One Journey into and out of the Anarchist BLACK!
(from Anarchist Panther zine #4)
Anarchy as a journey
in the human story has a long and crazy road. In fact, it is where the Human
Story begins. It is the story of human life BEFORE the advent, the institutionalization
of The Muthafuckas. (Eldridge Cleaverian definition, ha).
archeologists, etc., have been finding pieces to a fantastic set of puzzles.
And notice that I used the plural! As they begin to lay these pieces down, pictures
are forming of our social beginnings that will shock, surprise and amaze many.
Most of us may even find them revolting because these pictures go so extremely
contrary to all that weve been raised to believe about the stories of
the human species on this planet.
In the Beginning
was the WORD? No.
In the Beginning
was the WOMB! Hmm?
I remember one
of Nikki Giovannis poems where she took us on a daydream journey into
the land of New York City , USA before it was Babylon, when it "belonged"
to the Indigenous Peoples; when there were no sky-scrapers, cars, pollutions,
materialism, etc. It made me think how easy it is for us to take urbanism for
granted, for the way it is and has always been. Point:
Take things back,
de-volve in time to simpler and simpler realities. Or
minus cars, minus exploiters, protective forces, drugs, churches, marriages,
etc. The further back we go, the simpler the ways of living and social arrangements
were. Simple questions come to surface, like: If Iroquois didnt have Pentagon,
Executive Branch, CocaCola, CIA, Cop Joe Pig
then how did they (Iroquois)
manage their affairs?
Come to find out
that these so-called "savages" had some pretty simple, effective,
direct ways of governing themselves and of living off the natural resources
of the land ("Turtle Island"). These so-called savages were actually
kinda peace loving and democratic in a way Babylon aint never been. Yet, in
terms of written ideals, those White AngloSaxonProtestant "founding fathers"
stole a lot of their ideas for their wonderful Declarations and Constitutions
and Bills from these very human beings they labeled "savages."
Next, I read this
book, "When God Was A Women." Its title was outrageous to begin with;
not even worthy of serious inquiry. But I was in a situation where I had the
time and the "outrageous" caught my attention, like seeing a porno
magazine for the first time when nobody else was around. Again, I had always
taken it for granted that this was a "Mans World," that "God"
was a man (by verbal and painted word-pictures) and that Man was Supreme and
His top position in society verified it. OR DOES IT? Was it possibly that such
ideas and beliefs and practices just being continually REINFORCED by sexist,
male-constructed culture made it seem to be common-sense, TRUE? Hmm?
To have a well-researched
book challenge age-old ideas and beliefs that I had held about God as this book
did, was to QUESTION MY OWN SANITY. God a Woman?
Is somebody looking
at me? God as a His-storical idea/belief is definitely a SHORT story
in the overall Story. Possibly 5,000 to 10,000 years old. Compared to, what,
hundreds of thousands and possibly a million years of human communities. Found
deep within the earth of a East Afrikan basin, what could Lucy "the Afrikan"
ancestor tell us now about our Beginnings. What might she startle us with?
Bible, Quran, Torah
are definitely creation stories. But now, here were the summarized findings
of many researchers, or searchers, period, whos collective evidence pointed
to societies, communes way, way older than Adam & Eve, and the One God stories
we in the West have been spoon-fed. Their living arrangements have been labeled
matriarchy, matrifocal, Mother-Right, etc. The available evidence points to
simplicity and DIFFERENCE in creation stories, in governing and in living off
the natural resources of the land. The available evidence also points to little
or no violence, rape, rich/poor dichotomies, no pigs enforcing shit; no religious
and philosophical rationalizations for accepting ones constructed or contrived
powerlessness, ones need for muthafuckas called authorities to lead you,
or ones need to restrict the dynamic feel-good of pussy/dick/body/spirit
Even today, wed
even feel crazy or a bit uncomfortable to shit or piss in the open or in an
Out-house in the country. So uptight. Were still uneasy about admitting
that we masturbate. Lord knows whats going through our minds when we see
same-sex kiss and hug. Arab men do it in greeting. Gay and lesbian people do
it in greeting and may do it also in passion. Parents of newborns just do it
simply in the spell of JOY, greeting and passion. WHAT!!! Simple things. Sit
quietly on a Harlem bench and watch the sunrise and feeling at one with the
Cosmos. Crazy mutha
Point: what happened
when society grew so large, so complex, brutal and disorienting that we found
ourselves LOST? Or: what happened BEFORE all this shit happened? How might we
have experienced Life before "Civilization." This is where my mind
was leading me, provoking me to not only investigate and explore, but to be
God? Lemme understand how and why some of these specific ideas about God came about and for whose benefit did it become canonized, organized, and institutionalized? Thats why it is so good that people debate religion versus spirituality today.
