When “The Gays” Were Black Folk’s Allies…
By Khalil Amani
Oh! You didn’t know that once upon a time in Black Liberation Land, “The Gays” were black folk’s allies? While you’re running around here complaining and blaming “The Gays” for piggybacking off the Civil Rights Movement of the 60’s and 70’s without mentioning that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Civil Rights Movement copied, aped, snatched, bit and piggybacked off Mahatma Gandhi’s nonviolent protest movement of “Satyagraha”—nonviolent protest—because it worked! Stop being ignorant and intellectually and historically dishonest! “The Gays” ain’t done no more than what Dr. King did; That is, borrowed a protest movement and made some shit happen! And so, like black folk, who wanted and needed to get some civil rights straightenin’ in these United States—so it was/is with “The Gays”—and today, they have damn near arrived with the Supreme Court legalizing gay marriage.
But yeah! There was a time when “The Gays” were black folk’s allies. Follow along and let me learn you sumptin’!
It appears that today’s so-called, “Conscious Community” has fallen into the non-ally “Sunken Place.” Somebody has convinced them that, “The Gays” are the enemy of black progress. They say that the, “Black Lives Matter” movement was started and headed by “The Gays” and because of this—many in the Conscious Community shun Black Lives Matter. Instead of putting some liberation mustard & ketchup on this Black Lives Matter Movement hotdog—instead of cosigning a movement that has attracted national attention for its work against police brutality—many in the Conscious Community would rather be down with a group of anti-gay homophobes who have not even become a blip on the national radar of “movements”—I’m tallumbout, “Straight Black Pride”—and from what I see—a one man dog & pony show feigning as a “movement”—created by some black homophobe named “Irritated Genie”—"irritated," because of all the gay rights strides being made—and a "genie" with no magical powers to stop the phantom “Gay Agenda” train. LOL!
Another voice of opposition to ”The Gays” is three-times accused murderer and ex-Afrika Bambaataa pederasty victim with transgender daughter turnt faux/pseudo child molestation advocate—YouTuber Hassan “Poppy” Campbell (who doesn’t claim to be part of the Conscious Community), but harbors much of their anti-gay sentiments as a rabid homophobia—so much so, that I’ve labeled him an “Sexual Identity Extremist”—for Hassan is an emerging voice of discontent at the strides of gay people. His schtick is selling demagoguery and agent provocateur-ing to his 60,000 YouTube subscribers who tune-in to his channel for a healthy dose of gay-bashing and anti-gay rhetoric—stereotyping “The Gays” as pedophiles, by showing videos of the worst of the LGBTQ’s community—gay pedophiles. This is the same dude who was supposedly “molested” by hip-hop icon, Afrika Bambaataa and as many suggest—carried on a longstanding homosexual relationship with. But there’s more! Hassan has a transgender daughter that he's estranged from because of his homophobia. But we’re not done yet! This guy Hassan fancies himself a child molestation advocate, even as he once suggested “sticking heavy dick” in another YouTuber’s son, daughter and the rest of his family! His homophobia and pedophiliac rants are next-level disgusting!
Yes! The Conscious Community has a hard-on for hating “The Gays!”
