Housing Projects: Human Experiments on Black Self-Destruction

In the Service of our Ancestors and African Love,
Listen Seeker, I come in peace,

“Adult mortality was so low that 5,000 adults might have been expected from the observed reproductive rate. [However] even with only 150 adults in the enclosure, stress from social interaction led to such disruption of maternal behavior that few young survived.”
— john b. calhoun

In the 1950s, a researcher at the National Institute of Mental Health studied the effects of population density by creating an artificial environment for rats and mice where he observed numerous social pathologies from street gangs and homosexuality to neglectful mothers and psychologically withdrawn individuals. The study was repeated in the 1960s and continue to this day on Africans inside and out of america. The place of this identical study was appropriately named “The Projects.” There street gangs, rampant homosexuality, neglectful mothers and psychologically withdrawn individuals are numerous. It’s almost comical. But then again it isn’t. Many are awakened in the hood by gun shots from Black men against Black men. The reasoning? “Territorialism” created by white people–the researchers–who have all the data and all the studies on Black people easily accessible to them and control all of the drugs, guns, and people in the projects–their experiments. Black people all over are in an experiment. Will we break out? Will we organize and break out?

Housing Projects: Human Experiments on Black Self-Destruction
By Onitaset Kumat

In 2004, white people looked back on the history of western psychology and proposed a list of “Forty Studies that Changed Psychology.” Joined by papers from freud, pavlov, milgram and skinner, calhoun’s “Population Density and Social Pathology” (1962) captured the white imagination with hundreds of citations and many references in pop culture including novels, comic books and films. It’s impact on Black life is unquestionable; yet despite its Black impact or white popularity, you’d be hard pressed to find a Black person cognizant of its content. Fortunately, the reading man is a ready man, and not only can a reader find the research, a reader can even find several summaries:

[Observations made of rats which were supplied with unlimited food but limited space {in high-rises no less} showed that:] Dominant males became aggressive, some moving in groups, attacking females and the young. Mating behaviors were disrupted. Some became exclusively homosexual. Others became pansexual and hypersexual, attempting to mount any rat they encountered. Mothers neglected their infants, first failing to construct proper nests, and then carelessly abandoning and even attacking their pups. In certain sections of the pens, infant mortality rose as high as 96%, the dead cannibalized by adults. Subordinate animals withdrew psychologically, surviving in a physical sense but at an immense psychological cost. They were the majority in the late phases of growth, existing as a vacant, huddled mass in the centre of the pens. Unable to breed, the population plummeted and did not recover. The crowded rodents had lost the ability to co-exist harmoniously, even after the population numbers once again fell to low levels. At a certain density, they had ceased to act like rats and mice, and the change was permanent.

In essence, the government-funded calhoun correlated population density with social pathologies and since then Black people have been herded into population dense housing projects and riddled with identical social pathologies: street gangs, confused mating, neglectful mothers, child abandonment, high mortality, withdrawn individuals, no harmony, permanent corruption, kwk. The name ‘projects’ isn’t coincidental and its targeting of Black people isn’t accidental. For instance, on the surface, in the united states of america, the Housing Act of 1968 prohibited the use of high-rise developments for families with children (unlikely given how many children are in high-rises today.) The real legislation in that law was Section 235 which gave white people a means to get out and live in the suburbs, effectively leaving Black people behind to the full wrath of the experiments. And it worked. white people lived in the suburbs and Black people lived in the projects. What we know as white-flight is just ‘when the project begins’ and what we know as ‘gentrification’ is ‘when the project ends.’

Of course, the casual reader may have been mislead into thinking research on rats has no bearing on human beings; however, despite the applicability of the research, the intention of the researcher to apply it to people, the u.s. government funding the research, or the impact of the research on architecture, psychology and science in general–the fact remains that not only do Black people live in ‘Projects’ and white people as early as 1573 correlated dense urban living with ‘rascall and vile sort of men’ (see baret j.); but the more salient fact is that white people have countless studies on Black people and white people control Black environments. Certainly, Black people have a short list of studies on whites, most of which use white studies on white people and few of which are significantly read by Black people; but it’s very similar to the lab rats boldly writing books on their white researchers. Are they truly studying or reiterating? And when they publish with the researchers, is that not more study information for them?

