      Why Are Black People So Ignorant?

      WHY ARE BLACK PEOPLE SO IGNORANT?

      It is for sure that many Black people in America are ignorant. Yes, they are ignorant because they have not challenged a system that uses Black people to assist in their own oppression. Blacks are so ignorant in America that they have voted for and supported Uncle Toms as leaders every since Blacks gained the right to vote.

      Is it possible that Blacks have set up an abnormal tradition to accept second class citizenship as a way of life? Is it a way of life for Blacks to accept and assist in their own oppression? Would Blacks in America still be on slave plantations if there had not been a Civil War? Even after Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves, many slaves did not want to leave the plantation. Sadly in 1999 many Blacks still do not want to leave the plantation.
      Meanwhile, the class structure in the Black community pits one class against another. Thus, Black on Black discrimination results from a group of so-called bourgeois Blacks that attempt to dominate the mass Black population. Thus, the Black community cannot just blame the White community, because there is enough blame in the Black community.

      With all the corruption and sell outs in the Black community there are also people in the Black church involved in this conspiracy. Black preachers are a significant group within the mass Back population that has everlasting tunnel vision. Thus, many Black preachers as they defy the written scripture are on an unbending campaign to gain a seat on the first pew in Hell.

      Instead of fulfilling their Christian duty by standing up against injustice, Black ministers are busy robbing the people and supporting those that support Black on Black discrimination. In clear violation of the scriptures and religious morality, Black preachers are making a mockery out of religion and evidently think God is a fool. Black preachers you may fool some of the people but for sure you have not fooled God, he knows you have totally disrespected His holy word.

      Beloved FJ;

      I overstand your pain.

      RE-LIE-GION IS A MENTAL ILLNESS, and where we find Mental Illnesses, we find ignorance.

      The true Duty is to our Divine right minds, that which reveals truth and reality.

      Check out those links about RELIGION BEING A MENTAL ILLNESS, and if you do not check them out Beloved FJ, there is an Afrikan saying. The one who do not like to read is equal to the one who can not read.

      Do not just read FJ, Heed, so you can succeed out of the HUman being RE-LIE-GION mind-set. You are better than that FJ, IF ONLY, you will allow truth and reality to Intercourse and masturbate your mind. Oops! those words are the forbidden words in religion. Look those words up too Beloved FJ, and see the deepr meaning to them.

      Many of the Black preachers, if not all, are Like MUTT DOGS, they will not BARK loud and tell the people enmies of liars and deception is among them, because they will reeal who they are, liars and deceivers.

      Divine Thinkers are like Rottweillers and BULDOGS.They will approach lies and deception like a rottweiller chewing on a bone when it comes to lies and deception as the Mighty warrirors on these thread as have demonstrated. Life is an action given to the body by the Eternal Essence, therefore is sacred, but all Life is not Divine because Divine is an act of expression with a set behavior and attitude of expression that is done in Harmony, Order and Balance. Return to your once Divine mind.

      Human Being is a sign of dissension and not ascension, therefore Human Beings are not Divine Beings, even though all life is sacred and not Divine.

      Religious people must be careful of trying to tear a fence down without first knowing what is on the other side of the fence.

      Beloved FJ, do you lack that much knowlege, that you do not know that you can not win with these warriors, and you can not wrestle and box with truth and reality because it will be a KNOCK DOWN every time? Thinking with both sides of the brains (left and right) willl land you smack dab into the PROMISE LAND (right) THINKERS mind-set, so that you can be the Master of your Own Temple DOMAIN (mind). Please, please stop injecting and drinking Religious Poison.

      Beloved FJ, how we tell lies about God. God is not a person, just a Divine expression of Divine action, so if you are a Divine Being, you are an entity of the Godly Essence, causing you to be an expressed action of a god.

      I overstand Beloved Fj, if you do not understand because truth and reality can be very dangerous and can cause more brain damage to an already brain damamge mind, those who are clothed in water, and comes up agaisnt the Fire of truth and reality. I overstand your pain more than you know.

      May you Bed down with Truth, and cover your self with the Blanket of Reality.

