Malcolm X's Assassination after 40
Unraveling here is one of the perplexing mysteries of our time. I’ve understood the life, struggle, and death of Malcolm X on a higher plain at February 1996 when I was 12 (being 13 years old later on that year, so I was born in 1983). Today, I fathom tons of facts about Malcolm X. He was born in May 19, 1925 in Omaha, Nebraska named Malcolm Little. Louise Norton Little was his mother being a homemaker. His father was Earl Little, who promoted the Black Nationalist Movement of Marcus Garvey. Earl died and it is suspected that the white supremacist groups of the Black Legion were involved in his death. The reason is because Little’s stong preaching and civil rights activism. The Black Legion gave death threats to him. Little wanted black people to come to Africa similar to the sayings of Marcus Garvey. Louise went into a nervous breakdown and her 8 children were split into foster homes and orphanages. Malcolm was smart in his school work and was focused. He graduated from junior high at the top of his class, but his school teacher discouraged his goal of being a lawyer by saying that it was “no realistic goal for a n____.” He dropped out, worked odd jobs, traveled to Boston and NYC.
Malcolm was also embroiled in narcotics, prostitution, and gambling rings. His friend with him was Malcolm “Shorty” Jarvis. “Shorty” and Malcolm were arrested and convicted for burglary charges in 1946. Malcolm was sent to prison in Charleston, MA. By 1948, he learned of the racist cult of the Nation of Islam. The N.O.I. was invented by a salesman and Elijah Muhammad took it over later. This is the ironic thing. Wallace D. Fard, the salesman, invented the Nation of Islam and he was half Polynesian (Asian) and half-white plus a religious teacher. Fard told Elijah Poole, son of a Baptist minister in 1931 to dress like Arab Muslims from the Middle East (he actually used African clothing). Poole left Christianity and Fard gave him the name Karriem. Then, Fard tried to slander black Christians and said that Christianity was a white man’s religion and that black people need to embrace his vision of Islam when Muhammad owned slaves. The N.O.I. called Fard “Master” Fard Muhammad like in slavery times. Fard, again, was a half-white man forming the Nation of Islam with his lies about Christianity. The Nation of Islam’s doctrines include that black people are superior to all other people and white people are devils created by the scientist Yaccub in the island of Patmos. They also feel that after the end times, the black man will once again reign the Earth. They’re obviously wrong since no human ought to be degraded in dehumanization and all men are equal in the eyes of God. We ought to be no respecter of persons. From one blood, God created all mankind.
He left prison in 1952 and changed his name from Malcolm Little to Malcolm X. “X” means the unknown in mathematics, so he wanted to forsake the surname Little, which was a slave name. With his great intelligence and articulateness, he expanded the membership of the N.O.I. across the country. Malcolm X was minister and a national spokesman. Newspaper columns, radio, and television was used by non-Sunni Muslims to give the N.O.I.’s message. The N.O.I. had 30,000 people in 1963 from 500 in 1952. The FBI soon infiltrated the Nation of Islam by monitoring. According to authors Louis Lomax and Karl Evanzz, John X. Ali was a FBI informant. In fact, according to Lomax, John X. Ali was an ex-FBI agent. That's a red flag right there. John X. Ali became the N.O.I.’s national security in early 1960. It’s a known historical fact that the FBI with its agents placed wiretaps, bugs, and camera surveillance to monitor the N.O.I. They followed Malcolm across the globe by the CIA. As time rent on, many members of the N.O.I. were jealous of Malcolm X because of his popularity, intelligence, and influence in America. As early as 1955, Malcolm X heard rumors of Elijah Muhammad’s adultery with young women. One mistress of Elijah personally told Malcolm of Elijah’s sin and Elijah’s children out of wedlock. Malcolm X was crushed and after JFK’s assassination he called it “a case of chickens coming home to roost.” This was a controversial comment and Malcolm X has to clarify that the violence in America caused his death and he wasn’t trying to personally disrespect the man at all.
With the N.O.I.’s racist view of white people, they could care less about JFK’s death. So, they exploited the tragedy and Malcolm’s comments to get rid of him permanently. The N.O.I. had jealousy of Malcolm X. By December 1963, he formed the Afro-American Unity-Muslim Mosque Inc. In fact, Malcolm X was among one of the first men who used the word Afro-American and African American. In February 1964, a friend of Malcolm warned him that he refused to bomb his car on orders of a mosque official from the N.O.I. Malcolm X said his famous “Ballot or Bullet" speech in 1964 as well. When he traveled to Mecca in April 19, 1964, he longer was a racist, but wanted equality for all men with a new, positive insight into race relations. Also, Malcolm X visited Saudi Arabian Prince Faisal, Nigeria, Libya, Morocco, and other places before his death. He came there to unite black people worldwide to advance justice for black people in America.
Malcolm X supported interracial marriage in a January interview at 1965 and talked of good white people in 1964-1965. In June 21, 1964, Malcolm X created the new group of the Organization of Afro-American Unity. Its purpose was to in his own words to do “whatever is necessary to bring the Negro struggle from the level of civil rights to the level of human rights.” He believed in Black Nationalism and self defense. Malcolm X adamantly oppose the neo-imperalism of the West, because it constricted the Third World from having the self-determination to develop their own nations. He reinforced the ideal that unity with whites, but first there must be black unity. Malcolm X said you can’t unify with no other groups unless the black people must be unified themselves. On a regular occasion, he received death threats, intimidation, monitoring, and even assault by 2 men. He was the first prominent man to oppose the Vietnam War in 1964. Also, he was the first man to expose the connection and collaboration between the Masonic KKK and the Masonic N.O.I. Malcolm rightfully said that the KKK and the N.O.I. had the “same paymasters.” See, Freemasons like Albert Pike, Forest (plus ex-Confederate soldiers and members of the Knights of the Golden Circle. The KKK’s rituals, ceremonies, and oaths originated form the Scottish occult Secret Society called the Horsemen or Horse Whispers. That's why some believe that the KKK has a Scottish relationship), and William Joseph Simmons in 1915 were all involved in creating the Ku Klux Klan.
In Eric Jon Phelps’ “Vatican Assassins,” a former N.O.I. member gave Eric documents detailing that Elijah Muhammad, Wallace Muhammad (Elijah’s son), and Louis Farrakhan are Prince Hall Freemasons. Prince Hall Freemasonry is a rite primarily for only black people. In fact in 1985, Tom Metzeger, who is the Grand Dragon of the California KKK gave the N.O.I. $100 in LA and Tom admitted that there is a KKK-NOI alliance. Malcolm X told of the KKK-N.O.I. conspiracy together in February 15, 1965. This was after his house was firebombed in February 14, 1965 at 2:46 am. Malcolm X was shot and murdered during an OAAU rally at the Aududon Ballroom at February 21, 1965 [3:10 pm.] by 3 men. They were Talmager Hayer, Norman 3X Bulter, and Thomas 15X Johnson. All men were members of the N.O.I. It’s a fact that the FBI and N.O.I. wanted Malcolm X neutralized and evidence points to their involvement in his death. For one, all of the killers are N.O.I. and the FBI infiltrated the N.O.I. for years prior to Malcolm X’s death. In the black ex-N.O.I. for years prior to Malcolm X’s death. In a secret letter between an ex-NOI member and Eric Jon Phelps, the ex-NOI member (Named “Ali”) admits to the FBI/NOI involvement in Malcolm X’s death. Again, an ex-black N.O.I. member sent a secret letter to Eric Jon Phelps, where he admitted to the FBI/N.O.I. involvement in Malcolm X’s death. According to the man, Louis Farrakhan was the supervisor to make sure it was executed and Wallace Muhammad was a tool for the FBI/Vatican since 1963-1964. According to the man, there were many conspirators and the man who gave the order to kill Malcolm X was Pope Paul IV, who was the first Pope to walk in America. He was assassinated for numerous reasons.
Those reasons are that he was the first public figure to expose the fact that the KKK and the Nation of Islam worked together on several occasions to create strife, agitation, and racial unrest in America for both groups are either Masonic invented or Masonic controlled. The Masonic FBI (as evident on how J. Edgar Hoover ruled the FBI and he was a 33rd Degree Freemason) and the Masonic Nation of Islam killed Malcolm X. The FBI had programs like Operation Choas, COINTELPRO, etc that infiltrated many civil rights, anti-war, etc groups. After his visit to Mecca, Malcolm's X's order of business after founding the OAAU was to internationalize the struggle of African-Americans in the United States. Malcolm X later tried to send through a petition to the United Nations, charging the American government with genocide against 22 million black Americans. As ultimately outlined the petition charged the government of the United States with economic genocide, mental harm, murder, conspiracy, and complicity to commit genocide. The petition declared that in its treatment of African-Americans, the U.S. government had violated not only its own Constitution, but also the Charter of the United Nations, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the 1948 Draft Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. His petition would start a massive revolution in society and he opposed the war in Vietnam so he died. I don’t agree with his stance of asking for the United Nations for help, but Malcolm X was right to ask black Americans to reject the draft to fight in the illegal war in Vietnam (with no declaration of war, but solely a Gulf of Tonkin Resolution like in Iraq. LBJ admitted that the Gulf of Tonkin was based on false information on a tape. McNamara admitted that one part of the Gulf on Tonkin incident was a fraud on the Documentary entitled "Fog of War."). Malcolm X supported interracial marriage and said in January 1965:
“I believe in recognizing every human being as a human being, neither white, black, brown nor red. When you are dealing with humanity as one family, there's no question of integration or intermarriage. It's just one human being marrying another human being, or one human being living around and with another human being. I may say, though, that I don't think the burden to defend any such position should ever be put upon the black man. Because it is the white man collectively who has shown that he is hostile towards integration and towards intermarriage and towards these other strides towards oneness. So, as a black man, and especially as a black American, I don't think that I would have to defend any stand that I formerly took. Because it's still a reaction of the society and it's a reaction that was produced by the white society. And I think that it is the society that produced this that should be attacked, not the reaction that develops among the people who are the victims of that negative society.”
Although for me personally as a black man, I want to marry in the future a black woman. That's just me. There is nothing with other people having interracial dating or interracial marriage though, so I want to make that clear. Likewise, there is nothing wrong nor immoral about promoting black unity. Black Unity is a wonderful and beautiful form of human existence. One bad thing Malcolm X did was that he never left the false religion of Islam. Malcolm X was right to give facts on true black history, instill international black unity across continents, supported self-defense, but was still a Muslim. What can you expect from the FBI? They created COINTELPRO to infiltrate and prevent civil rights groups to enact real reforms in the U.S.A. They condemned the ascendance of a black “Messiah” to galvanize black America to achieve economic equality, which is just as important as social or legal equality. Wiretap programs like Carnivore and the illegal USA Patriot Act still exist today to monitor dissidents of the establishment. Malcolm X’s lesson is to fight for truth and never become afraid to speak out as a man. He also taught us to be thankful, acknowledge, and express gratitude of your God-given heritage. Hatred of any group of people whether blacks or whites is never justified at all. It seems that the Elite want racial hatred to desensitize us and make us ungodly, but God tells us to Love our neighbor. I am a black man, so I will follow God instead of the world, Hollywood, and man.
One of the most well-known examples of Police Brutality is what happened to Fred Hampton in Chicago. Fred Hampton was an outspoken Black Panther who was murdered in December 1969. Now, whether you agree with all of his politics, Fred Hampton was in his early 20's when he died. He read tons of book and realize the intricate nature of politics and economics in his early 20's. Fred Hampton was murdered on December 4, 1969 on 6:00 am. And every shot fired in the apartment was fully automatic weapons used by the police. It was unprovoked. There was next to no return fire and it would be years later until Hampton’s mother won a lawsuit against the City of Chicago. Her mother won the lawsuit back in the day, because the shooting was so cold blooded by the police in Chicago that there was no justification for it. Fred Hampton is still a very famous black American. Amadou Diallo was blatantly oppressed by being shot 41 times and 17 striking the body. Diallo was unarmed and the police car in plain clothing and from an unmarked car. The police never identified themselves. The cops, lawyers, and judge all had a party after the trial. Recently in 2005, an unarmed man was shot over 100 times by the LAPD, more than a decade after the Rodney King beating. I’m not bashing all police, but this is fact going on for decades. It’s wrong to have a police state, it’s also wrong to have racial profiling and police beating the mess out of people because of their ideology, creed, gender, orientation, race, or any classification of human beings.

