Afrika! Black people! Afrikans! Let’s do like China did and put the whole continent on lockdown by closing our doors to the rest of the world until we’re ready to come back out again as a superpower. Let’s do like Japan did after the atomic bombs were dropped on its people and strategize and regroup amongst ourselves until we’re ready to return to the world stage as a force to be reckoned with. Let’s do like Haiti did when Toussaint Louverture, Boukman and Christophe revolted against all foreign and colonial influences and became a free, independent, healthy and prosperous nation and people.
In the ‘60s if you bought something that said “Made in Japan,” people would laugh at you and say,”Don’t look at it too hard. It might break. Hahaha.” Because Japan’s early post World War II products were “rinky dink.” But by the time the ‘80s came around, nearly every appliance in every house and every car on your block was “Made in Japan.” Let’s put up a sign on the door of the Motherland that says: Afrika closed for 20 years or until further notice, for inventory, repairs, reconstruction and healing.
Let’s close Afrika to foreigners from 2020 to 2040, if not longer, and keep and decide what we want to do with our gold, our diamonds, our oil, our land, our resources and ourselves. Let us take our Afrikan riches, bodies, minds, souls and spirituality back in exchange for giving them back their religions, gods and saviors.
Let’s put all the voluntary intergration, assimilation and multiculturalism on hold for a while until we rehabilitate, recover and cure our schizophrenia from being gang raped by the other cultures of the world. In other words, no disrespect but how can you be a Gay Rights Activist Feminist Liberal Republican Capitalist Christian Muslim Army Navy Alpha Phi YT Harvard Graduate Afrikan and ever find time to be Black? You feel me?
We need more full time Afrikans who are Black on purpose; like black ants whose only concern is the welfare of and what goes on in their black ant colony. And bees who only concern themselves about the hive. Mother Afrika is the hive of all Black people. All humans. And the breadbasket of the world.
If your house is on fire, do you: A. Cry out to Jesus? B. Pray to Allah? C. Go to college and learn how to extinguish fires? Or D. Man up and put out the fire? I ask you that question because the Black House is on fire. One in five Afrikan babies die before they reach 5 years old and our communities are going up in flames. We desperately need more Black firefighters. NOW. The Gods don’t need you but your people do. Let’s worry about the hereafter hells in the hereafter, because we got hundreds of millions of brothers and sisters who need to be rescued from hell on earth here and now.
Let’s worry about the hereafter hells in the hereafter, because we got hundreds of millions of brothers and sisters who need to be rescued from hell on earth here and now.
We need folks to unplug themselves from the Matrix, pull out, withdraw and pull together. Harambe. I can hardly believe how gullible we Black people are sometimes, expending so much money, time, energy and resources fighting other people’s battles and supporting everybody else’s causes but our own. And then having the nerve to accept being reciprocated by being put on the bottom of the totem pole in every culture, cause and religion. (You tell me if I’m lying.) Let’s take a panoramic view of what good the bloody religions have done for us the last 6,000 years and peep their efficiency ratings, shall we.
Islam has not reproduced another Muhammad in 1,400 years.
Christianity has not christened another Jesus in over 2,000 years.
Buddhism has not given the world another Buddha in 2,600 years.
Judaism has not seen another Moses in 3,300 years. And
Hinduism has not produced another Krishna in 5,600 years.
That means collectively these top five religions have not given the world another Messiah in 14,000 years.
Zero for 14,000 is the worst batting average ever. Who in their right mind would attend a college if they knew they hadn’t graduated a student with a Master’s Degree in 14,000 years? They say if you keep doing the same thing over and over again and expect different results, that is the surest sign of insanity and retardation. Unlike the mystery schools of ancient Egypt that produced world teachers, community avatars, healers and magicians, the church pastor and clergyman doesn’t want you to graduate from his congregation. He wants to keep you and yours and those “money streams” in his stable for a lifetime.
And the main reason why these religions have such a high failure rate and have played a large part in placing the world in the pitiful condition it’s in today is because they all have borrowed or stolen from ancient African civilizations, culture and spirituality and worship great Black Afrikan messiah god kings (Black Jesus, Black Buddha, Black Moses, Black Muhammad and Black Krishna), but they all refuse to acknowledge their Afrikan origins. And they not only dishonor the living Afrikans and today’s Black geniuses, but they are trying to completely deface and erase us from the picture.
So these religions are cursed for disrespecting their elders, the Black race – the number one principle of Afrikans and indigenous people is to respect your elders – and for suppressing or trying to suppress the rise of the very Afrikan people they worship; largely because they know that if they catered to Afrikan glory and greatness, people would follow Afrikans religiously instead of these bogus religions and they would lose power over the people. People would want to “be like Mike” – Michael Jordon, Michael Jackson, Michael Johnson and even Mike Tyson and follow the Martin Luther Kings of the world.
