How To Get Famous As A Speaker

In 1975 at the stroke of midnight on Halloween, Michael Franzese walked into a room with a hand full of other men.

At the young age of 24 he was about to be baptized in the Colombo crime family in New York.

The boss took a knife and cut Michael's finger.  The boss then took a picture of a saint and lit it on fire with a gold lighter.

"If you violate what you know about this life or betray your brothers, then you will die - - then you will die, and you're going to burn in hell like the saint is burning in your hands."

That was the start of Michael's "official" life in Mafia.

Here we are today, 35 years later, and Michael is no longer in the Mob. Today he is an author and speaker...

Who would have ever of thought this to be a real life story? Going from the Mob to a speaker of all venues - Church, Keynote, etc.

And here's the kicker, he's in demand as a public speaker!

Norma Hollis has released several videos over the last week to help those of you who desire to become a public speaker or use speaking to increase your business.

I've just finished watching her latest video on "How To Get Famous As A Speaker" and I'd highly recommend that you check it out now!

You don't need to have a background like Michael to get into the professional speaking biz (and I really hope you don't!). But you do need mentor-ship if you want to take advantage of this very lucrative business.

With unemployment as high as it is, there has never been a better time to be a professional speaker. Take what you know and give it to others (and be paid handsomely for it!)

Check out the video now...


P.S. Knowledge is power, but applied knowledge is power in action. Check out this video before it is too late!

Green Party Black Caucus Endorses Roseanne Barr for President of the United States

We are pleased to announce that the Green Party Black Caucus is strongly endorsing Roseanne Barr as the best nominee to represent our party in the run for President of the United States .
During our teleconference with members of the GPBC we were introduced to Ms. Barr by the powerful voice of the voiceless the former US Congress Member from the great state of Georgia and former US Presidential Candidate for the Green Party USA, Cynthia McKinney.  
Ms. McKinney emphasized the role Roseanne would play as a candidate by drawing world attention when speaking to the issues that represent the strong ten key values of the Green Party.  She also emphasized the fact that Ms. Barr's integrity and good will are known far and wide and will therefore make a tremendous difference and impact on the Presidential campaign 2012 besting whatever the Republican and Democratic candidates have to offer.
Following Ms. McKinney's introduction Ms. Barr confirmed her tremendous praise and support for Cynthia McKinney emphasizing her many acts of courage and her moral integrity, as well as her tenacity in speaking 'truth to power'. Roseanne spoke of the terrible price Cynthia has had to pay for this unstoppable courage in the face of terrible odds and even death like venturing to supply food, toys and medicine to Palestinian families in Gaza . Ms. Barr went on to insist on the need for the Green Party and other US citizens to unify against the horrific political reality that grips the nation.
Roseanne cited many reasons why it is so important that we as a nation come together and get beyond the issues that separate and keep us apart in order to do the right thing and achieve our common goals for the right reasons.  She frankly acknowledged that like most of us, she has made mistakes in her lifetime, but that this just emphasizes the need for us to take back control of our lives.  She stated that it was her admiration for the Green Party platform and ten key values that won her over to the Green Party. She explained that it was things such as the Green Party's insistence that there is abundance aplenty on this earth and that scarcity is a manmade false phenomenon which is a critical concept. She stated more than once that as a Green Party Presidential candidate, she will show up, she will be very serious and will take the fight wherever it needs to go.
A number of GPBC members such as Ralph Poynter and Theresa El-Amin upon hearing such words greeted Roseanne with hearty thanks and pledged to support her with all the resources at their disposal. Ralph is very well known in New York City and has been a powerful voice for Lynn Stewart and political prisoners. Theresa has a long history of civil rights work and has been a champion for women rights and is station in Georgia home of Sister McKinney where the two will be advancing the issue of getting Georgia ballot access as Roseanne's campaign kicks into gear.  
As for me, well I admitted to Roseanne that I've been a fan of hers for as long as I can remember. Her popular television show tackled and touched on so many social issues and it was a beacon of light in an era where filling a huge void left by the Jeffersons, All in the Family, Sanford & Son and Maude was extremely important. For me it's those hard to talk about subjects these shows addressed that this nation needs to hear, face and resolve because without resolution we never get anywhere.
Finally, we wish all the nominees well, we've made our choice now may the best candidate win!
Thomas Muhammad, Co-Chair GPBC

Statement from the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement on NYPD Surveillance

The Malcolm X Grassroots Movement condemns the targeting and harassment of community organizations by the New York Police Department.  The recently released NYPD intelligence report documenting the surveillance of our organization surrounding the 2008 Sean Bell case, reveals that the NYPD, not only violates the civil rights of individuals in our community, but also our organizations.

MXGM calls for an end to the ongoing police brutality committed against individuals in our community as well as end to the monitoring of organizations attempting to protect civil and human rights.

The Malcolm X Grassroots Movement is a community organization that does legally protected work in Central Brooklyn. Through our work, we call for community accountability of the NYPD and prosecution of police responsible for brutalizing and murdering our people, independent prosecution of police misconduct cases, an end to the increased militarization of the NYPD, and an immediate end to the unconstitutional stop and frisk practices.
It is clear to us that the targeting of our organization by the NYPD is a direct response to the police accountability work we have been engaged in since our chapter's founding in 1995.  In 2005 three members of our organization were unlawfully arrested while conducting our Cop Watch patrol and today we recognize the continued surveillance of our organization as harassment.

With so many unarmed civilians killed by the NYPD, the resources spent monitoring community organizations should be spent investigating those murders and securing justice for the families who have lost loved ones at the hands of the police.

And after many years, things still have not changed! The political prisoners we work to free were targeted by these same tactics over 30 years ago under COINTELPRO.  Ironically, many of those same organizers were also working to address police brutality and misconduct in communities of color.

In spite of our being targeted and the impact it may have on our organization's resources and membership, we will continue our work to fulfill our organization's objectives of holding the NYPD accountable to the communities they patrol.