Civilization? What the fuck is so great about it when it has us on the brink of a total planetary pigocracy that is just destroying humanity. Whose idea was "civilization" and for whose benefit?
So, I had already
accepted a new value in my life as being questioning, daring to question, humble
and revolutionary enough to stand up for whatever my new findings, conclusions
laid in my lap. Its not an easy process. Its rough. Were all
so thoroughly conditioned to purfumed bullshit, to shit that keeps us locked
into, glued to the very Monster that is devouring us.
In the same vein,
entrenched in the Nationalist, Marxist-Leninist and Maoist teachings, I had
accepted their identification of The Enemy, the Opposition (Trotsky & the
anarchists put in with the kapitalists) without even fully understanding WHY.
In other words, why the hell didnt I check "the Other" side
of the story? I had never even availed myself to other Black revolutionary thinkers
like CLR James, James and Grace Lee Boggs, Adolph Reed, Pat Robinson, Lucius
Outlaw, James Cone, Audrey Lorde and the Combahee River Collective, the black
critical theorists, the black existentialists, the black surrealists. Or even
"the Other" European thinkers like Prince Kropotkin, Simone Beavoir,
Sartre, the Situationists, Rosa Luxemburg, Paul Goodman, Antonio Gramsci, Malatesta,
Regis Debray, Herbert Marcuse, etc.
method had helped me tremendously in being personally analytical and critical
in my thinking and viewing things. I am forever grateful to that skool to this
day. But, I wouldnt have put Marx and company and their ideas and prognosis
under the same critical, scientific (my best) microscope. (The Panther Party
DID, in fact, pull my coat to Mister Marxs racism, which told me that
he wasnt no perfect mutha
) It had to happen with the interaction
and urging of others of my comrades who had already made a similar journey as
my own. And it wasnt but two or three! So, when first exposed to anarchist
literature, I rejected it with a biased boot, a fascistic boot. At some point,
with the help of conversation and suggestions of humility, I relaxed a bit and
read some of their shit, as I had read Islamic literature when trying to understand
Muslim comrades beliefs and arguments.
had joined with other revolutionary theoreticians like James Boggs ("Racism
and the Class Struggle"), in critiquing white kapitalist Babylon, and the
traitorous role of its "working klass and trade unions" towards Black
folks struggle for liberation and revolution within Babylon period. My own independent
studies, provoked by Panther Frankie Ziths who gave me my first anarchist reading,
verified that. Frankies hand-written notes on the sides of these readings
would always relate the lessons, for example, on the Maknovists
betrayal by the Russian communists, to our possible betrayal by white communists
and other privileged white activists. So, when I read my first anarchist tract
on "unions" and how their hierarchies consistently aligned themselves
with patriotic materialism and pig boss management, I concluded that anar-KISM
made some solid critiques. So, it cant be that bad. But key in the anarchist
critique was not so much Labors (our "natural ally") treachery
or incorporation into the System. It was Labors STRUCTURE and middle-klass
goals and capitalist aspirations. But structure & culture was key! For,
regardless of your rhetoric, even the most radical, if your structure and aspirations
are basically in line with your enemys, then whatever you produce will
be basically in line with your enemy. And being that Labor groups rhetoric
was materialism and amerikan blindness to the root causes of racism, what else
could it do BUT betray its alleged revolutionary potential and its allies
These little anarchist
pamphlets were easily available from info-shops in Detroit and Canada, and they
were getting to us in the prisons. I was no longer averse to reading and learning
from them. But I only saw them as making a lot of good and interesting critiques
of kapitalism and authoritarian opposition groups, like unions and vanguard
parties.. Actually, I was reading and learning a lot from the works of the Frankfort
skool of psychology (E. Fromm, Marcuse, W. Reich, etc.) and feminist literature
("The Black Woman" edited by Toni Cade Bambara, Third World Women's
Alliance, Sheila Rowbotham, interviews with women of the national liberation
movements, Michelle Wallace's "Black Macho
", Merlin Stone's
"When God Was A Woman," Angela Davis, etc.).
eventually led me back to reading and re-reading anarchist works as a serious
study of its frame of references, its principles, its style, and its
contemporary relevance. This was all basically prison-time, thinking time, reflecting
time. Rebel philosophy in prison is that you be pro-active when dealing with
"KAPtured Time." Dont let time do you you DO time. DO,
as an active, aggressive, defiant verb. And as a POW I most certainly did. As
POW Sundiata Acoli had said from the beginning of his kaptured-time: "Turn
prison into your university." I read till my eyes hurt!
