In this lecture Mwalimu Baruti tackle sthe fallacy that western science is unbiased.
The Cultural Continuum lecture is an attempt to correct the intentional misrepresentation of traditional european culture and society by the western media.
As intelligent nationbuilders, we must be willing to openly admit that the western educational system is doing exactly what it was designed to do to our children. It is killing their curiosity and will to think independently, while corrupting their truth with perverted, abnormal cultural imperatives. In reality, it is no more than another form of child molestation. If we are to save our children from this maddening diseducation, how we educate our children and what they come to know as truth must revert to what worked for our Ancestors. What does this require? It requires educational institutions that work for us, here and now, molded from the minds of our Ancestors. It requires schools, good schools, especially for our youth, spatially and politically separate from european and negro public and private institutions, without ties to them or their curriculum. It requires teachers, better yet, healing educators willing to submit to the sacrifice of dedicating their lives to an Afrikan future. It requires specialized, ever-expanding Afrikan centered curricula, textbooks and reading materials designed to satisfy our children’s unique needs. Equally important, it requires supporters, investors, donors committed (whether secretly or not) to subsidize this intergenerational educational initiative. This lecture DVD is offered as a solution-based discussion of all of these issues.
This course is an in-depth Afrikan centered discussion of the requirements of Afrikan manhood. In it, Baruti clearly lays out our sources of power and the tools that must be acquired, mastered and used if we are to reclaim our correct role as warrior scholars in the battle to provide safe, sacred and empowering spaces for our families and communities. It gives specific consciousness raising guidelines for our nationbuilding effort, weeding out those compromising ideas and forces which have kept us confused over whether we want to be powerful or just influential in this world. The Asafo course is a very important tool in Afrikan men’s efforts to help ReAfrikanize our people. There is a strong emphasis on building functional educational institutions, developing a dynamic sense of group-consciousness through elevating one’s self-consciousness, male rites of passage programs and a warrior’s mental preparation. In addition, students are taken through the difficult process of growing from being merely other-directed, apathetic individual consumers to powerful, mission-directed men in thought, word and deed.
Clarity requires insight and foresight. Specifically for our Warriors, clarity requires a sound, politically-grounded, spiritually, intellectually and emotionally deep memory of us as a people. Our ability to interpret everything through knowledgeable Afrikan eyes will assist us in gaining a thoroughly realistic, functional interpretation of the reality in which we exist. Above all, our sight must be refined to the point where we are able to progressively visualize positive possibilities for our people based on who we have always been as well as the many obstructions strewn across the path to our sovereignty. We must begin to seriously involve ourselves in the process of becoming historically and ourstorically clear about our mission as Warriors. In doing so, we must never overlook the fact that there are worldviews, ways that politically interpret all of reality, at play. Regardless, our worldview must be one that is uncompromising in its penetration into our people’s and other nations’ ways and the why behind how things work between us and them. We must firmly grasp and permanently adopt this Warrior’s outlook as a way of thinking and interpreting reality. If not, we will remain unable to truly understand the nature of what must be overcome in order for us to successfully move Afrikan people toward a solvent sovereignty. This DVD set is the first part of that discussion as taken from a selection of essays in the first half of the book Clarity by Mwalimu K. Bomani Baruti.

This is a 12 DVD collection of lectures, speeches, panel discussions and interviews on the sources and symptoms of, and solutions to, mentacide among Afrikan people by Mwalimu K. Bomani Baruti. The DVDs included are The Sex Imperative, Homosexuality & The Effeminization Of Afrikan Males, Yurugu’s Eunuchs, Excuses, Excuses, Warriorhood, Complementarity, Centered, Eldership and Afrikan Centered Education.
The couple is the bedrock of the nation. Without it there is no family, no people. Without couples there can be no family to procreate and rear confident, untroubled, anchored children. No viable, community-respecting generation can be born to continue the process of life, living, building and defending. Afrikan couples must be whole, individually and as one. They must be able to trust themselves and each other implicitly. And that is what makes it imperative that we carefully choose our mates for Afrikan reasons. We must choose with vision. For we are the vanguard. Our unions have purpose far greater than the wants or needs of either member individually or the couple together. We do not bemoan this privilege. In fact, it is just the opposite. We are soldiers in love with forming beautiful families; rearing happy, thinking children; building strong, lasting communities; raising a mighty nation and removing all enemies. For Afrikan warrior scholar complements, there is no other reason for being. In these lectures, Mwalimu K. Bomani & Yaa Mawusi Baruti discuss the above truths. They present us with no-nonsense explanations of how intimate, purposeful, lasting relationships between Afrikan men and women grounded in the Afrikan tradition should be formed and develop over the lifetime of the individuals and families involved.

