A doctrine which emerged in 1960s as an offshoot of the Nation of Islam. The belief is that mankind began about one million years ago in the Mideast (Black people are today refered to as "Asiatic Black Man.") The doctrine holds that 85% of the people are presumed to be chumps, spending their life deluded and ripped off. 10% do the ripping off, are in the scams of entertainment, sports, politics, religion, business, etc., and live as fat cats but in sin. Only 5% have the knowledge and moral standing to be the world’s teachers. Non-black people are not excluded from the ranks of the potential righteous and the doctrine holds that one's works and life are more important than skin color.

The doctrine has lately undergone a vigorous ressurgence thanks in large part to hip-hop artists, particularly Busta Rhymes, Wu-Tang, Rakim and Big Daddy Kane. The movement now refers to itself as the “Nation of Gods and Earths.”

Despite trappings, the movement has only the most tenuous links to Islam. Most importantly, adherrants believe in several gods, that the words of prophets have been distorted beyond recognition and that the Five Percent are in themselves, Gods or at least the Gods' agents.
"I wanna big up Five Percent Nation Of Islam, Yeah!"

Get the five percent mug.
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.

Fascist who rejects fascism as a platform for political organization, national solidarity or ethnic chauvinism.

Someone who believes fascism’s critique of Western aesthetics is lost in its conversion to a linguistic framework (political theory) PARTICULARLY in terms of low-context Indo-European languages.

Refers to the 5% of the fascist movement that reduces fascism to a synthesis of Italian aesthetic idealism and Hindu sensualism.

A member of the meta-right.

A messianist.
A five-percenter would discourage political organization along fascist lines as he posits fascism to be an existential philosophy driven by aesthetic critique ie he views a linguistics as a poor framework for fascism. As evidence for this position, he presents fascism's self-destructive political engagements and social organizational theory.

95 percent of the population is either culturaly or religiously brainwashed and incapable of free thought. That leaves 5 percent of the population who actually "get it".