This present-day so-called Conscious Community either forgot that, “The Gays” were once part of their movement—were once black folk’s allies—or have come to a place in this present-day “struggle” where they can be picky and choosey and standoffish and aloof, as to whom they allow to help them achieve their “liberational" goals. Imagine that! One oppressed and marginalized group (blacks) telling another oppressed and marginalized group (gays) to, “Beat it! Scram! You’re beneath us! Your fight is not worthy enough to be embraced!”—meanwhile, the enemy both groups—the enemy of the oppressed—and marginalized—and disenfranchised—and downtrodden—the real enemy, which is our capitalistic white supremacist system becomes the benefactor of the downtrodden's internecine fighting. The so-called Conscious Community—“conscious” as they feign—when it comes to “The Gay’s” civil and human rights—falls back on their Christian upbringing and speaks of “Same Sex Attraction” as an “abomination”—and “unnatural”—they gets real churchified and want to tell you what some ignorant men from ages gone by have written in their so-called “holy books” regarding homosexuality. Or argue that being born black versus choosing to be gay. Or argue that, “My struggle is greater than your struggle!” A bunch of fucking surface-thinking and superficial polemicizing (arguing)! Furthermore, they wanna trash “The Gay” “lifestyle” as antithetical to the black family structure. Meanwhile, thousands of black babies and children are given to the white man and his adoption agencies by black people yearly! Meanwhile, thousands upon thousands—Yea! Millions upon millions of unwanted black babies are aborted/killed/murdered by Planned Parenthood and other agencies—that come from the sanguineous (bloody) wombs of black women who would rather dispose of that which is naturally the gift of God—black babies! Heterosexuals murder millions of babies through abortions yearly and then argue that two men or two women cannot conceive children, as though they are thoroughly unfamiliar with test tube babies and In Vitro Fertilization, which totally destroys any argument that it takes a man and a woman to create children. No! It takes ova and sperm to create children, which can now be done outside of the socio-sexual construct of intercourse and marriage.
They point the finger at “The Gays” as “abnormal,” "unnatural" and “aberrant”—a wondering off the course of sexual orthodoxy, while deciding to rid their bodies of the ova & sperm connection of a one night stand. The hypocrisy of the heterosexual mind is astonishing! They preach that gay sex is anathema (disliked) before God, but straight sex usually involves lots of so-called "unnatural" uses of human anatomy. Heterosexuals engage in oral sex, anal sex, bukake sex (splashing fresh semen/sperm on a woman's face), masturbation, etc.---by unnatural's definition, these forms of sex are unnatural uses of the mouth, anus, sperm and self (autoeroticism). We heterosexuals even enjoy the occasion "Golden Shower" (pissing on one another), but two men ass-fucking is unnatural? Ok.
”Conscious,” though they claim to be—on the question of “The Gays” as allies—they become as unconscious as Karl Marx’s “Lumpenproletariat”—“the unorganized and unpolitical lower classes of society who are not interested in revolutionary advancement.”
The so-called Conscious Community has played right into the hands of the ruling elite and our government. The FBI’s J. Edgar Hoover has long been dead (since 1972), but his Counterintelligence Program aka “Cointel-Pro” is still in full effect and the Conscious Community’s stance on “The Gays” is proof-positive that indeed—Cointel-Pro did not end in 1971—but left its bastard children—these militant homophobic black folk—around to carry on and carry out the divisiveness betwixt blacks and gays—the two groups that could singlehandedly rearrange the political landscape of America in the age of Trump.
Now let’s get down to some facts!
“The Gays” have long been part of the Black Liberation Struggle of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s and beyond. From black and gay Bayard Rustin—Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s closest confidant and comrade and the brains behind the epic 1963, “March On Washington”—to the prolific writer and great American author, James Baldwin—a gay black man who wrote, “The Fire Next Time,” “I Am Not Your Negro,” “Notes of a Native Son,” “Go Tell It On The Mountain” and other great works. James Baldwin would go on to get the front cover of Time Magazine while being a New York Times Best Seller and was friends with Martin Luther King and Malcolm X. He spent his entire life as an outwardly, openly gay black man who saw himself as black first—and spoke up like a true activist and dealt with the socio-racial issues of his day, even debating the likes of William F. Buckley and Malcolm X!
Gay/homosexual James Baldwin and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
No one shunned gay James Baldwin or gay Bayard Rustin for being homosexuals! No one cared that, because they were homosexual men, they could not speak out in defense of black folk’s civil and human rights! There were far too many important things going on in the fifties and sixties for black folk to throw away important voices just because they were gay! But look at the Conscious Community today!
Gay/homosexual Bayard Rustin, Dr. King's closest confidant and the brains behind 1963's, "March on Washington."
