What is Responsibility?

Listen Siblings, I come in peace,

“It is certain that dependence is poverty is slavery. But all is according the Creator’s justice. So, can we say that dependence, poverty, and slavery are just?” — Knobeco

One of the most exciting aspects of international organization are the people with whom one can interact.  I have an assortment of pleasurable contacts, and hope to include you amongst them, but Knobeco is amongst the most unforgettable.  He’s very charitable, very well-read and very, very loyal.  In the past week, he approached me with the above question and he and I had a time delving into the wisdom of our ancestors in order to flesh out first the question of justice then the mission of the African Blood Siblings.  Read our conversation and Write to help create Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise Africans through African Blood Siblings Community Centers.  When you Rally for such justice, we can have Prosperous, Independent, African Communities at home and abroad.  This post will have the highlighting tradition.   There is no Red bold; but Black represents Ancient Truth and Green represents My Truth (follow the links; some are Collected Quotations.)    Purchase literature.  Subscribe, share, love.

What is Responsibility?
By Onitaset Kumat

Knobeco: Em Hotep (I come in peace.) It is certain that dependence is poverty is slavery. But all is according the Creator’s justice. So, can we say that dependence, poverty, and slavery are just?
Onitaset Kumat: Very interesting question, Knobeco. Hotep (Peace.) Do you think that it is true advice to “Always watch and follow nature”?
Knobeco: It is from Wa’set: Where our Ancestors recorded their wisdom. I would hope so.
Onitaset Kumat: Then supposing we immersed ourselves into a visit upon nature. Could we there see Wildebeests?
Knobeco: Very much so. You were once a Wildebeest yourself, Onitaset Kumat.
Onitaset Kumat: Or it was a Fable. But wouldn’t you say that as all is according the Creator’s justice, the Wildebeest lives by the Creator’s justice?
Knobeco: Very naturally.
Onitaset Kumat: And isn’t it the Wildebeest’s justice to hide from the Crocodile?
Knobeco: Yes.
Onitasat Kumat: Similarly, as all is according the Creator’s justice, and as we observe the Crocodile seeking the Wildebeest, can not it be stated that the Crocodile lives by the Creator’s justice too?
Knobeco: We would need to.
Onitaset Kumat: But when one hides and one seeks, the two oppose one another but both are just, doesn’t this mean that ‘justice’ is necessarily specific to the spirit of things?
Knobeco: Necessarily. That is what is meant by Spiritual Capital; that spirit determines morality. You rediscovered this Onitaset Kumat.
Onitaset Kumat: Yes. And do you find truth in “Leave him in error who loves his error”?
Knobeco: Another from Wa’set: Where our ancestors recorded their wisdom. It is truth. It is wasteful to will to correct those who love their errors.
Onitaset Kumat: Let me ask you something personal then. Which between these two choices would you wish upon yourself: “Independence, Prosperity and Liberty” or “Dependence, Poverty and Slavery?”
Knobeco: A silly question if I ever heard one. I would prefer the former.
Onitaset Kumat: Very much so and according your spirit. But looking around at how your condition fits the latter wherever you interact with Asians or Europeans, which of these do these Asians and Europeans prefer upon you?
Knobeco: Dependence, Poverty and Slavery.
Onitaset Kumat: And this is according their spirit. Hence, by the Asian and European, your Dependence, Poverty and Slavery is just. However, as the Wildebeest’s justice is her opposition to the Crocodile’s; your Independence, Prosperity and Liberty, the preference your spirit chose, comes only through separation from the other races.
Knobeco: What about through prayer? Can I pray away the misery?
Onitaset Kumat: Would you be the first?
Knobeco: I do not suppose so.
Onitaset Kumat: Then what makes you think that the prayers have not already been answered? For instance, isn’t it the case that you will for Independence, Prosperity and Liberty?
Knobeco: Yes.
Onitaset Kumat: And isn’t it the case that you have the necessary physical, mental and spiritual endowments?
Knobeco: Of course! Our anatomy is superb, our intellect unquestionable and our spirit instructive.
Onitaset Kumat: Then you’re perfectly capable of separation. After all, your superb anatomy tends to your escape, your unquestionable intellect manages your route, and your instructive spirit teaches you this undeniable truth: The problem with Europeans and Asians is Europeans and Asians; the solution for Africans is Africans!
Knobeco: Very much so. Yet undeniable as it is, it does not appear self-evident. Mostly because if our solution is African people, how do we account for Africans who have done against Africans?
Onitaset Kumat: Do you find truth in “One foot isn’t enough to walk with.”
Knobeco: Another from Wa’set: Where our ancestors recorded their wisdom. Of course it is true. Walking requires two feet. But what’s the relation?
Onitaset Kumat: Aren’t there countless examples of Africans doing against Africans?
Knobeco: I could not count it. But how is this to your point?
Onitaset Kumat: Well, we can not judge all of them, but we can judge common examples, right?
Knobeco: No less than a million would be common. But I suppose that we can judge them. I seek the point.
Onitaset Kumat: Well, think on these many millions, Knobeco, was the perpetrator of wrong “Dependent, Poor, and Enslaved” or “Independent, Prosperous, and Liberated?”
Knobeco: I see. These were one footed perpetrators. “One foot isn’t enough to walk with.” Though Africans do against Africans, the perpetrators are dependent, poor and enslaved. But why does this make Europeans and Asians problems?
Onitaset Kumat: They have no excuse. Don’t their independent, prosperous and liberated do wrong against us?
Knobeco: Universally! Still, it remains to be seen how Africans are the solution and Europeans and Asians are the problem. I understand spiritual differences and yet I feel that there’s more.
Onitaset Kumat: Do you find truth in “The seed includes all the possibilities of the tree. The seed will develop these possibilities, however, only if it receives corresponding energies from the sky.”
