Allegory of the Lion by Onitaset Kumat

Lion....jpg

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.”

Inferior vs Superior- Marimba Ani

Racists whites...

“The white self image requires an “inferior” to which it relates as “superior”. The idea of progress helps to explain to Western Europeans in what way they are “superior”.  They believe,and are able to make others believe, that since they represent the most “progressive” force at any any given moment, they are most human and therefore “best”. Others in the world represent varying degrees of inferiority.  In other words, the idea of progress provides a scale on which to weigh and by which to compare people via their cultures(their group creations).  The Western European ethos requires a self image not merely of superiority but of supremacy, and the idea of progress makes white people supreme among human beings. Without the idea and this conceptual sleight of hand,cultures would merely be different. Western culture would merely be intensely and obsessively rational. With the assumption of the idea of progress, the West becomes “better”.

Harriet Tubman on the $20 Bill?-Naazir Ra

They want to put black hero Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill. What does it mean?  Is this progress?  Does this mean black people are now accepted by the mainstream?  I sure as hell don’t think so.  Naazir Ra breaks down what this realize means.  And what it really symbolizes.  There’s a much deeper meaning behind it.

The Fail of Modern Civilization in Afrika

African people..

Civilization, according to modern definition, is the stage of human social development and organization that is considered most advanced. People, today, often equate things like the modern railroad, tel-LIE-vision or even social media, with progress and with civilization”. Academicians, politicians and social scientists, ascribe human development to advancement in many areas that tend to meet the ever changing standard of civilization, based on what you have materially and what can give you material comfort, as opposed to what gives you intrinsic comfort. What gives you the kind of purpose that satisfies your basic emotional and spiritual needs. Many, whether those practicing reLIEgion or not, have difficulty in explaining what the spirit really means, in a way that encompass, people from all societies, ideologies and view point. So the big headed scientists in the ivory towers of academia, use terms like progress, enlightenment, culture, refinement, sophistication, to fool us into beLIEving that civilization is a measure of what we build, own or posses, instead of what or who we are in relations to nature and natures laws. In the worldview of the west, they and all that they deem admirable are seen as  “a higher stage of civilization”, where anything not of western (white) imagery, creation or stamp of approval is deemed primitive and unsophisticated.

Africa Colonization

Note: interesting enough, one classic example of “civilization” is the acquirement of or increased knowledge. Yet the knowing of things, that can be found in a book(s) or through social media is literally non existent, because the deep extensive knowledge that can inform, from these mediums have been exchanged for superficial ones. Take for instance the word sophisticate: ” Is to make (someone or something) more sophisticated ( redundant here, because sophistication has not been defined). Or a person with much worldly experience and knowledge of fashion and culture. in the book Sugar Blues, Author William Duffy, details society’s addiction to the most explosive poison in the 20th century. SUGAR!. In the book he mentions also, that the term sophistication came about when peasants, objecting to the nobility’s penchant for sugaring, bread, cakes and adult beverages, would disparagingly call it sophistication….to separate the corrupted nobility from the honest peasants. in other words adding a poisonous ingredient to an already acceptable and purer batch!

Even still, modern sophistication and civilization is the process by which a society or place reaches an advanced stage of social development and organization. How then is it that current civilization, based on the western model, whether Capitalism, socialism or Communism, can still have massive break down in various societies. Modern western society is now the gold standard for civilized behavior, yet  at the same time it exemplify the worst in excess around sex, drugs and all manner of debauchery. In Afrika, as in the Afrikan diaspora, modern civilization, that is considered superior to what many archaeologist and anthropologists have recorded as, materially different ( not worse) and simple, in ancient times, compared to now has failed in adding value to people’s lives outside of materialism. Why has modern/western civilization failed to make much of an inroad into the quality of Life of the lives of the Afrikans?

It seems as if the more we interact with the European, the further we are removed from our natural state. And the further we are removed from our natural state, the less hue-man we have become. Every culture is governed by what is called a paradigm. A paradigm is a a typical example or pattern of something; a model by which we can identify a particular culture. in the beginning there was one culture. The Afrikan culture. The Afrika cultural paradigm was/is about group associations or relationships. In that very sense, what affects one, affects all associated in the group and has a profound effect on ones relationship to ones ancestors and even ones surrounding. Thus in Afrikan culture, laws like the 42 negative confessions, are guidelines that reinforces the Afrikan paradigm model.

Africa Then..

As Afrikan population and culture began to grow from its initial size, migration and emigration became a reality through curiosity or necessity. Eventuality those who emigrated or migrated away from the Afrikan physical center, soon attempted to re-integrate physically, but without the same cultural or spiritual overstanding of association, relationships or laws. When the Asiatics, the environmentally created progeny of the emigrated, who were the first to try and re-integrate back into Afrika, found that water and oil don’t mix, they sought then to interfere with the more civilized culture of the Kimityu. This caused numerous wars of conquest, reconquest and further displacements. The next wave of people who tried to reintegrate back into the Afrikan center, but like the first, on their own terms, the Eurasians ( western Asians or Europeans) in the form of the Hyksos, eventually triggered more wars of conquest and reconquest which lead to the kind of soul searching that the original people on the planet never thought they had to deal with.

