Is A Race War Inevitable?

Last night, I had a great conversation with my friend about what the future holds for us on this planet. He said, “Africans will never be free from the confines of white oppression without going to war.”

What a comment!

I asked him to elaborate. “Truth, Whites have proven that they cannot live peacefully with us, with Nature, with the Spirit or with themselves without conflict. From the moment he escaped from Rebekah’s womb, the white man has declared war on his mother, father and brother. The only way we can be free from them is to defeat them in every area of people activity. And that means full fledged war.”

I have my opinions on the topic but I want to hear yours.

Can we be free from white supremacy without going to war?

That’s What I Like About Me

Natural Woman

Natural Man

Natural Child

For the new year, I’m going to ask every member of my family to take a long, hard look at yourself and see the beauty of Melanin. See the beauty of your hair, your nose, your lips. God made you in His Divine image for a reason. Let’s never forget that. 2013 began for me on a Spiritual High. Everyone I spoke to on New Years Day commented on my “aura” when we spoke.

On blogger buddy of mine explained that in some African cultures, deep prayer can lead to that “exhilaration feeling” of being connected to the Most High. Perhaps he is correct. I begged Jah for our awakening and prosperity for this “New” Age of Reckoning.

For this post, I’m going to ask all of you to list one thing you love about yourselves. Forget about what white society brainwashes  teaches us. Look at yourself and see all that holds the world captive. Look at yourself and realize why others risk cancer and surgical fatality to obtain what you have been blessed with from birth. The Beauty of Darkness. The Holiness of Carbon. The Godliness of Us…

I’ll go first:

I love my wavy hair. It’s curled into corkscrews and grows high into the air. I loved it when it was long. It framed my face like a wild lion’s mane swaying gently in the wind. Even though I cut all of it off and sport a super short Afro, I wouldn’t change a thing.

Your turn.

2013

Happy New Year, my family!

2012 was most tumultuous, was it not? So many changes for us, so many ups and downs but we are still here. God has been watching over us as we “awaken” from this plantation life. Some of us still struggle daily with the notion that we are enchained but are growing more and more connected to our Spirit as we grow stronger.

For 2013, I will reveal my innermost secret:

I was starting to give up hope for black solidarity. My own “friends” have shown me over the past year that waking up is not a priority. Instead of promoting black unity and black understanding as we are a mentally sick race, they have proven their undying devotion to the system that hates and uses them. I’ve sadly began to move away from one of my most trusted friends as I learned how her true love is for her plantation master.

This realization hit me like a ton of bricks. And sent me into a tailspin of sadness and hopelessness. Am I the only one who can see?

Am I destined to be the only black person who knows that the “problem with no name” indeed has a name?

Jah, in His wisdom, gave me the inspiration one sunny day while planting my vegetables to spill my guts, heart and soul to anyone who would listen and now…here we all are. A small but powerful group of Africans who are dedicated to dismantling the slave system that has held us captive for centuries. This blog has given me hope that we can and shall be victorious. The fight that we are engaged in is not physical but Spiritual in nature…and we, the Original Peoples of the planet will overcome the Beast!

 We are the strongest race on the face of this Earth!

No one, and I mean no one, could endure what we’ve endured and survived for this long. That, my family, is a testament to our strength and connection with the Most High. I hope the new year will bless all of you and give you:

Freedom

Financial Independence

Love

Peace

Hope

Happiness

Spiritual Connectivity

I love you all.

The Symbolism of the Cowry Shell

The ever popular cowry (also spelled cowrie) shell has many uses and meanings. It has shown up in the form of money, jewelry, and religious accessories in almost every part of the world. Found in the islands of the Indian Ocean, the cowrie shell soon gained popularity throughout much of ancient Africa.

Spiritually, according to African legend, if you are attracted to cowrie shells you could be family to an Ocean Spirit of wealth and earth. It also represents Goddess protection which is very powerful and connected with the strength of the ocean. Throughout Africa, South and North America, the cowrie symbolized the power of destiny and prosperity. The cowry shell gave porcelain its name. The Italian word for cowry is “porcellana” meaning small pig.

The cowry shell is an African female symbol. Worn around the hips, it is believed to increase fertility. Rows of shells have been and continue to be attached to masks

That symbolize great wealth and the Royals have worn clothes adorned with them:

King and queen bride

In today’s fashion, the beauty of the cowry shell is seen on necklaces, belts and bags.