In Unity and Struggle,

A Black Nationalist Perspective on the Killing of Trayvon Martin

The Soul School Institute sends its condolences to the grieving family of Trayvon Martin. I am writing to give a different interpretation on the killing of this young man. First, we need to stop referring to George Zimmerman as a "neighborhood watchman or self-appointed." George Zimmerman is a racist vigilante. 

The proper statement that should have appeared in the media is: "George Zimmerman, a racist vigilante, stalked a Black  teenager returning home from the store. He chased him, confronted him, and then, point-blank, shot and killed him. Zimmerman, who had a criminal record, used a controversial  Florida law to claim self-defense. Trayvon Martin was not armed. The Sanford Police Department refused to arrest Zimmerman, and may have been involved in a cover-up when they initially refused to release the 911 tape. 

Even after the 911 tape was released, it clearly showed that Zimmerman shot Martin without any provocation, but  the police remained defiant in not arresting Zimmerman. The enraged family of the victim has called for the Justice Dept. to launch an investigation and are demanding that Zimmerman be held for murder. 

It is also imperative that the Stanford Police Department be investigated for possible racism within the ranks and the leadership of the department. The Police Chief, Billy Lee, should be removed from his position."

This is the type of statement is closer to the truth. Zimmerman has reportedly not been seen since the shooting and his whereabouts maybe unknown. A fugitive arrest warrant should be issued by the FBI, with "Wanted DEAD OR ALIVE!"

Afro-Arab War in the Sudan - Africa's longest was and its roots by Prok Kwesi Prah

Afro-Arab War in the Sudan;

Africa’s Longest War and Its Roots by Kwesi Prah

Published in Vol. 2 No. 3 March 2002 edition of ‘The Scholar’, Journal of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) of Nigeria, Ibadan, Nigeria


Africa today is home to more conflict, war and refugees than any other continent in the world.  In our post-colonial or neo-colonial experience, these wars on African soil have in the main been civil wars.  Inter-state wars have been relatively few.  In recent time, the biggest and most significant of these conflicts of an inter-state kind has been the Ethiopian/Eritrean war.

African wars have in the past tended to be isolated and relatively, contained, affairs.  However over the past decade this reality has changed dramatically.  With the emergence of the politically and territorially inter-locking conflict in the Great Lakes area of Africa, this area, particularly the Congo, has become the vortex of a condition of increasingly generalised war in which about a third of Africa has to various degrees been drawn into this scenario on different sides of the regionalised conflict.  One implication of this is that, if all of us are involved in this situation of increasingly generalised war, then all of us will need to be part of the search for peace and the terms of the peace.

However, of all the wars plaguing the peace in contemporary Africa, the Sudanese civil war has been the oldest and in many ways the most threatening of the relationship between the Arab north of Africa and the African south of the Sahara.  Together with the racial tensions and slavery of Africans by Arabs in Mauritania and the Sudan, this makes the Afro-Arab borderlands one of the most strategically explosive flashpoints on the African continent, with profound implications for the future.

The Torit Mutiny and its Aftermath

The Sudanese civil war has the curious, historical record of being a war started before the departure of the colonial power at the closing stages of the colonial history of the Sudan.  In other words, Britain saw the beginnings of the conflict but for various reasons decided to leave the problem unresolved before independence was inaugurated in the country.  The conflict as we know it today started on the 17th August 1955 with the Torit Mutiny.  At the closing stages of the Anglo-Egyptian Condominium in the arrangement to hand over state power to the new rulers of the country, the Southern Sudanese garrison in Torit became suspicious of the intentions of the Northern Sudanese Arab officer corps which commanded the garrison.  The immediate point of conflict was the fear by the Southerners that they were going to be transferred and disarmed in order for the new Arabists elite to gain control over them and the national interest they represented as African soldiers in the south of the country.  The troops broke ranks when they were ordered to disarm and shooting started with fire directed against the Arab officer corps.  The Mutiny was brought under control but the rebellion which had started spread to different parts of the south on both the east bank and the west bank of the Nile.  The principal leaders of the rebellion were Latada in the Latuka/Acholi border area on the east bank and on the west bank under the leadership of Ali Gbatala in the areas of the south just north of the Congo border.  This insurgency continued through the first years of independence until the emergence of the Anya Anya Movement under the political leadership of the Sudan African National Union (SANU).  The main figures who had worked towards the emergence of the Anya Anya Movement were Joseph Oduho, William Deng and Father Saturnino Lohure.  African nationalists have, by and large, consistently demanded the creation of a separate state for the Africans of the Sudan.  The argument now is for the principle of self-determination to be applied in the Sudan.  We do well to remember the point made Lord Raglan who, soon after the outbreak of war in the Sudan following the Torit Mutiny, argued that:

The Sudan as it exists now, is an artificial creation of the British Government.  It is a great chunk of Africa and it happens that the inhabitants of the Southern half are totally different from the inhabitants of the Northern half.  There is no good reason why, without their consent, the Southerners should be placed under the domination of the North.  The Government was informed that if these people were placed under the domination of the North without adequate precautions there would be trouble; but the Government chose to ignore this warning completely.

The National Question

The Sudanese conflict is often simplistically described as a north-south war between an Arab-Muslim north and an African-Christian and Animist south.  This categorization is not only simplistic but also grossly misleading.  In fact the majority of the people in the north are also Africans with a great proportion of them Arabized.  In other words, their African cultures have been subverted, usurped and replaced by Arab/Islamic cultural habits.  One of the most incisive historians on the Sudan, Sir Harold Mac Michael writes that

For instance, to take the northern sector, among the nomadic camel-owning Arabs of northern Kordofan, most of whose forebears entered the country between the tenth and the sixteenth centuries, there are more ancient negroid settlements in the hills of Kaga; in northern Darfur there are Arab tribes interspersed with old negroid communities, mostly Fur, but in some areas of more westernly origin; in the Red Sea hills the Hadendoa, Bisharin and BeniAmer have little Arab blood in their veins and speak a language of their own; along the river-banks in Dongola are the ancient Nubian elements, partly Arab, as a result of the infiltrations and settlements of the centuries that followed the Arab conquest of Egypt, and partly cognate to the people of Upper Egypt.  In the central sector comprising Darfur, Kordofan, the erstwhile provinces of the White and blue Niles, Kassala and half of Dar Fund, the inhabitants are semi-nomadic, with large herds of camels, sheep and cattle, but with numerous settled villages and small towns, subsisting on cultivation and trade and the picking of gum from the acacia forests.

