AS A CHILD I WONDERED.....
As A child I wondered, As a man I knew As A Child I wondered, As a man I knew Broken dreams and promises bad news with postage due

Nostril-aching smells of sadness, embryos try-ing to dodge the knife We’re all spattered, with the urban-blues As a child I wondered, as a man I knew Death on a shingle, cold ground call nothing to lose Multi-hues robots accustomed to being used Powdered face gun toters, grab a straw for the booze As a child I wondered, As a man I knew

INTRODUCTION Don’t let them fool you, it is not the gun that keeps the have nots of the world in bondage to white supremacy’s economic system of capitalism, it is the mass media component of this system of exploitation that perpetuates the confusion of the oppressed. Confusion is the enemy of revolution and the western media are experts in causing confusion and perpetuating lies, stereotypes, and his-torical distortion, as they play with our appetite for a better life. Anti-Afrikan Propaganda is a vital key to the survival of white supremacy. Any error in this area of the great white lie would certainly lead to the destruction of the world economic and communications order. In short, this is the heart we are attempting to strike at to deal this evil force a death blow. A blow that would breathe life into PanAfrikanism in particular, and the exploited in general. Consequently, it is vital that all mediums of their mass media reinforce one another. In other words, they must articulate the same lie in every media product. And what are these media products that we ingest and digest daily on the road to further servitude: Music: (records, videos, songwriting, musical awards, classical European, traditional Afrikan, blues, gospel, r&b, jazz, rock, Reggae, rap, afro-pop, etc.) Print Medium (which includes text books, newspapers, novels, comic books, print advertisements, magazines, newsletters, cereal boxes, bill boards, posters, graffiti etc.) 6

WAR CORRESPONDENT
Radio: (talk programs, music programming, sports programming, public broadcasting, all news formats, religious programming, campus radio, etc.) Film: (Hollywood, documentaries, educational films, cartoons, training films, his-torical teaching tools, etc.) Television: (support your local police shows “cop shows,” sitcoms, soap operas, cartoons, t. v. news, docu-dramas, sports, award programs “grammy/Tony/Emmy,” educational t.v., Cable t.v. syndicated reruns, news specials etc.) Telephone: (telephone commercials, tele-marketing of sex, products, exploitation of the lonely, intelligence gathering etc.) Fashions: (European fashion crazes, official business uniforms, Afrikan cultural attire, hairstyles, gold craze, graffiti people, peer pressure and sewing machines etc.) Scholarship: (colonization of scholarship, stolen legacies, his-torical banditry, perpetuation of academic superiority, technological ownership, control of degrees, educational institutions etc.) Satellite Communications: (Invading the borders of other nations, broadcasting in other nations’ air space, promotion of western values and products, spying on other countries, etc.) 7

DEL JONES, W. C.
This work was designed as a community working paper and survival kit for establishing a beachhead against the invasions of our minds, and destruction of our culture. Also to further document things this author may have missed that you think are important and must be shared with the community. It is also designed to set up a coherent counter attack to drive back the invaders of our collective consciousness that are in pursuit of our purchasing power as it simultaneously attempts to destroy us. In addition, it serves as documentation of Amerikkka’s program of genocide and menta-cide against Afrikan people. The burden of understanding these things demands us to act to slap back the aggression and put forward individual and mass programs of both rehabilitation and culture maintenance. It should be understood that the scope of this subject is vast and can not be adequately covered in one volume. However, the broad brush is necessary to define the methods of the enemy, the maladies they cause and some of the options that are available to us.

Culture Bandits Vol.l (which covers music) is a liberating tool and should not be confused with any reformist products put out by many other media critics. It was developed to heighten the awareness of the victims (us) and act as just one of the deprogramming agents necessary for the development of our just struggle against domination by the white collective.
What you must bring to this work is an open mind and an inquiring spirit. It was written for mass consumption, not 8

WAR CORRESPONDENT
just as an exercise in intellectualizing the struggles of Afrikan people. It is the goal of this book to aid the community in being ever vigilant to the deadly demonic forces that cloud reality to control every sphere of our lives. No mass media product should go unquestioned by the brain computer. We must shed the passive approach to the media. We then will enter a tug-a-war for our consciousness, our culture, and . . our very hue-manity. The element of trust must be excluded when dealing with the mass media, because when we begin to identify with the media messages on a personal tip, we are in grave danger of being used against our own interest. Every media message has a reason for being created and none of these creations are designed to deliver freedom to Afrikan people. On the contrary, all of their products are produced to increase control and exploitation. It is the goal of the mass media to sell the Amerikkkan way as the superior system, yes that bastard Amerikkkan culture is projected as the beginning and the end. Finally, two things can not occupy the same space at the same time, consequently our freedom can not be created as long as their exploitation is intact and in control of our present and our children’s future. Leave all you know and believe behind the cover of this book and travel with me into dimensions untouched as we continue our search for the liberation of our own minds. Then and only then will we be free to develop the strategies and tactics necessary to turn the tables on the Culture Bandits and undo their lie that has captured the world and its resources. 9

GLOSSARY OF TERMS

“Every society has its own culture and every culture its own values of civilization. Thus, we easily understand that every act, every objective to be achieved should necessarily be within the scope of culture; for culture embraces the entire physical and moral being of a society whose whole thought and action underlies in the various manifestations of its existence.” Sekou Turé

GLOSSARY OF TERMS
GLOSSARY OF TERMS CULTURE Culture is everything a people do, why they do it, when they do it and how it is done. Everything falls in the realm of culture. COLONIALISM The system of governing a people in their own land by a foreign power. It has social, economic components and its chief activity is to rob the indigenous people of their resources, self determination, culture, labor and basic freedom. MASS MEDIA Broadcast and print mediums that disseminate information locally, nationally or internationally. Its role is to control the flow of information, ideas and culture. Its primary objective is to distort, lie, rename, confuse and destroy all truths that could be used for liberating purposes by those subjugated by white supremacy. RADIO The broadcast system used to reach audiences using the radio spectrum. Audio programming used to sell ideas, lifestyles, and products to the world. Also, it is used to control thought and dissent. Its largest product is music, a vital tool of the Culture Bandits. The first truly effective mass vehicle for exportation of alien culture. TELEVISION The broadcasting of audio and visual images. A medium that is popular and used to define reality, influence opinion, and redefine information and situations. Used for the propagation of Amerikkkanism and western values. A manager of news and views, greatest salesman of products as it brings what Dallas Smyte calls “advertisers to audiences.” Supplies visual images for the populous to emulate. Socializing agent for morales, mores and culture. Redefines reality 11