Yuri Kochiyama is one of the unsung heroes of the Civil Rights Movement. The person who influenced her a lot was Malcolm X ironically. She knew and respected Malcolm X before she met him. When they have both met, they became very close friends. She back then agreed with the view that black people who have self-determination, self reliance, self defense, and a sovereign sense of total liberation (as Malcolm X believed). Yuri Kochiyama shook Malcolm X's hand in a courthouse in Brookyln, NY. Ms. Kochiyama talked wanting to shake his hand in these words: “Malcolm, can I shake your hands, too?” Later, Malcolm X said: “What for?” Later, Yuri said: “What for?...Because what you’re doing for your people.” And he said, “And what am I doing for my people?” Now, she thought, “What would I say to that?” So, she said that: “You are giving directions.” Malcolm strode out of the crowd with a smile, and shook Ms. Kochiyama’s hand. This event occured in October 16, 1963, which was before JFK's assassination. Yuri wanted Malcolm X to speak at a Hiroshima/Nagasaki Wrld Peace Study in a meeting. Malcolm X came in the door of the meeting in 1964 to make comments at the small convention. Malcolm X thanked the Japanese for ocming into Harlem. Later, Malcolm X gave the Japanese people a tour of neighborhoods and living conditions in Harlem that was in contrast to Harlem's "The World's Worst Fair." Yuri even worked in the OAAU or the Organization for Afro-American Unity. She joined Malcolm X's Liberation School to understand information on Black history and politics. She says in --- “…we didn't know anything about black history, black thinking, or black culture, and in order to understand the black community and and its people, we thought we'd better sign up. So we enrolled, along with our three eldest children, Billy, Audee, and Aichi. The education we received was priceless." Malcolm X and Yuri agreed with the view that if a person doesn't know their history and the essence of their culture, you can't have real interactions between different cultures. Malcolm X believed in black nationalism in that black people should operate, own, and control their own businesses and communities. He also said that: "...We will work with anyone, with any group, no matter what their color is, as long as they are genuinely interested in [ending black injustice]." Kochiyama was of course a Japanese human rights activist. She and her family went into the concentration camps of WWII. This was when about 120,000 Japanese Americans were unjustly interned during WWII. She saw segregration in the camp near Arkansas via Jim Crow. By 1960, she and her husband Bill moved to Harlem, NY to fight for human rights. She was present at his assassination on February 21, 1965 at the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem, and held him in her arms as he lay dying. In 1977, she tried to promoted Puerto Rican independence via joining a group of Puerto Ricans (that took over the Statue Liberty). She wanted to promote the rights of political prisoners and called for nuclear disarmament. She was nominated for the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize.
Men like JFK, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Robert Kennedy, and others wanted to solve the poverty issue, end the war in Vietnam, and seek a more peaceful world. The Tea Party bring up legitimate issues, but they act now as a bulwark against comprehensive proposals to solve issues in America (beyond just simplistic slogans). We don't need more wars or a war on drugs, but we also don't need poor bashing, eliminating all services from people, and hatred of any effort by Congress to improve people's lives.
*On February 2005, Professor Manning Marable was interviewed by Amy Goodman (though a Left Gatekeeper) and the Professor confirmed what I’m presenting. Not only did the government agitate conflict between the N.O.I. and Malcolm X, but the NYPD stood down (ie. Gene Roberts was the undercover cop giving Malcolm X mouth to mouth). Hence, Security was lowered for Malcolm X in the ballroom. These actions made the murder of Malcolm X more easier to achieve. Malcolm X developed further in his thinking and brought women in a leadership role of the AAUO, which many of Muslim Mosque Inc. [a group Malcolm was also in] didn’t like. This meant that Malcolm X accepted the equality of the sexes, which is true. So, the NYPD, FBI, NOI, and other elements disliked Malcolm X and all evidence indicates that these groups played a role in his death.

Since people take a huge interest in this subject, here's more information about Malcolm X:

Feb. 15, 1965: Malcolm X puts the blame for the firebombing of his home directly on the Nation of Islam and explains other ways in which his life is in danger.
MALCOLM X: OXFORD UNION DEBATE (December 3, 1964)
Malcolm X predicts the power shift in global politics from the U.S. and European countries to the Asian and African countries.
Karl Evanzz, a staff writer for the Washington Post, researched more than 300,000 pages of declassified FBI and CIA documents for his book, The Judas Factor. In its introduction he states, "After analyzing these resources, I am convinced that Louis E. Lomax, an industrious African-American journalist who befriended Malcolm X in the late 1950's, had practically solved the riddle of his assassination." He believed that Malcolm X was set up for the assassination by a former friend, John Ali, who was an agent/informer for an intelligence agency. Malcolm X had previously commented that Ali had been responsible for his ouster from the NOI. Ali eventually rose to the position of National Secretary of the NOI. Lomax was later killed in an automobile accident (due to brake failure).
It is now known that government and law enforcement agencies planted infiltrators in the OAAU, NOI and almost all of the other civil rights movement organizations. Some of these agent/informers were highly placed. Their assignments were not only to report on all of their activities, plans and members, but to create disruption, distrust and to frighten any supporters. The involvement of the government's "Cointelpro" (counter-intelligence program) operation to "neutralize" Malcolm X through BOSS, the NOI, and organized crime is strongly inferred by Evanzz in his book. The goal of the Cointelpro program was to neutralize radical and subversive political organizations and dissidents through covert means, such as "black-bag jobs," where agents/informers would enter homes and offices without warrants and remove or copy files, records ore plant incriminating material.
Portion of speech by Kwame Ture, then still known as Stokely Carmichael, chairman of the militant Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), delivered it in front of the Mississippi State Capitol at Jackson on June 26, 1966. (Ture would turn 25 three days later.)
His speech was part of a series of talks that marked the the end of the historic "Meredith March Against Fear," which was initiated by the quixotic James Meredith, who, with the help of federal troops and U. S. marshals, "racially" integrated the University of Mississippi in October 1962.
Meredith was shot, but not killed, on the first day of his lone-wolf march thru the bastion of "racial" segregation, but it was soon taken up by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) and SNCC, which had recently elected Ture as its new chairman.
LET THE WORD GO FORTH (WITH APOLOGIES TO PRESIDENT KENNEDY)
It was during this march, which historians have only recently begun to treat with the respect that it has always deserved, that SNCC youth organizer Mukasa Dada, then known as Willie Ricks, and Ture raised the call for Black Power.
This both signaled and helped hasten the transformation of the most militant and activist wing of the modern civil-rights movement, which went from seeking "racial" integration (or at least desegregation) and equality to developing and projecting "black" pride, dignity and consciousness and demanding and organizing for "black" self-determination.
A SNICKER AMONG SLICKERS
During his speech, Ture, who was born at Trinidad, raised in the Bronx and educated at Howard University, was surrounded by officers and field workers of the SCLC (which some reporters called "slick" in apparent response to the more phonetically pleasing "snick" for SNCC). From left, they were the reverends Walter E. Fauntroy, Andrew J. Young, R. B. Cottonreader (wearing glasses), Hosea L. Williams and Dr. Ralph D. Abernathy.
While most of them appeared nervous about Ture's remarks, Reverend Fauntroy applauded his call for "black" pride.
The most temperamental of these SCLC leaders was the Rev. Hosea Williams. During the previous 10 days, while SNCC and SCLC were marching down Mississippi's hot, dusty and still very dangerous roads, raising "black" spirits and consciousness, Ture and Williams waged nightly rhetorical battles at meetings held at rural "black" churches and schools.
Beginning on June 16, Ture's call for Black Power (which Dad has successfully road-tested for a few days prior) caught fire in the hearts of "black" Mississippians -- and in screaming headlines and broadcasts in "white" news media outlets. At these meetings, Ture would throw it down the call for "Black Power!" like a gauntlet, and SCLC dispatched the hell-raising Williams to pick it up and fling it back in the form of "Freedom Now!"
TURE AND KING
Actually, Dr. King was among those who initially accepted Ture's challenge, but it appears that his associates felt that it was unseemly for him to respond directly to the young whipper-snapper Ture, thus implicitly according him the status of an equal.
Despite the caution of Dr. King's aides, the two men became very close during this march. Indeed, a heartbroken Ture cried openly at a news conference following Dr. King's assassination two years later, on April 4, 1968.
THINGS FALL APART
At the nitely meetings during the "March Against Fear," the dueling slogans would quickly be taken up by partisans on the platform and in the crowd, raising the physical, political and cultural temperature of these meetings to heights that were unprecedented in the modern civil-rights movement.
Indeed, things would never be the same again, and the psychological, political and class cleavages that these slogans represented would never really be healed. For example, according to their memoirs, former SNCC chairman John Lewis and Andrew Young never forgave Dada and Ture for their supposed departure from the movement's original tactic of nonviolence and ideal of a "beloved community."
ATLANTIC CITY BIRTH
In his speech, Ture distills the direction that SNCC had begun taking since the traitorous betrayal of the ingenious and courageous challenge of the SNCC-birthed Mississippi Freedom Democratic party (MFDP) to the seating of the racist, lily-"white" regular state party at the Democratic National Convention at Atlantic City in August 1964, which Ture and others correctly locate as the genesis of the consciousness that would later burst forth as Black Power.
In 1967, Ture would embrace pan-Africanism and resettle at Conakry, Guinea, in West Africa. In the early 1970s, he helped found the All-African People's Revolutionary Party (AAPRP), which seeks "the total liberation and unification of Africa under Scientific Socialism." He died at Conakry on Nov. 15, 1998.

Interview with Malcolm X by an unidentified ABC News correspondent, place and date not provided by the source. At the time, Malcolm X was the national representative and minister of Muhammad's Mosque No. 7, New York, of Elijah Muhammad's "race"-centered, separatist Nation of Islam (NOI). It appears that the interview was conducted at an outdoor rally sponsored by Mosque No. 7, at Harlem or Brooklyn, in the spring or summer of 1962 or 1963.
Malcolm X broke with the NOI on March 8, 1964, and established the black nationalist Muslim Mosque, Inc. (MMI), which soon embraced traditional Sunni Islam. In mid-April, he made the obligatory "hajj," or religious pilgrimage, to the Muslim holy cities of Mecca and Medina, Saudi Arabia, where he rejected "race"-based judgments. During most of May, he visited seven North and West African nations, after which he rejected territorial separation and mass emigration to Africa as solutions, but retained his belief in some form of African American self-determination. While at Accra, Ghana, he founded a non-religious, pan-Africanist group with "black" expatriates from the U. S., and the Caribbean. The U. S. branch of this group was established at Harlem, New York, as the Organization of Afro-American Unity (OAAU) at a public rally on June 28.
On Feb. 21, 1965, Malcolm X was assassinated by a five-man NOI "special squad" from the Newark and Paterson, N. J., mosques, according to the 1977 testimony of one of his killers.

Malcolm X being interviewed by an unidentified ABC News reporter following a news conference in the colorful Tapestry suite of the Park Sheraton Hotel, New York City, March 12, 1964.
Malcolm X called the news briefing to announce the formation of the Muslim Mosque, Inc. (MMI), which he was the president of. The MMI was a black nationalist group, which sought political, economic and social self-determination for "black" communities.
Four days earlier, he had broken with Elijah Muhammad's religiously sectarian, politically inert Nation of Islam (NOI), beginning the uncertain, painful but eventually liberating process of becoming his own man.
Although the MMI used a version of the NOI's Islam as its "religious base" to provide "the spiritual force necessary to rid our people of the vices that destroy the moral fiber of our community," it was open to all "black" people, regardless of their religious, or nonreligious, beliefs.
However, following Malcolm X's hajj, or religious pilgrimage, to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina, Saudi Arabia, in late April 1964, he rejected the NOI's version of Islam and the MMI became a Sunni Islamic group, identified with the broader Muslim world.
Among those in attendance at the news conference was the neo-Garveyite "Professer" Lewis H. Michaux, the impish, fez-wearing proprietor of Harlem's famed National African Memorial Book Store, located on 7th Avenue a few doors north of 125th Street, who was a mentor and strong supporter of Malcolm X. He can be seen at 00.33.

Malcolm X Advocates Black Guerrilla Army In the South From: pauldarwinlee | April 21, 2009 | 3,903 views Loading...NBC News interviews Malcolm X, then chairman of the pan-Africanist Organization of Afro-American Unity (OAAU), at his home, 23-11 97th St., East Elmhurst, Queens, N. Y., July 1, 1964.
Malcolm X answers a question about his offer to James Forman, executive secretary of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), to provide "self-defense units" to protect "black" Mississippians being threatened and attacked by "white" racists.
