The following is a repost from African Holocaust
Someone gets more kudos and respect for saying two nice words about Whitney Houston than for spending 2 years fighting the International Criminal Court’s policies against Africans. They will get more props going on TV and shouting about police brutality than one would ever get from creating new educational reform that integrates African history to 20 million people. Mental enslavement affects the logic centers of the brain, it prefers spectacle and feel good over real pertinent issues: Substance is of no consequence over spectacle.
“We see the problem and then we see the objective, but all the steps leading up to that objective are vague”
Mental slavery also means a disconnection from reality. Like a child who wants things but is unaware how things are obtained in the real world. So only two points – a start and an end point – can be seen, all the numbers and steps in-between to get from 1 to 10 are missing. Sure we can see the importance of history and owning media, factories and image of self.
Sure they want to own a black version of CNN and Random House, but all those “little” steps on the ladder that lead to owning these things escape us (such as unity, organization, investment of time, support, spending). Looking at the stars without understanding space flight will not help you get there.

I want my revolution, but I do not want to lose anything. I want to be healthy, but eat Chitterlings all day. I want the full pleasure of sex, but not the responsibility of marriage. I want all the freedoms afforded to me under this slave system, but I want all the perks of being fully liberated. I want my bank account to be full, but I do not want to work. I want to own my own house, but I do not want to pay the mortgage. I want to be African, but behave like a European. I want to be part of community, but behave like an individual. I respect the ancestors, unless I don’t like what I am hearing. I want justice in the world– unless it causes me to lose something.
