Been There and Done That by Akindele Akinyemi



There are some in this community that feels that I am out of touch because I am a Black Conservative.

For the record I too used to be a Black Grassroots Activist. A very hardcore activist that was the original architect of the MAD Writer Productions. I used to bleed Black Nationalism. I used to be a bleeding liberal and supported all Democratic policies.

I studied with the Nubian Islamic Hebrews and Ansaarullah Community on Grand River back in the day. Read books from Dr. York like Leviathan 666, Was Christ Really Crucified and The Day of the Pentecost.

I was part of the Holy Tabernacle Ministeries and Nuwaubian Moors back in the day.

I hung with the Nation of Gods and Earths on Jefferson Ave. I remember battling at night with the Gods and Earths on the Supreme Lessons.

I studied with the Ausar and Auset group.

I was with Blackwatch at one point.

Rolled with the Revolutionary Workers League for a minute.

Supported BAMN for a hot minute.

I studied with the Nation of Yahweh.

I studied with the Nation of Islam (under John Muhammad, Farrakhan and Solomon Allah).

I hung with the Black Israelites.

I rolled with the Black Hebrews under Rabbi Ben Ammi.

I studied the Black Radical Congress.

I was a member of ASCAC.

I spent five years with the Shirne of the Black Madonna of the Pan African Orthodox Christain Church. Four of those years was with the Black Slate where I produced and hosted the radio program on FM 88.1 WHPR. Anyone in the present day grassroots in Detroit know I was active in the Shrine and was a Maccabee (the security force of the PAOCC).

I have debated with the Jewish Defense League on stage as well as ACLU.

Hung out with the New Alliance Party under Lenora Fulani.

Studied with the Masons and Eastern Stars. I was a member of the Ancient Egiptian Order and Ancient Mystic Order of Melchezidek.

Supported the New Marcus Garvey Movement in Detroit under Min. Malik Shabazz.

Supported Keep the Vote No Takeover in Detroit.

Built with the late Dr. Khallid Abdul Muhammad.

Studied with Dr. Llaila Afrika, Dr. Yosef ben-Yochanan, the late Dr. John Henrik Clarke, Dr Ivan van Sertima, Dr. Molefi K. Asante, Dick Gregory, Dr. Marimba Ani and even Dr. Frances Cress Welsing.

Read the works of Dr. Conrad W. Worrill, Dr. Jacob Carruthers, Ernie A. Smith, Ph.D., Dr. Greg Kimathi Carr, Muata Ashby, CLR James, Amos Wilson, Walter McCray, Cheikh Anta Diop, Nathan and Julia Hare, Na’im Akbar, the late Harold Cruse, Gerald Massey, Chancellor Williams , J.A. Rogers, Cornell West, Henry Louis Gates, Albert Cleage, Carter G. Woodson, Booker T. Washignton and WEB DuBois to name a few.

Music I listened to (and in many cases still do):

Public Enemy

Boogie Down Productions

Fugees

Digable Planets

Big Daddy Kane

X-Clan

Tribe Called Quest

Paris

Gangstarr

Jeru the Damaja

Intelligent Hoodlum to name a few.

After living my life as an angry Black man for so many years I gave all that up. It led me to a dead end.

To all of you who read and call me names on this blog all I can say is:

Been There and Done That.

Like I wrote before, the hatred and venom you spew towards Black Dems is reason enough for Blacks to not trust you.

My Dear Brother ;
While you may have "been there, done that" , the job of upliftment , freedom ,justice and equality has not yet been accomplished . Therefore , many ofus are still here , still doing that.
May God bless us all to be succesful as we struggle with the light of understanding.
Your Brother ,
Sultan

There is no hatred and venom i spew. Just reality.

While there is the job of upliftment, freedom and equality do we have to do this in the same exact manner like we did 40 years ago?

Coopted Puppet - The Bible teaches that you can't uplift people until you come down to their level & live amongst them & help them lift their burdens together -
One doesn't uplift by putting another person down that you are trying to uplift
Because of technology the struggle must change but Black Afrikans will not achieve upliftment by becoming coopted - selfish - materialistic - unappreciative of our Ancestors liberation efforts - The goal must remain the same - SELF DETERMINATION FOR the BLACK AFRIKANS OPPRESSED BY WHITE EUROPEAN_AMERICAN RACIAL SUPREMACY!

Come on your level..I like it right here!!!

