The Queen Commands Blacks To Be Workers NOT Employers
The Year was 1865. The place was the Caribbean island of Jamaica. The man was Paul Bogle, The circumstance was the dire conditions of the former slaves. These, now free, men sent a letter to Queen Victoria asking for Crown lands in order that they might cultivate it. This would allow them the opportunity to eke out an existence and thereby achieve black economic empowerment. The response of the queen was quite instructive. Instructive, if only because it speaks to systematic, deliberate black economic oppression by white supremacist, even to today. The queen outlines the supremacist position thus:
“…the prosperity of the labouring classes (Africans) depends… on their working for wages, not uncertainly or capriciously, but steadily and continuously, at the time when their labour is wanted and for so long as it is wanted… if they would use this industry and thereby render the plantations productive , they would enable the planters to pay them higher wages…it is from their own industry and prudence (as workers) in availing themselves of the means of prospering…and not from any such schemes as have been suggested to them, that they must look for an improvement in their condition…”
Blacks Must Advance Only As Employees
What her majesty is saying most eloquently, is that their advancement MUST and CAN ONLY be achieved as employees. It MUST NOT be sort through self-reliance, or by being employers. Every effort has and is made, to ensure that Africans are not part of the land owner class. They must forever live a life of servitude. They must depend on their white overlords for sustenance. Blacks MUST depend on the wages they earn as employees to improve their living conditions.
Their minds are poisoned with the belief, in spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, that Africans cannot run businesses. Whenever they have sort to break this yoke placed upon them, Black economic oppression is advanced through deliberate, concerted efforts. To achieve this objective credit facilities are denied; new laws are instituted; or just plain, unbridled aggression is unleashed.
A Classic Example Of Black Economic Oppression
In Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 1st 1921, what is known as the ‘Tulsa Race Riots’ took place. In what was a perfect example of black economic advancement, one that put paid to the oft told lie that, ‘blacks are unable to run business’. The community known as the Black Wall Street, was totally wrecked by whites in one night. Twelve hours is what it took to utterly destroy all that was built – everything burnt flat to the ground. It was the result of total savagery, inspired by jealousy.
The insane, feeding frenzy resulted in “…some 3,000 African-Americans dead, 1500 homes destroyed and over 600 successful businesses lost. Among these were 21 churches, 21 restaurants, 30 grocery stores and two movie theaters, plus a hospital, a bank, a post office, libraries, schools, law offices, a half-dozen private airplanes and even a bus system.” – San Francisco Bay View
The Systemic Subjugation of Blacks
These are just two of many examples of the prevailing mindset. One which propagates the concept that people of African descent must forever be kept at the bottom of the social ladder. They must be confined to that of the working caste, available for cheap labor, but kept from positions of self empowerment by any means necessary.
The entire system is so designed as to stop any black economic empowerment. The religious; political; educational; legal; financial and social structures are all constructed to ensure one objective. One so aptly described by Napoleon Bonaparte as he sort to bring an end to the successful Haitian slave revolt:
“My decision to destroy the authority of the blacks in Haiti is not so much based on considerations of commerce and money, as on the need to block forever the march of the blacks in the world.”
