We know that we need black men to stand up and defend their families at all cost. Brothers will have to be prepared mentally and physically when the time comes. We need our sistas to be there to protect and nurture the babies. The children are the future. Without them we have NO future. But I also know there are many black women that are single and struggling to make it day to day. But the time may(and will) come when they will have to get involved in the fight for our survival. The responsibility doesn’t fall all on black women. I’m not saying they have to be the leaders in this quest for our survival. But they do play a huge part in it. We have to get our minds right for what’s sure to come. And we’ll need the help of our female warriors to get the job done. Our collective survival is at stake. The question is–will we be ready?
This is from the radio program War on the Horizon. The radio host is Irritated Genie. I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with the brother a few times. In this broadcast he explains that we need to arm ourselves in case of an emergency. He is being very serious since we are living in serious times. After Barack Obama was re-elected this week–gun sales went through the roof! Why? Many people feel as though their rights are being taken away and need to be armed for protection against whoever the enemy may be. There’s no more time to waste. You have to protect you and your family. Irritated Genie gives some great information in this radio broadcast. Grab a pen and paper.
This second part is really good. They really get into some very important information. This discussion is very constructive.
This is a roundtable discussion with Brother Montu. This time around he speaks with black women to get a feminine perspective on survival. It’s good to hear sistas out there that are preparing their family for any type of emergency that may arrive. Do your thing black women! Get your family and friends informed!
“Along with the depth of our spiritual connectedness, Afrikans are the most
family/child-centered people on the planet. We place nothing above our
children, except that which will bring them into existence and allow us to rear
them in the way of our Ancestors. This does not happen without complementary
coupling and commitment. Generally speaking, the two most important variables
in this effort to produce and rear warriors are national sovereignty and family.
However, families cannot exist as whole, sane, progressive, empowered forces
capable of maintaining a sovereign reality without the complementary coming
together of men and women. And, to have the possibility of success, these
individuals must have committed themselves to each other as lifelong couples
sworn to build children powerful enough to sustain their society. If we are
truly nationbuilders, we have to honestly ask ourselves what is the best model
of who we want to be that we can/should pass on to our children? But, not
really, because we already know the answer. Nationbuilding begins and ends with
complementarity. It can only sustain itself and create a viable future through
the balanced pairing of women and men into married couples whose priority is
family/children first. To do what is right for the children is to build a whole
future. In this respect, those who are setting the revolutionary standard need
to ask themselves if their priorities are truly being set in accord with the
will of our Ancestors.”
