Watch the Police, Pow Pow

Public reaction to recent revelations at the Government Information School (GIS) – Pressure Mounts on Minister Wilfred Abrahams to Resign – continues to be a source of concern for Barbadians. All eyes now are on Minister Wilfred Abrahams and his newly installed Board presided over by Apostle Dr, Lucille Baird. It is the hope of the blogmaster a priority task of the Baird led Board will be to meet with outgoing Board members and in particular the former deputy Chair Marsha Hinds-Layne. Many Barbadians are of the view- and rightly so- Hinds should have been retained on the new Board if its selection was meant to be resident centric. It would have added needed credibility to the process Minister Abrahams is attempting to sell the public.

Let me give you an example. The mother of this alleged case is now my patient and I don’t divulge any confidential information here; we would have spoken. If you have a child that’s missing, which happened in this case, we all know . . . she was picked up for wandering . . . .

She got information on where her daughter was when she went missing [and] called the police station: ‘Excuse me, sir, I think I know where my daughter is’. She [is told] hold on a minute.

Mr Speaker, I wish I could give you the words, but my mother never taught me to curse . . . . He put the phone on the side and said, ‘This **#!!* woman on the phone talking ’bout some !!**%%@#$%^ missing girl’.

She stressed that police officers must do better in such matters. You really have to investigate, apart from the school, complaints that reach the police stations and the response of the police officers. Too many people are dying.

MP knocks police response to report (Nation Newspaper)

A sub story from the GIS affair that should be receiving equal attention is the matter highlighted by Member of Parliament Sonia Browne in a contribution to the House of Assembly last week. Key duties of any police force is to maintain public order and safety, enforce the law among other responsibilities. We cannot have members of the public turning to the police for assistance and it evokes such an insensitive response. The success of a police force is dependent on cultivating a good relationship with the public it is paid by and sworn to serve. The blogmaster wants to give the benefit of the doubt to the Barbados Police Force in this case but it is a challenge given what we know.

In the same way Minister Wilfred Abrahams was forced to face the music to placate an angry public, Attorney General Dale Marshall should be made to explain the behaviour by the policeman who handled the call from the juvenile’s mother reported by MP Sonia Browne.

The blogmaster has posted several blogs about the dysfunctional, moribund Police Complaints Authority (PCA) since its establishment by exposing the failure to deliver on its mandate. Successive governments have been unable to remedy the situation.

A growing lack of trust by the public in the police force is likely driven by the inability of the Attorney General and the PCA to encourage and process public complaints in a transparent and efficient manner. We MUST hold the police force accountable given its important role as guardians of the state. Our approach to reforming the system must be holistic to achieve service quality. If we do not many young people will be consumed and enarmoured by thug life with citizens continuimg to cry – arm the police pow pow.

  • These types of civil rights freedom fighters were never welcomed in Barbados. I believe at one time if i remember correctly, Nina Simone was asked to leave the island because black colonial governments wanted no black conscious movement in African lives. They still don’t but this time unable to stop it without a backlash. They are on their own because UK will come out and say straight up that they never stopped them from allowing African consciousness to thrive in the survivors post independence, the same way they are loudly disowning any knowledge of racism now…lol…racism? what is that? lol.

    “Day 1: Spiritual Journeys

    An introduction explaining Ancestral Voices, its purpose and how it started, followed by personal spiritual journey stories from the directors. Dalian, born in Ghana in a strict Catholic home to exploring Islam and Buddhism. Verona raised in the UK to Jamaican parents in a Christian but not religious home. Atheist for several years until coming into ‘New Age’ spiritual teachings.

    Verona Spence-Adofo
    Verona’s background from Jamaican home and no obligations to attend church etc, travelled the new-age path and then got into African Spirituality.

    Dalian Adofo
    Dalian was raised in Ghana, in Catholic home. Connection with Spirit started after Grandma’s passing and has been evolving since. Has explored Islam, Buddhism then got deeper into African Spirituality.

