"Study your enemies. "A warrior needs to know his enemy's weaknesses." "Know your enemy. Anytime you stop fighting your enemy simply because he says things that sound like what you want to hear, you are making a mistake. You have got to pay attention to exactly how he says it." Question the oppressor's culture. Seek guidance from old and young masters who study it, and not your people, as the problem. Seek patterns in their thought and behavior. Is there any honor among thieves? Is any economic agenda a valid excuse for immoral, inhuman behavior toward any people? Does every encounter they have with people unlike them end in a violent confrontation? Is it coincidence that, even though happening on different dates and times, when there was the threat of a "riot" by Blacks in L.A. and Cape Town europeans emptied the gun stores? Patterns tell all. Knowing that the historical nature of a people will give meaningful insight into the "why" of what they are doing now, and will do later, is an old, tried and true maxim. Understand their asili, their cultural core and its imperatives."
"Specifically, for the Afrikan, knowing what "the claim to an absolute ultimate truth is a psychological necessity for the European
mentality" means is fundamental. Listen as Armah's wisdom hones our minds to discern that "wherever there is life, even if it be only possibility, the harbingers of death must go to destroy it. See the footstep they have left over all the world. Wherever they have been they have destroyed along their road, taking, taking, taking." The sage Ogotemmeli words it more explicitly on a spiritual plane: "Being impure, the dead create disorder everywhere."
"Remember, as a warrior scholar, the first and foremost question to be asked is "Why?" Why is it that "the most generous things White Americans have done have been to fellow White people [and] the meanest things White Americans have done have been to non-whites?" Why would one of our most esteemed, studied and dedicated ancestors
conclude that "the genius of the Europeans is that they have a talent for draining diseases. They have always drained their sores on the lands of other people. They have the talent for recovering their internal losses by external extraction from people who had nothing to do with the crimes committed against them?" And what should that mean to you, Afrikan warrior?"
