10 Thoughts on Ending Anti-Black Violence

1. Liberating Black people from racist violence requires the complete transformation of the US as a racist, colonial state—not selective outrage at individual manifestations of racism or piecemeal reforms of police departments. 2. No act of racist violence is surprising when you realize the United States itself is a 400-year act of racist violence. From its inception the United States has been built on individuals, institutions, and states that harm Black people without repercussions or justice (see: slavery, segregation, policing, prisons, lynching, forced impoverishment, and discrimination in education, healthcare, and housing). 3. The United States = Black Death and Indigenous . . .

“BLACK ALLIANCE FOR PEACE: Rise Up to Shut Down AFRICOM”

Fifty-seven years since the founding of African Liberation Day (ALD), the pressing need for African unity is more apparent than ever. The Black Alliance for Peace (BAP) recognizes the crucial role of ALD in revitalizing internationalism and anti-imperialism as the bedrock of a reconstituted Black liberation project committed to an authentic process of decolonization. Globally, the African working class is locked in mortal combat against the forces of neoliberal capitalism, which is concentrated in the geostrategic interests of the U.S. ruling classes. To preserve these interests, the U.S. is involved in an aggressive military re-conquest of Africa through its United . . .

Recentering Internationalism: An Analysis of Economic Sanctions

As maintained in the October article, Failures of the US Left, “what should be largely understood by the ‘US left’ is that fascism and capitalism rely on and support imperialism—- seeking out to exploit nations we’ve come to view as Underdeveloped for labor, benefiting only the most privileged few within the Western nation”. During this year’s African Liberation Day virtual broadcast, this point was exemplified through discussions centered on imperialist sanctions against sovereign nations like Zimbabwe, Cuba, and Venezuela, reiterating the point that “one can not be a revolutionary socialist and not also be an anti-imperialist.” How does one come . . .

Fight White Supremacy: Celebrate African Liberation Day!

May 25th, 2020, represents the 62nd commemoration of African Liberation Day (ALD).  African Liberation Day was originally founded on April 15th, 1958, as Africa Freedom Day during the All African People’s Conference held by Kwame Nkrumah and the Convention People’s Party in Ghana.   For many people of African descent today (“all people of African descent are Africans and belong to the African nation” – Kwame Nkrumah in Class Struggle in Africa, 1970), it can be difficult for them to understand our focus on Africa and African liberation.  For some Africans throughout Europe or the Western Hemisphere, their entire existence has . . .

Responding to Anti-Black Violence During Quarantine

Responding to Anti-Black Violence During Quarantine

Originally posted by Comrade Ellis on BlackHammer.Org It’s 2020, and our lives have drastically changed due to the current health epidemic, coronavirus. Yet we still face colonial anti-Black violence, and we still face oppression from the white nationalist state. The current crisis has given the police new powers to enforce social distancing. As colonized people, this means, more militarization, more policing, and therefore more state-sanctioned brutality against us. Essential workers, mostly African and Indigenous to the americas or turtle island, already have to contend with higher forms of oppression and health risks, by leaving their homes in order to work. . . .

OnlyFans is on the RISE, but Sex Work is still despised!

The Black Hammer Instagram @BlackHammerOrg recently re-shared an Instagram video of an Only Fans model and sex worker named, Jose Sanchez. Check out his work on his Instagram @ThatRicanModel and onlyfans.com/borimodel.  Sanchez recently had a viral video of him jacking off in front of a mirror, made Instagram safe because the video cropped out his dick. Once the post was made the #WhiteNoise and #WhiteTears arrived at our organization’s front door.  Some haters made the allegation that this post was harmful to minors, which we couldn’t allow ourselves to be offended by.  Since most minors on Instagram follow the likes . . .

The Enduring Relevance of Kwame Nkrumah’s Road Map to Revolution

In 2018 the All African People’s Revolutionary Party (A-APRP) commemorated the 50th anniversary of the publication of Kwame Nkrumah’s historic book “Handbook of Revolutionary Warfare.” The Central Committee of the A-APRP (the organization’s leadership body) re-read and discussed the book’s continuing relevance during a series of meetings. What follows is an “interview” with the Party’s leadership about the book. . . .

Movement Disagreements on Social Media Openly Serve the Police

On a daily basis, you can see very inexperienced people carrying out attacks against other people on social media. Accusations are openly made, arguments encouraged, and any and everyone who has a keyboard is able to chime in. . . .
