10 Signs to look for in Black Consciousness

Awake9....

Over the years I’ve seen black people who were full of self hatred make a big change.  Some gain black consciousness through books or films.  But one thing  I’ve noticed is that black people who really change their consciousness is that their lifestyle changes as well.  As well as their opinions and world view.  Here’s a short list of some of the things I went through during the elevation of my own consciousness.  And things I’ve seen in others.  Feel free to list any things that come to your mind in the comment section.

Awake1.....jpg

1.Many begin to have a stronger cultural pride. They may even change the way they dress or learn an African dialect.   They start to talk about black power and black unity a lot more.

Awake2.....jpg

2. Many times their eating habits will change.  As they gather more information on a holistic health they will stop eating at fast food restaurants and eat more fruits and vegetables. They eat organic food over GMO poison.

Awake13...

3.They will start to develop a thirst for knowledge.  They will want to learn as much as possible about black history,black heroes and all the great African civilizations.  Knowledge of self becomes very important.

Awake5....

4.  After learning their true history they may become upset from the lies they were told by the “public fool system”.  They realize(real eyes) they have been manipulated. After doing extensive research they have become “awaken” and can see through the lies and propaganda from the racist media and Hollywood.

Awake11...

5.  After much studying they learn to appreciate the beauty and power of their melanin.  They realized they are blessed to have sun-kissed skin and black genetics run through their veins.

Awake8....

6.They no longer hate their natural African textured hair.  They now know their hair acts as an antenna.  They know they have 9 Ether cosmic hair while other races have fur.

Awake4.....

7.  Interracial marriage(swirling) begins to look strange to their eyes.  After realizing black power and unity are crucial….interracial couples look foreign to them.  They see that many of their people suffer from mentacide and don’t realize they are destroying themselves by mating with other races.

Awake7....

8.  As their consciousness grows so does their maturity level.  They stop acting like little boys and girls and act like responsible men and women.  They desire to have meaningful loving connections with black people. No more one night stands and casual flings. Whores(male or female) are not truly conscious beings.

Awake10...

9.  They begin to study herbal medicine.  They realize that hospitals aren’t in the business of curing people.  They now know that herbal immunity is better than deadly vaccines. And that hospitals are disease management.

Awake6....

10.  They know that Black Love,black unity and self respect is of utmost importance. They also realize that black people are the true standard of beauty and we are the original people of the planet.  And the black man and woman need each other in this physical,spiritual and psychological war!

Clarification Needed:Genuine Conscious Brothers vs Hotep Negroes(Part 2)

The last few years I’ve been hearing this term called “Fake Hoteps”.  I’ve also heard other terms like Hotep Niggas, Ankh Negroes,Phony Conscious brothers etc.  In the above video film producer/author/pick up artist Tariq Nasheed pokes fun at the conscious community.  He goes on to say that there are black men who claim to be conscious or “woke” but really aren’t.  I can’t lie, there’s some truth to what he says.  Tariq says he didn’t make his Hidden Colors films for the conscious community. And I believe him.  Tariq has written other books on how to pick up women and get them to do what you want.  One of his books it titled The Art of Macking.  Although I wouldn’t describe Tariq has a conscious black man but he brings up valid points in this video.  He watches videos by real African scholars,collect notes then makes a film from it.  And he’s making money in the process. I’m not hating on him.  Most of the black history he had in the original Hidden Colors I already knew.  I already know 90% of everything in all his films.  So he’s not teaching me much but I think it’s good that he was able to educate some brothers and sisters.