Knobeco: Another from Wa’set: Where our ancestors recorded their wisdom. Of course I find truth therein. Within a seed is both a barren and fruitful tree. Sufficient nurturing will yield the latter; insufficient, the former.
Onitaset Kumat: Well do you remember our conversation on “The Science of Struggle?”
Knobeco: Absolutely. I learned a lot then.
Onitaset Kumat: So you remember the creation story?
Knobeco: From the uncreated the Creator created.
Onitaset Kumat: And you remember how struggle here parallels?
Knobeco: Struggle is creating from the uncreated.
Onitaset Kumat: Very Good! It’s no wonder you are an Ethical Philosopher in the African Blood Siblings! But now we will discuss very seriously, tell me if you are prepared to really see the truth of the phrase.
Knobeco: I am prepared.
Onitaset Kumat: Which is the highest aspiration which all ought strive, a moral expression in and of itself: “Love, Knowledge and Wisdom” or “Hate, Ignorance and Error?”
Knobeco: Love, Knowledge and Wisdom.
Onitaset Kumat: Then, in the deepest recesses of your heart, do you believe that everyone can be loving, knowledgeable and wise?
Knobeco: I do not know if you would agree with me, but Onitaset Kumat, I do conceive that all can be loving, knowledgeable and wise.
Onitaset Kumat: As do I. So if all can be loving, knowledgeable and wise, isn’t there within all of us an uncreated or created Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise Person?
Knobeco: Necessarily. “The seed includes all the possibilities of the tree.”
Onitaset Kumat: But here’s where we get serious. For tell me aren’t the Popes, Caliphates, Politicians, and Professors considered loving, knowledgeable and wise amongst their Independent, Prosperous and Liberated constituents: Asians and Europeans?
Knobeco: Absolutely. So it is known that those of such distinctions are widely regarded as loving, knowledgeable and wise!
Onitaset Kumat: Then pay close attention. Aren’t these professions responsible for sanctioning and ordering genocides, jihads, physical and mental enslavement; injuries, insults and injustices against African people?
Knobeco: I concede.
Onitaset Kumat: Then it is established, that the highest aspiration of the European or Asian, to be Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise Europeans and Asians, is in fact a status of Hate, Ignorance and Error against African people. Ergo, Europeans and Asians are inherently, in their highest aspirations, problems against African people. Erstwhile, the Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise African is guilty of no trespasses against African people. Hence she is the solution.
Knobeco: I can see that a Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise European or Asian can be against African people. But as it is true that “The seed includes all the possibilities of the tree” can not the European or Asian be nurtured to be akin to the Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise African who conducts no trespasses against African people?
Onitaset Kumat: Have not we agreed upon “Always watch and follow nature”?
Knobeco: Yes we have.
Onitaset Kumat: So is it alright if we returned to the Wildebeest and the Crocodile?
Knobeco: I recommend as much.
Onitaset Kumat: Well, spirit is a central aspect of morality.
Knobeco: Of course. This is what is meant by Spiritual Capital. It’s your own Philosophical rediscovery, Philosopher-King.
Onitaset Kumat: Then isn’t it so that the Wildebeest can not make a just Crocodile, but can be a just Wildebeest?
Knobeco: Of course. A Wildebeest of a Crocodile’s morals would wait in water to pull its brethren within and feast on its siblings flesh, such a Wildebeest would be immoral by both Crocodile and Wildebeest standards. It could not even survive.
Onitaset Kumat: Well, isn’t it the case that a Crocodile can not make a just Wildebeest, but can make a just Crocodile?
Knobeco: Naturally. A Crocodile which spent its time out of water, galloping, eating grass and so forth could not wait for the judgment of her peers: she’d be dead before adulthood.
Onitaset Kumat: But isn’t it so that you can try to raise the Wildebeest or the Crocodile to be like the other?
Knobeco: Very much so. Though the exercise may be fruitless.
Onitaset Kumat: Yes, and isn’t it fruitless because that Wildebeest or Crocodile possesses a spirit toward their respective moralities?
Knobeco: Yes. A Crocodile who tastes flesh and the joy of the water will be less inclined to gallop and eat grass; just as the Wildebeest, whose appetite is spoiled by his brethren or whose wet body is a hindrance, would prefer galloping and the fields.
Onitaset Kumat: Then if Love, Knowledge and Wisdom are the highest aspiration, being moral expressions in and of themselves, isn’t it just as fruitless to deter the Europeans or Asians from this height.
Knobeco: I see! And I do not want you to belabor the point, yet I find the point rather dismal. I would prefer to think that so-called “Free Will” would allow for a European or Asian who does good by African people. “The seed includes all the possibilities of the tree!”
Onitaset Kumat: Knobeco, no one denies that the Crocodile can emulate the Wildebeest or vise-versa, just as no one denies that the European or Asian can emulate the Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise African; after all we see the reverse in Dependent, Poor and Enslaved Africans all the while whom emulate Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise Europeans and Asians who do against African people. But it’s upon you to understand your name. Knobeco means “The Instructions of Life” or more particularly “Know Thyself, Be Thyself, Complete Thyself.”
Knobeco: And I am thankful to you for the name.
Onitaset Kumat: I am thankful to you for receiving it. But Knobeco, consider the animals above, if the Crocodile emulates the Wildebeest, or the Wildebeest the Crocodile, neither are satisfying Life’s Second Instruction: “Be Thyself.” But as the Crocodile above who finds his home on the fields and the Wildebeest above who finds his home in the water, fail the First Instruction–“Know Thyself”–you know, upon the former’s discovery of water and the latter’s the field, their upbringing will be tossed aside and, as Aesop had said, “Nature will out.” For isn’t it true “To teach one must know the nature of those whom one is teaching.”