GLOSSARY OF TERMS
and delivers a fantasy perspective in its place. Creates only confusion to set viewer up for economic, cultural and social exploitation. FILM Valuable tool of promoting Amerikkkan culture, historical inaccuracies, selling fashions and abnormal perspectives. A racist tool for redefining people and stereotyping outsiders and justifying genocidal programs, past & present, against people of color. VIDEO The new kid on the block, a great tool to quickly overtly and covertly define anything effectively. Example, music videos have become a powerful promotion tool for the recording (audio) industry. However, like the rest of the mass media, it is a powerful weapon in the hands of the Culture Bandits. Consequently, music videos are trapped in the foul waters of racism/sexism/soap opera/violence. Its violent counterpart, the video games, are trapped in the quicksand of its own unwholesome world-view of war, sex and racism. Most of the minds dealing with this medium are demented, and in a powerful position of sabotaging any attempts at developing a healthy consciousness. Even the pinball machines that preceded video games were violent/ racist/sexist. PRINT The oldest and the most abusive. Under the logo of “free flow of information” the most racist/reactionary garbage has been produced. While at the same time, the effective control over the distribution of newspapers, books, magazines, periodicals, journals etc. has limited Afrikan people’s access to each other. This book is evidence that now there is no excuse for us to lay silent. The advancements in computerization and desk top publishing and the establishment of Black distributors has begun to chip away at the concrete barrier between the writers, publishers, and their Black audiences. 12

GLOSSARY OF TERMS
COLONIZED SCHOLARSHIP The colonization of scholarship is the control over our research and information by and about us. Keeping it captive and away from the people who need it to develop a clear view of our-story and our present direction. The mere fact of keeping the work of our researchers in all areas of scholarship unpublished or under-published, extracts our scholarship from the body of knowledge. Even though, we are the founders of all the disciplines they now claim. While at the same time, they promote and present anti-Afrikan propaganda that was/is unfounded, untrue and destructive to the collective intellect of our people and how others view the Afrikan. ACADEMIC TERRORISM Is a critical activity of controlling the thoughts of our people. The discrimination against our educators, who challenge the lies that they perpetuated by denying tenure, employment and advance degrees. All the way down to the elementary school student who is punished for presenting George Washington as the slave holder he was, or pointing out the Afrikan lineage of Beethoven, Pushkin, Aesop etc. Designed to make the Black students’ and educators’ consciousness prisoners of white supremacy. CULTURAL GENOCIDE Cultural Genocide is the goal of the Culture Bandits in all phases of society. It is their goal to destroy the culture of our people, claim all they can accept as their creation, while destroying those elements that are undigestible by the European. Another goal is to confuse the people as they attempt to apply another race’s morals, mores and norms to themselves. The death of the culture would lead to the death of the people they hate and fear. CULTURAL IMPERIALISM The invasion of another culture (collective & individual consciousness of a people) by outsiders (enemies) in order to rearrange and control the victims for the purpose of subjugation. 13

GLOSSARY OF TERMS
AUDIENCES TO ADVERTISERS The major role of radio, newspapers, t.v., etc. is to bring audiences to advertisers for the purpose of selling products. For example, sports is used to sell: beer, sneakers, cars and other so-called male products. Even when attending a sporting event live, the printed programs, and scoreboard are littered with commercial messages. Soap Operas are used to push: home products, laundry products, feminine napkins, fashions, cosmetics, etc. Ratings are based on how many people a program can deliver to a sponsor. Proven winners like the Super Bowl can command almost a million dollars per 60 second spot. SUBLIMINAL MESSAGES Hidden messages and images using air brush techniques, words and images embedded in frames of film or photos that only the unconscious eye can see or subconscious ear can hear. It is an illegal and unethical approach to propaganda. Yet, it is a skillful part of their communications arsenal. SUBLIMINAL SEDUCTION The process of using the speed of the mind against the consciousness of the individual for the purpose of seducing the individual into a pleasant response for the products of the advertiser. It employs sexual references for the purpose of establishing a favorable feeling in the mind of the viewer. We must side step intellectualizing here and state it is a vicious rape of the mind and a criminal act. Playing with the reoccurring sexual urges of human beings is reflected in the rape of men, women and children and the unhealthy unnatural sexual abuse seen in many relationships. GOSPEL MUSIC Our musical response to the religion of our captors, that was used for political purposes. “Wade In the Water,” and “Follow The Drinking Gourd” are just two examples of gospel songs that passed on political and escape route messages within the worship space that was allowed. Many times only for worship could prisoners of war (slaves) be 14

GLOSSARY OF TERMS
allowed to gather. Later many of us were to adopt the Christian religion seriously. THE BLUES A musical form that grew out of gospel expressions and the objective conditions of Afrikan people here in the states. Like every form of our rich, musical culture, there are different kinds of expressions that make up the blues. Many came from different objective realities in various locations throughout this country. Whether it was Chicago, New Orleans, Memphis or St. Louis, we sang the blues all over because conditions required a musical articulation of reality. RHYTHM & BLUES (SOUL, URBAN CONTEMPORARY) The expanding of the blues toward more complicated instrumentation and arrangements increasing the complexity, which was an out growth of the urban or city experiences. Environmental factors impact on the type of musical products we will produce. The tone and pace of life will always affect the music. R&B is also what some considered at the time to be the unholy alliance between Gospel & Blues. Which gave us another term for R&B, which is also called Soul Music. Now the music business apparatus is calling R&B (Soul Music) Urban Contemporary, which would include all kinds of people, who live in an urban setting. This attempt to take away the ethnic identity of the music and drop it in the lap of the exploiters has drawn criticism from many Black recording executives, artists and consumers. Polish, Irish, Asian, so-called Jewish and many other peoples live in what is called “contemporary society.” They would be apart of such a logo (Urban contemporary). Like Malcolm X taught us, “Black coffee keeps us awake, but put in a little cream and what kept you awake will then lull you to sleep.” JAZZ Is the total exploration of all music to infinity. A collage of textures and tempos, it is a highly sophisticated tapestry of all that has come before and all that will emerge in the future. It is an intellectualizing 15

