By Fahim A. Knight-El

It still surprises me that many black people and people in general, throughout the United States of America still do not understand that the concept of democracy is an illusion. Let me go right into my topic and analyze the recent election of President-Elect Donald Trump, thus the first thing we must understand is that Trump did not win based on our vote nor did Hillary Clinton lose because of our vote; it has always appeared to me that the Electoral College votes on the surface had more credence in voting the president in than the popular vote (Hillary Clinton actually won the popular vote but lost the election). Both of them have been good operatives and servants of the Hidden Hand and Invisible Rulers no different than President Barack Obama and all prior U.S. presidents and heads of state who were appointed by them. There are mainly three powerful entities that are responsible for setting the global table and determining domestic and global affairs, which means selecting presidents and heads of states, as well as other low-level operatives to serve as frontmen and women and do their bidding. These hidden individuals control the entire world banking and financial systems, and dictate the rise and fall of all global economies—the wealth of the earth is control by this powerful elite minority secretly known as the Rulers of the World; all the reserve currency is at their dictates and discretion. China, Russia, United States, Great Britain, France, Italy, etc., and all other world nation’s functions at their will and pleasure. So we must first understand that our vote do not mean a damn thing, it is only an illusion that we live in a participatory democracy and this gives us false value, which is designed to dim our will to revolt and overturn these Hidden despots and tyrannical leaders. 

Donald Trump's business and economic success (his so-called wealth) was a very clear indication that he has had long standing ties with those faceless and nameless Elitist who are consider the rulers of the world and they had, perhaps giving him instructions and marching orders along time ago and he has been a faithful operative before they made the decision to make him U.S. commander-in-chief. Like President Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, etc., these frontmen were selected for office and not elected. They ordinarily are mandated to take two oaths, one that is giving in front of a public audience in which the president-elect is swore-in to uphold the U.S. constitution and dutiful carry out their legal and lawful duties to defend and protect the constitution against all foreign and domestic enemies in which this solemn oath is traditionally giving on the Bible (which is considered along with square and compass as one of the Masonic working tools). Yet, each U.S. president is giving a black book which contains 250 years of U.S. Government Secrets this book contains numerical codes and sacred geometry that has been passed down by great ancient mystics and other wisdom imparted by some of the Founding Fathers such as George Washington, a Freemason and by those others who were initiated into the Order of Rosicrucians and they are sworn-in to never admit nor reveal some of the hidden codes to anyone and can be spoken of only in the presences of another past U.S. president or in the hidden chambers of the Invisible Rulers. These past and present Grand and Supreme Architects are members and leaders in some the most powerful secret societies on earth and maintain a global presences in every nation.

They are behind the wars in Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq and it is they who are behind the internal religious and sectarian wars and disputes taking place in the Islamic world, in particular between factions of Shia and Sunni Islam that has engulfed the Middle East for over three decades. They consistently use the propaganda machines of mass media to ensure that these induced religious civil wars are viewed by the mass public as an extension of the so-called 'war on terror’; they are also behind the economic downfall of the economy of Greece and just recently with the United Kingdom deciding to exited the European Union—they had insulated this economic and political move by appearing to shift world currency in the Bank of England to ensure a smooth and uninterrupted economic transition—they wanted to further expand the Euro and at same time create an illusion that the British pound would have more value relative to inflation and spending power and then reintroduce the pound as a viable currency back on the world money market. They also were behind inducing the economic collapse of the United States economy in 2008, which led to rearranging Wall Street and restructuring how the global financial markets will interact in the New World Order schemes. They devalued the United States dollar and sent the world economy into a tailspin and in reality, it still has not recovered. Trump takes his orders directly from the Bilderberg, Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations just as all of the prior U.S. presidents and his loyalty won him favor to sit in the Oval Office and he will carry out the hidden agenda.

Trump has been the beneficiary of the North American Free Trade Agreement and  General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT); he used cheap oversees markets and labor in the Far East and Mexico that was caused by U.S. corporate downsizing and outsourcing to enhance his brand and has made billions of dollars off of Bill Clinton's International policies. Trump was giving a master plan during this presidential election; the master decision makers understood that there was a mood of dissatisfaction lurking over America that somewhat stemmed from President Barack Obama being elected in 2008 and 2012 as our commander-in-chief, but the root of the dissatisfaction revolved around race and they gave Trump the game plan to tap into America's most unresolved social dilemma, which was the question of race that has haunted America for over 250 years. Even President Barack Obama was in on these manipulations in which coming into office they had train him on how to play the game of high stakes and what the House of Cards truly meant. Here is an African (or at least of Negroid descent) being invited partially into the house by some of the most powerful men in the world and they ordered him to learn the rules and then gave him the mandate of hearing and obeying (make no mistake about U.S. presidents do not run the country they are figureheads and puppets who take their orders from the Hidden Hand). Thus, he too has been a very good servant and a low-level operative and they will continue to further reward him when his presidential term is over. Donald Trump is a peon and his wealth is very minuscule in comparison to the wealth and power of those who he works for. 

Trump became the most recent recipient of a dark past; he used overt and covert language to trigger the fears of white America. Since the 9/11 hoax and the so-called war on terror which has led to Gestapo agencies such as the office of Homeland Security being established and various legislation and executive orders that were enacted to impede upon American citizens civil liberties; it also has led to the discrimination and religious intolerance aimed at Muslim Americans in which many Americans believed that Islam and Muslims are our number one enemies. Trump went on a vicious public attack against Muslims that was rooted in the old historical context of the Crusades of the 11th and 12th Century and like the Jesuits and the Knights Templars he as a white Knight drew his sword in the sand and unlike defending the Christians and Jews quest to settle in the Holy Land of Jerusalem—Trump was giving a mandate to move the global world closer to a One World Government and the New World Order.

President Richard Nixon in his book titled, "Seize the Moment: America's Challenge In A One-Superpower", Nixon authored this book in 1991, and he warned the West that if we did not do a better job understanding the various factions of international Islam relative to the schisms and cultures these variables would have the potential to become problematic, in particular  if the Islamic world ever become united around theology. The Europeans are more interested in searching out the coming of the Mahdi because they understand they must keep the Islamic world divided and coming together it could pose a legitimate political, economic and social nuisance to the West and the East, in particular with Russia and China aligning themselves with so-called radical Islamic factions in Iraq, Iran and Syria (and selling weapons and even militarizing some of America's enemies). Nixon further stated that Islam could pose itself to become our number one enemy and a threat to world peace (of course many of us saw this notion as mere propaganda). However, after the Cold War came to an abrupt end in 1989, the stage was set to create an illusionary enemy, which became Islam and the Muslim World. Trump's attacks against Muslim and Islam was rooted in a deep seated Islamophobia and Trump was smart enough in 2016 to raise the conscious level about U.S. national security interest and once again with tough talk about ending Muslim and Arab immigration from entering the United States, it was steadily growing political traction--more from a rhetoric perspective. Some would argue that Trump shared a more deeper concern with the electorate, which was, how do we contain domestic terrorism that is so-called caused by U.S. Enemy Combatants and some believe that the Obama's administration and the U.S. Justice Department have been to lax and ineffective, and trump promise to carry a big stick diplomacy in dealing with Muslims both at home and abroad? He also promised his constituents that he would be a law and order president and he reached out to reactionaries like Rudy Giuliani and Governor Chris Christie. He also received huge support from the National Rifle Association (NRA) and the Second Amendment Right to the U.S. Constitution advocators; these gun toting patriots shared a theme in which NRA who has viewed certain forces within the Democratic Party who desired to limited American civil liberties by passing legislation to take their guns away and Trump was politically savvy enough to ensure this powerful and influential lobby that he was their candidate and would veto any legislation coming from the Congress that would infringe upon their right to bear arms. 

If you notice when he was running during the primaries Trump was like an attack dog the other 19 or 20 Republican Candidates such as season political veterans Senator Ted Cruz, Governor John Kasich, Governor Jeb Bush, Senator Marco Rubio, etc., were longstanding traditional politicians, who were well financed and who thought they had the pulse and grasp of the political issues which they considered important and germane to the American citizens. Trump was a political novice who had no political experience of holding a public office; Trump's campaign and victory also served as a referendum of rejection of the traditional Republican Party's message and their views on conservatism and/or may be Trump just appeared as a breathe of fresh air because perhaps even the political right had grown tired of the political gridlock on Capitol Hill. Trump ran truly as an outsider (not really he has always been and insider) and most of the top Republicans such as Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senator Mitch McConnell did not back Trump, but he diverted their influence by taking his message directly to the people and his victory was a shock and an upstage of the tradition Republican Party so-called having endorsement power. His victory served notice that they did not have the political influence to derail his bid to become president of the United States and/or his election represented a new day in American politics where the electorate had political aspirations that went against all the conventional political wisdom that surrounded the 2016 U.S. presidential election; the majority of the political polls had Hillary Clinton head and most predicted it would be a lopsided victory for Mrs. Clinton. Trump was unique in many ways, he did not take a lot money from special interest groups and lobbyist in which being a billionaire, he financed his own campaign. This for better or worse, allowed him to control his message and not be swayed by Washington insiders.

