Quote Of The Day

“I could make millions if I led my people the wrong way, to something I know is wrong. So now I have to make a decision: Step into a billion dollars and denounce my people, or step into poverty and teach them the truth. Damn the money. Damn the heavyweight championship. I will die before I sell out my people for the white man’s money. The wealth of America and the friendship of all the people who support the war would be nothing if I’m not content internally and if I’m not in accord with the will of Almighty Allah.” -Muhammad Ali

Quote Of The Day

“The child arrives to life with little choice but to dress in the behaviors available. We are all mothered by culture and fathered by experience. These are the molds for all human social development.

When culture, our social school, is rendered crippled, and experience, our sensory calculator, registers only unrelenting emotional pain, children have little chance to develop into balanced, well-equipped, and emotionally healthy adults.

The first, immediate, and most important transmitters of social culture and providers of nurture experience are our parents. They cannot give more, however, than they have been given themselves. When the root is damaged, so must be the branch. This was slavery and racial oppression’s long-range promise to a contemporary generation of spirituality and economically impoverished African-Americans.” -Randall Robinson
