    Queen Goddess SISTER SOULJAH

    Because of the honor you give to the Afrikan Carbon Family, because of the progress that you seek, because of your resolution to lead the Afrikan people back to their righteous mind-set not abandoning them there, because of the seen and unseen power in you, you fall into the position of "A Living SHEroe", and this is the moment..

    Words of Wisdom From Sista Souljah

    by Davey D

    In celebration of International Woman's History Month we went digging in the crates and pulled up some old yet timeless tapes of Sista Souljah. Many of yâll may know her as an author. She's given us two incredible books called ˜No Disrespect™ and the ˜Coldest Winter Ever'.

    Others may know Souljah as an uncompromising activist/ Freedom Fighter who was the brunt of unsavory remarks from former President Bill Clinton back in 1992 after the Rodney King uprisings. Homeboy was definitely out of line as we later came to discover that Clinton took her remarks out of context and then dissed her as a way to show white America that he was willing and able to stand up to Black people and Black interests. She was the convenient scapegoat. His repudiation of her became known as a Sista Souljah moment. She responded to Clinton's remarks with a hard hitting statement of her own that we included at the end of this article, just so you can have a better understanding of who she is and what she's about.

    Many of us also know Souljah as a former member of Public Enemy who put out her own solo album called ˜360 Degrees of Power™. She made her recording debut on Terminator X™s album 'Valley of the Jeep Beats' on a song called Buckwylin™ where she traded verses with Chuck D.

    In whatever capacity you know Souljah, you know that she is fearless, insightful and always on point. In the excerpts we gathered she drops some serious bombs which will hopefully serve as an inspiration for those listening. The first 35 minutes are excerpts from a speech she delivered in Oakland, California as part of the Nommo Lecture series at McClymonds High School in the early 90s. The second part was delivered in several years later in Washington DC around 2000

    Souljah focuses on issues like what it means to be an African Woman, The definition of Love and Relationships. She offers up some very powerful words that definitely make you think.

    SISTER SOULJAH STATEMENT

    Peace. I stand before you today feeling very confident, steadfast and powerful; at the same time, I am surprised, that I as a young African woman, have impacted and effected the development of not only national politics, but international politics as well. It is very shocking to me that in a time of American economic recession, and inner city urban chaos, Democratic presidential contender Bill Clinton has chosen to attack not the issues, but a young African woman who is very well educated, alcohol free, drug free and a successful self employed businesswoman, and community servant.

    Considerable time has been spent debating whether America should take seriously the words of a rap artist, or so called entertainers. Let me clarify for the press who I am - I am Sister Souljah; rapper, activist, organizer, and lecturer. I was born in the Bronx, New York, spent the earlier part of my life there, was raised by my mother, was on and off the welfare system for approximately 15 years, lived in government subsidized housing and was classified by sociologists as being in the under class-meaning living below the poverty line in a vicious cycle of poverty that America says one can not break out of. I supplemented my education in the White American school system by reading African history, which was intentionally left out of the curriculum of American students. By doing so, I was able to become the well-balanced, reassured woman that I am now. While in high school, I was a Legislative intern at the House of Representatives for the Republican party. I was a winner of the American Legion's Constitutional Oratory Contest, attended Cornell University's Advanced Placement Summer Session, and entered Rutgers University. I attended the University of Salamanca's Study Abroad program in Salamance, Spain, worked at a medical center in Zimbabwe, visited Mozambiquan refugee camps and traveled throughout the Southern African region. I have also visited and lectured in the former Soviet Union, England, France, Portugal, Finland and Holland.

    Moreover, at Rutgers I was a well known writer and political commentator for the university newspaper. I attended church in the Bronx in New York City, where my great grandmother was the pastor. She died this year at age 92. While finishing at Rutgers University, I was offered a job by Rev. Benjamin F. Chavis of the United Church of Christ Commission for Racial Justice, which is a church sponsored civil rights firm. I developed, organized and financed, through hip-hop music, a sleep away summer camp called the African Youth Survival Camp for children of homeless families and ran it successfully for 3 years, thus leaving Rutgers one semester prior to graduation. I have spoken on the same platform with Jesse Jackson, Minister Louis Farrakkan, Rev. Ben Chavis, Rev. Calvin Butts and Nelson Mandela.

    As you can see I am no newcomer to the world of politics. I am mentally, spiritually, physically, emotionally, intellectually and academically developed and acutely aware of the condition of African people throughout the entire world.

