Me and my mother were having a conversation the other day about “black unity” and she expressed to me how it makes her sick at how much we as a people hate each other and how she doesn’t know why we treat each other so hateful.
As an activist for black empowerment, I agreed wholeheartedly with her distaste for the way we treat each other as a people. But what really bothered me about her expressions was the fact that she didn’t know why we treat each other this way.
Prior to this conversation, I thought every conscious black person knew what the root cause of black-self hatred was, but after talking with my mom I realized I was wrong.
This bothered me because it brought to my attention that if someone as intelligent as my mom is, doesn’t know what the root cause of the self-hatred amongst black people is, then there are many other black people who don’t either.

It is no secret that this country, the so-called United States of America, was founded upon White Supremacy.
Ever since the Spaniards invaded this land during the 14th century and stole it away from the indigenous Blacks and Indians through deceit and much bloodshed — white supremacy has been the standard by which this country lives by.
This is why it took over 400 years (15th-20th century) for us to be freed from slavery, about 300 years to be allowed to vote, and over 200 years to be able to have a black president. This is also why the government orchestrated the murders of our most prominent black leaders of the 60’s and 70’s such as Malcolm X, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Huey P. Newton. Not to mention the fact that the government currently donates 1 million dollars to Planned Parenthood every 24 hours for the purpose of promoting abortion in black communities.
And while many of our people today have been deceived into believing that racism is dead and that things have now changed because we have a so-called black president in Barack Obama — white supremacy is still the standard by which this country lives by. Click Here to Keep Reading..

I’m sure many of you have noticed that I don’t publish many new posts these days like I used to.
