    In thread about an African escaping from African slavery in the 21rst century, he said 'Education gave me my freedom.'


    Is our system different? Set up different? Does Education equal freedom?
    Freedom of what? What type? What kind?

    “If you can control a man’s thinking, you don’t have to worry about his actions. If you can determine what a man thinks you do not have worry about what he will do. If you can make a man believe that he is inferior, you don’t have to compel him to seek an inferior status, he will do so without being told and if you can make a man believe that he is justly an outcast, you don’t have to order him to the back door, he will go to the back door on his own and if there is no back door, the very nature of the man will demand that you build one.”

    education does just that, educate!

    the desire for liberation comes from the heart.

    There was no more racist education then the ones the children had in Harlem during the time of Garvey yet they used it as a tool for liberation.

    In Africa today there are only a few of the 52 nations that have free education for the children, so in a way,

    for 21 century opression degredation and slavery to exist in a computer age,

    illiteracy and ignorance must be maintianed as the paradigm!

    Chuck:

    Many researchers and scholars we give props to these days were and are self educated...

    Sometimes folk just have to make an effort, i. e., regardless of inept principals/bad schools/etc.

    Nothing new or news about that either!

    "Train him up in the way he should go."

    "You're educated? Oh then the white man really has you!"


    I do not understand your comment.

    Depends on what (or whose) education you're getting.
    Also depends on your definition of freedom.

    well...medusanegrita,

    Once again my sister friend, I see we are on the same page(ancestor Carter G. Woodson), click read and enjoy, and perhaps forward progress can take place, in terms of action rather than just dialogue. What say you medusanegrita?

    If some reuse terms we used to refer to ourselves?

    Other folks be from different places/different spaces/etc.:

    So I can easily guess beforehand, that you and I know and understand the limitations of mere book learning...

    What does matter is the effort, whether that person got it right or wrong, whereas it's a simple matter to set the record straight, y'know?

    Do remember that Monk and Sun Ra etc. were and are our peeps...

    I. e., some things are our--not a part of their--life experiences, etc.

    So do keep this in mind too:

    Yes, some of our relations, whose ancestors wound up elsewhere in the Americas, remind us of where we be from, but we remind them where we be nowadays...

    And it's all real...

    Feel me:

    Did that too?
