    All Hurricanes originate off the coast of West Africa from the cape Verdi Islands. The scared Mer-Ka-Ba (water house) and the Menet are the Power of Spiritual connections between Egyptian historical events and the Power of the storm called Katrina is vivid to those of us who study the mystics. As I was speaking yesterday about the spirituality of Black People in New Orleans I realized that most people haven’t a clue of what true African Spirt is.  So I am going to take it way back to that time when we worshipped the concepts of our ancestors we will compare the Mississippi Delta to the Nile Delta. To  our Ancestors, the time of the Menet Necklace or the beaded collar, in New Orleans this culture is alive but buried. Did it ever occur to Black People who created the  MARDI GRAS to coincide with the Epiphany or  the Theophany means in the Greek language “Vision of God”.  The beads thrown during the celebration are representative of the Menet given by Thoth to Hathor or the Daughter of Ra who was the EYE of Ra.  "  The deaths of so many Black People at the time before Katrina can be compared to  Hathor warrior daughter of Ra who killed so many human beings it was said that she walked in Egypt and the blood of men was as high as her thigh high boots. To stop her from killing all of man Ra gave her in marriage to his most valiant warrior Horus or Thoth in the Greek language. The word Theophany derived its meaning from the legend from our ancestors of the Menet Necklace of Hathor given to her by Horus as a symbol of peace and unconditional love. She is represented as the River for it is said that it was a river of blood of men that she walked through. This is the same spirit called Ochoun that lives in the rivers of the world by the Youraba and it is a more ancient version. The Mississippi Delta the Nile Delta?

    "Garvey's ideas particularly resonated with African Americans during the postwar period. At the core of Garvey's program was an emphasis on black economic self-reliance, black people’s rights to political self-determination, and the founding of a black nation on the continent of Africa. . . . 


    Perhaps the largest endeavor of the UNIVERSAL NEGRO IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION (UNIA,) was the Black Star Steamship Line, an enterprise intended to provide a means for African Americans to return to Africa while also enabling black people around the Atlantic to exchange goods and services. The company’s three ships (one called the SS Frederick Douglass) were owned and operated by black people and made travel and trade possible between their United States, Caribbean, Central American, and African stops. The economically independent Black Star Line was a symbol of pride for blacks and seemed to attract more members to the UNIA


    As a major figure of the Harlem Renaissance, Marcus Garvey was in the vanguard of the new awakening among African Americans. Although his philosophy was at odds with other leading figures of the era, such as W E. B. Du Bois, his influence could not be abated. Promoting his ideals in the art of oratory and through his newspapers, first Negro World and later the Blackman, Garvey has influenced almost every generation of African American writers since."  From The Oxford Companion to African American Literature. Copyright © 1997 by Oxford University Press.       Also tonight from REVOLUTIONARY SUICIDE, by HUEY P. NEWTON "THE POCKET LAWYER OF LEGAL FIRST AID" some things you should know in case you are being harassed by the Pigs. We must know how to deal with adversity on our own, it may not be enough time to call a lawyer

    Tonight Marcus Garvey's poetry will be read this is a sample of human history being told through other mediums. We started this work on Garvey's Birthday and named this week Garvey week on World Wide Africa. If we could only Unite all of the factions of Nationalist together to create a real Movemnt like the Back to Africa movement we would have successfully completed something of the dream of our forefathers. We will be working on this until it is done


    The Tragedy Of White Injustice - Poem by Marcus Mosiah Garvey


    28)


    And now  valiant Black men of the west


    Must ably rise to lead and save the rest':


    This is the ringing call Africa sounds,
    As throughout the Godly world it resounds;
    Clansmen! black, educated, virile and true!
    Let us prove too that we are loyal blue.
    We must win in the blessed fight of love,
    Trusting on the Maker of men above.


    (29)
    The Christian world is yet to be saved!
    Man, since the risen Christ has not behaved!
    Wanton, reckless, wicked, he still remains,
    Causing grief, sorrow, tears and human pains!
    Can we show the Godly light to anyone
    Seeking for earnest truth while marching on?
    If so, friend, let us tell you now and here,
    For love, freedom, justice let's all prepare!


