WE HAVE WASTED TOO MUCH MONEY TRYING TO BE THE EQUAL OF THE MILLIONAIRES OF AMERICA. We like sport and play, but we suffer the Pains of hunger because of the millions of dollars lost paying notes for luxuries we could do without--such as fine automobiles, fine clothes, whiskey, beer, wine, cigarettes, tobacco and drugs. Let the entire nation sacrifice for three years. Confine ourselves to not buy more than three suits of clothes a year, never exceeding $65 in cost. Buy the minimum amount of shoes, never paying over $16 a pair, as long as current prices for the above-mentioned merchandise remain the same. (Of course inflation can run prices up until money has no value.) We should cut down on waste in high priced Food. Eat pure and wholesome food without being extravagant. Let us cut our extravagances. As soon as we have enough money in our banks to purchase land sufficient to feed the 22 million black people, we will build storage warehouses to store our supplies of the necessities of life for our people. I believe that if we make the sacrifice throughout the nation for 3 years, as all our nations are doing or have done, we will soon rid our people of poverty and want. Russia did it on a 5-year Plan. Pakistan and other nations did it and are today on top. We must sacrifice for three years. I will not ask you to try a Five-Year Plan I'm afraid that you, with your short patience, will not agree. But try three years on an "economic Savings Program" to fight against poverty among our people here in America. I know you will become a happier and more recognize people and have a spirit of Independence which is the glory of Any Nation. #blackpages #blackpagesbooks #blackliterature #blacklibrary #blackpower #knowledgeofself #godsandearths #nationofislam #blackman #blackwoman #hiphop #staywoke #blackcomics #blackculture #blackart #blackbooks #blackbusiness #rituals #blackmagic #blackrites #blackmentors
"In a bold- indeed, Fearless- intervention in the ongoing race/ gender/sexual orientation debates, Tom Curry challenges the Cozy consensus among self conceived progressives in the humanities. The oppression of black men has been conceptually erased, he argues, by theoretical Frameworks indifferent to the social science data that refute them. Sure to ignite a firestorm of controversy, the Man-Not is an impassioned protest against orthodoxies, both mainstream and radical, white and black. It is required reading for anyone interested in understanding oppression or having unquestioned assumptions put to the test." -Charles W Mills, distinguished professor at the City University of New York Graduate Center #blackpages #blackpagesbooks #blackliterature #blacklibrary #blackpower #knowledgeofself #godsandearths #nationofislam #blackman #blackwoman #hiphop #staywoke #blackcomics #blackculture #blackart #blackbooks #blackbusiness #rituals #blackmagic #blackrites #blackmentors
"Tom Curry has written a cool, brilliant defense of the men who are the pariahs of American society: the ones who, regardless of class, find themselves at the bottom of every hierarchy; the ones whose demographics and statistic in terms of the criminal justice, Healthcare, and other systems are abysmal. Countless billions have been made from the portrayal of black males as Boogeyman. The Man- Not is heavy work, but the general reader will find its arguments well worth the time and effort. This book is controversial. Those who've dogged and stalked black men in the academy and popular culture for the past few decades are sure to have their critical Knives Out. I know. But it's rare for an American intellectual Step Up, regardless of the Fallout. This book is the one that I've been waiting for. Curry has taken a bullet for the brothers." -Ishmael Reed, Professor Emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley, and visiting scholar at the California college of the Arts #blackpages #blackpagesbooks #blackliterature #blacklibrary #blackpower #knowledgeofself #godsandearths #nationofislam #blackman #blackwoman #hiphop #staywoke #blackcomics #blackculture #blackart #blackbooks #blackbusiness #rituals #blackmagic #blackrites #blackmentors

"Sometimes the best way to see a person is by not looking at them." That's deep, also very accurate. Time will always reveal people's true intentions.