Just a quick cruise
through some of these major influences. Number one were Huey Newton and Eldridge
Cleavers intellectual daringness and radical application of the Marxist
dialectical method of thinking within the context of a highly technological
and racist Babylonian empire; the "organic" or public intellectual-activists
like James and Grace Lee Boggs, the Black and Asian revolutionary couple out
of the Detroit auto plantation. They kept me ground in the larger meaning and
power of Black Revolution. The book, "Racism and the Class Struggle"
was required reading when I came into the New Jersey/New York Black Panther
Party. They both described themselves as dialectical humanist, and in comparison
with nationalists, marxists, leninists, trotskyists and maoists, I think theyd
be considered "anti-authoritarian" because organizing was about raising
the grade of the revolutionary in terms of personal responsibility in creating
more democratically advanced, liberatory human and social relationships in governing.
Their thing was
in creating ways to challenge people to take responsibility for their own lives
and their own communities, from their personal relationships with their loved
ones to neighborhood, national and world issues.
The Frankfort skool
of psychology developed out of the Freudian skool. They dug many key limitations
with Freud for various reasons. And they tended to be socialist, or socialistic
and sometimes movement involved. They also tended to be critical of the State
Forms of Official Socialism that had developed in the Soviet Union and other
European nations. Erich Fromms works were the first to impact on me, my
thinking. "The Art of Loving" was my first socialist-humanist break-down
of love psychologically, romantically, socially and politically. I began to
really understand the importance of Love as a power for healing and sustaining
revolutionary struggle for the long-haul. "Escape From Freedom" awakened
me to understandings of freedom that I had never grasped in terms of its psychological
dimensions. Like, why were people AFRAID of freedom, how did this AUTHORITARIAN
MENTALITY he talked about come into being and operate? Fromm also wrote about
"socialized technology," or how to humanize technology in the interest
of PEOPLE, not profits ("Revolution of Hope").
and Victor Frankel also dealt with this authoritarian FASCIST mentality. What
made their insights particularly powerful for me were their actual experiences
under Nazi Europe and in Koncentration Kamps. Here were victims of that holocaust
who defied submission and lived to pass their psychoanalytic insights on to
generations to come. Immediately experienced BY ME were parallels between their
predicaments and ours (Black folks and Native folks), here. Psychology, hmm
Of all the break-away
students of Freud, Wilhelm Reich captured my attention the most. He was radical
in analysis and in practice. He was involved in the Revolutionary Movement in
Europe deeply. And his commitment to fact-finding and total liberation of humanity
was extreme, so much so that the leading revolutionary organization (he was
a member!) expelled him for developing new forms of struggle based on his concepts
of revolutionary sexuality (critique of bourgeois morality and oppressive upbringing
even within activists) and anti-fascist character-analysis (confronting the
internalization of kapitalist, authoritarian culture EVEN within the revolutionary
ranks). Having been run out of Germany by the Nazis, and kicked out of the "hung-up
on bourgie morality" authoritarian revolutionary party and Freuds
Psychoanalytic Society, Reich eventually made his way to Babylon, USA. (Thats
a whole notha story, so dont ask me why?) Essential here is that he continued
his search for deeper scientific insights into the character-structural fear
of freedom (deeper than Fromm) and the "essence" of Life, of living
and free human biological functioning leading to him developing the anarchistic
concept of "Work-Democracy," and what I might call "anti-authoritarian
socialist revolution. I was following that and learning so much about people,
personalities and roles as more than merely lip-service important. They held
a certain "key" to understanding frustrations in our revolutionary
in short was one of the most revolutionary concepts that I had come to understand.
Borne in the midst of European fascism, Reich developed an anarchistic concept
without even knowing it. Here he raised some very key things that could, on
the one hand, begin to destroy the roots of fascism in the oppressed character-structure
of the "mass individual," and on the other, provide guidance on destroying
the social plague" of authoritarian, fascist order in general.
