“What is the condition of Colored people whom you know in regard to Good Manners, Sound Morals, Habits of Cleanliness, Personal Honesty, Home Life, Rearing of Children, Wholesome amusement for young people and Caring for old people.”W.E.B. Du Bois

One of the most powerful tactics the colonialist or enslaver had at his disposal was the disassociation of the African Man or Woman from the African Child. When this was executed, the deterioration of the African Family and therefore the African Community was only a matter of a generation’s passing, with the exception of exceptional conditions. It has been over a century since W.E.B. Du Bois asked what we are doing for our young, and the answers he received then mirror the answers of today: In summary, not enough! I had written a song for African Children but so too has the exceptional Baba Wakili O. Mlimwengu, President of the UNIA’s Brooklyn Division 431. It gives me great honor to share this wonderful song with you.

Meritmentchu: A Pan-African Nationalist Text Adventure

“Every man must act in the rhythm of his time … such is wisdom.” — African Proverb

In a previous article, I had written on African Games for African Self-Determination and Intellect. There I elaborated on the various games played in Africa, be they Mancala, Yote, Senet, Magic Square or even Chess. Since then I have endeavored to create my own game.

This one is a text adventure. It takes place in the future where Afuraka (Africa) is a confederacy of four superstates: Zambezi, Kongo, Niger and Nile. The game follows the protagonist (you) from his or her birth to, hopefully, his or her becoming Meritmentchu (the beloved of Mentchu) or the greatest Warrior in Afuraka. It was written in Python and the code is over 2,700 lines long (all written by me.) As of April 18th, 2015 the game is only a demo. If there is considerable support, I can make the full game.

To play the demo, just download it, then unzip it, open the folder and click on Meritmentchu.

Installtion Instructions: Download the game. Unzip it. Open Folder. Click on Meritmentchu.

Tips: Most choices you make impact your attributes or succeed or fail based on your attributes. Try to get different attributes and try different choices.

Rewards: At the demos completion, you have an opportunity to get the whole source code.

Is it hard to learn Python?

It’s a pretty straightforward programming language.

Why didn’t you make a graphical game?

Graphics are harder to do alone if you are not a graphic artist. Plus, unless you are really graphically gifted, graphics more limit a story than enhance it. E.g. to tell a story of a man wrestling a lion with lionesses laughing, you have to draw out each wrestling scene and each part of the lioness laughing, and to tell the story of a baboon instructing a war game, you have to draw out the whole scene and its rich diversity. Meanwhile in non-graphical games, you can just describe the scene and you are done.

If I am new to programming, what kind of game can I hope to program?

If you are familiar with Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo and even Playstation, those are the kind of games you could program. It would take a lot of graphical artwork, but if you can manage that, the programming is very straightforward and easy.

Have you ever played a MUD?

Of course. I do not yet know how to program online games; but that’s the kind of game I first aimed to create. This text adventure genre I find to be more rich in story.

What else are you working on?

Maybe another text game, maybe a platformer, maybe a traditional African game. It may take me a while though.

The Man Who Rapes Men in Prison — A Play

“The function of Propaganda is to identify the target’s forces and enemies.” — Onitaset Kumat

When it comes to Propaganda, the Caucasian is beatable but nearly unchallenged. This play is a vocal challenge against his agenda. We need to be clear on who among our people are our viable forces and who aren’t. Are same-sex predators for the African Family or are so-called homosexuals agents of African confusion and European Culture? I do not doubt that this is a sensitive subject in the West, where Africans will not wince at the repeated utterance of ‘Nigger’ but will feel uneasy whenever one says the word ‘Faggot.’ However Martin Luther King, Jr. had said “Cowardice asks the question: is it safe? Expediency asks the question: is it political? Vanity asks the question: is it popular? But conscience asks the question: is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor political, nor popular – but one must take it simply because it is right,” and I tend to agree. We as a Race will not excel if we hide behind Cowardice, Expediency or Vanity. If any Organizer can not announce to the world that the Caucasian is your enemy and Homosexuality is exclusive to the Caucasian’s culture, then that Organizer is unfit to Organize you. And if you understand the wholesale rape in prisons fostered by Caucasian oppression and the wholesale homosexualization of African men and women not yet in prison or dead, but you still feel repulsed by any ‘anti-homosexual rhetoric’ then I wish you better understanding in the years to come. However for now I will make it clear. We can not afford to sacrifice our traditional Family structures for a pat on the head regarding our ‘tolerance.’ A people should never be ‘tolerant’ of their destruction.