Can you imagine today’s Conscious Community shunning Mr. Bayard Rustin and Mr. James Baldwin—these two intellectual and historical giants—both whom walked with Dr. King---Mr. Rustin being the brains behind the March On Washington—and the other, a literary giant who debated Malcolm X—because they are gay? James Baldwin was close personal friends with Ray Charles, Nina Simone, Josephine Baker and Miles Davis. This is the kind of political backing that today’s Conscious Community lacks! Star power! (i.e. financial power)
The very fact that today’s Conscious Community can pick and choose which voices they will hear and which voices they believe are antithetical to black progress just shows how far along we’ve come. Things can’t be that bad if we can disallow certain voices amongst us. Dare I say that our present Conscious Community are some spoiled brats, devoid of the need for coalition-building?
The exceptions to the Conscious Community’s homophobia are groups like the Nuwaupians and Nature Boy’s Carbonation—groups that view gays a “Gatekeepers” and part of the sexual cycle of humanity. Cooky as many of their doctrines may be, at least they have some grasp on human sexuality.
The Conscious Community likes to talk about “agents” and “agent provocateurs” and “infiltrators.” They like to talk about the FBI’s “Counterintelligence Program” aka “Cointel-Pro.” They act as if Cointel-Pro was designed exclusively for the sole purpose of derailing black progress. Little do they know that Cointel-Pro lives on through them—by dissing “The Gays.” Part of Cointel-Pro’s mission was to keep groups and factions warring against one another like the Black Panther’s versus Karenga’s US organization. Cointel-Pro was J. Edgar Hoover’s subversive plan to keep any and all minority groups at bay—even “The Gays.” Hoover did not want alliances between blacks and gays.
But you don't hear me though! We'll get back to "The Gays," but let me give you a little backstory.
Khalil Amani is the only known ex-government informant/ex-Confidential Source amongst you, operating on the fringes of the Conscious Community via YouTube—and to a larger audience via national TV. He has studied the FBI’s tactics as well as been part of the FBI’s tactics.
If you don’t know by now, Khalil Amani is an admitted ex-Government Informant aka Confidential Source whose code name was “El Indio” (The Indian) for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) once upon a time (da 80’s/90's)—who subsequently had to enter the Federal Witness Security Program aka Witness Protection Program aka “Witsec.” Unlike a lot of people (especially on YouTube) who talk about the FBI/Cointel-Pro and its inner-workings, Khalil is someone who has firsthand knowledge of the inner-workings of the FBI, having worked for The Bureau for seven years. Khalil Amani is someone, perhaps the only person in America who was in the government’s ultra-secretive identity makeover machine, where he was erased off the grid and taken out of the Matrix and rebirthed like the phoenix rising from the ashes of Hades who lived to write and author his story—a man who told his story on five national TV shows—in People Magazine and newspapers all over the country, even having his story told in Pulitzer Prize winning writer, Sydney P. Freedberg's book, Brother Love: Murder, Money and a Messiah (Pantheon Books 1994).
After leaving the notorious Yahweh cult in Miami under Yahweh Ben Yahweh, Khalil sought to live a normal life, but was drawn into a fight against religious thuggery in an effort to save the lives of his children—the lives of Miami residence—and his own life! For you pro-blacker-than-thou folks, get out of your emotions and listen up and learn something!
Don’t get it twisted! This is not YouTube speculating and gum-flapping and guessing and bloviating of the Hassanian ilk!
In 1986, Khalil was a 26-year old man, a year out of his Yahweh cult, trying to pick up the pieces of his life when he made the final decision to spill the beans on the leader, Yahweh Ben Yahweh after unsuccessful attempts to get his children out of the cult—while fielding death threats on his life and watching the terrorism on the South Florida’s/Miami’s community—from firebombing a black neighborhood to killing two black men in an Opa-Locka apartment building while kicking black women and children out of their homes without an eviction notice or any prior notice that the cult had just purchased the apartment complex.
