Science is important. The masses of African people, as oppressed people, must base our struggle for liberation on scientific knowledge and action. Just because Europeans claim science as their invention does not mean that science belongs to them or that African people ought to reject scientific truth. Our people have been scientists for thousands of years. We knew the laws of science long before Europeans discovered them. The same must be said about scientific socialism. Amílcar Cabral theorized reafricanization and returning to the source. He also understood dialectical materialism and organized his people for revolution to transform their material conditions . . .
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.

Originally published by our friends at Black Agenda Report Genocide in Congo and militarization of the African continent are Susan Rice’s specialties, but Black Democrats see her as a “role model.” “Rice cultivated relations with every pro-U.S. warlord in Africa.” No one in high levels of U.S. government has been more intimately complicit in the death of more than six million Africans in the Democratic Republic of Congo than Susan Rice, the bloodstained Democratic Party political operative who is actively seeking the job of secretary of state in the incoming Biden administration. If recent history is a guide, we can . . .
From origins of exploited free labor from enslaved Africans to the eery connection between profit over people and corporate greed, the US education system is a white supremacist technology, tool, and weapon that interconnects and maintains a tradition to colonial orders of the status quo. The violence of the U.S. education system has operated for centuries by upholding white settler colonial interests in exploiting the labor of African communities around the world, fueling student complacency through a neo-liberal agenda that promotes economic mobility through class traitor politics as a unsustainable tactic to shift the material conditions of African people.
