An Obama Presidency: America's Great Deception
Presidential candidate Barack Obama should be seen as an American illusion - a false hope for Black people and an American impostor to the freedom lovers of the democratic free world. Obama is paraded before the world in order to make other governments of the world, and Black people, think that the United States of America has changed its policies and is no longer a hypocrite to the fundamental principles of civil liberty. But my people, and governments of the world, the truth is America's "paramount issue" exists still!
The "paramount issue," the problem of inequality between Blacks and whites in the country, is as evident today as it was in 1858 in the days of Mr. Abraham Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln's chief concern was how other nations would view America's handling of the slave issue. Mr. Lincoln had this to say: "I hate it (slavery) because it deprives our republican example of its just influence in the world - enables the enemies of free institutions (other governments) with plausibility to taunt us as hypocrites - causing the real friends of freedom to doubt our sincerity, and especially because it forces so many good men amongst ourselves into an open war? Criticizing the Declaration of Independence, and insisting that there is no right principle of action but self-interest." You well know that the Civil War followed.
My reason for mentioning Mr. Lincoln here is that he defines the position in society Blacks would have, after slavery. What is the former and the present status of Blacks in the United States? Mr. Lincoln had this to say: "Free them all, and keep them among us as underlings. Is it quite certain this betters their condition? I think I would not hold one of them in slavery, at any rate; ? free them, and make them politically and socially our equal? My own feelings will not admit to this; and if mine would, we well know that the great mass of white people will not, ... we cannot, then, make them equals" (Abraham Lincoln His Book, by J. McCAN DAVIS 1909). Now! There you have it! Are we still in the position of "underlings" in America? This question yet hangs over America's head. Underlings:" are we yet underlings in the United States of America? Inequality between Blacks and whites persists still. Does Presidential candidate Barack Obama speak of a change in our unequal status in the United States? No!
We were released from plantation slavery in 1865 as America's "underlings," but we were not given equal rights, or any thing else. Do we exist today as underlings, in perpetuity, seemingly forever? Both the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad tackled this major U.S. problem in the 1950's. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., until 1968, had a dream that Black children and white children would walk hand in hand. This dream was not fulfilled. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, until 1975, asked for some Southern states, some land that we could call our own, and for America's government to take care of our financial needs for the next 20 years until we could go for self. His prayer fell on deaf ears.
What has happened in the last 33 years to make you think that the American government has changed the unequal relationship? Katrina, Rodney King, Jena 6, and the Sean Bell cases are just a few examples of the racial animosity in America. Yes, Congress did apologize for slavery recently, however this apology came in the form of a resolution from the House of Representatives only, and is meaningless and non-binding, having no force of law. The Senate and the Judicial and Executive branches of government did not support the resolution. Ain't nothing changed.
Why would a Black man run for President of the United States if not to aim at solving the "paramount issue" of America and to settle the question of reparations? First off, he ain't Black - presidential candidate Barack Obama. My people, do not lose your hopes on him by believing in, and voting for, him. He ain't Black! He doesn't pretend even to be one of us. He is not like you. He ain't Black! We cannot say he is a wolf in sheep's clothing. No, he doesn't even pretend that he is like you. It appears that He wants to be white, but he ain't white either. He, presidential candidate Barack Obama, dismisses our claim for reparations. He states words to the effect: reparations should go into a fund for better schooling for all. He ain't Black!
All people in America have not suffered 400 years of plantation slavery and its lingering effects, including Presidential candidate Barack Obama. He was raised in a white environment by white people. He even claims Presidential candidate John McCain to be his cousin. What I'm getting at is Barack Obama does not have the mindset of a Black person that has suffered the effects of plantation slavery. He does not have the same feelings as the children of slaves. He does not know the extent of that pain and has no idea of what it is like to be uprooted from one's identity, or to live the life of a dead man with no human rights. (In his speech, he treated our call to America for equal justice as if we, Afrodescendants, do not exist.)
