By Fahim A. Knight-El

Let me start this article off by sharing this principle: Whatever Path that we are on and, perhaps unknowing to the majority of humanity this march had already been preordained before we embarked upon our earthly trek and even started before our birth conception); and it's not accidental or incidental nor even coincidental of where we are in space and time. We are supposed to be on our journey, whatever that may be and wherever it has taken us up until that point in our lives and the beauty in it all, it does not necessarily means this is where the journey begins or ends. But in the essence, of space and time relative to the universal order of things various Paths are shown and given to us as principles of spiritual preparation. These lessons will eventually give us meaning to this thing called life and as we travel our personal journey, the road will eventually continuously reward us with enlightenment (in particular the Prepared Ones and those who are opened to receive). I am a living witness that it will always provide us with some answers along the way—experienced through trial and error. However, as I just stated wherever, we are in mind, body and spirit, it will always provide us with the acknowledgement of the Now. It is only our experiences good, bad and/or indifferent, which gives life meaning and purpose in particular, those experiences that we have already had, and those that we will eventually have in the future and beyond, that will move us along in our spiritual journey; and this is the only true reality and it was this that brought me some years ago to the crossroads with organized religion.

This reality, will at time cause us to debunk some things in order to clear a way for another necessary Path, but each step along the way will either validate the truths that we have previously found and embraced, or require us to rethink those positions. I think those of us who professed to be awake and conscious, see all forms of religion as being reactionary; however, this at times can deny us the opportunity and privilege of being the beneficiary to walking into a sanctuary where truth and enlightenment may be taking place. I think Western Christianity has this negative stigma and it becomes difficult to see beyond the church historically serving as the chief vessel of white supremacy, oppression and global tyranny. Yet, I do think it is shallow not to investigate and determine for ourselves, if there is some real philosophical, theological and spiritual validity being offered by whomever regardless of the title and label of the institution.

The social and psychological make up of the so-called African American (American black man and woman) and his present day behavior and dysfunctional conduct cannot be downplayed in relation to being tied directly to his 310 years of brutality and forced servitude in which they were victims of one of the most inhumane systems ever recorded in human history, which was Chattel Slavery (citing facts not crying victimization or seeking a pity party).

The Transatlantic Slave Trade and the Middle Passage in relations to the inhumanness carried out on the slave plantation cannot be overlooked (I have documentation and proof of scholars who have provided us with empirical studies validating that the slavery experience was horrid and traumatic—the psychological effect is on-going). Our forcible travel to the Americas, as slaves, which historically has tied our roots to all the major and minor slave ports of South America, North America and the Caribbean region of this western hemisphere. We have to be open to receiving the knowledge of self because we were systematically made blind, deaf and dumb by a wise perpetrator of evil and not knowing this, places all of us at a disadvantage. There are still many so-called African Americans evoking the slave master's God and often fail to understand that our belonging to Christianity was forced upon us on the slave plantation; surely many of our African ancestors were not Christians. I cannot accept his religion nor his God; I can only accept and receive the God of the Oppressed and he definitely would not be in the form of no blue-eyed white God falsely depicted as Jesus.

I disagreed with Elijah Muhammad's son, Imam Warth Deen Mohammed on many theological and philosophical issues who in 1975 started revamping the Nation of Islam after the death of its patriarch (note: Those who are followers of Minister Louis Farrakhan do not teach or believe that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad is dead) and in essence betraying his father’s teachings and mission. But Imam Mohammed started a campaign may be in the early 1980s called the Committee to Remove All Images of Divine (CRAID) and I have always felt that this was a good concept because the Eurocentric mind had for centuries perpetuated the inferior races being associated with dark skinned people and the so-called superior races being associated with white skinned people in which they portrayed themselves with the racial likeness of God in particular embodied in a Caucasian image of Jesus. 

