Malcolm X: Who Taught You To Hate Yourself? |Video

“It’s just like when you’ve got some coffee that’s too black, which means it’s too strong. What do you do? You integrate it with cream, you make it weak. But if you pour too much cream in it, you won’t even know you ever had coffee. It used to be hot, it becomes cool. It used to be strong, it becomes weak. It used to wake you up, now it puts you to sleep.” -Malcolm X

Editor’s Note: Thank You From Me To YOU

 Thank You From Me To YOU

Yesterday, I was a child delivering the multimedia online news and opinion paper: Justice in America!

From my list of contacts, I delivered Justice in America to fellow Activists and Advocates of human rights and social justice.

The response was immediately amazing and downright awesome. I was more than pleased and humbled; my fears of being a pest were for naught and simply a reflection of my state of mind, not reality.

My gratitude to all who read the news stories in  Justice in America,  visited Failure to Listen and Retweeted.  Thank You!

Can I ask another favor?  If you like, become a subscriber of both.    😀

Enjoy the day!

Cheers,

Angela