GLOSSARY OF TERMS
of the blues and definitely indigenous to our people. You see, the call and response, crisscross rhythms and poly rhythms are locked in just as they are in all forms of Afrikan music. It is feared by our enemies, because it is harder to digest by those outside our culture. Consequently, there has been more aggression against jazz than any other form of music with the exception of music dealing with revolutionary lyric lines (Billie Holiday’s “Strange Fruit,” The Last Poet’s “This is Madness,” Oscar Brown, Jr.’s “Brother Where Are You,” and Public Enemies “Welcome To The Terrordome” are just a few examples). ROCK ‘N ROLL Is the bastard child of R&B, which was created to invade our musical culture by the Culture Bandits. Before this music, the music was as segregated as the society. Our musical culture advanced at a steady pace. The Culture Bandits decided to run a frontal assault on R&B for both economic and political reasons. Our music, which was called race music, was separated by stations or blocks of time on white broadcasting outlets. Neatly pushed aside, so they thought. However, crude demographics and documented observations of whites sneaking uptown and across the tracks to partake of our musical culture screamed for an economic and political solution. Elvis Presley, Bill Haley and the Comets, and people like Jerry Lee Lewis were projected as the alternative to the real thing. In short, they muscled their way into our music with these pale, soulless imitators of our song. They are unashamed, as they propagate themselves as the originators and have our youths thinking Sha Na Na were the creators of Do Wop music, which was born under street lamps in the Black neighborhoods in Urban centers. POP MUSIC Soulless music, white-like for consumption by the dominate culture, broken down Black music into patterns and melodies that don’t confuse whites. Blacks who slip into this category sell their soul for a few (really a lot of) pieces of silver and usually can never come 16

GLOSSARY OF TERMS
home again. Sammy Davis, Joe Williams, Diana Ross and Lou Rawls are clear examples of singers with proven talent content to drone sounds in mikes for the consumption of whites. REGGAE Reggae is a dynamic music that spun out of the reality of the Jamaican experience and is locked into the suffering of the Jamaican people and the religion of Rastafari. Its foundation is grounded in basic Rhythm and Blues and, of course, has all the elements of Afrikan music in it. Recently, the Culture Bandits have been struggling to destroy the music. The attempts on the life of Bob Marley and his questionable death, the death of Peter Tosh, the deaths of several other key exponents of the art form cleared the way for commercializing the form and removing the nationalism from it. This was done by: a. controlling the economic base of the music b. controlling radio airplay across the globe c. isolating the political (culture) portion of the music and exploiting the party music (dance hall) d. controlling the artists by making them subscribe to the “acceptable” standards set by the deadly enemies of the music. e. overexposing the sound through commercials, while attempting to shorten the life of the uniqueness of Reggae. f. Finally, developing in the young artists a carrot on the stick control of the music. In other words, do it this way or starve. RAP MUSIC (HIP HOP) The music of the streets forced out of the urban decay we are captured by in the inner-city. It was born out of the response of the youth from the control of our music by the enemy. The businessmen creation and perpetuation of the music under the logo of “Disco” and the development of the male images of soft-punks like: Michael Jackson, Prince, Babyface and assorted non-threatening images that developed in little girls the wrong image of Afrikan manhood, and in little boys 17

GLOSSARY OF TERMS
soft non-threatening characteristics, that would never confront our enemies on behalf of our people. Music that is now struggling with the same forces who control Reggae and for all the same reasons. However, the nature of the promotion of the music (on the streets and in the clubs rather then radio air-play) and the fiercely loyal audience has led to the growth of Hip Hop. And it is growing because of the reactionary backlash of the Culture Bandits. Nationalism is the ingredient that will never be washed out, but the struggle continues. ROCK ‘N HEAVY METAL Attempts of white music to explore sound, space and time. Fathered and given definition by Jimi Hendrix. Grafted from the Blues and R&B, British attempts to create off of a Black base failed until the arrival of Hendrix. Interesting enough, they have never surpassed his work and still fumble around in the musical state of creative confusion lost and alien. Heavy marketing and the creation of a culture around these sounds have created a planet for exploitation. Fashions and products surround the white youthful sounds and a necessary loyalty keeps it afloat. It is important to note that, this music only exists as a vehicle for young whites to attempt to get in touch with their feelings and in touch with the environment that is being destroyed by their mothers and fathers. The Chicago Transit Authority, Blood Sweat and Tears, the British rock acts, and the million white vocalists that tried to sound like Ray Charles, cut Rock out as a beachhead for further invasion of Black music. After all Bruce Springsteen, George Michael and others had to have a fort to attack from and reinforcements to prevail. However, stealing is their only form of originality. Culture Bandits will steal from Jazz, Reggae, Blues, Gospel and R&B (naturally groups like Guns ‘N Roses and the Rolling Stones’ music are racist products from those who disrespect the victims of their larceny). But in the final analysis, it’s an innovationless music because its mother, Black Music, ignores it as a child of a raped parent. CALYPSO (SOCA) Music of the Eastern Islands of the so-called Caribbean. A local folk 18

GLOSSARY OF TERMS
music with a carnival vibe, but also cuts with necessary political knife in the hands of some of its creative artisans. Mostly uptempo, it provides a pulse all of its own, a life of bright sounds, unique rhythms and cultural compatibility with all other Afrikan forms of music. MUSIC FROM THE AFRIKAN CONTINENT Afro-pop, Juju, Mbaqanga, Highlife and other contemporary sounds from the homeland mix comfortably with the traditional rhythms that gave birth to music of the world. Heavily influenced by imported R&B and Jazz, they all demonstrate the creativity of the Afrikan with word, sound, and power. In addition, it also speaks to environmental factors that are tied to all Afrikan expressions. More importantly, like Reggae it is a music that is kept from the Afrikan in the States at all costs. When all of these sounds marry, the earth will shake and the Culture Bandits will be on their way out as controllers of our culture. AFRIKAN CONTEMPORARY MUSIC (Afro-Pop, Juju Music, Mbaqanga, Highlife etc.) Afrikan contemporary music is a diverse as the many languages on the continent. Flavored from ethnic tradition and culture, it is married with the musical approach of the Afrikan taken to the states. Therefore, the R&B flavor and jazz riffs identify us all as the same people using the same elements of sound to articulate our environmental and social experiences. Fela, Franco, Sonny Okshun, Sonny Ade, Hugh Masekela and thousands of others create the Afrikan jam from their reality. And we all benefit. Culture Bandits like Ginger Baker, Eric Burdon and Paul Simon, travel the globe looking for a sound to steal and rework through Copyright Offices unashamed. They think they are undetected Culture Bandits masquerading under the title of liberals. CROSSOVER MUSIC Music purposely designed to appeal to both Black and white audiences. Disco is a perfect example of how economics can affect 19

