The Combinatorics of Blackness

In the Service of our Ancestors and African Love,
Listen Seeker, I come in peace,

“The first concerning the ‘secrets’: all cognition comes from inside; we are therefore initiated only by ourselves, but the Master gives the keys.” — African Proverb

What does an all-Black Public School and a Plantation have in common? White Masters, White Teachings and Black Disciples! In every learning environment there are three components: The Master, the Teachings, and the Disciple. Each component has two varieties: Black (Order) or White (Disorder). Three components with two varieties each equate to eight different learning environments. Yet which learning environment is most frequent for African people in America? Black Masters and Black Teachings? No.

In the following article, I review the eight different learning environments, their frequencies and whether they are Black or White. What one learns is the Blackness or Whiteness of a learning environment depends not on its Disciples but on its Masters and Teachings, yet we call schools “Black” when their leadership and lessons are White. We need a better grasp of reality.

The Combinatorics of Blackness
By Onitaset Kumat

Black Master, Black Teachings, Black Disciples

Frequency: Uncommon
Rating: Black (Order)
Examples: African Initiation Camp
Comment: Though uncommon, this learning environment is the only Black Learning Environment for Black people. Every Black Person should Seek or Develop an institution with a Black Master, Black Teachings and Black Disciples. Absent of this, our people are immersed in White Learning Environments. Members of the African Blood Siblings create Meetings and Community Centers which provide Black Learning Environments to Black people. See here for a template of our Meetings.

Black Master, Black Teachings, White Disciples

Frequency: Very Rare
Rating: Black (Order)
Examples: Ancient African Public Universities
Comment: One of Aesop’s Fables, sometimes named “The Cat-Maiden,” relates the story of a Cat turned into a Maiden. Though she gave the appearance of a Maiden, at the sight of a mouse she pounced. The moral was Nature never changes. Whereas Ancient African Universities were Black Learning Environments for White people, the nature of Whites never changed. In Ancient Greece Imhotep was worshipped as a Black God. The Ancient Greeks also slaughtered our Ancient Ancestors. This learning environment should be avoided.  White people in Black Learning Environments began the Great Race War.

Black Master, White Teachings, Black Disciples

Frequency: Very Common
Rating: White (Disorder)
Examples: African-Run Religious Institutions
Comment: The Church, the Mosque, the Synagogue, the Public School katha wa katha are each White Learning Environments, the Black Pastor, Iman, Rabbi, or Teacher notwithstanding. In the West, this White Learning Environment is very common. White Teachings abound in Black Communities, particularly through so-called Religious and so-called Educational Institutions. These are there to produce disorder in our Communities.  For instance, kneeling before a White looking Man and calling him your “Divine” Master is a sure sign of a defeated Black Race.  In Africa the proverb “When the ax entered the forest, the trees said, “Look, the handle is one of us!”” can be used to reflect the religiously devout.

Black Master, White Teachings, White Disciples

Frequency: Very Rare
Rating: White (Disorder)
Examples: Ancient African Rulers in Europe
Comment: While Very Rare there were periods of time when Africans ruled in Europe or Asia or the Americas and instead of continuing our Ancient practices they did according to the locals. Whereas the Moors, some Ancient Roman Emperors or even some Renaissance leaders were African, these are examples of White Learning Environments given their White Teachings.

White Master, Black Teachings, Black Disciples

Frequency: Very Rare
Rating: White (Disorder)
Examples: European Rulers in Ancient Africa
Comment: European Rulers in Ancient Africa happened as well as African Rulers outside of Africa, and certainly some European Rulers did as the locals did. Yet notwithstanding, a White Master makes a White Learning Environment. Even surrounded with African Influence, these Europeans have their Nature which will be against ours.

White Master, Black Teachings, White Disciples

Frequency: Common
Rating: White (Disorder)
Examples: European Secret Societies
Comment: European Secret Societies are Common and utilize Black Teachings for their Order. Despite the Black Teachings, however, these are White Learning Environments, obviously corrupted by the Disorder of the European Masters.

White Master, White Teachings, Black Disciples

Frequency: Very Common
Rating: White (Disorder)
Examples: Public Schools in Predominately Black Areas
Comment: Public Schools whether with Black or White teachers are White Learning Environments. It’s more likely that the teacher will be White than Black however. Despite that the Teachings and the Masters are White, many of our people are convinced that this is a Black Learning Environment. For example, we refer to a Public School with a Predominately Black Population as a Black School. This is far, far from the truth. It’s a White School. If the Master and the Teachings are White, it’s one of the Whitest Schools one can have.  Similar White Learning Environments with White Masters, White Teachings and Black Disciples are Plantations and Prisons.  In modern lingo “Prison culture” is Black yet clearly the whole system is White.  We are confused.

White Master, White Teachings, White Disciples

Frequency: Very Common
Rating: White (Disorder)
Examples: Public Schools in Predominately White Areas
Comment: While very common, this is irrelevant to the Black experience. White Master, White Teachings, White Disciples, it’s White. It’s worth noting that the existence of this school was challenged by integrationists, welcoming the Disorder of Whites into Black Life. A sad struggle in our history that costs us Africa.

  1. I really enjoyed reading the different outcomes when we have whites as our Masters and Teachers.

    What I found most interesting were the first and last examples… the first being Black Master, Black Teachings, Black Disciples where there is ORDER… and the last example – White Master, White Teachings, White Disciples where there is DISORDER.

    It just goes to show how harmonious we are when together but disordered when apart, while white people are never harmonious even when with their own kind. This sheds much light on our inability to organise when we follow White Teachings irrespective of the race of the person who teaches us because the teachings are the thoughts and opinions of a White Master. Hence, in order for Africans to organise successfully, we must exclude all those who are not African.

    1. Peace Queen-Mother,

      You are very right. It is an interesting observation you made. All White remains Disorder. We see this in their Historical Legacy. “All-White” is the Dark Ages. Who will dispute this?

Please ask any questions that come to mind
