  • Solidarity with a Nia
    Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., once said “Our nettlesome task is to discover how to organize our strength into compelling power.” On Friday, May 15th, a well organized statement of compelling power was made in Port Gibson, miss. The Port Gibson Committee Demanding Justice for the lynching of our Brother Otis Byrd made the statement to the Claiborne County Judicial officials and the u.s. FBI officials "investigating" the murder of Brother Otis Byrd.
    In full solidarity, the Port Gibson Committee Demanding Justice united with the Family of Brother Otis Byrd, The New Black Panther Party, the REAL Learning Institute, the Provisional Government of the Republic of New Afrika, the Natchez Chapter of the National Action Network, the Claiborne County NAACP, Attorney Dennis Sweet & Associates and local churches to Lift Every Voice for justice for the Byrd Family. The Nia (Purpose) of the statement was to make it known publicly that We already know what injustice looks like from our experiences with the FBI's mississippi Cold Case "investigations" from the civil rights era and before. We were saying emphatically that Brother Otis Byrd's lynching case would not become a cold case.  Like in Port Gibson, cross america, Black People have to begin coming together on issues singularly and decide that Solidarity with a Nia is far most important and effective than singular gratification for ensuring justice for victims like our Brother Otis Byrd, Alfred Wright in Texas, Lennon Lacy in North Carolina and others across this country.

    As-Salaam Alaikum,  Beloved Brothers & Sisters, pray you all are blessed to be well & happy (or working toward it -- smile). I haven't commented on the site for a long while, however, as a follower of the Teachings of Messenger Elijah Muhammad this is a subject that is dear to my heart.  Unity of the Black Nation in America & throughout the Planet Earth is the primary focus of Messenger Muhammad's Program and Teachings and, to my way of thinking,  the best way we can give ourselves Freedom, Justice and Equality!  A Blueprint for our success is enumerated on page 174 of "Message to the Blackman in America" as follows: 

    1.  RECOGNIZE the necessity for UNITY and GROUP operation!

    2.  POOL your resources, physically as well as financially.

    3.  STOP wanton criticisms of everything that is Black-owned and Black-operated!

    4.  KEEP in mind --- jealousy destroys from within!

    5.  OBSERVE the operations of the white man.  He is successful.  He makes no EXCUSES for his failures.  He works hard in a COLLECTIVE manner.  You do the same!

    In my view, if we are as tenacious as the lowly ant (after a trail is laid) in reaching our goals --- regardless to whom or what --- our tenacity and diligence would bring recognition and success!

    Peace & Blessings!

    As-Salaam Alaikum,

  • Final word:

    • WE - I = YOU(singular)

    • WE - I = THEY or THEM(plural)

    Ask anyone who propose what WE should do: What are you doing? When will you lead?

    People who wait for WE are either sitting on their hands or pointing fingers.







  • This is no rocket scientific, Richard. WE = YOU + I.  I and You = We.

    If I is sitting down WE are not standing.

    When I stand and inspire you to join Me, We are standing. This called leadership.

    We does not lead itself. We is  lead by an I.

    The problem is WE are all waiting for that I (messiah) - and you and I won't stand up.


    THE IS NO ONE COMING. IF YOU or I don't take action who will?  WE DEFINITELY WON'T!











  • Georgia

    What can be accomplished alone is better kept to ones self!  If there is no we or us than our accomplishments will continue to be as small as they presently are.  That is what is causing us to be a tinkling bell; to be ignored by every other group of peiple.  Not only are we small in others eyes, we are even smaller to each other!!!

  • Richard, there is no US nor WE.  US and WE exist only where you and I are present.


    When I and You are not answering the Call To Action, WE won't and never, never, will.

    Only I can answer the call AND when you join me, WE are answering the call and taking.




  • Georgia

    My call to action is for us to begin to act as the free people that we are.  Let us organize our money and work with the circular flow of the American Economy to create a sub economy of our own.  Everyone else has.  Whether we are talking about the obvious ones like the Jews, the Chinese, the Jananese or those who are less thought of like the Italians, the Irish, the Germans, Polish or Scandanavians.  We must organize our resources, target certain industries and become real players in those industries.  We are the only people in the World that have more businesses than employees, that is our fault!  We must use the tools that we can master to grow our micro enterprises into small businesses:  Support our politicians (so they can properly represent us) and employee our people (the ones who really want to work).
