Black America: Do We Hate Ourselves?

16 Feb

Ray: I know it’s Black History Month but I would have posted this at any time of the year. It’s an interesting speech given by Malcom X concerning Blacks in America hating and not understanding their roots.

What do you think?

      Man,Know Thyself.

      And,to the Western” To Thy Own Self Be True “.Are at the Apex of first the Kemetic (Egyptian) understanding of knowing who you are, and your place in the Circle of Life.Simularly swore attributed to Islam and. The Judeao-Christians Isaiah statement “My People Perish For Lack Of Knowledge”.The Greek’s “I Think Therefore I AM ” every culture since the dawn of history the value of self-knowledge has been the saving factor at the core of the survival of the people of any group.By the same token;if you are a person the blood within you is a direct path to your origin.This is true genetically,historically,and spiritually.Fortunately there are other factor that identify us that coincide with geological and historical factors. Also the color of our skin indicates the origin of our being

      So we see the question of Race is a query of Spirituality, Genetics, Geography, and History. For the purpose of this discussion on Racism we can separate these factor into two distinct category;The Darkness,and The Light. Not only are these the basic elements that separate us, as human beings, but they are also the elements which give order to the Universe. They are the determinants of time and space, and have been obedient to their purpose since there beginning, this is a elemental truth that can not be disputed.Unlike the human counterpart of Night and Day, the darkness and the light of humanity are in great conflict.The reason being that one chose to invade the geological space of the other and has sought to gain and maintain through violence dominance over the other.

      I am very much concerned with the case of the Man who abducted the child held her hostage conceived children with her , did a stint in prison while maintaining dominance even while allowing her at times to see her family. After a period of time she lost free will and identity of self.It has been described as a very heinous crime to say the least. Also he is requesting to see his children. I would compare this case as a microscopic view of the case of slavery.The abduction of Africans from their homeland,the imposition white genetics upon black women the murder of millions of black men woman and children.Two hundred years of legally sanctioned terror, followed by one hundred and fifty years of physical, phycological.and systematic terror and to a much greater degree the victims have lost their free will and knowledge of self. We the victims a generational Helsinki Syndrome suffer a from a gross mental illness,to the point where most of us can only identify with our captor. I am sure that this analysis will mark me as a Racist by Whites but more surprising many Blacks. Both should under-stand that the first thing that White people did in every case of capture or conquer was to destroy the identity of their victims. Man,Know Thyself
