I generally try to stay away from writing about current events or news, and try to stick to writing on topics that will always be relevant to Black people, past, present and future. But with 2017 and 2018 being such pivotal years for Black people in Amerikka and globally, I would be remiss to not recap the year that was, as well as to look ahead to the year that will be, 21CRM style. So with that said, these are the 6 stories that piqued my interest in 2017 in regards to the future of Black/Afrikan people here in Amerikkka.

“In the great civilizations of antiquity the inspiration of poetry and art came from the Black race. The European organized his civilizations and established their laws and governments, but the source from which their art was issued was foreign to the instincts of the organizing civilizers. That universal power of imagination which we see enveloping and penetrating primordial civilizations came entirely from the ever increasing influxion of blood from the Black race into the white. The African possesses in a high degree, the faculty of emotion from the senses, without which art is impossible.” – Uncredited quote taken from “Introduction to African Civilizations” by Willis N. Huggins and John G. Jackson
I will start this piece with the bold statement that Black/Afrikan people, whether here in Amerikkka, throughout the diaspora, and in the Continent, are without a doubt the most innovative, naturally talented, brilliant and creative people that the world has ever seen. If one was to look around, and see how many things that originated from and were invented by Black/Afrikan people that have become a part of general mainstream culture in which the world would not be the same without, then the truthfulness of that statement would be obvious. Whether we are talking about within the arts/entertainment field, culture, spirituality, food, or even civilization itself, there is reason to believe that without the innovation and creativity of the Afrikan, the rest of humanity might be crawling on all fours, perhaps even literally so. The annals of history is full of stories and testaments to the brilliance, and creative and innovative spirit of Afrikan people. Time and time again, we have also proven to be a resilient people, due in large part to that creativity, who without monetary resources have been able to take discarded scraps and make magic. Black people were able to literally turn parts of an animal that are unwanted, and considered to be barely edible, and make it into fine cuisine. Just the fact that we are still here, and still fighting is a testament to our resilience.

pictured above is Tim Wise, white liberal “anti-racist”, the go-to white person for Black people who want to prove the existence of the mythical “good white person”. He is also an admitted white supremacist, and has called the work of legendary Black psychiatrist, scholar, and author Dr. Frances Cress Welsing, who has done more for Black people then ten Tim Wise’s ever could, “pseudo-scientific bullsh-t”
“In this deceitful American game of power politics, the Negroes (i.e., the race problem, the integration and civil rights issues) are nothing but tools, used by one group of whites called Liberals against another group of whites called Conservatives, either to get into power or to remain in power. Among whites here in America, the political teams are no longer divided into Democrats and Republicans. The whites who are now struggling for control of the American political throne are divided into “liberal” and “conservative” camps. The white liberals from both parties cross party lines to work together toward the same goal, and white conservatives from both parties do likewise.
The white liberal differs from the white conservative only in one way: the liberal is more deceitful than the conservative. The liberal is more hypocritical than the conservative. Both want power, but the white liberal is the one who has perfected the art of posing as the Negro’s friend and benefactor; and by winning the friendship, allegiance, and support of the Negro, the white liberal is able to use the Negro as a pawn or tool in this political “football game” that is constantly raging between the white liberals and white conservatives.
Politically the American Negro is nothing but a football and the white liberals control this mentally dead ball through tricks of tokenism: false promises of integration and civil rights. In this profitable game of deceiving and exploiting the political politician of the American Negro, those white liberals have the willing cooperation of the Negro civil rights leaders. These “leaders” sell out our people for just a few crumbs of token recognition and token gains. These “leaders” are satisfied with token victories and token progress because they themselves are nothing but token leaders.” – Malcolm X

Peace and Blessings,
The use of logic, the ability to be disciplined and focused, and the ability to identify and solve problems are a few concepts and qualities that, if used properly, could be of massive help in neutralizing any issue that may arise in life. This is even true when opposing a system as powerful, complex, ever-evolving and all-encompassing as the system of racism/white supremacy that I assert that all non-whites, but especially Black people are subjected to. Racism/white supremacy as an institution needs an environment of chaos, confusion and dis-logic to survive and thrive, and does not fare well when attacked with logic, which often reveal naked truth. The book, The United Independent Compensatory Code/System/Concept, written by Neely Fuller Jr., venerable elder, author, speaker and what I term as a counter-racist adviser to many, a very innovative one to boot, who has worked for several decades in service of (in his words) eliminating racism/white supremacy and replacing it with a system of justice, attempts to generate badly needed, unconventional, simple, but extremely cogent and well-thought out solutions to what he, I and many others who are aware of racism/white supremacy as a system, refer to as the world’s biggest problem. Mr. Fuller explains that racism/white supremacy is the dominant factor in all areas of people activity (economics, education, entertainment, labor, law, politics, religion, sex and war/counter war), and he is by many accounts the first man to speak of white supremacy as a global system. He dedicates ample time to providing analysis, giving guidance and offering solutions within all of the aforementioned areas.