Secondly, one element of reparations, where we are concerned, is to not only receive a paycheck, but to have our human rights restored and recognized, thus regaining lost ties or partially lost ties, joining on to each other to become a human family once again (ethnogenesis), having the recognition of the United Nations and enjoying the human dignity that other families of the earth enjoy. Human families such as the Chinese, Korean, Iranian and Japanese still have their mother tongue, culture and religion. Our mother tongue, culture and religion were, by force, taken from us during the sojourn into plantation slavery and its lingering effects. We were robbed of our essential essence, and we still are. Does the democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama not want us to have this? We well know that the United States Government does not want us to have our essence, does not want us to join on with one another and become a human family once again, from its conduct exercised in the United Nations, in 2005.
Some countries in the United Nations want Afrodescendants (so-called African-Americans) to have their human rights and to be restored to the human families of the earth. How do I know? Because I, Silis Muhammad, have been there in the United Nations for the last fifteen years, talking to, and observing, UN officials as they demonstrated their concern for the human rights of Black people,
Afrodescendants. They have provided Sub-Commission sanctioned seminars in Honduras and Peru, and collected leaders of Afrodescendants throughout North America, South America, Central America, and the Slavery Diaspora (some 250 million of us) in an attempt to place us under one umbrella.
I also was present in the United Nations when the Human Rights Department was torn down. I know, first hand, what the United States did to tear it down because they did not want us, and over 210 million Afrodescendants, to have our human rights. The U.S. government tore it down along with the help of other governments from around the world who had similar problems. Though China, Iran, Russia, Korea, India, Norway, Ukraine, Chile-- many African and Asian countries and other like governments of the world who do not hold 250 million Afrodescendants from their human rights and reparations, opposed this, the Human Rights department was destroyed!
Where does presidential candidate Barack Obama stand on this issue? Solidly behind the United States government, as is evidenced in the New America Media article, "McCain and Obama Make Reparations a Campaign Taboo." Does Barack Obama seek a change in the United States' denial of human rights for Afrodescendants, since his campaign platform is change? Emphatically, no! According to the Scripture, the people who suffered 400 years of slavery are to, afterwards, leave their slave master with great substance ... according to the Scripture. Barack Obama supports the United States' denial of reparations and human rights for Afrodescendants. Like the United States, Presidential candidate Barack Obama does not want reparations for Afrodescendants. He says that a better remedy for America is for ALL to get better education, healthcare, welfare, and so on. But ALL are not suffering the psychologically damaging effects of plantation slavery and its lingering effects.
My people, and governments of the world, Presidential candidate Barack Obama is America's great illusion, a false hope for Black people, and is being used to hoodwink the world into making it believe we all have equal rights. And we really do not. While the platform of Presidential candidate Barack Obama is change, he makes taboo the issue of reparations-restoration on the campaign trail. The mere fact that reparations is made a taboo on the campaign trail, by both Barack Obama and John McCain, is proof that it is an issue on the minds of the American people; or, that the major issues of Afrodescendants are once again swept under the table.
Reparations-restoration is on the tongue of every minor grass-roots leader of Blacks in America, and it is on the tongues of some major leaders of Blacks. To be sure, reparations-restoration is, at present, a household word within the Black and white communities. I say to the real friends of fundamental principles of civil liberty - freedom, justice and equality - to the world over, and to my people, ain't nothing changed, and nothing will change, until you change it!

RESPONSES to Mr. Muhammad's Press Release!
In a message dated 9/6/2008 2:09:51 P.M. Eastern Standard Time, email@example.com writes
What a ridiculous press release! I find Mr. Muhammads notion of who is "Black" not just plain wrong and immature but also insulting. So Barack Obama is NOT BLACK because he is not a descendant of slaves in America? Then I guess by that definition the "Black Race" is not older than 500 years. This stance is the product of wanting to be radical more than wanting to make sense. Lets get some points right;
Reparationists’ note: Mr. Awe, read the U.N. definition on page 1 of www.2myRepair.INFO. The people who have lost their Mother tongue (and all other Human Rights) are defined here.
1) African-Americans are NOT the only Blacks in the world nor do they have monopoly to determine who is or isnt Black.
2) The status or sub-group of African-American is a very recent phenomenon (less than 500 yrs old). Blacks existed before the circumstances (i.e. Slavery) that produced an "African-American" sub group.
3) How many African-Americans are 100% Black including Mr. Muhammad himself? So, if Barack isnt Black because he has White blood also in him, then African-Americans arent Black either.
