HERE"S HOW ITS BEING DONE TO US PLEASE READ AND THEN FORWARD !!!!
A hidden fact is that although the United States Government portrays itself as the leading ethical and moral authority of the world and professes equal rights for all American citizens, its oldest and most important objective has always been an unyielding commitment towards the preservation of its White dominance. This objective has always directly correlated with the necessity to suppress the advancement and growth of its Black population. Because if the U.S. government treated its Black population in a manner which does not promote its interest of maintaining White dominance and control, this would render the U.S. Government diametrically in opposition to itself. Therefore, it secretly uses every conceivable means and opportunity to suppress its Black population, even those that trample upon its own stated ethical values.
This terrible reality as led to what I refer to as:
THE RISE OF THE REAL BLACK MATRIX
In 1968 After the death of Dr. Martin Luther king Jr. there was much unrest, discord and wide-spread violence that which increasingly placed the peace and stability of the nation in dire jeopardy. This resulted in the decline of national stability and loss of lives and property that cost the nation and taxpayers millions of dollars. These factors, combined with the rapidly tarnishing American global image, led to the then president, Lyndon B Johnson, ordering that a commission be formed, later known as the Kerner Commission, to investigate and prescribe a cure or recommendations for the problem.
The Kerner Commission concluded that blatant White racism was the single aggravating factor for the collective problems. This finding required that the U.S. Government abandon its usage of blatant forms of racism used to control and maintain its White dominance. This abandoning of dated tactics led to the need for developing an improved method of controlling and suppressing its Black population.
The U.S. Government’s agents of White supremacy quickly reformed their techniques of institutionalized racism. Changing times made it necessary for the U.S. government to change its methods to a much more subtle and socially acceptable means of continuing its racial suppression of Blacks and to maintain its White dominance. Because the blatant methods, of assuring that its White dominance be maintained, used and condoned in the past are no longer morally and socially acceptable, the U.S. Government secretly implemented a far more sophisticated method of maintaining its white dominance.
The United States government secretly implemented its largest ever covert assault operation against its Black population through its educational, judicial, and prison systems and, most detrimentally through a campaign of psychological warfare that uses mis-information, false statistics, and negative propaganda media reports. The unrelenting daily assaults on the Black psyche corrupts African Americans’ sense of reason and unity thus creating the culture of failure and disparity that now afflicts modern Black America.
Today’s modern method of white racism in the United States is now secretly applied through the government’s proven method of Covert Counterintelligence Program [COINTELPRO: A misnomer for Domestic Covert Actions.] A system of white governmental racism that is implemented through the American educational, judicial and prison systems-- that prevails and is concealed through the usage of Psychological Warfare implemented through the national media that fosters a consensual environment for its suppression of its black population. It is a sophisticated system of white racism that deliberately wears only the appearance, if any, of being totally self afflicted by African Americans themselves. In doing so, the United States Government have acquired a far more insidious and covert method of ensuring that its white dominance is maintained that exists behind a clever shroud of secrecy and deceit — for it is in this way that the evils of racism thrive best -- when its victims do not recognize the evil.
This modern system of institutionalized racism is so in fact so sophisticated , that one may compare America’s old system of white racism- used against African Americans in the past-- to that of this modern type by saying that the previous system had a GED while today’s methods has a PHD. For today’s system is for more sophisticated, elaborated and proficient then any system of racism previously faced by African Americans-even slavery.
While although this modern method of governmental white racism covertly uses the American educational system to mortifyingly mis-educate and disesteem black students and the judicial and prison systems to severely reduce black growth and upward mobility by reducing black America’s ability to procreate and to vote thus to maintain its white dominance. However the most significant and detrimental aspect of this modern system of white governmental racism used today in America is its aspect of using psychological warfare against African Americans. [ Governmental Psychological warfare is the art of directing masses and individual towards governmental objectives by means of cleverly manipulating theory and misinformation. ]
Today as a mean of ensuring that its objective of maintaining white dominance the United States Government has modified its methods of exploiting and suppressing its Black population into a form more socially acceptable in contemporary times that uses mis-education, false statistics and negative propaganda media reports that equates a psychological warfare that conspires to corrupt blacks of unity, reason, and common sense, thus deliberately soliciting the disparity that has now become modern Black America. Moreover it is the core factor of the unprecedented amount of disparities afflicting Black America today. Here is a simplified analogy of the psychological aspect of this modern system of racism that is now being implemented against America ’s Black population: Let us say, for example, that a group of people was aboard their own massive ship and that their ship was being shadowed by another neighboring ship, a neighboring ship that was constantly broadcasting derogatory messages to the first group that their ship was lesser, smaller, not seaworthy or perhaps slowly sinking or that their crew was incompetent or was planning a mutiny. With time, the group receiving the negative messages, being unable to refute or to confirm these derogatory messages and deficiencies will grow weary and paranoid of the negative messages and will eventually comes to accept these negative assessments of themselves.
The perception created by the taunting now unconsciously influences how the taunted group perceives themselves, subsequently causing them to become distrustful of themselves, doubting themselves, hating themselves and, eventually, fighting among themselves. The taunted group may even become so besieged by deep feelings of inadequacy that they may even jump into the sea and attempt to swim towards the taunting ship now believing it to be superior to their own boat even if their own ship was in fact better.
