Disliking African Materials

By Dr Selwyn R. Cudjoe
April 26, 2021

Dr. Selwyn R. CudjoeOn the same day Derek Chauvin, a white police officer in the US, was found guilty of murdering George Floyd, a black man, Gerald Ramdeen, attorney for suspended Inspector Mark Hernandez, head of the Special Operations Response Team (SORT), defended the innocence of Hernandez, who was charged with misbehaviour in public office.

Ramdeen remarked: “Mark represents a true patriot of Trinidad and Tobago and was responsible for weeding out heinous criminals and monsters who plague society off the streets. If there were more patriots like him Trinidad and Tobago would not be in the situation it is today.” (Express, April 20.)

Hernandez was arrested at his home for questioning into the deaths of Joel Balcon and Andrew Morris, two young black men who were murdered for their presumed participation in the kidnapping and killing of Andrea Bharatt that took place earlier this year.

Autopsies concluded that both Morris and Balcon died of “blunt force trauma”. Their families “believed that the men were beaten to death by police as the officers attempted to obtain information on Bharatt’s whereabouts”.

Nothing can lessen the tragedy of Bharatt’s death and the atrocious crime that was committed against her. The public interest in bringing the culprits to justice remains a top priority. However, when a lawyer for the defence refers to young black men as monsters, or cockroaches, or pests, as others have, then one sets the stage for the police brutality of which Chauvin was found guilty recently.

Ramdeen notes that Hernandez dedicated 23 years of his life to serving the people of T&T and should be honoured for that service. He calls him “a patriot”. Hernandez was even a nominee for the post of Deputy Commissioner of Police. Chauvin was a member of the Minneapolis Police Department for 19 years (he served from 2001 to 2020) when he committed his dastardly act. His length of service didn’t prevent him from seeing George Floyd as a brute void of human feelings.

This is the danger that arises when we depict black men as monsters, cockroaches and pests. It gives law enforcement officers carte blanche authority to treat them as animals. Black people have been fighting such dehumanisation for over 200 years. Frederick Douglass’s Narrative, published in the United States in 1845, was serialised in 1850 in the Trinidadian, a local newspaper published by blacks. In a note that accompanied its serialisation, George Des Sources, editor of the Trinidadian, wrote: “We invite the Honourable Mr [William] Burnley, [the major slave holder in the country] and others to begin its perusal at once. They may therein find some remedy for their infatuated dislike for ‘African Materials’.”

Ida B Wells, an investigative journalist who was born in Holly Springs, Mississippi, in 1862, chronicled the lynching of black men and women in the US by white people for allegedly raping white women and for being successful business people. She wrote: “The more I studied the situation, the more I was convinced that the Southerner had never gotten over his resentment that the Negro was no longer his plaything, his servant, and his source of income. The federal laws for Negro protection passed during reconstruction times had been made a mockery by the white South where it had not secured their repeal.” (Crusade for Justice)

When the Commissioner of Police refers to young black men as cockroaches, others call them “pests”, and Ramdeen sees them as monsters, they reinforce a stereotype that has been ingrained in the national consciousness for over 200 years. However, the T&T paradox is slightly different: even though the perpetrators of cruelty towards black men were not always white, black police officers may be acting out of a similar disdain for black men that white police officers have developed over the centuries.

On Monday, a judge in South Carolina upheld a 20-year prison term for white former police officer Michael Slager, who in 2015 was convicted of shooting an unarmed black man, Walter Scott, five times in his back after a traffic stop. In rejecting Slager’s appeal for a lighter sentence, Judge Richard Gergel, ruled: “In the end, even a great lawyer could not overcome the video of Slager shooting nine times at a running man’s back and then lying about it.” (Atlanta Black Star, April 22)

Hernandez may be a patriot and must be considered innocent until he is found guilty by a court of law, but the recent killings of black people in the United States and T&T suggest that many of the perpetrators of these murders callously disregard the humanity of black men and women.

Colin Palmer, one of the Caribbean’s more distinguished historians, argued that “the millions of African-descended peoples were united by a past based significantly against racial oppression, and despite their cultural and political variations, diaspora peoples faced broadly similar historical challenges in realising themselves” (The New York Times, July 11, 2019). This is why we feel the killing of black people in the US so deeply.

Chauvin’s attitude towards black people mattered. He never saw us as human beings. This is why people in public life ought to be careful of how they characterise those they are responsible to serve. This is especially true for how they describe young black men.

Des Sources’ warning about the dislike of “African materials” possesses a fundamental truth that continues to inform much of what Carl Jung describes as our “collective unconscious”, the deep psychological thoughts and feelings that result from “particular influences, traditions, and excitations” of which we are not consciously aware.

One hopes that T&T officials, particularly our police officers, begin to see their fellow citizens as human beings rather than monsters who need to be contained.

The nation’s salvation depends upon it.

  1. Mark Hernandez is Black. Most of the police officers are Black.
    Why do you think that these Black police officers do not “see their fellow citizens as human beings but rather as monsters who need to be contained?”

