    Pan Africanism : Taking Back the Tongue 1: Xhosa

    I would like to seriously see us begin relearning the Mother tongues that were taken from us. Our voices were literally silenced in many ways. I'm going to try to gather as much information as I can and compile it in a series of threads called "Taking Back the Tongue"--each devoted to a...

    Black People : "Change": Your Views on the Current Political Scene"

    I started this thread because I was accused of being "off topic" in another thread. Heaven forbid I don't want to spin the topic off course :rolleyes:. So I'll ask here in a thread specifically devoted for it. It seems that if you question Obama's presidency, you are suffering from the...

    Black People : Understanding Your Own Power: Still Believe You Need to Rely on Others?

    I'm glad that I found these clips because they are textbook examples of what I've stressed about rediscovering and relying on your own (brain) power and labor instead of that of exploitive outsiders to impact your reality.

    Black People : Are we REALLY listening to Fuller and Welsing?

    Black People : Is the Rastafarian Movement Under Racial Siege?
