Agreed HB -
People, please defend your position without setting up strawman arguments.
What is wrong with HB's statements. How did NOI, UNOI, and the Five Percent Nation come to be? Disagreement in the methodology of acheiving a common goal. Unless you consider one or more of the following: Minister Farrakhan, Solomon (Royall), AND Clarence 13X (RIP) to be wrong, why challenge HonestBrother for having a different take?
The concepts of service, unity, & protection may be used by a social or religious group, but such organizations are not the sole custodians of such concepts.
The idea here is that these groups promote service, unity and protection, and therefore should be applauded, not mocked.
if you do not believe in the doctrine, fine, however, there is no wrong in respecting the good which has come from these groups.
Honest Brother seems to promote the idea that we as the children of slavery should reject organization since being united and organized would mean being controlled in some way.
If I can serve alone, can I not serve with 100 others of like mind? How about 10,000 others? Is there something wrong with organizing such a force once it is assembled?
