Welcome to the first Kushite Kingdom Awards! I usually deal with a lot of current events and topics my subscribers like to discuss. But I’m not serious all the time. I like to laugh and joke around like everyone else. So I thought I would do something a little fun. I also wanted to show a token of appreciation to all the black bloggers who have given me great information and food for thought. It’s a real battle out here in the blogosphere. And I appreciate all the words of encouragement from fellow bloggers. This is not a real competition. This is all meant in fun. As you will see from some of the categories. But let me know your picks in the categories. If enough people like this awards edition I may make it an annual event. So be sure to cast your votes and add anyone to the list I may have left out. My apologies to anyone that didn’t make the list. Don’t hold it against me. I appreciate all my subscribers. Peace.

This is a great video by my brother Onitaset Kumat. He has a brilliant mind. And light years above most people I have encountered who claim to have a black conscious mind. He gives an excellent allegory of how a lion in a zoo is much like blacks(Africans) being oppressed by Europeans. The video is about twenty minutes long but well worth the listen. Be sure to check out his YouTube page and his blog. You’ll be glad you did.
At some point, a Lion in a Zoo will stop fighting. He’ll stop roaring. He’ll stop biting. He’ll sit down as you walk into the back of his cage and turn your back. At some point, he is just not a Lion. For the most part, Africans in America are not the Africans of the Ancient World. And we have no cognizance of what it meant to be an African of the Ancient World. So struggle among those Africans who only look like Africans is a futile endeavor. That is, a Lion longing for the Savannah can not salvage anything from Zookeepers. You’ll never see a Lion in the Savannah with an exercise ball. In parallel, an African longing for Liberty can not salvage anything from Europeans. Our error then is when we try to build within the Zoo when there is nothing in Prison that can resemble Freedom.
If you want to Educate Africans, don’t start with a School. Because there are not enough Africans to be enrolled in that school. The truth is, a Lion in a Zoo is thoroughly disappointed with other Lions. Lions fight in Zoos. They kill each other in Zoos. They don’t respect Lion customs in Zoos. A son may sleep with his own mother in Zoos. The Lions answer to Zookeepers in Zoos. Lions are despicable in Zoos. That is what captivity does. And without Africans for your school you will be thoroughly disappointed in your investment. The conditions of captivity demand that you are disappointed. Your Africans will fight each other. They will kill each other. They won’t respect their customs. A son may sleep with his mother. Your Africans will answer to Europeans. You will be disappointed. And through your disappointment, you will begin to Hate your own people. This is where you find most American Africans.
Because African people are an Oppressed people,don’t start with a school, start with a team. A Zoo Lion must know what a Free Lion is, before he struggles for Freedom. Until he knows he will not be serious about Freedom. Nat Turner did not start preaching Liberation in his Plantation. No, during his time, Meritorious Manumission, the law that granted traitors freedom was in effect. Meritorious Manumission stands to this day. You build a school and you’ll get a scandal paid for through your tax dollars. Nat Turner did not vocalize Liberation. Nat Turner observed our ancestors, discerned the trustworthy and nearly ended Slavery in Virginia! His first step was team building. Another great African, Harriet Tubman herself said, ”I grew up like a neglected weed, ignorant of liberty, having no experience of it. Now that I’ve been free, I know what a dreadful condition slavery is.”
Harriet Tubman joined a team for Liberation. And you know she had difficulties taking our ancestors out of bondage. Some didn’t know they were in bondage. Today, few know we are Oppressed. We can’t begin with institutions. We must begin with Africans. Only when you are an African in an Organization which understands what African Freedom means, can you then build the institutions in your community. You can’t put the cart before the horse. The cart can’t lead the horse.
So on the point of Education, the Educator must concern herself with the reality of Liberated African people, otherwise even the best intentioned endeavor will fail.
We must start where we are. We are Zoo Lions and we need to become Lions. We can not be Lions in a Zoo, so we must escape the Zoo. The only worthwhile Education for the Zoo Lion is how to escape the Zoo. What Lions do or did is only important inasmuch as it contributes to that Lion’s escape from the Zoo. The Lion needs to learn how to fight and how his enemies fight; how to survive and how his enemies survive; how to get Power for himself and how his enemies get Power; how to wage War and how his enemies wage War; how to win battles and how to make his enemies lose battles; how to Organize his forces and how to Disorganize his enemies’; how to Separate and how to make his enemies want to Separate. The Zoo Lion ignorant of these things will never Liberate another Lion.
What do you think would happen, if a Zoo Lion, understanding the Zookeeper’s guard, feigned an injury to lead Zookeepers to escort the feigner out, then divers other Lions slaughtered the lot, brought there family out, countered the snipers and followed their mapping to freedom? What if this happened at ten international Zoos on one Monday? How many Zoos can afford to keep Lions after that?
