“Solon, solon, you greeks are perennial infants. Not a single greek is an Elder.” – Ancient African

white media recently went into an uproar after one of their compatriots, richard spencer, delivered a speech which ended in him either saying “Hail trump” or “Heil trump” but this prompted his audience to stand in response shouting “Heil trump” while emulating a nazi salute. Is nazi germany truly the best example of white culture from a white perspective? Genocidal, hated, opposed, destroyed: Possibly. Is it ironic when national americans emulate nazi germany—absolutely. Does richard spencer deliver a speech rife with inconsistencies and ignorance? Definitely. Is there something to learn? Not really.

richard spencer is considered an ‘intellectual’ of the alt-right (or alt-reich) and the appellation is fitting for its relativity. He’s not smart—but he’s not as dumb as his audience. He doesn’t come off much as ‘alt-right’ [he coined the term but there’s no ‘alternative’ laid out] in this speech as much as ‘anti-left’ and many ignorant people can find his anti-leftism agreeable. i.e. why are corporate ceos and latina maids in the same coalition? But naturally, his message is swamped with a misunderstanding of history and whiteness itself. If he’s as they say he is “The karl marx of the Alt-Right” and an “intellectual” for a widespread view, then naturally that view is more harmful to whites and white purism than it is helpful—even in a nationalist perspective.

The speech, for what it’s worth, is underrated by the white media spencer opposes. Up until it’s last of seven pages, it’s misguided, a-historical and ignorant, but it can understandably rile a misguided, a-historical and ignorant audience. In its last throws, however, he puts forward the idea that whites don’t exploit and every other group is worse than whites and it’s definitely misguided. He even, at one point, calls europeans ‘children of the sun,’ which begs the question of how little whites know of whites.

By the by, you can readily see that this speech was written and spoken by a certifiable fool, an admitted internet troll but a person his people raised to the status of icon nonetheless. It begs strongly, with all that the Black community has, why we have yet to make a parallel raise. Why the intelligent and qualified Umar Johnson, for instance, remains relatively obscure in our circles.

Critique of richard spencer’s “Heil trump” speech plus NPI 2016 Transcript
By Onitaset Kumat

I don’t think I’m alone in thinking how surreal this all is.
Of course, those of us on the Alt Right always took President-elect Donald J. Trump and his chances seriously. Unlike everyone else, we weren’t surprised, or at least not that surprised. We knew he could win. Many of us thought all along he would win. The mainstream media, or perhaps we should refer to them in the original German—Lugenpresse—never did.
This was the year when random shitlords on Twitter, anonymous podcast hosts, and dissidents working deep within the Beltway Right proved they objectively understood politics better than the “Republican strategists” and “political consultants” snarking at us every night on MSNBC. It’s not just that they are leftists or cucks. It’s not just that many are genuinely stupid. Indeed, one wonders if those people are people at all, or instead soulless Golems, animated by some dark power to repeat whatever talking points John Oliver said the night before.

Most of the speech goes on like this. It’s bizarre, to say the least, that he would propose that other people are ‘golems’ ‘animated by dark powers’ to ‘repeat’ what ‘john oliver’ said, but this is the voice of an ‘intellectual;’ just as trump is the voice of a ‘president.’ But note how this is anti-left, not so much an alternative to the ‘right’ or ‘alt-right.’

But even though we always took Trump seriously, there was still a moment of unreality – or perhaps too painfully intense reality – when the state of Pennsylvania was called for Donald Trump, the moment when we knew Kek had smiled upon us, that meme magic was real. And though these terms are used half-jokingly, they represent something truly important–the victory of will. We willed Donald Trump into office, made this dream into reality. If you will it, it is no dream, a quote I’m sure our friends at the Anti-Defamation League know well. And this is only the beginning.
After all, what does it mean, to bring your dreams into reality? Dreams are chaotic and hard to understand. They can be self-contradictory and confusing. But at some level, they represent our deepest yearning, our desire to make the impossible real. As TE Lawrence wrote, we’re aren’t the dreamers of the Night, whose dreams are mere vanity. We are the “Dreamers of the Day,” those who do not want our visions or even our fantasies to be escapes from reality. We want them to be the reality.
In a culture which offers video games, endless entertainment, drugs, alcohol, porn, sports, and a thousand other distractions to convince us of another reality, we want to cut all of that away. We demand to live in the world we imagine.
Today, there is an effort by the humiliated mainstream, those commissars who are lashing out against us and who are whipping up the mobs outside this very building, to push back against us. Despite winning the election fairly, despite winning in the face of near unanimous opposition from the mainstream media, despite destroying both the Republican and Democratic establishments, there is a concerted push to deny the new president-elect legitimacy. It’s especially amusing considering the indignant whining we heard only two weeks ago about how unconscionable it was that Donald Trump was supposedly going to refuse to accept the election results and how he was going to unleash his supporters into the streets. Really, who can take these people seriously ever again?

