Elite Brainwashing, The Last Stage Of Mental Slavery

Elite Brainwashing, The Last Stage Of Mental Slavery

Colonial Missionary Schools in Africa Were brainwashing Institutions

In 1980, when I was younger about 8 years old, I went visiting a family friend but when I arrived at their house there was nobody at home. Then, I decided to wait in their sitting room. As I sat there waiting for any of the family members to come out, my eyes caught a picture hanging on the wall. The picture was that of a man in dreadlocks and I did not know who he was. Since I knew everybody living there I thought to myself this picture looks different. So, I decided to walk closer to the picture to look at it up close. As I walked closer to the wall, just about 2 feet to it I felt something like a magnetic field which kind of held me in one position and I began to look at the picture up close and personal. The picture was personal to me because that was the first time I saw someone in dreadlocks. As I stood there face to face with the picture, something beamed from it's eyes to my eyes. Then, I began looking at the picture eyeball-to-eyeball. As I continued looking at it, the picture’s eyeballs rolled just like that of a living human, and it began to smile- literally!. I was so afraid and I had to run away from the room because it scared me. I've never seen such before!. This's just one of many of such bizarre experiences that I've had since I was young, and I still do experience similar mysteries in my life.

It took me many years to realize what just happened was an initiation into the body of an army to war against spiritual wickedness, principalities and powers that control the world's system of things. 

Who was the person on that picture?

After this incident, I kept on wondering who was on that picture because I still did not know who was on the picture. I didn’t know his or her name until 1994 when I was already grown. It happened that when I left the village and came to the city I started selling CDs (compact disc). That was my first business. I have always sold Bob Marley's CDs but I didn't care about his music. To me, he was just one of those musicians and I didn't think there was anything special about his music. But on one good day, I came across this CD of Bob Marley titled "Kaya" that I've never sold or seen before. Behold, when I saw the picture on the CD I immediately had a flashback and I remembered perfectly it was the same picture on the wall that smiled at me when I was younger many years ago. That was how I made a connection with the spirit of Bob Marley and began listening to all his CDs. Finally, I fall in love with Bob Marley songs because I realized it was a gospel message from God.

Back to the topic: Elite brainwashing, the last stage of mental slavery.

The brainwashing of elites of third world countries is the last stage of mental slavery.

This message is not about me but about Bob Marley, mental slavery, and white supremacy, it’s modus operandi in colonial and post-colonial Africa, and how Marley incredibly understood it’s operation without a university degree. Bob Marley was a super-human to have known this. He's a spirit!.

Bob Marley
(This picture smiled to me when I was a kid)

Elite Brainwashing - a Disease Prophesied by Bob Marley

In one of his interviews Bob Marley was asked; do you regret not going to school? And he replied saying NO. Then, the interviewer asked him; WHY? And Bob Marley replied saying, "if I was schooled I would've been a damn fool". It's over 20 years I watched the documentary where Bob Marley made the above comment. All along, I didn't understand what Marley meant until I grew up and was so fortunate to receive a revelation in 2012, in which I was told why Africa is technologically backward and poor. That revelation changed my life and have inspired me to write songs, write a book, register a charity. It also challenged me to keep researching as I try to get to the root of the problem of Africa. 

This research had led me to the shocking but sad realization  that colonial western education was set up in Africa not to educate the people but as a brainwashing institution. Colonial missionary schools were not separable from colonialism. It was one and the same thing!. It was designed to carry on the works of slavery and colonialism. It was invented to carry-on the spread of mental slavery in order to undermine African opinions, heritage, worldview, history, e.t.c. The colonial and post-colonial model of education that we still practice today is nothing but a process to get Africans trained to rebuke their Africaness but instead embrace western ideals. Believe it or not, it was designed to strip us of our Africaness and make us consider ourselves inferior to a white man. Western education is all part of a colonial instrument designed to keep control of the mind of an African.

Colonialism has not come to an end, it is still in operation as intellectual slavery and it will not end until third world countries create their own model of education, devoid of western influence. Western missionary schools in all third world countries which is where our modern educational curriculum came forth was all part of colonialism. It was originally set up as a brainwashing institution. This curriculum and it's value system must be scraped all over Africa as it's system of education does not allow African students to conceptualize a subject or topic. It kills real learning and gives junk education as it's produce.

Using education as a tool, the British and French have made sure that if you're an African physicist, you'll only be a physicist on paper. And if you're an African chemist, you'll only be a chemist on paper. This's why Africa cannot develop industrially. And this is why even if you travel to US or UK with an African awarded Ph.D., masters degree, e.t.c they will not acknowledge it over there but will ask you to repeat classes because they know what you have is a substandard education. By the way, the act of asking African certificate holders to repeat classes in itself is all part of the game to make you feel inferior. This's what Bob Marley was talking about!.

