Martin Luther King Jr.(Forgotten Quotes)

MLK1...

They say you can tell what a nation stands for by looking at who they see as heroes.  I always think about that when Martin Luther King’s birthday comes around.  Does America truly cherish his ideals?  I don’t really think so. Martin Luther King was a very complex individual.  They say he stood up against injustice and racism…but he had numerous sexual affairs as well.  Can a man be socially moral and still cheat on his wife?  I guess it’s somewhat possible.  But after doing years of research on MLK I found out that he had an idealistic worldview but he wasn’t perfect.  But we all know there are many famous men who cheated on their wives(John F Kennedy,Bill Clinton,Donald Trump).  But this post isn’t about that.  In this post I wanted to put up some quotes that often get overlooked.  King’s views changed from when he made the “I Have a Dream” speech in 1963.  As the Vietnam War waged on and all the racial strife continued…his idealistic views started to diminish over time.  He started to view the racist European society a little bit more realistically. I think Malcolm X understood the European mentality a little better.  But King was getting there before he was killed in 1968. Here’s a nice list of forgotten quotes.  Shout out to Abagond  for pulling up some of thee quotes.

MLK3...

“The white man does not abide by the law… His police forces are the ultimate mockery of law.”
“There aren’t enough white persons in our country who are willing to cherish democratic principles over privilege.”
“Three hundred years of humiliation, abuse and deprivation cannot be expected to find voice in a whisper.”
“True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar.”
“We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality.”
“We must see now that the evils of racism, economic exploitation and militarism are all tied together.”

“But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society.”
“A riot is the language of the unheard,”
“A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth.”
“All of us are on trial in this troubled hour.”
“America is going to hell if we don’t use her vast resources to end poverty and make it possible for all God’s children to have the basic necessities of life.”

MLK2...

“I am sorry to have to say that the vast majority of white Americans are racists, either consciously or unconsciously.”
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly.”
“It is cruel jest to tell a bootless man that he ought to lift himself up by his own bootstraps”
“No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.”
“Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.”

MLK..

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
“Poverty is one of the most urgent items on the agenda of modern life.”
“The curse of poverty has no justification in our age. It is socially as cruel and blind as the practice of cannibalism.”
“The evils of capitalism are as real as the evils of militarism and evils of racism.”

The Fail of Modern Civilization in Afrika

African people..

Civilization, according to modern definition, is the stage of human social development and organization that is considered most advanced. People, today, often equate things like the modern railroad, tel-LIE-vision or even social media, with progress and with civilization”. Academicians, politicians and social scientists, ascribe human development to advancement in many areas that tend to meet the ever changing standard of civilization, based on what you have materially and what can give you material comfort, as opposed to what gives you intrinsic comfort. What gives you the kind of purpose that satisfies your basic emotional and spiritual needs. Many, whether those practicing reLIEgion or not, have difficulty in explaining what the spirit really means, in a way that encompass, people from all societies, ideologies and view point. So the big headed scientists in the ivory towers of academia, use terms like progress, enlightenment, culture, refinement, sophistication, to fool us into beLIEving that civilization is a measure of what we build, own or posses, instead of what or who we are in relations to nature and natures laws. In the worldview of the west, they and all that they deem admirable are seen as  “a higher stage of civilization”, where anything not of western (white) imagery, creation or stamp of approval is deemed primitive and unsophisticated.

Africa Colonization

Note: interesting enough, one classic example of “civilization” is the acquirement of or increased knowledge. Yet the knowing of things, that can be found in a book(s) or through social media is literally non existent, because the deep extensive knowledge that can inform, from these mediums have been exchanged for superficial ones. Take for instance the word sophisticate: ” Is to make (someone or something) more sophisticated ( redundant here, because sophistication has not been defined). Or a person with much worldly experience and knowledge of fashion and culture. in the book Sugar Blues, Author William Duffy, details society’s addiction to the most explosive poison in the 20th century. SUGAR!. In the book he mentions also, that the term sophistication came about when peasants, objecting to the nobility’s penchant for sugaring, bread, cakes and adult beverages, would disparagingly call it sophistication….to separate the corrupted nobility from the honest peasants. in other words adding a poisonous ingredient to an already acceptable and purer batch!

Even still, modern sophistication and civilization is the process by which a society or place reaches an advanced stage of social development and organization. How then is it that current civilization, based on the western model, whether Capitalism, socialism or Communism, can still have massive break down in various societies. Modern western society is now the gold standard for civilized behavior, yet  at the same time it exemplify the worst in excess around sex, drugs and all manner of debauchery. In Afrika, as in the Afrikan diaspora, modern civilization, that is considered superior to what many archaeologist and anthropologists have recorded as, materially different ( not worse) and simple, in ancient times, compared to now has failed in adding value to people’s lives outside of materialism. Why has modern/western civilization failed to make much of an inroad into the quality of Life of the lives of the Afrikans?

It seems as if the more we interact with the European, the further we are removed from our natural state. And the further we are removed from our natural state, the less hue-man we have become. Every culture is governed by what is called a paradigm. A paradigm is a a typical example or pattern of something; a model by which we can identify a particular culture. in the beginning there was one culture. The Afrikan culture. The Afrika cultural paradigm was/is about group associations or relationships. In that very sense, what affects one, affects all associated in the group and has a profound effect on ones relationship to ones ancestors and even ones surrounding. Thus in Afrikan culture, laws like the 42 negative confessions, are guidelines that reinforces the Afrikan paradigm model.

