Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

White Supremacy and it's insidious by-product: Black & Indigenous Domestic Violence



Domestic Violence is a serious issue in America, especially among Black people.  Many people speculate as to the causes.  Some say; there is not father in the home, it's hereditary or cultural, and others say it’s learned.  None want to go to the root of the problem and point out the elephant in the room.
What is the elephant in the room of Domestic Violence when it is related to Blacks in America, Native Americans in America, Blacks in South Africa, and Aborigines in Australia? Racism aka White Supremacy.
You might be thinking, this is another hate whitey rant, but you would be wrong.  When you study domestic violence where Blacks and Indigenous peoples are under white subjection you will find a high level of domestic violence.  This is not to excuse or deflect personal responsibility, however when you understand the cause you can better find the cure.
Look at the articles below.  Notice what they all have in common, indigenous people living under white rule, white occupation, and white supremacy.
A woman is killed by an intimate partner every eight hours in South Africa, a probable underestimate because no perpetrator is identified in 20 percent of killings, according to a study published in August and co-authored by Professor Rachel Jewkes of the South African Medical Research Council. That is double the rate of such murders in the United States, according to the report. The study was based on a sample of deceased females aged 14 years and older at national mortuaries, since police statistics do not separate the killings of women by partners from those by strangers.

Canada’s premiers and five aboriginal leaders agreed just last week totry to convene a round table that will shine a spotlight on the tragic issue of murdered and missing aboriginal women, in the absence of a federal inquiry. While aboriginal women make up 2.1 per cent of the population, they account for 16 per cent of female homicides and 11.3 per cent of missing women. And now that the premiers have seized the initiative, Ottawa seems disposed to tag along.

In Australia, Indigenous women are 31 times more likely to become victims of violence, accordingto a 2011 Australian Productivity Commission report
Aboriginal musician and activist Marlene Cummins, known for her involvement in Australia’s Black Panther Movement, says she has experienced it for much of her life.

Domestic violence and sexual assaults are complicated crimes in any setting, but in California Indian Country, the opportunities for confusion, errors and misunderstanding in reporting, prosecuting and counseling are even greater.
Jurisdiction isn’t always clear. Distrust of law enforcement outside the reservation is widespread. Tribal police and courts sometimes lack the authority they need to see that justice is done. Data is not easily exchanged between different law enforcement groups. Many of the crimes are committed in very isolated areas difficult to reach by non-tribal police or sheriff’s deputies.

Indigenous women in the US experience some of the highest rates of sexual assault in the country. According to the US Department of Justice, nearly half of all Native American women have been raped, beaten, or stalked by an intimate partner; one in three will be raped in their lifetime; and on some reservations, women are murdered at a rate 10 times higher than the national average.
While the numbers are staggering, the reality that advocates such as Brunner see in their work and communities exposes the depth of the crisis.

A good question to ask is why do darker populations that live under white rule have higher rates of domestic violence and dysfunctional families period? The answer to that questions becomes painfully apparent, because it serve to maintain the dominate white society. 
To put it in simple terms white society, which is systemically racist, creates Black dysfunctional families to maintain white domination.
Family is the root and foundation of a nation and the treatment of women determine the holistic health of the nation.  The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan teach, A nation can rise no higher than its women.”
The goal of Willie Lynch in The Slave Making processes was to reverse the natural relationship between the Black man and woman by:
...burning and pulling a civilized nigger apart and bullwhipping the other to the point of death, all in her presence. By her being left alone, unprotected, with the MALE IMAGE DESTROYED, the ordeal caused her to move from her psychologically dependent state to a frozen, independent state. In this frozen, psychological state of independence, she will raise her MALE and female offspring in reversed roles. For FEAR of the young male’s life, she will psychologically train him to be MENTALLY WEAK and DEPENDENT, but PHYSICALLY STRONG. Because she has become psychologically independent, she will train her FEMALE offsprings to be psychologically independent. What have you got? You’ve got the nigger WOMAN OUT FRONT AND THE nigger MAN BEHIND AND SCARED. This is a perfect situation of sound sleep and economics

So, a large part of ending domestic violence in Black and Indigenous communities is to recognize the insidious, noxious, and unholy stench of white supremacy and how it works unceasingly to erode and destroy the bonds between man and woman and parents and children.