Another definition of a hero is someone who is concerned about other peopleโ€™s well-being, and will go out of his or her way to help them โ€” even if there is no chance of a reward. That person who helps others simply because it should or must be done, and because it is the right thing to do, is indeed without a doubt, a real superhero -Stan Lee #stanlee #hero #daretobegreat #obeasetobeast #fatboyfitness #plussizefitness #comics #perspective #time #enjoylife #inspiration #motivation #makeitcount #rip #kingsandqueens #godsandearths #superhero #marvel #xmen #healthiswealth #avengers #deadpool

ONE LOVE. It is the phrase I often share with Everett before we hang up from a collect call or a prison visit. It pains me deeply- often to tears- to see him suffering so long for a crime that he didn't commit. I feel the hot grief that Nas felt when he comforted the tears of Born's mother. It hurts as well to know that prisons are being built to fit the failures and struggles of other young black and brown men just like him. In some states, future prison cells are projected to be built based on third- grade reading scores, making literacy and incarceration indissolubly Inked. Like Nas in "one love," I feel an obligation to raise my voice in defense of millions of young black and brown men and women who may one day follow his path. I want to warn them away from the destructive personal habits that make them vulnerable to prison, much as Nas warned Shorty. But I also must cry out against a society that would punish them in such Unforgiven fashion while extending Mercy to Millions more who aren't poor or black. In my mind, it's inequality and racial Injustice that are the real crimes. #blackpages #blackpagesbooks #blackliterature #blacklibrary #blackpower #knowledgeofself #godsandearths #nationofislam #blackman #blackwoman #hiphop #staywoke #blackcomics #blackculture #blackart #blackbooks #blackbusiness #rituals #blackmagic #blackrites #blackmentors
I ADVISE YOU TO ACCEPT OUR 3-YEAR ECONOMIC PLAN, WHICH WILL WORK A MIRACLE FOR YOU. Unite and stop your extravagant spending, trying to live on the level with Millionaires, and you will make a heaven for yourselves like other nations have done. My followers and I are doing just that and will continue to do so. You are invited to join us and contribute to our program. The preaching that we should have some of this Earth we can call our own is far from being an ignorant teaching that cannot be accomplished. This is wisdom you should know in these days and times. Without some of this Earth of our own, we will never be a people to produce for ourselves. We cannot continue to increase our population in hopes that the white man will continue to create employment for us. I warned you dearly that there will come a time when they probably will drop you and you will have to do for yourself. start practicing The Art of Doing for self now. It is only laziness for you and your children to want to be servants for another Nation. #blackpages #blackpagesbooks #blackliterature #blacklibrary #blackpower #knowledgeofself #godsandearths #nationofislam #blackman #blackwoman #hiphop #staywoke #blackcomics #blackculture #blackart #blackbooks #blackbusiness #rituals #blackmagic #blackrites #blackmentors
NUMBER. 3. WE MUST FORGET ABOUT TRYING TO DO FOR OTHERS BEFORE DOING THAT WHICH WE HAVE NOT DONE FOR OURSELVES, WHICH IS TO ESTABLISH LOVE AND UNITY IN OUR BROTHERHOOD. You rise up and yell out and ignorance against yourself when you say that you want unity, love and Brotherhood of the Nations. Those Nations look at you- where disunity is the order of the day- and see your dislike of self and kind. You are an ignorant and foolish people. Your first desire should be love of self instead of love for those other than of your own. If you do not love your own brother- who is of your flesh and blood- how can other than your own flesh and blood except your love and Brotherhood? First, Love thyself and thy own brother as thyself, and others will love you. #blackpages #blackpagesbooks #blackliterature #blacklibrary #blackpower #knowledgeofself #godsandearths #nationofislam #blackman #blackwoman #hiphop #staywoke #blackcomics #blackculture #blackart #blackbooks #blackbusiness #rituals #blackmagic #blackrites #blackmentors

WELL, MY BUSINESS MODEL IS CALLED THE 'OCTOPUS'. "The octopus, pause, has a head and eight legs, but if you cut one of those legs off, it grows back. Nothing happens to the Head; it grows back. So that's how I look at business. I have a lot of different companies. If one fucks up, I cut that bitch off. Nobody even notices because all the other ones are there. It doesn't affect the head. See, I always invested in movies, invested in fashion, invested in different things because I never wanted music to Define me. I learned that from Russell because there was a time that Def Jam wasn't making too much music and they weren't hot at all. But the Def Comedy Jam show was keeping Def Jam HOT. And he told me, 'yo, as you see I'm not doing anything in music right now, but everyone still saying my name because I'm doing Def Comedy.' And I was like, 'you right.' I'm never going to fall off and not be hot because I'm always going to be doing something that's hot. So I haven't made any music at a level to monetize in a while. I still own Brands like Rachel Roy. I'm always doing something to increase the value of the culture, so I will never be dependent on one thing. I don't trust anything in one business because I feel like, at all times, it could go down. I don't ever want to be dependent on anything. I've always planted a lot of seeds as something else is rolling. Like, while the music's making money, that's the time I could be reckless in something else and lose money because I have so much money over here in this other business. So, the reason I went into Roc-a-wear was because it was so much money coming in from what was happening at Roc-a-fella. Then once Roc-a-wear started making money, I started investing in Rachel Roy because Roc-a-wear was making a lot of money. #blackpages #blackpagesbooks #blackliterature #blacklibrary #blackpower #knowledgeofself #godsandearths #nationofislam #blackman #blackwoman #hiphop #staywoke #blackcomics #blackculture #blackart #blackbooks #blackbusiness #rituals #blackmagic #blackrites #blackmentors