The Man Who Rapes Men in Prison — A Play
By Onitaset Kumat

Guru: You really quiet for a nigger locked up. (Pause). Nigger why you don’t talk? (Pause) Nigger!
Amipon: (To himself) I’m not a nigger.
Guru: What you say?
Amipon: I said I am not a nigger.
Guru: Well you look like a nigger.
Amipon: Well alright buddy.
Guru: (Pause) Can’t believe a nigger said he ain’t a nigger. (Pause) Hey nigger how you figure you ain’t a nigger?
Amipon: My name is ‘Amipon,’ not nigger.
Guru: Oh, you funny, Amipon. (Pause) They call me ‘Guru.’ (Pause) On the count of me reading all the books here.
Amipon: Here? There are no books here.
Guru: You are funny. In the library.
Amipon: Is there a library here?
Guru: Every prison has a library. Well every prison I have been to.
Amipon: How long have you been in prisons?
Guru: Twelve years now.
Amipon: I see.
Guru: You should check out the library. Good books in there.
Amipon: I do not plan to stay that long.
Guru: (Loud Laughter) Nigger how long they give you?
Amipon: Crackers don’t give me anything, I create.
Guru: Nigger, you in prison ain’t you? How long they say?
Amipon: They said indefinite, no time limit, multiple life sentences, but I never believe a word a cracker says.
Guru: Nigger, you in prison ain’t you? What’s there not to believe? Think Whitey going to just free you?
Amipon: No, I never look at crackers for my liberation. No, I know our people are going to free me.
Guru: You funny. What they charge you with? Insanity? Being too funny? Being ridiculous?
Amipon: Man, shut up!
Guru: (Getting up) What you say nigger?!?
Amipon: I said shut up. I am not afraid of you.
Guru: Nigger you soon will be. Keep up your funny talk.
Amipon: “The hunter in pursuit of an elephant does not stop to throw stones at birds.”
Guru: Nigger I oughtta–
Warden (off-stage): Be quiet in there!
Amipon: You talk so big to me, but you are silent when your oppressor speaks. (Pause) Really silent.
Guru: You’ll learn.
Amipon: I doubt it.
Guru: Whatever man. (Pause) What they got you in here for?
Amipon: The book: Murder, Conspiracy to Murder, Inciting a Riot, the book.
Guru: So you are a murderer?
Amipon: I murder the Whites in Black minds, so yeah.
Guru: Nigger was you a poet?
Amipon: I’m just an African in America.
Guru: Nigger, you funny. (Pause) But we going to have to get serious now. I’mma need you to come suck my dick.
Amipon: I beg your pardon?
Guru: Nigger you in prison now, I ain’t have a cellmate in a while, you a small looking Nigger, I’mma need you to come suck my dick.
Amipon: You must be out of your African mind.
Guru: Well I’m about to beat your African ass.
(They fight: Amipon is victorious.)
Amipon (agitated): You stupid fool. You some kind of faggot?
Guru: (Whimpers unintelligibly to self)
Amipon: Answer me! You some kind of faggot?
Guru: I ain’t no faggot.
Amipon: So what was that?
Guru: Nigger–
Amipon: Don’t you call me a ‘nigger’ again.
Guru: Amipon, this is prison.
Amipon: What you trying to say?
Guru: I didn’t like when I was raped, but neither did my rapist, but ni–Amipon this is prison.
Amipon: So someone rapes you and you don’t kill him?
Guru: You don’t get it.
Amipon: Instead you, yourself become a rapist?
Guru: You don’t get it.
Amipon: Sound like you are just a faggot.
Guru: I’m not a faggot man.
Amipon: Then you are just a punk.
Guru: (Whimpers unintelligibly to self)
Amipon: I am not worried about your ‘gang’ here, I’m not even staying here.
Guru: You can kick my ass, but you ain’t doing shit to the guards.
Amipon: Let me worry about that. (Pause) Guru, ha. Why am I not surprised a fool would be named ‘Guru?’
Guru: I’m not a fool.
Amipon (no longer agitated): How you figure?
Guru: I read every book in this library, I know everything that goes on here, I am not a fool.
Amipon: Every book crackers approved for a prison? Everything that goes on in a prison? Man that’s not impressive and it’s not even true. You read every book? What do the prison logs say? Who are their personnel, what are their shifts, how much do they get paid? Every book! And everything that goes on in this one little institution? Yeah sure. If you knew that and didn’t find out how to escape for twelve years, then you are a fool.
Guru: (standing up) Ni–
Amipon: Don’t get beat again!
Guru: (sitting down) (Whimpers unintelligibly to self)
Amipon: You know what makes you a real fool? You are a Whitened man and you don’t even know it. (Pause) Black as you are, you’ve been Whitened in these walls. You turned White and became a faggot rapist and I bet you, you worship Whites, too.
