Class #2 "The Choice For Black Individuals"

One key to achieving Black Nationhood is being able to recognize barely detectable realities that can reduce Our effectiveness. One such reality, oh so huge, is negative energy.
There are two major types of energy that will come into play in Black People's drive toward nationhood; (1) potential energy, and (2) kinetic energy. For the purpose of politics, the power game, Our potential energy is effective to the degree that Our enemies feel mentally and spiritually intimidated by Us, and Our kinetic energy is effective to the degree that Our enemies have been physically impacted on by Our activities. Our potential energy is not just a matter of what We are capable of doing, but of what others think We are capable of doing. If Our enemies think Our potential energy is greater than it actually is, then all the better. If, however, Our enemies think Our potential energy is less than it actually is, We must demonstrate the contrary. We must ask Ourselves, "How do Our enemies get the impression that Our potential energy is less than it actually is?" We will discover that the answer is either (1) Our kinetic energy has been low or (2) Our potential energy has been giving off lazy vibes.
When I say Our kinetic energy has been low, I mean We have gotten into the habit of consistently underachieving and striving for less than We deserve. Dominated people consistently underachieve because they are miseducated, brainwashed and taught to doubt their potential. This is very obvious among Black People in the United States, particularly the better "educated". Objectives that normal people would seek as a matter of course, Black "leaders" think of as impossible to achieve. A Black Nation? "Never in a million years," they say. "White people will not let Black People do that," they say. "Black People can't stay united long enough to accomplish that," they say. They say such things because they have been taught to doubt Black People's potential. This doubt generates negative energy and defeats a person's desire to persevere.

To understand what I mean when I say Our potential energy has been giving off lazy vibes, it is necessary to understand that every thing has a particle nature and a wave nature. The particle nature is what people are aware of and accustomed to seeing. The wave nature can not be seen or touched by human beings, but its presence can be felt and responded to. I'm talking about "vibes" here. Yes, vibes are real, and they can be either powerful or weak. If they are weak, people will pick up on them, sense that you are lacking something critical (like confidence or belief in your mission), doubt your ability to succeed and place obstacles in your path without fear of serious retaliation on your part.
Genuine Black Nationalists don't give off weak or doubt-filled vibes (negative energy). In order to enable genuine Black Nationalists to maximize their effectiveness, every Black individual must therefore:
(1) Be honest with yourself. If you prefer integration, civil rights or the white way, or any other non-Black way, then that is your prerogative. However, be intelligent enough to not interfere with the efforts of Black People who prefer the Black way. Every Black individual does not have to be involved in Black Nationalist activities for Black Nationhood to become a reality. Face up to where you stand and stand there; but don't stand in the way of Black Nationalism.
(2) Realize that Black Nationalism is a lifetime commitment. You can't sign up for two years or make a commitment for a special project. Even after the initial objective has been realized, the work of Black nationalists will continue because of attacks from antagonistic forces within and outside of the Black Nation.

(3) Prepare yourself to deal with unusual levels of mental, spiritual and physical hardships, criticisms and pressures--- because the white status quo is going to create every opportunity possible to make your life miserable. However, being a sincere Black Nationalist does not mean you have to live a life of poverty. You can live a decent life without selling out to the status quo. Unfortunately, most "educated" Blacks will not satisfy themselves with a decent standard of living. They want fame, fortune and recognition; and to acquire those illusions in the United States of America, a Black person has to sell out to white interests.
(4) Seek others like yourself. Concentrated energy is the most effective energy, and its collective power far exceeds the sum of its components. If you allow your surroundings to fragment your energy level, or allow others to sidetrack you, you could turn out being detrimental instead of beneficial to Black Nationalism. Contribute to and feed on the energy of those who believe in Black Nationalism and possess the independent drive to seek it. Within such quarters, formidable support and success are found.
(5) Be prepared to be taught, be prepared to learn, be prepared to teach, be prepared to follow, be prepared to lead and be prepared to create something new. Be prepared to seize the time, make the most of each opportunity, and make a meaningful impact. Be prepared to repel the naysayers, overcome the resistance and make the world recognize your legitimacy. A determined, well prepared mind generates potential energy, builds powerful vehicles and deploys the kinetic energy needed to get the job done.
A Black Nationalist does not need to engage in useless debates with non Black Nationalists. A Black Nationalist does not need to convince non Black Nationalists of anything. A Black Nationalist does not need to adhere to anybody else's values or standards. All We need to do is be about the business of seeking independence for those Blacks in the United States who are intelligent enough to value it.
