the 5% are those with knowledge of self (the unignorant) who try to educate the ignorant 85%
while there is also the 10%, who have some knowledge of self, but use it to exploit the 85%

Offshoot of Nation of Islam, teaches that 5 percent of man knows the truth of the world, 85 percent doesn't have a clue and is preyed upon by the remaining ten percent (using drugs, violence etc.) There are many who claim to be five percent, but in reality very few men are disciplined enough to do so.
Black man is God, Black woman is earth.

White man was created by a scientist.

Death for the misled.

Someone who teaches that the Black man is God. Contrary to popular belief, a Five Percenter can be black brown yellow or white. They believe in freedom, justice and equality.
Five Percenters are also known as the Gods and Earths. They do not believe in a God in the sky. Their emphasis is on teaching young men and women.

It is the elite club of whipped workhorses when sales are down in your industry.


The staff is already too small to cut from, so corporate will take five percent of your pay to offset what they call "loss"

Technically, it's not a loss at all.

Just less profit for those already lining their pockets with your grocery money.

Considered communism.

Everyone could still win, but won't.
CEO: We've had to make a hard decision today. Sales are down. To make up for it, everyone will take a 5% cut in pay until further notice. We will do this as a whole. Everyone is important to the team. We are a company of people. People are our biggest resource. Without our people, we are nothing.

Workhorses: So we're all now five percenter's. At least we still have jobs.

CEO: Fire one person from each market.

Workhorses: What an ass.

A religious sect that belives that black men are gods, women are earths and that it is the gods' duty to trample all over the earths
Become a five percenter and you can tell women it's their religious duty to have your children.
