This is an outrage for Afrodescendants everywhere! We have suffered in this country more than any other people many of whom have received Reparations, i.e, Indians, Japanese, and yet we are not offered one penny in compensation for the country our foreparents built!Personally, I would have felt better if they had not apologized, then I would not have received such a slap in the face!They treat Afrodescendants like we are retarded idiots, ( I said I am sorry nigger, now go and be happy). They take our tax money to bail out the banks, the world, and everyone else, or should I say everything else, now they are building a tunnel for turtles in Florida with 1 million dollars!They gave the Cherokee 3 billion dollars for housing, and the Cherokee already have casinos.What do Afrodescendants have? We are now shouldering the brunt of unemployment, crime, HIV, and other ills with no respite in sight.We need to organize under our international identity of Afrodescendants and demand this government due justice by us.Posted by Raushana at 8:53 AM 0 commentsTuesday, June 9, 2009Cherokee's Get 3 BillionThe Cherokee Indian nation is receiving $3 billion in stimulus money for housing.

Gathered on the same platform were representatives, from the '5' Percenter Nation, the Nation of Islam under Minister Louis Farrakhan, however, the CEO of the Lost Found Nation of Islam, the Honorable Silis Muhammad came in person, along with his wife, Attorney Misshaki Muhammad, and Supreme Captain Wali Bahar.For this writer it was like seeing my family reunited after more than 30 years. I had witnessed the breakup of this "Holy Family" after the death of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, and saw the Nation fall. This gathering convened by Malik Zulu Shabazz brought this "Holy Family" back together. May Malik Zulu Shabazz be forever blessed for orchestrating this Divine occasion.The audience received information on the life of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, that they had not known. Misshaki Muhammad, the wife of the Honorable Silis Muhammad was once married to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad's youngest son, Akbar Muhammad. She related to the audience how the Honorable Elijah Muhammad was a multi-faceted and humble man who strived to teach humility to his children. Once, she said she witnessed the Honorable Elijah Muhammad getting down on the floor to teach one of his children to bow and be humble.She also shared a story, that when she was a secretary in the Honorable Elijah Muhammad's home no food was allowed upstairs. Of course, being young, she kept candy and cookies in her drawer upstairs. One day she was busy eating her treats and the Messenger came into the room, "Oh well, I was busted then and offered Him some candy "she said. She was relieved when the Messenger did not take her to task for it.The Honorable Silis Muhammad related how he saw a 'halo' or aura, surrounding the Honorable Elijah Muhammad's head when he looked at him. I, too, saw that 'halo' emanating from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, when I first saw him at his home. I knew then that God was with him.Supreme Captain Wali Bahar, who was the Personal Captain of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, told of seeing the Messenger when he passed. With tears in his eyes the Supreme Captain, said, 'When I looked upon him, I knew that I was following the Truth in that man."Abdul Rahman, a minister of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in Georgia in the early days, and known as the "Rock of the South" related as to how the Honorable Elijah Muhammad converted him from the "fast life" into becoming a Muslim.Akbar Muhammad, the International Representative of the Minister Louis Farrakhan stated that, "We cannot leave our children a legacy of disunity."This Black Power Conference was a step in the direction of the powerful unity the Black Muslims once enjoyed, as the avant garde of our people.Posted by Raushana at 3:36 PM 0 commentsLabels: Black Power Conference, Muslim Unity, MuslimsMonday, May 11, 2009Afrodescendant Economic Stimulus PlanThe Afrodescendant Economic Stimulus Plan, will be presented in Atlanta, Georgia, Saturday, May 16th, by Vice President Ishmael Abdul Salaam of the Lost-Found Nation of Islam.Vice President Abdul-Salaam will be speaking at the Adams Park Library, 2231 Campbellton Rd, Atlanta, Georgia at 2pm.The meeting is the first step to presenting the Afrodescendant's formal demand for Economic Stimulus which will bail out the blighted Black communities of this country.For further information email: karriemraushana@yahoo.comPosted by Raushana at 8:32 AM 0 commentsLabels: Economic, Reparations, stimulusFriday, April 10, 2009The Black Economic Stimulus PlanThe Black Economic Stimulus Plan was announced in Washington D.C. on April 5th, by Ishmael Abdul Salaam, Vice President of the Lost-Found Nation of Islam.The plan is for all African Americans to be exempted from Federal and State Income taxes, forgiveness of Student Loans $200,000 per African American in a household.The total amount for the plan is 8.6 Trillon dollars.If you want further details on the plan or would like to have a representative come to your school or organization to discuss