However, initially you could tell his understanding of U.S. foreign policy and the Middle East was rooted in ignorance and shallowness—his knowledge of world geography was poor; yet his campaign continued to garnish momentum and by using the code word slogan ‘Lets Make America Great again’, Trump totally understood these words were shrouded historically in the mythology context of race and privilege and they would have an emotional charge for a large segment of the American populist, which was rooted in the white backlash of electing an African American president twice. Trump totally understood those racist sentiments were out there and everywhere he spoke he drew large audiences of mainly white males whom felt that the traditional Republican Party had abandoned their core values.  This slogan was being interpreted by the recent American society of angry white men to mean, we have lost America to the blacks and Latino immigrants and whether we agree with Trump or not undocumented and illegal aliens, who have crossed the border, have socially and economically impacted the American taxpayers relative to them  accessing American services, but simultaneously corporate America has been the equal beneficiaries of cheap immigrant labor coming out of Central and South America; they are the principle laborers in U.S. agribusiness . Trump tapped into white dissension, which allowed him to redraw the United States electoral map relative to what political scientist had deemed to be red states (who voted Republican) and blue states (who voted Democrat) was altered by Trump’s presidential victory in 2016 in favor of the Republican Party (and once the establishment Republicans look back they would owe the Trump movement a debt of gratitude because possibly in the political short term and long term the Republican Party will be the beneficiary of Trump's phenomenon 2016 presidential election.

Trump's appeal of recreating America and bringing jobs back to America resonated with a large portion of our American society, but many past blue collar working towns that had been economically decimated by the fall of American industrialism over 50 years ago where manufacturing and products were made in the United States created an economic vacuum and Trump appealed to a nostalgic aura that has been lost in time and never to return—he knew deep down inside he was selling them a false bill of goods. Trump did not tell them that once an economic system can no longer expand and produce it dies and another economic system rises. Let me the bearer of bad news Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Michigan, etc., I do not care how many promises Trump makes, the economy that many of your great-great grandparents carved out an existence, is gone forever in which to never return (Clinton and Bush sealed that deal). Just reason with me the capitalist is not concern about social justice and really are not concern with politics; they want to know how will public policy affect foreign trade, international banking, Wall Street and how will this impact the Gross Domestic Product equation for themselves. America can no longer compete with cheap raw materials and cheap labor overseas.

Trump will continue to be a good servant for the international bankers and will hasten the divide between the 'haves and Havenots' by working to further strengthening the central banking system by continuing to agitate wars with so-called radical Islam and inducing wars are a source of global revenue in which to feed the fat cats in Basil, Switzerland, London, Hong Kong, Paris, Moscow, New York, Tel Aviv, Beijing, Johannesburg, Tokyo, etc. the duping allows for the Hidden Hand to carry out these diabolic plans and maneuvers by keeping the masses distracted (with disinformation and propaganda) while they continue to rob the world of all its conceivable and unconceivable wealth and natural resources. Former President Bill Clinton was an international bankers go between fronting for the likes of Goldman Sachs and spearing heading global initiatives being led by the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, which set themselves up to exploit more oil reserves on the African continent in anticipating Arab oil drying up and or political instability. Africa is still being raped of its wealth and natural resources since the Portuguese arrived on the coast of West Africa in the 1440s.

ISISL just reminds me of another Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) machination in which this so-called radical and militant Islamic group is in bed with the United States, Russia and Israel in which Bashar Hafez al-Assad of Syria is being used by various foreign entities—Hillary Clinton and Obama knew they had to remove Muammar Gadhafi, the long standing Libyan leader in order establish new foreign alignments and establish new geopolitical landscapes in all of the Maghreb region of North Africa. The Seven Oil Sisters have viewed Gadhafi’s Socialist Regime for over 40 years as a political and economic nuisance to their oil revenue stream, therefore, France, United States and Great Britain used their military intelligence and military capability to assassinate the Libyan leader.

Secretary of State Clinton were being paid handsome speaking honorariums by Goldman Sachs at $650,000 a clip and made it clear that she had a public agenda and a private agenda—the private agenda was perhaps a lot more dangerous and sinister than her public messages and political stances. I saw Hillary Clinton, as being a lot more dangerous and sinister than Donald Trump, but sense she is a Democratic candidate, she gets a free pass from so-called African Americans. But one does not become U.S. Secretary of State unless you know how to play the deceptive foreign policy game—trust me she knows a lot more about the Benghazi hit than she was letting on. When she became U.S. Secretary of State, she used her international influence to assist her husband former President Bill Clinton by positioning him and exerting her State Department international influence to economically empower Bill Clinton’s Global Initiative foundation (so-called non-profit humanitarian organization). She used her high profile status as U.S. Secretary of State to broker diplomatic and economic deals for her husband's so-called non-profit Global Initiative in which would ensure international influence and funnel billions of dollars into the triangle of power arrangement between the global bankers, themselves and other members in the United States Government. The Hidden Hand liked the Clintons, because they have been good servants but Hillary Clinton was starting to get a little sloppy; they signed onto the Bill Clinton's Global Initiative front and provided him with unlimited resources to coral Africa and other Developing Nations, but Hillary and Bill who have  for over 40 years used their gifts and talents as an asset to remain in good favor of the Un-Seen Hand however, their recent public image was starting to create a political liability and the Circle, with in a Circle decided to make Donald Trump their man.            

Bill Clinton’s Global Initiative is a very powerful foundation and it was established to lobby nations that sought his international influence (Bill ‘Slick Willie’ was in the business of selling influence and is very good at it). Moreover, Bill Clinton has raked in millions of dollars advising Developing Nations by securing them high interest international loans via the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank and further using his international influence to impact the political, economic and social systems of client nations. Also the Clinton-Bush Fund allegedly got 54 million dollars for the Haiti Relief Fund after the 2010 devastating earthquake that registered 7.0 magnitude on the Richter scale, which killed more than 230,000 people in Haiti. Bush and Clinton were two rogues who stole a lot money that was earmarked for the Haiti Government. (reference: Peter Schweizwer: Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich).

Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton have always enjoyed a high level of respectability amongst African Americans in which was almost equated to him having celebrity status within the black community (yet Blacks did not come out and vote for Hillary Clinton at the same statistical rate that they voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012 and Hispanics were divided in Florida on Trump). Although, I could never understand the infatuation blacks had towards President Clinton. He after all, along with Senator Newt Gengrich (R-Georgia) former Speaker of the House and the Republican reactionary Congress in the 1990s went on a vicious campaign against the poor of America. These vicious entities inevitable blamed and scapegoated the collapse of America on the poor (women and families) people who were receiving Aid For Dependent Children, which led to a rancorous political assault against Human Services and social programs that benefited the needy and the poor of America. President Clinton justified these governmental programs revisions in the name of siding with the Republicans to better manage so-called big government and the poor became expendable and vulnerable under the eight (8) year reign of the Clinton Administration.

These budget cuts trickledown to hurt poor blacks, poor Latinos and poor whites; this is the same President Bill Clinton that gave greater way to United States Prison Industrial Complex (via the 1994 Crime Bill) in which more black men became incarcerated under the Democrat Clinton than under the Republican President George Herbert Walker Bush. Thus, not only that, it was President Bill Clinton that established and signed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) that eventually led to American companies heading south of the border to exploit Developing Nations like Mexico in which devastated the domestic employment market inside the country and America has since turned our corporate lifeblood over to Wal-Mart and covertly deemed this as the new 21st Century industry of America. What a pity; does anyone else see these scams?

Stay Awake Until We Meet Again

By Fahim A. Knight-El

I know that many apologists and pundits have weighed in on the Colin Kaepernick’s rebellion in which I and other socially conscious and enlightened black leaders and activist have been engaged in this conversation for decades and centuries. Yet, I applaud this young black athlete for daring to risk his career as a professional football player in order to bring public attention to the high incidents of racially motivated killings of unarmed black men by white police officers. These killings of black men, have a long history in America since our sojourn begin in 1555—lynching and violence against black men, is American as apple pie and baseball. Kaepernick stated: "These aren’t new situations. This isn’t new ground. There are things that have gone on in this country for years and years and have never been addressed, and they need to be. There’s a lot of things that need to change. One specifically? Police brutality. There’s people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable. People are being given paid leave for killing people. That’s not right. That’s not right by anyone’s standards". The Treyvone Martin case in my opinion set a legal and social precedent that declared open season on black men.

Kaepernick goes on to state: “People of color have been targeted by police. So that’s a large part of it and they’re government officials. They are put in place by the government. So that’s something that this country has to change. There’s things we can do to hold them more accountable. Make those standards higher. You have people that practice law and are lawyers and go to school for eight years, but you can become a cop in six months and don’t have to have the same amount of training as a cosmetologist. That’s insane. Someone that’s holding a curling iron has more education and more training than people that have a gun and are going out on the street to protect us". Most white Americans are a bit hypocritical and they easily forget that the American flag is a symbol of freedom to them and their ancestors due to European settlements in 1607, into the so-called ‘new world’ in which they stole North America (and the Americas) from the Native Americans who had lived in this part of the world for over 16,000 years prior to European settlements. They had migrated by crossing the Bering Strait from Asia—the United States flag symbolizes for white people sovereignty and nationhood, which declared them free from centuries of British colonial rule culminating with the American Revolutionary War in 1776.