While Malcolm X hoped to prod the federal government to act, he was NOT bluffing. One of his top aides had Special Forces training and several of his followers had offered to go.
However, only two days after this interview, Malcolm X was jumped in front of his home by several knife-wielding members of Elijah Muhammad's Nation of Islam (NOI), whereupon Malcolm X's followers directed their efforts towards protecting HIM.
Behind Malcolm X is a drawing of Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, the president of Ghana, which was probably given to him by African American artist Herman (Kofi) Bailey, Jr., when Malcolm X visited that West African nation from May 10-17, 1964.
Three days earlier, on June 28, Malcolm X announced the founding of the New York branch of the OAAU, a secular group that sought to create a "United Black Front" and unite "black" people in the West with their African cousins. Malcolm X and a group of Western black expatriates established the OAAU during his visit to Ghana. The New York branch was headquartered at Suite 128, Hotel Theresa, 2090 7th Ave., at 125th Street, Harlem.
The OAAU was founded in part because Malcolm X wanted to offer a militant secular alternative to the Muslim Mosque, Inc., the faith-based group he formed after his break with Elijah Muhammad's "black"-centered, politically conservative NOI on March 8, 1964. OAAU members were not required to embrace Islam; its platform was black nationalist and its mission was to fight for freedom "by any means necessary."
After being prevented by Mr. Muhammad from joining or supporting the civil-rights movement for 12 years, Malcolm X was anxious to offer an alternative to what he considered the movement's unrealistic goal of "racial" integration and its "disarming" philosophy of nonviolence.
As a black nationalist, he believed that African Americans would find security in self-determination and self-defense -- armed, if necessary -- against the attacks of "white" racists, whether vigilantes clad in white sheets like the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) or police officers clad in blue.
However, most of the movement's mainstream leaders remained wary of Malcolm X, who was portrayed by the news media as an advocate of indiscriminate hatred of and violence against "whites," despite his break with the NOI and his rejection of its racism during his "hajj," or religious pilgrimage, to the Muslim holy cities of Mecca and Media in late April 1964.
Malcolm X wanted to demonstrate his sincerity and offer practical assistance to the civil-rights movement, whose goals of desegregation (not integration) and voter registration (as independents rather than Democrats) he shared.
On June 30, 1964, he departed for a rare visit to his hometown of Omaha, Neb., but he asked his wife, Betty Shabazz, to call Western Union (WU) to send a telegram (a message carried via radio waves) to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC).
Her call was intercepted by the FBI, which had placed a wiretap on their phone on June 3, 1964 ([name withheld by FBI, but "wife"] call to Western Union, June 30, 1964, 10:55 a. m., Malcolm X Little Elsur [Electronic Surveillance] log, New York FBI sub-file 105-8999-1, serial 28).
Dr. King was engaged in a particularly difficult campaign to challenge the segregation, or forced separation, of the "races" at St. Augustine, Fla., which was met by coordinated vigilante and police violence. Malcolm X's telegram stated:
"WE HAVE BEEN WITNESSING WITH GREAT CONCERN THE VICIOUS ATTACKS BY THE WHITE RACES [racists] AGAINST OUR POOR DEFENSELESS PEOPLE THERE IN ST AUGUSTINE. IF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WILL NOT SEND TROOPS TO YOUR AID, JUST SAY THE WORD AND WE WILL IMMEDIATELY DISPATCH SOME OF OUR BROTHERS THERE TO ORGANIZE SELF DEFENSE UNITS AMONG OUR PEOPLE AND THE KLU [sic] KLUX KLAN WILL THEN RECEIVE A TASTE OF ITS OWN MEDICINE.

Words of Wisdom from other people:
Like I said....get a grip on reality....YOUR KIND, MY KIND, all are being screwed, not because of skin color, but for lack of intelligence and the ability to see beyond skin color.
The Rich get richer and the poor suffer and die...ALL SKIN COLORS!!
The problem here is every one thinks they are something other than what they truly are...even you with your passed down the line, AGE 'OLDE' fake analytical reasoning in order to 'WHITE WASH' the TRUTH!!!!
Give me a break with the hyperbole....please!!!!
we're on the same page with this...Bfs are still constantly being trashed in the media...young Bfs are being portrayed in mainstream media as gold diggers, not marriage material..and too many of our sons are being indocrinated by this poison.
Of course. If you read through this posts. Camile says the media was used to upstage WM image. However the same has been done to WW as well. Therefore WW just like WM will both have upstanding images in society and this how she will be constantly viewed compared to other women while the media continues to trash BW's image.
Just as many of our women have been indoctrinate to believe their men where players, goons, hood dudes, etc. You have both sexes who carry negative stereotypes embracing each other.
Why thank you. I would like to encourage even more unity for us . I am even willing, at some point to call a truce to our people who are on the sideline. It may take some time, and even me being a little more humbled when I call the truce. But, I really maybe willing to help bring more of us, on the same side as a united front, but this will take some time:)
You make a good point Nzingha!!
Keep posting your positive comments, because some of us BW & BM love your posts! Well, I know I do!!!
My point is this, us addressing the facts between skin color and UV rays isn't racist nor Afrocentric. You seem to get all defensive when we bring this subject up. UV rays, skin color and Melanin all happen to go hand in hand. No one is going to sugar coat because you can't handle the facts. As I said, Dark skin is a defense mechanism for direct DNA damage from UV rays which are potentially dangerous to human skin. Therefore the odds of BLACK PEOPLE getting skin cancer is very slim. It wouldn't make sense for humans to originate in Africa just to drop dead from the Sun.
I am supporting science, no discrediting it. "white skin is sensitive to uV rays"? So is all skin. Lighter skin moreso.
So what is your point? Fact is, black people get skin cancer.
Great Post!!http://blackawakening.org/inde x.php
"I have to disagree, albeit respectfully. I personally do not believe you can call yourself a true advocate for the plight of your people while you are busy mixing and marrying with the race of people who have sought to oppress you or with races who are exploiting you.
Am I saying that there are no "good" people of other races? Not at all! I have many friends of different races---as a matter of fact, most of my best friends are not even black people. But that does not mean that I need to mix and marry with them and have children? How can I advocate "black power", how can I advocate the upliftment of my people, how can I advocate the construction of a strong black community when I have a white woman on my arm? Its sort of hypocritical. If you want to marry a white woman, fine, but when you try to tell black people about uplifitng themselves they will refuse to hear you.
Admixture is a tricky thing. Amongst African-Americans, most of us have some white admixture. But because of our dominant genes (and the fact that admixture was not as crazy as it was in, say, Brazil) most of us retain our features. But our appearance and physical features---aren't these inherently apart of our identity, who we are as black people? I mean, our skin color and facial features and hair textures...these are the very emblems of blackness that serve as scarlet letters in the eyes of our white oppressors. We do not necessarily need to adhere to the white definition of "black" but we should accept those who have noticeable strains of non-black admixture...not simply because it is most of us, because it is largely weak. But I will continue to say, is it really reasonable to consider Malcolm Gladwell and Eddie Murphy as apart of the same race? After all Malcolm Gladwell has a bit of black admixture but with his hair cut short he can pass for white easily. Eddie Murphy...his blackness is undeniable. Deciding these lines will always be a tricky and difficult endeavor, but we must stress that a certain exclusivity must come with blackness. Notice how whites, Asians, Hispanics...everyone practices a form of exclusivity to solidify their ethnic and racial solidarity. But with us blacks, its just whatever...we refuse to draw lines. If you have one drop, you're in. We must draw lines to firmly establish our race.
I mean, if one can have blonde hair, blue eyes, a straight nose, and otherwise Nordic features...but because their great-great-great grandfather was black then they are one of us---that says a lot about our lack of boundaries and henceforth lack of solidarity.
It is just my own opinion.
I'll check on that site bro, and hopefully you and other brothers and sisters will come to the site i'm building, which will be ready soon....;)
"To get away from this colonial racist system america, the black community needs to decolonize" So true! The world needs to decolonize and we need to over through the economic system that requires empirialism and colonization.

It is important that we teach our daughters to stay away from destructive men who clearly have no future and want to play the field, also those of us with sons must not encourage our sons to be players, we should forbid our children from gravitating towards such destructive nonsense, and if they fail to listen there should be consequences.
All this has to be drummed into them from their early teens before they start to rebel, once they get over the rebellious stage and reach their early twenties, your teachings should start to kick in!
We must teach them what is negative and positive concerning our so-called culture, and that there is more to being black than wearing bling and owning a fat ride, these things are worthless.
We clearly need a culture change, as the one we have now is actually destroying anything good those blacks of the past fought for, in-fact I actually struggle to find anything good in popular black culture these days, in-fact we have a back to front culture...If you look at it carefully, you will see that whatever is bad is classed as good in our culture and whatever is good is bad...Even the word bad means good in black culture, that says it all...
It may be too late for the adults to change, but we can make a difference for our children, we need to break the cycle of poverty and uselessness and teach our children to love each other...The culture of being a player, gangster or a b___ must stop as it is an evil culture, it hasn't made blacks look smart at all.
I for one will be sending my children to the best schools, and have bank accounts ready for my kids education, i am currently studying a Masters Degree so will definitely be using this fact as a motivator for them to go into higher education...Even if I am not with the mother when they get older, I will still be influencing my daughters on many issues especially what men they date, and will vet their boyfriends... If they fail to take my advise they can't come running to daddy when things screw-up...Tough love...This is what we need to start doing to these kids before it is too late and we get another flop generation of blacks!
Don't you see they are both one and the same? Women wants equal voice in the decision making process, so that when she cedes to her husband she knows he is going to make the best decision based on her input and his own beliefs. She wants him to lead. She wants his to be the final decision, but she wants to know that she has been heard.
Baracks is the final voice in his relationship and his home. Long before he became the president he discussed everything with Michelle. He wanted to hear what she thought and what she had to say, then it was left to him to decide what they were going to do. He was the leader and where he lead she joyfully and trustingly followed him. She helped him to realize his visions and dreams. She was not happy about his decision to run for the Presidency, but he decided it was what was best and she followed because he had conviction and a plan. He does not fear her input or intelligence. He expected it and welcomes it.
He is a man that is comfortable in his manhood and knows his value and strengths. A man that wanted the same qualities in his wife and never feels he is in competition with her because she has an opinion. He knows whatever decision he makes she will back his play.
I hear you sis, Our culture is partly to blame, which is built off what we see on TV, I had no idea sisters were being taught professional black men do not want them and find that ludicrous.
It is time that our people stop listening to the media and following what is on TV, it is a well known fact that the TV, exaggerates everything deliberately, and this is to keep the viewers interested.
There was a psychological study done many years ago which had proved that Black people were the most easily influenced when it came to the media...At the time I was upset reading it but now I fully understand what it meant that is where we get our useless negative, culture from, in-fact there was a book written concerning the subject called "psychology and television"...
Anyone teaching their daughter that professional men will not want them should take some parenting classes, this is a mild form of psychological abuse, I could never see myself being cruel enough to bring my daughters up thinking, no decent man will want them, a parent should teach their child that they deserve the best and must be the best they can to deserve it.
And we as blacks must learn to disregard what we see in the media, the TV is the most dangerous weapon ever built, it can affect the mind and manipulate people to behave and think a certain way, it can and is often used in Social Engineering...It is starting to sound like there is a drive to keep professional black people from marrying each other.
There is a you tube documentary that explains the black community has been used and manipulated
at every step of the way since the Civil Rights, I will look for it and post the link, it is very informative but disturbing...The reason for most of the madness in our community is that we western blacks do not have a proper, deep rooted culture to give our people direction and guidelines to follow, so we do anything and everything at the same time we look like lost sheep, the fact that we take advice from the TV concerning our own people says it all...
Professional black men and professional back women are supposed to be the ideal match, however they are the least likely to date each other, there is something wrong here!
I see this everyday. I work with elementary kids. I ask them, what do you want to do when you get older?
Of course a few of them say, I want to go to college. But, they are the kids that have parental involvement.
The others will say, I want to be a rapper, a football player. These are the kids that literally fail everything and their report cards come back signed with no note asking to speak to the teacher or anything. The teacher will request a conference, and they don't even show up.
These are the same kids that will do the "jerk" the "dougie" and chant rap songs all day...But they can barely read or do math.These kids are being brainwashed by the media.
I try my best to get through to these kids because I know how they will be when they get older. But, these kids need their parents. The tv is raising them.
