    When W. E. B. Du Bois founded The Crisis in 1910, as the house magazine of the fledgling NAACP, he created what is arguably the most widely read and influential periodical about race and social injustice in U.S. history.

    Written for educated African-American readers, the magazine reached a truly national audience within nine years, when its circulation peaked at about 100,000.

    The Crisis’s stated mission, like that of the NAACP itself, was to pursue “the world-old dream of human brotherhood” by bearing witness to “the danger of race prejudice” and reporting on “the great problem of inter-racial relations,” both at home and abroad.

    The magazine thus provided a much-needed corrective to the racial stereotypes and silences of the mainstream press—publishing, each month, uplifting accounts of achievements by African Americans, alongside stark accounts of racial discrimination and gruesome reports of lynchings.

    In the twelve years that will be covered by the MJP edition (from 1910 to 1922), The Crisis also addressed most every facet of life for blacks in America, devoting special issues to such topics as women’s suffrage, education, children, labor, homes, vacations, and the war. From the start, the magazine actively promoted the arts as well, and is deservedly recognized as an important crucible for the Harlem Renaissance.

    Among the notable authors who published in The Crisis during the MJP years is Jessie Fauset—who began contributing in 1912 and became the magazine’s literary editor in 1919—as well as William Stanley Braithwaite, Charles Chesnutt, Countee Cullen, Alice Dunbar-Nelson, Angelina W. Grimke, Langston Hughes, Georgia Douglas Johnson, James Weldon Johnson, Alain Locke, Arthur Schomburg, Jean Toomer, and Walter White.

    As you well know, this country was founded by criminalz who colonized this area just as they chalked up Afrika in the 18th and 19th century. As we had our plantationz in the south with house negroes and field Afrikanz, we find this trend has never changed as the yearz have gone by. Thanks to research done by brotha Steve Cokely, we have found there's a black secret society that's been closely associated with maintaining the grip of white supremacy on people of color. The same secret societies these house negroes answer to, have a long history rooted in the physical and mental enslavement of Afrikanz around the globe.

    This black "secret society" is called the Boule' aka Sigma Pi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated, founded May 15, 1904 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This is the 1st black fraternity in america and before the 1st black "college" frat, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated which was founded December 4, 1906.
    The Boule' is a black GREEK secret society based on another secret society founded at Yale University called Skull & Bones. The Boule's primary founder was Dr. Henry McKee Minton — along with Dr.'s Eugene T. Henson, Edwin Clarence Howard, Algernon Brashear Jackson, Robert Jones Abele and Richard John Warrick; all of Philadelphia.



    [​IMG]


    The founding member of the New York City chapter, WEB DuBois, said the Boule' was created to "keep the black professional away from the ranks of Marcus Garvey." (One thing that needs to be pointed out is the time period. Just over a decade after the founding of the Boule', Marcus Garvey's 'Back to Afrika' movement (also known as the 'Colonization Movement') and his newspaper, the Negro World, was reaching a million-plus people without tv or radio. DuBois emphasized, as Cokely stated,

    "the importance to steal the black professional away from Garvey because an Afrocentric organization that articulated and captured the black professional would give YT no safe haven in the black community, so the Boule' — the remaking of the house negro — was necessary to build a group of negroes who had an investment in protecting the white system as produced by YT having stolen this land... This is post reconstruction. Taking away the articulate negro, now desiring to replace them with organized institutions to keep them away from self improvement. So we find in the same period, as the founding of the Boule', the founding of the 4 black male (Alpha Phi Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi, and Phi Beta Sigma) and 4 black female (Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta, and Sigma Gamma Rho) college-based fraternities and sororities...We also find the founding of the NAACP and Urban League."

    DuBois was one of the strongest opponents of Garvey and was an instrumental "tool" in stopping one of the strongest grassroots movements of the last century. What was Garvey's plan? His plan was to take as many Afrikanz from the america's and start a settlement in the nation of Liberia and then help this new nation produce and control their own rubber crops and other industries in natural resources. Garvey said,

    "If the oil of Afrika is good for Rockefeller's interest; if iron is good for Carnegie trust; then these minerals are good for us. Why should we allow wall street and the capitalist group of america and other countries exploit our country when they refuse to give us a fair chance in the countries of our adoption? Why should not Afrika give to the world its black Rockefeller, Rothschild, and Henry Ford?"

