The Rastafari Movement and the London Reparations March - August 2014 [1 Attachment]

Greetings PASCF and Rastafari,



Thank you for your e-mail, and congratulations for your Collective's
success in bringing together concerned people, via the London Reparations
March, to the Seat of British Government. And, thanks, too, to the Rastafari
Movement, friends and allies, for reaffirming our Afrikan call for
Reparations Now!

It is inconceivable that in the 21st Century, with the existence of a
global culture of paying reparations to people wronged by others, the
Afrikan people are made exceptions to this rule, and so finding it necessary
to march for our reparations. Even when the wrongs for which we demand
redress, the Institution of Chattel Slavery built on our Afrikan backs,
perpetrated and perpetuated over many centuries against us, and made
generations of profits and great wealth for individuals, companies and
nations. The institution of Chattel slavery tantamount to the most horrific,
lasting and consistent mass destructions in volume of a people ever in world
history.

These horrific acts against the 'African Black savages', enhanced and
perfected by a people who claimed to be the guardian and practitioners of
renaissance high arts and cultures, pious theologies and accountable to a
merciful Deity, leaders of civilised behaviours, liberal democracy and the
makers and up-holders of the rule of law. And yet none of these high
principles and practises then and now was and is adequate to persuade them
and their current posterity, as individuals, institutions and nations, to
recognise the importance, moral imperative and necessity to beg forgiveness
and offer proper and commensurate reparations to the Afrikan people. Those
at home and those abroad, who suffered and still bearing the consequences of
their ancestors' trauma over the many centuries of barbarity perpetrated
against them.

The refusal by those who are still benefiting, by heritage and otherwise,
from Afrikans, the innocents, sufferings, and who are claiming to be
civilised and leaders of civilised values, the obvious question is, "what
are civilised values today?"

Respect Rastafari and to those who stood shoulder to shoulder with you, on
the streets of London, the historical Imperial Capital, whose Parliament
endorsed chattel slavery. To its redemption, encouraged by the British
Judiciary, Lord Mansfield's Somerset v Stewart (1772) judgement and the
various people of good-will, campaigning for change under the broad
anti-slavery banner, Parliament's historic decisions in 1807 and 1833,
outlawed and abolished slavery. Those were great and redeeming acts by the
British Parliament. That Great and Noble Institution needs to take the next
logical step and legislate for the payment of reparations to Afrikans who
are demanding their rights. A Big Debt is still outstanding.

PASCF Statement on Reparations Owed

Following the historic London Reparations March from Brixton to 10 Downing
Street organised by the Rastafari Movement in Britain on 1st August 2014,
the PASCF issues the following statement – they all owe us:

The Capitalists, the Working Class and the Trade Union Movement all owe

Reparations to Afrikan People

The enslavement of Afrikan people created unprecedented levels of wealth
for the imperialists who controlled the slavery system. As part of their
agenda of stealing other peoples' wealth they managed to usurp Afrikan
people's labour without having to pay. The imperialists then used the
massive quantities of wealth that they accumulated from slavery as capital
to invest. These investments were the cause of many new beginnings
including: a proliferation in the development of technological inventions in
Europe; the creation of factories in Europe; the development of mass
production in Europe; the development of industrialisation in Europe; the
birth of capitalism as a social, political and economic system; the birth of
the capitalist phase of world history; and the birth of modern racism.

These changes also meant that the newly created mass producing factories of
Europe needed labour in order to operate effectively. This new need was
hindered by the fact that the labour of European peasants was tied to the
land in a form of bondage called serfdom. The requirements imposed by the
newly emerging capitalist system meant that the European peasants had to be
released from serfdom by their Lords and Masters. Their release was one of
the essential ingredients that brought capitalism into existence. It was the
release of European peasants from serfdom that gave birth to the European
working class (i.e. proletariat). The European working class was created by
the new capitalist elite for its own diabolical purposes. The European
working class was also born out of the terrible suffering of enslaved
Afrikan people.

The European working class was created precisely so that the capitalists
could exploit them as a means of making profits. In order to resist this
exploitation the working class was forced to organise for self defence.
Trade unions are the result of the European working class' organised
struggle against capitalism - the same capitalist system that was created by
and profited from anti-Afrikan slavery.

Trade Unions which were the European working class' legitimate response to
capitalist exploitation have at their root the terrible suffering of
enslaved Afrikan people. The outcome of this process is that European
working class suffer capitalist oppression on the basis of class; Afrikan
people suffer double oppression – class and race; and Afrikan women suffer
triple oppression – class, race and gender.