Knobeco: Another from Wa’set: Where our ancestors recorded their wisdom. It is so that nothing is learned that is discordant to the spirit. But it looks to me that this separation means that there’s no redemption for the European or Asian. That no matter if they are educated as Africans, that European or Asian will be a problem. Is this what is to be meant?
Onitaset Kumat: It is so. An African Education for Europeans or Asians is Mis-Education: Education discordant to their internal spirit and life’s instructions; because Africans possess a different morality from Europeans and Asians and Nature will out. This has been consistently shown.
Knobeco: It has. The European and Asian emulating the Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise African will not find Knowledge of Self. This is evident wherein the African emulating Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise Europeans and Asians are ignorant of self, aptly called “Mis-Educated.” But I do not understand, is it not better to try and fail than to leave?
Onitaset Kumat: Knobeco, have you ever heard of the Circus acts involving Lions or Tigers?
Knobeco: I have. What comes to mind is where a trainer goes into a cage with a Lion with only a chair and whip, or a trainer place his head into a Tiger’s mouth.
Onitaset Kumat: Good examples. With the second. Would you put your head in a Tiger’s mouth?
Knobeco: I hope that I never do.
Onitaset Kumat: What if the Tiger were well trained.
Knobeco: I do not look forward to such a circumstance. I heard of men who died due their faith in the Tiger’s discipline.
Onitaset Kumat: Then isn’t it better to leave the Tiger untrained then to try to train the Tiger?
Knobeco: So it is. A trained Tiger does not “Know herself,” but when she discovers the taste of flesh is to her liking, it’s only a matter of time before she will “be herself,” from then she’s better off in a community of Tigers and man-killers, rather than trainers and men–the stage for which she “completes herself.”
Onitaset Kumat: It is so. For wasn’t Greece the most Africanized European state of its time? And had not Greece conquered Egypt with a brutality unknown to the African world? Isn’t it so that “Nature will out”?
Knobeco: Yes. It becomes more evident as to why our Ancient Temples, like Wa’set, originally prohibited Europeans and Asians and why when they forcibly admitted themselves they were never able to complete the African education. I see it now. Separation is the greatest gesture that we can do for ourselves and for others. But as you make the point that we have an inherent ambition toward becoming Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise, to complete our uncreated selves. Why is there a need to rally for African Blood Siblings Community Centers when we long to be created all our own?
Onitaset Kumat: For this we can be brief. Remember “The seed includes all the possibilities of the tree. The seed will develop these possibilities, however, only if it receives corresponding energies from the sky.” This means that the uncreated Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise African must be actively created. For many this aspect remains uncreated because Life is the culmination of consequences but not all consequences lend to this positive creation. Said otherwise, All experiences are consequences of consequences, yet not all consequences befit the spirit.
Knobeco: That is truth.
Onitaset Kumat: Do you think that it is also true that Man must learn to increase his sense of responsibility and of the fact that everything he does will have its consequences.
Knobeco: It is from Wa’set: Where our ancestors recorded their wisdom. Of course it is true. Though it begs the question, “What is Responsibility?”
Onitaset Kumat: “All speech comes from all listening, but all wise from where is wise.”
Knobeco: That is from “Maroon and Build For Self.” I love the collection and I purchase another one every week and happily distribute the purchase amongst our people.
Onitaset Kumat: I know this Knobeco. You help sustain me and spread the word of our organization and mission. But let’s evaluate this. Isn’t it so that speech communicates thought?
Knobeco: It has to.
Onitaset Kumat: And isn’t it so that one who listens to a foreign language enough can begin to speak and think in that language?
Knobeco: That is how we learn languages.
Onitaset Kumat: So all that is listened to has an effect on one’s mind.
Knobeco: Naturally.
Onitaset Kumat: Then all negativity has a negative impact, correct?
Knobeco: Yes.
Onitaset Kumat: And all positivity has a positive impact, right?
Knobeco: This was shared in the Fable of the Fit Squirrel.
Onitaset Kumat: Then as all sensed has an impact, isn’t it responsible to ensure good consequences and irresponsible to allow bad consequences?
Knobeco: Necessarily.
Onitaset Kumat: Then responsibility is ensuring good consequences.
Knobeco: So it appears.
Onitaset Kumat: But if Life has one instruction, your name, “Know Thyself, Be Thyself, and Complete Thyself,” doesn’t that mean that a Good Consequence sets one to the path of Completing oneself?
Knobeco: Very excellent and true!
Onitaset Kumat: Then this is the necessity of the African Blood Siblings Community Centers. For it is our responsibility to create of our people Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise Africans, a step toward Prosperous, Independent African Communities at home and abroad.
Knobeco: Such a worthy mission!
Onitaset Kumat: And it’s upon all who would call themselves responsible to devote themselves to the African Blood Siblings, the only organization willing to create the uncreated Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise African amongst our people.
Knobeco: Necessarily.
Onitaset Kumat: Then Knobeco, you are on the right path. Please continue to share our organization. And continue to purchase our literature. You’re indispensible to our success. We will for the Independence, Prosperity and Liberty of African people and you are a reliable aid.
Knobeco: I shall continue. In fact I will purchase some literature right now.
Onitaset Kumat: I am gracious. Have we answered your question?
Knobeco: Yes and my conviction is renewed. I trust you will guide our race to restoration. I am thankful to the conversation and I will go on to spread more news of the African Blood Siblings and Onitaset Kumat the Philosopher-King! Shem Hotep (I go in peace!)
Onitaset Kumat: Shem Hotep, African Blood Sibling Knobeco Knobeco!

