Listen Seeker, I come in peace,
“We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.” — Declaration of Independence
The Declaration of Independence is mis-titled. Many Africans have come across this document, most of whom have nothing but praises for it, yet a perusal will show the careful reader that the Declaration declares against African Humanity, overfills with European Hypocrisies, opposes the precepts of Democracy, fully supports the theft of Land, gives voice to the idea of monetary greed, challenges the whole world to war (see above) and embodies the beginning of African misery; this Declaration is an abominable document. Yet, on its anniversary, popularly called the “4th of July,” many Africans will celebrate the new misery, even more mentally enslaved than their physically enslaved ancestors (see Frederick Douglass). “Happy Birthday America, it’s a new year since you declared War against me. Can someone pass the pulled pork?”
This is not a Declaration of Independence, but a Declaration for Power over this Earth. The above sentence which really reads, “We must, therefore, [ . . . ] hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in [Subordination] Friends,” should be sufficient proof; yet, this whole document is explained on your behalf. African, the African Blood Siblings works tirelessly to restore your peace, possessions and consciousness. Give what you can in this donation link. Assist however in our relinquishment of European Nations and our establishment of African Nations at home and abroad.
An African Nationalist Reading of “The Declaration of Independence.”
By Onitaset Kumat
IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
This first sentence, like the last sentence, is a statement toward the formation of a new European Tribe. To fast forward, here is the last part of the last sentence, “we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.” These were the richest men of their time. Europeans may be right in celebrating the document, but Africans should widely despise it. This is the first document of, what’s known as, White Supremacy.
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
There are three communal bands (or bonds): Political, Economical and Cultural bands. The three are related. In relation to the other two, Politics manages (likewise Economics finances and Culture propagates–hence the Trinity of Liberation.) In dissolving the political bands, yet maintaning the economical and cultural, the declarants are not rallying around “independence,” instead the wealthy are looking to increase their share of wealth. So this is not a separation, but a request to be the exploiters; as to say, they did not mind the vices, they did mind that they were not the Power performing them.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Written during a time of African Enslavement, and written to more Powerful European Tribes, it’s clear that the sentiment is a proposal to a new European Tribe, wherein the signers were the proposed leadership. Nothing for us to celebrate.
–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –
56 Signatures legitimize this Declaration. Around 3,000,000 people lived in America. Many of whom were in bondage. Later, following a war, the Constitution of America wasn’t unanimously received.
What this tells you is that 56 Europeans saw that with their resources they can create a new European tribe to get more resources, so they signed this pact that they would become the beneficiaries of this economy and culture by any means necessary.
It’s interesting in light of the idea that their ideological descendants have governed Africans, never once requiring our consent.
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Historically speaking, neither the Safety nor Happiness of Africans had ever been the sole pursuit of European Governments; yet throughout the modern interaction of Africans with Europeans, Europeans have Governed Africans, not vise-versa. This is interesting, as African enslavement was concurrent with this document. While nominally it appears that the declarants are suggesting Africans ought alter or abolish the United States Government, as they were trying to abolish the British, this portion of this declaration really reads that we are not people to Europeans and neither our safety nor happiness will ever be their concern. 200 years later, this should be self-evident.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
It would be reasonable to presume these statements are directed to African people. “Light and transient,” “sufferable evils” is, to Europeans, our enslavement and our oppression in America. These, the European reasons, are not sufficient reason to abolish their government, these, the European reasons, we ought accustom ourselves to–and the European has promoted our accustoming–but a review of the complaints they pose against Britain will show we have more to complain against; therefore Africans who respect this Declaration should be the first to Separate from Europeans. The European’s reasoning demands we Separate.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
The European Asili (Natural Ideology) is one of Tribalism. Europeans reason that if Dominant the European is Secure. Security is of the utmost importance to Europeans. Much of the Mis-Education of Africans relates to the attempt of Europeans to be Secure. That said, despite Enslaving Africans, Europeans never perceive their “long train of abuses and usurpations” against Africans as Despotism to be thrown off, but an investment in Security. It’s for us to understand this Asili. The European will not destroy or alter his Government because we are Oppressed, the timing of this document assures that. It’s upon us to see this and Separate on our own initiative.
–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.
Despite our enslavement, the European explains to other Europeans that Europeans are suffering during this time period. That explains a lot about the Consciousness which consumes Europeans the World over. Two-hundred years later and Africans are still abused. That’s Patience.
