An Opening Message From The Administrator of The Black Fist Blog:
(This is a re-print of a blog I posted last year. Where I then I asked the question "Unity~Does It Truly Exist For The Black Community?" Alot of things have happened in the black community since I first posted this entry and as I look around the space for which I live I'm prone to revisit this blog entry and asked this question once more. I am still requesting answers.)
(I'm hoping the faithful readers of this website will [again] read my words carefully, understand what I tried to convey, expand your thought processes and feel free to honestly and forthrightly share your views and opinions about your perceptions of unity in the black community.)
(I chose to leave the comments from the original post for revisitation and I look forward to reading your comments of new. I take this subject matter seriously - very seriously- so any comments that are not on topic I will not publish. Please respect the boundaries of The Black Fist Blog's commenting policy and know I will not grant any exceptions to off-topic comments. This is The Black Fist Blog, a black militant website for black people to express themselves and I will not allow the foolishness I've been tolerating as of late. In other words, the crackdown is on! And if you don't like it that's too bad.)
THANK YOU FOR READING THE BLACK FIST BLOG!!!
"FOR THE BLACK COMMUNITY"?
This is the question that's been swirling around in my head for a very long time. "Unity~Does it exist for the Black Community"? It seems as though the further we as Black people here in the hells of North America progress economicially, socially, politicially, financially and educationally, the deeper we seem to sink into the absyss of self-hatred, self-destruction, treachery, deceit, deception, trickery, betrayal, mischief, devilment, falsehood, lies, hatred, jealousy, greed and envy. My question to the highly intellectual readers of "The Black Fist Blog" is..."Why"?
Why do we do what we do? -and- Do we even know what we are doing? -and- Do we know how to stop it? -and- The biggest psychological question [I have] is "Do we really want to even try to stop it?
The Black Community is in dire straights. There is no doubt about that. I have stated several times on "The Black Fist Blog" that all I want is "Peace & Unity" amongst my [Black] people, What I've found is nothing more than common "Disunity". Why is that? I addressed in my very first blog entry entitled: "Welcome To the Black Fist Blog" http://theblackfistblog.blogspot.com/2005/07/welcome-to-black-fist-blog.html exactly what we would be dealing with on this site and we have kept to that mission statement. It is time for Black folks to love one another, I know that phrase is commonly used by people all over the world in songs, in movies, in books, in poetry, in "The Holy Scriptures"...and a little bit of everywhere else but I will be the one here today, in this space of time to say it again..."It's time for Black folks to LOVE one another" if for no other reason than that is what The Creator Most High [God] would have us do. "Isn't that a powerfully enough reason right there"?
We look outside the "family" for what we want, what we need, what we desire but it appears we never look to each other. We think we [Blacks] can't provide for the needs, wants and/or desires of other Black folk. And when I say "provide for the needs of", I mean there is nothing outside the Black family [Community] more precious, more worth fighting for, more worth defending and protecting than your OWN Black Family [Community] and the emotional well-being of the Black people within that sphere. I am talking to you and only "YOU" Mr. & Mrs. Black Man & Black Woman! The Original Family on Earth consisted of The Black Man, The Black Woman and The Black Child. You are the source of everything we have down here on this little bitty planet we called "Earth". The Black Man is "The King of ALL Civilization", "The Original Man on the Planet" to be valued, respected and protected. The Black Man's rightful place in existance is at "The Head of ANY place he so chooses to step and/or sit". The Black Woman is his Queen, "The Mother of ALL Civilization", "The Giver of Life" to be valued, protected and respected and to be "helpmate" to The Black man -NOT- to be HIS ruler but his helpmate. The Black Child is to be defended, cherished, nourished, nurtured and to always respect his/her elders, the ones who are to teach & lead the child. "What so difficult about the natural order of things that we can't follow what The Creator has deemed his "will"?
Even the animals of the land, the birds of the air and the life forms of the sea follow the natural order of creation/existance.
I suppose the questions in this blog will be answered by those of you out there who feel like I do, that time is winding down and we must find a way to move past whatever it is that's prohibiting us as a "Family Unit" to move our race forward. I am opening this blog entry up to whomever in the black family that feels what I'm saying is worth giving input too. I ask that serious-minded Brothas & Sistas answer the call to "Unity & Peace" and the rest of the black family listen up then proceed to follow suit. I am only one (1) Black Woman but in history [Black history] it only took one (1) to stand up and do what must be done to correct the incorrectness of whatever was the vile unjust matter(s) going on at that moment in time. General Nikki X is standing up today and have stood and I will never lie down not until "My" Black Brothas & Sistas are freed of ALL the wicked vicious "ills" that plague us and won't turn us loose. I know that may take the rest of my life but for MY people....That is what I have prepared myself to do. Nothing & NO ONE will get in my way or stop me!