LOUIS ARMSTRONG Louis Armstrong, if anyone, invented the Jazz solo. With his hot fives and hot sevens, recorded between November, 1925, and December, 1928, he changed the musical landscape, putting his distinctive jazz trumpet Style On a par with the Brilliance expected from a European classical virtuoso. Over the next 40 years, his influence spread far beyond Jazz, he became one of the world's best loved entertainers. Born in 1901, in the storyville district of New Orleans, he appears to have sailed through his childhood, though it seems quite Grizzly on paper. Possibly illegitimate, his mother left him for a time in the care of his grandmother, and may have been an occasional prostitute. His formal education was sketchy, but, left to run the streets, he was exposed to the rich musical life of his neighborhoods. Committed to the coloured Waifs' home, he responded well to the discipline and join the band. Starting on Alto horn, his ability developed rapidly, and he was soon promoted to the post of bugler. His story from then on encapsulates that of jazz: work on the river boats, the summons to join King Oliver in Chicago, the chance to show the Fletcher Henderson band how to swing, followed by stardom and a decade leading a big band. #blackpages #blackpagesbooks #blackliterature #blacklibrary #blackpower #knowledgeofself #godsandearths #nationofislam #blackman #blackwoman #hiphop #staywoke #blackcomics #blackculture #blackart #blackbooks #blackbusiness #rituals #blackmagic #blackrites #blackmentors
SIDNEY BECHET Cosmopolitan musician from youth, Sidney Bechet gave rise to the first serious instance of jazz criticism. In 1919, he was the clarinet soloist of the Southern syncopated Orchestra led by composer Will Marion Cook, who refused to use the word 'Jazz' but made a point of featuring Bechet. Swiss conductor Ernest Ansermet heard the orchestra several times in London and wrote about Bechet, "(He)can say nothing of his art, save that he follows his own way...perhaps the highway the whole world will swing Along tomorrow". A musical prodigy, Bechet was born in New Orleans, to a creole family in 1897. He joined the Exodus to Chicago in 1917, and work there with two celebrated Exiles, Trumpeter Freddie Keppard and pianist Tony Jackson. With Cook, he traveled to London, where he discovered the soprano saxophone, a more dominating instrument then the clarinet, and one which readily pronounced his trademark throbbing vibrato. Deported from Britain, for fighting in a hotel, Bechet move to New York, where pianist Clarence Williams made a point of recording him, most notably alongside Louis Armstrong: an early meeting of jazz Giants. However he was soon in trouble once again, and he returned to Europe, spending four years with the Black Revue, starring Josephine Baker. While Armstrong was making his classic recordings, his main rival as a jazz soloist was touring Europe and Russia. More trouble, this time prison, for a shooting in Paris, led eventually to a return to the US. Bechet worked steadily throughout the 1930s, Less in the Limelight than his talent deserved. #blackpages #blackpagesbooks #blackliterature #blacklibrary #blackpower #knowledgeofself #godsandearths #nationofislam #blackman #blackwoman #hiphop #staywoke #blackcomics #blackculture #blackart #blackbooks #blackbusiness #rituals #blackmagic #blackrites #blackmentors #dotheknowledge
DUKE ELLINGTON for about 50 years, Duke Ellington led an orchestra that toured the world and for which he composed most of the material. A favorite Choice amongst pundits for the title of greatest of all Jazz musicians, he was a supreme manipulator of orchestral sounds. Edward Kennedy Ellington was born in 1899 into a middle-class family in Washington. At first he inclined towards art as a career, but he drifted into music, and by the mid twenties found himself leading a group then called the washingtonians. The music he was asked to provide, notably at the famous Cotton Club, was intended to transport white Americans to the Deep South and into the depths of the African jungle. He backed the Cabaret turns, and when you hear pieces called the jungle Jamboree or 'song of the cotton field' it's easy to visualize the floor show. Ellington's genius laying exploiting an empirical approach to instrumental sound, characteristic of a music for which there are no rules, where lesser men in his position might ignore even suppress the individuality of their musicians. For instance, his early band included trumpeters Bubber Miley, a specialist in violently abrasive solo, and Arthur Whetsol, to embellish the tune with the kind of plangency that would, Ellington claim, send tears running down people's faces. Similarly, in the trombone section, he had Tricky Sam Nanton and the suave-toned Lawrence Brown. It seems so natural today for Ellington to have nominated Miley and Nanton for the jungle effects, while saving Whetsol for 'Mood Indigo'. #blackpages #blackpagesbooks #blackliterature #blacklibrary #blackpower #knowledgeofself #godsandearths #nationofislam #blackman #blackwoman #hiphop #staywoke #blackcomics #blackculture #blackart #blackbooks #blackbusiness #rituals #blackmagic #blackrites #blackmentors
That's how the government and these politicians treat us. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Naw, fam! You don't care about us!

