"The Future Belongs To Those Who Prepare For It Today" -Malcom X

Imagine-Black Ice

 

"And Because I had been a hustler, I knew better than all whites knew, and better than nearly all the black leaders knew, that actually the most dangerous black man in America was the ghetto hustler. Why do I say this? The hustler, out there in the ghetto jungles, has less respect for the white power structure than any other Negro in North America. The ghetto hustler is internally restrained by nothing. He has no religion, no concept of mortality, no civil responsibility, no fear, of nothing. To survive, he is out there constantly preying upon others, probing for any human weakness like a ferret. The ghetto hustler is forever frustrated, restless, and anxious for some “action”. Whatever he undertakes, he commits himself to fully, absolutely. What makes the ghetto hustler yet more dangerous is his glamour image to the school dropout youth in the ghetto. These ghetto teenagers see the hell caught by their parents struggling to get somewhere, or see that they have given up struggling in the prejudiced, intolerant white man’s world. The ghetto teenager makes up their own minds that they would rather be like the hustler whom they see dressed sharp and flashing money and displaying no respect for anybody, or anything. So the ghetto youth become attracted to the hustler's worlds of dope, thievery, prostitution, and general crime and immorality."

Pac's Wisdom

 

“You don’t stick a knife in a man’s back nine inches and then pull it out six inches and say you’re making progress…no matter how much respect, no matter how much recognition, whites show toward me, as far as I am concerned, as long as it is not shown to everyone of our people in this country, it doesn’t exist for me.’

  • The only way we’ll get freedom for ourselves is to identify ourselves with every oppressed people in the world. We are blood brothers to the people of Brazil, Venezuela, Haiti, Cuba-yes Cuba too.”
