AFRICAN CULTURE IS PATRIARCHAL
Pre-Colonial Africa was a Patriarchy fronted by Black Women.
The Black Man was Commander In Chief.
And the Black Woman was Secretary of State.
Everything Principle is Masculine while everything Material is Feminine.
Men are the Initiators, while Women are the Cultivators.
Men give Intent and Women give Consent.
Men deal with Objectives while Women deal with Subjectives.
Men are Logical, while Women are Sensual. Men deal with Logistics, while Women deal with Consensus.
WHAT I AM DESCRIBING IS LITERALLY PATRIARCHY. I don’t care if you don’t like that word, due to feminist misandric propaganda, but that is what we are as an African people. We are a Patriarchal people.
TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT
You wrote a description of an absolutist gender dichotomy which while rhythmic is obscure and limiting.
Obscure in the sense of “Principle/Material; Intent/Consent” as spoken without context explain nothing. Limiting in the sense of “Don’t men cultivate, give consent, deal with subjectives or behave sensually?;” or “Don’t women initiate, give intent, deal with objectives or behave logically?”
You claim to describe “Patriarchy” yet it seems you only wrote out attributes of “Men” and “Women.” Further, what’s “African” here? A lot of these dichotomies are straight out of foreign canons.
I subscribe to Diop’s school of thought where a Patriarchy is Nomadic and a Matriarchy is Sedentary. In this, I conclude like he does that African Cultures are Matriarchal. Why do you say otherwise?
What’s more are you sure you did not mean to write Matriarchy fronted by Men? With all the Kings how do you conclude Africa was fronted by Women?
Black people had the highest marriage rate in the country until the 1950’s when government aid to urban areas said the man could not be in the House.The intent was to destroy the Black family. Farm wives receive government aid but her man can stay home. #TruthHurtsButYouCantBeScaredOfIt #TruthBlackFriday

"Any and all use of the word, “Nigger(s)”. whether it is used by a White person or a Black person (or shade of black), no matter in what context or in what-so-ever tone of voice, translates into the following statement: “Consciously or subconsciously, I am helping to maintain the local, national, global system of Racism."
"What’s going on between the Black man and the Black woman is that neither of us understands how white supremacy works. How it is messing with us as individuals. How it juggs with us when we try to get together to establish something that is called a family. We try to form this thing called family, looking at the magazines and reading how families are supposed to function. But when we can’t duplicate that, frustrations build, which leads to the alienation that exists between Black men and Black women. All because we don’t understand the system. We think we’re living in a democracy and since we’re Americans determining our own destinies, it must be that as individuals we are imperfect. But it’s hard to say that ‘I am the imperfect one,’ so you start to blame the other person. So it’s the ‘no good Negro male" or the ‘no good Negro female’ and ‘what I need is a white woman.’ Society plays that up. ‘Right, Julia, you don’t need a Black man. All you need is a white man to give you a job.’ Or in the movies, ‘Black man, you don’t want a Sapphire, what you want is a white woman.’ Or, ‘Black man, it isn’t cool being a man, what you really want is to be a woman’…The Black man knows that it is easier to be a Black woman than it is to be a Black man any day, because we are not a threat. The system understands that in order to oppress Black people it has to oppress the men. Let the woman do what they want, within limits. I don’t mean that you are unoppressed as a Black woman, but you are not the prime target."

I’m sure some will be offended by this post but such is life…sometimes you gotta keep it real even if your fans don’t like it.
Often times it’s interesting that when we discuss sexism within the black community Black Men are made to be the face of sexism. I have heard a few Black Women refer to black men as the “Most Sexist” Men on earth. That is entirely untrue and unfair. Since slavery its been very convenient for White Men to have Black Women help destroy Black Men. Most Men White,Black, Brown, or Green participate in some form of patriarchy or sexism. These are the systems that White Men created because Europe has basically colonized the world and spread its belief system onto everyone else. Even today White Men own 100% of the industries that promote sexist culture. Black Men haven’t been control of much of anything since African civilizations were broken down. Even today many African nations are manipulated by European powers. When African Men were at the top our societies were either Matriarchal or practiced dual systems where the Men and Women were Balanced. Look into the Kemetic or Dogon societies. Whats my point? All races of men participate in forms of misogyny. But always keep in perspective who created these systems. Black Men are just as much victims of this system as well.
Some Black Feminists do the work of white supremacy and don’t even realize it. Black Men and Black Women have a shared struggle and an individual struggle at the same time. You cannot build black family by exercising animosity towards Black Men, you’ll end up praising and desiring to be with the MEN who started this in the first place…Wait. Nevermind. Also realize that White Women’s struggle and Black Women’s struggle is not the same. White Women talk that die hard feminism because it speaks to their issue. They DO NOT have a RACIAL issue as well. White Women do not come out to protest sexism for Black Women’s issues. Example? Where was the parade of White women when Marissa Alexander (Black Woman) was sentenced to 20 years for firing a warning shot at her abusive husband? NO WHERE TO BE FOUND. Don’t let White Women gas you up into thinking yall share the same struggle “sisters”. Next thing you know she’s up under a black man….*Drops Mic*

