    The Sickle-Cell Anemia Research Foundation has raised the consciousness ofthe community, first by giving it the basic facts about the disease, and second by bringing to its attention the neglect of the disease in medical research. The community has learned through the foundation 's program that the people  themselves can organize and find solutions to the problems that daily affect their survival. HUEY P. NEWTON The 63rd session of the UN General Assembly in December 2008 adopted a resolution on the “recognition of sickle-cell anaemia as a public health problem,” and urged Member States and UN organizations to raise awareness of SCD on June 19 of each year.21 Despite the fact that the UN has called for global efforts “to bring the disease out of the shadows,” relatively little attention has been given to assessing the burden of SCD and how to reduce it in Africa, where about 85% of children with SCD are born.22 In 2010, the WHO Regional Office for Africa proposed a SCD strategy in official recognition of the fact that this disease is an important cause of child mortality in many African countries.23 Enough is already known to justify investment in public health SCD programs, such as those already in place for other conditions (e.g., HIV or malaria), for promoting widespread screening, health education, and treatment to prevent or manage SCD complications.

    "The threat to American apartheid led by Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X in the ‘60s initiated a great democratic awakening, especially among young Black People.  This awakening was the de-nigerization of BlackPeople —the process of turning sacred, intimidated, helpless folk into bold, brave hopeful people willing to live and die for Black freedom.  


    The Black Panther Party was the most advanced organized effort to exemplify this awakening. In other words, it was the highest from of deniggerization in niggerized America. The Black Panther Party was the greatest threat to american apartheid because it was indigenous in composition, interracial in strategies and tactics, and international invasion and analysis.  It was indigenous in  that it spoke to the needs and hope of the local community, as can be seen in the historic Survival Program of the party.  It combined bread-and-butter issues of everyday people with democratic empowerment in the face of issues of everyday people with deep democratic empowerment in the face of an oppressive status quo.  It  was interracial in that it remained open ot stratigic alliances and tactical coalations with progressive brown, red, yellow and white activists.   And it was international in that it understood American apartheid in light of anti-imperial struggles around the world, especially in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.  the revolutionary politics of the Black Panther Party linked  the catastrophic conditions of local Black communities (with the disgraceful school systems, unavailable health and childcare, high levels of unemployment and underemployment, escalating rates of imprisonment, and pervasive from of self-hatred and self-destruction) to economic inequality in America and colonial or neocolonial realities in the capitalist world system. Needless to say this great awakening was too much for the american establishment." West

    Every one of Black African Women in America have been touched by the murder of our people in this country. We come from a long line of warriors men as well as women, in our history of African Civilization we find records of this from Pharaoh Hatshepsut  her name means "Foremost of Noble Ladies", and on her accession as pharaoh she took the throne name "Ma´atkare" ("truth is the soul of Ra).Born in the 15th century BC, Hatshepsut, daughter of Tuthmose I and Aahmes, both of royal lineage, was the favorite of their three children. When her two brothers died, she was in the unique position to gain the throne upon the death of her father.  I would like to see an entire movement of BLACK AFRICAN WOMEN like these great women. Each Revoluton that involved BLACK AFRICAN WOMEN,  came to an abrupt very bad end for White Opperssors. The Amazons of Abomey called Dahomey caused the end of the slave trade in Oyo and the Gold Coast of Africa.  "The use of Female troops was due, at least in part, to an acute shortage of man power.  With its total population of less than 200, 000, Abomey often bested enemies with five or ten times as many people. Abomey prospered for a century and a half. When the state Union was formed, it was subject to the king of Oyo, but Oyo's power over Abomey weakened progressively.  In 1726, and again in 1728, 1729, and 1730, the cavalry of Oyo swept into Dahomey, defeated the troops of the Fon, and spread devastation.  After each invasion, however, the Fon, recuperated rapidly and they never lost control of their costal vassal states."

     WHAT EXACTLY IS TRIBAL WAR? 
    "For every individual his or her own cultural identity is a function of that of his or her people.  Consequently, one must define the cultural identity of a people.  This means, to a great extent, one must analyze the components of collective personality.  We know that three factors contribute to its formation: 1.) A historical factor, 2.) A linguistic factor, 3.) A psychological factor.   "Chapter 14 HOW TO DEFINE CULTURAL IDENTITY? Civilization or Barbarism by CHEIKH ANTA DIOP".
    When those characteristics become more important than the fact that we are all Black People that is when it becomes Tribal War.   The only conclusion that can be drawn from the evidence of the wars in Africa of internal power struggle is that those differences that can not be resolved.  So when Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seal created the Party with the basis of an African Political Structure.  Let's take the Political structure of Oyo for example which was very complex.  the Alafin had broad powers, and in typical Sudanic fashions, was held to be semidivine. His power was balanced, by a council, the Oya Mesi, which was headed by an official called the bushorun.

