"Never allow the opinions of others to become your reality." ~Gurda
I've been on this earth a long time and like all human beings, I've had highs and lows. But one thing I can say...is that I have never felt inferior to anyone--and particularly because of my African American heritage. It's quite the opposite. I feel a sense of not only pride in who I am; there's always been a strong sense of superiority towards whites, who for the most part; have always been motivated by racist attitudes and biases against Black people and other people of color. It's my way of countering the enemy's design of psychological warfare against Black people.
In my honest opinion, Black people worldwide do not realize how powerful they are mainly because of the media's blatant dismissal of our contributions as a people on this planet, and also because of some Blacks who possess power and wealth to change our condition, but accommodate white supremacy through passive compliance.
You've got to be bold in this world. Take the bull by the horns.
I know that Black people have accomplished a lot on this planet and I for one learned before I graduated high school that history is distorted to keep whites dominant over us through the reconstruction of facts. All anyone has to do is learn European history--and you'll see the gaps. Over 5000 years are literally wiped away.
Africa was going through it's third golden period when Europe was in the Dark Ages.
Thank God for Black Scholars like, Cheikh Anta Diop, Dr. John Henrick Clark, Dr. Chancellor Williams, Runoko Rashidi et al, who documented our history and all Black people have to do to take power is to OWN OUR NARRATIVE. Take control of the media markets that truly determine perceptions and invest in our communities and people. Education must be approached with the wisdom of how it empowers. Knowledge is power. Information is critical. This is fact.
Within the next few years, the buying power of Black people will reach 1 Trillion dollars. This money could do tremendous things if our people would simple understand what white folks and other groups seem to understand: Posterity. Build our people and communities up. Empower those communities with Black entrepreneurship.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste; and wasting time, talent and energy keeps us weak.
The richest place on earth is not a gold or diamond mine; it is a graveyard. Why? Because graveyards are filled with people who never lived up to their potential.
Get lifted Black people.