In short, if there was no slavery there would be no capitalism. If there
was no capitalism there would be no working class. If there was no working
class there would be no Trade Union Movement. Capitalism, the working class
and Trade Unions all owe their existence to the enslavement of Afrikan
people. They are all indebted to and owe reparations to Afrikan people,
from whose genocidal scale suffering (i.e. exploitation and oppression) they
arose.

Dark Girls - Rise, Women, Rise: colorism based on skin tone among African Americans

Internalized Racism In The Black Community

Posted on

Dark Girls is a 2012 documentary film by American filmmakers Bill Duke and D. Channsin Berry. It documents colorism based on skin tone among African Americans, a subject still considered taboo by many black Americans. The film contains interviews with notable African Americans including Viola Davis. It also reports on a new version of the 1940s black doll experiment by Kenneth and Mamie Clark, which proved that black children had internalized racism by having children select a white or a black doll (they typically chose white) based on questions asked. In the updated version, black children favored light-skinned dolls over dark-skinned dolls. Dark Girls explores the many struggles, including self-esteem issues, which women of darker skin face allowing women of all ages recount "the damage done to their self-esteem and their constant feeling of being devalued and disregarded."
Duke and Berry even take it a step farther and interview African American men who claim they could not date a woman of dark skin. One young man interviewed saying "They [dark girls] look funny beside me. The documentary takes a look into the trend of black women all over the world investing in the multibillion dollar business of skin bleaching creams. Duke and Berry also examine how black women are trying to look more Caucasian while white women are trying to look more ethnic. "White women are risking skin cancer and tanning booths twice a week, Botoxing their lips, getting butt lifts to look more ethnic and crinkling up their hair." The film was shown to a sell-out crowd at the Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles, April 2012. Interviewed on NPR, Duke recounted an reaction he received at another showing, which indicated that colorism is not easily discussed and was asked by someone, 'Why are you airing our dirty laundry?' His answer was, "Because it's stinkin' up the house!"

Cowardly, Hypocritical, Subservient Congressional Black Caucus Endorses Israeli Apartheid and Current War Crimes in Gaza

 

 

by BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon

 

Only 2 of over 40 Congressional Black Caucus members voted against legitimizing the 2009 Israeli massacre of 1400 mostly civilians in Gaza, with seven CBC members abstaining. Last week, with the Gaza death toll climbing toward 1,000 not a single CBC member could be bothered to lift a voice against Israel's genocidal assault of the moment or its ongoing apartheid state in general. Black America should hang our collective heads in shame.

Obama Summons Africa to Washington to Talk Trade (and How to Cut Out China)

 

 

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

 

All of Africa's leaders "in good standing" with the U.S. will gather in Washington, this weekend. On the continent, AFRICOM is boss, with a mission "to stymie, at will, the integration of Africa into a multi-polar world in which China is the center of gravity." China's trade with Africa far exceeds the U.S. However, "just as the Americans strong-armed the Europeans into sanctioning Russia, the U.S. will soon flex its AFRICOM muscles against China."

Freedom Rider: The Causes of World War III

 

 

by BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley

 

The world is being enveloped by chaos, dragged towards an apocalypse of unknown proportions by its sole superpower. "The absence of a competing power only emboldened the United States to renew its long history of intervention, invasion and aggression." Washington is huffing and puffing a grotesque ultimatum to the planet: submit, or we will bring down all of humanity's houses.

Black Is Back Coalition Holds National Conference in Philadelphia

 

 
A Black Agenda Radio commentary by executive editor Glen Ford
The Black is Back Coalition came together in 2009, "determined that the first politician in history to spend a billion dollars to win the presidency would not get a free pass fromall of Black America." The Coalition's upcoming national conference will map strategies to confront Power in the waning days of the Age of Obama, and beyond.

 

 

From Victim to Colonial Settler: Shifting the Paradigm on Israel

 

 

by BAR editor and columnist Ajamu Baraka

 

U.S. and western European popular support for Israeli aggression against Arabs is rooted in racist, colonial notions of "'white man's burden,' 'manifest destiny,' the 'doctrine of discovery,' and 'American exceptionalism' – expressions of the arrogant pathology of the white supremacist worldview." It is imperative to undermine the "innocent settler" narrative "that justifies Israeli state and settler violence."

Defense Says Crime Scene Botched at Wafer Trial

 

 

Photographs, Evidence Collection Occurred days after Crime

by Thandisizwe Chimurenga

 

Afternoon testimony in the trial of Ted Wafer for the death of Renisha McBride on July 24th revealed less than stellar evidence collection techniques, suggesting the Dearborn Heights Police Department may have botched the case.  The prosecution called to the stand some of the officers who first responded within minutes to Wafer's home on Outer Drive, as well as a crime scene investigator, to paint a picture of what occurred in the moments, hours and days after the 55-year old airport maintenance worker shot the 19-year old McBride in the face with a shotgun.