I saw a parent pull up in his Lexus with huge rims, music blasting, smoking a black-n-mild with his pants sagging...I just shook my head...
-What (from Richmond, VA)
WOW!!! It never ceases to amaze me how much they hide from us!
Excellent discovery....We have a black owned shopping channel, DAMN!!!
I wonder what other treasures we have hidden around the world that we are being told we are not capable of setting up and running.
It goes to show that all the seeds of self sufficiency are already there they just need to be aware of each others existence and black nationalism maybe even closer than we think.
These House negroes knocking about here denying that we even have businesses, what fools they are who are also completely afraid to let go of the white mans apron strings as they feel weak and hopless themselves, but we are not proposing that blacks should move into the hills and live off the land far away from whites.
just that we are able to stand on our own two feet if the white man turned against us.
I will be making my donations to the black organisation myself soon and will keep patronizing them as long as I can.
Lay the wood to that rascal. Machiavelli is seen by many to be satan incarnate.
Yes, lets! Lets all become immoral, deceitful, materialistic with no regard for the welfare of others and the rules of the law. Thats the BEST way to rebuild the black community.
Good wholesome family values!
Honestly...you make it SO easy.
People yap about Willie Lynch teaching slave masters how to subdue slaves. That is the biggest lie of the 20th century. Every since America was discovered or colonized, Machiavelli was the bases of everything from politics, military strategy, foreign or domestic policy and the treatment of slaves.
Today, america still use Machiavellian ideology.. We can see it in the Iraq-s war. Machiavelli said one must eliminate the leaders in case the people become disenchanted, they can not go back to the old administration. We killed Saddam, his sons and anyone in authority.
Hmmmm sounds familiar? Kennedy's, Malcolm and Martin, huh?
You're 100% correct.
Knowledge, these are the type of Black men who are the greatest threat to the White man's system. It isn't the thugs, gangsters, or drug dealers that the White man fears, because he knows these men are destructive to our community and will drive it into the ground.
The White man's greatest nightmare are men like Isadore Banks and Frank Morris. Isadore Banks was buying up land in Arkansas and land ownership = power and on top of that, he was employing other Blacks and providing services to his community like electricity.
To the White man, men like Banks are a great threat, because men like this can uplift our people and overthrow White supremacy. The White man doesn't care about the ballers and thugs, because he knows they are too stupid to pose a threat to him. But he does not want good Black men with Black women so he uses his BET, VH1, and MTV to shove Nelly, 50 Cent, and Lil Wayne down the throats of these young Black women while Black men like Frank Morris and Isadore Banks are de-emphasized.
I'm already writing one book for the Black community, and I think I could write a second one just based on the dynamic between Black men and women and why these Black women take bad Black men over the good ones. I think I can write a 200 page book on this one idea, and this is totally different from the book I'm currently writing.
Note by Me: I don't agree with Kastha bashing of AAW, but he's right on most of the previous post (except for the lie of BW mostly going out with bad BM). Everyone knows that a savage or a thug is not real threat to the white supremacist system. The white supremacists laugh at them since they make them money from them (or the nihilists) promoting poison against their own race. The establisment hates a BM and a BW doing the right thing and contributing to their community in real ways of social uplift.
Can you believe the Anderson couple has actually received death threats because of their decision to buy from only Black businesses? Can you believe that? The wife said before her church at the end of the video that they've received hate mail and threats because of this.
This just goes to show all these house negroes here on Topix that nothing has changed between Blacks and Whites, they are happy to be "integrated" with us now because they get the $1 trillion per year the Black community generates and if Blacks start buying from each other Whites and other races will lose billions.
I was suspicious when I first saw this couple being featured on MSNBC because I know the Whites and Jews own this television network and they don't want Black unity, but near the end of the video it all made since, they basically put them on TV so that they could turn around and accuse them of racism.
Nothing scares the White man more than Blacks being unified, he loves it when we kill and fight each other, but he gets scared as sh*t the moment Black folks try to break their dependency on him.
A racist white man on this very site has already admitted to me that the biggest fear whites have is black social mobility!!!...This explains why white people will come on a site such as this and discourage us from supporting each other, however it makes me even more determined to achieve this, the same whites will then turn around and call us useless negroes who cannot achieve anything, and some black fools join in with them.
Throughout history they have destroyed all black attempts to become socially mobile and even discredit or kill our leaders who dared suggest we do such a thing, remember what the KKK did to TULSA a shinning example of black Nationalism?
They are aware that we excell very fast as a people if they step aside.
Do you know we have gone from lynchings in 1981 to the presidency in 2009?....Barely thirty years, we are a potential threat to white supremacy and that is why the Institutionalised racism was set up in the first place if you study the history of it, even the KKK was set up to stop blacks from taking over the South and again after world war one to control the numbers of blacks in the country, but I see there are some boot licking, tap dancing house negroes here who fail to understand these things and side with racists while the racists turn around laughing at them.
C/S. IF we could come together and stop pointing the finger at everyone else but ourselves we may come to an understanding. It is a perpetrating cycle that affects everyone because we refuse to take responsibility for our actions.Black Women are not going extinct and never will. We need to get together as a people and deal with the issues instead of runnning to other races.
It is easy for BM to say that BW are the root of all problems in the black community.
It is also easy for BW to say that BM are the root of all problems in the black community.
This solves nothing. We are too busy blaming and not solving.
BM and BW need to come together to come up with progressive and realistic solutions to help our community.
We need our own businesses to employ our people.
I am quoting this off the top of my head but I believe it
1 in every 10 asians owns a business. 1 in every 20 white people owns a business. 1 in every 34 hispanics own a business. 1 in every 101 black person owns a business!!
If we can get our unemployment rate down and encourage education, less of our people have to resort to gang banging and dealing to stay alive. These gang bangers raise kids that grow up in this environment and some don't break the cycle. It just repeats itself.
WE need more positive role models for our children. When 3rd graders are chanting the lyrics to young jeezy instead of learning their multiplication tables it is easy to blame the kid. But where are they learning this from? Thier parents! They are allowing the media to unconsciously brainwash them into thinking this is acceptable behavior.
I could go on and on, but I'm going to end this here. I'm hungry lol.
-What (from Richmond, VA)
"...The social philosophy of black nationalism only means that we have to get together and remove the evils, the vices, alcoholism, drug addiction, and other evils that are destroying the moral fiber of our community. We our selves have to lift the level of our community, the standard of our community to a higher level, make our own society beautiful so that we will be satisfied in our own social circles and won't be running around here trying to knock our way into a social circle where we're not wanted.
So I say, in spreading a gospel such as black nationalism, it is not designed to make the black man re-evaluate the white man -- you know him already -- but to make the black man re-evaluate himself. Don't change the white man's mind -- you can't change his mind, and that whole thing about appealing to the moral conscience of America -- America's conscience is bankrupt. She lost all conscience a long time ago. Uncle Sam has no conscience.
They don't know what morals are. They don't try and eliminate an evil because it's evil, or because it's illegal, or because it's immoral; they eliminate it only when it threatens their existence. So you're wasting your time appealing to the moral conscience of a bankrupt man like Uncle Sam. If he had a conscience, he'd straighten this thing out with no more pressure being put upon him. So it is not necessary to change the white man's mind.
We have to change our own mind. You can't change his mind about us. We've got to change our own minds about each other. We have to see each other with new eyes. We have to see each other as brothers and sisters. We have to come together with warmth so we can develop unity and harmony that's necessary to get this problem solved ourselves. How can we do this? How can we avoid jealousy? How can we avoid the suspicion and the divisions that exist in the community? I'll tell you how..... Join any organization that has a gospel that's for the uplift of the black man. And when you get into it and see them pussyfooting or compromising, pull out of it because that's not black nationalism. We'll find another one.
And in this manner, the organizations will increase in number and in quantity and in quality, and by August, it is then our intention to have a black nationalist convention which will consist of delegates from all over the country who are interested in the political, economic and social philosophy of black nationalism. After these delegates convene, we will hold a seminar; we will hold discussions; we will listen to everyone. We want to hear new ideas and new solutions and new answers. And at that time, if we see fit then to form a black nationalist party, we'll form a black nationalist party...Let me explain what I mean. A segregated district or community is a community in which people live, but outsiders control the politics and the economy of that community. They never refer to the white section as a segregated community. It's the all-Negro section that's a segregated community. Why? The white man controls his own school, his own bank, his own economy, his own politics, his own everything, his own community; but he also controls yours. When you're under someone else's control, you're segregated. They'll always give you the lowest or the worst that there is to offer, but it doesn't mean you're segregated just because you have your own. You've got to control your own. Just like the white man has control of his, you need to control yours..."
Hi sis, you are partialy right with this one, we as black people did integrate with white folks fairly quick and fought for integration as soon as we got off the windrush in 1948 after the second world war.
Hi Rev. Just want to ask your opinion on something a friend and I were discussing the other day. We were talking about the very topic of this thread, essentially, and why so many blacks are reluctant to support black businesses, or even donate blood. Anyway, my friend said that the biggest mistake West Indians made, when we came to this country, was that we integrated into British society too quickly, too busy trying to be accepted, and now we are paying the price. I happen to agree, and think we should have done as the Indians and Asians did. What do you think? Do you believe we would be in a better position now had we kept ourselves to ourselves?
The thing is we didn't have anything else in place to aid us as we had practically no money and barely anywhere to live when we first arrived here, there was plenty demenial work available but our grandparents first clashed with the natives over accommodation which lasted pretty much for the next twenty years and we ended up living bunched together in innercity areas like London,Birmingham, Manchester and liverpool.
We were largely excluded from much of the social and economic life around us, this was our best oportunity for Black nationalism in Britain, However we began to fight for integration just like the blacks did in America (oportunity missed).
We did bring with us some institutions of our own though like our style of churches, and a co-operative method of saving called the 'pardner' system, But At the same time, we began to participate in institutions to which we did have access, e.g: trade unions, local councils, and professional and staff associations rather than formulate our own, we fought to join in with white society at the detriment of our own.
Every other race of people came here to formulate and advance their people, we as blacks always seem to be in a hurry to be integrated with whites and this always proves to be our down fall.
Personally I think many of us blacks lack any self respect, self worth, self value and pride (we do not value anything from blacks)which clearly is a by-product of slavery as these were the very principles that were beaten out of us in slavery so we would accept our new position of being lower than pigs and horses.
This beleif is passed from generation to generation via our silently destructive culture, which has destroyed our confidence as people and causes us to see ourselves as inferior to others subconciously.
However, each and everyone can combat this way of thinking.
We have to change the negative selfish way we think about ourselves and our people.
We stop focusing on what is going wrong in our communities and focus on what is going right, celebrate good parenting, good black marriages or relationships, good black music, black business, celebrate our bright youths, encourage our youths to lust for education, celebrate black babies being born and so on. We focus on the negative, we will become more and more negative this is a natural phenomenon that we are a victim of.
To see change we have to Revolutionise the way we think, because the way we think now is barely working wonders for us.
Excellent discovery....We have a black owned shopping channel, D____!!!
I wonder what other treasures we have hidden around the world that we are being told we are not capable of setting up and running.
It goes to show that all the seeds of self sufficiency are already there they just need to be aware of each others existence and black nationalism maybe even closer than we think.

I will be making my donations to the black organisation myself soon and will keep patronizing them as long as I can.
I value education very much, and I believe alot of other blacks do too. I believe when a black man or woman gets an education they should still be themselves. Alot of black men and women who become wealthy and start to mingle with different nationalities such as white they somehow change. Meaning they start to sound like somebody they are not. Acting white to me means you are trying to sound and dress like someone you are not and that to me is becoming white washed. If you came from the hood and you are now wealthy why change yourself to fit in with a bunch of people who would care less about you if you weren't wealthy. Thats just my personal opinion.
To me acting white means to completely forget were you come from. To leave your real friends and partner behind. To try and talk different to fit in. Dressing different to fit in. That is what is considered acting white to me. I have friends of different nationality but Im not trying to act or dress like them. I will never change myself to fit in with a group of people.
