When a black man in America who personifies black excellence, cultural integrity, and self-sufficiency inspires the world with his glory, he is often met with a mysterious demise.
The primary purpose of this article will not be to explain the details about his murder or his life. There are many other reliable sources for information like that. Honestly, I’m disappointed to admit that I’ve learned more about Nipsey Hussle since his passing then I did when he was alive. I’ve heard of him before, but I didn’t understand his vision or what kind of man he was until after he died. Once I began to see the nature of this mighty man, it became obvious his death represents more then “another slain artist” or “another black man murdered”. His death is symbolic of the historical murder of the black alpha male in America.
According to official reports Ermias Joseph Asghedom aka “Nipsey Hussle” was murdered on March 31, 2019 in front of a clothing store he owned in the Crenshaw Boulevard and Slauson Ave area of Los Angeles, California. It’s been almost a year since that day and the world is still mourning the loss of Nipsey.
In order to understand the bigger picture, we must rewind to when “America was great again” as the President frequently mentions. Since the beginning of the subjugation of indigenous peoples in America and The Atlantic Slave Trade, the biggest threat to the system of white supremacy has been the alpha black male.
This is not to say that strong black women aren’t equally as effective in threatening the system. I believe that the physical appearance, intimidating nature and overall strength of the male makes him more effective in threatening the system. The strong black male is feared because of his ability to resist domination, to inspire hope and courage to all his people with eyes to see and ears to hear, and to genetically dominate as a melanated man.
In slavery times, white plantation owners would make it almost a religious practice to find the alpha male of a particular black community and either murder him or humiliate and disgrace him in front of his family and friends. This was to ensure that the rest of the community would remain in perpetual fear of the slave master, now that their symbol of hope and strength has been demolished.
The black alpha male is a symbol of strength and courage. It is no wonder that other black alpha males are also murdered, mysteriously die or lose all momentum at the height of their effectiveness. Nipsey was definitely an alpha male because he was self-sufficient, stood firmly in his beliefs, remained true to himself, provided and protected family and friends.
Look at the hundreds of thousands if not millions of alpha black males that usually end up in jail or dead for defying the system and standing firm like a true warrior until death. Some people may say you can not compare a Hip Hop artists with leaders of black social movements, which may or may not be true. Nonetheless, the point I’m trying to make is ANY black alpha male (regardless of political vision, religion, ideology, education, etc.) is a major threat to the system of white supremacy which aims to dominate all non-white peoples of the known universe.
The white supremacist elite do not want too many warriors or alpha males in the black community. They inspire black men and women to do better, to be better, to be fearless, to be courageous, to be defiant and to succeed by any means necessary.
If this type of energy was permitted to run rampant in the black community then the system of white supremacy would collapse instantly. Black people would no longer go along to get along, they would stand ten toes down just like the warriors or alpha males did that inspired them.
Nipsey Hussle was a black man who carried his head high, lifted his people higher, resisted the racist system designed to subdue his mind and body, created millions of dollars from poverty conditions, and represented for his community until his very last breath.
If there were more men like Nipsey Hussle then perhaps the state of Black America would be different. Perhaps we could do more for ourselves with the wealth we’ve created. Perhaps our women would respect us more if we carried ourselves like a black king, instead of a ‘plantation negro’. Perhaps the police would be less likely to murder black men because they would fear the consequences. Perhaps we would truly understand what it means to be a black man thriving, not just surviving in a world designed to kill us.
The death of Nipsey Hussle is no accident. The man who killed him is only a pawn for the real playmakers. America has always resented and despised the alpha black male, especially the successful ones. That’s why every black male who develops into an alpha black male, is taken from us in one way or another. Nothing has changed from the 1600’s to 2019. Don’t let this deter anyone from being a warrior or an alpha male. A coward dies a thousand deaths, a soldier dies but one.
It is in fact better to die on your feet, then to live on your knees. Remember the men and women that show us how to prosper, by any means necessary in a world controlled by the racist elite. Remember the men and women who showed us how to conquer fear, poverty, and defeat. Remember the men and women who showed us how to live forever…RIP Nipsey.