If George Orwells
"1984" laid out that dreaded prognosis, then Reich offered us at least
one way to un-ancor that shit out of our very souls. It didnt matter whether
this fascism was emanating from kapitalist metropoles of imperialism or socialist/communist
metropoles of imperialism. Work-democracy based itself in the commitment to
fact-finding, knowledge or information, through the honest work of scientific
pursuit. Reich had this idea of the "human essence" which was basically
expressed in his words, "Love, work and knowledge are the wellsprings of
life. They should also govern it." He felt that that was the only purpose
behind the honest pursuit of understanding life, especially if one wanted to
change life. Reich felt that this search for practical, love-oriented knowledge
was primary, that not even party or ideological loyalty could stop it or should
interfere with the process and/or results being used to further the revolution
of life. He said that the revolutionary basis of work-democracy was in the free,
living functioning of the human organism which was oriented to pleasure in the
biological sense and to the joy of life and life exploration in the social sense.
Everyday Culture & Politics were frustrating that.
In his political experience, Reich found that the most revolutionary organization which did not challenge its cultural upbringing, which did not concern itself with helping people devise programs that addressed their everyday social and sexual misery and "existential angst" (my input), as it related to their struggles for self-determination, THEN they would help perpetuate the very society they were intellectually trying to destroy. Reich was just as concerned with why the revolutionary was reproducing the same authoritarian, life-negating society oppressing them within their own ranks. And he was on to something very basic to life with this attention he put on sexuality, the body and ones ability or inability to make revolution as desire, desirable and pleasure-oriented. It was like, if you cant shake from the hip and let-cha backbone slip, yo stiff ass cant hardly make no revolution that will jingle and tingle with a life-affirming child-like social-ism. Rosa Luxemburg said it, in a twist-around of the Parliament of Funkadelic:
Ass & Yo' Mind Will Follow.
Again, Reichs concern was character-structure caught up in the web of superstructure and political structure and economic structure. So, his concern was the concrete, immediate individual and his/her circumstances.
BACK TO BROTHA
The Frankfort Skool,
again, this strong psychological take on oppression and liberation/revolution,
led me back to that very book Eldridge Cleaver called the Black Bible for the
Revolutionary, "Wretched of the Earth." Fanon. Fanon. Fanon.
Read it again,
for what, the THIRD time? But why did it seem like the first time? Because my
understandings and analyses of things (things!) were evolving. Each time I re-read
the works of Fanon I was grasping more, and for more. Psychological terms were
clearer now. Symbolic cultural terms made more sense now (like the "veil").
Okay, "On Violence" yeah, I got it. Strike my oppressor and
a brick from the wall of fear gets dislodged. I feel better, empowered, etc.
But now the chapter on "Colonial & Mental Disorders" comes to
life! Not just mere warnings against uncritical nationalist trappings (read:
european influenced ideas of Nation, Government, Flag, Representative Democracy,
But now a deeper
look at what colonialism has done to us from a psychological perspective. Look
at what we have internalized. Look at how we have hidden/covered over our own
pain, our own wounds, and come to think of it, our own joys & possibilities
for enjoying lifes many emanations. The makings of a NIGGER. Not only
european values and ways of thinking, but also the initial traumas that ingrained
within us a fear of "them" symbolically, and thus a fear of striking
out for freedom. Fear of freedom
Erich Fromm, Reich, Frankel, Marcuse,
Malcolm X, Greir & Cobbs, etc. Awareness, tie-ins are muthafuckas.
life over and over again has come to be a very necessary practice for a revolutionary
dedicated to living revolution to its fullest. You read, you learn; you experience,
you learn; you reflect on it all, you learn and hopefully grow or move beyond
where youd just arrived. The analysis of my Panther experience has evolved
as my revolutionary concepts has evolved and as I have been exposed to new conceptual
ways of viewing and analyzing the world. And the contexts have changed, so threw
that in for yet more impermanence of both realities and concepts, period.
There is no one
All-Embracing, All-Encompassing concept to contextualize experience: ones
own or ones world. Like a light shining through a prism, its important
to reflect on experience and analyze it from as many different angles as possible.
Or at the least be open to more than just one (which is like being stuck on
stupid). I was initially a nationalist a la Stokeley and H. Rap Brown.
