word love is probably one of the most used and overworked words in
the English language. According to most European definitions, love is
“a feeling of strong personal attachment induced by sympathetic
understanding or by ties of kinship.” And of course we are most
familiar with the usage of the word love in connection with, “Tender
and passionate affection for one of the opposite sex.”
time to time we also hear the word love used as an expression and
articulation of one’s love for African people as a race.
is without question, that segments of the worldwide African Community
have lost all sense of moral and ethical relationships with other
African people. This is demonstrated day in and day out by the
increased number of African people participating in their own
genocide; killing each other, mentally and physically abusing each
other, stealing from each other, being dishonest with each other, and
the list goes on and on and on. This is why the Reparations Movement
is so important in the process of repair of the damages inflicted
can truly say I love African people no matter how frustrated I get
with the negative behavior of so many of our people.
love African people because I understand that the creative force of
the universe has endowed us to make the great contributions we have
made and continue to make to the world.
simple inspection of the ancient Nile Valley civilizations of Kemet
(Egypt) should cause African people to love each other. Ancient Kemet
and the Kemetic people (African people) were the creators of
mathematics, science, art, architecture, writing, governance,
astronomy, medicine, and so much more.
ancient Kemetic people produced wisdom that was written down in their
language called Medew Netcher / Divine Speech (our classical
African language) or what the Europeans call hieroglyphs.
can examine this ancient Kemetic wisdom in The Husia, which
gives us insight into how our great ancestors viewed life, death,
human relations, marriage, parenting, use of power, God, family, and
standard of moral and ethical conduct.
The Husia brings out all my love for African people in a most
profound and spiritual way.

“If one says I will rob
another, he will end up being robbed

of God which prevails. Therefore,
one should live in peace with others
and give gifts which another
would take from them through fear.”
words written 4,000 to 5,000 years ago and their wisdom should cause
all African people to once again love each other for the greater good
of our race.
love for each other and the wisdom of our ancestors, should give us
the inspiration and motivation, to re-dedicate ourselves to the

have a responsibility and duty to the Creator who gives us all life,
power, and health, by building institutions and giving back that
which has been given to us through the creative force of the
universe. This responsibility and duty should inspire us to work
harder in the Reparations Movement.
love African people because I know we have the capacity to return to
the concept of Maat (truth, justice, balance, divine
order, righteousness, reciprocity, and love), and by doing so,
restore Maat to its rightful place in our lives. Once Maat
is restored we can do as the Creator has done by giving life,
power, and health. By restoring Maat, we restore ourselves,
thus giving us all the necessary ingredients to win

I love African people and I urge all African people to love