the details of the Black Economic Stimulus Plan, please contact; Raushana Karriem at by Raushana at 8:33 AM 0 commentsSaturday, March 28, 2009An Obama Presidency: America's Great DeceptionThis article was originally published in Muhammad Speaks Newspaper before Barack Obama was elected President of the United States:Presidential candidate Barack Obama should be seen as an American illusion-a false hope for Black people and an American impostor to the freedom lovers of the democratic free world. Obama is paraded before the world in order to make other governments of the world, and Black people, think that the United States of America has changed its policies and is no longer a hypocrite to the fundamental principals of civil liberty. But, my people, and governments of the world, the truth is America's 'paramount issue" exists still!The "paramount issue," the problem of inequality between Blacks and whites in the country, is as evident today as it was in 1858 in the days of Mr. Abraham Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln's chief concern was how other nations would view America's handling of the slave issue. Mr. Lincoln had this to say: "I hate it (slavery) because it deprives our republican example of its just influence in the world-enables the enemies of free institutions (other governments_ with plausibility to taunt us as hypocrites-causing the real friends of freedom to doubt our sincerity, and especially because it forces so many good men amongst ourselves into an open war...criticizing the Declaration of Independence, and insisting that there is no right principle of action but self-interest." You well know that the Civil War followed.My reason for mentioning Mr. Lincoln here is that he defines the position in society Blacks would have, after slavery. What is the former and the present status of Blacks in the United States? Mr. Lincoln had this to say: "Free them all, and keep them among us as underlings. Is it quite certain this betters their condition? I think I would not hold one of them in slavery, at any rate; them, and make them politically and socially our equal? My own feelings will not admit to this; and if mine would, we well know that the great mass of white people will not,...we cannot, then, make them equals" (Abraham Lincoln His Book, by J. McCan Davis 1909).Now! There you have it! Are we still in the position of "underlings" in America? This question yet hangs over America's head. "Underlings:" are we yet underlings in the United States of America? Inequality between Blacks and whites persists still. Does Presidential candidate Barack Obama speak of a change in our unequal status in the United States? No!We were released from plantation slavery in 1865 as America's "underlings," but we were not given equal rights, or any thing else. Do we exist today as underlings, in perpetuity, seemingly forever? Both the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad tackled this major U.S. problem in the 1950's. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., until 1968, had a dream that Black children and white children would walk hand in hand. This dream was not fulfilled. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, until 1978, asked for some Southern states, some land that we could call our own, and for America's government to take care f our financial needs for the next 20 years until we could go for self. His prayer fell on deaf ears.What has happened in the last 33 years to make you think that the American government has changed the unequal relationship? Katrina, Rodney King, Jena 6, and the Sean Bell cases are just a few examples of the racial animosity in America. Yes, Congress did apologize for slavery recently, however this apology came in the form of a resolution from the House of Representatives only, and is meaningless and non-binding, having no force of law. The Senate and the Judicial and Executive branches of the government did not support the resolution. Ain't nothing changed.Why would a Black man run for President of the United States if not to aim at solving the "paramount issue" of America and to settle the question of reparations? First off, he ain't Black-presidential candidate Barack Obama. My people, do not lose your hopes on him by believing in, and voting for, him. He ain't Black! He doesn't pretend even to be one of us. He is not like you. He ain't Black! We cannot say he is a wolf in sheep's clothing. No, he doesn't even pretend that he is like you. It appears that he want to be white, but he ain't white either. He, presidential candidate Barack Obama, dismisses our claim for reparations. He states words to the effect: reparations should go into a fund for better schooling for all. He ain't Black!All people in America have not suffered 400 years of plantation slavery and its lingering effects, including Presidential candidate Barack Obama. He was raised in a white environment by white people. He even claims Dick Cheney to be his cousin. What I'm getting at is Barack Obama does not have the mindset of a Black person that has suffered the effects of plantation slavery. He does not have the same feelings as the children of slaves. He does not know the extent of that pain and has no idea of what it is like to be uprooted from one's