Now, that Black people are studied by whites is undeniable. If you want to learn a fact about Black people, the quickest means is, unfortunately, going to whites. What’s more white people are all very quick on Black facts and statistics; much more so than Black people are of white facts and statistics. However, why white people study Black people isn’t self-evident. I won’t waste much time on conjecture: some will say for sexual accessibility, to financially exploit, to kill us off, to study themselves, because only one Race can be on top, all of the above or none of the above–who knows? The truth is that Black people are in different labs that white people constructed, whether you are in the hood, the prison, the suburbs, the gated community or the white neighborhood. And white people collectively put you there for collective study. What for? Only whites know. What’s more important is for Black people to acquaint themselves with the research and even moreso the smartest solutions out of this predicament.

For instance, it’s self-evident that if social decay is a result of a lack of space, the solution to the Black problem is emigration. In other words, if the excess rats left the laboratory, the remaining society would have thrived. However, in the rat situation and the Black situation, the whites limited his subject’s individual mobility. The classic example is that Black people wish to move out of the hood all the time; but those who are successful in that transition often find themselves priced out of their destination and returning poorer than ever. Why? Because whether you are in the hood or in the suburbs you are a part of the experiment and if, for instance, the researchers in the suburbs want you back in the hood, he need only make a call and you’re back in room 14. Am I lying?

Further, it’s worth noting that in calhoun’s research, he would observe that the mice became territorial and violent toward one another. But to make it easy for him to verify that the mice were territorial he would mark a handful of mice with different colors. Another scientist then commented that despite how mice are color blind he may have created the territories by assigning different colors, in which calhoun noted that it was possible, especially since the mice could possibly smell the difference between the marks. However, he also lended the idea that although the colors were used on the mice, many mice were uncolored but were as territorial notwithstanding. Anyone in the hood can tell you that different projects (territories/turfs) are represented by different gangs who wear different labels which are oftentimes colors [i.e. neighbors in the same building would rarely be gang rivals]. Not everyone in the building wears the label–but in order for whites to easily study them, many gang affiliates do. Two prominent gang colors — blue and red — have been in Black projects since 1969 and 1972, respectively; very shortly after the 1968 Housing Act and for nearly 50-years! And the flags/bandanas that gangs associate with are manufactured and distributed by, you guessed it, white people–the researchers.

It’s easily said, not so easily done, that Black people should disassociate entirely from territorialism. However, it behooves us to condemn without understanding. In the mice situation, the limit of space also meant the limit of roles; in human terms, the limit of space also means the limit of employment. As in, without predators or diseases, the mice lived longer lives and occupied their social roles longer than nature would permit, so a lot of younger mice would reach the age for social roles and be without any. One impact of this was to destroy the mice’s mating, just the same as an unemployed Black man isn’t as attractive to a Black woman as a gainfully employed Black man or, by design [often and unfortunately], a well-to-do white man. Again, a cursory study of the hood–a prominent project being done to us–is that near every local employable opportunity is taken by eurasians; from the stores we shop down to the police force [The police are not only there to kill us, but also to take our jobs!] The few jobs Black people find in the hood are custodial, transportational and more often than not menial; and many of those employees are aged and not going to give those jobs up. So you have countless young Black people without employment yet under normal circumstances it would not be horrible. For instance, if a hiring factory were nearby, hood employment would be solved [Note to Reader: Build a Black Factory {computers, phones, cars, soap, hair products, frozen foods, kwk}]–or if plentiful arable land was nearby, hood employment would be solved. But there are no hiring factories and not enough arable land near hoods. This is by design.

Further, the researchers decided to test what impact they can have on Black people if they offered Black people employment as drug dealers and gave them guns, movies, music videos and comic books which reflected how to effectively make a living violently drug dealing. Note: anyone can tell you that Black people do not import drugs into the united states and Black people do not manufacture guns in the united states, but somehow Black people have possession of large quantities of drugs and guns in the united states and its usually the ones with drugs who have the most guns–and those guns are never pointed at the researchers. Anyone can tell you this. It’s easy to suggest Black people should sell their drugs to white people or point their guns at white people; but the experiment is always being perfected. Today, white people mis-educate Black people in schools. They know, in fact, that most Black people only have an 8th-grade education, to this day. They know Black people will drop-off/drop-out in High School because High School is geared toward College and few Black people (particularly males) aren’t intimidated by College when they are being failed left and right. They designed it and we are the lab rats, falling hook-line-and-sinker. In fact, white people know that this article I am writing is above the 8th-grade level so he knows many Black people would not only pass up reading it but will also be unable to grasp fully what is being written. The cracker is laughing. He designed his system to have minimal flaws.