Here the American African is in America and the American European can not only afford to keep that African in America under European Domination; he’s making a much larger profit off of the American African than he is the Zoo Lion. Your Education should make your lack of Liberty a Liability. Right now, your Education does otherwise. That is Mis-Education. “Always watch and follow Nature.” In Nature, there is no single greatest Predator. Everything has its limit. It’s upon you to learn the limits of your Predator and seek and develop the Organization that empowers its Membership outside those limits.
The African Blood Siblings is such an Organization. Were we in a Zoo, we would be the Zoo Lions who closest approximated Lionhood, who gave the Zookeepers no opportunity to counteract, who increased the cost of maintence into unaffordable, who sparked the misery of the cage and the Zookeeper’s routine, who led the eventual insurrection for Lionkind’s freedom! That’s who we would be in a Zoo, but as Africans of this world, and an international African Race at that, the African Blood Siblings is the international African Organization that has the Battle Plan to Liberate African people and construct for our Posterity Prosperous, Independent African Communities at Home and Abroad. Education for the African requires Membership in Racial Organization. As its Founder, I encourage you to Join the African Blood Siblings.
Let us finish with a recitation of Martin Delany’s Battle Cry,
“I am for war–war upon the whites. ‘I come to bring deliverance to the captive and freedom to the bond.’ Your destiny is my destiny; the end of one will be the end of all. . . . In contemplation of our condition, my heart is sorrowful to sadness. But my determination is fixed; I will never leave you. An overwhelming power of our oppressors or some stern adversity, breathren, may force you to forsake me, but even then will I not leave you. I will take me to the mountains, and there in the dreary seclusion of the wilderness, though alone, will I stand firmly in defense of our cause. Buckle on your armor then, and stand ready for the fight! Finally, brethren, I may eventually go down to a disappointed and untimely, but never to a coward’s or a traitor’s grave! God’s will be done.”
Nat Turner was definitely a real superhero. Or should I say Heru? He had the strength and power of his great African ancestors running through his bloodline. He wanted to see his people get true freedom and was willing to sacrifice his own life in the process. Superman,Batman,Thor…all fictional! Nat was a real person. He loved his people enough to give them the inspiration to know they can fight against their enemies and there’s no need to be scared.
Yes I know the film The Birth of a Nation comes out today. I know it’s an important story to be told. But don’t be fooled by actors in films. Many of these actors are fake ass negroes. There are also books out there spreading lies and disinformation about our brother. Nat was not a degenerate homosexual and never lusted after white women. These are all LIES!
So forget about fake ass heroes like Luke Cage. The racist media likes to give you sellout coons to portray our heroes. Don’t fall for this trickery. Just know that Nat was the REAL DEAL. Thank you Nat for your sacrifice. You will never be forgotten for what you did for your people. Your legacy will live on. May you Rest in Power brother. Ashe’
I know this might not be a popular viewpoint so let me state that this is simply my position. I do not condone, nor can I excuse the actions of Nate Parker when he was a younger man. As a survivor of sexual assault I understand first hand that it leaves scares that one must learn to live with. I can only hope that he has learned how devastating his behavior was, and become an advocate against sexual assault. I must say my concern is that personal issue with Parker threatens to take away from a film that we need to see. Too many of us have supported people that have done very terrible things in the name of being entertained. However, this isn’t just about entertainment but a story that needs to be told.
I personally find the timing of the Nate Parker story interesting. It came and caused some to say I won’t see the film because I refuse to support Parker. I truly believe this was the overall agenda of the media. Think about it… how many films do we have that depict the enslavement periods? We have quite a few, varying in accurately, but how many depict uprising? To many say we should move on from this period because it is in the past. We need to put slavery behind us we are told.
However, no one tells Holocaust survivors and descendants to move on. Yet the bottom line is there is plenty of accepted open dialog on the Holocaust. Germany has had to reckon with that history. Truth be told… the reason we can’t just move on is because America has never reckoned with the enslavement of black people. It has never been dealt with. Yes, we are aware it happened but the ramifications of it have never been dealt with.
Right now we have schools trying to rewrite history in an attempt to erase the evil of Americans past. Instead of facing where we have been as a nation… we are trying to wash it away. That is simply impossible. We need the arts (film, literature, art, music) to tell our story. It’s important that it be told all of the enslaved did not accept their condition lying down. It’s important for the very psyche of American born blacks to know yes we did fight back. The depiction of us in the world is not always accurate. It’s important that other people of color, as well as our African brothers and sisters, know our plight. It needs to be our story told by us.
This film is bigger than Nate Parker, and its need is great. I don’t condone his behavior as a man, yet I appreciate his courage to make such a film. As one who majored in English, and History, I will be going see this film at least twice. I will view it once for myself, and once to write a review. I support the telling of our stories. The voices of our ancestors have been silenced from us for far too long. We need to feel their strength and understand their sacrifice. I’m going see Birth of a Nation, and I hope many of us will be in the theatre to support the telling of our history… by us. Birth of a Nation releases in theaters nationwide October 7, 2016.
