“African-Nationalism is not a School of Thought but an Organization of Action” — Onitaset Kumat
As long as we fail to recognize that African-Nationalism is more than a point-of-view and actually requires the claimant to involve him- or herself in organization, members of our Race are doomed to a lack of Nationhood and thus a lack of Power. A Nation organizes it’s Food, Clothing, Shelter and Consciousness. The moment a Nationalist is worthless in these avenues, that Nationalist forfeits his or her instrumentality and necessity. The African in European Nations holds no Power. The African Nation is near non-existent. We need more African-Nationalists.
For the African Blood Siblings, the African Nationalists needs to fulfill these Seven Qualifications to truly Organize African Food, Clothing, Shelter and Consciousness.
The Seven Qualifications of an African-Nationalist
By Onitaset Kumat
- A Conviction that African should be the sole leaders of African people in Africa and the Diaspora; a Resolve against Dependency.
- A Conviction that Africans should have social settings free of Non-Africans and Non-African Ideas; a Resolve against Integration.
- A Conviction that Africans should be able and willing to produce everything they are able and willing to consume; a Resolve against Impoverishment.
- A Conviction that Africans Leaders and Liberators need to be developed through time and struggle; a Resolve against Impatience.
- A Conviction that Africans should be about Race first and Race only; a Resolve against Individualism.
- A Conviction that African Sexuality is strictly between an African Man and African Woman; a Resolve against Imbalance.
- A Conviction that Africans should solely adhere to African Spiritual Systems; a Resolve against Mimicry.
Our revolution is not a public-speaking tournament. Our revolution is not a battle of fine phrases. Our revolution is not simply for spouting slogans that are no more than signals used by manipulators trying to use them as catchwords, as codewords, as a foil for their own display. Our revolution is, and should continue to be, the collective effort of revolutionaries to transform reality, to improve the concrete situation of the masses of our country.