So what in the world can you do? I personally organized a handful of Brothers and Sisters to go into the hoods (where our population is most dense) and endeavor to radicalize the Black population there. Whether it is making them cognizant of the experiments, informing them on how to organize economically, or giving them self-knowledge above and beyond the 8th-grade, that is what I do aside from these writings. And it’s resisted by Black people! It’s thankless work. I’m even resisted by the Black men and women I organized! Only a handful are 100% committed. So the white man sees yours truly, Onitaset Kumat, petitioning certain communities and he’s laughing. The cracker even nods at me. He looks at me and says, without saying, “Nigger, we would have given you any position your Nigger-ass wanted. You individually are smarter than most of us. In another time, we would look up to you, like we looked up to Kmt, Kush, Timbuktu, Olmec, etc. You are a special Nigger, why you wasting your time on those other Niggers?” But personally, I’m just not with abetting the crackers’ agenda. And it’s upon Black readers and leaders to take the same stance. This white man mis-organized Black communities to be self-destructive. Countless Black people, like the lab rats, are turned against themselves while ignoring the impact that the researchers are having. You’ll have your crowd of Black women saying Black men ain’t it; or Black men saying Black women ain’t it; or Black people keeping white secrets (particularly sex secrets–you know who you are! [read “Pieces of a Puzzle: The One Thing Black Females Will Not Talk About” by Reneathia Tate); or Black people serving white people cheaply. But until Black people wake up to the experiments and work toward undoing it, they will be at the mercy of a sadistic and savage people. Black people today are sexually accessible to whites, servile to whites, working for whites, subjugated by whites, mis-educated by whites, mislead by whites, deprived of maturity by whites, reporting all of their information to whites, requiring permission for basic things by whites, being fed and clothed by whites, studied and experimented on by whites; and these white people make sure of it everyday.

Black man and Black woman, you are in a Project. Call it the hood, call it Prison, call it the suburbs, call it a neighborhood, call it Earth, you are in a Project. The solution has always been what it always was: Maroon and Build For Self. I said it for over five-years and ancestors willing, I’ll keep saying it for another one-hundred years. You must break free of white people: then and only then will you be free. Know yourself, know your enemy, and be the rare African who is 100% committed to our liberation. That rare African is our most valuable asset.

The Only Superpower Black People Should Aspire to Have

“I never understand how Black people whine about having too few Black super heroes but don’t mind not having any Black super powers.” — Onitaset Kumat

Like many African people, when I was younger I was familiarized with white super heroes and was often asked what super power I would want.  This is an allegory detailing that thinking of ‘super powers’ isn’t only a child’s game.  Every Black person, everywhere in the world, should aspire to have this super power!

The Allegory of the Black Super Hero Program or
The Only Superpower Black People Should Aspire to Have
By Onitaset Kumat

When I was fourteen-years-old, I was among a small group of children selected for a pilot program at my school. A fresh out of grad-school white child psychologist had noticed that young Black children were as interested in comic books and cartoons as white children, so he devised a program to assist children in selecting future occupations for themselves. The program was to encourage Black kids to use their imagination by declaring what ‘super powers’ they would want; after sorting out why that power was chosen, the organizers would explain to the child what skills they needed to make that dream a reality.

I sat in a room of fourteen other kids. One-by-one, we were interviewed by the white psychologist and four white teachers. When the first child said “Flight, to travel to school faster,” the teachers recommended a career in aeronautical engineering to craft a jetpack. When another child said “Invisibility, to walk into the girls bathroom and scare them,” the teachers suggested a career in physics to study optics. Another child said, “Superspeed,” and she was informed of a career in physical therapy. Another wanted to heal people and medicine was the obvious recommendation. A few more children went before me and every white person was impressed with the Black imagination–until it was my turn.

“Oni!” the teachers called me in. “What super power would you like?”

I looked at these white people and asked, “Can I have any super power?”

“Absolutely. Suppose you were a superhero and you wanted to save people. What super power would you want?” the lead psychologist asked.

“And I can’t get in trouble?” I said looking at my teacher who stood there with a false grin.

