I dedicate this book as an offering to the life and memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. In January 2019, I consulted King’s spirit, asking him several questions. First among them was where did African Americans go wrong? What caused us to sin (miss the mark), and stray far away from the mandate that he and many others gave their lives for us to follow?

Dr. King began to provide answers to my inquiry, as I spent the next year studying his life. I methodically and systematically, read, reread, fasted, and meditated, over again and again, upon his words. I studied his words precept upon precept, line upon line, here a little, there a little.

Black Political Exodus 2020 resulted from that inquiry and download. This book is not only dedicated to the life and memory of Dr. King but the dialogue throughout the text is analyzed through the historical lens and methodology he employed to fight against white supremacy.

After teaching a seminar at Lincoln University on the writings and speeches of Dr. King, I became intrigued with how much I didn’t know about him. Yes, like most of us, I was familiar with the Dream Speech and his commitment to social justice. My image of him was shaped by the views of those who painted a portrait of a man that appealed to all Americans; one non- threatening to oligarchs and neoliberals on one hand, and on the other hand, a manufactured image of a man loved by all. This was not the man I came to know as I studied his words line upon line.

Dr. King was a complex figure who deeply loved all people, especially Black Americans. He loved them so, that he willingly laid down his life for them.

Peace be upon him. May he be praised in this life, as he is in the hereafter.

I present this offering to my Ori. May it be received and found acceptable in their sight.



I came to this writing project asking one question, “How did African Americans come to be programmed to self-destruct?” My exploration led me to the southern plantations of the United States, which in the 17th century, was where the psychological programming of enslaved Africans began in earnest. The programming began as physical torture to control behavior and demand unquestionable obedience. Later, this method of control was modified and combined with psychological programming, since it was necessary for the enslaved Africans body to remain strong enough to carry out the physical labor demanded of the planter-class.

In Black Political Exodus 2020, we analyze how the programming of enslaved Africans started, and how after four hundred years, its effects are equaling as persuasive. Its impact upon the behavior of most middle-class African Americans continues to have the same negative impact as it did upon most of their ancestors.

Today in the twenty-first century, African Americans are no longer needed for physical labor, yet, are under the worst kind of assault in four hundred years. There is one word that partially explains the vicious and continuous attack against them: propaganda. This is the one word that seems to make the most sense and, in some ways, attempts to at least explain the psychological warfare currently waged against African Americans.

The idea that African Americans have been psychologically programmed begins to explain why people of African descent throughout the world, who have likewise been under the unrelenting attack of White supremacy have also been the victims of a propaganda of terror. This is the only thing that makes sense, unless one believes that Black people are under some kind of cosmic curse, which, I suppose, is also possible? What else explains the dread, the docility and self-censorship that has stagnated Black growth and development for over five hundred years?


The political climate in the United States can be understood by checking our historical record. There is little new about where we are today in the country regarding how politics usually operates. Since the election of Donald Trump many people seem to be suffering from historical amnesia. They think Trump alone is responsible for the cultural divide in America. However, even a brief glance into the historical record shows that Trump is not an aberration, but is in fact, a much clearer reflection of the American norm than was his predecessor, Barack Obama, who was correctly described by the words, “an exaggerated American”,  one who so much “imitated White values and more

The Clyburn Effect on Black Politics


Myths of Progress

The African American community is divided by myths that were intentionally fabricated to create division. For example, the belief that voting gives Black people access to political power is a myth. Once political power is achieved, economic power is then bestowed, which has not happened for African Americans. Economic power is the only respected entity in a capitalist regime, and the mistaken notion that voting alone provides the collective with access to economic power is sheer foolishness.

For example, Clyburn’s subservience to Joe Biden has been the only means to economic power for the individual. The collective may be given a few handouts from Clyburn’s subservience, but his political handlers will not provide his constituents with anything of substance. Trust me, Clyburn knows that the Black collective will not benefit from Biden as President. On the other hand, Clyburn will benefit tremendously from the role he played. Some backdoor benefits and what we call in Philadelphia “drop money,” will find its way to him. Yet, his constituents will remain as poor and destitute as they were before he prostrated himself before Joe.

Clyburn’s shameful act of deference before Biden will not benefit his voters. Police officers will continue to kill unarmed Black men, women and children. They will continue to receive support from their community, and be called heroes, no matter how many Black people they kill. There is no benefit to the collective for  Clyburn’s act of contrition. He alone will receive the few crumbs he so much craves. What else could explain why he would sell out his people and betray his ancestors for trinkets? Clyburn, like his political handler, is possessed by the god of materialism, and him alone does he serve.

Myth of Voter Participation

Neoliberalism is an oppressive ideology manifesting in plain sight without shame. For instance, after the crushing defeat of Hillary in the 2016 presidential election, many liberals are now calling to dismantle the electoral college, which was a compromise made between northern and southern elites after the Revolutionary War. Now the liberals are calling for a one-person vote, which in some ways would mark the beginning of a more representative political system. However, the change-over to a purer form of democracy, (if such a thing is possible) would have little impact on the deplorable condition of African Americans. They would still be controlled by politicians who do not represent their interests. With the oligarchs in full control of the political process, it matters little if the electoral college is abolished. Regardless of whatever system is selected to govern Americans, it will still be controlled by the business class. With the oligarchs in control of the political system, American politics will remain corrupted and beyond repair.