    1. Mark Hernandez may very well be of indian parentage. Also, Indian buisnessmen and politicians have a well established reputation of “influencing” police to do their bidding. Andrea Bharatt was an indian female and the suspects were africans.Morris may have been half indian, but disregarded by the indian community as “kneegah”.

      1. Hehe inconvenient you are the Hindu expert on this board. It shows how easy a demon possessed racist spirit can overtake an individual.

        I have friends from different tribes and I have learned a lot from them. Let me say for those drinking from Inconvenient fountain, beware.

        Africana people have savoured the fat of the land here in Trinidad. 90% of government housing went to Africans, 75% of government jobs, and government contracts for the favoured African sons and daughters coming straight from balisier house. 60% of the police are Africanas, army over 80% along with Coast Guard. We have an Africana Prime Minister, President, Chief Justice, Army, Coast Guard leaders. In addition to all of this 58 years of governance with the Opposition in power just over three terms, meaning the PNM has ruled TnT for over 40 years. They have plundered the treasury and made TnT bankrupt with a deficit reaching over a $125,000,000,000. They have shut down Caroni, Petrotrin and are now set to increase hardship on the citizenry.

        In the last 6 years of governance the tribalist lead by inconvenient mindset has spent over $300 billion with nothing to show. They have no flagship project. Meanwhile the UNC could boast of building one of the best airports in the Caribbean, that airport has paid for itself. The Couva hospital which is now used for Covid cases. The PNM refused to open it for years. UWI south, NESC centers, Camden Airport, Point Fortin Highway, the Point Fortin and Arima hospitals, free laptops, increased funding for GATE and school feeding programs, increased housing, plus 400 scholarships…..etc. This they did without increasing taxes but lowering taxes and leaving behind $31 billion extra in the HSF and import cover.

        To my Africana friends let me say Indian people love you. How do I know. The Indian population is the majority in TnT. And yet if Indians were as racist as Inconvenient is, they would not have supported the PNM. The muslims and Presbyterian Indians were the fore runners in the PNM. Today the 1% has taken over that position. Beware of racist like Inconvenient who cry foul all the time, he is mentally ill…..

          1. Hehe… you are obviously very misguided when it comes to Guyana. When Forbes Burnham took charge of Guyana, he aided by the CIA, unions and British foreign service, introduced one of the most brutal, repressive, anti Indian system of governance. So much so that over 300,000 fled. Burnham using the military was the worst dictator of the time stealing all elections.

            The massacre in the Wismar-Chistianburg and Mackenzie area lasted for a total of 38 hours; between 24th May, Sunday to 26th May, Tuesday – 1964.

            According to the committee, over 230 Indo-Guyanese homes and houses were destroyed, a person was even set on fire. Mr. Ramajjattan, a supporter of the PPP was found decapitated and a 15-year old girl was raped and apart from receiving physical injuries, went through a terrible mental shock. The thing is that these are just some of the instances mentioned among hundreds which have gone uncounted. The Africans who took part in the violence entered into the houses of the Indians hitting and molesting them while they shouted “kill de coolies”.

            The people, who managed to escape from their villages, remained hidden in the forests nearby. Unfortunately, the African mob followed them are hunted them down like animals. In the process over 1500 people became homeless.

            In the following days of 26th, 27th and 28th May, more than 500 of the Indo-Guyanese came out from their hidings in the forest and were taken to the refugee camps in Georgetown.

            Two river streamers were commissioned by the government to take the first batch of the Indo-Guyanese to Georgetown where the Africans pelted them with bricks, jeered and used shabby language at them, on their arrival. About 300 of the total number of Indians found shelters with their relatives while the rest had to sleep on the concrete floor of the pier warehouse.

            Seventy-five members of the Mackenzie Police and Volunteer force, who were all Africans, did not take any step to prevent the massacre. Even some of them were found to have themselves being part of the looting, beating and killing of the Indo-Guyanese. The volunteers did not help in any way to stop two women from being raped and they were ultimately saved by the members of DEMBA. In other instance, a young East-Indian was shot when he refused to go by their command.”

            I have met Indo Guyanese from that era, one young man was just 4 years old when he was shot, his grandmother covered and protected him. He said he just felt sorry for these people….the list of murder, rape, brutality against Indian people is endless in Guyana. Burnham took Guyana from being a wealthy nation to being the second poorest in the Caribbean.

            Inconvenient devil needs to get his facts straight. Again I must say I have nothing but love for my Afro brethren.. many are my friends. Don’t fall for inconvenient psychosis.

