WE ARE TAUGHT NON-VIOLENCE, BUT DOES THE WORLD PRACTICE IT???
Looking at the most recent act of violence and aggression committed by the U.S. military, one has to question the logic/reasoning as to why the entire European colonialized world hasn't seen the big picture. The European nations use mass murder, theft of land/resources, and exploitation to conquer non-European countries. Afrakans in America are constantly bombarded with being non-violent in order to obtain equality, freedom, and sovereignty. The question should be "has non-violence been proven as a successful tactic in which to gain freedom?"
READ THE FULL ARTICLE:
The U.S./NATO only interferes in any foreign conflict/dispute to suit their own interests. They've even been so arrogant as to document their imperialistic conquests/genocides. According to an article from Reuters, Gaddafi's son has said that his father has been in contact with Islamist groups/rebels. Coincidentally, Abdel Fattah Younes, who was the rebel's military commander in chief, was assaninated.
Just recently, the rebels supposedly seized a Libyan tanker(Cartagena) belonging to Gaddafi, that held enough fuel to fill almost 1 million cars. This has led to Gaddafi's forces having difficulties with resupplying, but has also effected the Libyan citizens severely. An interesting side note to think about is the fact that none of the neighboring African nations are involved in the anti-Gaddafi campaign. You would think that since Libya borders other African nations, Gaddafi's exile/capture requiring dictatorial deeds would have impacted its neighbors to the point of causing them to step in.
All African nations have their own military(whether big or small), so they do have the capacity to take a stance militarily. At the very least, one has to question why are there only european countries involved in this “crusade” in Libya? France, Britian, the U.S., and other european forces under the NATO flag have been bombing Libya and killing men, women, and babies. It's been acknowledged by the U.S. military that they murdered Muammar Gaddafi's grandkids in a air raid bombing. This was not a mistake..as they meant to kill his family as well as him.
Anyone who knows about the most oil-rich countries knows that Libya has high concentrations of it, which is one of the real reasons for the U.S. Led invasion of Libya. Another reason, just as big as the oil if not more, is the fact that Gaddafi was working on a 26-year irrigation project has cost $19.58 billion. This project is designed to tap into 'fossil water'-ice age water preserved in the porous holes of the Nubian Sandstone Aquifer.
Once in place, this man-made river (which is the largest irrigation project in the world) would be intended to develop 395,000 acres of farmland. This 'fossil water' is said to be an ancient water source buried as deep as 2,000 feet below the surface of the desert. Besides Libya benefiting, this body of water would have the ability to effect other nations in Africa, thus rejuvenating drought ridden, desolate areas of Africa (average annual rainfall about 1 inch)...even the entire continent.
The U.S. Issued and enforced an arms embargo against Libya, which in itself is an imperialistical act of war. The whole world watches CNN/other sources of mainstream media, and be-lie-ve their analysis of the Libyan conflict. As if it wasn't bad enough that the Chinese government is now in Africa, and are buying up properties, Chinese foreign minister Yang Jiechi (who met with the U.N. Special Envoy to Libya Abdel-Elah Al-Khatib) is now acting as an agent for the U.N. Coincidence? I don't think so. There's a clear connection between China's business dealings in Africa, and the ousting of Muammar Gaddafi. The U.S. Led air strikes have been killing innocent civilians, and to provide proof, pro-Gaddafi officials showed the bodies of two babies that they said were murdered in a NATO air strike; NATO of course denied any accountability for the deaths.
"Unknown to most people, in particular Afrakans in America, the United States government has conspired to continually divide the Afrakans in Afraka, and the Afrakans in America...developed a document to address the rising issue of black unity..this report, the U.S. made it clear that they knew if we united with Afrakans in Afraka, we would take back our country and all its resources..same report also states the U.S. cannot function without the rich minerals and other raw materials found in Afraka..many of the arabs are blood related to Afrakans in America/Afraka.."

NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL MEMORANDUM-46
MARCH 17, 1978
Presidential Review Memorandum NSCM/46
SUBJECT: Black Africa and the U.S. Black Movement
The President has directed that a comprehensive review be made of current developments in Black Africa from the point of view of their possible impacts on the black movement in the United States. The review should consider:
1. Long-term tendencies of social and political developments and the degree to which they are consistent with or contradict the U.S. interests.
cc: The Secretary of the Treasury
NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL
STUDY RESPONSE TO PRESIDENTIAL SECURITY
Objective of our policy toward Black Africa is to prevent social upheavals which could radically change the political situation throughout the area. The success or failure of our policy in the region depends on the solution international
II. A. U.S. INTERESTS IN BLACK AFRICA
A multiplicity of interests influences the U.S. attitude toward black Africa. The most important of these interests can be summarized as follows:
IV. BLACK AFRICA AND THE U.S. BLACK MOVEMENT
Apart from the above-mentioned factors adverse to U.S. strategic interests, the nationalist liberation movement in black Africa can act as a catalyst with far reaching effects on the American black community by stimulating its organizational consolidation and by inducing radical actions. Such a result would be likely as Zaire went the way of Angola and Mozambique.
In order to prevent such a trend and protect U.S. national security interests, it would appear essential to elaborate and carry out effective countermeasures.
Inside the United States these actions could include protest demonstrations against our policy toward South Africa accompanied by demand for boycotting corporations and banks which maintain links with that country; attempts to establish a permanent black lobby in Congress including activist leftist radical groups and black legislators; the reemergence of Pan-African ideals; resumption of protest marches recalling the days of Martin Luther King; renewal of the extremist idea national idea of establishing an "African Republic" on American soil. Finally, leftist radical elements of the black community could resume extremist actions in the style of the defunct Black Panther Party.
Internationally, damage could be done to the United States by coordinated activity of African states designed to condemn U.S. policy toward South Africa, and initiate discussions on the U.S. racial issue at the United Nations where the African representation constitutes a powerful bloc with about one third of all the votes.
A menace to U.S. economic interests, though not a critical one, could be posed by a boycott by Black African states against American companies which maintain contact with South Africa and Rhodesia. If the idea of economic assistance to black Americans shared by some African regimes could be realized by their placing orders in the United States mainly with companies owned by blacks, they could gain a limited influence on the U.S. black community.
In the above context, we must envisage the possibility, however remote, that black Americans interested in African affairs may refocus their attention on the Arab-Israeli conflict. Taking into account; the African descent of American blacks it is reasonable to anticipate that their sympathies would lie with the Arabs who are closer to them in spirit and in some case related to them by blood. Black involvement in lobbying to support the Arabs may lead to serious dissention between American black and Jews. The likelihood of extremist actions by either side is negligible, but the discord may bring about tension in the internal political climate of the United States.
3. Political options
In the context of long-term strategy, the United States can not afford a radical change in the fundamentals of its African policy, which is designed for maximum protection of national security. In the present case, emphasis is laid on the importance of Black Africa for U.S. political, economic and military interests.
In weighing the range of U.S. interests in Black Africa, basic recommendations arranged without intent to imply priority are:
1. Specific steps should be taken with the help of appropriate government agencies to inhibit coordinated activity of the Black Movement in the United States.
2. Special clandestine operations should be launched by the CIA to generate mistrust and hostility in American and world opinion against joint activity of the two forces, and to cause division among Black African radical national groups and their leaders.
3. U.S. embassies to Black African countries specially interested in southern Africa must be highly circumspect in view of the activity of certain political circles and influential individuals opposing the objectives and methods of U.S. policy toward South Africa. It must be kept in mind that the failure of U.S. strategy in South Africa would adversely affect American standing throughout the world. In addition, this would mean a significant diminution of U.S. influence in Africa and the emergence of new difficulties in our internal situation due to worsening economic prospects.
