Malcolm NEVER came South to fight for Black rights, instead he kept his behind "Up North" where it was safe.
I have NO respect for him at all.
Malcolm X did go into Selma, Alabama. He did advocate self defense units in the South too. I'm just saying. Blacks were heavily oppressed in the South and the North. The reactionary Klan was in the North too. It was not safe in the North too when police murdered innocent Brothers and Sisters and discriminated against black people too. Malcolm X famously said the following words:

"...I am not a Republican nor a Democrat, nor an American, and got sense enough to know it. I am one of the 22 million Black victims of the Democrats, and one of the 22 million Black victims of the Republicans, and one of the 22 million Black victims of Americanism.... You and I have never seen Democracy, all we've seen is hypocracy.... If you go to jail, so what. If you are Black, you were born in jail. If you are Black, you were born in jail, in the North as well as the South. Stop talking about the South. As long as you are South of the Canadian border, you are South."

Fool, one last time, it does not matter if you have an ID or not. With that kind of law on the books, they can always say you do not have an ID whether you have one or not. If you have one, they can always say that it is not good enough. This is a blemish on it.
For example, I was headed to the bank to cash my paycheck once; and got caught in the rain. I got wet and all my documents got wet. When I got to the bank they said they could not cash my check because it had been "defaced". I went to the next bank and there was no problem. What I am saying is having an ID is subjective. It is not objective. One person can say you have one and the next person can say you do not have proper ID. But the real problem is power politics. If they do not want black people to vote, the can and will always find an excuse to say your ID is faulty. And there is absolutely NOTHING you can do about it once that law is on the books. If you go to court the election will be over before you can do any of that.
But it is not about IDs at all. If they pass voter ID, they can and will pass other laws such as literacy tests. There are many ways they can block us from voting if they have the will to do so. If I was white, I would dang certain move to block another Obama from being elected. I am black and yes, I am thinking about helping the whites to block fools like you ,Savant and that crazy cult worshipper Sankofa from voting. It is fools like y'all who elected Obozo in the first place.
But you are too stupid to see that? You are a stupid assss troll and you are wasting my time
Yeah I did vote for Obama...the first time.

The truth is voter Id law is not really going to affect Blacks much beacuse most who want to vote do have photo IDs at least 95%. It a bogus issue, the real purpose is to allow illegals to vote and others to be able to vote more than once.

You are a paranoid fool. There is no way we are going back to a Jim Crow era mentality. It will never be allowed to happen!

No. For me, it is scientific reality. If you want rights, you MUST tae responsibility. The civil Rights Movement was about millions of people taking responsibility for the oppression of Africans and deciding to change things. Now that you younger generation have the vote, you must take responsibility to keep I. In order to keep it, you must exercise your power with wisdom. If you do not you will lose it and I will be the first to help to take it away from you. Obama f*cked up real bad when he bombed the Great Man Made River. That sort of thing scare te daylights out of white people. When they see it, they think, "if them n-words will allow Obozobama to blow up that there Great Man Made River, they will allow him to do anything. He might start blowing up some white folks next." And they are correct. They are right to ne scared because Obozo has now attempted the same stupid thing in Somalia, Syria, Egypt ad now Ukraine. Now, it is affecting white people directly. A lot of white Americans have friends and relatives in Ukraine. And yes. I have aligned and allied myself with those whites. When Obozo have them bombarded I protest louder and harder than the whites protest. I know that when we defeat Obozo in Ukraine he will automatically be defeated all over Asia and Africa. And if it means taking away your righto vote, I will help to take away your right to vote.

They heard about it when Obozo bombed it. I know they heard about because white folks went up I arms o protest. If white people had not protested, Obozo would have completely destroyed it ( http://humanrightsinvestigations.org/2011/07/... ) How can anyone, any educated or intelligent person not know about the greatest project since the Great Pyramids?