However, the U.S. flag and national anthem, have a different meaning to white  Americans than it does to black Americans; it is difficult for us to overlook the history of tyranny carried out by the racially inspired despots throughout the history of the United States of America; nevertheless, some of us desire to be politically correct in front of white folk, but behind closed doors many of us share Colin Kaepernick’s political dissention, because deep down inside our history of oppression and subjugation is rooted in our DNA and the murdering of innocent black people by white supremacist police officers is reprehensible and it touches our souls. Many of these white officers never get indicted and/or charged and some of them are even exonerated and/or remedied by Internal Affairs agencies via a so-called bureaucratic process and/or are found not guilty by jury trials (some have even been found civilly wrong but not criminally responsible). This is often viewed by the black community and the families of the victims as clear evidence that the judicial and criminal justice systems are rigged and black folk cannot receive justice. The deaths of Eric Gardner, Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, Sandra Bland, Laquan McDonald, Tamir Rice, Walter Scott, Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, etc. But there are countless other black men who are faceless that have been killed by white law enforcement and their cases have never made it to the national news.

The deaths of these black victims only serves as a reminder of the history of hatred, racism and injustice that both the Confederate flag and the American flag have historical had on people of African descent despite of our loyalty and commitment to consider ourselves American citizens (the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments to the United States Constitution don't mean a damn thing to some of us). This nation fought a 4/1/2 year bloody Civil War (1861-1865) the so-called South verse the North where slavery was the central theme of this conflict in which southern states desired to maintain the most profitable economic system ever recorded in American history known as chattel slavery (this evil system lasted for 310 years) where the south attempted to succeed from the Union. 

Kaepernick decided that he had a moral obligation to bring attention to these racist motivated social issues by not standing up during the singing of the national anthem as a protest gesture against black injustices; he stated: "Yes. I’ll continue to sit. I’m going to continue to stand with the people that are being oppressed. To me, this is something that has to change. When there’s significant change and I feel like that flag represents what it’s supposed to represent, this country is representing people the way that it’s supposed to, I’ll stand". Thus, once again let me applaud this athlete for having the courage and audacity to use one of the biggest stages in American culture to bring attention to the social injustices that affects disproportionally African Americans, in particular cases involving police brutality. Kaepernick’s position was brave and if I could have had a personal word with him, I would told him, that I drew the same conclusion some years ago and refused to stand up for the saluting of the American flag and the singing of the national anthem.  

Kaepernick understood the United States Constitution better than most of us and was exercising his right to freedom of expression, which was protected by law. His protest should have been immediately received as protected speech under the First Amendment Right to the U.S. Constitution and in my opinion every black athlete should have stood with him in solidarity, because they have a huge stage, which commands huge influence beyond just the world of sport and play.  Yes, their collective stance and action would have created mutiny in the sports world, but it would have forced these professional sports conglomerates to view the black athlete different other than just being a Negro commodity. The National Football League is a huge corporation and possesses tremendous economic and political influence, but this well oiled machine has prospered from the gifts and talents of the black athlete (high priced modern slaves and gladiators). I am of the opinion that the NFL has a moral and social obligation to use its power and wealth to support individuals like Colin Kaepernick who sees the broader picture about social issues that affects our community.

Kaepernick's stance is reminding the NFL that the black athlete do not live in a glass house; here is a league that is probably over 65% black men, the issues that affects black men in the larger society cannot be ignored by a league who has built a powerful entertainment economic enterprise off the backs of the same black men who comes from these same communities and demographics and social-economic backgrounds as the victims who are being targeted by white law enforcement and their quick to discover that their newfound success (which often constitute a world of materialism) do not make them immune from being arrested while driving black (they might can change their zip codes, but they cannot change their skin color) and can easily become victims themselves of police brutality regardless of their wealth and celebrity status.  The NFL could and should put more investment dollars in these urban black poor and disenfranchised communities as opposed to creating gentrification opportunities for big corporate real estate investors, which often devalue and steal poor and oppressed people's property to build arenas and playing fields and shopping centers that push poor people out and then revalue the property at astronomical tax values they are not helping to empower black communities. This is the real crime.  

Kaepernick chose to use his high profile image to challenge racism and injustice relative to the above mentioned police brutality cases that have seen innocent black men killed by white law enforcement these injustices compelled him to act; he sought to kneel during the playing of the American national anthem, but his dissention was to challenge what was deemed by him as being a fundamental contradiction to the concept of American democracy, which was rooted in a double standard of American hypocrisy (Chattel Slavery and America's history of racism have created a longstanding social and political dichotomy relative to how some black Americans view patriotism and loyalty); the 310 years of dehumanization will always act like a ghost and haunt America in the area of race relations, which was one of the greatest crimes that have ever been committed against humanity. This history has never been rectified (it can only be resolved when reparation and justice is dispensed to the ex-slaves); moreover, some believe that Kaepernick's stance was the epitome of unpatriotic conduct, which stood as a shameful act for an American citizen to commit against the United States Government and their symbols of sovereignty. Kaepernick stated “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color.”

Those who criticized him refuses to look beyond their own biases that is driven by emotionalism he was clear about his position, he no longer could stand for the American flag until the injustices are halted and black and brown people are treated with fairness and is protected by the law (once again Kaepernick's stance was only a small reminder that the national anthem and the American flag means two distinct things to black America and white America). Lets not mistakenly expect this young black athlete to be viewed in the same breathe and light of Marcus Garvey, W.E.B Dubois, Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr., Louis Farrakhan, Muhammad Ali, Huey P. Newton, Bobby Seale, Fred Hampton, Mark Clark, etc., These men dared to alter world history by challenging the status quo and the powers-that-be. Sometime it’s mere circumstances that propels us to stand up against injustice—I do not necessarily think that Kaepernick is a student of Black Nationalism and he is probably not a student of radical militant politics, but yet the mass mediums and many in white America would make all types of attempts and assumptions to associate his position with leftist and perhaps even with anarchist groups and ideologies and try to mis-categorize his quest for black social justice by relegating his activism with acts of treason and sedition. But black people still in 2016 who are so-called Americans cannot receive justice and are victims of a highly charged racist police departments throughout America this what is fueling Kaepernick's dissent. 

Kaepernick stepped outside of what is expect from the black athlete, they are not paid to become political symbols and pursue political or social justice issues, in particular those issues that deals with race are taboo, and yet Kaepernick's position broke rank with his expectations as an athlete and in today’s era of market brands and being politically correct in which athletes are more concern with marketing themselves for the next contract and pursuing Madison Avenue endorsements rather than standing up for issues that might spark controversy and tarnish their brand (to do what Kaepernick is doing is unique and it is outside of selfishness and ‘me-ism’ that most entertainers and athletes have succumb to in 2016). Trust me Kaepernick will pay a heavy price for his social rebellion; he will be vilified and isolated and will be viewed by the National Football League corporation as a cancer, which must not be allowed to take root and spread amongst other players. The NFL Players Labor Union will not back Kaepernick because his action has the potential to disrupt labor and could cause huge profit losses to the NFL corporation. They desire to sit idly by and attempt to ignore the wealth disparities, the modus operandi of the Prison Industrial Complex, and the militarization of the police departments. Kaepernick's stance only says to us and the NFL, we have a problem and we cannot pretend these social issues do not exist and to ignore Kaepernick's broader argument will only acerbate the American divide.

The National Football League views Kaepernick's protest as perhaps a public relations nightmare because athletes are paid to perform and entertain and not to promote real social justice and although some black athletes such as Jim Brown, Curt Flood, Muhammad Ali , John Carlos and few others decided to be more than just an athlete; they took up the mantle of social justice. Tommy Smith and John Carlos at the 1968 Mexico City Olympic Games these two courageous athletes stood on the podium that day upon receiving their gold and bronze medals respectively raised their black gloved fist in solidarity of the Black Power Movement. They decided on that big stage to let the world know that they were in agreement with the resistance and the revolutionary movement that was being spearheaded by the black vanguard of our struggle respectively known as the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense in the 1960s. They refused to turn a blind eye to oppression and injustice. They were clear about the political stand they took. But former heavyweight boxing champion of the world George Foreman grab the American flag and ran around the stadium. His reactionary political stance was to show White America that he was a good loyal Negro and to also let the former slave master children know he was an 'American' and that he didn't support the Black Power movement. Frederick Douglass once stated in a speech "what to the slave is the 4th July".

