A Great Career Choice for Black Folk with Criminal Records: Why not a Black supremacy emergence from within White supremacy?

Being Black, poor, and marginalized satisfy any three-strikes (you're out) rule, for success; a criminal background to boot cements a life of ever illusive opportunity. To try, is to do. To not try, is not to do! So, what are some choices felonious Black men/women who served sentences for criminal offences?    Brothers and sisters just don't want to sacrifice what's needed to obtain a formal college education; which could grant near vindication of criminal backgrounds. But some sacrifice, like or not, is required to say you, at least, tried. Even if you ultimately fail. Changing lifestyles, habits, or environments are keys towards making a personal difference, whether you have what it takes to survive is simply a matter of how much work you put into change. Entrepreneurship is only way to go if you're a Black ex-felon newly released from prison/jail.    Writing books is not only a respectable career, it's a way to make some quick cash.

Valued social relationships versus individuality, where deception and truth merge: A Black Perspective.

Research recently published, 2008, suggests that deceptive communication can serve a functional purpose. The study revealed that a person's motivation to deceive is influenced by his or her/his cultural self-identity [and] that one's cultural identity greatly influences whether a message was perceived to be deceptive.    The research points out that:    -- People who strongly valued their own individuality over the social relationships reported having a lower overall motivation to deceive;     -- People who possessed cultural self-identities which emphasize placing group needs over the individual reported having a greater overall motivation to avoid telling the truth;    -- When people were presented with a scenario in which deception would serve to benefit them, those who valued their independence were more willing to use deception than in cases where deception would benefit someone else;    -- People who valued social relationships over individuality, reported a greater willingness to use deception to benefit others rather than for self-serving purposes;    Western cultures have long been noted to cultivate members who value their individuality. Being a moral and ethical person requires avoiding any communication that would jeopardize one's own personal integrity, such as lying.    By comparison, East Asian cultures have been well-known for endorsing more indirect styles of communication to protect the image of the other and promote trouble-free relationships. Deceptive communication has and continues to serve as a useful tool in the maintenance and preservation of significant social relationships.    [Adversely, false identities (about one-self) can throw off and muddle 'well intended' sites. Deceivers of identity are of low moral; impostures, the main form of self-deception involves unreflective acceptance of belief(s) that impartial inspection would readily expose as spurious (ideas, principles, and aims) in the instance of lying to one's self, to deceive others; arises from the failure (or refusal) to analyze appealing ides of others from the perspective of the generalized other which we acquire through participation in the universe of rational discourse. This perspective rejects the two most prevalent explanations of self-deception - namely, Sigmund Freud's psychoanalytic interpretation and Jean-Paul Sartre's phenomenological one - I provide a brief sketch of some of Dewey's and Mead's fundamental insights into the inherently social nature of mind.] 
 

The White Woman Problem - Another Important Task for Black Women

How white women use strategic tears to silence women of colour Ruby Hamad The legitimate grievances of brown and black women are no match for the accusations of a white damsel in distress.    ‘Often, attempts to speak to or confron white womnn about something she'  said or done that has an adverse impact, it is usually met with tearful denials and indignant accusations.

Conflicts Between the Privileged Often Spills Over, Interfering with Efforts of Blacks Vying for Power, Until it's Inconvenient.

FOR EXAMPLE: When Hurricane Katrinia struck New Orleans, leaving the dead floating in the street and the living stranded on highways and rooftops, a huge crowd of mostly black and poor people descended on the city’s convention centre, where the cameras, but little else, were waiting. When asked why relief organisations had been caught off guard, the hapless director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Michael Brown, responded: “We’re seeing people that we didn’t know exist.” Since the population of New Orleans was well known, a more accurate assessment would have been: “We’re seeing people that we didn’t realise we were supposed to care about.”     
 

Tactical and strategic dimensions of Trump's Iran decision is playing out here in the middle east.

The Israeli military said 20 rockets were fired at its positions in the occupied Golan Heights overnight.    It responded by launching what a spokesman called "one of the broadest aerial operations in recent years".    There was no immediate comment from Iran, whose deployment of troops to Syria to back the government in the country's civil war has alarmed Israel.    Iran has repeatedly called for an end to the existence of the Jewish state.    Israel's military had been anticipating an attack by Iranian forces after reportedly carrying out a number of strikes on their facilities in Syria in recent months. They included one on an airbase in April that killed seven Iranian troops. 
 

