  • Intellectual Food for Thought

    Greetings family,

    Throughout ourstory, across continents and oceans, wherever Afrika people are the Afrikan deep thought and wisdom that is our legacy can be found in the words of truth we speak. These words are timeless and carry a power that outlives the speaker. They truly are food for thought and a great tool for us to use in helping us fully innerstand the reAfrikanization process and better mentally conceive of the reality we must create. This thread is dedicated to sharing those wise words/Afrikan deep thought/quotes that can help us do just that.

    Please share the quotes that resonate with you and by all means discuss what they mean for us today.

    "If we truly knew and felt the slave experience we would divorce
    ourselves from everything that delivered those experiences to us,
    whether they were social, economic or religious. How could these
    creations be good for us if they came with and helped cause and
    maintained slavery. The answer is clear, we still have a slave
    mentality, world view and relationship with this white supremacist
    system. Being super consumers is not freedom."

          “Mental bondage, divorces the individual from the knowledge inherent in his being that should be used to further his evolution. One in mental slavery looks to another for guidance instead of within. The knowledge contained within the mental slave’s mind has atrophied because it is untapped.”

          Richard King

            This is not so. They made us leave history, our history, to follow them, right at the back, to follow the progress of their history.”

              “So long as foreigners own land, mines, factories, banks, insurance companies, means of transportation, newspapers, power stations, etc. then for so long will the wealth of Africa flow outwards into the hands of those elements.”

                "Being upset with individuals because of their mentacide is like intentionally driving in the slow lane and getting upset because the driver in front of you will not speed up. At that moment this is where they are most comfortable. And, whether we understand it or not, or like it or not, that lane is theirs at the time."

                  "This is what happens when we become friends with the enemy. How can we be friends of the white man if their happiness depends on our enslavement?"

                    "Warriors of the Afrikan Way cannot get lost in the confusion of those who do not want to be Afrikan under any condition, except as spies or overseers for our enemies. Mentacide, like misery, s company."