Some of you may recall the former Louisiana State University (LSU) and Denver Nuggets National Basketball Association basketball player Mahmoud Abdul Rauf  (aka Chris Jackson) who converted to the religion of Al-Islam and he too like Kaepernick in the mid 1990s took issue with pledging allegiance to the U.S. flag and standing for the singing of the national anthem. These symbols and notion of patriotism did not resonate with Rauf’s conversion to his new faith tradition of Al-Islam and although, his dissention was rooted more in a religious protest in which he had an affirmation to reconcile his belief in the Five Pillars of Islam in which caused him as a Muslim to question whether or not he could pay homage to the sovereignty of a nation that had stood for oppression and tyranny. Yet, I think both Kaepernick and Rauf shared a central theme, which was drawing the conclusion that America had a history of unresolved injustices and, perhaps after closely reading the words and interpreting the national anthem, it led them both see the hypocrisy and the social contradictions; it also, perhaps brought both of them to the question of race and justice in America. Thus, being black and living the black experience it was easy for them to see two Americas one black and one white. I remember Rauf standing in a Muslim prayers position while the national anthem was being played perhaps as a respectful denunciation.  

He was vehemently criticized for showing his allegiance to Allah (God) and although, Rauf’s protest was rooted deeply in the injustices aimed at black Americans but his argument was more shrouded in the complexities of Islam relative to the American culture in the 1990s of course a lot has changed domestically and globally since Rauf made his protest perhaps over 20 years ago, but yet Kaepernick's protest serves as proof positive that a lot still remain the same in America two decades later. Kaepernick's motivation to challenge the status quo was tied directly to race and class and wealth disparity and injustice. The above mentioned high profile police brutality incidents sensitized him to speak out and condemn the innocent killings of black men by white law enforcement officers. Yes, he has been ridiculed by some and praised by others, which has led to some NFL football players not standing for the national anthem as well and even some college and high school players have joined onto Kaepernick's protest; if nothing else Kaepernick's protest has restarted a conversation relative to social justice. The question relative to free speech is, how do we act and receive speech in which we disagree, that is the litmus test to determining our so-called constitutional freedoms and our level of tolerance as a society?    

Lastly, like many so-called African Americans this past summer, I watched the summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil in which my interest was to see and applaud the African American/African athletes and to celebrate their accomplishments. They all seem so proud to stand on the podium as so-called Americans in receiving their Gold, Silver and Bronze metals and seeing the American flag being risen and the United States National Anthem being sung must of have sent goose bumps down their spines. But I immediately had to gather myself in recognizing what these young black athletes had accomplished for America and yet simanteously think about the way black people are treated by United States Government and the U.S. police departments at home, it is this contradiction that immediately soured my taste to accept and recognize American patriotism being displayed as less than genuine. I looked at Brazil, which was colonized by the Portuguese and next to the United States, it was Brazil where the most African slaves were transported against their will during the Transatlantic Slave Trade and the Middle Passage.

The media mostly show you the light skinned mulatto Brazilians, but there are over 20 million black Brazilians who are descendants of ex-slaves that the media in Rio do not show you. So I will always salute our right to be treated as human beings and not just be celebrated during athletic events to add to America's medal count. I salute our right to attain complete freedom and be treated under the banner of freedom, justice and equality. Moreover, anyone of these African American, Afro-Caribbean and or African athletes, etc., could be killed in America by white racist police law enforcement. So as we raise the American flag, I think about Sandra Bland, Treyvone Martin, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, etc., and the recent deaths of other Black men at the hands of racist American police officers. I think about the over 100 million African slaves who were kidnapped, raped, dehumanized and enslaved (they were so-called Americans and my tears are for them and my ancestors runs deep). Yes, Black Lives Matter beyond these damn Olympic Games; do not ask me to stand when the flag is being raised and put my hand over my heart when you are still killing us in the streets. One of my idols Muhammad Ali threw his gold medal (Ali won a gold medal in the 1960 Rome Games as a light-heavy weight boxer) in the river. Ali was a free black man and who debunked the shackles of a modern day slave. Treat black people as true Americans and not just during the Olympic Games. Black Lives Matter beyond adding gold metals to America’s count. Thank you Colin Kaepernick for rekindling this much needrd conversation that evolves around social justice, race, class and white privilege.

Stay Awake Until We Meet Again
Fahim A. Knight-El

Wednesday, September 7, 2016


by Bro. Fahim A. Knight-El
Peace: family and friends, I am always searching and looking for topics and issues that relates and impact the African American community (I found no topic more fitting than to discuss Health, Nutrition, Diet and Wellness). Some of my immediate family members and even close friends have had some serious health challenges and I can remember being in the  hospital with a very close relative of mine during a major heart surgery and my daughter told me that her mom, which is my wife had posted a photo of this family member on Facebook. She was being transparent about this close relative health a little more than I wanted her to be, but she thought that by posting this particular health situation on social media, it would inform those in the black community of need to become more health conscious. It was her way of keeping people updated with this personal matter, it was a honorable thing to do, because many in the black community had personal relations with this brother and friend. I got that but I have always felt health was something personal and I still struggle with aspects of being transparent even with my wife and my family in this area.

I would be remised, if I did not briefly mention the loss of one of the greatest natural healers in the world named Dr. Sebi who was assassinated in a Honduras, Central America jail. Dr. Sebi was a homeopathic specialist who was a master of herbal science and natural medicine, he was accused in the State of New York of practicing medicine without a license and was indicted in a federal court and his cased made all the way to the Supreme Court. The allegations were that he had falsely cured patients of AIDS and stage four cancer by using herbal and natural treatments and therapies, which went against occidental medicine. Dr. Sebi demonstrated proof that indeed he had cured black people from various diseases and he was one of the few natural healers who took on the American Medical Association and the conglomerate pharmaceutical companies (legal complaints against Dr. Sebi were initial filed by United States Department of Agriculture and the Center For Disease Control) and won standing on the medicinal principles of herbal and natural healing as being effective treatments. This past May 2016, Sebi who was 82 years of age and was reentering Honduras where he was a  naturalized citizen (I do think Dr. Sebi had dual citizenship) and he had declared $27,000 USD, but he was arrested on charges of money laundering and placed in a depilated jail in a 'third world' country (poor food, poor living condition and plenty of prison corruption). Honduras officials had a previous charge on Dr. Sebi of  so-called smuggling in $55,000 USD, which had been adjudicated, but they attempted to run these two cases concurrent. We do know this much Dr. Sebi the Natural Healer died in the custody of the Honduras Government of so-called complications from pneumonia (now, for the record Dr. Sebi was more than capable of dealing with a mucous virus). I think there was some foul play in Dr. Sebi's death the powers-that-be did not want people being cured and healed from cheaper natural therapies. We should call for President Barack Obama and the U.S. Justice Department and the State Department to open up an investigation into the Honduran Government and truly find out what happened to Dr. Sebi.         

Now, before I delve into this topic on health, diet, nutrition and wellness let me say a few words to my African American brothers; brothers listen to your wives and get up and go get those annual physicals (we as black men must take better care of ourselves)--prostrate cancer (we should get regular PSA screenings) is killing us at a very high rate and, if you are over 50 years of age (black men hate to go to the doctor until we are almost dead) get a colonoscopy from a natural homeopathic doctor or specialist, because colon cancer is taking us out as well. To my beautiful Nubian Queens stay on us, because you need your husbands and your children need their fathers. If you do not know this by now many of us are walking a round having the silent killer high blood pressure (Hypertension), but you can cure yourselves with a vegan diet, exercising and making better life choices (brothers give up the smoking, alcohol, and the drugs lets start right there). Lets make commitment to changing our life styles, so that we can have life and life more abundantly. There is no room for big ego machoism and/or exercising male testosterone in this equation our health could be a matter of life and death.          

I just wanted to thank those family members and friends who prayed for a family member of mine during the time of him being hospitalized and I still remain more than grateful for the outpouring of love. I am a very reflective type person, so I am constantly reflecting on every event that I am involved in, every person that I meet, every conversation that I have, every church sermon I hear, every movie I see, every text or phone call I receive and I keep a mental journal, because I am not that good in writing things down relative to recording my daily thoughts in a daily diary. My mother for years who lives in Northern New Jersey would call me every day and she would recite these long extended prayers and she would always ended with in the name of Jesus!!!!!!!!!. And trust me my momma can pray.

The medical team would come by each morning to make their daily rounds and they would say my family member, how are you doing today? and he would answer, Doc. I am prayed up. But during these hospital visitation I would make my rounds every day (LOL) and check on the other patients. There were a lot of sick people who were hospitalized and were suffering from heart disease, kidney disease, suffering from various types of cancers, lung disease, obesity, etc. Thus, I knew that we as black people were being plagued by these debilitating and killer diseases more than any other race. We meaning black people, we do not like to talk about the importance of good health and nutrition, but what we eat and consume is taking us to an early grave. Our mortality rate have negatively increased within last 30 years, which has negatively impacted our overall life expectancy rate.

This translate to mean that my generation will not out live our parents and another very sad statistics is that our children will not out live us. Brother and sisters, we are in trouble and in a time of crisis. Many traditional black communities are located in Food Deserts, which means that there are very few good wholesome food markets where our people can purchase wholesome affordable foods that are non-Genetically Modified Organism (GMO), thus food that has not been genetically altered and chemically produced and treated with dangerous-poisonous pesticides. These type produced foods are highly toxic, but they make their way into the market place (often shipped to the poorest communities that fits a certain demographic). I am here to tell you and inform my community, that what we eat have long term and short term implications on our health. You should eat nothing but organic fruits and vegetables, and ask whether or not these produce are GMO grown, if so run the other way. Do not eat any fish that has been tagged farm raise this fish is very dangerous for your health, because it is toxic. Look to purchase salmon that is labled wild Alaskan caught and wild caught sardienes ( certain fish is high in Omega 3 oils and have been known to prevent certain cancers).  