“No, this is a no judgment zone. We just want to help you pick a career.”

“I know what I want to do,” I boasted.

Frustrated, the psychologist demanded, “Well, answer anyway. What super power would you like?”

I had an answer, but I wasn’t sure how it would pan off. I paused momentarily. Glanced at my teacher and said, “Nigeria.” These white people were confused and asked me to repeat myself. I did, “Nigeria.” They figured I didn’t understand what a super power was. They asked if I understood, I assented and repeated “Nigeria.”

“Oni, a super power is flight, super strength, being able to talk to animals!” my teacher snarled.

But I rebutted, “america, russia and soon china are all super powers; I want Nigeria to be a super power.”

The teachers looked at me with anger. The psychologist, however, still wet behind the ear, asked me “Why?”

I told him, “If I want people to be saved or helped, it’s upon me to have a super power that caters to the people I want to save or help. You white people have america and russia. The chinese people have china. If Black people had nigeria, we wouldn’t need super heroes, we’d have a super power.”

The psychologist couldn’t help but ask, “Do you say Nigeria because you are from there?”

I admitted, “I do not know where I am from. But Nigeria is roughly 15% of Africa’s population. It doesn’t take a high school degree to tell why I think Nigeria should be a super power.”

“You may be seated,” the psychologist blankly told me. I didn’t bother to ask what career recommendation the teachers had. I knew that there was no career in america that would develop Nigeria into a super power. And besides from that, the program was discontinued after I took my seat. Too many Black kids heard of the only super power worth having and the teachers lost all faith in the psychologist; to this day he hasn’t found work.

That’s why, I never understand how Black people whine about having too few Black super heroes but don’t mind not having any Black super powers. It takes a power for a people to be heroic; and if Black people want a super power, their only career option is to be Pan-Africanists.

What if Series #1: What if the Black dollar circulated near exclusively among Black people?

What if the Black dollar circulated near exclusively among Black people?
By Onitaset Kumat

Children love treats; lovers too. On a train, I sat across from a european jew whose child begged him for his favorite chocolate. Nearby, a young oriental girl sipped on a strange tea. Farther, a man with an accent from england ate chips. Despite my experience with chocolates, teas and chips, I could not recognize a single brand. Yet, when I saw a white-american child snacking in his corner, I noticed he ate the same as the Black couple on the opposite side of the train. All aboard the train observed the same unassailable fact. Whether treats for children or lovers, the Black man is the only nation which doesn’t provide for his own.

Malcolm X, in a speech entitled “Cooperative Economics” explained it precisely:

The reason that most black business fail, is because they are selling a product that they bought from white man. They themselves have gone to the white man, to purchase something to resale to you. Everything that’s in the Negro store is a resale, and he has to resale it at a price high enough to get his investment back. The black person that’s in business is acting as a salesman for the white wholesaler, and the white producer. The real owner of merchandise that the black business man is selling, is the white man. He robs you when he sells it to you, and you have to turn around and rob your people in order to get your money back, and then you wonder why they won’t come in your store. As black people we have to learn to produce something. We have to be producers as well as consumers, and then we can set the sale price at a low cost. If you produced the product that you sold, then you would be eliminating the middle man, and you could sell to your people at a low cost. Everything that leaves your pocket goes into the pocket of the white man. We are being robbed because we produce nothing of our own. Mr. Muhammad said that we must be producers as well as consumers. I don’t care if you have a million dollars business, if you are not producing anything, then you are just a rich slave. I don’t care how wealthy you are, if you are not producing you are just a slave for your master. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad teaches us that it is better to be independent, than dependent.

To this day, you would be hard pressed to find a contrary business model in the Black community. I am the first man to point out a Black business to invest in; but I’m not foolish enough to think that merely supporting a Black business is exclusively supporting Black people. Not just yet. The Black dollar has a short lifetime, particularly because Black business acumen is want in the Black community.

Many of us have heard of the elusive Black dollar. We’ve read when an NAACP author explained the direness of our situation:

“Currently, a dollar circulates in Asian communities for a month, in Jewish communities approximately 20 days and white communities 17 days. How long does a dollar circulate in the black community? 6 hours!!! African American buying power is at 1.1 Trillion; and yet only 2 cents of every dollar an African American spends in this country goes to black owned businesses.“

But how many of us understand the full gamut of our foppery? BreakingBrown.com reports that while some will debate the reality of the Black dollar’s circulation; others are looking at white-Black wealth disparities and can say conclusively that Africans in america today have less comparative white-Black wealth than Africans in Azania (south Africa) during the height of apartheid! Meaning that we boast of 1.1 Trillion unorganized dollars which go right back into white hands, while white people boast of 16 Trillion organized dollars which have national and international consequences.