      HILY/A

      goddess IsIs

      Oops! Did I say goddess, I forgot those in RE-LIE-Gion do not even know they are gods and goddesses. They are not free thinkers, lien-holders to their own conscious, just conformist to lies and deception. I forgot that you all are the ones who Have a form of godliness, but deny the pwoer within.

      Is Christianity The Key To Black Liberation?

      My Beloved Sister,

      Peace be unto you. Thank you for your comments. I agree that those that do not read are lost and foolish. As we digest each others views I trust that you will see that there is a deep mental illness among those that don't reallze that this World was Created by a Higher Power.
      Peace and Love,
      Brother Carl, FreedomJournal

      ESSAYS ON BLACK CHRISTENDOM

      PART 1: IS CHRISTIANITY THE KEY TO BLACK LIBERATION?

      IS CHRISTIANITY THE KEY TO BLACK LIBERATION?

      In the name of God, Master of the universe, the Ruler of the earth.
      We bear witness to the one and only God, Jehovah, Yahweh and his son our Savior Lord Jesus Christ. We pray that those that read these words will become enlightened and come to realize the existence of the Creator and His ultimate power. We also recognize our duty as a messenger of the Creator to speak to a very important question. We pray for the guidance of Almighty God and for the blessings of wisdom and understanding of the Word of God. Because without this understanding, our efforts will be for naught.

      A friend and Brother recently informed me of a very important post on one of the popular Message Boards on the Internet. The post appeared on Black Voices and the title notes that Christianity stifled the Black Liberation Struggle. Mr. Mann a very astute Brother posted this message that has raised a great deal of concern on the Board and has motivated many of us to continue to pursue answers as to the plight of Black America.

      The following Notes in Black History are not necessarily a rebuttal but a further statement in regard to what Mr. Mann set out to do with this article. But, in our case, Psyche Publishing will look at this question from various points of view. These views will include Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and Black Liberation philosophy.

      As a preface we do not intend to ridicule or make unconstructive criticisms about any religion. Other religions are not the cause for the conflict of Christianity with Black Liberation. For the record Christianity has no problems. Man who claims to embrace Christianity has the problems. Many of those that claim to be Christians are racist, Uncle Toms, false prophets and charlatans of the highest order. God does not condone the hustling game in the church. The lost souls that play con in the church as healers, fortune tellers and pimps will meet an eternal death that man cannot comprehend.
      One should respect the beliefs of other people, regardless as to whether we agree or disagree. The most important question is, is the person sincere? I respect my enemies, if they truly believe in what they believe. Since I have strong beliefs I know and understand what motivates believers in any cause. For the record many people do not believe in anything. For example sincere and principled thought is long standing and consistent. Frivolous thought is ever changing and indecisive. Many times this thought is based on material things like money. Thus, many people are paid to think and do anything or nothing. But the serious and principled person cannot be bought. The Bible notes the blessings that will be bestowed upon the righteous. Those that survive the storm of the sins of man and the devil will have everlasting life. Are you willing to serve God and suffer the trials and tribulations of a believer in a world so set with the ways of Satan and evil?

      As we return to the preface statements on respect, we come with a heart of Thanksgiving and compassion for all of mankind. We do not come to bash, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Catholicism, Jehovah Witnesses, African religions or any other religion. The believers find information in the Bible, the Torah, the Koran, the Jerusalem Bible, and the African Book of the Dead and various other Holy books on the religions of the world.

      Christians believe in Christ. Other religions do not believe in Christ. It is clear that Christians believe that the way to the Father is through Christ and this is the way to the Peace and Paradise. We also know for example that Muslims and Jews do not believe in Christ. But, devout Muslims and Jews believe in God. If they are incorrect in this belief, God will be the Judge. Thus, man takes away from his tribute to God by denouncing other religions and claiming his religion is the only way to Peace and Paradise. Rest assured that God knows. Thus, there will be condemnations and blessings from God. This will come at the Day of Judgment by Almighty God and not man. Surely man has no power except what God has gifted him with.