    This week we will start the study of the Amazon Warriors of Dahomey. The account of the Warrior Women of Oyo by the British Vampire Sir Richard Burton in 1863. In order for us to analyze why we are in this state of Slavery as captives of Africa we must examine the STATES OF THE WEST AFRICAN FORESTS from which we came.  There are many who condemn the Black African American Woman for her incredible ability and strength.  We are abused by the very seed we have sown, the Black African American male. Some of our sisters are not our sisters because they have no idea how history records us. The Willy Lynch Syndrome was specifically developed to conquer the African Woman and make her believe that she was helpless. Why? Because we are the most formidable enemy of the White Devil and his slaves who follow his lead and continue to abuse us. Tonight we will study exactly what happened before the slave trade in the West African Forests where we were captured and sold. “The women’s military corps was fully functioning unit.  It’s women often termed Amazons by visiting Europeans- fought along side the corps of male soldiers in both offensive and defensive actions.The Asian Model of Production, in the fall of the Chinese revolution of An Lu-Shan during the T’ang period in the 9th century when the men were all slaughtered by the emperor and the women sold into slavery, we tried to prevent this from happening to us. Although our destines are extricably tied together African women and African men have lost the unity of struggle and fight together. Instead of us uniting to fight a common enemy today we fight each other, because our men have been trained to hate and mistrust us. We as a people must find out why this is happening and change it, through the study of our past victory against the White Devils.   This week “THE HISTORY OF AFRICAN CIVILIZATION” by E.

    Orishas, Love and Sex in West Africa & Parliament with Phyllis C & Angie B.

    in Spirituality

    First Guest.....Marsha Scarbrough, author of Honey in the River:  Shadow, Sex and West African Spirituality discusses with us tonight her personal journey and discovery of the Orishas, Goddess Archetypes of West Africa, all while under the influence of her babalawo, or Yoruban lover who acted as her spiritual leader.  We'll talk about her personal soap opera and the growth she gleaned from that tangled relationship, as well as discuss what is Ifa and Ifa voodoo, who are the feminine orishas, the trickster and  how Ifa informs our contemporary lives.  This is a very heartfelt and candid look at how important it is to look at our own shadow, and in this case, how Marsha was willing to lie and betray other women in order to feel loved.  How she, and many women, are in denial about being in abusive relationships and willingly take part in self-sabotaging behavior and allow themselves to be exploited by others in positions of power.


    Second Guests.....Phyllis Currott and Angie Buchanan, prominent Pagan movers and shakers involved with planning the Council for the Parliament of World Religions will give us a behind the scenes look at this incredible inter-faith gathering that happened in October 2015 in Salt Lake City, UT, and we'll hear what's ahead for the next Parliament.

    Tonight how is the transportation issues to the hospital destructive to the BLACK COMMUNITY. Is there in fact a need for The Black Panther Party's People's Free Ambulance Service which provides free, rapid transportation for sick or injured people without time-consuming checks into the patients' financial status or means. Adequate ambulance service has long been a problem in Black communities 
    across this country. Hospitals either blanketly refuse to send their ambulances into Black communities or charge exorbitant prices if they  do offer the service. 
    The People's Free Ambulance Service operates with at least one ambu­lance on a twenty-four-hour emergency basis, and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on a nonemergency or convalescent basis. The services provided by this survival program are totally free. People are transported to and from the hospital doctor'so hospital a modern comfortable ambulance by courteous, efficient and knowledgeable attendants.


    The number of ambulances and other necessary equipment will vary with the size ofthe city to be serviced, but at least three to four ambulances should be used in large metropolitan areas with sizable Black communities. 
    Ambulances should contain oxygen equipment for those patients who may need it en route to the hospital; other health supplies such as first-aid kits; and most important, dispatch radio equipment so that the ambulance drivers can be in constant communication with headquarters. 1be radio equipment should be of the highest possible quality so that it will have minimal mechani­cal failures. 
    One or more nonemergency vehicles are used to transport the convales­cent to the doctor; clinic, or hospital.

