    I cannot recall which scholar related this info to the Brooklyn community at the UAM meeting back in the early 90s, whether Ishakamusa Barashango, Naiim Akbar or Molefi Asante but it was stated that,

    the Traditional Chief in precolonial Africa


    [​IMG]

    never spoke directly to his subjects

    On the first of each lunar cycle he would have all of the adults line up and present thier greivances or issues

    and his acumen as a leader,
    was his ability to solve those issues and greivances within a reasonable amount of time


    Here is a simple test that anyone of African descent living in a Black neighborhood can take;

    take an average piece of 8x11 paper, fold it in half.

    On one side list all of the Black leaders one is aware of.

    Then on the other side of the paper,
    list the 12 major problems
    one sees sisters and brothers faceing in the community, every day

    then go down the list
    one by one and indicate how each leader has or has not
    worked to ameliorate those problems within the past 3 years, 5 years, or 10 years,
    or
    have inspired the community,
    to actively and collectively solve those problems themselves

    you know when i thought about it in my head right off the top
    there was no surprise at all the number was (0) none , not a one .
    that right there also tells me we are alone, on our own, and if we as a people
    don't work together to a better collective bargin and use what we have
    to generate more our days will become slim/short and doom !

    The Great thing about the Honorable Elijah Muhammed was he
    Lead by example, and the entire Black community could see and enjoy physically the pride and dignity the NOI brought to the community, from families being restored, folks gotten off of drugs without chemicals, and those with advanced skills amd degrees that caused fear in the "men with the grey flannel suits",
    and where not able to find jobs , where able to better yet; establish prosperous and thriving businesses.

    Grocery stores,
    hardware stores,
    stationary stores,

    in many parts of America are taken up by chains and conglomerates but in every major city , and within the Black commuities there,

    there were well designed, stores with knowledgable and courteous brothers and sisters providing for the community, at reasonable prices,
    and with the heartfelt commitment of a close relative!

    dry claeners,
    funeral parlors,
    milinery,
    bakeries,
    diners and 3 Star restaurants

    provided to the community by the Nation of Islam from 1959 to the Messenger's passing


    Malcolm and King became a serious threat when they stopped makeing speeches against each other and unified to sit down and silently brainstorm together,

    scientific methodologies of Black collective economic self sufficiency

    which would have made our money do a 360 within our communities.
