everything-bass:

Dear Palestine, dear Syria, dear Burma, Dear Afghanistan, and dear every other oppressed country - do not think that Allah does not know what you are going through. Do not think that Allah cannot see what is happening. Do not think that Allah does not care. He does. He is just waiting to show them how He is far greater than all of their rockets, bombs, rifles. He’s giving them time to show their “strength” so that He can then show them how they are nothing, absolutely nothing compared to Him. Allah will recompense all that you’re going through. Have patience, victory is coming.

"Being  black is not a matter of pigmentation - being black is a reflection of a mental attitude.”
“Black Consciousness is an attitude of the mind and a way of life, the most positive call to emanate from the black world for a long time.”
"Merely by describing yourself as black you have started on a road towards emancipation, you have committed yourself to fight against all forces that seek to use your blackness as a stamp that marks you out as a subservient being."
“The most potent weapon of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.”
“The basic tenet of black consciousness is that the black man must reject all value systems that seek to make him a foreigner in the country of his birth and reduce his basic human dignity.” 

- Stephen Bantu Biko