Maybe some folks in England knew about it. The report is from the BBC. But I maintian that most Americans do not. and that your imagined conspiracies do not really exist. And the only reason you know about it is because you all up in the Arab man's azz, and beleived Gaddafi's Pan Africanism bull crap when that mofo was as racist as could be..

"Tomorrow Europe might no longer be European, and even black, as there are millions who want to come in," said Col Gaddafi, quoted by the AFP news agency. We don't know what will happen, what will be the reaction of the white and Christian Europeans faced with this influx of starving and ignorant Africans,We don't know if Europe will remain an advanced and united continent or if it will be destroyed, as happened with the barbarian invasions."

"Gaddaffi was a racist. Arabs racism and religious imperialism is responsible for the destruction of African civilizations. The Arabs will never respect Black Africans and will continue to use their henchmen in Sudan and elsewhere to continue the extermination of Black Africans so they can depopulate the continent of Blacks and occupy it, as they have done in Northern Africa. When one looks at a map of the world and sees Sudan, Somalia and a number of Black nations suddenly classified as "Arab", one has to wonder what are Africans/Blacks worldwide doing to stop this swollowing of African lands, extermination of African people, enslavement and destroying of African men, women and children, and imposing of non-African religions and culture that is totally against African traditions on Africans. What does that say, that we as Blacks will follow the cultures and religions of people like sheep, simply because we think their religions are better?"

The Great Man Made River is the greatest project since the great Pyramid. to learn about it all you have to do is learn about the Great Wonders of the world. Sure you and your ilk did not know about it. That is why I am in this forum: to enlighten people and encourage them to pay attention and learn.

No. I know about the pyramids and the Great Wall of China, etc. We had to memorize all of them in elementary school. It was required.

But as a Pan-Africanist, I also know about the Aswan Dam Project and the Volta River Dam Project as attempts to grow more food in Africa. My own political Party, the Convention People's Party built Volta River. And we were inspired in part by the example set by the Egyptian Revolution before anybody ever heard of Qaddafi. In fact Qaddafi was inspired by us, not the other way around.

Furthermore, we as Nkrumahists are very proud of the fact that we helped to inspire both India and China and Qaddafi. Qaddafi learned from us, not the other way around. Idiot. Why do you always assume that the black man is a follower and not a leader? In fact, China copied its entire economic theory from us and it has made China the fastest growing economy in the history of the world while Africa sand American blacks are still stuck on stupid. And the Chinese are proud to have learned from our Convention People's Party.( http://conventionpeoplesparty.org/ ) And so is India. Plus there is Cuba and Venezuela and Brazil and many others who know history.

I have many Arab friends and I have never detected any racism in any of them. In fact, I find the Muslims fighting racism more than any other group in history.

The Worse President in history Bombed the Great Manmade River

In the light of the current world developments, there is more to the NATO destruction of the Great Man-Made River Project than being an isolated war crime. The United Nations Environment Program 2007 describes a so-called “water for profit scheme”, which actively promotes the privatization and monopolization for the world’s water supplies by multinational corporations. Meanwhile the World Bank recently adopted a policy of water privatization and full-cost water pricing, with one of its former directors, Ismail Serageldin, stating:

“The wars of the 21st century will be fought over water”.

gaddafi_gmmr3In practice this means that the United Nations in collaboration with the World Bank plans to secure water resources to use at their disposal, and that once they totally control these resources, the resources become assets to be reallocated back to the enslaved nations for a price. Those prices will rise while the quality of the water will decrease, and fresh water sources will become less accessible to those who desperately need it. Simply put, one of the most effective ways to enslave the people is to take control of their basic daily needs and to take away their self-sufficiency.

How this relates to the NATO destruction of Gaddafi’s Great Man-Made River Project in July 2011 can be best illustrated by the Hegelian Dialectic, popularly known as the concept of Problem -> Reaction -> Solution. In this case, by bombing the water supply and the pipes factory, a Problem was created with an ulterior motive, namely to gain control over the most precious part of Libya’s infrastructure.

