Green Shoots in the Black World?

8 12 2017

One can see the visible discomfort of the French President Emmanuel Macron at having to listen to the Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo outline the long overdue necessities for growth and development in Ghana and on the Afrikan continent in general. My concern is not for the anxiety of Macron, but for the veracity of the words President Nana Akufo spoke. You see, we have heard this “bad Black talk before. I am not discounting the truthfulness of the problems he identified in his speech and his obvious solutions to them which were elucidated by Marcus Garvey and many prior to him, but I am maintaining a healthy skepticism in my willingness to follow behind soaring rhetoric at the expense of hearing clearly stated policies and programs designed to achieve the goals which President Akufo-Addo conveyed in his speech. It was apparent that Nana Akufo spoke with passion and conviction, but so did Robert Mugabe in the video below. In 1997, Mugabe spoke of objectives which parallel Akufo-Addo’s statements, but woefully little was done in the way of actualizing these intentions.

Upon my viewing the Mugabe video, I saw the following comment posted and it sums up my opinions almost exactly:


“I heard this speech before and I agree with it. My only questions are, where were the policies? Where were the programs? Africans in American cooned over Slick Wille, swooned over Obama, hated GW Bush and now hate Trump, but have yet to develop one successful independent policy to secure our political future. We have seen more Black lawyers, pundits, celebrities and politicians carrying water for the DNC and Hollywood, but not one of these individuals or groups has developed anything of note to accept his offer. What was the Doctor of Political Science Condi Rice doing at this point? She was on her knees begging GW Bush for a position. Where were the usual suspects, Oprah, MJ, Bob Johnson, the CBC and others doing? They were running after white people. Unless African-American institutions and individuals stop preaching the mantra “we’re in a global world now” and start acting like it by developing independent political and economic policies which are interfaced with African continental policies and programs…we can forget it!

Furthermore, I have been a member of more than a few African-American organizations and they have woefully narrow goals. Home-schooling, cultural events, and small scale retail sales. We have not done what is necessary to build the corporate structures and governance practices to bring skilled professionals WHO ARE PAID into the fold to plan the strategies we need to take Mugabe up on his offer. We still think that “if you Black, you can join our organization” WRONG! We need people with skills and vision to occupy leadership roles for compensation who can get the job done. Too many organizations just let people in because they have dreads and ‘talk Black’. That won’t get us anywhere”


After stirring speeches are given in front of people like the representatives of white hegemony, Afrikan compatriots, and the world generally (since most everything now is transmitted through international media apparatuses), we then need definitive policy implementation starting with policy prescriptions that have been proposed by several Afrikan thinkers such as Dr. Chinweizu, Dr. Amos Wilson, Amilcar Cabral, Patrice Lumumba, Marcus Garvey and others. This blog serves as one such outlet to communicate Afrikan-centered policies designed to benefit actual Afrikan people on the continent and in the diaspora. I see my role as not dissimilar from IMA (inbred mutant albino) race-patriots like Zbignew Brzezinski or Heinz Kissinger who wrote books, articles, policy papers, and advised bureaucratic administrators and political leaders as to the most effective actions to take to extend the political power of white hegemony. Many of their recommendations have ended in failure and a loss of power for the European Imperial Project, and some were successful in the short term, but at the end of the day, they were valued by the leadership class for their contributions nonetheless. These inbred mutant albinos did not mince words about their goals in their official writings, and we need Afrikan policy officials to show the same allegiance and determination. The time is long past for simply using mere rhetoric to stir the masses, it is now time for unapologetic action and implementation in order to insure our survival and protection from continual enslavement by our historic and current enemies.

 

I consider the book I wrote “ACBN: Afrikan-Centered Biological Nationalism, A Primer” to be similar in relevance to books like “Strategic Vision: America and the Crisis of Global Power”, “Between Two Ages”, and “The Grand Chessboard”, all written by Brzezinski which outlined the existential problems of power and solutions for the Anglo-American alliance. I consider articles written on this blog and others you can find in my Blogroll section to be commensurate with papers written by Kissinger such as “Peace, Legitimacy, and Equilibrium” (his dissertation) and his numerous op-ed pieces in the New York Times. I am not trying to inflate my ego, but a cursory glance at the literature coming from many so-called Afrikan “thinkers” leaves much to be desired. Even if there are writers creating similar studied works, the results from their adoption by the nation-states of Afrika have yet to be seen.