Furthermore, in the Nuba mountains of Southern Kordofan, which area is technically in the North, the inhabitants are Africans some of whom have been Islamised.  This has not prevented the government in the North from pursuing a campaign of ethnic cleansing in this area.  The excuse is that the Islam practised here is not “authentic”.  To the east of this region, the Fund, Hamag, Berta, Ingessana, Burun and other groups are African.  As I have elsewhere argued, most Northern Sudanese who claim Arab antecedents fall into two broad groupings.  The first of these are the Arabized Nubians made up of the Barabra and the Jaali.  They are in the main sedentary cultivators huddled along the Nile.  The second group are the Juhayna, who are nomadic and seminomadic nationalitites.  Among the Jaali in particular, Nubian dialiects still persist here and there but this language is dying out of favour of Arabic.  Modern linguistic studies show that Nubian or Nobiin, belongs to the Eastern Sudanic cluster of languages, Dair, Dilling, Midob, Birgin, Didinga-Murle, Barea, Ingessana, Nyimang, Temerin, Tama, Daju and Liguri.  By and large, the Arabized Northern Sudanese are ashamed of and underrate their African roots.  Most of the so-called Arabs of the Sudan are an admixture of local Africans, Arab settlers, and imported slaves.  It is among the Nubians that the denial of African nationality is most prevalent.

The media, by frequently over-simplifying the issues which characterise the Sudanese civil war and describing the conflict as a Muslim against Christian and Animist war, are not helping to focus the minds of people on the correct answers to the crisis in Sudan.  Again Mac Michael bears good testimony.  He pointed out rightly that:

It is true that the line of division, geographical, ethnical and cultural, between the predominantly Arab north and the purely negroid south is well marked and obvious … on the other hand, the ingrained Arab habit of raiding the south for slaves, in part for export to Egypt and Arabia, and in even greater part for domestic purposes, has existed for centuries and reached its peak in the nineteenth century under Egyptian and Dervish auspices.  This had led to widespread racial miscegenation, with the result, illustrated by complexions and features, that few, if any, Arab’ families can claim to have no admixture of the black in their composition.  The causes which have led to this merger are by no means forgotten or forgiven by the Southerners, and the fear of their recrudescence when British control is removed is not dead; but the very fact that the merger has taken place on so wide a scale provides at least some warrant, additional to that derived from economic and administrative considerations, for the claim that the whole country must now be considered as a single indivisible whole.

The only census in the Sudan which gave an indication of the proportions of Africans and Arabs in the Sudan was held on the eve of independence.  In this census 39% of the population claimed to be Arabs.  The rest of the people are Africans.  Even these figures need to be looked at with doubt and caution because in a county where it is socially and politically more favourable to claim an Arab identity, it is to be expected that more people would claim Arab identity than is actually the case.

War and an Elusive Peace

The first phase of the civil war ran from 1955 – 1972 at which point the World Council of Churches and Haile Selassie of Ethiopia brokered a peace settlement which has come to be known as the Addis Ababa Agreement.  This settlement was intended to bring lasting peace to the Sudan.  However, this peace did not last and in 1975 when the integration process of former Anya Anya insurgents into the Sudanese Army broke down at Akobo the beginnings of a new growing insurgency was under way.  The insurgents who emerged out of the Akobo incident under the political leadership then of Gordon Muortat Mayen formed the beginnings and the basis of Anya Anya 2.  One needs however to remember that some of the insurgents from the first phase of the civil was never abandoned the armed struggle.  In fact, Ali Gbatala’s group, Aggrey Laden’s faction, Gordon Muortat’s following, never accepted the Addis Ababa Agreement.  Looking back, the Addis Ababa Agreement appears to have been more a brittle truce than peace.

So when in 1983 it became clear that the Numeiri regime was, systematically tearing down the terms of the Addis Ababa Agreement, the basis for a fully fledged second phase of the civil war was created.  Numeiri re-divided the south, rescinded the provisions and powers of the Regional Assembly of the south and started introducing Sharia Law.  It is difficult to understand whether with these moves the Khartoum government did not realize that it was pushing the country into increased warfare.  I recall that, during the late months of 1983, war fever gripped the south and talk of secession or splitting the country into two became common.  In a document/press release put out by a group of southern Sudanese academics based in the University of Juba, they made the following points:

There is a well-known saying that war is an extension of politics by other means.  In other words, when the political objects of a people can no longer be achieved peacefully, we resort to war in order to achieve those political objectives.  The present military struggles in the Sudan between the Anya Anya2 and the Sudanese armed forces have broken out because the Sudanese government has piece by piece dismantled the Addis Ababa agreement which was the political solution reached between the Sudanese government and the Africans of the Southern Sudan.  The peace which was achieved between the two sides after 17 years war has been negated.  This has caused us to go back to the battlefield again.  The fundamental reason why this conflict exists is the national oppression of the African people of the Sudan.  Although we the Africans both in the North and the South form the overwhelming majority of the population, our languages, cultures and influence in government is suppressed.  We are culturally and politically being steadily pushed into accepting the dominance of Arabic culture.  This process is so systematic that many African nationalities in the West and Eastern Sudan have virtually lost their languages, culture and identity.  The minority rule of Arab settlers in the Sudan has been the root cause of our problems.  There is no truth whatsoever in the argument put forward by the apologists of the Arab minority government that religion, or more precisely the Islam-Christian division is the source of our problems.  Indeed, throughout Africa, both religions are professed by millions of Africans, and this has never made them Arabs.  It is also a well-known fact that many African nationalists in the Sudan are Muslims.  The use of religion to explain our conflict is simply a ploy to divide the ranks of the African people to the fact of Arab national oppression.  This situation has been very much worsened recently by the attempt of the Numeiri regime to impose Sharia Law on the whole country by decree.  Freedom of belief and religious practice is a human right in all civilized societies.  Islamic law cannot therefore be imposed on non-Muslims.  Indeed, not all Muslims will even accept Sharia Law if given the freedom to decide.  For centuries the African people of the Sudan have resisted Arab settler domination and we shall continue to do so until we are free.

