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

Updated on December 29, 2010

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."

Tupac's Wisdom

  • “Truth is on the side of the Oppressed”
  • “If you don’t sand for something you fall for anything”
  • "You’re not to be so blind with patriotism that you can’t face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it”
  • “My alma mater was books, a good library….I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satifys my curiosity.”
  • “I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it is for of against. I’m a human being, first and fore most, and as such I’m for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.”
  • “Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.”
  • “People don’t realize how a man’s whole life can be changed by one book.”

-Malcom X

 

  • “How can you thank a man for what’s already yours? How then can you thank him for giving you only part of what is yours?”
  • “We can not think of being acceptable to others until we have first proven acceptable to ourselves.”
  • “A wise man can play the part of a clown, but the clown can’t play the part of a wise man.”
  • The media’s most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power, Because they control the minds of the masses.’
  • “Hence I have no mercy or compassion in me for a society that will crush people, and then penalize then for not being able to stand up under the weight.”

"One God! One Aim! One Destiny!" -Marcus Garvey

 

  • “If you have no critics you’ll likely have no success.”
  • “Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery.”
  • “Sometimes you have to pick the Gun up to put the Gun down”
  • “Early in my life, I learned that if you want something, you had better make some noise.”
  • “We need more light about each other. Light creates understanding, understanding creates love, love creates patience, and patience creates unity.”
  • “If you’re not ready to die for it, take the word freedom out of your vocabulary.”
  • “Usually when people are sad, They don’t do anything. They just cry over their condition. But when the get angry, they bring about change.”

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.”
  • “You’ll get freedom by letting your enemy know that you’ll do anything to get it. Then you’ll get it. It’s the only way you’ll get it.”
  • “Once one is motivated no one can change more completely that the man who has been at the bottom. I call myself the best example of that.”
  • “As long as your convince you have never done anything, you can never do anything.”
  • “To have once been a criminal is no disgrace. To remain a criminal is the disgrace.”

  • “Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.”
  • “People don’t realize how a man’s whole life can be changed by one book.”
  • “If you have no critics you’ll likely have no success.”
  • “Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery.”
  • “Sometimes you have to pick the Gun up to put the Gun down”
  • “Early in my life, I learned that if you want something, you had better make some noise.”
  • “We need more light about each other. Light creates understanding, understanding creates love, love creates patience, and patience creates unity.”
  • “If you’re not ready to die for it, take the word freedom out of your vocabulary.”
  • “Usually when people are sad, They don’t do anything. They just cry over their condition. But when the get angry, they bring about change.”
  • “How can you thank a man for what’s already yours? How then can you thank him for giving you only part of what is yours?”
  • “We can not think of being acceptable to others until we have first proven acceptable to ourselves.”
  • “A wise man can play the part of a clown, but the clown can’t play the part of a wise man.”