  1. Onitaset,

    First, may I say that your analogy is spot on. And I like the way that you define what is “just” to the European and the Asian in regards to the African. It certainly explains their nature.

    I was watching a video on Professor Griff from Public Enemy about the same thing that you bespeak. Why is it so hard for us to know ourselves? I understand that being conquered and robbed of our heritage has done a great deal of damage to our subconscious, but sometimes it feels like we’re struggling to reclaim our sense of decency.

    1. Many of our people are not struggling in the sense of organizing for a Community Center. As in geometry where no form is without a center; no Community can be without a Center. Ours is a problem of no Community Centers, particularly African Blood Siblings Community Centers.

      People on the streets agree to Community Centers. They support the idea of our youth having places to play sports and receive homework help! That’s how deficient in Philosophy we are!

      Sports? Homework Help? One is to entertain White people, the other is to work for them. When will we think of Racial Independence? When will we design Community Centers to make of a community Prosperity, Independence and Purity?

      Our problem is no Racial Independence in Consciousness; as such our task is ahead of us. We only look like Africans today. Just like Trained Tigers only look like Tigers. We are created in the Creator’s image–we were created to be creative and create. What do we create today?

      Yesterday was Pyramids, Tomorrow? Let it be African Blood Siblings Community Centers, and afterward Prosperous, Independent African Communities, and afterward a Restored Continent.

      It takes a lot to teach our people to Be Themselves. But Responsibility is teaching our people to Complete Themselves. The task is ahead of us. We’ll make it happen.

      1. Something that especially hard for me to admit is some of us do not want to be responsible for ourselves. Responsibility is work. Responsibility is commitment. And many of us have lost that commitment to ourselves.

      2. This is what is meant by ignorance of self. Sankofa: Return and Get it. If we understood that our Ancestors were Responsible and we ought emulate them, we’d turn around then and there. Unfortunately, we are Mis-Educated, i.e. Cross-Racially educated. What this means is that we offer European Solutions to African Problems. What does this mean?

        An actual study of Europeans will show that we handle our problems like they do. The difference, however, is that they do not have our problems. So, how does the European, especially of the “American” variety, oppose his government? He votes every two to four years. Beyond this, the European does no more than support his ideas when a rally is held.

        What about the African? The African has the problem of being racially dependent in Food, Clothing, Shelter and Consciousness. The European has no solution to this problem because he does not have this problem. So what does the African do? Seeing how the European is without this problem, the African is unaware that this is a problem or convinces herself that it isn’t!

        This is what is meant by Ignorance of Self.

        What’s worse, some people on the streets say that abominable phrase “Na, I’m cool.” This is their response to taking responsibility “Na, I’m cool.”

        I’m coming to new truths. But the struggle continues and we will succeed. We’re not the mightiest race because we can give up.

