Re: African or African American Philosophers

...Philosophers? ...by education (degree) or socio-political influence? Among Afro-Americans, Alain Locke is the best known formally educated philosopher. Then, you have Cornell West, Kwame Appiah (Ghanian) rounding out your contemporary thinkers of note. If I take your inquiry to mean thinkers (ie, philosophers) in a practical sense, the list grows exponentially: Toussaint L'Ouverture (Haiti) Gaspar Yanga (Mexico) Frederick Douglas Vincente Guerrero (Mexico) Nathaniel Turner (aka, "Nat"...

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justic for all. Right on!! Now, I ask you, just what is that flag, with the yellow fringe and tassels that the President stands in front of when he delivers his "magnificent" speeches stand for exactly?? It's not the flag flying in front of houses and up flagpoles. There's not one, but many in back of him alllllll the time. What's the...

True slavery has existed longer than freeedom. In fact, slavery have been HERE in the world since the beginning of time-which includes EVERYBODY....Europeans too. But! The difference in African slavery I see opposed to others who have been enslaved are the facts that we were/are the ONLY ones targeted and specificially taken from our lands for sole purposes of profit and sex. Hence the ideology of being a degraded form of chattel property. African women and children have always been on the...

I do admire Belafonte for all these years still being a person that will actually come out against injustice and racism without regard to what it may or may not do to his career, and for even being a person who could just as well sit in his comfy life and just ignore plight of anyone not in his own family or his own circle, but he chose not to just sit and ignore and be a hear not evil, see no evil, speak no evil Negro. But, your response, Koco, was really on point. I really think that you...

Thank you for that my sista. Through the years, I've self-published a few books: poetry and essays mostly. But! After the death of my son, my focus changed. And there was a need for me to incorporate my knowledge to the youngsters. So I developed many after school programs to teach writing, literacy, composition and such to those uninformed teens who think they know it all. For a good while, I hated adult black people....it took me almost ten years to finally heal from the anger of...

Your welcome Koco, and I really meant it. Also, I think that many, many African American feel frustration and even anger towards the African Americans out there that are just a big weight on the Black community, I know I have. But, then I have to think about how little I knew when I was young and that most of what I know now and have learned about our history in this country, African history, American politics, racism, the politics of psychological and social manipulation, etc., I had to...

Thank you for asking my sista. My feeling of abandonment came from my son being gunned down in front of a least 40 morning commuters whom merely swirved around his body as he fell to the ground like he was road kill. No one called the police. No one stopped their cars. He just laid there dying. No one saw him as maybe someone who could be one of their children-a son. Or maybe a family member. Their inhumane ignorance of a "child" laying in the middle of the street demonstrated to me how...

Koco, I am so sorry. I am almost speechless. It's unbelievable that human beings can even have it in them to do something like that. I'm gonna have to mentally digest that for a while. I am so sorry. I'm glad you found the strength to soldier on to help someone else, to try to save other people's children in the face of how everything when down with your son.