It is not surprising then why Bob Marley in one of his song urged Africans and indeed all black people to "emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our mind".

Mental slavery is what Fela Anikulapo Kuti called "follow-follow". And I call is elite brainwashing.

Fela Anikulapo Kuti
(He called Mental slavery follow-follow)

Elite brainwashing is real, and this clandestine western scheme is happening under our nose, of course without our knowledge. This phenomenon is so incorporated into the minds of Africans and continues to be a threat to Africans and other third world countries.

What is mental slavery?

Mental slavery is the act of controlling the mind of Black people. It’s a very sophisticated scheme to get black people to continue to behave like field slaves and be subject to white man's control even though you're free and no longer in chains. To hide it's ugly self, it’s operation is subliminally incorporated in the system of education itself in third world countries, and therefore, in schools as well as in the media; TV, radio, newspapers, speeches, government policies, e.t.c.

The manifestation of mental slavery

(1). It is believed in Africa that if you school in Britain, or the USA, you'll automatically become more intelligent than someone who schooled; say in a university in Kenya. This phenomenon alone is the reason people who schooled abroad get jobs more easily than someone who schooled in Africa, even when the person schooled in Africa is more intelligent and better for the job than the western schooled.

(2). It is believed in Africa that you'll automatically become rich if you travel to the USA or Europe. Many Africans believe there’s no poor man in USA or Europe because it’s a white man’s country and money grow on trees over there.

(3). Mental slavery is what makes you think that every white man is educated, when in fact you'll find many stark illiterates in western countries as well.

4). Many years of slavery and colonialism has made many Africans believe that God or Jesus is a white man while Satan or devil is a Black man, when in fact, the bible itself is littered with verses after verses suggesting that Jesus was a Black man. Jesus Christ was a black man and was killed because of the same old persecution black people have endured from all parts of the world since time immemorial. Jesus Christ was killed for the same reason Martin Luther King was killed, He was killed for the same reason Walter Rodney was killed, He was killed for the same reason Malcolm X was killed, He was killed for the same reason Nelson Mandela was sentenced to death, He was killed for the same reason western powers unseated Kwame Nkrumah from power, He was killed for the same reason every other black hero suffered attacks. Jesus Christ was killed for being a threat like the people listed above once were. He was killed for being a black hero!. Now, note that I am not a religious person and I am not interested in religion, rather, all I am saying is that the Jesus described in the bible was black, because the bible itself says so. See Jesus Christ was a blackman.

5). Mental slavery is what makes many Africans believe that a Manchester United Vs Arsenal football match in far away United Kingdom is more important than an Enyimba Vs Kano pillars match in Nigeria.

6). Mental slavery is what makes a beautiful African man or woman to bleach his/her skin to make it white since he/she believes white skin is better than black skin. Manifestations of mental slavery are too many to mention.

(7). Mental slavery is what makes you believe that every item imported from Europe, US, is more superior than that produced in Africa.

(8). Mental slavery is what makes you consider someone that speaks English or French fluently as an intelligent person, even though you may be more intelligent than him/her.

What is follow-follow?

Follow-follow is an inferiority complex/mentality that makes Africans copy anything from western nations without asking a question. Follow-follow is what makes you think something must be better, cool, true just because a white man does it or said so. It's what makes Africans copy anything from western countries; music, lifestyle, fashion, government policies, intonation, e.t.c.

What is elite brainwashing?

Elite brainwashing is the last stage of mental slavery. It's the last quest by western nations to control the mind of African elites, and indeed all third world countries. Neo-colonialism incorporates elite brainwashing. Elite brainwashing is not new but it’s a re-invented and ongoing clandestine policy by the west to brainwash elites, not only in Africa but in South America, the Middle East and parts of Asia. This clandestine policy ensures that elites of third world countries are transformed to westerners mentally. That's making them an African by look but a white man by mind. What makes this extremely very dangerous is because it is targeted at the elites, African leaders and leaders of third world countries worldwide. It's ultimate goal is to put a government in the pocket of western nations, then the leader of such a nation will, in turn, have citizens automatically embrace anything western.

(1). Ever wondered why your brother or sister who traveled to America or Europe to study was enticed not to return to Africa to practice his/her career at home?

(2). Ever wondered why African politicians will steal money from Africa then run to Europe or America to keep it?

(3). Ever wondered why every mother from third world countries now want to travel to the US to give birth?

(4). Ever wondered why radio presenters in your country speak in a foreign accent?

(5). Ever wondered why an African parent will train his/her children not to speak our native language but will instead train them to speak English or French?

(6). Ever wondered why your ministers and government officials travel to Europe and US at the slightest need for a medical check-up?

The above are elite brainwashing in action!.

The whole phenomenon of propagating mental slavery is rooted right in the school curriculum in African schools even today!.

