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?
Not everyone knows that what Zionism is, is way more than a racist ideology– it is an aggressive form of White Supremacy. It does not hold Jewishness as sacred, as many think.

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
This speech was allegedly delivered by a White slave owner, William Lynch, on the bank of the James River in 1712. It is widely considered fictional. He outlines a mental slavery package to”controlling your Black slaves.” to the point where they will enslave themselves and profit the White race indefinitely.Read more
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.
