    Are blacks superior to whites?

    Does Black Supremacy exist?

    And, if it does, is it a good thing or a bad thing?

    istlota,

    The answers would depend upon the person's particular worldview!

    According to Mr. Neely Fuller, Jr., supremacy is determined by who controls the universe at the end of the day.

    It can be a good thing, if that supremacy is used to create justice, insuring the one who needs the most help, receives it.

    Unfortunately, supremacy is not used that way right now, so it is bad thing.

    That is a very good question Istlota. I remember seeing a video with Dr.Cheikh Anta Diop where he gives reference to a period in history he called "African Imperialism" or the part in history where the ball was in our court so to speak.

    Now "Black Supremacy" is a concept that needs to be shuffled around by the proper Academics until we can find a good standing ground for it's use. You see, Superior people aren't usually as concerned with if you or I see them that way or not. It is only those who have no real power who are more involved in the cosmetics of power. Dr. Amos Wilson mentions that Black people should be in pursuit of power and not ashamed to do so. I agree.

    However, we must also re-program what we believe power is, and how it is achieved. So far, we are using White people as our teachers. And this is why we have so many of us sitting around speaking about other Non-White and Non-Black Races on the Earth as our inferiors. This is White psychology at it's best. True Superiority is told through history. For example, no matter what Whites have achieved, none of that will matter if and when they die off from the planet. Because only the story matters.

    What has the story of African people told us to far? We've been conquered several times, by Arabs, by Whites, by each other- but we are still here. What race on the planet has endured this long and this strong? Our lessons in power should come from nature itself. Our tolerance for the environment by itself proves what and who we are. But when our lessons in power come from psychotic people, we convert ourselves into psychotic thinkers. What has happened in Rwanda, and what is happening in part of Africa is part of this type of thinking. What is happening in our own communities is part of this type of thinking. I'm not saying Africans can't be barbaric, but are we barbaric? Africans have spread culture throughout the middle east and Asia, we have inspired every piece of heritage and tradition the world has to offer.

    It has to be because we are the "operating manuals" for the planet, and our nature, hair and skin color helps other cultures to recognized this. If you see an Animal with long legs and a long neck, it's level of "supremacy" is obviously not in potatoes. It's only the White race that teaches such things, which leads us to an abandonment of our subconscious intelligence. Whereas now, we are Giraffes breaking our backs trying to be like the potato picking White race. Reach higher. Only balance can rule. Those who rule outside of balance always fail. Those who try to gain power on the backs of others will always fall.

    "Black Supremacy" sounds too much like "Black Santa." Just a darker version of a negative experience. If the pendulum should swing in the direction of African power again, we will have to know how to hold it there, and perhaps this entire experience with the White race is here to teach us. We will have to learn to treat other Races on the Earth in the same manner we want to be treated. A Good Ruler knows how to delicate his or her power, it is the collective sharing and experience of power and responsibility that helps us to understand that we are not "Masters" over one another. A true Master doesn't require your approval of his or hers position.

    But I could be wrong....

    jamesfrmphilly,

    It is hard to tell when you are playing around and when you are serious! Please understand my right to reserve answering your question on the afore-mentioned basis, and so as not to defeat the purpose of this thread.

    You asked a question of me based on what I made in response to istlola's post. It would not be on focus for me to entertain your question and thus would distract from the discussion, by going off topic, as well as showing total disrespect to the thread starter!

    No. The whole concept of race is a farce in the first place.

    No, not anymore than "white" supremacy does. Like Metasaience implies...Black Santa is a fake too.

    It doesn't. If it did, it would be bad.

    This is an interesting thread....and for only one reason. There was a time when according to our definition, black supremacy did exist. Now, being that this is a historical fact, those of us who study history need to come forth and speak about how it was when "Black Supremacy" did exist. In other words, how were our people when we were on top? According to the records of all people we were 1. "World Respected". In saying that we need to ask ourselves "why were they world respected"? The history of the so called Greeks and Romans and other does not record our ancestors as negative people. In fact, a review of their so called writings call our ancestors the most knowledgeable, the most divine, the most honorable, the most just and the most beautiful.

    What does this mean? It means that our people must have been extending themselves in terms of teaching, of giving, of sharing and of enhancing the life giving skills of those that we came in contact with on a global basis. It means that our ancestors were not about physical domination and exploitation of those that they came into contact with. It means that we also made a mistake in terms of thinking that everyone we came into contact with and taught were those who would be grateful. Instead there were those who would begin the plotting of our own down fall. It means that those we took as being "HUMANE" were not as we took them to be....which is why we are where and how we are today.

    What it actually means is that, according to our present day definition of "SUPREMACY" there was no such thing and there is still no such thing. What it means is that, our people in the past or the present were not about and are still not about the "CONTROL" of others for "OUR OWN WELFARE, WELL BEING OR SURVIVAL". This has never been the African way and still isn't. So in terms of "HOW WE SEE THE WORD SUPREMACY, IT DIDN'T EXIST. However, if we are to be realistic, it existed not as "Black Supremacy" but as Human Supremacy". Why? Because according to the records our people were about the development and growth of the "Human Being" regardless of where they were. Check the records for yourself!!! Know Who We Were and Who We Are, NOT HOW WE WERE MADE TO BE!!!!!