So to put it more succinctly, I give thanks to all the religions for the good they’ve done and will continue to do, but when it comes to discussing Black unity, as Malcolm said, “You need to leave’m at home.” Especially when
Modern day Christianity is white supremacy disguised as religion.
Islam is Arab supremacy disguised as religion.
Buddhism is Asian supremacy disguised as religion.
Judaism is Jewish supremacy disguised as religion. And
Hinduism is Indo-European-Aryan supremacy disguised as religion.
And most of the churches in the world are basically little whore houses for the big pimp daddy Catholic Church in Rome – not Afrika.
Similarly every mosque and Muslim gives vitality and finances to Mecca and Arabian causes – not Afrika.
Buddhism has brothers and sisters chanting,”Nam myo ho renge kyo”, speaking tongues and turning heads toward Asia – not Afrika.
Every Jew puts Israel on blast, although no Jew could ever teach you how to be an Afrikan Hebrew.
And Hinduism, which has been called “sanctified racism,” is the godfather of all religions. And its main feature is its caste system, which puts light-skinned East Indians and whites in the upper castes and darker skinned Indians and Afrikans at the very bottom of these caste systems – forever – and appeases each class by giving everyone somebody to look down on and feel superior to and makes “happy slaves” out of the bottom caste members by telling them they are doing Dharma (God’s work and God’s will) and they are where they are because of their Karma (what they did in a past life).
So 200 million Afrikans have sailed in the bowels of the slave ship India for 3,000 years and have been designated as Black Untouchables (too despicable to even touch) and told not to go within 20 feet of the sacred Hindu temples because even if their shadows should touch the temple walls, the temples will be defiled. Wow! What a vicious con. Adolf Hitler was so impressed with how Hinduism sanctified white supremacy, he borrowed the Swastika from them – probably not knowing that the Swastika originated as an ancient Afrikan symbol representing the “wheel of life.”
During his annual Christmas speech recently, the Pope seemed to be defending his wayward priests by saying child sexual abuse is not an absolute evil. And as the head of the Roman Catholic church, the Pope speaks for all the churches and all the churches speak for the Pope. Men having sex with boys has always been Rome-antic. Like Jeffrey Dahmer, Mr. Penn State had a preference for little Black boys and he was given safe sanctuary by the whole university for decades. Screwing you and your children is their religion. For how long will you support these systems of abuse?
All of these bloody religions and/or their cultures have enslaved and are oppressing people, especially Afrikans. And these Baby Souls have the audacity to put themselves in the position as teachers and priests of God who claim that they can teach the Ancient Souls the way better than we can teach ourselves. Listen to the language of their religions: “Bow down!” “Cover up!” “Worship!” “Obey!” And “Thou shalt not!” That is not a language for the parents of humanity, the planetary elders and the gods and goddesses of earth. This is the language for the young newborn races and the barbaric juvenile delinquent man.
They stole your mojo and repackaged it and are now selling it back to you, brother. Europa is a differently lettered way of saying Yoruba. Christ and Krishna sound alike because they both mean “Black” in Sanskrit and Afrikan languages. And the word Messiah was inspired by the Masai (warriors) and means “Spiritual Warrior.”
But if all of this evidence and theft and deceit and wickedness isn’t enough to convince you to withdraw out of their worlds like a turtle into your protective shell of pure Afrikanness and get back to Black, because you want to continue your journey as a “happy slave,” then so be it. But I’m a Malcolm eXorcist trying to exorcize the devil from my people; so I must encourage all true Afrikan revolutionaries to drop their affiliations with these theological Bloods and Crips, organized crime and Mafia owned, blood soaked religions. We have to stop putting our wealth in other people’s banks, purses and pockets..
And even though I compare the Christians and the Muslims to the Crips and the Bloods, I will make slight exceptions for the Ethiopian Church and the Rastafarians and the Black Muslims because they prove my point: Their religiosity is Black and Afrocentric. The Rastas produce plenty of strong Black Messiah/Maisai Warriors, as do the Black Muslims. One billion multicultural Muslims cannot compete with the tiny Black Nation of Islam, who has given the world fierce Black warrior prophets like Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali, Louis Farrahkhan and Khalid Muhammad.
Dr. Martin Luther King proves my point also because he would’ve remained a relative unknown until he stepped out of the church and stepped up for Black people. And Reggae music has never wavered as a powerful, funky music for our people, Africa and the Most High. Plus I like how the Rastas are willing to work with anybody who is truly down for humanity, Afrikans and the Creator. Can’t you see? There is power in Blackness.