He continues in an anti-left rant, but it’s worth noting that though trump won over clinton, his victory was marginal in crucial states and less to do with ‘the will’ of his followers and more to do with the setup of the system and the low voter turnout because of it. It’s an exaggeration to account trump’s victory exclusively to a mass movement especially as the masses didn’t even vote. This election did see new voters for trump and new converts for trump and that was a decisive factor; but new voters and converts weren’t the majority—down-ballot republicans were. Obviously the cesspool of conspiracy theories, misinformation and fake news played a huge roll in his election; but is conning the population and putting an incomparably overt self-serving conman into a position of power really something to brag about?

In the later part of the campaign, Peter Thiel, one of the few people of wealth and status who endorsed Trump, talked about America as a “normal” country, a country with a functional government not constantly at war with the rest of the world. This was the promise of Trump to many of his supporters. And yet, for the cultural Left and its propagandists in the controlled media, then main argument we here today, if you can call it an argument, is that Trump should not be “normalized.” This of course begs the question–what is normal today?
In the Current Year, late-night comedians don’t tell jokes, but give us lectures on what we should not be allowed to laugh at. Worn-out celebrities like Madonna, who have based their entire lives into transforming themselves into clumsy symbols of sexuality and materialism, claim to be offended by the “indecency” of Donald Trump. Journalists don’t fight for free speech, but lead the charge to restrict it. In the Current Year, the state wars against the nation, rather than protecting it.
What is the state of the world? What is this status quo that our “normal” President, Barack Hussein Obama, the community organizer from Chicago, is now shilling for on his last foreign tour?

Obviously, no comment necessary. This person continues an anti-left tirade and even drags white celebrities in for what he supposes is poignant commentary. Note, however, that up to this point there is no ‘alternative’ vision laid out. Just, so far, that madonna shouldn’t talk ‘decency.’ Which is a poorman’s remark but not necessarily something worth going in depth on.

Let’s look at what our government does. The bulk of the threats we face, especially the Islamic State or Muslim terrorists operating within our own societies, have been enabled by our own government. Massive armies, huge navies, terrifying weapons which could destroy the whole world over and are subsidized at ruinous cost, are actually used to further policies which make all of us less safe.

So, here’s a bit of expected confusion. The muslim population in america is not remotely the bulk of the threat white people in america face, unless, maybe, if you discount other white people. Yet, the massive armies, huge navies, terrifying weapons that can destroy the world over—are, for what it’s worth, what makes white people safer—not less safe. This man probably lost the white establishment at this point in his speech. Say what you will about madonna, but to propose a white disarmament is naive—if you don’t understand who white people are. It’s true, the cost of being armed is ruinous. But it’s only ruinous if you fail to realize that white people are a people who are ruining the planet. spencer will later reveal that he thinks white people are alright. And therein lies the problem in his logic. It’s like, imagine nazi germany with an inferior army, navy or weapons to another state… oh that happened. This is what passes as an intellectual. A soi-disant dreamer.

In the Europe defended by American armies, refugees who commit horrific crimes are set free, but citizens who criticize them are arrested. Meanwhile, at home, the protection of the borders, the primary–and to some libertarians, the only national security responsibility of the government–is ignored.
Indeed, Western governments go out of their way to seek out the most dysfunctional immigrants possible and relocate them at taxpayer expense. The “non-government” organizations who support this colonization effort are given huge amounts of money to make their own communities worse. Is this “normal?” Would the Founding Fathers who created those “American ideals” we hear so much about think this is ok?

Here’s another misunderstanding on the part of this ‘intellectual,’ who if nothing else demonstrates that the ‘alt-right’ isn’t intelligent or self-interested. spencer will later say whites do not exploit other groups, but here he admits to one of the mechanism the government uses to exploit other groups. For instance, despite this so-called wave of immigrants, how is it that the government remains entirely white? What’s more, how is it that the number of non-white immigrants or domestics of wealth remain marginal? And is it that immigrants are even in many of the white communities of america? Are they only here to behave and work?
It’s like spencer refuses to read between the lines. This is likely why other whites reject his superficial understanding of history.

