“I LOVE Killer Mike, but Bernie ain’t it!”

~ Tariq Nasheed

The making of a 21st Century “Race Man”

I was first introduced to Tariq Nasheed during his 2016 appearance on The Breakfast Club, where he was promoting his latest film — Hidden Colors 4: The Religion of White Supremacy. Prior to this interview, I had never heard of Tariq, or the Hidden Colors series, but I was so impressed by his insight that I purchased four tickets to the Philly theatrical release, that was scheduled for later that Spring. During his second visit to The Breakfast Club, I was just as impressed, and immediately gave to support his 1804 project (Still haven’t got around to watching it, but I’ve heard good things), and encouraged others to do the same.

“Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one.”

Crack in the Code: What would Dr. Welsing Say?

Mama (Dr.) Marimba Ani with Nana (Dr.) Frances Cress Welsing

Dr. Welsing went “toe to toe” with white supremacy… She, like Nana Marcus Mosiah Garvey and Nana John Henrik Clarke, is a warrior-healer who has helped to heal our trammeled and battered psyche. She understood, as did Bobby Wright and Baba Amos Wilson, that in a white supremacist world order, all human experience is racial. Everything is political. All reality has racial significance. It is all about power.

Dr. Welsing, along with others named here, was among the few who could carry the epithet of “Leader of the Race.” To truly lead us, one has to be courageous enough to speak always in the interest of Afrika — even when it is unpopular and dangerous to do so.

A Final Appeal: From Omowale to Tariq

As long as we think — as one of my good brothers mentioned out of the side of his mouth here a couple of Sundays ago — that we should get Mississippi straightened out before we worry about the Congo, you’ll never get Mississippi straightened out. Not until you start realizing your connection with the Congo…

~ Malcolm X

Whether you recognize yourself as a leader, or not, there are lots of people who follow you — and your words matter. No code can replace the necessity of sober-minded leadership, disciplined group study, and ideologically-grounded, grassroots, organizing.
