great conversations with black people here in the United States as well as Africa,Canada,London,Brazil and Jamaica.  We have talked about many subjects.  On my blog I have covered black power,black love,black families,African culture,black leaders,black business,survival skills,police brutality,politics,prison population,African history,racism,slavery,interracial marriage,biracial people,conspiracies and of courseEuropean global power. Through my years of research I realize that the government is spying on everyone.  The can track your whereabouts with your cellphone.  The FBI and CIA are also recording all your phone conversations.  And all your text messages are sent to a central database.  They also can hear your conversation at home with Smart TV’s.  They are constantly spying on us everywhere.

Ninja2...

All this unnecessary surveillance has gotten out of control. All of our information is being consumed by the government. We must keep in mind that most of the social media is owned by white people.  YouTube,Instagram,Twitter,Tumblr,Wordpress,Google,Snapchat and Facebook are all owned and controlled by Europeans.  With so much surveillance you can’t really make any moves without them watching you.  Not to mention they can find most people using their email.  At times it feels like you can’t go anywhere without a closed caption camera in your face. There are cameras in banks,schools,hotels,airports,hospitals,restaurants and bars.  We are really living in a prison planet.

And if all this surveillance wasn’t enough people you still have people willingly giving up their personal information.  They have trained us to give up our information voluntarily and can use that information to create a personal database about the person.  The video(above) is an Apple advertisement for the new iPhone X.  It shows that that you can unlock it with facial recognition.  Sounds pretty neat right?  I think it’s a bad idea.  The first iPhones could be unlocked with a password.  Then they had the iPhones that could be unlocked only with a person’s thumbprint.  Now they come out with phones with facial recognition.  It seems to me they are slowly collecting data on everyone.  I also would tell people to beware of these DNA tests that have become popular in the last few years.  Companies like MyHeritage,23andMe,AncestryDNA and Living DNA are not always accurate.  Just be mindful when using them.  I have a funny feeling they are collecting the DNA of people and studying their genes.  Who knows?  They could use your DNA to create a disease that only attacks people with certain DNA strands.

FBI1...

So I just want to know your thoughts.  Do you think we need to go underground?  How can you have a movement without racist government agencies(FBI,CIA) watching your every move?  I know some people who have left Youtube because of all the restrictions.  Then there are others who have stopped blogging at WordPress due to frustration.  Some of our people feel so beat down and they’ve decided to give up.  I get frustrated just like anyone else.  I’ve thought about leaving WordPress and Youtube at times. Trying to wake people up can get very tiring and it starts to wear on you. It’s not that I want to give up it’s just I want some practical solutions. I want our people to be free mentally and physically.  And it seems black people don’t want to change.  Not all…..but too many of us.

Bloggers..

Kemet1...

Do we need our own social media?  I have heard black people mention sites like Blaqspot.com.  And the conscious black dating site Kemet Klique.  I don’t know if they are totally 100% Black operated.  If someone knows please tell me.  I still need to do research on these black social media sites.  But I’m asking all my fellow bloggers.  I know I have a lot of intelligent subscribers.  I know some of you have some great ideas.  So I’m asking Onitaset,Land of Kam,Hung Like Jesus,Negress,Cree,Shelby Courtland,Trojan Pam,Kelley,CC Saunders,Amos Magazine,OriginalBlackWoman,TruthAngel,BlackMyStory,Melanin Man,Lumumba Afrika,Sparks,1TawnyStranger,King Lo the Rastar,Kween Jasira,Malaika Mutere,Sunny Delyte,Clifford Green,M’Bwebe Ishangi,Roshumba Monique,FourthAngelsBowl,Moorbey,Nidotopian Warrior,Universal Jones and Tired Sista for your thoughts.  I’m open to any suggestions.  Should we leave YouTube and WordPress?  If we do,how do we communicate with each other?  Should we do it through email?  I ask because we need our own private spaces to communicate without outside interference. We are all being watched at every turn.   maybe we need to move in silence like ninjas. Any black person on social media that is trying liberate the minds of our people are seen as a threat. They don’t seem to care if you’re a Moor,Pan African,Hebrew Israelite or into Kemetic spirituality. All that matters is you’re trying to inform the black collective and open minds. They draw strength from our confusion.  Confusion is the enemy to revolution. We need some real solutions.  I’m open to hear anything at this point.  I’d love to hear your suggestions.

 

Oshun-Sango

No pressure, you don’t have to love me
Just give me some time, just make me feel lucky
When you lay with me night
And when the sun comes up to meet the light
You say that you don’t care
I’m big enough to handle it
Just play in my hair and kiss me while the candles lit
Your secrets safe with me and I won’t tell
I don’t mind if you hurt me it’s my own fault that I fell
And I tell myself I need you, but you don’t feel the same
And double standards taught me I should let you play the game
But I’m not ashamed of playing the fool
Just call me beautiful
You tell me things like you’ll leave her when we both know that’s not true
And make promises of the things we both know you won’t do
Boy it’s cool, I’ll crumble alone
And you gone live your life and only fuck when in the zone
And yeah you make me moan
I put you on a throne; you won’t pick up your phone
But baby you make me feel grown
So I persist to give you everything you want
Even though you kept it real with me and you been blunt
Saying that we won’t be together and this is only lust
And never equals never
I’m on the same page as you
There’s nothing that I can explain to you
To show you why

Oshun...

I just keep on giving
I cannot keep living for you
Got my mind spinning round
You gon’ let me drown
But I’m sick of falling
I wanna rise to love
Rise to love
Rise

(Verse 2)
A weak woman goes where she is smiled at
But I’ve never seen a smile quite like yours
Said he loves me, he loves me not
Well he’s not sure but he knows he wants me
Yeah he said I’m making him hot hot hot
And so I let him take my top off
I don’t know thinking maybe things will pop off
Or sparks from the physical signals to his mental for a certain type of spiritual relationship
But, he just want the rhythm of my hips
Placing seldom kisses upon my lips
You know that quick fix satisfaction
Bridging to nowhere, a fatal attraction
Like whoa there, why did we go there so fast?
We knew that purely matter never ever last
Now morning glass outside looking in
While your bragging bout my ass to your friends
And I know this all begins with my issues with men
That’s why

(Chorus 2)
I keep on defending
The fact that I’m depending on you
I know it’s true that
A weak woman goes where she is smiled at
But I’ve never seen a smile quite like yours
Whether you love me or love me not
I’ll adore you forever more

(Chorus 1)
And I’ll just keep on giving
I cannot keep living for you
Got my mind spinning round
You gon’ let me drown
But I’m sick of falling
I wanna rise to love
Rise to love
Rise
