Fable: The European’s Share

Listen Siblings, I come in peace,

“Man must learn to increase his sense of responsibility and of the fact that everything he does will have its consequences.”African Proverb (KMT)

Have you ever heard of “The Lion’s Share?”  Aesop, an African, had retold many African Fables during his time and one which resurfaced for a modern audience is “The Lion’s Share.”  One translation goes as follows:

The Lion went once a-hunting along with the Fox, the Jackal, and the Wolf. They hunted and they hunted till at last they surprised a Stag, and soon took its life. Then came the question how the spoil should be divided. “Quarter me this Stag,” roared the Lion; so the other animals skinned it and cut it into four parts. Then the Lion took his stand in front of the carcass and pronounced judgment: The first quarter is for me in my capacity as King of Beasts; the second is mine as arbiter; another share comes to me for my part in the chase; and as for the fourth quarter, well, as for that, I should like to see which of you will dare to lay a paw upon it.”

“Humph,” grumbled the Fox as he walked away with his tail between his legs; but he spoke in a low growl .”You may share the labours of the great, but you will not share the spoil.”

Not unlike “The Lion’s Share” however is another Fable known as “The European’s Share.”  This involves a much different hunt; so the outcome too differs.

This Fable differs misorganized and organized.  It teaches how you need to organize.  Every African should be in an organizations; especially one creating African Blood Siblings Community Centers.  Join the ABS if you’d be happy with a Prosperous, Independent African Community.  Subscribe, share, love.

The European’s Share
By Onitaset Kumat

A European once shared a farm with an Asian, a Multi-Racial and an African.  During sowing season, the European planted least, the Asian less than the Multi-Racial and the African the most.  At reaping season, all the produce was bundled in order that the wealth could be shared.

“Quarter me this Harvest,” demanded the European of the African.  So the unfortunate African created four piles of foods which each looked like a quarter of the African’s pile with little sprinkles of the Multi-Racial’s.

After the African finished, the European took a stand before the piles and pronounced:

“This first quarter is mine as the political arbiter of this division.  Naturally, I deserve another share for my economical participation.  I’ll have this third share as my culture is most superior.  Now on this fourth quarter, I feel charitable.  I did the least amount of work, and this African did the most.  I’ll tell you all what!  If any of you can take this pile from my possession, you can have some of it.  No takers?  Well, I guess it’s mine.”

Now but for the food in the Multi-Racial’s refuse, which was the refuse of the Asian’s refuse, which was the refuse of the European’s refuse, the African would starve.  So realizing the harm in racial diversity, the African left for an African farm.  The scene behind was as follows:

After sowing season comes reaping season.  There the same bundling was performed and the same European spoke: “Though the harvest be small, Quarter it!”

The Asian and Multi-Racial looked around until one spoke up, “Why Quarter when only three worked?”

Finally realizing the most important absence, the European rightly became desperate.  And though ergophobic, work became this European’s priority.

Time marched onward and after several sowing and reaping seasons, and sometimes neglect, this same farm was four times as productive as ever.  Each farmer masterfully sowed and now a surplus was shared among African passersby; not even as an incentive for labour but as an extension of familyhood!

An African child who had formerly learned that this farm was least charitable and least productive asked of an Elder whether he should believe his eyes over his ears.  The Elder thought a moment then explained, “When the African stops feeding the European, the European’s share stops feeding the European.”

The innocent youth was puzzled, and asked what any one of similar experiences would, “What’s a European?”

The Elder smiled, pondered than responded, “A European is a sower of death.”

With this, enjoying the charity, the child expressed his happiness to have never known a “sower of death.”  Finally, he spoke with a great wisdom of which all our children are capable, “Blessed are the ancestors who stopped profiting other races!  Ase!”

    1. Hey again Sister Paige.

      It was my pleasure to meet you in Harlem. :)

      Many of us have a love for our people and that’s what matters. I think that it is an example of love to share with our people the jewels of our past and present. I hope you see so too.

      We aim to improve our condition and it requires our Siblinghood and Organization. So thanks for being a Loving Sister and reading, writing and rallying. Write and share more often. :)

      1. Although not quite in Harlem, I am joining with other individuals who have a similar direction. They are slowly coming to focus on self-reliance as must be the case. If people are begging for equality, they will be appesed with words and denied with hands, but if they breal away, then the European willl come banging on the door and protesting against “discrimination”.

      2. It all depends on HOW you Organize. In the ABS, we do not Organize in the same way that would even invite European input. The Units of Organization are African Units and they are the controlling bodies of particular Units doing particular projects in particular parts of the world.


        For instance, suppose in the UK, you want to sell honey and cinnamon to Africans (toward the goal of Racial Independence in Food, Clothing, Shelter and Consciousness). You, as a leader of a Unit, would direct a balance of Political, Economical and Cultural minds toward the sale of these foods. Some of the money goes to you, some of it to headquarters, some of it to the products, some of it to the Unit’s treasury, but in this whole operation, while self-reliant and global in scope, Europeans have NO output; because a Unit meets and speaks privately (to the best privacy one can attain.)

        See, you want to organize, have internal laws, internal functions, and internal roles, this all according to ability. This limits corruption and limits power. Other organizations empower too many and disempower much more. You want to effectively use a small amount of people as a Super Person. That can Liberate our race. Nothing else.