Should the Black man ever hope to raise his nation to the top, he must come to understand fundamental economic theories. Namely, he must understand that an economy has at least three aspects to it: production, distribution and consumption. One can go deep into the intricacies. But neither action without theory nor theory without action are reputable pasttimes for an intelligent people. Today, it is common for the Black man to produce nothing, distribute his enemy’s goods, and hope another Black man will consume the foreigner’s product at an exorbitant rate. It’s at best a temporary solution to a terrible predicament; but typically it’s plain stupidity and a horrendous recipe for failure. Instead, the Black man must commit himself to producing for himself, distributing for himself and consuming what he produced. Short of that basis, the Black man will lock his nation into squalor.

But we sometimes are too selfish to comprehend the sacrifices that will need to be made. Some Black men are hopeful for revolution. I as well. But Black people must come to understand that the revolution against our enemies can not precede the revolution we have among ourselves; particularly our ideas. We can not continue to think Black business is reselling the white man’s products. Go to china town if you dare, the chinese man sells “Made in china.” Go to the european jews if you dare, the european jew sells “Made in israel.” Go to the white-american man if you dare, the white man sells “Made in america.” But what does the Black man sell? “Made in Africa?” Only when he sells himself!

“Made in Africa” is not a thing among Black people; not even on our continent. “Made by Africans” is not a thing among Black people; not even on our continent! What pride can a child have when his Mother must go to a white man to give that child a treat? A child turns two and is told to clean himself with toilet paper a white man produced. Why and how could he look at his Father with confidence? Black man you must bring your Brothers to think more intelligently, or you will condemn yourselves in the eyes of your Sons.

When the Black man decides to be the Race’s producers, distributors and consumers, Black problems will be solved overnight. The Black man won’t need to beg his enemy for employment; he will be race-employed. He will be a productive man for his people, not for his enemy. And he can hire his sons to be race-employed, race-proud and race-disciplined. Today, the white man says, “Go hurt your people” and the Black man says “yes” because the Black man does not work for himself! But when the Black man works for himself, the white man can not tell him anything. When the Black man produces his own food, clothing, shelter and consciousness, he does not need to turn to the white man for anything. If the Black man wants something, he can turn to his Brother and get what he needs. But until then, the Black man is a glorified slave.

The white man can shoot a Black man, but the Black man will still swear that the white man is the greatest. The Black man says, “He feeds me.” And his son watches the Black man and says, “I do not want to be like you.” The Black woman watches the Black man and says, “You’re not much of a man.” The Black man’s daughter watches him and says, “My mother was a fool.” And you, Black man, look at yourself in the mirror and say, “Another man feeds me so I shall not fight him.”

When you take control of your economy, you can challenge anyone. So Black man, make it your priority to take control of your economy. Put your thumb in the ground if you must eat. Put your foot on the peddle if you must deliver. Put your mind to work if you must build. But do not sit back and make the white man make a fool of you. You must recognize you are a man. Take lead! And know everyone is behind you. So come, gather your resources, gather your troops, and lead a revolution of the mind among our people. If we fall doing our masculine duties, our Sisters will come to our aid. But if you fail to even attempt your masculine duties, you will have failed your purpose for living! Get up. Rise up. And forever hold dear the immortal wisdom of our Marcus Garvey, “Up, up you mighty Race, you can accomplish what you will!”

Will to control your economy and ACCOMPLISH WHAT YOU WILL!

“An answer brings no illumination unless the question has matured to a point where it gives rise to this answer which thus becomes its fruit. Therefore learn how to put a question.” — African Proverb

One question which Africans should retrain themselves to ask is “What if?” I intend to ask and answer several “What if” questions hoping that readers and writers can not only join the conversation but also organize these hypotheticals into realities. The following questions are slated to be written and answered, although when they are answered is still left up in the air.

If the reader wants, answering these questions here in the table of questions would be very motivational and possibly may not even require me to write up my own response.

