Nu Afrikans Looking Ahead to 2014: Problems and Solutions-Doc

  1. 1. NU AFRIKANS LOOKING AHEAD TO 2014: PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS Please Note: As we have committed ourselves to the task of educating a Nation, the audience I am targeting in any given asset shapes the orientation of what and how I present. I realize that users of RBG Communiversity are a very diverse collective comprising artist. poets, authors, students, teachers, scholars, activist, progressives, revolutionaries, and members of the masses-young and old. Balancing the interests of one’s peers in a given discipline or on a specific topic while at the same time striking a responsive chord with the masses of New Afrikans is always tricky. One can be too academic and alienate the masses, and one can be too simplistic and come across as too shallow and not well informed, thus not to be taken seriously. Striking a balance that meets all needs for clarity on the urgency of the situation we find ourselves in has entailed a careful combination of old and new ideas, and the use of language in a way that is comprehendible to all. This capsule represents RBG Communiversity’s take, by way of RBG Street Scholar, on “NEW AFRIKAN PROBLEMS ANS SOLUTIONS IN THE 21ST CENTURY HELLS OF NORTH AMERICA “ http://rbgblakademics.blogspot.com/ NU AFRIKANS LOOKING AHEAD TO 2014: PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS 1|P a g e

WHY ARE WE STILL VICTIMS OF POLITICAL DISENFRANCHISMENT? WHY ARE WE STILL VICTIMS OF ECONOMIC EXPLOITATION? WHY ARE WE STILL THE VICTIMS OF SOCIAL DEGRADATION?

  3. 3. “WHATTHEPROBLEMIS” WIT MOST BLK FOLX? The problem with most Afrikans in Amerikkka is akin to Stockholm syndrome, or capture–bonding. It is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending them. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness.  Stockholm syndrome can be seen as a form of traumatic bonding, which does not necessarily require a hostage scenario, but which describes “strong emotional ties that develop between two persons where one person intermittently harasses, beats, threatens, abuses, or intimidates the other.” One commonly used hypothesis to explain the effect of Stockholm syndrome is based on Freudian theory. It suggests that the bonding is the individual’s response to trauma in becoming a victim. Identifying with the aggressor is one way that the ego defends itself. When a victim believes the same values as the aggressor, they cease to be a threat.  Battered-person syndrome is an example of activating the capture–bonding psychological mechanism, as are military basic training and fraternity bonding by hazing. Modified from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stockholm_syndrome “RBG Street Scholar says this is called intropression: When the oppressed are subject to oppression as long as Afrikans under the boot heel of Europeans, we internalize the ways of the oppressor and thus do to ourselves what the oppressor once did to us.” If there ¡s no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning.

