Listen Siblings, I come in peace,
“The problem with Europeans and Asians is Europeans and Asians; the solutions for Africans is Africans.” — Onitaset Kumat
Today’s article is a story we all should read: The Story of Emmett Till. Researching him, he is very, very loveable. It’s important to see, though, that his story is the story of our lack of strong communities. As such, this story relates to the Story of Rekia Boyd, the Story of Trayvon Martin and the Story of Ramarley Graham. Which will tie in to the Allegory of the Inevitable Murder.
It is my sincere wish that this story will prompt you to share it and follow the African Blood Siblings, the only organization organizing for stronger independent, prosperous African communities. You are the key to our success; for it’s always on your shoulders whether thousands read a story in a day or a year. Always strive to put the important before us today.

The Story of Emmett Till
By Onitaset Kumat
On August 27, 1955, a fourteen-year-old African named Emmett Till was beaten and shot to death by two Europeans. Here was one of our ancestors killed before his time, because African people don’t have our stuff together. In the year that Emmett Till was born, 1941, an Occidental named Gunnar Myrdal published a study that concluded that White people perceived Blacks wanted integration for interracial sex but also concluded that Black people didn’t care for interracial sex. Now in comes Emmett Till. Emmett Till is a fourteen-year-old man. He’s proud to be Black, but unfortunately his pride partially comes in the form of his sexual conquest of White women. Now this self-pride is troubling for the race; sure. But Emmett Till is not only proud for his conquest, but he’s outright vocal about it. With other African youth, this Chicago boy brags about his conquest to Mississippi youth outside a store where a European works. So one stupidly dares him to flirt with that European. Now, she makes most all of her money off of African people, because in Mississippi the system guarantees that we’re dependent, but after Emmett Till flirts with her, she goes to get her gun. When her husband returns, three days later, hearing about the Chicago boy, he and his friend round up African youth, allowed by the town (Black and White) to launch their own investigation. When finally it’s concluded that Emmett Till was the flirter. They went into his house, kidnapped him and beat him. But Emmett Till is a fourteen-year-old man. So according to them, which should be taken with a grain-of-salt, they would have let him off, battered and bruised as he was. But after they asked “You still better than me?,” Emmett Till told it like it is: “Yeah.”
They killed him.
Now this story has a lot to teach. I do not need to go in depth about how many myths we constantly are bombarded with. For instance, today “Women with Guns” seems rare, yet wasn’t this White woman going to shoot Emmett Till? Or today “The White man” is seen as the big threat, but again, wasn’t this White woman going to shoot Emmett Till?
No, what we need to do is learn from our past. Because the Story of Rekia Boyd, the Story of Trayvon Martin and the Story of Ramarley Graham tells us that we didn’t learn enough. Where is the African leadership that could tell these two Europeans–we’ll handle our problems and if you don’t like it too bad? Where is that leadership? That power?
Emmett Till didn’t die because he flirted with a White woman. Emmett Till died because we the Black masses let White men walk into his dwelling and lynch him. That’s what happened in these other stories.
So when we read about these recent deaths. We should not be shocked. We should not ask “What’s going on?” We should ask–“How can I protect the future Emmett Till’s?” and “What can I do toward their protection?” And so far answers are subscribe to this newsletter and continue to discern yourselves for leadership. The African Blood Siblings provides a detailed evaluation for where you fit in the Organizations for Liberation. Use that to organize. Otherwise don’t tell people on the streets “Hi” but “Bye” because one of you will die soon. They’re killing us and you alone think organization is a joke.
