Is The National Defense Authorization Act The Latest Threat To The Black Family?


Every year, the U.S. State Department issues reports on individual rights in other countries, monitoring the passage of restrictive laws and regulations. For example, America looks critically at other countries for denying fair public trials, undermining due process, using secret evidence and torture.

Even as America judges countries considered lacking freedom, many vocal white Americans have expected that any definition of a free nation would include their own country — the so-called land of the free.
|
Instead, America has vigorously campaigned to reduce civil liberties in the name of a stronger security state since Sept. 11, 2001. An example of this is the National Defense Authorization Act or NDAA that allows for the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens.  You might ask:
|
  • “HOW COULD THE NDAA AFFECT ME OR MY BLACK FAMILY?”
The U.S. federal government has the power to arrest you indefinitely in prisons outside of America in the NDAA Section 1021.
  • “I’M NOT WORRIED ABOUT THE NDAA, BECA– USE I’M NOT DOING ANYTHING WRONG.”
Well, you should be concerned somewhat.  Black, African American, Afrodescendant people have never had the full enjoyment of civil liberties.
|
In our past, America has blatantly violated our rights to free speech, a fair trial, etc., through COINTELPRO infiltrations, policies that result in mass incarceration of Black, African American, Afrodescendant people and more. Knowing this causes many of you to stay silent on many issues even to this day.
|
The national security powers America has evoked are a kind of montage of powers which causes America to now resemble countries America has criticized as lacking basic individual rights–such as due process–placing U.S outside of recognized definitions of “free.” The NDAA promises also to prevent those who want to come forward with information vital to the public from doing so.
|
From where Black, African American, Afrodescendant stand, we have always experienced the unchecked powers of America in the form of Transatlantic Slavery, the unfulfilled promises of an Emancipation Proclamation, Jim Crow laws, Tuskegee experimentation, and institutional racism. Now, the ‘War on Terrorism’ police state is certain to make us the usual suspect.
|
Nevertheless, even though a lack of basic freedoms is not new to us, it is definitely not something to which we should continue being accustomed.
|
As solutions, some would like to stop the NDAA with permanent injunctions, sue the Obama Administration over the NDAA, or repeal the mandatory military detention requirement.
|
But what should you do, my fellow brother and sisters? For decades, our people have struggled to exercise a basic rights. Should you seek a solution of your own? Moreover, what of Afrodescendants, our siblings who reside in countries whose constitutions say it guarantees freedoms and rights, yet these governments deny them rights and blockade real avenues for citizens to challenge them.
|
The LFNOI, on behalf of the Afrodescendant Nation, humbly submits another solution to you:
|
* You can recognize that a government of our own, an Afrodescendant Nation, can help us to further self-determine, decide our own destiny, and enable us to say what laws we want governing our life.
|
It is your right to do so.
|
If you are a non-Muslim Afrodescendant, you should visit your local mosque to participate in the dialogue and work now for self-determination in the Afrodescendant Nation.

BLACK FAMILY: A Government of Our Own Enables Us To Improve Our Quality of Life


By Zaqqiyah Haamidah

When asked about the state of racism, Blacks correctly recognize that it is a problem in America.black-family

The Pew Charitable Trust survey that I refer to found that even four decades after the  the Civil Rights era, Blacks still do not believe in the basic racial fairness of U.S. society.

If you are like the more than eight-in-ten Blacks in the survey, you also recognize that America has not done enough to ensure equal rights for Blacks. And you also are less satisfied than whites about life and your local community, and you don’t believe that the police treats Blacks equally as whites.

So since this is the case, I ask you Black Family, is the right solution to keep waiting for an American government to get rid of racism against Blacks?  Should we sacrifice the minds, bodies, and souls of another generation of children to the whims of a socio-economic system that fails to address our problems? Do we continue standing by idly while not building up our own nation/culture? The Honorable Silis Muhammad,CEO of the Lost-Found Nation of Islam, correctly stated in one of his pivotal addresses that Black people should be under a Black government.

Why would a government be our solution, you may ask? Well, when one country commits an injustice against another country or that country’s citizens, the offended country has the option to invoke trade embargoes, sanctions or take other diplomatic actions against the offending country. But when Blacks are treated unjustly–so-called citizens of America–we presently are in the position of being given justice only if America feels like giving us justice.

We usually have to go about marching in the streets, and protesting. Nothing permanently gets established to prevent the racist action or bias that likely affronted us by the U.S. or its agents, however.

Therefore, a government of our own would provide Blacks the force of law required to gain full freedom, justice and equality as individuals who are members of a nation. This is the only way to ensure we receive the kind of treatment required to live our lives fully, and receive respect as members of the human family of the earth.

You may be interested to know that our nation has been recognized in the U.N. with the term “Afrodescendant”, which identifies our more than 250 million identifiable members globally. And, as we speak, the building of our governement, the Afrodescendant Nation, is underway.

So I’ve just explained to you how the Black Family’s recognition that racism as a long-time problem is a show of our Collective Wisdom, and that our recognition that self-government as our Ultimate Solution is the next recognition that we must make.

Start seeing yourself as a member of a mighty nation of people, a Black Family, capable of building a government of our own. When you do, you will have the keys to ridding yourself of racism’s stigma once and for all.

BLACK JUSTICE: Lost-Found Nation of Islam Participates in the Ndaba United For Reparations Event

Minister Karriem Al-Ghani, along with Assistant Ministers Omar Hasan and Fatimah Umrani, will participate in the Ndaba 2012 United for Reparations event to occur on October 5-7, 2012, at Shape Community Center, 3903 Almeda, Houston, Texas 77004.
Ndaba
Ndaba 2012 United for Reparations is a multi-organizational event that seeks to provide Afrodescendants (slave descendants of the Transatlantic Slave Trade) an inclusive process for achieving reparations, and for understanding the economic, political, spiritual and cultural atrocities of the Transatlantic Slave Trade.
Al-Ghani, Hasan and Umrani, of the Lost-Found Nation of Islam-Houston, will speak about the past, present and future implications of identifying with the term, “Afrodescendant”, a United Nations-designated term which identifies descendants of the Transatlantic Slave Trade.

 

The significance of Ndaba 2012 United for Reparations is to bring leaders of various segments of the so-called African American community together to seek reparations, as well as to expand enjoyment of freedom, justice and equality for Afrodescendants globally.

 

The Lost-Found Nation of Islam-Houston is under the leadership of the Honorable Silis Muhammad. Mr. Muhammad is also CEO of All for Reparations & Emancipation (AFRE), a nongovernmental organization in consultative status with the United Nations–which successfully spearheaded efforts to obtain human rights recognition for so-called African Americans with the term “Afrodescendants”.

 

For more information, contact us, or to get a schedule of events planned, call Krystal at 713-261-3558.
