Skip to comments.The New Black Awakening “Malcolm X”: It’s Reparation Time…

You get your freedom by letting your enemy know that youll do anything to get it Malcolm X
So, where were all Malcolms fans on Thursday, May 19, when the faithful celebrated the 86th anniversary of his birth? Each year, people dedicated to the principles Malcolm X championed gather in Westchester County, New York at his Ferncliff Cemetery gravesite, although many profess to embrace Malcolms teachings, the sad truth is that the actual number of practitioners are few. Its regrettable that so few Black Americansdefine freedom the way that Malcolm did. African Americans have fallen prey and acceptable of Americas institutional racism. In America and every country that benefitted off the backs of slaves, descendants of slaves continue to allow themselves to be held at bay regarding reparations.
Ask yourself: If Malcolm were alive today, would he be for or against reparations? Or, if you are a Mainstreamer ask yourself if the freedom Malcolm spoke of was freedom to associate and assimilate with Whites? There needs to be an awakening among those Blacks with mainstream mindsets about the importance of reasoning and rallying for reparations compensation. Until now, Blacks have allowed themselves to be bamboozled by an illusion of inclusion in American society. Mainstream forces keep most Blacks minds off the daily doses of racism they experience and cause us to focus the energy we should be using toward our freedom on the symbolism of keeping Obama in the White House.
Instead of striving toward the freedoms Malcolm sought, Mainstream Blacks are happy to entrust traditional institutions to look out for our interests. Given the frightening state of affairs in the White world, mainstream oriented Blacks have to admit that nothing is improving for Black people in general. Just when Black Mainstreamers thought it was safe to sneak out of the struggle, a movement called Exodus Two emerged. The movement promotes a new philosophy for Blacks to rise up and act in our own behalf.
Our current level of empowerment is not working for us, so instead of continuing to allow White peoples interest to determine our agenda, Blacks need to take a timeout from the mainstream and make time to make a difference in our own communities. If we continue to blend in, our race will literally rot in the ghettoes of America. Whether you live on Malcolm X Boulevard, or in a gated community, its time to represent descendants of the slave trade against the injustices that destroyed Blacks and their forbearers lives. Isnt it time that concerned Black Americans admit that nothing is improving for us under this system? This system was built based on Blacks providing free labor. Its also time we each demonstrated on behalf of the descendants of slaves and against the U.S. government for its complicity in the slave trade and the impoverishment, misery, distress, and bigotry that continues to this day.
Isnt it time to make the American and European governments accountable for stealing human beings off of the continent of Africa and enslaving them for 400 years? The debt from that period is simple: more than 100 million Blacks lost their lives, at the same time; White-run nations that acquired wealth and power from one generation to the next continued to thrive; while slaves and their descendants lived in wretched chattel squalor. Sadly, most Blacks seem satisfied with this status quo.
Newly awakened Blacks could be an enabling force during the upcoming months and years by scheduling local lectures and study groups on reparations. The Exodus Two movements goal seeks passage of a bill for reparations. Toward that end, Exodus Two is mounting two public rallies: the first on June 15, beginning at 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., in front of The United Nations in New York City. The second rally will be held on June 20, beginning at 6 a.m. until 5 p.m., on the steps of U.S. Capitol. Its time to get on the list.

Replacement by first-generation robots?
Another ‘racer’ who’s never understood the meaning of the phrase, “E Pluribus Unum”.
I’m sick to death of these people.
This half-Black President and his racist attorney general, who promised racial healing, have deliberately stirred up historic resentments to the boiling point. They're destabilizing the world as well, bowing to Islam and undercutting traditional American alliances.
It's time for the boy king and his racist lackeys to go.
This is just the latest most racially bigoted epitome of professional victimhood staggering drunkenly into the light of day as an "official" demand for more Affirmative Action handouts for the laziest, most apathetic and slovenly layabouts that ever waited for a Welfare check instead of getting off their cottage cheese asses and making a better life for themselves.
It's O'Bunghole and Holder's dream of an entire society being openly mugged by Radical Blacks all at once for billions of their hard-earned dollars. As if the trillions O'Bunghole has already raped us for isn't way too much.
I'll tell you all this now: America's will revolt en masse before these professional victim ripoff scum will be allowed to perpetrate the biggest scam in the history of mankind. That they have so little shame, pride or dignity as to suggest this garbage is proof positive of what vile and villainous filth we're dealing with.
Bring it, morons. I've got your reparations... right here.
cause us to focus the energy we should be using toward our freedom on the symbolism of keeping Obama in the White House.
need more energy used toward freedom
less worrying about keeping “Obama” in the White House
cause us to focus the energy we should be using toward our freedom on the symbolism of keeping Obama in the White House.
What does “Obama” know the need for freedom ???
His folks werent slaves
His folks were slave owners and slave traders
hes half white
let him shift for his honky self
Sorry bro, dis honky be broke.
Some say he is 13% black African and 37% Arab.
In other words... his ancestors SOLD the slaves in Africa.
THAT is what the Arabs did in Sub Saharan Africa... for 1400 years they sold slaves to the Arabs.