Black women are dying at an alarming rate from breast cancer and black man are dying equally at an alarming rate of heart disease and prostrate cancer. We have become an obese society overweight, not only are we consuming to much food, but the wrong types foods. Many of us are still eating pork, beef, chicken in which our poultry and cattle have been injected with artificial hormones and poisonous enzymes to fatten them up for the markets. We have been eating posinious animal flesh and fail to see the connection to heart disesase, diabetes, and cancers (all of this is interrelated); you cannot depend on the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and/or United States Department of Agriculature (USDA) to oversee and police the pharmaceutical and  food industry thus this is ultimately about big money and capitalist interest and oftentimes the USDA is in cohorts with the big conglomerate food producers and growers. Your health in the United States plays out as a distance second to those who seek profit over insuring that the American people are getting high quality food.

I am tired of attending funerals of our people dying prematurely from these dreaded diseases, that have been created in the laboratory of the wickedly wise. Many of us have adopted this insane axiom that my whole family was raised off pork and my grandmother lived to be 100 years old eating pork but there are people in the Bible that lived to be 900 years old (so in comparison to the biblical truths your grandmamma lived a relatively short life). We are dying extremely to young. What are we eating fatty foods (that is high in calories and often low in nutritional value); here is a quick tip if you buy rice, sugar, flour, etc. if it is white in coloring it has been bleached and is automatically bad for you to eat; purchase organic brown staples and stay completely away from white anything--Organic Basmati whole grain rice, which is much better for you to eat.

I know some of us are shy about going to these Asian markets (please checking out the Indian, Japanese, Korean, Chinese grocers and Latinos markets--trust me start shopping with them, in particular go into their natural herbs and herbal product section (you will find an abundance of herbs medicinal spices--also African and Caribbean stores have good herbal sections as well) . They have food and medicinal herbs and products that have been used for healing for thousands of years--Royal Jelly and Tea Tree Oil, Golden Seal (what I call food medicines). When you see these international markets go in there and shop (some of them are better than health food stores and the pricing is much fairer than Whole Foods or Trader Joes).

The best remedy for common cold is ECHINACEA, Cinnamon root, Ginger, and organic lemon. If need something to keep you regulated there is a herbal remedy called CASCARA SAGRADA (take at night and position yourself by the bathroom in the morning) taking ex-lax and other drugs for constipation says that you are fully of sh... and you are poisoning your body. You should have at least three bowel movements per day these synthetic chemical drugs are negatively affecting our digestive tract and is the root cause of digestive system cancers (pancreatic cancers, colon cancer and rectum cancer). Now, what I really recommend in these cases are to eat more organic and non-GMO fruits and vegetables and get yourselves on a high fiber diet (unbleached whole wheat, beans, grains, raisins, dates, certain nuts and eat plenty of organic leafy vegetables that well create the roughage you need to properly help you digest your food and create better bowel movements (drink plenty of water).

I am your brother and I pleading with you to stop cooking and eating fried food today that grease only helps clog up our arteries and contributes to heart disease (you should use extra virgin olive oil because Hydrogenated oil contains trans fats and this is artery blocker and a killer). Your health is the most important thing in your life, it does not care about how much money you have without good health you have nothing. The Chinese taught us about ginger root (eleuthero ginger) every household should keep plenty of ginger (the healing principles are invaluable).

The United States has corrupted the balance of nature and disrupted the ecological system so much that the universe is starting to turn on man; the bees are becoming extinct and our crops are not being pollinated as they once were, because the use of pesticides have killed off the honey bees and now they have to import bees from other parts of the world and even have bee farms. Help me lord we are in trouble. The best honey is ORGANIC WILD COLLECTED RAW HONEY and another good sweetner is EGAGVE. 

Brothers and Sisters find you a good Homeopathic practitioner who practice alternative medicine. The next thing is to invest in a good juicer and/or blender that you can start taking organic carrots, organic celery, organic apples and wheat grass in blend wholesome drinks and stop sugar drinks today and you will see immediately weight lost because often diseses all feed off sugar in your system. When my daughter was an infant, she would be whining and would be having a difficult time going to sleep there is a natural soothing tea called catnip tea (very natural and it works like a sedative). You should never give your babies formula or cow milk--the best milk for your babies is the breast milk that God has giving to you as mothers (no substitutes nursing your babies) the nipple suckling even helps heal the woman's womb after child's birth, if you eat a vegan and/or vegetarian diet your babies will never be sick with colds, colliclky, and high fevers. Stop feeding and giving your babies this poisonous formula and we do not know whats in those manufactured cans. It is a damn shame that in some counties and socities in Europe the woman is giving two years of maternity leave in order to tend to her needs and baby needs--this is a very humane gesture and in the United States our women get six to eight weeks this is not enough time for the woman to bond with her baby.

Aloe Vera plant it has many medicinal usages (you can drink certain type Alea Vera or used it as a healing cream and moisturizer a lot of good medical principles in this plant), Shea Butter if you have rashes and skin problems such as eczema it works miracles. But often it you are experiencing skin and rash disorders you probably have way to much acidic food intake and you definitely are not consuming enough distilled water (the best water is pure well water from the country or from some uncontaminated water mountainous stream). Our bodies is over 75 percent water; you must drink plenty of water.   

Black children having Attention Defecit Disorder (ADD), Down Syndrome, Autism, etc. (these conditions are correlated to the food our children are eating, which often is fast food and cookware where we are preparing the food in aluminum cookware--throw them pots out today (the aluminum gets into your food and it is poisonous). What our children eat not only affects behavior but it impacts I.Q. and intelligence. I know this is going to take some aback, but you should never allow your children to be inoculated and vaccinated; some may say this is ridicules,  if you think so just Google search the Tuskegee Experiment and start reading about the Tuskegee Expeiment in which the United States Government was behind thousands of  black men be giving Syphillis and allowed to go back to the black community to contaminate their woman with venereal disease  (STD). I called it genocide. Just recently from the highest levels of government in the State of Michigan that systematically allowed private and municipal entities to supply the people of Flint, Michigan with poisonous lead based water; our people were allowed to consume deadly carcinogen and contaminated drinking water so don't tell me what the government will not do.

Every kitchen should have some of the basic herbs such as rosemary, sage, garlic, cayenee pepper, organic onions and of the most powerful herbs that should be used in the kitchen is Turmeric (it has a lot of medicinal principles) and very next thing you should do is throw all your salt in the trash, I do not care if its Sea Salt or what ever type salt all salt is extremely bad for your health. But those that got to have that salt taste try Braggs (liquid Aminos All Purpose Seasoning). I am sorry to inform you brothers and sisters all meat products are dangerous (and in this day and time it is ill-advised to continue eating flesh and continue expecting good results in which this is contributing to our  community dying of preventable illiness and diseases, because we have contracted heart disease, diabetes and cancer (most of these aliments can be preventable and controlled by proper diet and nutrion); moreover, we can end some of this today by just changing how we eat (also we should fast three days out of each month).

They load our communities up with fastfood restaurants (it only means fast death), Mc Donald's, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Cookout, Churches Chicken,Wendys, Dominos, Papa Johns, Zaxby's, Chick-fil-A, and you wonder why your children are getting their menstrual periods at seven and eight years old and are growing breast at seven, it is because of the hormone and enzyme injected food that you are giving them (we are sentencing our children to an early death) and many of them are obese. Mommas and daddys it is time to get back into the kitchen and start cooking and preparing your own foods. Thus, get your mouths out of the enemies kitchens and by not cooking anymore we are sentencing our family to a death sentence, we can beat cancer diabetes, kidney disease, heart disease, hypertension, etc., and any other chronic diseases.

My Analysis on the United States and Cuba ’s New Diplomatic Relations

My Analysis on the United States and Cuba ’s New Diplomatic Relations and Foreign Policy Initiatives: What Will the Cuban Youth Have to Say About this New Course?

By Fahim A. Knight-El

I have always had a political and culture infatuation with the island nation of Cuba . I became exposed to a book some years ago titled, "Assata: An Autobiography", written by an African American woman named Assata Shakur (aka JoAnne Chesimard) and I have had this book in my library for number of years and I put it on my reading list to re-read based on new current international political events that have taking place between the United States and Cuba. Assata Shakur was a former Black Liberation Army member who was convicted of killing a white New Jersey State Police officer on the New Jersey Turnpike in the early 1970s and was sentenced in a federal court to serve a life of incarceration and has now lived in exile for over 40 years.

She escaped from a woman’s federal prison in Morganton, West Virginia . It was her book titled, "Assata: An Autobiography", that inspired me to wanting to know more about the political, economic and social landscape of Cuba and its people. Shakur was considered to be a militant revolutionary activist who was deeply engaged in the Black Liberation movement and struggle in the late 1960s and 1970s (that perhaps was inspired by the Black Power movement led by Black Panthers organizers Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seales and Stokely Carmichael who radicalized the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee). Upon her escape from U.S. federal custody, she was granted political asylum from President Fidel Castro and has lived in exile in Cuba for close to forty years.

