Blacks in this day in time don’t realize their value.
We can’t depend on this European education that the United States school system is based off of because it’s designed to keep us deaf and dumb to the world around us. We’re not as useless and lazy as they want us to think. Not every brother is a thug and not every sister is loud.
We were once kings and queens who created the greatest civilization known to man, and were the founders of democracy, something this country is supposedly built on. We were the ones who taught the Greeks and Asians and therefore are the primary reason for the success of their civilizations. It was Akhenaten, the husband of Queen Nefertiti, who founded Christianity in Egypt with his belief in only one God.
It was us who invented the written language and wrote the many “lost” books of the Bible, yet we barely practice the craft we perfected. There is a saying, “If you want to hide something from a [Negro], then put it in a book,” and unfortunately, that’s true. Our true history has been written down in many books, but instead of reading them, we continue to roam the Earth as “black” sheep.
Thousands of years of black history has been erased and what’s left has been crammed into one month. The only way to escape oppression is through education and obtaining wealth. First, we have to instill in our youth their worth, morals and values, and that through education anything is possible. Next, we have to stop fighting, killing, and deterring one another. And last, but not least, we must obtain wealth because they’re not just going to give us freedom, we have to buy it. We have to stop being so materialistic and focus on what’s really important.
So to all the young brothers and sisters, understand that the color of your skin and the blood in your veins is royalty, and don’t let anybody tell you different. We, the black race, are the chosen ones but in order for us to have a future, we must uncover our past.
