    Peace and Blessings Family,

    What information do we have, that has not come from white people?

    We spend so much time arguing with each other, and i'm thinking, it's almost all based on what white folk told us.

    For example ... even the Pert Em Heru / Kemetian Texts is based (to some degree) on what E.A. Wallis Budge said ... a white man.

    If we're not fighting about what white folk have told us, or information they granted us access to ... we're fighting each other over some "he said she said" ish.

    They aren't fighting over what we say. In fact, they built into their system, justice, steps we can go through ... oftentimes leaving us tired, broke, and incarcerated.

    But we will fight each other, over what another man / woman has told us. We aint witness nuth'n, but we ready to fight each other. We have no hard evidence to put on the table, but we'll expend inordinate amounts of time, attempting to prove each other wrong.

    It's krazee Family. It makes no sense to me. Not when we all KNOW the injustices we face as a people, at the hand of others. Yeah, everybody, every group of people, have their issues ... but none have the issues we do ... for we have to bear the weight of their burden upon us, as well as our own.

    It seems to me we would mitigate our losses. Begin to realize, that we need each other, and should learn to lean on, stand up for, and fight for, each other. We can at least attempt to level the playing field, bringing our united strength to fight those who think we will forever carry their burden and ours.

    But rather than us doing that ... we fight over information they gave us!

    Anyway ... i think i'm rambling ... :look:

    All of this makes me wonder, what or who ... Black ... is providing us "straight from the source" information? And what is that information?

    Help me please, if you can.

    Thanks.

    :heart:

    Destee

    yes

    we possess internal information but we are programmed not to see it.

    if someone to asks what information do we have that has not come from white people, the whole point is who's information?

    we spend time arguing over words, not even our "words" and you hit it right on the head. the fight is against the "information" but we hold on so tight and i'm yet understand

    any "information" that is present nowadays is processed and tainted, and the said thing is they have tainted everything

    do we "need" information on how to breathe, eat and sleep?

    use the white mans language
    his gas
    his electric
    his cable and phone
    utilities

    his food,
    his media
    his paper printed with dead white presidents used as forms of exchange
    his books
    his information

    or his transportation systems

    or his gasoline.