    (30)
    God in His Glorious Might is coming,
    Wonderful signs He is ever showing,
    Unrest, earthquakes, hurricanes, floods and storms
    Are but revelations of Heavenly Forms:
    The proud white scientist thinks he is wise
    But the Black man's God comes in true disguise,
    God is sure in the rumbling earthquake,
    When He is ready, the whole world will shake.

    For those of you who have forgotten the meaning of UNITY, this is a reminder :


    In 1925, despite an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, Garvey was sent to the Atlanta penitentiary. His The Garvey Letter From an Atlanta Prison is dated February 10, 1925, and excerpted below as follows:


    Fellow Men of the Negro Race Greetings


    I am delighted to inform you, that your humble servant is as happy in suffering for you and our cause as is possible under the circumstances of being viciously outraged by a group of plotters who have connived to do their worst to humiliate you through me, in fight for real emancipation and African Redemption. 


    I do not want at this time to write anything that would make it difficult for you to meet the opposition of your enemy without my assistance. Suffice to say that the history of the outrage shall form a splendid chapter in the history of Africa redeemed. When black man will no longer be under the heels of others, but have a civilization and culture of their own.


    The whole affair is a disgrace, and the whole black world knows it. We shall not forget. Our day may be fifty, a hundred or two hundred years ahead, let us watch, work, and pray, for the civilization of injustice is bound to crumble and bring destruction down upon the heads of the unjust. 


    My work is just begun, and when the history of my suffering is complete, then the future generations of the Negro will have in their hands the guide by which they shall know the “sins” of the twentieth century. I, and I know you, too, believe in time, and we shall wait patiently for two hundred years, if need be, to face our enemies through our prosperity."

    What can we learn from our experience at the Atlanta summit I think is this most important lesson. One of the most damaging disagreement between leaders in the past have lead to the demise of the people and the movement for true INDEPENDENCE OF THE CHILDREN OF AFRICANS CAPTIVES in America north and south. Marcus Mosiah Garvey  and his AFRICA FOR AFRICANS. W.E.B. DuBois and THE TALENTED 10th.
     "Charges and Loss of Authority
    ?In 1922, Marcus Garvey and three other UNIA officials were charged with mail fraud involving the Black Star Line. The trial records indicate several improprieties occurred in the prosecution of the case. It didn't help that the shipping line's books contained many accounting irregularities. On June 23, 1923, Garvey was convicted and sentenced to prison for five years. Claiming to be a victim of a politically motivated miscarriage of justice, Garvey appealed his conviction, but was denied. In 1927 he was released from prison and deported to Jamaica.


     


    "The civilization of today as gone drunk and crazy with its power and by such it seeks through injustice, fraud and lies to crush the unfortunate. But if I am apparently crushed by the system of influence and misdirected power, my cause shall rise again to plague the conscience of the corrupt. For this again I am satisfied, and for you, I repeat, I am glad to suffer and even die. Again, I say cheer up, for better days are ahead. I shall write the history that will inspire the millions that are coming and leave the posterity of our enemies to reckon with the host for the deeds of their fathers"  Marcus Mosiah Garvey

    "The Breaking Process of the African Woman Take the female and run a series of tests on her to see if she will submit to your desires willingly. Test her in every way, because she is the most important factor for good economics. If she shows any sign of resistance in submitting completely to your will, do not hesitate to use the bull whip on her to extract that last bit of resistance out of her. Take care not to kill her, for in doing so, you spoil good economic. When in complete submission, she will train her off springs in the early years to submit to labor when the become of age. Understanding is the best thing. Therefore, we shall go deeper into this area of the subject matter concerning what we have produced here in this breaking process of the female nigger. We have reversed the relationship in her natural uncivilized state she would have a strong dependency on the uncivilized nigger male, and she would have a limited protective tendency toward her independent male offspring and would raise male off springs to be dependent like her. Nature had provided for this type of balance. We reversed nature by burning and pulling a civilized nigger apart and bull whipping the other to the point of death, all in her presence. By her being left alone, unprotected, with the male image destroyed, the ordeal caused her to move from her psychological dependent state to a frozen independent state. In this frozen psychological state of independence, she will raise her male and female offspring in reversed roles. For fear of the young males life she will psychologically train him to be mentally weak and dependent, but physically strong. Because she has become psychologically independent, she will train her female off springs to be psychological independent. What have you got? You've got the nigger women out front and the nigger man behind and scared. This is a perfect situation of sound sleep and economic." WILLIE LYNC

