Group Pushes For Reparations

NC Group Pushes for Reparations Promise from Presidential Candidates 

(Durham NC) For many years , the case for reparations for African Americans has been a controversial topic. Unfortunately, it is never brought up as a serious  topic for debate during the presidential election season. However, with the current heated racial climate in this country following the controversies created over such racially explosive issues as the murder of African Americans by the police and the Confederate flag, the issue is re-emerging with vigor this election season.

Spearheading the effort is  the Moorish Science Temple of America in Durham NC. The group has started a campaign to make sure that the topic of the reparations due to  African Americans because of chattel slavery is front and center during the presidential debates.

The group is going to demand that  all candidates running for political office whether Republican, Democrat or Independent  support the distribution of reparations to African Americans.

Black Minds Matter Challenge

Soon, we will embark on another school year and people are making their last minute preparations to make sure their children are prepared to receive an excellent education. However, one of the problems that  has, continuously,  plagued us is the lack of Black History being taught in the public school systems , not only in North Carolina but in cities across this country. Seems like the only information about black history that our children receive is during black history month. And then it is limited to the obligatory stories about Dr. Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks.

Well. I am tired of just complaining about the problem. This school year, I am issuing the Black Book Challenge. Instead of just whining about the lack of Black/African centered education in the school system, I am challenging everyone to read one book on black/African history along with their children each month.

I am also, challenging citizens, businesses, churches etc to conduct free book giveaways to make sure that every child (and adult) in their community has a book in their hands. 

We are also asking that Hip Hop artists, television and radio personalities and all others with a platform to help us promote the Black Book Challenge.

One of the things that we have been doing in Durham, NC for over eight years is a "street institution", whereby, every Sunday we go into a neighborhood that we adopted and;pass out information about our black heritage. This year, I am asking you to do the same.

While many are chanting the now familiar slogan "Black Lives Matter" it is important that we remember that "Black Minds Matter," as well.

Black Minds Matter

For years ,members of the African American community have complained about the lack of Black History education in the school system. Many say that black history is only taught during Black History Month. This year a NC minister is doing something about it.

Minister  Paul Scott, founder of the Durham NC based Messianic Afrikan Nation ministry is issuing a “Black Book Challenge” to educators, churches , parents etc to encourage youth to read one book about black history per month this school year.   He is also asking that parents set an example by joining young people in the challenge.

“While many parents are putting the latest sneakers on their children’s feet, I challenge them to put some black history in their heads, Scott said.

For the past eight years, Scott has spent his Sunday afternoons passing out information about Black history to the Durham residents. This year he is urging members of the Durham community to flood Durham’s streets with books.

“We can’t depend on the school system to teach our children their history, we have to do it ourselves, says Scott.

Scott also says that he uses black history as a weapon to stop violence.
Malcolm X once said it’s either “the ballot or the bullet” but we say “the book or the bullet.”

He hopes that teachers will join in the challenge along with their students and that area churches will hold free book giveaways.

“People are saying that “Black lives matter” but we have to teach our children why their lives matter so we say “Black Minds matter.”

Straight Outta Con-Man

Straight Outta Con Man:
Exposin’ the Truth About NWA
                      Min. Paul Scott

“Fool me one time shame on you/Fool me twice can’t put the blame on you”“
                No Role Modelz-  J Cole

I’d be lying to myself and you if I said that the trailer for the new NWA (N*** With Attitude)  movie, “Straight Outta Compton” didn’t make me wanna stand in  line and drop 10 bucks to see the flick.  The trailer suggests that the film centers around a group of young men  experiencing the trials and tribulations of being black in America during the 80’s, who used their fame  to become the official spokes-homies of the ‘hood.   In the  aftermath of the deaths of  Mike Brown, Sandra Bland,  Samuel DuBose and numerous others who died mysteriously after confrontations with CWA (Cops With Attitude)  ,  who wouldn’t want to see a film about a bunch of rappers throwing up their middle fingers in the face of authority and inspiring a generation of black youth to become revolutionists ?
Interesting story, indeed.  But it’s just not the story of NWA.

The real story of NWA goes more like this…”During a period in the late 80’s when rap artists like  Public Enemy and Boogie Down Productions were succeeding in getting a nation of millions to stop selling crack and to stop killing each other, out of nowhere a group of rappers came along and destroyed  the foundation that they were building and leaving as their  legacy the broken bodies and shattered dreams  of millions of black men and grieving mothers...

For those of us who  were fortunate enough to live through the Reagan/Bush Era, we know the truth. The problems facing African Americans in 2015, are no  different from the problems that we faced during the 80’s with police brutality, white on black violence,  black on black violence etc.  And just like during the 80’s, when black political awareness was rising here comes  NWA again to lower the intelligence bar and turn potential revolutionists into apolitical  thugs.

I must admit, the way the music  industry used NWA was wickedly, brilliant.  While Public Enemy was trying to save black lives, they created a group  to destroy them.  So NWA’s  two politically  aware songs served  only as a Trojan Horse to bring people into the real agenda, profitizing the destruction of the  black community.

Matter of fact, NWA did not even deny the nefarious plot to overthrow conscious Hip Hop with gangsta-ism .They bragged about it!
According to  Vibe magazine writer, Cheo Hodaria Coker, Dr. Dre even admitted that NWA was created to be an alternative to music that promoted black power. So. this was no accident.

