In the wake of mass racial violence, Black people are considering moving back to their roots.
The recent racial violence facing Black Americans — as was most recently witnessed in the killing of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Eric Garner among others by police officers in Baton Rouge and other States — the Black community is resounding the chorus of establishing a Black nation within a nation, and Black gun ownership. This idea is gaining grounds quicker than anticipated.
Gen. Babu Omowale, national minister of defense for the People’s New Black Panther Party and co-founder of the Huey P. Newton Gun Club, told Atlanta Black Star that “As far as self-defense, we are a defenseless people and surrounded by a hostile society here in America. I personally think that more than any people, Blacks and African people need to be armed”
For the purpose of Black empowerment, economic independence and total liberty from oppression is the concept of creating a Black nation within a nation. There was the formation of the Republic of New Africa in 1968 in the city of Detroit. The goal of the RNA was to claim the traditional homelands of Blacks in the Southern states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. These were States where individuals of African descent were enslaved.
It is well known the kind of brutalities the “white faced” people met out on Blacks. To avoid modern day slavery of Black Americans, there is the call for Blacks to arm themselves following the indiscriminate murdering of innocent Blacks. Blacks are to arm themselves with guns since their environment is a life-threatening one.

In addition to the much sought-after liberation, there is the itching need for Black autonomy where everything will be Black-managed and Black-owned. This is much needed to avoid the constant oppression and brutalities from the whites.It is therefore necessary for all Blacks to move to the 5 southern States which will automatically cause the whites to relocate from such States leaving the Blacks to own what is due them.
Blacks will then control the politics, the economics, and the education of these States indicating an established Black autonomy. The issue of special rights to the newly created “Black” nation would be much of a success than its current failure. The fight for Black liberty lives on unabated.
