Perhaps actions in the current ‪#BlackLivesMatter movement can employ some of these chants!  #BlackLivesMatter   #BlackPanthers   #BlackHistoryMonth   #BlackPantherParty

Malcolm X: In the past two years, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad has become the most talked about black man in America because he is having such miraculous success in getting his program over among the so-called Negro masses. Time magazine last year wrote that he has eliminated from among his ...

Never let anybody tell you and me the odds are against us—I don’t even want to hear that. Those who think the odds are against you, forget it. The odds are not against you. The odds are against you only when you’re scared. The only things that makes odds against you is a scared mind. When you get all of that fright off of you, there’s no such thing as odds against you. Because when a man knows that when he starts playing with you, he’s got to kill you, that man is not going to play with you. But if he knows when he’s playing with you that you’re going to back up and be nonviolent and peaceful and respectable and responsible, why, you and me will never come out of his claws.

Let him know that you’re peaceful, let him know that you’re respectful and you respect him, and that you’re law-abiding, and that you want to be a good citizen, and all those right-thinking things. But let him know at the same time that you’re ready to do to him what he’s been trying to do to you. And then you’ll always have peace. You’ll always have it. Learn a lesson from history, learn a lesson from history.

I must say this once before we close. I don’t want you to think that I’m coming back here to rabble-rouse, or to get somebody excited. I don’t think you have to excite our people; the man already has excited us. And I don’t want you to think that I’m ready for some unintelligent action, or some irresponsible action, or for just any old thing just to be doing something. No. I hope that all of us can sit down with a cool head and a clear mind and analyze the situation, in the back room, anywhere, analyze the situation; and after we give the proper analysis of what we’re confronted by, then let us be bold enough to take whatever steps that analysis says must be taken. Once we get it, then let’s do it, and we’ll be able to get some kind of result in this freedom struggle.

But don’t let anybody who is oppressing us ever lay the ground rules. Don’t go by their game, don’t play the game by their rules. Let them know now that this is a new game, and we’ve got some new rules, and these rules mean anything goes, anything goes. Are you with me, brothers? I know you’re with me.

Birthday shout out to Huey P. Newton​, co-founder of the The Black Panther Party​. You're snowed in, take 41 minutes and be shocked into action at the relevancy of how a 1988 analysis' is frighteningly, yet unsurprisingly, true today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHL7glIcP4o #HueyNewton   #HueyPNewton   #blackpanther   #blackpantherparty   #racisminamerica

#MalcolmX  on point as per the usual!
 
In America when a black man says, “I have to defend myself,” you should call that what it is, self-defense. And if America has the right to defend herself, from her enemies, the black man in America has the right to defend himself from his enemies. If it’s alright for the black people in Angola to defend themselves against the atrocities of the white Portuguese, if it’s alright for the black people in Algeria to defend themselves against the atrocities of the French, and if it’s alright for the black people in the Congo to defend themselves from the atrocities of the white Belgians, then it is just as much so alright for the black people here in America to defend ourselves from the atrocities that these white American colonialists have been inflicting against us. Don’t never point to colonialism in Africa or Latin America, there are twenty million black people here in America who are thoroughly colonized than any black people in Africa or Asia have ever been. But they have been colonized by a hypocrite.

Saying "all lives matter" is nothing more than you centering and inserting yourself within a very emotional and personal situation without any empathy or respect. Saying "all lives matter" is unnecessary....
