Racism is Taught By Aspects of Environment, Like Media… Thus, Can Be Untaught…By Media…
Does white Kids Wearing Black Panther Costumes Mean Something Significant to Race Relations?
The Many Meanings of Black Panther’s Mask
Personally, I Prefer Ubuntu Intimacy Day
Additionally, the holiday is commercialized, i.e., sales for big white businesses reached $17.6 billion last year; this year’s sales are expected to total $18.6 billion.
And, many Black folk will break the bank buying jewelry and flowers for their beloveds WHILE…many, IF NOT MOST others will celebrate in a SAD (that’s Single Awareness Day) way…ALONE.
So, Happy Ubuntu Intimacy Day to you…
Let’s do #UbuntuBlackIntimacyDay instead
Ubuntu…IS NOT SEXUALIZED…has nothing to do with sex
Using the Ubuntu concept, can we not discover an African way to celebrate our love for each other…on February 14th… that embraces the concept of Ubuntu…Black community / village caring and intimacy?
Consider, Sobonfu Some’s’ tribe’s way of being intimate:
A renowned, respected teacher and mentor to thousands, Sobonfu Somi is one of the first and foremost voices of African spirituality to come to the West.
Some’ was born in #DanoBurkinaFaso, a remote West African village with a population of about two hundred people. Dano has preserved the old ways of African village life, with family structures, spiritual practices, and methods of living that have been in place for more than ten thousand years. In The Spirit of Intimacy, Some’ distills the ancient teachings and wisdom of her native village to give insight into the nature of intimate relationships.
Some’ generously applies the subtle knowledge from her West African culture to this one. Simply and beautifully, she reveals the role of spirit in every marriage, friendship, relationship, and community. She shares ancient ways to make our intimate lives more fulfilling and secure and offers powerful insights into the “illusion of romance,” divorce, and loss. Her important and fascinating lessons from the heart include the sacred meaning of pleasure, preparing a ritual space for intimacy, and the connection between sex and spirituality. Her ideas are intuitively persuasive, provocative, and healing–and supported by sound practical advice, along with specific rituals and ceremonies based on those used for thousands of years.
With this book, the spiritual insights of indigenous Africa take their place alongside those of native America, ancient Europe, and Asia as important influences on Western readers.
The PUUR University Question: Would regular attendance at a 12 step meeting to recover from white male Patriarchal cultural values & return to African Matriarchal cultural values… help African Americans get it?
It’s so nice to see so many new friends who’re interested in the WORLD SYSTEM OF RACISM / wHITE SUPREMACY and IT’S MISSION, BLACK GLOBAL CULTURAL SUICIDE…of North / South / East / & West Africans, African Americans, Native Americans, Hawaiians, Australians, alllll people of color…officially started with the Berlin Conference…
The Berlin Conference of 1884–85, also known as the Congo Conference or West Africa Conference, regulated European colonization and trade in Africa during the New Imperialism period and coincided with Germany’s sudden emergence as an imperial power.
…and is almost complete now, in 2018.
So, there’s no time to waste and I’m committed to this issue…and, request all the help I can get.
….they teach what they know….
For it to stop, only people from a culture that values children can teach whites new values rooted in respect like the African philosophy of Ubuntu…taught via the 12 Step program to stop patriarchal thinking written by Jackie Morgan.

…in his 1960 speech, Whither Now and Why…1st 2 pages:
“There is much hard work yet to be done before the Negro becomes a voter, before he has equal rights to education and before he can claim complete civil and social equality. Yet this situation is insight and it brings not as many assume an end to the so-called Negro problems, but a beginning of even more difficult problems of race and culture. Because what we must now ask ourselves is when we become equal American citizens what will be our aims and ideals and what will we have to do with selecting these aims and ideals Are we to assume that we will simply adopt the ideals of Americans and become what they are or want to be and that we will have in this process no ideals of our own?”
“That would mean that we would cease to be Negroes as such and become white in action if not completely in color. We would take on the culture of white Americas doing as they do and thinking as they think.”
Dubois continues, “[m]anifestly this would not be satisfactory. …We would lose our memory of Negro history…we would cease to acknowledge any greater tie with Africa…we would not try to develop Negro music…we would and thus solve our racial problem in America by committing racial suicide…“
Per Dubois: “… marry lighter people so as to have children who are not identified with the Negro race…race suicide.”
The difference, Malcolm studied Classical African History, pre-1492 which is emphatically matriarchal or gender equal and!! began to live it. Ideologically, he went from Detroit Red, who had no respect for others, women included to Malcolm X. African history transformed him.
Hint: Most Americans treated married women according to the concept of coverture, a concept inherited from English common law. Under the doctrine of coverture, a woman was legally considered the chattel of her husband, his possession. Any property she might hold before her marriage became her husband’s on her wedding day, and she had no legal right to appear in court, to sign contracts or to do business. http://bit.ly/2ySbFdA
