We must take the unequivocal position that if the Black race is to perish,the world must perish with us. Blood debts must be repaid in blood. We must never accept money and privileges as repayment for the mistreatment of our people. The past Black generations who suffer for no other reason than the color of their skin must be avenged not because of hate but for justice.
We must be about the business of liberating the minds of Black
children. In order for that to occur, the minds of all Blacks who
interact with them must also be liberated. There is no other way.
It is relatively easy to educate Black children, even about their
Africanity. But, it is extremely difficult to reinforce the
education. Therefore, even sitting in the same classroom, white
children will be ‘educated’ and Black children will be ‘trained.’
The white child will be taught how to rule and the Black child
trained to be ruled. ‘Training’ is defined as teaching a group what
to think rather than how to think, making them dependent rather than
assisting in developing skills which could be used for independent
activity, rewarding behavior that operates against their group’s
interest, promoting individual rather than group achievement, and
instilling negative self-concepts and low self-esteem. The opposite
of the above mentacidal process (training) is education in which the
learning process becomes a liberating force.
Black independent schools are important not only for how they
teach but for what is taught. Their purpose of instilling within
Black children an ‘Afrikan Worldview’ is the most important activity
those children will ever experience. Black parents whose children
are not in independent schools should at a minimum expose them to a
well-structured supplemental Black educational program. Some of the
most dangerous Blacks in the world are many of those brothers and
sisters who finished graduate school ‘with honors’ and yet operate
against the interest of Blacks because of their eurocentric
orientation. The writer does not mean to imply that Blacks should
not attempt to achieve high levels of ‘training’ in white
institutions, but should be aware that it is not ‘education’ they
This past January 12th was the birthday of the great warrior Khalid Muhammad. He was born January 12,1948. I don’t know if there were any celebrations..but there should be. Khalid never bit his tongue. He always represented Black Power and Black Unity to the fullest. And all who love freedom,justice and liberation should respect him for that. He was an unflinching warrior in the face of white supremacy. His speeches always moved me and gave me chills! As far as Muslims go I like him much better than Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan tuned his back on him like a coward when he needed him the most. That’s when I knew Farr-A -CON was a phony. Since he passed away in 2001 I don’t hear black people mention him as much. But I don’t think he should be forgotten. He loved black people,African culture and was not afraid to speak TRUTH to power! I just wanted to pay some respect to a true African warrior. May his spirit live on forever!
