Attention Blacks, “African Americans”, Afrodescendants: Civil Death Explained By Honorable Silis Muhammad

African American Civil Death Graphic

CIVIL DEATH means you are in existence, but you are not known politically in the State in which you reside. As you have no identity in the world: you are rendered a stateless people, according to Sub-Commissioner, Professor Jose Bengoa.

Civil death is an international (UN) term; it can be interpreted to mean that you do not exist as a human being. You have no collective human rights, except those rights that are given or granted you.

How do we come out of the state of civil death? First, we must recognize and accept that we are indeed in a state of civil death. We must accept and recognize that we are nothing politically; we are not human beings, as seen through the eyes of the UN. Our mother tongue is our identity.

The language my grandmother and grandfather spoke was a broken English with Africanized sounds and phrasing. By no stretch of the imagination was it a mother tongue. In that we were deprived, and thereby denied our mother tongue, we have no Identity politically.

I know that this is a hard pill to swallow; but what political identities have we, except the absorbed or partially absorbed political identity of the slave master’s children, in the countries where 250 million of my people (Afrodescendants) are scattered. You cannot buy your way back into being a human being, by flaunting money.

We must reconnect to others of our kind and become politically reinstated to the human family. How? We reconnect to others by telling our story – by reconnecting like unto the dry bones in a valley, if you are familiar with Biblical stories.

How to improve the Black condition without enduring U.S. politics (which doesn’t address what’s required for true Black freedom)

Upon realizing they need to do more to improve the Black condition, there are Black community activists and concerned Black Family members that say you should make sure you vote to let your voice be heard.african-american-voting

Don’t get me wrong. Everyone must be productive in the society in which they live. However, participating in America’s political process will not address the full set of issues that are required for achieving Black freedom, justice, and equality.

You must accept that the American political process does not provide an avenue of success for you, Black man and woman. If not, you cannot help the Black Family or the Black Nation remove ourselves from the second-class citizenship status we now occupy in America at the moment.

To help you grasp this critical fact, consider the pearls of wisdom in the 3 thoughts I’m about to share with you:

Thought #1: Moses of the Bible did not encourage the Children of Israel to vote in Pharoah’s societal politics

This is important because if you do not understand that our ancestors provided guidance to help us through the wilderness of North America [symbolically Egypt] in this hour, you will engage in self-defeating and time-wasting actions, like hoping an American president can improve the plight of Black people. Black people’s story in America is the story of the Children of Israel in Egypt. Reference Genesis 15:13. Understand that and unite with self and kind.

Thought #2: Kunta Kente, depicted in the movie Roots, would not have wanted Black people to assimilate into American society and to subsequently lose our cultural identity (with names such as Toby, Mary, or Sally)

You must realize that you are a manifestation of your ancestors who wanted to be FREE. Their blood, DNA, and thoughts course through your existence at this moment. Why not accept that the drive for freedom is who you are at this moment and reclaim your cultural identity through unity? You may experience your own personal awakening by doing so.

Thought #3: Harriet Tubman would have wanted us to reclaim our identity and return to the land of our forefathers

This you must come to terms with, as you must know that Blacks have been stripped of our original culture–ways of living, praying, eating, and more during plantation slavery. These areas of life we developed on our own over thousands of years to make sense of our existence and pass it down to our children. Plantation slavery broke disrupted our innate ability to do this. As a result, we must reclaim the right, desire, and ability to do this for ourselves.

Overall, these 3 thoughts about black freedom can put real power in your decision-making as a Black activist and/or Black Family member who wants to do more to uplift our Black Nation.

But don’t forget, there’s a lot more to gaining Black freedom, especially if you want to improve the Black condition. So don’t let this article be the end of your journey, but rather the beginning of your quest for more knowledge and tools to bring it about.

Original Man, Know Thyself [free download below]

Reprinted from the book, “A Message To The Black Man”

Iblack-man-know-thyselft is knowledge of self that the so-called Negroes lack which keeps them from enjoying freedom, justice and equality.  This belongs to them divinely as much as it does to other nations of the earth.

It is Allah’s (God’s) will and purpose that we shall know ourselves.  Therefore He came Himself to teach us the knowledge of self.  Who is better knowing of who we are then God, Himself?  He has declared that we are descendants of the Asian black nation and of the tribe of Shabazz.

You might ask, who is this tribe of Shabazz? Originally, they were the tribe that came with the earth (or this part) 66 trillion years ago when a great explosion on our planet divided it into two parts.  One we call earth and the other moon.

This was done by one of our scientists, God, who wanted the people to speak one language, one dialect for all, but was unable to bring this about.  He decided to kill us by destroying our planet, but still He failed.  We were lucky to be on this part of, earth, which did not lose its water in the mighty blasting away of the part called moon.

We, the tribe of Shabazz, says Allah (God), were the first to discover the best part of our planet to live on.  The rich Nile Valley of Egypt and the present seat of the Holy City, Mecca, Arabia.

(NOTE: Click here if you’d like to unite with like-minded Black people who are building up the Black Nation with a sure knowledge of Self.)

The origin of our kinky hair, says Allah, came from one of our dissatisfied scientists, 50,000 years ago, who wanted to make all of us tough and hard in order to endure the life of the jungles of East Asia (Africa) and to overcome the beasts there.  But he failed to get the others to agree with him.

He took his family and moved into the jungle to prove to us that we could live there and conquer the wild beasts, and we have.  So, being the first and the smartest scientist on the deportation of our moon and the one who suffered most of all, Allah (God) has decided to place us on the top with a thorough knowledge of self and his guidance.

We are the mighty, the wise, the best, but do not know it.  Being without the knowledge, we disgrace ourselves, subjecting ourselves to suffering and shame.  We could not get the knowledge of self until the coming of Allah.  To know thyself is to know all men, as from us came all and to us all will return.

I must keep warning you that you should give up the white race’s names and religion in order to gain success.  Their days of success are over.  Their rule will last only as long as you remain asleep to the knowledge of self.

Awake and know that Allah has revealed the truth.  Stop believing in something coming to you after you are physically dead.  That is untrue, and no one can show any proof of such belief.

Again, know that Jesus was only a prophet and cannot hear you pray any more than Moses or another dead prophet.  Know too, that this white race was created to be the enemy of black mankind for 6,000, which makes their number to be six.  That is not your number or mine.  We do not have a number, because we have no birth record.  Do not let anyone fool you.  This is the separation and the War of Armageddon.
