Black Panther Film: Who Owns it?

Some of us are proud to see a Black Panther film; a film depicting African culture in a positive light. But it is our job to ask some hard questions. Yes the revolution will be televised by African people or exploited by “the other”. Below are pictures of people involved in the film. Some of them (like every Black themed Hollywood film in recent years 12 years a slave, on and on) include owners and hired help. And the few “black faces” are only there to help mask this fact. I see not one Black Face on the owners board of Marvel or Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

The Art of Revolution: A Critical Review of African Liberation

Real revolutions happen in quiet spaces. A revolution is only a revolution if it remains functional and relevant to the prevailing conditions of those it intends to revolutionize. Just like a weather forecast is relevant if it can predicts storms, or a clock only if it keeps accurate time.

African Agency | Critical Development

The fate of Africa is that after slavery, colonialism, apartheid and neo-liberal globalization is that Africans are not agents of their lives. Definitions, agendas paradigms, and perspectives are still imposed by Europeans and others, who dominate all aspects of the African reality. Thus the image of Africa, the concepts of Africa imposed on the world are those created and controlled by non-African forces. Globalization is therefore not only an imposition of products, but also of ideas and ideals — at the expense of broader human diversity.

Eurocentric hegemony and African recolonization

There is imperative need to understand the fact that Africa attained the flag and national anthem independence only. A critical analysis of 21st century Africa clearly indicates that Eurocentric principles, values and practices are still evident, it is clear that far too many African states have been captured and have become subjects of Eurocentric hegemony in a fashion that is reminiscent of recolonization. Admittedly, there is a fresh impetus to generic Eurocentrism globalization. History and contemporary information both demonstrates that US – European fascist’s constructs are involved in sponsoring criminal warlords, wars and generic destabilization processes. These processes are in fact nothing more than opportunist criminal movements and corrupt political parties who are focused on the destabilization of Africa.

International Criminal Court

The ICC, on paper, acts to prosecute for crimes against humanity and genocide. But its focus on Africans only proves it is only a neo-colonialism outfit.

William Wilberforce And Abolition
Motives and Politics of Abolition Two hundred years ago, when the United Kingdom Parliament abolished the British trade in enslaved Africans, the English “establishment” indulged in an “orgy” of self-congratulations! They positively wallowed in smug and sentimental self- satisfaction and declared to themselves and to the world at large that... Read more
Somalia : Money and Civil War

In Somalia war and famine seem to be the default. The fragile pastoral and agricultural activities have been brought almost to a standstill by the civil war. Economic activity depends mostly on international organizations and on remittances from the Diaspora abroad.

Linguistics For A New African Reality

Words have meanings, but meanings are dictated –like everything else by those with power. Words play a critical role in articulating reality and that means reality is a subset of linguistics, and agency. No word is innocent in the hands of power, yet every word is dangerous when applied to the oppressed. We must treat sociolinguistics as a serious area of

Pan-Africanism and the Politics of Liberation

The early Pan-Africaninsts were concerned with repudiating the eurocentric and racist views that justified slavery and later European imperialism. These views, which argued that Africa and Africans had played no part in history were opposed by the leading thinkers from Africa and the Diaspora such as James Africanus Horton, E.W. Blyden, Martin Delaney and Alexander Crummell, who were thus the champions of the notion of Africans as the makers of their own history
