Definition of a True Warrior!

True Warrior...

Heroic Warriors or Mindless thugs?(Killmonger,Magneto,Koba)

Erik Killmonger...

What is a warrior? What is an ignorant thug?  What is a ruthless killer?  What is a revolutionary? What does it mean to have courage? I’ve been asking these questions to people I know recently?  In the film Black Panther the anti-hero is Erik Kilmonger. There have been many debates on Twitter,Facebook and YouTube about whether Killmonger was a hero or not.  Killmonger’s main objective was to liberate oppressed black people all over the world.  He wanted to level the playing field against white supremacy.  And he was seen as the villain.  Now don’t get me wrong,Killmonger was no angel. Far from it. He was ready to kill anything in his way. He grew up in poverty in a crime ridden city called Oakland. So he had a lot to be  angry about.  I find it interesting that although KIllmonger is seen as the villain,white supremacy is never named in the film.  The word “racism” is never said in the film.  It’s only implied.  And that is the REAL source of his anger and his oppression.   But anyway,nothing would stop him from completing his mission.  Even with the odds against him he stayed focused on the mission at hand.  But he was portrayed as an African-American thug.  The real public enemy number one.  This is why Black Panther is the hero in a white-created film.  They don’t want children to admire the traits of Killmonger because he’s a threat to the racist power structure.  That’s why I tell people Black Panther is full of anti-black propaganda. What exactly is propaganda? Propaganda is the effort to spread a belief or an opinion about a certain issue. Commercial advertisers,government,media,pressure groups and public officials all use propaganda. The whole point of propaganda is an attempt to get people to think a certain way about something.  I feel propaganda is most effective when people don’t realize it as propaganda.  This is why characters like Erik Killmonger are painted as the bad guy.  His motives are liberating for black people but they portray him as a mindless thug so you associate the behavior with the ideology.

Propganda...

I’ve seen this pattern of painting revolutionaries as the anti-hero.  I remember reading years ago that the Marvel characters Professor X and Magneto were based off of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X.  Marvel comics founder Stan Lee also admitted that the X Men super powered mutants were based off of the black civil rights movement going on in the sixties.  This is one of the reasons Magneto is seen as the evil villain. He wants to liberation of mutants against oppression.  But when you listen to Magneto talk about the the situation of mutants he’s always making valid points.  And he believes if mutants want true freedom they have to do it ” by any means necessary”.Malcolm Magneto..

Koba1..

Another character that was revolutionary was Koba from The Planet of The Apes.  Koba believed that apes shouldn’t trust humans.  The main leader of the apes was Caesar.  He and Caesar rarely saw eye to eye. I also noticed that Caesar was a darker skinned ape. Whereas Caesar has a more light skinned face. Koba also had a scarred face from the torture he received from evil humans.  So Koba even looked like an ugly monster.  This is also subliminal programming.  It’s to give the impression that if someone is unattractive then they must be evil.  Which we know is not true.  I’ve met plenty of good looking people that were selfish,vain,manipulative  and egotistical.  But people are trained to believe that exterior beauty translates to inner beauty.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Here’s a synopsis from Gaspar Yanga:

“In the begging of this movie, some scientist wander into the apes territory ( theme of White innocence) and have a dispute with the Apes, in which one Ape is shot. Caesar, being the leader tells the people to leave and takes the injured Ape back home. Koba, having been abused by humans (Europeans), tells Caesar they should follow the humans back to where they are at. Koba comes back and tells Caesar, that he believes they should attack the humans before they get stronger. Caesar makes a snarky comment about how the only thing that Koba, learned from humans is hate. ( theme of seeking retribution against Europeans is wrong).

Koba, goes back into the human’s camps, only to find they are stockpiled with WEAPONS. The innocent humans that Caesar loves so much has a army reserve of military grade weapons. Some of the humans go back to the Apes home, while Koba was gone, in order to seek Caesar’s approval to search for a dam which could power their city. Upon, rushing back to tell Caesar of this great potential threat of humans, Koba is furious to find out that that humans have been allowed back into the Apes territory, along with the human that shot an ape named Ash. Koba and Caesar fight before Koba can tell Caesar, that the humans are preparing to for some type of war with all the weapons. Koba comes up with this genius plan, he goes back to the human camp to steal a gun so he can use it to shoot Caesar and tell the Apes that a human shot Caesar at night and that they should attack the humans. Koba’s brilliant plan works. Koba shoots Caesar at night time while some of those humans are in camp and he runs to tell the other Apes, that humans shot Caeser. Well, during the Ape attack on the humans, Koba gives a command to kill this human to another ape, this Ape refuses, Koba pats him on the back, then drags him by the head and throws him off the ledge showing the other apes who is the king of the hill. Koba, then arrest all those who are loyal to Caser and like humans. Koba is an example of supreme intelligence, military strategy, and brilliance. He removes a weak leader with a brilliant plot. He then consolidates power through force (Mao style) and he units the Apes, around their Ape identity. Koba is the ultimate Ape Nationalist and Freedom Fighter. The only thing that Koba does not tolerate is softness for enemies, he considers that WEAKNESS.