Within a real world setting, this is implemented against African Americans through U.S. governmental agencies that leak false derogatory and negative stories through press releases in magazine articles, radio, television documentaries concerning its Black population to its collaborators in the news media, which either knowingly or unknowingly carry the false information as their own. These false information are designed to demoralize, discourage, berate, subjugate, and or dismantle the Black population. It also perpetuate and frame the myth of Whites’ racial, moral, and ethical superiority over its Black population.
This science of psychology works by affecting the unconscious mind through deception. Its weapon is not the way it is sent, but the messages that it carries and how the messages affect the recipient and influence society. Its works by, first, simply learning everything about the targeted group, their beliefs, likes, dislikes, strengths, and vulnerabilities. Once you know their strengths you attack it unrelentingly and once you know their weakness' you exploit them. This method of warfare adversely effects the recipients in terms of their behavior. Its concept of warfare is that the human being's most critical aspect is the mind and it uses psychology as the decisive factor in the outcome.
This method of pschological warefare produces a shift in victmization that creates a consensual environment of in which blacks sre systimatically suppressed through its judicial and prison systems. Its campaign of false derogatory stories about its black population produces a perversion of reality that insinuates that America would be a better society as a whole if African Americans were gone, thus psychologically changing the root problem of racism in America to be due to Black’s behavior rather than White’s proclivity for racism.
This shift of victimization that the problem of racism in America is due to the fault of African Americans engenders distorted perceptions and increasingly prejudiced and acrimonious beliefs about its African American population that creates a consensual environment that facilitates the easier exploitation and suppression of Black America. [For when contempt of Blacks appears to be justifiable, it is the fiercest and most effective type of racism because its witnesses, bystanders, and jurors will sit by idly allowing African Americans to be brutally mistreated under the belief that it is justified.]
The worst aspect of this governmental psychological warfare is not how it adversely affect race relations in America but instead how it causes many blacks to percieve themselves -thus adversely affecting black self perception, unity and ultimately upward mobility. People are all products of cultural conditions and their worldviews operate outside of their level of consciousness. Therefore, no group can be preconditioned to see only the worst in themselves and not exhibit some degree of negative psychological impact. The worst aspect of this psychological operation against America ’s Black population is, not how it adversely affects race relations, but instead how it causes many African Americans to perceive themselves. It is like the earlier analogy of a group of people aboard their ship constantly receiving derogatory messages that their ship was lesser, smaller, not seaworthy or perhaps slowly sinking, subsequently coming to accept these negative messages and thus becoming distrustful of themselves, doubting themselves, hating themselves and therefore, fighting among themselves.
The U.S. Government’s psychological warfare against African Americans also divides and demobilizes African Americans by engendering self-doubt, self-loathing, and distrust among their group. The African American psyches have borne centuries of extremely unhealthy and brutal devaluing in the American society from slavery through its aftermath of Jim Crow inequalities, an ongoing racially biased educational system, and now through this method of psychological warfare that routinely subjects African Americans daily to seeing -- through a controlled national media -- only the worst in themselves accomplished through the use of deliberate misinformation, false statistics, and census reports that insinuate that they should admire, respect, and trust only Whites. This campaign of negative messages is detrimental to the mental health of African Americans and collectively exert an inhibiting effect on the extent to which many African Americans can realize their full human potential. …….Because Studies show that what a person thinks and feels about him/her is largely determined by what others think, therefore, it goes without question that the immensely mortifying setting to which African Americans are subjected daily would be extremely and fundamentally detrimental to their human condition and psyches. In fact, this systematic mortification of African Americans may be the most ignored and yet most disturbing fact of racial life in America for African Americans. It is believed to be the most aggravating, if not core, factor of the national phenomenon of self hatred; loss of educational aspirations; loss of unity, cohesion and racial pride; and fragile psyches of many African Americans today. Moreover, internalized racism, demoralization, anxiety, and anger over everyday discrimination are to be expected at the levels of the day-to-day mortification and exploitation experienced by African Americans in the United States . And yet, for far too long, many African Americans have been unable to discuss openly and honestly this problem and how it affects the way we perceive ourselves and the way we perceive our aspirations. [Several studies have touched on the connection between discrimination and poor mental health. It has also been linked to higher level of stress and psychological suffering including depression, feelings of hopelessness and of anxiety, fear and self hatred and lower level of life satisfaction. .] Although most African Americans may instinctively feel that something is wrong, they cannot, however, express their suspicions and conceptualize them sufficiently so that they and others can comprehend and act to defend themselves against it nor do most Blacks even believe that they are being attacked and subdued. …………. Moreover, all African Americans have experienced the burden of this psychological warfare, some more severely than others. It is experienced every time we [Blacks] read a newspaper, watch the evening news, enter a classroom, and read its racially biased textbooks. And while many Black Americans have successfully navigated through the mortifying system of educational inequality and have gone on to graduate and lead successful, productive lives, for far too many African Americans this immense devaluation can seem inescapable and tragically, over time, many begin to accept subconsciously and painfully the negative portrayals of themselves. Many also become discouraged by the acceptance that their society is also preconditioned to see the worst in them and that, therefore, if they were ever to gain acceptance, if it is to be won at all, that success would be hard won and likely to manifest negative internalized psychological pain and distress within many African Americans that can take many forms.