Here are the questions
(expect more to be added [also order expected to change].):
  • What if the Black dollar circulated near exclusively among Black people?
  • What if Umar Johnson was a mainstream celebrity?
  • What if Africans in and out of Africa identified as African first?
  • What if Nigeria was a Super Power?
  • What if Mulattos were seen as more white instead of more Black?
  • What if Black gender norms were rooted in African Masculinity and Femininity?
  • What if Blacks were known internationally for their Math and Science instead of Music and Sports?

Five Facts You May Need to Know to End Police Brutality

In the Service of our Ancestors and African Love,
Listen Seeker, I come in peace,

“What reveals itself to me ceases to be mysterious—for me alone: if I unveil it to anyone else, he hears mere words which betray the living sense: Profanation, but never revelation.” — African Proverb

A lot of Black people do not want to end Police Brutality. They don’t. What it takes to end Police Brutality is likely going to cost the life of those who attempt to end it. white people are not that stupid to make it easier than that. Police Brutality is institutional. The Police train in martial arts–Military arts–Brutal arts. There’s no such thing as “Police Brutality,” it’s only white people policing Black people during a time of war. white people never treated their prisoners well. Go visit the prison today. You won’t find a prisoner being well-treated. Your Black ass is a prisoner of war. You are just in minimum security. But you are still in prison. Your commissary may have vegan options but you are still in prison. It does not take a rocket scientist to tell you what prisoners need to do to solve their problems. I studied rocket science. It’s interesting. It’s very interesting. But I could have passed on studying it and I still could tell you what a prisoner needs to do to solve his problems.

I do not want anyone to misinterpret what the following list is. This list is not a guideline. Only you know what you should be doing. These are five facts that you already knew that you might not have put into perspective on the issue of Police Brutality. Do not confuse what I am writing. Read it in its entirety. Share it if you will. Print it out. Distribute it. Save it on your harddrive (as whites aren’t fond of the distribution of facts). You can even get the T-shirt. But remember it’s not a guideline. These are just,

Five Facts You May Need to Know to End Police Brutality
By Onitaset Kumat

1. It’s not about Police, it’s about Race.

Police brutality is a misnomer that confuses more than it clarifies. It’s akin to the phrase ‘war criminal.’

As African people we should understand the definition of a ‘war criminal.’ Crime is not a matter of ‘deeds’ but a matter of who has Power. For instance, when the germans lost europe’s second european war, many were tried for ‘war crimes,’ and yet the british who did the same or worse, weren’t. Separately, the deeds that the british have done in their 77-nation empire were reprehensible. Yet where were the tribunals for the british in Kenya? In Azania? In Nigeria? cecil rhodes, one of the more despicable europeans, who killed Africans for sport and once even celebrated a 5,000 man afternoon genocide with champagne is considered a war hero; not a war criminal–in fact the “Rhodes Scholarship” is considered the most prestigious in western society. Even Mugabe was considered a war hero up until he turned against white people. The reason being that ‘war crimes’ like ‘police brutality’ are institutional. Invading a nation and raping their women is a matter of policy, as much as tackling a Black man and shooting him on the ground; or during Azania’s apartheid, police shooting student protestors en masse. Individual ‘officers’ do not make these skills up on the fly; they are institutionalized. They are drilled and trained. It’s martial arts with the intended purpose of brutalizing and killing Black people.

It’s not police brutality; it’s a white interpretation of policing. It’s white people as a collective financing/employing a subset of white people to brutalize and kill Black people. The police are the other branch of the military; they deal with intranational warfare on a city level. America’s intranational war is against Black people. It’s not about Police, it’s about Race.

2. whites put their children above even their money.

The white man’s god is his money. But white people would gladly sacrifice their money for their children. Maybe not all of their money; but to white people, their children are worth at least some money. That’s actually why Al Sharpton is a “Black Leader” today. Back in 1989, Al Sharpton, C. Vernon Mason, Moses Stewart and Alton H. Maddox, Jr, held a powerful boycott against white businesses that eventually crippled their economy. The whites called a meeting to negotiate an end of the boycott; but when Alton H. Maddox, Jr, told them to hand over their sons that murdered one of ours, the whites told him plainly, “We do not snitch on our children.” To Alton H. Maddox, Jr, that meant the end of the meeting, but to Al Sharpton, it has meant the beginning of his career. Sharpton got paid and has been selling out ever since.