I tell the facts. That's all.

It pisses you off that I have mastered your pseudo-sciences. One day, you will leave the darkside and come into the light.

FreeMan said...

Coopted Puppet - Why are you using White European-American racism against one that supports Black Afrikans? - the "darkside" is bad to you & represents Black Afrikan nationalism -
the "light" is good to you & represents White European-American Control by Colonialism of Black Afrikans
This is consistent with US White European-American Racism where Black = Bad & Light is Better
Could it be Black Afrikan Self Hatred?
Afrika 4 Afrikans!

like I said freeman, you are pissed that I have mastered your narrow view of the world. This is why you have a hard time convincing me.

You are still stuck in 1966 and I am moving ahead in 2006.

This is why you call me coopted because I am successful in my life. You are not. I have friends of all colors. You cannot say the same.

FreeMan said...

Coopted Puppet - Let's be clear I've given up trying to convince you a long time ago - You can show a person the water but you can't make them drink - I expose your lies & destruction of Black Afrikan people & poor people & sexism of women
If you understand Black Nationalism you are doubly bad to Black Afrikan people because you use Willie Lynch Divide & Conquer techniques against Young Black Afrikans & Older Black Afrikans - You demean Black Afrikans by referring to us in White European-American Horror Movie Terms "Swamp Thing" - Hood Rats - the N word- You also demonstrate Black Afrikan Self Hatred
Your definition of success will cause Black Afrikans to be subjugated to White European-Americans through colonialism
I understand that the structure of US society of White European-American racism which was demonstrated in 1966 has not been changed in 2006

you have not given up because you always trying to convince me to think like your poor ass.

You can show a person the water but you can't make them drink - I expose your lies & destruction of Black Afrikan people & poor people & sexism of women

you have not exposed anything. I have given solution after solution on this blog since its inception. All you have done is called me name after name after name. No one give a two cent s#$* about your poor nationalist outdated ideologies.

If you understand Black Nationalism you are doubly bad to Black Afrikan people because you use Willie Lynch Divide & Conquer techniques against Young Black Afrikans & Older Black Afrikans -

I speak the facts whether you like it or not. I live in the real world not your piss poor Black world fantasies.


You demean Black Afrikans by referring to us in White European-American Horror Movie Terms "Swamp Thing" - Hood Rats - the N word-

I never called no one a nigger on this thing. Swamp things and hood rats is what they are to me. I live in gotham city you don't. These people do not want help..they want death.

You also demonstrate Black Afrikan Self Hatred

Liar. I love myself more than you love your own family and God. YOU are the only fool that calls me this.


Your definition of success will cause Black Afrikans to be subjugated to White European-Americans through colonialism
I understand that the structure of US society of White European-American racism which was demonstrated in 1966 has not been changed in 2006

What's interesting is that you will not reveal who you are. I have nothing to hide unlike you coward who hide and seek. My name is real..look it up on google fool. Ask anyone in this grassroot movement who I am. Ask anyone in either Demcoratic or Republican party and they BOTH will tell you nothing but good things about me. Educators love my works. All those groups I named love me and respect me. Regardless of our different approach to things we still can enjoye each other's company in the end.

You are the only asshole I know that comes on MY BLOG to challenge me on a regular basis. Try to belittle me. Yet, I still continue to write unlike your pathetic ass. Tell me what have you offered lately on your blog other than affirmative action..somthing that is gone and yet you have not came with a solution to this issue.

Today's black power is Black conservatism not some socialist bullshit you promote.

First of all Coopted Puppet - because I am fighting against the racist fascist White European-American Supremacy System I must account for government suppported repression against me personally - You on the other do not have that problem - I have to be more careful because I fight for the Poor & Black Afrikan people & Women
Look at "blog.zenaslaw.com" - we are focusing on Michigan Jury Trial system which was further made less equal for Black Afrikans - People of Color & Women by Black Afrikan Republican sponsored Justice Robert Young who voted the deciding vote to make illegal under Michigan law Judge's attempt to follow federal law to have a jury reflect the community based upon racial & gender considerations -
You don't care about that
But my holy book tells me that Colonialism is a Sin & Self determination for God's people is God's Will -
Because of White European-American racism Black Afrikans can not enjoy Self Determination in intergrated institutions we must control our own institutions - increased equality in juries will help in this goal
You work with this issue & I will detemine if you are sincere POB 311495, Det., MI 48231-1495