Thus, as Cuba opens up, I would like to be engaged in a fact find mission and to do a documentary of sort, in particular focusing on the Cuban youth and talking with the young people of Cuba and getting their viewpoint on what it’s like living under a Socialist government, but exploring these set of questions strictly from the minds of the Cuban youth. And getting their perspectives relative to assessing and evaluating the Socialist ideology from a political, economic and social vanish point, as well as, getting their views on the United States inspired Hip-Hop culture. Furthermore, exploring what’s been the culture impact Hip-Hop has had on the Cuban youth relative to analyzing both the social and political influences the genre have implored around the world. I would also like to engage the Cuban youth on their perception of the recent so-called normalized and diplomatic relations with the United States (pros and con analysis). And how they felt about the prior economic sanctions and embargoes that had been imposed against Cuba for over fifty years, now that they are being uplifted and do they feel that these new U.S-Cuba foreign policy initiatives will benefit the Cuban people.

I would also like to know, from the Cuban youth about their views and perspectives on their past leader and Commandeer Fidel Castro (the standard bearer of the revolution) who was viewed by some of the outside world as a controversial leader ever since he took office in 1959, and just how much they know about the Cuban Revolution (based on the demographics that I would like to speak to none of them would have been born when Castro overthrew the former Cuban leader Fulgencio Batista). And what are their perspectives on American style Democracy and would they like visiting the United States in order to get a firsthand view of the American people and the American culture.

I would like to use my activism and social agitation knowledge and energy to encourage the Cuban Government and the United States Government, as well as the United States educational institutions of higher learning to consider the educational benefits of pursing a student exchange initiatives with Cuba . I would begin by lobbing American universities and colleges board of governors and/or the board of regents to do everything in their powers to work towards establishing an educational pilot program that is based on a student exchange initiatives between the two nations, which would allow both nations (Cuban and American) university level students to get the international experience of studying abroad. Also, I would use my activism experience to galvanize alliances with progressive groups and organizations in order to work in corroboration and perhaps the idea would eventually expand to all levels of our society.

We no longer can allow isolationism, as it has done over the last 50 years to deny us as Americans and Cubans who are in such close geographic proximity of having friendly and mutual relations with this Latin American nation, being just 90 miles away from Florida and not to have had normalized relations for over five decades was politically ludicrous. In addition, my daughter is a African dancer and my son is an African drummer and they too would also like use her involvement in the arts and studying African dance under the world renowned African dance chirographer Chuck Davis (He has been the face of African dance in Durham for over 40 years and is considered a master African dance instructor and professor Emeritus) and create cultural exchanges and talking points with such a culturally rich nation. They are interested in breakdown any visible political or invisible culture barriers by using the arts to neutralize political impediments and differences by evoking culture initiatives and would like to choreograph dances that speak to the universality of the arts.

It has become a sense of urgency for me, personally, because I would like to be engaged in my study and research before the capitalist and the big corporate conglomerates begin their possible remake of this island nation, which appeared to have stood still politically, economically, and socially for over fifty year (and in doing so, it has preserved the integrity of the people and culture). I know with the new political relations that now exist between Havana and the United States government, it’s going to inspire corporate interest and perhaps provide increasing international business interest in Cuba. This island nation that has somewhat lingered in obscurity for over a half of century, is now receiving a lot of attention from the United States and the western world; this is mainly because of the new diplomacy agreements that President Barack Obama and President Raul Castro have signed on to. I personally think it is a mistake for Cuba to go down this course with the United States Government and we can only hope and pray that this new diplomacy course does not turn out to be reactionary and lead to the betrayal of the revolutionary principles, which has come define this Island nation for over 55 years.

But they are not obligated to use the same strategies and tactics of previous comrades, but they do have an obligation and duty to review the past struggles; either to confirm those principles and tenets as being valid or determine them as being flawed. Only history will provide us with the proof that an organization or movement has met the standards of being classified as progressive and worked in the interests of the people’s revolution. And yet simultaneously, it also, allows us the ability to analyze them to determine if they were reactionary and contradictory and will have a counter-revolutionary affect on the present day struggle and must be dismissed. Perhaps some would argue that the time has come for the United States and Cuba to redefine history and in lieu of progressive foreign and international policy to abandon this policy that was rooted in old era of the Cold War in particular the international politics that were aligned to the former Soviet Union (or Warsaw Nations) and those nations who tied to the United States and the West via NATO.

This new international diplomatic legislation and foreign policy course between the United States and Cuba, has given proof positive and confidence in how important these present foreign policy initiatives were so long over due—this is evident in the renewed interest in Cuban tourism by the American people and people from around the world, is trying to get a firsthand look at this once isolated Socialist country. However, I would also like to inspire the Cuban youth to view their nation (preserved culture as their national treasure) and do everything in their power to protect it. But I know the digital and information age have created technological advantages and as this Socialist nation continues to evolve, it is just a matter of time that the tech giants will be in Cuba—and as they embrace the global society this will create a new Cuba. The coming of social media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Vine, etc., and Internet functions without borders and there is no doubt the informational superhighway will create a high level of excitement amongst the young Cuban population (for better or worse).

Yet, the preserved architecture heritage of Cuba should not be negated or overlooked and in my opinion, must remain a priority, because it is indeed a national treasure (that has international cultural and artistic implications) and they must be willing to continue to preserve the architecture beauty and the historical value it has relative to past structural designs and the colonial building styles in which some of the edifices go back to 16th and 17th century when the Spanish occupiers had colonized Cuba.

I would guess that as Cuba continues to open up; those builders and developers that specializes in creating exquisite resorts and five star hotels plans, perhaps are already on the drawing board along with other ideas to attract and enhance tourism, as well as seeking to economically exploit the projected business interest that a new Cuba will bring—the beach front properties and shorelines with sprawling hotels, restaurants and condos will be the new architecture designs and models. Surely, this type of business interest will increase revenue into Cuba ’s weak and struggling economy, but it will come with a hefty price whereas venture capitalist will put making money over Cuba ’s historical preservation and pristine value. I pray to God that I am able to experience Cuba as it is today and before the new development take place and conduct my study prior to the island becoming completely influenced by U.S. and Western culture. I do not want a tainted view of Cuba , but my interest is the old Cuba that still exists today as I write this blog.

Also, I have read Eric Williams book titled, "Capitalism and Slavery", and he delved into the economic impact the Transatlantic slave trade had on Cuba, in particular and Caribbean nations in general, I have read where Cuba in 1925 was ninety (90) percent black and African in which I am equally intrigued with the Afro-Cuban experience and the culture linkages between indigenous African culture and Africans who were displaced throughout the Diaspora. I still think that historians, archaeologists, anthropologists, paleontologist, sociologist and social scientist in general, still have a lot to learn about the Cuban society and its people. Also I would like to hear the Cuban youth views on race and racism, in particular knowing that the Cuban people have a large spectrum of colors and hues that makes up the nation of Cuba . There is no doubt, that the past miscegenation practices and/or rape of African women and indigenous women of that region by the Spaniards (ethnic and racial foot prints), which have left a light skinned mulatto Cuban and there are those Cubans who are very dark skinned and it is evident that they are closely akin to the former African slaves.

I would like to conduct an empirical investigational study on race and race relations in Cuba in order to determine does racism exist and does it have the same affect as American style racism. I believe the Cuban youth will speak with honesty and candor about issues of race. Now, going briefly back to the exiled and self proclaimed prisoner of war and revolutionist Assata Shakur; I would like to remain optimistic, that if the U.S and Cuba signs an extradition treaty, it would not include the Cubans turning over Assata Shakur and putting her in the grasp of the long arms of Homeland Security and the U.S. Patriot Act. I am of opinion, that her international legal status must have the proper international clarity as these two nations moves forward in normalizing relations.

The potential of removing Shakur’s protected exile status in which the Cuban Government has provided her with for over four decades would be unthinkable. Moreover, anything other than this position could jeopardize and compromise her international protection from the long arm of the United States Government. This would be a political travesty for the former U.S. prisoner of war by potentially allowing the U.S. government to take international legal custody of Shakur and further allowing her to becoming a political casualty of the new U.S. and Cuba foreign policy. This would be an act of political betrayal and would not represent the long term commitment and relations the nation of Cuba and Castro have had with revolutionaries and political prisoners from around the world. Thus, forty years later, she still would not get a fair trial under the United States jurisprudence system. Lastly, African Americans and all people of goodwill should be lobbying the United States Government and petitioning President Barack Obama to issue Assata Shakur a presidential pardon and commute her sentence.

