Listen Siblings, I come in peace,

“You look absolutely Black today.” — Onitaset Kumat

Fable: The Black Compliment
By Onitaset Kumat

At the same time, every school day, a young lady bypasses me.  Always, with an adoring smile, I tell her, “Hey Sister, you look absolutely Black today.”

After more than a month of this routine, her first reply was screamed: “Well, I am Black!”

So I responded with a larger, more adoring smile, “You sure are!”

But this, not fulfilling her attempt to silence me made her stop a moment: “So why do you keep telling me that I look Black?”

I answered.

Every morning afterward, she responded to my greeting with “why thank you” before heading off to school.

For Black

Is Beautiful.

      1. Lol but I don’t have anything to say! im not as good a writer as you are! your writings and fables are so creative, I’ve been going through all of them…
        I’m having a hard time understanding what is the difference between occidentalism and originals philosophy tho…
        Also who are the kemet, are those the ancient Egyptians?

      2. Occidental means Western; Oriental means Eastern; Original means of the Origin.

        Occidentals are Europeans and Originals are Africans. Essentially, Spiritually, the two are fundamentally different.

        The following series and this post on Lore are very helpful:



        Regarding Kemet (KMT) it stands for “Black Land” which was one of the names the Ancient Egyptians gave their land. A more clear image on them may be found in researching Dr. Ben.
