Mekyea mo Abibitumi Kasa abusuafoO (I greet you Afrikan Power family members),
I'm currently reading this book and its Blacknificent!!! Its full to overflowing with words of wisdom from our Nananom Nsamanfo, warrior scholars, wise elders, and contemporaries. Nana Mwalimu has the gift of speaking our truth with a clarity that settles the need for any debate.
This book is a blacksolute must have for your personal library and is an excellent tool for Afrikan families to use to teach their children, reinforce their vision and commitment to reAfrikanization, dewhitenization, and nationbuilding and keep Abibifahodie (Afrikan liberation) at the forefront of our minds all day, everyday (right where it should be!).
Below is the Nyansasem reading for today, Osanaa (august) 26:
"When the oppressed, for whatever reason, begin to feel too weak to fight their real enemy, the oppressor himself, they turn upon themselves, squabbling over this or that theory while leaving the oppressor free to do anything he chooses." ~ Nathan Hare
"At the heart of the problem Afrikan people have in empowering ourselves is a lack of trust. So many of us no longer see each other as family. And this, fundamentally, is a problem of trust. We have been conditioned to distrust each other. Breaking trust creates discord, disunity and disrespect, making invasion and destruction easier. Any longstanding, deeply rooted trust lost from a people can only be regained through a protracted, intensive and extensive, nationbuilding effort. And, even though our trust for each other has been only incompletely destroyed and the struggle required to make it and us whole again began with the very first assault against it, nothing less than its complete and total reclamation and resurrection as one of our most powerful and respected traditions must guide the effort behind every move we make to lovingly ReAfrikanize ourselves. Devolping trust must be the force, the dynamic "ulterior motive" behind all our work to help of each other." ~ Mwalimu K. Bomani Baruti
Affrim: I do not squabble with Afrikans. I work to build trust among us.