        1. The mind of a child…

          Ever since i rightfully referred to mamoo’s (Stephen) sick behaviour and posts as sociopathic and mentally illness, he has since regurgitated “mentally ill” as a child like retort. This is the psyche that lies beneath the personalities that crave power over T&T’s educational, political,legal and financial systems.

          https://www.dalitcamera.com/unmasking-the-virus-of-the-hindu-caste-system-and-islamophobia/

          1. You just jealous of these Hindus and secretly wish you were one of them. Just go live in India…inconvenient racist.

        2. If Mamoo, a brahman-ist (“Hindu”) nationalist, that demonsrtates a belief in the superiority of indians over africans, and uses agressive lies and deceptiive slander against them out of pure hatred…what value does the word “racist” have in his mouth? What type of sociopath would manipulate serious social issues just in a pathetic attempt to best another in banter? Because mamoo’s ethnic group never collectively fought FOR racial justice, co-opting and appropriating african social and racial justice feels trivial to him.The mere concept of fighting against, rather than alongside racial injustice is beyond his moral, religious and obviously psychological parameters. Like HP Singh, rudranath capildeo, bhadase sagan maharaj, his son in law sat maharaj and their political contemporaries, mamoo only sees “racism” applicable to whom he perceives as black and african…never europeans, chinese, arabs etc…only africans! Africans are the only “race” to collectively fight against racism consistently for 500 years and it is through their activism globally that has made actual racism a globally recognized act of injustice. Indians in contrast, have a global reputation for extreme, religiously rooted anti-african racism and an obnoxious tendency to “cry” racism outside of india, while simultaneously, vigorously practicing it on others. https://www.thehindubusinessline.com/todays-paper/tp-others/tp-blink/The-colour-of-my-skin/article20720274.ece?manerefThe most famous, perfect example is mohandas karamchand gandhi, the brahman-ist (“Hindu”) politician, who left india, to live in Africa and publicly aggressively sided with european racist, violent colonial oppression of africans. Gandhi’s racist activism in south africa, is cited by historians as the genesis of apartheid in that society. Gandhi essentially advocated for a brahman-ist (“Hindu”) “caste” structure of south africa which resulted in what became known as “apartheid” (separate-ness) as official state policy under european run south africa. What type of sick mind does that? The same mind that occupies mamoo.The continued perversed usage of the term “racism” by indians in trinidad, guyana, fiji etc. proves their disconnect with the social justice movement they try to appropriate from african culture for crass social and political benefit.

          1. You are sick “If Mamoo, a brahman-ist (“Hindu”) nationalist, that demonsrtates a belief in the superiority of indians over africans, and uses agressive lies and deceptiive slander against them out of pure hatred…what value does the word “racist” have in his mouth?”

            My best friends are married to Africana girls. I have no hatred for African people. Get help Inconvenient, you are not well.

          2. Guyanese History
            Just like every other colony the europeans imported indians to, the africans were enslaved there and built the wealth and infrastructure for centuries before indians came to work for a salary…with full human legal rights. Indians brought their anti-african, anti-black hatred and scorn in the form of religion and culture…which is why the europeans imported them. After independence, even though africans should rightly have been the ethnic group to offer the first premier of guyana (social justice), africans like forbes burnham willingly joined with indian politicians like cheddi jagan and his white wife, to forge a better future forward. After cheddi jagan assumed office, he was shocked at the 180 degree turn jagan, his wife and the PPP were making with regards to the society…the anti-black anti-african casteminded malice emerged in front of his and the other africans in the ppp, so they left and re-organized under a new party. That fact, is what indians in guyana and trinidad purposely omit when telling the history of the ppp-pnc-jagdeo-burnham split. Cheddi Jagan and his white wife’s anti-african, anti-black racism and their support for and facilitation of indian anti-black, anti-african racism in PP governance, post independence is what DROVE forbes burnham out of the ppp. However, the typically dishonest indian guyanese and indian trinidadisn narrative, as is peddled by the UNC, is that indian african relations were perfect UNTIL burnham left. These are LIES! Just as the lies being told about the violence in guyana and how it started and continues to present day.
            Anyone interested in an honest, factua, academic look at guyanese social, political, ethnic relations and violence history should get these books.Also, if you simply want to understand indian anti-black anti-african racism and where it truly emanates from, you should get these books.

  2. “Hernandez was arrested at his home for questioning into the deaths of Joel Balcon and Andrew Morris, two young black men who were murdered for their presumed participation in the kidnapping and killing of Andrea Bharatt that took place earlier this year.”

    Joel Balcon serial killer, rapist and sadist, enjoyed a career of terror spanning over a decade. Several women came forward and identified Balcon who was a skill operator a sadistic, cold and calculating animal. Many of these women were from Central, they identified the house where they were taken and barely survived. With 70 charges hanging around his neck the system of justice had failed these women, some murdered and thrown in the forest like worthless piece of trash. Balcon was afforded immunity by the justice system who released him at times on $5000 charges. Why was there not a complete investigation into this man conduct even after he died is beyond me, since several women came forward and identified him. Why wasn’t the house where he took them, subjected to an investigation? Perhaps because he is an African hero… Balcon, who police labelled as the mastermind in the kidnapping and murder of Bharatt, was known to the police as a sexual, drug, firearms, robbery and larceny offender.

    Then there is Andrew Morris a car thief who was beating the justice system also. Known drug dealer. The court for him was a revolving door. His lips was seal regarding Andrea and possibly other women.

    Anyways to me they are no hero and Hernandez was given the difficult task of dealing with these two coackaroaches… he did what he had to do given the revolving door justice system.

