    Time and time again the question has been raised as to who we are. Noble Drew Ali told us we are the Moors of N. Africa. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad told us we were the lost tribe of Shabazz. Yahweh ben Yahweh told us we are Hebrew Israelites. But really who are we? Could it be that all 3 of those men were correct? Is it possible that they each taught about the same people, but used a different name? So really, who are we?

    This Question is so Vivid Brother the Curiousity is the Desire of Nature and Truth.

    (Trying to stimulate and steady-stream my intelligent niche here)

    I must ask something in Conjoining the minds thought to where this Might be taken.

    Who do we WISH to be?

    I wish to be no one that I am not. Like Noble Drew Ali used to say, you can't a person's nationality. Who you are born as is who you will be

    As I am with you Brother Knowledge Seed

    When I read the Question I thought Yes.....Who are we....REALLY.
    But I cant help but let t plague me in wodering what the answer to who we Wish to be, would be.

    As we continue in time. Had toward the Future. Us as people are STILL very immature. Many African Descendandt to me, really do knot know who they WANT to be. Or they Wish to be something, but just not themselves.

    It's more than Self Acceptance or Self Esteem. It's Self Passion, Self Knowledge, and Self beauty.

    When you are Beautiful, ou can onl but Help sein the Beauty in our Brothers and Sisters.

    Not the 'good lookingness' of yourself, but the Beauty

    True indeed. I can't blame us for not knowing who we are. Look what happened to us: We went from Gods, Goddesses, Kings and Queens to ni99as, Bitch3s, Pimps, and Hoes.

    That s what is Sad....Growing from that....where does a People grow to?
    a couple of N**8*s a Few H888 and Such.
    I am sure we believe MUCH in our Selves(being sarcastic)
    People are Okay with that. When I sayb people I mean Affricans. Okay wih being poor, okay with being Hustlers and Robbers, okay with Crme and Drug rates, okay with broken Homes.

    Afte all of this, people can only wish to be left alone, or be okay. Being that many do not realize we are still N888s we "just want ours"
    Instead of want to to come out Better

    Well most Africans have no clue of their greatness. I you don't know you are great then you are not going to act like it. You will only do what you know. If you know nothing you will do nothing.

    You don't have to find them. If they want to know, they will find YOU. Just make sure you're ready to teach them.