Lacking the kind of aggressive and violent energy to constantly be at war with the Hyksos and Asiatics, the Afrikans decided to teach the Asians and Eurasians how to associate and relate to others in what is now seen as a fruitless attempt to reintegrate them back into the fold of hue-manity. Unfortunately culture is what you do. It becomes who you are and who you are is dictated by your environment. Like the harsh freezing conditions of the Steppes of Asia or the caves and mountains of the Caucus regions. Modern scientist have stated that negativity, just like positivity is passed down through your DNA and through your sperm and or eggs. They postulated that once reinforced, these traumas become who you are, especially if augmented by additional trauma in your immediate surroundings.

After centuries of invasions, wars, cultural misappropriations and loss of the values that once made Afrika the beacon of light and a lightening rod of jealousy, the children of Afrika was forced into a cultural paradigm not of their choosing and not to their benefit. We thus have developed a disassociated spirit, where the disconnection or separation from who we are as Afrikan has reduced us to a savage like state. A perfect imitation of those we have grown to emulate, yet without the necessary emotional context or even DNA state, to sustain it. The result is an Afrika and an Afrikan diaspora, where vices and violence is barely covered up, or appear to even be of interest to those mostly affected by it.

Africa Now..

Rest assured that the same vices and violence that afflict Afrika, came from the mountains of the Caucuses and the Steppes of Asia has similar impact on the lives of those originators of the mindless violence and vices we see today. They however, are acting in their cultural paradigm. individualism, competitiveness and violence as a communication mode.Like the mindless drone like attributes of the Asian group think, and scavenger like interaction with the land and nature of Asia. All these shows they are more comfortable in their paradigm. But we are not, and thus the relating disassociation has lead us to a cognitive imbalance, affecting body, mind and soul. The body, mind and soul are the three things that ALL Afrikans consider interchangeable. Whether they can articulate it or not. Its in the DNA, but is subsumed by the environment of foreign conditioning.

This we come to, is how modern civilization has failed Afrika. Let’s overstand that the cave savage, will be his savage self, because it is his nature. His truest nature. he was the one who divided and destroyed Afrikan culture from without, but before it was destroyed from with out, it had to have already become decayed from within. We allowed lesser beings to interact with us on a level where they stole our cultural birthright. Stole our enlightenment. And stole our values. It was not enough that we taught them how to walk upright. How not to savage each other. We also interbred with them, hoping that our seed could be the balm to their more savage nature.

The main thing that started Afrika on that slippery slop into destruction and eventually regression is the (a) same thing that made us achieve great things. Our compassion. We felt compelled, due to our association with the universe to re-incorporate people, that showed us they are disagreeable to be around. (b) The need for some lesser leaders of integrity to show off to foreigners. Dr. Claude Anderson talks about this in his lecture and book of the same name…inappropriate behaviour. (c) the Two different, yet similar types of Ma’afa’s from the Christians of Europe and the Muslims of Arabia, not only  devastated millions of people, but recreated a brand new type of entity on the planet. The kneegrow. Slavery and enslavement was a part of hue-man and savage history and ourstory. However the kind of slavery that was enacted secularly and reLIEgiously against one set of people, the Afrikan, was and still remains a unique experience on the planet. Out of this the modern kneegrow was born. The modern kneegrow is a manufactured being, created in the mind of his oppressor, with the explicit purpose to make the once civilized beings a thing not worth much.

Today, despite what intellectuals, reLIEgious and or academicians state the Afrikan world is less civilized than in pre-colonial Afrika. We may be more sophisticated, however we lack the very thing that was stated, which are demarcations of a high culture. How women, children and the environment is treated. Scientist, social scientist, psychologists…all have mentioned that the an abused will take on the abusers mentality. But not having the personality of the abuser, ends up a more macabre version of the abuser. This is the cognoscente deficiency of the Afrikan man taking on a western social behavior. And this is how and why modern civilization has failed Afrika. The only way we can ever attain equilibrium, is to throw off the inflamed shirt of western civilization and become Afrikan once again. The current path Afrika and Afrikans across the planet are traveling, puts us at a disadvantage, where those who should be our supplicants have become dispensers of our pain, our failures and our eventual destruction.

 

 

 

Have Black people really made any progress?


In this video Claud Anderson asks the question if black people have made any real progress in America. It would seem that since we have many black millionaire singers,rappers and athletes–that we have. But if you look beneath the surface you will see that not much has changed in over 100 years. It is only the illusion of progress.