What Kwame Nkrumah said about the western model of education

Indeed, Kwame Nkrumah noticed the problem with education in Africa. After observing that colonial missionary schools curriculum was Euro-centric, and that it carefully excluded African religion, culture, and history, he said ‘’under such a system of education the youth of Africa is not prepared to meet any definite situations of the changing community except those of the clerical activities and occupations for foreign commercial and mercantile concerns’’.

And he concluded by saying ’any educational program which fails to furnish criteria for the judgment of social, political, economic, and technical progress of the people it purports to serve has completely failed in its purpose, and has become an educational fraud’’. This’s exactly what Bob Marley was talking about!.

Colonial missionary education and it's copied model in Africa is a fraud!. It’s all part of slavery/colonialism!. African academics, educationists, should begin questioning everything taught Africans both then and now. We must create our own model of learning, and we must begin un-learning so much of the rubbish that has already been packed into our minds courtesy of many years of slavery and colonialism.

As I continue the research on the problem with education in Africa, it's becoming clearer to me by the day that education in Africa and indeed all third world countries was set up as a brainwashing institution and not something to benefit the indigenous people.

I'll like to prove the above with physical evidence.

Evidence from artworks in sculpture by Africans before slavery proves that Africa had a system of education with a curriculum created by we Africans. This education and it's method of teaching and learning was completely African oriented, and by the time you pass through it, you'll come out as an African educated and not a sort of Euro-Afro hybrid intellectual. What I mean is you'll come out original like Japanese or Chinese or Russians people do today.

Sculpture from Benin kingdom dated 1200- 1400 AD

Look at the dexterity of this piece of art!. Do you think the person that carved this in 1200 AD didn’t pass through a well-established education about carving? Whoever made the above piece of artwork in 1200 ADs from Benin kingdom Nigeria was a highly educated person in sculpture. It would have been impossible for an illiterate to create such a masterpiece at that time. Remember, it was made with bare hands!. But there's no doubt that whoever designed it was well schooled about the art of sculpture, which is still being offered in colleges/universities today. As a matter of fact, Europeans were so marveled at Benin kingdom artworks that they believed they fell from the sky or made by the gods, and not by Africans. See for yourself as they confess in the videos below.

Bronze cast work from ancient kingdom of Benin

More Ancient art works from Benin kingdom

The reason I'm pointing this out is because for centuries we Africans have been schooled to believe that white man brought us education and civilization, when in fact we Africans were strong on our own feet academically, much better economically and prosperous as a people before our unfortunate contact with Europeans. We were talented and educated builders (technologists), and with little resource could create anything, until our unfortunate contact with Europe. It’s clear this capability that we had attracted the envy of Europeans who destroyed us as a people. Remember, when you’re on top there’s envy..…. Nas. 

In the second video above, you could see clearly that the British envied the ancient prosperous Benin kingdom and sought to destroy them. It’s also evident in all the above videos that there was no significant difference between development in Europe and Africa by the time Europeans made contact with us. 

When the Dutch first visited Benin kingdom, the Dutch expedition leader was so shocked by development he saw in Benin kingdom, and he wrote in his jotter describing his observation thus ‘’ The town seem to be very great. When you enter into it you go into a great broad street, well paved, which seems to be seven or eight times broader than the Warmoes street in Amsterdam. 

The king’s palace is a collection of buildings which occupy as much space as the town of Harlem, and which is enclosed with walls. There are numerous apartments for the Prince’s ministers and fine galleries, most of which are as big as those on the exchange at Amsterdam. They are supported by wooden pillars encased with copper, where their victories are depicted, and which are carefully kept very clean. 

The town is composed of thirty main streets, very straight and 120 feet wide, apart from an infinity of small intersecting streets. The houses are close to one another, arranged in good order. These people are in no way inferior to the Dutch. They wash and scrub their houses so well that they are polished and shinning like glass‘’.

The above was the report that a Dutch expedition leader sent back to Europe when the Dutch first made contact with the ancient Benin kingdom. And this scenario wasn't peculiar to Benin Kingdom. The Ashanti king in ancient Ghana kingdom was so rich that his official seat was made of REAL gold. Africa was extremely very prosperous before Europe made contact with us. Ghana kingdom, Zulu kingdom, e.t.c.

Question is; why are we no longer building?

Answer: Education has been messed up in Africa. The previous system of education that we had, I mean the pre-colonial model of education that was grounded in African ideals, that saw the Benin kingdom and Egyptians build architectural wonders has been stripped away by imperial powers and replaced with a brainwashing colonial model of education to make Africans forever inferior. See intellectual slavery, the worst legacy of colonialism.

Built around 2630 BC. Over 2,000 years before Christ!.

Do you think the people that designed the pyramid in  2630 BC were not educated? The Egyptian pyramid was built long before Europeans made contact with Africa. To build this pyramid even today requires an advanced knowledge of mathematics, structural design, physics, geometry. An uneducated people could not have built the pyramid!. 