"What about you"?
I can't save the entire Black race all by myself and don't pretend to say I can but I can speak out and ask others who love "B-L-A-C-K" to do the same. To start off by putting thoughts into words, words into deeds, deeds into actions and so forth & so on.....
Today the "Unjustness" is disunity, disloyality, betrayal, sell-out-ism and all of the above mentioned "ills & diseases" that plague our people from the bowels of psychological slavery stemming from the 4oo plus years of physical, emotional, mental along with psychological enslavement here in the belly of the beast, this place called....America. We still suffer from what our forefathers endured during slavery. I don't give a shit what people try to tell us, it's just that simple. It's what my good friend, Queen Sista Supreme Shaharazad Ali so graciously bestowed upon us in her blockbuster often harsh but always with love truthtelling questionnaire in book form "Are You Still A Slave"? Brothas & Sistas, the devastating traumatic disease we as a suffering Black people are suffering from even to this day is called "Post Traumatic Slavery Disorder". It's real, It's serious, It's an illness/disease and dammnit it can be deadly. Look what happen when Our Dear Brotha Collin Ferguson snapped when he was pressed too damn far by the white folks in New York City back in the 90's, that's right in -the 90's-. He killed them white folks right there in broad daylight on a public train. Now I ask you, "Whose fault was it really that Bro. Collin just up & simply lost it"?
Don't be scared to answer the damn question, Hell this is serious..."Whose fuckin' fault was it"?!?!
My Dear Sistas & Brothas all of this is part of the one thing most of us deny but have constantly and continuously staring us right in our faces day in & day out, year after year....We deny ourselves the right to finally feel & deal with the "True Nature of Slavery" and what the hell it has done to us as a Black Unit, a Black Family, a Black Community...A Black race. Once we do that we can bring it all the way back to the subject of this blog and where we are today. So the question remains..."Unity~Does It Truly Exist"?
Please, I ask of all you Beautiful Black Brothas & Sistas of Conscienceness, share your thoughts with our readership, Is your Sista General Nikki X off base? Am I just missing something? -OR- Am I hitting the nail on the head with my assessment and opinions on the root of black folks "fucked up-ism-ness"? If we as a Black nation [within] a white nation went before some medical doctor with symptoms of some sort of physical illness the following steps would be taken, We'd be assessed, diagnosed, treated and (probably) prescribed some kind of medication for whatever our "sickness" was then in turn (most likely) CURED. Well Brothas & Sistas, How can we be "cured" for the "sickness" that has gripped us for over 400 years when the wicked devilish "victimizer" and the sick, scared & afraid trembling "victims" are in what one would conclude to be "Complete and Total Denial" of what has been historically written & orally documented?!? What medicine do we take for systematic Torture, Abuse, Humiliation, Complete Degradation, Delirium and Total Dehumanization? And how do we keep those potentially "deadly" diseases from ever returning to our race of people?
We here at "The Black Fist Blog" look forward to the interaction, comments, opinions and knowledge, I know for one will be be lively, educational and deep.
I want to thank everyone in advance for participating in this conversation and I will try to response to all of your comments of "conscience" and I will delete any and all foolishness that would subsequently result in defeating the purpose of this enlightening discussion amongst "the BLACK family". We really have no more energy to waste on "blight & bullshit" so please take a moment or 2 or 3 or even 4 to think before you speak on this delicate highly sensitive entry...OK? I would hope this topic will be treated with the same care, concern and gentleness one would give to a family member and/or friend whom you just found out had a deadly life-threatening "sickness". I'd venture to say you'd only want to HELP the person~NOT~HURT the person!
So, in saying all of that let's get down to the business of "problem-solving", "communicating", "listening" and "learning". I, for one am sooo tired of being "Disunifiably Sick"...."Aren't You"? Let's seek help together and we can do this with 100% understanding & compassion.
Remember we are "Kings & Queens" and together, We can make anything possible!
I leave you with the greeting established by "The Black Fist" as a "Unified Organization"....
BLACK FIST, BLACK POWER, BLACK NATION....BLACK POWER, EVERY HOUR!!!
(The views and opinions expressed by General Nikki X come from a heart & spirit filled with a deep hurt & sadness over the declining condition of a race of people who built the pyramids but who can not seem to find their way "HOME"...in every sense of the word. General Nikki X's only wish for her people is nothing less than perpetual "Unity, Peace & Blessings")
