YOU DON'T NEED A GUN! YOU NEED TO LEARN HOW TO BE A MAN! !!!
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad has said to us that, the Black Man . . . has not been HIMSELF, in the last six-thousand (6,000) years
What do you mean, Mr. Muhammad, that the Black Man, has not been HIMSELF? Listen good now. We see a highly developed physical form . . . Right? But, we do not see the MANIFESTATION of a HIGHLY DEVELOPED BRAIN.
Because a HIGHLY DEVELOPED BRAIN, would give the man, the ABILITY to BUILD; since by NATURE, all MEN are BUILDERS!!! Listen!
And if the BLACK MAN has not BUILT . . . a WORLD!!! for himself, if the Black Man has not built civilization for himself, in the last six-thousand (6,000) YEARS, this is a SIGN, that something is WRONG with the BRAIN of the MAN! Listen GOOD!
Your bodies alright! You've got a STRONG body, but what went wrong with your BRAIN!!! that you today are lying at the feet of white people, begging them to do for YOU what you could DO FOR YOURSELF, if you were in fact A MAN!? [Applause] Listen. Everybody alright? Ok.
Don't take this, insultingly. We're talking about all of us now. This don't mean that Brother Farrakhan. . . [chuckle] is a man. No but I'll show you "A MAN"; that if we hook on to "A MAN," then we will be on the road to BECOMING, MEN! BLACK MAN you are MIGHTY! But your might is POTENTIAL, and not ACTUAL. Let's go after it now.
The Black Women can NOT respect us as MEN, if we don't show forth, the POWER of a MAN! It is the POWER!!! of a MAN, and the MAJESTY of a MAN that C-O-M-M-A-N-D-S, the RESPECT of a WOMEN, the LOYALTY of a WOMEN, the HONOR of a WOMEN, and the W-O-R-S-H-I-P of a WOMEN! for a MAN.
For WOMEN was CREATED to WORSHIP, MAN! She, oh yes sister. Take it or let it alone. [Applause] Oh yes it's true. Ah I know your getting a little hot, with me. I don't want you to get angry sisters. Because you've been so, independent . . . So . . . well you had to be really . . . Because we weren't, men. It's not our fault. But nevertheless, it's true.
But that doesn't negate the fact that your created to LOOK, to a man!!!
And when you FIND, a MAN that you can LOOK to!. . . Think over that
When you find a man that you can HONOR, a MAN that you can RESPECT, a MAN that you can WORSHIP - There you shall BE! And no man has to ask you, will you SERVE him; when you find the RIGHT MAN, your NATURE!!, will cause you to SERVE!, that MAN! All Praise Is Due To ALLAH.
Ah Brother we got to WORK though, to be that kind of man!
See I mean, we can give the outward APPEARANCE, and the poor sisters fooled, you know, "Oh he's such a, a man, he is, oh."
But when, she goes to tapping at the BRAIN . . . He got the physic, alright. But the BRAIN!!, is so torn up . . . that, he becomes, a dreamer, and he says, "The W-O-R-L-D is against me, I could do it baby, but the W-O-R-L-D is against me." The WORLD is not against a MAN!! The world is against a CHILD!! A CHILD can't force his will, on a MAN!! But a MAN MAKES his way!! A MAN forges his way!! A MAN don't make EXCUSES!!
Because he has a HIGHLY DEVELOPED BRAIN, he will FORGE!! the ABILITY get him want he wants!! You don't need a GUN!! You need to learn how to be a MAN!![Applause] BLACK MAN HOOD. Man then, in order to have a HIGHLY developed brain, that brain, must be FEED, a steady diet of TRUTH!
From the moment that TRUTH enters into the brain . . . then the man has something to BUILD on. That later . . . he can REASON with, the TRUTH, that he has come to know; and the REASONING process, will give him, UNDERSTANDING of what he thinks he knows; and this will give him the APPLICATION, of, what he KNOWS; and it is the APPLICATION of what he KNOWS, which give's him the POWER!! . . . to bring forth the IDEAS of his brain, into reality. "Black Man Hood"...That's really something to consider.
