Ethiopia: How to Wreck A Black Nation In The Age Of “Black Lives Matter”

Having spent much time navigating my way through the twilight zone that is American Foreign Policy, I feel compelled to share with you all how the cynical (but very real) game of sabotaging and undermining a large African country is played while loudly proclaiming that Black Lives Matter. . . .

Graffiti on a sidewalk says "abolish the police"

On Police Abolition: Decolonization Is The Only Way

If Black masses are semi-colonized, the solution is decolonization. If slavery was merely reformed, slavery must be abolished in all its iterations. The U.S. police are the representation and manifestation of modern-day slave patrols. For these reasons and others, the police must be abolished in their entirety and other carceral institutions as well. . . .

African Financial Independence is a Threat to Imperialism

The deeper issues are usually traced to colonial economic interactions and the introduction of capitalism in developing countries.

Afro-Pessimism and the (Un)Logic of Anti-Blackness

What, then, are we fighting for? I want to open the door to this critical, but absent, conversation around anti-racist organising – the space for such conversations is desperately needed. Indeed, many of the claims about race that I have challenged created a suffocating climate in the last decade in which dissent from shared assumptions and attempts to develop theoretical grounds for solidarity are routinely characterised as ‘anti-black’. . . .

Martin Luther King Jr. speaks at a rally

What Martin Luther King Jr. Didn’t Get About Israel
