Dear Mr. Pipes

How do you clearly define anything without using accurate terminology of that which you are defining. It is ok to not adopt a particular policy but it is clearly confusing and misleading to not define things as they are clearly stated within the organization. This is called being accurate sir. Then can you historically, legally or personally tell me when the so-called blacks(Moorish Americans) went through an emancipation process,can you give a specific national geographic place to identify black, negro or colored. Mr.Pipes would you say that Washington the president and Washington of Baltimore can trace their linage to the same forefathers. Clearly you can see there are definite lines of distinction.

Are you saying that Prophet Noble Drew Ali did not come here on a mission of equality for all mankind, but first he had to help the downtrodden. "The very possession of an explicit nationality gives spiritual moorings and an established background to his whole life. Without this he remains always, and necessarily so, preoccupied with his personal. Interest, and becomes a disturbing influence wherever he may move." Stated John Drinkwater. "Any moves we make for our actual freedom nothing and no one should hinder us in any acts we make for our actual freedom.

The foundation of this movement is to obtain actual freedom for a people who still bear the slave labels and slave masters names. He needed to establish character and principles in us because our frame of mind was not acceptable to ISLAM. (Circle Seven) Freemen practice ISLAM. I can honestly tell you there is no accurate history written on Moorish Science Temple however I promise you there will be. Accuracy above all and integrity should be the foot stool of good reporting. So if you must tell the story get the facts straight. Our country is suffering because we have laid down the Constitution with the true Thirteenth Amendment.

I leave you as a Moorish American Mother and teacher who works for the salvation of our posterity and our great country.