Going to the FBI was not a fly-by-night decision for Khalil; for he knew the history of the FBI—Hoover’s Counterintelligence Program aka “Cointel-Pro” and how destructive our government had been on black leaders and black organizations. Khalil had been pushed as far as humanly possible. With his back against the wall and nothing to lose, he walked into the FBI and began the process of cooperating. The mental pain of coming from an organization—The Yahwehs—a black militant extremist group that believed that the white man was the devil, the European Jew an impostor—Khalil had to turn to the very people he once thought to be a race of devils and ask for help.
In Khalil’s self-published autobiographical work, “My Id: Ignant & Dissfunkshunal! Life in the Yahweh Cult and the Witness Protection Program” (iuniverse.com 2007)—this is what he wrote; a black FBI agent introduces himself to Khalil saying, “We are the Federal Bureau of Investigation, a branch of the government which investigates the illegal activities of individuals and organizations. We are here to clean up wrongdoing. We are a separate entity from the CIA. We’re here to help you and if need be, protect you and the rights of all our citizens.”
“To this I responded, 'Well what about Cointel-Pro? You know, the Counterintelligence Program initiated by Hoover to disrupt minority and black organizations and leaders? Our government wasn’t too concerned about King’s, Malcolm’s, Newton’s, Hampton’s and Leonard Peltier’s rights! The government had a hand in killing and imprisoning these citizens! How do you explain that? I’m not trying to argue with you. I just want straight-up answers and loyalty—no bullshit, okay'?” Khalil was not some naive colored boy when he stepped to the FBI! He was fully aware of Cointel-Pro, King Alfred, etc.
Now back to the FBI’s Counterintelligence Program under J. Edgar Hoover.
What do you think ran through our government’s mind when the Black Panther Party realized that this whole “us against them” thing was really about the “haves versus the have-nots”—that America’s problem extended beyond race and into class struggle? The Panthers began to read the Chairman of the Communist Party of China---Mao Tse-tung's, “Red Book” and realized that our American problem will be solved through class struggle, the lower classes uniting or—as President George Bush II once said—“Coalitions of the Willing.”
And so, the Honorable Chairman Huey P. Newton, one of the founders of The Black Panther Party For Self-Defense—and arguably, the most militant black man in America since Nat Turner addressed “The Gays” with some commentary, light-years ahead of the masses! Read his words! Digest this shit and ask yourself, “What happened to the revolutionary ideas as set forth by Newton? Why is the Conscious Community so fucking homophobic today?” On the gay question, this is what Newton had to say!
"We should be careful about using those terms that might turn our friends off. The terms 'faggot' and 'punk' should be deleted from our vocabulary, and especially we should not attach names normally designed for homosexuals to men who are enemies of the people, your personal opinions and your insecurities about homosexuality and the various liberation movements among homosexuals and women, we should try to unite with them in a revolutionary fashion. I say, ‘Whatever your insecurities are' because as we very well know, sometimes our first instinct is to want to hit a homosexual in the mouth, and want a woman to be quiet. We want to hit a homosexual in the mouth because we are afraid that we might be homosexual. ... Remember, we have not established a revolutionary value system; we are only in the process of establishing it. I do not remember our ever constituting any value that said that a revolutionary must say offensive things towards homosexuals, or that a revolutionary should make sure that women do not speak out about their particular kind of oppression. ... And I know through reading, and through my life experience and observations that homosexuals are not given freedom and liberty by anyone in the society. They might be the most oppressed people in the society.”