What I remember most fondly is Brooklyn, NY. On Flatbush and Utica Ave, African/ West Indian-owned stores made clothes, necklaces and decorative bottles with this beautiful shell.

Fear of Mother Earth: Why The Black Woman Must be Destroyed in the System of White Supremacy

Look at this woman.

She has glowing chocolate skin, a round soft nose, full lips and eyes to die for.

She is pretty? Does she threaten you? Does being in her presence make you, for reasons you cannot explain, uncomfortable? When you gaze at her, do you think she is the epitome of womanliness?

Chances are, if you live in AmeriKlan, the answer is no. This woman is the complete antithesis of everything AmeriKlan stands for. Therefore, she must be mocked, hunted and destroyed.

(As you can see, the hatred of black womanhood was instilled in us from childhood)

The black woman is propagandized to be on the very bottom of the human ladder. Not only is her shade offensive but her genitalia as well. With a naturally curvaceous figure, thick lips and prominent features, she is deemed unworthy of compliments, unworthy of adulation, unworthy of male protection and unworthy of love. Sarah Baartman was a side-show attraction:

But her “uniqueness” was a source of white envy:

Hmmm…..I thought we black females were “gross”?

The white man, throughout history, went to the black woman for everything of sustenance and perceived value:

That notion is still not lost on the white mind. With a rapidly decreasing birthrate and a higher incidence of abortion, whites are quickly becoming extinct. Destroying the Earth Mother by getting our own men and women to berate her is a surefire tactic to continue the “Pure White Gene.”

The black woman’s degradation will make her termination not only acceptable but agreeable. A big nose, full lips, kinky/curly hair, which is the opposite of white standards, was made horrific to uphold the white standard of beauty. The destruction of the black female is a very calculated form of psychological warfare. White supremacy thought of the one thing necessary to keep the black family structure together and sought to have it eliminated.

J Edgar Hoover wanted to “prevent the rise of a Black Messiah”:

COUNTERINTELLIGENCE PROGRAM BLACK NATIONALIST – HATE GROUPS RACIAL INTELLIGENCE 3/4/68 […] GOALS ~~~~~ For maximum effectiveness of the Counterintelligence Program, and to prevent wasted effort, long-range goals are being set.

1. Prevent the COALITION of militant black nationalist groups. In unity there is strength; a truism that is no less valid for all its triteness. An effective coalition of black nationalist groups might be the first step toward a real “Mau Mau” [Black revolutionary army] in America, the beginning of a true black revolution.

2. Prevent the RISE OF A “MESSIAH” who could unify, and electrify, the militant black nationalist movement. Malcolm X might have been such a “messiah;” he is the martyr of the movement today. Martin Luther King, Stokely Carmichael and Elijah Muhammed all aspire to this position. Elijah Muhammed is less of a threat because of his age. King could be a very real contender for this position should he abandon his supposed “obedience” to “white, liberal doctrines” (nonviolence) and embrace black nationalism. Carmichael has the necessary charisma to be a real threat in this way.

3. Prevent VIOLENCE on the part of black nationalist groups. This is of primary importance, and is, of course, a goal of our investigative activity; it should also be a goal of the Counterintelligence Program to pinpoint potential troublemakers and neutralize them before they exercise their potential for violence.

4. Prevent militant black nationalist groups and leaders from gaining RESPECTABILITY, by discrediting them to three separate segments of the community. The goal of discrediting black nationalists must be handled tactically in three ways. You must discredit those groups and individuals to, first, the responsible Negro community. Second, they must be discredited to the white community, both the responsible community and to “liberals” who have vestiges of sympathy for militant black nationalist [sic] simply because they are Negroes. Third, these groups must be discredited in the eyes of Negro radicals, the followers of the movement. This last area requires entirely different tactics from the first two. Publicity about violent tendencies and radical statements merely enhances black nationalists to the last group; it adds “respectability” in a different way.

5. A final goal should be to prevent the long-range GROWTH of militant black organizations, especially among youth. Specific tactics to prevent these groups from converting young people must be developed. […]

 

They knew that black women could be the most dangerous weapon against white supremacy.

As you can surmise, the black female is targeted for extermination and any and all means will be used to bring their diabolical plans to fruition. Please know that numerous black males and females on tel-lie-vision and radio are being paid large sums of money to sell out their own people. Disconnect from the lies being spewed at us and realize that the best kind of warfare is psychological. Whites have not changed their tactics. They have just made them more covert.