Imam Mohammed’s CRAID concept was a challenge to how the Divine was depicted in western culture in which he believed these false images of the Divine have had a negative and devastating effect on human relations. Imam Mohammed went on a public crusade to remove all images of the Divine, but I do not think his efforts ever gained any serious steam (other than Imam Mohammed’s book titled, “An African American Genesis” and his CRAID movement there was not to much else that I agreed with the Imam on and I definitely did not accept his position on Sunni Islam). I also do not accept the white man's God or his religion of Christianity—it has always been the missionaries’ mission to rob the indigenous people of their minds and lay the theoretical framework for the imperialist and the colonialist to steal original people's lands and resources throughout the planet—this agenda is even being continued under the so-called African American President Barack Obama.

There is a historical and cultural collective conscious that bonds people of African descent and I advise all my readers to reference Dr. Joy DeGruy-Leary’s book titled, “Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America's Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing”. Our Black youths need to know: who, how, what, where, when and why they entered; moreover, and we cannot have this type discussion in mid-sentence and not give them the historical reason of why we are in this present day condition, as opposed to given them the abbreviated version and the watered down truth, why not give them the unadulterated truth with no chaser. The system of white supremacy cannot exist without blame and our present day political, economic and social status must be viewed in that context and the indictment of a criminal system that made us "Negroes" and vagabonds of the earth is justifiable. So I am challenging all of my readers to look deeper into black human personality and not just be surface thinkers and compassionate intellectuals.

Why are we in this present day predicament? And to understand this will give us an even greater understanding of the root causes of why present day black families have broken down, black men walking away from their families (wives and children), and our lack of love for one another, it now constitute a pervasiveness of violence seen among young black males between the ages 18-24. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has reported that homicide has become the number one killer of young black males in this particular age group—the lack of opportunities, high unemployment, drug and alcohol addictions, poor housing, underfunded school districts and often the selling of illicit drugs are seen as the only way out of the black ghettos of America. These conditions have become systemic and it plays into the question of genocide and we must question, who is really behind this state of emergency? The vicious cycles of poverty and lack of real opportunity has created a permanent black underclass, which also includes poor whites and Latinos within this equation in the United States of America. But race and class gives other oppressed and marginalized people the false perception that somehow their racial status allows them to view themselves and their oppression from the realm of white privilege and it is this that separates them from other oppressed people in the United States of America (this is perhaps the biggest trick that keeps people divided in the U.S.). 

So-called Black leadership has failed to render any tangible solutions to these crisis facing black people other than preaching our dependency on the federal government—they have failed to adhere to the handwriting on the wall, which is, our government is bankrupt and we may see the end to social programs in the United States within the next decade. The so-called shutdown of the U.S. Government and the debt ceiling needing to be raised in order to keep the U.S. economy from collapsing and having global implications are clear signs that something terribly wrong has gone on inside of our government, it more importantly points to the fact that someone has the power to induce these type symptoms in order to profit from human misery. Senator Rand Paul and his Tea Party cadre will never attack the real enemies of American freedoms because to do this would represent the demise of his and their careers as a politician (no liberty is going to take place until the power brokers are dealt with). 

Therefore, it is easy to hide behind fiscal conservatism and attack the poor and scapegoat America’s economic woes to the least of these (poor people has no power to fight back). Yet, those who control the smoking mirrors will continue to masquerade under the guise of the Hidden Hand and Congressman Paul will do everything in his power to shield them from being exposed. I am of the opinion, that God himself would directly has to intervene in the affairs of men and women in order to deal with these diabolic evil forces that are governing and leading humanity. But here is the reality, since 9/11 and 2008 economic depression or conveniently referred to as an economic meltdown, it forced some of us to wake up, but most people will continue to be only good 'sheepel' and voluntarily led to the slaughter. The entire money system has been set-up to benefit the international bankers; they intentionally sold us a false bill of goods. Minister Malcolm X said in the early 1960s that the American dream was more like an American nightmare. There is no real ownership in America this is an illusion and they systematically carryout this illusion by selling us money (when you buy by credit they are actually selling you money) in which money of itself has no value, but it is given as an accepted form of medium of exchange.

