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.  . . .

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. . . .

Revolutionary African Culture for an End to Gender-Based Violence

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. . . .

A mass gathering for the Cuban Revolution in Cuba in 1963

Defend the Cuban Revolution and Socialism!

The Cuban revolution has survived 62 years of consistent subversion and outright attacks from the United States and its white-supremacist colonial allies. The revolution has nothing to be ashamed of. It has been a beacon of hope and a model for millions around the world. That Cuba needs to defend itself against capitalism and against the billions of people around the world living in abject poverty is absurd. . . .

Cuba and Haiti: The Stench of U.S. Imperialism

The recent assassination of the U.S. puppet President Jovenel Moise in Haiti and the counter-revolutionary activity in Cuba has a familiar smell. A rot, a stench that fouls the air. It is the reeking of U.S. imperialism. While details of the assassination are still unfolding, it’s well documented that the U.S. has a history of documented interference in both nations. These imperialist actions in Cuba and Haiti are part of an ongoing U.S. aggression in the region. . . .

Exposing Police Lies to Destroy the Legacy of Kwame Ture

The capitalist system is not going to educate you about the true legacy of Kwame Ture because once you know it, you will become energized to carry out that legacy. The capitalist ruling classes understand clearly, even if we do not, that the day that consciousness takes hold is the day their time is numbered. . . .

The African Woman: The Invisible Soldier

A society without women can be compared to humans without air. Africa without African women is like a mango tree without roots. The indispensable role that African women play in the development of society in general and community, in particular, cannot be matched or debated. However, despite this role African women from Toronto to Harare to London to Kingston find themselves often invisible. . . .