Africa Then..

As Afrikan population and culture began to grow from its initial size, migration and emigration became a reality through curiosity or necessity. Eventuality those who emigrated or migrated away from the Afrikan physical center, soon attempted to re-integrate physically, but without the same cultural or spiritual overstanding of association, relationships or laws. When the Asiatics, the environmentally created progeny of the emigrated, who were the first to try and re-integrate back into Afrika, found that water and oil don’t mix, they sought then to interfere with the more civilized culture of the Kimityu. This caused numerous wars of conquest, reconquest and further displacements. The next wave of people who tried to reintegrate back into the Afrikan center, but like the first, on their own terms, the Eurasians ( western Asians or Europeans) in the form of the Hyksos, eventually triggered more wars of conquest and reconquest which lead to the kind of soul searching that the original people on the planet never thought they had to deal with.

Lacking the kind of aggressive and violent energy to constantly be at war with the Hyksos and Asiatics, the Afrikans decided to teach the Asians and Eurasians how to associate and relate to others in what is now seen as a fruitless attempt to reintegrate them back into the fold of hue-manity. Unfortunately culture is what you do. It becomes who you are and who you are is dictated by your environment. Like the harsh freezing conditions of the Steppes of Asia or the caves and mountains of the Caucus regions. Modern scientist have stated that negativity, just like positivity is passed down through your DNA and through your sperm and or eggs. They postulated that once reinforced, these traumas become who you are, especially if augmented by additional trauma in your immediate surroundings.

After centuries of invasions, wars, cultural misappropriations and loss of the values that once made Afrika the beacon of light and a lightening rod of jealousy, the children of Afrika was forced into a cultural paradigm not of their choosing and not to their benefit. We thus have developed a disassociated spirit, where the disconnection or separation from who we are as Afrikan has reduced us to a savage like state. A perfect imitation of those we have grown to emulate, yet without the necessary emotional context or even DNA state, to sustain it. The result is an Afrika and an Afrikan diaspora, where vices and violence is barely covered up, or appear to even be of interest to those mostly affected by it.

Africa Now..

Rest assured that the same vices and violence that afflict Afrika, came from the mountains of the Caucuses and the Steppes of Asia has similar impact on the lives of those originators of the mindless violence and vices we see today. They however, are acting in their cultural paradigm. individualism, competitiveness and violence as a communication mode.Like the mindless drone like attributes of the Asian group think, and scavenger like interaction with the land and nature of Asia. All these shows they are more comfortable in their paradigm. But we are not, and thus the relating disassociation has lead us to a cognitive imbalance, affecting body, mind and soul. The body, mind and soul are the three things that ALL Afrikans consider interchangeable. Whether they can articulate it or not. Its in the DNA, but is subsumed by the environment of foreign conditioning.

This we come to, is how modern civilization has failed Afrika. Let’s overstand that the cave savage, will be his savage self, because it is his nature. His truest nature. he was the one who divided and destroyed Afrikan culture from without, but before it was destroyed from with out, it had to have already become decayed from within. We allowed lesser beings to interact with us on a level where they stole our cultural birthright. Stole our enlightenment. And stole our values. It was not enough that we taught them how to walk upright. How not to savage each other. We also interbred with them, hoping that our seed could be the balm to their more savage nature.

The main thing that started Afrika on that slippery slop into destruction and eventually regression is the (a) same thing that made us achieve great things. Our compassion. We felt compelled, due to our association with the universe to re-incorporate people, that showed us they are disagreeable to be around. (b) The need for some lesser leaders of integrity to show off to foreigners. Dr. Claude Anderson talks about this in his lecture and book of the same name…inappropriate behaviour. (c) the Two different, yet similar types of Ma’afa’s from the Christians of Europe and the Muslims of Arabia, not only  devastated millions of people, but recreated a brand new type of entity on the planet. The kneegrow. Slavery and enslavement was a part of hue-man and savage history and ourstory. However the kind of slavery that was enacted secularly and reLIEgiously against one set of people, the Afrikan, was and still remains a unique experience on the planet. Out of this the modern kneegrow was born. The modern kneegrow is a manufactured being, created in the mind of his oppressor, with the explicit purpose to make the once civilized beings a thing not worth much.

Today, despite what intellectuals, reLIEgious and or academicians state the Afrikan world is less civilized than in pre-colonial Afrika. We may be more sophisticated, however we lack the very thing that was stated, which are demarcations of a high culture. How women, children and the environment is treated. Scientist, social scientist, psychologists…all have mentioned that the an abused will take on the abusers mentality. But not having the personality of the abuser, ends up a more macabre version of the abuser. This is the cognoscente deficiency of the Afrikan man taking on a western social behavior. And this is how and why modern civilization has failed Afrika. The only way we can ever attain equilibrium, is to throw off the inflamed shirt of western civilization and become Afrikan once again. The current path Afrika and Afrikans across the planet are traveling, puts us at a disadvantage, where those who should be our supplicants have become dispensers of our pain, our failures and our eventual destruction.
