like i said it makes me sad....
but if we in america waited for someone to get us up outta slavery
we would still be in bonds....we had to make motions to free ourselves from the
raping, hanging, castration, etc....
we have a long way to go but now we are doing t he best out of all the black people in the world when before we were down at the bottom...
it's a shame that now that we have no natural enemies as human beings....we have become our own worst enemies....and this fact may spell our overall doom oneday....time will tell

one love

What you say looks nice on a screen,
but what is the history to support your statement?

you will actually state here in 2009 that it was the slave revolts and the slave revolts alone that ended slavery in this nation?
No disrespect brother but that was what I was refering to regarding about facts and fantasies.

u r an intelligent brother....
to understand the meaning in my words the rigidness
of your thinking must be flexible enough to think outside of the box...

i'll give u a hint....
would you keep a pet that bite's ur hand?

one love

brother I stll have no understanding of how you can apply an error, regarding our history here, http://library.thinkquest.org/J0112391/the_fight_to_end_slavery.htm
to be a paradigm, of liberation for the atrocities we as Africans face there?

Like I said I am not sure you understand what real opression and supression looks like

A few words of advice:

When ones does gain social awareness, it all seems and sounds easy and simple...

After awhile, when one's idealized viewpoints get challenged by any number of unexpected reality checks/wake up calls, i. e., as in however much one is inspired by the glorious history of our african ancestors, some of their present day descendants antics ad naseum are confusing and dumbfounding, etc., then you will have to contrast what you chose to believe with what you have found out to be true...

The last movements struggles were to reclaim our right to determine our own fates...

Since that is the given when it comes to any and all ethnic/racial groups:

Now what?

You tell me!

i guess my words are invisible...
like 2 is only divisible by...1-2....1-2

like the beastie boyz said....u gotta fight for ur right to party...

of course the congo situation is different....i try not to state obvious ish....don't have time for it these days....

my distant relatives are going to have to fight for there own freedom....because when someone helps u...u r indebted to them....hence creating a secondary set of chains

look at the middle east...
i've said my peace in this thread and have nary another point to offer....

one love

You tell me!
new strategies new ideologies,

and looking at the situation in logical and dispassionately pragmatic terms
what other path is there for the race but Black nationism and Pan Africanism?

Chuck:

Some will respond....

Others will just react...

Some will continue to believe what they want to believe...

Others appreciate the truth your words etc. reflect and will do what they gotta do to move us and our people forward again...

You can only do so much...

And others consider that a given too...

So keep on keeping on!

and this trips up many a well meaning brother including myself.
its hard to realize that others may not see what you can see. it makes you get frustrated.
you can start hating. that is a test. can you deal with those who are still caught up in the matrix?

Feeling good today fam...just been reading a couple of books. I think Dennis Kimbro's "Daily Motivations for African American Success" is one of the best motivational books on the market. This book has motivation for each day of the year on each page and all of these relate to your own Blackness. No matter what you're experiencing there's something in that book you could draw from. ✊