  3. The social pathologies so prevalent in North America and the Caribbean cannot be effectively addressed as long as “opinion leaders” like Mr. Cudjoe unwisely shield troublemakers and underperformers from criticism and punishment.

    Almost every time anyone tries to sanction blacks for irresponsible, corrupt or criminal behaviour, writers like Mr. Cudjoe defend the indefensible by invoking the history of slavery, lynchings, Jim Crow, etc. We invariably receive a lecture about the disparagement and dehumanisation inflicted on the Negro for hundreds of years.

    Problem is, bad behaviour will spread if there are no consequences for those who take advantage of others, or who break the rules because they lack integrity, decency, or an active conscience. Mr Cudjoe does not seem to be sufficiently outraged by thieves or kidnappers, much less by the sexual promiscuity that produces and reproduces single-parent households — the households that are primarily responsible for large numbers of juvenile delinquents and academically hopeless children. Guess what happens to those children when they become adults.

    1. In trinidad and tobago, just as in other parts of the caribbean, the entire society has been economically, socially and politically undermined by the racist ORGANIZED criminal syndicates of non-african ethnic groups. These racist, violent, criminal syndicates use bribery, exthoration and murder, to coerce and entice politicians, law enforcement, judges, lawyers etc. to facilitate their predation and destruction of these societies. Academic research of Dr. Dauris Figueira has empirically illustrated this as the reality…T&T only has non-african criminal families and communities, and the ethnic groups are:

      Indian (Largest)
      Syrian/Lebanese,
      Chinese
      European

      The research shows that ONLY africans are being herded off to prison as scapegoats of the aforementioned ethnic groups and their perversed ethnocratic anti-african judicial system. Meanwhile, the children of these racists like “chad chen” try to deflect blame AND GUILT unto africans who are victims of the system. Chad Chen and his “Blacks like cudjoe…” rhetoric is just another anti-african,anti-black racist.

      Violence you say?

      1. Wherever accurate, detailed records are kept in the United States Canada or the Caribbean, blacks — whether African-American, Jamaican, Bahamian, Trinidadian, or other nationalities — consistently show up as the most frequent and the most violent law-breakers, exceeded only on occasion by Native (Indigenous) Indians.

        Yet to hear black commentators tell it, blacks are mostly victims and scapegoats, herded into courtrooms and packed off to prisons while the “real criminals”, who belong to other racial groups, somehow escape punishment because they are “clever” and “organized”.

        If that were true, we would be seeing the “real criminals” prosecuted by the U.S. government from places like New York and Miami. I can assure you that American prosecutors are fearless and often overzealous. The fact that we are not seeing such prosecutions tells me your claims are probably not true.

    2. “Troublemakers and underperformers…” “Chad Chen”

      Who is more bad behaved and steals more than those who rose to power between 1995-2001, and 2010-2015? Who causes more trouble than drug, gun and human trafficking cartels?Where has Selwyn ever shielded these chinese, indian, syrian and european run criminal cartels? These cartels make the entire COUNTRY and region perversed and underperform socially, politically and morally. Who then are the actual troublemakers and underperformers in T&T, the architects and masons or the victims?

      1. Inconvenient Racist. Seems as though you are Kean Gibson or a big fan of this nut. He thinks like you and Yawning. Keep promoting your diatribe and cheap trash on the Guyanese sites. The PNC supporters will buy it, u wastin your time here!

          1. I see you expert on the caste system. Take your complaint to India and stop trying to interpose your copy and paste ideas on this site. You lil racist off topic idiot.(smile)

  4. Quoting Dr. Cudjoe:

    One hopes that T&T officials, particularly our police officers, begin to see their fellow citizens as human beings rather than monsters who need to be contained.

    The nation’s salvation depends upon it.

    cockroach = black = african

    I have been trying on this blog to get my Negro co-ethnics to see that the (relatively new) terms “black” and “african” that most have adopted for our people are sorcerers’ terms of art intended to degrade and to curse our people.

    The term, “cockroach,” does the same, but is actually less offensive, because in its referent, it is meant to apply only to street criminals. The terms “black” and “african”, by contrast, are used to apply to all o’ we. The subtlety of the sorcery is that we no longer see these terms as the put-downs that they are — and were intended to be.

    Therefore, as a continuing burden for me on this blog, let me seek to enlighten.

    But first, let me confess I have no sympathy — none — for the criminals in this matter. At the same time, I do not support a kind of policing where the police take on the role of judge, jury and executioner. That way lies a slippery slope, to where the police may become even worse than the criminals. Who then will stand guard if the police can’t be trusted? Therefore, the police, like the military, must function under a jealously enforced code of conduct. If Insp. Hernandez overstepped the bounds in that regard, he must be made to pay, and made an example of. Otherwise, the republic itself is put at risk.

    But I seek here to address the different matter of the insulting and dehumanizing epithet of “cockroach” used by no less than the Police Commissioner to refer to our street criminals. This is unprofessional of him and he should desist.

