If We Would Only Take A Peek…
If we would only peek…just take a peek at our history. It has to be good, great, even astonishing or they wouldn’t keep it from us.
If it was full of dirt, violence, and crud…they being drowning us in it…the fact that they continue to find ways to hide it from us should tell us just how great it is.
What do whites think we’d do if we knew our history?
Well, I just found an article that says they keep it from us because it will give us a it will awaken our collective memory and motivate us to reclaim greatness and that they don’t want because then they can’t control us anymore.
Killer Still At Large…”System of Racism/White Supremacy”
Originally, Was a The System of Domination & Control: Wealthy White Men Oppressed Their Women & Poor White Men Before They Encountered Black People, But They Did, They Oppressed Us, Too
Replace ‘capitalism’ with ‘non-hierarchical, communialism’. What is ‘communalism’? It originated in Black Africa and is STILL practiced in places where people live traditionally per minimal contact with European hierarchical culture that dominates and controls people (will research & provide names of some groups later).
For your study, see the following scholars and/or works:
Diop is the primary scholar because he disproved white scholars; he proved that Egypt is in Africa, that the people of Egypt were/are Black, and that Black culture (characterized by equality of sexes, communal, interdependence, & cooperation) is different from white culture (sexist, hierarchical, independence, & competition). Not an easy read so here is a link to a pretty good summation… http://bit.ly/1QOhNHn.
Other works that further expound on the difference of thetwo cultures include…don’t read, scan to answer the questions:
Once we’re clear on culture we’re better be able to understand racism, it’s origin, and how it impacts our lives…10 life areas: education, entertainment, political/economics, health, labor, law, religion, sex/relationships, & war (amended F.Welsing’s areas)… AND, KNOW HOW TO COUNTER, NEUTRALIZE, ERADICATE IT and, know what to expect of whites.
Suffered Cultural, Physical, & Sexual Abuse In White Man’s Schools…from 1883-1998
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission in Canada has concluded the country’s decades-long policy of forcibly removing indigenous children from their families and placing them in state-funded residential Christian schools amounted to “cultural genocide.”
Many students recall being beaten for speaking their native languages…lost touch with parents and customs.
Prior to desegregation, African Americans graduated well informed, to include knowledge of self via Black history, from segregated 2-room schools, had a thirst for education, lived their customs, i.e., respect for elders, adults, & their community.
Since desegregation…going to the ‘white’ man’s schools, African Americans, especially, today’s youth, only speak English, have lost touch with extended family, only know American history, and celebrate primarily American customs…Christmas, Easter, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Halloween, etc., think being ‘smart’ in school is ‘acting white’. And, technically, are almost more ‘white’ than ‘Black’ behaviorally, as DuBois predicted would happen in his 1960 speech, Whither Now And Why.