  6. 6. SOLUTIONS (We need to be on the same page) N.B. Of course saying what you want (talking| writing) is one thing, getting it (actions to secure) is related but, requires a greater amount of work, courage , risk, sacrifice and desire to take just demands closer to reality. Nonetheless, a good ideological, political and philosophical framework and plan is what keeps us on point. “Frolinan’s National Strategy is based on a Three Phase Theory for National Independence. Frolinan's National Strategy is exemplified in our Ten Point Platform and Theory and Organizational Program for Decolonization. Our strategy and practice will serve to manifest in reality the Ten Point Platform, a program accepted in principle by all members of Frolinan.” --------------------------------------------------------------------We of the New Afrikan Independence Movement spell "Afrikan" with a "k" because Afrikan linguists originally used "k" to indicate the "c" sound in the English language. We use the term "New Afrikan," instead of Black, to define ourselves as an Afrikan people who have been forcibly transplanted to a new land and formed into a "new Afrikan nation" in North America. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ WHAT WE WANT (WHAT IS NEEDED TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS ABOVE) 1. We want National Independence and the power to determine the destiny of the New Afrikan Nation. We believe that New Afrikans will not be free or able to determine their own destiny until they have end neocolonial and capitalist-imperialist domination. It hereby becomes essential that our struggle commences with the fight for Black community control, a fight that will be the first step towards self-government, which is prerequisite to national independence. NU AFRIKANS LOOKING AHEAD TO 2014: PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS 6|P a g e
  7. 7. 2. We want full employment of our people. We believe that the federal government and this system of monopoly-capitalism are responsible for the abject poverty and the basis for unemployment existing in the New Afrikan community. This provides the basis for underdevelopment in the New Afrikan community, giving rise to socioeconomic and political disenfranchisement of New Afrikans. Thereby, the fight for Black community control encompasses a fight for community development in which the federal government and multi-national corporation provide economic incentive to produce jobs in the New Afrikan community. This is the major formulation revolutionary nationalist are to establish a relations with the colonial (U.S.A.) government, to assure federal funds are allocated to the New Afrikan community for constructive development and jobs. 3. We want the end of capitalist exploitation of the New Afrikan community, national liberation of the national territory of Kush, and reparations for over four hundred years of national oppression. We demand all tax money expropriation from New Afrikan people be appropriated for the development in national territory of Kush. 4. We want decent housing and control of the land in which New Afrikans reside. In the past the landlord who owned the property of New Afrikan residences, usually live outside the community, and did not care for the land and housing dwelling. Based upon that experience and the struggle for Black community control and self -government, we demand ownership of the property in which we reside, tobe developed in cooperatives and communal central. 5. We want education for our people that exposes the true nature of monopoly capitalism and imperialism, but that also provides the historical foundation in which our cultural development is based in this country, in relation to other people of color throughout the world; such an education that provides our youth with the essential skills and incentive to become a part of the independence movement. As we demand control of the community in which we reside, the development of academic institutions becomes a fundamental part of the security of the independence movement, to build leaders for the future, in NU AFRIKANS LOOKING AHEAD TO 2014: PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS 7|P a g e
  8. 8. preserving the prospects for self-determination. Hence, education is to evolve understanding of the development of the struggle for self-determination, but also the historical and practical academic foundation in which the New Afrikan Nation is to preserve its destiny. 6. We want all New Afrikans to be exempt of military service in the colonial (U.S.A.) government as it is our position that all wars by the colonial government are wars of aggression for the colonial domination and imperialist exploitation of lesser developed nations/countries; and other people of color victimized by the same forces of racism and capitalist exploitation New Afrikans are currently under subjugation. -we demand exemption from military service in the colonial government and call for the building of a New Afrikan Peoples Liberation Army to fight for and establish the security and well-being of New Afrikans. 7. We want an immediate end to police brutality and murder of New Afrikan people. We believe that the police of the colonial (U.S.A.) government acts as an occupation force to maintain control and order for the benefit of the colonial government. That the police motives are not in the basic interest of New Afrikans and their community, but rather, for the interest of the capitalist class who have businesses and own property in the New Afrikan community. In the course of establishing Black community control, we call for the immediate withdrawal of the occupation police army from our communities, and for New Afrikans to establish their own security system. We also maintain the right of self-defense against racist police repression and brutality, the right to bear arms, and the right to organize self-defense groups to preserve the security of the New Afrikan community. 8. We want the immediate release of all New Afrikan people held in federal, state, county and city prisons and jails. We believe that the system of national oppression has not provided New Afrikans with fair and impartial trials or hearings, in which the bias and prejudice inherent in the system served to assure their imprisonment Furthermore, the judicial system is one of the major tools by which the system of oppression uses to stifle the fruition of the national liberation struggle and every aspects in which New NU AFRIKANS LOOKING AHEAD TO 2014: PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS 8|P a g e
  9. 9. Afrikans fight for civil and human rights. It is therefore held that the police, courts and prisons are all a part of the system of oppression and are unable to dispense justice and impartiality towards New Afrikans who might come before them for a trial or hearing. We call for all New Afrikans when brought to trial to be tried by a jury of their peers or people from their New Afrikan community, and if found guilty of a charge for them to be sentence to areas of confinement in or near the New Afrikan community. We maintain the colonial (U.S.A.) government has no right to try any New Afrikan for as long as a state of war exist between two nations and colonial domination persists; and that all captive members of NAPLA or the Black underground be recognized as political prisoners of war and afforded Geneva Accord status. 9. We want the right to be free of colonial domination, capitalist exploitation and national oppression. We demand full control of the New Afrikan community where we are a majority, for the express purpose of self-government towards nation independence. We call on the United Nations and the Organization of Afrikan Unity to recognize the existence of a nationally oppressed New Afrikan people and nation in the United States and for them to conduct a national plebiscite for the purpose of a vote of independence, giving recognition to the New Afrikan nation in the western hemisphere. 10. We want the right to migrate to the “national territory of Kush” and establish an independent nation separate from the colonial (U.S.A.) government of the United States of America. We believe New Afrikans have had enough of over four hundred years of national oppression and are willing to establish their own nation employing the resources and labor inherent in the New Afrikan nation. We claim the five (5) states of the black belt as our national homeland in this country having named the national territory Kush and are bound to liberate this territory in a national liberation struggle; to eventually migrate to the national territory and establish the government of the Republic of New Afrika Learn more Frolinan Studies Collection NU AFRIKANS LOOKING AHEAD TO 2014: PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS 9|P a g e
