Part Four; African American Liberation and Social Revolution
Nevertheless, this phenomenon called tribe is not the case with the African
American people. They are a new people that were formed by the pressure of the
During this time frame – as the 1960s passed into the 1970s, many documents
were written concerning the African American Question. What expressed the new
polarity most sharp was the reprinting of Harry Haywood’s “Negro Liberation”
and Perry’s “Negro National Colonial Question.” That is to say the latter
publication expressed the political separation of the foremost thinkers of the
proletarian masses – in motion, from the black radical petty bourgeoisie.
The evolution of the African American people was first as a class of slaves
from a mass of colored folks to a people. This process has crossed over and is
further developing. Today the African American people are losing their “
people-ness.” Many Chicano writers over the years have correctly described an
enormous section of the African American people as Black Anglos. This description is
not an insult but an accurate description of chemical fusion. The children of
Atzlan are also in motion and undergoing fusion. The bronzing of America is a
historical process and drives us towards a more perfect Union.
That is to say “they” – the American Union, have entered the beginning of
the beginning of the dissolution of the national factor or their “people-ness.”
So have the Anglo-American people. It is not a question of color but the
logic of the imperial consolidation and then dispersal of peoples and nations.
This dispersal is taking place under conditions of the opening destruction of the
commodity form. This leads directly to the basis of the fourth element.
The fourth and final element is the most elementary and constitutes the
foundation of an indigenous American Marxism. When fundamental things change,
everything dependent upon them must in turn change. Not all at one time, nor does
this imply that change is direct or immediate. What has changed is the
configuration of the material power of production or what Marx calls the quiet
changes in the mode of production. What changes in the mode of production is the
technological regime. Today no one argues that we are leaving industrial society.
This was not the case very long ago or when a section of communist in America
rejected the concept “underclass” and reformulated this as the communist
The injection into the production and communications of electronics –
computers, advanced robotics and digitalized processes, creates a new era of
globalization – world interactivity, and restructures the world commodity and labor
Stated another way: the black masses are not the petty bourgeois mass their
were before, during and immediately after the Second world imperial war. The
old slogan, “black and white unite and fight” was a militant attempt to unite
different classes. What were in fact the proletariat and the petty bourgeois
producer on the land. Here one would do well to read and grasp the logic of
Stalin’s “Concerning the question of the Proletariat and the Peasantry.”
The cardinal sin of the radical petty bourgeoisie of the last period is the
designation of the African American Question as a racial question and not a
modern national colonial question with all its implications for social revolution
and the overthrow of the power of bourgeois property.
In history the African American Question could not be separated from the
question of the framework evolution of the American Union and the plantation
South. The reason is that was the area of their fundamental concentration. Nations
are products of history and as such something in history has to undergo
fundamental change to compel society – a nation, to leap to a different economic and
political formation. Marxism and the National Question – only one of several
monumental achievements of Stalin and Soviet Power has stood the test of time.
Something in history has in fact begun reformulation. The technological
regime is undergoing revolution and the nation - not necessarily the multi-national
state structures (both are not identical) are being shattered on the basis of
the restructuring of the commodity and labor market.
The national colonial question in America has not simply merged with the
question of proletariat revolution and the overthrow of capital. This
reformulation belongs to a period of the past and was the political conclusion of the
October Revolution. This political conclusion is the revolutionary heart or one of
the chambers in the heart of Leninism. Stalin’s “Foundations of Leninism”
correctly formulated this back in 1924.
The question is no longer posed as the strategy of fighting in the rear or
winning the middle strata of imperialism over to the cause of the proletariat.
The national factor is no longer a question of alliance. An alliance means a
political relationship between classes. “Black and white unite and fight” meant
a political alliance.
The African American Question is posed today as a question of communist
revolution in the most imperial of all imperial centers. A new political reality
exists. There no longer exists a black community but rather residential areas
housing African Americans. The “black community” is a historical designation
describing a community where all classes are housed together on the basis of
segregation. No where in America does the black bourgeoisie and the black
proletarians live together in the same neighborhood.
They era of the black leader has ended and his days are drawing to an end.
There will all ways be leaders who are African American, but this is not the
historical meaning of “the black leader.” Stated another way the passivity
(historic bribery) of the working class that produced a political alignment where
the white revolutionaries were more or less isolated from the organizational
forms and structures of the black masses is grounding to an end. Not everywhere
and all at the same time. A new line of march has opened.
Those revolutionaries able to make a leap in their political conceptions – in
their insurgent strategy and tactics, will do very well. The
national-colonial question has given way to the national factor. The communist class has
arisen and for reasons of history it is overwhelmingly black in America. The
national factor cannot be ignored nor can it be understood as a demand for self
determination. The demand for self determination belongs to an expired period of
history. Self determination in the past was expressed as the slaying of Jim
Crow and the right to live as equal members in American society. Self
determination is not reducible to political separation or the bourgeois concept of
Rather demands for self determination have and are emerging as a direct
question of the overthrow of the power of capital. In the last period the demand
for self determination lead to the political reform of the state and social
institutions. Jim Crow is dead. There still exist ideological “racists” but Jim
Crow is dead.
The bourgeoisie as property relations has hit the wall of history. Society
leaps to a new economic and political basis or perish.
Black History Month 2004 – “they” had to give a nigga a month as
appeasement, is a time of rejection of American history as told by the ideologists. Our
history is understood solely from the political standpoint of the most
oppressed and exploited sector of the laboring masses and the evolution of the
The International situation is dangerous. China continues to alter things in
our favor. On a planetary scale the national factor is entering its final
resolution. .Communists are political people and try to miss nothing in the
environment. The people of China have never had any political antagonism with the
African American people or the children of Atzlan. The African American people
have been the most militant supporters of the revolution in China within the
American Union. We unconditionally support revolution and conditionally support
China’s new production capacity and computer industry opens new avenues.
Communist will not longer have to rely upon the various channel within our
bourgeois state in the American Union.
Our greatest benefactor and friend – Soviet Power and Comrade Stalin are lost
Unlike the Indian, the black and bronze cannot be isolated. Rather what
happens is that we assimilate all cultures and people. That is the meaning of
being a new people. Here is the word. China is finally open to us. Our dissolution
is our victory. The process is historic.
Donkeys do not become eagle. Stalin was an eagle. Mice become the eyes of the
eagle. The African American people are not mice. They are a new people on
earth. The black elite is powerful enough to wage international combat with the
reactionary ideologists of the Anglo American bourgeoisie. Within this
ideological conflict the communist insurgent cannot – not, maintain the line of march.
Their social position is intractable.
