“Recall the phrase: Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free… if we are not free today, then we must not know the truth. The knowledge of truth threatens those who wish to imprison us, keep us imprisoned and keep us dominated” – Amos N. Wilson
The acceptance and the knowledge of the truth, the truth of who we are as Black/Afrikan people, the truth of our condition, the truth about our place in the society that has been constructed by our enemies, the truth about the desired outcome for Black/Afrikan people from the enemy’s plans (GENOCIDE), the truth about the tactics used by our enemies in order to achieve this outcome, as well as the willingness and ability to act on our knowledge, is one of the first and most important steps towards the liberation of Black/Afrikan people from under the system of racism/white supremacy. Our people must learn to unconditionally accept, and appreciate truth in all of its ugliness or beauty, if we have any hope of taking our enemies on and defeating this system of white supremacy for once and for all. And it is my assessment that without a complete and thorough understanding and total acceptance of the truth of our current precarious predicament as a race, the mental clarity and focus of what must be done for our liberation will forever be beyond our reach.

We literally are our ancestors. The same blood that ran through the veins of Imhotep, Garvey, Harriet Tubman, Malcolm X, Dr. Khalid, Dr. Welsing, Nat Turner, and many others, runs through our veins as we speak. There are Nat Turners in our midst right now. Unfortunately, that same Afrikan warrior spirit that compelled Nat Turner to perform the ultimate act of courage, in which all Black/Afrikan people in the so-called Americas, and worldwide, should be forever grateful, is a spirit that has been obscured by hundreds of years of conditioning, programming, diseducation and discouragement. We have had that revolutionary warrior spirit, which is protected and nurtured through a sense of divine spirituality and righteousness, beaten out of us, literally and figuratively. We have been broken, programmed to be whatever our enemies need us to be in order to accomplish their ultimate goal, which is the wholesale extermination of the Black/Afrikan race.