The Congress would rather see a total collapse of the U.S. Government and its brought to its knees before working to establish a long term budget that serve and meet the needs of the American people (this attitude is beyond political opposition, but its rooted in the deepest sentiments of American style racism and they have determined to take no orders or directives from a America’s so-called black president). The Fall of America is at hand and it is inevitable because the pendulum has swung in the wrong direction for America and its 6,000 year rulership is coming to an abrupt end. Black Leadership in 2013 has to be innovative and creative in order for us to make the transition from 20th century ideas because 9/11 and the year of 2001 marked the beginning and demise of this world's order and it has forced us to move towards finding our place in the 21st Century concept of globalism. And this will be the indicator to determining, if we meet the challenges of survival and/or do we fizzle away as an obsolete people who has out served their usefulness and purpose.

The leadership and the United States Government should be focusing on how do we move our nation more towards this competitive and fast moving global economy. We were thirty years ago once the number one creditor nation in the world and now have become the number one debtor nation of the world. Something has gone terribly wrong with the course and plight of the political, economic and social direction of the United States of America. How willing are the people to truly move beyond a dumbfound Tea Party era that has taking our nation on a collision course and in collusion with a conservative and reactionary U.S. Congress who are behind shaping and molding public policy? 

The recent events (government shutdown) threaten the economic stability of the entire U.S. Government. There already exist a wealth disparity in which 95% of the world's wealth is in the hands of 1% Elitist population and it's this basic inequality that keeps poor, middle class and working class people fighting for economic crumbs (there must be a redistribution of the world's wealth and resources with the masses of the people). They have literally created two classes of people the "haves and the Have nots' Our immediate focus should be on how do we move, perhaps one of the most industrialized and technological nation’s in the world from being number 35th in science and 29th in math forward in the 21st Century. We are far behind China, Korea, India, Japan, etc., in the sciences and this is why we are lagging in technological advancement.

Most of our so-called leaders are cloned puppets who are always looking to appear politically correct and are often bought and paid for by corporate entities—this is where their interest lie. The best example would be Reverend Al Sharpton typifies and exemplifies the term opportunistic (here is his latest venture a new book titled, “The Rejected Stone: Al Sharpton and the Path to American Leadership“); he is more concern about window dressing and what he and his organization National Action Network can get from corporate sponsorship, as opposed to championing real civil right causes to benefit the black poor and oppressed—these ‘Negroes are playing the money chase game and justice and freedom is a second distances to lining their personal pockets with corporate grants and other financial incentives. These type 'Negro' leaders are paid millions of dollars to keep the black masses under control and depended upon white America for food, clothing and shelter.

What would Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. think of today’s black leadership who fifty years ago in 1963, perhaps delivered one of the most symbolic and iconic speeches ever to be spoken in American history (the ‘ I Have a Dream’ speech). The Fifty Year Commemoration Celebration of the March on Washington held on or about August 28 2013, was not even a shadow of the sacrifices that was associated with the King led civil rights movement, it has become a movement of nostalgic dreamers and have lost King’s ideas about transformation and activism—since King’s assassination the civil rights movement is at a point what I call political stagnation. Our political, economic and social conditions are worst off today than they were fifty years ago because they lured us to sleep with integration and sold us on the fight for accommodation and so-called inclusion as being the ultimate solution to social progress. 

However, Jim Crow laws, racism and discrimination forced African Americans to create a separate economy and to build independent enterprises (this should have led us by now to reassess and reevaluate the question of separation versus integration). I think history would prove that blacks were better off under segregation because it forced us to do for-self and to build black institutions. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad called integration a hypocritical trick indeed this man was a visionary in which he stated, “my teachings can be summed up in six words, ‘accept your own and be yourself’. King put it all on the line for the quest of justice and freedom and had reached a zone that only has been reserved for the prophets, spiritual teachers, gurus, sages, etc., where their lives were meant to have meaning beyond the ordinary, but would be called to shape and serve humanity in extraordinary ways. Many of us in two life times will never reach this ultimate spiritual place. King got there and he was able to meet Buddha, Confucius, Zoroaster, Jesus, Muhammad, etc. 