    My album "360 Degrees of Power" is an amalgamation of all of my thoughts, personal, and professional experiences here in America. My album was produced by Eric Sadler, one of the producers who created the music for Public Enemy, Ice-Cube and others. Any person who purchases my album will have a full understanding of what I think and believe, although it was designed specifically with the African community in mind. I was certain that Bill Clinton was unfamiliar with me, my development and work, musical and otherwise. He chose to comment without any investigation whatsoever based on an interview in an ultra conservative newspaper, The Washington Post, which is about as familiar with the experiences of Africans in America, inner city youth, and hip-hop, as Bill Clinton is. I however, did not fail to do my research and my research reveals the following indictment of Bill Clinton's integrity:

    1) Bill Clinton is a draft-dodger who wrote in a letter "Thank you...for saving me from the draft" and then asserts regularly that he supports military force when necessary, especially against Communism. He, therefore, feels it's alright to send your son to fight wars when he himself would not fight for the principals he SAYS he believes in.

    2) Bill Clinton talks of morality but admits that he was a reefer smoker who does not inhale. Sister Soujah has never smoked reefer or any other drug.

    3) Bill Clinton says he believes in a strong family unit but could never quite get his own personal and social behavior together. His treatment and dismissal of Jennifer Flowers is indicative of how he relieves himself from his personal responsibility and created an emotionally abusive environment to Jennifer Flowers. He seems to feel comfortable attacking and alienating women for his own shortcomings.

    4) Bill Clinton says that Sister Souljah is a racist like David Duke, a well known ex-Klan member and White supremist, but was a member in an all White segregated club up until this year.

    5) Bill Clinton portrays himself as compassionate, yet he supports giving prisoners lobotomies, removing sections of the brain.

    6) Bill Clinton takes shots at Dan Quayle's intellectual feasibility yet he has not presented America with any substantive, comprehensive agenda around economic development, foreign policy, budget containment or social policy.

    7) Bill Clinton says he is not a racist but he tries to distance himself from Jesse Jackson - a candidate who has registered more voters, served the interest of poor Blacks, poor Whites, poor Latinos, unions, laborers and farmers and by experience, intellect, and charisma, is far more qualified for the job.

    Therefore, we can conclude that Bill Clinton lacks integrity at painting himself as a staunch patriot, a people's servant, a compassionate liberal, a family man, a pro-woman candidate and a coherent scholar. Sister Souljah, on the other hand, was used as a vehicle, like Willie Horton, and various other Black victims. A poor excuse for an AGENDA-LESS candidate.

    Sister Souljah does not own a gun, has not shot or killed anyone, did not invade Grenada, Panama, Nicaragua, Kuwait or Angola. Sister Souljah has never ordered the National Guard into anyone's community and has not made drug deals with Noriega. Sister Souljah has never been a member of a terrorist organization, has no history of crime, has not burned crosses on anybody's lawn or lynched or hanged White people from trees. Sister Souljah has not systematically denied people the right to study and enjoy their culture in the so-called public education system. Sister Souljah did not send Haitians back to Haiti as though they were sub-human. Sister Souljah did not kill the native Indians under the guise of friendship. Sister Souljah did not cause or inspire police brutality, did not beat Rodney King, or shoot Phillip Panell and never shot and killed a little White girl in the head for stealing orange juice and let her murderer go free. Sister Souljah did not vote on the Simi Valley jury and let criminal cops free. Sister Souljah did not create the economic conditions of South Central L.A. or any other urban area for that matter, and did not create an environment of insecurity that forced people into gangs.

    Therefore, we can conclude that Sister Souljah is not a racist. Neither Sister Souljah nor any other African leader in this world has the power to collectively and systematically beat down and destroy European people, White people deny it all, refuse to discuss it, silence, intimidate and harass those that take a stand and fight back. Yes, I am angry, which means that I am sane. Only an undereducated and misguided African person would not be angry at the racist White transgressions of this society.

    The context in which my statements were made in the Washington Post was this, and I paraphrase speaking in the mind-set and in the mind of a gang member: Were you surprised at what happened in L.A.? No, I was not, White people should not have been surprised either; they knew that Black people were dying everyday in the streets of Los Angeles to gang violence created by poverty and social chaos, but they did not care. If young Black men in L.A. would kill their own kind, their own Brothers and Sisters, what would make White people think they wouldn't kill them too? Do White people think they're better, or is it that White death means so much more than Black death?

    Breaking it down, this means injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. As Sister Souljah, I reserve the right to fight against White racism--I have not ordered anyone to kill anyone. My album creates pressure on White America--a lot of pressure, and pressure is what America needs, deserves, and inherited--no justice, no peace.

