“When you teach a boy, you teach a person; but when you teach a girl, you educate a nation.” — African Proverb
Teaching a girl used to mean teaching a nation, but under European and Asian Domination, teaching a girl is just teaching a girl. It’s not even teaching a ‘person’ because most of what she learns she forgets. This is detrimental for a people who rely upon Maternal Wisdom to survive. Africa has a population of a billion people and there are less than one-hundred million Africans in the Western Hemisphere. Not all of Africa is African. So maybe there is 700 million Africans in the World; maybe only a billion. Globally that means we are outnumbered between seven-and-nine-to-one. We had global supremacy before. Whatever we are doing today we are doing wrong. It’s been time to Organize. One reform is Education. Yet their “Education” is leading us to Genocide. We have “Free” Public “Education” why? The hint is where was your Mother when you did your homework, what was your impression of Africa when you graduated and who taught you to add fractions? Either we make our own answers to this or another people will; and their answers Mis-Organize us into Self-Genocide.
How “Free” Public Education Harms African Motherhood
By Onitaset Kumat
The safest place in a community should be its Community Center. The second safest place should be its homes. Inasmuch as men, endowed by our Creator as more capable warriors, should be the most engaged in warfare and hence the most endangered members of a community, the Community Center and the homes are the domain of women and children. As women share their space with children, the burden of childhood education primarily falls upon her. In African Communities of today as designed by Europeans and Asians this scheme of things is non-existent.
The first traumatizing experience for most African children is their placement into a Mis-Education System (an Education system designed by non-African people.) From that point forward, a wedge is drawn between the African child and her Mother and as the child advances in her “mis-studies” she retreats from her Mother. More devious, as existinginexile puts it, “THE SCHOOL was set up to teach us to worship White Women. The first school you attend will likely be run by white women. There will be a white School Mistress and white female teachers. We learn to listen to, respect and adore white women from childhood… and this belief system remains with us into adulthood.” As to say, the child spends her formative years socializing about pleasing a seemingly wise and powerful European or Asian woman while her African Mother is in the background of her classroom, homework and educational experiences.
On the surface, to those who partook in the mis-education system, this predicament is harmless. To many, the cost of modernity is worth the gadgets and the “freedom.” It’s hard to deny a wedge between Mother and child; it’s hard to deny the worship of White women from African boys and girls; it’s hard to deny our Mothers were in the background of our educational experiences; yet it’s easy to say, given whose mis-education informs us of Africa, “At least we’re not in Africa.” Nothing in Nature grows optimally outside of its Environment. Nothing. The lesson “At least we’re not in Africa” is the most repeated lesson in Public School European or Asian. In the European’s case, she teaches History from Greece forward, she teaches Math from Italy forward, she teaches Science from Galileo forward, she teaches Fashion from France forward, she teaches Literature from Shakespeare forward and she teaches Technology from the Industrial Revolution forward. Despite that History, Math, Science, Fashion, Literature and Technology started and peaked in Africa, the European teaches herself and our children that they all started and peaked with Europeans. The trauma of the African child is reinforced when her Mother approves of this Mis-Education, for even worse than the White woman teaching African inferiority, the Mother’s approval teaches the biggest lie I know “White is Alright.”
Unknown to most of us, History began and peaked in Africa among African people. During Ancient times, Africans were the World Power not only in Africa but in Asia, Europe and the Americas too. Africa’s reign spans tens-of-thousands of years, one-hundred times modern America’s reign. And the world, inasmuch as Africans were concerned, was in peace. In Ancient Times, this peace was challenged by Europeans and Asians and after a thousand-years of Warfare African Power was lost. Going from a state of a hundred-thousand-year peace under African Power to thousands of years of War under European and Asian Power, “White is Alright” is a terrible lie for an African Mother to teach her child. Yet as she hands her child over to Europeans and Asians, the child learns not only “White is Alright” but coupled with lessons of African Inferiority “White is Right.” Thereafter the African Mother is an embarrassment to the African child. Because the education was “free” the African Mother lost the love of her child for the rest of her life.
The African child is not the only person to learn “White is Alright;” the African Mother learns it too. Her reasoning differs from her child’s. To her, the European and Asian provides a “free” “Education.” Truthfully, the “Education” is not “free” but tax-supported. Yet to the African Mother who pays her taxes the “Education” is free and the school-provided breakfasts and lunches are free. Africans today brag about how the Black Panther Party of the 1960s and 70s provided free breakfasts for African children thus leading the Public Education system to co-opt their program. Yet this goes to show how deeply confused “White is Alright” made us. We demand Education and Breakfast be free. Yet this demand reflects a backward (and dangerous) thought process which dictates that neither the Education nor the Survival of her child should cost the African Mother anything. This partly explains why this very article you are reading doesn’t cost you anything.
It is at the University level when Education begins to cost something, yet even at this juncture, the Education costs the child more than it does the Mother. At no point under European or Asian domination does the African Mother have to pay a reasonable amount for her child’s Education. Certainly field trips, graduation gowns and library fees are economical demands made on African Mothers with younger children, and textbooks, activity fees, applications and travel expenses are requested from older children, but that cost is miniscule compared against other people’s expenses and compared to what the costs should be to each African Mother. Her trouble, however, begins with her refusal to Organize a Educational System for her child.
I would be the last to say that the African Woman never Organized an Educational establishment for her child since the Maafa. In this newsletter alone, I record the Educational Programs of the Mumininas of Committee for United NewArk as well as the brilliant Marva Collins and Marimba Ani. However when we realize that African World Power will be brought about by African People and African Genocide is the aim of Europeans and Asians, who now outnumber Africans 7-9 to 1, the effort to African Self-Education isn’t strong enough. It also stands to reason that until that effort is strong enough “African Motherhood” will continue to be an insignificant appellation to the masses of African people. We have work to do. As the Poem I penned long ago proclaims, we must “Pay for what we need.”
 existinginexile also wrote “THE CHURCH was set up to teach us to worship White Men. Jesus is presented as a white man. His 12 disciples are white men. The Christian God is a white God. We learn to honour, respect and obey the written words of white men from childhood… and this belief system remains with us into adulthood.” I commented there (as Onitaset) “Ironically enough, African women are more present in Churches and Schools (going back at least a century).”
 Every African working for Europeans are forced to pay taxes. That comes to 98% of working Africans in most European dominated societies.

 Maafa is Kiswahili for “Disaster.” Marimba Ani uses the term to refer to the beginning of African Enslavement under Europeans. This isn’t to absolve the Enslavement of Africans under Asians which is ongoing to this day.