Moorish American Quest for independents and a Nationality: The Pending Question to Freedom

By Fahim A. Knight-El

Let me first go on public record and state that I am not a Grand Sheik nor am I an authority on Moorish Science jurisprudence and/or historical authority on the doctrines, philosophy, theology, law, etc., pertaining to the various Moorish ideological movements and temples (I hold no position as a Moorish Science representative; I am writing this article strictly as a layperson). But I started looking at the Moorish sovereignty and nationality argument a little closer when Dr. Malachi Z. York-El, the enigmatic leader of the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors who was indicted and convicted within U.S. Federal Courts in 2004, and proclaimed his racial and ethnic linage (and/or nationality) of being Moor, indigenous American and having ancestral roots to the Aboriginals known as the Native Americans (York-El even had lawful international documentation (passport and dual citizenship) that he was a Liberian (West African) diplomat and a Liberian national in which the former Liberian Senator Francis Y.S. Garlawolu was there in the U.S. Court to validate Dr. York’s claim). There have been more qualified and authentic Muur defendants than York-El who had made similar legal arguments within the United States Courts over the years and many Muurs perhaps saw Dr. York’s plea as a mere opportunist who only used this legal strategy in an attempt to avoid prosecution. But Dr. York’s case led me to assess and evaluate, as well as, investigate the question of nationality relative to those known in the United States of America as so-called ‘African Americans’ who now number over 50 million descendents of Muurs ancestry. 

York challenged and put forth an unsuccessful legal argument that as a foreign diplomat he was immune to being held in U.S. custody and prosecuted under the U. S. jurisprudence system and should have been turned over to the Liberian Consulate and Embassy in Washington DC. as any other foreign diplomat who were arrested under U.S. Jurisdictional law (Dr. York was right in many ways); Dr. Malachi York-El during his hearing in U.S. Federal Court in 2004 stated: “"Your Honor, with all due respects to your government, your nation, and your court, we the indigenous people of this land have our own rights, accepted sovereign, our own governments. We are a sovereign people, Yamassee, Native American Creeks, Seminole, Washitaw Mound Builders. And all I'm asking is that the Court recognize that I am an indigenous person. Your court does not have jurisdiction over me. I should be transferred to the Moors Cherokee Council Court in which I will get a trial by juries of my peers. I cannot get a fair trial, Your Honor, if I'm being tried by the settlers or the confederates. I have to be tried by Native Americans as a Native American. That's my inalienable rights, and it's on record.”

York-El claimed to have been a Moorish diplomatic (of Muur nationality and citizenry, and not an American citizen) as I stated above during his unsuccessful Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) trial that involved many counts of sexual molestation allegations. He and his legal team were of the opinion that he should have been afforded and granted diplomatic immunity from these charges—freed and allowed to return to Africa or perhaps turned over to a Native American tribal council (York’s arrest was a violation of his Habeas corpus rights) but the U.S. courts rejected Dr. York's legal defense because I believe that his defense team led by Attorney Malik Zulu Shabazz did not understand the depth of York's nationality claim, it was even bigger than York himself it involved a 400 year redress of high crimes against humanity and they were not going let the cat out the bag because of the collective legal implications it would have on reshaping the Muurs (40-50 so-called American Negroes of the United States of America) quest for not only a nationality, which would have included reparations and a mandate to turn over historical sovereign lands belonging to those Muurs who arrived to the Americas long before Christopher Columbus. The Moors question the legitimacy of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution and whether not the so-called Negroes were ever given the lawful opportunity to question and make the decision to be recognized as a so-called American; their U.S. citizenship status was given to them by their former slave masters. Let me also be clear this article is not about Dr. Malachi York-El, I am only using his case as a prologue to discuss Muurs nationality, sovereignty, reparation and independence. 

President Abraham Lincoln in the Lincoln-Douglas debate on September 18, 1858 stated:   "I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races, [applause]—that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.”

However, I think Dr. York did not totally understand the gravity of the Uniform Commercial Code; the United States by law is a corporation and either in 1913 or 1933 is when the United Stated Government and/or the governmental corporation abandoned the gold standard currency system, thus, all printed U.S. currency, which use to be backed by gold and silver no longer existed, but the U.S. monetary system for over 80 years had been propped up by the Straw man deception  (the legal battles of thereunto would even alter how sovereignty and writs and petition would be received in United States Courts (relative to martial law versus civil law) and this also would impact the interpretative question of nationality from a constitutional perspective.  If one legal case of Moorish nationality is won in United Nations international court of law, it will forever change and alter our collective paradigm and position in the world and justify the so-called American Negro quest for reparations and insure a present and future identifiable nationality parlayed by the right to self-determination (affirmation and proclamation of freedom beyond the 13th Amendment) —the quest would be a testament tied to war crimes committed by the United States, Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Germany, United Kingdom, etc., who were active participants in the Transatlantic Slave Trade and the Middle Passage who knowingly and willingly committed acts of genocide that was inflicted on a people for over 310 years, which involved the buying and selling and enslavement over 100 million Africans, a gross and horrific violation of the African descendents human rights.

I do not mean going to civil court and petitioning as an individual to wear a Moorish identity; in particular “Bey” or “El” or any surname that separates and denotes historical, genetic and cultural links beyond our Negro status in America, this would only be considered a miscued victory (these are only small personal legal victories which will impact adherents of the Moorish Science doctrine but will not determine U.S. and international policy relative to our people of the Diasporas). The legal battle for a nationality will be the most challenging because the slave masters and the captives created long term systemic practices to disconnect blacks from their Moorish history and tradition—denied the right to speak their native tongues, forced to accept European names, divided and scattered from their original descendent lands, given the slave master’s religion of Christianity and made us into Negroes. Now, the so-called American Negro for 400 years still remain unsettled, divested and stripped of their birth rights (this dehumanization plan had many intents free labor, and genocide was the ultimate objective).

This international legal battle  will set a lawful precedent (to ensue a historical declaration as original claimants of indigenous Moorish ancestry which to force the United States Government (and Allies) dating back to the 1440s and returning all seize assets, property rights, land (held by the Bank of England and the U.S. Federal Reserve) and would even grant Muurs, African Americans, Negroes, Blacks, Ethiopians, Colored, Asiatics, etc., entitlement to the gold and silver housed in vaults in Fort Knox, Kentucky, which was accumulated from 310 years of slave labor and stolen resources from the inhabitants of the Muurs biological kin the so-called Native Americans. However, I am not optimistic that this would ever occur, because it would take a comparable fighting machine equal and/or superior to the U.S. military and without a military to enforce a U.S. Supreme Court or a United Nations decision to ensure compliance to repatriate the original indigenous Moors (this argument would be met on deaf ears). The quest for freedom, justice and equality as a people who have been denied a divine and lawful right to a nationality still remains lingering.

Nevertheless, the Moorish argument will continue to be an uphill political, economic and social battle within the legal schools thought but it is gaining traction. We all have become collateral and our birth certificates were used as asset leverages in which private bankers working in conjunction with the United States Government has redeemed over $650.000 dollars per citizen (some scholars have argued that this amount has ballooned to over 7 million dollars) this redeemable money is tied to your sovereignty; thus U.S. Currency now function as Fiat currency (the money has no real value) in which the ‘money’ or monetary exchange has been reduced to a Federal Reserve note that cannot be redeemed for gold or silver. The ‘Banksters’ turned its citizens into instrument of commodity and created a Strawman economy. Brother Knight-El, what does this have to do with sovereignty and nationality? Prophet Noble Drew Ali understood before his death in 1929 that the so-called American Negroes and Asiatics by law (Blacks Law dictionary defines the difference between what is law and what is legal) that our sovereignty would be tied to nationality and he strategically and legally created a religious domicile under the heading of the Moorish Science Temple of America Incorporated; this is some heavy information and some of it is even over my head as a layperson historian. The strawman was/is a fictional person(s) who has no true identity (yet U.S. citizens birth certificates are traded like stocks and bonds and those Invisible Rulers on Wall Street have systematically withheld your right and our right as a people to declare our nationality as Muurs descendants).

We have sought and declared our rights to a nationality in order sit amongst other nations of the earth as members of the United Nations (we have never sat in the U.N. as an independent and sovereign nation of indigenous people). The entire straw man concept and how we as U.S. citizens are traded as stocks and commodity is essentially based on us never declaring the legal and monetary value of our birth certificates and how the United States serve as a Corporation (pursuant to serving as the legal beneficiary) and many of us have involuntarily signed on and the 14th amendment of the United States Constitution is the lock and key. So unless we decipher the United States Constitution and prove that the Federal Reserve System functions outside of U.S. Law and as a private central bank holds the key to making us financially whole because what they established on Jekyll Island off the coast of Georgia in 1913 was one of the greatest silent Coup d'├ętat and crimes ever committed against the citizens of the United States of America.  The Moors of the Americas claim to have signed legislation that gives them the rights to be recognized as a separate nationality from ex-slaves so-called American Negroes (the so-called American Negro sold his birthrights under the 13th Amendment, 14TH Amendment, and 15TH Amendment to the U.S. Constitution). 

We must revisited the legal treaties and legal agreements that were signed between the top level United States Government officials and Moors; Ali wrote about these national and international pacts between the indigenous people who were kidnapped and brought to the shores of the Americas and the eventual diplomacy between the white man and the Blackmoors. Although, our revolutionary scholars have always argued that the original people were in the Americas long before the European expedition voyages. However, even in 2016, we as a scattered, homeless and vagabond people still do not have a collective and agreed nationality in which is recognized by the United Nations (perhaps this is the biggest piece to the Moorish argument and in my opinion will be an uphill battle).