Under such extreme degradation as experienced by African Americans, many develop the psychological aberration of control in which we become literally prejudiced against other Blacks; that is, some of us actually acquire the character of the White oppressors, which, ironically, is not uncommon. For whenever one group exists beneath the ideologies and social domination of another group, the perceptions, value system, and the ideologies of the dominant group [directed subconsciously] are assumed by many in the oppressed group as evidence of the effectiveness of the dominant group strategy and tactics.
Although this may sound a bit like bad science fiction, Psychological Warfare is a real and well-proven technology that exceeds the territorial limits of conventional warfare to penetrate the proposed target. This type of psychological warfare has been used by the military since World War II. A popular motto among the users of these covert operations is "Capture their minds, and their hearts and souls will follow." For once their minds are reached, they're defeated without bullets. Used in all aspects of war, the effectiveness of psychological warfare is limited only by the ingenuity of the commanders using it. Although the usage of psychological warfare began within a military setting, it was eventually realized by governmental and societal elites that this method of psychological warfare could be useful for totally controlling society, therefore, psychological warfare technology evolved from its military usage against foreign enemies to being used to control society domestically.
Today, the U.S. government, like many other developed nations, conducts planned campaigns of extensive strategic psychological operations through the national media to influence the perception and climate of the nation towards the attainment of its governmental objectives. Every act of the government has a psychological impact, and it is ongoing from President Bush's media coverage stunt where he landed upon a U.S. Naval battle carrier dressed as a pilot, to the U.S. soldiers pulling down the statue of Saddam Hussein in Iraq , to the staged rescue of Jessica Lynch. These strategies are all part of the sophisticated system of psychological warfare, and they are on-going, all around us, all of the time.
The ability to influence the nation in mass using psychological operations through the national media is highly effective because the media itself is very powerful in terms of its influence. For the media helps shape our views of the world, what we consider to be good or bad, and also forges our deepest values, identities, and our sense of what it means, for example, to be male or female. These facts, combined with those studies showing that the average American watches 18 hundred hours of television each year, affirm that there is a great inclination for Americans to be affected by psychological operations conducted through the national media.
Clearly, the sophisticated method of psychological warfare met such a need for maintaining white dominancy within the United States. It was the logical choice, perfect for the changing times. Unlike the blatantly brutal forms of racism used in the past which Blacks were able to identify easily and therefore unify and form counter strategies, this modern method of racism works from a psychological perspective. This method provided the U.S. government a more socially acceptable method of continuing the White racial hierarchy for dominance and control given that it is not as easily recognized. This new method exists in the space between overt racism and racial respect. Its methods include the ability to both influence the national climate and engender personal psychological feelings among Americans that meet the U.S government objective.
This concept of the U.S government using psychology as a weapon to influence and control its Black population is not at all ridiculous. For more than a century ago, Charles Darwin predicted in his book "The Origin of Species" (1859) that "the evolutionary theory would one day provide a new foundation for the science of psychology." The truth in his words has been borne out. The change came when modern advances in our understanding of the genetics of social behavior ushered in Sociobiology; a controversial new science of the biological study of social behavior of humans.
Since the 1950's, U.S. experimental psychologists and Cognitive scientists have developed ideas about the unconscious mental process that proposes that most of our mental processes happen outside of our awareness suggesting that the ability to control the behavior of people around us subconsciously is now a distinct possibility.
Moreover, over the past five decades, human sociobiology has transformed into an evolutionary psychology that has gained science the means and ability to control and, therefore, predict the actions and feelings of individuals or groups merely by the messages conveyed against them. According to this controversial use of psychology, the human mind is the most extraordinary part of the human body, and there seems to be little doubt, wrote biologist David Barash, "that the unconscious is real and that in certain obscure ways the forces of culture are all-powerful in shaping human behavior. Advances in these studies resulted in governments using psychology as a weapon for maintaining White dominance.
While this may still sound incredibly ridiculous or unbelievable for many, psychological warfare is a real method of warfare that is commonly used by the U.S. Government. It was even used during the Iraq war. The United States Military dropped propaganda leaflets on Iraq and planted favorable stories about the new Iraq in the Baghdad press, radio, and television media and also removed all mention of Saddam Hussein from the Baghdad grades school educational curricula. Its usage of psychological warfare has been ongoing throughout the entire combat operation in Iraq from the initial battle thru the so-called rebuilding of Iraq .
Moreover, the U.S. Government’s methods of rewriting the Iraq schools curriculum, thus creating a curriculum more favorable in its depiction of westerners/Whites and using the Iraqi national media to perpetuate propaganda and misinformation to facilitate their easier exploitation and suppression, are remarkably consistent with the current social conditions and experiences of African Americans. As for those who still doubt that such a conspiratorial dimension of racism exists at the governmental level in the United States, I strongly recommend that they read the National Security Council Memorandum– 46, and also Kenneth O’Reilley’s “Racial Matters: The FBI’s Secret File on Black America, 1960-1972.”