Since 1983 the war has continued uninterruptedly to the present day.  Various attempts to bring the war to an end have failed, and the excessive factionalism, ethnicism and poor democratic practice within the African resistance led by the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA)/Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) has made it difficult for the African resistance to make consistent and steady headway.  Frequently the level of internecine conflict has temporarily crippled the war efforts of the African resistance.  Peter Adwok Nyaba has drawn attention to the fact that since 1983 differences between various enthnicities and factions in the African resistance have wreaked devastation on  the capacity of the resistance to sustain the war.  He notes that, several splinter groups and Sudanese government sponsored militia have emerged in the political arena complicating further the ethnic, religious, linguistic and other cultural differences amongst the Africans.  Adwok Nyaba has written that
Now, after eighteen years of this destructive war and armed struggle against the oppressive Arab dominated regimes that came and went in Khartoum; and after ten years of internecine ethnic rivalry, conflicts and fractricidal wars, south Sudan stands at a precarious cross-roads that raises the spectre of a military defeat by the north.  South Sudanese people are now more divided along ethnic lines than at any other time in their history.   Even within the same nationality fragmentation and conflicts have become the order eroding the ethnic fabrics that have kept the people together for ages.  This situation, if not rectified urgently, will jeopardise not only the attainment of peace and harmony but also south Sudan’s path to self-government, statehood and nationhood.

Water, Oil and War
Further complicating the situation are the issues of water, and oil which has been found in large quantities in the Sudan.  Indeed, in my recollection, from the years I spent in the Sudan during the early 1980’s, the discovery of oil in the Southern Sudan was an important factor in inducing Numeri to re-divide the South.  In a recent article by John Luk, he writes that:

Egypt’s fears of a new state coming into existence in the Nile Basin that can stake new claims on the existing water allocations are real … Egypt’s negative stance towards the right of self-determination for South Sudan is dictated by her strategic need for water in the Nile Basin.  The Sudanese state is the only country of the ten Nile Basin states that has a binding agreement with Egypt for the joint utilisation of the Nile waters.  This agreement commits the two states to act together when facing any water claims from other riparian states.  Egypt is therefore very comfortable with this arrangement with Sudan and would not accept it to be interfered with by any internal political factors in the Sudan that may cause the dismemberment of the Sudanese state.

Even more crucial to the future of the Sudan is the question of the large deposits of oil which have been found in the South of the country and, for which currently many international interests are jumping in to win oil and profits.  In order to make these areas safe for oil prospecting, the Sudanese government is ethnically cleansing all areas which have oil deposits.  In a recent report dated October 2001, released by a number of international agencies including Canadian Auto Workers Union, Steelworkers Humanity Fund, The Simmons Foundation, United Church of Canada and World Vision Canada, it is stated that “the investigators found that there was an increase in the number of recorded helicopter gunship attacks on settlements in or near the oil consortium.  The attacks are part of what appears to be a renewed Government of Sudan strategy to displace indigenous non-Arab inhabitants from specific rural areas of the oil region in order to clear and secure territory for oil development.”

The ultimate question for the Sudan however is whether the government will allow the African people of the Sudan who form the majority of the population the right to self-determination.  As things stand this looks unlikely, unless African countries and other members of the international community are willing and ready to put pressure on the Sudanese government to undertake a referendum on the question of self-determination for the Sudanese Africans.  Libya and Egypt do not favour the idea of the possibility of a break-up of the Sudan.  John Luk makes the added observations that:

Egypt’s strong stance for the unity of the Sudan is well stated in the recent peace initiative, which she presented jointly with Libya to the parties to the Sudan conflict.  The preamble of the nine points proposal made reference to the “historic responsibility to preserve unity, security, and stability of the Sudan”, and immediately the first principle of the joint Libyan-Egyptian memorandum calls for the “preservation of the unity of the Sudan land and people”.  Consistently with this position, the memorandum deliberately ignored and made no reference to the right of self-determination for South Sudan, notwithstanding the fact that self-determination is concretely embodied in the IGAD Declaration of Principle (DoP) and has been recognised by all the Sudanese political forces including the government of Sudan.

There are other strategic implications of the Sudanese situation for Africa.  In all maps of the Arab League, the southern-most border of the Arab world is indicated as the northern border of Uganda.  It is unlikely that Africans in the long run will accept the expansion of the Arab world on to the equator in Africa.

Above, new President-elect Macky Sall (left), and right outgoing President Wade
Lovers of democracy in Africa in general and the Senegalese people in particular should be jubilating about the election results in Senegal.  For the second time in the history of elections in Africa, Senegal has demonstrated a triumph of democracy.  In 2000, Senegal began a trend in Africa, which is not being followed but by a few leaders in the African continent.  In that year, a sitting African president lost an election to an opposition leader for the first time in Africa.  The president who conducted that election was President Abdoul Diuof who had governed Senegal for 20 years, just like his predecessor former and late President Leopold Senghor. 
I want to end this by saying that I am quite proud of President Wade for holding a free and fair election.  In my estimation, he stands very high for not succumbing to election gimmickry to stay in office.  Every Senegalese should be proud of Abdoulaye Wade in particular and themselves in general for the peaceful maturity they demonstrated during this period of what had seemed like uncertainty.  But they all stood tall, though earlier marred by violence, to reclaim their honor as the epitome of democracy in Africa.  It is a a great lesson that they continue to practice and teach that other Africans should emulate.  I salute President Wade for honorably exiting the presidency, Mr. Macky Sall for humbly coming into the presidency and for the Senegalese people for their democratic maturity.