I’m about to lose some followers over this…..
Same here. But this is truth.
"The FBI has been able to covertly activate a computer’s camera — without triggering the light that lets users know it is recording — for several years, and has used that technique mainly in terrorism cases or the most serious criminal investigations, said Marcus Thomas, former assistant director of the FBI’s Operational Technology Division in Quantico, now on the advisory board of Subsentio, a firm that helps telecommunications carriers comply with federal wiretap statutes."
I understand that my people are the problem, there is no denying that. Are you suggesting that white people cannot be part of the solution? I am not looking for debate and i apologize if i'm coming off as so. I am just genuinely curious and want to hear different perspectives on the fight for the respect and equal treatment for people of color. I hope that none of my questions or comments have offended you due to my lack of education on this subject.
Sigh, read the book “The Iceman’s Inheritance”.
How can the problem be a part of the solution?
You don’t Know Yourself. You don’t know Why Whites are a problem. You don’t know How Whites are a problem. And get this Whites are NOT a problem for themselves.
Today, you are enslaving Black people in America. See the 13th Amendment. You do no have a problem with this. You don’t.
Do you KNOW why Corporations ignore Global Warming? Here’s a hint, an excerpt from an article entitled “Capitalism in Wonderland,”
Thomas Schelling, a recipient of the Bank of Sweden’s Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, and one of Lomborg’s eight experts in the Copenhagen Consensus, is known for arguing that since the effects of climate change will fall disproportionately on the poorer nations of the global South, it is questionable how much in the way of resources the rich nations of the global North should devote to the mitigation of climate trends. Here one can’t help but be reminded of Hudson Institute planners, who in the process of proposing a major dam on the Amazon in the early 1970s contended in effect—as one critic put it at the time—that “if the flooding drowns a few tribes who were not evacuated because they were supposed to be on higher ground, or wipes out a few forest species, who cares?” Similarly, while chief economist of the World Bank, Lawrence Summers, now Obama’s top economic advisor, wrote an internal World Bank memo in which he stated: “the economic logic behind dumping a load of toxic waste in the lowest-wage country is impeccable and we should face up to that.” He justified this by arguing: “The measurement of the costs of health-impairing pollution depends on the foregone earnings from increased morbidity and mortality. From this point of view a given amount of health-impairing pollution should be done in the country with the lowest cost, which will be the country of the lowest wages.”
I don’t know if you fully grasp what is written here. You are lied to that Global Warming is a myth; but the corporations (Europeans) spreading the lies say Africans are the main victims so who cares?
Said differently, here’s Napoleon,
My decision to destroy the authority of the blacks in Saint Dominque (Haiti) is not so much based on considerations of commerce and money, as on the need to block for ever the march of the blacks in the world
Realistically, White folk will likely kill you if you work toward Black progress. It’s not a joke.
Africans and Europeans should be separate. Your talk is confusing Africans. You don’t KNOW your people, you don’t KNOW our people, yet you claim to want to be a problem solver. You have no VISION based in REALITY yet you are questioning me on how I can help you bring about something YOU want.
Your community has PEDOPHILIA, RAPE, ALCOHOLISM, GENOCIDES, DOMESTIC ABUSE, HOMOSEXUALITY, INDIVIDUALISM, DRUG ADDICTION, POLICE BRUTALITY, kwk yet somehow you don’t focus on addressing those as opposed to sharing those.
Go to a Museum and look at the stolen art of Africa. Notice the symbolism, the wealth, the beauty, the balance and consider what kind of COMMUNITY created that art and what kind of people they became after your people invaded.
We want to be about the African Man for the African Woman organized around an African Way of Life. Beside from reading the book, and knowing more of yourself, you can tell Black folk to stick to their own and how White folk will never advance them. Some Africans share with me how they were offended when first they heard that but after reflection they figured it’s a decent person who tells it like it is.
In other words, stop dreaming this myth, ‘cause you are confusing people. Keep it ‘real.’ White folk ain’t looking to liberate Blacks and White folk can only destroy Black blood in their ‘kindness.’ We want to be pure.