    Today on BlogTalk Radio the subject of why Katrina is a blessing in disguise. If this storm had not happened attention would not have been called to some of the most atrocious Government actions against Black Americans in the modern history of this country. Which has been reciprocated through out the country and not even recorded in the Public Media outside of the South.  We believe the killing of defenseless Youth began in The state of Florida in Jeb Bush country with the killing of Trayvon Martin in 2012 .  It did not, it began with a Youth in New Orleans a day before Katrina, who was shot in the back by Police, decapitated and burned. His head buried in one place and his body in another. 


    The death of Henry Glover was unlike any other in modern times.  The hate and brutal viciousness of the crime is reminiscent of the Age Of Jim Crow, and was never reported outside of New Orleans.  I promised the people of New Orleans that it would be my mission to let the world know what has happened to them and why.  The people of New Orleans have a unique history of African settlement before the coming of the White Man.

    Today August 30, the people of New Orleans continued the celebration of those lives taken so abruptly. Not just during the horror of the storm but in the aftermath, who were killed by the police and the national guard. Some of them so badly decomposed from burning, decapitation, and other terrible means that were witnessed by those who stayed. Some voluntarily and others forced to stay behind because of the lack of mobility due to illness, age, or medical conditions too dangerous to leave behind. Some the world witnessed being thrown into the Mississippi River by hospital staff.  The only lives spared were those just left there to die in the storm. Under the orders of George Bush the former president the national guard and military brought in ten thousand body bags to fill, contemplating the total annihilation of the people. This is insane and George Bush needs to be charged with crimes against humanity for his gross neglect and giving such an order presumably left no room for optimism of survivors. But a miracle happened and the people who were blessed to survive, survived through the power of the people's love for one another. Black love saved The People of New Orleans.


    That is what I experienced today as I said farewell to the city of my mothers birth, the Unconditional Love of Black People for one another. The compassion to help one another survive, UMBUTU, I AM BECAUSE YOU ARE.

    On today August 29, 2015 in Armstrong Park there is a commemoration ceremony that I participated in for those lost in Hurricane Katrina.  It has been the most uplifting part of this day to see sisters pray together from every religion unified in the spirt of love.  This is what Huey struggled so hard to make us see that the spirt of BLACK People must transcend the petty differences in every aspect of life. That racism was a wrong way to live if you were BLACK, that we should not mimic the ways of white people. To hate for the sake of difference only, and creat an environment of hate based on those differences. These are his words and they are in reference to the attitude of one who tried to hijack the Panther Party.


    "When a man is consistent, you at least know what is happening and what to expect.  Stokely says one thing one day and does another thing the next?.....Stokely told me he would support anyone he did not care who if the person were black.  We consider this viewpoint both racist and suicidal." We must learn self love and self respect for ourselves and project that attitude, not an attitude of RIGHT IS MIGHT. These are learned behaviors former slave holders gave us and we need to unlearn this. The idea that every Black Man is a thug or a criminal came from this projected idea and caused the death of many during Katrina who were shot by police and National guard troops. No other race of men has been labeled in such a way as to make the eyes of the world see us as bad people who do not deserve to live. And that is what happened to our people here in New Orleans. They sent 10 thousand body bags because the Government felt it would be easier to let people here die than to save them. It would be easier to seize their land and creat a New Orleans that did not include BLACK ETHNIC communities and rebuild as a White Utopia.