Guru: I only worship God.
Amipon: ‘God’ is what Crackers gave you. ‘God’ is not Olodumare, Nyame, or Amen, ‘God’ is what the Cracker gave you to worship Crackers.
Guru: You can’t talk about a man’s God.
Amipon: You ain’t a man. You a punk faggot. Besides, I defer to no Cracker God. No Caucasian!
Guru: I see why they locked you up.
Amipon: Well I am getting out of here, punk.
Guru: You ain’t going nowhere!
Amipon: I will. How you let this Cracker reduce you so much?
Guru: What are you talking about? I ain’t never been shit anyway.
Amipon: You have been a lot before. You have been a Healer, a Hunter, a Protector, an African! You have been a lot before! But now you are you. Reduced. You don’t heal. You don’t hunt. You don’t protect. You have been reduced. And you let the Cracker reduce you!
Guru: Man.
Amipon: You’ve been something before, but you ain’t much now. You’ve been reduced. (Pause) You ever thought of that man? How this Cracker got you preying after your Brothers but praying over Crackers? Have you ever thought about that man? How you make your Brothers worthless pieces of meat for you to nut; but Crackers are your ‘almighty?’ Have you ever thought of this man? Guru? Imhotep! You fool! You ain’t never been a faggot before this White man trapped you in this cage; you ever thought of that African! When a beast is caged, it adopts the culture imposed upon it. This White man reduced you to a beast. You adopted his culture. You adopted his faggot ways. You became a punk. (Pause) The weakening of the Black race. (Pause) You lived this life a boy. You never became a man did you? This Cracker! You let him change you–into a confused fool–you let him change you!
Guru: You don’t understand.
Amipon: No you don’t. (Pause) I’m getting out today. Because I ain’t never been no punk. (Pause) You a prisoner of war because you ain’t had no sense to prepare for war. But me I’m getting out today.
Warden (off-stage): Lock everything down. There were explosions in sector C.
Guru: Somethings happening.
Amipon: No shit Imhotep!
Warden (off-stage): Everyone calm down, everything is under control!
Amipon: On the outside, fools say faggot ways is natural.
Guru: Man . . . something is happening!
Amipon: Faggot ways are natural with crackers. That’s no doubt.
Guru: You hearing this rumble?
Warden (off-stage): Secure the prisoners!
Amipon: But Brothers, they were never faggots on the outside but this changed them.
Guru: You hearing this?
Warden (off-stage): I need back-up here now. We’re being overwhelmed! Back-up! Back-up!
Amipon: This intense concentration of cracker ways, cracker supervision, cracker culture transformed them.
Warden (off-stage): Oh my God!
Amipon: This is the White man’s plan, the weakening of the African race It’s global; not limited by prison walls.
Warden (off-stage): Retreat!
Guru: They are retreating! Black men are fighting and killing and winning, what is this?
Amipon: Too many punks in our race.
Guru: Not these guys! Who are these guys!
Amipon: Those are my brother warriors. (To others) Guys let me out! (Gets released from cell)
Guru: What the? Can you take me?
Amipon: You must be out of your African mind. You know damn well you don’t want freedom. If you wanted it, you’d have warriors coming for you.
Guru: It’s not that easy.
Amipon: I did it. And I didn’t even read every book they gave me. (Laugh) The gate is open. Do what you will. Shem ee em Hotep.
Warden (off-stage): It’s over. We won! What was all that about? Anyone missing? (Pause) Hey Guru! Close your celldoor! Where’s Amipon? Guru!!! I need back-up Amipon is missing. Guru is free and unresponsive. Guru where is Amipon?
Guru: (To Himself) I’m a Man! I don’t worship Crackers. They locked me away for 12 years, limited me, tortured me, REDUCED ME. I’m a Man! A Man!
Warden (on-stage): Back up, I need back-up!
Guru (To Himself) I can run out of this cage, I’m free. Free by my Brothers and Sisters, from 12-years of chains, no 32-years of chains.
Warden (gun fixed on Guru): Guru, where is Amipon? I’m warning you Guru!
Guru (To Himself): I can run. I am free. A man would fight his enemy to his last breath. They’ll shoot me, but I’ll be a free man. I can run. I can fight.
Warden (gun fixed on Guru): Guru, what are you thinking?
Guru (To Himself): A man would run; ain’t I a man?
Warden (gun fixed on Guru): Guru what are you doing, we’ll shoot! (Pause) Guru! Guru! (Pause)
Guru: I think Amipon ran that way.
Warden (gun down): Good boy.

