The New Afrikan Independence Movement needs a psychological revolution. I don’t mean a change in the personal psychologies of those involved. I mean a change in the foundations of political action. Too long have developments been arrested by questions of “How do we convince the youth?” or “How do we acquire and retain recruits?”. The answer is provided by the science of psychology, specifically behavioral psychology and behavioral economics. The bourgeois “overlords” are kicking our ass in reaching the masses not merely because of funding and airplay, but really because of the fact that there appears to be this aversion . . .
“The political philosophy of black nationalism only means that the black man should control the politics and the politicians in his own community.” Malcolm X, The Ballot or the Bullet (1964) “Black Power is the vehicle by which we hope to reach a stage wherein we can be proud black people without the necessity of an apology for our non-Anglo-Saxon features.” Robert F. Williams, Speech in Beijing (1966) Introduction Nationalism is alive and well in the current Amerikan political scene. Both variants: 1) its reactionary, porkchop forms propagated by groups like the Proud Boys and the Hotep movement, and its . . .
In this country (the u.s.), all of our experiences are the material result of ideology. The schools, the clothes, the media, the workplace, the cars, the judicial system, are all manifestations of the ideology of white supremacist capitalism. This ideology is expanded and imposed upon the inhabitants of the planet through imperialism, and the superstructures made to strengthen it – structures like NATO, the IMF, the United Nations, and AFRICOM. Many of us (especially New Afrikans, Latin Americans, Afrikans on the continent and other oppressed peoples) did not choose this ideology – it’s been forced on us! . . .
Neo-liberalism has infiltrated the hearts and minds of seemingly all Africans in the U.S. False notions of inclusion — or better yet inclusion in a system that degrades Black people have captivated and polluted the minds of our People. Not only are we accepting bread crumbs and allowing each other to sit at the very same tables our ancestors would have destroyed, we have also been distracted by things that in no way shape or form advance us as a People. We have been distracted by things that keep us away from focusing on our actual oppression. What we need . . .
Saturday’s neo-nazi white supremacist mass shooting serves as a reminder of the war waged against the Black colony aka the oppressed New Afrikans (the New Afrikan Nation) and our need for organizations that are working to free the land from euro-amerikkkan control. Originally published on Medium. On Saturday, May 14th, 2022 in Buffalo, New York, an 18-year-old white nationalist neo-nazi walked into a store and opened fire on a crowd with his assault rifle. In addition to writing a racist manifesto, he live-streamed this attack as a means to get his message of white supremacist violence across to all those . . .
In this episode of Hood Communist Radio, I sat down with Kali Akuno, the founder of Cooperation Jackson in Jackson, Mississippi. As someone that’s inspired by, and believes in the vision of the New African Independence Movement, I wanted to talk to Kali to hear about how that history influences the work of Cooperation Jackson. We talked about why African people must lead the movement for climate justice, and why it’s a mistake for us to dismiss the rise of the far right in the US as some sort of fringe moment in history. It’s all good stuff that everyone should hear, particularly those of us who are new to the concept of “Free The Land”. . . .
Transcript Erica “The ultimate expression of law is not order — it’s prison… The law and everything that interlocks with it was constructed for poor desperate people.” –George Jackson Peace Africans! My name is Erica and I’m an editor at hood communist and I want to welcome you to hood communist radio!

In George Jackson’s case, a liberation movement emerged from a space of captivity. The legacy of George Jackson is felt through the continued resistance of prisoners today who, . . .
