I would like to submit my friend Shay, a bi black trans scholar & organizer in Chicago. From his website http://decolonizeallthethings.com: “I’m Shay Akil McLean (twitter.com/Hood_Biologist), I’m a Pan Africanist (Nkrumah Toureist/scientific socialist) & anti-colonial community organizer (on & offline). I’m a Transman of African descent on stolen Indigenous land, writer, public intellectual, human skeletal biologist & sociologist.

I’m a sociologist & biological anthropologist studying STS/HASTS, bioethics, medical ethics, philosophy of biology, genomics, health, knowledge production and medicine. As a scholar I study how systemic inequity results in the differential distribution of health, illness, quality of life, and death. I’m currently working on my PhD in Sociology, specializing in STS/HASTS, genomics, & bioinformatics.

My academic work includes studying the impact of social, political, & economic inequality on human skeletal biology. My Master’s work looked at the impact of food insecurity, high poverty, & racial residential segregation on the dental health of poor Blacks in the 4th poorest city in the U.S..  It is through this work that I aim to construct community based grassroots interventions that change the marginalized’s relationships to knowledge and power to strategically gain equitable access to the very resources that heavily impact disease risk & life determinants while also resisting the ever present processes of settlement and displacement.”

He consistently provides invaluable knowledge on both on his website & his twitter so any donations at http://cash.me/ShayAkil would go directly towards a black trans person.

Kwame Ture (June 29, 1941 – November 15, 1998), also known as Stokely Carmichael, was a Trinidadian-American black activist active in the 1960s American Civil Rights Movement.

He rose to prominence first as a leader of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC, pronounced “snick”) and later as the “Honorary Prime Minister” of the Black Panther Party. Initially an integrationist, Carmichael later became affiliated with black nationalist and Pan-Africanist movements.

He popularized the term “Black Power” and ALSO INVENTED THE TERM “INSTITUTIONAL RACISM”

“It is a call for black people in this country to unite, to recognize their heritage, to build a sense of community. It is a call for black people to define their own goals, to lead their own organizations.” ..Kwame Ture

anonymous asked:

Do you think it is possible for the descendants of enslaved Africans have a real future in America or do we need to escape?

No, there is no real future for Africans in America, but there is no escape either.

There’s not futures for Americans in America either, they are just too pathological to accept this; this System is Omincidal, meaning it is killing everything, not just Black people, but all people, all animals, even bacterial life forms, it is killing all of the world’s ecosystems and disrupting the very atmosphere of the planet.  So there’s no future for any living thing in America.

America is not just limited to the borders of the United States, it’s not even a physical place; America is a construct of Western Culture, it exists in the minds, the mentalities, the value systems, the world view of people.  The land mass we call the United States was here millions of years before America and will be here long after America is gone.

All nations exists in the mind, the State is the physical apparatus of the nation, but the nation is psychological.  That’s way all nations need flags, rallies, holidays, patriotic songs, founding fathers, and other propagandistic shit to indoctrinate people into accepting this artificial construct of the Nation.  The nation is not a natural or fully real thing.

So America will have to be dismantled in the minds of people, and the State; the Systems and Institutions of America will have to be dismantled or re-purposed in the world.

There is no escape because as I said, America is not limited within the borders of the United States.  The media, the weapons, the pollution, the military, the economic system, the genocide, and omnicide of America is global, there isn’t one ecosystem, on population of people who are not impacted by America, directly, negatively.  Not one creature that dosen’t have toxic pollutants in their organs and bloodstream, not one mother who doesn’t have Dioxin in her breast milk, not no one human being that isn’t impacted by the US military, not one on this planet.  There is no escaping America.

America is merely the inheritor of the Crown of Global White Domination, it got it from the Imperialism States of Western Europe.  So if America did fall, or achieved the virtually impossible task of abandoning it’s imperial rule over the world, and abandoning Industrial Capitalism before it totally collapsed, there’s a strong change that another nation would take the Crown of Global White Domination. 

What’s even worse is that Obama and the Chinese Communist Party have shown the world that you don’t even have to be White to Advance Global White Domination or Omnicidal Industrial Capitalism; so the nation that inherits the crown of Global White Domination will not even have to be a European or White nation!  That’s because even though this Omncidal mentality and way of organizing human social and economic relations was birth in Europe, the Europeans have spent the last 500 year infecting the world with it.  So there are many White “Supremacist” who are not White; a White Supremacist in this day and age is anyone who holds White culture, values, ideology, agendas as supreme. 

So where the hell you gonna go to escape America, the American mentality, the American agenda?  You will find more White Supremacist in Africa than Pan-Africanist.  Africans praying to White Gods, pursing the “American Dream,” trying to Americanize African cultures and nations. 

There’s no escape, escape is not an option.  What is an option is finding a better vantage point in which to mount effective opposition to the Omicide being imposed on the world by the West and their followers.

If African, Latin America, or some place outside of the US would provide you with what you need to be a better person, a better Revolutionist, a better father, mother, community member; then by all means go there.  But don’t go there with the intent to escape, go there with the intent to be more effective in your Resistance, no matter what form your resistance may take.