“No Mother has fell further than Africa” — A Poem by Onitaset Kumat

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

“Describe Africa as though she were a person and explain what kind of friend you are to her.” — Onitaset Kumat

In my revolutionary circle, I asked a similar question to which each of us confided our differing relationship with Mother Africa.  ‘What if she were a Sister? ‘ I specifically wondered and I personally articulated the disappointment I have in myself, that this brutalized, raped, and humiliated Sister has a weak ally in me.  An ally whom, by circumstance (even if only by necessity), is misorganized by her brutalizer, rapist and humiliator to sustain his abuses.  I grant that as an Organizer of African Revolutionaries, I am at least an ally of Africa, yet given how few and far between Organizers and Revolutionaries are in the African Community at home or abroad, I can see how if nothing else, Africa has a certain sadness to her.  This poem portrays Africa as a Mother and Africans as her children.  In this depiction I can’t help but express,

No Mother has fell further than Africa
By Onitaset Kumat

No Mother has fell further than Africa
She was once the most titled in the World,
She had ruled over the Nile, the Niger and the Kongo,
But now all those titles are destroyed

No Mother has fell further than Africa
Her influence once spanned across the Globe,
Her children have honored her everywhere they were,
But now they don’t regard her as their own

No Mother has fell further than Africa
She was once adorned with diamonds and gold,
She had treasuries in abundance and charity galore,
But now she sits impoverished and alone

No Mother has fell further than Africa
She once had children who stood tall and blameless,
It was they who brought the Earth in to Civilization,
But now her children are enslaved and nameless

No Mother has fell further than Africa
It was she whom the Ntchru first conceived,
In return she taught her children true Knowledge of Self,
But now her children are confused and deceived

No Mother has fell further than Africa
She once had the most revered melanin on Earth,
Within her was the likeness of the Universe,
But now her children see that darkness as a curse

No Mother has fell further than Africa,
She was once the seat of Balance and Maat,
She held Nature in Harmony and the Cosmos in Rhythm,
But now Esfet rules over her lot

No Mother has fell further than Africa,
For she once commanded the greatest army in the land
The warriors who maintained her as the Queen-Mother of Queen-Mothers
But now they watch as she is consumed by sand and man

No Mother has fell further

The Basis for a Four-Year Pan-African Nationalist Curriculum/Initiation

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

” I think that the mission is to unify all African people throughout the world through a single pan-African program to reclaim every inch of Africa for African people, all twelve million square miles of it. To restore African dignity to Africa, to stop imitating Europe, to put Africa back on the road to believing in itself again. Producing for itself, and to end this whole cultism around consumerism and begin to produce the things we eat, the clothes we wear, and the transportation we use. We need to restore self-reliance, because it is a terrible thing for a people to be out of power; and when a people are out of power for so long, they long desperately for power and when they get close to it they panic, because they have not rehearsed for power…education has but one honorable purpose, one alone; everything else is a waste of time… that is to train the student to be a proper handler of power. Being Black and beautiful means nothing until ultimately you’re Black and powerful. The world is ruled by power, not blackness and not by beauty.”

— John Henrik Clarke

Beyond writing a novel and organizing, I intend to perfect and put into practice a Four-Year Pan-African Nationalist Curriculum/Initiation. For now, I publish the basis for that Curriculum/Initiation. It is a composite of our Ancient African Curriculum, Odwirafo’s 7 Amensesew (Nation Building) and Male/Female Initiations. Ideally it would be a Four-Year Institution, where the first year has the 7 Liberal Arts and an examination of Men and Women and the remaining years offer a choice of 3 specializations of 7 that surround African Nation Building. I tried to simplify what Masteries each topic should gain a matriculant. As I expand this curriculum, I intend to go into further detail regarding each subject and what is expected from a student. I advise every Pan-African Nationalist to gain mastery of the “First Year” and at least two of the “Advanced Topics.” As well, those either in the capacity or interested in the capacity to teach young people or adults, should adopt this Curriculum to the best of his or her ability.