Black With Envy

Are White Women Mutilating Themselves Trying to Look Black? An Analysis
 
By Xavier James { thank you Mr. James for a great article }
I’ve spoken to a lot of black women who had been accused (not by me of course) of trying to look white. Although the majority of them denied the allegation, the majority of them also attributed these changes to the latest style or fashion trend. But in hindsight they were directly or subconsciously imitating what white society dictated to be the standard of beauty. You’ll be surprised what people will do to belong, to get ahead or simply survive. For centuries now, black women have felt pressured to meet a European standard of beauty, style and etiquette. And for the most part black women imitated their white counterparts as a way of coping or dealing with the rigors of the white ruling class placing their white woman and anything she wore, said or did above anything else. After so much of her own culture and style was withheld, shamed or beaten out of her the only thing the black woman could do is imitate her oppressors. In doing so the black woman soon found more and more doors opening up for her.
However, beneath the black woman’s European dresses, blond hair weave, designer make-up and green contact lenses was her uniquely chiseled lips, hips, breasts and buttocks They hadn’t changed. And white women never let them forget that for a second. They teased, taunted and psychologically tormented black women so much about their non- European, non-white features and darker complexions, that some black women began bleaching their skin, getting nose jobs and starving themselves half to death hoping to lose their big, round unacceptable buttocks. These are the same Europeans who in 1810 kidnapped an African woman (Sarah Bartmaan), put her in a cage naked, and traveled around the country making fun of her big butt, lips and skin. These are the same white folks who put Ota Benga in a cage inside the Bronx Zoo to make fun of his African features as well. Then with the unilateral help of white men controlling the media (movies, television, magazines and newspapers) the lilly white image of the thin white woman was practically deified around the world but especially throughout America……UNTIL NOW!
 Beautiful images of black women began to surface and before long black women began to see themselves through their own eyes. They realized that they too were beautiful; their hair, their eyes, their noses, their lips, and their hips were perfect. Once the vale had been removed the world wanted, needed to see more. People began to look at the world around them through their own eyes instead of through the skewed blue eyes of those trying to create an alternate reality. As the world began to see more and more black women, the more they wanted to see. Big lips and big hips were all the rage. The same media that was used to degrade black women(and men) suddenly found itself in a battle to control the public thirst for more.  But they couldn’t. The women who were once worshiped by every culture and race on the planet as goddesses, were back!

White women, feeling left out and rejected, complained to their male counterparts about all the attention they were giving black women, so they of course had to come up with a plausible solution. First, to prove they were not self absorbed or materialistic, white women went out and adopted as many black babies as they could get their hands on. That would prove to the world they could be better mothers to black children then black mothers themselves could be; without the post traumatic stress that came from slavery or segregation. It was cool, trendy and attention grabbing but then the novelty wore off and they were back to square one.

Secondly, They needed to look the part. The collective subconscious mind of White women realized they weren’t just competing with black women but the onslaught of Latino women as well. Latino women were coming out of the woodwork and being lauded and applauded as the next big thing. And these Latino women came with their own lips and hips to boot. They weren’t just maids and housekeepers they were mistresses and lovers. And white men were once again sneaking out to the maids quarters- as they use to do to the slave quarters, to sleep with the hired help. In order to win back the attention of not just their white men but black men as well, white women were forced to take more extreme measures.
Tan in a can flew off the shelves. Tanning salons were booked to capacity. And you couldn’t find an empty spot on the beach where a white woman wasn’t lying there, baking in the sun, trying to get darker. Collagen became the latest craze, then Botox the greatest thing since high heels. And now butt lifts are the norm and injections are an everyday outpatient occurrence around the country. White women no longer want the flat, pancake rear ends their momma use to have, no they want the new, round, black behind; and they’ll do anything to get it. White women are getting breasts on credit and Brazilian butt lifts in the back of  shady doctor’s offices as some would be nurse administers anesthesia while looking out for the cops.