No one is denying that F*** the Police set a new standard in articulating the frustrations of young black men who were constantly being harassed by the cops . But the problem is, if you take “F*** the Police (and the contradictory Express Yourself)  out of the equation , what are you left with?  You are stuck with two albums and one EP that glorified black death and misogyny and inspired rappers of subsequent generations to follow their lead. Just listen to  “She Swallowed it” off of their second album where the Pied Pipers of Pedifphellia rapped about the  sexual gang bang of a 14 year old girl and the other subject matter did not really differ from that formula.

Now, there are some who would argue that NWA was not  really a symbol of black genocide. But that’s just like saying  that the Confederate Flag was not  really a symbol of white racism.  So, we are clearly dealing with revisionist history.

Now, ultimately,  I don’t blame five black kids from the hood  for  hatching such a genocidal plot, I blame the music  industry and in this case Jerry Heller, who is credited as being one of the co-founders of NWA. In my opinion, Heller is a war criminal and should be charged with war crimes against the African American community.

In his autobiography, Ruthless, a Memoir, Heller even confesses that based on the historical conspiracies  by the “powers that be”  to exterminate black people, “ if these conspiracies are true...then Eazy E and I were just pawns of C.I.A machinations too vast to contemplate.”

Therefore, if Eazy, Dre,  Cube, Ren and Yella are  guilty of anything, it is the sacrifice of young black lives on the altar of  the Synagogue  of Satan for the reward of riches beyond  their wildest dreams.
So, no I won’t be watching Straight Outta Compton and if you care anything about the state of Black America, neither should you. We cannot allow history to repeat itself where the revolutionary spirit of black youth is channeled into self destructive behaviours and the “enemy” ultimately becomes other black men.
Instead of spending our money on Straight Outta Compton , we should be buying books to teach the youth  about The Black Panthers  and other revolutionists who really stood up against police brutality.
The blood of the thousands of young men who died over the last 25 years trying to be “N**** demands it !

Boycott NWA Movie

Accusing NWA of being responsible for the destruction of a generation of young African Americans, a NC minister is calling for a boycott of the new NWA biopic movie  “Straight Outta Compton”.

Although the movie is not scheduled to be released until August 14, Minister  Paul Scott founder  of the Durham NC based Messianic Afrikan Nation says that the trailers for the movie are exploiting the emotions and racial tensions created by the recent deaths of African Americans such as Mike Brown , Sandra Bland, Samuel Dubose and numerous others who died mysteriously after run ins with CWA (Cops With Attitude) by painting a  false narrative of the true history of the group.

According to Scott, the group’s “political” song “F*** the Police” was just a Trojan Horse that lured people into the real agenda of profitizing black death. And the group’s song “She Swallowed It” about the sexual  gang bang of a 14 year old girl is more indicative of NWA catalog.

Although he does not totally excuse the members of NWA, Scott says the majority of the blame goes to the music industry, including white co-founder Jerry Heller who Scott refers to as  a “war criminal who should be brought up on charges of war  crimes against the African American community for his role in our genocide.”

Scott says that the only thing that the five young black men from Compton are guilty of is “sacrificing the lives of millions of black youth on the altar of the Synagogue of Satan for the reward of blood money beyond their wildest dreams.”

Scott is urging people not to support the movie but instead use the money to buy books to teach the youth about The Black Panther Party and other revolutionists who truly fought against police brutality.

How About an Assata Monument?

North Carolina governor, Pat McCrory  recently upset a lot of folk when he signed the Historic Artifact and Patriotism Act. The act, basically, says that you can't remove that smiling statue of the old  KKK member down the street all willy-nilly. The removal will now require a thumbs up by the NC General Assembly.

But what really got my attention was the response of the Governor's Press Secretary Graham Wilson, who according to WTVD, dissed and dismissed the criticisms with " Our discussions should be centered around the addition of new monuments that will reflect the diversity of the individuals and events that shaped North Carolina."

This may come as a shock..But actually I agree with him.

Let's add some new monuments and give the old rusty Confederate statues some brand new neighbors.

I suggest that first on the guest list should be a few unsung African American heroes and heroines with ties to the Tar Heel state.

Let's start with David Walker who was born in Wilmington in 1785. His work "Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World" was so inflammatory that historians have suggested that it may have inspired Nat Turner's bloody  slave revolt of 1831.

Or what about Robert Williams  born in 1925 in Monroe North Carolina who wrote the book "Negroes With Guns"  and advocated armed self defense while many black folk were advocating nonviolence ?

And last but not least,  there is Assata Shakur who was born in New York but was raised in Wilmington. Shakur, former member of the Black Liberation Army was sentenced to prison in the early 70's in connection with the murder of a New Jersey State trooper. She is currently in exile in Cuba. I would love to see a statue of Assata Shakur holding an AK-47 smack dab in the middle of the NC State Capitol grounds.

Let's all contact Governor McCrory's office and tell him that we accept his office's challenge and we would like to see statues of Walker, Williams and Shakur erected immediately, in the heart of downtown Raleigh. It's gonna be kinda like a Black Power Mt. Rushmore.

So, yes, I agree with Graham Wilson, tell the Confederate statues to move over...

Guess who's coming to dinner ?
