    What is the paradox of our reality? Brother Edwards once made an excellent observation as it regards black and white people. He stated that: "Back in the day when our people were at their best in terms of knowledge, civilization and spirituality that we were defeated by a bunch of people who at that time were at their worst." Now that we are at our worst and they are at their best, what chance do we really have?

    Many of us may not have actually given much thought to that question but we need to. For in as much as they are now at their best, their best is only in terms of technology, science and newer methods of dealing death to the earth and the people on it.

    The question now is;...but what of our people? In last nights class I spoke about "the only black people that were wanted in America." How did I find out which black people were wanted in America? Abraham Lincoln stated in a speech to our black leaders in 1862 "which black people that they wanted and why."

    From all indications we have collectively filled his request. Of course this isn't 100% but this is why there is division and conflict among our people. Many of us are still trying to fill the request while some of us are not. So what exactly did President Lincoln say? Read for yourself what he said and then look at our people, our so called leaders, our actions and thought processes and ask yourself one question..."When did the thought process, the actions, the education, the values and the structure of white people become the standard by which we would govern and fashion our own lives by?"

    Surely something is wrong...for we look but do not see....we hear but do not listen....we talk but do not communicate....we react but do not act....we follow but do not lead....we think but do not know how to think....we are the world, while everyone else is themselves....we are humanitarians while no one else is humane....we love any and everybody but who loves us!?

    In fact, in 1862 President Lincoln gave a speech to the black leaders of that time and made it clear that; the only black people that they wanted were those that were what we would call "house negroes". His exact words are as follows:

    There is an unwillingness on the part of our people, harsh as it may be, for you free colored people to remain with us. Now, if you could give a start to white people, you would open a wide door for many to be made free. If we deal with those who are not free at the beginning, and whose intellects are clouded by Slavery, we have very poor materials to start with. If intelligent colored men, such as are before me, would move in this matter, much might be accomplished. It is exceedingly important that we have men at the beginning capable of thinking as white men, and not those who have been systematically oppressed.

    In other words, here was the President letting black leaders know that, as long as they can use our people to advance their people, everything was okay. As long as they can get our people to "think as their people think", everything was okay. As long as "they can get, use and keep those of our people who can FORGET THE SYSTEMIC OPPRESSION THAT THEIR PEOPLE INFLICTED UPON OUR PEOPLE" everything was okay.

    Historically speaking, everyone has their time of dominance, but "all good things must come to an end." I've always been a believer in that, because history backs up this theory.

    Everything said is true BUT.......

    If 90 percent of us globaly realy don't give a **** about Black unity then what?
    There is no collective planning for the financial disaster ahead in this nation.

    We can make all the pretty anylisis we want but until we learn the social engineering to free the minds of millions and reversed the social engineering that has keptt us the Wretched of the Earth in this twitter and blackberry age, then all of this is just rhetoric

    [/QUOTE]


    You have hit the nail on the head! The issue at hand is that there are those of us who are "pro-American" and those who are "pro_African"...and their lies the conflict to our unity. If we indeed understand that the European nations such as America, Europe and others can only prosper as long as the rape of Africa and African peoples continues in terms of the labor and resources that are extracted from there for the comfort of those nations which we equally enjoy because we are in those nations, then we already have a "conflict of interest going on" within our own people in terms of "America and Africa". This is the dividing line of our unity as Black People.

    One obviously can not be "pro- America" and "pro-African" at the same time...even though many of us try to fake this game. In the mean time there is every effort to keep us divided and ignorant of the game at hand as we are dying in a system that they constructed for their benefit and not ours.

    We can never win in a game that we did not write...for as soon as they see us prospering or seriously playing the game...they are at liberty to simply change the rules which they have demonstrated that they have no problem doing....which accounts for the dramatic rise in the prison population of our children as they began playing a game that was constructed by and controlled by Europeans...The Drug Game.

    This economic game is the same way. They constructed it and they control it. When we wake up in the morning we could suddenly read and hear on the news that "paper money is no longer being used as currency". What do we do then? The fact is that we got to get out of their reality and define our own and that can not be done if we do not as a people control any natural resources. Are you with me here? Any people who do not control land and the resources from that land controls nothing! In light of understanding this, you tell me where our reality as black people in America should be focused? I already know the answer, I simply want you to tell me.

    That is probably the Illuminati's plan

    We jump up and down about Obama's visit to Ghana, but most don't know about the gold reserves found there and Cheney's plans since 2007 to Iraqize western Africa.
    Since January 21 many Blacks are saying they are no longer Black but American and have used the "Black agenda plans and solutions" as filler paper to house train their puppies.

    The con game has worked but the question remains, where is our plan to reverse the subliminal seduction?
    Because no one in a mental institution can build a community until they get their mind right first

    Rush limbaugh and Sean Hannity.....

    were known for the past 8 years for asking such questions, since under the Bush administration , if someone called 911, about a fire, they expected that person to be the fireman, anmd if someone called Emergency for a child hit by a car, they expect the caller to set the bones.
    I thought that kind of thinking was over since last year