    Tonight on World Wide Africa The Voice of the Pan African movement we continue with the reading of Cheick Ahta Diop, Civilization or Barbarism and our look at the failure of the American Government in 1968.  We will analyze how the lie of White Supremacy can not survive by comparing the African Mode of Politics and the Indo-Aryan Mode of Politics.  Contrasting the difference between the actual ancient governments and the longevity of the political system itself.  The Black Panther Party for Self Defense patterned their system of body politic according to the A.M.P. so that the people would understand that you can’t get blood from a rock.  A metaphoric statement of personification of the intimate object, which is the meaning of Chattel.   So to the White Supremacist who lies about everything, we could have never been Chattel because we bleed.  All human life comes form the African, and therefore so do these Ino-Aryan people the Caucasian people. Every empire they have set up has come to an abrupt end, where as our Pharaoh’s of Egypt that ruled the world thrived for millions of years called Dynasties.  


    So if we become a separate government for the survival of our people against and oppressive government we have enforced our rights as human beings.  The inalienable right to choose the government we give our consent to be governed by.  Every faction of the “Panther Mode of Politics” joined in a political and social body is the worst nightmare of those who wish to keep us in an oppressive state.

    People's Free Medical Research Health Clinics


    We believe that the government must provide, free of charge,
    for the people, health facilities that will not only treat our illnesses, most of which are a result of our oppression, but that will also develop preventative medical programs to guarantee our future survival. We believe that mass health education and research programs must be developed to give all Black and oppressed people access to advanced sCienti c and medical information, so we may provide ourselves with proper medical attention and care. 


    Point Six of the Black Panther Party Program's Platform of March 29, 1972, explains the reasons for the institution ofthe People's Free Medical Research Health Clinics, which provide free medical treatment and preventative medi­ cal care for the community. Private hospitals and doctors charge fees far more expensive than poor people can a ord, while public hospitals and clinics are so overcrowded and understa ed that their services are almost totally inade­ quate. The People's Free Medical Research Health Clinics o er an alternative to this problem.


     


    The clinics provide comprehensive health care for the community. Doctors treat  patients for common physical ailments and refer them to spe­ cialists if necessary. Laboratory testing is also provided in conjunction with local hospitals.


    Along with the Sickle-Cell Anemia Research Foundation, the clinics con­ duct testing and research for a cure for sickle-cell anemia.


    Child health is a serious problem in the Black community, and the clinics have developed a ChildHealth Care Program to meet this community need. The Child Health Care Program provides immunizations; screening and sickle cell anemia iron de ciency anemia, and tuberculosis; referrals; and complete physi­ cal examinations as well as treatment of illnesses."

    "The SAFE Program also aims to unite Black and poor communities by actively recruiting and hiring a number of our youth to help implement these much-needed services. Both drivers and escorts will be recruited from among the young and unemployed in our community, a strategythat at the same time will cut down the number of youth who would consider snatching a pocket­ book just to get a little change. In addition, drivers and escorts will be given extensive training in their respective fields, with both groups receiving inten­sive safety and FIRST-aid instruction.


    State, federal, and local funding of the SAFE Program will also mean addi­tional transportation-at least five vans with a seating capacity of twelve per­ sons each, plus the hiring ofa full-time program director and assistants. All totaled, the proposed annual budget for the SAFE Program comes to slightly less than two hundred thousand dollars ($195,530).


    E orts to acquire funds for the SAFE Program have not yet been success­ful. A formal proposal has been presented before Oakland Model Cities, a fed­erally funded poverty program, but that agency has made no commitment. A portion of Oakland's $4.5 million in revenue-sharing funds has been suggested for the SAFE Program, but the city administrators have been typically mum. Complete and adequate funding for the SAFE Program was, in fact, an integral part ofthe Seale-Brown Fourteen-Point Program to Rebuild Oakland in the 1973 campaign and, far from being abandoned, it will be included in initiatives and referendums.


    The SAFE funding proposal, like the program itself, is an argument for our protection instead of our abuse by public service agencies, which theoreti­ cally function on our behalf. SAFE is a simple but basic program designed to help and secure the lives of a very important yet often forgotten segment of our communities: the older people." HUEY P. NEWTON