And remember, the pyramid was built by black Africans and not Africans of Arab descent. Because all parts of the African continent and even some parts of the Middle East were being populated by black Africans at the time the pyramid was built. There was no part of Africa that non-black people lived at that point in time. Ancient Egyptians of the pharaoh era were black people. See The True Israelites of The Bible Were Black People Or ancient Israelites & Hebrews were black people. Or How Jesus Christ became a whiteman 

For thousands of years, Africa was the center of learning and knowledge. Indeed, the first 3 universities in the world were all located here in Africa. They include Fez university in Morocco (north-west Africa), Al-Azhar University in Egypt (north-east Africa), Sankore University in Timbuktu, Mali (west Africa). These universities predate almost all European universities and indeed any other in the world. In fact, Europeans and Asians studied in Africa and they said so. Pythagoras, a Greek Mathematician wrote that he studied Mathematics in Africa along with many other Greek intellectuals of old. We could have actually sustained our development, if slavery did not happen. 

See Guinness World Records for the oldest school in the world

In the face of hard evidence, Europeans at least admit that Fez university in Morocco is the oldest educational institution in the world. But, what they don't even know is that Sankore university in Mali predates Fez university in Morocco. Its so sad nobody knows how many of such universities that must have been scattered all over Africa, but forgotten by history.

I' am certain we would have been like Japan or even better, because many parts of Africa were already ahead of white people before slavery. How sad, western education after subduing Africans, created a brainwashing education to teach us they gave us what we actually gave them!. And the problem is even so called educated people; including PhD holders in Africa believe them.

Brainwashing of Africans is the origin of white supremacy

The given links are research works based on facts as you can see for yourself. But, today those facts have been doctored through brainwashing education and the real protagonists renamed, deleted from the history books or facts twisted to favour the west. 

Indeed, it's because we Africans allowed ourselves to be manipulated by foreigners that we're in the situation we find ourselves today. We accept whatever the west tell us; hook, line, and sinker. African academics and educationists; a product of fraudulent colonial education do not question anything imposed by western nations. As far as they’re concerned, anything a white man do is the best and anything he say is true and not to be challenged.

Let me give another example of brainwashing education

Mungo Park
(Mungo Park did not discover the river Niger)

In school, we were told that Mungo Park discovered the river Niger.

But now I've grown old and I dispute that claim. Mungo Park was born in 1771, and before he was born, local Gambians, Senegalese, and Malian fishermen had been fishing and trading along the river Niger for centuries. How could Mungo Park have discovered the river Niger; when he was born in 1771?

Before he was born, Malian and Senegalese fishermen knew the river inside out like Niger Deltans know the creeks of the Delta region. Indeed, Mungo Park did encounter many indigenous African people while on his voyage along the river. After Mungo Park died along the river, the following is what’s written in part of his biography ‘’The British government engaged Isaaco (an indigenous tour guide) to go to the Niger to ascertain Park's fate. At Sansanding, Isaaco found Amadi Fatouma (another indigenous person) the guide who had gone downstream with Park, and the substantial accuracy of the story he told (about how Mungo Park died) was later confirmed by the investigations of Hugh Clapperton (British man) and Richard Lander (British man).

Amadi Fatouma stated that Park's canoe had descended the river as far as Sibby without incident. After Sibby three canoes chased them and Park's party repulsed them with firearms. A similar incident occurred at Cabbara and again at Toomboucouton. At Gouroumo seven canoes pursued them. One of the party died of sickness leaving four white men, myself, [Amadi] and three slaves (three unnamed slaves were also part of Mungo Park’s tour guide). Each person (including the slaves) had 15 musquets apiece, well loaded and always ready for action. After passing the residence of the king of Goloijigi 60 canoes came after them which they repulsed after killing many natives. Further along they encountered an army of the Poule nation and kept to the opposite bank to avoid an action. After a close encounter with a hippopotamus they continued past Caffo to an island where Isaaco was taken prisoner. Park rescued him, and 20 canoes chased them. This time they merely asked Amadi for trinkets which Park supplied. At Gourmon they traded for provisions and were warned of an ambush up ahead’’. (words in blue are mine)

As you can see from the above link, Mungo park eventually died along the river and was buried by indigenous African people. 

So, my question to Nigerian educationists and academics is; how could Mungo Park have discovered the river Niger; when Africans were the one showing him the routes along the river? Must white people write our own history?

I feel so sad that African educationist and academics just fold their hands and allow foreigners to write our own history. But, how can I really blame you? This’s of course, a result of the brainwashing education obtained from western models.

Well, Mungo Park may have discovered the river Niger, but he only did that for British people and not for Africans, because Africans have known the river even before he was born. Therefore, learning in school that Mungo Park discovered the river is an academic fraud against Nigerians!. Do you now understand what Kwame Nkrumah meant by educational fraud? Do you now understand what Bob Marley meant?

