    Can you envision a true black nation
    Where every building, park, and business is solely a black creation?
    It is achievable, because we have the skills necessary to reach it,
    Before our fall from grace, different nations visited Nubia & Egypt.
    Where they learned the sciences, mathematics, & religion.
    Look, black people in Amerikkka anually earn close to 190 billion.
    That's more money than many smaller nations combined.
    With approximately 25 million Amerikkkanized Afrikans in this country alone, I hear the call of "Nation Time".

    We've got doctors that can heal our sick,
    Educators who can teach our kids,
    Architects & engineers who can create beautiful buildings.
    A nation of our own is a dream worth fulfilling.
    We could be a nation conducting business with people from different lands.
    No longer would there be racism & exploitation of the black man.
    With our knowledge & resolurces pooled together, the stars would be the limit.
    We could regain the respect of the world & all of the superpowers in it.
    All it takes is imagination, perseverance, & determination.
    Together, we could create our own imagined & determined nation.

    It is refreshing to see someone that is AWAKE. We spend more than 400 billion a year. That should be enough to at least BEGIN to build the foundation of a powerful financial base, if not nation on these soils. But, all brothers and sisters need to think like you. Keep spitting the fire.

    Peace. your brother blak

    Once again I must thank you all for appreciating.

    If we don't come together, we will definitely fall apart.

    Peace.

    I was recently reading some speeches of the honorable Marcus Garvey, & this piece stayed on my mind, so I wanted 2 bring this back real quick.

    4 those who don't know of him, brother Marcus spoke about displaced Afrikans going back 2 the Motherland & colonizing it 4 our Nation. He was the man who came up with the idea of the Red, Black, & Green as our nation's flag back in 1920. He also sent a few delegates 2 Liberia via The Black Star Line 2 begin settling, along with many other Afrikans born in AmeriKKKa, but was eventually shafted by those who don't want us here but don't want us 2 leave because they'd have noone 2 discriminate against. Just a quick lesson.
