Get in the practice of periodically asking yourself the same question. If you were to drop dead right now, what would people say about you? The answer to that question will never be provided by how many internet arguments you believe you won. It won’t materialize based upon how many people you overtalked or abusively dominated. And, it won’t be influenced by whatever image of yourself you spent so much time constructing that has absolutely nothing to do with who you really are as a person. . . .
African identity is much more than glamorizing our past. For proponents of Pan-Africanism it’s really a recognition that there are 2 billion Africans worldwide, living in 120 countries and in each of those countries we occupy the bottom of society. And, at the core of this is the continued subjugation of Africa. . . .
The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party is happy to see the U.S. military being forced to leave Afghanistan. Despite the lies of the mainstream media, the U.S. did not “decide to withdraw from Afghanistan.” The twenty year war against Afghanistan has ended because the United States was thoroughly defeated.

When the people flood the streets of Lagos, Bamako, Dakar, or Pretoria to denounce Africom, SARS and Israeli trained police forces, it does not make the nightly news. Each day there are literally 10,000 meetings in churches, basements, classrooms, and open fields to discuss our fight to live free and defeat our enemies. We even stopped hearing about Black Lives Matter when the People in the street called for the dismantling of terrorist police forces. . . .
The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (A-APRP) strongly condemns the decision by the African Union (AU) to grant the state of Israel observer status. The A-APRP opposes the illegal, racist state of Israel and stands in uncompromising solidarity with the Palestinian People who are currently experiencing another genocidal zionist assault. The zionist state claims Jerusalem as their capital in contradiction to international law and they continue to expand settlements into Palestinian territories while killing Palestinian People daily. For the AU to sanction Israeli genocidal practices by admitting them as observers is a slap in the face of the Palestinian People and . . .
Previously published on Black Agenda Report. France has thrown its military weight around in Africa for years, but recently, in the wake of troop casualties, and with the prospect of more soldier deaths, French imperialist punks have signaled their plan to withdraw more than 2,000 troops from the continent. France began “Operation Barkhane” in 2013, supposedly to rid the Sahel region of al-Qaeda cells and sympathizers. However, resistance to the military campaign has left about 55 French soldiers dead. French President Emmanuel Macron said: “Many of our soldiers have fallen, I have a thought for their families. We owe them . . .

ur focus must be on ideological and political development of the masses. The enemies of our people are in our midst and only mass, revolutionary African culture and organization can combat this reactionary behavior. We must collectively reconstruct not only the ethical and political foundation for a new African society but also reinvigorate revolutionary and principled people willing to build an ethical and principled society for the future of Africa and all our African communities. . . .