A Modern-Day Lynching The Vigilante Murder of Trayvon Martin!

Revolution #263, March 25, 2012

A Modern-Day Lynching
The Vigilante Murder of Trayvon Martin!

By Carl Dix
Trayvon Martin, a Black youth walking home with a bag of skittles and a can of iced tea, is gunned down, and the cops see no reason to arrest the killer! Why not? The killer, George Zimmerman, is a member of a neighborhood watch group, and he tells the cops he shot Trayvon. Yet Zimmerman has yet to be even treated like a suspect in a homicide. Why not? Witnesses have come forward who have disputed Zimmerman's claim of self-defense, and still he walks free. Why?
In 1857, in the case of Dred Scott, a Black man who had escaped slavery, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a Black man has "no rights which the white man was bound to respect." The vigilante murder of Trayvon Martin and the countless other ways the criminal injustice system in this country abuses Black people and other oppressed people show that this white supremacist logic is still in effect.
This is a system whose wealth and power came from the vicious exploitation and brutal oppression of minority peoples. It remains true to that legacy today. Even after the Civil War officially ended slavery and after decades of tremendous sacrifices and heroic struggle by Black people and others, this oppression remains in effect. Police commit brutality and even murder and get away with no punishment. Racist murders like that of Trayvon happen again and again, and there is no justice. This happens because the system that spawned this oppression remains fundamentally intact.
If the only problem was the way this system mistreats Black people, Latinos and others, that would be reason enough to get rid of it. And this is far from the only problem humanity faces—there's the degradation women face, wars for empire, destruction of the environment, indefinite detention and even assassination of those the government calls threats to national security, and more. It will take nothing short of revolution to end all these horrors, once and for all. Revolution to get rid of this system and bring a fundamentally different system into being. We in the Revolutionary Communist Party are building a movement for revolution. Get with that movement and join the emancipators of humanity.
And there is an urgent, immediate need right now—that is for determined mass resistance from every person of conscience to condemn the murder of Trayvon Martin and to demand justice. And to stand up and say no to all the horrors this system inflicts on Black and other oppressed people.
Carl Dix is one of the Initiators of the upcoming April 19 "National Day of Resistance to Mass Incarceration." This will be a day of resistance on college campuses, in high schools and in communities—a day when religious and other institutions open their doors and invite the community in to speak bitterness about abusive policing, and youth take to the streets determined to no longer accept being criminalized in silence, and others from many different walks of life join them. A day when people in the prisons find ways to raise their voices. All of this involving all kinds of people, from different walks of life and points of view, all saying NO to Mass Incarceration, NO to everything that leads up to it, and NO to all its consequences.

Eric Arthur Blair who wrote under the pen name George Orwell penned a novel called 1984 in which he depicted a time in the not too distant future when a cunning central government uses constant surveillance, misinformation, fear, nationalism and the threat of perpetual war to control the people. The main character in the novel was named Winston Smith. His job was to rewrite and reinterpret history by painting it in the perspective of the ruling elites. The central government conditioned and brainwashed the people to accept lies and a language of disinformation as part of their every day existence. Winston thinks for himself thus he becomes a target for more surveillance, intrigue and intervention. That intervention included deception, betrayal and torture in an attempt to get Winston to confirm, enjoy servitude and an induced semi-comatose state to go along with the Big Brother program.

What sprang from Blair's imagination exists here and now in real time reality. We are living in the exact social environment and psychological milieu Blair (Orwell) described. Big Brother is alive and well in the US of A. Since the shift towards a totalitarian police state has been fairly gradual (up until recent years) and the corporate media which is a key component of the fascist Big Brother propaganda program is being used to distract us, lie to us and create a false reality at the behest of the ruling elites; we didn't/don't see it coming. We're like frogs in a pot of water where the heat is being increased incrementally rather than all at once. Nevertheless their plan is to cook us to death, it will just take longer.
We are living in the exact same world envisioned by George Orwell. We are seeing a gradual decay of society, we are constantly spied upon by the government, we are viewed as threats if we dissent or criticize the powers that be and the government uses brutal and lethal force to put down any type of resistance and opposition to their program. Winston who was a fairly well of member of the party in control lived this same reality! We are in the grip of a fascist police state. If you doubt what I'm saying meditate on how the young people in the Occupy Wall Street movement have been treated while big time government and Wall Street insider thieves and crooks get off Scott free. (Bernie Madoff is only in jail because he turned himself in.) We are in a constant state of war and have been since WWII. We are led to believe (as in all past wars) these wars (and potential wars) are righteously being waged for freedom and safety.
Despite the lies of the government, the military and the telecommunications industry we are under constant surveillance, spied upon, with citizens informing on each other; and we have been for quite some time; even before 9-11! The bogus pretext for all this spying and surveillance is of course "national security" and the "war on terror". No one ever raises the question, how can you wage war on terror, when terror is neither a place nor a people? Terror is a tactic, a tactic the shadow governments of the ruling elites (whether its the KKK or the Illuminati) have used well for millennia. The mind control apparatus' (organized religion, media and educational system) jobs are to dumb us down, keep usafraid and fearful (full of fear) so the authorities can "protect" us from the bogymen they created in the first place; The Devil, or people like Osama bin-Laden, Saddam Hussein or Joseph Koney.