Let’s look at the culture.
In the Current Year, one’s career can be ruined and life destroyed if you express anything other than admiration for a man who wants to cut off his genitals and say he’s a woman.
In the Current Year, we are told the great threat to our democracy is “fake news” – and then hear breathless accounts, backed little no evidence, that Breitbart.com is “White Nationalist.”
In the Current Year, a white who takes pride in his ancestors’ accomplishments is evil, but a white who refuses to accept guilt for his ancestors’ sins is also evil.
In the Current Year, white families work their whole lives to send their children to universities where they will be told how despicable they are.
In the Current Year, the powerful lecture the powerless about how they don’t recognize their own “privilege.”
In the Current Year, a wealthy Jewish celebrity bragging about the “end of white men” is “speaking truth to power.’
In the Current Year, if you are physically strong, you are fragile. Black is beautiful, but whiteness is toxic. Government doesn’t stop crime, but subsidizes it. “White Privilege” is real but race and sex are just constructs. And if facts are too disturbing, you can always retreat into the ‘safe space’ of box juice, teddy bears, and endless empathy where realty doesn’t matter anymore.

This is just anti-left dribble with an ahistorical tinge. I understand a Black person being opposed to self-mutilation and gender confusion, but a white purist shouldn’t have the same concern. white culture always had an undercurrent of gender confusion. The other comments are just dribble and maybe too long on the internet. “Get a life” is enough of a commentary to the sort who say this nonsense. Not to say it’s entirely wrong—but it’s certainly a selective strawman.

Today, neurotics and degenerates are presented to us as heroes. Beauty is openly denigrated as an offense against equality. And we are ruled by a government which, despite confiscating an outrageous amount of our wealth, can’t fulfill its basic responsibilities defending a people and territory.
This is a basic-bitch argument, but the pre-made signs of those leading the protests against Trump, probably some of those outside this building, come from some of the most extreme Communist groups in the country, the most murderous ideological force in history. It feels almost embarrassing to make this argument, because we know no one will take it seriously. Yet this very day breathless editorials screech that random Internet comments on websites the mainstream media don’t like mean Donald Trump shouldn’t appoint this or that person to his staff.

A basic-bitch argument is really the entirety of this ‘speech.’ Very basic, very bitchy (against the left) and sort of an argument against a strawman.

We need to remind ourselves of these things. None of this is natural. None of this is “normal.” This is a sick, disgusting, society, run by the corrupt, defended by hysterics, drunk on self-hatred and degeneracy. We invade the world and frantically invite entire populations who despise us. We subsidize people and institutions who make our lives worse just by the sheer fact of their existence. We run up deficits and pretend the laws of history simply don’t apply to us because of “American Exceptionalism.”
This cannot go on any longer. And it won’t.
At some level, we demand the impossible. Even those half-joking memes about Donald Trump as God-Emperor or as the progenitor of some glorious Imperium testify to the yearning for something more. Yes, we should insist on our dreams – on the conquest of space, on the development of revolutionary technology, for a humanity that is greater than we are today, for a race that travels forever on the upward path.
But at another level, what we want is something normal, something almost prosaic maybe even boring.
Why is something as simple as starting a family, owning a house, and leaving a legacy to your children seen as an almost impossible dream for so many Americans? Why must there be two incomes for a family simply to break even? Why is it impossible to build a real civic society because the whim of a federal bureaucrat or a Social Justice Warrior can impose Section 8 housing, refugee resettlement, or some other population transfer scheme deliberately designed to break apart functional white communities?

Naturally, spencer here goes into an awkward unwitting critique on white people. i.e. he says this society is disgusting and run by the corrupt and is drunk on self-hatred and degeneracy. But he’s talking about white people. He says that white people invade the world. Then he adds that white people invite other populations who despise whites (note that he doesn’t say—they despise us because we invade them.) But he does go on to blame other people and institutions. Never mind that the problems he lays out for white people—i.e. the demand for two incomes, the inability to own a home, the failure to leave legacies—are, if true for anyone, the fault of other white people—and definitely this white government. I get that Obama may represent to a handful of white fools “Black government,” but come on—the Senate is 100% white, the Congress is a great deal white, the State Legislatures and State Governors are hugely white, the police, the judges, the banks, white, the schools, the teachers, the federal bureaucrats and the SJW, white. So who is spencer really railing against? I mean—the white influence on laws, the economy and different systems in place are undeniably overwhelming. And it’s an imaginative fool who would say muslims, non-white jews or Africans are the real culprits for a, supposed, failure for whites to have functional communities. Mayhap its other whites who bring the dysfunction to whites? Mayhap whites are a dysfunctional people?