Now most of us have VISION...but we can't bring it out...and make it REAL. Why? A man lays down, "Your know I had a dream, I saw such and such and so and so, I wish I could make that real." ...My mother use to tell me, if wishes were horses, beggars would ride. [Laughter] In other words, a wish won't get it.
So what ever is in, the brain, you have the POWER to bring it out.
But there must be something there, KNOWLEDGE; then the ABILITY to REASON;and to UNDERSTAND, the principles of what you KNOW; then that give you the ABILITY to DO, or the POWER!!!!, that makes man GOD. "Black Man Hood."
Since, the white man, held us, in, their grip, and under their power, they denied, the Black Man, the Light of truth. There is no doubt in, our mind, that, we all are a SLEEPING, Black People. In fact, the Black Man of America is not styled as "Sleep," he's referred to as, being, "Dead" ...All scriptures refer to, the Black Man, as "Dead." He's in TOTAL DARKNESS . . . His BRAIN, has not started, to develop!!
Look at, the Bible . . . Pharaoh was a man. Look at pharaoh. How can you tell he was a man? He had, "a Highly Developed Brain." He was an evil man, but he was a man, and the Egyptians, they weren't to bad ether.
But what about, Israel? Israel, they were called, "the CHILDREN of Israel." Not the "Men of Israel." But the "children of Israel."
Why were they, children? Because under, Pharaoh, they were "under-developed." They couldn't GO for SELF, they couldn't THINK!! for self, they couldn't DO!!!!! for self. Therefore, Pharaoh said, "Go ahead children, go THERE children." And they didn't start developing "MAN-HOOD" until a man named, Moses, was born. Is that right?
Lets go after it now. Do you understand? Understand it now. Just a principle that we want to repeat over and over again. When you are deprive of Freedom, you are deprived of Light. Freedom is synonymous with Light.
A man who is deprived of Freedom and is chained - whether it be physically or mentally - is deprived of the right to LIVE!! as a MAN.
Therefore you are dropping him now into, the level of "SUB-Human" or to the level of a beast!!!!! Look at it now, Good God. I want you to THINK!!, just THINK, please THINK.
The Black Man Of America, has been unlike any slave, in the annals of history. Because the Black Man, was not only made a slave, but ROBBED of the ABILITY to THINK!, where he would ever become, free.
Look, to take a man and make him a slave is one thing, but to ROB him of the Knowledge of SELF!!As Hosea Said, "My People are robbed and spoiled." Look at us. Robbed of our names, Johnson and Jones and Smith. That's not you brother. That's the white mans name. Where's yours?
Robbed of the ability to speak, our language. We say, "Hello," and "How do you do," and "Good morning." Some of you say, "Polli'vous francais.". . . Some of you say, "Como esta usted?" But that's still not you, that's white folks language, Black Man. Where's yours? You don't have it.
Where's your culture? Where's your Flag? Where's your religion? Who is your GOD? Where's your native land and People? YOU DON'T KNOW!! The white man took away from us, our "H-O-O-D!!"
He took away from us, The KNOWLEDGE!!. . . that make a MAN TO BE HIMSELF! Uh? Then he put HIS HOOD!! on US . . . His EVIL, FILTHY, INDECENT WAY of life, he put it IN YOU!
NOW! So its NOT YOUR BRAIN in you, IT'S the WHITE MAN'S BRAIN IN YOU, BLACK MAN!! How can you be a BLACK MAN, with a white man's MIND!? If, the white man, is your educator, he's NOT teaching you to be YOURSELF, he's teaching you to be like him!!
And I don't care how BLACK, you think you ARE, there are so many pockets of white in you, my beautiful Black Brother, and Sister, till your NOT BLACK, YOUR GRAY . . . Trying to be BLACK, but you just can't make it yet, because you don't have enough of your HOOD ON!!
You NEED "BLACK MAN-HOOD!!"
