    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Our Beloved Chief Elder Osiris has posted threads on our Beloved Ancestor Marcus Garvey, which in turn, encouraged our Beloved Brother OldSoul to teach on him during his class. I learned so much! We had the pleasure of hearing his voice, feeling his passion in the rhythm of his words. We could hear his determination and love for us as a people. His desire to make us an independent people, able to care for our own needs, our own selves. He did such a great work and he makes me even more proud of the fact that i am Black.

    As a result of the above, the class Brother OldSoul held, i'm left wondering who amongst us will be the Marcus Garvey of today? Who will unite our people from all corners of the world, strengthen, love, and encourage us?

    Who is that person ... where are they?

    Is it you?

    :heart:

    Man.

    I'D like to know this too.

    Considering the demographics of Blacks
    throughout the diaspora today,
    which seems to celebrate a kind of

    racial social indifference 'long as WE got money,'
    I'D like to know this too, and I'M Glad it ain't ME.

    (The next Honorable Marcus Garvey.)

    ROARIN.........

    Brother James ... in order to be our Marcus of today ... you have to get people to listen to you.

    If you can't do that, you can't be Marcus.

    Not only must you be able to get them to listen, but you must be able to get them to act.

    No easy feat, i agree.

    There are plenty of Garveyites among us the problem is we don't want to embrace this concept of sovreignty. Again we are afraid to be free and live as we were intented to live. We are likened to horses born incaptivity. We are conditioned so well that when "massa" slips up and leaves the fence open instead going to our freedom we close the fence. We not only keep ourselves in but our brothers and sisters as well. The concept of a sovreign Black Nation is not an impossibilty but it will not happen over night either. This is something we may never see in our lifetime. This should be consider an on going project passed from generation to generation until the day of Exodus. Even then a substantial ammount of us will not leave.


    Peace.....

    Brother Radical ... does being a "Garveyite" mean they are the Marcus of today?

    The reason i ask, is because if the above is true, then there should also be evidence of the unifiying energy that our Beloved Marcus manifested. If Garveyites are the Marcus' of today, then we should be united (at least) in the same number, across the continents, as our Beloved Marcus did it. We should have ships, and planes, and trains, and jobs for our people ... building off of what our Beloved Marcus accomplished.

    Not to take anything away from the Garveyites of today, but should they be considered our Marcus of today, if they are not able to accomplish even what he was able to do, many years ago?

    His will not be easy shoes to fill.

    Simple. For the love of 'money,'
    OUR People cannot even agree
    what flavor ice cream WE should chose.

    I'VE been a Black Community Activist
    for over thirty years now and 'things'
    have never been as bad as they are today.

    "Let's offer the 'heathen' a retirement plan,
    and he'll sell his own mother up to prostitution."
    And this is ultimately what happens.

    This is what they have said,
    and is also proven everyday.

    What do WE say to OUR People, that
    has not already been said? By Marcus Garvey,
    Malcolm X, Huey Newton and the list goes on.

    Sis DESTEE......whatever happens with OUR
    next 'voice,' I'M glad it ain't ME.
    WE don't even listen.

    But, Peace.

    ROARIN........
