Quote Of The Day

“The individual can attain self-control in great things only through self-control in little things. He must study himself to discover what is the weak point in his armor, what is the element within him that ever keeps him from his fullest success. This is the characteristic upon which he should begin his exercise in self-control. Is it selfishness, vanity, cowardice, worthiness, temper, laziness, worry, mind-wandering, lack of purpose?- whatever form human weakness assumes in the masquerade of life, he must discover.” William George Jordan

Black History Fact: What Famous Author Was Stokely Carmichael’s Freshman English Teacher?

When he was a freshman at Howard University, Stokely Carmichael had an English professor who was to become a Nobel laureate. She was also the future editor of two of his books.

He had this to say about his famous teacher:  “My freshman English teacher I’ve never forgotten. She was an instructor and a challenging teacher who was really down with black literature and our people’s culture. But this teacher was unusual in one other important respect: she was young, stylish, and really fine. Her name was Toni Morrison…About eight years later my teacher and I met again when she would be my editor at Random House for both Black Power and Stokely Speaks.”

Malcolm X’s Prediction For The Year 2000 That Didn’t Come True

In his autobiography, Malcolm X recounts a conversation he had with a white reporter who he felt was honest and sincere. He didn’t reveal the name of the reporter because he wanted to protect his identity and spare him any possible backlash he could receive from expressing his admiration for Malcolm X.

Malcolm X said he had an extensive and pleasant conversation with the reporter about the Dead Sea Scrolls, history, archeology, and religion. He said that they discussed Jesus being a man of African descent. Malcolm X described the conclusion of their conversation by saying: “I remember we wound up agreeing that by the year 2000, every schoolchild will be taught the true color of great men of antiquity.”

Quote Of The Day

“A grand game of chess is being played on a level that we can barely imagine, and we are the pawns. Pawns are only valuable under certain circumstances and are frequently sacrificed to gain an advantage. Those who have seriously studied history have probably discovered the real reason we go to war on a regularly scheduled basis.” -William Cooper

Quote Of The Day

“Hypnosis is a disorientation of the inhibitory processes of the conscious mind, bypassing the analytical mind so that one becomes highly responsive to suggestions and information in the subconscious mind. As the conscious mind is busy and preoccupied trying to figure things out, the subconscious mind takes it all in without discretion. If you can disorient people with information (or in today’s world, disinformation), shock, or confusion, you just opened the door to programming their subconscious mind.” -Dr. Joe Dispenza
