Re: Domination of The Afrikan Mind 101


Here's a cycle of our actions (as a people) that holds us back. As Dr. Wilson has informed us: "OUR APATHY IN CERTAIN AREAS OF LIFE KEEPS US IN A SORRY STATE."

YOU CAN WITNESS THE SORRY STATE BY THE SORRY TEACHERS AND *****pathetic LEADERS.*****

Not all are sorry but the ignorance among us is pervasive.

We can always seek comfort in seeing someone more stupid than we are and that is what many Talk Shows EXPLOIT. They make some people say:

Re: Domination of The Afrikan Mind 101


The image of the angry Black woman is a stereotype that is spread through the mainstream media. If you couldn't tell that this was a photo-shopped picture, you would be inclined to believe that Michelle Obama is actually cussing President Obama out.

Re: Domination of The Afrikan Mind 101


"There’s something wrong with the process by which Black leadership is selected. “Black people are trapped in a viscous cycle of looking at their favorite leaders and revering them like baseball cards.” What’s needed is democracy in struggle. “People must be trained with the organizational and political capital to advocate and fight for policy and economic models that best serve their needs.”
The Historical Failure of Black Leadership
by Pascal Robert
This article originally appeared on the author’s blog, Thought Merchant.
“Black Leadership being chosen by White acclamation is nothing new.”
With the Black community still facing excessively high unemployment, the racial wealth gap between Blacks and Whites expanding to numbers higher than recent history, fully one third of the Black community in abject poverty, and overall rates of poverty as high as they’ve been in over 40 years, what has happened to Black leadership? In the face of endless statistics showing the rapid decline of whatever illusory semblance of progress Blacks imagined, such signs of progress have almost evaporated in less than a decade.
The ridiculous claim that Barack Obama ushers in a new era of Black leadership is erroneous on its face. The Commander in Chief has made it clear, publicly stating, “I am not the president of Black America.” Furthermore, many voices in the Black community clamored that, “we can’t expect Obama to do anything for us because he can’t appear to show favoritism.” Such sentiments castrated any effective capacity to pressure the first Black president to implement policy demands made by the Black community. Instead, Blacks were resigned to the limited palliatives his administration chose to dole out.
Black people are trapped in a vicious cycle of looking at their favorite leaders and revering them like baseball cards. There is a lack of understanding of the full dimensions of these leaders and the nature of their relationship to the status quo forces that place them in these positions. These so called “leaders” are not democratically elected by the Black community, yet they have sometimes damaged powerful grassroots movements, democratic in nature. The process of elevating certain leaders, while pitting them against others who were similarly elevated, allows the establishment to manage the acceptable range of discourse in the black community.
“The Commander in Chief has made it clear, publicly stating, ‘I am not the president of Black America.’”
As noted African American political science Professor Adolph Reed, Jr. stated in his thought provoking book, Stirrings in The Jug:
“To be sure, because Afro- Americans have had no referendum or other forum for legitimizing claims to be a national leader, the support of White opinion makers has been keen for all aspirants to such Race Leader status. From Marcus Garvey to Elijah Muhammad to Louis Farrakhan to Jesse Jackson--all have reproduced the ironic strategy of seeking to become the Black Leader by means of White acclamation.”
Black Leadership being chosen by White acclamation is nothing new and goes back as far as the late 1800s. In an almost formulaic fashion, continued well into the 20th century, the status quo establishment propped up Black leaders who presented acceptable remedies to the “race problem,” then elevated an opponent ideology with a fixed critique. The result was to limit the discourse to those two accepted or acknowledged paradigms.
Booker T. Washington received wide ranging support from Northern industrialists and establishment economic forces in the South promoting an acceptable ideological thesis of accommodation. Subsequently, [sign in to see URL]. DuBois, through elite ideological mechanisms, was presented as a philosophical anti-thesis, forcing the process of synthesis to be limited between two totally undemocratic paradigms. Both of these paradigms were chosen by establishment gatekeepers mostly outside the Black community. The same process occurred with DuBois and Marcus Garvey, and continued through Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. It’s called a Hegelian Dialectic and the Black community has fallen victim to it over and over since the 1890’s.
“The Colored Farmers Alliance was eventually made up of over 1.2 million farmers and farm workers.”
None in today’s Black Community talk about the Colored Farmers Alliance which had over one million members functioning as one of the most progressive Black economic and political forces the community developed in this country. Started in 1886, slightly more than twenty years after slavery, the Colored Farmers Alliance was eventually made up of over 1.2 million farmers and farm workers engaged in extensive co-operative efforts while maintaining a publication, and sponsoring many educational initiatives and conventions.
As mentioned by History Professor Judith Stein in her piece included in the anthology, Renewing Black Intellectual History, entitled: “Of Booker T. Washington and Others, The Political Economy of Racism in the United States:”

Some people are selling the future of their children to demonic beings and it will definitely have severe repercussions. Don't be deceived by the charismatic person with fleas.