  2. Yeah…I know what you mean. I get the “You’re putting too much emphasis on race! Not all whites are like that, blah, blah, blah…”

    What bothers me is the denial some of us have.

  3. What about when they say “We are all one?”

    One reason why such a center can’t be allowed to exist outside Africa is because it’ll be accused of sowing seeds of separation. It might be classified as the African KKK in that, it explicitly teaches the African to be non-European i.e. it accepts the fundamental aspect of the European Spirit to be cruel and hurtful to the african spirit.

    1. Ironically, the belief that the European spirit is fundamentally cruel and hurtful to the African is one of the primary beliefs of European people. It is why they supported Liberia.

      As African people, we tend to neglect the Asian influences on the Zeitgeist. The European Jew borrows from Asian doctrines. Oftentimes we read of Europeans blaming these “Jews” for the policies of integration. Sometimes the debate comes up in African circles. All the while we do not realize that the European and African’s self-interest lost to the Asian’s self-interest, where the European now dominates the African, but the Asian, the smallest population, is said to have a very large influence.

      I was a part of the United African Movement for a spell. Head by Alton Maddox Jr., the organization met weekly and prohibited the entrance of European people. I do not remember the full detail because I was not there and the second-hand accounts didn’t seem to concerned, but when one European woman attempted to attend, they kicked her out and she sued. It is my understanding that Alton Maddox Jr. himself showed in court that [EDIT: Private Gatherings are allowed to prohibit certain people.]

      Otherwise, I also hear that the Nation of Islam’s Fruit of Islam had once had police officers rushing into their Mosque. Elijah Muhammad however informed the Fruit of Islam that it was their duty to protect the women and children. The Fruit of Islam is reported to have thrown the officers out of the Mosque and the Mosque was never again infiltrated by Europeans.

      Certainly, we can be classified meanly, but it’s a small price to pay for Knowledge of Self; Prosperous, Independent African Communities; and a Restored Africa. Besides, we have never been classified well.

      More most Europeans are separatists themselves. This was “White Flight.” This was Jim Crow. This was the birth of Europeans. They have a craving to dominate, certainly, but we can not live according the Europeans always. There are things we must do for ourselves. All other people have Community Centers and hotspots for their youths except us. I walked by a Jewish Community Center, the tower was opulent and fancy. It’s a terror for our people that we are not providing them with a center from which to learn Knowledge of Self. It’s terrible when we mis-organize as if we are Europeans, hurting our women and confusing our men.

      Certain things man and woman should fight for. What do you say?

      1. <ahref="is this the other foot when it comes to" title="Maddox."

        we tend to not even find our way to the rich/white meetings/boardrooms owing to racial segregation/financial constraints, so there is always a way to go about doing this legally, especially when the laws you made were always to serve you

        what happened with that woman who attempted to sue. did the court observe her the infamous rule?

        what do you mean , Oni, when you say the emphasis on race maight be

        moving on, how do we reconcile the idea of the
        seed containing all the possibilities
        “or”

        for at what point is a person no longer worth investing in
        furthermore,
        can we accurately discern who is in error” as opposed to who does not follow us i.e. conform to our expectation, ideals, behaviours, etc

      2. what happened with that woman who attempted to sue. did the court observe her the infamous rule?

        I edited a correction. Attorney-At-War Alton H. Maddox Jr. argued that a private gathering can be exclusive, akin to how a family gathering doesn’t permit all guests. As it were, there are European Jewish gatherings that you can’t as an African dream of attending. The thing is that if you know the law, you can know too of other relevant cases and put that relevant case before the judge thus, nominally federally protected from racial discrimination, win any court case that was similarly won. In other words, the legal profession is about repeating successes, this is why no African woman receives justice against a European man.

        what do you mean , Oni, when you say the emphasis on race maight be

        This is not a direct quotation, so I presume that you are referring to the comments that Sister Truthbetold gets from our people. She is reminding us that we as an African people are largely educated by Europeans who deny the existence of races–called liberals. The denial stems from an ignorance of the ancient world. Lady Lugard excellently poses the picture here: https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/2011/11/24/a-quotation-on-our-past-renown-from-lady-lugard/

        What’s never answered regarding “no race” is why did Europe only have two episodes of civilizations, both after 1000 BCE; but Africa had civilizations going back 60,000 BCE.

        for at what point is a person no longer worth investing in

        All “Africans” are worth investing in. However certain denominations can wait. It’s best to gain that second foot, if you will, then to beat a dead horse.

        Remember A pupil may show you by his own efforts how much he deserves to learn from you. On the streets, some tell you “I’ll be back” and either don’t show up or show up much later. Think, if you don’t get them today, someone you do get can get them tomorrow. Part of it is knowing to what esteem they uphold self-hatred.

        ” can we accurately discern who is in error” as opposed to who does not follow us i.e. conform to our expectation, ideals, behaviours, etc “

        Yes. By the by, the goal can be said to be ‘restoring the African’s nature.’ So there is one wisdom leading to that restoration. Error mis-leads away.