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad stated there were three things that the Caucasian did not teach us Black people: 1). The science of mating. 2). The science of warfare and 3). The science of business. They (the Hidden Hand and/or Elitist) have mastered the science of symbolism and is moving around quite effectively in systems of codes and has allowed them to built an internal and external networking system that further allows them to dictate high/low finance which constitutes their present day past global success; how business will play out and who are going to be the players, is beyond are allowable capabilities as pawns in their system. Their networking system is impenetrable because of class and race (we will never get an invitation into his Dynastic world because of the lack of generational wealth) and although, his present world looks to be striving and moving forward, but in reality it has reached its zenith and it is in a decline and downward spiral (his 6,000 year rule is coming to an end).

The United States Dollar is worthless and weak and the evidence of its vulnerability was seen in 2008, when the United States almost entered into a second Great Depression relative to the banking system and the financial markets experiencing a drastic meltdown. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said in "Fall of America" that when we see the automobile and the steel industries collapse that will be the indication his total economic decline was nearing (the pendulum has swung opposite and contrary to his favor). So me believing in this reality, it's difficult for me to advise anyone to follow after any of their economic models and using any portion of his success as a model would be a terrible mistake. The Messenger taught us for 44 years to get some of this good earth that we can call our own (land is the basis of wealth and sovereignty) and he also said that we should have money, good homes and friendships in all walks of life (but his most profound principle was get up and do something for ourselves). 

Yet, if I was a commodity tradesman or adviser, I would advise my people to secure and invest in gold markets (and silver) and even when the dollar totally falls, gold will still have value (this is why the wise amongst us are buying up the gold). Also, the concept of bartering should be explored where no currency is exchanged for goods and services, but skills, intellectual property and tangible goods are exchanged and interchanged as non-monetary forms of commodities. The Jews in Tel Aviv, Israel and in Europe, as well as the United States are heavily involved on every level of the lucrative gold market (most of these precious metals can be found right there in black Africa) and yet we have no trade arrangement with our people in Africa in which many are Muslims.

Peace Brother Fahim --

As always, excellent article. I was especially drawn to what you said about so many of us worshipping the God of our oppressors. That has to be one of the biggest obstacles we still face as a people. Indeed, we were spiritual before we were enslaved, but the European, whose goal it was to make us fearful and ignorant of our true selves, has managed to keep us fearful and ignorant by fabricating a false ideology of invisible mystery gods and demons. When we study the ancient Kemetic philosophy, as well as the West African religions and traditions of our ancestors, we see that there really is nothing like the so-called Devil of European Christianity. There are of course forces that trick, befuddle, confuse, hurt, oppress, and tempt us, but our ancestors knew no fear because they knew the Most High was the supreme power and that the Most High could not be beat by these evil forces. But the European told us that if we did not obey him, his God would send us to some pit of hellfire to be tortured and maimed for eternity by some sadistic fallen angel. This belief still holds many of us back today.

Also (and I'm sure you are well aware of this), I'd like to add that we have been following the teachings of Yeshua much longer than the Europeans have. Most people believe that black Africans knew nothing of that sage until the slave master forced Christianity upon him. Of course, this is a lie, because the black Egyptians and Ethiopians were following the teachings centuries before the Europeans were. This so-called Christianity that our people practice must be called out for what it is: a shackle around our limbs, one that is keeping us from coming into knowledge of self. The European has appropriated and hijacked OUR religions and traditions, bastardized and warped them, and used them to enslave us. It truly is sad to see so many of my people blinded.


Thank you good brother for those thoughtful comments. Once again I always appreciate your insight and knowledge, it kind of let you know that you are not on a lonely island by yourself when I come across brothers such as yourself. I love to read other people's comments in particular, those that have the ability to think outside the box. They stole it and we must return it in which the challenge is to get our people to move away from that slave mentality. I have found little use for their schools of thought because I know that they used Christianity (or better yet what Constantine concocted in 325 A.D. at the Council of Nicea) to keep us docile and under control which was a systematic and strategic deviation from what Nubians had established for thousands of years in the Coptic Church found in Kush (Ethiopia) and Kemet (Egypt) surely African Christianity predated the western version by centuries. I first was exposed to this knowledge by reading the works of Dr. Curtis E. Alexander.
