Wellll....

In many ways Brother, I see the same value in many of those "old post" as is in what our "old timers" (Malcolm et. al) have shared. I do not see that some of that necessarily "detracts" as there is likely to be some useful information that may have been missed or others did not see when originally posted.

As we ask of others, we may be willing to do ourselves. It IS Hard work, yet, WHO will do it...if not we:?:

We sift through stuff seeking to separate the sugar from the ish
Sometimes stuff needs to go through the wash a few times..or through the sifter. Mama ALWAYS washed the greens TWICE..as standard practice.
That which you or I or anyone else considers ish or foolishness or "negative" we can chose to keep it movin allowing that other to be where they are...for the moment. Share something somewhere else that gets across your Experiences, Strengths and Plans for dealing with whatever the topic...

Ask questions, Listen to Learn and KEEP IT MOVING
just a suggestion :geek:

In the end...WE KNOW WE GONNA WIN anywho :kiss:
besides..what else can one do specially on the internet where you don't know WHO is really behind the screen of those words:10500:

Now I KNOW, I may not practice this 100% of the time just as no "christian" demonstrates 'Christ like" behaviors according to their beliefs, nor does the muslim uphold the principles in the koran etc...AND...every Black Nationalist does not work in the best interest of the Afreekan community all the time..

no not so much person to person , in the commuity,
were they actualy have to face someone face to face, where there is a serious response and answer, that folks can escape by hiding behind a keyboard, another name and another state, but as I say wilh all the hell the Black community is faceing I never expected to see that kind of behavior on this site since it is the last hope for open Black discussion o the web
since Black Planet selling out, Black Voices dealing with it's own issues and Afrochat vanishing.

Not looking fo perfection only maturity, and dignity

take a look at the post below and you will see what I mean, not one day without wickedness, spitefullness and hatred, who can live like that?
Which post are you referring to?


honestly this post was referring to those who seek to distract from nation building through harboring endless old gripes and grudges, and thus running the Black community under the bus.


As you see these old posts popping back up
with repetitive multiple posts, you can tell who these folks are

Who are "these folks?"

Malcolm X spoke out and focused his negativity against the oligarchy, and Dr King also focused his righteous indignation against global White Supremacy, but regading the community they worked tirelessly day and night to find ways to provide us with the benefits, and joys, we and our families enjoy today.
Now that COINTELPRO had removed Afrocentricity fom every venue of Black media, from theater, movies, dance, literature, television, radio, hip hop, jazz, and pop music, a vaccuun has occured in regads to any apreciation or focus on Black nationalism.
The common phrases Nation Time, and Do forSelf have been replaced by
"N word please!" and "Nuckka" and the B word and the term Ho

Like the Godfather said, how have we come so far? How have we lost focus?
Here in NYC there has been practicaly no violence in the community, no gang wars, and a general sense of peace love and harmony.
The Million Man and Million Woman Marches had something to do with it, the Blackout that forced those who were at each others throats, to look out for each others backs, the election of a chief of staff that looks like us, but all in all a kind of evolving out of the hatred and animosty mentality that builds nothing and only destroys.

One can go from Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and yes even the Black areas of Staten Island anytime day or night without being harassed, stalked, insulted or set upon by crips or bloods, in fact crips and bloods have had a truce here for the past few years and no longer wear colors but gret members by unique (Masonic) hand signs.

But what is going on in the other areas of this Wilderness?
What is going on in the other 49 states were brothers cannot chat in harmony to build the Black community or help members in need without animosty or grudges.?
How have some of our sisters felt a need to focus on fueling flame wars on a daily basis ,
rather then using their goddess energy to heal and nurture a community that is in need pof great repair.

Long before the Bible was even a word in any language there were more then likely a thousand African proverbs, tens of thousands of years old
stateing that,

When you share the Good of your heart , you not only heal yourself but you heal the village and honor the ancestors
but whwn you hide the Good of your heart and entertain only hostilty and disharmony on a daily basis,
then one not only harms oneself, but one does harm to the entire community, and great displeasure, sorrow and anguish to the ancestors.

Look at the economy!

Look at the education system!

Look at what is happening to our youth

Look at what is planned for our elderly if we are not vigilent?

And look at the increase in poverty, homelssness, and joblessness!

At this time do we as a people realy have time to be negative or hold grudges?

What exactly is your ideology?!
I'll be honest. I like black culture forums, so I've signed up for this one, BX, and Lipstick Alley. I won't post too often, only on things that I'm really interested in. Nice to meet you. :)