The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.
Notice that the Declarants field their complaints against “the present King of Great Britain” after claiming “patient sufferance.” A King rules for a few generations, Africans had been enslaved in America since the 15th century. This document, while esteemed by many Africans, is an insult to us as a people. 400 years of Oppression should be sufficient time to realize Separation.
To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
You will notice, none of these facts compare to 400 years of Physical and Mental Enslavement. The Declaration, as it was shown, only relates to a new tribe wanting to govern the money of the colonies. Money. Mammonism. That’s all this is about.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
In other words, my Tribe wants to make the Laws benefit us and you are an impediment. This is the same relationship Africans have with Europeans, because, as we can see, Europeans make Laws to Dominate.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
There’s a running joke among Europeans. “Con-” is the opposite of “Pro-” therefore Congress is the opposite of Progress. Laws were not streamlined after the King of England lost power. The change was in the writers not the writing process. This is a document for Power. As Africans sit here reading it without any Power, we should be prompted to change our habits.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
Mark that since the establishment of America, despite that Africans had always hovered around 12 to 14% of the U.S. Population, there has only been 4 Senators who were of African descent. This is a declaration of Tribal Warfare; not a declaration of any grand or lofty ideas.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
Today, Europeans write in what’s known as “Legal English” and vernacularly called “Legalese” which for the most part is near unintelligible to most denizens of America, European or African. The Legal English makes the Legal Profession necessary in Legal Disputes. It also makes Laws obscure to their purposes. In other words, whereas this complaint is ridiculous, it pales in comparison to the reality of obfuscation being employed against African people. I.e. the reality that Laws are written in a language not taught to anyone but the Elite and written exclusively by that Elite.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
This ought bring to mind COINTELPRO. A Representative Body among African people is a Political Organization. Europeans of America have deliberately destroyed African Political Organizations. And during the time of Slavery, there were people known as “Patrollers” (of whom the Klan was a continuation.) “Patrollers” made sure Africans would not Organize without a European present; a practice which continues today.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
The theme of Security resurfaces. Also, to read this clearly, one understands that “convulsions within” directly references Anarchism i.e. (for Europeans) the absence of a Dominant tribe; and indirectly references Democracy i.e. “Legislative Powers have returned to the People” which, to wit, endanged the State (the Tribe.) In essence, therefore, this Declaration is an Anti-Democratic Pro-Tribalist document, and when Africans respect it, they go against their Empowerment and go toward empowering a European tribe.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
In essence, the complaint means Europeans were limited in migration and acquiring land. The relevance to us is two fold. The acquisition of land came at the expense of the Americans. In other words, this Declaration is an espousal of theft–hardly a noble document. Furthermore, in the second session of the First Congress, the Naturalization Act of 1790 was passed. This law limited ctizenship to “free white persons” of “good moral standing.” In other words, Europeans had nothing against limiting populations and everything against limiting non-European populations. It’s a Tribalistic document.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
As you gather by now, the declaration is one for Power–for tribal domination. This complaint refers to how Britain has Power and these declarants are Powerless. Yet we suffer and suffered the same relation of Powerlessness.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
Notice that Congress does the same thing today and Europeans maintain Power over Africans in the same way. Again, this is a Declaration to Power, this is the first step toward the Empowerment of a European Tribe in America.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
Today, the Federal Government has the most Offices and Officers in the World. These Officers not only harass Africans in America, these Officers harass the whole African population of Earth. The document is hypocritical, what’s more it is deplorable to any careful African reader.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
We return to consent. Africans never consented to the standing armies of America, i.e. the Police Officers or the above mentioned patrollers. Our consenst isn’t what’s important to these Europeans; what’s important is attaining the Power to manage the Standing Armies, this is what they did.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
Would you believe that a European complained about this? The Military-Industrial-Complex notwithstanding the European has always been the most Militaristic people on the planet. Tribalism is simply Militarism. 40,000 Years of Tribalism is 40,000 Years of Active Military Duty. Alas, the United States has the Military among Militaries, so there is more Irony here.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
The following list of “pretended Legislation” is a mockery to African people; we suffer far worse.
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
Nevermind that the first action of European enslavers was building a fort, today Africans deal with their descendants as Police Officers.
