    Thank You

    Hello Everyone.
    It was so wonderful this evening
    to come together in chat
    and Honor Our Ancestor.
    It is from there love
    That I am here now with you all
    and I can write the words you are reading
    and I can read the words that are written
    and I understand within my heart
    the true meaning of US
    and the price they paid
    for our freedom
    Because of their love of US,
    The children

    Ashe

    Peace and Love

    Peace Bluewater.
    Gee, I missed much, but was blessed by what I was so honored to hear. What a wonderful evening it was. What are we without our ancestors? Thank you queentswana, for gathering all of us together, and for sharing yourself and your family with us. And I thank everyone who contributed their words and wisdom.

    Marcus Garvey from ATL Federal Prison 1925

    http://rapidshare.com/files/16692787/marcus-garvey-atl-1925.mp3 read by OldSoul

    MARCUS GARVEY June 6,1925, The front-page editorial, printed in the Negro World, written in Atlanta Federal Penitentiary.
    Fellow Men of the BLACK Race, Greetings:
    The time has come for the Negro to forget and cast behind him his hero worship and adoration of other races, and to start out immediately, to create and emulate heroes of his own.
    We must canonize our own saints, create our own martyrs, and elevate to positions of fame and honor black men and women who have made their distinct contributions to our racial history. Sojourner Truth is worthy of the place of sainthood alongside of Joan of Arc; Crispus Attucks and George William Gordon are entitled to the halo of martyrdom with no less glory than that of the martyrs of any other race. Toussaint L'Ouverture's brilliancy as a soldier and statesman outshone that of a Cromwell, Napoleon and Washington; hence, he is entitled to the highest place as a hero among men. Africa has produced countless numbers of men and women, in war and in peace, whose lustre and bravery outshine that of any other people. Then why not see good and perfection in ourselves?
    We must inspire a literature and promulgate a doctrine of our own without any apologies to the powers that be. The right is ours and God's. Let contrary sentiment and cross opinions go to the winds. Opposition to race independence is the weapon of the enemy to defeat the hopes of an unfortunate people. We are entitled to our own opinions and not obligated to or bound by the opinions of others.
    If others laugh at you, return the laughter to them; if they mimic you, return the compliment with equal force. They have no more right to dishonor, disrespect and disregard your feeling and manhood than you have in dealing with them. Honor them when they honor you; disrespect and disregard them when they vilely treat you. Their arrogance is but skin deep and an assumption that has no foundation in morals or in law. They have sprung from the same family tree of obscurity as we have; their history is as rude in its primitiveness as ours; their ancestors ran wild and naked, lived in caves and in the branches of trees, like monkeys, as ours; they made human sacrifices, ate the flesh of their own dead and the raw meat of the wild beast for centuries even as they accuse us of doing; their cannibalism was more prolonged than ours; when we were embracing the arts and sciences on the banks of the Nile their ancestors were still drinking human blood and eating out of the skulls of their conquered dead; when our civilization had reached the noonday of progress they were still running naked and sleeping in holes and caves with rats, bats and other insects and animals. After we had already unfathomed the mysteries of the stars and reduced the heavenly constellations to minute and regular calculus they were still backwoodsmen, living in ignorance and blatant darkness.
    The world today is indebted to us for the benefits of civilization. They stole our arts and sciences from Africa. Then why should we be ashamed of ourselves? Their MODERN IMPROVEMENTS are but DUPLICATES of a grander civilization that we reflected thousands of years ago, without the advantage of what is buried and still hidden, to be resurrected and reintroduced by the intelligence of our generation and our prosperity. Why should we be discouraged because somebody laughs at us today? Who to tell what tomorrow will bring forth? Did they not laugh at Moses, Christ and Mohammed? Was there not a Carthage, Greece and Rome? We see and have changes every day, so pray, work, be steadfast and be not dismayed. As the Jew is held together by his RELIGION, the white races by the assumption and the unwritten law of SUPERIORITY, and the Mongolian by the precious tie of BLOOD, so likewise the Negro must be united in one GRAND RACIAL HIERARCHY. Our UNION MUST KNOW NO CLIME, BOUNDARY, or NATIONALITY. Like the great Church of Rome, Negroes the world over MUST PRACTICE ONE FAITH, that of Confidence in themselves, with One God! One Aim! One Destiny! Let no religious scruples, no political machination divide us, but let us hold together under all climes and in every country, making among ourselves a Racial Empire upon which "the sun shall never set."
    Let no voice but your own speak to you from the depths. Let no influence but your own raise you in time of peace and time of war. Hear all, but attend only that which concerns you. Your first allegiance shall be to your God, then to your family, race and country. Remember always that the Jew in his political and economic urge is always first a Jew; the white man is first a white man under all circumstances, and you can do no less than being first and always a Negro, and then all else will take care of itself. Let no one inoculate you for their own conveniences. There is no humanity before that which starts with yourself. "Charity begins at home." First to thyself be true, and "thou canst not then be false to any man." God and Nature first made us what we are, and then out of our own creative genius we make ourselves what we want to be. Follow always that great law.
    Let the sky and God be our limit, and Eternity our measurement. There is no height to which we cannot climb by using the active intelligence of our own minds. Mind creates, and as much as we desire in Nature we can have through the creation of our own minds. Being at present the scientifically weaker race, you shall treat others only as they treat you; but in your homes and everywhere possible you must teach the higher development of science to your children; and be sure to develop a race of scientists par excellence, for in science and religion lies our only hope to withstand the evil designs of modern materialism. Never forget your God. Remember, we live, work and pray for the establishing of a great and binding RACIAL HIERARCHY, the rounding of a RACIAL EMPIRE whose only natural, spiritual and political limits shall be God and "Africa, at home and abroad."

