    please understand that the preceding precepts are imperative for this to take place

    Unity is necassary as Malcolm stressed regading our attitude towards each others religions

    Self Determination, means we are as Malcolm also said name ouselves by virtue of our race, not by our religion

    UJIMA:COLLECTIVE WORK & RESPONSIBILITY:3rd principle encourages self-criticism & personal evaluation, as it relates to the common good of the family/community. Without collective work & struggle, progress is impossible. N other words, "Chek Uself b4 U rek Uself" Dont b so quick to blame others: teach urself a lesson! Find Value n others

    The family/community must accept the reality that we are collectively responsible for our failures, as well as our victories & achievements.

    "DO WHAT YOU CAN WHERE YOU ARE AS AN INDIVIDUAL"

    "LAY YOUR BUCKET WHERE YOU ARE"

    OK OK OK why shout?

    Many of us are doing that

    and have been doing that since reconstruction,

    but look at the condition of the
    black community

    have things gotten better or worse?

    And what does doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results

    equate?

    Is something more then just doing the same needed?

    The libertarians use a term that is clear, called collectivism, when they speak about the various tentacles of the
    Illuminati
    the think tanks , the special bloodline secret societes

    They understand the oligarchy opresses by virtue of not being individual but by being colllective so if one is being opressed

    and in our case for 400 years how ion the what not can any one defend themselves unless by using collective strategy as well?

    Can you punch someone in a fight with your fingers seperate?

    What happens your finger gets broke one after the other,

    but put those seperate fingers into a fist and you get,
    what Malcolm called some "real dialogue"

    In each major city we catch the same hell,
    in the same issues and same nightmares

    therefore a collective solution and process is needed.

    Regardless of what any person of African descent thinks about the president, we seem to forget that

    in reality we used a lot of collective effort with this technology here

    to get a Black man into office.

    Therefore why cant we use it to solve our problems state by state amd share state to state methodologies of solutions?

    And bust the move, when the new white supremacy comes out in the form of not a new Jim Crow in the next 3 years but a real fascism,

    we will have a responsibility to prepare for the inevitable, on a collective basis,
    since we may definatly face

    the removal of governement benefits that millions of Black folks depend on like

    1 Public Housing
    2 HUD
    3 public education
    4 city and community univerisites
    5 city hospitals
    6 civil service jobs
    7 child care
    8 job training
    9 post incarceration living spaces and job placement
    10 neighborhood health centers
    11 childrens after school centers
    public libraries
    12 and for the elderly medicare and social security