 Truth and Politics as an Alternative to Despair in the Last Stage of US imperialism

 

 

by Danny Haiphong

 

"Both the corporate ruling class on one side and much of the proclaimed 'left' on the other are caught up in fact-manipulation." For differing reasons, neither tells the truth about Zionism's mission to create a 'Greater Israel'; of U.S. and Israeli support for jihadists such ISIS – which claimed credit for killing the three teenage Jewish settlers; or U.S. schemes to contain China and foment war against Russia.

US Foreign Policy –Wrong Side of History, Wrong Side of World Opinion

 

 

by Dr. Wilmer J. Leon, III

 

President Obama has turned his back on his 2009 promises to the Palestinian people, and instead ratcheted up support for Israeli wars, bigotry and racism. "The NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus, and other organizations should be front-and-center in condemning the Israeli government's actions and the Obama administration's support and encouragement of them."

Connecting the Dots: Palestine, Israel, the United States and Apartheid

 

 

by Solomon Comissiong

 

Black and genuinely progressive Americans should be in righteous motion against Israel's murderous attack on Gaza. "If you were against Apartheid in places like South Africa or Zimbabwe, then you must stand against Apartheid in Israel/Palestine." But then, the United States, like Israel, " is ultimately a white settler nation."

Running Orders

World Opinion Turns Against Israel – But Not in Congressional Black Caucus

 

Israelis "can no longer frame themselves as the victims" in the conflict with occupied Palestinians, said veteran human rights activist and BAR columnist Ajamu Baraka. However, "it now appears that Black leadership has lost its moral compass and are standing shoulder to shoulder with something as brutal and backward as the assault on Palestine," said Baraka. Every member of the Congressional Black Caucus this month joined in a unanimous House resolution siding with Israel.

U.S. Academics Largely Silent on Israeli Crimes

 

American academics are largely mum on Israeli brutality in Gaza, said Dr. Johnny Williams, professor of sociology at Trinity College, in Hartford, Connecticut. "They are scared to talk about the kinds of war crimes that are being committed with this unprovoked war by Israel," he said. Except for Cornel West, Noam Chomsky "and a few others," academics are "essentially folks who tell the stories of rich people and the people who have power."

Kucinich: America Must Quit "Imperial Pretensions"

 

The U.S. is on the wrong side of history, said Dennis Kucinich, the former Ohio congressman, Cleveland mayor, and two-time presidential candidate. "Our policies of intervention, of regime change, of covert action, of linking up with groups that seek to destabilize and annihilate governments, are policies that are doomed to defeat," said Kucinich, who fought unsuccessfully to halt U.S. bombing of Libya in 2011, before he was redistricted out of his seat. "We have to quit these imperial pretensions and take care of business at home."

NYPD Reform Impossible Under Bratton

 

The choke-hold death of a Black New Yorker accused of selling loose cigarettes shows that Mayor Bill de Blasio should never have brought Bill Bratton back as police commissioner, said Josmar Trujillo, of New Yorkers Against Bratton. The group had warned that Bratton's obsession with so-called "quality of life" offenses would lead to disaster. "Back then, we said that his history and his policies were the exact opposite of reform," said Trujillo. "I think now people are starting to have the conversation, after the death of Eric Garner, about what's going on with Bratton's 'Broken Windows' policing."

Prisoners Have Voting Rights, Too

 

Back in 2008, Rev. Kenneth Glascow won a lawsuit affirming the right of many incarcerated people to vote, in Alabama. Glascow and his Ordinary People Society have been making the rounds of county jails, to determine if they are in compliance with the law. "Anybody who is in jail in Alabama for a crime that is not a crime of moral turpitude – meaning, they caused harm or danger to someone else – never loses their voting rights," said Glascow, who is the half-brother of Rev. Al Sharpton.

Renisha McBride "Just Wanted to Go Home"

 

 
Witnesses Describe the 19-year old as staggering, "out of it" after car crash

ted wafter on trial
Day two of Ted Wafer's trial in the death of Renisha McBride began with a picture of a "disoriented" and possibly injured McBride walking away from the scene of a car accident at least three times.
Witnesses testified that the 19-year old crashed her white Ford Taurus into a parked car in the area of Brammel and Majestic, not far from Warren, around 1 a.m on Nov. 2, 2013.