The objective of the United States government has always been to maintain its White dominance over its Black population, and clearly, psychological warfare meets this need—because it covertly creates a national climate that allows the government to suppress consensually the advancement of its African American population and to maintain its White dominance and national stability. Furthermore, history overwhelmingly demonstrates that the White race’s innate proclivity for racism, control, and dominance is much too deeply engrained for them to just merely give up their practices of implementing suppressive methods over its African American population.
Furthermore, the social structure of America's White societal elites was formed on the premise that there must be maintained a class of people to perform menial duties, to perform the drudgery work required to sustain life, and to take the lower paying jobs requiring “a lower order of intellect and skill.” Clearly, the method of psychological warfare provides the United States Governmental elites with a method for meeting this need but doing so with the added benefit of not appearing racist. The records of history show that the reincarnation of suppressive methods into forms more acceptable to the changing times is a common practice of the United States government as seen after the abolishment of slavery wherein its methods of using racist, oppressive treatment of its Black population was reincarnated into Jim Crow laws. And, also, let us not forget the many sorts of devious strategies and methods used to prevent Blacks from becoming registered voters. The historic and demonstrative evidence overwhelmingly reflects the reality that the U.S. government does manifest a proclivity for reinventing devious methods to suppress its Black population. This proclivity has led to the U.S. Government now using its proven method of psychological operations to control the advancement and growth of its Black population. It was the next logical choice for it provides the Government the benefit of the appearance of conducting humanitarian efforts to help its Black community while covertly seeking only to maintain its White dominance. Those who forget history are destined to have history’s crimes repeated against them.
THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE AGAINST AFRICAN AMERICANS
The objective of this psychological warfare against African Americans is to create a shift in victimization in behalf of whites that lessens pressure for social change on behalf of Blacks thus making the nation and the entire world insensitive to the plight of African Americans, thus successfully striping them of the national and international support that was acquired during the 1960's civil rights struggles. This is done by an immense campaign of false statistics and media reports degrading its back population and disproportionately portraying Black men as the face of crime and Black women as the face of welfare. These portrayals of African Americans are totally false and inaccurate but are necessary to make it appear that Black behavior is the reason for White racism in the U.S. Moreover, this method also makes any serious criticism of White racism almost impossible today. Not only does it tranquilize efforts on behalf of Blacks, it also affects attitudes that, when enacted through governmental policies, laws, and other legislation actions, serve to ensure that African Americans will not advance. Its effects are manifested in ideas, education, governmental policies, economic stratification, social segregation, housing markets, hiring and promotion practices, psychological issues, and minority access to a variety of social services and opportunity. It also creates a false justification for the legal system’s mistreatment of African Americans wherein they are disproportionately incarcerated, given stiffer sentences, and are more likely than other racial groups to be treated brutally, beaten, and fired upon by police officers while they are unarmed. Moreover, some studies have shown that this shift of victimization now reflects increasingly acrimonious beliefs and prejudiced perceptions about and against African Americans that are arguably stronger today than they were after emancipation.
The United States Government’s psychological operation of devaluing African Americans is not always recognized. In fact, in most cases, it is executed very subtly and is often done under the pretext of helping African Americans, while in fact actually exploiting them. One such an example was seen in August 1996, when then, President William “Bill” Clinton signed the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act, better known as the “Welfare Reform” Bill. During the ceremonial undertaking, which was broadcast on television to the entire nation and the world, the president was strategically accompanied by two African American welfare moms who were positioned on either side of him as he signed the new bill—perpetuating false images of African American women without using overt racism —thus feeding and perpetuating the racist stereotype that the largest recipients of welfare are “lazy Black mothers.” This image was filmed, photographed, and transmitted all over the world. These types of actions by the White House feed the government’s objective of changing the face of racism in America to reflect that the racial problem in America stems from behavior among African Americans which justifies White attitudes towards Blacks while producing psychological feelings of embarrassment, gratitude, and indebtedness among Blacks towards the American government. The fact, however, is that the majority of welfare mothers are White women, and regardless of the many false images of social programs of welfare and food stamps for the benefit of African Americans perpetuated through the media, the largest recipient of these benefits cannot and will never be African American women. For let us remember that, according to U.S. government statistics, Black women make up only 6 % of the nation’s total population. Therefore, even if a ridiculously high number like half of all Black women were welfare recipients that still would equate to only 3 % of the population. Clearly, the negative, fraudulent portrayal of Black women as being the majority of welfare moms is a prime example of psychological warfare.
