    Here in the last few years our icons are passing away. Our long standing voices are going silent. With the passing of the old guard who are the new voices of our people? Who is continuing our struggle? Is our direction changing. Are our goals and aspirations differents now. Have we achieve the dream of those who bleed, cried, sweated, spent sleepless nights, put the needs of themselves and their families aside, were afraid, were alone, had heavy hearts and faced danger. Who responsibility is it to carry the touch further into the night lighting the way..Your thoughts....

    Brother Radical ... i believe we're all responsible to continue the fight, and none of us have the luxury of waiting for someone else to do it. All of us who claim to love ourself and our people, are obligated to do all we can to move us forward. There are so many things we can do individually (and collectively). We should be doing these things yesterday, last week, last year, long before our Elders become Ancestors.

    I truly believe that all of us have the potential to be leaders. We must nurture and grow it within ourselves.

    "We today...and our "Children" tomorrow will continue the "Fight"!!!

    Hotep

    Please take the "Time" to ponder over this..."We" are our "Ancestors" and our "Ancestors" are "Us"!! There "Is-No" difference between us today and us yesterday! With out them (African-Ancestors) we would not "Be" Africans or so-called African-Americans today* We "Foolishly" and "Ignorantly" think that we are somehow a different people today..."How" can this be possible??? It is impossible for us to be any thing different than who we are and always have been and always will be..."Africans"!!! In this "Life" what we don't accomplish today..."We" will "Still" have to accomplish that tomorrow!! Our struggle is a collective struggle and a continuation of something that started more than 5,000 years ago. While "We" are absolutly "Lost" in European distortions of the truth...Lost compleatly in "Foolish" and "Crazy" "Biblical-Myths" we have come to think Crazy like the Crazy so-called White-Man and White-Woman!! There is "Nothing" in European "Religion, Thoughts, Anti-Culture etc. that is "Good for Africans" or black people what so ever!! We must "Wake-Up" and stop being afraid to "Think" African and that is to think for our self and "Learn" who "Self-Is"!! Those of us who know...Are willing to stand up and give our "Life" for the cause of "African-Liberation"..."Nothing else Matters". And what we don't do today to "Free" our "Minds, Souls, Bodies, Spirits...We Will have to do it in the future"..."Why sould we say we love our selves and our children and leave them to "Fend" for them self in the future life because we are afraid of what some idiot White-Supermacy system is doing to us today?? How do you want to be remembered by your future (Self) Children?? What will they read about "You"?? Are the history books of the future going to say..."These Neggahs was scard, crazy, foolish, spoiled, stupid and didn't care about nothing but them self and what there Enemies gave to them like crumbs from their table??? We will risk our life for something foolish and ignorant but won't risk our life to do "Good"...for "Freedom" for our own....Salvation??!!! No!...we will "Fight" to the last Man and Woman if "We" have to...but we won't have to do that...we will survive, prosper and build a "New-World" for our (Children) furtre Life by any means nessasry! There is no other choice...and nothing else matters...because our present condition is Absolutly un-exceptable to our selves our ancestors and our (G-d) Creator.

    It is the responsibility of ALL of US, as a Collective.
