THIS IS A RE-BROADCAST FROM 2009
Dr Yaffa Bey Lecture on etymology, OUR-story, Preparing for Change and HIS-story There is a problem that is spreading all over the world. The problem is what you read, write, and speak. In other words, our problem is English. English is the result of word expansion, contraction, and modifications from every other dialect and language in the world. I call it a bunch of crap that was thrown against the wall and whatever stuck came to be known as English. Inspect and recognize what I’m about to show. When you call someone “nice,” is that a good thing? If a boy is called “bad” does that make him tough? Is “fun” equal to a wonderful time? Does being “fond” of a person mean that you like them? If one is “sad” does that mean they are depressed? To each of these I say ABSOLUTELY NOT! I was never taught in any school that, if I wanted to know the real meaning of a word, I must find the brackets, or square parentheses, like these [ ] and read EVERY SINGLE THING INSIDE. Now, that you know what to look for in the dictionary, the real definitions of the quoted words above are listed below as follows: 1. “Nice” = stupid, foolish, ignorant, unwise, and not knowing 2. “Bad” = an effeminate, or womanish man 3. “Fun” = to befool, fond 4. “Fond” = to be foolish, a fool 5. “Sad” = satisfied, full, have enough So, when you open your mouth, what are you really saying? What frequency are you vibrating unto the swirling ethers? Our oppressor speaks with fork tongue.
