    ( I can only speak from my own experience with such a phenomenon, I do not speak for all of the young people of black african descent all over the world, but only bring up a topic that has been on my mind for a while.)

    I had a convo the other day on civil rights and some of the participants of such. The people speaking were talking about Malcolm X especially, one claimed that Malcom was being deified by the youth of today and should not have beenand that malcolm was unsuccesful in what he wanted for us as people (i personally have not met one person who deified malcom)the other(me) was just calling him a fool for trying to compare Malcolm to any other civil rights leaders of that time since they were all different points on different arrows that all had one common target.I repeatedly asked him what was he looking for pertaining to Malcolm's greatness in a sense to challenge his own judgement and bias. He pointed out how Malcolm never led marchs,I told him that marchs make you look dependent in a sense to say even though it is a form of demonstrating peacefull disagreement.

    All of the things said led me to a question. Why is there constant argument over the "real leaders" and the "fake leaders" of today and yesterday?
    It is important to know who is on your side and who is not, but why is it that the so-called leaders of today have not met much support? Have they distanced themselves from my generation, or is my generation to tied up by music and entertainment to even notice their existence in a system of capitalist bias and greed?We are the future, but how can we (including my generation) guide our people and the rest of the world toward positivity if we keep arguing over who was the best or better at this and that in the past instead of taking their example and formulating a concept of our own that benefits us as a whole?

    I want to know what the elders on here think.:thinking: :thinking:

    guess, maybe, i'm getting to the age of qualification? <grin>

    we spend entirely too much time "looking for leaders" and "waiting" to "follow them" ... and all the arguing is even more of a waste!!

    To the Youth of our Nations:
    YOU Are The LEADERS of Our Tomorrows!! BE IT!!​

    Hotep Yung Oba I-KHAN.....

    Rule #2 of (krakka) war,

    is to create dissention within the ranks of your enemy, no matter what it takes.

    I know, because they did it within the ranks of the Black Panther Party for Self Defense, of the 1960's,

    the Nation of Islam also nation-wide in the 60's, (I mention these, only because They're more easily identifiable,)

    However, there were MANY Black Nationalist Organization's (and Others) that arose and were VERY active during the 60's, Whom ALSO felt the betrayal sting of euro-ideological militant practices....even from some of our "OWN."( MANY of OUR Brother's AND Sisters DIED for what THEY believed in AND in relative obscurity, never having received NO "glory" at all. ***)

    It's just a SHAME that too many of OUR People, truly believe that they are
    "important" enough to be selected by krakka to impart change in the future of america, that they would even sell their own Brothers for a putrid euro-favor in ANY regard.

    YOU see yung Oba,

    These "practices" are yet prevalent and of full effectiveness TODAY.
    They haven'nt changed, cause "he" has'nt changed, and NO amount of intellectual smoke-and/or-mirrors, will change this indisputable fact.

    MALCOLM Unsuccessful? No.........if anything, AGAIN, MALCOLM was proven RIGHT. Essentially, MALCOLM warned that if WE as a People (Black People,)
    don't grab-hold of OUR MAN-HOOD NOW.....RIGHT NOW, WE would lose IT, OUR WOMAN AND OUR CHILDREN to just the kind of PUTRID electronic propaganda and lifestyle

    that krakka and his dementia has allowed this society to face RIGHT NOW. "Soft" pornography even in t.v. commercials that OUR 6yr olds are even exposed to...like it or not. (one example.)


    For commercials about "e-d," monthy feminine products and Viagra, Brothers like MALCOM were KILLED. Is this a "SANE" trade-off?


    Just remember something YUNG Oba, when YOU Lead, and YOU begin to Lead.......

    *****LEADERS NEVER LEAD FOR "GLORY,"
    LEADERS LEAD FOR RESULTS.

    ROARIN.......
