"We must realize that upon ourselves depend our destiny, our future; we must carve out that future,, that destiny, and we who make up UNIA have pledged ourselves that nothing in the world shall stand in our way, nothing in the world shall discourage us, but opposition shall make us work harder, shall bring us closer together so that as one man the millions of us will march torward that goal that we have set ourselves. The new black man shall not be deceived. The new black man refuses to take advise from anyone who has not felt with him, and suffered with him. we have suffered for three hundred years, therefore we feel that the time has come when only those who have suffered with us can interpret our feelings and our spirit. It takes the slave to interpret the feelings of the slave; it takes the unfortunate man to intepret the spirit of his unfortunate brother; and so it takes the suffering black man to intepret the spirit of his comrade. It is strange that so many people are interested in the black man now, willing to advise him how to act, and what organization s to join, yet nobody was interested in the black blakman to the extent of not making him a slave for two hundred and fifty years reducing him to industrial peonage and serfdom after he was freed: it is strange that the same people can be so interested in the blakman now, as to tell him what organization he should follow and what leader he should support.
Whilst we are bordering on a future of brighter things, we are also at our danger period, when we must either accept the right philosophy, or go down by following deceptive propaganda which has hemmed us in for many centuries". words of Hon. Marcus Garvey.
Arent this words true looking at the world we are in today?
keep the fire burning all mighty warriors for the redemption of all people for the freedom of one is surely dependent on the freedom of all!

So T R U E....

After all we have endured, as a people, and at the hands of others....  Then who can, and should decide our future path, but us.... All of us, as a collective...  As you said, "millions marching as one"....

Who can rally against that???

Marcus Garvey was an extremely insightfull man... He was light-years ahead of most of us... Are his thoughts still relevant today?Huh? You bet they are....

Peace, my Brotha....



"Individuality" is a very good thing... but... "Team-Work" is way more "Better"...