4. The FBI should mount surveillance operations against Black African representatives and collect sensitive information on those, especially at the U.N., who oppose U.S. policy toward South Africa. The information should include facts on their links with the leaders of the Black movement in the United States, thus making possible at least partial neutralization of the adverse effects of their activity.
V. TRENDS IN THE AMERICAN BLACK MOVEMENT
In connection with our African policy, it is highly important to evaluate correctly the present state of the Black movement in the Untied States and basing ourselves on all available information, to try to devise a course for its future development. Such an approach is strongly suggested by our perception of the fact that American Blacks form a single ethnic group potentially capable of causing extreme instability in our strategy toward South Africa. This may lead to critical differences between the United States and Black Africa in particular. It would also encourage the Soviet Union to step up its interference in the region. Finally, it would pose a serious threat to the delicate structure of race relations within the United States. All the above considerations give rise to concern for the future security of
Since the mid-1960s, when legislation on the human rights was passed and Martin Luther King murdered, federal and local measures to improve black welfare have been taken, as a result of which the U.S. black movement has undergone considerable changes.
The principle changes are as follows:
*Social and economic issues have supplanted political aims as the main preoccupations of the movement. and actions formerly planned on a nationwide scale are now being organized locally.
*Fragmentation and a lack of organizational unity within the movement.
*Sharp social stratification of the Black population and lack of policy options which could reunite them.
*Want of a national leader of standing comparable to Martin Luther King.
B. THE RANGE OF POLICY OPTIONS
The concern for the future security of the United States makes necessary the range of policy options. Arranged without intent imply priority they are:
(a) to enlarge programs, within the framework of the present budget, for the improvement of the social and economic welfare of American Blacks in order to ensure continuing development of present trends in the Black movement;
(b) to elaborate and bring into effect a special program designed to perpetuate division in the Black movement and neutralize the most active groups of leftist radical organizations representing different social strata of the Black community: to encourage division in Black circles;
(c) to preserve the present climate which inhibits the emergence from within the Black leadership of a person capable of exerting nationwide appeal;
(d) to work out and realize preventive operations in order to impede durable ties between U.S Black organizations and radical groups in African states;
(e) to support actions designed to sharpen social stratification in the Black community which would lead to the widening and perpetuation of the gap between successful educated Blacks and the poor, giving rise to growing antagonism between different Black groups and a weakening of the movement as a whole.
(f) to facilitate the greatest possible expansion of Black business by granting government contracts and loans with favorable terms to Black businessmen;
(g) to take every possible means through the AFL-CIO leaders to counteract the increasing influence of Black labor organizations which function in all major unions and in particular, the National Coalition of Black Trade Union and its leadership including the creation of real preference for adverse and hostile reaction among White trade unionists to demands for improvement of social and economic welfare of the Blacks;
(h) to support the nomination at federal and local levels of loyal Black public figures to elective offices, to government agencies and the Court.
This would promote the achievement of a twofold purpose:
Pineal Gland: A Cognitive Advantage for Africans
The pineal gland is responsible for the production of melatonin, a hormone that is secreted in response to darkness, and is also the site in the brain where the highest levels of Serotonin can be found (Sun et al, 2001). In the pineal, 5-HT (Serotonin) concentration displays a remarkable diurnal pattern, with day levels much higher than night levels. Serotonin plays an important role in sleep, perception, memory, cardiovascular activity, respiratory activity, motor output, sensory and neuroendocrine function. Racial differences have been noted in the rate of pineal calcification as seen in plain skull radiographs.