The ancient Benin kingdom arts, the Egyptian pyramid and the Mungo Park example are just a few of such. Such examples are littered in history books and in other subjects, and learning such is toxic education. As you can see, western education is designed to make Africans feel and look inferior. The original goal was to strips us of our Africaness as a people and make us educated fools. It effectively makes you a sub-human who must look up to a higher reasoning for knowledge.

Education acquired from western curriculum or western model is junk education!.

Again, my question to African educationists and academics is; must we wait for white people to tell us what to believe? Can't we Africans create our own knowledge base of what to and what not to believe? But then I remember it can’t be done because creating our own system of education will not require you but will require someone who wasn't educated through the same system.

In order for Africa to develop, we must create a new model of education that’s grounded in African philosophy and history, a model of education without colonial hangovers, the same model of education the Japanese, Chinese, Koreans, Russians have used to acquire knowledge to build technological wonders and went to the moon without western influence. I am talking about a model of education that will work for Africa!.

I spit on African leaders.
I vomit on African educationists.
I spit and vomit on African elites.

African elites are fools!.

The Capitalist Network That Control The World's Economy

The Capitalist Network That Control The World's Economy

The global economic slavery.

Here's a well researched paper of 147 companies that control the economy of the world.

Short version below.

As protests against financial power sweep the world this week, science may have confirmed the protesters’ worst fears. An analysis of the relationships between 43,000 transnational corporations has identified a relatively small group of companies, mainly banks, with disproportionate power over the global economy.

The idea that a few bankers control a large chunk of the global economy might not seem like news to New York’s Occupy Wall Street movement and protesters elsewhere. But the study, by a trio of complex systems theorists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, is the first to go beyond ideology to empirically identify such a network of power. It combines the mathematics long used to model natural systems with comprehensive corporate data to map ownership among the world’s transnational corporations (TNCs).

“Reality is so complex, we must move away from dogma, whether it’s conspiracy theories or free-market,” says James Glattfelder. “Our analysis is reality-based.”

From Orbis 2007, a database listing 37 million companies and investors worldwide, researchers pulled out all 43,060 TNCs and the share ownerships linking them. Then they constructed a model of which companies controlled others through shareholding networks, coupled with each company’s operating revenues, to map the structure of economic power.

The work, to be published in PLoS One, revealed a core of 1318 companies with interlocking ownerships (see image). Each of the 1318 had ties to two or more other companies, and on average they were connected to 20. When the team further untangled the web of ownership, it found much of it tracked back to a “super-entity” of 147 even more tightly knit companies.

“In effect, less than 1 per cent of the companies were able to control 40 per cent of the entire network,” says Glattfelder. Most were financial institutions. The top 20 included Barclays Bank, JPMorgan Chase & Co, and The Goldman Sachs Group.

Crucially, by identifying the architecture of global economic power, the analysis could help make it more stable. By finding the vulnerable aspects of the system, economists can suggest measures to prevent future collapses spreading through the entire economy. Glattfelder says we may need global anti-trust rules, which now exist only at national level, to limit over-connection among TNCs. George Sugihara of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California, a complex systems expert who has advised Deutsche Bank, says the analysis suggests one possible solution: firms should be taxed for excess interconnectivity to discourage this risk.

One thing won’t chime with some of the protesters’ claims: the super-entity is unlikely to be the intentional result of a conspiracy to rule the world. “Such structures are common in nature,” says Sugihara.

The Origin, And Modus Operandi Of Mental Slavery

The Origin, And Modus Operandi Of The British To Keep Blacks in Perpetual Mental Slavery

This speech was said to have been delivered by Willie Lynch on the bank of the James River in the colony of Virginia in 1712. Lynch was a British slave owner in the West Indies. He was invited to the colony of Virginia in 1712 to teach his methods to slave owners there.

Willie Lynch 1712.


