    Ohhh Wow, Sister Destee!

    I've read so many great suggestions within the threads here. One of my favorite ones is to reevaluate the things we were taught and learned, against the things we actually see/know is true. Then apply the truth to our individual life accordingly. Once we can recognize truth again for all its worth, I envision a variety of ideas/actions spilling out for overcoming White Supremacy. By individually doing this, we can arouse massive unity amongst our people, one person at a time. In other words, I think unity is the key.

    The first major step is in recognizing the very existence of the concept of white supremacy. This would put one on the road to deprogramming. You'd be surprised at how many Black people continue to be oblivious to its existence as a philosophy & practice that shapes their attitudes and behavior.

    Marimba Ani, author of "Yurugu" gave a lecture entitled "Cleansing Ourselves of European Concepts." It is available for sale on www.blackconsciousness.com. Studying this lecture should be the first stop on the road to deprogramming. Also, see Anthony Browder's "Survival Strategies for Africans in America: Thirteen Steps to Freedom" and his Nile Valley Contributions to Civilization."

    The other thing that is of paramount importance is the recognition of the uses of culture as both offensive and defensive weaponry that can be used to shape peoples' attitudes and behavior either to their benefit or to the benefit of their enemies and oppressors. Examples of culture include movies ("Hustle & Flow"), music (hip-hop, rap, etc), television programs, etc. An example of the use of culture as defensive weaponry is when people abandon the religion and life ways of the caucrazy (both european and A-rab) and adopt that of the ancestors (Ancestral Ways).

    EVERYTHING has to be put on the table for examination, including closely held religious beliefs. If we're not willing to do that, we may as well stop talking about liberation and resign ourselves to assimilation and annihilation.

    IN additon to the above, there are several thrones that Black people need to remove white people from in our collective heads:

    The throne of Divinity.
    The throne of Beauty
    The throne of Intelligence &
    The throne of Purity

    Hey Sam:book:
    What is meant by the throne of purity and divinity?
    Can you explain this to me?

    How do we overcome "Anything"?

    Hotep

    Over and over and over and over agin...and we refuse to take heed thinking there is a "Short-Cut" or "Easyer-Way" that we can make out of what we already don't have. Some of us think we can re-invent the wheel...why??
    There is catagoricly and absolutely no way out of this level of "Mental-Slavery" that we are in and find ourself "Worshiping" in "Ignorance" except to "First" give it all back to the System of White Superimacy ware it all came from.
    Take the time and commit yourself (Re-Educate) to "learning all there is to know" about your African ancestors...self. Study in "Black Books" by Black Authors that can be found in any Good Black Book Store...travil to the places in Africa that will help "Awaken" your African mind. Ask questions...lots of questions and know that sometime it may take days, months, years or decades to truely know the answer to some things...we must be patient...depending on you and your sincerity and reasons for what you are trying to find out about yourself and your Ancestors. If you think that white people are telling the truth about any thing...you will find out maybe 5, 10 or longer years from now that you have just wasted your time and are right back ware you started...in Slavery. Study Dr. Diop, Dr. Van Sertima, Dr. Niam Akbar, Dr. Yosef B. Jachanan, Dr. Ray Hagins, Dr. E.M. James, Dr. Francis C. Wilsing, Professor Walter Williams and meny, meny, meny others who are of the most high level of scolorship in the world on the subject of "You". Give back all of the white mans Religions...none of them will "Liberate" you...you don't need any Religion...you need what your ancestors (what you were born with and in) had from the begining of time and that is to Grow yourself in your own G-d given birth right...Spirituality.........the Natural Order of Things. If you think you can bring white folks (in your thinking) with you...then you are wasting your life and time...it is not ment that they come along with you to your Salvation in African Liberation from the System of White Superimacy and Spiritual Death.........People Know Thy Self!!

    Note: We over come the system of white superimacy the same way we over come any thing that is a catistropic "Illnes" or Dis-Ease...we find the thing that makes us sick and remove it absolutely from our (thinking) lives. Take off the symbol of Death (Cross) from around our necks (and out of your mind) and most of all remove the white mans Religions from our African (Mind) Thinking for Ever.........We Africans will overcome the System of White Superimacy...Step by Step by Step.........AMUN*

    Dispose of it.

    If I may offer a 'perspective".

    The first thing radical surgery suggests is
    the 'violation' of virgin flesh.

    But ultimately, without certain violations of
    focused intent to OUR flesh, the entire body
    will die.

    Consider the 'condition' of amerikkkan socio-
    political AND economic infrastructure without
    prejudice....#1st, how was it "built?"

    Well, if through crime, will history overlook it's
    ends to justify it's means? Just what will the Children
    of future generations contemplate in regards to

    any 'required' reading of twenty-first century
    amerikkkan infrastructure...unbiased? Do WE
    suspend any statutes of limitations on Murders? Ever?

    More specifically, to answer the question of 'supremacy,'
    WE won't see the results in OUR Lifetime, however,
    do WE love OUR Children enough to make a sober determination

    and commitment to the construction of an irrefutable
    New Black Nation? This IS the only way to continue
    (for OUR People,) to survive. WE must Dispose of

    euro-ideology in ALL it's custom and form, thus the
    'radical' surgery. This is not only possible...but imperative.
    And as soon as WE engage the "cure' for ostrich syndrome,

    (because WE DO suffer from an accute case,) the sooner
    WE can begin the new infastructure of Black Confidence.


    The amerikkkan infastructure has imploded and is smoldering
    with a completely rancid stench raising itself to the highest
    Thrones of even the most docile of Afrikan Kings and for this
    reason alone, it should be buried.

    But Whom, will agree with ME and build the New Nation?

    WE can't even see that white 'supremacy' is outta style,
    and should be given over to the land-fill.

    The only way WE can survive, is to dispose of what has
    by violence become the "only game in town," amerikkka---
    a life-style some of OUR OWN have even come to love as

    Their Own....what a shame.

    Mr. Neely Fuller, Jr. says ...

    One step toward overcoming white supremacy ... is for us to say or do THE VERY BEST THING, out of the thousands of things one can say or do ... choose only the very best one.

    Thanks everyone for sharing your thoughts thus far, please keep 'em come'n.

    :heart:

    Although I've written Purity here and elsewhere, the word I was actually trying to recall is "Morality."

    As far as the throne of divinity is concerned, for several hundred years Black people have had the picture of a white Jesus in their homes and churches that they prayed to. The argument then goes that since Jesus is God, AND Jesus is white, then it stands to reason that God is white. Alternatively (for those who don't believe that Jesus and God are one and the same), since Jesus is the son of God, and Jesus is white, then God his father HAS to be white. Based on that, the unspoken assumption is that white people are God's representatives on earth.
