Sua'ad (Daughter of Frantz Fanon) [Ajairah1] They keep using the word ‘civilisation’ yet they think that we were uncivilised before colonisation? Civilisation by definition is ‘human society with its well-developed social organisations, or the culture and way of life of a society or country at a particular period in time’

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 one of the most intellectually radical things you can do is search the world for attributes of “civilization” with imperial conquest not present in its “progress”; civilization without imperialism is a standard that can only be met in one region of the non-fiction world

Greg Carr [AfricanaCarr] The #HowardU#HUStudyAbroadKemet2018 team arrives on the Giza Plateau to begin today’s exploration of Old Kingdom sites. Here we are at the Hor em Akhet, also known as the “Sphinx.” The entire complex was used for pharaonic burial rituals and dates back at least 4,600 years. [twitter.com]

Greg Carr [AfricanaCarr] The next time somebody tries to argue about the “race of the Ancient Egyptians,” show them some photo of these four thousand year old human hair wigs. Tight curls and micro braids like this are clearly African. #HUStudyAbroadKemet2018#HairCulture#NaturalAintNothingNew[twitter.com]

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @AfricanaCarr Sometime during my lifetime I look forward reading about Black people finally talking casually and frequently amongst ourselves about more advanced basic topics such as «yes, Cleopatra looked like Lisa Bonet but by her *behavior* with Caesar *and* MarkAnt was she really Black?»

🧙🏾‍♂️🙅🏾‍♂️👩🏾‍🚀🌍 [BmoreDoc] American history is so poorly taught that people do not realize that to enforce the Reconstruction Amendments and Civil Rights laws, it took federal military force.

Reconstruction needed federal occupation of the South.

Desegregating schools required the National Guard.

Josh Myers [ddehewty] If I read another Black poem “longing” for America, I may lose it.

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @ddehewty Langston Hughes gets a pass but any bullshit _after_ the 1930s is pseudo-renaissance, democratic-convention, white-patron poo.

Sua'ad (Daughter of Frantz Fanon) [Ajairah1] Such sensationalist statement is not only analytically unhelpful – it is also irresponsibly dangerous. Violence is not black thing, nor is it the metaphor for irrational, barbaric, ‘primordial’ African violence that the Western psyche seems to have an insatiable need for. [twitter.com]

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 Humanity (African wisdom-based cultures) is based on _biological altruism_; humanity would not exist without this profound love beyond love. Imperialism is based on the fascist “liberty and freedom” to fuck a mufukka up. One is divine womanhood the other is about being a bitch.

the kinte space [KinteSpace] young bruh, i was married to a brown, latina, formally-trained ballet-and-modern dancer so this amateur pole dancing stuff really does deserve my condescension

the kinte space [KinteSpace] young bruh, my formative years were all boys all the time so the gender-inequality damage done to most girls was done before i met them—all the fears, self-censorship, the devaluing, skin-color politics heavy-set in stone, “waiting” for a “strong” man to lift away: me, useless

the kinte space [KinteSpace] young bruh, the OG Roman intent inside the word “proletariat” is that the *pro*duct of your *loins* is born to work for someone else—now it should be senatorially clear why underclass white girls cannot have an abortion
