The Five Percent Nation Of Cop
Killers Need Vigilance
Editor, New York City Combat Correspondent News
GROUND ZER0, New York, N.Y.--Aug. 26, 2003-- The
Five Percent Nation has a couple of dogmas worthy of note. One,
is killing cops. Two, is hating white people.
Percenters were founded in 1965 by Clarence Smith (Allah)
Founded in 1965 in New
York City by Clarence Smith, a former Nation of Islam member, the
group of black extremists believe that the black man is God and that
only five percent of the population is righteous.
They profess that blacks are the original people
of Earth and founded all civilization, and that whites have deceived
the world, causing it to honor and worship false gods and idols.
Recently, a New York judge termed the Five
Percenters a "religious group." The decision removes members of
the extremist group from isolation, where radical extremists are
controlled, and offers them the ability to commune with one another.
To some, this means to plot more violence.
is the primary delivery source for the Five Percenters' message
The primary source for the Five
Percenters message delivery is through hip-hop music.
Lyrics that include violence against whites and sanctioning killing
police officers weave their way through the messages, aimed mostly at
discontent young black youth. Contemporary rap artists like
Busta Rhymes, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane and Lakin Shabazz have used the
Five Percent flag on album covers using lyrics influenced by its
Prison officials in most states isolate the gang
members, refusing to accept pleas they issue that they are a
"religious group" and seek to be recognized as such so they can
collect together and share information.
New York is one of the only states to
recognize them as a religious faction, even though the Governor of the
state is being pressured to overturn the judge's ruling by Department
of Correction officials who consider the decision a grave mistake.
From a Vigilance viewpoint, the Five
Percenters represent a contorted pretzel of Vigilance.
The logo of
the Five Percenters
Their logo is
a number 7 superimposed over a five-pointed star and crescent image
superimposed on the image of the sun. The star, they
claim, symbolizes knowledge and children. The crescent
moon, wisdom and black women. Number 7, the seventh letter
of the alphabet, "G," allegedly stands for God. Seven also
is considered the mathematical terminology for the Creator of the
universe. The white background symbolizes the deceptions
and lies practiced by white people. The sun represents
truth and light. The points around the sun are the symbol
of the universe.
The one positive element about the group is its
recognition of the children. As a group, it sees the
children as the future of the world, but that world is limited to only
Five Percent of the population, and further limited to only black
As a Sentinel of Vigilance, children are the key to all
decisions by adults. But limiting the children to one color, one
race, one creed is the great fallacy, the great divide that separates
the potential of the Five Percenters.
Muhammad, one of the DC snipers, was a Five Percenter
Five Percent is dominated by young
adherents. Part of the religion's allure there is no leader and
the group's meetings, called parliaments, generally occur in public
places. James Muhammad, one of the DC snipers, was a member.
Then, there is the issue of violence.
Promoting violence does not increase the evolution of children, but
instead washes their future in blood, hate and combat.
The Five Percenters may seem to some as just a
fringe group of extreme hate-mongers, rap gangsters who pride
themselves in killing cops and infiltrating the white world with hip
hop rap that mesmerizes the young and seduces them as well as those
older to accept their message in nefarious ways.
What they do represent is a dedication to the
future, even though that future is perverted in nature by its goal to
serve violence upon all who don't believe or appear as they do in
color or creed.
My concern as a Sentinel of Vigilance is
that their message has firmament. It is structured to
appeal to the disenfranchised. And, it has clout.
In New York, at least one judge has offered
the gangsters sanctuary. By deeming them a religious
group, the judge opens the door to the group's authenticity and its
ability to commune with one another rather than be isolated as other
states do Five Percenters.
The concerned Parents of Vigilance,
Citizens and Loved Ones of Vigilance, can look at the Five Percenters
and ask: "What if we just ignore them? Will they go away?"
The judge in New York doesn't think so.
The judge's decision gives credibility to
the group, in part because of its structure--its logo and its purpose.
protects religious freedom but can the law be the grease that oils
the chute of violence?
American law protects religious freedom, even though some may argue
that in Alabama where the Ten Commandments are being attacked for
resting in the lobby of that state's Supreme Court. Such
freedom, however, can be the grease that oils the chute of violence,
emptying upon society Terrorism from within the ranks.
To combat factions such as the Five
Percenters, all of us need to look at the Pledge of Vigilance and ask
ourselves if we are willing to stand up for what we believe as the
Five Percenters are willing to do?
Complacency, the turning of one's
head to issues of great importance, rules most of us. We often
don't feel the need to gather and form a union against forces we
consider fringe elements. We think the majority is
far more powerful than the minority, and yet find ourselves constantly
complaining about how the minority rules the majority.
Terrorism is by far the
minority of normal life in any land, in any nation. Yet,
it dominates us all. The few manage the masses.
The Five Percenters understand
So did Hitler. He
used a small percentage of thugs to rule his country.
Percenters understand how Terrorism works
Saddam Hussein followed the same path. The few, the
violent, the angry, the hateful, the spiteful, can often drive Fear,
Intimidation and Complacency into the hearts of the unsuspecting, the
That's why each of us needs to
become a Sentinel of Vigilance. If we sign the Pledge of
Vigilance, we combat and counter the many groups of minority
Terrorists who threaten to upset the safety of us all.
Regardless of our race, color,
creed or religious convictions, we can all become Sentinels of
Vigilance not for ourselves, but for our Children's Children's
The Pledge of
Vigilance issues a Terror Alert to the Five Percenters
Percenters recognize the future of their organization rests with their
children, and the mothers of them. It is embossed in their logo
structure. But what do we, as a unified group of the
majority, do to counter such structure? What counter-Terrorism
do we apply to quell the threats of Fear, Intimidation and
The Pledge of Vigilance offers such a
counter-balance. It provides Courage, Conviction and Right
Actions for all the Children's Children's Children to block the Triad
of Terrorism--Fear, Intimidation and Complacency.
Join the 95 Percenters.
Take the Pledge of Vigilance.
Perhaps if you do, the Five
Percenters will follow.