    Ancestral Voices started as a result of a conversation between us after noticing African Spirituality was not included in mainstream or academic discussions about religion or spirituality and even when done, it was still negative. So intent was to combine our skills to document and re-address the colonial propaganda, working with the mantra from our esteemed ancestor Dr. John Henrik Clarke “take what you do best and do it for your people”

    “Why Kemet Matters
    Did you know that Afrikan/Black people invented Math, Science, Medicine, Architecture, History, Philosophy, Politics, Spirituality, Warfare and Combat Sciences, Agricultural Science, Astronomy, Culture, Cosmology, Literature, and other Arts?”

    It always surprises me how academics have perpetuated the myth that the African made zero contribution to the advancement of civilisation..

    Our “contribution” to civilisation has always been dismissed as primitive in nature. This tag has never been given to any other racial group. All groups irrespective of their origins have added something to the development of civilisation from its original African reservoir.

    The example you gave of the Ethiopian system of mathematics is proof that there is nothing genuinely new under the sun.

    The most “lauded’ period in the history of art was the introduction of the renaissance period. Several hundred years later, the period know as modern art or abstract art (20th century) would trump all the art periods that went before it.

    The modern art titans such as Picasso and Matisse drew, mostly, all of their creative inspiration from African sculptures. Do not expect art historians to reference the contribution of African civilisation to European art.

    Take the term ‘Rock and Roll” music. Elvis was the king of this musical form. But the term “Rock and Roll” was a bastard name. It had a name and it was called “Rhythm and Blues” and it evolved out of African-American culture.

    This story highlights how easy it is to whitewash out of existence the black contribution to civilisation.

    Your pal, Artax” suggested that certain contributors should be given their own platform such as the good doctor and his sadly missed Sweet Sunday Sermon. I agree with him in part. However, Barbados and our fellow Barbadians need to be fed with a continued diet of black historical achievement; and needs to reduce if not eliminate a biased and racist education system that places white values and achievements over that of our own.

  • TLSN…the savages will tell any number of lies about African achievements to discredit it while TIEFING IT….and grab all our wealth and resources birthright just for good measure, they have a track record…

    We even got a timeline….the incident did take place but the “details at the core” are being disputed…so i take it anyone with a food license can have an open air restaurant….should’nt be a problem.

    “Within recent hours, a social media post regarding an incident at Deacon’s Road on Good Friday has been gaining significant traction, even though the salacious details at its core are untrue.

    According to the post, on Good Friday, police ordered the closure of a “cookshop” that is operated by Ross Ashton on Deacons Road, but that Prime Minister Mia Mottley intervened by calling Deputy Commissioner of Police Oral Williams, who then instructed the officers to leave the operators of the establishment alone.

    While citizens, for whatever reason, are free to comment on and even criticize the words or actions of any other citizens, including the Prime Minister or any other member of the Government, they cannot create half-truths and lies and promote them as facts.

    And what are the facts?

    Sometime around noon on Good Friday police visited the food establishment operated by Ross Ashton, where residents from the district were taking advantage of a $25 lunch special. Between that first visit and 2 p.m. two other detachments of officers visited.
    Police told Ross Ashton he was operating the establishment in contravention of Emergency Management (COVID-19) Direction No. 7, and he was ordered to close immediately.
    Ross Ashton told police he was operating a legitimately licensed restaurant and the Emergency Order expressly allowed him to open and serve customers.
    The establishment was serving customers seated in the community park area outside the cookshop, as it had done consistently on holidays for more than two decades.
    Ross Ashton referred the police officers present to Section 7(1) of the directive, which states: “Notwithstanding anything contained in the Directive, food service establishments shall be permitted to open from Monday to Sunday, between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. … and (2) Owners or operators of restaurants catering to dine-in patrons shall maintain at least 6 feet of separation between table set-ups within restaurants.”
    Police, however, insisted that he had to close.

    At 2:01 p.m., Prime Minister Mottley received a call from Ross Ashton and Horace Bayley, enquiring whether or not under the current Directive the cookshop at Deacon’s Road was permitted to open and she answered in the affirmative. They then outlined the challenge they were having with the police.
    With the phone in “speaker mode”, Prime Minister Mottley asked the policeman whether patrons were seated in a manner that complied with physical distancing protocols and the policeman answer in the affirmative.
    Prime Minister Mottley then asked whether the patrons were wearing masks, and again the policeman answered in the affirmative.

