During my undergraduate experience I took no less than 4 (possibly 5) "Black Studies" courses.
AT THAT TIME in my level of "Intellectual Maturity" and development of my "Spirit Of Discernment" I was happy and excited to learn more about the "Mystical Magical ANCIENT AFRICAN CULTURE AND CIVILIZATIONS" that brought forth the time when OUR ANCESTORS were "ONE WITH GOD AND THE EARTH".
It didn't bother me that some of the 'Black Studies Department" faculty where also "local activists" and noted "popular lecturers". At that time I believed that it was an affirmation of "Their Truth".
Upon moving to Atlanta and having a roommate who was an "Afro-Centrist"/ "Pan-Africanist" / "Anti-Jewish (The Most Exploitative Type Of 'White Devils' of them all) [THIS IS HIS LIST - NOT MINE] I engaged in several "Black Education forums' at Clark Atlanta University and 'Black Community Forums' - sponsored by "WRFG - The Progressive Information Station" - as I went along with my friend. [OK - as bachelors in Atlanta at the time - we were also going to see the beautiful Sistas).
My friend to this day has a large collection of "Black Studies" / "White Colonization Research' / 'Jewish Conspiracy' [I didn't say 'Right Wing ZIONIST' I said JEWISH] / Cecil Rhodes / 'Christianity Is The White Slave Master's Religion" BOOKS in his library.
We have debated so much over the years that at one time I told him "RACE IS YOUR RELIGION".
Then we have our FAMILIES and our experiences in ATLANTA.
Today my friend and I are surprisingly in agreement on certain things that I have previously rejected BUT even still our "ARRIVAL TO THIS COMMON PLACE" is still wrought with a rejection of HIS foundation: "THE WHITE MAN IS A UNIQUE AND 'EVIL' FORCE . THE JEW NEVER FORMS JOINT VENTURES WITH ANY OTHER GROUP WITHOUT IT ULTIMATELY BEING TO SERVE THEIR OWN INTERESTS --------AND ------------"BLACK PEOPLE ARE A 'SPIRITUAL PEOPLE'............."WE ARE NOT EQUIPPED to do the GLOBAL SYSTEMATIC GENOCIDE THAT WE SEE WHITE PEOPLE CONDUCTING"
IRONICALLY the bulk of our (yelling at each other) debates is over the LAST POINT.
As he voices his frustrations about the large gap between HIS EDUCATION and awareness of 'The SYSTEM (of Capitalism) versus what the AVERAGE BLACK PERSON ON THE STREET - who is pursuing a CAPITALISTIC CONSUMER lifestyle - when I interject that 'BLACK PEOPLE ARE 100% EQUAL [Their behavior PREDICTABLE if you insert the very same STIMULI (opportunism) and manipulate their CONTEXTUAL AWARENESS - they will DO THE VERY SAME DAMNED THINGS THAT WHITE FOLKS DO(!!!).........................HE PUSHES BACK - saying "Black People Are SPIRITUAL PEOPLE it is ONLY THE 'SYSTEM THAT THE WHITE MAN HAS SET UP' that is causing us to KILL EACH OTHER, spend our money on self indulgence, etc.
To me THIS IS his "PRESSURE SAFETY VALVE".
Instead of operating from the core premise that BLACK PEOPLE ARE 100% EQUAL AND NEED STRONG INSTITUTIONS TO REGULATE US FROM 'MOLESTING OUR PERMANENT INTERESTS' - he AVOIDS this INTELLECTUAL LOCKDOWN that "MANIFEST BLACK EQUALITY" would limit his "CREATIVE ANALYSIS" from making use of.
MY FRIEND (everything written above is my truthful experiences and are my dealings with a real person who I reference) IS ultimately has the very same CORE FLAW that so many other BLACK AMERICANS operate with: "BLACK PEOPLE CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO BE 100% EQUAL TO WHITE BECAUSE THE POLITICAL OPPORTUNISM INSIDE OF AMERICA BASED UPON THE 'INDICTMENT OF SLAVERY/JIM CROW/ETC'...........WOULD NECESSARILY HAVE TO BE YIELDED AS '''''A SELF REGULATORY REGIME FOR ORGANIC BLACK COMPETENCY DEVELOPMENT TO RISE UP FROM THE ASHES OF DECEIT, MOLESTATION AND HARVESTING' THAT IS ENDURED TODAY IN AMERICA."
