How To Rehabilitate Our Community.

(ThyBlackMan.com) A lot of the time, I spend days thinking of ways to better the health and wealth of the black community, because nothing means more to me than to uplift and heal our community, we are in desperate need of change. I know many of us have heard that before, that we need a change but, that change needs to come from the black community; no one else but, us will be able to rehabilitate our living situations, the amount of protection we need, and most importantly, education. One tremendous way that would rehabilitate our community is taking our children out of public school and educating our own kids, possibly with our own educational system. But, before I get ahead of myself, we cannot accomplish that until we have a stance and power in politics and economics. And, I cannot stress this enough, we need to take control over our livelihoods and it is up to us to dictate and make decisions in our community that play in our favor. Changes that we all feel is right for the youth, health, and wealth of our community.

I necessarily do not think that we need to have a stance in politics to create some sort of educational system for our youth. I do believe that we need a money cycle in order to keep it in business. But, the disadvantage in lacking political power, is that we would not have the chance to expand the opportunity to most of our youth, especially, city to city, and if we are successful, than state to state. That would most likely only happen if we can gain some sort of political power. With that said, if you are wondering how we could achieve those things, it’s all in the will of taking action and accepting responsibility.

To elaborate, let’s start with the economics of our community. One thing that I love about our community is that we shout the importance and needs of supporting black businesses. But, lack the success in supporting the finance in black businesses, and by that I mean, we do not only support black businesses, which leads most business owners to partner with or sell their endorsements to a third party, just so their business will not die out. If the black community could find some type of way to invest in one another than we will start to gain some kind of control over our livelihoods. Not to rush to the conclusion, in order for this to be in motion, black businesses must support other black businesses.

Furthermore, we must keep the money cycling in our community. I know, easier said than done but, we have done it before, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. First took off in the early 1900’s, and then bombed on the year 1921, by the U.S. government, it was also led by the Ku Klux Klan. Let that not fear you, if we can fight our way into politics, we can have our own military, for protection, not oil. In addition, if we were to create a money cycle, we then can start to invest in our communities by buying property, and what we do with that property is up to us. We could build educational centers for our youth and teach them the important things an African should know.

For example, True African History, in our perspective and through the stories of our ancestors. Teach them the truth about Christianity, untold events about slavery, the invasion and colonization of Africa. We could theorize ideas on how to take the land of Africa back, and most importantly, we could teach them about them true selves. We would be able to develop our children to later in life to be politicians, business owners, educators, artists, whom all represent the black community the way we should be represented. The advantages in that will be, now we have more black employees for our black businesses, and on top of that, we would have politicians whom will fight and represent for the protection and rights to keep our community striving. And, when the U.S. Army comes knocking at our door, we will not fear their guns no longer but, embrace the act of taking the necessary precautions in order to keep us safe and strong.

Let me make one thing clear, our community, selfishly throws money right back into the hands that gave it to them, which would be great, if that hand, was a black one. Instead of investing in our community, a lot of us are too worried about showing out and fronting, when systematically we are all in the same predicament. When we as a community stop competing with each other, than most likely the rehabilitation of our community, will take off.

    I identify as black because Europeans stripped me of my culture, got rid of my real last name and etc. I’m not black because that’s a lie someone told me, I am black because that’s what I identify as. White people ain’t white, they’re more red or pink but you don’t see them calling themselves pink. I am African, not American. I am Black and proud, you can call that a lie but there is so much more to be worked up about other than whose black and whose brown. Don’t waste such energy on things.

    Yo Anthony, you sound mad first of all and second, I don’t identify as African American, just African or just black. If you don’t like that and disagree, write an article about it. Nobody is playing into the hands of oppressors if any “African American” calls themselves black. Brown is the color of shit, brown is the color of walls, brown is someones hair color, brown is an eye color. If you can claim to be brown, I can claim to be black. That’s really all you got out of this article? Smh.

    AFRICAN AMERICANS ARE NOT BLACK. Black is the color of your car tires, not your skin author. Being called “black” is a lie and it should be offensive. Haitians, Jamaicans and even Africans do not accept being called “black”, Why do you think that is? They are identified by tribes, klans, geographic areas and their respective countries. By using the very term black to describe us, we are doing the following:
    1. Using a term white oppressors and slave masters gave us.
    2. Letting someone else define us other than our own people.
    3. Calling ourselves something we are not.
    4. Buying into thee lie and the negative denotation. Check the dictionary.
    5. Being set apart in a way that no other ethnic group allows. Native Americans are not called Red Man. Asians are not called Yellow Man. Hispanics are not called Brown Man. They do not and will not accept being defined by color and by some other race or ethnic group at that.
    6. Ignoring our actual color (brown) which means brainwashing has worked. Any time someone can get an entire race, ethnic group or culture to ignore what they are and call themselves what they factually are not, THEY HAVE BEEN INDOCTRINATED, ASSIMILATED AND BRAINWASHED.
    7. Playing right into the oppressor’s profiles and stereotypes. Did you know studies show there is a different perception of black people than there is of African Americans? Words create perceptions and perceptions create actions towards us.
    WAKE UP. You know your colors. And even though others around the world equated our ancestors with the color of the soil in Africa or the meaning of negro/negroid, that does not change the fact that WE ARE BROWN – NOT BLACK.
    If you look in the dictionary or send an email to brainstormonline@yahoo.com, I will send you the research. Facts are facts and YOU ARE BROWN, NOT BLACK. When you receive the revelation of wy they keep calling African Americans “black” and Caucasian people “white”, you may just wake up!
    STOP LETTING OTHER GROUPS DEFINE YOU WITH AN OBVIOUS LIE that we have heard and accepted so much that we believe it’s true and forget our colors. The de-programming has to take root or African Americans will forever be defined, limited and oppressed by those who get us to accept a lie.