4) Is Reparations really the paramount issue, according to who? Well, it doesnt seem to be the paramount issue for the millions of Blacks who have voted for and donated to Obama. It seems the economy, healthcare, mortgage crisis, education and the war are more important to these people so please stop putting words in their mouths.
Barack Obama is not running in hopes of solving all the ills affecting the Black community, that would be a naive and foolish aspiration.
But more importantly, I for one, dont need nor expect him to solve all my problems. I wouldnt be a Man if that were my need and expectation. All I ,and I would assume the Black community desire, is a conducive environment within which we can strive to achieve our respective aspirations for ourselves and our families. And Barack Obama has clearly stated his plans on how he intends to create such a conducive environment. I dont want him to clothe, feed, educate and raise my son. He is my son, so I will do those things myself. I did those things under Bush so I think I can do it under Obama.

NJM: Mr. Awe, can you see your error?
“What a ridiculous press release! I find Mr. Muhammad’s notion of who is "Black" not just plain wrong and immature but also insulting. So Barack Obama is NOT BLACK because he is not a descendant of slaves in America?”
NJM: Mr. Awe: Why did you become so emotionally unglued?
You made yourself look rather foolish and immature by attacking Mr. Muhammad’s character. I do not want to appeal to your emotions; instead, I want to appeal to your intelligence. Why do I want to appeal to your intelligence?
When one gets too emotional; their judgment becomes clouded, and common sense is thrown under the (moving) bus and they missed the whole point. I want to separate your emotions from the facts, so you can see the crystal, clear, pure, truth.
Mr. Muhammad explained in detail what he meant about Senator Barack Obama, not being black. You read what
he meant or you have a serious problem comprehending what you read.
My 15 year old daughter read the same thing and she understood exactly what Mr. Muhammad meant. What
reading and comprehension level are you on, ELEMENTARY?
You missed the whole point. It is obvious to us all that that Senator Barack Obama is a black man. But you wanted to disagree without understanding what you read. Rather than accept Mr. Muhammad’s explanation, you decided to focus on Barack Obama’s physical appearance only and reject his mindset. Are you aware that they are two different and distinct things?
Are you aware that many blacks do not consider Dr. Condoleezza Rice and Justice Clarence Thomas as "black"? Are you that far removed from the Reparations/Black Liberation Movement that you can't comprehend this? Have you ever heard of the term, "Oreo"?
Well renowned Historian, Frank Tannenbaum explained the cultural transformation of the black man in his book, Slave and Citizen. On page 41 of his book, he said, “The Negro is a (Judge) Magistrate on the city bench in New York, a member of Congress; he is a Senator and member of the cabinet in other places. He is part of the nation. He’s active, vocal, self assertive, and a living force. He has become culturally a European, or, if you will, an American, A white man with a black face.”
If you go back and read the statement again you will find that he was referring to Barack Obama’s mindset. Buckle up your seat belt, slow down and calmly re-read the statement again. When you read what Mr. Muhammad meant, are you willing to apologize for your misunderstanding?
Here is Mr. Muhammad's statement:
Mr. Muhammad said “Why would a Black man run for President of the United States if not to aim at solving the “paramount issue” of America and to settle the question of reparations? First off, he ain’t Black – presidential candidate Barack Obama. My people do not lose your hopes on him by believing in, and voting for, him. He ain’t Black! He doesn’t pretend even to be one of us.

1. An attitude, disposition, or mood.
2. An intention or inclination.
A mature man would acknowledge his error! He would not worry about his ego.

Peace and Blessings, Brother Najee, Mr. Muhammad, Brother Awe
Mr. Awe you are becoming awe-fully close to analyzing politics like a white American. Mr. Awe there are more important things at stake for the Africans in America other than health care, and reformed schools. In fact, the books and curriculums are so lily white and full of lies taught by a disproportionate amount of white American teachers, that the school system cannot be reformed.