Hundreds of protesters placed brooms on the grave of former Burkina Faso leader Thomas Sankara on Sunday in a symbolic demand for justice for the murdered revolutionary hero.

Sankara was killed in a 1987 French-backed military coup, which brought his rival and French puppet Blaise Compaore to power. Compaore – Sankara’s former comrade-turned-rival, who seized power in the coup – has long been implicated in the assassination.

Following Compaore’s ouster in October, calls for justice have mounted, with the revolutionary hero’s widow, Mariam Sankara, telling reporters last month that she hoped the fall of the former French-backed dictator would pave the way for an investigation into his death.

On Sunday, protesters gathered at the Dagnoen cemetery, east of the capital Ouagadougou, demanding a closure into one of Africa’s most controversial political assassinations.

“The broom has a symbolic meaning for some ethic groups, asking the dead person to point out who killed them,” said the artist Smockey, one of the founders of “Balai Citoyen” (Citizen’s Broom) group, which helped organise the protests that led to Compaore’s downfall.

“It’s an appeal for the reopening of the Sankara case,” he added.

“We succeeded in winning a first step towards victory (with the fall of Compaore). Now we are at the second step — for justice. The third will be the rehabilitation (of Sankara) and the spreading of his ideas,” Smockey told some 300 people gathered around the grave of Sankara and 12 of his comrades killed in the coup.
A pan-Africanist revolutionary, Sankara transformed what was then the former French colony of Upper Volta into Burkina Faso, or, the “Land of the Upright Men”. His spirit loomed large during the recent anti-Compaore protests.

Twenty-seven years after his murder, the circumstances around his death – especially as to who exactly killed him and who ordered it – remains a mystery.

As Sankara’s stature as a legendary figure grew across the continent, with fans adopting his signature red beret and protesters across Africa waving his photograph, the mystery and intrigue behind Sankara’s assassination has only increased.

Interim president Michel Kafando, who took over from Compaore after torturous talks between the military and civilian leaders, promised to investigate whether the remains in the grave were actually those of Sankara. His family have been asking in vain since 1997 for an investigation amid claims that the corpse buried there was not his.

The Sankara case “will be entirely reopened and justice will be done”, Kafando said in early December.

Many in the crowd at the Dagnoen cemetery, including political leaders, demanded that the authorities turn their words into deeds.

Queen Mother Moore, born July 27, 1898

Queen Mother Moore was a Black nationalist and Pan Africanist leader in the U.S. for over 60 years. In the 1920s she was a member of Marcus Garvey’s United Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), then in the 1930s joined the campaign to free the Scottsboro Nine and through that joined the Communist Party, which she was a member of until the party dropped its support for Black self-determination.

She organized the first Black rent strikes in New York City and helped form the Harriet Tubman Association, which worked to organize Black women workers including domestic workers. She was president of the Universal Association of Ethiopian Women and the Committee for Reparations for Descendants of U.S. Slaves. In 1955 she helped begin a campaign demanding that the U.S. government pay reparations to Black people for slavery and ongoing oppression. She joined Malcolm X’s Organization of Afro-American Unity. She was a founder of the African American Cultural Foundation, Inc., which led the fight against usage of the slave term “Negro”. In 1957, Moore presented a petition to the United Nations and a second in 1959, arguing for self-determination, against genocide, for land and reparations.

In the 1960s she was a founding member of the Republic of New Africa which advocated Black self-determination in the Black Belt South. Taking the first of many trips to Africa in 1972 to attend Kwame Nkrumah’s funeral, she was given the honorary name "Queen Mother” by members of the Ashanti people in Ghana.

Queen Mother Moore died in 1996 at the age of 98.

Blackistan is up to Their Viciously Callous Anti-Black Woman Antics Yet Again....................

I’m starting to strongly believe day by day that something is very terribly physiologically wrong with the Blackistan, something that White Supremacy racism while it made things worse is not SOLELY responsible for. I’ve posted articles from Khadija, videos by Breukelen Bleu and others discussing how historical evidence points to the fact that Black Men and Black People have been betraying Black Women (and other Black People, especially Black Women), BEFORE the white man stepped in Africa. Where are the “Pan-Africanist” Men and Women are to explain this historical betrayal? BLACK PEOPLE (especially many Black Men) have fucking lied to Black Women and other Black People!

Like Khadija says, “THIS IS AN ANCIENT BETRAYAL.” Remember that the next time Black Women ya’ll want to wear out a good pair of shoes and put yourselves in harm’s way marching and protesting.But ya don’t hear us though.

The lastest fuckery is that as Christelyn and dem calls em The He-man Black Woman haters Club paid a white man $15,000, $15,000! that they raise in ONE DAY, ONE DAY to bash Christelyn Karazin, to basically tell her that white, non-black men don’t think black women are worth a shit either. From what I understand Christelyn being so kind and so trusting invited this white man on her platform to speak thinking he was legit (she invited white men on her vidoes and hangouts to speak before). Christelyn Karazin cried about how Black Men or any man didn’t defend her against this vicious attack (like that was going to happen) and apologized for bringing the devil on her platform (although naively). CARL (a white man from the UK) and Angel Ramirez-Jordan and a few other men defended her against these vicious black and white devils.  However, Christelyn came back with a strong response below (I can’t find the original video in which she was apologizing and broke down crying, part of it is here in the video below).