Perhaps no president relied more heavily on the use of the psychological operation that portrayed African American Women as negative welfare queens than Ronald Reagan (Green and McCall, 1987). Reagan's career as an actor and spokesperson for General Electric provided him with an audience to redefine his storytelling style and to perfect the ability of appealing to the concerns and fears of White voters without the use of overtly racist appeals. Reagan's campaigns revolved around themes that exemplified the image of the Black welfare queen. Such was seen when he challenged Gerald Ford for the Republican Party nomination for president. Reagan gave an elaborate story of “welfare abuse” that appeared in the New York Times, February 15, 1976 , p1 which stated the following: "There's a woman in Chicago . She has 80 names, 30 addresses, 12 social security cards, and is collecting veteran benefits on 4 non-existing deceased husbands. And she is collecting social Security on her cards. She's got Medicaid, is getting food stamps, and she is collecting welfare under each name. Her tax-free income is over $150,000.” The speech emphasized how "they, the abusers, enjoy lives of leisure, whereas "we" [Whites] work harder than ever before with little chance of ever getting ahead.” The welfare queen abuse story played, and continues to play, well among the White masses, and its reference to the abuser leaves little doubt about the implied racial identity of the abuser without stating the racial identity of the abuser explicitly. The story then acquires a life of its own, far more elaborate and lucrative than before. At times, she has more kids and fewer husbands. Nevertheless, it worked because it delivered messages penetrating the consciousness of White voters across party lines. After Regan defeated Carter in the 1980 election, the welfare stories made it possible for him to reduce social programs. [Moreover, clearly the U.S. Government’s welfare program that awarded funds to the mother only when the father was kept out of the homes contributed significantly in the collapse of the Black nuclear family.]
While portraying most welfare moms in America as being Black women, the government’s psychological operation also disproportionately perpetuates the image Black men as the literal face of crime in America . Although commonly presumed accurate and accepted, this representation is totally inaccurate for it presents a problem of semantics; the numbers just does not properly add up. For according the U.S. government, African Americans make up just above 12% percent of the total American population. From this number, let us attempt to quantify these African Americans that make up most of America ’s criminals. Let’s begin by subtracting from this 12% percent the amount of 6% represented by Black women. This leaves just 6% percent of the total American population as being African American males. Let us now assume a ridiculously high number such as half of all Black men in America as criminals. This total number of African American male criminals would still only comprise just 3% percent of the total national population. Moreover, we did not even bother to subtract from that original 6% those African American males that (disproportionately) make up almost 35% of the United States military.
The point being made here is that it is, in fact, literally impossible for America ’s Black population to equate to what is negatively portrayed in the national media. The point being made here is also that the absolute number of African Americans is simply too small to equate the statistics and perpetuated images that suggest that Blacks are the face of crime in America . For even if at disproportionately high levels of crime within their own Black communities, the total number of African Americans males is too small to even remotely resemble what the media perpetuates. This is not the result that one would expect from watching the evening news or an episode of the television show "Cops". While some African Americans today live in conditions that have them resorting to crime, never before in the history of America has the actual number of criminal activities of any given year been higher among African Americans than Whites. The media perpetuation of Black males as the majority of criminals in America is clearly psychological operation at work. Moreover, research has disclosed that most serious crimes such as homicide, rape, and robbery and assault in inner cities are committed by a very small proportion of African Americans youths; some estimate a high of only 7% percent. Furthermore, the majority of crimes in America are committed by White males. [Their immensely larger population is a factor in this]. However, the media perpetuates the image that the majority of crimes are being committed by African American males.
Another fallacy contributing to the negative propaganda against African American males is that the majority of African American males are in engaged in the use of illegal drugs. However, to the contrary, a report conducted by William Drummond, a University of California at Berkeley journalism professor and co-author of a U.S. Justice Department-sponsored survey, showed that only 6 percent of African Americans had used cocaine in their lifetime, and a great majority of these respondents (65.5 percent) had used it fewer than 11 times. Among Whites respondents, 10.6 percent had used cocaine in their lifetime with 62.3 percent of those respondents saying they had used it fewer than 11 times.
These noted statistics are completely contrary of what is perpetuated by the racist media. Moreover, because the face of crime is now perpetuated as being Black, any effort by a politician or public figure to address the disproportionate number of African Americans incarcerated or given harsher sentences may now be construed as being soft on crime. Therefore, many Black politicians avoid this topic for fear of appearing soft on crime, which is political suicide.