Information from Refined:
Mansa Equity Partners, Inc. draws its name from the medieval-era Moorish title “mansa” meaning “king of kings” or “emperor”. Mansa Kankou Musa – most widely known as Mansa Musa -- was the 10th Mansa of the Mali Empire during its zenith in the 14th century. He reigned from 1312 to 1337. Timbuktu, the empire’s commercial capital, dominated the gold and salt trade as the hub for the caravans which connected the Mediterranean economies north of the city with the rich gold and salt mines south of the city. Similarly, Timbuktu was the center of trade for silks and spices from Arabia and The East and for agricultural products from the Atlantic coastal regions from the west. To support the thriving commercial economy, Timbuktu became home to a well developed center for banking and trade finance with corresponding branches as far north as Al-Andaluz (Andalucia,Spain) and as far east as Cairo. Also well documented is Mansa Musa’s establishment of a great university and library at Sankore in Timbuktu. The university became the region’s primary center of learning for scholars of all faiths for more than a century. Mansa Musa is most remembered today for his opulent display of wealth and civility. On his famous journey to Arabia in 1324, he and his court flooded Cairo with so much gold that the gold market was depressed for ten years after his departure. Other records indicate that Mansa Musa commissioned a fleet of ships to explore the Great Sea to the West (the Atlantic). Artifacts found in Mexico, Panama and Colombia suggests that some of these ships found their way to the New World more than a century before Columbus. Since the middle ages, the name Mansa Musa and the city of Timbuktu have become synonymous with wealth, scholarship, faith and discovery.
Mansa Equity Partners, Inc. was founded in 2004 by its Chairman and CEO Ruben Jose King-Shaw Jr., a dual citizen of the United States of America and the Republic of Panama. Since its founding, the firm has focused on the intersection of health care policy, clinical research, technological development and demographic trends to discover extraordinary investment opportunities in the healthcare industry. Like the man for whom the firm is named, Mansa Equity Partners, Inc, is committed to the cause of scholarship and economic development. Through its Corporate Affairs office, the firm funds community-based initiatives in education and healthcare throughout the world.
An African emperor who ruled Mali in the 14th century discovered America nearly 200 years before Christopher Columbus, according to a book to be launched this month.
Abubakari II ruled what was arguably the richest and largest empire on earth - covering nearly all of West Africa.
There are probably more white scholars who say Africans where in The Americas before Columbus. Plus there is even more documentation by the Arabs. If you visit an Islam site, they even have timeline where it states West Africans traveled across the Atlantic ocean during the 13th Century.
I'm not surprised. A few years ago two white Harvard history proffessors stated that most of the history books are wrong and that if the truth were to be told in the worlds history books in essence what you would have would be black history and everyone elses history would be nothing but a mere footnote compared to the history of the blacks. This came from two white Harvard history professors. They stated that the history books are corrupted and very exclusive when it comes to the truth of the accomplishments of the black race in the world.
I'm sure this admission by these two white Harvard prof's pissed off quite a few people.
This post is directed to the man who posted the first post and all of the other poor souls that fed into it :)
My heart breaks for so many of you that feel this way about black women. You have disrespected your mothers, sisters, grandmothers and so on. Please dont forget that until the day you die....you yourelf are black. Dont make BLANKET statements abour BLACK WOMEN because all black women do not behave the way you described. I personally believe it goes back to upbringing. We must stop tearing each other down. There are other races of women: black, white etc. that behave this way.
I am a successful, beautiful black woman. Told by many I resemble Halle Berry and Nia Long (just to give you a visual of my looks). I am married to a wonderful, successful black man. I encourage my husband, I am his biggest fan. I am happy, when I can make him smile. I dont fuss at my husband, I dont nag him....i love him with every grain of my soul. We are BFF's and our relationship is envied by others. It is all about finding your soul mate, but stop putting your race down, stop disrespecting the women in your family. Yes, there are women that behave the way you described, but NOT ALL. One day you may have a daughter, if you dont already, and she will have BLACK blood running through her veins....what will you tell her about this post when she reads your feelings about black women one day? You will be, in essence, speaking negatively about your own daughter. Telling her not to love herself, and to be ashamed that she is a black or partially black woman. She will not be able to disown that part of herself, and who says she will want to? I pity you.....
-Beautiful Black Woman

Sounds like a greattttttttttttttttttttt resolution to me :)
I co-sign, and wish that we would make it a new year resolution to stop bashing and start loving the other black person and getting this new year on the right foot ..lets look forward to the future and stop trying to take it away??
ME: Life is about to get a lot ROUGHER for the black nation if we don't learn some lessons REAL QUICK.

#2 -- a man who doesn't take care of his OWN, gets no respect from his women OR the MEN who know what a real man is and what a real man does
#3 -- a man who sleeps with the women of his oppressor, is his OWN worst enemy and perishes by his own hand (and foolishness).
#4 -- a man who does not appreciate the ones who were there for him, will wake up one day and NO ONE WILL BE THERE in his time of need. In other words, we will reap what we have sown
#5 -- any man who has to depend on ANOTHER MAN (or his enemy) for his basic needs will ALWAYS be oppressed and enslaved. (talking about JOBS, brother)
#6 -- The Universe (God) don't play, and is keeping score of all the players. If BM does not love, and support the ONLY women who have been there for us for the LAST 500 YEARS, we will pay a heavy Karmic price, make no mistake about it.
#7 -- the black woman is the black man's spiritual source and spiritual REDEMPTION and is necessary for the BM to keep himself from white oppression. The more the BM abandons the BW, the more bitter and dysfunctional she becomes, and the more black children are at risk. This is WHY the white system does its best to keep us divided and fighting each other -- so we will destroy each other.
Popique: JUST REMEMBER IN AFRICA , AFRICANS ARE KILLING AFRICANS FOR MANY REASONS AND NOT BECAUSE OF THE WHITE DEVILS BUT BECAUSE OF LACK OF UNITY.
ME: It was white enslavement, white imperialism, white colonialism, that destroyed African unity in the first place. The 500 years plus agenda of the white supremacists is to finish off the job they started: taking complete control of Africa's vast resources AND eliminating the African people.
It's the same forces (and games) that are at work in America's black communities. It is white supremacy, every day, all day long, make no mistake about it.
And unless the colonized African MAN and the slave-minded black man in America wake up to the game of DIVIDE AND CONQUER, we will face the same fate that the blacks in the movie "2012" faced: total extermination.
Popique: FOR EVERY UNCLE TOM THERE WILL BE A PERSON OF OTHERS RACES WILLING TO DIE FOR GODLY CAUSES. I KNOW AND HAVE EXPERIENCED IT B/4.
ME: Nobody's saying other races are bad, BUT they are handling their OWN business, looking out for their OWN interests, which is as it should be. NOBODY is going to look out for black folks, but black folks, so we must get off the tit of white dependency and learn how to DO FOR SELF. In the coming future, we will have no choice.
Read the book, "Trojan Horse: Death of a Dark Nation" by Anon (the links are posted on my page) and you will understand just how critical it is for black folks to get our COLLECTIVE act together if we want to survive the coming economic situation.
Always good to dialogue with a good brother. Thanks for posting your comments.
Black business people are not to be trusted? Oh really? And who got arrested for the biggest Ponzi scheme in history Tony? Was it not a White guy by the name of Bernard Madoff? And what about Enron? Ever heard of Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling?
I'm sure that statement about my not being well read in black history was an attempted insult. However,there are very few blacks that are "well read" in black history...yourself included. Anyone can look up black history facts on the internet and then pretend that they're black history scholars.
Be that as it may though but "MODERN HISTORY" has taught me not to do business with blacks. Black business people are not to be trusted and I could definitely cite you some glaring examples from my own experiences of doing business with black people.
Name one Black person that has committed fraud on the level of these guys, you won't find any. Here is your history lesson for the day Tony, the word "Ponzi" Scheme was named after a White guy, an Italian by the name of Charles Ponzi. See, White people invented these scams, yet you say Black business owners can't be trusted, you are full of sh*t. Whites are the ones who can't be trusted, and the history attests to that fact.
Tony, there are good and bad Black businesses, just like there are good and bad White businesses. I agree that you shouldn't do business with a Black person just because they're Black; if their service sucks then it just sucks.
But don't give up on all Black businesses, just seek out those which are noteworthy. And don't be afraid to leave negative feedback to Black business people that do a crappy job, if they really want to succeed, they will learn from your reviews.
A truly good business person understands that negative feedback is more valuable than positive feedback, because negative feedback tells you where you can improve. As much as I believe in Black unity and empowerment, if I only have two restaurants to choose from, a Black one and an Asian one, and the Asians provide better service, then I will eat at the Asian place. Blacks need to learn how to compete and offer top notch service.
brother, you said it all
which is a good reason not to live in all-white areas. Black folks are literally sitting ducks, and are too easily fooled by the surface friendliness and smiles but don't have a clue what is said or done behind closed doors
until a white folk is under pressure and pulls off their MASK
someone suggested that maybe the woman probably signed a card without thinking and found out she had a judgment or some other financial problem
then realized she had cooked her own sorry azz goose and wanted that card back.
bet it was a money related issue (or lack of money) that made her go snap, crackle and pop!
Brother, if you want to post this entire thing on another group, feel free.
I can't do it because i'm working on deadline (and shouldn't have stopped to write this blog but i couldn't help myself ..lol)
that goes for anybody who wants to re-post this, the links, the whole damn thing
this is all about sharing info...
brother, you spoke some truth on this topic.
yea, she knows what time it is and so do most whites who know they are benefiting from racism and that a black person is being unfairly penalized., yeah, they know and if pressed hard enough, will spit it out,
like Michael Richards (Seinfeld's Kramer) who told the black males in his audience, "At least I ain't a n*__r!"
and then will claim in the next breath, "I'm not a racist." lol
When she said black women are turning against us, again, that's the trick of a devil, because, nodoubt, they are telling BW the same damn thing about us
and it's like a rumor that somebody starts, telling Friend 1 that Friend 2 hates him, and telling Friend 2 that Friend 1 hates him,
and the next thing you know Friend 1 and Friend 2 are enemies and they HATE EACH OTHER
when ALL ALONG, it was that "somebody" who STARTED THE LIE, and told it so long that the LIE became a reality
Brother, BW are NOT joining WW, they like WW less than they like us! lol
BW are hurt and disappoiinted in us because AS MEN we have not stood up for them like we should have. Men are supposed to PROTECT their women, and not let ANYONE put them down or make money by calling them "ho*s" and "bit*ches"
tell u what, go into a Muslim country with that ho-bi*tch rap about their women and see what happens....
she was planting a POISON SEED in the BM's head, something that a lot of white females do, I know because i've HEARD it, and that's the last time they try that sh*t with me
And white males will plant that POISON SEED in the BW's head, telling her how bad BM are..
they've been running this MIND GAME for a long time, brother, don't fall for the hype. If BW didn't want us, wouldn't be so many black babies running around...lol
The bottom line is we are a people who has been placed in a pressure cooker for over 400 years, we are going to have problems with each other UNTIL we are willing to address those problems, come hell what may, until we figure this sh___t out
but the LAST thing we want to do is listen to ANYTHING a white folk tells us about each other
I know BW love my black a___ (who wouldn't)
and I bet money you got a list of some that love u too
come on now...
-crammasters (Always dropping jewels like always)
older female relatives in my family confirmed this, and i have BW friends who said WM will tell them how BM are bad news, so it happens, believe that.
what is happening between BM and BW started during slavery, sis, and the example I gave nodoubt about "somebody" spreading lies about Friend 1 and Friend 2 and the next thing you know the two BEST friends are fighting and hating each other
AND DON'T EVEN KNOW WHY
and will swear that "somebody" who started the whole thing is their "friend." without understanding that they didn't start fighting until that "somebody" came into the picture
Until BM and BW are willing to put our weapons down and put our hurt feelings to the side and really examine and analyze and dissect this divide from a HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE nothing will change
our enemies are winning the war and we can't even agree as black people that we are IN a war - and that's why we are LOSING as a black community big time
when I checked, that show wasn't coming on, i'll keep an eye out for it (u know i love me some Jill Scott).
ME: I think I know what YHWH means but I'm not sure. could you define it for me?
No doubt, the BW is far from perfect and she also has much to answer for, BUT, we BM are the missing links in our communities and families.
We are the main ones going to prison (where we can't financially or emotionally support our women and children)
We are the main ones chasing (being caught) by non-black females who have NO interest OR concern about the black community, racism, OR white supremacy.
Since 70 percent of black kids live in single-female households, and these kids were NOT conceived through immaculate conception, BUT by sex with the Black man,
then I'd say we BM have more work to do if we intend to do right by our women and kids and communities..
did it ever occur to us that we are doing what they WANT us to do?
We let the (white) media goad us into fighting each other over some(false) bullsh___ THEY CREATED FOR US
Look at all the reality shows where the black person ALWAYS picks the white person? HAven’t we caught on to this MIND GAME SCAM that is designed to pit BM against BW?