Why do institutions of higher learning turn out graduates who are personally and emotionally broken, as well as ignorant? Even those who can build something in this environment spend the money they earn to isolate themselves from all that vibrancy they feel the need to defend publicly.
It’s not just that this society makes it impossible for us collectively to accomplish great things. It’s that collectively, we can’t even accomplish small things anymore. We take for granted our culture is filth, that the mass transit won’t work, that the cities are rotted out from within, that the great art and architecture of the West has all essentially been made. We collectively know that our country’s best days are behind it.

spencer relays this idea that whites are personally and emotionally broken as well as ignorant and incapable of accomplishing even small things collectively. He even raises their mass transit, their cities, and their current art and architecture as evidence. He sees this; but doesn’t go to the conclusion that perhaps whites are the problem—genetically. For even when you think about it—what did whites collectively and exclusively build? What did the best days look like for white people? Exploitation? Mostly.

That was the ur-myth that animated the Trump campaign. To say “Make America Great Again” is both radically pessimistic and boyishly optimistic at the same time. It is an admission America is not what it once was, that it is no longer that nation capable of achieving what it once did. Even liberals at some level know this, as they occasionally pay wistful tributes to the early 1960s America of the moon race and the middle class lifestyle, while conveniently forgetting that American society was 90% white at the time.

Just a quick idea to note, america being 90% white isn’t a state-by-state reference. The South, for instance, had a different percentage; as did cities.

Yet MAGA is also forward looking. This idea that we can do this, that America can be what it was, that this idealized past can be restored. More than that, that it can reach new heights, be “greater than ever before,” as President-elect Trump put it. We’re going to win so much, we’re going to get tired of it. This is the new “normal” we are promised, an America of greatness, but also of functional communities and the possibility of a satisfying life for ordinary people.
Contrast MAGA with Marco Rubio’s “For a New American Century,” literally cribbed from the neocon think tank that planned the Iraq war. Contrast this with Hillary Clinton’s poll-tested “Stronger Together.” What does this even mean? Her coalition was made up of mutually hostile tribes, only united because of their hatred for what Peter Brimelow called the “historic American nation,” which is to say, us.
In the last week of the campaign, Trump was hosting several rallies a day, including one near here in Northern Virginia. A friend who was there told me he was several hours late but no one wanted to leave. But it became so late that small children – there were many families at these rallies – started falling asleep. Parents actually put coats on the ground to form a kind of bed for the children to sleep, and surrounded them to guard the sleeping youngsters. There was this kind of effortless high-trust environment you saw at these rallies, an entire people awakening to their own existence – and realizing not just that they exist and have an identity, but that they are strong.

His use of small children sleeping at a rally is another selective observation. One that could be made anywhere else, really. Even a football game. white people trusting each other, however, is an anomaly. And in fact, not what’s displayed here. It’s not ‘trust’ but the fact that it’s a public, highly monitored rally that makes this functional. “Trust” would be handing your keys to a fellow rally goer and having them drive your kid to your home. That’s not the same as forming a circle around children sleeping on coats. “Standing guard” isn’t trust. It’s actually what you do when distrusting. But, granted, there’s nothing wrong with distrusting white people.

Contrast that to the Hillary constituency. The black political machines and the guilt ridden liberal suburbanites who work their entire lives to move away from them. The left wing activists who think they are fighting the System by working for the federal government. The multinational CEO’s and the Latinos they’ve imported to clean their houses and cut their lawns. “Stronger together?” There are no two parts of this coalition who could even be in the same room together for any length of time.

Many people without a political education would consider this point flawless. But then again, it isn’t. No one group is 50% of america’s population, ergo they form a coalition to outpopulate the rest of america. That’s it. No, they wouldn’t be in the same room together. But that’s not the point of political coalitions.
Interestingly, what’s known about nazi germany and hitler’s ascent is the lack of political coalitions by other populations, such that hitler mobilized a plurality and won.
Personally, I recognize that this is a white nation, so I’m not personally fond of political coalitions, but then again political coalitions aren’t necessarily something to be fond of—it’s a coalition to outpopulate and thus gain the reigns of power.
One can easily do the same comparison with the right and its climiate deniers, its anti-homosexuals, it’s pro-life, it’s CEOs, it’s rural idiots, its white nationalists, it’s alt-rights, it’s confederate sympathizers and its state’s rights. It too is a loose collective of people who truly have no shared interests. But it’s politics and it’s that loose cohesion that won trump a presidency.