Hotep1

Look at that pic above.  This is the type of memes I found while searching the internet. Yeah I’m sure many of you think he looks silly right? Don’t get me wrong now.  I do consider myself a conscious black man.  But I have a sense of humor and can laugh at myself.  I think many people think conscious people are super serious 24/7.  No that is not the case.  Conscious people like to laugh,tell jokes,have dinner with family and friends,make love and see a good movie.  We do everything that most other people do.  And I try to be open minded as best I can. But I still have my morals and belief system.   And if you’re a genuine conscious brother you will hold fast to your ideals. Now back to what Tariq was talking about. He says half of the conscious community is full of crap. I think he’s talking about the guys who have become well known in the conscious circuit.  Some of the names are guys like Brother Polight,Minister Enqi,Sara Suten Seti,Professor Griff,Red Pill and Blue Pill,King Noble,Iman Bashir..among others.  A lot of times they have lectures and debate against one another.  Some of them follow Kemetic knowledge,some are Moors or Hebrews.  And they debate each other on who has the best solution for black people.  It’s basically a knowledge battle.  And one of the ring leaders is a guy named Sa Neter. He’s known as the “Don King of Consciousness”.  It was entertaining to watch some of these debates at first but it quickly got old real fast!  They maybe cashing in by having these debates but what’s the end game?  Shouldn’t we be talking about nation building?  What about a black nation?  Rebuilding another Black Wallstreet?  Nope!  These guys are too busy verbally masturbating when we should be concentrating on solutions for our people.  They can’t even put aside their religious views and find common ground.

Umar Johnson used to hand out with these guys but he said he cut them off once he realized they weren’t about moving black people forward. I honestly can’t be mad at Umar for that. Tariq Nasheed also talked about fake hoteps who manipulate women to get them in bed.  Manipulation?? That’s kind of funny coming from a guy who writes about how to get women in bed himself.  But I digress.  He is correct that these some of these fake conscious guys do use women. They like to say they have “knowledge of self” but are really just saying that to sound deep. They may have read one or two books on Africa and watched Hidden Colors and now they think their scholars.  It’s also a way to impress women to get what they want from them.  To be honest there’s nothing new about men manipulating women to get them in bed.  Many men will say anything to achieve that goal.  And they come from all walks of life.  There are men who are cops,plumbers,garbage men,judges,athletes,lawyers..who all lie to women.  And all races of men do this as well. White men,Mexicans,Puerto Ricans,Asians etc.  So what is the big deal with fake hoteps doing it?  I think many women find it hurtful because these guys CLAIM to be conscious when they really are far from it. I think that’s where much of the anger is coming from. They’re claiming to be different then other guys but aren’t really conscious. Or they are what I call semi-conscious.

Are there other definitions of fake Hoteps? Check out the pic above.  I found it very interesting.  People who are race conscious will have varying views.  And black men who are conscious are no different.  You can’t put all conscious black men in a box.  I personally don’t condone homosexuality or lesbianism.  Anyone who follows my blog already knows this.  I find homosexuality abnormal and I believe it’s anti-life and goes against nature.  However there are some in the conscious community who disagree.  Some feel as though it’s okay as long as they don’t push the lifestyle on others.  I don’t think gay people should be killed or harmed.  But I don’t think that lifestyle is productive for African people.  And I have a right to my beliefs??    I believe the LGBTQ community wants everyone in the known universe to accept their sexual perversion.  And if you don’t it means you’re a hater or a close minded bigot.  Or their favorite…you suffer from homophobia.  That is utterly ridiculous!  I’m not afraid of homosexuals!  I think they’re more afraid of people who have a enough courage to speak their mind.  Some of us are not brainwashed by the pro-gay,anti-black media.

Then there is the belief that many black men are misogynist.   I believe there is some truth to this.  But there are black men who are conscious and unconscious that are misogynistic.  But you can’t put that ONLY on the conscious brothers.  There are mysogynistic men in all walks of life. But what is a misogynist anyway?

Misogynist: A person who dislikes,despises or strongly prejudiced against women.

