4/12/11 ' Abe' & Civil War Lies: Genocide Against U.S. Black Nation

Power in defense of freedom is greater than power on behalf of tyranny and oppression.
...a nation born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race. Even before there were large numbers of Negroes on our shore, the scar of our racial hatred had already disfigured colonial society. From the sixteenth century forward, blood flowed in battles over racial supremacy. We are perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter of national policy to wipe out its indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. Indeed, even today we have not permitted ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode. Our literature, our films, our drama, our folklore all exalt it. Our children are still taught to respect the violence which reduced a red-skinned people of an earlier culture into a few fragmented groups herded into impoverished reservations...
... I believe in anger. I believe it is a crime for anyone who is being brutalized to continue to accept that brutality without doing something to defend himself. I am for violence if non-violence means that we continue postponing or even delaying a solution to the American black man’s problem. White man hates to hear anybody, especially a black man, talk about the crime that the white man perpetrated on the black man. But let me remind you that when the white man came into this country, he certainly wasn’t demonstrating non-violence.
Sitting at the table doesn't make you a diner, unless you eat some of what's on that plate. Being here in America doesn't make you an American. Being born here in America doesn't make you an American. Time is on the side of the oppressed today, it's against the oppressor. Truth is on the side of the oppressed today, it's against the oppressor...
Malcolm X (1925 - 1965), Autobiography of Malcolm X chap 4, excerpts

Black enslavement on which this racist country's wealth and "manifest destiny"are based, enabling capitalism's crusade for global supremacy which has culminated today in its barbaric state terror war to conquer all rivals and resistance to secure its world hegemony.
The social, political and cultural bonds of the Black nation, forged in struggle against slavery and reconstruction, grew the Black liberation struggle against systemic, institutionalized national oppression. Undefeated by the barbarism of north america, the Black nation became the leading political edge of resistance to U.S. capitalism and racism, its ideological lynchpin that creates and inflames divisions within the multinational working class, and between it and the broader society, the toxin that secures white supremacist patriotic loyalty.

As global anti-imperialist resistance and major capitalist rivals shred the U.S. domination agenda, what's urgently needed is internationalist anti-imperialism, fortified by Black revolutionary leadership in the "homeland" as the death-knell to US fascism. Revolutionary Black nationalism, merged with a multinational working class, always the major internal threat to capitalist rule. From the fields, factories, prisons, churches and ghettos, to the battlefields of Vietnam, African americans have led the struggle against injustice, racism and a system that requires wars for empire. Black soldiers, inspired by the heroic struggle of the Vietnamese against US imperialism, brought the war home. A powerful Black liberation movement led by the Black Panther Party grew into the revolutionary upsurge of the 1960s and 70's. Here in the belly of the beast, millions were aroused and united, all colors, across classes, in solidarity with the national liberation struggles burning across the Third World. An anti-imperialist socialist revolutionary world was at U.S. imperialism’s front door as capitalist rule was threatened for the first time.

Today, as the inherent internal contradictions of capital come to a head and interact with external contradictions, U.S. capitalism is in deep structural crisis that can only be managed by maintaining its global dominance. Historically world wars have temporarily resolved major crises, expanding global political-exconomic control to maximize the accumulation of capital by eliminating rivals and leading counter-revolution.
The "war on terrorism" ---- [GWOT/'Long War'/ Obama's rebranding 'Overseas Contingency Operations' didn't catch but expansion of the state terror project continues expanding] ---
is an imperialist world war of a new type, a doomed attempt to permanently solidify global rule over a "new world order", the old "manifest destiny". As this fascist fantasy suffers irreparable defeats --- by Iraqi National Resistance and everywhere it spreads its killer democracy --- forcing the u.s. to dig its grave ever deeper as it expands the military juggernaut aided by soft power 'diplomacy, democracy and development', tightens the domestic police state, intensifies 'information warfare's monstrous deceptions --- and generates increasing hatred and resistance, catapulting its gravediggers into action --- except in its still complicit class and 'race' privileged 'hopeful', "homeland". A renaissance of Black resistance and leadership, the leading edge of revolution, is what postmodern slavemasters fear most. Neoliberal capitalist 'fascism with a friendly (now Black) face', under 'counter-terrorism' pretext, is preparing against resistance in the "homeland". We had better wake up politically and prepare too.

There were two kinds of Negroes. There was that old house Negro and the field Negro. And the house Negro always looked out for his master. When the field Negroes got too much out of line, he held them back
in check. He put 'em back on the plantation....

...whereas Abraham Lincoln stated in Charleston, Illinois that "I am not now, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social or political equality of the white and black races. I am not now nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor of intermarriages with white people. There is a physical difference between the white and the black races which will forever forbid the two races living together on social or political equality. There must be a position of superior and inferior, and I am in favor of assigning the superior position to the white man.”

