JOIN US IN OUR ANNUAL CELEBRATING OF "NATIVE

BLACK AMERICAN" ANCESTORS DAY on 12-12-18

James Hopkinson's Plantation Planting Sweet Potato

...a day where we remember, honor, celebrate and give humble thanks to those Black American Ancestors who came before and contributed over generations to the development and evolution of a "Native" Black American People; a specific People who share a very unique and common History, Culture and Centuries Old Relationship to this land called "America".  

THE CASE FOR "NATIVE BLACK AMERICAN"


Like it or not.  Admit it or not. It is a tribal world.  


Those groups who recognize the truth of this are the most successful on the planet. They work in concert for their “tribe”.  And it is passed on to the next generation. 


Jews are the best at it.


Native Black Americans are the worst.


When’s the last time you heard of a Jew killing a Jew?  


When’s the last time you heard of a Native Black American killing another Native Black American?  


If we don't do better as a tribe, our children, grand-children 

and beyond will suffer our inability to work together  

far far far into the future. Gains from past generations are 

being lost,  forgotten, appropriated, squandered,  ignored.  

 

Blood-earned Civil Rights gains/equality are being exploited by others who were nowhere to be seen when the blood was spilled 

to open doors for them to have a better shot at getting into 

places like Harvard and Yale.  They now claim discrimination--

with "Native Black Americans" as their "competitive problem".  


Yes, "some" Native Black Americans are(as they say) "standing 

on the shoulders of those who came before".  A percentage 

are living better lives because of the hard work and steep prices 

paid to open doors...for all. Great.  


But far too many Native Black Americans are being left behind.  

You disagree?  Check the crime, murder, prison, high school and 

college stats/indexes.   


Yes, America works best when tribes work together, in concert, as allies, neighbors, friends..."Americans".


BUT...


... on the real side--


Jews take care of Jews, Asians look out for Asians, Jamaicans recognize Jamaicans, Nigerians, Dominicans, Mexicans, 

Africa-Africans, India-Indians--and on and on--they distinguish themselves from "Native Black Americans"(and other "tribes")

--when convenient and to their advantage.  


White Americans of various connections champion their tribes. 


Ol' Donald Trump rode that truth to the White House... 


Bottom line:  Each group in some way champions its tribe.    


Native Black Americans are the one group who have no working 

tribal acknowledgement.  It was strong in past--and helped "Make America Great".  (No Mr. Trump, you are not the architect of that distinction.  Matter of fact, America was probably at its GREATEST when the "ALLIES"(made up of all kinds of tribes) defeated your claimed-by-heritage, mankind-destructive, misguided German brethren)...


ALL the tribes contributed.  


Native Black American cultural, political and historical 
identity was born and evolved over centuries in this place 
called "America".  From Crispus Attucks, Frederick 
Douglass, Nat Turner, Harriet Tubman, W.E.B. Dubois--
thru Jelly Roll Morton, Joe Louis, Dr. Martin Luther King, 
Thurgood Marshall, the Black Panthers, Willie Mays, 
Adam Clayton Powell, Muhammad Ali, Mahalia Jackson, 
Quincy Jones, Smokey Robinson, Mowtown, Venus and 
Serena--and on and on...

A unique and and specific people.  That's the Native Black 
American Tribe. 

This is not to deny our African origins.  It is to embrace 
our unique and specific Native Black American heritage.

To the degree we have lost our connection to that 
heritage, we have lost our connection to our specific and
unique history, culture and people.


Does your ancestry in this place called America 

disappear somewhere in the  1800's?  


Are you the descendant of slaves brought               

to America somewhere between 1600’s

and 1800’s?


 Is your culture and tribe that unique   

 culture and tribe which was born and 

 evolved  in this land now called 

 "America"?   


If so, your are Native Black American.  

You are recognized for who you are, here.  


Welcome.


Smokey speaks on "Native" Black-American versus African-American "misnomer"--

Much of what Smokey Robinson says speaks more to many of us than Jesse Jackson's misguided declaration for all. A large percentage of dissenting voices were ignored. It matters.
