Many of us are very familiar with the falling out of revolutionary leaders Malcolm X and Elijah Muhammad but few know that they made up prior to Malcolm’s assassination.
Here is a audio hidden away from the world of the two respectful leaders settling their differences. After listening to the sincere conversation, a million questions will develop in your mind.
When I heard the recording, emotions filled my heart and soul because it was a heavy relief lifted off of my shoulders. I say that mainly because, millions of people were lead to believe Nation Of Islam was the cause of Malcolm X’s death. This was never believed by me. I can pretty much imagine the ones responsible for the death of our ancestor but for now, let’s just keep that to ourselves for safety reasons.
The truth will always come to the light and there is no way around it. The nation can not be stopped.
Stacey Dash’s Solution To Oscars Controversy: “Cancel BET And Black History Month”
A few of the precocious children asked if Dash’s wish was even legal and inquired on whether or not Kanye West is aware of his former “All Falls Down” video co-star’s statement. Throughout the 60-second visual, the kids also exclaim their excitement to celebrate their rich culture.
“It forces us to talk about our amazing history and it didn’t begin with slavery, no negativity, no stereotypes, all excellence because that’s who and what we are,” they said.
Source: Revolutionary Mindset- Despite receiving an honorary Oscar at last year’s Governor’s Awards, Spike Lee posted on Instagram on Martin Luther King’s birthday Monday, saying he and his wife would not be attending the Oscar ceremony.
Lee’s statement said, “We Cannot Support It And Mean No Disrespect To My Friends, Host Chris Rock and Producer Reggie Hudlin, President Isaacs And The Academy. But, How Is It Possible For The 2nd Consecutive Year All 20 Contenders Under The Actor Category Are White? And Let’s Not Even Get Into The Other Branches. 40 White Actors In 2 Years And No Flava At All. We Can’t Act?! WTF!!” It continues, “Dr. King Said ‘There Comes A Time When One Must Take A Position That Is Neither Safe, Nor Politic, Nor Popular But He Must Take It Because Conscience Tells Him It’s Right.’” He then lays out what he sees as the reason for the problem: “As I See It, The Academy Awards Is Not Where The ‘Real’ Battle Is. It’s In The Executive Office Of The Hollywood Studios And TV And Cable Networks. This Is Where The Gate Keepers Decide What Gets Made And What Gets Jettisoned To ‘Turnaround’ Or Scrap Heap. People, The Truth Is We Ain’t In Those Rooms And Until Minorities Are, The Oscar Nominees Will Remain Lilly White.”
Jada took time out on MLK day as well in order to remind us to never beg and always keep our dignity.

It’s becoming much too clear that we are not being respected IN our Arts and talents. It’s time to make a change.
According to USA Today,According to a spokesman for the South African Department of Home Affairs, rapper Mos Def, who now goes by the name Yasiin Bey, was arrested at Cape Town International Airport for trying to leave the country on an illegal ‘World Passport’ document.
The rapper and his family has been given 14 days to relocate allegedly.
What’s even more confusing about this entire ordeal is, Yasiin is an American citizen, so why on earth would they not allow him back into the States?
The accusations are not adding up and his arrest seems bogus. Good luck to our brother, Mos Def.
Time and time again, we attempt to block out all ignorant discriminatory behavior either by different races, countries, governments and religions but it’s there.