GLOSSARY OF TERMS
the culture of our people. Pop music was the first crossover music design to redefine Black music to be digested by mass white audiences, who were economically and culturally out of touch with the developers of the real music. POP MUSIC Attempts by whites to interpret the foreign musical products of Black folk for exploitation. FUSION Fusion is the use of all kinds of Black music to create a new sound. R & B bass runs, complex chord changes, different meters and melody lines proves the relativity of our sounds. Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew was a hallmark, yet so-called “jazz purists” (whatever that might be) criticized Miles as a sell out. Even though, he never left home, because all these textures and sounds are our creations, many have locked their ears to Miles’ constantly evolving sounds. A foreign artist, like Chuck Corea, known for his work in fusion, demonstrated contempt for the creators of the music by recording the so-called JoBurg sessions in South Afrika. That’s his thanks to Miles’ people after playing with Davis. “They don’t get no respect!” MUSICAL SOAP OPERAS The constant diet of love songs, relationship situations and sexual banter that is both childish and out of step with reality, are nothing but musical soap operas (most music has been reduced to soap operas, clowns and all). The effects of this music is left unmeasured, yet society has to be the barometer of truth. Teen pregnancies, adultery, loose sexual activity, emotional irresponsibility, sexual exploitation by males and females, family decapitations with more attention paid to sexual activity than any other part of the human domain, leaves many confused about the meaning of life. R & B has been reduced to a one dimensional output of sexual material drowning in its own childishness. Controlled from the outside, it is! 20

WHAT THE MASS MEDIA IS & AIN’T WHAT THE MASS MEDIA IS & AIN’T

We are brought up with the enemies’ media surrounding our existence capturing reality, bottling it up from eye sight, and replacing it with fantasy images pale and dead. Timely patterns of death are a daily diet pushed down with polluted water. We eat, we drink and our consciousness is dulled by the cloning repetition of the white lie. Our history is locked away in colonial museums and the names, origin and race are changed to destroy the innocent. This critical component of the systematic destruction of Black folk is of life and death importance to the Culture Bandits. By allowing them to define the storm a weary truth is buried as a people is lost in confusion, self-hatred, and future-less-ness. Disjointed from the continuity of history with no defined role to continue, we can only subscribe to the agenda of the slave master or at least within the confines of acceptable struggle for acceptable goals. Confusion destroys progress and those who lose direction stop short to avoid stumbling into the future like hidden furniture in dark rooms in a land that is not ours. To create this reinforced confusion, one must be a professional liar. A liar so dedicated that they must subscribe to the lie as if it was the truth. Consequently, discussion with the enemy is hopeless, they know only one language, the language of force. For example, if you view Dr. Frances Welsing or any other Afrikan intellectual putting forth a clear, well researched position to an enemy commentator, talk show host, or news reporter, you will find that, they are never convinced of the truth. 21

WHAT THE MASS MEDIA IS & AIN’T
They will evade, lie, confuse, dodge, get angry, cry about antiSemitism, reverse racism, or some other escapist tactic. Never, I repeat never, will you hear them admit they are wrong, that his-story is wrong and that they have done a job on us. Naw, the lie must continue... Why? Because, their fragile synthetic reality is based on well constructed lies and phenomenal Culture Banditry. They stole our achievements, claimed our discoveries, said they were people they were not, seized civilizations that were not theirs, philosophies that belonged to others, religions that were not their creations and denied us the truth of our noble, dynamic ancestors. George G.M. James called it “Stolen Legacies” and his book should be sought out and read by every Afrikan person who now populates this earth. It would take volumes just to list the banditry of these barbarians. But my point is that discussion with them is as useless as talking to a white wall. They are locked in and will defend to the death their right to use us, abuse us. The mere notion of us collectively finding out the truth and moving on that truth sends chills up their collective spine. Understand, just existing equally with other peoples of the world is a reality they will resist to the last man. The Martin Luther King scenario of happy integration is a goal they want us to reach for knowing that it is unobtainable. Violently frightening to them, is a cohesive Afrikan global population. You see, they are aware of what they have stolen, who developed civilization and everything that word implies. Consequently, equal opportunity could never happen. They hold tight to discrimination as a cooling out tool over our creative genius. The key to keeping the lid on our quest to liberate ourselves from our captors is their mass media. It not only reinforces the lie but brings it to life through music, print, documentaries, film, situation comedies (sitcoms), broadcast journalism, videos etc. 22

WHAT THE MASS MEDIA IS & AIN’T
All of that is a mere support system to their system of education that bleeds the Black out of us and sends us into the world distorted, confused and in love with them... while hating ourselves! Yes, they have colonized scholarship. Their education system is a lie machine that pumps up the chest of their children, while deflating ours in an externally developed adulation for them. Consequently, the mass media is the stake through the heart, the convincing agent that seizes our consciousness, still undeveloped, and delivers it to the system of white supremacy. The results are devastating. Worse than death is the process of creating, within hue-mans, self-hatred, measured inferiority, and a damaged consciousness that effects reasoning, logic, and self-perception...damn Culture Bandits!

