On Black Internal Criticism & Historical Context.

Lemme talk to my Brothers and Sisters for a second….

We really need some perspective.  Before you post your next diss
against the entire Black community, talking shit about how fucked up we
are, how we are not progressing, how we are going backwards, about how
tired you are of Ni99as fucking shit up for us; you really need to step
back and get a wider view of history and our place within it.

First; this state of dysfunction is not only unnatural for Africans,
it’s a very short and relatively minor period in our history and our
evolution.  Most of the time we’ve been on this planet we’ve not only
been free but at the apex of human development.  I’m not talking about
being Kings and Queens, or even Gods and Goddess; I’m talking about
establishing the fundamental standards for what it means to be human.  
We formed not only the first civilizations but the first families, first
communities, we set the standard for human and humane interaction and
we are still the standard to this day.  We have been the best stewards
of the land, ecosystems, and seas. No continent has contributed more to
the world than Africa, and all of the modern world hates Africans
because they can’t come to terms with their failure to hold Africa and
Africans in the proper esteem.

But I’m getting a little off track, what I really wanted to discuss is our progress.

If you look at the history of enslavement, oppression, and
colonization; Africans have been enslaved for the shortest amount of
time and we have been destroying colonization quicker than most
colonized people.  Ireland was under the thumb of the British for 800
years, they couldn’t hold (their colonies in) Africa for a solid 100
years!  When you look at internal colonization, slavery, and oppression
in Europe, they took much longer to free themselves than we did, and
they still hold many of their own Race Kin under feudal bondage.  Asia
is not much better!  From the Caste systems to modern China holding
millions of their own in wage slavery to make disposable shit for the
West.  China is destroying its ecosystems and water sources to make
iPhones for spoiled suburban White kids, and we supposed to envy their
“progress?”

Africans are not unique in being oppressed we need to
stop accepting, producing, and distributing the propaganda that Black
people are some how worse than other Races, more backwards than other
Races, deserving of our oppression, or the source of our own oppression.
 

We are ending our oppression at a rapid pace compared to most
other colonized and oppressed lands and people.  We have many issues, no
doubt, but we are, as we’ve been conditions to be; way too damn
critical of our Race and too lenient towards our enemies.

Now
here’s the catch: Our liberation efforts and return to our proper
station is occurring at a respectable pace, but it’s not keeping pace
with the rate of environmental destruction created by the Systems that
Oppress us.  White Domination, aside from oppressing us and the rest of
the world is also destroying and polluting all of the world’s ecosystems
and driving many plant and animal species to premature extinction.  
They are on track the make the world essentially uninhabitable by
complex life forms within a few decades if they are not stopped.

That’s why we have to greatly intensify our Liberation Struggle, but
that will not happen if we continue to tear ourselves down; if we keep
up with the Self-Hate and the Self-Rejection, Africans and the rest of
the world are doomed.  

I’m not calling for collective ego
inflation, not even for optimism; I just want us to keep shit in proper
perspective and when we do engage in internal collective criticism keep
that shit within proper context, and as respectful as possible
