Listen Siblings, I come in peace,
“African people are both the Original race and the Original Philosophers, living both by humanity’s and philosophy’s origin. As such, it’s a fitting improvement on the English language to introduce the word “originalism.”" — Onitaset Kumat

As African people in America, we are rent from our ancestral languages; while this inability to speak intellectually harms us, opportunities arise in English which allow for greater insight than we otherwise could expect.
Asian Americans are familiar with the word “Occidental” to parallel with the word “Oriental;” the former meaning “West” and the latter “East.” When one reads of the ‘three races,’ a variety of distinctions arise, one being the Occidental, Oriental and Negroid race. This “Negroid” distinction doesn’t honor the pattern of the former two–which plays into the conceptions of these groups as setting us apart. However, a word can keep the pattern and properly define us: “Original.”
So to speak, African people are both the Original race and the Original Philosophers, living both by humanity’s and philosophy’s origin. As such, it’s a fitting improvement on the English language to introduce the word “originalism.”
Where occidentalism means the characteristic features of occidental people and culture and orientalism means the same for orientals; originalism follows for our people. Of which the characteristics are impressive.
One source for our characteristics can be seen in Cheik Ante Diop’s works; especially where he speaks of the “Southern Cradle” of civilization.
This word, on its own, improves the analytics of our language: When African people rely on Original scholarship, we can properly analyze the rudiments and the usefulness. Further, it tells that solely in Original scholarship can we rely on African liberation.