This negative and derogatory portrayal of African Americans through the usage of psychological operations of influence was also made apparent during the LA riots of 1992. The media portrayal of the event painted the perception that the Black community was solely responsible for the riots and disturbances. However, according to reports of those arrested, more than a third had full time jobs and some 60% of the rioters and looters were made up of Hispanics and whites. A more recent example of the United States ’ deliberate devaluing of African Americans through the usage of psychological operations was seen during the 2005 flooding of New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. While many African American victims that where left behind suffered from hunger, dehydration, and the trauma of having loved ones dying all around them, the White media was more adept at portraying these Black victims as wild, inhuman, deviant criminals. The press presented, for the most part, those images of the desperate and suffering Black families that reinforced their negative and racist stereotypes. As seen, for example, in the desperation of many Black people who took water and food from the vacant stores -- actions deemed a necessity given the circumstances. However, the media painted the perception that most of these Black people were uncontrollable looters stealing equipment and appliances [although their homes were under water and there was no power within the city so, therefore, there existed no place to plug in electrical equipment or appliances]. Nevertheless, the images of Black people taking food and water were perpetuated as looting as “shown” in the constant repetition of the same 5-minute looping footage of so-called looters. On the other hand, Whites doing the same thing were portrayed in television coverage as “shopping for food.” If the “looting” by Blacks was as rampant as reported, why then was there the need to keep repeating the same 5-minute footage again and again? Then, there were the many unfounded rumors broadcast, not only nationally but also globally; that hospitals had been raided by drug addicts; and that there where many gang rapes of women and children in the New Orleans Convention Center; also that babies throats had been cut; and that Black thugs were shooting at rescuers. Although these rumors were later found to be untrue, the damage was already done against African Americans. Then their were the many insensitive racist remarks made by White officials and politicians, where one White official stated that "we couldn't get them out of the projects, however God did" .; another stated; "why are they complaining about the overcrowded conditions in the Superdome when they are accustomed to living [in the substandard conditions] in the ghetto". At a time when African Americans so desperately needed help, the U.S government seized the opportunity to further dehumanize and perpetuate derogatory propaganda about them. One African American victim recounted his experiences saying the following: “After four days of hell in the Superdome, they [the U.S. National Guards] forced men and women into separate lines to board the buses. When we questioned why we had to separate from our children, the National Guards drew their guns on us.” These events in the aftermath of the Hurricane are indicative of the American government’s sentiments towards its Black population. …What is more, African Americans are denigrated within every aspect of American society by the U.S. government’s psychological operation -- from their educational failures, their crime statistics, and also their national health statistic reports. Where, based upon the U.S. Government’s national health statistics and reports concerning the health of Black America, it appears as if the bodies of Black people are literally genetically and physically inferior to that of the bodies of Whites. However, when examined outside of governmental discretion and control, we see, to the contrary, that Blacks are America ’s greatest athletes. The point being made here is that it is only when statistics are totally in the hands of the White government that the bodies of Blacks appear physically inferior to Whites. These actions by the U.S. government are clearly a case psychological warfare at work for the mounting evidence is too great to be purely coincidental for us not to connect the dots -- it is in fact an exact match. This tendency to routinely subjugate African Americans within the American society is clearly a case of psychological warfare at work for it is too prevalent to be merely dismissed as an oversight or as being the work of a few local governments. It is being deliberately implemented at a national level. This modern racism, as herein defined, has had a serious deleterious effect on the United States as a whole. Therefore, the immediate and social conditions of African Americans will not change as long as our conditions are being covertly manipulated and encouraged by the White societal elites. For as long as Whites are keeping the scores, it will always appear to be that Blacks are on the losing team, in the sinking ship. As long as the White government is assessing the strengths, weaknesses, and crime and health statistics of its Black population, they will always use psychological operation to influence and encourage White dominance and Black suppression. A new reality for African Americans will only be built by a Black society that dares to assess its own weaknesses and strengths and that takes control of the education of their own children. IT'S EFFECT UPON AFRICAN AMERICANS This analogy was examined in a recent study within a classroom setting wherein Black and White participants were asked to list things that they hate most about Black people. When questioned, most of the Black respondents’ answers were almost completely in agreement with White respondents when asked the same question. ; The racist view of the dominant White culture permeates from every pore of the American society so unrelentingly that many African Americans themselves have actually acquired these same negative perceptions of themselves. Such is seen when African Americans refer to themselves as “niggers;” the White doll syndrome where Black children refuse to play with Black dolls; the cultural pathology wherein Black people negatively label or discriminate against the more ‘typical’ phenotypes such as wider broad noses, coarser hair, larger lips, and ‘darker’ skin amongst themselves. And also as seen where African Americans spend millions of dollars each year on hair softeners, hair extensions, and bleaching skin creams, hair coloring dye, and colored contact lens. Now, many are undergoing cosmetic surgeries reducing the sizes of their noses and lips. It has become so common in fact that it is done unconsciously by African Americans. The premise of a victimized group acquiring the character of their oppressor even when directed against the victimized group was first applied to the experience of Jews living in the pre war Germany by Dr. Sigmund Freud and Dr. Bruno Bettelheim ., but was also soon applied to the experience of African-Americans, by Gordon Allport and Frantz Fanon . Dr. Herbert Mead, a Social psychologist, says that; "People are not born knowing who they are, they instead acquire their image of themselves over time by realizing their natural abilities and by constantly receiving messages from within their