Until we address the myth of democracy, especially the idea that voting matters, African Americans will remain in a state of delusion. The Black Collective does not participate in the political process. Voter participation and Black empowerment are antithetical concepts. For example, many civil righters believed the vote would empower the Black community and give them access to White power. It did not happen. Instead, they were integrated into certain social spaces only, and denied access to real power; economic power. African Americans were given the same illusory access to White power as were South Africans after apartheid. Once apartheid died, it immediately morphed into something new, something more sophisticated, like neoliberalism. Black South Africans were given access to social spaces, and kept far removed from economic empowerment.[DS1] 

King once believed that voting would bring African Americans to the promise land. In a New York Times magazine article in 1965, titled “Civil Rights No. 1: The Right to Vote.” He wrote that “voting is the foundational stone for political action: Our vote would place in congress true representatives of the people who would legislate for Medicare, housing, schools and jobs required by all men of any color.” At least this is what he, along with most Black Americans believed would result after the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. He later described himself as being “over optimistic,” and soon discovered that his “misplaced optimism” was problematic. Most of the civil righters in the struggle were equally overly optimistic regarding the right to vote, without realizing that representative democracy was a sham, and that we actually lived in a propaganda democracy.

It is true that most of the civil righters were greatly deceived. Even though most of the civil righters were indeed true American patriots. They believed in the Constitution, and thought that White men would honor the words written by their forefathers. Yet, King would discover that only Black men believed in the American dream. White men had long showed their disdain for American jurisprudence, which is why they refused to implement the Brown decision; even a decade after its passage, over eighty percent of southern schools remained segregated.

This should have been a lesson to the civil righters who continued to believe that “white men of goodwill,” would do the right thing, and respect the laws established by their fathers. Nonetheless, the fight for integration continued, and there was little time to assess what effect it was having on Black economics and solidarity. Integration, much like multiculturalism today, is an illusion perpetuated mainly by Black people. Every other group in the US prefers nationalism over multiculturalism; a sad lesson African Americans have yet to learn. Fighting for the right to vote only makes sense if it empowers the Collective and grants them greater access to the twenty trillion-dollar plus economy. Otherwise, one’s ability to cast a vote for an individual, who solely represents the interests of the business class is a wasted ballot. Until the masses demand access to a greater share of their labor, voting will remain an empty ritual and entertainment for the elite.

 [DS1]I do not understand these sentences.

Congressmen Jim Clyburn and White Liberals

The Clyburn Effect

Congressman Clyburn’s support for Biden was the quintessential example of the subservient role and function of the Black politicians. Dr. King referred to politicians like Clyburn as “powerless subordinates,” who willingly sell out their own people for a morsel of stale bread. Clyburn is not the only Black politician who can be purchased on the cheap. There are many like him who will betray their community and dishonor the legacy of those who were killed fighting against unprincipled characters like Joe Biden.

Again, it is not entirely the fault of the Black politician that he is so eager to betray his community. He may have initially received the support of his people to get elected to political office. However, one can only maintain that lofty space for any considerable length with the financial support and backing of their political handlers. Clyburn is facing the same dilemma that all Black politicians will encounter if they want to remain in power. In order to maintain their political positions assigned to them, they must kiss the ring of their handler. There is no other way for Black people to run for a major political office, and they have no chances of staying in power without the backing of White oligarchs. These men would never financially support any candidate that is not first vetted and, most importantly, deemed not a threat to the status quo. Therefore, Black people should not be too upset with Clyburn or the Black Mayors, who are impotent at dealing with the criminals ravaging our cities. They all take their orders from their political handlers, who get their orders from white oligarchs, who are the new slave masters.

The Clyburn’s who represent their white masters in the Black communities, were described by King as being “victimized with the delusion that others should be more concerned than oneself about their citizenship rights.” The misplaced idea that White liberals care about Black growth and development is a myth that was exposed fifty years ago at the height of the civil rights struggle. White liberals actually abandoned the movement after they discovered they could not control its leadership. Even today, white liberals refuse to associate with Black organizations they cannot fully control in fact there are White people, or institutions anywhere on earth, that are fully concerned about the wellbeing of Black people. Just because they provide hungry people with bread does not mean they care about Black development. In fact, I personally know many White people who, on the surface, appear to do genuine work on behalf of African Americans. Yet, at a much deeper level of analysis, their involvement could be motivated out of guilt or pity.

Until Black people abandon the myth that someone is coming to save them, millions will continue to fall victim to White barbarism. While Black manufactured leaders like Clyburn lead them to the voting polls, much like a fox leading chickens into its den. Men like Clyburn and Obama, have caused many African Americans to become cynical and disillusioned over politics, especially as an effective medium to support their causes. Until the political system becomes more transparent and accessible to the public, more people will view politics as a mere con game. We need a citizens-appointed independent political czar, who will openly prosecute corrupt politicians and trigger-happy police officers who kill unarmed African Americans with judicial impunity. Unless strong measures are taken by politicians to protect Black lives, the American system of jurisprudence must be viewed as hostile to Black growth and development.

African Americans must refuse placing hope in a corrupt system that believes it has already done enough to assist them. Black Americans must develop the courage and vision to reunite their community, and take control of the communal vetting process. Black people alone, need to decide who will best represent their interests before a White supremacist’s government. If not, more plandemics are certain to catch them off guard, because evidently, they did not learn from the Katrina massacre, where an untold number of Black lives were lost.
