~ The aim of RCT is to provide people a process for changing their colonized thinking and behavior which fosters classism, sexism, and racism. America’s patriarchal culture socializes us to think and behave like white people are superior and people of color are inferior. To correct this thinking, RCT is rooted in Africa’s matriarchal culture which fosters social equity. It is critical that humane thinking and behavior replace colonized thinking and behavior as soon as possible therefore, it’s important to know that the 12 Step process, if followed, has been proved to begin to change how one thinks and behaves in 90 days. To promote permanent change, THIS 12 step program includes New Way of Thinking (NWT) classes to teach pre-colonial history. The 12-18 month classes include 1) Understanding the two primary global cultures, matriarchy and patriarchy, 2) Understanding the system of racism/white supremacy, and 3) Pre-Columbus-colonial History.
What cross do you pray in front of…the African Ankh or the white Christian cross? The Ankh that embraces the Matriarchal concept go gender equity or the white male Patriarchal cross which eliminated and eliminates, subjugates, and subordinates the feminine?
Joe Madison Says We, African Americans, Are…Culturally Conditioned…
What Is It?…
Joe Would Say, Do Your Research
(European) Cultural Conditioning is the social process in which authority figures such as …professors, politicians, religious leaders, peers, and the media define our cultural values, beliefs, ethical systems, and ultimately the way we perceive ourselves in the world.
It determines everything we think…unless you have some other content to counter it, namely, the ‘truth’, i.e., African or world history.
Why, African history…it is world history since life began in Africa, not Europe. Only, knowing the ‘truth’ counters conditioning.
For example, in the art piece by 10th grader Akilah Johnson, who won the Google Doodle contest, is full of the ‘truth’ taught her in independent Black schools. It’s full of traditional African symbols…can you or your children identify them? If not, you’re culturally conditioned to believe what European authorities want you to believe…
Akilah said she chose the symbols purposefully… the ankh, the symbol for life, the breath of life, symbolizing the fact that it takes both woman and man to make life; the African continent, where everything began and the home of her ancestor; and the Eye of Horus, the all seeing eye…the Horus’ story is the story of the first immaculate conception.
So, Akilah’s education taught her that her people were the first on earth; her people are the ancestors of everybody else on earth today; the immaculate conception originated with her people…the Mary, Joseph and Jesus story is a copy of the Isis, Horus, and Osiris story, that’s why the Pope prays to a Black Madonna; that her people lived and live *matriarchally…meaning, among other things, equality of the sexes, as the ankh indicates; etc., etc.
So, Akilah learned African history and greatness of Black people prior to their period of enslavement in America…which is all most people know. And, having learned this information from early childhood, she is not subject to ‘European cultural conditioning’.