Then they feed on the carcass of the dead consciousness in fear of the resurrection that always comes through the power of our genetic make up. Never dead, they continue their attack through the mass media, using it as a secret agent inside our heads that overthrows all our thoughts on pride, progress and liberation. They have wanted to bury us for a long time, cover us up with the soil they captured from others and ruined in the name of profits. Or they’d love to drown us in polluted waters that they have infiltrated with their death in the name of “ye ole bottom line.” They would like to send us up in space through the hole in the ozone layer that they created with their madness. Out of synch with nature they are, and always were. In conflict with all life forms around them...they must be stopped. Enemies of man, beast, the land and seas, they must believe their lies of superiority. It is not in them to take the lead from others, even though they are unqualified to lead, they must be in control. Yet, the only thing they are really qualified to control is destruction, death and their lying machine of backward justification... their mass media. 23

WHAT THE MASS MEDIA IS & AIN’T
Having said all of that, and it had to be said, we can now go on in our quest to understand the Culture Bandits who even control the ideas in our heads. Any thinking Afrikan person must have a global perspective to understand the simplest local problem. We must also understand that the solutions to our dilemma should be a global response to their oppression and subjugation of our collective song. Music is so critically important to us, that they have always sought to control it ever since they first came into contact with us. They understand that it floats through the whole of our culture and binds each component together in a unity of purpose. For example, during one day of grieving over the death of a loved one you will hear the sound of gospel music, a touch of the blues, some jazz melodies of easy listening and the tight funk after all is said and done as the party begins to wash away the pain. Globally, Amerikkka exports our music as a chief seller for their products, culture and way of life. Our music splits the airways all over the world, because Afrikan music is from an advanced cultural form even when controlled by the Culture Bandits. All over the world, they dance to our song, they imitate our dances, way of dress, and slang. During all my trips abroad, the more I attempt to escape the controlled musical products of Amerikkka, the more I ran into them. In Jamaica, Grenada, Zimbabwe, our jams dominated their airwaves. For example, in Jamaica you hear more Black music from the states than Reggae. Encased in the songs that the mass media allows to be played, is the Amerikkkan way of life and the values found in this culture. Most of the material is the usual “musical soap operas” complete with Amerikkka’s childish approach to relationships and the exploitive nature of these musical images. 24

WHAT THE MASS MEDIA IS & AIN’T
Hardly any social comment is allowed unless it is the universal messages of a Tracy Chapman. “We gotta live together” themes are as far as this form is allowed to travel. Attempts to sabotage groups like Public Enemy is a daily activity, a never ending quest to expunge all that has not been sanctioned by the Culture Bandits. Internationally, Amerikkkan music (our song) is considered “what’s happening,” and the world plugs into the scene from Asia throughout Europe, and other points on the compass. We must realize the importance of our musical culture and seize it to liberate or it will be used to further subjugate our dreams, drown our reality and destroy our children’s tomorrows. Beware and be aware of the deadly Culture Bandits!

PRE-COMMUNICATIONS STUDY GUIDE Before we even begin to study the work of the mass media’s Culture Bandits, we must first look into our-story to set up the infrastructure for research, discussion and documentation. To pretend we all bring to the party the same basic knowledge, sensitivity and perspective, would be a waste of energy. We don’t! We know we don’t; that point we must be very clear on. Consequently, it is my responsibility to guide us into a posture for study as we focus in on what I present as the vanguard of their system of oppression...their mass media! Many offer that the Black experience is vast and diverse and one solution does not fit all Blacks. It is a cowardly backing down from the powerful mechanism of the enemy’s communications empire. We all experience their mass media the same, victimized Afrikans whose consciousness is stolen. After which, the powerful culture of our people is chewed and mutilated, then spit back at us as poisonous venom of artificial enslaving garbage. In other words, what was developed out of the daily reality of our people in response to their interaction with this society on different levels of intensity is perverted. The mold with our historical approach to culture is attacked and warded off. Reworked, remodeled, redefined into harmless co-optative, profit making porridge, toothless and very exploitable. We are then naked with no cohesive definition and no tool of perpetuation. Let us be clear on this, the mass media is not an entertainment/news/ educational series of apparatuses for the betterment of the society, or the world that they beam their anti-Afrikan Propaganda to. Media critic Dallas W. Smythe points out in his book Dependency Road: 27

PRE-COMMUNICATIONS STUDY
“The mass media of communications were systematic inventions of monopoly capitalism. The purpose is to set a daily agenda of issues, problems, values, and policies for the guidance of other institutions and the whole population. “ We must blow away the myth that the mass media in this country is either a friend, a comfortable companion against loneliness, an information carrier of truth, a documenter of history, or a provider of information needed to intelligently govern our struggle for liberation. It is the purpose of this Pre-Communications Study guide to wash clean some society given concepts, that would lead us all back into their clutches of subjugation, stereotyping, and utter confusion. Logic is the key that must be found to unlock our minds and that is our goal here. Smythe goes on to explain the capitalistic “complex of industries” which he says are led by the mass media which he correctly termed “The Consciousness Industry.” The Consciousness Industry is just that, an apparatus to scramble our consciousness so that we act against our own interest and in theirs. It also establishes itself as the authority, experts in everything and its function is to guide Amerikkka and western society through any troubled waters. He goes further to note that: “In a real sense every politico-economic system rests on the power to control information. Mature industrial countries had the advantage of being first to develop electronic communications using the radio spectrum. This use became the indispensable foundation of the capitalist politicoeconomic system.” 28

PRE-COMMUNICATIONS STUDY
We must understand this if nothing else: the media is their tool designed to perpetuate their society and the control over the world by the white collective (white supremacy/capitalism/racism). This is basic and must be digested, the alternative is to relax and believe that the so-called entertainment industry is just Amerikkka’s cultural way to pursue leisure time activity and disseminate information. This is a dangerous notion. Following this path will guarantee that your consciousness will remain underdeveloped or completely stolen. The result is a world of illusion, a fantasy existence divorced from perspectives, information, and true cultural development, while putting you back into the cages of bondage with its invisible bars. Thus, developing in you, a victim for its traps of drugs, AIDS, religious escapism, and rampant consumerism for the goods produced by our enemies for their enrichment. In addition, their media is a deadly socializing tool that establishes the norms for us and as you know, to them, normal is aping and parroting their decadent alien morals, mores and values along with a distorted self-serving world view. Children are enslaved by media products of glittery, violent, white value filled cartoons, fantasies, music video programs, children’s cable networks, and consumer gripping commercialism that keeps the appetite for products out of line with income realities. The attack on the family is never ending. The development of machomen images for the men, and soap opera queens for the women deliver in us anti-family sentiments that destroy the very same institution that could and would save us. The promotion of anti-sexual behavior (homosexuality), male studs motivated by their penis and loose whores that are all body and no mind, leads to the destruction of good men and women. Once this unprincipled behavior is digested as normal and acted out, the family erodes and disintegrates before our very eyes. 29