    At this point Prime Minister then asked the policeman what was the concern that would require their insistence that the business be closed and there was no other concern expressed.
    The phone call was terminated at this point and the police left the area.
    At no time while police officers were on the scene, or after the incident, did Prime Minister Mottley call Deputy Commissioner of Police Oral Williams or Assistant Superintendent of Police Debra Thomas. At no time during or after the incident, did the Prime Minister have any conversation with either of them or any other officer of the Royal Barbados Police Force in connection with the incident, as alleged in the social media post.
    Daily since the restrictions were lifted, a number of restaurants across the island, including upscale establishments like La Cabane on Batts Rock Beach and the Animal Flower Cave Restaurant, in St Lucy, have been serving patrons in open-air facilities, a set-up that lessens the opportunity for the COVID-19 virus to spread. None of these has been asked by police to shut their operations.

    Get email updates with the day’s biggest stories
    On the Gambian river in January 1773, slaves on board the New Britannia ship were battling for their freedom.

    Children snatched from their African homeland had slipped tools to their shackled adult male counterparts who cut themselves free from their chains and stormed the vessel’s gun room.

    After an hour-long battle with the crew, it became clear the slaves were losing their fight.

    So in desperation they set fire to the ship’s gunpowder magazine, causing a massive explosion which killed all 222 captives and 13 slavers.

    The everyday violence, terror and degradation on the New Britannia and a future life of slavery in the Americas meant death was preferable to living.

    Tony Sewell – the chair of the government commission tasked with looking into racism in the UK

    Doreen Lawrence says Boris Johnson’s race report ‘gives the green light to racists’mirror

    Experts’ anger at being included in “odious” race report without their knowledge
    On Wednesday, a government report by the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities featured a controversial foreword by its chairman Tony Sewell.

    He said: “There is a new story about the Caribbean experience which speaks to the slave period not only being about profit and suffering but how culturally African people transformed themselves into a re-modelled African/Britain.” His remarks provoked a storm of criticism.

    Halima Begum, boss of race equality think-tank the Runnymede Trust, said: “I’m flabbergasted to see the slave trade apparently redefined as ‘the Caribbean Experience’, as though it’s something Thomas Cook should be selling – a one-way shackled cruise to purgatory.”

    Shadow Equalities minister Marsha de Cordova said the report “glorifies the slave trade” and urged the Government to disassociate itself from it.

    Dr Sewell, a former teacher who was put in charge of the Commission by Boris Johnson last year after the Black Lives Matter movement, hit back.

    He said: “The report merely says that, in the face of the inhumanity of slavery, African people preserved their humanity and culture.”

    Around 12 million Africans were kidnapped and forced into the Atlantic slave trade between the 16th and 19th century. Up to two million of them died on the hellish journeys to European colonies in the Americas.

    It was the largest forced migration in history. And Britain was at the centre.

    Slavery brought vast wealth to our ports – notably London, Liverpool and Bristol. Between 1662 and 1807, colonial ships transported about 3.4 million Africans, with 2.9 million surviving the Middle Passage to be sold into captivity.

    Only Portugal had a bigger Atlantic slave trade empire.”

    There was a triangular trade route. Ships set off for Africa from Europe laden with goods to be traded for slaves. After a perilous journey across the Atlantic, surviving captives were sold for raw materials which were transported back to Europe.

    “Last fall, a white Michigan man was arrested after he allegedly approached a group of three Black teenagers at a state park, spewed racial epithets and struck one of the teenagers in the face with a bike lock.

    According to the United States Department of Justice, Lee Mouat, 43, of Newport, pleaded guilty to a federal hate crime for attacking a Black teenager. He willfully caused bodily injury to a Black teenager because of the child’s race.

    “Hate-fueled incidents like this one have no place in a civilized society,” said Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Pamela Karlan for the Civil Rights Division in a written statement. “The Justice Department is committed to using all the tools in our law enforcement arsenal to prosecute violent acts motivated by hate.”