My college experience (undergrad, not graduate) taught me how to do STRUCTURED RESEARCH.
The majority of my "major" and (later on) career based knowledge was learned from USING THE RESOURCES OF THE UNIVERSITY on PERSONAL TIME!!!
KENNESAW STATE UNIVERSITY
These young protesters at Kennesaw State should be forced to GO BEYOND the standard notion that: "IF 'BLACK STUDIES IS BEING DISCONTINUED THEN THERE MUST BE AN ATTACK ON BLACK PEOPLE'.
WHO DO THEY KNOW that "BLACK STUDIES ITSELF IS NOT AN 'ATTACK UPON BLACK PEOPLE" via the insertion of a "CANNED NARRATIVE" that is USEFUL for AMERICAN POLITICS?
Name the SO CALLED "Black Studies Professors" that are foregoing AMERICAN POLITICS and keeping "OUR EYES ON THE PRIZE" per the awareness of WHAT IS GOING ON IN AFRICA TO-DAMNED-DAY among the populations of Black people that make "Black America" look like a ROUNDING ERROR (97% vs 3%).
WHY don't we ever hear any BLACK HISTORICAL NARRATIVE about PAST violent conquests of PEOPLE OF COLOR used as a means of CHALLENGING the present day operations of 'The United State of America"? (NO I am talking WHEN 'The US Government" has an INTERFACE THAT IS FAVORABLE TO 'THE AMERICAN CONTAINERIZED BLACKS' and they CHOOSE the interests over these 97% OVER any ephemeral gains for PROGRESSIVE NATIONALISM in America - that can be swept away once the OPPOSITION WHITE RIGHT WING REPUBLICANS get into power?
THIS IS WHERE MOST "American Political Progressive Blacks" STOP their inspection.(note this list is ordered like an INGREDIENTS LABEL - the most SUBSTANTIAL ingredients go first)
FROM MY VANTAGE POINT:
- (For the first time ever) YOU LIVED VICARIOUSLY THROUGH A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES who was BOTH your "BLACK NAVAL VESSEL TO FIGHT THE WHITE RIGHT WING DOMESTIC ENEMY' and THE US COMMANDER IN CHIEF - free to use the very same "POLICE MILITARIZATION" equipment that YOU PROTESTED AGAINST COMING TO YOUR 'BLACK COMMUNITY', in other 'BLACK COMMUNITIES' OUTSIDE OF AMERICA - that you have been DISCONNECTED WITH thanks to PROPAGANDA
- YOU GOT 'SOCIAL JUSTICE HEALTHCARE" AFTER BEATING THE "White Right Wing Enemy" - who you said "Wished You DIE ANYWAY"
- The HISTORICALLY WHITE CONTROLLED NATIONS performed their HIT on NATIONS OF COLOR - and your CONFIDENCE MEN LEADERSHIP got PAID OFF - so they DID NOT lead any ANTI-WAR RALLIES against the White House (occupied by a FRIEND and many BLACK ENTERTAINERS sent then to showcase 'Black Talent On The National Stage'
- YOU LOST THE ELECTION that was supposed to allow your 'SUCCESS' to be continued
- The Historically White Nation STILL IS DROPPING BOMBS ON OTHERS
- YOU JUST GOT YOUR "OBAMACARE REPEAL" process initiated
THE MANIPULATORS ALL KNOW THAT YOU ARE GOING TO FIGHT TO GET YOUR 'HEALTHCARE RESTORED" MORE THAN YOU EVER WILL THINK TO HAVE YOUR CREDIBILITY RESTORED BY INCLUDING WHAT IS BEING DONE TO THIS OTHER LARGER BODY OF BLACKS.
IT IS CLEAR that those forces who WANT MORE OF THEIR "PRESENT VIEWS TO BE AFFIRMED" by MORE "Black Oppression Studies" MORE LampBlack American Media and MORE WEALTHY BLACK ENTERTAINERS pouring their wealth back into NEW PROPAGANDA PROJECTS - because YOU DON'T WANT TO CHANGE YOUR "IN THE WILDERNESS WAYS"
