There’s something I think we are missing as we assert that #BlackLivesMatter to White people and their Systems of Governance and Control.
When we say that #BlackLivesMatter, and we struggle demonstrate that we
are worthy of more than economic deprivation, brutal homicidal
policing, substandard education, subhuman portrayals in the media, and
all the other degrading conditions and practices the System subjects us
to; when we assert that we are worthy of being treated as human-beings
we are attacking the very self identity of White people. We are
targeting their collective self identity; which is founded on Blacks
being less-than, subhuman, savage, and criminal.
As we tell
Whites that we are fully human, we seem to overlook that they’ve
established a Global System of Governance, Culture, Economics, and
Self-Identity based on denying our humanity. For Africans to be fully
human it would render White people, their institutions and systems
inhumane or anti-human; it would render all that Whites have built since
they emerged from Europe and imposed themselves on the world, and every
thing they’ve done and accomplished an illegitimate or criminal act.
It would demonstrate that their wealth is stolen, that their oppression
of us is not about justice but about sustaining an illegitimate system,
it would literally render Whites as Savages, hi-tech Savages.
So, criminalizing and depriving us is crucial to their System, and even
more importantly it is crucial to the White self-identity. If you study
human behavior you will see that losing your identity is worse than
death, people will fight harder for their identities than they will for
their lives or the lives of their loved ones. A people will not
surrender their identity if you ask them, not even if it means they will
die if the don’t.
For Whites to be human they must see us, and
render us to be subhuman. They create conditions that drive us to
dysfunction, then they shame and punish us for our predicted responses
to the conditions they imposed.
In their minds, Whites didn’t
invade the world and kill billions, they explored the world and brought
civilization, they didn’t enslave our ancestors, they saved them from
starvation and backwardness in African (the starvation and backwardness
that they imposed), Cops are not killing the elderly, children, and
Black citizens, they are protecting society from thugs, scum, criminals,
and degenerations. They are not bombing people communities in the
Middle East, Asia, and Africa, they are bombing terrorist (terrorist
they armed, funded, and trained). It goes on like this throughout
Our humanity, survival, and advancement puts us
in direct conflict with White Self-Identity; thus there can be no
reform, no law, no policy that will change the fundamental practices of
this system and how it treats us. Just study all the Constitutional
Amendments, laws, and reforms that have been imposed since the Reconstruction Era;
no matter how hard we fight, and how many laws the government passes,
we always end up right back here; Blacks being abused and dehumanized,
Whites asserting that it is their right (or lawful) to abuse and
Now, you #NewNegros,
I know yall just gon accuse me of attacking your beloved White folks,
and blaming them for Black people’s self imposed problems, I know yall
think Black people are inherently fucked up or dysfunctional, but there
are many Whites who have done the research and reached the same
These White scholars has confessed that “the
European’s relationship with the planet earth and its other inhabitants
has been akin to the effects that a virus or cancer has on a living
organism.” Some of them have understood that “Western Culture has a
Death Urge,” an unquenchable drive to kill everything. Now these Whites
who tell the truth about Western Culture and its impacts are driven out
of White Institutions and are rarely allowed on White Media, so we
don’t know of them, but if you are sincere about understanding the state
of the world, and you do research, you will find these scholars and
their writings. I did.
So, as Dr. Khalid Muhammad and Chancellor Williams
both articulated; there can be no peace, integration, or even civil
relations between Africans and Whites; Williams wrote that Whites are
our “eternal, bitter enemy, our implacable foe.” These are sober
conclusions, not hateful rantings.
incarcerate, or kill other Whites who recognize the humanity of Black
people, so how do we expect to convince the White masses to accept our
humanity, or our human rights, or our right to live without being
attacked, molested, mutilated, exposed to toxic substances, raped, mass
incarcerated, mocked, degraded, and exploited?
Malcolm X who understood this asserted that we need separation, but
because the pollutions, nuclear fallout, and ecocide don’t recognize
national borders, there is no way to separate form the impacts of White
Some, like Derrick Jensen
assert that the Whites who understand the impacts and ultimate
trajectory of Western Culture asserts that they consciously and
deliberately destroy (Western) Civilization, employing all means at
their disposal, from protest to armed insurrection. The problem is, we
are being killed and oppressed as such a rate that there could possibly
be no African left by the time this solution is fully actualized.
Some like Thom Hartmann assert that Campaign Finance Reform!,
and ending Corporate Person-hood is the answer, but we’ve seen Whites
impose progressive reforms in the US and Western Europe in the past yet
maintain their oppressive and genocidal policies against Black people.
Some, like Dr Claud Anderson
assert that we should organize and secure the needed resources and
institutions to live fully dignified lives using Group Based Economics,
fight for and secure Reparations, and defend ourselves legally from
oppression and White Aggression. This appears to be viable on the
surface, but it ignores the fact that Whites have repeatedly violated
their own laws and policies when Blacks organized to take full advantage
of those laws and policies. Like Mos Def Official said, “we start keeping pace they start changing up the tempo.”
Some like Obama and AG Lynch assert they we must obey the law no matter
how it is enforced on our communities, and only protest atrocities
according to how those who commit the atrocities allow us to.
Some say to “wait on, and trust in God,” some say “vote,” some say “get
yours, do you, get money, fuck niggaz, fuck hoez, and fuck the world,”
some say “education,” some say “Black businesses,” some say “free you
mind,” as your body is targeted and full of industrial chemicals.
As you engage the struggle, you will be fed so many responses and solutions.
I will not even get into the solutions I embrace (but they are
articulated throughout my post if you care to look or unite with me), I
just want to offer this insight, because we are yet again forced to face
what we generally are able to overlook; that we are a hated, surround,
and oppressed population under an ongoing policy of repression and
genocide; with little to no capacity to defend ourselves or secure
justice in this system.
The slow genocide we are being
subjected to has had a portion of the cover pulled back, and we are
Reacting, and will continue to React until the small corner of the
larger agenda that’s been revealed is cover over again. I’m sure it
will be covered by the hoopla surround the Money vs. Pac-Man fight, or
some other Bread and circuses-type event.
I need us to understand what we are up against, and why our oppression
has survived for so many generations, it ain’t because we Black, but
because they Lack, it is because they are White.
And again, if
you are so indoctrinated in self-hatred and self-rejection that you
conclude that I’m posting this to make excuses for “no-good Niggaz,”
then look at what Whites say when they are being honest about who they
are and why they do what they do.
I’ve learned most of what I
know about Whites from talking to and reading Whites, and I don’t
discourage you from doing the same. Understanding Whites will make us
more effective in our struggles than hating Whites. And if you already
love Whites, the best thing you can do for them is to struggle to remove
them form power, because they will not survive Global White Domination
either, more and more Whites appear to be coming to this understanding.
(Note: This is not about your personal relationship with White
individuals, this is about the sum total impacts and affects of
hundreds of years of Western Culture and History. We all know Whites
who are are powerless, more ignorant than Black people about how the
world works, or that we are cool with, none of that impacts what’s being
said here, or what we as a people need to do. Don’t allow the fact
that you like, love, or are related to a White person demobilize or
paralyze you. I’m tired of getting caught up in debates about the
goodness of individual Whites as we work to understand and counter the
Global Omnicidal Systems and Institutions of White Domination.)
