Building Revolutionary Organizations with Numbers Consciousness

“America is derived from the name Amaruca, which is Quiche meaning “plumed serpent” in the native language of the Incas and was adopted to give a geographical location to North and South America.”

Let me start with Spain before it invaded the Islands and Americas

In 711, the Arabs and the Berbers invaded Iberia (Spain) through North Africa. For nearly eight centuries under her Mohammedan rulers Spain set for all of Europe a shinning example of a civilized and enlightened state. Art, literature, and science prospered as they then prospered nowhere else in Europe. Students flocked from France and Germany and England to drink from the fountains of learning which flowed only in the cities of the Moors: “Moors were the mixed, created by the Arabs and Berbers.”

“The surgeons and doctors of Andalusia were in the van of science; womyn were encouraged to devote themselves to serious study, and a lady doctor was not unknown among the people of Cordova. Mathematics, astronomy, and botany, history, philosophy, and jurisprudence, were to be mastered in Spain and in Spain alone.” The Secret Teachings of All Ages, Manly P. Hall

In the Americas before the Spaniards arrived, there were tribes of Indigenous people living in Kingdoms established by three major Empires: Aztecs, Mayas, and Incas.

Within these Kingdoms many tribes of Indigenous people lived, some in peace and others in bitter dispute. Overall there was an economy established that exported and imported goods from these tribes to those across the Americas. These facts are visible due to archaeological findings in the Americas.

There was even a route that was used for such purposes within the mountains of South America up throughout North America. There were magnificent structures built; immaculately and mathematically well that on their civilized habitat, they were most advanced with the least complications and disease compared to other parts of the world in those days (1492).

These three kingdoms are comparable due to their location in the Americas. They represent the founding, just as black people represent the founding of Africa. We should have reason enough to unite just as the black people do.

Some claim that Brown and Proud cry, but really fail to realize that it is their own pride that divides the Kingdom of freedom we seek to establish and build upon.

That pride is insignificant when you commit social crimes against your own people—the same people you must protect and unite with: the oppressed masses!

When the Spaniards arrived, the Indigenous people were colonized and a new breed emerged out of this mixture of Spanish, Indian, and African, who contributed to the establishment of Nations, respectfully.

This colonization divided us even thinner such as Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, etc. Which is in reality an illusion because we are all the same people. Just like Mexicans in California are the same as the Mexicans in Texas, but divided it would be Californians and Texans. This “divide and conquer” is an old trick in the books of Imperialism, which we must seek out and destroy.

The Spanish people have a beautiful culture and a deep history, that when they mixed with Indigenous people of America, created a new enlightened peoples (Latinos) for the world to see and learn from.

These ancestors of ours are the reason for our existence. For better or worse, they must help us battle the forces that seek to deny…
This Brown Consciousness is the gift of flavours which makes the future leaders, and only in that way can one truly exist in the light of things.

With this mixture began a new migration to North America and has not stopped, settling in the Southwest (Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, etc.) and continues on into today’s gateways through North America and the World.

When these colonized settlements rebelled against Spain, it was due to the lack of communication and weapons, and Spain’s ignorant decision not to recognize the Mestizo people (Latino). For the Spaniards were already established 15 years before any Spanish females arrived which led to some, most, Spaniards taking Indigenous womyn as their wives and started the process, one that Spain did not want to recognize. These actions created a rebellion!

Puerto Rico has been colonized by the United States since 1898. They invaded the Island and have stayed their oppressing the people “de La Isla Del Encanto.” Since 1846-1848 the North American invasion, as it is known in Mexico, took over half of Mexico from the Mexican people and have stayed there since. The North American Indians have also been invaded and colonized since the first settlers in the 13 colonies. The African Americans have also been oppressed by the same system. To put this in proper perspective, Mexican, Puerto Rican, North American Indians, and African Americans all have a common interest and a common enemy: the liberation of all lands and the destruction of capitalist-imperialism!

There are semi-differences between Mexican and Puerto Rican people, but the similarities are much deeper and stronger for we both share the same blood (Spanish and Indigenous with a sprinkle of African love). For those Mexicans who can’t digest what I’ve just stated, remember Vincente Guerrero who was mulatto (Spanish/African) and was a Founding Father of Mexico. He helped in the liberation of the African slaves that were victimized in Mexico and helped liberate the Mexican people to a State of Independence.

To all Internationalists, Che Guevara, Colita-Lebron, Albizu Campos, Emiliano Zapata, The Brown Beret, Young Lords, Independistas, Macheteros, AIM, Zapatistas, ALKQN, and all those not mentioned, the Life, Energy and Strength of your past sacrifices reminds us that the struggle is a continuous cycle: 500 years and it still ain’t stopped. Our people have fought against colonialism, hunger and ignorance and for human dignity. Let us not keep their names in vain. Let us carry their names into our deaths.
