WE MUST RETURN TO OUR AFRICAN SPIRITUALITY
WE MUST RETURN TO OUR ORIGINAL WAYS OF VENERATION IF THE POWERS OF THE UNIVERSE ARE EVER TO BE IN OUR FAVOR AGAIN!!!
The traditions of our Ancestors WILL once again be lifted up and we will shout their names aloud as we liberate ourselves and the future so those before us can look upon us and SMILE!!!
African Centered Discussions
NO YURUGU/NEGRO THOUGHT ALLOWED
TOPIC OF THE MONTH: Caucasoid/Foreign Religions and the Afrikan Psychosis
Yes, I have purposely kept this topic up because this is our most serious obstacle towards LIBERATION. This is a new part for my faithful readers. Check out this article submitted to The Naked Truth some time ago. E-MAIL me back with responses: CHRISTIAN MYTHOLOGY
Afrikan people especially in the united states have been trying to MAKE (force) foreign religions to be Afrikan. We have colored jesus black (hell, everyone in the bible); we have taken over allah; we are even morons, oops I mean mormons but the KEY question that is not asked is:
This question goes beyond just changing the images! Why are we sooooooooooooooooooooo afraid to reculture ourselves spiritually? We have people who can quote every African centered author, every vital book for Afrikan people, been to ALL ASCAC conferences, but they still subscribe to FOREIGN RELIGIONS!!! caucasoids have not only done a good job at getting Afrikans to hate/fear Afrikan ways but they have also made the WHOLE WORLD fear/hate these processes.
Also to squash one silly argument now, this author has done enough study of our indigenous systems to know that there is actually more similarity in concepts than individual practices and names. I say this because some argue, "Africa is so diverse that there is no "African Spirituality." This has been studied and can be concretely refuted as not true. As Dr. Diop let us know there was a Cultural Unity, within that, there is a Spiritual Unity. All over the continent, we understand the importance of spirituality in our daily lives; we understand the use and effectiveness of Ancestor Veneration-all over the continent; we created Creation Stories 1) before EVERYONE ELSE 2) BEFORE the LEGEND of an adam or eve, and 3) that are more profound and explain the Universe BETTER than the genesis stuff; we understand the principle of Duality and the encompassing "ONE," this could go on and on. The main point is that over and over again back home, the spiritual concepts are where the spiritual unity of the continent express themselves, so readers, please never let anyone snow you with this fallacious, unresearched, uneducated argument. This is covering a lot, but going back to the first point, I challenge my Afrikan readers who "call" themselves African Centered to ask yourselves, "Why am I afraid to return to an ancient/traditional Afrikan Spiritual system in my own day-to-day life? What has been implanted into MY OWN psyche to make me fear the DEEPEST/MOST PROFOUND part of my Afrikan self? And what will it take for me to uproot this incorrect information and fully return home?" These are individual questions that only each person can answer and change for themselves.
"Oppression REQUIRES the dissociation of the oppressed from themselves; that they deny themselves, in service to their oppressors; that they avoid identifying with their ORIGINAL PERSONALITY and perceive identification with it as detrimental to their survival. The rejection of their authentic selves on the part of the oppressed is a necessary preparatory step to their replacement by artificial, manipulable selves socially manufactured by their oppressors" (Amos Wilson The Falsification of Afrikan Consciousness pg. 133)
Eminent european scholar Gerald Massey was asked should the bible be taught in schools in the early 1900's. This was his response: "The same correspondent desires to know whether I would exclude the [b]ible from our children's schools. Most Certainly. I would have the [b]ible-basis superseded from all future teaching as unscientific, immoral and false to the facts in nature. The mass of people who are [b]ible-taught never get free from the erroneous impressions stamped on their minds in their infancy, so that their manhood or womanhood can have no intellectual fulfillment, and millions of them only attain mentally to a sort of second childhood." Gerald Massey's Lectures page 104)
