55 Years Since the Black Panther Party & We Still Affirm Our Right to Defend our Communities

During a year where so many of our people have been abandoned and are looking for direction, we must ask ourselves how might the Black Panther Party grappled with the coronavirus pandemic? How would an organization that looked at the pandemics of their time— dope, illiteracy, police terror, etc., approach supporting communities who desperately need health care that is being withheld from them. . . .

From Russia Without Love – Mercenaries in Mali

The prospect of a Russian company with close ties to the Russian government playing a prominent role in Mali has generated extreme panic among western imperialist powers. In 1885 the conference in Berlin was all about sharing opportunities to exploit Africa, but the idea of Russia feeding at the imperialist trough in Mali is not welcome news. . . .

Spooks and Grunts and Pigs: the IPIC

The capitalist/imperialist system is driven by a world view that is colonialist, racist, sexist and Zionist. It is an enemy that operates through governments, institutions and agencies that do its bidding. More particularly, a worldwide network of military, intelligence and police agencies protect the capitalist system with interconnected assets that operate locally, nationally, regionally, and internationally. The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party calls this network the Industrial, Police/Military, Intelligence Complex (IPIC). . . .

A Critical Review of “Blood Brothers” on Netflix

The Netflix produced documentary “Blood Brothers – Malcolm X & Muhammad Ali” is the latest example of their efforts to exploit our unwillingness to critically study our own history in ways that would force us to learn to think outside of the paradigms that they provide for us. . . .

When You Die, What Will People Say About You?

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.  . . .

Individualism & the Attack on African Identity

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 Afghan People Chased the US Out Today, Africans Will Chase the US Out Tomorrow

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.  Afghanistan was freed from U.S. occupation. There was no negotiated settlement, there was no United Nations (UN) brokered peace agreement. There was no division of Afghanistan into two states, one controlled by the Taliban and the other by the U.S. and their international partners in crime. This absolute military victory by the Taliban and the poor yet proud Afghan people proves that the vast military might of the U.S. can be defeated. . . .

The African World is on Fire

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. . . .