If we are to think our way through this reality without losing sight of who we are, we must have proper tools to keep us grounded in our truth.
3: A Godless Reason Mwalimu Baruti’s “Godless Reason”
lecture brings the god-vying mandate of eurocentric science to light.
He does not directly call us to question the validity of european science.
That was done in the “Subjective Objectivity” lecture. Here,
we are brought evidence that would cause any thinking person to question
why european society and its science expends so much energy trying to
negate any sense of divine wisdom, a working knowledge above and beyond
the human mind that is the ultimate source of all human answers except
for Europeans. He gives us ample reason to consider the arrogant, deicidal
(deity killing), atheistic intent of eurocentric science. As we listen
to his studied stream of thought, we are forced to give serious thought
to why these people feel compelled to elevate their sterile, despiritualized
science as the final authority on all things. All in all, Baruti explains
why Europeans are so blindly intent in their desire for supremacy that
they even feel that it is their “God-given” prerogative to
compete with the Creator as the “discoverers” of Universal
is a lecture that geographically turns the world right side up. We have
been looking at the world upside down for so long that we need the scholarly
tools of our Ancestors to right it in our minds and eyes. This presentation
by Mwalimu Baruti gives us those ancient tools and insight. Among others,
he uses the Continental Drift, Plate Tectonics and Universal Gravity
theories to show how the politically calculated misinformation of eurocentric
geopolitical science is embedded in our minds. Using these scientific
tools as our guide, we become analytically better empowered to investigate
the directional and gravitational “truths” that have evolved
about planet Earth in western thinking as a result of their eurocentric
definitions. These same tools, readjusted through an Afrikan centered
lens, then give us the ability to visualize what this planet, the physical
universe and geological change looks like when we look at them through
the reasoning eyes of our Ancestors.
he use of statistics has become central to the manipulation of western
and westernized individuals’ perceptions of society and their place/position
Irreconcilable Differences Cheikh
Anta Diop’s “Two Cradle Theory,” which explains the racial
and personality differences of Afrikans and Europeans based on where
the two groups began and evolved as people, is the foundation of the
“Irreconcilable Differences” lecture. Expanding and extending
this theory as a reasonable analytical tool for today’s racial frontlines,
Mwalimu Baruti focuses on what essential genocultural (those cultural
traits which have become genetically fused into a people) differences
distinguish Afrikans from Europeans. He painstakingly details those
things, traits, imperatives and ways which make Afrikans and Europeans
fundamentally incompatible at the most basic cultural level. Baruti
even goes further to describe where following the culturally misorienting
imperatives of someone other than our Ancestors has been leading us.
No nation can stand as a principled, honorable power without the sense and strength of its traditional convictions. And no people, determined to be independent, empowered and sovereign, can build and progressively maintain itself without a motivated, diligent, disciplined, respectful, knowledgeable warrior class who considers itself duty bound to defend the name and secure the existence of their people. At the heart of every decisive warrior class we have produced, we find this IWA, these virtuous qualities and an enduring strength of mind which reflect good character at the deepest psychological and spiritual levels. To be of good character, to possess IWA, our warriors must know how to think, speak and act as our Ancestors have. Above all else, this requires that there be no contradiction between these three manifestations of consciousness. Still, warriors have to recognize that this is an evolutionary process within. Developing good character takes both righteous instruction and ample time for the seeker to become one with it. Our Ancestors, and those who have continued their movement along the revolutionary, nationbuilding path, have already given us these warrior’s rules through their words and examples. They have left us an abundantly rich tradition of warriorhood. Through them, we can easily see what constitutes good character among warriors. What they have given the new vanguard is a dynamic, balanced way of thinking and living which offers loving guidance in their pursuit of good character on the home front as well as battlefields in this anti-Afrikan reality. This lecture series is an examination of that character and the methods for building it.
This is a lecture given at Positive Kemetic Visions (PKV) in Washington, DC on February 11, 2012.