    Queen goddess SISTER SOULJAH

    Where we find a True Divine THINKING Afrikan/Black Womb-Gender (Female), full with Knowledge, Understanding/Overstanding, and Wisdom, SHE becomes the enemies biggest threat. A Afrikan/Black Thinking womb-gender is a Black Kingdom builder, and SHE need ALL Afrikan/Black THINKING Men to Cover and build a Fence around HER from the enemies. Run, Run, Run, Afrikan/Black man and womb-genders, and protect HER, and wash her feet with your tears and dry her feet with your hair. Sit at HER feet and touch the HEM of HER Garment of Knowledge, Understanding/Overstanding, and Wisdom. SHE, the True Thinking Afrikan/Black womb-genders will take you back to the place where you were Born (with) Truth, The Land of Harmony, Balance and Order-Blissfulness.

    Queen goddess SISTER SOULJAH, I speak on behalf of ALL Divine Thinking sisters and brothers, because when we are One, the others can speak on each other behalf.

    Queen goddess SISTER SOULJAH, you are Being the Change The World/Afrikans/Blacks Need To See, A Divine Statue Of Liberation for Afrikans/Blacks/Afrika.

    Queen goddess SISTER SOULJAH, as a true THINKING Afrikan Queen goddess, it is our duty to eloquently equip our Afrikan King gods/Queen goddesses with the most vital and essential tools and weapons that will strengthen our Afrikan male/female Warriors on the Front-line. The eloquent words from the Queen goddesses lips, are to:

    Encourage, Equip, and Motivate each other, For Iron Sharpens Iron.

    The Destiny of Womb-Genders: Is the Destiny of the World. The revival, resurrection, and revolution (with Truth) begins with us. A Nation will rise no higher than its woman, and the profound eloquent words from the Queen goddesses lips to a Warrior (male/female) lighten his/her load, which frees him/her up to do battle.

    Queen goddess SISTER SOULJAH, as you enter any room, may your presence always have the appearance of a gazelle, like a Stag on the mountain.

    May the wisdom that comes forth from your lips, from your heart, a love which consumes with fire for the Afrikan Carbon Family, terrify nations, and shake kingdoms with Truth.

    I plea with you Mighty Warrior Queen goddess SISTER SOULJAH. Let no people, place or thing, cause you to miscarry or abort your mission. Carry your mission to its full term. I plea with you, sister, to do nothing to cause an interruption for your love for Divine righteousness.

    Queen goddess SISTER SOULJAH, I do not need to look for you among the flocks of other women. To you My Beloved Queen goddess SISTER SOULJAH, continue to, excite the hearts, souls, and mind of the people (with Truth) like a mare excites the stallions of Pharaoh's chariots.

    May these words continue to fill you with energy, power, and Spirit (All One) for the struggles to come, and there are many. For if we get tired of racing against the oppressors, how can we race against horses?

    If we cannot stand up in open country, how will we manage in the jungle. Many have joined in the attacks against us. Let harmony (which confuses the enemy) with understanding be the shield that protects you.

    Queen goddess SISTER SOULJAH, sharpen your Tongue (with Truth), for It (tongue) will pierce the hearts of our enemies, liars and deceivers, and ALL those that are against us will fall down at our feet, and the Afrikan/Black righteous Kingdom Will Come.

    No longer will our enemies be glad and make fun of us, like those who mock a cripple, with stares of hate. With Truth, stop our enemies, those liars, from gloating over our defeat. Stop those who hate us for no reason from smirking with delight over our defeat. They have no heart to speak in friendly ways. Instead they invent all kinds of lies about peace-loving people.

    We can no longer just stand as onlookers, as the Lions, the Den of Thieves, continues to gnaw and claw us. Let your food and drink be Obedience, to the energy, power, Spirit (all One) Oneness with The Divine Creator/Reveler. Obedience of Truth, is righteousness Mission Statement (MS)/Statement of Policy (SOP).

    Queen goddess SISTER SOULJAH, I Salute the Truth in you.

    Queen goddess SISTER SOULJAH, continue to pant like a deer thirsty for the water that is beyond a dry well.

    Queen goddess SISTER SOULJAH, may you continue to feast at the Tables of, Knowledge, Understanding/Overstanding, and Wisdom.

    Queen goddess SISTER SOULJAH, may you always Kiss the Lips of Wisdom.

    Queen goddess SISTER SOULJAH, I Am honored to call you my Divine Sister of Truth.

    I know Queen goddesses when I see them, and I know how and when to Salute and Bow, and I Bow to The Truth that resides in Queen goddess SISTER SOULJAH.
