A vital step in African American progress

nat55 ·
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...

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.

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...

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.

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.

Well I'm going to go see it and taking my children with me. They really need to see what it meant to be enslaved. Not a honey coated version of it given at places like Colonial Williamsburg and those other plantation museums where the offer up a 'slavery light' version of history. This is what happens when we fail to take control of our history. Thank goodness for Steve McQueen, a black brit.

Evil came into the world with mankind, mind or manas. Brutality existed before the priest class and its exploitive association with the soldier and merchant class. Religion provided a rationalization for brutality. Evil comes from manas, man or mind. Man lives the lie of “civilization” which means "living in a city", nothing more. The most civilized nations are the ones that murder the most people and are responsible for the greatest holocausts. The “civilized” pretend they are not brutes.