Lincoln on Slavery & Emancipation
We know that some Southern men do free their slaves, go North and become tip-top abolitionists, while some Northern Men go South and become most cruel masters.
When Southern people tell us that they are no more responsible for the origin of slavery than we are, I acknowledge the fact. When it is said the institution exists, and it is very difficult to get rid of in any satisfactory way, I can understand and appreciate the saying. I surely will not blame them for not doing what I should not know what to do as to the existing institution. My first impulse would possibly be to free all slaves and send them to Liberia to their own native land. But a moment's reflection would convince me that this would not be best for them. If they were all landed there in a day they would all perish in the next ten days, and there is not surplus money enough to carry them there in many times ten days. What then? Free them all and keep them among us as underlings. Is it quite certain that this would alter their conditions? Free them and make them politically and socially our equals? My own feelings will not admit of this, and if mine would, we well know that those of the great mass of whites will not. We cannot make them our equals. A system of gradual emancipation might well be adopted, and I will not undertake to judge our Southern friends for tardiness in this matter.
from Lincoln speeches at Peoria, Illinois

I acknowledge the constitutional rights of the States — not grudgingly, but fairly and fully, and I will give them any legislation for reclaiming their fugitive slaves.
The point the Republican party wanted to stress was to oppose making slave States out of the newly acquired territory, not abolishing slavery as it then existed.
from Lincoln speeches at Peoria, Illinois

I have no purpose directly or indirectly to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.
from Lincoln's Inaugural Address

Do the people of the South really entertain fear that a Republican administration would directly or indirectly interfere with their slaves, or with them about their slaves? If they do, I wish to assure you as once a friend, and still, I hope, not an enemy , that there is no cause for such fears. The South would be in no more danger in this respect than it was in the days of Washington.

Letter from Lincoln to A.H. Stephens
Public and Private Letters of Alexander Stephens, p. 150

My paramount object, is to save the Union, and not either destroy or save slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing the slaves, I would do it. If I could save the Union by freeing some and leaving others in slavery, I would do it. If I could save it by freeing all, I would do that. What I do about slavery and the colored race, I do because it helps save the Union.

Lincoln in a letter to Greeley

Mr. Wendell Phillips said Lincoln was badgered into issuing the emancipation proclamation, and after it was issued, Lincoln said it was the greatest folly of his life. President Lincoln in his Emancipation Proclamation evidently had in mind to colonize or segregate the slaves if freed:

"It is my purpose to colonize persons of African descent, with their consent, upon this continent or elsewhere, with the previously obtained consent of the government existing there."

He later said, in discussing the options of colonizing them with segregated areas of Texas, Mississippi and South Carolina:

"If we turn 200,000 armed Negroes in the South, among their former owners, from whom we have taken their arms, it will inevitably lead to a race war. It cannot be done. The Negroes must be gotten rid of."

Ben Butler responded by saying: "Why not send them to Panama to dig the canal?" Lincoln was delighted with this suggestion, and asked Butler to consult Seward at once. Only a few days later, John Wilkes Booth assassinated Lincoln and one of his conspirators wounded Seward.

Racist Genocide in New Orleans Continues: "Like 911 But Add Water"
by liz burbank [revised intro. to article originally published 9/3/05 as "A Catastrophic Success": A Holocaust Shaped by Race]
Katrina was no accident, no surprise, no act of 'mother nature', 'gods', nor the result of 'bureaucratic incompetence' and 'poor communication'. The human and environmental and impact on New Orleans of a hurricane of this magnitude had been scientifically calculated. Rescue and recovery were deliberately withheld, working class Black people militarily imprisoned, forcibly dispersed across the country and murdered by armed state violence.

Black national oppression, and its ideological engine racism, are the lynchpin of u.s. capitalism, built and expanded worldwide by genocide and slavery. Katrina, a major new intensification of North American Black genocide, was a premeditated physical and psychological attack on the Black Nation, part of a strategy [see Brzezinski NSCM 46 below] to destroy the revolutionary strength, cultural cohesion and confidence the U.S. most fears.

Why? A renaissance of Black resistance, the leading edge of resistance in the U.S. the postmodern slavemasters fear will give rise to the leadership of a revolutionary new internationalist movement in the 'homeland' that would help defeat the imperialist global "new world order" increasingly weakened geostrategic situation.

Katrina and its brutal aftermath was engineered to serve the U.S. agenda in two interconnected ways: uprooting, dispersing and destroying the Black Nation, while simultaneously inflaming reliable amerikan racism and patriotic support for a fascist mode of state capitalism -- under the pretext of "rescue, relief and recovery” from a "major casualty-producing event" called a “natural disaster.”