Well I for one do not hate black women.  Why would I?  I was raised by a wonderful mother and I have great aunts,grandmothers and female cousins.  I have no hatred or resentment towards women. I have a right to my opinion and I can disagree with a sista.  If I disagree with a woman does that make me a misogynist?? No it does not.  There will always be disagreements in discussions.  I believe that there needs to be mutual respect on both sides.  And we’re all adults so we can agree to disagree on a matter.  But there should be no hatred or resentment because of  a difference of viewpoints.   You can call me strong willed.  Or call me opinionated but not misogynistic. I think the real problem we are dealing with is we all have a different consciousness due to living under white supremacy.  The core issue with talk about fake hoteps and fake Bohemian chicks is this. Its a battle between Knowledge of self vs wallowing in ignorance.  Many of our people love anti-blackness. We have been taught to hate to hate ourselves after 400 years plus of captivity.  And because of that we don’t like to hear about bettering ourselves,learning your history,embracing Africa,respecting women,rejecting white standards, and raising your consciousness. Many of us don’t want to do that. We rather watch stupid sitcoms that make fun of black people. Watch television shows like Power,Scandal,Blackish and Empire that promote images of blacks as thugs,drug dealers,whores,interracial daters,cut throat murderers and buffoons.  So naturally anyone who claims to be conscious or an intelligent black man or woman is seen as an enemy. Too many of our people are don’t respect black people(anti-blackness) so they don’t take your consciousness seriously.  They believe all who claim to be conscious are just phony people who want to sound deep and smarter than everyone else.   I understand we are all a work in progress.  I’ve been on this journey of learning about our people and culture for over fifteen years.  I first read books by Chancellor Williams,Carol Barnes,John Henrik Clarke,Dr Ben,Ivan Van Sertima,Marimba Ani,Frances Cress Welsing,Llaila Afrika,Amos Wilson, Runoko Rashidi,Cheikh Anta Diop,Queen Afua,Bobby Wright and Mwalimu Baruti.  I later started collecting dvd’s by Dr Sebi,Phil Valentine,Anthony Browder,Bobby Hemmitt,Leonard Jeffries,James Smalls,Jewel Pookrum and Richard King.  If you are not a familiar with these names I suggest you look them up. Many of them have videos on YouTube.  But YouTube debuted back in 2005. I was on this journey long before then.  I was studying African culture and history long before there was even a term such as fake hotep.  But it shows me that the contempt for knowledge and higher consciousness is growing.  The racist white supremacists that control Facebook,Youtube,Yahoo and Google have done a great job pushing black self hatred and black degradation.  You know it’s bad when intelligence,consciousness,honor and black self respect is looked down upon.  We have really hit an all time low as a people.

I’ll end this post in the best way possible.  This is a great video by one of the most brilliant minds I have ever come across. Amos Wilson was an author,Pan African thinker and psychologist.  There’s a reason most black people have never heard of him.  It’s because he had real solutions fro building black economy and a black nation.  He taught about black dignity and self respect.  So you can see why he’s pretty unknown in the mainstream media.  The give us these silly negroes like Cornel West,Al Sharpton,Jesse Jackson and Michael Eric Dyson.  They are just paid to mislead black people.  But Amos spoke the truth to his people.  Even if we didn’t want to hear it.  In this video he explains the power of consciousness.  And how a persons consciousness shapes the world around them.  And the consciousness of black people is seriously warped.  And if we want to move forward as a people this has to change.  I believe time is slowly running out for our people.  There will come a time when all the labels(Pro-black,feminist,conscious,man hater,educated,ignorant,woman basher) probably wont matter anymore.  The question is  will we wake up in time? Or will many of us become “conscious” when it’s too late? Peace my brothers and sistas.  And oh yeah…..Hotep!

 

Gay Struggle is not the Black Struggle

This is a lecture that Umar Johnson recently had in Kansas City. During the Q&A he is confronted by a black woman from the LGBT community. She begins to question him on his stance against homosexuality. The woman looks like a biracial woman. I’m a little concerned about this because it seems sometimes biracial people have divided loyalties. You never know what side of the fence they will be on. The debate gets pretty heated at one point. The woman challenges him on hate speech,mental illness,homophobia and racism.But in the end Umar puts her in check! He answers all her questions. I think this woman is an agent. Most likely a plant sent to disrupt his lecture. This looks like Cointelpro all over again. Just my personal opinion. I actually enjoyed the back and forth. He explains to her that the gay struggle is not the same as the black struggle. He makes it plain and simple. Check out the video and let me know what you think. Who do you agree with? Umar or the woman?

The Death of Black Manhood??