And this contradiction goes to the heart of the Left. The Left couldn’t decide this year whether America was already great or whether it was never great. Is America some noble multiracial experiment that belongs to everyone and to no one, or is it the product of conquest and settlement by mean ol’ racist Europeans?
Is it a beacon of hope to the rest of the world or an enemy to be destroyed? Because, as the outgoing President would say, let’s be “clear” – despite these supposedly egalitarian “values,” America was, until this past generation, a White country, designed for ourselves and our posterity.
It is our creation, it is our inheritance, and it belongs to us.

Ok, so now is where his speech takes a turn. But this is actually a reasonable statement. america is a nation designed for whites.

The Alt Right is not just an alternative to the moribund “conservative movement,” that Beltway Right of direct mail scam artists and shills whose eternal “values” constantly trail the Left’s vanguard by a dozen years. It’s an alternative to a whole system of lies.
What are we fighting for is a “new normal,” a moral consensus we insist upon.
Donald Trump is a step towards this new normal. But even he is deeply compromised by the perversions that define this decadent society. Donald Trump warred against segregated establishments. He supports affirmative action, or put more bluntly, state-sponsored discrimination against whites. He will be perhaps the most pro-Zionist president ever put into office, turning a blind eye to continued Jewish settlement in the Palestinian territories. He opposes the Iran nuclear deal, which, we should admit, isn’t exactly that bad. He has, let us remember, left the door open for some kind of amnesty at some future date, talking about keeping “the good ones” in the country.

Just a quick interjection, “zionism” as a movement was empowered by nazi germany.

The hysteria surrounding his election doesn’t show that he is extreme, but it shows how unhinged the press and the chattering classes have become. We are told of a massive rush of hate crimes against nonwhites by evil racists emboldened by Trump’s victory. Amazingly, these crimes never seen to be captured on video. That violence which does exist seems to consist of direct physical attacks against Trump supporters. And even when this is captured on video, CNN political commentator and former press secretary for Bernie Sanders can smirk, “oh my goodness, poor white people.”
What we see is that the liberal hegemony which governs this society will not permit any reform, even the kinds of moderate reforms which could salvage the whole System. The undercurrent of almost all press coverage in the days since Trump’s ascendency is that white people should not be permitted to vote. What’s more, the news should be censored to ensure that people are only given the “correct” viewpoints.
Far from reflecting on why they lost or extending even a modicum of empathy towards European-Americans, the press has clearly decided to double down and wage war against both the legitimacy of Trump and the continued existence of White America.
But they are really opening the door for us.

This us versus them, it needs to be repeated, is between different white groups. What he calls the liberal media, for instance, are different white people, white reporting, and white commentators. This is partially why he doesn’t name them. This is a classical tactic by white people against white people themselves. spencer’s problem is other white people. He just doesn’t say it. And his audience isn’t clever enough to note it. But notice that throughout this entire speech, he’s only named sanders, clinton, trump and rubio—all white people.

You can imagine, hypothetically, some situation where a President Trump or whoever slaps some ramshackle America together and it limps along for a few more decades . . . where the boot is lifted off the neck of white America just long enough to keep the whole thing going. Yet the Left can’t permit that. Environmentalism, workers’ rights, income inequality, mass transit, whatever stated values it supposedly has are thrown out in order to pursue a remarkably crude and simplistic anti-white hatred that is driving it all.
And even more than during the election itself, the mask has been ripped off since Trump’s election. SJW’s always project and the American Left is driven by anti-white hatred – full stop. It has no other goals, no aspirations, nothing to look to. It is a nullity. And we have nothing in common with these people.

Again, it’s ironic that a white person complains about anti-whiteness while railing against the machinations and ideas of other whites—who are practicing their whiteness. As their socrates said, white people aren’t clever.

It is different for us. Race is real … but in some sense, whiteness really is a social construct. Think of the concepts that are now designated “problematic” and associated with whiteness — power, strength, beauty, agency, accomplishment. Whites do and other groups don’t. In the banality of normal life and in our most outlandish dreams, in both our Narrative and theirs, to be white is to be a striver, a crusader, an explorer and a conqueror. We build, we produce, we go upward.
And we recognize the central lie of American race relations. We don’t exploit other groups. We don’t gain anything from their presence. They need us, and not the other way around.