MOUT: "Militarized Operations on Urbanized Terrain."
Mike Davis
"the urbanization of insurgency"ing capacity of high-tech warfare can contain, if not destroy, chronic "terrorist" insurgencies rooted in the desperation of growing megaslums. "The future of warfare," the journal of the Army War College declared, "lies in the streets, sewers, high-rise buildings, and sprawl of houses that form the broken cities of the world."... To help develop a geopolitical framework for urban war-fighting, military planners turned in the 1990s to the RAND Corporation: Dr. Strangelove's old alma mater. RAND, a nonprofit think tank established by the Air Force in 1948, notorious for war-gaming nuclear Armageddon in the 1950s and helping plan the Vietnam War in the 1960s. These days RAND does cities - big time. Its researchers ponder urban crime statistics, inner-city public health, and the privatization of public education. They also run the Army's Arroyo Center which has published a small library of recent studies on the context and mechanics of urban warfare. One of the most important RAND projects, initiated in the early 1990s, has been a major study of "how demographic changes will affect future conflict." The bottom line, RAND finds, is that the urbanization of world poverty has produced "the urbanization of insurgency" (the title, in fact, of their report)...

Israeli advisors were brought in to teach Marines, Rangers, and Navy Seals state-of-the-art tactics - especially sophisticated coordination of sniper and demolition teams with heavy armor and overwhelming airpower - used by Israeli Defense Forces in Gaza and the West Bank [ed: funded by U.S.] Artificial cityscapes (complete with "smoke and sound systems") were built to simulate combat conditions in densely populated neighborhoods of cities like Baghdad or Port-au-Prince. The Marine Corps Urban Warfighting Laboratory also staged realistic war games ("Urban Warrior") in Oakland and Chicago, while the Army's Special Operations Command "invaded" Pittsburgh.Today, many of the Marines inside Fallujah are graduates of these Urban Warrior exercises as well as mock combat at "Yodaville" (the Urban Training Facility in Yuma, Arizona), while Army units encircling Najaf and the Baghdad slum neighborhood of Sadr City are alumni of the new $34 million MOUT simulator at Fort Polk, Louisiana.
...Captain Thomas ("Slumlords: Aerospace Power in Urban Fights") like RAND, is brazenly the Pentagon's massive new investments in MOUT technology and training will surmount all the fractal complexities of slum warfare. One of the RAND cookbooks ("Aerospace Operations in Urban Environments") even provides a helpful table to calculate the acceptable threshold of "collateral damage" (aka dead babies) under different operational and political constraints. The occupation of Iraq...a "laboratory for democracy".. is a laboratory where Marine snipers and Air Force pilots test out new killing techniques in an emergent world war against the urban poor.

The Brzezinski policy memorandum below followed COINTELPRO which, despite destroying the ability of the Black national liberation movement, led by the Black Panther Party, to function, and killing over 30 of its leaders in cold blood, failed to kill the Black led movement that most terrified U.S. rulers as its revolutionary influence spread beyond the ghettos.
This strategy has been systematically implemented and reached full-bloom with Obama whom the white supremacist ruling class trusts to execute its bipartisan strategy for global domination which requires the elimination or cooptation of capitalist rivals and political resistance -- called "terrorism". posted in http://www.burbankdigest.com/node/215

Black Africa and the U.S. Black Movement
Zbigniew Brezinski
This Document is Exhibit 10 of U.S. Supreme Court Case No.00-9587
MARCH 17, 1978

Objective of our policy toward Black Africa is to prevent social upheavals which could radically change the political situation throughout the area. The success or failure of our policy in the region depends on the solution international
and internal issues whose importance of the United States is on the increase.


A multiplicity of interests influences the U.S. attitude toward black Africa. The most important of these interests can be summarized as follows:

If black African states assume attitudes hostile to the U.S. national interest, our policy toward the white regimes; which is a key element in our relations with the black states, may be subjected by the latter to great pressure for fundamental change. Thus the West may face a real danger of being deprived of access to the enormous raw material resources of southern Africa which are vital for our defense needs as well as losing control over the Cape sea routes by which approximately 65% of Middle Eastern oil is supplied to Western Europe.

Moreover, such a development may bring about internal political difficulties by intensifying the activity of the Black movement in the United States itself.

It should also be borne in mind that black Africa is an integral part of a continent where tribal and regional discord, economic backwardness, inadequate infrastructures, drought, and famine, are constant features of the scene. In conjunction with the artificial borders imposed by the former colonial powers, guerilla warfare in Rhodesia and widespread indignation against apartheid in South Africa, the above factors provide the communist states with ample opportunities for furthering their aims. This must necessarily redound to the detriment of U.S. political interests.