environment". Furthermore, that "One's self-image derives, in large part, from how one is viewed by others -- school, and the broader society, and what one is taught of himself. (Mead) This premise is particularly unsettling given the day-to-day societal denigration and devaluing experienced by African Americans in America . One would expect them to exhibit some degree of self hatred or mental harm for there can be no doubt that it would be extremely difficult for any race or group not to suffer some psychological harm under such extreme degradation. Stephen Biko described such types of feeling in Donald Woods’ book entitled Biko © 1987 by saying "You begin to feel that there is something not quite right about yourself, about your humanity, and that it has something to do with your Blackness, because no matter how dumb or smart a White child is, he is born into that world”… “But you, the Black child, smart or dumb, you're born into this world and smart or dumb you'll die in it.” Moreover, these feelings may also affect the extent to which many African Americans realize their full human potential, therefore causing deep feelings of hopelessness, despair, and self hatred that causes many to react in an intropunitive manner; that is, they turn their frustrations inward against the self distrusting themselves, doubting themselves, and then subsequently hating and fighting among themselves making them more vulnerable to incarceration, suicide, homicide and substance abuse. HOW IT DIVIDES AFRICAN AMERICANS The U.S. government’s doctrine of psychological warfare teaches to meticulously study your targeted group thus learning their strengths and weakness. And that once you’ve learned them you then exploit their weakness and attack their strengths unrelentingly. Logic dictates that given that unity and cohesion among African Americans was credited for the demise of White America’s past system of blatant institutionalized racism, that destroying this unity would be an essential objective of the psychological warfare against African Americans. The overrepresentation and exaggeration of Black on Black crime statistics is a propaganda tool in the psychological operation of influence designed to create fear, hatred, and distrust among Blacks thus ultimately dividing the African American community. The governmental psycho-social treatment of African Americans is designed to mold the character of self hatred. It is designed to destroy the Black unity and cohesion that historically was the cornerstone of the civil rights gains and the survival of African Americans for more than four hundred years of racial oppression. …. The fact, however, in regards to the overrepresentation of Black-on-Black crime in the media is that crimes within all communities are usually committed by the predominant racial groups that make up those communities. This fact holds true for every race and community. Therefore most crimes, including homicide, within predominately Asian communities are committed by Asians and this remains the same for Latin communities and also White communities. In fact in America , every year more Whites are killed by Whites than any other ethnic group. Yet, we never ever hear the phrase White-on-White crime do we? In fact, although all racial groups are more often killed by their own group, rarely do we ever hear terms such as Asian-on-Asian crime, or Latino-on-Latino crimes. It is only of African Americans that we hear this. Why? Because there is an intentional attempt by the U.S. government to keep its African American population divided. This is deliberately done to destroy the Black unity and cohesion that historically was the cornerstone of the civil rights gains and the survival of African Americans for more than four hundred years of racial oppression -- thus obtaining the "Divide and Rule” objective. Then there is also the indirect violence that is produced in the Black communities through the feelings of hopelessness, desolation, and self-hatred. This alone would constitute an act of terrorism by the United States Government, and yet it is never held accountable. … …This psychological operation also discourages our brightest and most gifted African Americans who historically were responsible for gathering and motivating the lesser-educated and complacent masses of African Americans to demand equality. Many of these Black elites are rendered disillusioned and frustrated, therefore now having fallen victim in adopting the same disdain and contemptuous views towards the lesser fortunate Black masses as their White counterparts do, themselves saying that the rhetoric of victimization of racism by the lesser fortunate Blacks are merely excuses. They’ve adopt the same ideology and character of their White counterparts in regards to the Black masses; thus making the case that, if they have made it then, all those other less fortunate Blacks can also do the same. Many of these successful Blacks have also moved to the suburbs segregating themselves from the Black masses and, instead of focusing their efforts on the suffering of these Black masses, [Now wealthy, comfortable, and complacent victims of decadence, escapism, and isolated from the exploitation and suffering of the masses] now redirect their attention towards trying to show Whites that not all Blacks are like these negative images depicted. One such an example of this disdain and frustration towards their own Black masses as seen when the actor/ philanthropist turned Black spokesperson Bill Cosby made the televised comments stating that "you Black men need to stop beating on your women when you can't find a job." He, living outside of the ghettos, has developed the same prejudices against the masses of Blacks as his White neighbors. Moreover, what, if anything, does Mr. Cosby know of life within the Black ghettos of America today than what the White propaganda media gives him. Moreover, his comments were continually replayed by the media to perpetuate their racist objectives. ……This psychological warefare operation of influence also undermines Black leadership. Many Black leaders today -- although most will perhaps never publicly admit this -- have become disillusioned and frustrated by the false statistics and representation of their fellow African American masses. Such is seen when on November 27,1993, the Rev. Jessie Jackson said " there is nothing more painful for me at this point in my life than to walk down the street and hear foots steps and start to think of robbery and then turn around and see that it’s someone White and feel relieved.”