One way they keep us under constant observation is through technology, the Internet, social media like Google, Facebook, Twitter and even cable television. These inventions are the tools being used by the corporations, intelligence agencies and shadow government to spy on our every move, our thoughts and activities, along with the use of cameras, satellites and other devices. The most sinister aspect of all this is, we have been tricked into buying the very gizmos and gadgets and using the very tools, software, platforms and applications employed to pry into our privacy and indoctrinate us into the New World Order ! It is so bizarre. We are actually assisting and cooperating in our own demise as free minded sentient beings. We are being conditioned for servitude, psychological conformity, mindlessness and peonage under the guise of progress, convenience, having "friends" and security. This is not just a local or USA phenomenon. The same thing or worse is happening all over the world. Europe is increasingly under surveillance with cameras and other devices. "Europe's largest 'white hat' hacker group, the Chaos Computer Club (CCC), recently reverse engineered and analyzed an anonymously submitted malware program. Nothing out of the ordinary for security researchers. However, to its surprise, the group discovered this particular malware was commissioned by German police and used to spy on German citizens. As if state-sponsored eavesdropping were not enough, this malware has also been found with remote control or backdoor functionalities that enable the uploading and executing of other programs, including the siphoning of personal data. Most concerning is the news that a laptop had the malware added by the German authorities when the user passed through customs at an airport... The German action followed the leaking of documents revealing via Wikileaks that the Bavarian police had commissioned the home-based security firm DigiTech to design a Trojan for its own use. What the CCC report and others show is that the Trojan program, Backdoor:W32/R2D2.A (also known as 0zapftis), was being used to go much farther than plain wiretapping." State-Sponsored Malware Revealed in Europe

That's just the back end. It gets worse when you consider what is happening just to get the materials to manufacture this stuff. The fact is millions of Africans living in the Democratic Republic of Congo and other regions of Central Africa have perished because of the ongoing wars being fought over minerals and resources such oil, gold, uranium and specifically coltan the pivotal mineral used to make computers, cell phones, notebooks, laptops, iPads etc. How many Africans had to die for us to sport the latest smart phones, iPhones and laptops? How many Africans have been killed so Big Brother can expand its global spy capabilities?
These gizmos are merely a part of an even larger network of spying and surveillance. " There have been a series of related and interesting developments in the field of global intelligence gathering. The NSA is building a brand new data center in Utah in order to connect with some new intelligence sharing systems such as the Defense Intelligence Enterprise and the Global Information Grid. The Global Information Grid is a massive military system which pulls information from every piece of sensory military hardware in space, land, sea, or air and manages it. The Defense Intelligence Enterprise takes which is already in place and shares that data with national intelligence agencies and their respective international partners. This behemoth is nothing but trouble as citizens around the world are being caught up in this information whorehouse. I am sure that most people would not appreciate their private conversations end up on foreign military or intelligence networks." Trapped In The Grid: How Net-Centric Devices And Appliances Provide Voluminous Information To Intelligence Agencies And Their Business Partners

This is Big Brother mind control at its best. The ruling elites knew no one was going to knowingly buy something that is going to be used to enslave them or spy on them. So they had to develop a way to make the products "hip" "Kool" and "to die for" so we would buy them. So they did what they did to market cigarettes in the 30' 40's 50's and 60's, they made it appealing and desirable. They targeted specific groups like the college kids,younger people and certain professionals to get them in the pipeline. Once they became "hip" and utilitarian the funds and marketing were made available to popularize them. We have been feed a bunch of lies about Google and Facebook and the other tentacles in the spy network to induce us to buy them and use their products like,YouTube and Twitter. We have been conditioned to think this is progress, that they are merely the latest consumer products and status symbols, when in reality they are part of the shadow government's surveillance network and global spy grid.

Am I saying these inventions were created by the elites? Not necessarily, they just backed them once they figured out how they could exploit them for the New World Order. Have you ever asked yourself why these products are so universal or why they are supported by almost everything? Is there anything that doesn't ask you to use Facebook or follow them on Twitter? Duh, it's so you'll use them which will allow Big Brother to keep track of you, know what you are thinking and what you are doing. Have you ever asked yourself why and how Bill Gates of Microsoft and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook were able to create a virtual monopoly in their particular marketplace? It's because the shadow government pumped money into them and uses them along with the other telecommunications giants they own to be part of a total global surveillance system to spy and keep track of all who use them. So the smart phone, iPhone or iPad you are bragging about and carrying around with you is really Big Brother's way of keeping tabs on you. But that's not their ultimate goal. They will only use these until such time they can convince us to allow them to implant an RFID chip in us. And they are working on that as we speak. In the future Big Brother won't just be in your pocket, it will be embedded inside of you. Food for thought

We're At A Critical Juncture by Junious Ricardo Stanton

From the Ramparts
by Junious Ricardo Stanton

"One may well ask: How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others? The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: just and unjust. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

