Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Hollywood, Heat and Holiday Homicides

We’ve said it before, and we will say it again: It MATTERS that, so often, the only time we see black life in the movies, in music videos and on the local news, is when we are engaged in a “beef.” Violence and murder have become so glorified in “Black Media,” and so commonplace in the lives of urban America, that we have become used to it. NUMB to it.
As we move toward the July 4th holiday and temperatures continue to rise, folks living in the urban centers of America are growing increasingly nervous about the violence that seems so inevitable in the long, hot days of the summer…and rightfully so. In Chicago alone, a stunning string of murders has made the international headlines: The Huffington Post even lamented that Chicago’s murder rate is currently worse than that of Kabul Afghanistan. Yes, you read that right….WORSE THAN AFGHANISTAN.  » Brainwashed
