      10 Basic Things We All Can Do Right Now

      1. Learn about yourself, Your People, Your History, Your
      Civilization and Your Culture (start buying African-centered books,
      video tapes, audio tapes, etc., so that you will come to Know
      Yourself, Love Yourself and Be yourself).

      2. Stop inferiorizing yourself by imitating the appearance of
      others, and start accepting and respecting your own appearance by
      loving and wearing your hair the way it naturally grows, cherishing
      and keeping your skin color the way it naturally glows, and
      embracing and appreciating your physical features the way they
      naturally show.

      3. Select an African name for yourself and every member of your
      family, for through re-naming yourself you are taking one of the
      most important steps towards re-claiming yourself.

      4. Purchase African-made and African-oriented clothing for yourself
      and every member of your family, and wear them as often as possible.

      5. Wear African-centered jewelry such as necklaces, rings and
      bracelets that depict Africa, The Ankh, Nefertiti, etc., and wear
      them as often as possible.

      6. Keep a map of Africa and an African Flag (red, black and green)
      on display in your home as a constant acknowledgement and
      reinforcement of your identification with the People and Land of
      your origin.

      7. Stop smoking, drinking and using drugs (except for the treatment
      of legitimate medical conditions), and start treating your body like
      the sanctuary that it is.

      8. Understand and internalize the truth that All African People are
      One People, All African Land is One Land, and All African Knowledge
      is One Knowledge; and teach these principles to your children.

      9. Learn to always seek The Highest Truth (The Best Way) in all
      that you do in Life, and always recognize that knowledge and truth
      are infinite treasures that we must pursue on a constant basis for
      us to achieve progressive advancement and empowerment from
      generation-to-generation.

      10. Commit yourself to positive change, in thought and action, and
      start contributing on a consistent basis to the building and
      maintenance of institutions that are working for The Total Freedom
      and Independence of All African People throughout the world, and the
      re-building of Our Own Modern and Independent Civilization and
      Culture.

      If we as a group put this principles into action daily can you imagine what it would do for our self-esteem?!. You would see a sister walking down the street and cant do nothing but respect her. What is divine her in her would be divine in you because we would become reflections of our true nature. We would begin to realize our royal roots.....

      Well brother if you have to convince a sistah to wear Afrikan clothes and read Our-Story, she aint the one for you. . It's beyond me, how we have become so programed by Yt that when we see women that are really proud to be Afrikan (in culture and in deeds) we think of this as strange or a phenomenon. I'm waiting for the day when we start to love who we are, not who yt wants us to be.

      i definitely unite with this sentiment! and these are just the "basic" things...not the advanced level course!

      what i hear most often is "i'm in a process" which mean "leave me alone and quit pointing out stuff i need to do to be about Afrikan liberation"

      ppl get vry happy in whiteness...particularly the unmotivated, lazy, scared, etc...the "process" mentality as it is used is often the way to legitimize the whiteness and these characteristics that continue to allow it to stay in US...:s

      stay BlackNificent!