identity, or to live the life of a dead man with no human rights. (In his speech, he treated our call to America for equal justice as if we, Afro-descendants, do not exist.)Secondly, one element of reparations, where we are concerned, is to not only receive a paycheck, but to have our human rights restored and recognized, thus regaining lost ties or partially lost ties, joining on to each other to become a human family once again (ethogenesis) having the recognition of the United Nations and enjoying the human dignity that other families of the earth enjoy. Human families such as the Chinese, Korean, Iranian and Japanese still have their month er tongue, culture and religion. Our mother tongue culture and religion were, by force, taken from us during the sojourn into plantation slavery and its lingering effects. We were robbed of our essential essence, and we still are. Does the democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama not want us to have this? We well know that the United States Government does not want us to have our essence, does not want us to join on with one another and become a human family once again, from its conduct exercised in the United Nations in 2005.Some countries in the United Nations want Afrodescendants )so-called African-Americans) to have their human rights and to be restored to the human families of the earth. How do I know?Because I Silis Muhammad, have been there in the United Nations for the past 15 years, talking to, and observing, UN officials as they demonstrated their concern for the human rights of Black people, Afrodescendants. They have provided Sub-Commission sanctioned seminars in Honduras and Peru, and collected leaders of Afodescendants throughout North America, South America, Central America, and the Slavery Diaspora (some 250 million of us) in an attempt to place us under one umbrella.I also was present in the United Nations when the Human Rights Department was torn down. I know, first hand, what the United States did to tear it down because they did not want us, over 210 million Afrodescendants, to have our human rights. The U.S. government tore it down along with the help of other governments from around the world who have similar problems. Though China, Iran, Russia, Korea, India, Norway, Ukraine, Chile--many African and Asian countries and other like governments of the world who did not hold 250 million Afrodescendants from their human rights and reparations, opposed this, the Human Rights department was destroyed!Where does presidential Candidate Barack Obama stand on this issue? Solidly behind the United States government, as is evidenced in the New America Media article, "McCain and Obama Make Reparations a Campaign Taboo." Does Barack Obama seek a change in the United States' denial of human rights for Afrodescendants, since his campaign platform is change? Emphatically, no! According to the Scripture, the people who suffered 400 years of slavery are to, afterwards, leave their slave master with great substance..according to the Scripture. Barack Obama supports the United States' denial of reparations and human rights for Afrodescendants. Like the United States, Presidential candidate Barack Obama does not want reparations for Afrodescendants. He says that a better remedy for America is for ALL to get better education, health care, welfare, and so on. But ALL are not suffering the psychologically damaging effects ofplantation slavery and its lingering effects.My people, and governments of the world, Presidential candidate Barack Obama is America's great illusion, a false hope for Black people, and is being used to hoodwink the world into making it believe we all have equal rights. And we really do not. While the platform of Presidential candidate Barack Obama is change, he makes taboo the issue of reparations-restoration on the campaign trail. The mere fact that reparations is made a taboo on the campaign trail, by both Barack Obama and John McCain, is proof that it is an issue on the minds of the American people; or, that the major issues of Afrodescendants are once again swept under the table.Reparations-restoration is on the tongue of every minor grass-roots leader of Blacks in America., and it is on the tongues of some major leaders of Blacks. To be sure, reparations-restoration is, at present, a household word within the Black and white communities. I say to the real friends of fundamental principles of civil liberty-freedom, justice and equality- to the world over, and to my people, ain't nothing changed, and nothing will change, until you change it!Silis MuhammadChief Executive OfficerLost-Found Nation of IslamPosted by Raushana at 1:06 PM 0 commentsLabels: Deception, Obama, PresidentOlder Posts Subscribe to: Posts (Atom)FollowersBlog Archive▼ 2009 (11)▼ June (3)Slavery Apology With No ReparationsCherokee's Get 3 BillionAfrodescendant Economic Stimulus Plan seminar to b...► May (2)Black Power Conference, Atlanta, GeorgiaAfrodescendant Economic Stimulus Plan► April (1)The Black Economic Stimulus Plan► March (5)An Obama Presidency: America's Great DeceptionObama Presidency - An American DeceptionLetter to President ObamaMiami Florida ApartheidHidden Murders of Katrina VictimsAbout MeRaushanaI am the Editor of Muhammad Speaks Newspaper.
