HAIR!!!! Quotations II

STOP Living The Lie

"LIE = A lie is speech and/or action with the intention of promoting falsehood."

-- Neely Fuller Jr., 1971, "The United Independent Compensatory Code/System/Concept: A Textbook/Workbook for Thought, Speech, and/or Action for Victims of Racism (White Supremacy)", Page 276

"I think a lil' vanity can be a wonderful thang. Keeps us from running out the house looking like: "WHAT the HELL??" (ROFL)

We all feel better when we think we look good.

The trick is learning to look good by your OWN standards, and not try to measure up to other folks' standards."

"Once you go natural your mindset should also change,

otherwise your mind is still living The LYE !!!!!!!!!!!"

-- Jazzyrock

"It is impossible to separate the motivation (for straightening our hair) from the method.

That's like separating the destination from the journey."

-- D-E

Freedom, not liberation, should be the goal of all people of colour.

With Black freedom comes a white liberation from their imposed fear of nonwhite people.

"Freedom is being free of the need to be free."

-- F. Leon

"Generally, the victims of a system of oppression have no alternative other than to accept blindly the patterns of symbols, logic, thought, speech, emotional responses and perceptions that are imposed forcefully upon them by their oppressors.

After hundreds of years of oppression, the oppressed, having lost the sense of their own identity, begin to believe that the brain-products of their oppressors are one and the same with their own, failing completely to realize that they did not control their own brain-computers nor their brain-computers' output.

The slave's fate is not to see nor reason why, but only to do or die. However, the process of liberation is one wherein the oppressed begin to clearly distinguish their perceptions, logic and thought processes from the oppressors'.

The oppressed, then, begin to respect and validate their perceptions and their logic and thought processes, realizing fully that they can never free themselves with the thought processes and perceptions that were a part of the process of their enslavement."

-- Dr. Francis Cress Welsing, "The Isis Papers: Keys to the Colors"

"Oppressed hair puts a ceiling on the brain."

-- Alice Walker

"If you are a non-white person with "light" complexion of skin, and/or who can easily be mistaken for a white person, do not seek advantage of others because of it. Resist the temptation to do so. Seek to promote justice.


To seek advantage of persons, based on considerations of color, or non-color, of the skin of those persons, is a major promotion of non-justice."

-- Neely Fuller Jr., Author, "The United Independent Compensatory Code / System / Concept: A textbook / workbook for thought, speech and/or action for victims of racism (white supremacy)", [pp. 144]

"The Black Man in America has been colonized mentally, his mind has been destroyed.

And today, even though he goes to college, he comes out and still doesn't even know he is a Black Man; he is ashamed of what he is because his culture has been destroyed; he has been made to hate his skin; he has been made to hate the texture of his hair; he has been made to hate the features that God gave him."

-- "Malcolm X and James Farmer
Separation and Integration Dialogue"
- May 1962


A psychological affliction wherein patients exhibit self-delusional behavior,
believing they have straight-flowing, European supermodel-type hair
--thereby refusing to accept the coarseness, thickness,
and/or nappiness of their actual hair."

-- Aaron McGruder, The Boondocks

This has been a Revolutionary Daily Thought

"Reconstructing a new culture among the African slaves involved the master supplying them with implements of his culture. Used combs, worn hair brushes, and ragged clothing were some materials given to the slaves by the master. The European comb was often used as a measurement by slaves as to whether one's hair was good or bad. If combing was relatively easy, you had good hair. If it was difficult, you had bad hair. Slaves were genuinely grateful. These discarded items became a permanent part of the slave's new culture."