In addition to creating written works, Kissinger and Brzezinski served on various think tanks and advisory boards as directors and administrators. Are their similar such boards in Afrikan nations? I have traveled to several Afrikan countries and one doesn’t have to look too long or hard until one sees a United Nations outpost or a European Union satellite office. Moreover, there are copious NGOs, and foreign institutes interceding in the process of Afrika forming its own policies and solutions to its own problems. The presence of these organizations distorts the consciousness of Afrikans and they either decide to risk everything to go to Europe or North America to find the “good white person” and job of their dreams, or they develop a mentality that assumes that if they simply beg long and hard enough, someone will take pity on them and just handover the resources that they need and desire to live an enjoyable life. Neither of these solutions are prudent for long term survival and benefit.

So, to conclude, I do wish to work with administrations like Nana Akufo’s if they are sincere, but if this is just a rouse to get Eurasian nations to fork over more resources in an attempt to keep Afrikans on the global plantation, then they can forget it. But, if Afrikan leaders are serious, let us see them implement some of the policies Afrikan-centered scholars have been advocating for the last century. Furthermore, I want to see Afrikan-centered thought instituted in the educational systems so that Afrikans can train and educate Afrikan children up to the high standards that we set for ourselves, and stop seeking “equality” or sameness with our enemies. We need an appropriate education to solve our own problems and not an education in order to make enough money to buy the trinkets that are created and manufactured by foreigners.

Afrika for the Afrikans!

It’s been since time to be about that!

Lightskinism- A New ACBN Term

4 02 2016

The European not only colonized the world, but he colonized knowledge and knowledge of the world. He even colonized the image of god!” JHC

The above quote is one of my favorites from Professor John Henrik Clarke because in it, he is basically saying that if Afrikans are to regain any sort of power, we have to start to define knowledge and the concepts that the knowledge describe and refer to in our own self-interested terms, especially if we continue using yurugu’s language. The more correct term I like to offer for consideration is lightskinism.

Lightskinism is the occurrence of mixed-race people demanding that Afrikans acquiesce to them as being actual bio-genetic Afrikans because IMAs (europeans) have said so or because they are a “conscious” mixed-race person. Furthermore, it’s a disposition that demands Afrikans treat them with deference and/or adoration or it is the deference and/or adoration of mixed-race people by Afrikans over and above actually bio-genetically Afrikan people. We often see this in the area of “Black leaders” in some Afrikan continental nations (Botswana) and the expatriate colonial states like the USA, who are frequently mixed-race individuals and not Afrikan. This is also particularly operable in beauty standards and sexual relations as Afrikans seek to emulate mixed-race people by skin lightening and buying fake hair. However, and most importantly, it is the sexual fetish and fascination Afrikan males (and increasingly some Afrikan females) have specifically for mixed-race women/men in an effort to produce more hybrids through procreation so that there will be more in existence to soothe their shattered egos due to the reality that they are Afrikan without industrial, military, economic, and political power like other major world groups. Hence the only recourse is to attain a fleeting genetic power and the reverence for having had sex with or producing a mixed-race person. This is presently referred to as “colorism”, but the term colorism doesn’t go far enough to explain the phenomenon. This is mainly because some mixed-race people claim that Afrikans are colorist towards “light skinned Blacks” (mixed-race non-Afrikans). This is similar to the charge of reverse racism issued by IMAs. The charge is baseless in both cases because both groups are actively seeking to keep Afrikans powerless on a widespread scale. However, most Afrikans care little to nothing about attaining power over these other groups. Hence it should be correctly termed, “lightskinism”, not colorism.

I welcome your thoughts on this matter.
