The Black Reformist & the Betrayal of the Black Masses

What you and I must understand is, the negro reformist is a powerless political entity, therefore, the only card he has to play in the game of politics, is his ability to keep the Black masses trapped in the system that oppresses them (i.e. keep the Black masses voting), in exchange for progressive legislation for himself. . . .

Black American Apathy and Internationalism

For those organizing African people towards Revolutionary Pan-African Socialism, a Joe Biden presidency is not a win. It’s a detriment. Understanding neoliberalism breeds fascism would mean that it is a mistake for anyone alleged to be of a “radical politic” to celebrate Biden becoming the president-elect and, by extension, celebrating his running mate, Kamala Harris. . . .

The African (Black) Petti-Bourgeoisie has Always Been a Problem

Its critical that we as African people understand that the African petti-bourgeoisie will always choose their class interests over the interests of the masses of African people. . . .

Revolutionary Pan-Africanist Amilcar Cabral Considered the 2nd Greatest Leader of Humanity

At the beginning of this year, BBC World Histories Magazine asked historians to nominate the ‘greatest leader’ –someone who exercised power and had a positive impact on humanity – and to explore their achievements and legacy. More than 5,000 readers voted, and in second place, with 25 per cent of the vote is Amilcar Cabral, who as head of the African Party for the Independence of Guinea and Cape Verde (PAIGC), led his country to independence. What made Cabral great? Why must those who struggle for Pan-Africanism know and understand this man’s life, work and legacy? Let’s examine his contributions. . . .

The Role of the Black Bourgeoisie in Coopting Our Movements

This past week there was an extraordinary demonstration of bold militant action from professional athletes to speak out against police terror against the African masses.  The National Basketball Association (NBA) called off its playoff games.  Major League Baseball (MLB), the National Football League (NFL), Major League Soccer (MLS), individual tennis players, and even the National Hockey League (NHL) called off games, matches, and practices.  As Sekou Ture told us years ago, these things happened because the athletes, being nothing more than conduits of the desires of the masses of people, felt compelled to act because the masses of people are . . .

#BlackLivesMatter: Our Strategy is to Win the War

#BlackLivesMatter: Our Strategy is to Win the War!

To fight effectively we need political and military coordination. We are held together by common ideas and we fight as one people against one international enemy. Freedom for Africans anywhere is connected to the freedom of Africans everywhere. Yes, we want peace and we know that someday there will be peace. But peace will only come after we win the war. . . .

In 2018 the All African People’s Revolutionary Party (A-APRP) commemorated the 50th anniversary of the publication of Kwame Nkrumah’s historic book “Handbook of Revolutionary Warfare.” The Central Committee of the A-APRP (the organization’s leadership body) re-read and discussed the book’s continuing relevance during a series of meetings. What follows is an “interview” with the Party’s leadership about the book. . . .