WHEN WE SAY THAT CONDITIONS OF UNUSUAL STRESS RESULT IN THE NEED FOR LARGE AMOUNTS OF VITAMIN C, this simply amounts to saying that when the individual functions in a certain way, there will be a tendency to some sort of biochemical crisis which the presence of vitamin C in large quantities will help to alleviate. When we do not function in that particular way our vitamin C requirements are less. Even the British Naval Physicians of two centuries ago observe that not all the sailors on the scurvy struck ships came down with the disease. Some remained in good health despite the fact that their diets were exactly the same as those who fell ill. Obviously they were functioning in quite a different way from their sick mates. In view of the fact that large doses of Vitamin C May provide some relief to those who suffer from anxiety and psychological disturbances, it is interesting to note that back in the 1700s, Dr Lind made it a point to include not only lemon juice in his treatment of scurvy, but also the avoidance of tension and psychological stress. Clearly, there must be some difference in the way their metabolic Machinery is functioning for one person to use up more of a nutrient than another does. Increased use of B vitamins and C must have something to do with it increased susceptibility to stress. Stress is produced by job pressures, fatigue, psychological upsets, anxious situations and many other conditions. Stress is thought to cause biochemical changes to take place in the body and it has been said that when animals on seemingly adequate diet are subjected to stress widespread damage occurs in their bodies Certain of the B vitamins and vitamins c are called the anti stress vitamins and are taking increasingly to combat stress. From this perspective one begins to feel that stress is some sort of monster looming over head which can only be held at Bay by eating large quantities of vitamin pills. #blackpages #blackpagesbooks #blackliterature #blacklibrary #blackpower #knowledgeofself #godsandearths #nationofislam #blackman #blackwoman #hiphop #staywoke #blackcomics #blackculture #blackart #blackbooks #blackbusiness #rituals #blackmagic #blackrites #blackmen
VITAMIN C AND STRESS next to niacin, Vitamin C has probably been talked about most as a treatment for psychiatric disorders and nervous problems. As early as 1940 in Europe it was found that some schizophrenics excreted very little vitamin C in their urine, and when they were given large enough doses of it, half were soon well enough to go home. Even double blind Studies have demonstrated a response by psychotics to vitamin C, and linus pauling's test for urine excretion in such patients showed the same retention of vitamin C as it did for niacin. There are researchers who feel that the low Vitamin C levels seen in hospitalized schizophrenics have to do with the poor diet that is usually available, rather than the disease itself, but it has been shown that schizophrenics can require up 70,000 mg of vitamin C for complete saturation as opposed to only 4,000 mg for other people. This would seem to be more than could be accounted for by having had a poor diet. The total body content of ascorbic acid in the normal person is only about 1,500 mg and it is hard to believe that, even if this were totally depleted, 70,000 mg, nearly 50 times the amount, would be required for tissue saturation unless extraordinary amounts are being used. In fact, one researcher has concluded that on the average schizophrenics burn up ascorbic acid 10 times as rapidly as normal persons. It is generally thought that emotional stress and strain decrease body ascorbic acid levels when one responds to situations by becoming anxious.
