John Lewis, Kwame Ture, Bill Clinton & Illusions of Progress

U.S. Congressperson and former civil rights activist/organizer John Lewis was laid to rest today.  His service took place at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.  The ministerial home of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the 50s and 60s, Ebenezer has a long history with African people’s struggle for freedom and justice.  That’s why its surreal that we find ourselves in a place today where someone like Bill Clinton can be welcomed into the pulpit at Ebenezer to offer an opinion on the correct path African people must take to achieve our forward progress.  Clinton, of course, . . .

Black Faces With White Power Agendas

After the colonial struggles against European rule in Africa, a majority of the Africans who were able to survive the brutal system of colonialism were the ones who were subservient and benefited from its reign. Kwame Nkrumah who was once President over Ghana after independence struggles with the  British,  coined the phrase Neo-Colonialism as a way of describing a class of Africans who were put in place by the same colonial powers to maintain that power and control over the said country— a way to rule indirectly instead of directly, which caused the majority Africans who were being exploited and . . .

Black-Outs, ‘Black Lives Matter’ and Black Power

It should be very clear by now that the state moved swiftly to domesticate the resistance by attempting to keep it at a surface level appeal for “racial justice” equipped with symbolic measures, opportunist entertainers and political figures, and NO power. . . .