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
We observe this with European Officers and Vigilantes, and not only for Murder but for everything. Tawana Brawley was raped–gang raped for four brutal days–and now Europeans are actively taking $400,000 from her; she’s never even been served papers–they are just stealing it.
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
Europeans shove us into ghettos and control all “official” trade within.
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
In America, if you refuse to pay taxes, you go to prison. Hardly an anti-tax people.
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
We are systemically rejected from juries and no one needs to explain how White faces line up the process. Beyond this, most Africans are pressured by their ‘court appointed’ or in other words European Lawyer into plea bargains or no court case whatsoever.
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
Not only are our cases rarely local, it’s not us making the laws. As far as pretended offences go, Malcolm X’s grandson, Malcolm Shabazz, was given a ticket for j-walking on November 1, 2012.
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
Recall that there were Plantations with Absolute rule during this time. Europeans have since expanded those plantations, called them “states” and “America” and “businesses” and “corporations,” and Africans remain under absolute rule despite our protest. We are so oppressed that most of us don’t even know African Laws.
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
A total joke. If the Europeans charters were taken away, if their laws were abolished, if their government was altered then what did they do to Africans who lost even their names? Please read the African Affirmation.
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
No African should read this with a smile. Europeans alone legislate in America. More than 99% of the Senate is European, since this declaration. And what has it meant? Frederick Douglass explained in plain English, “there are seventy-two crimes in the State of Virginia, which, if committed by a black man, (no matter how ignorant he be,) subject him to the punishment of death; while only two of the same crimes will subject a white man to the like punishment.”
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
I want readers to know what Chancellor Williams reminded us, “whites are the implacable foe, the traditional and everlasting enemy of the Blacks.” We have wars going back 40,000 years. And when you study history, you’ll learn that they tell you about it all the time. The coat of arms of ancient Africans were sometimes ‘dragons’ or ‘serpents.’ This isn’t a new conflict–these people HATE us, this war is real.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
And how did enslaved Africans reach America? I thought plundering seas, ravaging coasts, burning towns and destroying lives was how Europeans greeted other people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
These same people hung Mary Turner by her ankles, cut open her stomach, stomped her baby on the ground then riddled her with Bullets, as Frederick Douglass made clear, “Go where you may, search where you will, roam through all the monarchies and despotisms of the old world, travel through South America, search out every abuse, and when you have found the last, lay your facts by the side of the every day practices of this nation, and you will say with me, that, for revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, America reigns without a rival.”
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
Europeans went on to create a legislation called “Meritorious Manumission.” I.e. if you Empower Europeans or Disempower Africans you may–may–get freedom. That’s still in effect, that’s minstrel shows and hip-hop.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
Yet whose land is it and whose buried beneath it? I agree with John Edward Bruce, “The more I see of [Europeans] the more I like dogs.” How are the Natives savages when they’re dead from your invasion?
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.
These enslavers of the greatest people on Earth, the Creator’s closest creation, dare to call themselves injured. How can they complain about petitions when they don’t redress divine petitions. Bear in mind, these declarants only petition for wealth. This is a mockery.
A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Notice they said “free people.” This is directly related to enslaved Africans. The declarants are saying they are fit to be tyrannical to you, and two hundred years of America show it. It’s upon you to see what they tell you in this “lofty” document. It’s upon you to throw them off your back; they made it crystal clear they will be tyranical hereafter.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
Read this carefully. “We hold the rest of mankind” as “enemies in War” and “in Peace Friends.” These were “learned” men. Look to their “learned” to learn what they are saying. Augustine can explain, “So there may be peace without war, but there cannot be war without some kind of peace.” What’s the peace in question? Their Domination. This is a declaration of Tribalism, clearly expressing they want to dominate the world and Britain’s in the way. Yet 90% of Africans in America today celebrate the 4th of July making pulled pork at the anniversery of their heightened misery.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do.
They are saying, “we are the New Tribe and we are after the World. Father you raised me well, but I want to bring fire and brimstone down on this Earth. You who are brutal are too merciful.” Meanwhile some Africans can’t wait to Barbecue. “Pass the corn, Ameria has another birthday.”
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
African! Pledge your life, your fortune, your sacred honor toward restoring Africans. These Europeans pledged 200 years ago that they would bring fire and brimstone and they have. You make a pledge if you want a better world. They plead to make it worse. They are your enemies.