    I would absolutely love to have grabbed a copy of this since "technical difficulties" prohibited me from hearing it in chat. (I've found out that there is an update to linux-flash9 that may work better ... I hope.)

    However, I'll not be going through the hassle of "benefitting" some site's usage counters to do so. Now, were this hosted at your site, oldsoul, I'd be more inclined to download it to listen to at other times as I see that it is, indeed, a most powerful and inspiriational piece.

    Is this available for download from any other venue? I do not, will not, and, in good conscience, CAN not support capitalistic enterprises in any fashion ... although, I might would be more willing to support such endeavors were it absolutely proven that said endeavors were of direct and FULL benefit of Africans.

    Very nice piece! Thank you for sharing another Grand bit of "Consciousness Raising"!!

    Something to always concider and Not forget...again*

    Hotep

    Along with the "INDOCTRINATION" into the Absolutely corrupt, fabricated, illusions of "ALL" religions taught by the (system of white superimacy) Arabs, Europeans and Asians...there is the Brain Numbing to repeat trivia...to "Repeat" the same "Lie" in places of worship...Over and over and over again and again from age 5 to age 95. Never knowing the truth about any thing because "We" excepted what ever the parents and grandparents was thought by the Slave system they grew up in. "The only thing a Slave Parent can teach their Children is how to be a good Slave".

    The Amerikkkan system of "Slavery" knew that in order to keep the Black kidnapped so-called African children in Slavery...they would have to satisfy the in-born need of the ''Earths" black-indigenous people occupied with their own white made up "Myths" and false illusionary concoctions of "Sanctified-Racist" perpitrasion of Spiritual-Death that has/is been tought by them (whites) for the past 2,000 years and on up until today (Negro-Preachers or Imps) with out exception.

    The Slave-Masters U.S. Government and all of its supporting offices ...including their "First" Tool of choice..."Religions"...will never under any circumstances Teach the Slaves "Right" and will never under any circumstances...Treat the (Black-Negro) Slave right...and only a Slave (fool who never learns) who is whipped could think such a thing. So the white Mis-Educational (School) indoctrination centers...only teach the Slave what the Masters want them to know...all the way down to the PHD...the Slave will still be a Slave to the System of White Superimacy and nothing more but certainly much, much, much less than what a Black man and Black woman is Born to be. They (colonialized blacks) have been turn into "Animals" with out the Hue-Manity they were born with...but replaced with a love / hate relationship...meaning...Love for anything (european) white and hate for every thing Black. hence...Religions that teach and make it lawful to have and keep Black Slaves. And at the same time approve the worship of (absolutely-false) White Images of so-called...Devine european "Ancestors". But the African now...no longer knows "Self" (black-ancestors) or honors his own "Past" that is called "History" that is nothing more than the "Black-Ancestors" that made that history...that Mr and Mrs Boot-licker Black Negro Amerikkkan now rejects in favor of identifying with any one but him or her black "Self"...while being at the same time...educated to the highest standards of the system of white superimacy.

    You are your Ancestors and your Ancestors are You!

    You are your Children and your Children are you!

    You (We) live on through our Children as our Ancestors lived on through 'Us' !

    The Ancestors are All of us...the only thing that seperates us is "Time and Space"..."We" are one and the Same.

    So-called Black (African) History is no history with out the "Culture" of the people who made it. In other words our Blackness is nothing with out the (so-called African) "Culture" that our "Ancestors" were born in. hence... Black-Negro-Dumb...what culture is that!??

    With out the proper Honor, Love, Respect and Most High Place we must put them (Black so-called African Ancestors) in..."We" are Lost and can't have the proper Honor, Love, Respect and Most High Place for our Selves...that is our Collective History...the Ancestors !!!

    You are "Not-Saved" from anything what so ever except your own Sanity and you don't know your self...you only know what the white man wants you to know from the Colonial system of white superimacy through the Religions they gave you after they made you...Blind, Deaf, Dumb, Ignorant, Stupid, Crazy, In-Sane to who you are in place they (white-race) caused your grand parent, you and your black children to love only the White Gods that they gave You.

    No matter how Devoted you and your Family have been to their (white-world) Concocted White Heros and Gods...They have absolutely Saved or Taken you No-Ware but the Hell that you are already in and Don't Even Know IT !!! Our Collective present condition is a violation to the Natural Order of Things...how then are any of you Saved?

    Ase`




    Note: The only way that your history can be a mystery is for you to not know who your "Ancestors" are. Every ware the Black Man and the Black Woman has gone...they have always left a Trail...and that "Trail" is your History!!