Who CREATES these shows?
Who SCRIPTS these shows?
Who CONTROLS what is said in the “black” articles we fight about?
Who PAYS all these silly male and female negroes to come on TV and clown for the cameras?
Hasn’t anybody else noticed that the whites on white reality shows NEVER PICK A BLACK PERSON, But the black people ALWAYS PICK THE WHITE PERSON? Yet some folks are on this thread talking (crazy) about how this black dude with a wedge of wheat grass on his head has the “right” to like who he likes…
Does anybody believe this dude is looking for “true love” with a pack of pitiful, fame and money hungry groupies? Don’t we know these “couples” go their separate ways AFTER the cameras stop rolling (and the checks stop coming)?
Don’t we know he is being PAID to pick who they tell him to pick, the same way New York, Pepa, Chili, Flava Flav, Hot Sauce, Chicken Wing, BBQ Rib, and Mr. Catfish ALL PICKED the (white) folks those producers told them to pick…
instead of getting mad, we should be feeling sorry for these negroes who sell themselves for a TV show and a dollar, because they have NO regard for the POISONOUS images they are selling to black youth: WHITE IS SUPERIOR and NO RESPECT FOR SELF
crammasters, Hmmmmm, you know you’re probably ‘in for it’ now from the fellas…
But it is a shame that some black men have taken to, like you said, simply repeating what they see and or hear, because it’s popular? Calling black women gold diggers and whatnot, when the black males that complain of gold diggers don’t even possess that kind of money! Again, they are just regurgitating…
Damn shame what our minds have allowed to soak in at the hands of a race who doesn’t respect us in the first place…
I don’t get it Cramm, and I don’t think I ever will. How do so many black people defend, fight for and embrace the same people who stood on their backs for hundreds of years? I defy anyone to point me to a person of Jewish culture that lingers in groups and on websites who will deliberately disrespect his/her own to defend a german!! It’s not happenin!
Blacks were asking, begging, telling whites to ‘go away, leave us alone’ for YEARS! Now all of a sudden, whites want BLACK FLESH, yes I said it, they only want BLACK FLESH, and negroes run to whites like they have been waiting patiently all of their lives to be ‘accepted’ by those people?
crammasters, Great points brother, as ALWAYS…
I have to point out or ask one more thing to go along with you…
Why is it, when black people do these ‘looking for love’ type shows, they are NEVER as ‘classy’ as the “Bachelor’ or the ‘Bachelorette’?
These c___s caught up in this ‘flavor of love’/'what chilli wants’ BS should really stop and think about WHY they have to look like absolute fools, when the SAME producers, (white ofcourse), don’t require this of their own…
Crammasters refuting Esco73's women bashing:
@ Esco73 who said, “I think people are making too big a fuss about this.”
ME: I agree, but for a different reason. We should looking at the SOURCE of these nonsense reality shows, instead of bashing each other over the head about it. That’s if we are SANE and RATIONAL people
On the other hand, it is a big deal because the white media is using reality shows like this to turn non-thinking black males and females against each other, in other words, their PLAN IS WORKING.
Esco73 said: i can see why he didn’t really pick any sista’s.
ME: Again, who PICKED the sisters who appeared on the show? Did you pick them? Did CaliFemme? Did Norangel? Did SoularFlarez? Peep the GAME, brother…it’s all about controlling our images and the way BLACKS see each other….we got to start using our brains, folks…—
Esco73 said, “Sista’s are starting to look weak and tired. They’re under apprecative, over bitter, unsubmissive and complaining about anything and everything.”
ME: Are u serious, brother? what’s more “tired” than a BM with a mouthful of metal and a blonde Chia Pet on top of his head? Again, brother, the PLAN is working is YOU are judging real life sisters by what the white TV producers are showing you.
I don’t know where YOU grew up OR who raised you, but the sisters who raised me, the sisters who MARRIED my father, my brothers, uncles, nephews – and ME – are nowhere near “tired, unappreciative, or bitter.”
Know why, brother? Because WE respect, provide for, and protect our women. We MARRIED our women. We gave our shorties our LAST NAME.
after we degrade our women in music (calling them Bs and Hs) imitating them in movies, films, and comedy, and after we parade some 300 pound white female around like a prize, of course they don’t respect us, or feel like we respect them.
And brother, the WHOLE WORLD is watching as we clown like this, wondering what the hell is wrong with a BM who DOES NOT LIKE HIS OWN? Which is one reason, brother, the BM has to CONSTANTLY FIGHT to be respected, because it is CLEAR to the rest of the planet that ANY MAN who does NOT take care of his women and children DOES NOT DESERVE RESPECT. Any man who PUTS the females of his OPPRESSORS above the women that gave BIRTH to him, DOES NOT DESERVE RESPECT, and that is the bottom line…
The MEN are the ones who create the environment that shapes the character of the women, NOT the other way around. The same way the white female is shaped by the environment the white male created. The same way the Asian female is shaped by the environment the Asian male created.
The men are the LEADERS, the HEAD of the family and community. IF our women are out of order — then WE ARE OUT OF ORDER. Any community that has a lot of broken, and bitter females, the MEN are the most responsible for that bitterness. The white female is bitter because of the way white males treat them collectively. Now, if we are going to call ourselves “MEN” then we must accept the same responsibility that all men must accept.
we can’t be whining, dependent, living-off-mommma, or our girlfriend or some silly white female, then pound our chest about being a “man” It don’t work that way, brother…–
I realise everybody is responsible for their own actions/choices in life, and I know you're not downgrading black people. That wasn't what I meant. What I mean is, that there are issues in our community which we have to address. How can we build strong black families, and businesses if we keep running to other races all the time? As it is, we have well over 50% of British born black men, and 30% of British born black women in relationships with white people. Now, I have nothing against people being with who they want to be with, but over the last 10-15 years, I have seen less and less black couples around. I even hear some black people saying they wouldn't date a black person, I mean, what the hell is that about? How can you intentionally exclude your own when it comes to looking for a partner? That just reeks of self hatred to me. And of these relationships, come mixed race children, who 9 times out of 10, grow up and marry white people. Again, I have nothing against this, but the offspring of a mixed race person and a white person rarely identify with black culture, or the black experience at all.
I hate to bring up the media, but haven't you noticed on adverts, billboards, shows on telly, films, whenever there is a black person, 99 times out of 100, they are shown with a non-black partner, usually white? And have you noticed that they almost never show a black couple? When they do, the relationship is shown as dysfunctional, whereas an IR couple will be shown as idyllic and happy. But the crux is: Why do they not do this with other ethnic groups? Other races are shown in healthy relationships with each other, so why isn't ours? Now, call me a conspiracy theorist, whatever you like, but as far as I'm concerned, there is a sinister agenda behind this.
This is why I say we need to wake up and smell the coffee before it's too late. \
Note by Me: I don't agree with Elijah Muhammad (and other issues), but most of this video is accurate and relevant today.
Malcolm X Rare Canadian CBC TV Show 1965 Part 1
Malcolm X Rare Canadian CBC TV Show 1965 Part 2
The females who receive the spoils of the war (against the black family and black nation) understand their role in the scheme of things. And they will do whatever is necessary -- SLEEP WITH THE ENEMY, even marry and breed with the enemy -- if it will further the cause of their (white) nation.
That's what we (BM) do not understand
The white supremacists know we are ego-driven because they devasted our manhood and self-esteem. The BM is so flattered by the WW's attention (her white validation), and easy sexual favors, that he doesn't ask himself one important question:
Why does the white female (who is the co-conspirator of AND the MOTHER of the racist white man), who aids the WM in oppressing the black nation, pursue the BM?
BECAUSE once the BM becomes denatured, and is trained to prefer white flesh, he is COMPLETELY NEUTRALIZED, devoid of self respect, and will NEVER have the will or the courage to fight his oppression.
one more thing
For all the BM who claim the WW is easier to get along with and less demanding, let me clue you brothas to one thing
In my limited experience and observation, the white female's expectations of a BM are much lower than the ones she has for a WM. A WW is NEVER surprised that a BM does not have his sh___t together. She doesn't expect him to measure up to a WM. She won't tell you that, but of course, that's what she is thinking...It's too much trouble to hassle a BM, especially when you don't think he'll measure up anyway -- and if you're just going through a spell of jungle fever and plan on returning to your own community. That's why a WW might APPEAR to be easier to get along with than a BW, because it's easier just to let a BM do whatever, than to invest time and energy in a lost cause or a short term jungle love fix...
All this is just my opinion (not science). Not saying all IR couples are like this, but in my experience, MOST are hung up on race, skin color and racial (racist) stereotypes. But this is my personal litmus test for a GOOD or a BAD WOMAN:
A woman who does not hold you accountable for your sh___t does NOT HAVE YOUR BACK.
A woman who has low (or no) expectations of a man DOES NOT RESPECT THAT MAN.
A woman who does not check a man's azz once in a while, does NOT LOVE THAT MAN.
A GOOD WOMAN will tell you the truth, will want (and expect) you to be the best man you can be, and will HAVE YOUR BACK. (not talking about material things).
A GOOD WOMAN will lay some tough love on your a___ when necessary (we all need correction now and then). And the same goes for a GOOD MAN.
A GOOD PARENT loves a child by setting limits When a parent doesn't discipline, set limits, or offer correction; that's not love; that's INDIFFERENCE. When a woman (or man) can't be bothered, they don't love you, they're taking the EASY WAY OUT.
That's why I see so many BM, after they've been involved with a lot of WW, become MORE dysfunctional, more spoiled, and unable to deal with a sister, because they are used to getting away with murder with a WW who either couldn't handle him OR didn't care enough to set limits.
If you don't get where I'm coming from, let me give this example.
Try to imagine a black child in a classroom full of white students, and the white teacher says, "Don't worry about your grade, Johnny, I don't expect as much of you as I do the other students."
Is that a compliment or an insult?
While all these BW basher believe the hype that all BW have attitudes and our problems seem to be different from other races like children out of wed lock being abusive. The Media shows us everyday that white people have the same issues ever watch 16 and pregnant and snapped majority of the shows are about White Woman as a matter of fact White Woman and White Men lead by landslide on murdering thier spouse but BW are so vindictive according to the black woman bashers SMDH.
They belittle them and make them think no body wants them while the media has a different agenda. One thing blacks don't pay attention to is White America first priority is MONEY it comes first, while black care about appearance. Thier is a push to brainwash the on point college educated BW and BM on their side. Not just for dating but also to keep them from being so visible so they can inspire the blacks in the inner city to do something different.
While these bitter basher sit around trying to convice themselves and everybody else that we are no good the white race will continue to pick up the good ones and that includes BLACK WOMAN who bring revenue to white owned corportation.
While the black community is left with nothing but the same recycled bad stereotypes not enough on point people come back to hood to show young kids that they can be more than a rapper drug dealers but the drug dealers and rappers and whatever else are very present and visible and thats no accident because black are the only race targeted and put on spot light for problems that every person have.
Exactly!!! I couldn't have put this better myself. Damn baby girl you are far more intelligent than I thought. You should be an attorney. LOL Yes all blacks should be offended that white rejects know they can be welcomed with open arms within our communities. 98% of the time those whites are rejects and can't get a white person to date them. Had ww or wm who date blacks had been able to get someone of their own race then they more than likely would have never dated anybody in the black race. He obviously wanted a white woman first but settled for black women. He probably still can't get a white woman so he hate white women and now wants to bash them while praising those women who praise him.
BINGO! So the only reason you went to BW is because WW rejected you. So the reason you bash WW & date BW exclusively is because WW rejected you. I knew that there was something off about you & hence the reason I'm cautious of many of you WM & other BW should be cautious about you as well. If WW had gave you the time of day you would have never even been into BW you just like BW because you could not get a WW & BW paid you some attention. How sad!
My fellow BW, you should be OFFENDED by this. Once again, proving my point....
many whites who get rejected by their own kind RUN TO BLACKS BECAUSE THEY FEEL BLACKS WILL ACCEPT THEM WITH OPEN ARMS.
& sadly many do!
Again proving my other point.
If whites can spare a few of their own that they don't want, they will throw them to black folks...because they can "whiten up" the black race while getting rid of the trash they don't want!
LOL, You are crazy & delusional! I never said BW can only get rejects. The only WM who ever expressed interest in me were the top of the line attractive ones, with goods jobs, or good education. Usually Italians. But that's here nor there.
that is rude and that doesn't really sound like something a bw would say to me, but a bm or ww.'oh bw can only get rejects'
I never said BW can only get rejects STOP twisting my words. Top of the line women can get almost any man they want regardless of race. BUT! White rejects, without fail always run to blacks because you ASSUME blacks will take you in!