    Based on the plea agreement, Mouat approached a group of Black teenagers at a state park in Monroe. Mouat repeatedly used racial slurs and stated Black people had no right to use the public beach. Mouat then proceeded to strike one of the teens in the face with a bike lock, which resulted in knocking out several of the victim’s teeth, lacerating his face and mouth and fracturing his jaw. Mouat then made an attempt to hit another one of the Black teenagers with the bike lock.

    “Our office is committed to protecting the rights of all citizens, and prosecuting hate crimes is a top priority,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Saima Mohsin for the Eastern District of Michigan. “The young victim, in this case, suffered tremendously from this vicious, racially motivated assault. Every individual citizen has the right to not live in fear of violence or attack based on the color of their skin.”

    “Mouat’s hateful and violent conduct, motivated by racial intolerance, was intended to physically harm the victim as well as create fear within the African-American community,” said Special Agent in Charge Timothy Waters of the FBI’s Detroit Division. “The FBI and our law enforcement partners will continue to ensure that if a crime is motivated by bias, it will be investigated as a hate crime and the perpetrators will be held responsible for their actions. We encourage anyone who has been the victim of or witness to such a crime to report it to the FBI.”

    A hearing has been scheduled for June 24, 2021, where Mouat will be sentenced. He faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release, and a fine of up to $250,000.”

    By Keketso Motale- Sangoma (Healer & Diviner), iNyanga (Herbalist)

    We need more healers who will beautifully tell their stories and have embraced themselves that they never feel the need to change themselves in order to be what other healers require of them to be, instead of the healers the universe and ancestors has created, embraced and love.

    We need more healers who are light, love and grace, who treat their humanely wounds and flaws in a manner they are taught to treat those of others.

    We need more healers who are whole, grounded and so very human, healers who don’t walk around hoping to identify and find someone they deem inferior so they trample on in order to feel superior.

    We need more healers vested in their own healing, growth and evolution, healers who understand the flexible and ever-changing nature of their gifts and journeys.

    Healers who are not afraid of being students, who open themselves up to those they deem spiritually young in honor of their centuries-old ancestors.

    Healers ezange zakhulela amadlozi’azo (healers who never outgrew or became older than their ancestral guides).

    Healers who have stopped seeking external altars to bow and submit before because they realise they are an entire shrine, a place where their ancestors rest.

    Healers who understand that for every chapter of our journey there’s an assigned ancestor chosen and called to guide you through it.

    We need more healers who live from gratitude, abundance and peace so we don’t see everyone who walks through our doors as an opportunity to make money but as an opportunity to heal and grow…

    That generation of healers the ancestral councils have been waiting for: the renegades, anarchists and rebels those who are not afraid to challenge and fight the status quos, the norms and societal expectation of who we need to be.

    The healers who are not afraid to sing and dance to the sound of their heartbeats, their soul song, the healers who didn’t need to initiate to be healers but healers who just needed to be to connect to ancestral wisdom buried deep in our DNA and ancient memories.

    The healers who are not afraid to dream…healers who are not afraid to be inebriated by the ancient spirits and lose their inhibitions.

    More than anything we need to be the healers who are not afraid to be honest to ourselves about who we are.

    We need to be the healers we need when going through difficult and challenging times.

    No need to force anything, people have to start from scratch about info that was maliciously and deliberately hidden from Africans on the island, then criminalized so they’ll never find it..the platforms are available and all sources are easily found.

    “Dr. Frances Cress Welsing raises the question of the psycho-biological implications of melanin in the human body. She argues that melanin is a neurotransmitter, and, as such, has the ability to enhance human communication, development and functioning . She postulated that melanin is a “superior absorber of all energy” (p. 231), and suggests that it accounts for “soul” or connectedness. She related melanin to the “affirmation of life” in contrast with “evil” as the destruction of life (p. 233). Speaking directly and forcefully to her people, Dr. Welsing tells us that it is our role to confront and fight evil, and that to ignore evil is to participate in evil (p. 234). In her view, psychiatry needs to deal with the proliferation of “evil” in the world. Her analysis has spiritual implications. Her ideas demand the serious scientific study of melanin/melatonin (See T. Owens Moore, The Science of Melanin, 1995).