MENTACIDEThis lecture is a discussion and expansion of Nana Bobby E. Wright’s concept of mentacide. Wright defined it as meaning to kill the mental process, to kill one’s normal thought processes, essentially, to kill one’s own mind. In that there is still a thought process at work, mentacide also means that an artificial, alien way of thinking is in operation. He also understood that mentacide is only possible when the oppressor controls the resources and agenda of those institutions that are fundamentally essential to the survival of the very group they work to destroy. COMMON SENSE In his discussion of common sense, Baruti deals with the trusting attitude many Afrikans express toward european people. We are forced to reconsider the assertion that all of life is good and of what must be done to bring about a humane reality. This idea of evil acts, and not evil persons or an evil people, taken out of cultural context and not considered relative to its origins in society where Europeans were as of yet unknown, is questioned as to its fit in the thought of Afrikans now working to return order to this planet by following in the footsteps of our Ancestors.
THE HUNT IS ONThe rate at which Afrikan people are locked behind bars is as important an indicator of our mental or physical health as our suicide, illness, poverty, mortality, abortion or drop-out rates. Our incarceration is not just an act against individuals. The assault is against all Afrikans. There are furious, hateful social forces at work against us. We must remember that this is a wholistic offensive agains the Afrikan in this, and every other, western cultural wasteland. Afrikans are under attack every minute of every day, with whatever weapons Europeans can muster to hasten our mentacidal and genocidal removel from this planet. And their assault has not let up since they first laid their covetous eyes on our power many centuries ago. Our confinement and isolation have always been an integral part of this process of annihilation. Those they do not want to kill they control through fear and contain behind soundproof walls. Incarceration remains one of the most effective methods for physically, emotionally and spritually tearing Afrikan men and women away from themselves and their families. In this lecture, Brauti presents and discusses the statistical indicators of this and lays out, from an Afrikan centered perspective, the theoretical reasoning as to why Afrikans are disproportionately institutionalized.
Why are so many young, healthy Afrikan males committing suicide? Why are more and more teen and preteen males in our community killing themselves before their time, before they have even begun to live and realize their power? Is it because they come equipped with less inner strength than others in this tough game of life and just cannot handle its trials and tribulations? Or should we look to the anxiety-inducing society and culture in which they have been forced to assimilate for answers to this crippling and growing phenomenon? In a comparative analysis of Afrikan and european mentalities toward life, living and spirituality, Baruti looks at why our sons are increasingly dying at their own hands. He delves deeply into the question of why Afrikan youth are more prone to suicidal thought and behavior in an anti-Afrikan, eurocentric society and the role that racial-culturally different methods for coping with inordinate levels of stress play in Afrikan youth disproportionately finding themselves gravitating toward suicidal solutions to what might otherwise appear as everyday problems. $20
Homosexualized Afrikan males, the politics of homosexualizing the Afrikan warrior image and the threat of being homosexualized are the focus of this discussion where three different but related aspects of this assault on our being are discussed. Baruti first recounts and explains from an Afrikan centered perspective a recent court case involving the defensive reaction of a young Afrikan male to being victimized by an older Afrikan male in a situation where he logically felt defenseless. Another discussion is deeply troubling for it exposes the attempt by the politically active european, negro and homosexualized Afrikan organized efforts to homosexualize Omowale Malcolm X. The third part has to do with sexual confusion among so-called Afrikan centered academics, intellectuals well read and studied in the Afrikan Way, who promote themselves as spokespersons for Afrikan manhood but privately lead sexually confused lives. $20
HIGH TREASONIt is nothing new that some who claim to be Afrikan, who claim to speak uncompromisingly of the Afrikan Way, are guilty of faithfully worshiping Europeans and their way. Whether covertly or openly trafficking chaos throughout our community, they have caused many of us to seriously question the nature of their contribution to our nationbuilding. There have long been traitors in our midst. But most have not been a surprise. Little more was expected of them. Most have not caused us deep, wrenching pain. However, the number we would never suspect who bring treasonous destruction to our people is increasingly rapidly. Interestingly, a sizable number of the latest group to renounce “the revolution” are those who held prominent positions in the Black Power Movement. Many have still been able to hide their true selves and intent from the masses. However, some have fallen out of the negroes closet onto the “we’re all human” stage. And most of them are now being fully compensated for their revolutionary turnabout and publicly honored by the same supremacists whose destruction they only recently claimed to be their only reason for living. $20
LEAVING THEM FOR THE WOLVES
Since we live within an alien, anti-Afrikan culture and society, no matter how hard we try, it is extremely difficult to harness and direct our children’s energy and genius toward the Afrikan Way after they have outgrown their dependence on us. Why has what should be so natural become so difficult? Sadly, it is because we have no sold national social (economic, political, military) structure within which they can truly be Afrikan. They have very few valid, open Afrikan centered communities which they can call home. For this reason, when our children become adults, they find it increasingly difficult to freely and righteously exercise themselves to the benefit of their people and confront their enemy in a way that logically and uncompromisingly fits our Afrikan vision. They cannot do both the work of our generation and theirs. Because of our fears and divided loyalties, we have failed to create a functioning nation for them. We have not built a physical, cultural and spiritual space with clearly defined boundaries and a center which emanates from an ancient, traditional, uncompromising core. We have not provided them with a secure, protected space within which they can safely study themselves and othes. In essence, because we have not done this, they have become nationless warriors, furious mercenaries in service to whoever supplies the quickest and easiest opiate from the pain of being Afrikan in a european dominated world.