How did we go from Newton’s foresight and ahead-of-the-curve-thinking—and coalition-building almost fifty years ago (the 70’s) to today’s Conscious Community’s, “Straight Black Pride"---an assault on the gay lifestyle and an assault on a people's self-determination for civil and human rights? Newton was interested in coalition-building with other oppressed groups! Today’s Conscious Community doesn’t have a clue about coalition-building! The Black Panthers were headed in the direction of coalition-building with poor whites and “The Gays!” Newton was laying the foundation for black folk to get past their engrained Christian homophobia and letting us know that, “The Gays” could be our allies—even arguing that, “The Gays”---“might be the most oppressed people in the society.” God forbid! You mean, “The Gays” are more discriminated against than black folk? You mean to tell me that black folk ain’t got a monopoly on discrimination? How could Newton say such a blasphemous thing? Well he did!
Newton understood fifty years ago what these new-jack, would-be black liberationists of the Conscious Community have not understood; That is, we should trash our socio-religio-political views on “The Gays” and see them for who they really are—American citizens who have been denied the right to "Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness!" Newton saw that the aim of poor white people and “The Gays” were the same aim as blacks—the de-marginalization of the lower classes. Huey P. Newton transcended the simplicity of black power with the slogan, "All Power to the People!"
Let’s go further. Enter Angela Davis. Has there ever been a more radical woman who was committed to the total liberation of black people than Angela Davis? Her peers would be Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman. As it turned out, Angela Davis is lesbian (as quoted in 1997’s, Out Magazine). Miss Davis’s activism is too vast for this blog, but just know that she was a powerful force to be reckoned with in the 60’s, 70’s and beyond—and an intellectual as well—earning a Bachelor’s, Master’s and Ph.D. degrees. One of her first teaching jobs was as a professor at UCLA. Today she is a university professor, author, feminist, activist and intellectual.
In 1970 the Black Panther Party invited Jean Genet, the famous French gay writer and activist, to the U.S., as many black Americans already considered him an ally because of his play, The Blacks. In 1991 in Paris, lesbian Panther Angela Davis spoke about this time, recalling her first meetings with Genet. It was gay Jean Genet who influenced Angela Davis about coalition-building who influenced Huey P. Newton from jail to form an alliance with "The Gays."
Lesbian Black Panther Party leader Angela Davis and French gay writer Jean Genet.
Who was Jean Genet? I’ll use Wikipedia, because its quick and accessible and reading books seems to be a fleeting pastime, but be assured—Khalil has books upon books upon books—a goddamned library in his home! Aiiight? Now! According to Wikipedia, Genet “was a French novelist, playwright, poet, essayist, and political activist. Early in his life he was a vagabond and petty criminal, but he later took to writing. His major works include the novels The Thief's Journal and Our Lady of the Flowers, and the plays The Balcony, The Maids and The Screens. …Genet had completed five novels, three plays, and numerous poems, many controversial for their explicit and often deliberately provocative portrayal of homosexuality and criminality. …In 1970, the Black Panthers invited him to the United States, where he stayed for three months giving lectures, attended the trial of their leader, Huey Newton, and published articles in their journals. …Genet also supported Angela Davis and George Jackson, as well as Michel Foucault and Daniel Defert's Prison Information Group. He worked with Foucault and Sartre to protest police brutality against Algerians in Paris…Most strikingly, Genet offers a critical dramatisation of what Aimé Césaire called negritude in The Blacks (1959), presenting a violent assertion of Black identity and anti-white virulence framed in terms of mask-wearing and roles adopted and discarded…..staged in New York. The production was the longest running Off-Broadway non-musical of the decade. Originally premiered in Paris in 1959, this 1961 New York production ran for 1,408 performances. The original cast featured James Earl Jones, Roscoe Lee Browne, Louis Gossett, Jr., Cicely Tyson, Godfrey Cambridge, Maya Angelou and Charles Gordone.”
You got it! Jean Genet, the French writer, poet, director, playwright and activist was a homosexual genius who was down with the Black Panther Party, writing in defense of Huey P. Newton when he was in prison. This is where the Black Liberation Movement and “The Gays” crossed paths and acted as coalition-builders. This was a powerful combination!
You want more? Well here’s more!
