In the Obama era, what’s the rationale for separating black history from American history?
This is no more different than “why do we need black history anyway, we don’t have white history month!” or “How come we don’t get white history month” When Professor Carter G. Woodson brought forth the idea of a Negro history week in February 1926, it was to highlight the social contributions of African people in American Inc. “The race will free itself from exploiters just as soon as it decides to do so.
No one else can accomplish this task for the race. It must plan and do for itself.” According to the MSM website that “America’s black citizens were on the outside looking in, spectators to the great American drama, subjected to a repression of aspiration and identity so severe that it amounted to domestic apartheid (apart-hate).”
It has become accepted now by delusional knee-grows and hypocritically voiced by Caucasians that when Barack Obama took the oath of office to become the 44th figure head of the Incorporated United States on Jan. 20, things were going to change for the better for relationship between our status in this corporate entity.
Since 1976, February has been officially designated as “Black History Month”, yet its as if the author of the MSM piece had been drinking moonshine or smoking some serious crack when he supposed that “the inauguration of the nation’s first black president underscored just how much the climate that produced Woodson’s noble idea had changed.
Some say the need for Black History Month has ended altogether.” It is true what he said that “Black History Month” has become more or less a ritual reflex in American life, with many observances reduced to rote and repetitious rituals. Many of those observances seem to be as much about marketing products as they are about the collective national memory.
Part of the reason why this 28-29 day period was given to and accepted by us to celebrate the contribution of people from the oldest culture in the world is because (a) The White Supremacists will allow nothing more substantive as teaching and learning tool to further stir up the frustrated masses. (b) This is another product we have that they can pimp, steal or co-opt to make their own or get commerce from. (c) We have still not learnt from our 500 plus years of oppression and subjugation in the NAU or any true over standing of our story to WANT to practice SANKOFA and the seven principles installed in the Kwanzaa ( another celebration we have turned into a farce) such as:
i Unity -To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation and race. ii Self Determination – To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves and speak for ourselves.
iii Collective Work & Responsibility – To build and maintain our community together and to make our Brother’s and sister’s problems, our problems and to solve them together.
iv Cooperative Economics– To build and maintain our own stores, shops and other businesses and to profit from them.
v Purpose – To make as our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.
vi Creativity – To do always as much as we can, in the way that we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful than when we inherited it. vii Faith – To believe with all our hearts in our parents, our teachers, our leaders, our people and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.
And every year-the white supremacist media, their corporate lackeys in conjunction with their knee-grow gate keepers put out the same tried and true ads of famous known entities such as: Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, Buffalo soldiers, the Civil Rights movement and Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. etc. Of course the high point has to be MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech. A speech used to justify Obama’s ascendency and the MSM question, which of course will be hotly debated by people with little or no reason to be allowed next to sharp objects.
MSM asked “When black American history intertwines so completely with American history in general, what’s the rationale for separating them?” Intertwine yes, however the result of this mingling of dirt and water creates a muddy state of confusion and knee-grow capitulating as noted in this article.
Even riding Miss Daisy’s Chauffer, Morgan “chicken bone” Freeman jumped on the n***er band wagon by asking the question, “You’re going to relegate my history to a month. I don’t want a Black History Month. … Black history is American history.“
Idiotic comments like that and others obfuscate the fact that, we shouldn’t even be justifying our cultural and our storical celebration and legacies to ass holes who take issues with our celebrations, even while they force feed us their multitude of events, celebration and his-storical lies as proof of their place in the universe.
The sad truth is that the Caucasian people can’t do fuck all if we don’t want them to. The reality is that through the social control of White Supremacy, as Carter G Woodson eloquently put it in The Mis-Education of the Negro:
“When you control a man’s thinking you do not have to worry about his actions. You do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder. He will find his ‘proper place’ and will stay in it. You do not need to send him to the back door. He will go without being told. In fact, if there is no back door, he will cut one for his special benefit. His education makes it necessary.”
