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.

The World as it is

The world as it is–not the world as we would like it to be, or the world of 3000 years ago has us not owning 99% of the things we use in our world. Not the DVDs, not the cars we drive and not even the food we eat.

TED  Exposed

TED is all fell good, rooted on the ideology of goodness. TED talks routinely present problems of huge scale and scope and then solve them with idealism. There is no antagonism or critical thinking and definitely not too much  controversy on TED. But how many Afrocentrics or Pan-Africanist or Nation of Islam or Hebrews have been on the church of TED?

Reparations Made Simple

The campaign to secure “Reparations” for the multiplicity of genocides and crimes that have been committed against the sons and daughters of Africa during the centuries of Slavery and Colonization consists of  an “outwardly directed” process in which we level demands at the liable European and North American Governments and institutions for a comprehensive package of compensatory money payments, developmental programmes, transfers of resources, and national and international institutional reforms , as well as of an “inwardly directed” process that we African or African-descended people must engage in ourselves to repair those aspects of the damage that pertain most directly to our minds and psyches.

Black Lives Do not Matter

So after saying BlackLives Matter and getting the police to stop killing us will it fix the violence within our own communities? The issues within our families? Will it cause African Clothing stores to pop up on every street corner? Will it cause Pan-African films to become more popular? Will it cause us to create our own CNN? To start reading conscious African books ? Start wearing more African Clothing. If Black lives truly matter then empower your children with values and education, teach them their African history and the value of honest hardwork. Teach them about respect for their elders and to venerate their ancestors. Teach and practise marriage and African culture. Support each other and create good businesses. Then come with the statement that Black lives matter. Because how can our lives matter to others when they do not matter to us?

Zimbabwe: Psychosis Of Denial

Zimbabwe’s problems are caused by two conflicting ideological dispositions, Pan-Africanism versus neo-colonialism. To understand this we must remember that British Prime Minister Tony Blair came out openly that he is working with the Movement of Democratic Change in Zimbabwe to effect regime change.

Politics of the Nile | Ethiopia v. Egypt
Egypt versus Ethiopia The father of all rivers, the Abbay, is known as the Nile once it leaves its homeland. It is, in reality, one water system and not a homogeneous geographical, climatic, or ecological unit. Originating from the highlands of Ethiopia, joined by the White Nile, it reaches downstream...

The Art of Debate

Do you know how to present an argument? Well if you are like 99% of the planet that means no you do not. What people consider a debate is really just a battle of opinions. For example you say 9/11 was a hoax and someone replies, “I cannot believe you belive that nonsense”. or someone says “The ancient Egypts were African people” and someone replies “No they were not black”. The responses are not counterarguments. They are counter-opinions. If I said “I believe in God” and you said “You believe in invisible make believe people” you have no discredited my belief, or my statement. You just offered yours. It is not a debate because nothing has been offered. And this is all people on YouTube and social media are doing when they engage each other. Rather pointless because a debate is an exchange of information, a critique of points and assumptions, a challenge of facts and how they are used. And very few people get even remotely close to doing this.
