There are questions you have asked yourself subconsciously. You already know that there is something wrong. What you know you cant explain, but you have felt it all your life. And that is what has brought you right here right now to this conversation at this time in your life.
Ask yourself: Why is it that black people are the minority in the American population but are the majority in the prison population? African-Americans are only 12 percent of the U.S. population, 13 percent of the drug-using population, but 74 percent of the people in prison for drug possession.
Ask yourself: Why is it that black men and women date outside of their race more than whites, Asians, and Hispanics all put together?
Ask yourself: Why is it that we are the minority of the population but represent the majority of new cancer cases, AIDS cases, murder victims, diabetes, heart conditions, high blood pressure, and STD infections. Chances are you know somebody in your immediate family who suffers from one or more of these conditions.
Ask yourself why African countries are rich in rubber, gold, diamonds, oil, natural gas, timber, coffee, and thousands of other valuable goods, but African people are the poorest people on the planet. In fact, can you think of one African country that is as strong, rich, and comfortable as any European country? The answer is there isnt one.
Here is the reality of what is going on around you. The dollar buys a nickels worth, our food is genetically modified junk, and the government that is supposed to protect us has sold all our asses to corporate interest.
There is a silent war on the black race. Because of this, we have learned to subconsciously hate and kill ourselves and each other, and you see that in black on black crime, domestic violence, and a general lack of respect for one another. Black men and women are at war with each other, you see that in the crisis of children born out of wedlock, and black men and women choosing to date and marry different races instead of their own. The war on drugs is a race war started by the government, the new Jim Crow. Blacks are disproportionately targeted, charged, and given felony sentences under plea bargains. That means these felonies keep black men specifically from being able to vote, being given fair trials, being able to get decent jobs, being allowed to lease an apartment, be allowed to use public assistance including food stamps and some government student loan programs, or being able to travel overseas. With no opportunity and no hope, most of these men end up right back in corporate owned prisons, meaning they make even more money for the government.
There have also been programs like COINTELPRO that legalized the imprisonment, illegal search, and even murder of black men and women involved in anything law enforcement thought was anti-American – that could mean handing out pamphlets.
Our children have been exposed to music and media that have hypersexualized them. Without guidance, this has resulted in some cases in pregnancies that ultimately lead to welfare destroying the independence of the black woman and oppressive child support laws that destroy the black man. College then becomes out of the question, and this has produced a black child; hypersexualized, obeying media that commands him to worship money, that turns villains into heroes, and surviving on welfare. Hungry, angry, and hypersexualized – he cant focus in class and is diagnosed as special education. For those that don’t drop out but stay in the public fool system, they lag behind their white peers, never to catch up. This is a beautiful cycle of destruction that has been unleashed on our people that would have made Willie Lynch proud. This is the nature of the matrix that we are in. This is the war that United Black America fights.
There are two ways that this war will end. Either we will continue to let them attack us unil are so sick, dumb, divided, poor, and weak to fight back. Then they have won, we go back into a type of slavery that will last longer and be more destructive than anything our slave ancestors could have imagined. Can you imagine a future world where black people have forgotten Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr, and Frederick Douglass just like we today have forgotten Sandiata, Denmark Vesey, and Noble Drew Ali?
The other way that this can go is that you and I and every black woman and man on every continent and island, in every desert and dark place armed with the knowledge that I have give you today comes into this movement to reclaim our place as the original man, the inventors of philosophy and religion, of architecture and mathematics, as the people who when Europeans were living in caves were building the wonders of the world. Starting in this country, we marshal together on the front lines of the war against our people as a United Black America.
Now that we have had this conversation you have two choices. You cant choose to be in this war or to not be in this war, you are already in it. You can surrender, you can pretend like its not going on, you can say “Well my life is fine, so I don’t want to worry about it”, and you can act like you don’t see it and cover your ears until we are slaves once more. Or you can stop investing in your own oppression and join this movement. In this movement, you will be required to do three things:
1. Learn about the battlefield that you are on. There is an enemy, there is a goal, there are people on your side, and there are weapons that you can use. United Black America’s most important goal is to give you this education to open your eyes to the fight that you have been in all your life, and to teach you to use the weapons you have at your disposal.
2. Grow in your ability to use this knowledge and teach this knowledge. Grow in your strength, intelligence, wealth, and influence for the benefit of our people as a whole. And finally…
3. Lead this movement. Lead the lost and the blind out of their ignorance like Morpeus led Neo out of the matrix. Like Harriet Tubman led the slaves to the North. This will be the hardest part of your evolution. Hariett Tubman said the hardest part wasn’t the trip to the north, it was convincing those blacks in the south that they were slaves.
So now is the moment of truth. You must make a choice. Choose to remain ignorant or choose a United Black America.