I actually mentioned this point in a previous article that I had written on April 6, 2014 on the Muurs titled, “Moorish American Sovereignty: Myth or Reality.”  Some years ago Minister Silis Muhammad (leader of the Lost-Found Nation of Islam in the West headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia) had petition the United Nations Human Rights Commission on behalf of 40-50 million Diasporian Africans who he deemed were victims of Chattel Slavery relative to receiving some of the worst human brutality and dehumanization treatment comparable to none on the earth when you look at the effects this had on the original people for 310 years.

Minister Muhammad charged the European nations and the United States with participating in genocide, ethno-genocide and crimes against humanity. He and his team of lawyers filed their legal grievances with the U.N. Human Rights Commission only to be denied because the so-called Negroes of America had no agreed nationality or identity that was accepted by the United Nations and therefore there petition was denied. Minister Muhammad re-filed his petition declaring black Americans under a new nationality called "Afro Descendants" in order to move this legal maneuver forward.

Prophet Noble Drew Ali issued the Moorish Science Temple of America, Inc. 'Nationality Cards', which stated, "This is your nationality and identification card for the Moorish Science Temple of America, and birthrights for the Moorish Americans, etc. We honor all of the Divine Prophets: Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha, and Confucius. May the blessings of the God of our father Allah, be upon you that carry this card. I do hereby declare that you are a Moslem under the Divine Laws of the Holy Koran of Mecca. Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom and Justice."

I was turned on to  Brother Prince Uriel Bey's works (a Moorish Science scholar and philosopher and peace be unto him and may Allah look favorably upon him) by a brother named Fennell Bey and since May 6, 2016, we had established a line of communication. He started sending me Youtube clips and provocative articles, which was definitely outside the box type information. I owe a debt of gratitude to brother Fennell Bey for finding me worthy to share wisdom that was rooted in the deep esoteric and Mysticism of the Moorish Science doctrine and philosophical teachings. I also owe him an apology because I got so busy that I could not answer all his emails, but I am grateful for this brother and his patience he instructed me to read all Prince Uriel Bey’s (up until that point I had never heard of Brother Prince Uriel Bey or his works) work titled, The Consecrated Talisman 'Salmagundi' - The Pi Exponent, Oeconomicus, Artificium Et Commercium and Atmaurium Matria Mea (My Country Atmaurium) I consider myself to be a novice and to weigh in on Brother Bey’s scholarship, it might be prematurely for me to give a complete analysis.

Even as I write this article I probably would have to better familiarize myself with his extensive views on ancient history, theological events and geography, racial and ethnic indexing, anthropology, archeology, and his deeper understanding of Moorish and United States jurisprudence—comparative and legal historical contracts that have been written signed and overstanding his views on Sovereignty. Moreover, since he was hedging on practical and esoteric views about the interconnectedness of the Moabites and linking geopolitical ties between  lands, languages, racial, etc., indexing between those inhabitants of Iberian Peninsula, which I am assuming their ethno/racial lines between the original inhabitants of Iberia and those original people who occupied the Americas (were in his contentions are of kinship people), perhaps over 16,000 years before the Caucasians arrived these ancient black people were in North America and South America.

From the Book “The Consecrated Talisman ‘Salmagundi’ The Pi Exponent, page 208 stated: “Caput Una…Ancient Moorish – American Land Documents One of the earliest Moorish (Canaanite – Poenicium) documents pertaining to the right, possession and inhabitation of land by blood in the Americas; describing the Annexation of the American Continent to the Iberian Peninsula, both, being of the Present Moorish and Ancient Carthaginian Empire, is the Bourne Stone, in Komassakumkanit Cape Code Bay New England Massachusetts, which exhibits and identifies the Moorish Seal of Hanno-Bey Circa 500 B.C., written or inscribed in North Semitic Iberian-Punic Script, which is a later form of the Moabite Characters, as the Moorish (Moabite and Canaanite) are known to have carried their Semitic Tongue to Spain.  Evidence of these Ancient Moorish Documents can be found in the Archives of the Bourne Historical Society, 2) the ‘Book of Ballymote’ – an archaic and rare manuscript housed in the libraries of the Bishops of the Roman Catholic Church; containing priceless information on the Ancient Ogam writings”.

 He also extended the Moorish and Moabite ethnic and historical presences to be geographically very expansive (now, some of this information does have scholarly and historical precedent and I am pointing this fact out more as references than me attempting to diminish this brother's credibility as a scholars and what he has offered in his works). I think his overall scholarship rest on many conscious and revolutionary scholars that had gone before him (and he drew upon many of them and yet his information did not just parrot the black scholars who addressed these similar histories, which makes his work intellectually phenomenon and possess a sense of originality). For example, Drusillia Dunjee Houston book titled, "Wonderful Ethiopians of the Ancient Cushite Empire", and I see Brother Uriel Bey expanding on Chancellor Williams' book titled, "Destruction of Black Civilization: Great Issues of Race from 4500 B.C." and also the works of J.A. Rogers three volume set titled, "Sex and Race" ; I see Cheikh Anta Diop works titled, "African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Reality" and "Civilization and Barbarism", Sterling Means work titled, "Ethiopia and the Missing Link in African History" and Ivansetima works "Africa's Presences in Early Asia" and "They Came before Columbus". Also, I can see the works of Rudolph Windsor titled, "From Babylon to Timbuktu: A History of the Ancient Black Races Including the Black Hebrews" and "The Valley of the Dry Bones: The Conditions That Face Black People in America Today"; Michael Bradley's "The Iceman Inheritance," as well as the works of Gerald Massey book titled, "Ancient Egypt the Light of the World" and John G. Jackson's work "Introduction to African Civilization".

I think his evidence represent a very good synthesizing of theological and political conclusions of modern and ancient sources, which has led him to various hypotheses that concluded with Moorish descendants of the ancient Moabites and/or Canaanites having lawful claims that he ties and preference directly to the teachings of Prophet Noble Drew Ali's "Circle 7 Holy Koran", which gives lawful and legal credence's to our overall question of nationality and sovereignty claims that the Prophet himself wrote about. Both Bey (the student) and the Ali the Master Teacher and Prophet both overstood that our ethnic and racial claims were directly tied to a people described in the Bible as the Moabites who linage can be traced to the so-called American Negro in America (the greatest story never told).

From page 26 we find written in “The Consecrated Talisman ‘Salmagundi’The Pi Exponent  …… “regarding the Possession and Annexation of the Americas to the Iberian Peninsula, Carthage (Tunis), Morocco, Numidia, Utica, etc., being those same possessions of North-east, and South-west Africa, including North, Central and South America, Mexico and the Atlantis Islands; serving as lawful evidence so written in the pages of the Circle 7 Holy Koran, for Moorish – Americans, etc., and further evidenced by Proclamation and Sovereign Trust for Moorish – Americans, etc., so written in the pages of the 7 part, Consecrated ‘Talisman’ of ‘The Moorish – American Society of Comprehensive Science’. Recorded as a Legal Deed and Trust Document in the Library of Congress – under Certified Registration No. TXU-1-123-633, and Control (Catalogue) Number 71-330-6977 (U), The Department of Homeland Security – U.S. Customs and Border Protection - Recordation No. COP 04-00062; Control No. 476030 LMW, and Catalogued in The U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Administration – (Department of State Library – Call # BP232.U73 2004) : and is duly recognized by the said Federal corporate United States government.

There is no doubt that Brother Prince Uriel Bey is standing on the foundation of the Prophet's teachings, but like any good Adept or Neophyte he allowed his knowledge and wisdom to evolve and build sound intellectual arguments that documents via historical and theological evidence to prove the Moabite/Muur rights and humanity—he dared to point us to study his views and contentions in order to go after assets and lands (nationally and internationally) and governmental signed treaties involving territories that belongs to the original people of the earth. Now, perhaps many Muurs/Moors do not have the ability to breakdown all this comprehensive ethno/theological and legal jurisprudence language that sways between a pure theological arguments into ancient kingdoms that crosses various continents and concludes with political law that is rooted in more esoteric schools of thought.

This might be viewed by some as being more of an unorthodoxy approach to Ali's primary argument of land and nationality (and desire to have no part  in Prince Uriel Bey's Moorish Science derivation and play it safe). Thus, yet, I think it would be difficult for the average layperson Muur to understand Brother Prince Uriel Bey views, although, his philosophical and theoretical analysis makes the Muurs case on much higher and deeper levels. But may this is the cause that has hindered him from gaining attention and much traction in MSTA circles, is because of the level of the study this would involve; and as much as this information is empirical it is literary challenging and to a lesser extent is outside of the traditional Moorish dogma. The question is do many of the Sheiks and Moorish leaders have a willingness to think outside the box (I do know that in every organization there is always a 5%, 10% and 85%). I am not a Moorish scholars or an authority on Moorish Doctrine. I think this brother's work is worth further investigation in particular in the realm of Moorish Science theological jurisprudence. His works are truly HIGH SCIENCE.
