The Myth of “People of Color” & “Allies” V.S. Principled Solidarity

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 . . .

All These Votes And All We Got Was More Colonialism

Since the amerikkkan “civil rights act” 56 years ago, voting has seemed to be the only answer liberals have made to “improve” their white nationalist state, but what has it really done for poor and working-class African, Indigenous, and colonized people? Elections serve the white colonizers and their sellouts, the neocolonial “people of color.” This is clear since both parties have promised to give more power and resources to the pigs who lynch colonized people with a quota! Colonial “democracy” on stolen land is a sham. Only Indigenous people have claims to Turtle Island, aka what colonizers call amerikkka! So . . .

Intersectionality only works for Sellouts! We must throw it to the Sea!

As an African Non-Binary Queer Differently-Abled Person who is the child of immigrants, I initially gravitated towards the theory of Intersectionality. But I soon realized that underneath the mask, what is being called intersectional feminism is just white feminism with artificial flavoring. . . .

My Battle With Loneliness In The Revolution

The following speech was given by Commander in Chief Gazi Kodzo in Rally #16 on the topic of the loneliness of the revolutionary, a common topic in light of recent events and protests as we set off to build a world without colonialism. I am about to do something that I was programmed to not do by a single Black mother that taught me never to expose yourself or your feelings or your heart because colonialism is going to squash it. But I’m a revolutionary now and we must be transparent with what we’re going through to the people, and . . .

Where Do We Stand?

In the last weeks, there have been more and more building conversations around the potential of the 45th president of the US, Donald Trump, staging a coup to stay in office after the November 3rd general elections. The uncertainty of citizens’ (in)ability to vote by mail during a pandemic, and an open supreme court seat coupled with Trump’s rather outright statements suggesting he may not leave, has led to a cartoonish- like panic around how we are discussing the upcoming elections. The same groups are also having the conversations around these alleged possibilities and scenarios on the left that have . . .

Marx was a colonizer, not a communist

Marx was a colonizer, not a communist

Karl Marx did not invent socialism. Marx stated himself that he got the idea of an equal society without economic oppression from studying pre-colonial Africans and pre-colonial indigenous people of Turtle Island, the ‘Americas.’ . . .

Global Africa Must Defeat Global Imperialist Policing

By Mark P Fancher Originally Posted in Black Agenda Report  Republished in solidarity with National Day of Action to #ShutDownAFRICOM Africans have flooded into the streets of Britain, Germany, Brazil, France and many other countries, not only in solidarity, but also as part of their own resistance.  It can’t be said that the thousands of fist-waving, mask-wearing, hard-marching Africans in North American streets are all dressed up with no place to go. We can say that many don’t know where they are going. After nearly two weeks of rage-filled street manifestations triggered by the cold-blooded, racist murder of George Floyd, . . .

Why We Focus on Africa

Black Alliance For Peace  Africa can’t demonstrate independence and power because the entire continent has a giant U.S. military boot on its neck. With reports each week of yet another Black victim of police violence, there is for many an ever-growing desperation. As activists search for a way forward, Africa’s plight does not find its way on to the movement agenda. But there is good reason to be concerned about what goes on in Africa. The problems there and the problems here are related. Africa has long been the focus of foreign exploitation of the continent’s land, resources, and people. . . .