The BPP jarred
and angled me towards revolutionary Nationalism, which was nationalism informed
by national liberation movement thinking cutting across Africa, Asia and Latin
Amerika, Marxism, Leninism, Maoism, Kim Il Sungs Juche. The Boggs reinforced
the creative use of the "dialectical method" and a radical Humanism;
Reichs character-analysis and work-democracy, and finally feminism, radical
post-modernism and anarchism. The last three jarred and allowed me to look at
any belief, concept, idea and practice AS TEMPORAL, DIALECTICAL IN HAVING A
BIRTH & DEATH AND IT ALL BOTH USEFUL AND DISCARDABLE. Flesh out their hidden
and not-so-hidden sexisms, authoritarianism, racisms, eurocentrisms chauvinisms
and hierarchies. Therefore, it is not contradictory for me to say that Anarchism
is about opening doors to greater learning and doing, even if it means its own
death. That attitude was also a Panther attitude to knowledge and work which
even Maos red book reinforced.
Some key words
in the debate: The State, The "Masses," and The Revolutionaries
why do I see the differences.
I AM AN ANARCHIST
that "The State" is inherently oppressive as a
mechanism that cannot GIVE, GRANT, GUARANTEE OR PRESERVE Freedom, or make revolutionary
Without The State,
anarchy has existed in varying forms since the earliest human social formations,
because anarchists believe that people can govern their own lives, individually
and collectively, based on commonly worked out and agreed upon visions, interests,
mutual aid, non-hierarchical decision-making, codes of conduct, open collaborative
theories and plans for direct and democratic control of the means of livelihood,
and peoples power to bring about prosperity, peace, harmony, fun, adventure,
protection, nurturance and an atmosphere for spiritually wholistic well-being
without adherence to private property, money, god, race supremacy, able-bodied
supremacy, age-ism, imperialism, etc. Belief that organization and structure
of any activity must be consistent and identical to that which would characterize
the general picture of the new, free society (-ties) envisioned.("prefigurative"
as Cindy Milstein would say) These activities, anarchistic or communal inspired,
must be the DNA in every social, political, economic and military endeavor that
one or ones group takes on in the course of the revolution.
If The State, and
every institution within that Nation-State, is hierarchical, and uncritical
hierarchy of any kind perpetuates or aids the oppressive State, then I believe
it is a contradiction to the goals of a free society to adopt the same or similar
models of the Enemies of Freedom.
I believe that
"Vanguard Parties" are "The State in Embryo" and that historically
they have led to the betrayal of the very "Masses" they initially
championed. The only time that a vanguard party has not become The State is
when they have LOST the battle. This has been so because, in the absence of
a critique of culture, organization and the individual, they unconsciously (and
Not-So-Unconsciously, but very clearly) reproduce their internalized oppressions.
In this case, I specifically mean the reproduction of hierarchical relationships,
elitist assumptions about people and knowledge and traditions within initially
or potentially revolutionary formations and individuals. In this sense, The
State is EVERYWHERE
damn-near. But so are FREE ACTIVITIES, and in many
cases both exist in crazy and conflicting ways, side by side within people,
communities, organizations and personalities. Real people, real mutha
authoritarians in general see People as a "Mass Body" and believes
that the "masses need an organization of professional revolutionaries
to both educate and lead them.
The "masses need the "science" and the "plan"; they need their consciousness RAISED. The professionals have both the "science" and the ways and means to consciousness-raising and revolution-making. Thus, the masses" have to be MOVED; they are DEAD, IGNORANT until The Enlightened Ones give them the breath of life and the light of knowledge. The Liberation or The Revolution will be achieved through the
INTELLIGENCIA FOR THE PERPETUATION OF EMPTY REVOLUTIONS
themselves the "Representatives of the Masses." The "masses"
are seen as in a state of inertia UNTIL activated by the professionals.
People as individuals with the will to live, learn, love, work out their own
individual and collective destinies instinctively or spontaneously. Human dignity
is key. The People are their own liberators, foh-real. Anarchists also believe
that the "masses" (oh, I hate that term!) are not only their own liberators
but that they can discover their own ways to Revolution, organization and self-determination
(the "science") spontaneously or organically. In fact they/we are
always resisting, fighting back in many hidden and not so hidden ways. This
means that the same way these "professionals" came to consciousness
is open to and possible for ALL. * And there is never only ONE way to consciousness.