90% were women... and the 10% that WERE men were castrated.
Yet.... Islam is a popular religion among American Blacks...
What does the 500,000 almost totally white people that died to free black people get?.. The war was of course about State rights.. not slavery... Almost all those dead people never owned or wanted to own slaves.. on both sides..
What do they get?.. nothing.. any respect?.. a tip of the hat?... what?..
Oh he knows it ok, he rejects anything like it.
Free at last - to go where you want and think what you want to think.
Go to Africa. No one is forcibly keeping you here in a place your ancestors were slaves.
If you are unhappy here, Africa is where you belong.
They got Memorial Day but don’t you *dare* honor the Confederate dead.
Everyone deserves an equal chance. If they're too ignorant to use it to Hell with them!
Amen..if they think they would get a better deal in Africa, then adios....
Nor the meaning of "Go To Hell!".
(If not already taken in the 'Rapture')
Reparations = Corruption of the blood
Bad timing. Whitey’s wealth has pretty much been pilfered and squandered. Try again next century.
That means they're getting out of this country?
GREAT! I'd kick in a tax donation to apply toward their tickets if all the race-baiting, neo-plantation hugging, Kwanzaaaa-hyping, handout-grabbing, collective guilt-plugging racists would take their irrelevant divisionist butts to another country.
0 and his ilk plugged plenty of code words. "Racial healing" to majority Americans means they can finally stop being flogged for something they did not do.
For the victimists, it means, "How much do you want in your check?"
For chardonnay liberals, it means, "You should feel guilty, but someone else paying could make you feel better."
Reparations? Sure -- let's limit reparations to only those who ARE directly descended from slaves, and who would have had a higher standard of living now had their ancestors stayed in Africa.
For every portion of ethnic heritage they lost from their original slave ancestor, decrease the reparations by that amount.
And pay the check only to those who agree to return to, and remain in, their original homeland.
The line might not be quite so long if those were the conditions.
The entitlement and dependency class black, white, and red all over are slaves to the federal government.They do what they are told or no "free stuff".
“Isnt it time to make the American and European governments accountable for stealing human beings off of the continent of Africa and enslaving them for 400 years?

What of the African kings and slave traders who sold “their own”? Shouldn’t their descendants be forced to pay? Oh, I get it, only American and European countries can possibly commit a slavery related offense.
I’d like to see a credible source for the 100s of millions killed by the White mans slavery. What of the thousands of White soldiers, about which there are plenty of facts to find, who died for those slaves in the Civil War? Their descendants deserve reparations as much or more than slaves descendants.
I don’t know about slaves (the author needs to let the authorities know where they’re located in order to free them) and their descendants being forced to live in squalor in White-run countries, but in the US the majority tend to vote for a party, either of their own free will or for a bottle of Ripple, who keeps them as chattel to the state. Then there’s the telling example of South Africa, Zimbabwe, other African nations where Black rule is forced. How’s that working out for them?
If US Blacks want reparations then Obama can give them all $100 from existing minority grants and call it even. The thing is that a one time payment is not what these people want. They want lifetime payments of enough to keep them in bling, high fashion, driving Jags and Mercedes, no employment constraints, permission to beat and kill Whitey with no repercussions and absolute control of all governments.
I’d like for people such as the author and everyone else who beats this same drum to spend a year living in an African nation as an ordinary citizen and report back.
>>Isnt it time to make the American and European governments accountable for stealing human beings off of the continent of Africa and enslaving them for 400 years? <<
A lie oft repeated is still a lie. The Europeans didn’t “steal” anything. They took custody from the REAL slavers — BLACK AFRICANS.
If American blacks want reparations they are going to have to track down the ancestors of the the African tribesmen who did the enslavement.
Right after birth the idea that Honkies owe you a living is placed in the monds of black youth. Many spend their lives waiting for the payoff.
If they spent half as much time preparing themselves for work and a useful life, as they do crying and moaning about the hardships of their great grandfathers they would make their own reparations.
The African-American who is in this country could be living in Kenya in a hut with Obamas Grandmother if they had been left there, instead many of them are more like his Aunt , in free housing and receiving welfare in America.
Which is the worse off?
This is one of the LEAST racist nations on earth!
Reparations? Fine. First pay back the trillions upon trillions that have been spent upon black people and in their communities for the last forty to fifty years. Then we will discuss reparations.
LISTEN TO REVERAND JAMES MANNING and understand. He is black and he despises these racers and communist black subversives too.
Another racer whos never understood the meaning of the phrase, E Pluribus Unum.
Im sick to death of these people.
I agree with you.
I feel sorry for them too. What other group has been ‘so’ targeted for destruction by abortion of the next Generation and the destruction of the family by government policies of Welfare.
There simply was no way, in the 1600s and 1700s, that Europeans could penetrate African territory deep enough to capture slaves in any significant numbers. It all started with AFRICAN chieftans and ARAB slave traders who sold them, and the largest way-station was Cuba. So, after getting reparations from Africa and the Middle East, let's see Castro cough up some dough. Then we'll discuss European and American roles.