    Melanin is a subject conventionally avoided by the mainstream white supremacist-controlled scientific hierarchy. They always avoid the subject publicly, often studying it intensely in hard to find places (see: the Journal of Pineal Research). No one wants to talk about melanin. The findings might imply that there is indeed a special role played by “Blackness” in Afrikan human functioning, especially since the first humans were, indeed, hued and quite Black. Whiteness, on the other hand, is caused by the absence of proper melanin functioning in a way that supercedes the perfunctory role that it plays in the “albino mutant” body. Whiteness is caused by the absence of melanin, the absence of “hue”, resulting, as it did, from a mutated adaptation to the conditions of the ice age. (see Cheikh Anta Diop, The Cultural Unity of Black Africa, 1989; Civilization or Barbarism, 1981; The African Origin of Civilization, 1974 , and Vulindlela I. Wobogo, Cold Wind From the North, 2011).

    Dr. Welsing used her healing skills to address the “inferiorization of the Black child.” While there is a plethora of studies, articles and books addressing the poor and “negative” self-image of our children, almost none of them (with the exception of Bro. Amos Wilson) place this tragic circumstance in the context of the need to confront racism/white supremacy. Sister Frances was concerned with “enabling patients to neutralize the impact of white supremacy on their lives” (p.258). She told us that our “Black children can achieve a development of their Black genetic and constitutional potential second to none.” For Dr. Welsing the objective of healing and nurturing the potential of Black children is much more than getting better grades, or even admission into colleges, professional schools and “good jobs.”

    She was concerned that the Black child become a Black warrior, capable of “destroying destruction” (Ayi Kwei Armah, Two Thousand Seasons). This can only happen if their parents are mature enough and have the “space” to train, support and love them. It is because of her vigilant Afrikan warrior posture and commitment that for over four decades, she advised us to have fewer children, later in life. We have misunderstood her meaning. She was concerned with preparation for parenting, in order to prepare our children (our people) for war. She is not trying to show us how to be “successful” within the confines of the white supremacist “social” order. She was preparing us to confront it and to neutralize its power over us, which is the necessary prelude to war. This was her work. This was her intent.”

    “A Praise Song for Dr. Frances Cress Welsing, Our Race Champion

    In 1974, I experienced Dr. Frances Cress Welsing for the first time as she confronted William Shockley, the white supremacist, physicist, eugenicist, on Tony Brown’s Journal, a talk show on PBS. Watching Dr. Welsing shock Shockley as he, no doubt, had never been shocked before, was to have a lasting effect on me and many others, including Shockley himself. As I subsequently studied her and her work,”The Cress Theory of Color-Confrontation,” I came to realize that, “Confrontation” was, indeed, her forte, her strength, and her method of healing Afrikan people in preparation for war against those who would destroy us.

    Dr. Welsing turned Shockley’s world upside down. She challenged his perception of himself. She took the ground from beneath him, robbing him of the confidence he had taken for granted. As a white person, he functioned in a system that had been constructed to convince him of his “superiority” and the inferiority of Afrikan/Black people. But Dr. Welsing snatched the rug out from under him by questioning the very things that he assumed. She sat facing him, brilliantly countering his arguments, showing them to be inept. She calmly considered his words, before coolly demolishing his assertions.

    He had banked on the defensive posture which most of us took when told that our intelligence quotient was lower than that of white people. We sought so desperately to prove that we were “as smart as they.” We didn’t understand that we were thereby accepting the reality that they had imposed to prove the opposite. By defending ourselves within the context of their definition of reality, we had accepted it as true. We were allowing them to define the terms, putting them “in charge.” (We had not learned the most important axiom of cultural warfare; never let your enemy choose the game or make the rules. He will determine the rules to guarantee that he wins, even if you are the more skilled.)

    The idea of the quantitative measurement of human intelligence should be obviously absurd, its cogency a figment of the white imagination. Rather than “defend” against a bogus claim, Dr. Welsing explained why his delusional behavior was necessary. She confronted his propositions head-on and dismantled them. She “flipped the script” and made him the object. His genetic inadequacy became the focus. His rather disjointed and feeble “arguments” were simply manifestations of his fear of genetic annihilation.”