      For the sake of organization and for clarity this review of Christianity and Black Liberation will review various questions:
      1. What are the origins of man?
      The review of this question will reveal the Biblical origins of man and the scientific origins of man. For the record many Biblical scholars and anthropologists have come to realize the conformity of science and the Bible.
      2. Where was Christianity established?
      This question will also review the origins of Judaism and Islam.
      3. Where were Blacks introduced to Christianity?
      The historical development of any phenomenon is a very important aspect in determining who, what and where of a particular subject.
      4. What was....? Is the impact of Christianity on Blacks in America?
      What did slavery have to do with the attitude of Blacks and Christianity?
      5. How has false teachings, false prophets affected Christianity?
      To review this question we will take a detailed look at independent thinking.
      6. Did the advocates of Black Power (Black Revolutionaries), Marxist-Leninism, Black Nationalism and Cultural Nationalism become confused about Christianity?
      Finally we will review what may prove to be the most significant question affecting Christianity in the Black community.
      7. Is the confusion of the Black church and the Black preacher the most significant problem of Christianity for Black people?
      The false teachings in the church and the false prophets are the most critical problems impacting on Christianity today. The hell bent preachers are following Satan and not God. These charlatans, rogues and scoundrels bear much of the blame for the confusion of the church. Thus, these opportunists have helped racists to use Christianity to defeat many aspects of the Black Liberation struggle. I pray that a new day is approaching. This new day will replace these false prophets with real men of God. The book tells us so. Let it be written that these things will come to past.
      Genesis notes the Creation of man. What do the scientists say about the origin of man?

      This Page is dedicated to a critique of the Black Preacher. Religion (Christianity) has had a historic presence in the Black community. Thus, the Black church has been the cornerstone for Black religious experiences. The Black church has also been a central meeting place for the pursuit of Freedom, Justice and Equality in the social, political and economic arenas for Black people.

      Therefore, Black Preachers have a great responsibility. However, the greatest responsibility of the Black Preacher is to God. Meanwhile, from our analysis many Black Preachers have forsaken God. The following articles will bring this question up for review. Thus, we attempt to make an analysis of why have SO many Black Preachers left God. We also come to warn the righteous of their responsibility and duties.

      I wonder the same. I may catch hell for saying this, but many of us are socially retarded, yes RETARDED. We know no other way, and have a fear of failure so intense that we dumb-down and give up. The world KNOWS of our capabilities, and are deathly intimidated by the slightest inkling of intellect among us. I guess we have the gift and the curse.

      Peace
      Peace:

      As the Afrikan mind is under , we must understand: the to our collective success lies in unity. We will never achieve this without , nor with our minds on

      I think fear, dependency, materalism, individualism, consummerism, jealousy and envy have the lion share of us stuck on stupid. You know white disease. We really get it from the generations that come before us--that is why it is so important to think outside the white box and thus break the cycle. We must socio-materially and psycho-culturally neutralize the enemy without and eject the enemy within. But these things require a physial, mental and spiritual crisis--even physial death. And you know we ain't bout to die for freedom.

      WHY ARE BLACK PEOPLE SO IGNORANT?
      "Have you forgotten that once we were brought here, we were robbed of our name, robbed of our language, we lost our religion, our culture, our God...and many of us by the way we act...we even lost our MIND!"--Dr. Khallid Abdhul Muhammad

      Unity Vs. Disunity in the Black Community


      0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
      Peace and Love, I am grateful for all of your comments.
      Brother, Carl, FreedomJournal

      CONFLICTING REALITIES IN BLACK AMERICA

      Truth for this scorned flock has been the sojourn of a backwards merry-go-round. Rendering these poor wretched souls dizzy with lies turned into right, fledgling aimlessly behind charlatans of the night who profit from their degradation.



      Unity Vs. Disunity in the Black Community


      Conflict and confrontation between unity and disunity is an ongoing disruptive force in the Black community. Being one and indivisible by nature or definition is a broad description of what is unity. Why do other minority groups in the U.S. have very little if any conflict between Unity vs. Disunity? If Black Americans respond in an abnormal fashion when the question of Unity arises, what are of some of the factors that cause this negative response?

