Sunday Word: Beware Of White Power

By Andile Mngxitama White supremacy/racism/anti-blackness is an oppressive power reality which is a moving target. It’s always on the move; always mutating; always assimilating; always adapting – but NEVER changing its real character. It may even make concessions and compromises. Black people have to develop their Black Consciousness (BC) into a living set of tools …

Using BC for the white agenda?

By Andile Mngxitama I just saw a really confused attempt to use Black Consciousness (BC) and Pan Afrikanism to push the Rhodes/Wits/UCT demonization of the black man and his elevation into the enemy, in order to provide cover for white supremacy which causes havoc in the black zone.
