~ PUUR's mission is to share the General History of Africa written by UNESCO to help Blacks reclaim their cultural identity; rectify the ignorance propagated by white writers, the slave trade, and colonization; counter the affects of forced assimilation / acculturation; and promote an African perspective with which to analyse current events. This ‘new’ history of Africa is mentally, emotionally, and psychologically transformative as, for example, it was for Detroit Red who emerged Malcolm X after learning his African history. Once intellectually ingested, like miracle substance, Blacks and non-white people of color are equipped to counter, neutralize, and abrogate the system or racism/white supremacy…once and for all.
My 1st Response To Joe Madison’s Call To Black Sororities & Fraternities
Is, Glad I Didn’t Pledge
Joe Madison, the Black Eagle, of Sirius Radio, channel 126 has called out the out to our sororities and fraternities…to no avail, it seems.
At Howard University in the ’60’s, I was tempted to pledge Delta vs AKA’s because the AKA’s wouldn’t accept my mother at, what’s now, Salisbury University in Salisbury, NC because she was ‘too’ dark. ‘Internalized inferiority’ had us thinking ‘lighter’ skinned Blacks were superior to ‘darker’ skinned Blacks.
Now, in 2017, Joe Madison has called out to our Black ‘intelligentsia’, on several occasions, to act like DuBois’ ‘talented tenth’ and take a collective stand on issues (a term that designated a leadership class of African Americans in the early 20th century).
Specifically, Donald Trump calling Black women ‘bitches’ and their sons, ‘sons of bitches.
And, it seems a significant number of our Black ‘talented tenth’ still have not grown beyond their ‘internalized inferiority’ such that they still feel ‘superior’ and unaffected by issues affecting the rest us. That is, Trump was not talking about them and their mothers. That’s what not speaking out means.
It also means Black ‘intelligentsia’ has left our youth, Black Lives Matter, for example, alone to speak up, and stand up, and protest.