Gentlemen. I greet you here on the bank of the James River in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and twelve. First, I shall thank you, the gentlemen of the Colony of Virginia, for bringing me here. I am here to help you solve some of your problems with slaves. Your invitation reached me on my modest plantation in the West Indies, where I have experimented with some of the newest, and still the oldest, methods for control of slaves. Ancient Rome would envy us if my program is implemented. As our boat sailed south on the James River, named for our illustrious King, whose version of the Bible we cherish, I saw enough to know that your problem is not unique. While Rome used cords of wood as crosses for standing human bodies along its highways in great numbers, you are here using the tree and the rope on occasions. I caught the whiff of a dead slave hanging from a tree, a couple miles back. You are not only losing valuable stock by hangings, you are having uprisings, slaves are running away, your crops are sometimes left in the fields too long for maximum profit, you suffer occasional fires, your animals are killed. Gentlemen, you know what your problems are; I do not need to elaborate. I am not here to enumerate your problems, I am here to introduce you to a method of solving them. In my bag here, I HAVE A FULL PROOF METHOD FOR CONTROLLING YOUR BLACK SLAVES. I guarantee every one of you that, if installed correctly, IT WILL CONTROL THE SLAVES FOR AT LEAST 300 HUNDREDS YEARS. My method is simple. Any member of your family or your overseer can use it. I HAVE OUTLINED A NUMBER OF DIFFERENCES AMONG THE SLAVES; AND I TAKE THESE DIFFERENCES AND MAKE THEM BIGGER. I USE FEAR, DISTRUST AND ENVY FOR CONTROL PURPOSES. These methods have worked on my modest plantation in the West Indies and it will work throughout the South. Take this simple little list of differences and think about them. On top of my list is “AGE,” but it’s there only because it starts with an “a.” The second is “COLOR” or shade. There is INTELLIGENCE, SIZE, SEX, SIZES OF PLANTATIONS, STATUS on plantations, ATTITUDE of owners, whether the slaves live in the valley, on a hill, East, West, North, South, have fine hair, course hair, or is tall or short. Now that you have a list of differences, I shall give you an outline of action, but before that, I shall assure you that DISTRUST IS STRONGER THAN TRUST AND ENVY STRONGER THAN ADULATION, RESPECT OR ADMIRATION. The Black slaves after receiving this indoctrination shall carry on and will become self-refueling and self-generating for HUNDREDS of years, maybe THOUSANDS. Don’t forget, you must pitch the OLD black male vs. the YOUNG black male, and the YOUNG black male against the OLD black male. You must use the DARK skin slaves vs. the LIGHT skin slaves, and the LIGHT skin slaves vs. the DARK skin slaves. You must use the FEMALE vs. the MALE, and the MALE vs. the FEMALE. You must also have white servants and overseers [who] distrust all Blacks. But it is NECESSARY THAT YOUR SLAVES TRUST AND DEPEND ON US. THEY MUST LOVE, RESPECT AND TRUST ONLY US. Gentlemen, these kits are your keys to control. Use them. Have your wives and children use them, never miss an opportunity. IF USED INTENSELY FOR ONE YEAR, THE SLAVES THEMSELVES WILL REMAIN PERPETUALLY DISTRUSTFUL. Thank you gentlemen.”


It was the interest and business of slave holders to study human nature, and the slave nature in particular, with a view to practical results. I and many of them attained astonishing proficiency in this direction. They had to deal not with earth, wood and stone, but with men and, by every regard, they had for their own safety and prosperity they needed to know the material on which they were to work, conscious of the injustice and wrong they were every hour perpetuating and knowing what they themselves would do. Were they the victims of such wrongs? They were constantly looking for the first signs of the dreaded retribution. They watched therefore with skilled and practiced eyes, and learned to read with great accuracy, the state of mind and heart of the slave, through his sable face. Unusual sobriety, apparent abstractions, sullenness and indifference indeed, any mood out of the common was afforded ground for suspicion and inquiry. Frederick Douglas LET’S MAKE A SLAVE is a study of the scientific process of man-breaking and slave-making. It describes the rationale and results of the Anglo Saxons’ ideas and methods of insuring the master/slave relationship. LET’S MAKE A SLAVE “The Original and Development of a Social Being Called ‘The Negro.’” Let us make a slave. What do we need? First of all, we need a black nigger man, a pregnant nigger woman and her baby nigger boy. Second, we will use the same basic principle that we use in breaking a horse, combined with some more sustaining factors. What we do with horses is that we break them from one form of life to another; that is, we reduce them from their natural state in nature. Whereas nature provides them with the natural capacity to take care of their offspring, we break that natural string of independence from them and thereby create a dependency status, so that we may be able to get from them useful production for our business and pleasure.


