Lesson 1: Intelligence, Education, Universal Knowledge, and How to Get It (pp 1 - 18)

post#3 of X continued

Never write or speak on a subject you know nothing about, for there is always somebody who knows that particular subject to laugh at you or to ask you embarrassing questions that may make others laugh at you. …

The best time to read is in the evening after you have retired from your work and after you have rested and before sleeping hours, but do so before morning, so that during your sleeping hours what you have read may become subconscious, that is to say, planted in your memory. Never go to bed without doing some reading. …

Never keep the constant company of anybody who doesn’t know as much as you or [is] as educated as you, and from whom you cannot learn something or reciprocate your learning, especially, if that person is illiterate or ignorant because constant association with such a person will unconsciously cause you to drift into the peculiar culture or ignorance of that person. …

Always try to associate with people from whom you can learn something. Contact with cultured persons and with books is the best companionship you can have and keep. …

NEVER GO DOWN IN INTELLIGENCE to those who are below you, but if possible help to lift them up to you and always try to ascend to those who are above you and be their equal with the hope of being their master.

If they do, chances are, the cops will be called and more often than not, guns will be drawn.

Because it’s women like you that make black girls self-conscious to go natural and y’all try to include your selves in everything.it’s a two part process of accepting you natural texture and your natural heritage (that being African)

White women will forever try to appropriate, black culture,…
