The Negro Problem Revisited


Recommended Posts

The term mulatto is as outdated and offensive as colored

 

The ideas black intellectuals floated 120 years ago have amalgamated with varying degrees of success. 

 

Individual AfroAmericans have made significant gains over a century but collectively, we still have a long way to go. 

 

To date, there is still no AfroAmerican infrastructure in place to insure self-sufficiency and maintain wealth. 

 

If white folks stopped hiring and patronizing AfroAmericans, the unemployment rate and poverty rate would hit 75% easily.😎

So People of Color is offensive? To who?  Why are not more connections with Africa being made. More importantly, it’s because of term Mulatto that we know many people of history were in fact Black. Like Pushkin and Dumas.

The phrase people of color is not offensive because it encompassses folks from all over the planet.

 

IMO, AfroAmericans need to build better connections among themselves before reaching out to other groups of people.

 

Africans have a whole continent and still have problems getting along among themselves.  😎

Oh show Black people in America are different from other Black people. Very telling.

To me there are cultural differences between American Blacks, Caribbean Blacks, English Blacks and African Blacks.

But are the relevant enough for us not to find a basis in Unity? Did everyone listen to the video?

 

 

 


 


 

This dialogue was part of the original video. Serendipity!?!

The cultural differences between black folks do not make it impossible to find a basis in unity.

 

However, it has to be taken into account because culture and experience do shape how people deal with each other.

 

I'm working through it in my own family. Some of the older Africans have to be reprogrammed in how they view AfroAmericans. The Americanized Africans not so much. 😁😎

@ProfD we are interlinked

No doubt. There is a common denominator of all non-white people on this planet. Culture, religion, status, class and other distractions keep folks from dealing with it.😎

No that’s not accurate. It’s a reaction incorrect perspective based on a US focus. The world isn’t White VS Nonwhite.

White supremacy and all that it entails extends beyond the US.  😎

You are such a staunch supporter of Black Inferiority.

False.  I'm a huge proponent of black self-sufficiency, excellence, pride and awareness. 

 

In the same way that Jews will never let anyone forget about the holocaust and/or come at them sideways, I don't believe black folks should ever believe white supremacy does not exist.  😎

Are you so blind that you can’t see the lie you are promoting? There is no white supremacy, never had been. It’s the same concept of White Jesus. You are confining yourself to an inferior position.

Unlike the fairy tale that religion promotes, the system of white supremacy is on full display.  There are many people who either fail to understand what it is and how it works or they choose to bury their heads in the sand and/or walk around wearing rose-colored glasses.😎

I am not inferior. That’s what you don’t get. You think you have discovered something that people can’t understand, but you have not taken the time to dig deeper.

First, it isn't my style to insult or attack anyone on a forum, therefore I have not stated that anybody is inferior.  Nor am I suggesting that I've made a discovery that others do not understand.

 

However, as a victim of the system of white supremacy, I'm qualified to state that it does exist.  It doesn't require a whole lot of digging to unearth it.😎

I am glad you went through it. That’s the things about quality and high information videos and audiobooks, they are long and they sow so much into your life.
