Join: The Units of Organization

The Units of Organization
By Onitaset Kumat

African people seeking to liberate African people have three key clarion calls:

“Africans Unite!”

“Africans Patronize!”

“Africans Remember!”

These three represent the trinity of liberation: Politics, Economics and Culture, respectively[1]. And each call comes from a scientific mindset: Sociological, Ecological and Psychological, respectively.[2]

Individuals hoping to be leaders oftentimes neglect to balance these mindsets when rallying for our liberation. As such, these rallies are fundamentally limited in their uplift and liberation of African people.

With this in mind, the aims of a liberating African organization is to represent all three mindsets such that none can be neglected.

This is the modus operandi of the African Blood Siblings. In the African Blood Siblings, each individual aiming to be organized for African liberation is examined[3] to determine of which scientific mindsets are their strengths. This examination yields a title which has a particular role within a team of Africans goaled toward African liberation. In this method, the trinity of liberation is achieved in the basic units of organization. The units then undertake self-governing, self-financing and self-educating projects according to the will of target communities.

The titles, their identifying codes (where “-” signifies age grade*), and their roles are as follows:

A3- : Ethical Philosopher — “Two wrongs don’t make a right?” So what makes right? As the African Blood Siblings is a moral organization, we answer “Opposing wrong makes a right.” The Ethical Philosopher is responsible for fielding what injustices a target community wishes to rectify, then communicating this to the other Philosophers. When the four Philosophers decide upon how to address the project at hand, the Ethical Philosopher draws up the plan and holds every member to that plan, reporting the progress to the African Blood Siblings as the project proceeds. The Ethical Philosopher is responsible for starting and maintaining all projects. The Ethical Philosopher also maintains contact with those surveyed for continual support and decides upon the weekly meetings and the format. There is only one Ethical Philosopher in a unit.

P2- : Political Philosopher — “Africans Unite!” is this Africans call. After the Ethical Philosopher decides upon a project, the Political Philosopher’s aim is to decide how can this project govern the African masses, training them into the necessary skills for which, those employed, can continue the project indefinitely. After the decision, this role maintains the units devotion to this task and additionally manages human resources for each project with the aid of subordinate Scientists. There is only one Political Philosopher in a unit.

E2- : Economical Philosopher — “Africans Patronize” is this Africans call. After the Ethical Philosopher decides upon a project, the Economical Philosopher’s aim is to decide how can this project entice the African masses, urging them into the necessary mentality for which, those patronizing, will continue to support the project indefinitely. After the decision, this role maintains the units devotion to this task and additionally manages production for each project with the aid of subordinate Scientists. There is only one Economical Philosopher in a unit.

C2- : Cultural Philosopher — “Africans Remember” is this Africans call. After the Ethical Philosopher decides upon a project, the Cultural Philosopher’s aim is to decide how can this project rekindle the African masses, reminding them of their necessary love for Africa(ns) for which, those patronizing, will continue to support the project indefinitely. After the decision, this role maintains the units devotion to this task and additionally manages the communality for each project with the aid of subordinate Scientists. There is only one Cultural Philosopher in a unit.

P1- : Political Scientist — The Political Scientist is a subordinate for a Political, Economical or Cultural Philosopher. Their focus is on those employed for the project according to which Philosopher they subordinate. Mainly, as per cooperation with their superordinate Philosopher, the Political Scientist fields recruits and supervises their training. They are responsible for the value of each employee. There are three Political Scientists in a unit; one for each Philosopher.

E1- : Economical Scientist — The Economical Scientist is a subordinate for a Political, Economical or Cultural Philosopher. Their focus is on those patronizing for the project according to which Philosopher they subordinate. Mainly, as per cooperation with their superordinate Philosopher, the Economical Scientists maintains accounts and supervises marketing. They are responsible for the productions from each employee. There are three Economical Scientists in a unit; one for each Philosopher.

C1- : Cultural Scientist — The Cultural Scientist is a subordinate for a Political, Economical or Cultural Philosopher. Their focus is on those patronizing for the project according to which Philosopher they subordinate. Mainly, as per cooperation with their superordinate Philosopher, the Cultural Scientists coordinates teachings and supervises designs. They are responsible for the identity of each patron. There are three Cultural Scientists in a unit; one for each Philosopher.

A0-: Student — According to the examination, the Student doesn’t yet display a remarkable strength in any aspect of the Trinity of Liberation. For this, the Student is urged to read and study more. It is recommended that after at least three books and twenty articles from the African Blood Siblings website, the student retries the exam to, if it is willed, place higher in the examination. There are no Students in a unit.

