    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Do you think this is a true statement ... that white folk control all access to information?

    I think it's true. I think, if they didn't want us to know about something, we'd not know about it. Likewise, that which we do know, is only as a result of them allowing us to know it. Obviously confident in their own system of racism, conditioning they've put on us, that whatever information is currently on the table, we'll not be moved to act in any kind of seriously dissenting fashion.

    My thinking this way, is also the reason i'm often so perplexed at us arguing over information they've allowed us access to! Be it religion, politics, sex, whatever, it's only what they've allowed us to know. It's kinda like when the only book our Ancestors could read, was the Bible, but now they've opened the channels a little, letting a bit more information flow, but it is all just as censored. I don't understand why we fight over it. It's like they throw a new pebble of information into the pond of our lives, and we all scramble for it ... hungry for knowledge ... as we've been denied so much ... wanting to be the first to lay claim to it ... using it against each other to prove one is smarter than the next ... when the one who threw the pebble into our midst, knew ahead of time that we'd respond this way ... fighting each other over the new piece of information, the new pebble thrown into our pond. They probably stand back and say, wait let me throw the next one, no, let me, I can't wait to see them attack each other! We are so easily manipulated.


    What really cemented this position in my mind is Plies and this video :


    PLIES - 100 YEARS - VIDEO


    I really like this song, and said so in [ame="http://destee.com/forums/showthread.php?t=50348"]this thread[/ame]. Now, I don't know how long the song had been out, before I first heard it, but as soon as I did ... I Loved This Young Man! I was so impressed with his courage to speak the truth regarding the injustices of their justice system. Soon after it's release though, my Son told me that they were pulling all of Plies' music off the shelves, you couldn't buy it. He was saying the wrong stuff in his songs. I was like dang!

    Then ... all the next songs I hear from the Brother are about sex'n some chick. That's it.

    I was mad and disappointed with him. I was like dang, what happened Plies?!!!

    Well ... what happened to Plies is what happens to any message that has any real reach, it's killed. Not allowed to exist. Yeah, Plies could have continued singing about conscious stuff, but he'd not be able to eat and do that. Everyone wants to eat. Even if he chose not to eat, it would only be a matter of time before we stopped hearing from him, cause if you can't eat, you die.

    It made me think about every single song we hear, every movie we watch, every piece of information we come across ... it's all approved by the racist system in place ... to keep us in place.

    Another thing about the Plies situation ... he's calling white folk ******** in that song ... not just ******** ... but bleep bleep ******** ... that's probably another reason it was not allowed. Notice though, folk can make all the N word songs they want, but no ******* songs are allowed.

    Name a ******* song you can go in the store and buy, created by a Black person.

    Name a N word song you can go in the store and buy, created by a Black person.

    They control it all, giving it back to us in doses, as they see fit ... for us to run with and argue with each other over.

    Be it religion, politics, entertainment, law ... every area of human interaction ... they control the flow of information.

    If you don't think they control our access to information, can you name one piece of information that you have, that white folk did not give you, or approve for dissemination prior to your receiving it?

    I was mad at Plies ... but now I understand ... he's in the same boat as the rest of us ... wanting to eat, work, live, and doing no more than the rest of us ... to achieve that end. We all go to these folks' jobs, abide by their rules, pass their background checks, pee tests, clearances of whatever sort, so we can eat.

    If i'm gonna be mad at Plies, i gotta be mad at all my people, and I can't do that.

    Thanks for letting me vent a little.

    Love You!

    This is partially true, but that which IS true should lead those of us who believe we are heavily connected to the wisdom, power, and knowledge of the ancestors to question why and how this has ever been allowed to exist. How useful would establishing relationships with such entities (and even the Creator) be if the only way we would ever get life-altering information is through permission of the enemy? There is a substantial hole in the story that needs to be examined imho. Thanks for opening the discussion.

    Sister BlakLioness ... i agree with you, it is partially true, for there is a level of knowledge that even they can't deny us, if we would only put ourselves in a place to collectively receive it.

    I think this requires us loving each other, respecting each other, to get to this higher level of knowledge that can be used to overcome their reign of terror ... but we're so very conditioned to kill each other, fight each other ... never getting to the place we need to be.

    I think that's the only thing that stops us now ... us ... but we have to manifest this part, and it's easier said than done.

    White folk know this too, that's why they keep us all at odds with each other. Fighting over who's best, who's first, who's biggest, who's baddest, all of that. They know what the generations of oppression and mistreatment have done to us. They study caged animals, and what is needed when giving them even a semblance of freedom. Isn't it strange that there are such studies on caged animals, steps to take to introduce them back into the wild, yet there are no studies of us available ... probably the most captive people on the planet ... c'mon now ... they've done the studies, it's just not a part of the information approved for dissemination.

    It's only partially true, but the missing piece requires us to love and respect each other ... and we fight that ... blindly passing by the solution to our own dilemma.

    A vicious cycle, and they know it, which is why they work so hard to keep us at odds with each other.

    They know, if we ever collectively realize ... collectively manifest love and respect for each other ... it's over for them.

    Thanks for Sharing!

    they control most but not all.....

    i basically do agree with your points.
    however it is possible for black people to suss out correct information from the mess.
    we just have to be aware of the situation.

    here is some information that is not controlled

    METU NETER - ra un nefer amen

    this book is written by a black man. it talks about khemet. it is distributed by black.
    it is probably as close as we can come to having our own today.

    The statement is completely false. There is no such thing as absolute control over information. However, a lot of people can be fooled into thinking information is completely inaccessible or doesn't exist. It also seems pretty trivial distract minds with a sea of inanity to prevent them from doing any critical thinking.

    Right Brother James ... there are certainly some profound messages presented by Black Authors, no doubt.

    My point is though, is that they allow it.

    If they didn't want us to have access to this book, we would not have access to it.

    It kinda speaks to their confidence regarding the conditioning they've put on us, that the dissemination of this book would stop nothing.

    The killing, disrespect, fighting, all of it amongst us continues, with this book on our shelves.

    My mind thinks of The Spook Who Sat By The Door, and how that book (and movie?) was removed from access for a time.

    If they wanted this book done that way, they could have done it. Who could stop them? Not any of us.

    Like Mr. Fuller, Jr. has said, the cost of being in the racism business has gone up. They can no longer get away with giving us just the Bible, or having a token Lena Horne alone. No, they have to give us more to keep us quelled, so they systematically pick what will be allowed, what won't, to what degree it will impact us, them, their system of racism, etc. I'm sure they even plan on it being introduced in a way that they know we will immediately begin to fight about it. In fact, I'm sure many fought over what is in this book vs what they already believed, i.e., had been given previously.

    Everything is thought out before hand, to the best of their abilities i'm sure.

    Love You!

    Brother Gorilla ... i'm only sharing my opinion, and am open to any and all correction.

    How do you know there is no such thing as absolute control over information? What evidence do you have of that?

    I presented my evidence in the opening post, that someone does control what songs, movies, news, etc., are accessible to us.

    Are you saying no one controls that?

    Let's talk about it.

    and to be honest

    Can electricity, gas, telephone, cable, food , and security, be considered to be "information"?

    So really what is it that WE are serious about discussing controlling for ouselves?
