[Podcast] Crisis in Flint Michigan and Group Economics

Peace, Family! The Flint Water Crisis is nothing new. White supremacy has used the weapon of intoxication against Black communities for centuries.

Meet the Father of Christianity

It is no secret that Christianity has been used as a tool for world domination and white supremacy.

Why We Do Not Stand With France

Why We Do Not Stand With France

To hell with France. Following the terrorist attacks against France, the world lit up in red, white, and blue to show solidarity with the human suffering of the French.

7 Things Black America Should Stop Doing NOW

Should Pan-Africanists Embrace Marriage Rights?

African(-diasporan)s built the New World, and financed the Old World, and civilized Asia.  So we have the absolute right to marry according to our customs and traditions.

Education U.S.A. Today: Far From Origins Gone are the early days of education in America when facilities had real learning. These were student centered discussions, parental participants and/or observers, and the diversified academic “hands-on” forums that took less money (unlike field-trips today). Schooling in yesteryears took less than seven and a half hours a day to guide youth […]

BPA: The Gay Chemical???

BPA: The Gay Chemical???

Homosexuality has become rampant throughout the Black/African community as of late. Homosexuality was largely forbidden in antiquity and currently Africa, with good reason which I will explain later.

America’s Eurocentopia The means to life are unequally held and controlled predominately by historically conscious Europeans (and/ or descents) that want to keep it that way.

Was Tupac Conscious?

Was Tupac Conscious?

If we can overlook Tupac’s faults, why not the next brother’s? Recently, acclaimed director John Singleton (Boyz N The Hood) walked away from directing a film about Tupac’s life “because the people involved aren’t respectful of his legacy”.

Unequally Yoked: When Love and Faith Collide

Unequally Yoked: When Love and Faith Collide

I left Christianity years ago, and since then I have learned the teachings of Islam without submitting to the faith. This puts me at odds with most of the women I meet because I can say with 99% certainty that the majority of Black women in America are either Christian or Muslim. Whether these women […]

Liberia: The Prototype

Liberia: The Prototype

Many historians agree that the Civil War was America’s “answer” to slavery as an institution. However, most people of the time understood that simple emancipation would not be enough to solve the race problem; whites did not want to integrate with free Blacks. Their solution was far more revolutionary than war; it was the creation of […]

Black History Beyond the United States: Brazil

Black History Beyond the United States: Brazil

The Trans-Atlantic slave trade was responsible for the large African presence here in America, but was equally responsible for the presence of our people throughout the Caribbean, and in Brazil, Belize, and Colombia.

Living Legends of Black History: Assata Shakur

Living Legends of Black History: Assata Shakur

Few women in our movement can personify the word “revolutionary” like Assata Shakur.

Edward Wilmot Blyden: The Father of Pan-Africanism

Edward Wilmot Blyden: The Father of Pan-Africanism

Before there was a Malcolm X, a Kwame Nkrumah, a Marcus Garvey, or a George Padmore, there was Edward Wilmot Blyden, the Father of Pan Africanism.

Charles Deslondes and the American Uprising of 1811

Charles Deslondes and the American Uprising of 1811

Charles Deslondes. A name that has been lost to history. But of all the figures in Black History, his name alone was responsible for the largest slave action in American history prior to the Civil War. The successes and sacrifices of Charles Deslondes would go on to influence the revolts and rebellions of men like Telemaque […]

Leadership Lessons From Martin Luther King JR

Leadership Lessons From Martin Luther King JR

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was arguably one of the greatest leaders ever produced by the Black community. His leadership, buttressed by the efforts of thousands of activists who struggled with him, shaped the world that we live in today. For years, members of the Black Conscious and Pan-African community have complained about the lack of leadership among our people, without […]

Django, Consciousness, and Self-Fulfilling Prophecies

Django, Consciousness, and Self-Fulfilling Prophecies

First and foremost, shouts out to Bro. Michael Imhotep at the African History Network Show.

Despite the gains made in civil rights over the past few decades, the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics reveals that Black America is currently experiencing double the unemployment rate of the nation’s overall jobless rate – a rate that hasn’t changed since Martin Luther King JR was still giving speeches.

Three Things China Can Teach Us About Nation-Building

Three Things China Can Teach Us About Nation-Building

Not too long ago, China resembled Africa in many ways. China was broken up into many small warring states. China was divided by language, culture, and political philosophies.

Dear Mr. President: 3 Demands from Black America

Regardless of who becomes President once the ballots are tallied, there are very specific demands that all of us African-Americans should assert.

In conducting an analysis of the many reasons Black men and women in this country (America) and around the world are unable to unify, the topic of religion can’t be avoided.

Why Boycotting Is A Waste of Time

In most parts of America, racism is a way of life.

Breaking the Chains: The Warpath to Sovereignty

Breaking the Chains: The Warpath to Sovereignty

“The limits of tyrants are prescribed by those whom they oppress.” – Frederick Douglass  The above quote is powerful, and deserves some meditation.

10 Reasons Why Most “Pan-Africanists” Are Liars

So its Independence Day here in the United States of America. I am surprised to see a number of so-called Pan-Africans repping the holiday with gusto.

How Prosperity Theology Is Robbing Us Blind

How Prosperity Theology Is Robbing Us Blind

Over the weekend, Pastor Creflo Dollar made NewsOne headlines after being arrested for assaulting his 15-year-old daughter.

Why The World Should Fear The Rise of A New Black Messiah

America’s continual affront to justice, economic stability, and equality may have already primed the rise of a new Black Messiah.

The Mission and Vision of Kwame Nkrumah

The Mission and Vision of Kwame Nkrumah

In my estimation, the most dissected and discussed African personality is Kwame Nkrumah, on whom volumes have been written.  The speed at which he set out to ensure the total emancipation of the African continent and the larger African world was breathtaking. If he had not been stopped in his tracks, he and the African […]

The Mental Illness of White Supremacy

The Mental Illness of White Supremacy

As a high school student back in 1999, I made the comment that “if there is ever another Amadou Diallo, then his death would have been in vain”. By that I meant that we should be focused on taking real and actionable steps towards bringing a permanent end to both the Police-on-Black violence, and the mindset […]

Black Wall Street and the Tulsa Race Riots of 1921

I have tried hard to remember being taught about Black Wall Street in school.

Are You As Good As Your Word?

Are You As Good As Your Word?

A particularly nasty “Black” stereotype is that we cant be trusted to keep commitments.

What Blacks in America can learn from the uprisings in Libya, Egypt, and Iran. First, let me say that evidence shows that these uprisings are ENGINEERED.