Caesar, in talking to the “GOOD HUMAN” (WHITE), says this ” Ape start war, Human will not forgive”. Caesar, blames his own people for the war. The humans created the experimental drug, the humans abused the apes giving them a reason to never trust them and the humans were trying to recolonize the world. Caesar, blames Koba and his people for starting a war that was caused by the humans (Whites). This, of course, is how the warped mind of the European is even in his movies and how he plants this false consciousness in others (mostly Black Christians). The writers actual ignore the history of the Apes and manipulates Caesar into this self hating, self loathing ape who has a soft spot in his heart for humans. Koba was punished in the movie for: 1. Never forgiving humans 2. Loyalty to his own kind and Caesar is made a hero for 1. Forgiving the Europeans 2. Seeing the good in all people.

Koba2..

The problem is people want a kind and sweet revolution.  They don’t know what it takes to get real freedom and liberation.  A real warrior will do whatever he needs to do to get freedom.   A warrior is usually a person experienced in warfare.  Or a person that has shown great vigor,aggression and courage. In a white racist society they want to demonize revolutionaries so people don’t see them as heroes. These films want you to identify with the so-called heroes.  But if you’re an oppressed group you should be rooting for the revolutionary.  When the European colonizers came to America that killed everything that wasn’t European.  They killed millions of Native Americans.  They killed millions of Africans.  They raped women and killed babies.  They were heartless and ruthless and their quest for power and domination.  They were bloodthirsty and heartless!  That’s what they did in the America’s and in Africa. They know what it takes to achieve a revolution.  This is what brave Haitians did in the revolution in 1804.  These were real Africans warriors that knew who was the enemy.  They couldn’t show any weakness against the evil Frenchmen.  And these are the qualities that fictional characters like Killmonger,Magneto and Koba possess. This is why it’s important to recognize propaganda when it’s in front of you.  And these Hollywood films are full of them.  When I was younger I couldn’t see it.  But my eyes are wide open now.  They’re training you to root for the real villains.  So in essence,they have you going against your own self interest.  And ultimately your freedom.

 

Ancestor to be…we do not die!

Ancestors to Be...

Nat Turner, Solar Eclipse on August 21:Pay homage to the Great Ancestor

Turner3....

This coming Monday will be a solar eclipse.  They don’t happen too often in the western part of the world.  But this is a special one in particular.  It will be on August 21 which is the day of the slave revolt by the great prophet Nat Turner.  This would be the 186 year anniversary of the revolt. With all the racial tension created by the mainstream media I can feel the tension around me. And our racist President is not helping the matter.  There are a lot of racial films out right now as well.  As well as the boxing match between Mayweather and McGregor which will fan more racial flames.  Watching the news can get you angry and upset.  Especially  when watching protests and marches by white supremacists.  But this is how the media controls you through your emotions.  Many black people are being manipulated emotionally.   It’s time to calm down,relax for a moment and think clearly. I think during this eclipse we should do some type of ritual in honor of the Black God Nat Turner.  Maybe pour libation or whatever you feel like doing.  But we need to harvest our energy and use the power given to us by our African ancestors.  We must always give the utmost respect to those that fought and gave the ultimate sacrifice against this wicked,racist and corrupt system.  Ashe’

Pan African Proclamation of 2016

RBG Man...

Hotep family! It’s your brother KP.  I hope everyone is doing well.  I enjoyed my little break from posting. I thought this would be a good post for my return. Here at Kushite Kingdom I have always promoted  the idea of being Pan African. As well as covering topics like Black consciousness,economics,African culture and Black liberation. In exposing the lies that we are told about our history, I’ve tried my best to wake up my people. Many of us get so much disinformation in the media we are very confused.  That’s why I do my best to get out important information to my people. Even if I offend other races in the process. Offending people is not my concern.   If I was scared to offend others I would’ve stop blogging a long time ago.The survival of my people is my main concern.  I have always believed  that black consciousness was a spiritual path based on health,wellness amd knowledge of self. Black consciousness is appreciation for our African heritage,our people and families. And real  power is about determination and self control.  You can call this a proclamation,manifesto,mission statement or public declaration.  But I just wanted to list some ideas and things we as black people should be doing if we want to survive as well as change our mindset.  We have a lot of work ahead of us.  But together we can do this.  I’m sure some of you will like some of it…and others will disagree.  But that’s okay. I’m open to any suggestions anyone may have.

26. Do not be slut or whore.  It is very self destructive  and shows your immaturity. This applies to women….and men.
27. Assume that all non-blacks do not have your best interest in mind.
28. Brothers: Do not display a misogynistic mindset. Hating and despising black women shows ignorance and no growth as a man.  You must learn to respect your woman. Let sistas express themselves although it is okay to disagree at times. But give sistas their space.
29. Sistas: Do not be a man hating feminist.  Do not put down or degrade your man. Use words of encouragement to uplift your man.  And realize that men want to be leaders. Every gender has their role and should compliment the other gender.  A relationship is a partnership that both can benefit from.
30.  You must realize that the masculine principle  and feminine principle compliment one another. And that black men and women must work together to strengthen the family unit.