When Black Panther Party member George Jackson’s book entitled, “Soledad Brother” came out, he had the backing of white men, gay men and white women! Again, according to Wikipedia, “The Soledad Brothers were three African-American inmates charged with the murder of a white prison guard, John Vincent Mills, at California's Soledad Prison on January 16, 1970…..The Soledad Brothers Defense Committee was formed by Fay Stender to assist in publicizing the case and raising funds to defend Jackson, Drumgo, and Clutchette. Among the several celebrities, writers, and left-wing political activists that supported the SBDC and their cause were Julian Bond, Kay Boyle, Marlon Brando, Jane Fonda, Noam Chomsky, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Allen Ginsberg, Tom Hayden, William Kunstler, Jessica Mitford, Linus Pauling, Pete Seeger, Benjamin Spock, and Angela Davis.”
Look at the powerful names connected to the Black Panthers—actor in The Godfather’s, Marlon Brando—high powered attorney William Kunstler—and actress Jane Fonda! A bunch of famous and powerful white people! I ain’t gonna tell you about each one of them, but mixed up in there also is Allen Ginsberg, a gay man who was an American poet, philosopher, writer, and activist. Wikipedia says, “He is considered to be one of the leading figures of both the Beat Generation during the 1950s and the counterculture that soon followed. One contribution that is often considered his most significant and most controversial was his openness about homosexuality. Ginsberg was an early proponent of freedom for gay people. In 1943, he discovered within himself ‘mountains of homosexuality.’ He expressed this desire openly and graphically in his poetry. He also struck a note for gay marriage by listing Peter Orlovsky, his lifelong companion, as his spouse in his Who's Who entry.”
Homosexual Allen Ginsberg: poet, philosopher, writer, activist. A powerhouse voice for the Black Panther Party!
Again! Don’t miss my fucking point! Gay and white and famous Allen Ginsberg was a staunch supporter of Huey P. Newton and The Black Panther Party! That’s my effing point!
When Black Panther Party member George Jackson wrote his book, “Soledad Brother” and needed some literary and liberational and thought-provoking and coalition-building mustard—who do you think he allowed to write the “Introduction” to his book? It was written by gay Jean Genet—the famous French director and activist who had written for the Black Panther Party and Huey P. Newton’s freedom! The Paris Review wrote, “Since the 1970 publication of Soledad Brother, his ferocious, disquieting collection of letters from prison, [Black Panther Party] Jackson had been an international celebrity. In his introduction to the book’s first printing, [gay] JEAN GENET insisted that the collection 'must be read as a manifesto, as a tract, as a call to rebellion, since it is that first of all'.”
White and gay JEAN GENET on the front cover of Black Panther Party member, George Jackson's book, Soledad Brother---writing the Introduction.
Again! Again! Don’t miss my fucking point! Gay and white and famous Jean Genet, like gay and white Allen Ginsberg was a staunch supporter of George Jackson and Huey P. Newton and The Black Panther Party! That’s my effing point!
Jean Genet (the old man) and Allen Ginsberg (far right) in Chicago 1968.
What happened to the coalition-building of the past? How did this present-day Conscious Community become so homophobic—and again—when I say, “Homophobic,” I’m not referring to black people being “afraid” of gay people! That’s simply an elementary understanding of the word “phobia” used on the simpleton mind to undermine the contentiousness some people have towards gays. I speak of “phobia” as having an aversion to—a detestation—antipathy—revulsion—loathing—intolerance—exaggerated or irrational fear! You got it numbnuts? Fuck your baby definition of “phobia!” I’m tallumbout a mindset that makes you uncomfortable as fuck about same-sex attraction! I'm tallumbout a mindset that has you thinking homosexuality leads to pedophilia! I'm tallumbout a mindset where you wanna kill people based on sexuality! This is the true definition of HOMOPHOBIA!
What happened Conscious Community? Why is y’all so stuck on hating “The Gays?” Why is y’all down with the abstraction and oxymoronic named group, “Straight Black Pride?”