All said, it’s interesting that white people who aim to make statements to the white community perform school shootings or, in other countries, school/bus/public slashings. To date, Black people don’t. But it’s an interesting fact that white people speak to their community by targeting their most vulnerable.

One white boy who performed a school shooting sparked so much change in the white community it’s almost comical in retrospect. In 1999 some cracker shot up Columbine High School under the pretext of being bullied. It doesn’t matter how many kids committed suicide before that for the same reason, only after that incident did white society take anti-bulllying seriously.

I’m not saying that this white boy is right (just like I wouldn’t say the 1963 bombing of 16th Street Baptist Church in Alabama was right). But it is certainly interesting that anti-bullying is such a prevalent concept today; considering how pro-bullying america was prior to Columbine (literally arguing that bullying builds character)–meanwhile ‘anti-‘ so-called ‘police brutality’ has been a recurring theme in the black discourse but america is as pro-police-brutality as ever.

Granted, there’s, as white people say, ‘more than one way to skin a cat,’ and I wouldn’t advise anyone without a death wish to misinterpret my message as pro-Columbine. I’m really saying,

3. Your placard protests are about as effective on them as their protests are on you.

If you ever looked at a ‘bluelivesmatter’ protest or a ‘alllivesmatter’ protest or a ‘we stand with you george zimmerman,’ you may have felt something or another, but bottom line is it didn’t really impact your convictions and it definitely didn’t incite you into any constructive actions. Why? Because it’s a protest. Protests have been bastardized into an ineffective showcase of signs, poses and calorie burning. The common manifestation isn’t at all what a protest is supposed to be. Just a joke that Black people somehow adopted but never ‘got.’

An effective protest is the fire squad watching your house burn down, the common occurrence of the police breaking into pro-Black activist homes and demanding a cease and desist, or the KKK burning a cross on your lawn. The reasons tie in with the fourth fact on this list:

4. The threat of violence backed with capacity can be as effective as the practice of violence.

Like the KKK burning a cross on your lawn, because you know who the KKK is and that its numbers are vast, even burning a cross can pass a message onto the person whose lawn has been desecrated.

Going back to the second fact on this list, to those who wrongfully find white children as innocent or unrelated to police brutality or war crimes, if a Black Organization even proportionately as dispersed but numbered as the KKK declared that unless certain demands were met, they would attack white schools (not precincts but schools); there would be negotiations and not a single child would need to be harmed. But if a single Black man said it, he’d either be taken for a fool or taken. Even if ten Black people said it, it could be interpreted as a joke. Like, if a child threatens a group of men, not one man flinches.

If Black people are in the business of making ‘threats,’ in order to negotiate, having the capacity to undertake that threat makes all the difference in the world. Because white people would attempt to have intelligence on a significant Black Organization (or BlacK Power) [i.e. infiltrators, informants, espionage], and if they can crunch the numbers and ‘neutralize the threat’ easily, they would and you can’t negotiate squat; but if they can not effectively neutralize without risking disaster, you’re sitting at the table. Which brings us to the final fact,

5. The Black man can’t do it alone; but Black men can.

Despite Rambo, Conan the Barbarian, Call of Duty, or whatever your particular fantasy is, one man can not defeat an army. But Armies can and do defeat Armies. If Black people will understand the Warfare that is being waged against them and white people will not be bluffed, if nothing else Black people need to understand that we have the better troops, pound-for-pound and neuron-for-neuron. We just have less troops and less technology; but organization can fix that. You must study how quickly whites (as police officers) respond to an alleged crime. Notice their patterns of having backup for their backup. And see how they number themselves to the threat (at minumum 3:1 as per KKK policy). Then ask yourself, how quick you can mobilize your people? And how much backup does your backup have?

You have a group organized to kill you and yours. To end Police Brutality, think of your children and who they are targeting. And while I do not promise that the Black man standing beside you may not be an enemy. Why does the white policeman feel so confident about the Black policeman standing beside him? You have so much. There are so many cities. So many opportunities. Black men need to organize and put, not just the police, but the KKK to shame. When we are there. We can go any route–any; and end at the destination we will.

What the Black man needs to understand is to Organize: a leader with an idea and men to execute it will make all the difference for Black people, as long as that idea follows the principles of Pan-African Nationalism which truly gets to the heart of police brutality aka race warfare and solving your prisoner’s problem.
