DIALOGUE AND DISCUSSION ON EDUCATION, ENVIRONMENT AND RACE
Is the new black, African, conscious movement, as they call themselves, attempting to replace white imperial thought, idea and theory with black imperial thought, concept and theory? First off let us address, white and black, preceding thought, concept and theory. There is no white or black thought, theory or concept, all thought is colorless. The people who identify themselves as black or white in this context had nothing to do with creating imperial conception so they cannot logically lay claim to it.
Imperialism is related to empire building or expansion. While there are people on this planet and have been for millennia, who are and were imperialists I doubt very seriously if the new African Nazis fall into that category. First off they are broke and pretty much powerless, no need to pursue that any further.
So exactly what are they talking about? A variety of things mostly associating themselves with ancient civilizations, especially Kemit or Egypt, that they have no genetic connection to, none whatsoever. That would be tantamount to American Indians saying they should be powerful because they are the decedents of the first dynasty in ancient China. In their instance they may have a better case of connecting to China than the various peoples who call themselves African America or blacks can to Egypt.
Obviously everyone who has an interest in ancient Egypt doesn’t think this way, but there are large infestations on the internet who are convinced they are Imhotep and Nefertitti incarnate. Now I’m good with all of that except when any thought or person who thinks differently contrary to their beliefs are targeted with spurious attack, not about their thoughts, but the person is attacked. I find that childish, pointless, feckless and actually an inferior behavior.
I understand bluff and bluster when I read it. I also understand the serious and deadly identity wounds these folks must be suffering if they have to reach way back into antiquity to validate their present existence. A whole, an integrated person needs nothing made up, guessed at or believed to be who and what they are. The very fact that they are here, and present is sufficient reason for their beingness. If I have to go into detail then obviously you are not one of those beings.
However, what really is toxic is that they would embrace a system of thinking, imperialism and the desire to dominate as their weltanschauung. That is telling in and of itself. To employ the same methods of their oppressor is not only short sighted, but just as evil. I ask, “Can’t you do any better than that?” Is that the only way to think about your world? A narrow world at that, one that constricts and hates freedom because if you want to think for anyone else or require anyone to think and believe as you do you have simply built a shadow monument to those that you claim you hate. The odd part is you cannot see yourself. You think it’s the other while all the time it is you.
The vain and smug attempts to differentiate yourselves from those of us you hold in contempt has only served to make you disdainful and contemptuous. The fleeting moments you can feel good about your specialness looks a lot like the religious zealots and bigots I see in Jackson Square in New Orleans proclaiming Jesus hates everyone but them. That is how you are showing up. My question is, is that how you want to show up?
Society requires that the ego or the false sense of self create an environment where it can feel special even if special is insane and fringe. Society needs the fringe, the bizarre to use as examples for the masses of how not to be. To that end your choice may not be choice at all. It may be the constructs way of using you for its aim. It’s happened to smarter folks than you. That is what the conversation between Neo and the Architect in Matrix 2 was about. Your choice is not only nothing new, it’s anticipated, planned and accounted for. That my dear gentle readers, if you fall into the category I have been writing about, would make you anticipated, planned and accounted for.
While your desire for change may be a good thing your application is flawed and defective if you want to get out of the matrix. You cannot accomplish that by mimicking and paying honor and tribute to it and indeed your behavior and actions are a testament to how much you love it for you act no different than those that kidnapped, stole and imprisoned those you claim are your ancestors, free people from the interior of Africa. You are not behaving like those prisoners, you are behaving like the nigga slaves from the empires that conscripted them to participate in those raids into the interior.
While you love the mantra, “Wake Up”, have you ever considered, do you ever ponder that perhaps, just maybe it’s your voice, the part of you that may have some sense of consciousness left, if possible, that may be shouting at you to wake up from your induced slumber?
