The uneasy equilibrium between U.S. white power and rising resistance

The following is an excerpt of a presentation made by Gaida Kambon, Secretary General of the African People’s Socialist Party at the Sixth Congress of the APSP.

ST. PETERSBURG, FL—To­day in the United States, there exists an unequal equilibrium between the exploitative and op­pressive forces of imperialism and the rising resistance movement of the domestically colonized Afri­can and other non-white subject peoples of the U.S. and the world.
With revolutionary organiza­tion, this uneasy equilibrium could be easily tilted to the favor of the people’s just struggles for na­tional liberation and self-determi­nation—a world free of capitalist exploitation.
In the late 19th century there was no such thing as an “uneasy equilibrium.” White Western im­perialism reigned unchallenged and supreme. By the time of the 1884-1885 Berlin Conference, also known as the Congo Confer­ence, when the “sun did not set on the British Empire,” the pendu­lum was absolutely in the camp of white power colonialism.
This is not the case in 2013. Imperialist rule by oppressor na­tions is being challenged all over the world by the fighting peoples of the oppressed nations.
The U.S. is doing everything in its power, politically and militari­ly to stave off the people’s will and revolutionary struggle to reclaim our stolen resources and dignity.
It seems that the U.S. and all its efforts are a hodgepodge of contradictions on the national and international stages that they nev­er can get right or win. Their last victories were Ronald Reagan’s invasion of tiny Grenada in 1983 and the Barack Hussein Obama-led murder of Osama bin Laden in 2011.
Obama’s “salaam alaikum” speech in Cairo, Egypt was not enough to stop the revolution­ary upsurge in Tunisia and Egypt now known as the Arab Spring. Nor was the lynching of Colonel Gaddafi enough to put down the peoples will to be free and self-determining in Libya. An orga­nized insurgency blossoms there.
In addition, the U.S.—after more than 20 years of the most brutal military aggression imagin­able—cannot put down the insur­gencies in Iraqi or Afghanistan. Even Pakistan won’t bow down totally to U.S. expectations.
The U.S.’s bid to organize their fellow travelers in the United Nations in the ghost hunt for so-called “weapons of mass destruc­tion” in an effort to overthrow the Assad government, and for the white settler Israelis to rule rough­shod over occupied Palestine and the region, has been totally ex­posed.
We also know now that Pal­estinian leader Yasser Arafat was indeed assassinated by poison, and the U.S. and Israel are the usual and prime suspects.
Even the U.S.’s closest ally, Britain, would not unite with the second “weapons of mass de­struction” outright lie for a war of aggression against Syria.
Despite “Black Hawk Being Down,” Barrack Obama still or­dered the assassination of an Af­rican teenager on a U.S. flagged rogue boat in Somali waters that he deemed to be a “pirate.” The efforts to crush the resistance of freedom fighters in that region of Africa and to criminalize our revolution are part of the man­date white power bestowed upon Obama—and he loves it.
U.S. imperialism is faring no better inside its borders. Barack Obama is exposing himself to be what all U.S. presidents must be—a liar and a willing tool of the white ruling class.
The Democrats and the Re­publicans can’t even seem to agree that they are both thug or­ganizations in the service of impe­rialism. The only thing they seem to agree on is their joint support for the Zionist state of Israel and the mass incarceration of Afri­cans.
Malcolm X showed over 50 years ago that the Democratic party was a white power organi­zation, no different from its coun­terpart Republican party.
Obama’s first action after re-election was to put an increased bounty on the head of African freedom fighter, Assata Shakur, and officially designate her as a terrorist, thereby criminalizing the whole African Liberation Move­ment inside U.S. borders.
Obama went to Africa and did a magicians slight-of-hand where he magically shifted the blame of the misery of the people from the colonialists to bad governance by his fellow neocolonialist African heads of state.
All the while Obama was cas­tigating African fathers for being irresponsible, but failing to men­tion U.S. policies that make one out of every eight prisoners in the world an African in the United States.
No response to white vigilante murders, such as the case with Travon Martin, could only win a “Trayvon could have been my son,” statement from the neocolo­nialist U.S. head of state who is an African like Trayvon.
Despite U.S. white power rep­resenting itself in black face, the people’s will to resist oppression and tyranny and colonialism is growing daily.
The African People’s Social­ist Party, through its participation in the Black is Back Coalition for Socialist Justice, Peace and Reparations; through its mass organizations such as the Inter­national People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement (InPDUM), the All African People’s Development and Empowerment Project (AAP­DEP), and the development of the white solidarity formation, the Af­rican People’s Solidarity Commit­tee, are positioning the people’s movement to fight for and win the power.
The African Socialist Inter­national and its economic wing, Black Star Industries, constitute the ingredients to raise up the Af­rican Revolution worldwide.
The “uneasy equilibrium” will swing our way!
All Power to the African Workers and Peasants!
African Internationalism Leads the Way!!

Rape; a weapon of colonialism

The discussion of rape for African people does not begin where the feminist movement, women's rights groups or where even scholars choose to begin their discussions. Their self-serving calls for "sisterhood" and use of phrases such as "we are all in this together," completely ignore the interests of African people.
