Black Sterling: Black Briton’s Proven Path to Escape Systemic Racism and Subjugation & Operate in an Alternative Economic System
Introduction to ‘Black Sterling’ by Khadijah Ward
“Black people must do for self or suffer the consequences.” — Elijah Muhammed
Elijah Muhammed’s statement is simple yet powerful. He was basically stating that if you, black people, are not self-reliant, but dependent upon the systems of others you will be subject to an oppressive existence with negative outcomes.
The situation of the black man today is evidence that we as a people are not in control of our own community, neither are we responsible for our economic condition and as a result as a nation you are suffering.
As a nation we do not own property, resources or institutions. We are dependent upon euro-centric infrastructures and systems for all of our basic human needs, to include; housing, education, jobs and financial attainment.
These systems upon which you and I rely, execute oppression, injustice, inequality, indignity, brutality, poverty, and even death for some of you or your loved ones. They oppress you to limit your social organisation, financial success and freedom as a nation.
Since the days of slavery, your life has been controlled through systems by rich and powerful men that do not look like you. You are their commodities, the source for their wealth. Essentially you are modern day slaves.