For years I have been attempting to alert people to the growing Nazification of the US political system into a totally fascist, depraved police state that poses a significant danger to the whole world. Daily more and more signs indicate the moral rot at the core of this country is metastasizing to the point it is beyond redemption or healing. During the last few months President Barack Obama has signed legislation or issued executive orders that would make Adolph Hitler proud. In December he signed a controversial bill called the National Defense Authorization Act of 2011, a Draconian bill that makes it legal for the United States to indefinitely detain, without legal representation or trial anyone suspected of but not proven to be a "terrorist" including US citizens.
The ACLU was appalled at the signing. This law violates both US and international laws. "The statute is particularly dangerous because it has no temporal or geographic limitations, and can be used by this and future presidents to militarily detain people captured far from any battlefield. Under the Bush administration, similar claims of worldwide detention authority were used to hold even a U.S. citizen detained on U.S. soil in military custody, and many in Congress now assert that the NDAA should be used in the same way again. The ACLU believes that any military detention of American citizens or others within the United States is unconstitutional and illegal, including under the NDAA. In addition, the breadth of the NDAA's detention authority violates international law because it is not limited to people captured in the context of an actual armed conflict as required by the laws of war."
Obama is supposed to be an expert on the US Constitution. Based upon his actions on this and several other bills, you couldn't convince me he knows diddly about the Constitution or the Bill of Rights let alone what it means to abide by his sworn obligation to uphold and defend it from all enemies foreign and domestic. This from a bi-racial man who is married to a native born black woman thoroughly conscious of the history of racial animus and injustice of this country. Believe me I get it, Obama was raised by his white grandparents and was relatively sheltered from racial bigotry but come on; this goes way beyond the pale. He is supposed to know the law, he taught Constitutional Law in Illinois. So why does he continuously go along with the abrogation of the law for "security reasons" many of which are totally bogus? Why does he keep pushing the discredited Bu$h agenda if he is supposed to be about "change"?
Unlike most white folks, I don't hold the US Constitution up as some holy and sacrosanct document crafted by righteous and all wise white men; because it was the very document that codified slavery as a form of raising money for the US Treasury which also helped the South politically by allowing them to count our enslaved ancestors as three fifths of a person for Congressional apportionment purposes. "Slavery is seen in the Constitution in a few key places. The first is in the Enumeration Clause, where representatives are apportioned. Each state is given a number of representatives based on its population - in that population, slaves, called 'other persons,' are counted as three-fifths of a whole person. This compromise was hard-fought, with Northerners wishing that slaves, legally property, be uncounted, much as mules and horses are uncounted. Southerners, however, well aware of the high proportion of slaves to the total population in their states, wanted them counted as whole persons despite their legal status. The three-fifths number was a ratio used by the Congress in contemporary legislation and was agreed upon with little debate. In Article 1, Section 9, Congress is limited, expressly, from prohibiting the 'Importation' of slaves, before 1808. The slave trade was a bone of contention for many, with some who supported slavery abhorring the slave trade. The 1808 date, a compromise of 20 years, allowed the slave trade to continue, but placed a date-certain on its survival. Congress eventually passed a law outlawing the slave trade that became effective on January 1, 1808."
As noble as that may sound/read in reality the US Constitution also called for a ten dollar tax to be levied on imported persons, (they were talking about our ancestors but cunningly cloaked their intent and language by not using the words African or slaves). Article One Section 9 of the US Constitution reads, "The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight, but a Tax or duty may be imposed on such Importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each Person." That ten dollars went into the treasury of the fledgling nation. So you see the US government also made money off of the slave trade an issue proponents of reparations often over look!
But I digress, this is about Obama and the Nazification of the US of A. President Obama also signed an extension of the USA PATRIOT ACT a bill that eviscerates the US Constitution a bill that was originally signed by most Congress critters even though they never read it! A bill that had been written well before 9-11 even happened! Yet once more and again Obama the purported "man of change" signed an extension to a bill that undermines the basic rights and privacy of all of us.
Why am I making this a big deal? Because we've been down this road before. Read the Church and Pike Committee reports on abuses by the FBI and CIA during the 1970s which include COINTELPRO (FBI) and Operations CHAOS (CIA) and others. The Church Committee report said, "Our investigation has confirmed that warning. We have seen segments of our Government, in their attitudes and action, adopt tactics unworthy of a democracy, and occasionally reminiscent of the tactics of totalitarian regimes. We have seen a consistent pattern in which programs initiated with limited goals, such as preventing criminal violence or identifying foreign spies, were expanded to what witnesses characterized as 'vacuum cleaners', 'sweeping in information about lawful activities of American citizens.' The tendency of intelligence activities to expand beyond their initial scope is a theme which runs through every aspect of our investigative findings. Intelligence collection programs naturally generate ever-increasing demands for new data. And once intelligence has been collected, there are strong pressures to use it against the target. The pattern of intelligence agencies expanding the scope of their activities was well described by one witness, who in 1970 had coordinated an effort by most of the intelligence community to obtain authority to undertake more illegal domestic activity:
The risk was that you would get people who would be susceptible to political considerations as opposed to national security considerations, or would construe political considerations to be national security considerations, to move from the, kid with a bomb to the kid with a picket sign, and from the kid with the picket sign to the kid with the bumper sticker of the opposing candidate. And you just keep going down the line."
That was in the 1970s when what the Church and Pike Committees discovered was illegal. The US Congress, Bu$h's and Obama's actions now make such activity legal!! Obama just signed a bill that makes peaceful demonstrations near federal buildings or where special events take place a federal offense!!? We are at a moral crossroads and a critical juncture in our existence as a country. With his forays into Yemen, Somalia, Libya, by sending Special Ops into Uganda and prepping for war in Syria and Iran, Obama is proving he is as much a warmonger as any psychopathic white man. Obama the Bomber's increasing use of weaponized drones overseas and potentially here at home is alarming and should raise serious moral questions and concerns but they don't. The sight of riot clad police (the US version of the Nazi Gestapo?) beating up on peaceful Occupy Wall Street demonstrators while crooks like Jon Corzine of MF Global, Jamie Dimon of JP Morgan Chase and Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs go Scott free tells you a lot about where this country is and where it is headed.