Black Africa is increasingly becoming an outlet for U.S. exports and investment. The mineral resources of the area continue to be of great value for the normal functioning of industry in the United States and allied countries. In 1977, U.S. direct investment in black Africa totaled about $1.8 billion and exports $2.2 billion. New prospect of substantial profits would continue to develop in the countries concerned.


Apart from the above-mentioned factors adverse to U.S. strategic interests, the nationalist liberation movement in black Africa can act as a catalyst with far reaching effects on the American black community by stimulating its organizational consolidation and by inducing radical actions. Such a result would be likely as Zaire went the way of Angola and Mozambique.

An occurrence of the events of *1967-68 would do grievous harm to U.S. prestige, especially in view of the concern of the present Administration with human rights issues. Moreover, the Administration would have to take specific steps to stabilize the situation. Such steps might be misunderstood both inside and outside the United States.

In order to prevent such a trend and protect U.S. national security interests, it would appear essential to elaborate and carry out effective countermeasures.
1. Possibility of Joint Action By U.S. Black and African Nationalist Movement.
In elaborating U.S. policy toward black Africa, due weight must be given to the fact that there are 25 millions American blacks whose roots are African and who consciously or subconsciously sympathies with African nationalism.
The living conditions of the black population should also be taken into account. Immense advances in the field are accompanied by a long-lasting high rate of unemployment, especially among the youth and by poverty and dissatisfaction with government social welfare standards.
These factors taken together may provide a basis for joint actions of a concrete nature by the African nationalist movement and the U.S. black community... renewal of the extremist national idea of establishing an "African Republic" on American soil. Finally, leftist radical elements of the Black community could resume extremist actions in the style of the defunct Black Panther Party. ...
Basically, actions would take the form of demonstrations and public protests, but the likelihood of violence cannot be excluded. There would also be attempts to coordinate their political activity both locally and in international organizations.

In the context of long-term strategy, the United States can not afford a radical change in the fundamentals of its African policy, which is designed for maximum protection of national security. In the present case, emphasis is laid on the importance of Black Africa for U.S. political, economic and military interests.

In weighing the range of U.S. interests in Black Africa, basic recommendations arranged without intent to imply priority are:
1. Specific steps should be taken with the help of appropriate government agencies to inhibit coordinated activity of the Black Movement in the United States.
2. Special clandestine operations should be launched by the CIA to generate mistrust and hostility in American and world opinion against joint activity of the two forces, and to cause division among Black African radical national groups and their leaders.
3. U.S. embassies to Black African countries specially interested in southern Africa must be highly circumspect in view of the activity of certain political circles and influential individuals opposing the objectives and methods of U.S. policy toward South Africa. It must be kept in mind that the failure of U.S. strategy in South Africa would adversely affect American standing throughout the world. In addition, this would mean a significant diminution of U.S. influence in Africa and the emergence of new difficulties in our internal situation due to worsening economic prospects.
4. The FBI should mount surveillance operations against Black African representatives and collect sensitive information on those, especially at the U.N., who oppose U.S. policy toward South Africa. The information should include facts on their links with the leaders of the Black movement in the United States, thus making possible at least partial neutralization of the adverse effects of their activity.


The concern for the future security of the United States makes necessary the range of policy options. Arranged without intent imply priority they are:
(a) to enlarge programs, within the framework of the present budget, for the improvement of the social and economic welfare of American Blacks in order to ensure continuing development of present trends in the Black movement;
(b) to elaborate and bring into effect a special program designed to perpetuate division in the Black movement and neutralize the most active groups of leftist radical organizations representing different social strata of the Black community: to encourage division in Black circles;
(c) to preserve the present climate which inhibits the emergence from within the Black leadership of a person capable of exerting nationwide appeal;
(d) to work out and realize preventive operations in order to impede durable ties between U.S Black organizations and radical groups in African states;
e) to support actions designed to sharpen social stratification in the Black community which would lead to the widening and perpetuation of the gap between successful educated Blacks and the poor, giving rise to growing antagonism between different Black groups and a weakening of the movement as a whole.
(f) to facilitate the greatest possible expansion of Black business by granting government contracts and loans with favorable terms to Black businessmen;
(g) to take every possible means through the AFL-CIO leaders to counteract the increasing influence of Black labor organizations which function in all major unions and in particular, the National Coalition of Black Trade Union and its leadership including the creation of real preference for adverse and hostile reaction among White trade unionists to demands for improvement of social and economic welfare of the Blacks;
(h) to support the nomination at federal and local levels of loyal Black public figures to elective offices, to government agencies and the Court.

"I just did a head shot for my new business and I agonized for days (to the point of feeling sick about it) over what to do with my frizzy Portuguese hair. I felt like I should straighten it, because that's 'corporate' and more importantly, easy, but it's not me, and I am supposed to be selling me. I feel more comfortable in my curls, but they are so much harder to get right that I felt like I was taking a huge gamble." ...
