Black Nationalism at face value has its honored place in history. Despite the efforts by racist Europeans and accommodating negroes to denounce it for centuries, the concept of Black Nationalism has always been a survival tool for the African masses. As Sekou Ture eloquently points out in his classic and widely missed analysis of “Negritude,” Black Nationalism was African people’s response to colonialism and slavery. Since a major component of institutionalizing those racist systems was for the bourgeois to develop and nurture the concept of white supremacy, Black Nationalism has always been our way of deconstructing racist ideology and proclaiming . . .
In Black Hammer’s first rally of 2021, the entire membership voted on our goals for 2021. The Black Hammer Organization’s last Tuesday rally of 2020 happened to be the largest we’ve had in the organization’s history, and we are only getting bigger and badder. These are all the plans we’ll be tackling this year! Secretary General’s Office Under the supervision of our Secretary-General Anco, Black Hammer Organization has the primary goal of building a dual contending power. We’ve already made headway with Hammer City, and 2021 will see the beginnings of the Feed The People program. Black Hammer will also . . .
White/right terrorists decided to disrupt the bourgeoisie proceedings to validate the electoral college election of Joe Biden as the next empire president of the U.S. by storming and taking over the Capitol building, disrupting the congressional proceedings. The irony is everywhere and overwhelming. As I watched a European fascist sitting at and pillaging through the desk of one of the bourgeoisie lawmakers while resting their feet on that desk in the U.S. Capitol, I couldn’t help but reflect on all the irony. What those fascists are doing in D.C. is reminiscent of a scene from the 1915 movie “Birth of . . .
Youth from Uganda and across the diaspora have united forces to help build Global solidarity with the Youth in Uganda fighting to remove their dictator. Whether possible or not, global solidarity is needed as they continue to be under surveillance with the implementation of social media tax and social media blockages. Ugandan social media activists have been been tortured, kidnapped and murdered in the past – with most recently including journalists. They are reaching out and asking for social media users that are outside of Uganda and the African continent to change their display pictures to the colour red for . . .
By: Aaron Greene, member of the Black Alliance for Peace (BAP) & a coordinator for the JLS Right2Vote Movement. The U.S. death penalty has always been a symbol of white supremacy and a violation of human rights law. Having already executed 11 people this year, the Trump administration plans to execute five people (four of them Black) during a lame-duck session. This would be the first time a president has carried out executions during a lame-duck session since the Cleveland administration carried out the execution of an Indigenous man in 1890. The profound anti-lynching activist Ida B. Wells once said: . . .
Ten Black Lives Matter chapters are demanding that those who have amassed millions of dollars in the movement’s name submit to both a financial and political accounting. On Monday a group of local Black Lives Matter chapters issued a statement to the public calling for more transparency and accountability from the Black Lives Matter Global Network (BLMGN), the umbrella structure for the Black lives matter structures. In what appears to be an ongoing internal discussion, the chapters claimed that BLMGN not only did not collaborate on political visioning and collective analysis with the chapters but shockingly, with the millions reported . . .
Centering Discussion from Erica Caines’s Black Girl Marxists Webinar for Black Women and Femmes. Black feminism has been minimized to a merely progressive political ideology, not the radical movement that Black feminist theorists had argued for; thus, a specific class of Black women (the petty bourgeoisie) has risen as “Black leaders.” In the almost nine months of COVID-19, these groups of the new ‘new Black’ has redefined racial justice within the boundaries allocated by the Democratic Party, discounting the real movements happening (and continuing to happen) in the streets. These same groups of Black women have served as buffers or . . .
First off, there is no such thing as “people of color.” The subtle inference in that term is that colonized communities have color and Europeans (white people) do not which is false. Obviously, all people have color so there is no reason to provide Europeans with that type of status. Secondly, colonized communities are each their own distinct cultures and histories and therefore needn’t be lumped together as some sort of monolithic entity. Third, its critical that those of us from these colonized communities began to discuss openly and honestly the dysfunction that white supremacy has marinaded onto our day . . .
