Black Power For The Future

Today, we as 21st Century young revolutionaries must take into account that WE ARE ALL WE HAVE. The elders of today have been bamboozled into fighting silently for the payoff of living longer, but that approach only continues the perpetration and mass slaughtering of Afrikans worldwide! We must plant seeds early in the spirits of our children to be radical, outspoken, over achievers, and strategic. NO MORE “we shall overcome some day” b.s. NO, WE WILL OVERCOME NOW! BLACK POWER! What does this exciting phrase mean? It means that we as Afrikans have developed a mind set of race first . . .

Kwame Nkrumah giving a speech

Studying Nkrumah

In the development of Student Philosophical Conciousness in both colonial & settler colonial contexts, all African students everywhere can find themselves in these 3 types of students described by Kwame Nkrumah. Which one are you? Lately, I’ve been feeling this ‘personality type’ thing lately. The Feds use these systems a lot, I’m sure. They can be helpful in isolating and articulating probabilities and outcomes. I even developed a travel personality system to help folks planning to travel so they will be able to plan for a great outcome. I use it in my book, The “un”-Official Ghana Travel Guide. I . . .

Steve Urkel, a stereotypical Negroe intellectual.

Black Intellectuals Are Not Just Useless but Dangerous

The Negroe Intellectual what an odd bird he is. You see intellectuals are supposed to be a grouping of people who are skilled at thinking and their thinking advances humanity. Think of it like this, what good is a farmer if he cannot produce to feed the people? Skill is only as important as its ability to produce and advance society. This is where the oddness of the Negroe intellectual comes in. You see education is nothing but a tool to reproduce the theories of the dominant society. We live in a White Powered society that is sustained through the . . .

Colonized Poor and Working Class Leading Is My Mood 4 Eva

Unlike Colonizer “leftist”, us Colonized Revolutionaries find our way to the front lines of the revolution through pain by the parasitic system we know as Colonialism. Colonialism, which is the primary mode of production for this society called the western world, is what we know to be White Power. Colonizer “leftists” find their voice through wanting to sound superior in college debates. We Colonized  Revolutionaries find our voice with tears in our eyes screaming, “We want to stop dying, we want to stop seeing our people murdered by the Colonial Police state”. We come to the front lines of the . . .

Jay Z Got 99 Problems and Selling Out is #1

The Black Upper Class (Petty Bourgeoisie) has no loyalty to the Black Poor and Working Class. Even though without black poor people they wouldn’t have the ability to acquire such wealth. With this understanding I am never shocked at the stunts they pull to get that bread. But this underhanded shit Jay Z’s just done has given me a bit of pause. He has just signed a multi-million dollar deal – exact amount hasn’t been disclosed – with the NFL. You always know the money is extra dirty when the amount isn’t disclosed. The deal is for him to be . . .

Jesus is Why You Ain’t Got No Nigga

Now calm down and listen to me before ya get all upset and pour holy water on my face. Child everybody should know that I do not believe in anything that’s not real and I seek the truth in everything. No, I am not an atheist, I’m a materialist. What is the difference you ask? Well, an atheist just doesn’t believe in god. But you see me? I don’t believe in NOTHING FAKE! I don’t believe in a fake god, fake politics, fake theories, fake people, fake anything! Because I believe that when you only deal with what is and . . .

Trinidad and Tobago’s independence and the importance of African centered struggles

 So much of who I am is blended into the rich colors of red, Black and white, is moved through a calypso tune and horns, steel drums and chipping on the road, is a reflection of spices and pepper sauce. As the US born daughter of two Trinis, one who loved politics and one who loves bacchanal, my identity has always been twofold, like many Black people who reside within the US.  Trinidad and Tobago’s “Together We Aspire, Together We Achieve” motto means “the hope of a people for a better life to be achieved through cooperation and working together . . .

The Importance of Organizing

Organize! Organize! Organize! The state of colonized African people in the United States is a dire one. Despite class contradictions within the Black community, the overwhelming majority of colonized Africans on the US are marginalized poor working class or a rising class of the unemployable.  Our communities are under resourced. Our communities are plagued with wage inequality, employment discrimination, housing discrimination, being under educated and mass incarceration. This is the result of intentional negligence and broken bonds by both government and private entities run mostly by white settler Americans.  How do we combat these dire conditions? As Fredrick Douglass once . . .