In Caucasians, calcified pineal is visualized in about 50% of adult skull radiographs after the age of 40 years (Wurtman et al, 1964); other scholars argue that Caucasians, in general, may have rates of pineal gland calcification as high as 60-80% (King, 2001). Murphy (1968) reported a radiological pineal calcification rate of 2% from Uganda, while Daramola and Olowu (1972) in Lagos, Nigeria found a rate of 5%. Adeloye and Felson (1974) found that calcified pineal was twice as common in White Americans as in Blacks in the same city, strengthening a suspicion that there may be a true racial difference with respect to this apparatus. In India a frequency of 13.6% was found (Pande et al, 1984). Calcified pineal gland is a common finding in plain skull radiographs and its value in identifying the midline is still complementary to modern neuroradiological imaging. There is a surprising rarity of calcified pineal gland on skull roentgenograms in West Africans.
Adeloye and Odeku (1967) working from a hospital where an average of about 2,000 skull roentgenographic examinations were done every year, encountered less than 10 cases of roentgenologically visible calcified pineal gland in the Neurosurgery unit during a period of 10 years. In the tasks of daily life, calcification in the pineal gland affects our brain’s ability to function. Calcification of the pineal gland is shown to be closely related to defective sense of direction (Bayliss et al, 1985). In a tricentre prospective study of 750 patients lateral skull radiographs showed that 394 had calcified pineal glands. Sense of direction was assessed by subjective questioning and objective testing and the results noted on a scale of 0-10 (where 10 equals perfect sense of direction). The average score for the 394 patients with pineal gland calcification was 3.7 (range 0-8), whereas the 356 patients without pineal gland calcification had an average score of 7.6 (range 2-10). This difference was highly significant (p less than 0.01) (Bayliss et al, 1985). Also, the effects of disturbed sleep and memory are well documented. The Pineal Gland looks like a miniature pine cone and is situated in the middle of the brain beneath the two brain halves, surrounded by the ventricles, under the roof of the corpus callosum (cross-beam connecting the 2 brain halves). This active organ has, together with the Pituitary Gland, the next highest blood circulation after the kidneys. The pineal gland is responsible for the production of melatonin, a hormone that is secreted in response to darkness, and is also the site in the brain where the highest levels of Serotonin can be found (Sun et al, 2001). In the pineal, 5-HT (Serotonin) concentration displays a remarkable diurnal pattern, with day levels much higher than night levels. Serotonin plays an important role in sleep, perception, memory, cardiovascular activity, respiratory activity, motor output, sensory and neuroendocrine function. One study has shown a reciprocal relationship between the pineal and pituitary gland so that if the pineal is impaired, it affects the pituitary (Karasek and Reiter, 1982). This has a whole cascade of effects on the other glands and hormone production. The pituitary gland is an endocrine gland located at the base of the brain, and produces hormones, such as growth hormone, luteinizing hormone, follicle stimulating hormone and thyroid stimulating hormone. Pineal indolamine (e.g. Melatonin/Serotonin) and peptide hormones influence immune functions. Melatonin, in particular, increases immune memory while T-dependent antigene immunization stimulates antibody production. According to Maestroni (1993), in an article published in the Journal of Pineal Research a tight physiological link between the pineal gland and the immune system is emerging that might reflect the evolutionary connection between self-recognition and reproduction. He goes further, mentioning that Pinealectomy or other experimental methods which inhibit melatonin synthesis and secretion induce a state of immunodepression which is counteracted by melatonin. In general, melatonin appears to have an immunoenhancing effect. An interesting observation is the apparent protection from autoimmune diseases in areas of West Africa and especially in places where malaria is a problem (Greenwood, 1968). Scholars believe the reduction in melatonin with age may be contributory to aging and the onset of age-related diseases. This theory is based on the observation that melatonin is the most potent hydroxyl radical scavenger thus far discovered (Reiter, 1995). Prominent theories of aging attributes the rate of aging to accumulated free radical damage (Proctor, 1989; Reiter, 1995), and as Caucasians have higher rates of pineal calcification, which produces melatonin which is a vital free radical scavenger, some suspect that people of European descent may actually age faster than those from other continents. Pineal gland calcification has also been implicated in the onset of Multiple sclerosis. Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system (CNS). The CNS consists of the brain, spinal cord, and the optic nerves. Neuroradiological research has shown the pineal gland to be involved in the pathophysiology of Multiple Sclerosis. In a 1991 study by Sandyk R, and Awerbuch G.I published in the “International Journal of Neuroscience”, it was shown that Pineal Calcification was found in 100 % of MS patients. The strikingly high prevalence of pineal calcification in Multiple sclerosis provides indirect support for an association between MS and abnormalities of the pineal gland (Sandyk and Awerbuch, 1991). Multiple Sclerosis tends to affect Caucasians disproportionately, and is nearly unheard of in Africa and is rare among African Americans. A high prevalence of pineal calcification has also been linked to bipolar disorder.