To be an Asafo means to be a member of the Afrikan warrior class. It means that you have put away the thoughts and toys of this eropean world and are consciously, committedly, aggressively, uncompromisingly and completely employing your Afrikan spirit, mind and body in the battle to combat the destruction of Afrikan people. It means that you know that any conversation with our enemies ended the moment they assaulted one of us. It means that you know that the word “warrior” is not just a title you use to impress yourself and others while you do nothing worthy of it. Being a warrior is not play. It is not a game. It is not pretend, make believe or fantasy. Warriorhood has always been the highest honor a youth could aspire to attain when his or her people were fighting for their very survival against an unrelenting and merciless enemy. Warriorhood has slways been the calling of young men and women who refuse to accept their people’s defeat as inevitable. We call those who embrace this calling Asafo. And Asafo have specific responsibilities and possess certain uncompromising, honorable qualities. Not just anyone can be an Asafo. It requires a special kind of Afrikan, one who can stand alone and together with us with no fear.
NANA JOHN HENRIK CLARKEMuch time has passed since Nana John Henrik Clarke left this realm and ascended into pure spirit, joining our ancestors. But we wtill miss him as if it were only yesterday. For he was a sure, steadfast, incorruptible voice among us. Unfortunately, too many of us never knew his words, never heard this loving man speak. And, among those of us who did, some have even forgotten to remember his power. No other ourstorian has been held in as high esteem by Afrikans seeking an Afrikan truth uncontaminated by others’ cultural politics as he. This Afrikan warrior scholar was unafraid of our enemies within and without. He neither honored nor owed them. He did not lie to us. He had no reason to. His wise words told our true stories as a people in unremitting rebellion against an assimilated, amalgamaed, vanquished subintegration into whiteness. He was/is our baba, educator, warrior, ourstorian, always standing on our first line of intellectual defense. He was a true jegna. With this lecture we again honor him.
As Afrikan warrior scholars, we can be said to have a choice. We can pretend, trying to blend Afrikan trappings with european imperatives. We can pretend to be “afropean” emissaries. Or, we can remove all contradictions in what we think, say and do as our people’s revolutionaries and become independently Afrikan. Then, again, this is not true. We do not have a choice. If we have truly removed all compromising intent and anti-Afrikan motivations, then there is no choice. If we have chosen to be nationbuilding, reAfrikanized warrior scholars, then there are not even any partial european options to consider. All was decided when we swore never again to commit treason against our Ancestors. At that point, we decided to be nothing less than Afrikan. If some choice still remains, then we have not truly decided to be Afrikan warrior scholars. ReAfrikanization and nationbuilding have no room for gray areas. To become independently Afrikan we must do these things and never concern ourselves, unreasonably, with the reaction of others. We must act as if we must answer to our Ancestors, our children and the unborn. We must act as if this is our testing ground, as if what we righteously do here will determine whether we will be honored as warrior scholars or dismissed as traitors when we make our transition and are judged. $20
SELF-SERVING SPIRITUALITY This lecture addresses the escapism many Afrikans practicing the rituals of our traditional spritual systems engage in while deluding themselves and/or others into believing that the communal spirit and responsibility is either being adhered to or dismissed as irrelevant in this day and age. The divine individualism they have so hopelessly run toward, in order to avoid the responsibilities of the reality of confronting the enemies of our children and their future, has freed them to excuse themselves from being responsible adults and members of an Afrikan community that is working toward independent group empowerment. This growing group of self-chosen spirit seekers look to the stars, the zodiac, the Far East, ancient and traditional Afrikan spiritual systems, newfangled imperialist religions without sectarian names, in hope of grabbing on to that one all-encompassing belief, or melded collection of them, that will allow them to access the peace they have become too weak to fight for. Some even allow themselves to become lightheaded enough to confuse their work to become personally still with a concrete struggle for Afrikan empowerment. Running from one religion to another, looking to dodge responsibility, they have evaded the superficial, spiritual-deadening religious dogmas arrogantly imposed on them by aliens, but remain unable to shed the deeply internalized cultural imperatives of the people who gave them that corrupted interpretation of spirit in the first place.
