(1) Is the fact that white people "have the guns" reason enough to abandon Black Nationalism?

(2) Should Black People abandon Black Nationalism simply because there are traitors amongst Our ranks?

(3) Why do educated individuals project the image of Black People dying when discussions of Black Nationalism come up?

(4) What is the difference between an uprising and a movement for national liberation?

"Popularizing Black Nationalism" Part 3

Copyright 1996,1998, 1999 ASET, M. Mbulu All rights to everything on this web site are reserved.

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

There are five reasons that I can think of right now that explain why some individuals tell Black People to take a reformist approach to gaining equality. The first reason-- they have sold out to white supremacy. The second reason-- they are cowards. The third reason-- they are ignorant (they have not been properly exposed to Black Nationalism. Many individuals in this group will change their tune once they are exposed to better information.). The fourth reason-- they are fools and the fifth reason-- they are mentally inept. Believe me, you don't want to put your future in the hands of any individualwho falls into either of those categories.

#4 Some individuals will quickly point out that white people "have the guns." Two points should be made about that copout for once and for all. Number one, if your enemy has "the guns", then you know where to go to get "the guns". The same guns that your enemy uses to fire at you can be used by you to fire at your enemy. Number two, in white people's dealings with non-white peoples, it has never been the gun that decided the outcome of the hostilities. What decided the outcome was the treachery of white people, the failure of the attacked people to understand who they were dealing with and/or the tendency of non-white people to surrender because they were tired of fighting. Whites had the guns in San Domingo, but they lost; those Brothers and Sisters kicked their butts and put fear in their hearts. Whites had the guns in Korea, but they lost; even as he said "I shall return," Douglas MacArthur had no intention of breaking bad in Asia again. Whites had the guns in Viet Nam, but they lost; the Vietnamese people kicked their butts and upset the emotional balance of a generation of white soldiers. And, white people had the guns against the Native Americans, but it wasn't the guns that defeated the Red People; that rested in their failure to understand not only who white people were, but what they were. Yeah, white people got the guns, but they also got the short end of the deal in terms of intelligence, heart and know-how, and their guns will not enable them to overcome those shortcoming wjen they come face to face with Black People.

#5 Individuals who take Us for fools will also tell Us the following: "Before We can get to white people, We have to kill all of the toms and Black traitors first." Enough of that crappish rhetoric already! It evokes images of bunches of Black individuals going at each other like murderous madmen. The contradiction is in the following: Black nationalists are not dominated by their emotions. We are not in the business of arousing the masses to the point where they riot or bust loose in fits of anger; that is the work of reactionaries. Black nationalists realize that the traitors, for the most part, will not be in Our camp. As such, We'll just deal with them in the process of dealing with the rest of Our enemies. We won't have a special detail whose purpose is to take the heads of toms. And even if We had to get all of the toms first, that would not be a literal first. It would simply be a part of the process, in the mix so to speak. Understand, Brothers and Sisters, that Black Nationalism is calculated, scientific, process-rooted. Hanging uncle tom negroes in a frenzy will not bring about the ends that Black Nationalism seeks.

And stop acting like it's such a shame that there are toms among Us. Black People are not the only people who have traitors, fools and malcontents in their midst. Remember Benedict Arnold? Remember Aaron Burr? Such traitors and naysayers are par for the course, and We need to de-mystify their supposed ability to completely undermine Black People and Black Nationalism. All successful movements had to overcome that particular species of human resistance. Others succeeded in so doing, and We will succeed too.

By the way, I'll touch on another hypocrisy while We are on the subject of killing and dying. Why do educated negroes project the image of Black People dying for freedom and self-determination in such a horrible light? If Black People want equality and recognition of their human rights, why shouldn't they be willing to kill and die for them? Everybody else does! Palestinians with sticks and stones are fighting Israeli troops with guns and high technology means of destruction. They are serious. Africans used spears and poison darts against British bullets. They were serious. But We, Black People in the United States, are supposed to take care of business without doing likewise. Why do educated Blacks, the dark white ones, want Us to believe that? Why? Because they are appealing to Our emotions, not Our intelligence. Why? Because they are selling off Black People in the name of white power and self interest. If it weren't for toms like them miseducating Us and giving Us a warped impression of what We should be doing, We would be a lot better off than We are.

Be clear about this: Black Nationalism can emerge out of an uprising or it can be a process that terminates in (1) a peaceful resolution or (2) a war for national liberation. If Black Nationalism emerges out of an uprising, it will be because certain individuals were prepared to take advantage of a sudden release of energy. In the midst of such a release, they would teach the rebellers to clearly understand what they are rebelling against and how to sustain that rebellious energy, and they would provide a model that the rebellers could use to guide them further along. The rebellers would, in effect, merge into Black nationalists, and the rebellion would take on the traits of a war for national liberation.

If I could choose, I would prefer a different process. That process would involve Us developing Our Black Nationalist allegiances to the point where We realized the need for Us to have a Nation of Our own. At that point, We would let white America know that the time had come for Us to assume control of Our rightful share of North America. White America's response would determine whether that assumption is accomplished via peaceful or other than peaceful means. How long would it take to establish Black Nationalist awareness and behavior among Black People? If We could eliminate the agendas of fear and self interest, it could be done in less than five years. But with cowardly and selfish negroes in the mix, 500 years could pass and We could still be just as bad off as We are now--- or worse. Needless to say, such cowardly and selfish negroes must be taken out of the mix.

America is a trickster, and America has a lot of white and dark white individuals running America's tricks down on Black People. They can tell Us the silliest of things because they know that Our brainwashing will take Us to damaging conclusions before We have even thought the issues through. But the truth can put you on the path to freedom, and the truth is that Black Nationalism is a viable option for Black People. The truth is that Black Nationalism is the only option that can deliver equality to Black People. And the truth is that Black Nationalism has been distorted so much because white people know that Black People will recognize it when We get a good look at it. Black nationalists have to begin making sure that Black People get that good look at Black Nationalism.

In spite of appearances to the contrary, human history is not moving along at the speed of light, it is moving along at the speed of ignorance. Why? Because the people in power do not have the desire, wherewithal or understanding required to move the human family along at a respectable pace. That is another reason why Black People can jet onto the scene right now, progress immediately on Our own terms and quickly become a major international player. All We need to do is move along at the speed of audacious intelligence. At that speed, We can overcome Our enemies and help build a world that Black People feel comfortable with.

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