"When we hear the truth, and know deep down within our souls that it is the truth and yet still we do nothing, we then truly begin to die. It is time that we stand up against what we know is being deliberately done to us."
The ultimate measure of a person is not where one stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where one stands in times of challenge and controversy
Dr. Martin Luther King
When Complacency Increases, so does danger
By Franklin G. Jones
Many African Americans perceives the election of President Barack Obama to be the long awaited change that the late Sam Cooke beautifully sang of or that the late Dr. King so movingly gave speeches about.
Many also now believe that the fight for equality in the United State is now over and that we have finally overcame. While I must admit that I too was moved upon witnessing the historical 08 election of America's first Black President sentence, however, we must be careful not to become complacent and blinded of the fact that America's powerful ruling elites- they that are the controllers of world banks and financiers of national elections that maintains true constant power throughout many presidencies-- will not discontinue their greedy , exploitative and suppressive practices merely because of the election of President Barack Obama alone.
It is more likely that these ruling elites will attempt to exploit the election of President Barrack Obama, by merely using it as a means for restoring America's eroded global image and standing in the world. Ironically they may also use this historic election to further maintain their white dominance by perpetuating the false hood reflecting that America has truly become an equal society, thus making Blacks cry for true equality even lesser heard. It may even be used as a justification to rethink affirmative action laws.
Unless the masses of Black people are made more aware of America's true ruling elites and their modern methods of deploying white racism, nothing will change even with a Black President. Although today most African Americans do not experience racism the way their parents experienced it, they do however, still experience White racism. White America's practices of economically exploiting and suppressing its Black population were never actually abandoned, but instead sophisticatedly reincarnated. White America's methods of institutional racism have been secretly modified into a more contemporary and stealthy design that provides a more socially acceptable means to covertly control and suppress the advancement of its African American population.
A sophisticated and covert social engineering system designed to maintain white dominance and control that necessitates the suppression of people of color especially of Black people. The U.S. Government now secretly deliberately disseminates false deplorably racially devaluing statistics, and propaganda about its Black population that are deliberately designed to adversely manipulate and shape the minds and collective consciousness of its African American population-- corrupting African Americans sense of unity, cohesion, and reason -- and that facilitates a consensual national setting of which its Black population is more easily divided, exploited and ultimately suppressed.
All African Americans have experienced the burden of this system of applied psychological conditioning, some more severely than others have. It is experienced every time we [Blacks] read a newspaper, watch the evening news, listen to a radio report, enter a classroom and read its racially biased textbooks. To the detriment of many African Americans, it has been an extremely effective. It has successfully conditioned many African Americans to accept the dominance of Whites and white institutions over their lives by misleading them to believe that they are, themselves, their own worst enemies, therefore engendering an aberration of internalized self contempt that pulverizes Black unity and halts Black upward mobility. It is at the root of both the profound division and self hatred now afflicting so many Black Americans and is at the heart of internalized feelings of superiority that many whites possess.
This massive psychosocial program not only negatively impacts Blacks self perceptions, it also ensures that the masses of African Americans remains the most racially devalued and most economical exploited and suppressed group in America. America's modern system of deploying white racism is the reason of why today, that so many African Americans, perhaps more now than ever before in history, favorably and adamantly refer to themselves by the derogatory "N" word. It is also the reason why are so many, once very well mannered and respectful young Black men are now admiring the deplorable behaviors of thuggery and pimping? It is the hidden reason why Black unity, racial pride, and educational aspiration, once hallmarks of Black identity -especially during the 1960's- has so dramatically declined? It is how we African Americans became living contradictions of our former selves? Did you believe the easy and convenient answer that Black Black unity, racial pride, and educational aspiration, unity, cohesion, and these admirable cultural traits all merely disintegrated when integration and other subsequent opportunities became available?
Within this same breath the question may also be asked how and when did the white race become the litmus test and standard for all humanity despite their brutally racist history to the contrary of where of which all other races has been either their enemies or their victims?
Many people of African descent ,those possessing the mental fortitude to remain spiritually and psychologically awaken within a white dominated world that wants them asleep, have pondered upon these very same profound questions. They know that there is something going on. Many often can not fully explain it, but have felt it their entire lives like a splinter in their minds that something is terrible wrong. Rather than partaking within the pathological struggle engendered by these profound questions this literature explores, dissects, and exposes the truth about what is really happening.
The media’s constantly depicted deplorable imagery of Black Americans is also designed to create a shift of victimization that changes the root problem of racism in America to be due to Black’s behavior rather than White’s proclivity for racism. Thus engendering increasingly prejudiced distorted perceptions and acrimonious beliefs about African Americans that makes the nation and the entire world insensitive to their plight, tranquilizes efforts on their behalf, lessens pressure for social change on their behalf, and makes any serious criticism of White racism almost impossible today. Therefore ultimately fostering a national consensually setting of where in which Blacks are more easily exploited and ultimately suppressed. It also creates a false justification for the legal system’s mistreatment of African Americans wherein they are disproportionately incarcerated, given stiffer sentences, and are more likely than other racial groups to be treated brutally, beaten, and fired upon by police officers while they are unarmed. These injustices now goes ignored because the perception has subconsciously become that it’s all now justified. When contempt of Blacks is made to appear to be justifiable, it is the fiercest and most effective type of racism because its witnesses, bystanders, and even world audiences will sit by idly allowing African Americans to be brutally mistreated under the belief that it is justified. And while many African Americans have successfully navigated through this psychologically mortifying mine field and have gone on to lead successful, productive lives, for far too many this immense devaluation can seem inescapable and tragically, over time, many begin to accept subconsciously and painfully the negative portrayals of themselves. In fact, this mortifying psychosocial treatment of African Americans may be the most aggravating, if not core, factor of the national phenomenon of self hatred; loss of educational aspirations; loss of unity, cohesion and racial pride; and fragile psyches of many African Americans today. It is in fact so fundamentally detrimental to the Black human condition and psyche that it may even affect the extent to which many African Americans realize their full human potential.
This terrible system of psychological manipulation and social engineering of African Americans has been so successfully accomplished that it is almost impossible to reverse. You see, part of the conditioning is almost like Stockholm syndrome. The victimized group begins to love their enemy and to feel that the enemy is justified in its oppression, etc. The victim begins to feel that they deserve the mistreatment, and they will actually oppose anyone who suggests what is being disclosed here.
This Black Matrix system will not be discontinued because of the historic and unprecedented presidency of Barrack Obama alone we African Americans must first become cognizant of it and unify ourselves against it . Unless the happens this real Black Matrix will it ever be eradicated. Even with one Black president.