    But you have to admit that the European man has demonstrated a far ‘greater’ intellect over that of the ‘modern’ African man.

    How else do we explain the white man’s ability to convince an entire race of people that the god they ought to be worshipping is made in the white man’s own image?

    White are the black man and woman going to grow up and awake from their puerile dreams?

    Isn’t this the same brainwashing model used to depict their demi-god of a superhero in the form of Superman in the body of a white man?

    Isn’t the ‘white’ Superman, like baby Jesus, an alien ‘being’ sent to Earth to fight evil and to save humankind?

    Wasn’t the white ‘baby’ superman from Krypton- a planet a 1,000 light years away in some quadrant of the Milky Way- while the black man’s sweet baby Dedus who, just over 2,000 solar years ago, was sent to the same Earth by his father Yahweh who lives on Mount Olympus on the planet Jupiter.

    The same way blacks can pretend to believe in a white-man created Jesus why can’t they also pretend to believe in a revised depiction of the same Jesus along with Santa Claus and Superman as black superheroes to reverse the ongoing brainwashing of their own black children?

  • Check this out …let’s see if the loca lisland copiers of the barbaric and negative to practice on Black populatons…copy this positive from UK….so far they have not even addressed self-sourcing or homegrown marijuana for the sick, terminal, disabled etc……smallminded and tunnel visioned.

    From today, eligible patients in the UK will be able to apply for the UK’s new medical cannabis card – Cancard.
    The Cancard aims to protect those using self-sourced illegal cannabis for medicinal purposes from arrest. It was devised by medical cannabis patient Carly Barton and a team of senior police, and more than 15,000 people have already provisionally signed up.

    Any patient that has a health condition for which they could receive a private medical cannabis prescription, but may not necessarily be able to afford it, will be eligible for the card, and police forces across the country will receive a briefing pack from the National Police Chiefs Council.

    Chair of the Conservative Drug Policy Reform Group, MP Crispin Blunt, said: “Despite the law change in November 2018 very few of the estimated 1.4 million people in the UK who consume cannabis for medical reasons have a prescription and thus face prosecution for treating their illness. This is a wretched situation both for patients who constantly fear a knock on the door from the police and for the police themselves who are in the unenviable position of having to arrest the sick.

    “The Cancard initiative is a welcome step forward that provides necessary immediate relief and I look forward to even further progress to ensure this medicine is legally available to all who need it.”

    Treating people as patients, not criminals
    The card was devised by Barton, who is the first patient in the UK to receive a private medical cannabis prescription. She lives with chronic pain and seizure-like, dystonic episodes, and turned to the black market after she was no longer able to afford a private prescription. The card is the first initiative in the UK which gives police the tools and confidence to use their discretion for possession of an illegal substance, as well as the first to see a grassroots campaign collaborate on such a scale with law enforcement, health professionals, and policymakers.

    Barton said: “We all know that cases, where patients have proved legitimate medicinal use, are unlikely to make it to court, and if they do these cases are consistently dropped. This is especially the case when a patient presents with a condition that is being privately prescribed for. There is currently no way of identifying these people before emotional distress has been caused and public resources have been wasted.

    “There is an opportunity to provide something that changes this by way of providing a service that benefits both the patients and the police. Cancard should give patients peace of mind and police confidence in using their discretion before any stress has been caused to vulnerable people. Without a law change, we have national guidance and discretion with which to build a solution, both of which are huge parts of the design of Cancard. Having the police on board with the design and implementation of this has been essential to make this a plausible project.”

    Any police officer that encounters a patient in possession of cannabis will be able to contact a policing helpline to help them verify the patient is genuine, and the card contains an RFID chip which officers will be able to scan to confirm patient ID. The card’s working group also extends to representatives from organisations such as the Police Federation, the National Police Chiefs Council, the Police Foundation, the Drug Expert Witness Board, the Superintendents Association, senior policing figures in organised crime, the Conservative Party Drug Reform Group, and GP networks.

