Quote of the Moment: Malcolm X

“You have whites in the community who express sincerity when they say they want to help. Well, how can they help? How can a white person help the black man solve his problem? Number one, you can’t solve it for him. You can help him solve it, but you can’t solve it for him today.”
-El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz

This year Christmas seemed to have a somber tone. The recession has everyone down. More than ever, I have seen the importance of celebrating Kwanzaa. These 7 principles are more relevant today than ever before. Do yourself a favor and celebrate Kwanzaa with me:

NGUZO SABA(The Seven Principles)

Umoja (Unity)To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation and race.

Kujichagulia (Self-Determination)To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves and speak for ourselves.

Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility)To build and maintain our community together and make our brother’s and sister’s problems our problems and to solve them together.

Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics)To build and maintain our own stores, shops and other businesses and to profit from them together.

Nia (Purpose)To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.

Kuumba (Creativity)To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.

Imani (Faith)To believe with all our heart in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.

Anti-dangerous video of the moment

Are they serious with this video?  Now they’re just mocking us.  First of all, girls that eat Mickey Dees in the middle of the night ain’t hot.  Second, why do they market to us so hard when we’re already a hefty bunch?  That’s like marketing cigarettes to people with lung cancer.  They must want us all to die, didn’t anybody watch Supersize Me?  Wanna know how to be an anti-dangerousNEGRO?  Eat McDonald’s

…really, please don’t eat that crap.  We love you and we don’t want you to die.

Quote of the Moment

“The community’s concern with the election and appointment of Black political figures helps it to maintain false hopes that their attainment of office will significantly resolve its problems. The activities of Black politicians, given the current inadequacy of social organization and economic resources, harmfully distract the Black community’s attention from recognizing and eradicating the true causes of its problems and the remediation of its powerlessness. ” -Dr. Amos N. Wilson, Blueprint for Black Power