      "Sun Boy" one of my most trusted advisors began to advise me on this very important question. "The first evidence of the conflict between Unity and Disunity occurred on the slave plantations. The seeds of Disunity were planted in the minds of Black slaves as a means of control." Sun Boy concluded his statement by saying "I would like to yield to one of the greatest philosophers' in our family Plum Good Red."
      Red" went on to say "the second seeds of Disunity were planted soon after the period of Reconstruction. Blacks were no longer slaves, but citizens with the right to vote. As the White backlash moved to deny Blacks the right to vote the seeds of disunity grew. Those that sought to profit from Black Disunity moved to manipulate Blacks in every way possible."

      "Southwest Willie" at this point asked to respond to the Black Disunity question. Ingrained in " Willie's" response is the economic motive. As you know, economics is said to be the main reason for all the confusion in the Black community. Willie responded by saying "as the economic motive for self gained prominence, Black leadership followed in their bid for the highest stakes. Competition and disagreement between those that had been assigned leadership roles became evident. The conflict over leadership maintained a divided community, but this conflict became a bargaining chip with the powers that had sanctioned Disunity."

      Once again I would like to thank my advisors for the insightful information they have shared with us. It is a crying shame that Black people have allowed White America to shrewdly trick them to oppress themselves. It is for sure that Black people are the most confused group of people on earth. Is there any end to this mass parade of ignorance by Black people?

      "Memphis Slim" spoke in a tone of hope and doubt. "Surely the legacy of slavery helped to maintain inferiority complexes for Blacks, thus, giving rise to the Black American abnormal behavior toward Unity. Has the legacy of slavery caused Disunity in contemporary times? The Disunity of Black people today amounts to the greatest con game on earth that results in Black self hatred. It is for sure that White America has shrewdly tricked Black people to oppress themselves.

      For example Black on Black murder, drug addiction, rampant Uncle Tomism and blatant Black on Black discrimination are examples of the shrewd trick played on Blacks. So as the seeds of Disunity and discontent are sowed in the contemporary period let's move to another variable. We gain more clarity by including the effect of Black organizations in our discussion.

      At this point our resident Uncle Tom "South Georgia Pete" wanted to know "why are you always talking abut Civil Right organizations?" Since "Pete" did not care to respond, he evidently just wanted to ask a question.
      I asked 'Southwest Willie" "what is going on with Black organized efforts to uplift the Black man and woman?"

      "South West Willie" began by saying "Carl anything that exists as it applies to the Black experience should be evaluated, critiqued and analyzed. In many instances some of our so-called Civil Rights organizations and leaders have supported the cause of Disunity. As the economic motive continues to be a motivating force, many of these leaders have sought to ride the back of racism and oppression for their own self gain. This misdirected and divided leadership is also further conflicting when we make an intelligent analysis of Civil Rights organizations."

      By now "South Georgia Pete" was getting very upset. Since "Pete was sober, he didn't attack "Southwest Willie" and thank God he left me alone because I have suffered enough attacks during my short career as a writer."Pete"wanted to ask another question. "Pete's " question was "haven't Civil Rights organizations done anything for Black people?" The West End Professor came on the scene and wanted to respond to the question. For the record the "Professor" claims he is attending church every Sunday and claims to be a born again Christian.

      The Professor began to speak. "He first reminded us that he is a scholar of the highest order. Also the Professor noted that his credentials were in order no matter what anybody said because he was trained at a great Black institution."

      At this point even "South Georgia Pete" made some sense when he said "Professor are you drunk? We asked you about Civil rights organizations." Since we couldn't get any sense out of the Professor, I withdrew the question. For the record though Civil Rights organizations have had an initial impact, but it is now the 90's.

      Once again in conclusion "Rat" wants to ask some questions. As you know "Rat" is one of the most notorious and low life individuals of all times. But since "Rat" has become one of my advisors he has toned down, and very seldom uses profanity. Hell, after all "Rat" has an extensive vocabulary, the following are "Rat's" critical questions on Civil Rights organizations:
      1. "What groups other than Black Americans were involved in the formation of Civil Rights organizations? What role have these groups played over time?
      2. Why don't Civil Rights organizations re- think in the realm of positive and negative gains, Civil Rights legislation, especially the question of education?
      3. Why have Civil Rights organizations felt that symbolism will relieve us of social problems?
      4. Why do Civil Rights organizations have so much difficulty realizing that we can solve some of our own problems?
      5. Why do Civil Rights organizations deny the priority of Black economic parity?

