    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    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.

    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.

    BlogTalk Radio may or may not air this show tonight, if you can not hear the show please read the byline. So we can proceed with the subject matter. This is one Poem of Garvey called THE TRAGEDY OF THE WHITE MANS INJUSTICE...."


    Under the canopy of Nature's law
    We shall unitedly and bravely draw.
    On the plains of God's green Amphitheatre,
    Swords, in rhythm with Divine Meter:
    Jehovah's Day will have surely come,
    With Angelic strains and Seraphic hum:
    The Guides of Heaven will direct the way,
    Keeping us from wandering far astray.


    (34)
    Like around the high walls of Jericho,
    March we, as Rio speeds through Mexico:
    Trumpets loud will the Guiding Angels blow.
    As scatter the enemy to-and-fro:
    Heaven will have given us a battle cry:
    'Oh Brave Soldiers you shall never die':
    Rally to the command of Heaven's King,
    As Cherubim to Him your tidings bring.


    (35)
    See the deadly clash of arms! Watch! They fall!
    There is stillness!-It is the funeral pall!
    A sad requiem now is to be sung!
    Not by Angels. but in their human tongue!
    The cruel masters of yesterday are done!
    From the fields of battle they have run!
    A brand new world of justice is to be!
    'You shall be a true brother unto me!'


    (36)
    This is a forecast of God's wrath:
    White man, will you turn from the evil path?
    There is still hope for you, among the good:
    If you will seek the bigger-brotherhood:
    Stop your tricks, frauds, lying and stealing,
    And settle down to fair and square dealing;
    If not, prepare yourself for gloomy hell,
    As God announces the sorrowing knell.

    "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."

    THE HANDS OF ETHIOPIA 


    "With the Renaissance and widened world of modern thought Africa came no less suddenly with her new-old gift, Shakespeare's "Ancient Pistol " cries: A fortune for the world and worldlings base! I speak of Africa and golden joys!


    He echoes a legend of Gold from the day's of Punt and Ophir to those of Ghana, the Gold Coast, and the Rand. This thought sent the worlds greed scurrying down the hot, mysterious coast of Africa to the Good Hope of gain, until for the first time a real world -commerce was born, albeit it started as a commerce mainly in bodies and souls of men.


    The present problems of problems is nothing more than democracy beating itself helplessly against the color bar, purling, seeping seething, foaming  to burst through, ever and again overwhelming the emerging masses of white men in it's rolling backwaters and held back by those who dream of future kingdoms of greed built on black and brown and yellow slavery.


    The indictment of Africa against Europe is grave. For four hundred years white Europe was chief support of that trade in human beings which first and las robbed Black Africa of a hundred million human beings, transformed the face of her social life, overthrew organized government, distorted ancient industry, and snuffed out the lights of cultural development. today instead of removing laborers from Africa to distant slavery, industry built on a new slavery approaches Africa to deprive the natives of their land, to force them to toil and reap all their profit for the white world." W.E.B. DU BOIS

    "Black Africa, including British, French, Belgian, Portuguese, Italian, and Spanish possessions and the independent states of Abyssinia and Liberia and leaving out of our account Egypt and North Africa, on one hand, and South Africa, on the other, has an area of 8,200,000 square miles and a population of well over one hundred Millions of black men, with less than one hundred thousand whites...


    The Statistics South Africa Census 2011 showed that there were about 4,586,838 white people in South Africa, amounting to 8.9% of the country's population. This is a 6.8% increase since the 2001 census.


    "Commercial exploitation in Africa has already larger results to show than most people realize. Annually $200,000,000 worth of goods was coming out of Africa before the World War, including a third of the world's rubber, a quarter of the world's cocoa, and practically all of the world's cloves, gum -Arabic, and Palm oil. In exchange there was being returned to Africa one hundred millions in cotton cloth, twenty five millions in iron and steel, and as much in foods, and probably twenty five million in liquors."W.E.B.DuBois 


    The African continent is richly endowed with mineral resources – this cannot be disputed. The US Geological Survey (USGS) ranks Africa as the largest or second-largest reserve worldwide for bauxite (the main source of aluminium), cobalt (used to make alloys and batteries), industrial diamonds (needed to cut hard materials), manganese (the anticorrosive element in steel), phosphate rock (a key ingredient in fertilisers), platinum group metals (a primary component in automotive catalytic convertors), soda ash (an element in glass production), vermiculite (a component in fireproof materials) and zirconium (used to manufacture heat-resistant ceramic materials).