    I do not see a necessary racial angle to it, although I well recognize that the latter-day would-be re-enslavers of the Negro would very much like to apply such a brush.

    Anyone that does not know who he is, or that submits to naming by his enslaver, is a fool, and in any case easily made a fool of. As a simple example, a Negro may “convert” to Islam, and find himself given the new Muslim name, “Abd” or even “Abdul”. It may take him years to discover that his new name means “slave”. Yes they will sugar-coat it and say it means “servant of Allah”, but in ordinary Arabic, “slave” is what it means; it is a slur, and a common noun of category used to refer in derogatory way to Negroes.

    If the Negro knows that the very term, Negro, labels him as one of the line from which came the Nega (king) David, he will not convert in the first place to a QED-provable false Gentile religion. For even the Q’uran acknowledges Holy Scripture wherein we find:

    Psalms 147:19-20. “He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel. 20 He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the LORD.”

    Therefore, Mohammed could not be a prophet as claimed, since he was not of the line of Jacob/Israel, as in fact is the Negro. And also:

    Jeremiah 16:19. “O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.”

    This puts the Negro on notice that ALL gentile religion would be teaching LIES of one sort or another, albeit mixed in with some truth, the better to advance the lies. This applies to Gentile Christianity, Gentile Islam, Gentile Judaism, Gentile atheism, Gentile Marxism, Gentile communism, Gentile brahminism — to ALL Gentile isms/ideology whatsoever. It also means that to understand Holy Scripture, the Negro must read it himself, and rely not at all on any futile Gentile attempts to decode the Word.

    This helps us to understand the persistent efforts down through the centuries to “de-nigrate” the Negro. That term, “de-nigrate” is instructive. In its literal meaning, it means to “take the NEGA (king) out of the Negro”. Our enemies have indeed been confederate against us in that regard, as was prophesied:

    Psalms 83:2-6. “For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
    3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
    4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
    5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:
    6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;…”

    The soft-hair alliance of our enemies round about are agreed on that one point: they all seek to de-nigrate the Negro, and indeed the Most High allowed them all at one point or another to enslave us — to wound us with a cruel wound, and to “cut us off as a nation”. It was essential to their purpose that we be made to forget who we were as a people, and where we came from, — most especially that we are as a people those from whom came NEGA (king) David. As part of that de-nigration, it was useful to put upon us labels that associated us with non-entities.

    White Gentile Christianity found it necessary to insert their likeness in place of the true likeness, and gave us the LIE of white Jesus. Then they changed the term, Negro/Niger, into a slur, nowadays “nigger”. The term has been rendered into a term of such offense, that it dare not even be spoken. Therefore, various substitutes and euphemisms have been sought for, allegedly of greater dignity.

    One of those is “black”. The Online Etymology Dictionay includes this passage:

    The usual Old English word for “black” was sweart (see swart). According to OED: “In ME. it is often doubtful whether blac, blak, blake, means ‘black, dark,’ or ‘pale, colourless, wan, livid.’

    Thus we see the clue that “black” could mean “pale, colorless”. In earlier editions I well remember seeing cognate terms “bleac” and “bleach” and “blank”. A variant of the last is “blanc”, and is a variant form of reference for white people. In Hebrew lettering is the clue to its original meaning: BEIT.LAMED.CHETH. The pictographic meaning inhering in these Hebrew letters is of a house, a long pole/goad, and a picture of the outside of a house. It is something thrown out of the house, to be touched with a long stick — garbage in a word. It is a bleached-out thing, a thing from which all value has been sucked out. It was not originally a term of color designation at all. That term lies in the phoneme, “swa-“, hence terms like “swarthy”, “schwarz” (German) etc. The Hebrew for “color” (the attribute) is “shachor”. Dark as in skin tone is “swa-“. Pale is “sa-“, which also means the moon — pale moon. So we see straight-away that Satan is associated with pale skin. And we see the term, “swahili” is referencing the dark skin of the peoples that speak that language. Swaziland is also a term that includes a reference to a dark-skinned people. There is also a hint that the original people of Sweden and Switzer-land would have been dark-skinned. I say all of that to conclude that the term “black” is in its original meaning no reference to skin color, rather a reference to refuse, or garbage, a thing of no worth.

    How is that different in meaning and intent from “cockroach”, when used by one’s enemy to degrade, and dehumanize. Our Negro forefathers, not that many generations back, knew that meaning and connotation of “black”, and resented and rejected such designation. It had nothing to do with skin color. The sorcerer’s art involved changing the meaning to reference a color, and removing from use the actual word for a dark skin color, which used to be “swarthy”, and even “stewart”, which latter was an “inconvenient truth”, because it adverted to the Negro origin of the British royal house of Stuart.

    Therefore, to say “I am black and proud”, as James Brown famously sang, is to say “I am a useless piece of trash, and I am proud”. One is cursing oneself. This is just a variant on the trick played on Negro converts to Islam who are named Abd or Abdul. They call you “slave” and you answer, thinking it means “servant of the Most High”.

