In this episode of Necessary Blackness Podcast, we talk about White South Africans relinquishing the land to its rightful owners without any compensation and why an important move such as this signifies the dawn of a new day in terms of freedom for Black Africans.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said, “it’s our enemies desire to keep pour eyes in the sky and to control the land under our feet”.
In the 2nd half of the podcast, we speak about White Nationalist teacher Tiana Dalichov and how she teaches racism and white supremacy to her students and how she went undetected until her podcast was discovered.
My guest this week is Shannon, who just returned from South Africa.