    GP, Dr Leon Barron, said: “Cancard ensures that these people do not have to suffer the additional burden of fear or anxiety of facing criminal charges for simply treating themselves with a medicine that they have found effective. Fortunately, there are now a growing number of GPs who are recognising the value of cannabis for therapeutic purposes and are supportive of their patients who choose this alternative treatment pathway.”

    Martyn Underhill, Police and Crime Commissioner for Dorset, added: “More than a million patients in the UK qualify for a private cannabis prescription for a range of conditions, but sadly many of them cannot afford this and so could face criminalisation if they are found in possession of what to them is a vital medicine.

    “The Cancard will provide them with assurance that their ill health will not lead to a criminal record, while it will also be a valuable tool to help frontline officers, saving them time by providing immediate verification of genuine medical patients and therefore giving them confidence to use their discretion.

    “I want to praise Carly for her dedication and the collaborative work she has done with senior officers to get this important initiative off the ground.”

    Conditions eligible for the Cancard include some of those falling under the categories of cancer, palliative care, gastrointestinal, pain, neurological, and psychiatric. “

We sought so desperately to prove that we were “as smart as they.” We didn’t understand that we were thereby accepting the reality that they had imposed to prove the opposite.

She “flipped the script” and made him the object. His genetic inadequacy became the focus. His rather disjointed and feeble “arguments” were simply manifestations of his fear of genetic annihilation.

    Even more than all this, for us as Afrikans, it is her posture that calls us to her and inspires us to be unapologetically and forcefully, Afrikan. From that day, as she continued to disarm white supremacists by exposing their illness and their source of power, her confidence became our confidence, her resolve our resolve. She was brilliant for us, and so we are “brilliant.” She was courageous, and so we gain the courage to take on the enemy. She did not run from the enemies of our people. She calls them out! Bolekaja! “Come on down, let’s fight.”

    I was trained as a Pan-Afrikanist by Nana John Henrik Clarke. I later developed as an Afrikan Nationalist in the tradition of The Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey. I am now striving to be the best Afrikan Sovereignist-Race Vindicatonist that I can be, as taught by Dr. Anderson Thompson, Dr. Bobby Wright and Baba Djedi Shemsu (Dr. Jacob Carruthers). The combination of these race champions has influenced my style of combat and my commitment to teach Afrikan students to be unrelenting as warriors for their people. Dr. Welsing’s example adds to this composite of trainers. She stood on the solid ground of race pride, much as Marcus Garvey had done. She broke the rules of academic ambivalence, detachment and intentional fuzzy-headedness. Her theories and arguments issued from the dire needs of a people under siege – her people. She knew that we couldn’t afford to spend another 400 years in captivity, not another decade. But without an understanding of those who have colonized and enslaved us, that would be our fate — for in the minds of the enemy, their survival depends on our demise.

    Our healing as a captive and exploited people lies in our ability to acknowledge our fear of the system that has been constructed to imprison us. Acknowledging that fear is the operating principle. Acknowledgement of the fear will take away its power. She knew that confronting our fear would enable us to confront the system itself.

    Through confrontation we become confident and therefore powerful. Dr. Welsing went “toe to toe” with white supremacy. That was what she did. She was consistent, unrelenting and unyielding. Her work was the healing of her people, Black people. She spent her entire adult life committed to that work. She, like Nana Marcus Mosiah Garvey and Nana John Henrik Clarke, is a warrior-healer who has helped to heal our trammeled and battered psyche. She understood, as did Bobby Wright and Baba Amos Wilson, that in a white supremacist world order, all human experience is racial. Everything is political. All reality has racial significance. It is all about power.

    These ideas are threatening to non-Afrikans and to their allies and apologists. But hers was the total warrior posture. To be comfortable in the maafa is cultural, racial and political insanity. Everything she did was in opposition to racism/white supremacy. And she brought home, in clear sharp terms, the significance of Black power. Dr. Welsing, along with others named here, was among the few who could carry the epithet of “Leader of the Race.” To truly lead us, one has to be courageous enough to speak always in the interest of Afrika even when it is unpopular and dangerous to do so. She has to have vision. So Dayi.”
