    It has been suggested that NEELY FULLER's ideologies of how to counter white supremacy should be implemented

    Personally, I am familiar with FULLER's works, and find them overall to be counterproductive, as well as counterintuitive.

    For instance, in an essay regarding Blair Hair, FULLER states:

    http://www.endarkenment.com/hair/essays/nfj.htm

    On the Subject of
    HAIR!!!!...
    Do not "worship" hair.

    Don't spend great time and/or effort:

    combing it
    twisting it
    patting it
    brushing it
    pulling it
    greasing it
    oiling it
    shaping it
    straightening it [contributed by a female Victim of Racism]
    processing it [contributed by a female Victim of Racism]
    or looking at it.
    ..
    Don't spend so much time/effort
    wondering about whether your hair is

    "right"
    or "wrong"
    or "good"
    or "bad".
    ..
    Don't worry about the hair:

    on your head
    on your chin
    on your face
    over your eyelids, etc.
    Show more concern about
    the lack of constructive knowledge
    inside your head.

    ..
    Reason/Explanation:

    "Manhood", "womanhood", the elimination of Racism, nor the establishment of justice is not a matter of giving great time and attention to hair.


    While the notion of focusing on the internal aspect of development is appreciated, it is utterly foolish, to advise someone not to practice proper hygene, of which hair care comprises a significant part thereof.

    Further, hair serves rather significant functions, both on the physiological, as well as spiritual levels. Nothing in FULLER's essay accounts for this, and thus we are forced conclude that he is not knowledgeable of this fact.

    PEACE

    You are so disrespectful. You have the nerve to disparage and denigrate our Beloved Elder, Mr. Neely Fuller, Jr. who has probably lived twice as many years as you, if not more, and has spent a great portion of his life dedicated to creating a concept that could possibly replace the system of racism / white supremacy with a system of justice.

    You start a thread to point out how he is counterproductive and counterintuitive ... (talk about the pot call'n the kettle Black) ... while simultaneously talking in another thread of becoming wise. You complain of others posting what you consider negative opinion, regarding the author and concept of the Metu Neter, yet here you are doing the very same thing to another Brother.

    It is very difficult for one who already knows everything, to become wise.

    I told you that i think highly of this Elder, but even if i didn't, i would not take part in tearing down another Sister or Brother, and i will not take part in this. You have absolutely no concepts, no books, no plan, to free us, yet you want to throw stones at those who do.

    Pitiful.

    No one ever suggested that you should replace your system with his.

    Only from what I heard in the chat room, I like Neely Fuller, he stops blaming the white man for everything.

    Respecting the "Elders"*

    Hotep

    We today are ware we are because of the contrabutions of our Elders and soon to be Elders weather we agree with every thing they say and do or not. We have a terible habit of being soo critical of each other as soon as we can find some thing that is disagreed with or better yet...mis-understood. Those who have not lived long enough...have not seen enough will mistakenly think they know more than they actually do and are ready to reject every thing a Elder says because one does not understand some points of view.

    Proverb: "Check out all things and hold on to what is Good".

    Read, Learn and Listen to everything...for only then will we have the total amount of Bricks to builld our structure of self determination. We should never think we know more than those who are wiser than ourself...because they can see things that we have not yet learned to recognise through "Experience". Doctor Neely Fuller is absolutely correct from his point of view and his "Capinsatory Code Book" is a blessing to all of us...no matter what level of understanding we are at...if we use it. Every human society has its codes and opperate according to those codes. What codes do we opporate through or under? Why are we soo quick to reject our brothers and sisters who are making efforts to improve our conditions because they are speaking a different language than what we think we are use to hearing...but in reality we are all in the absolute same "Boat" no matter what...we are one so-called African People in need of Liberation and it will take all of us...espishly our learned and commited "Elders" who have earned our "Respect" and "Honor" for their efforts to aid our collective struggle.

    what about me?

    i'm one of the older people around here.
    i have seen many things that others have not and will never see because they are now gone.
    yet most of the things i say are disputed and ignored as though i am simple.
    people who have not a fraction of my experience tell me i am all wrong.

    how does fuller reach such exalted status and i do not?
    does the writing of a book somehow confer authority?
    should i get a publisher?

    in fact, many plans written out in books are dead wrong.

    you have a real live elder who is with you daily.
    perhaps you could stop treating him like the village idiot.
