I just watched this show. The main diatribe was about George Jackson. Police officials explained how he hid a 38 handgun in his afro; but the show insisted on showing pictures of Nyati Bolt in place of George Jackson; because his afro was larger than George Jackson. They zoomed in on Nyati's picture to the point my wife said, "It looks like he's moving."
Show message: "All nigger's look the same; any picture with a larger afro will do."
Next showing: Discovery Channel 06/09

MATRIX: THE MODERN CONTINUED MENTAL AND SOCIAL SUPPRESSION OF AFRICAN AMERICANS UNDER NATIONAL INTEREST © 2006
by Franklin G. Jones
Todays 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 Americas 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 todays 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 Americas 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 Whites 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. Governments 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. Governments 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 Reilleys Racial Matters: The FBIs 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 ‚€œa lower order of intellect and skill.‚€Ě 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 historys crimes repeated against them.
Peace be upon you