    This brings us to African/Afrikan. Afrika is an anagram of “kafira”. In Hebrew, also Arabic, –for Hebrew is the parent language of Arabic, –the pictographic representation is the same for both words, except for the order. Letters pey.resh.kaf vs kaf.pey.resh. The essential meaning is thus the same. Vowels are irrelevant. Therefore, the place name, “Afrika,” basically means the land of “kaffirs”. The essential meaning in Arabic is that of a slur — the
    “land of niggers” would be a near-approximation, although the Arabs are well trained in double-talk and will suggest something else. Therefore, the term is a term of de-nigration. It is intended to separate the Negro from the NEGA (king) David.

    Therefore, the term “Afrikan/African” is another sorcerer’s term of art having the same intended sense as “cockroach”, a term of dehumanization. Yet our wisest intellectuals embrace it. How many know that it is only recently that that continent is even called “Africa”?

    I call upon my co-ethnics to wake up, and renew acquaintance with the writings of our Negro forefathers the prophets, without using any sort of Gentile lens to do so. They are enemies, that “hate thee”, committed still to our de-nigration.

    Shalom.

    1 Maccabees 3:47-48 . “Then they fasted that day, and put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes, 48 And laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.”

  5. The level and intensity of Inconvenient Truth’s hatred and racism is bordering on some sort of neurosis, probably rooted in negative interactions and experiences with certain individuals. His obsession and preoccupation with “everything” Indian are probably as a result of living or studying in India resulting in his skewed interpretations, focusing only on the negative. Even Trini- Indians with similar experiences in India come away with similar reactions if they have not experienced the country and its peoples in its entirety.

    1. Tman, mamoo, tariqandalus, are vile, anti-african racists who are obsessed with slandering and villifying africans, while throwing around accusations of “hatred” and “racism” without any proof or clear logic other than malice.There is no point reasoning with their warped psyches…highlighting indian racism and anti-african anti-black hatred in their communities, is maliciously interpreted AS “racism” and “hatred”.Tman apparently knows india better than indians living in india.

      1. Judge not that you be not judge, the same measure you use to judge others it will be used to judge you.
        You seem to be the judge on this board. Unfortunately you are the one having the problem. I just respond to you out of pure entertainment. My black brethren is priceless in my life and these judgmental characteristics you imputing to me is merely a reflection of your own insipid hatred. A heart filled with dung…hahaha.

      2. Where did this idea come from that Africans can only be discriminated against, but cannot themselves be discriminators.
        Time to end this victimhood status and join the rest of the universe in reality,
        No one denies the discrimination, enslavement, exploitation, and minimization of African peoples all over the world. But let’s get real, you guys are good at dishing it out to others also , especially Indians who you view as a threat to your power and acceptance. let me assure you Inconvenient truth, It is no contest.

        1. LIES! There will be no “rest” as long as these lies are told! Africans globally have historically treated indians with nothing but brotherhood and love, only to be met with scorn. disdain and wannabe “aryan” hostilities. Just as with white extremist intellectual racism in the US & UK, there is an obsession among indian ideological racists, to try to convince africans that they are also racist. It’s a sick desire to smear the character of the victims of their racism (africans), so as to artificially keep the wheel of hate turning in their hearts, minds and communities…especially the youth. Ironically, even though indian anti-black anti-african racist ideology is inherently selfish and desirous of hoarding wealth, educational achievement, all symbols of power and dignity in society for themselves, while denying the same to africans, there is one critical thing they love to share with africans…BLAME!

          1. I am disappointed in Birdie and Yoruba Israel, because they empowered you Inconvenient, when I am sure they know better.

            I am not surprised though accusing the 1.4 billion Indians as being racist and oppressing black folks is a bit of a stretch. But you are a racist Inconvenient, you see race in everything. Get some help.

            Today I will be meeting by black brother from another mother. He told me once he never looked at “Roots” the movie because he did not want to develop internal prejudices about people. He said he and his family have friends of all races. And that is how they live. The past should not affect his relationship with others because there is something call individual responsibility.
            Peace out.

  6. Quoting Mamoo:

    I am disappointed in Birdie and Yoruba Israel, because they empowered you Inconvenient, when I am sure they know better.

    Steups! Stupid nonsense as usual from Mamoo.

    It is to Inconvenient’s credit that he lays bare the basis of the charges he lays. Therefore you have every opportunity to prove him wrong. Bring your pundits to do so if you yourself are unable.

    Inconvenient is providing a service to the Negro as intended. And I for one appreciate it.

    He is also providing a service to the indo. That is the nature of Truth. It empowers ALL who submit themselves to it, including and especially the guilty who find themselves convicted, because submission to it is the first and necessary step of repentance and thereby obtaining forgiveness. It is only the truly wicked that will not repent wrong-doing.

    Revelation 16:9-11. “And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
    10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,
    11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.”

    I withhold my peace from Mamoo and others of his unrepentant ilk, but to all others I say

    Shalom.

    That which is hidden shall be brought to light.

    Proverbs 25:2. “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter. “

    1. Maybe I was wrong about holding you in such high esteem maybe you just a rabid racist like Inconvenient and Birdie eh Yarooba.