These roles fit neatly into a unit of thirteen people, where there are four different types of Philosophers and 9 Scientists of three equally divided types. Deeper analysis reveals that at least five people in the organization have Politics as their strength; at least five, Economics; and at least five, Culture. This means that every unit operates under the laws of harmony with regard the trinity of liberation. Further, the number is important: Marcus Mosiah Garvey, the African who organized the most Africans in modern time, has started his organization with twelve members. Every unit, then, has the capacity of doing as Garvey did, but these units additionally have the laws of harmony guaranteeing their success.

African Blood Siblings examines for individual titles and forms units according to its listing of African examinees and their preferred communities. Examination comes with a fee, as does consideration for unit organization.** This fee helps maintain the African Blood Siblings’ website and spread the influence of the African Blood Siblings. For organization is serious.[4]

Each team once assembled surveys a community for which injustices they deem offensive. After a survey of at least five-hundred (collected by the entire unit–including the contact of each surveyed), the Ethical Philosopher will choose an injustice to address and the Philosophers will deliberate on the inner workings of a project from which to increase the government, production, and reproduction of that community. This model is written down and submitted to the African Blood Siblings headquarters where correspondence between the Ethical Philosopher and headquarters is maintained throughout the project.

The project should be self-governing, self-financing, and self-educating. Additionally, each project, by survey, should have support from the community. The Ethical Philosopher thus informs those surveyed of their requested desires. In self-government, there are employees as decided by the unit. In self-financing, there are profits as decided by the unit. In self-educating, there are communities as decided by the unit.

Importantly, finances need to be discussed. The members strong in Economics understand that “business is turning 100 dollars into 1,000 dollars”[5] thus each project should have a business plan. Though a 10:1 ratio would be great, any ratio above four is minimal. When it comes to payments received for participation in a unit, the standard breakdown is 3% of the income to each member of the unit (a total of 39%). 24% to paying employees and expenses (which can include members). 10% to African Blood Siblings. 20% for the unit’s treasury (for future projects). And 7% for a rainy day. The Philosophers share responsibility for keeping faithful to this standard.

All said, each project should address an injustice of local concern, improving its chance for local support in addition to promoting African liberation here and abroad. Every unit should make a project independent before moving on to another. Also, individuals can participate in multiple units, just as units can participate in multiple projects. However, the individual within many units must be available to those units whenever they decide to meet. More, that individual needs to maintain the dues due the African Blood Siblings.

To become considered for membership within a unit, subscribe to the African Blood Siblings website and contact the organization with that particular emphasis. Upon receipt of payment, the package which invites members will be forthcoming.

* The age grade concept is adopted from our ancestors through Dr. Chancellor Williams. From page 176-8, in “The Destruction of Black Civilizations (1974)” he details the African Constitutional System and how age grades were a mainstay in our African communities. The following age grading is loosely based off of Dr. Chancellor Williams’ outline. It is used in the African Blood Siblings as it is used in our ancestry, to foster the intragenerational kinship of African people; therefore ideally there’s only one age group per unit:

a – 6-12, Children
b – 13- 19, Teenagers
c – 20-28, Young Adults
d – 29-40, Adults
e – 40+, Elders

** For Membership Fees: $30, includes a title,book, framed poem, and button with African Blood Siblings logo. For Examination: $20, includes a title. For Membership dues: $20 a month, or enlisting two new members, includes a listing on the African Blood Siblings website.

  1. Oni, in A3 you use the word fielding. Does this mean the ethical philosopher finds out what problems a particular community has.

    1. Hotep Sister Dallas,

      I thank you for the question. With “fielding” I mean that the Ethical Philosopher decides how the survey is done: wording and the unit’s responsibilities at surveying. Also, it is meant that the Ethical Philosopher (A3) takes the main responsibility of approving which particular project should be pursued at that time, weighing the strengths of the Philosophers, the projected support from those surveyed, and the viability of certain suggestions. In a sense, the survey content is fielded to the other Philosophers. Mainly, I mean that writing and interpreting the survey is a duty of the Ethical Philosopher. This is because a plurality in an open-ended survey may not reflect the community’s main will (for instance, if 40 people say “hair salon,” 50 people say “film theatre” and 30 people say “barber shop,” clearly more want something to do with hair, yet the film theatre is the plurality) and sometimes what’s most doable at the moment, with little capital, can be something not as popular (for instance, in the same setting, suppose three of the scientists are willing actors and one had experience in videography, but no one knew much about hair; doing a film theatre idea would be better to start with) but deciphering this is the responsibility of the Ethical Philosopher.

      Hotep,

Please ask any questions that come to mind