      On a final word from the moderator. As an update to the year 2001. Why are the Black Marxists Rogues so intent on attacking all Black people that don't agree with them? Are there any truly Socialists organizations in the United States? Are there any Socialists leaders in America who are real Marxists? What percentage of the membership of (Socialists Parties, Organizations), these Groups are real Marxists? If these people are not Marxists who are they? Also why do they act and talk like Marxists? As an aside could most of the so-called Marxists in America get hired in Hollywood? Finally are Marxists in America a breed that has died as sure as those who bowed to King James? Therefore can you find a Monarchist in America before you could find a real Marxists?

      What is Your Definition of "Black" People?

      Peace Beloved Family!

      It has been a while...
      I pray that this may find you and yours in the best of health and spirits~striving to be yourself and uplift our people...

      I do not refer to people who are ignorant as "black" people...
      To me, there is an excuse to be made for people who may be oblivious to the facts and the truth that exists in this plane of thought.

      However, if you have all of the facts at your disposal, books thrown in your face and movies/documentaries that you deliberately ignore- to watch BET...
      then, you are a person who goes beyond ignorant, you are a disgrace to Black people everywhere!

      I personally dont claim "ignorant" people of color, nor do i want to... and furthermore, in my eyes, you arent "Black" if you are "ignorant"...you are a "NEGRO" (Dead person/corpse).

      Peace
      Lotus!

      The Name Game: African, Black, Nigger, Negro, Colored, Afro-american, African-america


      0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
      THE NAME GAME: AFRICAN, BLACK, NIGGER, NEGRO, COLORED, AFRO-AMERICAN, AFRICAN-AMERICAN
      Man Does Not Know My Name

      Black people are once again confused. This time they are confused because they don't know if they want to be called Black are African-American. Since this is an important question and in many instances very confusing I have given this question very serious thought. In fact I even went to see my friend and advisor Southwest Willie.

      As always Southwest Willie was anxious to talk about this question. The following are some of the positions "Southwest Willie has on the question of Black or African-American, as a name for Black people born in America.

      "The group of people in America who are distinguished as Blacks have a long list of names. In fact, we can determine important historical facts from the time periods in which Black people were distinguished by names like Colored, Negro etc."

      But before we look at the historical development of all of these names, Southwest Willie asked the question why? He said,
      "If White people are not calling Blacks something other than Black; Blacks are calling themselves some other name other than Black. It is for sure that Blacks, like other races, have the right and responsibility to distinguish themselves as a group with an ethnic identity of their own. So, why don't Blacks settle for the obvious name, Black, and be done with it?"

      By this time Southwest Willie was fired up. He wouldn't stop talking. He continued by saying
      "This name game is a constant campaign by White America to confuse Black people about their history, heritage and origins, and we as Black Americans should note that the name game has worked. So much so, that some Blacks get involved in playing the name game too. When White people have named Blacks, Blacks have come along and named themselves something else. Thus, constantly confusing Black people, about who they are."

      "But, Southwest Willie, how can we really bring clarity to this question?"
      Willie responded and said.
      "The best way to gain some sense and clarity about the name game is to unfold another mystery of our past. Africa was known and is still known as the land of the Blacks. This fact is well documented, thus, for all practical purposes people of African descent who were born in North America are Black Americans. (For the record there is a need to distinguish between Blacks in America and Blacks of Africa. If Blacks in America claim to be African Americans how would one distinguish between the African -Americans born in America and the African-Americans born in Africa?)
      But, as you know the racism of White America during the slave period (Also the racism of 1999) wanted to confuse the Blacks from Africa. White people wanted to cut off Blacks from their glorious and industrious Africa heritage. So they invented a new race of people and called them Negroes. ( The Confusion of the Negro) Thus, the resulting affects of White racism during the slave period that sought to rob Africans brought to America as slaves of their African origins have to be closely brought up for review. It is for sure that the efforts to dissociate the African from Africa with respect to his culture, language, religion etc. was one of the most dehumanizing aspects of slavery. But the reality is that certain aspects of assimilation would occur with the second generation slaves. This generation gradually grew to become a distinct racial group regardless of the premeditated intentions of Willie Lynch and the slave South and/or racism. The development of this group of people of African descent in North America would eventually note a distinct difference from their African brothers and sisters. For example Africans in the Carribean developed distinct differences from their African brethren in Africa. Thus they are Jamaican first as we are American first and Black second. Because to be African second would be mis-leading confusing and not accurate as to our origins as a people. "

