Black Supremacy


Throughout history, white anglo-saxons have been notorious for
mistreating all races other than it's own. Malcolm X felt "the white man had
been actually nothing but a piratical opportunist who used Faustian machinations
to make his own Christianity his initial wedge in criminal conquests"(563). The
earth is burdened by the white man! That is the true meaning of what Malcolm X
is stating; the words Faustian machinations, meaning evil plotting, implies the
whole white population is out for the blood of other races. Many members of the
black race are adopting the idea of Afrocentricity; some call it black pride, I
call it black supremacy. Afrocentricists are supporting their ideas with
religion and the need for liberation.
The liberation of the black man is needed! Molefi Asante describes "the
Afrocentric awareness [as] the total commitment to African liberation anywhere
any everywhere by a consistent determined effort to repair any psychic, economic,
physical, or cultural damage done to Africans"(50). Liberation from what...the
white race? Molefi's statement is completely ludicrous; the first copy of his
book with this statement was printed in 1988, in my opinion blacks were fairly
liberated in 1988. Now the second part of his statement, repair what damage?
Any psychic damage which has been thrust upon the black race has not occurred
for quite some time: slavery...not in my lifetime nor separate bathrooms were
in my lifetime. And I am not about to feel sorry about what happened before my
time. Economic damage is not the white man's fault either. In this day anyone
can do whatever he/she likes. The truth to the economic matter is that many of
the "oppressed" races feel they now deserve a free ride. Absolutely no physical
damage has occurred in my lifetime. As for as cultural damage, cultures evolve,
they do not get damaged. Clearly all liberation of the black man has already
occurred, therefore, there is know further need for reimbursement.
The white race is evil! Further, the Afrocentric cause attempts to use
religion to denounce the white race as heathens; according the Yakub myth, "the
colour black...is the primal colour; other colours, consequently, are merely
shades of black, except for white, which is the absence of black, hence the
absence of perfection"(Davies 151). The statement declares the white race to be
inferior; why should any one race be inferior? Oh yeah, it's to get back at the
white race for all the years of hardship. The black race was called infidels
for many years, and the black supremists just believe what goes around comes
around. However, the truth to the matter is that all races are equally
imperfect as the next statement will show. The Afrocentric religion goes on to
state how the white race was formed, apparently, a "black scientist named Yakub
rebelled against Allah by producing...a new creature with an excess of
bad(white) genes...These evil creatures were alloted...six thousand years of
rule (i.e., until almost the present day), after which...the oppressed blacks
will be liberated from their bondage"(Davies 51). Note the use of words in this
passage: new creature, bad(white) genes, evil creature, and once again the
reoccurring oppressed blacks will be liberated. All the words directs one's
attention to the idea that the white race is nothing more than devils roaming
the earth in search of it's next prey. The black supremists are making the same
arguments that the early whites made and are being reprimanded for. It seems
this is a bit of a contradiction.
Down with the white race! Feelings towards the white race are made
apparent when "Elijah [Muhammad] felt that evil was inherent in the white race,
and preached that the whites could not help themselves," Molifi Asante adds "we
know now, of course, that the condition of evil in whites is not inherent, but
inherited through history and environment"(15). The quote is quite harsh;
directly saying that the white race is evil...no, not acting evil, is evil and
will continue to stay this way. These words imply the need for eradication
because evil is just the devil spelled without a "d". One must stand against
the devil before anything drastic occurs beyond what has already happened, for
instance; "an outburst of homosexuality among black men, fed by the prison
breeding system, threatens to distort the relationship between friends...these
gays live in the make-believe world of white gays"(Asante 57). The white race
has already begun to corrupt the black race, according to black supremists, with
the introduction of homosexuality, which is clearly a bad white habit. The word,
"threatens", leads one to the idea of defense against these evil, plotting, gay,
devils. Paraphrasing what was earlier said, the white race will cease to rule
after six thousand years of rule, setting all blacks free from the oppression of
the devils(Davies 51). That time is now and the black supremists want another
holocaust, with the white race suffering. The black supremists feel it is their
turn to rule.
Violence is the only way to stop the white race! During a speech
Malcolm X declared, "Twenty million ex-slaves must be permanently separated from
our former slavemaster and placed on some land we can call our own. Then we can
create our own jobs. Control our own economy. Solve our own problems instead
of waiting on the American white man to solve our problems for us"(Perry 68-69).
Clearly, in 1963, Malcolm X feels full segregation is in the best interest of
the black race. The quote appears fairly peaceful, however, two years later,
Malcolm X changes his mind about peaceful action: "We're for peace. But the
people that we're up against are for violence. You can't be peaceful you're
dealing with them"(Perry 159). A non-peaceful approach to further the black
cause is being proposed by Malcolm Little (his more appropriate birth name,
seeing how a "little" man resorts to violence). Eldridge Cleaver, leader of the
Black Panther's, too felt violence is the best approach; "I became a rapist...It
delighted me that I was defying and trampling upon the white man's law,...that I
was defiling his women...I was getting revenge"(14). This about says it, he was
putting a notch in the head board, winning one for the boys. Eldridge Cleaver
has, in my opinion, ignorant, uncivilized revolutionary ideas. He only wants
revenge for the fact he was in jail. Cleaver reveals that "Rather than owing
and paying a debt to society, Negro prisoners feel that they are being abused,
that their imprisonment is simply another form of the oppression which they have
know all their lives"(58). The Black Supremists want revenge.
Black supremists want nothing less than for the black race to rule the
world. They shall use ideas of religion to back up their claims upon the world
and call it the liberation of their people. But the truth of the matter is the
tides are turning. How can it be called liberation? The white race had these
ideas 100's of years ago and the black supremists called it evil. Now they have
the same evil ideas and are calling it liberation. No, the human race will
never learn from history; we will just repeat it. The main question is will
their ever be racial harmony in the world? I just don't know.

"We shall have our manhood. We shall have it or the earth will
be leveled
by our attempts to gain it."
--Eldridge
Cleaver