The Undershepherd is Up to Parr

The Undershepherd is Up to Parr
March 22, 2012
By Raynard Jackson

Recently I attended a private screening of Russ Parr’s latest movie, “The Undersherpherd.”  I found the movie to be riveting and engaging.  The movie was independently written, produced, and directed by Parr.
Parr’s career has spanned from a stand-up comic, recording artist, top-rated, nationally-syndicated radio host heard weekdays by 3.2 million listeners in 25 cities across America, to independent filmmaker.
The Undershepherd is Parr’s 5th independently produced movie release.  The backdrop of the movie is set in the Black church.  It’s the tale of two ministers, LC (played by Isaiah Washington) and Roland (played by Lamman Rucker); they are best friends, brothers in Christ, ambitious, up and coming ministers who are paying their dues as humble servants in the ministry. They have each other’s backs as they work their way through the ranks of the First Baptist Church.
Serving under the leadership of Dr. Ezekial Canon (played by Bill Cobbs), the church’s well respected yet up in age pastor, LC and Roland both have dreams of one day becoming the eighty-year-old’s successor. The feeble Dr. Canon stubbornly refuses to step-down, forcing the two young ministers to make pivotal decisions about their futures in the ministry--decisions that will ultimately fray the fabric of their deeply woven friendship.
You will witness the ascension of evil through LC’s eyes as politics, kickbacks, adultery and cult-like practices become the culture under his leadership. You will also witness Roland’s struggle to create an honest church and pious ministry, which ultimately drives LC further away, at a time when Roland needs him most. You will witness the impact their decisions have on the lives of the other church leaders, the congregation and the community.  To view the movie trailer, go to:  (
Though the movie’s backdrop is the Black church, it is not an indictment of the Black church.  Let me repeat, it is not an indictment of the Black church; but rather an indictment on human frailty.  The church and religion are not bad things, but anytime you introduce humans into the equation, bad things can happen.
One of my comments to Parr about the movie was his portrayal of women.  It’s been a long time since I have seen strong Black women, but yet emotionally vulnerable, portrayed in a movie.  
Malinda Williams plays Cassandra Case, LC’s wife (played by Isaiah Washington).  She was determined to do anything to keep her man and keep her marriage together.  William’s character forces us to deal with issues that most would much rather pretend didn’t exist, especially in the Black community.
Robinne Lee plays Shirley, the wife of Roland (played by Lammond Rucker).  She represents what I call the “old school, traditional Black woman.”  She clearly will do anything to be supportive of her husband, even if it means deferring her own dreams because her dreams are inextricably wrapped up in her being the most loving, supportive wife she can be.  Her sweetness and strength softly comes through the camera.  It is undeniable that the camera loves her!
Isaiah Washington’s portrayal of LC is absolutely riveting.  Growing up in the Baptist church and graduating from Oral Roberts University, I could definitely relate to this movie in a very personal way.  In both institutions I was able to have an upclose and personal view of the personalities involved in the church.
Washington’s character reminds me of Denzel Washington’s portrayal of Alonzo Harris in the hit film, “Training Day.”  Again, both movies tell more about human nature than the two institutions they portray (the church and the police).
Roland is LC’s best friend.  He leaves First Baptist Church to start his own church only to realize that there is more to building a church than having a vision—afterall, it’s a business.
Russ Parr takes a common experience, going to church, and weaves it into a series of complex stories, while taking you on a mentally exhausting roller coaster ride that will make you laugh, cry, and smile; sometimes simultaneously.
Most Hollywood movies are so predictable—beginning, middle, and end.  They like endings that make the audience feel good. 
But, Parr refuses to use Hollywood formulas for his movies.  The Undershepherd does just the opposite—it makes you think and leaves you to make up your own conclusions about the movie. 
This is why the upcoming screening is going to be special.  The screening will be this Tuesday, March 27 at the AFI Silver Theater and Cultural Center in Silver Spring, MD.  After the screening, there will be a Q & A with Parr and several of the cast members.
If you know any people in the DC area, please encourage them to see this fine movie.  They can find out more details at:  (
While Parr is pursuing a distribution deal, let’s help him create some buzz about this film so we can hopefully see this movie in theatres across the country. 
Let’s help Russ prove to Hollywood that his movies are truly up to par!

Grenada Revolution - 33rd Anniversary

Tribute to Revolutionary Grenada
On the
33rd Anniversary of the Grenada Revolution!
Today, 13th March, 2012, Marks the 33rd anniversary of the Grenadian Revolution, led in 1979 by the great, Revolutionary Pan-Afrikanist, Maurice Bishop, and his party, the New Jewell Movement; and we the Afrikans of the world, stand united in paying tribute to this valiant Warrior-King and the Afrikan people of Grenada.
We hail the People's Revolutionary Government (PRG), which was formed on the day of the revolution, with Maurice Bishop as Prime Minister and the erudite educationalist, Bernard Coard (author of the seminal book, 'How the West Indian Child is Made Educationally Subnormal in British Schools'), as Deputy Prime Minister. The populist PRG brought great hope and inspiration to the people of Grenada, who had suffered for years under the yoke of the treacherous neo-colonialist, regime of Eric Geary and his Grenada United Labour Party; which were slavishly devoted to the interests of America and Britain, but brutally indifferent to the wellbeing of the beleaguered people of Grenada – 98% of whom were sons and daughters of Afrika.

The revolution was also a huge inspiration for Afrikans throughout the Caribbean and indeed the world. At its core was the attempt to implement the 'Black-print' of the Most Eminent Prophet and King, His Excellency: Marcus Mosiah Garvey as exemplified by Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah in revolutionary Ghana: restoring racial and cultural pride, economic self-reliance and autonomous nation building to the people. In fact, it was to the credit of Baba Maurice Bishop, Bernard Coard and other members of the PRG that they were ardent students of the lives and legacies of Papa Garvey and Papa Nkrumah, to the extent that they had designated the Birthday of Papa Garvey, 17th August, a national public holiday.
Alas, due to mounting political pressures, economic sanctions, constant military threats and a violent media offensive from the USA, compounded by internal rivalry and conflicts as well as reported CIA infiltration and destabilisation of the country, the revolution imploded on 19th October, 1983, providing the pretext for a long impending USA invasion, which deposed the remnants of the PRG. Sadly, Baba Maurice and members of his government were assassinated in the process and numerous Grenadian's were slaughtered whilst trying to defend their sovereign space and their beloved Prime Minister.
However, on this day of the 33rd anniversary of the Grenada Revolution, we affirm as we commemorate this event of great promise and sovereign aspirations, that the name of Baba Maurice Bishop, that gallant freedom fighter and the legacies of the People's Revolutionary Government of Grenada as well as the revolutionary spirit of the Grenadian people live on in the hearts and minds of our people worldwide and will never die. 
By the same token, the vision of the Most Eminent Prophet and King, His Excellency: Marcus Mosiah Garvey of "a free and redeemed Afrika," under the banner of "the United State of Afrika" that can "lend protection" to our people everywhere; and for the liberation of all "Afrikans at home and abroad" will surely prevail.
By the name of MWARI-Nyakusika (God the Creator) and Muzimu-Mukuru (Our great Ancestors), WE WILL WIN – our Liberation!!!
Unite organise now or perish!!!
Rise you mighty people!!!
