*New Black Nationalists believe Black people within the borders of America's settler state constitute a historically evolved nation. 

*The process of Black subject and national formation occurred on a common geographical space in the Black Belt South in which Black people were the majority population. 

*Black slaves and their descendants originated from a common geographical region in West Africa, and over time began speaking a common language and forging a common culture.   

*New Black Nationalists believe the central and historic task of our movement is to organize for the creation of an independent Black nation-state on the continental landmass of America's settler state.

*New Black Nationalists support the Black majorities' right to decide what form(s) of self-determination best serve the interests of Black people. In addition to the option of creating a national homeland in the states of  Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia, Mississippi and South Carolina, exercising the right of self-determination may also include Black autonomous regions of a larger multi-racial state, independent Black city-states, and the Darker Nation's voluntary incorporation into a new non-capitalist multi-racial state. 

*New Black Nationalists do not regard our efforts to create a Black nation-state as a patriarchal or male subject centered project in which Black women and LGBTQ communities are considered "Others." 

*New Black Nationalists support the right of self-determination of all oppressed people internationally, including those nations and ethnic groups waging "people's wars" to liberate themselves from foreign domination.

* New Black Nationalists support the creation of an independent homeland for Latinx, and all indigenous people living with the boundaries of American Empire. We support negotiated forms of autonomy for Asian-Americans.  

*New Black Nationalists believe that Black people out of multiple African ethnicities created a distinct and organic national culture that has evolved over hundreds of years on the North American continent. 

*New Black Nationalists are not Pan-Africanists, Afrocentrists, Afropessimists, or Black Atlanticists ideologically speaking. Our strain of Black Nationalism is as an integral part of the African Diaspora. We recognize the African Diaspora movement as an important component and ally of our struggle to create an independent Black nation-state.     

*New Black Nationalists believe that a gender-based cultural shift has occurred within the Darker Nation in which Black attitudes regarding sex, sexuality, gender tolerance, acceptance of LGBTQ communities, abortion, same-sex marriage and trans-sexual issues have become more tolerant and accepting. Combined with the impact Black Feminists and black women have had on our literature, criticism, intellectual movements and performing arts from AfroPunk to Afrofuturism, the culture of the Black nation has been substantially altered.   

*New Black Nationalists support the full and unfettered participation of women in the Black Liberation Movement, especially in leadership positions. We are anti-sexist and oppose "gendered roles" for women. We condemn the epidemic of violence against women and teenage females. 

*New Black Nationalists support the full involvement of LGTBQ persons at all levels within the Black Liberation Movement. We oppose all forms of discrimination and violence directed at this community.  

*New Black Nationalists condemn racist ideology in all its manifestations.  

*New Black Nationalists place the collective interest of the Darker Nation above the interest of the individual. As such, we dissent against the bedrock premise of the Western philosophical and value system which places the rights and interests of the individual above all. ​

*New Black Nationalists believe American Empire (the U.S.-led Global North imperialist bloc) has entered a period of accelerating decline that could lead to an existential crisis and the collapse of the U.S. government. Under these circumstances, the possibility of creating a Black homeland becomes a live option as early as the 2020's.