Lol! T/y babes & you are not the only one who told me I could be an attorney ;)
But yeah that is a good word you used he "Settled" for BW, not to say there is anything wrong with us because I usually get approached by all kinds of men but many of them are cream of the crop. Like I said men will be attracted top of the notch women regardless. However, any white or other non BP who only goes to blacks after being rejected by their own, blacks should be offended. I think whites figure "Oh I'm white so even if I'm rejected by my own blacks will accept me, because I'm white so why wouldn't they accept me".
once a rich/famous BM marries a WW (who is broke when he met her), and they divorce, the next man she gets is USUALLY -- if not always -- a WHITE MAN.
The list is long, but here's a few: Nicole Simpson (OJ's ex-wife) and Montel Williams' ex-stripper, ex-wife...
The white female -- once she gets the rich BM's loot, never looks back and NEVER marries/dates another BM. Why? Because she doesn't need a rich BM's loot anymore, and wants to rejoin respectable white society.
She will NEVER pull up a poor BM, like the rich BM pulled her up. She will NEVER marry a BM gardener, waiter, stripper, or high school dropout...
And you can be damn sure that if Tiger's wife divorces him
that will be the LAST BM she lays down with
which explains why there is so little black generational wealth
despite the HUNDREDS of rich BM and BW that have come and gone
and it explains why the black community is financially POORER than every community in America, including the illegal community
because INTELLIGENT, SELF-RESPECTING MEN enrich their own communties, not the communities of their oppressors
It is also proof that the white man uses his females to keep that black wealth
out of the hands of the next black generation
because even if that white female has children with that rich BM
those black kids will be white-identified and will marry white
because they will be white-identified, with a white female instilling values
and a missing BM father who is already white-identified
Just Keeping It Real Is..........B(L)ACK
Show me where that I stated that some whites DID not help BLACKS..........It will be IGNORANT on my part to say all WHITES.
I stated many times If WHITES did not INTERVENED in AFRICA How would AFRICA turn out..........by ITSELF. Please spare me the crap about Zimbabwe.....I HATE it when whites (most)forgets the CRIME committed by white man to a black CONTINENT in the PAST but all of sudden looks what happen in the PRESENT (BLACKS crime on whites).........
You are telling me if someone beat, rape, lynch,(think of the most horrible crime) you or your family that you are going to forget..........please be REAL about LIFE
AFRICA is still the wealthiest resource continent in the world after so much ROBBERY.....they did an episode on diamonds back in the 90's about how much the SOVIET UNION dig up (STOLE) from AFRICA.
Imagine this a warehouse with nothing but DIAMONDS and the SOviet officer said that this was nothing compare what is still out there.
The Robbery..........give me an example with proof that BLACKS commits serious CRIMES that lasted over 100 years on whites..........don't talk crap (opinions are just that OPINIONS).........show proof or evidence
I can go very DEEP when it comes to HISTORY....
Just Keeping it Real For..........ever
The problem these whites that come to converstions such as these have, is that they will always try and measure the cruelty in a way, that it always makes them look as if the actual historical truths of what they've done does not have an impact on the present day conditions of this society, and the very people they've oppressed!
Brother i want you to go through this article here, and you will be horrified at the amount of raping done to the average african and the continent, yet they will today contest the events of the past and try and throw the "personal responsibility tag unto the continent of africa and the africans here displaced throughout the amerikkka's, as if their past pillage and rape did nothing to effect today in the very 2009, they keep drumming over...lol!
I know now, that my mission was to get the word out, and even before i did this thread, it is showing that many conscious brothers and sisters have heeded the warning, and understood, and have taken some drastic steps towards Black Nationalism, i want you brothers and sisters to support and donate, and take action with this brother and sister here:
The Official EE Video
See that living off Black business is a wondrous sacrifice and has nothing to do with exclusion... it is about love, pride and intelligence. In 2009, we spent money in ways that can contribute to our community's improvement. We brought the issues facing Black business and the economic crises caused by the lack of Black-owned businesses in Black communities back into the national dialogue.
We conducted this experiment not just to give back to our community and increase awareness about the need for more Americans to support Black businesses. The experiment was first and foremost an academic exercise.
The goal is to bear out - with science, not rhetoric - the theory that leakage is the source of many socioeconomic problems for Black Americans living in underserved areas... and that uplifting and proactively supporting Black businesses can resolve these crises by restoring a sense of pride and hope in our culture, and infusing more of our own wealth back into the neighborhoods that need it the most.
We spent over $90K with Black businesses in 2009, over 90% of expenditures we made that year. Most went directly to underserved Black neighborhoods.
Everyone always reports on Black problems. We wanted people to start talking about Black solutions.
Thus, EE is not about exclusion. It is about accountability, fairness, respect and pride. It is strategy. It is common sense. It only makes sense that a community with as much buying power as ours should work together to use our talents and resources toward solving our community's problems.
^^Very Nice Find, I'm signed on as well, and plan on donating, i've been working with and patronizing black businesses, my whole life, just now we have to spread the word,me and my wife planning on working with the website design team with EE, now that i've found one.
There's a lot of things brothers and sisters don't know, or it is purposely hidden from them regarding black empowerment foundations and business, there is even an online black shopping channel, bet you all didn't know that huh?
You gotta research brothers and sisters and begin to get with the program, and support, uplift, and financially and socially empower our communities in all aspects, start with the above links, as a starting point to network with!
Bm and Bw have the highest intra-racial marriages of all races and there is no reason for us to ponder divorce rates of inter-racial marriages when we have the highest rate of intra-racial marriages of all the races bw marry bm 98% of the time when they marry highest by far of all races of women marrying inside there own race...now those are stats are people should know
you need to put that crystal meth down. white boys try to flirt with black women all the time. they often flirt when there aren't any black men or other black people around. several black women have told me white men tried to flirt with them all the time. a girlfriend of mine told me about several white men try to come onto her. a white woman got upset at me on my job. she got upset, because i said i only like dark skin black women. she was truly upset. she told me i should like a woman for her personality. i told her i like dark skin black women and i do not care what she thought. you have white boys like white women , because they are blonde. wanting someone because the color of their hair is whacked. but that is another subject. do you white people take responsibility for anything. like the environment and this planet.
Word! I actually saw Scarface on B.E.T. about a month ago & there R no Black people in it! When R we gonna realize the media is designed 2 stupify us like the curriculum of the schools "teaching" our children? This sh___ started with slavery when it was illegal 4 us 2 learn 2 read & upgraded 2 now where they decide what we learn. The only way 2 fight it as individuals is 2 seek specialized knowledge which 4 us usually doesn't start until college! Welcome 2 the real-life matrix.
That's actual footage of Ronald Reagan, the chief fascist himself. A man who funded right-wing governments in El Salvador and Guatemala, both of whom were responsible for the murder of thousands of their respective countrymen. Unsurprisingly, Ronald Reagan called one of these butchers --- Guatemala's Rios Montt -- a "man who had the best interests of the Guatemalan people at heart."
This is what fascists do: Murder. Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, Pinochet, Reagan: The fascist scum cadre.

LLLLLOOOOOOOVVVVVVEEEE being a black women. I would hope that all races feel the same about their own. But I have to say, when it boils down to the gravy, black women are the strongest, loyalist, and realist at they come.
what’s interesting is whites never talk about HOW they sold other white folk into slavery…they have a very selective memory, only remembering those historical tidbits that paint them as HEROES…
here’s more from Mr. Beard:
“In reality, slavery is an human institution. Every ethnic group has sold members of the same ethnic group into slavery. It becomes a kind of racism; that, while all ethnic groups have sold its own ethnic group into slavery, Blacks can’t do it. When Eastern Europeans fight each other it is not called tribalism. Ethnic cleansing is intended to make what is happening to sound more sanitary. What it really is, is White Tribalism pure and simple.
Every notice, _A_ that whites never refer to themselves as “tribes”?..
The fact of African resistance to European Imperialism and Colonialism is not well known, though it is well doc**ented. Read, for instance, Michael Crowder (ed.), West African Resistance, Africana Publishing Corporation, New York, 1971.
Europeans entered Africa in the mid 1400 s and early 1500 s during a time of socio-political transition. Europeans chose a favorite side to win between African nations at a war and supplied that side with guns, a superior war instrument.
In its victory, the African side with guns rounded up captives of war who were sold to the Europeans in exchange for more guns or other barter. Whites used these captives in their own slave raids.
These captives often held pre-existing grudges against groups they were ordered to raid, having formerly been sold into slavery themselves by these same groups as captives in inter-African territorial wars. In investigating our history and capture, a much more completed picture emerges than simply that we sold each other into slavery.
The Ashanti, who resisted British Imperialism in a Hundred Years War, sold their African captives of war and criminals to other Europeans, the Portuguese, Spanish, French, in order to buy guns to maintain their military resistance against British Imperialism (Michael Crowder, ed., West African Resistance).
In 1652, knowing that the indigenous South Africans were no pushovers, Van Riebeeck didn’t waste any time. As soon as the Khoi Khoi returned from hunting, Van Riebeeck accused them of stealing Dutch cattle.
Simply over that assertion, war broke out, and the superior arms of the Dutch won. South African Historian J. Congress Mbata best explains this dynamic in his lectures, available at the Cornell University Africana Studies Department. Mbata provides three steps: 1) provocation by the Whites, 2) warfare and, 3) the success of a superior war machinery.
There are several instances in which Cecil Rhodes, towards the end of the 19th Century, simply demonstrated the superiority of the Maxim Machine Gun by mowing down a corn field in a matter of minutes.
Upon such demonstrations the King and Queen of the village, after consulting the elders, signed over their land to the Whites. These scenarios are quite different from the Hollywood version, and well doc**ented.
It has been important to present the matters above to dispel the notion of an African slave trade that involved mutuality as a generalized dynamic on the part of Africans. If we can accept the doc**ented facts of our history above and beyond propaganda, we can begin to heal. We can begin to love one another again and go on to regain our liberties on Earth.” — Oscar L. Beard
sorry about the long posts, but it paints a more accurate and entirely different picture that whites have painted of how slavery began..
The FACT is all races of people have sold their prisoners of war into slavery, this is VASTLY different than Africans selling their neighbors, sisters, aunts, or fathers and mothers…
This crammasters' reply to some of the sellout BM bashing BW in a wicked way:
Here's some truth for ya, bro:
You dudes are about to put the KKK out of bizness with this BW-bashing bulls___. The white supremacists all over the country are clapping their hands and chuckling -- "look at them BM, fighting BW, while we white men are the ones giving them hell. Guess they scared of tangling with us. Let's sit back and let these black boys do our got-damn work for us..."
Once again the WM has bamboozled the gullible, over-emotional, ILLOGICAL BM & BW -- except for those of US that don't fall for the hype of hating our own. Even when a BM said the WW ain't all sweetness and light her d___ self, some fool azz defended the WHITE MAN'S WOMAN! Yet, the same BM complains when a WW grabs her purses cause he steps onto the elevator....
Or we shake our heads in disgust when a WW marries a BM pro-baller and then divorces him four years later and takes 60% of his fortune OR we hear about the BM pro-baller who found out that his WW wife had been having abortions behind his back because she didn't want any black babies...
see, i figured this sh___ out a while ago. That the main reason some BM pretend the WW is all that is so we can use her as a "threat" to beat BW over the head with it....
Neely Fuller, Jr. the creator of the counter-racism code described this phenomena as the "BM's inability to tell himself the truth due to ego". http://www.counter-racism.com His theory is being played out right on this thread...
I know all kinds of BM & BW, some good, some bad, most in-between. I know BW who are holding down the fort, raising the kids--alone, working two jobs and if it WASN'T for them, half the BMs on this thread wouldn't have had food on the damn table when they was shorties. And I know BM who LOVE their BW and kids, work hard, and handle their business, which means they ain't got time to spend on line putting other black folks down just for being black...
am it safe to assume y'all feel this way about your black mommas? Or are you going to pull that lame bull___ that white folks use when they stereotype and degrade black folks -- "You're (momma) not like other blacks (BW)..."
Bottom line, ain't none of us saints. ANY black person who blanketly stereotypes other black people has definite self-hatred issues and would be better served laying on a therapist's couch than tapping a keyboard...
