  • Police Brutality; The Modern Form of Lynching

    Modern-day lynching is done under the guise of lawful policing, under the colour of law. State-sanctioned violence for the subjugation of a people. A system policing a people it was never meant to benefit.

  • The Black Vikings; Hidden By History

    Many of the exploits portrayed by the television series were actually done by the Black Norseman, such as the invasion of Dorset, England in 789 A.D. and Lindisfarne in 793, these were the first recorded Viking raids. The conspiracy here is the blatant omission of these ancient Black warriors to support the colonial and racialist narrative of European supremacy. This omission can not be passed off as accidental, there is simply to much evidence to support not only their existence but their accomplishments. Steeped in Historical records and Eye witness accounts of the time, These Black Norse Legends are worthy of being restored to their rightful place not only in Norse History but also world history.

  • The Ancient Sumerians Were in Fact a Black Civilization

    As it pertains to historical subjects, rarely if ever are we clearly informed as to the racial identity of a people or individuals. You naturally assume they are talking about people like themselves. We have been conditioned to make this assumption, when in fact; most often they are talking about you “Black People”. Whilst they enthusiastically write and fawn over the accomplishments of the ancient Egyptians, Mesopotamian s, Sumerians, and Atlantis; what they fail to tell you is… they were all Black Civilizations.

  • Concentration Camps; the Devils Punch bowl, Americas Dirty Little Secret

    Following the conclusion of the Civil War, Natchez Mississippi experienced an enormous influx of former slaves as new inhabitants. In response, the locals constructed an “encampment.” All the former slaves were gathered and forced to enter, the area walled off and they were refused the option to leave. This encampment after the atrocities were revealed would become known as the “Devils Punch bowl”.

  • The African Origin of European Civilization

    The Moors would rule Spain from 711-1492, 781 years. However, the white invasion of Africa and the Black invasion of Europe cannot be compared. The white invasion of Africa was meant to destroy its people and impoverish Africa. Conversely, the Black invasion of Europe resulted in the enrichment of Europe. The Moors introduced 17 new universities, people from Italy, France, Germany, and other European countries flocked to Spain to learn from the Moors. When the Moors invaded Spain they did not prevent Europeans from speaking their language or destroy their culture. They did not place them in chains, and they did not destroy the concepts they had of themselves. More importantly, The Moors did not miss-educate the Europeans. The White invasion of Africa was the exact opposite.

  • African History; Not Taught in Western Classrooms

    Ancient African civilizations are the foundation of human history. For thousands of years, the world has marveled at the excellence of Africa, its innovations, literature, science, technology, and architecture. Conversely, Africa and her achievements are rarely touted in Western classrooms where they prefer to credit the greatness of Africa to the Greek and Roman cultures. Here we will highlight a few of the interesting facts about Africa that are not taught in Western classrooms.

  • The Importance of African Rites of Passage

    Traditionally African ethnic groups used a complex ceremonial system to convey cultural principals and ideology, as well as the facilitation of the adolescent to adulthood transition. Presently these rites are referred to as rites of passage. Rites of passage critical in nation-building and African socialization. Specifying the contrasting stages of an individual’s development; as well as their relationship and role in the community. It is the promoting of social symbols that give a community its identity and integration of the person into something greater than themselves.

  • Who Do You call When the Murderer wears a Badge

    When the Murderer Wears a Badge; The psychological effect on the black community

    Our skin color has been weaponized and demonized by the dominant society. Black family members fear for their loved ones every time they leave their home. The all too familiar “talk”-counseling them on how to conduct themselves during police interactions, now has to be had with our black children around the age of 12, if not younger. We can “dress” right, “talk” right, drive expensive automobiles and hold six-figure positions and it still is not enough to protect us from a xenophobic police officer determined to violate our humanity. We as black people are under siege in America.

  • The Deeper They Dig: The Blacker The Gods Get

    A close look would reveal the prodigious nations of the world worshipping Black gods both past and present. One would reasonably conclude these nations are Black and brown people, however, this phenomenon was practiced worldwide. The ancient gods of India are shown with Ethiopian crowns on their heads, the god Krishna is described, as “his bodily color resembles the color of a fresh black cloud”. The Sanskrit word “Krishna” has a literal meaning “black, dark”. Krishna is also known as “Syama” the blackish one.
