Aside from the blatantly obvious reasons, the term white supremacy, as well as the manner in which it is practiced, is an endlessly fascinating and confounding subject. The more it is deeply thought about, the more layers to the subject, as well as the system itself, that there is to unpack. The concept of white supremacy is very interesting in its application because although the term may imply the superiority of the white race, which according to their ideas, gives them the right to rule over all who are not classified as white, the fact that the institution exists is a clear indication of the ultimate falsity of the concept. It is without a doubt that human beings are superior in terms of intellect and complexity of cognitive abilities over other creatures in the animal kingdom. But yet there is no system of “human supremacy” over other creatures in the animal kingdom in order to enforce the concept of that superiority. Such a system is completely unnecessary, because the natural intellectual superiority of human beings over the rest of the animal kingdom just naturally shines through.

My respect for teachings of the late, great Dr. Frances Cress Welsing cannot be understated, and has been reiterated numerous times on this platform. She has introduced many empowering concepts to those who were tuned into her contributions that are never to be forgotten by those who refer to themselves as her intellectual and philosophical children, and I count myself among that number. Recently, her sister and a very inspirational, conscious educator and highly respected elder in her own right, Ms. Lorne Cress Love, made an appearance on the COWS (Context of White Supremacy) radio program to discuss, among other things, the life and times of Dr. Welsing. In this program, Ms. Love and the host Gus T. Renegade referenced a concept called the cosmic assignment that Dr. Welsing referred to in her legendary, game-changing text, The Isis Papers, as well as her many appearances on various radio and television programs and lectures. The cosmic assignment refers to the assignment that was given to her, perhaps by herself, perhaps by some other unknown, maybe unexplained spiritual inspiration, as someone who is very aware of the colossal problems for Black people under the system of racism/white supremacy, and someone who has a serious interest in studying this system in order affect change and produce justice for Black people, to each and every day spend the requisite time and energy doing their part toward finding solutions to THE world’s greatest problem.

“We (Black/Afrikan people) built this country!” That is about as true of a statement as you will ever hear. From the moment that our ancestors touched this at the time unfamiliar land, we were forced to labor, regardless of weather or any other conditions, sometimes in the intense Southern sun, sometimes in the pouring rain, whether we were sick or injured or not, for the financial benefit of our enemies. The free labor, as well as the expertise and intelligence of the enslaved Afrikans, were a veritable goldmine for our heartless captors, as it helped Amerikkka become the world’s primary financial powerhouse within its first 200 years as an official nation. In fact it can be argued that the enslavement of Afrikan people, as well as colonialism, built up much of the wealth of most of the powerful western white nations. I do not think these facts are disputable to anyone familiar with the history. There is a tremendous book entitled “The Half Has Never Been Told”, which breaks down thoroughly how the evil institution of slavery helped shape and enrich Amerikkka in many ways that are under-explored. So it stands to reason that the people who are most responsible for the success of Amerikkka are Black/Afrikan people. But rather than a feeling of pride over what our ancestors “built”, the feelings that come over me as I write this are an intense anger, sadness and disgust. That sadness is only compounded by the fact that the people who seem to have the most pride in the fact that this tree of Amerikkkan prosperity was watered by our ancestors blood, sweat and tears, are our people.

This question was posed on a certain very popular social media platform by a gentleman within the Black Liberation community that I respect greatly and consider an elder. I gave my answer to the question on the platform on which the question was originally posed, but within this space, I’ve decided to expand my answers within the full scope of my actual thoughts.
From being the victims to the worst crime in human history, to the resulting Jim Crow restrictions on our personal freedoms, to the horrific, animal-like games that were played with our gene pool by way of breeding farms, to the rape of Black/Afrikan women which helped destroy the psyche of Afrikan people forever, to an anti-intellectual culture being forced upon black people, caused by the restrictions and extreme harsh punishments for reading, writing, learning, and just being generally curious about life, which are the most natural ways of taking in information and expanding our intelligence, with every single effort to rebuild our people, from reconstruction, to Black Wall Street, to Garvey, being systematically destroyed, to being the targets of a vicious propaganda campaign against us, which has not only turned the whole world against us, but most tragically, has turned us against us, the havoc that had been wrought against our people is endless. With the long list of atrocities that were committed against Black/Afrikan people, I think it is rather obvious what my answer is to this question. And to illustrate my point, I’d like to use a brief scan of history which, as Malcolm X so eloquently stated, of all studies is best qualified to reward our research.
