THE POWERLESS POWERFUL: BLACK FALSIFIED CONSCIOUSNESS – DR. AMOS WILSON
THE WEALTH & POWER OF A PEOPLE IS NOT IN THEIR LAND BUT, IN THEIR MIND! Japan, which has no natural resources to speak of, is one of the most economically powerful nations, and Europe is in a similar position. If you have an appropriate consciousness, you can con another. You can use words to rob people of their mind, land and wealth and say, “this is a holy book,” and have them give up their land. You can manipulate people and have them spend billions of dollars, the way African Americans [& Africans] do–who would rob, sell drugs, kill and destroy communities & nations, to give their wealth to white folks. THE WHITE MAN IS A GOD THAT WE HAVE MADE – THE WHITE MAN IS A GOD THAT WE MUST DESTROY! – Dr. Amos Wilson