Re: Domination of The Afrikan Mind 101


"In 1938, Mamie Clark graduated magna cum laude from Howard University, and immediately enrolled in the psychology graduate program. Her master's thesis, "The Development of Consciousness of Self in Negro Pre-School Children," was the beginning of a line of research that became historic when it was used to make racial segregation unconstitutional in American public schools. Her thesis concluded that children became aware of their "blackness" very early in their childhood, and it was precisely this conclusion that became the foundation and the guiding premise for the Clark's famous doll studies.
 
Clark confessed that it was not until the end of her undergraduate years that she finally became confident that something could be done about segregation and racial oppression. In the summer of 1938, Clark was hired at the law office of Charles Houston - a prominent lawyer and a leading civil rights figure - at a time when segregation cases were being taken up by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People legal defense fund. Into this office came lawyers like Thurgood Marshall and Charles Houston's own son, William Houston. As Mamie Clark later noted: "I can't even remember the names of them all, but they converged in his office to prepare these cases and that was the most marvellous learning experience I have ever had -- in the whole sense of urgency, you know, of breaking down the segregation, and the whole sense of really, blasphemy, to blacks, was brought very clearly to me in that office".
 
She thus returned to her student life with the vivid and optimistic idea that an "actual tangible approach" to end racism and segregation was more than possible - it was real. A little less than a decade later, it was the Clark's work, and Mamie Clark's expertise in black children's self-perception - that provided social scientific evidence that was influential in the Supreme Court's decision in the 1954 Brown case.
 
In 1943, Clark received her Ph.D. from Columbia University, making her the first black woman to earn a psychology doctorate at Columbia, and the second black person - her husband Kenneth having been the first. With characteristic determination, Clark had selected Henry E. Garrett as her sponsoring dissertation professor - Garrett was an exceptional statistician but also an open racist whom she later confronted under oath during a court case. Garrett was testifying as to the mental inferiority of black children. Unsurprisingly, upon graduating Clark encountered immense difficulty in finding work as a psychologist. As she explained her situation: "Although my husband had earlier secured a teaching position at the City College of New York, following my graduation it soon became apparent to me that a black female with a Ph.D. in psychology was an unwanted anomaly in New York City in the early 1940s."
 
After several unsatisfying employment experiences, Clark found a position that would lay the foundation of her life's work and extensive contributions to the field of developmental psychology. The job was a counselling position at the Riverdale Home for Children in New York. Here, she conducted psychological tests and counselled homeless African American girls. This experience at Riverdale, she described, was also the moment when she clearly perceived the tremendous shortage of psychological services available for blacks and other minority children in New York City: "I think Riverdale had a profound effect on me, because I was never aware that there were that many children who were just turned out you know, or whose parents had just left them, so to speak."
 
Clark believed, however, that the lack of care displayed by these children's parents, as well as the frustrations, anger, and worries that plagued these youngsters, were a direct product of a racist and racially segregated society. In February 1946, Mamie Clark opened the doors of "The Northside Center for Child Development" in Harlem; Northside was Clark's response to the city's lack of social services for minority children. Indeed, Northside became one of the first agencies to provide comprehensive psychological services to the poor, blacks, and other minority children. A couple of years later, the Center expanded its services by providing not only psychological help for behavioural and emotional problems, but a number of educational programs for both children and their parents.
 
Along with her work at Northside, Mamie Clark was active in the larger Harlem community and the greater New York City area. She worked with Kenneth on the Harlem Youth Opportunities Unlimited project, as well as serving on its advisory board. She was active in the initiation of the national Head Start program. Beyond psychology and child development, she served on the Board of Directors of numerous educational and philanthropic institutions. In brief, Mamie Clark was deeply involved in her community.
 
Clark served as the Director of the Northside Center from 1946 - the year of its inception - until her retirement in 1979. She died on August 11, 1983. As one of her staff members characterized her directorship of the Center: "When an unusual and unique person pursues a dream and realizes that dream and directs that dream, people are drawn not only to the idea of the dream, but to the uniqueness of the person themselves. I think this is what Dr. Mamie was [sign in to see URL], including today's school, really revolved on her ingenuity, her dream...." (Johnson, 1993, as cited in Markowitz & Rosner, 2000, p. 246).]LINK HERE

Re: Domination of The Afrikan Mind 101


I've been traveling the country during the past year and during my travels, I have had the pleasure to encounter many childhood friends and acquaintances. It has been to my surprise that many of them are suffering from some form of dementia or Alzheimer and their bodies are rapidly degenerating. Most of them are calling it old age and they are stubborn in their beliefs. Little do they know that it has been documented that Afrikans in certain parts of the world use to live to be 150 years of age on average.
When I talk about reversing their bad health habits, most of them are totally ignorant of strategies for their survival. The sad part is that many of them have passed this SLAVE MENTALITY on to their children.

"
The picture above shows how oppressors want me to be - in an iron yoke, chained and gagged. But that is not fear and compliance in the captured woman's eyes. "We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed!" 2 Cor.4:8-9.
