Has the history of the last 500 years been a record of who had technology and who didn't? If native Americans had had machine guns 500 years ago then what would have been the history of slavery in the South? So do we continue into the future letting palefaces know more and controlling education or do we continue this fixation on slavery that was just a symptom of less technological power. Young Black boys who can't repair their bicycles and are riding around without brakes need more slave...

Hey nat55. I think we also need to understand the nature of white supremacy as well. Which is the most important when we live and operate under that system today. White people are willing to do anything to maintain the perceived power. So nothing they do should surprise any of us.

That's so true, Yemaya!! However ... I gotta admit ... that the lengths that some of them go to are all but unbelievable, sometimes!! If I didn't see/hear about it with my own eyes/ears .... I just couldn't imagine that some human beings would actually think the way they do!!

As ER said, it is not only elementary school where this information is omitted. It is omitted in middle school, high school, and of course in college, unless you take it upon yourself to take an African American/African studies course. Though I’ve never taken an African/African American studies course in college, I would wager that 90% of the most pertinent information is still omitted. What our children wind up learning is the same MLK, Civil Rights Movement, Brown vs. Board of Education,...

Hi sunnubian , I a gree with all you say here. I chose the g rade school because in it there's already a captive audience so to speak. In other words, by law, every AA child must attend the classes set up for him or her there. One advantage is that it would eliminate the need for any of them to seek out such knowledge (libraries, book stores, etc.). Therefore, although it would be difficult, and perhaps impossible, to overcome the opposition to get such a plan implemented, I believe that It...

This is an addition to the original topic and message: Why understanding AA history is vital to AA progress I recall replies to this subject that imply that it's useless to think about the past. As an answer to this, I like to tell of something discussed the first day in a high school social studies class. The teacher put this question to us: "Why is it important to learn about certain events that happened in the past or even ancient past". After some of us tried to give answers, the teacher...

It all boils down to very simple psychology; First you brain wash the people [wash their brain clean] then you have a "Blank Slate" to indocrinate their brain with whatever it is that you want them to believe, think, fear, love, hate, desire, or be indifferent to, creating a "Self-Fulfilling Prophecy" effect that insures the indoctrination(s) will be carried out by those people. Africans were brainwashed on the cotton plantations of the south and where ever they were held as slaves in the...

I think black students are interested in black history, but our American experience is not a story of beauty and its not easy to discuss among other ethnic groups and really its kinda recent when you think in terms of the number of lives you are separated from slavery and the living that was raised in segregation and Jim Crow. Its not a pleasant subject for most. I remember reading books written by slaves, slave narratives and it was not pleasant reading and some of the stories I read...

Solution To Gun Control

Share Cenk Uygur and actor Tommy Chong talk about the best way to get better gun control in the U.S. “I came up with a solution to the gun control problem,” Chong says, “all because of pot. The solution is insurance. You can own a gun, but it has to be insured. And if that gun creates any havoc, the insurance company has to pay.” Cenk says, “That’s really smart because what it does is get capitalism behind the solution.” Watch the video now

A vital step in African American progress

A Vital Step for the sake of AA (African American) Progress. I first wish to mention that for anyone who has difficulty reading such a large amount as this. I suggest reading only a comfortable portion at a time, each with a comfortable interval of rest & reflection on the portion just read. What I've written about here is what I believe to be a main cause of AAs’ problems. It particularly pertains to AA progress and the grade school black studies curriculum. Apparently, whenever black...

What Is the Community Doing to Address Chicago’s Gun Violence? By David Love - February 21, 2017 0 628 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter The issue of gun violence — more specifically , Chicago’s gun violence — is by no means a new issue. However, President Trump has singled out the city, even threatening to send in the federal troops, as a part of his “law and order” campaign. The current discourse coming from the White House focuses on more police, more prison and increased criminalization...