GROUNDINGS WITH MY DAUGHTERS In a world where the number of fathers present in Afrikan homes is steadily decreasing, after having already passed the critical stage, there is an even greater need for revolutionary Afrikan men to speak with our daughters. This talk is just that, a conversation between Mwalimu Baruti and our daughters. it is full of the advice, warnings, motivation, directions and expressed love that daughters need to hear and feel from their community of fathers. Baruti takes them back into their ancestral record and responsibilities as women, warriors in their own right, by explain in detail that they are one with our past. He instructs them that they must thoroughly study our Way and know that their greatest stories and traditions lie far beyond these shores in both time and space. But the message goes even further. In no uncertain terms, they are told that they must recognize and honor the fact that being conscious of being Afrikan and what that ourstorically means is vital to our survival as a people. Our daughters have a weighty responsibility as the new vanguard, as our people’s healers and here they are told why.
VISION and THOUGHT, WORD AND DEEDAs Afrikan warrior scholars we are at a distinct disadvantage. Often, watching Europeans being their natural unnatural selves and mentacidal Afrikans with no sense of self openly flaunting their self-hatred alongside them, is like being a passenger in a fatal auto accident, moving in slow motion, without the power of decision, unable to alter the course of what’s happening, watching the wreck unfold, slowly, surely. As long as we continnue to feel we are held captive within someone else’s cold, cruel cultural vacuum, we will continue to succumb to their will. If we do not break free of their tenacious hold we will become destroyed because we will cease to exist as Afrikans. This lecture is about breaking free. Many in our community act agains their brothers and sisters by lying, cheating and stealing from them under the cloak of being Afrikan. These corrupters will be with us until we return to power. This is the warning to them and the call for conscious Afrikans to never let confused Afrikans take away our birthright to be revolutionary.
Based on Mwalimu K. Bomani Baruti’s book Message to The Warriors, this DVD course set contains a the lectures from his classes on Nationalism & Enemies; Behavior, Attitude, Appearance & Words; Complement, Preparedness, Action & Accountability and Education, Religion & Rules.

This portion of the lecture addresses how Europeans have fabricated the idea that they are bringing a new sense of oneness and tranquility to humanity.
This lecture shows that lying is fundamentally an historical character trait of european people, much more so than any other.

Most of us would have little to no problem agreeing that the range of color Afrikans possess is awesome.
This lecture revolves around negroes, those mentacidal Afrikans who subsist in such a deep and committed state of self-hatred and denial that they feel it is their divine duty and responsibility to bring every other Afrikan down…
Sesh is the oldest known name for those individuals we now mistakenly call scribes. In ancient Kemetic society, it was the title bestowed on those individuals whose profession it was to record our truths, explain our vision and defend the Way of our people against the confusion of others. It remains a most honorable calling, involving the incredibly beautiful struggle of mastering independent Afrikan thought. Only those who refuse to be spiritually, psychologically and physically intimidated by this anti-Afrikan environment qualify to follow the path of a seshThis book is also a heartfelt call for serious, conscious Afrikans to build independent publishing and distribution companies for us. If we are to develop as a self-defining, self-determining, powerful people, we must create institutions, which will champion strong, dynamic Afrikan centered interpretations of reality. Only in this way will our literature and thiking remain firmly rooted in the uncompromising traditions of our Ancestors.
This lecture is a response to the growing clamor about warriorhood and homosexuality. It is a discussion of the question of the possibility of homosexualized Afrikan warriors. The confusion within our community is not without cause. People without a commanding, dynamic ancestral vision, without an identity beyond the limits imposed by a eurocentric reality, without ourstorical understanding, without hope, often succumb to impotent images of power in order to feel they are participating in a revolutionary movement or struggle to save themselves from the unrelenting horror assailing them. When chaos abounds, those caught up in it, but who are not its source, are often forced to settle for whatever limitations in reality’s possibilities the creators and benefactors of that chaos allow.