PRE-COMMUNICATIONS STUDY
It is the theme encased in the music, the videos, movies, cartoons, novels, history books and in the newspapers “If loving you is wrong I don’t want to do right.” Each betrayal sends a death blow to the family and extended family. As they work on our basic reoccurring urges (sexual) and play with our minds, they drape unhealthy sexual attitudes on every media product, and we accept the unwholesome as the acceptable norm. Completing the trap is an environment of drugs, AIDS, consumerism, classism, anti-Afrikan sentiment, religious intoxication, externally developed inferiority complexes, academic terrorism and, of course, free access to our minds for the Culture Bandits. But who the hell are we and why should we resist the Consciousness Industry? How do we differ from other peoples? And what is our historical role? In other words, what are we attempting to protect, obtain and perpetuate? Great Afrikan historian Chancellor Williams wrote in his classic The Destruction of Black Civilization: “The land of the Blacks was not only the ‘Cradle of Civilization’ itself but that the Blacks were once the leading people on earth; that Egypt was not only once all Black, but the very name “Egypt” was derived from the Blacks; and that the Blacks were the pioneers in the sciences, medicine, architecture, writing, and were the first builders in stone, etc.” We must take time before we journey on into the study of the Culture Bandits, and how and why they work our culture over so thoroughly. We must establish firmly who we are and our relationship to the white collective (European enslavers). To say we are Afrikan people, is not enough, we know that to be a fact, and those of us who don’t know it, will be reminded by our enemies. But who were/are the Afrikans? 30

PRE-COMMUNICATIONS STUDY
The physical evidence being unearthed daily proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are the original people and all others sprung from us. L.S. B. Leaky and others have documented for those doubters of all hues that we were/are the beginning. Dr. Frances L. Cress Welsing, M.D. laid out her interesting view, Cress Theory of Color Confrontation, dealing with the behavior of the white collective against people of color and especially against Afrikan people. To loosely run it down, she agrees that Black people are the beginning and her dynamic explanation of what she perceived as the white collective’s irrational/hostile/violent behavior toward the 90% of the world’s people (people of color) is in fact a reaction to the fear of genetic annihilation. Her research in the behavior of whites toward Blacks, in particular, should clarify to us all, the phenomena of racism, practiced to deadly precision by our enemies. On this our Elder Neely Fuller writes in his Textbook for Victims of White Supremacy: “Most white people hate Black people. The reason that most white people hate Black people is because whites are not Black people. If you know this about white people, you need to know little else. If you do not know this about white people, virtually all else that you know about them will only confuse you.” Dr. Welsing, in her famous paper, travels through the white psyche with a laser focus on answering the question of the ages. Why are these people so barbaric toward the 90% of the population of this earth termed people of color? She feels their fear of genetic annihilation leads them to enact a very paranoid love/hate relationship with Afrikan people. She views their castrations of Black men, over-protection of the white female, tanning of skin to achieve color while risking skin cancer, are just a few of the symptoms dripping like a sore on hue-manity. She writes: 31

PRE-COMMUNICATIONS STUDY
“Psychiatrists and other behavioral scientists frequently use the patterns of overt behavior towards others as an indication of what is felt fundamentally about self. If hate and lack of respect are outwardly manifested towards others, hate and lack of respect are most often found at deeper level toward the self.” Whites are not at peace with themselves nor comfortable with their color: they are fearful of extinction which causes them to be Culture Bandits. This allows them to control the culture they unconsciously feel they sprang from, while destroying all they don’t understand (which is most). And that portion which could not be used to serve white supremacy is hidden and destroyed as they attempt to possess our consciousness as a defense mechanism against our organizing efforts to perpetuate ourselves. Therefore, they nestle in our culture like sleepy rapists, they fight sleep after their foul deeds, huddled with an organic force that is not theirs, they pretend to not only be the experts and critics, but also originators. They easily attempt to explain away: Elvis Presley, Tom Jones, Peggy Lee, Mel Torme, Gerry Mulligan, Josef Zawifnul, The Beastie Boys (beast indeed), Kenny G, Joe Cocker, George Michael, Robert Palmer, New Kids on the Block, Rolling Stones, Beatles, Madonna (super sick) and on and on. Welsing feels we are at war with the white collective. Because of their deadly fear, they are constantly struggling to decrease the populations of people of color, especially Blacks, who produce the most color producing element; melanin. Thus we are viewed as the greatest and most feared threat. Consequently, they arm themselves with tools of genocide: all types of weaponry, chemical warfare like AIDS etc., birth control, drugs of all types, and I would add, the Consciousness Industry’s process of Culture Banditry prepares our people for genocide. The very loss of 32

PRE-COMMUNICATIONS STUDY
identity through their mass media and institutions set us up to be victimized by their weaponry. They are so good that their process even gets the victims actively involved with their own slaughter. Other opiums used by the Culture Bandits are religion, consumerism, class consciousness (which means allegiance to them) and confusion, which is the enemy of progress and revolution. Have you ever wondered why Amerikkka and indeed the western world is preoccupied with our culture? It should be understood that they feel it is a threat because of its binding nature, its global continuity, and its rich history, that proves it out produces their backward systems of social formations. They fear and hate our culture, while at the same time, they are in awe of it and our endless reservoir of creativity. The songs, the dances, the language, the clothes and how they are worn, the hairstyles, the definition of cool, the athletic approach to games, the philosophies of life, the developments of religion and, in short, every aspect of life is at their disposal for invasion, destruction and the development of a caucasianizing captivity... they are: Culture Bandits! Another famous Afrikan historian Dr. Yosef ben-Jochannan had this to say in his classic work Blackman of the Nile and his Family: “The Black man (indigenous Afrikan and his descendants) must once more write about himself, his culture, and his continent (Alkebulan, Afrika, Ethiopia, Libya, etc.); for no one cares about another’s history. Moreover, when a man’s history is written by his enslavers or captors, regardless of his master’s religion or economic philosophy, such a history is always distorted to suit the master-slave relationship; which is the only possible result from such an enforced union.” 33