    1. Quoting Arundhati Roy from that interesting interview:

      …in India, who is allowed to protest, who is allowed to say what, depends on their religion, caste, ethnicity and gender. There is no such thing here as equality—not even a hint of the idea of equality. Not even a pretence of it. This is what curses us as a country—intellectually, socially and economically.

      This is the clear-sightedness of the truth-teller. This is what the SDMS and UNC want to establish within this country.

      They have had some success in doing so. Their separate and sectarian SDMS schools have been used to indoctrinate and initiate — as into a Satanic cult, literally — generations of indo youth into this intellectual, social, economic and moral abomination.

      Regrettably the vast majority of those initiated into this Satanic abomination will never change. The evidence of that is present right here on this blog, on this very thread.

      So let it be. The Most High knows His people, and He knows their enemy. The one He will redeem, the other He will judge. The Most High is now visiting the earth, and rendering that judgment. That is why Covid is falling disproportionately on those who have historically afflicted the Negro. Edomite Italy, Spain, Britain, U.S., Portuguese/Brazil, and now indo-Aryan Edomite India. We shall see how further this plague, and others, will unfold, for there are other enemies of the Negro seemingly yet untouched.

      Genesis 15:13-14. “And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
      14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.

      I see in the daily papers that Rev Knolly Clarke is today calling for a National Day of Prayer on May 1st. This suggests a glimmer of recognition that we are indeed in the midst of a Plague, brought by the Most High. The proper response is indeed prayer. But the Most High hears not the prayer of sinners (John 9:31), therefore whatever prayers are offered in the name of “inter-religious faith” shall be to no avail.

      The Most High commands differently:

      Deuteronomy 7: 5-6. “But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire.
      6 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.”

      This is a time for His people to “come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and receive not of her PLAGUES” (Revelation 18:4 ).

      That also means, btw, to come out of the Catholic Church which authorized the enslavement of the Negro (Papal Bull, “Dum Diversas” issued by Pope Nicolas V to start Spanish and Portuguese conquest in the West). That explains why Negro Jesus had to be kept hidden in Rome. But I digress…

      Shalom.

      Psalms 141:1-6. “LORD, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.
      2 Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
      3 Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.
      4 Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.
      5 Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities.
      6 When their judges are overthrown in stony places, they shall hear my words; for they are sweet.”

      1. To Yorooba….
        “This is the clear-sightedness of the truth-teller. This is what the SDMS and UNC want to establish within this country.
        They have had some success in doing so. Their separate and sectarian SDMS schools have been used to indoctrinate and initiate — as into a Satanic cult, literally — generations of indo youth into this intellectual, social, economic and moral abomination.“—-Yoruba.

        In the 1950s, the SDMS along with the Presbyterians open schools in far flung areas. I received a formal education in an SDMS school, back then I remember there were African children, Muslims and Christians. The SDMS embraced all along with the Presbyterian schools.

        Had it not been for those schools a significant volume of children would have been nothing but mental slaves like you Yoruba. In the Hindu college in Penal Shiva boys they produced some of the top cricketers and soccer players. Many of them don’t look like me. The schools were just that schools, today they might be pushing more of the religious side. But back then we learned religious tolerance unlike in some parts of the world were people kill for their religion.

        In my family there are Hindus, Christians, Presbyterians….we respect each other, knowing that individual choice is what God gave all of us. I might not agree with their choice but then they may not agree with mines.

        Yoruba you professing to be a religious man is very judgmental, condescending and mindless on racism. Be true to yourself instead of following inconvenient….one nut is enough on this board.

        Shalom.

    2. Please your love for India and Arundathi Roy is incredible it’s about the upteen time you copy and paste her nonsense. Are you running out of material inconvenient?

    1. I guess you found your flagship in this woman. You have reposted her upteen times on this site. I guess this is one who ditched you Inconvenient…no wonder you so upset. She is a beautiful woman in Texas. You know every time someone look at her post she make money from Utube. Kean Gibson, Rickford Burke and Bernard Yawning, love her also…

  7. If one could picture Mamoo, Tman, Tariqandalus and chad chen with the most powerful ministerial portfolios, THAT’S UNC(/COP/ and Indian politics in T&T and Guyana

  8. Quoting Mamoo:

    The schools were just that schools, today they might be pushing more of the religious side. But back then we learned religious tolerance ….

    Ms. Roy was condemning racist, casteist and religious inequality that is part and parcel of hindutva political, social, and economic practice. That is in India. We see it here too in T&T. It is even laid out in all its ugliness in the Indian Policy document.

    I do not deny that the lip service may be different. Satan is well able to transform himself, seemingly, into an angel of light. That is the whole point of all the calculating, lying propaganda that was developed around the person of Mahan Dass Gandhi. The whole world was deceived.

    But there in India, and here in T&T and elsewhere, the veils of LIES and DECEPTION have been lifted. Leladharsingh will find that the “niggers” are not so “gullible” as before.

