Did you hear about this? A fifteen year old black girl was raped on Facebook live! And people watched this and did nothing! This is disgusting! This is heartbreaking to say the least. Then when you think of the multiple black girls missing in Washington D.C. it makes matters much worse. I know a lot of are frustrated right now. We have to protect our children at all costs. They are being kidnapped for organ harvesting or being sex slaves. The possibilities are endless. We can’t let our babies be taken like this. It got me thinking if we need our own black militia groups. Maybe we need some type of black neighborhood watch across the country. We actually need it worldwide to be honest. But we need some type of organization from the grassroots level. And we need to expose any black person helping our enemies hurt our children. We need a code of conduct of in the black community. If you harm black children…you deserve DEATH! Whether you are a black man or woman for that matter. You are a traitor and must be dealt with harshly. We need the black warriors to stand up now. We can’t always rely on the police. We can give information to authorities if we have it. But we all know the police come after the fact. They show up after the incident is over. Which is we have to do some things on our own. We need to be properly trained on firearms. On how to use guns,knives and self defense tactics. We need our entire families trained in survival.
Do you think it’s important that black people know self defense? Should it be taught to our children? Do we need our own black neighborhood watch? Something needs to be done? We can’t just stand by and watch our children be raped and killed and do nothing. We have to protect them no matter what. Even at the cost of our own lives. I’m open to any ideas and suggestions. I would love to hear your thoughts on this urgent issues.
Where are these black girls? Who took them? This is a serious issue! And it doesn’t seem to be getting much media attention as it should. It has been on a few Facebook and Instagram accounts. But this should be getting mass media attention. But of course if these were little white girls it would be all over the media. It’s obvious that black lives do NOT matter in Amerikkka. This should be a huge issue for black men and women. We must protect our children. We can’t just rely on racist cops and politicians to help us. If they can help then that’s fine. You can let authorities know if you have any information. But they are still all just extensions of white supremacy. But at some point we have to do some things on our own. We need to start policing our own neighborhoods. And get rid of these rapists,pedophiles and kidnappers among us. It doesn’t matter if the culprits or black or white. Or if it’s a man of woman. The black devils in our community have to be exposed! I have NO sympathy or patience for those that harm children. I don’t give a damn what color you might be. It’s time for real warriors to STAND UP! Black men should be upset right now! You should be pissed off! What happen to them?Some say it could organ harvesting. Others say it could be underground sex trafficking. They could be raped or murdered for all we know.
Marchelle Tigner is beautiful but deadly. This beautiful sista is not to be messed with! Tigner is a certified firearms instructor. She lives in Savannah,Georgia. She trains black women on how to shoot guns and rifles correctly. She is doing a great service in teaching self defense to the community. Her business is called Trigger Happy Firearm Instruction. So I salute Marchelle! For helping our community step up our self defense game! Much respect from me!
“The controllers of this society have made use of psychological warfare to erode and destroy the will and mind of Black people. This is menticide pure and simple. Once the victims discover the truth, we are forced to change our lives. But, the victim fears change because the victim doesn’t know where that change will take him or her. Indeed we fear the unknown. The victim seeks to deny but denial of this reality is problematic because the victim is reminded everyday. The victim is caught in an internal double bind, damned if they don’t, damned if they do.”- Olomenji, From an essay entitled Mentacide, Genocide and National Vision: The Crossroads for the Blacks of America.
A few weeks ago I was talking with a friend of mine about self hatred. She told me that she has heard anti-black comments from family and friends. I have also heard comments from family as well as co-workers that reek of self hatred. So I decided I would share some cooments I’ve heard over the last ten years. I’ve heard some really ignorant comments from black co-workers. These are just a few short conversations I’ve had.
I was eating lunch in the break room with a black male co-worker. There’s no one else in the room but us two.
Co-worker: Hey man,you ever screw a white girl?
Kushite: No I haven’t. I don’t really like them.
Co-worker: What?? That’s crazy man! You got to try a white girl at least once. I get tired of black women. Change it up a bit. It feels good giving it to these white girls! (laughing)
Kushite: No I’m good. They’re not my thing. I’m more attracted to black women. White girls do nothing for me. But you do what you want.( He just looked at me and shook his head in disbelief)
During a break I was talking with an African(Nigerian) co-worker. I noticed a magazine on the desk. As I flip through the magazine I see a picture of actress Lupita Nyongo.
Kushite: Now this is a beautiful woman! She is truly stunning…don’t you think?
African woman: Yes she’s kind of cute…not bad. But you know where there are beautiful woman? Have you heard of the Hausa tribe?
Kushite: Yes I believe so. Aren’t they a tribe in West Africa?
African woman: Yes they are. Many of them are so beautiful. Many are very light skinned with thin lips.
Kushite: So you’re saying they look white? Come on now!
African woman: (very defensive) No No! Not what I meant. I just mean they are very beautiful. Light skinned with pointy noses and thin lips,you know? That is all I meant.
Two co-workers (black men) were by a cubicle and talking. I was a few feet away behind them. They couldn’t see me. An African woman co-worker walked by them. She was a very dark skinned woman.
Black man #1- Did you see how dark she was?
Black man #2- Good Lord! She was dark as night! (laughing)
Black man #1- Yeah she was left in the toaster oven too long! That’s too black!(laughing)
Black man #2- Burnt to a crisp! (both men laughing)
As a side note,Black man #1 has a biracial daughter with a white woman. And is currently dating a Mexican woman. He doesn’t even look at black women. Black man #2 as a daughter with a black woman although they have since broken up. He told me he is currently engaged to a mixed woman. Mixed with what?? He told me she mixed with white and Mexican. He even showed me a picture of this below average looking woman. She looks pretty white to me. Both of these “men” are pathetic examples of the black race.
These are just a few examples that come to mind. Can you name an instance of black self hatred? Or maybe a comment that someone may have made that sounds anti-black? Something insulting about nappy hair? Or something degrading about skin color? I’m sure you’ve heard these comments before. I’d love to read your examples.
Umoja Karamu (oo-MOH-jah kah-RAH-moo) is a celebration of unity within the African-American family, community, and nation. Umoja Karamu is a Swahili term meaning “unity feast.” Many African Americans celebrate this day as an alternative to the national Thanksgiving Day holiday. The unity feast may also be observed during Kwanzaa celebrations in late December.
The concept of African and African-American unity is centuries old. But during the 1960s and 1970s, it was a major focus of black nationalists. During the 1980s and 1990s, Afrocentric scholars such as Ishakamusa Barashango, lecturer, author, and founder of Philadelphia’s Temple of the Black Messiah, drew further attention to the theme.
Barashango, who died in 2004, argued that African Americans and black people of the diaspora should reject such European-American holidays as Thanksgiving and concentrate instead on understanding Africa’s culture and values that are the distinctive heritage of black people.
In 1971 Brother Edward Simms Jr. of the Temple of the Black Messiah in Philadelphia developed Umoja Karamu to celebrate the African-American family and home. According to Barashango, Simms defined the purpose of Umoja Karamu as “an effort to inject new meaning and solidarity into the Black Family through ceremony and symbol.”
The date for the holiday, the fourth Sunday of November, was established by the Temple of the Black Messiah in Washington, D.C. African Americans in other cities, including Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Chicago, soon followed the example.
The celebration is based on five periods of African-American life, each represented by a color.