I don't think Brother Awe that you truly understands the political interest of African American people who have not been compensated for slavery and slavery effects. Maybe you should read UN General Assembly Resolution 60/147 which applies to African American slave descendants who are entitled to self-determination, compensation, restitution, rehabilitation and a guarantee of non-repetition. i.e. reparations
Mr. Obama is not really our president, even though we would like to think so. Mr. Obama belongs to the state of Israel, and the defense department. The day after he was nominated he and Hillary Clinton were the invited guests of the Israeli political action group [AIPAC] and he gave a speech ensuring the existence of Israel and pledging billions of dollars in jet planes and aid to Israel. Mr. Obama, on the other hand has avoided the huge debt owed to those who built the trillion dollar American infrastructure under the UN Resolution. Obama is staying away from black people like we have the plague
Mr. Obama pledges support of the independent Iowan farmers while ignoring the plight of the Black farmers and the independence of Black people.
Mr. Obama also support the invasion in Afghanistan [oil, energy and defense] without any articulable reason other than he wants to get Osama Bin Laden. Now Mr. Awe this sounds extremely like Mr. Bush and his disinformation to the American people about Sadaam Hussein.
Moreover, Mr. Awe if you do not think we are concerned about reparations you are wrong, we are concerned about reparations more than the crumbs of health care. Mr. Awe we cannot wait until Obama becomes president, although many of us are lying low now, because he is better to deal with than McCain.
We will test your Mr. Obama, because so far he sounds more like Bush, than Dr. King or Malcolm X, who supported our political interest. Mr. Awe I want you to know that most of us suffering in poverty, crime ridden neighborhoods, in poor schools, with high unemployment rates don't give a damn about going after Sadaam or Bin Laden-these are illegal invasion into other countries sovereignties. We Want reparations now and we will test whether Obama is for human rights, or is he just another yarmulke wearing politician, who denounces everything Black like Clarence 'Uncle' Thomas and Conde-sleeza Rice in support of American Hegemony.
Hegemony is the attempt to dominate the world through invasion and war to control energy. I think Mr. Awe you should study political science and read something more than the papers. Other than that good luck in your Campaign, because we are for Obama too.

RESPONSE from AWE to NJMuhammad & Dr. Mustafa Ansari
Date: Saturday, September 13, 2008, 7:51 PM
Peace Najee Muhammad, Dr. Mustafa Ansari and everybody else,
I don't have the intent nor the time to answer refutations to arguments I havent made. My initial response was in reaction to Mr. Silis Muhammad's press release challenging the "Blackness" of Mr. Obama. That was the scope of my arguments. I never examined Mr. Obama's policies in any detail, nor did I even expressly indicate that I was voting for him or that I was even qualified to vote at all. I never indicated that I was for or against and wars or invasions. Those were all additional arguments which you assigned to me through some sort of magic.
Bro. Najee sought to clarify Mr. Silis Muhammad's press release by saying that he was referring to the "mindset" and not necessarily the physical. Nonetheless, even that mindset which was produced by the suffering of plantation slavery is still less than 500 years old. There was a "mindset" before that. No matter how I look at the press release, the claims in it are still ridiculous. For example, one of the premises Mr. Silis Muhammad uses to buttress his claims, is that Obama was raised by Whites. And African-Americans were raised by who? WHITES!!
At the end of the day, you can release a million press releases, and post another million articles on theBlacklist, claiming that reparations is the paramount issue and that there are MORE important things than "healthcare and reformed schools" for Blacks in America, but Obama got 9 in 10 of all Black votes during the primary. What those millions of black votes are saying is that Mr. Silis Muhammad's press release is an illegit, self-imposed mouth piece for Black America.
Date: Sun, 14 Sep 2008 08:01:15
First of all let me say that I Think brother Silas Muhammad Press Release is a wonderful piece of journalism about Mr. Obama, the other thing is that I have learned that no matter what is written on this inter net on any given topic, you will find somebody that is not going to agree with what is written, no matter how obviously factual the piece written may be or how lack of the facts may be, so that is a given, and a lot of Time addressing those who has no intent to be reasoned with, such is a waste of Time engaging those that disagree with the facts embodied in that which has been written, such as the Press Release shared on this internet, written by The Honorable Silas Muhammad with Obama being the main subject matter.
To any Thinking Black so call Afrikan, there will be no disagreement with what Brother Muhammad has shared with us in his Press Release and it is obvious that most, if not all Afrikan Americans, will not be able to digest what the Minister Muhammad has shared with us regarding Mr. Obama.