      So, Willie you believe that the White man first started to name Black people? And the reason for the White man giving names to Africans brought to America was because he did not want the Black man to hold any linkage to his African past. But, could the White man really remove the Africans brought to America from their African past? Even though it has been argued that much of the culture of Africa has been lost, but the color is the most dominant characteristic and link to Africa. And of course it is still there.
      ( Cultural Nationalism I, Cultural Nationalism II )

      Willie responded.
      "Yes, that is true. During the slave period, slave, Negro, Black and Nigger were used to
      distinguish the slaves brought to America to work for White people for free.
      ( The Power and Wealth of America was built on the Backs of Black Slaves ) Also, the names Negra and Negress were used to distinguish the Blacks from Africa. Negra and Negress were old slave time names that have become out-dated, but Nigger is still used as a demeaning and derogatory term to distinguish Black people." ( For a further discussion on Nigger See: Relationship of Ignorance to Racism and Uncle Toms )

      "The next period that revealed the White man continuing the name game was the period of Jim Crow. This period and the previous period saw Blacks continuing to contribute to the name confusion. During slavery and during the reconstruction period Blacks didn't want to be called Black. White people had shrewdly tricked Black people to think that Black was negative and bad, so Blacks accepted the name Negro as respectable, and later during Jim Crow many Blacks came to prefer to be called Colored. In fact my cousin from south Georgia still wants to be a Negro and still calls Black people Colored and Negroes. Man, South Georgia Pete is crazy and behind the times and just country. ( For a discussion on why Blacks act like South Georgia Pete See: What is Political Socialization? )

      So, most Blacks came to accept the names Negro and Colored until the Black awareness movement in the 60s. For the record, of course, Blacks did not give themselves any of these names, they all came from the White man. But, you know Carl, this name game is a hard one to clear up, with the confusion and changes always taking place. So if you don't mind I need to consult with some more of my friends.
      Brother Abdul have we had any efforts by Blacks to keep us in focus as to who we are?"

      Brother Abdul, responded and said.
      "Yes, of course. Marcus Garvey and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad both paid no attention to the White man's name game. The leadership of these great Black men sought to instil pride in the Black man and woman by recognizing them as Black people. (For the record the White man did not officially call Blacks born in America Black. The Blacks of America gave themselves this name. Thus, the racial distinction of Black became a badge of pride. Previously during the history of Black American the word Black as a reference to race or ethnicity was looked upon as negative and dis-tasteful. With the coming of the Black Awareness and the lyrics of the legendary James (Soul Brother No. 1) Brown "Say It Loud I'm Black and I'm Proud", Black became beautiful and to be Black was an essential ingredient of Black pride.

      Garvey's movement died and was destroyed. The passing of the Honorable Elijah brought about a further development in Black Nationalism and Islam. The American Muslim Mission came on the scene as a more orthodox Islam group while the Nation of Islam continues the teachings of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad. These dominant Black Muslim groups in America continue to distinguish us properly as Black Americans. But over all, most Blacks considered themselves Negroes, Colored and Niggers until the 60s Black Awareness movement. During the height of the Black Awareness movement Black consciousness became a widely accepted attitude."

      But Brother Abdul "What did the radical Blacks say about the name game during the 60s?"
      " Well I have some ideas but Memphis Slim was in the Black Panther Party and he witnessed first hand the contributions of people like Malcolm X, Stokely Carmichael, Huey Newton and George Jackson.
      Well what about your impressions Slim?"
      "Well brothers, you know I have led a life of the streets. And I have kept in touch with my people. The rap in the streets during the 60s was "Black Is Beautiful." The so-called radical and militant Blacks promoted this term and it was widely used. In fact the dark-skinned sister became accepted as a beautiful Black Queen and for many surely the most delightful and beautiful woman on earth."