Sam
During NFL Draft Day Michael Sam was picked by the St. Louis Rams. He was on the phone and began crying when he realized he was drafted. I said to myself “when he gets picked he will kiss his gay lover”. Of course I was right. You’re probably wondering how did I know this. It’s not very hard to predict this type of thing if you’ve been watching American culture the last fifteen or so years. There has been a steady push by the media to get the masses to see homosexuality/lesbianism as “normal”. That’s why you see so many homosexuals in films,television sitcoms and commercials. Michael Sam came out to the public earlier this year. And also NBA player Jason Collins and WWE wrestler Darren Young announced last year that they were gay. What do these men have in common? They all happen to be black men. Isn’t it strange that all these “firsts” just happen to be black?? I’m sure there are some white and Hispanic athletes that are gay. Why aren’t they coming out? Where are they? Since many black people grow up in the church,we don’t typically accept this type of lifestyle. But many of us have gay people in our families. I have some in my family. Black people have always accepted gay people even in the church there have been gay members. We have been more accepting than most because we understand how painful discrimination can be. But just because we love the PERSON doesn’t mean we have to accept the ACT. And I’m not some crazy religious fanatic so don’t come at me with that nonsense. I personally don’t find it a normal act and I think it’s unnatural. And it’s something that shouldn’t be promoted in cartoons for children. I have caught subliminal messages in quite a few cartoons. They are trying to mold the minds of children. Much like they put out images of black inferiority in films and television as well. But gay and black are NOT the same thing. Our experience is not the same as theirs. Homosexuals didn’t suffer a holocaust like we did.
If you want to destroy the minds of a nation you don’t want them to grow up to be normal functioning warriors that can fight their oppression. The media has been trying to alter the image of black men for quite some time. The promotion of black men as homosexuals and dressing in drag is part of the plan. A nation of homosexuals are not a threat to the system of white supremacy. Which is why you see it so much. The goal is to reverse the roles of black men and women. Make the women more masculine and the men more feminine.

This is a war going on. And black people better wake the hell up! I know some of my followers are somewhat “pro-gay” and don’t think this is a big issue. Well I respectfully disagree. I say live and let live. I don’t think gay people should be stoned or thrown in jail for what they do in bed. I could care less. But when you want to push an agenda on the masses of my people and is anti-life and self destructive….I can NOT stand for that! And for the record,many Europeans are pushing the gay lifestyle heavy in Africa. Gay couples are even adopting African children. I’m not too fond of that either but I’ll save that for another post. And now they throw around the term homophobia to shame you if you disagree with them. I think scholar Mwalimu Baruti explained this very well.
“The political creation and use of the term ‘homophobia’ is a reactionary attempt to exercise power. It is an attempt by the homosexual community to gain control of global society through the manipulation of language to its political benefit. This is conceptual incarceration in action. Homophobia is defined as an ‘irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals. Like the use [of] the word ‘anti-Semitic’ by European Jews, words, actions and individuals arbitrarily defined by the homosexual community as anti-homosexual are effectively labeled homophobic.
“Calling a person homophobic makes him/her ignorant, nonthinking, prudish, judgmental or, worse, a backward, close minded peg retarding an otherwise progressive, liberal multisexual democracy. In truth and reality, close-minded means not being open or receptive to the European interpretation of reality. And specifically, with reference to us, just what is it that ‘closed-minded’ Afrikans are closed to? Obviously, not to what is best for us based on our ancestral interpretation of reality. The only thing that we are closed to is the absence of moral direction and spirit in the European realty. We reject the Western way of the world. And we refuse to be carted off in the seemingly directionless movement toward progress which we have identified as a natural cancer throughout the history of European culture.
“Homophobia is not the sickness. Homophilia is. The gradual public sanctioning and approval of branding noncompliant heterosexuals as primitive enables the homosexual front to indiscriminately stereotype and isolate their natural enemies. Heterosexuals intimidated by the threat of public and/or private censure readily acquiesce to their agenda.”The very existence of the word itself, like ‘anti-Semitism’ or ‘terroism,’ is a calculated move to place those thus accused on the defensive. What homosexuals seek is a shifting of the legitimate source for defining acceptable sexual realities from a polically factionalized mainstream into their hands. And, because of this, this word bears closer inspection…. To call people homophobic is to demonize them without qualification. Redemption, even if it were remotely desired by staunch heterosexuals, is not at issue. Classification as friend or foe is. The battle is waged on many fronts. The weapons range from proselytization to character assassination. But, unlike calling somone a ‘craka’ appending ‘phobic’ lends an air of scientific reasoning to this political accusation. For ‘phobia’ is defined as an irrational fear.
“It is important to see into the political advantage gained by homosexuals and their allies in using the homophobic label to intimidate their enemies. Unlike racist, sexist, ageist, paternalist and other ‘ists,’ where the accused is seen as only caught up in a tide of unethical or immoral thought and behavior, words like xenophobia, aracnophobia, zoophobia, nyctophobia, sciophobia and pantophobia carry a quite different connotation. The source of the fear is diagnosed as lying in the fearful individual and not the thing to which his/her fear is directed. The object of the fear is natural and usually harmless. Phobia is by far the more negative of the two because of what it implies about the mental state of an individual. It implies that the individual cannot distinguish reality from fiction or, at minimum, cannot see the normalcy in a naturally occurring phenomenon, person/group or thing. Only the phobic’s fear is deemed irrational and insane, not the thing it is directed at. It connotes more of an innate personal defect than a correctable error in judgment. The difference here is as profound and important as that between neurosis and psychosis or a misdemeanor and a felony.”
And I like the way the late great Del Jones breaks down the normalization of homosexuality.