.. “How humiliating”. Many leaders, in profound frustration and desperation, have called out to the African American community for a spiritual revival of themselves. Moreover, many of our Black leaders have become complacent in terms of significance, gains, and effectiveness. Today, there is no more real striving, no more real struggle, and no significant gains made. Many of our leaders have become insignificant pied pipers who lead the following back masses on outdated foot marching strategies while shouting out the cries of racism and demands for equality. The only effectiveness these strategies serve is as a platform to give the illusion and appearance of hope and action. However, within such a mortifying environment as Black people endure psychologically in daily life, perhaps hope is a good thing. .TT thtPROFITABLE INDUSTRY OF RACISM The secret infrastructure of the American judicial legal system is one where African Americans are being systematically, disproportionately incarcerated and the propaganda of psychological warfare is then used to justify their state. The propaganda of negative misrepresentations of African Americans males as the being the prominent face of crime creates a justification for America's disproportionate mistreatment of African American males within the U.S. judicial system. This propaganda creates a false justification for the disproportionately high number of African American males incarcerated and the longer sentences they receive. . These inequalities within the legal system are beneficial to the government in that it stimulates and maintains the stability of the economy in terms of building more prisons and providing more jobs. The prison industry in the United States is big business that uses a modern form of inhumane exploitation of African Americans. The U.S. has locked up more people than any other country: a half a million more than China , which has a population five times greater than the U.S. The U.S. holds 25% of the world’s prison population, but only 5% of the world’s people. (CNN, ABC News) The number of inmates includes a disproportionately high percentage of African Americans. The prison industry in the U.S. grew from a population less than 300,000 in 1972 to 2 million in 2000. A significant factor in this growth is privatization of prisons. Private prisons are the biggest business in the prison industry complex. They receive a guaranteed amount of money for each prisoner, independent of what it costs to maintain each one. The secret to low operating cost is having a minimal number of guards for the maximum number of prisoners. … ….Ten years ago, there were only five private prisons in the U.S. There are now more than 100. The private contracting of prisoners for work fosters incentives to incarcerate more African Americans. Prison depends on this income. At least 37 states have legalized the contracting of prison labor by private corporations. Corporate stockholders who profit from prison workers lobby for longer sentences in order to expand their work force and profits; the system feeds itself / the prison industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the U.S. , and its investors are on Wall Street. The list includes such companies as IBM, Boeing, Motorola, Microsoft, AT&T, Texas Instrument, Dell, Compaq, Honeywell, Hewlett- Packard, Nortel, Lucent Technologies, Revlon, Macy, Target Stores, Pierre Cardin, and many more. The prison privatization boom began in the 1980s under the Ronald Reagan but reached its height in the 1990s under William Clinton when Wall Street stocks did extremely well. Clinton ’s program for cutting the federal workforce resulted in the Justice Department contracting with private prison corporations. ……..The societal and economic factors of racism in which the White elites suppress their lower Black class in order to maximize profits is a very profitable industry. A hidden fact is that the U.S. Government’s revenues from its exploitation of its Black population is actually greater than what it spends on programs for the benefit of African Americans. In the 1980s, Michael Reich developed the segmentation theory of ‘divide and rule,’ which attempts to explain racism from an economic point of view. In this theory, Reich proposed that the ultimate goal in society is to maximize profits. As a result, the exploiter will attempt to use any means to (1) suppress higher wages among the exploited class -- the cheap labor aids the success of the U.S. economy, (2) weaken the bargaining power of the working class, often by attempting to split it along racial lines, (3) promote prejudices, (4) segregate the Black community, (5) ensure that the elite benefit from the creation of stereotype and racial prejudices against the Black community. Reich argues that the major corporations in the U.S. (e.g., Time Warner, Coca Cola, General Motors, etc.) all have at least one member on each other’s corporate boards of directors. As a result, it is in the interest of these members to maximize profits while employing the above devices. The mere fact of these corporate executives sharing economic corporate power combined with the quest for economic profit has now paved the way for economic discrimination. ……In her book, Unequal Justice: A Question of Color; Professor Coramae Richey Mann, an African American professor in criminal justice, writes that the criminal justice system’s goal is to warehouse Blacks and other minorities in prisons and to expand the criminal justice enterprise so as to provide jobs for the majority groups in the law industry (law enforcement officers, probation officers, and lawyers). The implementation of the ‘three strikes you’re out law’ and enhanced sentences for felons found with crack cocaine, rather than its more potent powder form found more often among Whites, are deliberately designed to assure that White dominance is maintained because they are directly aimed at imprisoning Black males thus keeping them from being productive members of the Black community. The high number of Black men incarcerated also directly slows down the Black pregnancy growth rate and this also strips African Americans of political power through the loss of voting rights among our Black felons. The many governmental program implemented for the benefit of African Americans are often done in a manner that fosters humiliation and the sense of obligation among African American toward its government. The fact, however, remains that African Americans, although making up just 12 percent of the national population, contributes billions of dollars each year to the Gross Domestic Product. The profits earned by the U.S. government from its covert exploitation of its Black population far exceed any amount of funds actually spent by the government on social programs benefiting African Americans. ……Clearly, there are many African Americans that may still find this monumental disclosure to be ridiculous. However, it would, in fact, be more ridiculous and, indeed, absurd or a case of collective amnesia to believe that a racial group such as Whites [the most arrogant and rapacious group; possessing an unprecedented history and proclivity for brutal racism; they, who are the most indomitable in history; of which all other races have been either their enemies or victims; they, who alone have taken possession of the physical and moral world and have planned and waged aggressive, unjustifiable wars and have committed crimes against humanity such as genocide and slavery] would just simply give up their innate racist proclivity for dominance so easily. Moreover, exposing the Black Matrix is not at all about inflaming racial hatred and anti White-ism. It is about informing our communities about what is being deliberately done to them as a matter of national interest so that they may stop accepting these hardships and, instead, confront them. For there is neither a struggle nor fight more pressing for African Americans today than the eradication of this real-life Black Matrix that is used to suppress us, confuse us, and turn us against each other. [ Note:The Black churches and civil rights organizations cannot address this fact because the United States Government would strip them of their annual budget funding and 501C-3 nonprofit tax exept status-so therefore they all merely turn a blind eye essentially selling out the massess of our people. ]