        Wisdom is the ABSCC. Error isn’t. :)

  4. Here is another question…

    I like that you used animals to illustrate a point of spirit. When it comes to humans, we all pretty much look the same. How can you tell the spirit of one from the other? In nature, the most venomous creatures find ways to attract there prey e.g. camouflage in such a way that when the prey realizes the danger, it is too late. So it follows that for you not to be prey, you must find a way to look beyond what you can see i.e. look at the spirit of something directly.

    How do you do that?

    When you say, know thyself, be thyself, complete thyself it’s such that for the European it means that the African must not know thyself, be thyself or complete thyself. They are active in ensuring this never happens. This is part of the european knowing thyself, being thyself and completing thyself. So they will work to ensure that your intentions of the african spirit to realize its potential never happens.

    What solution is there to bypass this problem?

    1. “The problem with Europeans and Asians is Europeans and Asians; the solution for Africans is Africans!”

      This analysis amounts to separating Occidentalism, Orientalism from Originalism. It’s akin to Sankofa: Return and Get It.

      The purest form of the African nature I know of is:

      https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/directory/abs/lore/races/originals/

      The key to Self-Knowledge and Cosmic Wisdom had been preserved by our ancestors here:

      https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/2012/02/04/kmt-self-knowledge-and-cosmic-wisdom-quotations/

      To do for our race, we are building African Blood Siblings Community Centers.

      Within we put those Self-Knowledge quotations. We also teach the Philosophical Basis for African Liberation:

      https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/2012/06/29/the-philosophical-basis-of-african-liberation-and-the-means-to-achieve-it/

      And Racial Separation (the next article).

      These engage the four sciences: Philosophy, Sociology, Ecology and Psychology.

      From there, for all intents and purposes, the African is on her way to becoming Loving, Knowledgeable and Wise and thus restoring Africa and African people.

      For from there there is a center from which to operate on those sciences. For instance, an African Blood Siblings Community Center acts as a delivery center for a Community. Therefore distribution is centralized and people become informed when African farmers send produce, or lecturers come to their township, or a designer drops off her wares. When distribution is centralized, regular events raise our consciousness and we become a people who circulate our resources, thus reconnecting us with the Continent and the Diaspora. That makes us a Prosperous, Independent, African Community. In that Completion of Self is imminent.

      Is that satisfactory?

  5. Thanks for the replies.

    I get what you are saying, what you are attempting to do. To reconnect africans to the african spirit.

    Here is where I say, what exactly is the African Spirit?

    I spent most of my childhood in Africa and the latter part of it in Europe. I have seen both sides of the coin. I understand that European solutions are not African Solutions, in fact when I was in school in Africa, one of my teachers mentioned this, citing it as a reason why they the Europeans haven’t really got control of Africa the way they want. A lot of it is still untamed despite multiple attempts to tame.

    Additionally africa itself has many divisions. It can be brutal and cruel and uncaring. Some people are power hungry, others use and abuse others etc. Also let us go back thousands of years to when africans as a race were glorious; free and independent to self-determine. Something happened and as a result we are where we are now. As you say, the problem isn’t europeans or asians, they just capitalized on something that must have come from within. What are your thoughts as to what this could be?

    Another point of view, words like “Community”, “Philosophy”, “Spirit” etc words that are crucial to what you are trying to achieve, these words since they are English words are constrained by the European way of seeing things i.e. how we have been taught to visualize the concepts these words embody.

    How would our “ancestors” describe a “Community” or “Philosophy” or “Spirit”?

    I am asking all these questions because I am a bit of a defeatist i.e.despite what I feel, the reality is that they have won for now. It’s not so much that we can free ourselves, rather the relentless movement of time sees things change thus maybe one day we might be free again but certainly not because of the power of our Will to be free, rather by the power of nature to periodically free and enslave people. Weirdly enough, these happens because nature acts through us and everything else, individually and collectively.

      ONE OF THE MOST TROUBLESOME FACTS IN THE STUDY OF
      history over very long periods of times, such as several centuries, is that a truth may slowly emerge, period after period, until it clearly forms itself into a truth impregnable, a fact nowhere explicitly stated as such in the mass of data covered. As one continues to move on down through the centuries, countless events and situations may continue to make supporting additions to what has already been established as an unassailable fact. Yet that truth may be so repugnant, so utterly void of any rational or intelligent reason for its existence that hardly any historian would wish to state it in his work.

      Yet I did just that when I wrote that the whites are the implacable foe, the traditional and everlasting enemy of the Blacks. The compelling reason for publicly putting this declaration in its historical context is clear: The necessary re-education of Blacks and a possible solution of racial crises can begin, strangely enough, only when Blacks fully realize this central fact in their lives: The white man is their Bitter Enemy. For this is not the ranting of wild-eyed militancy, but the calm and unmistakable verdict of several thousand years of documented history. Even the sample case-study of ten black states in this work shows that each and every one of those states was destroyed by whites.

