    Hey everybody!
    Iīve read every single post now, and I want to show gratitude to all of you!
    While reading this thread Iīve found out a lot of things Iīve never thouhgt about, you see, I live in Sweden and have only a little knowledge of how things are outside my country. Iīm also fairly new to the spiritual teachings you guys have presented, and I want to thank you for the book-titles which are brought up. I didnīt even know about The Wu Tang manual!!!

    Ps: I love this forum! Ds

    ...One thing though, Iīve been checking up a little bit of The Nation of Gods and Earths ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nation_of_Gods_and_Earths ). I found a lot of it very interesting. But I think I need more some light on the teachings on race before I go deeper. Am I a pre-design evil product made by a psycho scientist? That doesnīt make any sense in my ears, īcause I donīt feel evil, and all my life Iīve been trying to do good things, and my friends too - no matter what color. I admire the 5 procenters care for the dumb, deaf & blind. But I donīt believe that the 10 % are all white... More like 8 %
    I have much love and respect for Africa because thatīs where we all originated from!
    But to say that one race is under another... Well that sounds very much like a certain asshole around the 30īs.

    I have read the great posts of LordReveal and you others, but I would really appretiate if youīd like to enlighten me about that... Am I welcome to take part of the teachings?
    Peace!

    Yeah this is what it's all about. Peace to all who have dropped jewels of knowledge on this thread. Very interesting. That's what I love best about the Wu the way you can listen again and again and always get something new and deep out of it. It's what Hip Hop is all about, the freedom of speech and the education and enlightenment of those willing to learn and think that bit deeper and not take things at face value.
    Peace to all

    Maitraya.. dont believe everything u read on the NOGE, 5% or the NOI as, their are dissinformers and people who want them groups stopped or ridiculed..

    read all u find, but check the author of what u read, and check their background then u can easily see the twist the author has put on their story/article

    peace

    what he means by background is to also check other articles the author wrote to see if he always bad-mouths groups like ours, or the Nation Of Islam, Black Panthers or any groups that focuses on the growth & development, and upliftment of our people. Peace, Soul Controller.

    The main objective of some writers is to make us seem as we are a gang. Others label us a religion, when in actual fact, we are neither. As I posted b4, we are not racist, and our lessons can definitely show & prove that we are not. Your duty as a reader of whatever you are reading is to always check for info on the author, otherwise you will be taking everything that is written on face value. B4 I started studying my lessons, I read Clearance 13X's backgrownd, and I mean everything, because he is our root, and we are his fruits. If I didn't do that, I would be following in blind-faith, it would be another religion to me, but I had to do the Knowledge, cuz Knowledge is the first priority.

    To keep with the talk of chemicals, check the song Labels off Liquid Swords. The intro goes:

    Lot of people, you know what I'm sayin, they be gettin misinformed
    thinkin everything is everything
    , that you could just get yourself
    a little deal, whatever, youknowhatI'msayin you gonna get on you
    gonna get rich. And all these labels be trying to lure us in like
    spiders, into the web, knowhatI'msaying. So sometimes people gotta
    come out and speak up, and let people understand, that you know you
    gotta read the label you gotta read the label
    if you don't read the
    label you might get poisoned...

    Read the labels on the things you eat. The most popular stuff that is talked about is red #40 and MSG.
    MSG is supposed to be addictive (puts a new meaning to "once you pop, you just can't stop) as well as a cuase for obesity. In order to test dietary supplements on mice, they are injected with MSG to make them obese since mice will not naturally become obese. And yet it's funny how these so called diet foods contain MSG in them.
    Red #40 on the other hand has got a whole site dedicated to that food coloring alone. I believe I read that it is a derivative of tar or coal or something. But most definitely kids eating all this candy are gettin loaded with it and you find a lot of allergic reactions. Rashes and kids acting all wild and "ADD" like so to speak. Then more chemicals are put into them to act "normal".
    Persevatives. What else is there more to say about them? They're put into foods just so they can stay on the shelf longer, but they decrease your life span in return. Wow. They also stick to the walls of your intestines. So it would probably be wise to do some type of fast to cleanse your body.

    But don't take my word for it. Look it up. Look up vaccinations while you're at it. Rza references them a lot, like in Impossible off disc 2 of Forever.

    If you like what they're saying, check MF Doom for sure. Cats think he talks jiberish, but that just puts him in the same boat as ODB.

    "top bleeding lady fell and took the loaded rod there
    stop feedin babies colored sugar coated lard squares "

    "I suggest you change ya diet
    it could lead to high blood pressure if you fry it
    or even a stroke heart attack heart disease
    it aint no startin back once arteries start to squeeze "

    He also repped the 5%'s back in his KMD days. I don't hear much of it in his raps now, but I wouldn't think much has changed. 5%'s definitely come correct on the mic. I'm not one, but give respect where it's due. You got Wu, Rakim, KMD, Brand Nubian. J-Live and the list goes on.

    Yeah, I think thatīs a good point. Itīs like, here in Sweden, when you talk about muslims most people stops listening and all they hear is terrorists. Theyīve forgotten what Islam has done for all of us in ages past. They just want someone to blame shit on.. I guess I was like that too. But when I was in Egypt a few years ago I met some people who showed me a totally different side than what is showed on television. So now Iīm trying to catch up on some of the things I havenīt seen... Iīm kind of a newbie

    Youīre definitely on point about checking sources and not taking everthing for actual facts. I know that Iīm a bit naive sometimes, believing in the good side of people, knowing that the evil side dominates some people. I gotta train to spot false words.
    So thanks for the tip!!

    Peace.