“There is a movement toward the normalization of homosexuality in the nonEuropean world. European cultural imperialism is still in full force. In Afrika, it works through the neocolonial elite to enforce its homosexual will on the Continent using the same politico-economic tools that make their theft and privatization of huge tracks of land and resources there seem like no more than economic exchanges between political equals. Their cuts from Western loans, threats of covert military coups against their regimes, fear of embargoes against their countries’ tourism trade, undying attachment to investments in Western markets from generations of graft and anglophilic inducing eurocentric educations, are more than the encouragement negroes need to sell their people’s heterosexual tradition to the lowest bidder.”Just in 1999, a high court in Azania abolished all laws against homosexuality. With this ruling, males who had been found guilty of committing sodomy since 1994 could file for monetary compensation for time served and damages incurred as a result of their imprisonment. No judicial equivalent was meted out for the generations of Afrikans who slaved, and still slave, in the mines and homes of the European occupiers of their land. ‘Sodomites get all the rights.’ Sodomizers receive reparations before indigenous Azanians. Azania is but one Afrikan nation caught up in the crusade to make our world homosexual for Europeans. And turning the world homosexual makes homosexuality no different or more correct than making the world European. For they are one in the same evil.”Homosexuality is a strategically important resource. As Europe is a global nation of white people, it is a matter of national security…. In that the primary purpose of politics is the control and distribution of resources, homosexuality is a cultural resource. If the universal defense and sanction of one’s reality is based on its spread and presence among those not like you, then that spread and presence become politically important.”Their arrogant enlightenment of the rest of the world is still the motivation behind the homosexual component of their foreign aid and policy in general. Today, throughout Afrika, South America, the Caribbean and Asia, they are attaching the protection of homosexuality and its unbridled spread as a condition for receiving foreign aid. If the floodgates are not opened to the homosexualization of the population, then these countries become ineligible for the financial assistance supposedly designed to help in their recovery from Europe’s ongoing war against them.
“Sexual terrorism abounds. The work of homosexual mafia is evident everywhere. It is the politics of turning the world into their own personal whorehouse. Trinidad and Tobaga’s Trade and Industry Minister Mervyn Assam’s frustration at western homosexual intervention in domestic affairs says it all.
They want to Europeanize everything. They want to turn us into homosexuals…. They want countries who come to them for aid or grants or technical assistance, they want them to pass legislation so that homosexuality could become law. What has come to be called ‘homophobia’ by an extremely small but highly organized minority has been made into a human rights issue of international concern. Whether there is an absence or intolerance of homosexuality or not, these target nations are accused of sexual repression. Human rights are defined along European lines.National foreign aid policy relative to the forced homosexualization of nonEuropeans is no more than an extension for what could be called individual foreign aid.
Everyone has a right to their opinion. I just hope people respect mine. This is just an issue that I feel strong about. Mainly because I love my people and I feel as though this is an attack on the black collective. This lifestyle is not a part of black/African culture. And I think too many of out people are brainwashed by the media. There is no critical thinking involved. We can never accept the information of our oppressors. It’s easy to control the minds of the masses if you control what they see,hear and read. This is spiritual warfare we are in right now. I just don’t think many black people know what’s going on. I hope we wake up before it’s too late.
