With the cry for justice from Black America most wanna know what we should be doing because what we've been doing has not been working at all. Marching, Protesting, Praying, Screaming, Fighting. But we still end up here again - victims of white supremacy/racism with no justice, peace, freedom, or equality.
I had the same question when Mike Brown was murder by Darren Wilson. So I went looking for how I can help in getting black liberation and not just marching for a few nights and that's it but an active 24/7 program with goals, structure, protocols, chain of command, aims, mission, etc. Most answers and programs I found didn't go deep enough or they just repeated the same thing, meaning it will have the same outcome.
Then I found The Nation of Islam. The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad said we need a nation of our nation, that it's better to teach separation than prayer. This blew me away because that’s thinking in terms of us having a nation, ruled and controlled by black people.
There are a lot of black nationalist groups - The most famous was led by Marcus Garvey but our great brother passed away in 1940. So today that kind of work, on that level, is led by The Nation of Islam.
The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad laid out in “The Muslim Program” both What The Muslims Want and What The Muslims Believe. Point #4 of What The Muslims Want reads:
“We want our people in America whose parents or grandparents were descendants from slaves, to be allowed to establish a separate state or territory of their own–either on this continent or elsewhere. We believe that our former slave masters are obligated to provide such land and that the area must be fertile and minerally rich. We believe that our former slave masters are obligated to maintain and supply our needs in this separate territory for the next 20 to 25 years–until we are able to produce and supply our own needs.
Since we cannot get along with them in peace and equality, after giving them 400 years of our sweat and blood and receiving in return some of the worst treatment human beings have ever experienced, we believe our contributions to this land and the suffering forced upon us by white America, justifies our demand for complete separation in a state or territory of our own.”
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrahakan backs it up with telling President Trump we will take 8 states just move your people out and we will move in. Now with our black nation in mind, we need to be able to self govern, produce our own educational, economic, political, judicial, and defense systems, etc. This was also laid out by The Minister in the 9 Ministries as follows: click the image to get the full description of each ministry
These to me are the best answers to the question of what we do now to get black liberation, freedom, justice, and equality.
Let me know your thoughts on our solution to the problem
What solution(s) do you have/suggest?