PRE-COMMUNICATIONS STUDY
Dr. Ben, as he is known to the Afrikan community, goes on to establish in us the need to study our history from the sources that sprang from our culture and are linked with us. He continues: “Such paternalism does not have to be vindictive. The mere fact of the relationship’s existence forces one to feel in fact superior to the other. And if the history of such a union is of a very long duration, many of the captured begin to accept their status of inferiority. They then allow themselves to be renamed accordingly. With their new name a new psychology naturally develops; and with the new mind, a new docility...this was done to the “NEGRO.” Yeah, they’re Culture Bandits and consciousness thieves who redefine all we do, why, when, and for whom. But as Dr. Ben has noted, they even redefined us from the Afrikans we were/are into “Negroes.” Once trapping us in a state of confusion and disarming us of our culture, they set up the machinery to keep us in that state of lost huemanity. This was the work of the Culture Bandits. Malcolm X taught us that: “You know that we have been a people who hated our Afrikan Characteristics. We hated our heads, we hated the shape of our nose, we wanted one of those long dog-like noses, you know; we hated the color of our skin, hated the blood of Afrika that was in our veins. And in hating our features and our skin and our blood, why, we had to end up hating ourselves. And we hated ourselves. Our color became to us a chain - we felt that it was holding us back; Our color became to us like a prison which we felt was keeping us confined, not letting us go this way or that way. We felt that all of these restrictions were based solely upon our color, and the psychological reaction to that would be that as long as we felt imprisoned or chained or trapped by Black skin, Black features and Black 34

PRE-COMMUNICATIONS STUDY
blood, that skin and those features and that blood holding us back automatically had to become hateful to us. And it became hateful to us.” And Malcolm was correct, it is a point we can not deny. However, we seem to get lost as we attempt to explain how this hatred came about. Too many of us do not deal with the theft of our consciousness through overt oppression and symptomatic institutionalized antiAfrikan propaganda. It was and always has been the work of the Culture Bandits to dislodge us from our culture. Whether it was the overseer’s whip, or a Walt Disney cartoon, we must admit they have been successful. The confusion of our people as to their basic identity supplies the evidence that the process worked and continues to work, as a large portion of our people still deny Afrika. Without truly understanding what Afrika was/is, and its role as the foundation of mankind, they flee the label of Afrikan. In an interview with our late genius, Cheikh Anta Diop of Senegal, which was published in Black Books Bulletin and later put in that great time capsule called Great Afrikan Thinkers edited by Ivan Van Sertima and published by Transaction Books, Shawna Moore’s interview with Diop gave up this gem: “When we talk of racism in antiquity, it is important to understand that racism as we know it, could not have been expressed in the same way vis-a-vis Blacks, for the simple reason that it was Blacks who had monopolized technical, cultural and industrial know-how. The other races had to pattern their technological, cultural and religious developments after the accomplishments of Egyptian technology, science, culture and arts. The Greeks were forced to come humbly and drink at the fountain of Egyptian culture.” 35

PRE-COMMUNICATIONS STUDY
In the famous interview Diop goes on to explain how Alexander the so-called great was in awe of the Egypt he came upon. Even that barbarian knew the value of this Afrikan nation as it surpassed all that he had seen and known. “After conquering the entire eastern Mediterranean basin, Alexander went as far as to set up the capital of the empire in Egypt, not in continental Greece or Macedonia. Don’t you find that strange? It would be like France setting up its capital in Dakar, rather then Paris, after having achieved a colonial empire. Alexander’s decision is indicative of the cultural ascendancy exercised by Egypt over non-Black peoples, even at a time when she had already lost her national sovereignty. Helena’s civilization was indebted to Egypt beyond measure. It was to Egypt that all of the Greek scientists of the Helena’s period came in search of knowledge. Hence, racism in the modern sense of the word could not have been exercised by whites against Blacks in the same way during antiquity.”

These things are not common knowledge to our people. Consequently, as Dr. Ben has said, the loss of our identity makes us view others as superior and we taught them. Couple this with what Dr. Welsing views as their fear of genetic annihilation, and we began to get a feel for the reason they developed into Culture Bandits. It was through psychological, economic, and political necessity. In short, they had conquered, through unprecedented barbarism, the Afrikan, his land and his culture. But what they had captured was far superior to anything they could have ever developed. To justify the captivity and exploitation of our people and settle the struggle within themselves over the fear of becoming extinct, they perpetuated a fraud and claimed all that we had developed as theirs. They are murdering, lying Culture Bandits!

To portray the victim as the criminal, is a basic tenet of the Culture Bandits. Even though they stole everything they could understand 36

PRE-COMMUNICATIONS STUDY
from our societies, wherever they came upon us, they also destroyed more and that which they tried to build upon, they claimed as their creation. Let me make one more point here: In Stolen Legacy, by George G.M. James, he speaks of the Greeks you and I were taught were the basis of everything that the White man is supposed to be. Everything that we must look up to and emulate. But let us listen to what James has uncovered and you will hear this theme over and over throughout the work of our historians, who are telling our-story through dynamic research. James wrote: “After nearly five thousand years of prohibition against the Greeks, they were permitted to enter Egypt for the purpose of their education. First through the Persian invasion and second through the invasion of Alexander the Great. From the sixth century B.C. therefore to the death of Aristotle (322 B.C.) the Greeks made the best of their chance to learn all they could about Egyptian culture; most students received instruction directly from Egyptian Priests, but after the invasion by Alexander the Great, the Royal temples and libraries were plundered and pillaged, and Aristotle’s school converted the library at Alexandria into a research centre. There is no wonder then, that the production of the unusually large number of books ascribed to Aristotle has proven a physical impossibility, for any single man within a life time.” Is this not a Culture Bandit of the highest order? Yet, our children and the youth of the world are taught to look up to this pale plagiarizer, who stole and claimed our wisdom. Further, what if we had institutions that taught the true story of the Afrikan to our people? Not one of us, not one, I repeat, would want to claim to be, someone or something else. 37