      Since we are talking about beautiful Black women, I saw Techwood Tina yesterday. Tina as usual didn't give a damn. But when I asked her when did Afro-Americans come on the scene she became excited. Tina said."
      "I wore an Afro in the 60s, it was big and pretty just like the one worn by Angela Davis. Eventually the militancy and Black awareness of the 60s produced a new name, Afro-American. Afro-American became widely accepted as the proper term to use to distinguish Black people in the 60s. But Afro was a hairdo in the 60s that came with the Black Awareness movement.

      Nonetheless, this self identity among Blacks was very important because this name came from Black people in an effort to maintain our true African identity. So throughout the 60s and 70s the name Afro-American and Black became the most widely accepted terms used to describe Black people. "

      I appreciate the comments of our sister Tina. Moving right along, by the 80s though someone in the Civil Rights movement came up with a new term, African-American. Well Mr. Southwest Willie what do you have to say about this latest name?
      "Carl, you ask some hard questions, I need to see the Westend Professor on this one. Professor, what is the deal, where did the latest name come from?'

      "Well, many scholars and intellectuals like myself argue that Jesse Jackson around 1988 changed our name to African-American. Why Jesse and mis-informed Civil rights activist saw fit to continue the name game, that was first started by White people is a mystery. Yes a mystery caught up in the unnecessary notion that we need a name that better identifies us with our African heritage. But this latest name game brings into focus another subject that is related to the name game.

      That subject is the distinction between African-American and the Black-American. The name game playing Blacks are now trying to call all of us Africans. If we are Africans, who are the African-Americans? The Black-Americans are Blacks born in North America who have African ancestors. He or she may also have ancestors from Europe and have links to the Native American. Therefore, African-Americans are people that have come to North America from Africa and have gained American citizenship.

      Carl this discussion also raises other critical concerns, concerns like the Black race in North America. Black people are a distinct group of people in the so-called Negroid racial group. As distinct as the French to the German in the Caucasoid racial group. Have White people been confused about their name? What's in a name?" (See: The Black Race In America )

      FREEDOMJOURNAL THOUGHT OF THE DAY 1-5-01

      Carl Patton writing for the FreedomJournal January 5, 2001 in the year of our Lord.

      "There are many abnormal actions in this decadent society and throughout the Black community. However all abnormal behavior that is self-imposed is an affront to God the Creator. God did not create Uncle Toms nor did God create money-hungry, insane, blood thirsty Abortion Doctors who murder Black Babies."

      It is for sure that many of our people are abnormal and feel that Acts of Treason are honorable and the way to success and getting paid. Meanwhile they apologize for Uncle Toms and argue that they do not exist. They also have some notion that Uncle Tom is a hero. Please read "The Origin and Reality of Uncle Tom," written by the FreedomJournal.
      "The Origin & Reality of Uncle Tom"

      For the record a critical aspect of the philosophy of the FreedomJournal is that White racists would not be able to continue many aspects of racism and discrimination without the Black Conspiracy. Thus Black Traitors like the Foolish, Stupid, Ignorant and Silly Uncle Tom families in Chattanooga, TN and throughout America and the Diaspora help keep Black people in economic bondage.
      "Introduction to Series"
      "Introduction to Human Rights Abuses Chattanooga, TN"

      THE CHOSEN CADRE OF BLACK LEADERS IS A PLANNED AND CALCULATED TACTIC OF THOSE WHO WISH TO COMMIT ACTS OF WICKEDNESS AGAINST GOD AND HIS PEOPLE. WE BEAR WITNESS THAT ALL WICKED, FOUL ACTS AGAINST HUMANITY ARE CRIMES AGAINST GOD. AGAIN GOD DID NOT CREATE HUMANKIND TO BE WICKED AND FILLED WITH HATE.

      Peace,
      Carl Patton, FreedomJournal