The Black “Community” on youtube is having a field day ya’ll, saying that the white man “put her in her place” and she got her “nigga wake up call.” It’s always about keeping a Black “bitch” in her place if she thinks that she deserves a good man, and a good life. 

What’s saddest of all is that a lot of penis pandering Negro Mammies are rejoicing as well, causing another rift between black women. Many Black Women are now discussing the fact that many “sistas” can’t be trusted either (A lotta of undercover mammies joined subscibed Christelyn’s channel who really don’t like her). Black People HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE the image, likeness, and femininity, and womanhood of the original black woman. 

Breukelen Bleu (BB) stated at the end of  her latest of her 2 hour  audio, video lecture (below) how Black Women have a ancient history of betraying Black Women too, BLACK WOMEN HAVE CHOSEN THEIR SONS OVER THEIR DAUGHTERS & SISTERS FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS! This is apart of the reason according to BB why the matriarchy fell in Africa. This had me seriously thinking about how Black Women need ro RE-EVALUATE the “sisterhood” and about who we let in our online circles (and offline too).

Black People are afraid that Black Women are divesting from this wretched, ratchet ass sick “community.” Like Bruekelen Bleu says, “Black People will burn this bitch, (the “community”) down before they let black women divest”.

Again ya’ll Something is TERRIBLY wrong with a “community” that treats its women and girls like subhumans then invite outsiders to do the same. 

BURN BLACKISTAN FUCKING BURN!!!!!

People who consider Muammar Gaddafi a ‘pan-Africanist’ confuse me. Like Gaddafi didn’t call for division of Nigeria along sectarian lines or the suppressing of indigenous Amazigh people in Libya… I mean i can go on.

  • On this day in 1925, Marcus Garvey was taken to Atlanta Federal Penitentiary and incarcerated for his conviction of mail fraud. Students staged a strike at Fisk University to protest the policies of the white administration. He was later on deported back to Jamaica from New Orleans after Coolidge commuted his sentence.Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Jr., ONH was a Jamaican political leader, publisher, journalist, entrepreneur, and orator who was a staunch proponent of the Black nationalism and Pan-Africanism movements, to which end he founded the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA-ACL). He founded the Black Star Line, part of the Back-to-Africa movement, which promoted the return of the African diaspora to their ancestral lands.Prior to the twentieth century, leaders such as Prince Hall, Martin Delany, Edward Wilmot Blyden, and Henry Highland Garnet advocated the involvement of the African diaspora in African affairs. Garvey was unique in advancing a Pan-African philosophy to inspire a global mass movement and economic empowerment focusing on Africa known as Garveyism. Promoted by the UNIA as a movement of African Redemption, Garveyism would eventually inspire others, ranging from the Nation of Islam to the Rastafari movement (which proclaims Garvey as a prophet).Garveyism intended persons of African ancestry in the diaspora to “redeem” the nations of Africa and for the European colonial powers to leave the continent. His essential ideas about Africa were stated in an editorial in the Negro World entitled “African Fundamentalism”, where he wrote: “Our union must know no clime, boundary, or nationality… to let us hold together under all climes and in every country”

  • On this day in 1894, Congress repeals the Enforcement Act which makes it easier for some states to disenfranchise African American voters.The Enforcement Acts were three bills passed by the United States Congress between 1870 and 1871. They were criminal codes which protected blacks’ right to vote, to hold office, to serve on juries, and receive equal protection of laws. The laws also allowed the federal government to intervene when states did not act. These acts were passed following the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which gave full citizenship to anyone born in the United States or freed slaves, and the Fifteenth Amendment, which banned racial discrimination in voting. At the time, the lives of all newly freed slaves, and their political and economic rights were being threatened. This threat led to the creation of the Enforcement Acts.

  • On this day in 1884, Cetshwayo, king of the Zulus, died. Cetshwayo kaMpande was the King of the Zulu Kingdom from 1872 to 1879 and their leader during the Anglo-Zulu War (1879).

  • On this day in 1734, Intendant Gilles Hocquart issued an ordinance to curb slave escapes, directing the militia to recover a runaway and imposing fines on those who aided him in New France (now called Quebec). Hocquart was born in 1694, in Sainte-Croix, Mortagne-au-Perche to Jean-Hyacinthe Hocquart. From September, 1729 to August, 1748, Hocquart served as Intendant of New France, this being the longest lasting intendancy contract in the colony’s history. Hocquart put his faith in the Canadian bourgeoisie as the main player in the development of a profitable economy for the colony. Although his ideas were grand, he did not recognize the flaws that were already impeding the economy at a smaller scale. After a few rentable years, New France’s fragile economy began to crumble, and by the end of his contract, Hocquart was held responsible for too many extraodinary expenses. He was called home and replaced by Francois Bigot. Nonetheless, the years between 1737 and 1741 were among the most prosperous in the history of New France.