PRE-COMMUNICATIONS STUDY
Armed with our collective wisdom, achievements and glory, we would have a built-in vaccine against their genocidal programs and their major components of drugs, AIDS, alcoholism, anti-sexual behavior, consumerism, classism, physical mutilation, and the phenomena of dealing against our interests. We traveled that far back for a reason. It is important that we all realize that we are now dealing with the sons and daughters of the original Culture Bandits, and they have done their parents proud. Their ability to steal the culture from under our noses goes undetected, in the main, because we have no functioning definition of culture, nor do we identify with anything or anyone but them...the Culture Bandits. In the Philosophy and Opinions of Marcus Garvey he explains education in a new light, one that would disarm the Culture Bandits and place them exposed naked before you: “You can be educated in soul, vision and feeling, as well as in the mind. To see your enemy and know him is a part of the complete education of man; to spiritually regulate one’s self is another form of the higher education that fits man for a nobler place in life, and still, to approach your brother by the feeling of your own humanity, is an education that softens the ills of the world and makes us kind indeed.” Garvey made it plain and digestible, but let’s look deeper at the words of this renown Afrikan Patriot. He goes beyond many who have an unnatural love for those who have inflicted on us, for centuries, the type of murder, brutality, physical and consciousness castration, slavery, neo-slavery and every other form of degradation a people can suffer. He says, “to see your enemy and know him is a part of the complete education of man.” And so it is! However, the mass media machine 38

PRE-COMMUNICATIONS STUDY
of the Culture Bandits bombards our people with the notion of submission to their tyranny because it is in the interest of their genocidal agenda. Reverse the message, and beam to them, that they should put down their arms, love all people and “study war no more”, why, they would kill you. Samuel F. Yette in his famous contribution The Choice dealt with the final solution component of Amerikkka’s plans for its prisoners of war (slaves): “The obsolescence of Blacks in America and their will to survive nobly - demand and fight for their rights - provide some with an adequate rationale for Black extinction. Legal sanctions for systematic invasion of Black sanctuaries homes, schools, and establishments - were signed into law before Congress adjourned for the fall, 1970, elections. But, in America, as in Asia, these essentially military measures bespoke the failure of insincere or basic unsound efforts to help Black people.” Obviously, this is the reason this work, Culture Bandits, was brought into existence. This is not a mere intellectual exercise, but a critical Working Paper that is organic in nature and will change with the tactical developments of the Culture Bandits. Yet, it is not just about survival, it is all about reclaiming what is our heritage and gleaning that which is applicable with this contemporary world and building a new reality from there. This piece is a frontal assault on our enemies and their methodology of confusion. This Pre-Study was necessary if we are all going to start together to seriously deal with their vanguard in their system of oppression... their mass media. 39

PRE-COMMUNICATIONS STUDY
Welded to it is our destruction wrapped in glittery Hollywood like packaging, subliminal subjugation, and anti-Afrikan propaganda. The purpose of this book is to make you sensitive to their advances on your consciousness. Their military power is useless against us and any other people who have a strong will and dedication to their own liberation. Witness Vietnam and all the violence heaped on their small backs, yet they chased the Amerikkkan military machine out of there with its drawers on fire. It is clear that when the firing stops, white people are in their most deadly state. For example, after the death dealing slave and colonial systems with the documentation of the brutal deaths of tens of millions of our people, not one, I repeat, not one white person did a minute of time in jail, nor have any been executed for war crimes against our people. Furthermore, as the revolution in Southern Afrika continues, whites of the region who are guilty of the daily murder of our people, don’t even fear retribution, justice, or prosecution for their war crimes. Why then, should whites stop the genocidal machinery when there is no punishment for the crime? The mass media will steer all toward the notion of living together as the goal and their approach to education the ideal. They cleverly mask the crimes and never, I repeat never, even consider that Black justice is duty bound to punish those who committed war crimes against our people. Integration is supposed to be our reward for centuries of suffering. Living with them and civilizing them should be our goal. However our true goal has to be justice and it is a betrayal of our ancestors to let them get away with crimes against hue-manity. Many Blacks and whites will move uneasily in their chairs at these sentiments, however, none can deny that justice must be served before 40

PRE-COMMUNICATIONS STUDY
the eyes of our children and theirs. Why, 90 year old so-called Jews are still chasing feeble Nazis across the stars for war crimes. What the hell is the difference? Consciousness!

Their trickyology at the negotiating table is legend. Their mass media and its development of a consciousness that drones us into neoservitude is more deadly then any fire power we could imagine. For example, most of us don’t see the invisible hand controlling and dealing the drug war that is ravaging our community. What we see is television and movies defining reality for us and their images project local problems, community and internal inferiority. And we function on this as if it were proven fact. We organize to solve the problem as if they are not the problem. We invite the local police, who protect the drug trade and make profits from the carnage. We then allow them to organize Town Watch sentries pushing 911 to summon our enemy to document the damage. That is the result of effective Culture Bandit work, that masks their deeds as they pretend to be part of the solution to the problems they perpetuate.

After the cries of “off the pigs” and “control your community” in the 60’s and 70’s the mass media swung into gear to suppress the movement of our people toward liberation. Necessity gave birth to Black exploitation movies, “we gotta live together songs,” Spy flicks and liberal created films and t.v. sitcoms that nailed us further down under the ladder of disrespect. We will deal with all of this in volume two of Culture Bandits. For now, let us come together on the fact that we are the original people of this planet and we were a scientific people whose great works were indeed the total knowledge of mankind. Our use of knowledge gave birth to the disciplines of science, mathematics, medicine, astronomy, astrology, engineering, architecture and every other building block to the advancement of civilization. 41

PRE-COMMUNICATIONS STUDY
We should now be prepared to dissect the workings of the mass media of our enemies as it takes the vanguard in our destruction. Meanwhile, it hides information, distorts facts, and down right lies to us as we die globally from its effective poisoning of the consciousness. Electronically speaking, we are being whipped down to mere shadows of ourselves. Once down, we are spread open and violently raped of all things Afrikan, planting a seed of self hatred in our bodies and child-like love and obedience to the rapists in our consciousness. As Afrikans we are all but dead and we respond as they respond, consequently, they are never confronted with the terror we could bring if we truly knew this was all about the death of the first race...The Afrikans!