The Basis for a Four-Year Pan-African Nationalist Curriculum/Initiation By Onitaset Kumat

Ideally the First Year First Trimester*

Addendum: It’s worth noting that the Ancients can speak on much of the above subjects and beyond them. Here’s two lists to consider: The “Table of Contents” for “African Philosophy: The Pharaonic Period, 2780 – 330 B.C.” by Theophile Obenga:

Cosmos before the Present Universe Seed Time of the Cosmos Nwn, The Primal Waters The Primal Egg The Basic Elements: Water, Fire and Air Ontology and Cosmogenesis How what is came into being The Birth of the World The Organization of Nature The Four Great Achievements of Ra at Creation Time Of Time and Heavens Time, A Transempirical Value The Speed of Light and the Astronomical Distances of the Universe An Egyptian Decan List Variations in the length of day and night at different times of the year On the Nature of Sky Ethical Values The Salvation of Humanity: The Emergence of Feminine Power and Beauty Maxims of Ptahhotep Maxims of Kagemni Maat: The Code of Values On Death and Immortality On Death Human Destiny: Stars in the Afterlife The Intellectual Vocation In Praise of the Intellectual Life Egypt’s Civilizing Role Mapmaking-Navigation-Textile Chemistry Gold Mines of Wadi Hammamat Egyptian Geography: The Nile Valley The Egypto-Nubian Nile Valley and the Middle East Ancient Egyptian Geography: The Near East Dimensions of a Middle Kingdom Ship Construction of a Recreational Lake Textile-Related Chemical Industries Astronomy Geometrical and Astronomical Standards Governing the Orientation of Architectural Structures Egyptian Calendars Medicine The Circulatory System Anatomical Terms Concussion and Bleeding in the Petrosal Bone A Lesion of the Spinal Column Dissection: An Ancient Egyptian Practice Impaired Comprehension and Speech Due to Brain Damage Mathematics The Egyptian Conception of Mathematics Knowledge of the Technique of Algebraic Calculation The Concept of Logic in Ancient Egyptian Mathematics The Science of Measurement Calculating the Area of a Triangle Calculating the Area of a Circle Calculating the Surface Area of a Hemisphere Calculating the Volume of a Cylinder Calculating the Volume of a Truncated Pyramid Calculating the Angle of a Pyramidal Slope Calculating the Angle of the Slope of a Pyramid (Proof) Supplement A Historical Miscellany The Institution of Pharonic Rule The Economy: Agriculture, Crafts Deities and Temples The Grave and the Afterlife In Praise of the Intellectual Life Science and Technology Fine Arts The Art of Love

This comes from the earlier “Basis for an Ideal African Curriculum”, particularly George Jame’s “Stolen Legacy”:

(a) The Singer or Odus, who must know two books of Hermes dealing with Music i.e., the hymns of the Gods. (b) The Horoscopus, who must know four books of Hermes dealing with Astronomy. (c) The Hierogrammat, who must know the hieroglyphics, cosmography, geography, astronomy and the topography of Egypt and Land Surveying. (d) The Stolistes, who must know the books of Hermes that deal with slaughter of animals and the process of embalming. (e) The Prophetes, who is the President of the temple, and must know ten books of Hermes dealing with higher esoteric theology and the whole education of priests. (f) The Pastophori, who must know six books of Hermes, which are medical books, dealing with physiology, the diseases of male and female, anatomy, drugs and instruments. Architecture, masonry, carpentry, engineering, sculpture, metallurgy, agriculture, mining and forestry. Art (drawing and painting). Numerical symbolism, geometrical symbolism, magic, the book of the Dead, myths and parables. The Priests of Egypt were also Lawyers, Judges, officials of government, Business Men and Sailors and Captains. Hence, they must have been trained in Economics, Civics, Law, Government, Statistics, census taking, navigation, ship building, military science, the manufacture of chariots and horse breeding.

* Ideally each Trimester is 9 weeks long, with 1 Week of Examinations after and 2 Weeks of Rest, making a full year 34 Weeks long: 9 Weeks + 1 Week Examination + 2 Week Vacation + 9 + 1 + 2 + 9 + 1. Additionally each week can be 9 Hours of Study, 3 Hours for 3 Classes, whether One 3 hour class a week, Two 1.5 hour classes or Three hour classes.