“Our Blacks are better than their Blacks.” This is what a Republican politician blurted out recently when comparing her party with the Democratic Party. And this pretty much sums things up across the board in world politics. These people cherish your skills but they actually think they own you – like pets. The NBA might as well be called the Negro Basketball Association because the vast majority of its players are Black. And I think the players went on strike so long this year because they’re starting to realize … we have great value, brothers and sisters.
Whole cities root for “our Blacks.” What would Major League Baseball and the National Football League be without us? And in the Olympics every four years America gets to show off and parade us around and say: “Our Blacks are better than yours.” Like we are a stable of well bred horses. Brothers, you have the best basketball players in the world. Start your own league. The ABA, Afrikan Basketball Association. Afrikan people start your own league: the Afrikan Union or the United States of Afrika.
But this sentiment goes much deeper than sports. How bland would Christianity and Islam be without Afrikans? Can’t nobody put nothing on blast like Black people. Who can fight better for a religion than Muhammad Ali? Or sing for one like Patti LaBelle? Afrikans were here for millions of years before anybody else, but these Johnny Come Latelys appeared on the scene a few years ago and made a religion out of you – Black Jesus, Black Moses, Black Buddha, Black Muhammad and Black Krishna, and out of Black Genius and Black Culture. And although they try to leave Afrikans and the African origins of their religions out of the picture, their underlying sales pitch to the world is “Our brand of Black is best.”
Even though the Hindu religious leaders paint pictures of Krishna as blue and any color but Black, the very word Krishna in Sanskrit means “black.” But the Christians say, “Our brother is God’s only Son.” He is exclusive – the best of the best. And the Muslims say, “Mohammad is the last prophet.” But they say the same thing about our great basketball players: There will never be another Elgin Baylor, another Oscar Robertson, another Doctor J, another Magic Johnson, another Michael Jordon, another Kobe Bryant, another LeBron James. They continue to underestimate the greatness of God and Black Genius, which continues to shock the world and outdo what the world believes is possible.
All around the world your Afrikan All Stars are worshipped, except in the West where you have to be clowning, on a leash or dead to pass the test. Tupac couldn’t pay to get into a university when he was alive but now that he’s passed on they have college classes and courses about him! When Michael Jackson got tired of the world of Cross-tianity, he went to Saudia Arabia. When he came back he was about to shake up the world and cross over and become a Muslim like his brother Jermaine. Or he had already done so and was about to make it official during his comeback world tour. But Crosstianity said if we can’t have you, nobody can. Michael Jackson got double crossed.
“Our Blacks are better than theirs.” One brags: We occupy Egypt now, the inspiration and blueprint for all religions. Another says: We occupy the hood. One says: We occupy their corner grocery stores. Another says: We occupy their behinds. One says: We occupy their hair and money with weaves. Another says: We occupy their minds.
Seems like everybody wants to occupy Black but Black people. And so the world is deprived of what it needs most: African values, African wisdom, Afrikan spirituality, Afrikan culture and great Black Afrikan genius. And this Black deprivation is a lot like sleep deprivation which makes you cranky and irritable and drowsy and can lead to schizophrenia, insanity and death. Because when you sleep, dream, meditate and pray, what do you do first? You close your eyes and see BLACKNESS – which is the door, the way, the truth and the source to everything, including light and power.
Humanity originated from a Black womb. And creation, like the morning sun from midnight, was born out of dark matter and black space. But Black women are being deprived of functional Black men. Black men are being deprived of loving Black women. And Black people and the whole world is being deprived of its planetary elders, Black people, in a healthy state of mind and productivity.
If you are a Harlem Globetrotter, why would you want to play for the Washington Generals? Know thyself, brother, sister. You are the life of the party. Religions and other such rashes and even whole species of animals have come and gone with the centuries and the ages, but your Blackness is here to stay. If you want to do something religious excavate the richness of your own Blackness and Black history and culture religiously.
Put yourself and your people on blast. Listen to that Afrikan All Star in the New Testament who said, “Ye are Gods.” And to that other Afrikan All Star, Marcus Garvey, who said, “Be Black, think Black, buy Black.” Your Black is better than theirs. Theirs is a copy. You are the Original. “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for,” said the Afrikan All Star June Jordon. “We are the Black Gods we’ve been searching for,” said Abby Lincoln. Once we get from under religious suppression and societal oppression, couples will be capable of having quintuplets like Jesus, Buddha, Muhammad, Krishna and Moses in one family or one birth. Woooohooo. And our Black unity will be the greatest religious experience in the history of the universe. Buy Black Wednesday.
