Black Nationalism

"There’s still two Americas, one Black, one White, separate and unequal."

Black Nationalism, is a culturally variable ideology that advocates social, political, and economic empowerment of black communities and people, especially to resist assimilation into common culture (through integration or otherwise) and maintain a distinct identity. In the 19th century, some proposed that Africans in the United States were a nation within a nation "New Afrika", and that this nation is subject to Internal colonialism. On the societal scale, the ideology is usually progressive but some of its followers can be rather conservative.

Black Nationalism varies in how extreme it is. Many black nationalists seek black empowerment or liberation but do not wish to form a society exclusively for black people. On the more extreme side, Black Separatism wants black people to form their own nation and separate themselves from white people and other non-black races. On an even more extreme end, Black Supremacism believes not only that black people should form a black-only society, but that they are inherently superior to other races, genetically or otherwise, and thus should dominate society.


Haitian Revolution

Black Nationalist ideas started to pop up in America ever since the Haitian Revolution. The enslaved people of St. Dominique (now modern-day Haiti), or the majority lived under a class system, where the white class would be the richest, and the majority of African people would be free slave labour living in below the bare minimum conditions.

The Jacobins failing to negotiate with Reforms, faced 13 years of rebellion (1791-1804) led by Toussaint Louverture and Jean-Jacques Dessalines after the Voodoo conference, the revolt started. After the French came to peace with the Haitians, Louverture's appealed to Napoleon I of his 1801 Constitution. It made him the governor of St-Domingue and forced him to recognize the autonomy of the colony. The following year unfortunately, Louverture was invited to a conference in France. Upon his arrest, he was taken as hostage and he died the next year. Dessalines declared Haiti an independent state. He was emperor for two years before being assassinated. Despite the loss of two leaders, this was the first successful rebellion in the Caribbean, which inspired rebelions all over the Americans, especially for black slaves.

Black Panther Party

The Black Panther Party was founded in Oakland, California, by Afro-Americans Bobby Seale and Huey P. Newton in October 1966. It was designated a self-defense force, and later on became racialized as a far-left organization.

The Black Panthers were Marxist-Leninists who spoke out against the discrimination of Black Americans in the civil rights movement and provided humanitarian needs. More specifically, they were Maoists, who became aquated with mao, after selling his books and writings to rich college students, before realising they agreed with most of the ideas within them. J. Edgar Hoover (former FBI director) said that the Black Panthers were the single biggest threat to the United States. This was during the Vietnam War.

Within the organization, they gave basic human needs to Black communities. They picked Malcolm X's way of fighting struggle over MLK's pacificism.

Throughout American history, they have been regularly demonized, as a militant and overzealous activist group,(often twisting the intents of the Panthers) due to the efforts of organisations such as the FBI, some going so far as to say they were the black equivalent of the KKK. However in recent history, by the more balanced view of the black panthers, has been accepted by the general public.

Personality & Behavior

Black Nationalism has several personalities, but all connected in the struggle of "his people" and hatred for white supermacy. The Black Power movements for example (like Black Panthers), believe that Capitalism exploits the oppression of Afro-American communities and gets along with most left-wing ideologies (especially Mao, Afrsoc and Gaddafi. He is very violent in riots towards police officers and clashes with them. He hates the FBI, and CIA, and the US government in general for eventually sabotaging the Black Power movements and the assassination of Black Panther leader.
