Qassem Soleimani isn’t a Terrorist, America is.

I always see this barrage of tweets coming from Black twitter whenever some white devil decides to do a mass murder of colonized people. Colonized people online then march to their keyboard to tweet “Why isn’t he being called a terrorist.”  As Colonized people, we are very confused about the world we see. This is because we have some kind of faith in this system and believe that at its core it means well. This type of foolishness will always lead you to foolish outcomes. The reason why the white man that shoots up a mosque isn’t called a terrorist . . .

Against New Liberia: Class Remains The Key Link

There has been much confusion regarding the character, purpose, and benefit of projects in Africa such as those launched by multimillionaire musical artist Akon in Senegal. This project is described by the New York Post as being “run entirely on renewable energy” and Akon himself is quoted as saying: “With the AKoin we are building cities, the first one being in Senegal…we’re securing the land and closing out all the legislation papers for the city. We want to make it a free zone and cryptocurrency-driven as a test market.” Essentially, this is a capitalist project. This is an old strategy, . . .

The Miseducation of the US Left: Bernie Sanders, Social Democracy, and Left Chauvinism

Originally published in Hampton Institute by Joshua Briond I first learned about socialism in 2015. To this day I remember exactly how it happened: I was tweeting about the prospects of the presidential election and a mutual asked me, “have you heard about Bernie Sanders?” At the time, I hadn’t. Shocked when she heard this, she told me that “his principles remind me a lot of yours, I think you’d like him.” Then, another mutual of mine cut in on our conversation and said the exact words: “ew, he’s a socialist.” At the time I didn’t know what the word . . .

Settler-Colonialism, Nationalism, and Patriarchy

Settler-Colonialism and Neo-Colonialism  It is impossible to understand capitalism without first understanding settler-colonialism and neo-colonialism – the dominant forms of colonialism still remaining in the world today. The earth’s most dangerous imperialist power – the United States of America – is itself a former British (but also in some regions such as the southwest and southeast, Spanish and French) settler colony turned independent settler state and it’s constellation of junior imperialist allies – which include Azania (South Africa), Canada, Australia, and the illegal state of Israel – are settler-colonies turned settler states as well. Every imperialist and junior imperialist European . . .

Thanksgiving and the African Revolutionary

Well, it’s that time of the year, comrades when we are gravitated by guilt back towards our family for the Colonizer’s Holiday Season. The first Holiday is Thanksgiving, where the resources of the working class are pocketed by farmers and airlines.  Thanksgiving has a special place in the hearts of Colonized Revolutionaries. It either speaks to a time where you witnessed a family member exposing the colonial holiday for its brutal genocidal nature or you were that family member that did the exposing. I remember I learned about the natives being the first people of this land in first grade. . . .