"Pineal gland secretes melatonin which activates the pituitary gland to release MSH (melanocyte stimulating hormone) it is in the melanocytes that melanin is produced"
Melanin refines the nervous system in such a way that messages from the brain reach other areas of the body more rapidly in Black people than in others.

Africans united in defense of Libya!
U.S.-led white imperialism out of Africa!
Published Apr 5, 2011
"This First Imperialist World War challenged the notions of European identity conferred to different Europeans at the 1814-1815 Congress of Vienna that was used to redraw European borders after the Napoleonic Wars."A new world has been trying to come into being since before the imperialists’ so-called first world war. It is the rise of the colonized and oppressed peoples’ struggles, and we can see its trajectory with the Garvey Movement, which organized more than 11 million Africans around the world (1914-1924), the largest anti-colonial international organization in the world to date."
"For 50 years, illegitimate leaders were imposed on us, so instead of having Malcolm X, Lumumba, Nkrumah, Rodney, Sankara, and Huey Newton in power, we instead had Mobutu, Bokassa, Wade, Compaore, Sassou, Baby Doc, Mubarak, Colin Powell and Obama, with devastating consequences."
"The significance of the surge of mass struggles in North Africa and in the Middle East is that they threaten to accelerate the shift in balance of power between the oppressor nations and the oppressed."
The real reasons for attack on Libya
"The claim that the imperialists are attacking Libya for the purpose of rescuing the people of Libya from Gaddafi's oppressive rule is a lie and a contradiction in terms."
Is it Gaddafi’s armies who occupy Iraq and Afghanistan?
Is it Gaddafi who keeps 65 percent of CFA currencies used by 14 African countries in an operational bank account in France for the benefit of France?
Is it Gaddafi who funded the genocide of over five million people in Congo?
No, it is the U.S. and French governments that have done and are doing these things.
It is in this context of balance of power that the attack on Libya and Gaddafi’s regime must be understood. An imperialist Europe and North America and an independent Africa cannot exist together; one comes at the expense of the other." Gaddafi is known to be unpredictable, which means he is not a reliable puppet of the West.
Libya is being invaded in order to bring it back under a compliable, malleable neocolonial rule.
For example, it has been reported that Gaddafi "set up the $5 billion Libya Africa Investment Portfolio in 2006, investing in countries as far apart as Madagascar and Rwanda.
"Gaddafi was willing to back up his rhetoric on Africa with money."
"The Libya Africa Investment Portfolio has stakes in gasoline stations in Cameroon and Ethiopia, mobile-phone networks in Rwanda and Ivory Coast and a 506,000-hectare logging concession and sawmill in the Republic of Congo, according to its website.
"[The portfolio] also has shares in mining companies in the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo, and poultry farms in Togo and Madagascar."Is it the fault of Gaddafi that the native Indians in America have been wiped out?

1)What flag do you pledge allegiance to..and why/why not?
2)Do you consider yourself a free individual(meaning you don't see slavery in any form being imposed on people of color)?
3)What do you see is the cause of black people being on the bottom of global society?
4)Would you be willing to be involved with an organization which is trying to bring about unity among the black community?