So here’s where his turn goes. Now it’s hard to say that a conqueror doesn’t exploit.–or a conqueror doesn’t gain anything from other groups. Or that a people would need a conqueror. Still such is his imagination.
It’s also an imagination that the narrative of whites matches the narrative of non-whites. Although, this narrative, is ironically perpetrated from the very white people he supposedly opposes. This man is all sorts of misinformed, but I’m sure the learned reader can distinguish this.

Whiteness, or, rather, identity, is being forced on the deracinated, consumerist Last Man that was the European-American. No one is going to be permitted to escape this process. Great historical changes are imminent when people are forced into a binary choice – fight or flee, join or die, resist … or cuck.
That is the position of white people. Two weeks ago, I might the have said the election of Donald Trump would actually lessen the pressure on white Americans. But today it’s clear his election is only intensifying the storm of hatred and hysteria being directed against us.
As Europeans, we are, uniquely, at the center of history. We are, as Hegel recognized, the concept of world history. No one will honor us for losing gracefully. No one mourns the great crimes committed against us. For us, it is conquer or die. This is a unique burden for the white man, that our fate is entirely in our hands. And it is appropriate because within us, within the very blood in our veins as children of the sun lies the potential for greatness.

Dribble, naturally. It’s awkward that he’d name white people children of the sun. But the conquer or die idea doesn’t even remotely fit into what his speech was earlier about. Before he denounced weapons, he didn’t like invasions, he promoted building, but now he says conquest is what the white man ought to do. And it’s an accurate point. white people do conquest. But it’s the opposite of his earlier argumentation. The inconsistency is palpable.

That is the great struggle we are called to. We were not meant to live in shame and weakness and disgrace. We were not meant to beg for moral validation from some of the most despicable creatures to pollute the soil of this planet. We were meant to overcome–overcome all of it. Because that’s natural for us.

It’s hard to understand who he means by despicable creatures—but the most accurate description would be white people—as white people are the main pollutants of the planet. But that’s the oddity of a so-called intellectual white person.

Because for us, as Europeans, it’s only normal again, when we are great again.
Hail Trump. Hail our people. Hail victory.

Meh. Reader, you decide, what to think. To me, intellectual is an overstatement and coherent is another.

“The Black man and his BlackBerry.” – Anonymous

A few years back I heard a brother make the above remark. We laughed. How can a grown man be addicted to a non-essential object like a phone? In 2016, going on 2017, phones are no laughing matter. Organizing has been transformed. When once mailing out invitations and meeting in a home may have sufficed; that angle doesn’t make the cut today. Instead, the Black man and the Black woman are now inseparable from their Androids and Iphones. Yet for the most part, these devices are heavily monitored and deeply politicized by the wrong people.

We are in the Age of the Phone. Yet despite the length of this age, the number of African beneficiaries, particularly Pan-African Nationalist African beneficiaries, has yet to become significant. We’re understandably not doing the heavy work like manufacturing phones, setting up satellites, or constructing towers. But we’re also not doing the light work, like repairing phones or even programming Apps.

Well, although late, Onitaset is playing with the idea of creating Apps. Here’s what I developed so far,

The African Proverbs Game App
By Onitaset Kumat

The above is a preview of what the game looked like a month ago.  It’s actually much wider than a typical phone screen, so it had to be modified.  But that’s what it looked like on a computer.

That’s what it looked like on a phone.  There was a lot of bugs between the transfer from computer to android.  But I got it to work and it works great.  I’m interested in modifying it pretty heavily.  So that the game doesn’t load right away and even so that the player isn’t expected to fill out all 200+ proverbs at once [maybe limit it to 20 at a time.]  But so far, that’s the state of the app.

I’m not likely to put it on Iphone anytime soon–since Iphone is way more expensive.  But hopefully, when the apps are published on android [if they are published at all] they can generate enough income to finance an expansion onto the Iphone and then some.

Also, if anyone is interested in learning this type of programming–namely Python and Kivy–let me know in the comments.

My other app ideas–assuming this one finishes–may involve allowing your phone to remind you to exercise, give you a daily proverb, encourage you to read and also give you a daily mission.  We are just getting started.

Let me know what you guys think.  Also let me know what you think can work economically.  Like what kind of app you want to see or what kind of app you would buy.  Also what are your opinion on ads?

Abibifahodie!

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!
