Five Percenters teach that Black people specifically, and the entire world population more generally, can be divided into three groups:
-The 85%, easily led in the wrong direction hard to be led in the right direction, who are the humble masses, mentally deaf, dumb, and blind to the truth about themselves and the world in which they live.
-The 10%, who understand much of the truth but use it to their advantage to keep the 85% under their control through religion, politics, entertainment, economics, and other methods.
-The 5%, who are the enlightened divine beings, having repossessed knowledge of the truth regarding the foundations of life and of oneself, and seek to punitively liberate the 85% through education.
The percentages presented are not meant to be exact but are instead meant to represent the public, the religious and political rulers, and the few truly enlightened people on earth, respectively.
The numbers used point out common traits to identify the members of these three groups and can be fully understood using the language of Supreme Mathematics.
What We Will Achieve
- National Consciousness: National Consciousness is the consciousness of our origin in this world, which is divine.
As a nation of people we are the first in existence and all other peoples derived from us.
National Consciousness is the awareness of the unique history and culture of Black people and the unequaled contributions we have made to world civilization, by being the fathers and mothers of civilization.
National Consciousness is the awareness that we are all one people regardless to our geographical origins and that we must work and struggle as one if we are to liberate ourselves from the domination of outside forces and bring into existence a Universal Government of Love, Peace and Happiness for all the people of the planet.
- Community Control: Community Control of the educational, economic, political, media and health institutions on our community.
Our demand for Community Control flows naturally out of our science of life, which teaches that we are the Supreme Being in person and the sole controllers of our own destiny; thus we must have same control on the collective level that we strive to attain on the individual level.
It is prerequisite to our survival that we take control of the life sustaining goods and services that every community needs in order to maintain and advance itself and advance civilization.
Only when we have achieved complete Community Control will we be able to prove to the world the greatness and majesty of our Divine Culture, which is Freedom.
- Peace. Peace is the absence of confusion (chaos) and the absence of confusion is Order.
Law and Order is the very foundation upon which our Science of Life rest.
Supreme Mathematics is the Law and Order of the Universe, this is the Science of Islam, which is Peace.
Peace is Supreme Understanding between people for the benefit of the whole.
We will achieve Peace, in ourselves, in our communities, in our nation and in the world. This is our ultimate goal.
Black people are the original people of the planet earth.
That Black people are the fathers and mothers of civilization.
That the science of Supreme Mathematics is the key to understanding
man’s relationship to the universe. Islam is a natural way of life, not a religion.
That education should be fashioned to enable us to be seif sufficient as a people.
The Black Man is the Father of Civilization
Blacks developed the first civilizations.
Throughout the ancient and prehistoric world, Blacks have been the founders of all known civilizations.
• the first dynasties of ancient China,
• the pre-Hellenic Minoan and Mycenean civilizations which birthed ancient Greece and Rome,
• the ancient Egyptians of course.
• the pre-Semitic Chaldeans, Babylonians, Sumerians, and their other middle Eastern neighbors,
• the Kushites and other obviously Black civilizations in the continent known as Africa,
• the Olmecs, the early Mayans and other Black pre-Columbian civilizations of the Americas (including the Black Indians Columbus met upon his initial voyages here),
• the ancient Black civilizations of the Indus river valley in India,
• and the Black civilizations of ancient Europe.
The Black Man is the Source of the World’s Learning
Until the contemporary attempts by Europeans to discredit the capabilities of Blacks, the Black man has been regarded as
surpassing all people and nations in his wisdom and intellect.
Visitors from far-off lands studied among the Black teachers of Ancient Egypt in the Mystery Schools.
Socrates and other Greeks regarded as the fathers of European philosophy were trained at these schools by Blacks.
Plato, Socrates’ student, challenged the Greek concept of God, which was in faet a Europeanized version of the Black gods of Egypt.
Plato, not having met the true and living Gods himself, appeared disgruntled with the human flaws of the otherwise supreme Greek gods.
The Greeks were, until the era of Plato, still praising and worshipping the Black men of Egypt.
These Facts are documented in George G. M. James’ Stolen Legacy and Martin Bernal’s Black Athena.
Examples include Zeus and Hercules, who were modeled after Osiris and Horus, and the Black god Imhotep, who is revered in
the primary creed of medicine, the Hippocratic Oath.