So, as long as those who know SHARE (mutual aid, network) and coordinate their
visions and plans, then there be no need for the professional or vanguard as
AUTHORITY, and any power won would remain grounded with those actually fought
for and secured it.
see themselves as "vanguards", leaders. As such, their "job"
is to be in the forefront
leading. Leading whom? The Masses. They uncritically
accept the common-sense/place/given that the "masses" are ignorant,
stagnant, afraid to move. Therefore, they must BE MOVED, EDUCATED, ORGANIZED.
And as possessors of that SPECIAL BODY OF KNOWLEDGE called SCIENCE, REVELATION,
DIVINE WISDOM or the DIALECTICAL and HISTORICAL METHODS of THINKING, it is clear
that ONLY they can give the "masses" what they need (even if they
dont want it!). Like children, you must lead the "masses" to
power through the leadership of the Vanguard or The One who is convinced of
its correctness or correct political line on success. They therefore promote
correct-line thinking, ideological loyalty, chain-of-command, conquest of political
power, class unity, class struggle, race nationalist unity, proper relationships,
objectivity in analyzing REALITY, acting on self-proclaimed representations
of the "masses" and you ALONE being able to clearly interpret their
needs and desires for change.
themselves as part of the "masses" or (with more dignity and individuality)
The People. Thus, their "job is to recognize their equal identity with
the People as capable of theory and practice, consciousness, self-acting, self-determining.
On the anarchist main tenets of MUTUAL AID AND COLLECTVE COORDINATION OF STRATEGIES
AND ACTIVITIES, you share what youve got (knowledges, weapons, expertise,
resources of all kinds) to get what you want. This way People at all levels
of consciousness and expertise have the opportunity to mix and grow, learn and
become empowered Revolutionaries within Mutual Aid formations. "Correct
Lines" can now reflect true multi-level, multi-faceted, multi-experiential
& experimental contributions of all, rather than the elitist "I KNOW
WHATS BEST FOR YOU." Anarchists therefore promote Participatory Democracy,
Direct Democracy, consensus decision-making, non-hierarchical lifestyles, feminist
praxis, organic intellectual daringness, creativity in action, art, carnival
pleasure, as well as an ecological connectedness to All and permanent revolution.
differ from Nationalists and M-Ls and most all Black community religionists
(Christianity, Nation of Islam, Afrikan Islamic and orthodox groups, etc.) in
that, with anarchists in general, we REJECT the need for a STATE in toto. The
State is inherently "evil" and always leads to corruption, power mongering
and oppression of some for the benefit of others.
religionists offer NO thorough critique of The State, its history, its historical
"necessity," its contradiction to the very concept and practice of
freedom. They may criticize the neo-colonial State, the racist State, the welfare
State, the police State, but that is a matter of reforming its behavior and/or
replacing these aspects of oppressor States with a "black" State,
a "black socialist workers" State, or a "United States of Afrika".
a similar critique. They will even admit that The State is inherently "evil"
and oppressive, but they argue that it is a "necessary evil" for the
successful transition from defeating kapitalism to constructing socialism in
combating counter-revolutionaries and other plotting, hidden pigs bent on re-kapturing
power and restoring things back to The Good Ole Days.
Phuck That! All Power to the People. Through the People. No gimmicks, no
fancy public relations. Either you respect peoples capacities to think
for themselves, to govern themselves, to creatively devise their own best ways
to make decisions, to be accountable, to relate, problem-solve, break-down isolation
and commune in a thousand different ways
OR: you dis-respect them. You
dis-respect ALL of us.
I dont wanna
give the impression that even ALL BLACK ANARCHISTS agree on everything. We are
as diverse as anybody else. But what we do agree on is TRUE self-determination
of the people, respect for the individual involved, REAL RESPECT. We place a
high value on collectivity and communalism and other ways of living and fighting
to end these many forms of oppression as "pre-figure (-actions)"
of the kind of society we want to bring into existence.
This writing will
give you an idea of what led me to becoming an anarchist. I want to share these
thoughts with you as Anarchist Panther continues to come out and in speaking
out when I can. I want a black anarchist "take" on things to be more
in The Mix in our community of communities that are facing genocide. No longer
should the prevalent nationalist, progressive and revolutionary ideologies and
organizational approaches hold unopposed court when the rhetoric always says
its about THE PEOPLE. If its truly about "The People" then let it
be, and let us together find the ways to make that happen so that WE...WE...WE...can
win and be free.
ALL POWER THRU THE PEOPLE!
