Great Writing: White people and their Systems of Governance and Control by Diallo Kenyatta @diallokenyatta #diallokenyatta #blacklivesmatter

There’s something I think we are missing as we assert that #BlackLivesMatter to White people and their Systems of Governance and Control.

When we say that #BlackLivesMatter, and we struggle to demonstrate that we are worthy of more than economic deprivation, brutal homicidal policing, substandard education, subhuman portrayals in the media, and all the other degrading conditions and practices the System subjects us to; when we assert that we are worthy of being treated as human-beings we are attacking the very self identity of White people. We are targeting their collective self identity; which is founded on Blacks being less-than, subhuman, savage, and criminal.

As we tell Whites that we are fully human, we seem to overlook that they’ve established a Global System of Governance, Culture, Economics, and Self-Identity based on denying our humanity. For Africans to be fully human it would render White people, their institutions and systems inhumane or anti-human; it would render all that Whites have built since they emerged from Europe and imposed themselves on the world, and every thing they’ve done and accomplished an illegitimate or criminal act. It would demonstrate that their wealth is stolen, that their oppression of us is not about justice but about sustaining an illegitimate system, it would literally render Whites as Savages, hi-tech Savages.

So, criminalizing and depriving us is crucial to their System, and even more importantly it is crucial to the White self-identity. If you study human behavior you will see that losing your identity is worse than death, people will fight harder for their identities than they will for their lives or the lives of their loved ones. A people will not surrender their identity if you ask them, not even if it means they will die if the don’t.

For Whites to be human they must see us, and render us to be subhuman. They create conditions that drive us to dysfunction, then they shame and punish us for our predicted responses to the conditions they imposed.

In their minds, Whites didn’t invade the world and kill billions, they explored the world and brought civilization, they didn’t enslave our ancestors, they saved them from starvation and backwardness in African (the starvation and backwardness that they imposed), Cops are not killing the elderly, children, and Black citizens, they are protecting society from thugs, scum, criminals, and degenerations. They are not bombing people communities in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa, they are bombing terrorist (terrorist they armed, funded, and trained). It goes on like this throughout Western History.

Our humanity, survival, and advancement puts us in direct conflict with White Self-Identity; thus there can be no reform, no law, no policy that will change the fundamental practices of this system and how it treats us. Just study all the Constitutional Amendments, laws, and reforms that have been imposed since the Reconstruction Era; no matter how hard we fight, and how many laws the government passes, we always end up right back here; Blacks being abused and dehumanized, Whites asserting that it is their right (or lawful) to abuse and dehumanize us.

Now, you #NewNegros, I know yall just gon accuse me of attacking your beloved White folks, and blaming them for Black people’s self imposed problems, I know yall think Black people are inherently fucked up or dysfunctional, but there are many Whites who have done the research and reached the same conclusions.

These White scholars has confessed that “the European’s relationship with the planet earth and its other inhabitants has been akin to the effects that a virus or cancer has on a living organism.” Some of them have understood that “Western Culture has a Death Urge,” an unquenchable drive to kill everything. Now these Whites who tell the truth about Western Culture and its impacts are driven out of White Institutions and are rarely allowed on White Media, so we don’t know of them, but if you are sincere about understanding the state of the world, and you do research, you will find these scholars and their writings. I did.

So, as Dr. Khalid Muhammad and Chancellor Williams both articulated; there can be no peace, integration, or even civil relations between Africans and Whites; Williams wrote that Whites are our “eternal, bitter enemy, our implacable foe.” These are sober conclusions, not hateful rantings.

Whites ostracize, incarcerate, or kill other Whites who recognize the humanity of Black people, so how do we expect to convince the White masses to accept our humanity, or our human rights, or our right to live without being attacked, molested, mutilated, exposed to toxic substances, raped, mass incarcerated, mocked, degraded, and exploited?

Some, like Malcolm X who understood this asserted that we need separation, but because the pollutions, nuclear fallout, and ecocide don’t recognize national borders, there is no way to separate form the impacts of White Aggression.

Some, like Derrick Jensen assert that the Whites who understand the impacts and ultimate trajectory of Western Culture asserts that they consciously and deliberately destroy (Western) Civilization, employing all means at their disposal, from protest to armed insurrection. The problem is, we are being killed and oppressed as such a rate that there could possibly be no African left by the time this solution is fully actualized.

