    The non sequitur nation of African History

    in Radio

    The re-hashing of historical fact oftens conflicts with prevailing notions of rationality, science, or even common sense No where is irony more prevalent than discourse around African history Many scholars take the position the slave trade was a direct result of Western capitalism; thus justifying violent exuberance Recently, other scholars have refuted such claims exclaiming  the reverse is is more palpable In other words, more recent scholars reject the social conventions expressed adnauseam by their peers that capitalism served as catalyst for the U.S enslavement of Afrikan people.Thses scholars take the position slavery created the impetus for Western capitalism Amassing great wealth for themselves, Western leaders' motivations were inspired not by the pursuit of materialism but the pursuit of power of power which precludes capitalism ethics that is- the pursuit of wealth Clearly, wealth opportunity abound within the borders of Europe but Western excursions took place outside the boundaries of Europe. Copious amount of wealth needed to venture into foreign lands was not only risky but cost ineffective This begs the question: If capitalism is really about maximizing profits, what motivation would justify transgressions in a foreign land where the variables are unknown More importantly, any success would be fraught with danger and the human cost astronomical Is the motivation money or is there a deeper motivation? What do you think?

    Black History who is a Hero / Shero

    in Politics Progressive

    Who do you admire in the history African Women and Man of Earth? 


    I dont know much about Black History so for me this information instills pride in a people.


    Descendants of former African enslaved people needs to know that history to restore that pride. With pride come respect and honor. When you don’t know who you are and where you come will leave you open to except distorted facts about who you are. It is important you know where you can from so you know where you are going.


    Seeking more knowledge reduces the amount of self-hatred within the people the share my features. Stacey Dash recently let black folks know she is with white folks in destroying who she is mainly coz they are paying her.


    For the month of February, in order to bring back True Black Power / True Africa Pride for the Month of February my show will be devoted to Nationhood and our Elders that pushed this message from Marcus Gravy.  We must refine the message for today and still push for Nationhood today!

    BLACK OR AFRICAN AMERICAN

    in Current Events

    IN Observance Of Black History Month "LET'S TALK BLACK!"


    A Series on why WE SHOULD BE CALLED “BLACK” AFRICAN AMERICANS, “BLACK” HEBREWS, “BLACK” CHRISTIANS, “BLACK” MUSLIMS, “BLACK” MASONS, “BLACK” MOORS, ETC., KEEP IT “BLACK!!!!!


    In order to enslave us the slave master first destroyed our knowledge of ourselves, he changed our names, destroyed our religion, Our religion was “One” with nature and “One” with things that are natural to us, and he gave us his names and his religions.  He even changed our language to his.  When you take away one’s language you take away one’s history!  Next he divided us into opposing camps by arming us with false knowledge.  Then an incident was provided that would cause us to fight and weaken ourselves.


    We have always been lead to think that we are not who we are until we get an approval on paper from our oppressor.  “YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE!" So Join us for a journey “Black” to the future!

    Black History, Hidden, Lost Found/Black History In The Bible

    in The Bible

    Many Blacks/People of Color in America grew up without any knowledge of who we really are. No race on Earth history started 400 or so years ago. Some like to make this our starting point. Anything past the 400, we thought, was even more embarrassing than the slavery history we must deal with. Only, it was all one big lie. A nightmarish tale told to keep us from the knowledge of our true history...our glorious and tragic past. Heavenly Father told daddy Abraham ... 'Know for sure, your children will be enslaved and mistreated for 400 years in a land that is not their's." And so, we have come to the end of that 400 years. And, it is time for us to awake from our lost memory.


    We will discuss our precious Black Bible history along with various secular history books. We will explore Biblical, historical and scientific evidence to prove Black people in America... once known as the "people of the Book" (Bible)... are the true children of Israel, the grandchildren of daddy Abraham. I hope you will come along and travel with us through the exciting pages and doors of time. We are sure to receive a a great awakening of our minds with the real knowledge of us.


    Though this vital Black Bible history will be our main theme, we will also focus on many other issues that affects the Black community, as our survival is daily challenged.
