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

South Africa's Post Apartheid Generation

 New Generation, same of tricks: The South Africa youth, in this documentary, are following the same road as the Black civil rights movement that felt integration was better than separation.  That road has lead to mass poverty, crime and a Euro-centric education that exonerates whites of the crimes of the past.

They would do well to study the Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and Minister Louis Farrakhan unite and build Black Wallstreets.

Born young enough to not know the legalised racism during apartheid, or to see hundreds die in the struggle for freedom, what does it mean to be South Africa's 'born free' generation?

"We're not raised to look at colour. That was our parents' struggle, our struggle is financial independence" explains Mbongeni, a young fashion designer. As the 'born free' generation strides out against the continuing injustices in South Africa; young entrepreneurs like Mbongeni are challenging the past to make a better future. His shirts are daubed with "kaffir" a white racial slur, as an attempt to heal the past and present, to "make peace". Sibu a young fashionista expresses this hope; "the arts say about our generation that we don't need anyone to build us, make us money or give us anything." Despite poverty, unemployment and violence, the 'born free' generation are above all pro-active, fiercely individualistic, and optimistic to change South Africa for the better.
