MALCOLM X: You have to be careful introducing the truth to the Black man who has never previously heard the truth about himself, his own kind…The Black brother is so brainwashed that he may even be repelled when he first hears the truth…The truth had to be dropped only a little bit at a time and you had to wait a while to let it sink in before advancing the next step.
HOSEA 4:6 [KJV]“My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge: because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you, that you will be no priest to me: seeing that you have forgotten the laws of your God, I will also forget your children.”
MALCOLM X“You don’t even know who you are… You don’t even know…that you are of a race of people of ancient civilizations and riches in gold and kings. You don’t even know your true family name, you wouldn’t recognize your true language if you heard it. You have been cut of [by enslavement] …from all true knowledge of your own kind.”
EDMUND BURKEPeople will not look forwardto posterity, who never lookbackward to their ancestors.