For fear that our future generations may not understand the principles of breaking both of the beast together, the nigger and the horse. We understand that short range planning economics results in periodic economic chaos; so that to avoid turmoil in the economy, it requires us to have breadth and depth in long range comprehensive planning, articulating both skill sharp perceptions. We lay down the following principles for long range comprehensive economic planning. Both horse and niggers [are] no good to the economy in the wild or natural state. Both must be BROKEN and TIED together for orderly production. For orderly future, special and particular attention must be paid to the FEMALE and the YOUNGEST offspring. Both must be CROSSBRED to produce a variety and division of labor. Both must be taught to respond to a peculiar new LANGUAGE. Psychological and physical instruction of CONTAINMENT must be created for both. We hold the six cardinal principles as truth to be self-evident, based upon following the discourse concerning the economics of breaking and tying the horse and the nigger together, all inclusive of the six principles laid down above. NOTE: Neither principle alone will suffice for good economics. All principles must be employed for orderly good of the nation. Accordingly, both a wild horse and a wild or natural nigger is dangerous even if captured, for they will have the tendency to seek their customary freedom and, in doing so, might kill you in your sleep. You cannot rest. They sleep while you are awake, and are awake while you are asleep. They are DANGEROUS near the family house and it requires too much labor to watch them away from the house. Above all, you cannot get them to work in this natural state. Hence, both the horse and the nigger must be broken; that is breaking them from one form of mental life to another. KEEP THE BODY, TAKE THE MIND! In other words, break the will to resist. Now the breaking process is the same for both the horse and the nigger, only slightly varying in degrees. But, as we said before, there is an art in long range economic planning. YOU MUST KEEP YOUR EYE AND THOUGHTS ON THE FEMALE and the OFFSPRING of the horse and the nigger. A brief discourse in offspring development will shed light on the key to sound economic principles. Pay little attention to the generation of original breaking, but CONCENTRATE ON FUTURE GENERATION. Therefore, if you break the FEMALE mother, she will BREAK the offspring in its early years of development; and when the offspring is old enough to work, she will deliver it up to you, for her normal female protective tendencies will have been lost in the original breaking process. For example, take the case of the wild stud horse, a female horse and an already infant horse and compare the breaking process with two captured nigger males in their natural state, a pregnant nigger woman with her infant offspring. Take the stud horse, break him for limited containment. Completely break the female horse until she becomes very gentle, whereas you or anybody can ride her in her comfort. Breed the mare and the stud until you have the desired offspring. Then, you can turn the stud to freedom until you need him again. Train the female horse whereby she will eat out of your hand, and she will in turn train the infant horse to eat out of your hand, also. When it comes to breaking the uncivilized nigger, use the same process, but vary the degree and step up the pressure, so as to do a complete reversal of the mind. Take the meanest and most restless nigger, strip him of his clothes in front of the remaining male niggers, the female, and the nigger infant, tar and feather him, tie each leg to a different horse faced in opposite directions, set him afire and beat both horses to pull him apart in front of the remaining niggers. The next step is to take a bullwhip and beat the remaining nigger males to the point of death, in front of the female and the infant. Don’t kill him, but PUT THE FEAR OF GOD IN HIM, for he can be useful for future breeding.


Take the female and run a series of tests on her to see if she will submit to your desires willingly. Test her in every way, because she is the most important factor for good economics. If she shows any sign of resistance in submitting completely to your will, do not hesitate to use the bullwhip on her to extract that last bit of [b----] out of her. Take care not to kill her, for in doing so, you spoil good economics. When in complete submission, she will train her offsprings in the early years to submit to labor when they become of age. Understanding is the best thing. Therefore, we shall go deeper into this area of the subject matter concerning what we have produced here in this breaking process of the female nigger. We have reversed the relationship; in her natural uncivilized state, she would have a strong dependency on the uncivilized nigger male, and she would have a limited protective tendency toward her independent male offspring and would raise male offsprings to be dependent like her. Nature had provided for this type of balance. We reversed nature by burning and pulling a civilized nigger apart and bullwhipping the other to the point of death, all in her presence. By her being left alone, unprotected, with the MALE IMAGE DESTROYED, the ordeal caused her to move from her psychologically dependent state to a frozen, independent state. In this frozen, psychological state of independence, she will raise her MALE and female offspring in reversed roles. For FEAR of the young male’s life, [b]she will psychologically train him to be MENTALLY WEAK and DEPENDENT, but PHYSICALLY STRONG. Because she has become psychologically independent, she will train her FEMALE offsprings to be psychologically independent. What have you got? You’ve got the nigger WOMAN OUT FRONT AND THE nigger MAN BEHIND AND SCARED. [/b]This is a perfect situation of sound sleep and economics. Before the breaking process, we had to be alertly on guard at all times. Now, we can sleep soundly, for out of frozen fear his woman stands guard for us. He cannot get past her early slave-molding process. He is a good tool, now ready to be tied to the horse at a tender age. By the time a nigger boy reaches the age of sixteen, he is soundly broken in and ready for a long life of sound and efficient work and the reproduction of a unit of good labor force. Continually through the breaking of uncivilized savage niggers, by throwing the nigger female savage into a frozen psychological state of independence, by killing the protective male image, and by creating a submissive dependent mind of the nigger male slave, we have created an orbiting cycle that turns on its own axis forever, unless a phenomenon occurs and re-shifts the position of the male and female slaves. We show what we mean by example. Take the case of the two economic slave units and examine them close.


We breed two nigger males with two nigger females. Then, we take the nigger male away from them and keep them moving and working. Say one nigger female bears a nigger female and the other bears a nigger male; both nigger females—being without influence of the nigger male image, frozen with a independent psychology—will raise their offspring into reverse positions. The one with the female offspring will teach her to be like herself, independent and negotiable (we negotiate with her, through her, by her, negotiates her at will). The one with the nigger male offspring, she being frozen subconscious fear for his life, will raise him to be mentally dependent and weak, but physically strong; in other words, body over mind. Now, in a few years when these two offsprings become fertile for early reproduction, we will mate and breed them and continue the cycle. That is good, sound and long range comprehensive planning.