    Daniel 12:4. “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

    We are now at the “time of the end” spoken of by Daniel. Who could have foreseen the internet and Google. Knowledge has indeed increased as prophesied. Ignorance is now a choice. It is only the wicked, given the choice between bitter truth, and fair-seeming LIES, will opt every time to uphold self-serving LIES.

    It is not only the indo and their hindutva abomination that stand condemned by this observation.

    White Gentile Christianity/Catholicism also stands condemned, and will remain condemned for as long as it refuses to acknowledge Negro Jesus .

    Islam also stands condemned. Not only is its theology a QED-provable nonsense, but its practice also is hypocritical — they are unrepentant in wrong-doing, at minimum as to (1) paganistic veneration of the kaaba stone at the annual hajj, a stone in the shape of a woman’s private part; (2) man-stealing (leading Negro Jacob into captivity); and (3) killing the innocent incidental to the spread of empire, and killing those, –convicted by conscience,– who choose to reject and remove themselves from the umma (Islamic congregation). That is only a start. They too are excellent players of the art of DECEPTION — look up the Islamic doctrine of “taqqiyah”. The double-talk is staggering.

    So I am not picking on hinduist brahminism.

    As a student of Holy Scripture, moreover called, chosen, and faithful, my job in these end-times is to bring my Negro brethren to the long-awaited, long promised Redemption. We are sons of Scriptural Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, moreover the people from whom come the NEGA (king) David. The Gentiles have been “confederate” against us:

    Psalms 83:2-8. “For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
    3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
    4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
    5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:
    6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;
    7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;
    8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.”

    Whether white Edom, indo-Aryan Edom, white Arab Ishmaelite, brown Arab Ishmaelite, black Arab Ishmaelite, brown Hamite (e.g. Somali), or black Hamite (e.g. Islamicized Fulani in Nigeria seeking to enslave Negro Yoruba and Igbo) they have been confederate against us. A major part of the conspiracy has been to use false religion to enslave first our mind.

    John 8:32. “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

    So we must give up the deceptive LIES of Islam, Christianity/Catholicism, and the ecumenical LIES of the IRO…. then all the ideological LIES resting on some or other ideas of constitutional democracy, and finally return to Zion. The Negro literally has no choice. Neither for that matter has the Gentile. In any case, the battle is between the righteous (Zion) and the wicked (Egypt, Syria, Asia, Babylon — all the “enemies” of the Most High and the Negro).

    I withhold my peace from Mamoo and his wicked ilk, but to all others I say

    Shalom.

    Genesis 15:13-14. “And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
    14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.”

    May thy will be done, Father!

  9. Ahhh yoruba…you know about taqqiyah as well. Westerners are socialized into ‘one god’ multiculturalist politics that extends ignorance as a courtesy to non biblical theology in the delusion of thinking that all religions and cultures are somehow flavours of christianity and moored to biblical morality. This is of course inaccurate and alternative to the factual reality.

  10. …This is of course inaccurate and alternative to the factual reality.

    Another case of the triumph of SWEET LIES over BITTER TRUTH…

    Shalom.

    Revelation 21:8. “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

  11. Your righteous condemnation of all and sundry is staggering. It is time to take off your halo and come down to earth. Your quest ” to bring my Negro brethren to the long-awaited, long promised Redemption” is futile. No one is line. Your “Negro brethren” have already willingly and proudly adopted the ways and nomenclature of his masters in every quarter.
    Matthew 7:1-5
    “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

    1. Your quest ” to bring my Negro brethren to the long-awaited, long promised Redemption” is futile. No one is line. Your “Negro brethren” have already willingly and proudly adopted the ways and nomenclature of his masters in every quarter.
      Matthew 7:1-5
      “Judge not, that you be not judged.

      If you think my efforts futile, why do you respond, and with this drivel?

      It is a shot peradventure, hoping to hit its target, but not really expecting to do so, because you have not even tried to take proper aim.

      Your low dig, — “his masters”, — is a shot in the foot, as you concede thereby that which I have been asserting — the indo in these parts wish to “make the ‘niggas’ our slaves,” per Item #3 of the “Indian Policy”.

      In that wish you will assuredly fail, as it is written.

      Nahum 1:9. “What do ye imagine against IYEHAWAH? he will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.”

      What a silly ass!

      I withhold my peace from you and others of your wicked ilk, but to others I say

      Shalom.

      1 Corinthians 2:15. “But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.”

    2. Your righteous condemnation of all and sundry is staggering.

      Another point.

      As a matter of elementary schoolboy logic, the Gentile religions certainly cannot ALL be right, since they are mutually contradictory.

      That they can ALL be wrong is obvious even to a 10 year old child.

      Therefore, there is nothing LOGICALLY staggering in seemingly condemning — I’m glad you think it a “righteous” condemnation — “all and sundry”.

      In any case, it is not what I say, it is what Scripture says.

      I withhold my peace from you and others of your wicked ilk, but to others I say

      Shalom.

      Jereniah 16:19-20. “O IYEHAWAH, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited LIES, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit. 20 Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they are no gods?”
