Marcus Garvey is a Black man that, like most noble and heroic Black men, is not given enough credit in history for his heroism.
Because of slavery, Blacks think a hero is crazy for defying white power. But they don't realize that Black men have an inalienable right to be men, and proclaim their manhood; just as all other men do.
In fact, if a man does not do this, then he is indeed less than a man. And we know that for 400 years, the Black man has not been a logical man. Instead, he has been violated in a way that has never happened before in history.
Blacktown is dedicated to giving Marcus Garvey his long overdue credit, and exposing those who are guilty of credit being taken away from him.
Marcus Garvey was a man determined to correct the historic wrongs against his race, and give his race the credit they deserved.
During the early 1920s Marcus Garvey proclaimed "Africa for the Africans at home and abroad" and "Up you mighty nation you can accomplish what you will". The 1920s was a time of intense race riots because of white jealousy of Black potential progress.
Marcus Garvey was born in Jamaica in 1887 and was a pure, full blooded African. He was pure blooded because his parents were Maroons. Maroons, just as the name implies, were slaves who were brought from Africa to Jamaica but lead a successful slave revolt. As a result of this gallant slave revolt, they lived in the tropical mountains of Jamaica and fought the white British rather than become slaves for the rest of their lives.
So we see Marcus Garvey was a born fighter!!!!!
Marcus Garvey came to America in 1916 to unite with Booker T. Washington and Dr. George Washington Carver to form a Black empire. But Booker T. Washington was dead when Garvey arrived. But Garvey was determined to continue his vision of liberation for Black people. So he founded the United Negro Improvement Organization which was was intended to do just that: Improve the lives of Negroes.
Marcus Garvey was very successful in all of his goals until he aroused jealously from the Negroes in America who wanted to integrate with Whites. Marcus Garvey's foremost enemy was W.E.B. "Dubious".
W.E.B. "Dubious" (as he should be called) was the number one enemy of Marcus Garvey.
Think about how much farther Blacks would be if this man had not destroyed Garvey.
This mulatto is on record calling Garvey "...a black gorilla..." and lead a campaign against Garvey called "Garvey Must Go".
W.E.B. "Dubious" was an avowed communist, integrationist, mulatto. He founded the integrationist organization NAACP (The National Organization for the Advancement of "Colored" People. NOT BLACK PEOPLE)!!!
The name of this organization shows that "Dubious" was a pure coward and not "pro Black" at all.
In fact, he also opposed Booker T. Washington who was the founder of the Tuskegee Institute!! Dubious was a bourgeoisie elitist who believed the race should be lead by a so-called talented tenth. Hypocritically, this bourgeoisie elitism was in contradiction to his own Communist philosophy!!
W.E.B "Dubious" was a certified house slave negro. (Martin Luther King was also a house slave "no grow"/negro also, who opposed Black men becoming powerful men during the 1960s. Read Martin Luther King's Letter From a Birmingham Jail).
All house negroes realize the danger, damage and disgrace they have been to their race, long after their damage has been done. After opposing Marcus Garvey's "Africa for the Africans" movement, W.E.B. "Dubious", hypocritically, became a so-called Pan Africanist himself, and was buried in Ghana West Africa!
The only thing Black about W.E.B. "Dubious" was the dirt he was buried in!! Martin Luther King was assassinated because his views began to change away from non-violence too. But it was too little, too late.
Nevertheless, Marcus Garvey deserves much more credit than he receives. We can start by showing and displaying the ethnic flag he gave us. And also by understanding the conspiracy of house slaves such as W.E.B. "Dubious" against him.
This debate between the house slave and the runaway slave has gone on since whites started slavery. But the man who thinks like a runaway slave, is the only true free man." BLACKTOWN.NET