      — Dr. Chancellor Williams, see more here: https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/2012/01/02/excerpt-from-the-black-world-at-the-crossroad-in-the-destruction-of-black-civilization-1974-by-dr-chancellor-williams/

      wilson, the problem is, always has been, and always will be European and Asian people. (The problem with Europeans and Asians is Europeans and Asians; the solution for Africans is Africans.)

      To reference the downfall we need to reference what was. African Civilization came from Central Africa but before the Sahara was desert, African people had created wondrous Civilizations along the Sahara. When that dried up, those Africans founded most of the Civilizations of the Ancient World. This is why Egypt starts off at such an advanced state.

      Egypt is very important however. Ethiopia is the name of the African Continent. At one point, African people had one Queen, the Queen of Ethiopia, this is why Queen Shebah III has a claim over every African today. See: https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/2012/07/13/case-study-for-original-history-queen-shebah-iii/

      Ethiopia started Egypt by clearing the marshlands and building the Ancient Civilization. The Unification between Upper and Lower Egypt represents the Unification of Africans with Asians (and Europeans.) This was the beginning of the end of the African race.

      Two tendencies govern human choice and effort, the search after quantity and the search after quality. They classify mankind. Some follow Maat, others seek the way of animal instinct.

      It is clear that this quotation, from Wa’Set, represents the contrast between Africans against Asians and Europeans, though not entirely. Truly, we all follow our animal instinct–our spirits–it’s only that the African Spirit is toward Quality, following Maat; whereas, by our standards, the European or Asian Spirit is toward Quantity, not following Maat.

      Egypt was thus the first Multi-Racial state. But as it is inherent that Asians and Europeans will destroy while Africans create, the continual destruction of Ancient Egypt is what led to the tribes of Africa today. See this post, a collection of evidence that dispersed tribes have a cultural continuity with Egypt/Ethiopia: https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/2011/12/22/excerpts-pertaining-to-cultural-continuity-on-the-continent/

      So what happened is evident. African people united with Asians and Europeans and this unification thereafter meant a destruction of African civilization. We see this example again in the oft regarded Moorish conquest of the Iberian Peninsula. It’s the Moors who bring the guns and the seafaring to the Europeans and it’s these weapons that make the trans-atlantic slave trade possible. The Moors did this, of course, with Asian assistance, for it’s the Asian who participated in the slave trade prior to the European’s involvement.

      I hope that I sufficiently answered this question. Have I?

      Another point of view, words like “Community”, “Philosophy”, “Spirit” etc words that are crucial to what you are trying to achieve, these words since they are English words are constrained by the European way of seeing things i.e. how we have been taught to visualize the concepts these words embody.

      How would our “ancestors” describe a “Community” or “Philosophy” or “Spirit”?

      The “European way of seeing things” can be separated from the African way. Especially since Fundamentally, each of these Philosophical Concepts are related to the “African way of seeing things.”

      This is why I continually put Plato on this site. George James had shown that Plato plagiarized “The Republic,” the fundamental and best doctrine of European Philosophy. See here: https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/excerpt-the-authorship-of-the-republic-and-timaeus-from-stolen-legacy-by-george-james/

      I personally showed how Plato’s dialogue on “The Philosopher King” is borrowed from Wa’Set. I show you the line-by-line theft. See here: https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/2012/08/03/platos-philosopher-king-our-cosmic-wisdom-and-onitaset-kumat/

      I also earlier showed how Socrate’s famed “I am wiser than everyone in the world” comes from a poem in Africa. Socrates is famously known for bring “Know Thyself” to the West; very obviously this is a theft. Ironically, his “I am wiser than everyone else” comes from a poem named “Know Thyself.” See here: https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/2011/11/04/plato-and-originalism/

      Finally, with the aid of the writer Asar Imhotep, I show the very definition of Philosophy and you can see how it’s originally from us. See here: https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/2012/03/16/what-is-philosophy-by-asar-imhotep/

      In other words, the concepts and ideas as in the European canon are concepts and ideas taken from African people. To touch on “Spirit” we only need recall that we were once called “Negro.” It’s considered that the etymology of Negro is “Nekh” from KMT, for the Romans learned from the Greeks learned from the Phonecians learned from the Egyptians. The name denotes how African people were more obsessed with the dead than European or Asian people, ergo “Spirit.” See here: https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/2012/03/05/what-was-our-name-halasiou/

      Though I erred and said too much. We are talking about the “Spirit” akin to “Instinct.” This is a deeply African concept. The word that the Egyptians used was “Neter,” the word that the Akan use is “Abasom” and the word that the Yoruba use is “Orisha.” I believe that Marima Ani uses the word “Asili” to represent the same thing. I could use these words, but for one, there isn’t any single one, but otherwise it may more confuse people. I used to write “Hotep” at the start of every article but I changed that. I want our Brothers and Sisters to read, write and rally, not look, rub their heads, then turn on the tube. :)

      I hope that I sufficiently answered this question. Have I?

