chocolate counts as salad

instead of laughing and “liking” like zombies, the most revolutionary thing to do would be to seek information from everything – ask: why is chocolate considered unhealthy, if it is a plant? …oh – milk, refined vegetable oils and refined sugar aren’t plants.. right.

as usual, the good old “sense of humour” is celebrated at the expense of wellbeing.



reparations

Asking Europe to pay reparations to us melanated people is a failure to recognise the dependence they have had on the rest of the world since they came out. Everything over which white people currently have power and which they ‘provide’ to the world is stolen. Everything, except the desire to be like them.
Self-reparation is true revolution. We must cut the chain that maintains the dialectic, and this can only be done by restoring the the old order which had the minority respect the majority, the ignorant learn from the wise, and the pale respect the most melanated.

Self-reparation requires a conscious and organised people – consciousness being achieved through the process of sankofa, and organisation involving a sense of patience — not complacence, but allowing the revolutionary changes to take place with the continuing generations. Some things are beyond repair – in this case being the mindset of those who have been colonised for too long.
Not to say that there was no revolutionary consciousness among the past generations – its evidence lies within 90’s hip hop, black egyptology and even funk (Earth, Wind & Fire), not to mention our warrior heroes Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey, Dutty Boukman, and several more. One problem I have humbly identified, however, is the lack of holistic consideration. Several separate generations seem to have been focused on one aspect of revolutionary change, whether politics (such as 19th century independences and 1960’s civil rights movement), economics (UNIA), academia (black egyptology), media and controversial expression (1990’s hip hop), science (significance of melanin, nuwaubians, masonry) and identity (rastafari, black hebrews, moors, even pan-africanism)… We are well-numbered and well-connected (in terms of communication) to combine our skilled foci into one collective revolution.
In additon, speaking of complacence, there has been a fluctuence between the eras of revolutionary consciousness in that the consciousness repeatedly faded out. Where did all those 90’s rappers go with their messages? They sold out (Except a few). How about our black historians? Not enough of us are reading their work. Pan-africanists? They put on the white mask (Nelson Mandela?) Black economics? Good question – what happened to Garvey’s message? And the consciousness itself? It wasn’t passed down! There was no consideration of the next generation. No care was taken to ensure the next generation would understand white supremacy and its global system – thus the same problems are recurring, such as police murders of black youth, identity crisis, willie lynch syndrome, lack of black economics… when I look at my generation I see an imitation of the previous, facing the same problems and resorting to the same solutions of rioting, marching, and boycotting. Perhaps it’s time to recognise that we are the revolution – we are the ones who will heal the wounds and shield global destiny. A change within ourselves (as a people) will affect the system which depends on us. We are only dependent on the system provided that we stay colonised (or ‘Westernised’… I like to say ‘corrupted’).
Self-reparation and sankofa is revolution – our task besides achieving it is to maintain it.



decolonise

The West has corrupted the world in creating the illusion that money is vital for survival. Thus, the world is stuck in a dialectic with the West in that it is dependent on export economy to the West. The West take advantage of this dialectic by controlling the price in their favour.. but the definition of a dialectic must not be forgotten – the West also depends on the World – they have done so since they gained a fraction of its knowledge, hence why they experienced two ‘dark ages’ (or rather two REVolutions in their case). Colonialism, in all aspects (see previous post), was their only innovation which allowed them to experience the role as Lightbearers to the World – only, a chance to see this light has a price – land, knowledge, a few million lives…
As long as they have the land, knowledge and lives of the World, the dialectic will always exist, and it will always be in their favour.

We are to be today’s Harriet Tubman.

If Sister Harriet, after finding her physical freedom, had established her new life as a freewoman, had left the past behind her, and sought ways to better her new life, what would have been of those 985489564 brothers and sisters she had in fact returned to physically liberate?

I have seen demonstrations of gratitude to particular colonial nations for granting us that good ‘freedom’, gratitude to not have to live under such corrupt governments of the Poor Third World, gratitude for the opportunities to receive Eurocentric education and to work for our own money left after tax subtraction. This illusion of freedom only works on those who have abandoned all sense of solidarity, at least for their own people.

What is the use in celebrating the supposed integration of people of your race in your colonial nation, if outside your colonial nation, this same nation continues its imperialism towards your race? Had Sister Harriet deemed racism a thing of the past, simply because she found her way out of the chains, and received the opportunity to be instead a house maid… that would have been a self-absorbed folly!

The Orient is acknowledged and in many ways respected for its ancient (i.e. unWesternised) history and civilisation, and the people are not condemned for attempting to preserve it by means of discrimination (affirmative action), and this is perhaps the core reason why, generally, the Orient is prosperous today (and I am being cautious in emphasising the generalisation). At the very least, a person of the Orient can resort to a community based on identity.

solution is found in the cause
thus
revolution is not simply economic in nature
it is equally political
and spiritual, philosophical
and cultural

don’t void the actions of others
according to your ideals of revolution
what are you fighting for?
a solely economic revolution is not revolution
but evolution:
a nation of westernised africans
with good economy
we won’t even need an oppressor
we’d oppress ourselves

culture
politics
religion
philosophy
economics

balance
like the good ol’ days

the division among africa’s children is bigger than the atlantic.
the perimeters of colonial borders pull us closer to the prisons in our minds
in which monotonous drivel of colonial tongue bounce back and forth
headache
and i’m tongue-tied
tied to this tongue
chained to this prison
of limited philosophy
and yet i see the sun
light
shining on my skin,
doesn’t quite blend with these prison walls
and the springs on my head will not allow this constriction
and the walls of this prison will crumble down
by the strength of my essence
the accumulation of essences
of the mentally castrated
we will destroy this prison!

if only you could stop looking at these walls
