THOUGHT OF THE DAY 12-29-00
Carl Patton writing for the
FreedomJournal December 29, 2000 in the year of our Lord.
is a crucial element in Dissension and Dis-Unity in the Black community."
The Black community we speak of
consists of Blacks in America, our African brothers and sisters and Blacks
throughout the world.
We bear witness as sure as the Sun
shall rise and the Sun moves to make room for the Moon that Hate is NOT an
ingredient for Victory over oppression, economic exploitation and Racial Abuse.
Hate is what many in the Hood call "Hustling Backwards." You cannot
Hate your enemy to death. Now I know that the Hate-Mongers are saying Patton is
crazy, "we must kill our enemies to achieve victory."
Can humankind that has been
historically despised actually kill all of the enemies of Freedom, Justice and
Equality? Where is the Army? There is none, thus how can Hate be a great Call
for Freedom among the wretched of the earth?
Are you saying that Love will conquer
all? No and Yes. As we bend your philosophical ears, we present: Hate exists
and so does Love. However, Hate should not be ever present in making an assessment
of problems and concerns in the Black community. Furthermore what of the
Passive mind? Thus, does the absence of non-violence usher in Violence?
Therefore is it true that the absence or non-acceptance of one element on the
pole of extremes mean the logical move to the other.
It is for sure that Violence and
Non-Violence exist and so does Hate and Love. However, the Absence of one does
not mean the advocacy of the other.
As a further note we believe as God
is our witness that Love is Supreme. However, Love is not a sign of Weakness.
To exhibit Love in the midst of a Storm is a sign of Strength.
