En soutien au mouvement révolutionnaire, mouvement d'honneur et de dignité en Guadeloupe

Comment l'esclave peut-il s'affranchir de l'odeur du Maître et de la peur viscérale qui ronge ses entrailles sachant que cette peur est transmise aux générations futures par l'éducation de l'asservissement et de la soumission ? Cette terreur est maintenue par le Maître et léguée à une idéologie coloniale qui sévit encore aujourd'hui.

Il est important de savoir comment le culte de la terreur a été pensé et entretenu depuis l'esclavage à nos jours. Durant l'esclavage, les esclaves… Continue

Free ourself from the smell of the Master - Tribute to the revolution movement in Guadeloupe

How can the slave frees himself from the smell of the Master and from the visceral fear which eats his intestines knowing that this fear is passed to the future generations by the education of the subjection and the submission? This terror is maintained by the Master and bequeathed to a colonial ideology which rages even today.

It's important to know how the cult of the terror was thought and maintained since the slavery in our days. During the slavery the runaway slaves were… Continue

Reggae and dancehall A culture clash

Edward Seaga:

It is felt, generally, that all Jamaican popular music can be described by one brand name - reggae. This assumption has been widely accepted because of the dominant position of reggae music, which has so captured international popularity that it is a phenomenon. But musical styles remain popular for only so many years. Then comes the period when the composing of new tunes ceases and, the music thereafter lives on in memories and reputation.

But, Can They Read?

commonsense 714

John Maxwell:

Some of the most amazing things happened within the last two weeks. Hundreds of miles above the earth, an obsolete Russian satellite collided over Siberia with a American communication satellite, and the odds against that happening are so astronomic that nobody had bothered to calculate them.

So, many of us were more than surprised when we heard a few days later that two nuclear submarines, one British, the other French, had… Continue

A Thief by any other name...

Odhiambo T Oketch:

Yesterday was a sad day for the many Kenyans on whose behalf President Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila were begging food for from the International Partners just recently at KICC.

In the floor of Parliament, we all watched with shock as Parliament voted against a censure motion against the Minister of Agriculture. This cleansing, at whatever cost it was, proved once more that the big THIEVES can never be touched in Kenya. They will steal and look… Continue

Dr. Yosef ben-Jochannan, Update

Greetings Family,

How are you? I am a little tired but I am okay. It is a busy time for me. African-American Heritage Month or Black History Month or whatever you choose to call this time of year is very demanding, and the scholars tend to really push themselves during this time. Last weekend I lectured in Detroit and Chicago and right now I am in the middle of an Ohio lecture series. I am trying to get at least a few hours of sleep every night. My diet could be a lot better but I am… Continue

Are The Sanctions Against Zimbabwe A Weapon Of War ?

James C. McIntosh, M.D.:

The great Prussian general, and before I get into trouble and anybody is asked to denounce me, for calling a Germanic leader great, let me cautiously say wickedly great. The wickedly great Prussian general Frederick the Great wrote in his instructions to his generals, that "The greatest secret of war and the masterpiece of a skillful general is to starve his enemy.

That's what sanctions do.

In Zimbabwe sanctions have created… Continue

Tyler Perry: The Art of Speakin' "Christian-ese"

Paul Scott:

I once asked my homie, spoken word artist, James Washington how it is that a

thugged out brotha like him gets invited to speak at churches all the time

and a (relatively speaking) clean cut brother, like me, can't even make it

past the front door ?

"Simple," he said. "You don't know how to speak Christian-ese."

Christinese- a type of dialect that will make black folks give you the shirts

off their backs. Master the language… Continue

L'Humanitaire ou le viol de nos imaginaires.

Mbegane NDOUR:

Ousmane Sembéne dans un de ses films mémorables « Guelewar » nous délivre ce message intemporel : « Si tu veux tuer la dignité et l'honneur chez une personne donne lui sa subsistance tous les jours et au bout d'un moment tu en feras un être assisté dépouillé de toute dignité et de tout honneur. »

L'Humanitaire a été depuis toujours un concept inventé par l'occident pour soutenir l'idéologie de la mission civilisatrice des populations dites « éclairées… Continue

Pinkney Freddie:

The apartheid conditions in Benton Harbor still continue as my husband the Rev Edward Pinkney continues to fight for justice for the people. The power brokers of Whirlpool, Cornerstone Alliance, Harbor Shores and the Benton Harbor city commissioners have attempted to silence his voice and shackle his legs with their 24/7 house arrest.

Around the Globe, Technology Widens Rich-Poor Gap

Philip Emeagwali:

Oil has made us billions and fuelled our economic stability, but oil has also become the bane of our existence. For some, it is a curse that has caused poverty and corruption, but for others it is an essential source of untold wealth and power. But as the gap between rich and poor countries continues to expand, it is clear that intellectual capital and technology rule the world, and that natural resources such as oil, gold, and… Continue