    This would've meant no Goodyear nor U.S. Steel as we know it today, because it would have set a precedent that would've made all Afrikanz aware of their land and mineral wealth. This would've shattered the financial arm of white supremacy! DuBois, along with Alain Locke — the first black (Cecil) Rhodes scholar — publicly defiled Garvey by calling him a "gorilla" any chance they got. Locke was quoted as saying, "We hope the white man deliver's cause we crushed a great black thing, but we know he'll deliver or our people will attack and plague us forever more." These two house negroes made a bet that YT would come out on top and give a certain percentage of these greedy negroes, namely Boule' memberz, the wealth they stole from Afrika. What's deep is they didn't believe in Afrikan self-reliance and deferred their allegiance to YT hoping they'd give them table scraps instead of making their own pie!
    Understand the Boule' represents the weakest element of Afrikan people. As Cokely put's

    Now ask me that question again my Brother !! It's always OUR OWN who do us in every time in our attempt to do what?....Envy our oppressor and choose ALL OF HIS WAYS !!!...while there have always been those of us who clearly acknowledge that "whatever we are doing with and for the YT people, we can do for ourselves"!!! The NAACP and its members are not trying to let the YT people sneeze without making sure that they have a tissue for them!!

    Dr. John Henrik Clarke referred to them as "The Light Brigade"! :) I can see why! ;) They were and still are proud of being almost white! :( Now what are we going to do about them? Have you seen the Mandela movies? Whites in Azania have put in place, thru Nelson Mandela/ANC, their South Afrikan version of the Boule'! Watch the movies Winnie Mandela and Long Walk To Freedom so we can discuss them. No-one on this site has responded to my posts pertaining to same. I am amazed at the lack of interest in these movies, from which we could learn so much! :confused: Folks seem preoccupied with religion, spirituality, mysticism, and instigating BS! :( We have to start challenging the Boule' big time real soon! :mad: I've come to the conclusion that folks around here spend way to much time on this site, and not enough time reading and doing serious research! :mad: Imagine the quality of the communications on this site, if folks would just read/research as much as they post/text on this site!

    And this is one of my main beefs with our people. It's not that we can't know or can't read....we don't want to know or want to read. Then of course there's the cognitive dissonance issue with us also...as well as the greed issue which keeps us pimping off of poor people. Even those in the so called conscious community are doing the same thing. That's why they be selling DVD's at 25 and 30 dollars a piece when they can do it at 10.00 and still make profit. Everybody knows about Reverend Make Me Rich, so we ain't got to speak on him...but it's the same game with no winners emerging from our people on any side. Those who are kissing the mule aren't winning and those who don't kiss the mule aren't winning. So sometimes you just have to take the advice where it says; "Let The Dead Bury The Dead". In other words, don't stress trynna help anyone...don't waste any energy that drains you in your attempt to reach out. Just drop what little you can and let it go at that....because we are very good at something I have coined as "Intellectual Ignorance"...which is the ability to take our ignorance and justify it, rationalize it and intellectually speak to it as if it has merit when it clearly does not.

    okay.. so you would diminish Dubois's and all he did because he disagreed with Garvey? Even though he left America and moved to Ghana before his death?...

    and you would do that from lily-white Canada?...

    man please...

    had the masses followed Garvey into Africa, they would have been simply folded into the powerless masses to be moved about and controlled by the Colonial powers that be. With no military component, all that talk of "Independence" was nothing but talk.. and most of our people knew that.

    but that doesn't diminish Garvey in the slightest. Both of these men were consumed with trying to solve the problems of our people. Both of them contributed something significant enough for us to still be talking about them this many decades after their deaths.

    Its not necessary to Hears/Haggler, Malcolm/Martin, Tyler/Spike every pair of black men striving for similar visions. I know it sells tickets.. and magazines.. . and gets hits and clicks.. but, at some point we have to recognize the conflict game it's impact on unity.

    .. come on now..

    This week I am listening to "Our Kind of People" on audio book. This s#!% runs soooooo deep. I always knew about Black elitism, but to hear it from a Black elitist himself has been jaw dropping. The history of Black elitism cannot be swept under the rug by scholars. Many try to deflect attention away from the topic by claiming that these groups "give back" to poorer Blacks. I find this to be pure BS. For one charity is not the same as being an advocate for social justice and creating real change. Giving back implies that in some sense you are accepting the status quo of the need for a less privileged class of people that you will always have to "give back" to. Secondly there are many people today, even some who were once members of these elitist organizations/communities who have come forward with accusations that they are still bourgeoisie and divisive now as they were back then.
