The Obama Kwanzaa Series Day 5 of 7 2008

Call Habari Gani

5. NIA (Purpose) [NEE-ah]
To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.

Today there are more than two billion people in the global Black community. To understand this ethnic group and its purpose we must go back, way back, back to the beginning of human kind in history. Our scientists tell us that the oldest people known to exist on the planet are found in Africa. Kemetoligist s, some archaeologist and our cosmological leaders tell us that Classical African Civilization, Kemet, (Ancient Egypt) was among the first if not the first civilizations in recorded history.

Black Africans Built and Ruled Ancient Kemet (Egypt)

Speaking of “building”, it is in Kemet that we find the only one of the original Seven Wonders of the World still standing the African Pyramids. The holiday season in America is full of Cultural Poisoning on TV where Hollywood misrepresents the ethnicity of the people of Classical African Civilization in Kemet and Canaan. We must be sure to give our children and those of good will the antidote reminding them of NIA of the great monuments our ancestors erected in their communities as tools that still instruct our purpose to this day.

The Obama Vocation “Community Organizer”/ builder is an honorable profession, the humanist that do not just talk good but do good everyday for the least among us. I think his track record qualifies him on this principle of NIA.

But let us now turn to his and our future as Africans in America. Kemet had Golden ages and Intermediate periods (times of Chaos). So it is the case in all civilizations including here in America. Obama will take office in a time of American Chaos. In this Darkness there is an opportunity for us to join with him and all Americans to build democratic physical and intellectual monuments that will shine in history like the African Pyramids. Yes, NIA can bring us to a new American Golden Age.

It is my judgment that Obama is a man of purpose.