Keep your third eye open. Like I said,they're crafty. And the media is real slick. I don't believe half the mess the news pus out. They have an agenda to deceive the public and divide blacks,latinos and asians. While the white man stays in control. Divide and conquer is the oldest trick in the book. And some people are still falling for it. But I know what's going n.
Have to re-post.. Enough with this Bashing
If you are done with Black Men well move on and I wish you the best. But how dare you create a thread and tell other Black Women we should follow behind you because of your bad experience with the black male. Yes as a woman I’ve been hurt by MAN… what WOMAN hasn’t. White MEN has hurt white women too.
Now look around do you see white women creating threads telling their peers to jump ship and leave the white MAN… NO you do not and you will not. This mess you are spreading that black men are bad is just another LIE. See I’m a grown a** woman and as I grew I learned the difference between what is good for me and what is not. I promise you I’ve been blessed with more good BLACK men then your so call bad. You on the other hand continue to pick from the same barrel. A good man searches for a good woman, maybe this is why they always find me... Understand. If you continue to encounter bad MEN, well maybe you need to check yourself. Don’t come on an AAF to put down black men and try to uplift the white man as if they are better for a Sista.
If that man is black, white, green or purple, that man is still a MAN. You are not promise a “perfect” relationship. All relationships have problems and are given choices. You can stay and make it work or move on. The strong, loving and respectable couples can outlast them all. If it doesn’t work out, well at least I hope you learned something from it so you won't take that mistake over to the next one with a bitter attitude.
Now that I’ve shared this with you and others, I stand by my previous comment… YOU are a TROLL on a fail mission to divide. BE GONE!!
Oh yeah! Repeating… I LOVE BLACK MEN and BLACK MEN LOVES ME!!!
-MsNewNew (A Great sister)
Contrary to popular belief, black men are not running in droves to marry other races of women. Those are the relationships that the MEDIA highlights because they want us DIVIDED
ME: Right, most BM IR relationships don't end in marriage, even if babies come into the picture. In fact, the marriage for BM is the lowest it's ever been, even lower than during the Great Depression!
which is one reason -- in my opinion -- that the black community is so fragile: unparented children, breakdown of the black family, fewer and fewer stable, two-parent households
The FAMILY is the foundation for all human societies. And when the family is damaged, the kids, the community, the nation is damaged.
What has happened, Cali, is the media has worked overtime degrading the image of BW, from music, to movies, to comedy, to BM wearing dresses in roles designed to degrade BW, that some weak-minded BM have fallen for the hype of seeking a "better" woman aka one that the white folk will approve of...
whenever I've been involved in a grassroot black organization, for some reason, these white females start coming out of the woodwork, often brought in by some clueless black female...
After a while, i started noticing a pattern...most of them wound sexing a BM in the organization. I have been cornered, propositioned, groped, goo-goo-eyed, etc by these "socially conscious" white females and I finally figured out the real deal
There's something about an "angry BM" that makes some WW's panties bunch, because they figure we're going take out that "righteous anger" on them in the bed aka hot, nasty, angry sex...
I was listening to a black internet radio station last week where the BM host was interviewing this young white female who claimed to be an "anti-racist" fighting racism
and then a BM caller asked her this question: "Have u ever been sexually involved with a BM?"
Well, she didn't want to answer it (understandable) but her non-answer turned into this:
"Well, I got very attached to this black man, and I was very interested in having a relationship with him but he said he couldn't get involved with a white woman."
I could hear it in her voice that she was still angry and disappointed when she said "I didn't understand his reaction, why should race have anything to do with two people getting together?"
And i said to myself -- "BINGO"
Once again, a white person reveals their attempt to sexualize every encounter with a black person. Here she is supposedly fighting racism, and she refuses to see that this conscious BM knew he couldn't fight racism while he's boning a white female.
She couldn't respect that, because she had a different agenda than fighting "racism,"
In fact, I'll go further and say she INSTINCTIVELY knew that fugging BM would allow white females like herself to have her cake and eat it, too.
because once that BM gets into bed with her, his head is messed up, and he will NOT be able to fight white supremacy as effectively as before he got into her bed and threaten her white privileges.
so maybe, on some deep instinctive level, she was trying to derail and distract this BM's attempt to fight white supremacy
like RedAlert7 said, this IR SEX and RACE s___ is DEEP, much deeper than most black folks will ever go and that's the reason white folks are WINNING and why we are still behind the eight ball...
they have an agenda and don't care how they accomplish
while black folk are too busy worrying about "offending" whites to have one....
just food for thought...
THE ONE THING THAT A STUDENT OF HISTORY LEARNS IS WHAT:
*THE MORE THAT THINGS CHANGE THE MORE THAT THEY STAY THE SAME!
But you can say..." The more they say things change, the more they say the same...."
Thats what the demokrats and republican slave drivers do to our communities, always poppin up around election talkin that "kumbaya" change sh____, when they ain't got a changin bone in they body...
Once a beast always a beast....
100% absolutely positively agree with that guy. And you can see it all over the media with their refusal to promote any kind of black love. Every AAM and AAW has to be involved in an IRR on film and TV. Sure, like any form of propaganda this will eventually breakdown the oneness between BM and BW and erode and divide the AA community. And the sudden use of "biracial" and "mixed". Colorism is coming to AA in a way that it had never been there, before.
I glad that more people are talking about, because it does represent a great threat to us.
They've been doing this with blacks in the UK for quite a few years now. The good thing is, a lot of us are waking up to what's going on, because I've noticed a few UK blacks talking about it here and on other sites. Also, IR marriage among blacks here has gone down in the last few years.
Garrig - finance without morality, principles equals slavery too. Therefore, ones financial successes does not equal true citizenry.
Name a judge from our ethnicity who is challenging the system; refusing to allow the officers of the court to violate one's guarantees in the Constitution? Name a mayor from our ethnicity who is challenging the system; refusing to allow governmental workers to benefit while the people are exploited? The president? Do you honestly believe the president is like you or I? Many foolishly asked the question is the president black enough in 2006/2007. They should had asked was the president Caucasian enough to get the money to compete.
Excuse my slick talk now, do you honestly believe inclusion into something rotten equals progress? Therefore, the problem is justice and true citizenry.
You asked, "is there someone holding down the disenfranchised?" Yes, the disenfranchised by mechanisms governed by the majority group. However, I think IT IS ALL OUR FAULT. Caucasians have been consistent from the beginning; it is Africans in America who refuse to embrace the truth.
The main weapon - ignorance, lack of a proper education. The issue is not Caucasians; the issue is and always had been Africans in America. If Africans in America, my people change our mentality, we immediately change our reality.
What are your complaints about America? If Garrig had the position, what would Garrig implement to address those complaints?
-Jermaine Malik Floyd
The material thats in here is all thats needed, and it needs to be re-read forever by the african man and woman any and everywhere.....
Brother X laid down a fine historical outline of what the truth of our PEOPLE really is, and thats all there is to it!
Yes it will continue to be brought forth!
SEE kip i deal in reality, i deal in truth, based on my experiences, and the experiences I SEE and FEEL everyday from my brothers and sisters facing this mess, so when i see this taking place with the genocidal advocating, i know whats REALLY UP KIP, I KNOW THE TRUTH, and i'm trying to wake the masses up, anyway possible, because in the end, if you don't wake up, you die KIP.....
You think you know what hate is now kip......naaaa you don't know the half of it....
Hate and Evil is when a man, is able to strip your language, name, culture, homeland, mind, and last but not least, LOVE FOR SELF, to get you to LOVE him!
THATS REAL HATE, to teach someone, a race of people to hate themselves, and produce what is being resulted in TODAY!!
So there are a lot of self-hating black men (particularly on Topix) and misinformed , who have been pushing these lies about black women for various agendas.
But yeah, regardless of all that, I've compiled a list of stereotypes that I find most tiresome when continually touted by self-hating black men for why they worship non-black women, or ignorant black women for why they feel justified in being horrid individuals because they think that its "part of who we are".
The Five Myths About Black Women I Will Be Debunking In This Thread Are:
1.) We’re the fattest in America
2.) ALL of us are single baby mamas
3.)½ of us have Herpes and it’s because we’re f____ EVERYBODY
4.) Black women can’t grow natural unless they are mixed
5.) We’re jealous of non-black women and desire white men.
I'll be back. Research and sources from others are welcomed as well, as always with me. And if my sources are inaccurate or out of date, then please give me updated information. The goal of this thread is NOT to paint black women as being perfect, as I believe we have MUCH to work on. Nor is this about me being right vs. wrong. Rather the goal is to show blacks that we need to take a closer look at research done on us before we stupidly believe every negative thing that falls out of white culture's mouths about us. If it turns out that the stuff is true then, let's improve ourselves. But if not, then we need accurate information about our community before we can embark on self-improvement.
But enough from me. I'll just let the the key tidbits from scholarly sources, speak for themselves in the that follow...
See you soon!
1.) We're the fattest in the U.S.
Key points:“Our study shows that the currently used BMI cutoff value for obesity recommended by the NIH (BMI 30 kg/m2 or greater) may be too high and does not reflect actual body fatness by race or ethnicity among reproductive-aged women. Use of this definition resulted in the misclassification of many obese women when compared with use of WHO criteria despite having
very good specificity.
...The difference between actual and observed obesity rates in whites (59% compared with 28%) and
Hispanic (69% compared with 38%) women could be
a threat to the success of obesity awareness and
programs in the United States. The NIH-based obesity rate calculations, which show that black women have the highest obesity rate, were not supported by percent body fat data in this study. In contrast, Hispanic women had the highest obesity rates based on percent body fat classified obesity.
In layman’s terms what is being said by research is this: obesity studies done on women in the U.S. based on BMI measurements concluded that America is an OBESE nation, but that black women were the fattest.“70% of black women are overweight”...yadda, yadda, yadda.
Well, recent studies show that the BMI measurements used in nearly ALL of that research are NOT an accurate indication of obesity PARTICULARLY among different ethnic groups and when other measures of obesity were done it was found that Hispanic women, not black women, have the highest obesity rates. This does not mean that black women DON’T need to work on their weight, because obviously that isn’t the case, as most Americans do. What these studies DO show is that once again, blacks have been duped into believing that black women are the worse based off research standards that cater primarily to Caucasians and are projected onto us.
What this also means is that black people need to STOP stupidly accepting all the bull___ that is produced about us and start thinking critically about our own race because as previously noted, many in our race readily accept and use lies and generalizations and false info to justify some of our self-hating ways. I mean, seriously, how many times has a kooning negro used that whole,“dem black women bees fat, I’s gotta get with Becky” cop out excuse.
Meanwhile, how many black women are sitting around being unhealthy because they’ve accepted the Aunt Jeminah stereotypes about us being fat and happy based off flawed research done on blacks in the U.S.? I honestly don’t blame whites for producing lies about us. Instead, I blame US for believing them and, even worse, acting on them without looking at them critically first.
And once again, this isn’t a HALLELUJAH moment. Because blacks have many health concerns relating to the types of foods we eat in our community and our weight. However, the lie that black women are the fattest in America needs to be laid to rest. BTW does anyone ever wonder why we saw the whole “70% of black women are fat” studies ALL over the place, but the media is all hush, hush about studies debunking the bull___? Black people…let’s all wake up k? SMH
Other articles for your reference:
I’ll be back cover the other myths about black women and deal with usual suspects and crazy a___ comments.
Meanwhile, would an intelligent poster on the AA forum consider making a “5 Myths About Black Men Debunked” thread? When I’m finished with this one, I have LOTS of research to contribute to debunking a lot of bull_____ we believe about black males due to our ignorance and self-hate too. Particularly bull____ like deadbeat dads and rape statistics and the like.
See you soon!
Well I'd say it starts with what we can offer each other outside of our genetic material-thats a given almost. But but is it that is truly unique between a Black Man and a Black Woman.
For me it boils down to a few things and I'll share them here.
Legacy building: Being able to pass something onto to the generation of black men and women (your children) is something that has a deep meaning. Something that a person of another race couldn't fully appreciate or at least view with the same pride.
Cultural integrity: Being able to pass down the story of Brer Rabbit and John Henry, having a broom specially made for weddings in the family, passing down recipes (healthier versions and traditional) and tell the significance and history of each dish, etc and not compromising it to accomodate another.
A little cache in the community: Sounds silly but I get excited when I see a black couple and a black family.
I don't focus too much on the asthetic appeal-this community as a lot of physical variety so I don't this image of what a black man should look like in my head. Not saying there isn't a preference or two I check for but thats about it.
It shouldn't be just Black Love- it needs another name for something that is more than just a relationship, it's an institution in a way.