The foray into the “Sunken Place” of our current Conscious Community’s homophobia can be pinpointed with the advent of the New Black Panther Party. For it was the New Black Panther Party who deviated from the philosophy of the original Black Panther Party—and not for nothing—some to the original members of the Black Panther Party voiced their opposition to this new-jack group who came along in 1989 and pilfered the name, while discarding the original Panther’s philosophies—That is; working with other groups and forming alliances and coalitions and not considering themselves anti-white—something that the New Black Panther Party fell victim to—a type of reverse racism of sorts.
According to Wikipedia, “Members of the original Black Panther Party have insisted that the newer party is illegitimate and they have firmly declared, ‘There is no new Black Panther Party…’ The NBPP is largely seen by both the general public and prominent members of the original party as illegitimate…[the] Huey Newton Foundation members, containing a significant number of the original party's leaders, once successfully sued the group; their ultimate objective in doing so—to prevent the NBPP from using the Panther name—appears to have been unsuccessful. In response to the suit, Aaron Michaels branded the original Panthers ‘has-been wannabe Panthers’…Critics of the NBPP say that the group's politics represent a dangerous departure from the original intent of black nationalism; specifically, that they are starkly anti-white, and also antisemitic. The Southern Poverty Law Center classifies the NBPP as a black separatist hate group and notes that its members hold black supremacist religious views.”
In short, the New Black Panther Party strayed from the philosophies of the old Black Panther Party. With the advent of the New Black Panther Party’s leader, Khalid Muhammad (R.I.P.)—a reject from the Nation of Islam—after he and Minister Farrakhan had a great falling out—the New Black Panther Party took a more militant, anti-white, anti-Jewish stance. Whereas the original Black Panther Party made coalitions with poor whites—its leader, Huey P. Newton made pro-gay speeches (as you’ve heard) and brought prominent gay voices to the fore in an effort to build bridges between the gay community and the black community—with the ultimate aim and goal of uplifting impoverished, marginalized and disenfranchised people of all walks of life! Thus, the original Black Panther Party coined the phrase, ”All Power to the People”—to protest the rich, ruling class domination of society. It was about class struggle. The New Black Panther Party deviated from, “All Power to the People” to “Black Power!”—and today—that same “Black Power!” is echoed in the "Sunken Place" of this present-day Conscious Community's homophobia.
The influence of the Nation of Islam on the New Black Panther Party, through its leader, Khalid Muhammad was evident. He brought in the radical, anti-white elements of the Nation of Islam into his newfound organization and polluted and bastardized the original Black Panther Party model. The New Black Panther Party does not want to work with progressive whites or progressive gays. Khalid Muhammad simply converted the New Black Panther Party into a Nation of Islam 2.0.
Enter Sa Neter.
Sa Neter—a Youtuber from Harlem, New York is the unofficial, “King of the Conscious Community.” When I first came into contact with this Conscious Community, it was through Sa Neter’s YouTube platform. Unequivocally and hands down, Sa Neter is the face of the Conscious Community—a “community” with a plethora of religio-socio-political-nationalistic ideas. Like the phantom, “Gay Agenda”—there is no Board of Reagents—no headquarters—and no application for membership into the Conscious Community. It is simply and merely an idea of like-minded people who hold the idea that black people are in need of a "centric" community and monolithic voice in the upliftment of black people. Amongst them are people claiming to be Moors, Muslims, Hebrew Israelites, Kemetics (Egyptians), Aboriginals/Native Americans, Nuwaupians, RBG Hebrews, black power dudes, fix your credit dudes, a film-maker dude, another dude who’s been trying to build a school for black children, health gurus, and, as I spoke about earlier, a three-times accused of murderer and rabid homophobe with a transgender daughter who feigns a disassociation from the Conscious Community, but nonetheless, he's one of their's.
