"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.”

African Anecdote | 2 Jackasses Deny Egypt Is In Africa

This is a true account. Dr. Yosef ben-Jochannan went into the Metropolitan Museum in New York where they have a very fine Egyptian Collection. Dr. Ben was greeted by a young lady at the front desk.
Young Lady: Sir, what can I do for you?
Dr. Ben: I would like to visit the African Collection.
Young Lady: Sir, we do not have an African Collection.
Dr. Ben: I meant to say, Egyptian Collection.
Young Lady: Oh yes! We have an Egyptian Collection but the ancient Egyptians were not African.
Dr. Ben: [pulls out a map and shoves it in the girl's face] Young Lady here's a map of Africa and there's Egypt. Wouldn't you say Egypt was in Africa?
Young Lady: I could say so.
Dr. Ben: Do you say so?
Young Lady: No!
Dr. Ben: Young lady you are a jackass.
Young Lady: [became hysterical and hollered for the manager. The manger came running out.]
Manager: What's the trouble?
Young Lady: Mr. Manager this man just called me a jackass.
Manager: [to Dr. Ben] What's the problem?
Dr. Ben: [tells the manager the story and shows the manager the map] Wouldn't you say Egypt is a part of Africa?
Manager: Well you could say so.
Dr. Ben: Do you?
Manager: No!
Dr. Ben: You're also a jackass.

The young lady and the manager both show signs of poisoning:
1. Mental Illness.
2. False Notions.
3. Closed-mindedness.
4. All information points to human origins in Africa.
