As A Legal Reality Internationally

We are Black People, We are not dark-skinned white people. We need a Nation of Our own. In order to succeed in this endeavor, We need to define Black Nationalism in such specific terms and with such lucid images that Black individuals cannot confuse it with any other ideology or train of thought. If We do not make Black Nationalism crystal clear in the minds and hearts of Black People, Black People will be primed to reject it.

In an earlier essay, I stated that Black People have to establish, "as a legal reality", the difference between Black People and white people in the United States. As a legal reality We can obtain recognition from international organizations like the United Nations. With such recognition comes rights and privileges that are supported by a world full of nations. As a legal reality We can gain membership in international organizations like the United Nations. With such membership, We do not have to stand alone, dependent solely upon Our assertions and Our resources. When We have complaints, a world full of nations will complain with Us. As a legal reality We can make treaties with other countries and establish self defense alliances with other countries. We can become part of a political reality that is much more powerful than any single nation. The international advantages of being a nation as opposed to a group of unhappy campers in a hostile country can not be overemphasized. National status opens doors, avenues and givens that stretch well beyond those of mere citizenship. We, Black People, need to have access to those givens.

We, Black People, need to be able to represent and promote Our specific and unique interests to the world as a distinct and unmistakable entity. We need to be able to borrow money from foreign governments and individuals; We cannot raise the money We need to push Ourselves forward within the structure of the United States. We need to be able to raise money by entering into commercial agreements with foreign governments and individuals; We cannot rely on the United States to invest sufficient amounts of money into Our development on a regular basis. We need to be able to export goods and services to foreign countries that address Our particular needs and circumstances, and We need to be able to import goods and services from foreign countries that address Our particular needs and circumstances. That way, more doors will be opened that can help Us eliminate the economic woes that haunt Us as "citizens" of the United States. We need to be able to enter into joint economic ventures with foreign countries, joint exploratory ventures with foreign countries, joint political ventures with foreign countries, joint military ventures with foreign countries, etc. These are keys to genuine freedom, keys that We can never possess as "citizens" of a hostile nation. There are countries throughout Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean that would jump at the opportunity to establish good working relations with Black People in North America. All We have to do is make it possible for them to approach Us in good faith and live up to reasonable obligations.

Additionally, Black People in North America need to be able to unequivocally identify with the forces of progress in the world. When a country like the United States invades a country like Grenada or Viet Nam, or interferes with the internal affairs of a country like Azania or Chile, We need to be able to support the offended country and help it reclaim and restore its dignity. When a country like the United States tries to starve a people to death because of disagreements with leaders such as Fidel Castro, Muuamar Quadafi or Saddam Hussein, We need to be able to relate to those governments based on Our perceptions of fairness and justice. When there is a schism in the world over the ecology and energy consumption, and countries like the United States insist on poisoning the universe in the name of profits, We need to be able to unequivocally side with those forces that recognize that commercial considerations must play second fiddle to human considerations. The international crimes of white people in the United States must no longer be borne by Black People in North America. The contention that a few have the right to prosper at the expense of the multitudes is a criminal contention, both here and abroad, and Black People must make it clear to all of the world that the multitudes are not obliged to adapt their tendencies to those of the few. Indeed, the few must be obliged to adapt their tendencies to those of the multitudes.

What type of people are We if We allow the very government that impoverishes Us to declare that We cannot legally seek relief from anyone else? What type of people are We if We allow the very government that impoverishes Us to dictate what measures We can take to overcome its abuse of Us? How can We accept the proposition that the government that impoverishes Us can keep Us from negotiating with others in order to overcome that poverty? The United States will never make it possible for Us to become free and prosperous as a People. That is why We need to create a Black Nationalist alternative.

We are Black People, We are not dark-skinned white people. We need a Nation of Our own.