Sa Neter is my guy though! Don't get it twisted! We’ve had our issues, but as men, we've talked it out and today—I respect him as a man and as a mover & shaker in the Conscious Community. What I have to say about the Conscious Community and Sa Neter is done in the spirit of love. This long-ass blog is done in the spirit of love. It was some laborious love to write this vlog!
Sa Neter has the power to steer the Conscious Community out of the "Sunken Place" of its misplaced homophobia. Sa Neter was part of the New Black Panther Party, thus, being inoculated with the venom of Khalid Muhammad’s rabid anti-white and anti-gay diatribes. The original Black Panther Party members have already stated that the New Black Panther Party members have gone astray. Sa Neter—who was formerly a New Black Panther Party member can remain on the wrong side of history with the “Black Power!” schtick or return to the true essence of what it meant and means to be a Black Panther Party member, which is, “All Power to the People!”—“All power,” meaning, all power to disenfranchised people, which includes, “The Gays.”
For indeed! J. Edgar Hoover’s Counterintelligence Program aka “Cointel-Pro” is alive and well in 2018! The Conscious Community’s UN-consciousness as it relates to class struggle—by keeping and allowing the divisiveness over race and sexual preference. This is exactly what the FBI under Hoover had in mind! Keep the lower classes warring! Create a bridge and gulf betwixt the classes. Disunity is the key to power and control! Cointel-Pro is bigger than disinformation and putting agent provocateurs amongst organizations. Its greater goal was to not allow the lower classes of society—blacks, women, poor whites and gays to become unified! These four affected classes—together—have the power to rearrange the social and political order of the day. Our government, under J. Edgar Hoover knew this! Why is the Conscious Community UN-conscious to this reality? Our government might've closed the books on Cointel-Pro in 1971, but in 2018 they've opened the books on "Black Identity Extremism"--the new Cointel-Pro--and today, not only are there black identity extremist ideas running rampant through the Conscious Community, but also, problematic and dangerous sexual identity extremist ideas, as put forth by Straight Black Pride and Hassan Campbell.
Don’t allow the “Hassanian Sexual Identity Extremist” mindset to render you UN-conscious. Mr. Campbell is simply a rebel-rouser, an agent provocateur—a man who has not come to terms with his own sexuality and has thus, gone on a quest to appear uber-heterosexual by denigrating “The Gays” as pedophiles. Hassan is doing the bidding of Cointel-Pro—trying to drive a wedge between black folks and “The Gays.” With reckless abandon—Hassan’s homophobia is next level! Even though this man has a transgender daughter, his need to paint homosexuals as pedophiles has put that which came from his thigh in serious danger! But I’m gonna tell ya like rappers Public Enemy told us—“Don’t believe the hype!” Hassan is the poster-boy for the "Sexual Identity Extremist Movement" ala whatever the fuck happened with him and Afrika Bambaataa years ago! And don't let no one tell you that Afrika Bambaata is backed by the LGBTQ community! He's not! Tell 'em I said, "You'z a muthafuckin' lie!" Bambaataa is a pederast and a pedophile, not a gay-same-gender-loving man! Get that shit straight! The LGBTQ does not want Afrika Bambaataa! He's never openly claimed them, so why would they openly claim him?
Its legacy time! Its be-your-own-man-time! Its do you have your own singular voice time? Its, "Are you afraid to step out of the shadows of the prevailing Conscious Community's homophobia time? As the unofficial leader of the Conscious Community—this is the challenge for Sa Neter; Lead the babies to a more inclusive movement or stay bogged down in the muck & mire—yea, the cesspool of this new-jack, pro-black philosophy—devoid of coalition-building. For this is a truism: Every real movement needs allies from without! Remember! There was a time when “The Gays” were our allies!
Wake up black people! I mean really wake the fuck up! Your consciousness is UN-conscious if you don’t understand the real end-game—that is—division of the races, division of the classes, division of the religions and alas! Division based on sexual orientation! This is the end-game of Cointel-Pro! Take it from an ex-government informant with "them people" on speed dial! Peace.