Black Urban Patriotism Today: Blindsided on the White Side

400+ years of social & economic disparity, white supremacy has dazed Black folks psych and focus.  Now, ineffective struggles for ‘change’ have transformed Black demands into a monster, with an eye on ‘replacing’ White hegemony (with our own brand of oppression) as a solution to Black disparity.  Power does, indeed, corrupt! Instead of continuing a united fight for control over Black lives as a whole, we struggle for equality, equal opportunity to oppress; alongside White folks.    In Libya, Blacks have reverted back to the slave trade (selling their own people), some Europeans and other countries are buying them.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            “Oh, but they are animals.  That could never happen in America, not again.”  It’s what White folks say too!  Really?   Education Secretary, Betsy Devos, policies furthering aspects of the ‘hidden curriculum’ in schools is already preparing Black children towards a (forced) labor market permanent policy.  Many Black parents, Black education leaders support these efforts (they’ve been duped into believing is good) will benefit the Black community at large.   And that’s just one of the many first hints,  a revelation of the larger and more complex struggles to come!

Hope Drunk (a poem)

It’s harder, than ever, these days to see the bright side of life, what with reality the way it is. Suffering imminent, never ending pain, reminiscent, expand a good plan some evil is collected. All is well in love and war, child victims, seniors - sore no more, snuggled in bunks, hope drunks. It used to be, expression is free, disappointment, now the price to throw the dice, and nothing left but breathe, from God, hope drunk. For the best candidate a bullet bump, in secret, hope drunk. Benefits, saved for a few, who knew, insistent, demanding positive thinking order of the day and those in a slump, hope drunk. A golden watch, a fish dinner, a thank you for support, and with nothing more, shown the door. A life insurance policy, satisfied, died in a dump, hope drunk. In reality the same way, celebrate defeat on the seat of dismay. The problem before was not the score, a punk, hope drunk

Duped Again: Wealth, the only Compensation for not Being White?

Black the beautiful, naturally kinky hair, natural walk, and talk, values traded for the almighty dollar.  African American is led down many roads to envy, feelings of discontent and a resentful itch caused by the possessions, qualities, and dumb luck of white America.  The problems we face lay just behind the facade of the greatest lie ever told; that enslave, imprison, kill, and steal distinction of Black folk.  We’re given a title that separates us, African American; and left confused about who we are or want to be.  And don’t even realize it!   And we agonize over debasement of our Black children, worry for their safety and wonder how matters got so far out-of-hand in-spite of our (so-called) successful accomplishments.  We dismiss the straight hair conversion, bleaching cream discoloration, and our fortunes over the unfortunate as part of the problem.  We are content, over happiness with what we’ve become.   Village elders molest the children, instead of help rearing them, while the children compete, one with the other, in fatal games designed in the name of freedom.     As the band plays on, joints and needles are distributed to soothe and to celebrate our individuality.   African American is led down many roads to envy, satisfied or dismissed by material possessions.  The band plays on to satisfy our perverted needs; we're almost like White and White folks.

PERSPECTIVES ON GLOBAL MODERNIZATION RISKS: THE AMERICAN DREAM REDEFINED

State and community equalitarian building on principles of positivism paradox factored into theories of human rights and individualism, continue to produce the inhumane treatment of society’s marginalized and ‘unfortunate’ individuals and groups. Autonomous mechanisms within applied social, political science, and risks associated with modernization patterns are structured to fit within the accepted parameters of how democratic institutions are defined and empowered. As such, principles on which the state functions, and which sustains the government, continues to invalidate or undermine the effectiveness of those institutions. Thus, encouraging popular discourse, ‘civil/human’ rights policies following this same universal rationale serves to only reproduce state-sponsored inequality and social stratification as just another tried and tested practice at which to be competent. As long as popular discourse is synonymous with ‘positivist’ ideological management and the concept of ‘risk society’ considerations, we shall remain unable to reconcile being a ‘good’ government of humane political and social practices.   Good government recognizing principles of positivism can never adhere to social and economic equality for all; inhumane treatment of the underdog, by the hegemony, must always result in class conflict constantly changing hands until one group is utterly incapable of regrouping; dog eat dog until only one is left standing.