Those who insist and demand reparations should consider being repatriated to their African Country of choice.
So he is a lazy welfare leach just asking for a welfare bonus.
>>All the former slaves who are still around should get something for their trouble.<<
From where I’m standing I believe they owe each other reparations.
‘Black Confederates and Afro-Yankees in Civil War Virginia, Ervin L. Jordan, Jr., (Charlottesville, VA: University Press of Virginia, 1995) pp. 218-219
Tennessee in June 1861 became the first in the South to legislate the use of free black soldiers. The governor was authorized to enroll those between the ages of fifteen and fifty, to be paid $18 a month and the same rations and clothing as white soldiers; the black men appeared in two black regiments in Memphis by September.
Citing the official US Census of 1830, there were 3,775 free blacks who owned 12,740 black slaves. Furthermore, the story outlines the history of slavery here, and the first slave owner, the Father of American slavery, was Mr Anthony Johnson, of Northampton, Virginia. His slave was John Casor, the first slave for life. Both were black Africans. The story is very readable, and outlines cases of free black women owning their husbands, free black parents selling their children into slavery to white owners, and absentee free black slave owners, who leased their slaves to plantation owners. -”Selling Poor Steven”, American Heritage Magazine, Feb/Mar 1993 (Vol. 441) p 90
Of course, a full telling of Black History would not be complete without a telling of the origin of slavery in the Virginia colony: Virginia, Guide to The Old Dominion, WPA Writers’ Program, Oxford University Press, NY, 1940, p. 378
“In 1650 there were only 300 negroes in Virginia, about one percent of the population. They weren’t slaves any more than the approximately 4,000 white indentured servants working out their loans for passage money to Virginia, and who were granted 50 acres each when freed from their indentures, so they could raise their own tobacco.
Slavery was established in 1654 when Anthony Johnson, Northampton County, convinced the court that he was entitled to the lifetime services of John Casor, a negro. This was the first judicial approval of life servitude, except as punishment for a crime.
But who was Anthony Johnson, winner of this epoch-making decision? Anthony Johnson was a negro himself, one of the original 20 brought to Jamestown (1619) and ‘sold’ to the colonists. By 1623 he had earned his freedom and by 1651, was prosperous enough to import five ‘servants’ of his own, for which he received a grant of 250 acres as ‘headrights.’
Anthony Johnson ought to be in a ‘Book of Firsts.’ As the most ambitious of the first 20, he could have been the first negro to set foot on Virginia soil. He was Virginia’s first free negro and first to establish a negro community, first negro landowner, first negro slave owner and as the first, white or black, to secure slave status for a servant, he was actually the founder of slavery in Virginia. A remarkable man.”
I found the reference, out of Michael A. Hoffman II’s “They Were White and They Were Slaves: The Untold History of the Enslavement of Whites in Early America” : Joseph Cinque was himself a slave trader, selling his fellow blacks into this horror after he himself was set free by a US court.
Amistad producer Debbie Allen calls this destabilizing fact a “rumor.” She’d better. If the thinking public, black and white, discover that “noble” Cinque later sold his own people in the very manner he condemned, then there will be a second mutiny, this time against Spielberg and his shameless hoaxing.
Here is Samuel Eliot Morrison, one of the most distinguished of American historians, writing in his “Oxford History of the American People,” (New York: Oxford Univeristy Press, 1965), p. 520:
“The most famous case involving slavery, until eclipsed by Dred Scott’s, was that of the Amistad in 1839. She was a Spanish slave ship carrying 53 newly imported Negroes who were being moved from Havana to another Cuban port. Under the leadership of an upstanding Negro named Cinqué, they mutinied and killed captain and crew. Then, ignorant of navigation, they had to rely on a white man whom they had spared to sail the ship.
“He stealthily steered north, the Amistad was picked up off Long Island by a United States warship, taken into New Haven, and with her cargo placed in charge of the federal marshal. Then what a legal hassle! Spain demanded that the slaves be given up to be tried for piracy, and President Van Buren attempted to do so but did not quite dare.
“Lewis Tappan and Roger Sherman Baldwin, a Connecticut abolitionist, undertook to free them by legal process, and the case was appealed to the Supreme Court. John Quincy Adams, persuaded to act as their attorney, argued that the Negroes be freed, on the ground that the slave trade was illegal both by American and Spanish law, and that mankind had a natural right to freedom.
“The court with a majority of Southerners, was so impressed by the old statesman’s eloquence that it ordered Cinqué and the other Negroes set free, and they were returned to Africa. The ironic epilogue is that Cinqué, once home, set himself up as a slave trader.” (End quotation from historian Samuel Eliot Morrison)
“To pursue the concept of racial entitlement—even for the most admirable and benign of purposes—is to reinforce and preserve for future mischief the way of thinking that produced race slavery, race privilege and race hatred. In the eyes of government, we are just one race here. It is American.” —Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia
“The democracy will cease to exist when you take it away from those who are willing to work and give it to those who would not.” —Thomas Jefferson ‘’’