I haven’t seen a white woman on television in years with her own lips or breasts. They all look like black lip wanna bees, cartoon-ish, animated versions of real lips. The same full luscious lips white folks teased and tormented black folks for having, white women are disfiguring themselves to obtain. And now white men are describing their bigger lips as “pouty.”  And the ones that are disfigured; “trout pouts” and “duck lips.” The increase in failed medical procedures extend to Botox and botched butt-lifts. That’s right; White women are dying for black butts. Butt infections are rampant; followed by discoloration and lumps that require corrective surgery. White women are paying unlicensed providers then bending over and getting injected with substances that aren’t even meant to go inside the human body. Why? Because THEY DON’T WANT A FLAT BUTT ANYMORE! In Russia only 1 out of 4 plastic surgery procedures are successful, leaving thousands of women scarred or disfigured. American statistics are not as high but thousands die from complications none the less.
Is it self esteem, fad or overindulgence that’s fueling this self image debacle? Thousands of women mutilating themselves trying to look like something other then what they are. After seeing Lisa Rinna’s lips why would any white women still take a chance on a procedure that could leave them looking like Donatella  Versace? What’s been fueling this obsession?
Could it be the white male collective pushing white women to such drastic measures? I did a history check and found out that white men have always went to the black woman for anything of substance. When he needed his clothes ironed, he got the black woman to do it.

When he needed his house cleaned, he got the black woman to do it. When he needed his food cooked it was the black woman who fed him. The black woman even pulled out her breast and fed his children while his white wife watched. Who’s bed was he sneaking off to get into as soon as his white wife was asleep? That’s right;  the black woman.  Arnold Schwarzeneggerand Strom Thurmond are perfect examples of that. White males own and run the media. They drive the train of popular thought that creates the reality most people live in.  Could they be the architects driving this subconscious train  wreck of white female mutilations? Are they trying to make white women into the black women of their dreams? If we are to subscribe to the Freudian school of thought then the answer would be an absolute “yes.”  I laughed when I read the Psychology Today article claiming black women were less attractive. I knew it was propaganda and psychological fodder to soothe angry white women.

I’ve seen documentaries detailing chemicals in the food and drinking water changing the body structure of  white women;  giving them more shapely figures. These same chemicals  make black women develop faster however white women develop differently. Where there was no shape in the vast majority of white women ten or twenty years ago, white women are now sporting thicker, more developed bodies.
A 65 year old white woman pulled up next to me at the light the other day. Her lips were so swollen and disfigured that I thought she’d been beaten up. “Botox” my girl nudged me. I knew those weren’t her regular lips because the crows feet (wrinkles) around her eyes and mouth exposed her age. She looked animated; disfigured. And why would this old woman disfigure herself trying to get a pair of black lips? That’s when I remember what my grandma said; “black don’t crack.” But more importantly she (they) white women collectively have always wanted thick, juicy lips and child bearing hips. But since they couldn’t have them, they tormented black women because they did. That’s how envy works.
 Envy (also called invidiousness) is best defined as an emotion that “occurs when a person lacks another’s (perceived) superior quality, achievement, or possession and either desires it or wishes that the other lacked it.  –Wikipedia
Only medical science and technology has allowed this generation of white women to achieve what their parent’s could only dream of; having black features. But at what cost? And is their new, more ethnic features going to change the way they view themselves or is the solution a lot more complex then mere cosmetic surgery? I’ve noticed Hollywood has been hiring a lot of white actresses with these new and improved features and giving them roles black women should be playing. White Beauty pageant contestants are poppin’ up everywhere with these new ‘pouty’ lips. Magazines are featuring more and more white women with defined curves, and less with the old ironing board behinds; making it difficult to immediately determine what their nationality really is.
Are white women becoming the new black women and should black women be concerned?
Is it a complement to black women? Or is the aim to replicate and replace black women? Are white women stealing these black features in an attempt to maintain their white superiority status?
It’s too bad Sarah Bartmaan can’t be here to see this. Oh, and that brings me back to my original question:
ARE WHITE WOMEN MUTILATING THEMSELVES TRYING TO LOOK BLACK? NO. THEY’RE MUTILATING THEMSELVES TRYING NOT TO LOOK WHITE!
Rapper Ice T went out and found a white woman and literally tried to turn her black. He changed her breasts, put implants in her butt, botox in her lips, sometimes corn rolls in her hair and demands that she maintains a deep, dark tan.

Although completely void of talent, white men (and some Negroes) constantly praise and adore Kim Kardashian for nothing more then going out and getting black features.

Can you imagine having to kiss those lips?

White women are now risking their lives to look like the black women they’ve historically 
taunted and oppressed?