Subsequently a Reaction in the form of an immediate widespread need was provoked as a result of the Problem, since as much as 70% of the Libyans depend on the Great Man-Made River for personal use as well as for the watering of the land. A month after the destruction of the Great Man-Made River, more than half of Libya was without running water. Ultimately a predetermined Solution was implemented: in order to have access to fresh water, the inhabitants of the war-torn country had no choice but to fully depend on – and thus to be enslaved to – the NATO-installed government.

Idiot, I have enough hard cold evidence at my disposal as we speak to prove that Islam started in Africa and that it returned to Africa at the beginning of its official Foundation. This may be difficult to penetrate your brain-dead head. And I know that my research has been and remains profound and ground breaking. In other words, my thesis makes me one of the most important valuable African and Islamic historian on earth today. And I have this in my notes although they are not yet for publications. My fellowship begins shortly. But because my book will be published soon, my PHD can be awarded within months. It is not like I already know my thesis. It is more a matter of finding the time to get it ready for publication.

Furthermore, I can probably qualify for Honorary PHD status.

There is some debate about the numbers. Ronald Segal in ISLAM'S BLACK SLAVES estimates that the number of slaves taken by the Christian West and the Muslim East are more or less equal...But Assdurrratin refuses to acknowledge that a slave trade among Muslims even existed. Considering the millions of Africans lost the Muslim Arab trade, denial of the Muslim slave trades is as odious and disingenuous as the denial of the Atlantic trade, or the denial of the the Nazi holocaust or the mass murders of Stalin.

You are a lying idiot who has been brainwashed by lying zionists like Segal and Chancellor Williams. I do my own thinking and my own analysis. I looked at Segal's book and it does not seem credible to me. Segal's thesis is impossible because although there were a few slaves in places like the extreme southern corners of Somalia where there was a good deal of Christian influence from Zanzibar and Kenya, I have never seem any evidence produced from the Somali nation as such. I attribute this to the little known fact that that Somali nation is a 100% Muslim nation. Thus, my analysis is highly nuanced. It is conceivable that side issues have always been there. But if a few Christians hold slaves in what we know as Somalia today, it proves nothing against the Muslim nation of Somali nomadic clans. Generally Somalis are nomads. So how the eff can nomads carry around a bunch of slaves as they move from place to place? That does not fit into rational or logical thinking. Segal has not explained this as far as I know. It is impossible to make sense of it.

Nomads have no need for slaves. If they had one he would be immediately sold at the nest town. Farmers enslave people, not nomads. And not Islam although some individuals Muslims were undoubtedly involved. Islam itself is based on GOD's War against slavery established in the Mosaic Law: let my people go. Similar is in the Quran. But it is in such complex and complicated Arabic that idiots like you could never decipher it and comprehend it. How can anyone be as stupid as you are, Savant?

And too lazy. I am a high producer. I read the news every day which explains which I have so many new ideas in my head. It has taken me a lot longer than five years to develop my thesis. No one else has committed to solve this problem because it is so difficult. But if GOD gives me enough time to complete my manuscript I will solve. I am not the only one aware that the problem exists. So when people encounter me, they often give me s\mall but extremely valuable little tips and clues. For example, I has always assume that I would have to spend a lot of time in the Middle east and North Africa. But a colleague told me recently that there is 100,000 piece collection near me that I need to see. The archivist is looking right now to see if he his collection covers the time period that I need.

But the real issue with your sorry butt is the African origins of Islam. That is not all that hard to prove. use the brain that GOD gave you and you can see that Islam is Monotheism. Everybody agrees that Monotheism started in Africa. Nuff said.

But you are correct about one thing: I need to stop wasting my time on idiots like you here in Topix. That is why I put so many of you bums on ignore. if you cannot engage me in an intelligent discussion, het lost.