      I am asking all these questions because I am a bit of a defeatist i.e.despite what I feel, the reality is that they have won for now. It’s not so much that we can free ourselves, rather the relentless movement of time sees things change thus maybe one day we might be free again but certainly not because of the power of our Will to be free, rather by the power of nature to periodically free and enslave people. Weirdly enough, these happens because nature acts through us and everything else, individually and collectively.

      wilson, when I was twenty-one, I was able to personally surpass every European and Asian in history in terms of African Wisdom, discovering the Law of Morality. See: https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/navigate/abs/lore/laws/law-of-morality/

      This is devotion. To borrow from anonymous quotations: “Winners never quit and quitters never win.”

      The means to liberate our people is in African Blood Siblings Community Centers, because it directs our people to a better fate.

      One Sister Dallas, one of my associates in the African Blood Siblings, reported on how another population benefited from a Community Center for their ethnic group:

      Community centers serve as stabilizing forces for the neighborhood. This is why you see so many other groups set them up. Where I live in Upstate NY, groups such as: Guyanese, Dominicans, etc. already have community centers or something akin to one and they have been a force in the area for only a few decades. Blacks in the area are now renting and buying from them. How the hell does this happen?

      See: https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/2012/03/25/the-story-of-rekia-boyd/#comment-739

      It was only thirteen individuals, Marcus Garvey included, who started the UNIA. From there they organized over six million African people. I put it to you that thirteen African people can build an African Blood Siblings Community Center. With that instrument, a Prosperous, Independent African Community can come.

      No need to be pessimistic when the results are replicable. Ask yourself if you will be of the thirteen to create your Community then live in your Community.

      I hope that I sufficiently addressed your concern. Have I?

  6. @ Wilson

    Additionally africa itself has many divisions. It can be brutal and cruel and uncaring. Some people are power hungry, others use and abuse others etc. Also let us go back thousands of years to when africans as a race were glorious; free and independent to self-determine. Something happened and as a result we are where we are now. As you say, the problem isn’t europeans or asians, they just capitalized on something that must have come from within. What are your thoughts as to what this could be?

    Good question.

    Perhaps it was the introduction of Mammon in the African conscious that caused our demise?

    1. Sister truthbetold,

      I had an interesting conversation last night. I had decided to finally see a particular drumming circle and in my travels I came across a concert for a Caribbean island. Its flag was waved by much of the audience and many songs were devoted the nation. Finally, certain women dressed in feathers and colorful designs gyrated on stage, delighting and alluring men and women. On stage, men moved left and right very energetically and some danced on the women. It was a pre-Carnival celebration.

      After leaving the event, I saw a familiar “Elder.” Not knowing how to interact, for I knew not who she was–it turns out she was from another crowd (not the UAM but December 12th), I made the remark that the celebration down that way was a bit “crazy.” She then blasted me for ignorance of history. She dropped the word “Egypt,” and when I attempted to discern what she meant, probably asking “What part of history?” she expressed shame, indignation and even began passing rumors of my ignorance. I took it with a smile: True sages are those who give what they have, without meanness and without secret!

      I then saw another Elder. This one was from the same crowd as me (the UAM). I told him of the other woman. He thought she was ignorant of history. He pointed out how the history of Carnival is lost on most who go. According to him, Carnival was a heightened festivity for when our enslaved ancestors had their day off. Granted Labour Day does fit this description. But the gyrating, it’s unclear when that became a part of Carnival.

      Either way, I find that it all comes back to our misunderstanding of Peace. When the Asians took over Egypt they then attacked Ethiopia and sued for peace. The conditions for peace were such that they would pay us commodities while we would pay them with our people. Eventually, those same traded people bolstered the military of the Asian people. And this happened over and over again in our history.

      The question to me is when did Carnival become about the lowest chakras? Likely it had to do with European commercialism, for if we truly consider the outfits, they may have a tradition in dressing for deities not entertaining with the flesh.

      What are your thoughts?

      1. Onitaset

        Funny you should mention chakras and commercialism. I read a great article about the importance of music in relation to how it affects your chakras, promotes promiscuity and lowers morale. The music that is being promoted today does affect our lower chakras…example:

        my friend sent me this song:

        I listened to it before bed and I tell you, I couldn’t sleep. I felt wired.
        So I re-read the article about how music is being used against blacks to “push” promiscuity, drug abuse and such.
        I agree you you 100%.

        Since the European pushed himself into our culture, we’ve been in a slow decline. Mentally and emotionally. I’m afraid I don’t know much about the true origin of carnival but I will read up on them.

      2. Lil Wayne fits the description of Irresponsible.

        Colourism

        But so do most recognized Africans. It’s up to us to be Responsible. That’s the main message.

        Our ancestors were known as “Blameless Ethiopians.” Blamelessness, or Innocence, relates to doing the Responsible thing–being involved against Evil. We were mislead to think that Responsibility was not personally being an evil doer.
