There is no trans-historical or transcultural discipline that is adequate for summing up “the history of religion and violence.” Some force this premise into reality by having a very flexible definition of “religion,” while others are even more sophisticated, allowing violence to be “National” when it suits their interest, while their enemies motives are due to “irrational backward religions.” This kind of non sequitur and gymnastic logic serves to demonize religion without contaminating their own activities
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.
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.
White Supremacy feeds on Black choices and self-hate. The relationship between the White liberal and the neo-con is that of the left hand and the right hand; connected to the same body and necessary for clapping for the continuation of white supremacy. Together the central system of white supremacy is adept at better managing. or manipulating, the world into spheres of white domination and sustaining hegemony over every aspect of the African world; from terminologies, to products, to politics, to Africa’s cultural and intellectual resourcesRead more
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.Read more
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.Read more
Homosexuality (LGBT or MSM ) has become a highly electric third rail in the West with a great deal of disposable wealth and power which has a long reach into policy and cultural direction – not only in the Western hemisphere but across the world. The issue of homosexuality  and lesbianism in the African community is one which is a challenge to the cultural integrity and moral fabric of African societies which are traditionally pro-life and pro-life systems.Read more
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.Read more
To conquer a people you conquer their ability to identify as a group being oppressed and articulate their unique reality. The primary relationship between Africans and Europeans, independent of time and geography is that of slave and slave master, colonial subject and colonizer, Employee and employer, oppressed and oppressor, respectively. This rule does not have any demographic exception regardless of if we are discussing Brazil, South Africa or Barbados, and regardless of if we are discussing 1811 or 2011. African and European represent the text book poster-boy definition of race history and race relations.Read more
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.Read more
