POSITIVELY BLACK Junious Ricardo Stanton What Africans Must Do To Survive "The critical issue for the Afrikan world is survival and development. Our survival as appendages of an alien paradigm is tenuous and crisis-ridden. Our survival is assured only with the conscious and learned determination to be Afrikan. Development is assured only as we begin to prepare our youth to be uncompromisingly Afrikan, self reliant and free of alien cultural, moral and psycho-emotional and spiritual baggage. All Afrikans who consciously engage in this war must enter it knowing clearly what the objectives are; adept at using the skills and tools available to us and determined to accept nothing short of total victory, total freedom and total independence. Thereafter we must be prepared to defend and perpetuate that victory." - The Sankofa Movement ReAfrikanization and the Reality of War Kwame Agyei and Akua Nson Akoto p.219 African people are in an all out war. Our enemies have stepped up their assault on people of color in their attempt to dominate not only the people of the world but its resources, land and labor. AmeriKKKan and British ruling elites are the prime movers keeping European jackboots on the necks of humanity. They are waging a global psychological operation/war based on a "response" to an event they allowed to happen: the highjacking of four commercial airliners and the subsequent "attacks" on the World Trade Towers and Pentagon. When I assert 9-11 was a staged event, I am not suggesting it didn't happen, I am saying it was executed with the foreknowledge, consent and sanction of the highest levels of the US government, to further their global fascist agenda. Just as the explosion on the USS Maine was the pretext used to start the Spanish American War and just as Winston Churchill goaded the Germans into sinking the Lusitania which was then played up in the controlled US media to give Woodrow Wilson an excuse to enter World War I on the side of Britain, 9-11 was pre-arranged. The December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor was precipitated and allowed to happen by Franklin Delano Roosevelt just as the first Gulf War was a set up. George H. W. Bush set Saddam Hussein up by initially approving Hussein's invasion of Kuwait (Kuwait was slant drilling into Iraq and stealing Iraqi oil). Once Hussein invaded Kuwait Bush betrayed him. I cite these incidents because human beings, families, tribes and nations are creatures of habit which when viewed collectively are called by sociologists and anthropologists; customs, folkways, and culture. The cultural paradigm of Caucasians is incessant bloodlust and war. We are at war, the evidence is irrefutable. Look at the rampant police abuse and racial profiling in our communities. Consider the homelessness in our communities, look at the condition of most of the men and women who are homeless, most of whom are black many are veterans of Viet Nam and the Gulf War! Contemplate the effects of the pervasive proliferation of drugs into our communities legal and illicit. Look at what the Eurocentric "education system" is doing to our children. The failed "War on Drugs" has resulted in massive incarceration of small time drug dealers and users of color as opposed to low arrest rates for white drug users who far outnumber us. Look at what cut backs in funding for drug treatment facilities, the support of the US government for opium growers in recently "liberated" Afghanistan (as opposed to the Taliban who had shut them down) and a whole generation of our youth who are being programmed for self-destruction by "Black artists" who while claiming to "keep it real" are actually promoting anti-African values of fratricide, misogyny, predatory materialism and crass consumerism are doing to our community. Those of us who are conscious, are aware of the implications of all this. What must we do to save ourselves? We must redefine ourselves as Africans, not as hyphenated (Afro-Caribbean, Afro-American) people. We must reject the cultural values/lifestyle of our enemies! We must realize while there are some "good white folks" they are not going to go against their cultural patterns to save us! There are few real white revolutionaries! We must educate our people to this reality. We must retrain ourselves to think race/survival first, not accommodation or compromise! Our most effective weapons must be mental/psychological. We must stop uncritically consuming and internalizing our enemies' world view and values. We must teach our children to identify the behavior patterns of our enemies so they stop falling for their okie-doke. By acknowledging our ongoing war reality and employing defensive survival tactics until we are strong enough to take the offensive, we can reduce our mounting casualties.
