Explanatory Notes

Section 1 states outright that the New Afrikan people are the source of power. That means that the well being of Black People is the primary consideration in any and all decisions and policies. As long as the people pay attention to developments, monitor the activities of their elected officials and challenge their decisions and activities, the government will remain an instrument of the people.

The source of power is what an entire system revolves around. The source of power is what the tendencies of a system naturally look out for. When an issue arises that pits X against Y, the tendencies of the system will automatically try to do what is good for the source of power. That is why it is so important that Black People are the source of power of the New African nation and the Black government.

[In the United States of America, the system revolves around commercial interests. That is why the system is so efficient in looking out for the interests of business, but not nearly as efficient in looking out for the interests of everyday men, women and children. The source of power in the U. S. of A. is money/profits, and money and profits are the only thing that matters to the system.]

Section 2 is very important. Those who have taken the International Law 101 course are familiar with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the Code of Umoja is progressive in that it adheres to all of the concerns addressed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Section 3, again, is further proof of how deeply and seriously these issues were being addressed by the Blacks who composed this document. We, Black People, can handle the responsibility of independent government as well as anybody. We need to stop playing Ourselves cheap!

Please review the articles and sections above. It would be to your advantage to be familiar with them.