Earlier, we talked about the non-economic good of the horse and the nigger in their wild or natural state; we talked out the principle of breaking and tying them together for orderly production. Furthermore, we talked about paying particular attention to the female savage and her offspring for orderly future planning, then more recently we stated that, by reversing the positions of the male and female savages, we created an orbiting cycle that turns on its own axis forever unless a phenomenon occurred and reshifts positions of the male and female savages. Our experts warned us about the possibility of this phenomenon occurring, for they say that the mind has a strong drive to correct and re-correct itself over a period of time if it can touch some substantial original historical base; and they advised us that the best way to deal with the phenomenon is to shave off the brute’s mental history and create a multiplicity of phenomena of illusions, so that each illusion will twirl in its own orbit, something similar to floating balls in a vacuum. This creation of multiplicity of phenomena of illusions entails the principle of crossbreeding the nigger and the horse as we stated above, the purpose of which is to create a diversified division of labor; thereby creating different levels of labor and different values of illusion at each connecting level of labor. The results of which is the severance of the points of original beginnings for each sphere illusion. Since we feel that the subject matter may get more complicated as we proceed in laying down our economic plan concerning the purpose, reason and effect of crossbreeding horses and niggers, we shall lay down the following definition terms for future generations. Orbiting cycle means a thing turning in a given path. Axis means upon which or around which a body turns. Phenomenon means something beyond ordinary conception and inspires awe and wonder. Multiplicity means a great number. Means a globe. Crossbreeding a horse means taking a horse and breeding it with an ass and you get a dumb, backward, ass long-headed mule that is not reproductive nor productive by itself. Crossbreeding niggers mean taking so many drops of good white blood and putting them into as many nigger women as possible, varying the drops by the various tone that you want, and then letting them breed with each other until another circle of color appears as you desire. What this means is this: Put the niggers and the horse in a breeding pot, mix some asses and some good white blood and what do you get? You got a multiplicity of colors of ass backward, unusual niggers, running, tied to backward ass long-headed mules, the one productive of itself, the other sterile. (The one constant, the other dying, we keep the nigger constant for we may replace the mules for another tool) both mule and nigger tied to each other, neither knowing where the other came from and neither productive for itself, nor without each other.


Crossbreeding completed, for further severance from their original beginning, WE MUST COMPLETELY ANNIHILATE THE MOTHER TONGUE of both the new nigger and the new mule, and institute a new language that involves the new life’s work of both. You know language is a peculiar institution. It leads to the heart of a people. The more a foreigner knows about the language of another country the more he is able to move through all levels of that society. Therefore, if the foreigner is an enemy of the country, to the extent that he knows the body of the language, to that extent is the country vulnerable to attack or invasion of a foreign culture. For example, if you take a slave, if you teach him all about your language, he will know all your secrets, and he is then no more a slave, for you can’t fool him any longer, and BEING A FOOL IS ONE OF THE BASIC INGREDIENTS OF ANY INCIDENTS TO THE MAINTENANCE OF THE SLAVERY SYSTEM. For example, if you told a slave that he must perform in getting out “our crops” and he knows the language well, he would know that “our crops” didn’t mean “our crops” and the slavery system would break down, for he would relate on the basis of what “our crops” really meant. So you have to be careful in setting up the new language; for the slaves would soon be in your house, talking to you as “man to man” and that is death to our economic system. In addition, the definitions of words or terms are only a minute part of the process. Values are created and transported by communication through the body of the language. A total society has many interconnected value systems. All the values in the society have bridges of language to connect them for orderly working in the society. But for these language bridges, these many value systems would sharply clash and cause internal strife or civil war, the degree of the conflict being determined by the magnitude of the issues or relative opposing strength in whatever form. For example, if you put a slave in a hog pen and train him to live there and incorporate in him to value it as a way of life completely, the biggest problem you would have out of him is that he would worry you about provisions to keep the hog pen clean, or the same hog pen and make a slip and incorporate something in his language whereby he comes to value a house more than he does his hog pen, you got a problem. He will soon be in your house.

Additional Note: “Henty Berry, speaking in the Virginia House of Delegates in 1832, described the situation as it existed in many parts of the South at this time: “We have, as far as possible, closed every avenue by which light may enter their (the slaves) minds. If we could extinguish the capacity to see the light, our work would be complete; they would then be on a level with the beasts of the field and we should be safe. I am not certain that we would not do it, if we could find out the process and that on the plea of necessity.” From Brown America, The story of a New Race by Edwin R. Embree. 1931 The Viking Press.
