"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)



“One single bit of information, if missing, incomplete, out of order or just plain wrong, has the potential to significantly alter thought processes, conclusions, decisions and behaviors, even when that one single logic entry exists in a sea of accuracy.”

Political Prisoners Of Democracy – The Angola Three In Louisiana

What's Most Important Is Not On Television

Via the powerful influence of television content, we believe we know a lot about a lot of things, when in fact, we only know a small portion about a little bit from a minority worldview.
(From, Television & Substance Abuse)

Under attack and don't know it
In a war and don't know it
Perhaps because, TV hasn't shown it

Here's a perfect example:

Lack Of Television Coverage

Hauling Up The Morning With Herman Wallace

Ancestor Herman Wallace can now help us more in the fight to restore civility to society.

Political Prisoners

All of us are subject to be political prisoners if we speak too much against injustice. Speaking freely is not so guaranteed and not so free. President Barack Obama alluded to this in his speech at Madiba's Memorial Service beginning at the 12:40 mark when he said, two things:

1. “Around the world today, men and women are still imprisoned for their political beliefs...”

2. “There are too many leaders who claim solidarity with Madiba's struggle for freedom but do not tolerate dissent from their own people.”

Listen to the entire speech here.

This is history and is still the current status quo national policy in a world that television and other media tells us is a global society. This is used to falsely imply ubuntu, but has nothing to do with it. Nothing's changed except forms of oppression. Colonialism and enslavement have been replaced by capitalism and a supporting cast of institutions that make inhabitants dependent on these oppressive regimes.