To be able to appreciate what Brother Muhammad has shared with us in his Press Release, require for you to know the meaning and purpose of your Blackness and it also require for you to know and understand America and America Politics, as well as Global Politics, without that knowledge, then yes, you will be in opposition to what Brother Muhammad is teaching us regarding the Obama identity and his Politics and neither, relate to the True identity of the Black so call Afrikan and our needs, not in body nor in spirit, beloved, and this do have everything to do with Mr. Obama the Person and Obama the Politician.
Can You Understand That, Beloved?
Be Kind To Your Selves, Beloved.
RESPONSE from SHAKIRA ABDUL-ALI to Elder Osiris, NJMuhammad, Dr. Mustafa Ansari & AWE, and The Blacklist
From: SHAKIRA ABDUL-ALI
Date: Sunday, September 14, 2008, 12:36 PM
Greetings and Ramadan Kareem, I would probably be a much more active participant on this list if more
folks would opt to be a bit more pragmatic than seems tasteful here.
We have TWO CHOICES HERE, people. We have Sen. Obama, an American of African descent, who openly carries an Afrocentric identity, and we have Sen. John McCain, who openly carries the identity of a cultural conservative (read: racist, classist) and an EXTREME MILITARY HAWK. THOSE are the choices we have. African Americans consititute just about 1 out of 10 Americans. It is simply a pipe dream that we will EVER have a President - Black, White or Brown, who will put the concerns and interests of Black people before all others. Unless
and until those statistics shift radically.
Obama, I believe rightly, is not running to be Pres of Black America. He is running to be Pres. of America. That said, I believe that Bro. Silas was correct: If we want change; if we want reparations, we have to do the heavy lifting. For the past 15+ years, Congressman Conyers has, thankfully, kept that door open, with every new year, when he presents House Bill #40 to study reparations. WE ARE THE ONES who can help him to breathe life into that opening with our activism and organization. How dare we try to place that burden on Obama, who probably wouldn't even be eligible for repair, based on the fact that he's not a slave descendent. If we do the work to persuade the majority of congress - the House and the Senate - to put reparations up for a positive vote, I would BET that a Pres. Obama would sign that bill into law, and I would bet equally that a Pres. McCain would not.
My two cents. Thanks.
ANSWER from NJMuhammad
Why would you cherry pick Mr. Muhammad’s press release? Why would you support Barack Obama after it was
explained that he does not have Afro descendants’ best interest in mind? (Justice/Reparations) Could this be because you yourself, like Barack Obama, are of African descent also? After viewing your web blog, I understand better as to why you support Obama. He and you have more in common. You both are not Afro descendant!
African descent means that you are directly from African lineage and NEVER went through the slavery process of the middle passage.
“Afro descendants” was a distinction that was put forth by the United Nations (U.N.), which is where Afro descendants’ case (Descendants of America’s slaves) is on the record. This means that you (and Barack Obama) are OUTSIDE of the triangle between the Judge (U.N.), the Defendant (America) and the Plaintiff (Afro descendants). Since you are outside of this triangle, any and all of what you say goes for nothing.
Unfortunately, there are some who will give credence to what you have to say. They don’t realize that you are riding the gravy train (on biscuit wheels) that Afro descendants made. All immigrants come over here and jockey their way to the front of citizenship, and then thumb their noses at Afro descendants. Immigrants never went through slavery and segregation (Jim Crow Laws).
Barack Obama projects himself that he is like Dr. Martin Luther King; but he is not worthy of tying Dr. King’s shoelaces. Dr. King would roll over in his grave if he knew that Senator Barack Obama denied blacks reparations. Why was he referred to as the drum major for justice? 
Dr. King was not raised in a white household. Neither was I raised in a white household like Senator Barack Obama.
I was raised in a black-household. Therefore my experience in America is different from Senator Barack Obama’s. Were you raised in a white-household?
Like all African Americans, I was culturally conditioned but not to the extent of Senator Barack Obama. He was raised, taught and trained by his white mother and white grand parents to think white; therefore he was culturally conditioned with a white mind-set.
After being taught the knowledge of God, Self and the Devil, my awareness was elevated and my scope was broadened. After my awareness was elevated and my scope broadened, I rejected the white-mind set and those who perpetuate injustices against my people.