Some like Thom Hartmann assert that Campaign Finance Reform!, and ending Corporate Person-hood is the answer, but we’ve seen Whites impose progressive reforms in the US and Western Europe in the past yet maintain their oppressive and genocidal policies against Black people.

Some, like Dr Claud Anderson assert that we should organize and secure the needed resources and institutions to live fully dignified lives using Group Based Economics, fight for and secure Reparations, and defend ourselves legally from oppression and White Aggression. This appears to be viable on the surface, but it ignores the fact that Whites have repeatedly violated their own laws and policies when Blacks organized to take full advantage of those laws and policies. Like Mos Def Official said, “we start keeping pace they start changing up the tempo.”

Some like Obama and AG Lynch assert they we must obey the law no matter how it is enforced on our communities, and only protest atrocities according to how those who commit the atrocities allow us to.

Some say to “wait on, and trust in God,” some say “vote,” some say “get yours, do you, get money, fuck niggaz, fuck hoez, and fuck the world,” some say “education,” some say “Black businesses,” some say “free you mind,” as your body is targeted and full of industrial chemicals.

As you engage the struggle, you will be fed so many responses and solutions.

I will not even get into the solutions I embrace (but they are articulated throughout my post if you care to look or unite with me), I just want to offer this insight, because we are yet again forced to face what we generally are able to overlook; that we are a hated, surround, and oppressed population under an ongoing policy of repression and genocide; with little to no capacity to defend ourselves or secure justice in this system.

The slow genocide we are being subjected to has had a portion of the cover pulled back, and we are Reacting, and will continue to React until the small corner of the larger agenda that’s been revealed is cover over again. I’m sure it will be covered by the hoopla surround the Money vs. Pac-Man fight, or some other Bread and circuses-type event.

I need us to understand what we are up against, and why our oppression has survived for so many generations, it ain’t because we Black, but because they Lack, it is because they are White.

And again, if you are so indoctrinated in self-hatred and self-rejection that you conclude that I’m posting this to make excuses for “no-good Niggaz,” then look at what Whites say when they are being honest about who they are and why they do what they do.

I’ve learned most of what I know about Whites from talking to and reading Whites, and I don’t discourage you from doing the same. Understanding Whites will make us more effective in our struggles than hating Whites. And if you already love Whites, the best thing you can do for them is to struggle to remove them form power, because they will not survive Global White Domination either, more and more Whites appear to be coming to this understanding.

(Note: This is not about your personal relationship with White individuals, this is about the sum total impacts and affects of hundreds of years of Western Culture and History. We all know Whites who are are powerless, more ignorant than Black people about how the world works, or that we are cool with, none of that impacts what’s being said here, or what we as a people need to do. Don’t allow the fact that you like, love, or are related to a White person demobilize or paralyze you. I’m tired of getting caught up in debates about the goodness of individual Whites as we work to understand and counter the Global Omnicidal Systems and Institutions of White Domination.) by diallokenyatta

Thank you to all who have checked in on me and sent condolences regarding the passing of my Grandmother Samella Lewis. I appreciate all of the love and support. Our family had been preparing for this inevitability, but still It’s saddening not to have her here with us in the physical form. She will be missed immensely. My heart is with all of those effected by her transition. We know though that she is happy to be free, and we are grateful for her blessing us with life and for sharing her life with us and all of the other people she has impacted during her stay here. Her spirit and teachings carry on and her legacy continues through all of us. Much love

#repost: Samella Lewis was an American visual artist and art historian. She has been called the “Godmother of African American Art”.

She was the first female African American to earn a doctorate in fine art and art history. Her work included creating art, teaching, and was one of the founders of the Museum of African-American Art in Los Angeles to name a few. Her Legacy Will Live On.

I was honored to capture some moments of Ms. Lewis with family and other artists. (These are Just a FEW photos) by Renata Gray

Respect and Condolences to Unity Lewis and Family on the Passing of his Grandmother Great Artist Samella Lewis

#REPOST: Black people are over represented in all chronic & infectious diseases, & premature death categories, this didn’t start with, nor will it end with #Covid19!
Our poor health & shortened lifespans are not biological in origin they are social & political, they are due to Oppression, Racism, Capitalism, Imperialism, & WYT Domination. Our (Mental & Physical) health is tied our Liberation, to the quality & depth of our Revolutionary Struggle.
We cannot piecemeal our movements because all of our issues are intertwined; Health, Violence, Poverty, Subhuman Living Conditions, Miseducation, etc. They are all byproducts of Oppression & can only be remedied by Pan-Africanist Revolution & Socialism.
