~ The aim of RCT is to provide people a process for changing how they've been taught to think and behave matriarchy which fosters equity vs patriarchy which fosters inequality, i.e., classism, sexism, and racism. The 12 step process, if followed, has been proven 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 correct the lies patriarchy has spread around the world. 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 African History.
Living, white Is Dangerous…Deadly, In Fact…Even for white People
Patriarchal Culture is Unhealthy
White people see the symptoms but are too patriarchal to see the problem, patriarchy. That’s why they don’t qualify to analyze any of America’s problem…only Black folk quality.
See the bottom of this collage, they say, “…Black and Hispanics, [despite being victims of the system of racism/white supremacy,] tend to have stronger family support, community support and church support to carry them through…rough times.”
This support system is cultural; it’s a benefit of Matriarchal culture…soooo, white folk need to start living matriarchally, is what those white women are saying in books like
The House Was Full At The ARC…Following Tempie Satcher, The Founder of Ladies of Life, I Ended Up At A Play In Recognition of Domestic Violence Month, ‘Then Sing My Soul’
A brief October meeting before the play…
Tempie Satcher, founder of Ladies of Life, our suicide prevention group
It was a serious, engaging, moving, emotionally charged, intense play. From my (conscious) Afrocentric perspective, the play’s messages were clear:
(European) patriarchal society teaches Black men to dominate and control women, i.e., be King of your castle , control your woman…make her do what you say
Black men are angry, angry, angry and don’t know it’s because they’er oppressed…24/7 by American society…walking while Black, driving while Black, looking police in the eye while Black, running while Black, …just being Black (see CBC.com reports: http://bit.ly/1PSzNPh Black seeks asylum in Canada)
Black men take their anger out on the person closes to them, their woman
The solutions, per my African consciousness:
healing support groups are invaluable for men, who abuse and women, who’er abused
learn that this is a European, patriarchal society and that the primary tenet of this culture is ‘domination and control’, meaning, men dominate women and children and rich (white) men (Donald Trump) dominate poor (white) men…that’s everybody
learn that the primary tenet of African / Black culture is Ubuntu, humanness, ‘ l am because you are’… ‘I recognize your humanness and am obligated to respond humanly’
For an Afrocentric person such as myself, it’s significant that the play was written, produced, directed and performed by Blacks….to me, that mean jobs by and for Blacks.
I want to thank Tempie for inviting me; I didn’t know where she was taking me but asking no questions, just followed, did as I was told and ended up in a great space…enjoyed myself tremendously.
