nnq : day seven

by C5Damani (old head of the movement)

“How refreshing to consume words that have meaning and depth. In the great and honored tradition of wisdom literature and if there is anything that could be called instant wisdom, ‘nigga notes & quotes’ fills that void. This book may be the finest book of quotes, anecdotes, sayings and sage bromides any people struggling for human dignity and liberation will ever read.”

when describing “nigga notes & quotes”*

– day seven –

“…we must become aware of the contradictions, the conflicts of interests, the contradictions inside oneself and the contradictions in other people. It will teach us to be less harsh with others, to not regard them as lesser than oneself… because we will find their difficulties inside our self. We will begin to understand that people don’t consciously work against their own interests. Many times people work against their interests unconsciously. The problem then is to lift consciousness.”

Huey P. Newton

“…once upon a time there were some so-called revolutionaries who called for the gun. They got the gun, then began shooting each other.”

“…the colonized will often turn the legitimate rage they feel against oppression inwards by attacking each other.”

Franz Fanon

“…maybe the whole “Black thing” is learning to care about one another.”

author forgotten

*Since most of these quotes were collected prior to 1985 it means some of the authors of these quotes, I have simply forgotten… blame old age! (Ha) When the author is known, I will indicate it. When an author is not indicated, please forgive me and understand. Furthermore, this collection of quotes was first started as a personal endeavor never meant to be shared publicly thus the reason why some authors may not be indicated.
