>The African American Left seems to be more in tune with the Third World
Left. Read the specches of the Malcomb X or the anti-war speeches of King (for
which he was persecuted beyond his non-viloent civil rights leadership which
he appeared to be losing unloess his adopted resistanced to the Vietnam War.)
Many political activitists have different priorities for liberation
struggle that are drastically different than those of the Western anti-communist
The intersection of the victory of the people of China . . . under the
leadership of Mao ZeDung and the Communist Party of China . . . with the upsurge
of the struggle of the African American people between 1949 and the mid 1970s
. . . Speaks for itself. The Watts Rebellion of 1965 and then Detroit 1967
ushered in a new level of social struggle in the American Union and completed
the encirclement of US imperial by the fighting colonial masses.
It just so happens that the movement of the African American people peaked
almost precisely with the death of Chairman Mao. Political restructuring in
China and changes in many of its economic policies are following a logic of
history just being disclosed. How can all these various movement through the
world peak at the same time if we are not dealing with profound historical
Even if we cannot yet describe the logic we are dealing with something more
than "socialism" versus "capitalism" . . . and who writes the most clever
ideological statement. Then the national factor baffles the American Marxists
for reasons of our history development.
Example of confusion: Henry as an individual and Chinese is part of a
historical configuration called the "overseas" Chinese and their social and
economic role in history . . . for about a thousand years or so.
Comrade Lou as Jewish and Jews scattered throughout the world do not mirror
the relationship of the over sea China to China or the relationship of Jews
to . . . what . . . America. This is not to deny centuries of bloodletting
and murder of Jews as Jews. Something else is be stated at attempting critical
unraveling of social processes.
Overseas Chinese impact China for reasons of history. Jews impact what
country in history? Nor is there an equivalent of overseas Chinese as social,
political and economic history . . . amongst the African American people. The
African American people are not African that immigrate to America and assimilate
that which is American. That is to say African American did not come from
Nigeria or Africa as such in the sense of over sea Chinese coming from China as
African Americans were created in the American Union as a people. I have an
obligation to make it clear that at this point in history an enormous segment
of the black bourgeoisie adopts the political posture of the most fascistic
reactionary Anglo American politicians and rulers and say the solution to the
social position of the African American is more jails . . . a larger police
force and half the black politicians favor practical segregation because it
consolidates their political basis as "black leaders."
"Build a big housing project for them . . . the blacks . . . and consolidate
10,000 votes for me" is how they cater to bourgeois property and the Anglo
American imperial bourgeoisie.
"Black mutherfucking rat ass . . . genuflecting . . . self seeking . . ."
Nor are Jews analogous to Italians . . . who generally come from Italy. This
is merely the complexity of the national factor.
History itself makes the issue of China sensitive . . . not the individual
thinker. The over sea Chinese . . . even when assimilating the culture of the
host country remains an "over sea Chinese" as a curve of economic development
. . . historical culture and the reality that is China. There is no factor
such as this amongst African American's and they tend to see the world very
In relationship to themselves (African Americans) and then Italians . . .
they more than less conform to the Anglo Americans . . . despite the
glorification and falsification in movies like the Godfather. Within the Anglo American
people is a pecking order based of the various waves of European immigration
. . . with the English tending to be at the top.
Nevertheless . . . was I the only one that saw "Jungle Fever?"
It gets tricky because at this stage in the evolution of the American Union
the lower class tend to not manifest any radical difference in what was once
called national character of national peculiarity. This social process is
also going to impact the over seas Chinese in America . . . not that China have
become a significant economic and world power and trader with America.
There are aspects of the Jewish Question that intersect and mimic the
development curve of the African American in the sense Jews in America have
immigrant here from everywhere and possess and retain commercial ties not based in
the equivalent of a China. On the other hand African Americans do not possess
a commercial tie connection because they were basically created as slaves and
further evolved as a people in America.
In other worlds China can pressure the American government over the murder
of a Chinese . . . regardless of how many generation the Chinese may have been
in America. This is possible through China existing as China and as a world
power. When an African American . . . and interestingly a Jew in America is
murdered . . . where is the economic and political basis in foreign
governments to pressure the American government?
Israel is a new sociological phenomenon - in my opinion, and I tend to stay
away from equating the Jewish Question with Israel . . . because I believe it
is connected with the earliest formation of commodity trade and what would
become the role of the merchant.
We revolutionaries in the Anglo American nation . . . no matter what our
color or peculiar curve in assimilating the Anglo . . . have a terrible debt to
pay to history. Our first task is always to clarify the national factor. In
other words the over sea Chinese conform to history rooted in China . . . with
the longest and continuous unbroken history . . . perhaps on earth.
Words make a difference and in America the words "all men are created equal"
does not mean what a literal translation of American English yields.
Everything I read is read from the standpoint of the historical curve of world
history as I understand it . . . which is not very much.
We Yankees . . . have this incredible knack in not just tripping over our
own feet . . . but dragging down several other dancers on the dance floor. Then
we wonder why no one wants to dance with us and on the same floor?
One must learn how to dance not based on themselves but how other peoples
"Where do you dance Sandman?"
(The Cotton Club movie . . . Sandman was that brillant tap dancer played by
Gregory Hines . . . working under conditions of Jim Crow . . . and making a
fistful of money . . . far more than the lowest sector of the proletariat).
All slavery is not created equal and this includes wage slavery and
industrial socialism is wage slavery . . . but a step in the right direction.
I have to learn to dance and do not mind moon walking my ass away from a
wrong political position . . . like when I had an epiphany and thought I had the
right to speak on whether or not the CPC allows capitalist to be party
members. From a brief moment I actually thought I was a member of the CPC and then
I forgot that we always had members with means in our group. That was my
chauvinism coming out . . . But I asked for forgiveness.
