“Shining Black Prince“TheThird World Press, under the leadership of its founder and publisher,Haki R. Madhubuti, has published a new book on Malcolm X, edited by Herb Boyd and Ilyasah Al-Shabazz, titled,The Diary…
I saw this film a couple of weeks ago at Lichtblick Kino, Prenzlauerberg. It wasn’t put together so well but the themes discussed around American black nationalism and the government’s response were really interesting and there’s definitely a lot to be learned from Mumia’s story.
just finished my first viewing of “Hidden Colors” I say the first because to truly digest this film you will want to have multiple viewings Blessings to Tariq Nasheed for gathering the scholars and presenting this information The teachers in this film are well-versed in African history, sociology, politics, etc. and they present the information with a sense of furious determination and spirit not seen in very many documentaries. This film will jump start you on your quest for knowledge of self and serves as an excellent (visual) bibliography for future study and expansion. If you think this film is fascinating wait until you branch further into the details of this history It’s MIND BLOWING For the first time ever the true motivation of white supremacy is explained in full The contributions of the Moors to early American society is also explored in great detail. While long-forgotten rumors such as Abraham Lincoln racial heritage are finally brought back to light I could go on but I don’t want to ruin the many surprises contained in the movie i hope that Mr. Nasheed will continue to bring us future volumes and that Hidden Colors will become a series for those seeking to learn more about the origins of the human family and of civilization by way of African history When sharing this film you may encounter the typical “Uncle Tom” response from many of your black brothers and sisters Indeed your own parents and grandparents may know nothing of the historical facts presented in “Hidden Colors” Do not be discouraged by this and continue to study This type of explosive material might cause some to show their ignorance that’s so Fantastic movie for sure and I look forward to watching it again and again so that I may digest it all and The souls of Black people have been starving for this ( The link of the movie http://viooz.co/movies/12602-hidden-colors-2011.html )

Remember Mozambique Sistas;

Of the 175,000 jobs claimed, 13,000 are taxpayer-supported government jobs.
Of the 162,000 private sector jobs claimed, a mere 22,000 or 13.6% are goods producing jobs or which 15,000 or 68% are in construction The other 140,000 are service jobs.
Are these service jobs the promised high-pay “New Economy” jobs? No, but judge for yourself. 14,800 are jobs in wholesale trade. Food and beverage stores accounted for 12,000 new jobs. The Federal Reserve accounted for 7,800 jobs in order to continue rigging every financial market, thus replacing capitalism with Federal Reserve Central Planning.
Accounting and bookkeeping services (it is tax time) gave the economy a short-lived 15,700 jobs. There were 24,400 temporary help jobs. The old standby, education and health services, delivered 33,000 jobs. Leisure and hospitality produced 25,000 jobs of which 21,200 are waitresses and bartenders who live on tips.
This has been the jobs profile of the “world’s only superpower” for the entirely of the 21st century. Washington, wallowing in its arrogance and hubris, is unconcerned with its economic base. Washington believes its own propaganda about the (non-existent) recovery and America’s economic power.
spor-addict-thoughts asked: It seems Black Consciousness is becoming a fad on the internet and I foresee it spilling over into the mainstream world. What do you think of this? What do you think it being a fad and potentially co-opted, might I add AGAIN, by whites mean given the current political and economic times both domestically and globally? Heavy question but your thoughts?
Brother I absolutely see it happening. It is problem because the true aspects of Black Consciousness are not being recognized and implemented. You have too many people passing along quotes and lectures from our great Ancestors and teachers but none are acting upon their sayings. It is something that makes them feel good instead of going out and organizing for our communities. It is very much commercial as well. Everyone is selling their own merchandise for personal gain and not to benefit our own people. And as you pointed out, europeans are engaging in this practice as well by selling our products related to Black Consciousness to us. I mean those who oppress us control the very industry we are trying to use to uplift and build for self! We are trying to connect Afrikans in the Diaspora and on the continent together for nation building but the key is being misused by a number of people including those who oppress us and are of our people. We cannot expect to have the right to self-governance and self-determination if we cannot control a concept and use it properly and effectively.
it reminds me of the oxymoron of paying $3000. for someone elses hair to be weaved onto yours for a month; when you only earn $12k a year. always buying an identity instead of being in tune with your own.
