The media’s distorted views of Black America

We Black people must continue the long march of our parents. A march for a more just, and equal society. However we cannot solve the challenges of our time while being divided and self hating.
This profound Black division and self hatred is greatly attributed to a covert social engineering and mass manipulation program of where inwhich African Americans are deliberately bombarded with false deplorably negative misinformation about them that detrimentally and collectively effects Blacks self perceptions and unity.
The media’s distorted views of Black America that amplifies the negative to the point that it distorts reality are more than just biased media reports. They function as psychosocial programs that covertly use the mass media’s social engineering and mass manipulative capabilities as a tool for ensuring the continuance of white dominance and control. And while although this psychosocial treatment is less blatant than the earlier racist systems used in the past against Blacks, its affects are very detrimentally real and proficient.
The national media’s reports of its black population are totally comprised by whites and they in fact can be neither confirmed nor refuted by its Black recipients. This unfair arraignment has always given America’s white elites the ability to collectively influences and manipulate the self perceptions of Black America, and to negatively define Black America before the entire world.
The white elites have always been cognizant of this powerful position and ability and have always secretly used it to meet their unrelentingly objective of maintaining white dominance and control. Through their corporate owned and government controlled media outlets, the white elites perpetuated depictions have expressed a profoundly distorted view of African Americans. A view that sees their white racism as no longer a significant problem in America and that revises the past to conveniently make them appear less inhumane through out America’s brutal racist history. A portrayal that also elevates what is wrong with Black America above all that we know is right with Black America. Their portrayal of Black America is one that ignores all facts that conflict with their own racist conceptions and sees the endemic problems of Black America as rooted primarily with Blacks themselves, instead of emanating from their white racism.
This media driven psychosocial treatment manipulates Blacks into accepting white dominance and white institutions over their lives by fraudulently depicting whites as the standard of ethics and morale value-- despite a brutal history to the contrary-- and while portraying Blacks as being all that’s wrong with America.
Through their fraudulent assessments the white media subjects African Americans to seeing only the fraudulent worst within themselves. It tells African Americans that they are their own worst enemies and that Black unity, cohesion and aspiration no longer existed and Blacks accepts these negative assessment thus making it our reality. [Blacks own negative experiences with fellow Blacks merely act as confirmations to what is being implied through the white controlled media]. It fraudulently suggests that Blacks cannot govern themselves [This is even done in how Africa is portrayed to African Americans.] Sadly this media psychosocial treatment convinces many African Americans to accept this (self hating) frame of thought causing Black disunity at a time when we need unity; it distracts us from solving real problems; increases self loathing at a time when we need to come together to face the complicity in our condition. It prevents the African-American community from forging the alliances within it needed to bring about real change. It also facilitates a national consensual setting of where Blacks cries for equality are lesser heard and the mistreatment of Blacks appears more justified.
Moreover, its distorted deplorable depictions of Black America conforms many African Americans to the caricatures being peddled by many white conservative commentators. Because some of what it shows to us is made to look cool many of our youths are imitating ridiculous behavior and habits. It also causes many Blacks to function as amnesiacs – forgetting the history of white barbarity while simultaneously developing profound admiration for whiteness and contempt for their Blackness.
I am aware that because most African Americans are unfamiliar with this media deployed psychosocial method of exercising white racism, therefore many will find it too difficult to contemplate. I am also aware that there will be some that will see this article as a wrongful attempt to absolve the black race of all of our own responsibilities or as a misguided suggestion that Blacks ignore all statistics and live their lives vicariously. I can assure you it is not. The disclosure that there is a media driven psychosocial treatment of Black American is true and it is directly intertwined with the extensive challenges negatively impacting Black America today.
We (Blacks) will never be able to come together and solve our many challenges as long as our existence is being covertly manipulated and defined to us by whites. For as long as the power to assess the strengths and weaknesses of Black people remains in the hands of white people they will always deem it necessary to use the national media as a psychosocial program that transmits false information that perpetuates white superiority over Blacks.
African Americans should not allow themselves to become complacent or be made delusional by the historically election of President Barrack Obama. They must recognize that America’s white statuesque does still exist and still harbors deep-seated racial biases. It is more likely that the white elites (they that are the true rulers of the country and that maintain their powerful positions regardless of who is President)will instead use this historic presidency to restore America’s eroded global image and standing in the world, rather than bringing true equality to African Americans. President Obama himself has stated that; “I have never been so naive as to believe that we can get beyond our racial divisions in a single election cycle, or with a single candidacy”. This media driven psychosocial treatment of Black people will continue to be used by the white elitesregardless of whom is sitting in the white house.
The prospect for a better tomorrow will remain grim for African American –as with Blacks through out the world--as long as it is whites that are telling Black people who and what we are.
Think about it; when history’s most diabolical and racist group are is in control of the world’s most proficient propaganda machine (media) who knows what “bull shit” will be peddled as the truth.
As long as it is the white elites that are controlling the media's societal score board it will always be Blacks that are on the losing team, because they (the white elites) will always disseminated fraudulent misinformation that implies their white superiority over Blacks.
I believe this is an issue that we can no longer ignore. To merely ignore this disclosure and label it as misguided or even reverse racism, without recognizing that it is grounded in legitimate concerns would be a monumental mistake.
Although this literature references African Americans, much of what is discussed is applicable to African people throughout the world.