The reason why Michael Jordan was referred to as AIR JORDAN was because he broadened his scope in the game of basketball. He also elevated his game. He did not limit his game. My point is when you do not elevate your thinking, you won’t see the big picture. I also would like to know what Organization that you belong to that is helping make a social change for Black people. (New Black Panther Party, N’Cobra, SCLC, Nation Of Islam) Or, are you just another critic on the sideline?
Blacks who do not have a thorough knowledge of God, Self and the Devil, can easily be deceived by someone with a white-mindset. Until they broaden their scope and elevate their mind and think critically; they will be deceived by the white-mindset. One who has broadened his scope and elevated his mind can easily recognize the white mind-set.
On page 94, of the book, “An Oriental View of American Civilization” No Yong Park (Pao) said, “The greatness of a nation does not depend on the size of its territory, or the number of its population, or the strength of its army and navy; it rests on its ability to maintain Justice, justice that will insure every man what is due him, be reward or punishment.”
Why would Senator Barack Obama reject the idea of reparation for descendants of slaves? That is not insuring that blacks receive justice. Reparation is good for Japanese Americans, but it is not good for blacks? Get real!!! Where is the justice in that?
I believe you are limiting your scope and not elevating your mind so you can see the bigger picture. Limiting your scope is like black people voting for Senator Barrack Obama for President only because he is black; so he can make history.
That is also like many of the women in the Democratic Party, who plan to vote for Republican Presidential candidate, John McCain, simply because his Vice Presidential running mate is a white woman. (Sarah Palin) Where is the Democratic Party’s loyalty? Many of the women in the Democratic Party know Obama is qualified but they can identify with Sarah Palin, so they are going to jump from the Democratic ship and vote for McCain. There is no loyalty. It’s emotions, for the most part.
Let’s say, for argument, McCain wins and he goes to war with Russia. Then there would be wars going on 3 fronts. Their white sons would start dying in great numbers and the economic infrastructure in America would start falling and these women would not be able to put food on the table. Many of them will regret ever voting for McCain. (Emotionalism)
My point is, the women don’t see the bigger picture, a possible war with Russia.
The mind and the head is part of the body. The mind rests in the head. Why discuss one without discussing the other? Can’t you see that both go hand in hand or part of the same body?
That’s what wrong with the vast majority of black people today; they have limited their scope. They are setting themselves up to be deceived again. They should broaden their scope, so that they can see the bigger picture.
If they were to broaden their scope and think critically, they could see the bigger picture. But they refuse to broaden their scope of thinking. Black voters should tell Obama that he must address the issue of reparation.
Why should we as a people suppress reparations because he wants to make history by becoming the first black President with a white mind-set? Is making history, greater than black people receiving collective justice from America? (Reparation)
Do you think the Jews would simply vote for someone simply because of their physical characteristic or their mind-set?
Do you think the (Jews) members of APAIC, would simply vote for Senator Barrack Obama if he would not support the State of Israel? The answer is no.
Then why would black people vote for Obama when he has said reparations for blacks is not the answer? Why vote for a Blackman with a white mind-set. He is a black man who can not feel your pain and suffering.
What did the blacks in America receive? They received a half-baked apology 145 years after the Emancipation Proclamation.
They are voting for someone who does not believe in reparations.
Didn’t the Jewish survivors of the Holocaust want reparations for their pain and suffering?
Why don’t you? Is it wrong for us to want justice from America too?
Don’t you think that 300 years of lost wages, slave labor, and black peoples’ suffering from slavery’s lingering effects should be a priority?
It took 145 years for the government to apologize for slavery.
A President addressed the issue of emancipating the slaves and a President should also address the issue of reparation. Do you agree or disagree?
Obama seems to be taking blacks’ votes for granted like Bill and Hillary Clinton.
A black man has to have a white mind-set to not address the paramount issue. (Reparation) Lincoln’s paramount issue was to “save the union.” Then what should Obama’s paramount issue be, to reject reparation?
If you believe that, you have a white-mind set too. If you recall, it was the African kings who sold our foreparents into slavery, now you have a Blackman born of African descent (White Mother from Kansas and African father from Kenya) whose foreparents did not come to America by way of the slave trade. He is another African who wants to deny descendants of slave’s reparations, if he is elected President. Think over it.
