?I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one's head pointed toward the sun, one's feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death.?

?I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.?

May I add my condolences to Mr.Mandela whom I greatly and deeply respected a great man whom not only lived a blessed life but in my fiftyeight years on earth Mr.Mandela guided people in a direction of forgiveness and love around the world. Starting with his triumphs in his native land challenges the very accusers to speak the truth in regards,to being set free and demonstrated with intellect and knowledge from{GOD}.His success obtain Nobel Peace prize,Elected President of south Africa,with various consoriums,Still there are many negative people in this socitiety that donot understand how and why a greatman made the world see with understanding and patience you can move mountains and gain respect. And I accept and appericate all that gentleman has done for me.Thank you,Mr Mandela

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world? Not True

Because it will depend on what kind of education one has and who has given it to them or rather where they have learned it from. The most powerful education that a black person can have is the one from God which can make a movement because only the movements can make changes. When a person is confused and lost in life then it means that they will listen to anybody or rather anything that they hear.

Some of you black people do not know who to follow up behind in life when yall do not have any black men american leaders or speakers that is sent from heaven by God so yall will tend to believe in those foreigners and those white people. In other words CONFUSED! More people are born to hate then to love and I was born to love but, later had learned how to hate so therefore I hate now more people then I love.

I suppose that happens when God send you from heaven to live in a world full of you low down and dirty lying backwards thinking devils. God do not create Devils only Satan do.

OK. I see where you are coming from, Michelle usfg. But,
Here is what you overlooked, Michelle usfg.
The devil educates the populace in the moors evil. the populace follows the devil and makes a movement...a castotrophic movement, but a movement none the less.
some of the most powerful movements that caused detrimental change are the direct result of the acquired knowledge of hatred for self and hatred for others in the guise of progress and a benevolent benefactor.

The reason why the Hon. Minister Louis Farrakan has not been taken down by those racist white people is because he is not a Angel sent from Heaven by God to this planet earth of hell (meaning he is not a THREAT to those foolish racist white men).

Those racist white men only hate God's Angels. Which are Me, Malcom X, Martin Luther King Jr., Johnny Cochrane, Harold Washington etc. God' Angels will stand against those racist white Devils just like I will do as born a Real Black Woman Genius.

Farrakhan says that he is the follower of the teachings of Elijah Muhammad, who died at age 77.

If your statement is truth, why is it that most white America views Muslims and the NOI as a threat to all that's good and holy in America?

Most white americans will view Muslims and the Noi as a threat to them because the both of them are liars or rather are confused to the world in God's eyes when it comes down to him. Good and Holy my sweet royal black behind. If you are not a righteous person then you are not Good or Holy.

God is Righteous which makes him not to be Religious. Elijah Muhammad did not have all of the right answers when it comes down to you black people but, I do. All that yall have to do is ask? I am not a misleader when it comes down to you black race of people.

I was not to ever be found out when it came down to you black race of men. I was suppose to be kept a secret from yall because I am born a genius which is a angel who is from heaven. Those white men and those foreign men wanted for you black men to think that yalls black women wasn't nobody when it came down to their race of evil lying women.

Then I pop up and that is when the truth hit the fan. I am the only black woman like this who is born a genius which is a angel sent from heaven. Those other race of people are my enemy because they are of enemies to God and his Angels. In other words I do not trust them.
