In 2015 more *Black Indians are remembering their true heritage and it is putting the fear into the land thieves. The system presents a Black History month and lay out accomplishments pacifying a race called Black. It is the magic wand hypnotizing black folks keeping them in a sleep until the next shopping season. The media pumps propaganda and millions of people across the world believe what is read and seen never stopping to think if the information given is correct. There is blind faith as the system’s weapon of mass destruction. Blind faith wrapped in a spool of lies. To continue bleeding red, white, and blue over the lying story of Christopher Columbus, we know better and we need to do better. The system tried to run and hide the establishment of Christopher Columbus day flipping it to a day of a thanks giving for family and friends so all the bull built by our oppressors could continue prospering over yet another commercialized day. African Americans Ain’t African joins the ghetto truth Magazine in stereo and as with the blog, we share a truth or the truth. There’s been word play and name changing of land and since 84 year old grand mamas, we have been in the dark. We have no excuses today and no choice but to create our own boot strap and take back what belongs to us. A soldier in the field promising 40 acers and a mule or the talk talk talking of restitution is worthless because that would imply damages to us has been stopped and what we see in the news and on social media, we know injustice has not stopped for the Soul people. We are seeking an indigenous life without the power plays of the Roman Empire but first you must know who you are.
Deuteronomy 8:18 - When you come into the wealth transfer, prosperity, abundance, good times or overflow, don't forget God. That's the real message. Many of us declare "power to get wealth" but we haven't really focused on the reason Moses was making this grand announcement. Sometimes, some folks want the blessing, but none of the responsibility that comes with being blessed. Join us on Waves of Glory Tuesday at 10:00 am eastern. Let's talk about it #economicempowerment #prosperity