…And the mutilation continues

Here’s a taste of what you’ll read:

Amos Wilson- Wholistic Self Concept

The individual of Afrikan descent who may be designated as demonstrating a
wholistic self-concept is one who exhibits the following characteristics:

– He has consciously and unconsciously rejected White racist stereotypes of
Afrikan people as fact.
– He does not reactionarily define himself but proactively defines himself in
terms of his Afrikan culture, heritage and reality, and in terms of the reality
of his personal and social experiences and expectations. Thus he defines
himself in ways which permits him to assume an authentic, coherent, cohesive
Afrikan and human identity.
– He builds his identity on both intrinsic and extrinsic factors; on his
association with Afrikan-centered persons and those who respect his Afrikanness;
on consumption and cultural symbolic displays which uplift him and his people
and maintain their mental and physical health and welfare; on pro-social
behavior and dress.
– He develops and appropriately transforms his attitudes, associations,
perceptions, ways of defining himself and the world which permit him to directly
comprehend and confront reality and to take personal responsibility for helping
to rectify his, and his people’s problems as well as problems common to
humankind.
– He is ‘centered,’ balanced between a wholesome drive for self-preservation and
continuing positive evolution and a wholesome drive for group preservation and
evolution. His love of self and group are synonymous and he maintains a healthy
sense of social interest, responsibility, and priorities. He recognizes that
his personal health and powers are finally dependent on the health and power of
his ethnic group. The priorities of his ethnic group come first. He is
dedicated to the liberation of his people from bondage of all types.
– He is motivated by his self-determined needs based on accurate, realistic,
self-examination; self-knowledge and self-acceptance; on self-actualization,
task-oriented problem-solving drives to resolve conflicts which bedevil him and
his ethnic group.
– He is realistically self-confident. He does not doubt his capacity nor that
of his people to equal or surpass the accomplishments of others. He feels that
his talents are best displayed and utilized in the service of his people and
against domination by other people.
– He realizes knowledge of truth and the continuing, joyous pursuit of knowledge
are liberating. He is deeply aware that Afrikan peoples have the longest
scholarly and intellectual tradition, that scholarship and intellection are
Afrikan traditions and inherently Afrikan. When he practices mathematics,
science, philosophy, etc., he celebrates the best of Afrikan tradition and
through such practices maintains Afrikan cultural identity and consciousness.
He recognizes that there is nothing foreign or alien about his pursuit of the
highest level of cognitive competence of which he is capable.
– He avidly seeks self-knowledge, knowledge of his and other cultural groups;
knowledge of the world and of reality in general. He seeks to be productive and
contributive. He continues to integrate into his personality and self-concept
an honest knowledge and self of ethnicity. The infrastructure of his personal
and social identities consist of a resolute and unassailable sense of ethnic
pride, ethnic and human connectedness.”

Indigenous Aetas of the Philippine Islands

“My family is mostly European and Spanish.”

That was the sentence uttered by X, a young girl working in my agency hospital. As I gazed at her brownish-yellowish red skin, full lips, thick broad nose and coarse hair, I wondered what she was trying to hide.

It has come to my attention that ALL peoples of Colour desperately try to deny and hide their Aboriginal ancestry. Perhaps the thought of grandma/ great-grandma running around half-naked with a bone through her nose, searching for bush meat to eat brings back feelings of shame in this white dominated slave plantation. How unfortunate since it was the Natives who taught the Europeans life skills, language and farming.

When I decided to search a part of  my own ancestry, I found this:

The Igbo peoples of Nigeria. Not much difference, eh?

The indigenous peoples of the Philippines consist of a large number of Aboriginals that are the Original Peoples of the island. These inhabitants, called Negritos, have managed to resist centuries of European and Chinese colonization and in the process, have retained their customs and traditions.

Currently, they make up approximately 3% of the population. They displayed a variety of social organizations, cultural expressions and artistic skills such as bowls and basket weaving, weapons and spoons making. Their main farms consist of rice, which we all know is of African ancestry. Aetas, having dark skin with distinct features, are shunned and mocked by the lighter-skinned, more Eurasian-looking inhabitants.

The Negritos formerly dominated the highlands throughout the islands for thousands of years, but have been reduced to a small population due to genocide and European and Chinese conquest and sexual exploitation. Today, the Aeta homelands are, in many areas, inhabited by NPA (National Peoples Army) guerrillas but Aetas never became involved with them.

Aetas were famous as jungle fighters and survivors fighting for the Allies in World War II. Having such a fierce reputation, the Aetas nevertheless used passive resistance with NPA guerrillas which the guerrillas in turn respected. Forced to leave their reservation, they now live in the cities as beggars where child exploitation is a main component of life.
