    Overcoming Self-Hate Part II

    According to the author of The Developmental Psychology of The Black Child, Amos N. Wilson, this double consciousness affects all Africans "regardless of income" and the black middle class "is the most schizoid of all'

    "The black middles class, which now includes almost half of black families in America, is caught on the horns of a serious dilemma. In its effort to succeed according to white standards it has become increasingly alienated from its black roots and yet its rejection and non-acceptance by the white middle class whose acceptance it perceives as the necessary factor needed for authenticating its own existence, leaves it in a state of psychological limbo (this perception is also shared by the rest of black classes ... less consciously than is the case of the black middle class) p.54-55
    Therefore, it is quite safe and logical to conclude that money and status are not antidotes to self-hate, nor are they byproducts of self-love.

    What can be universally understood about self-hate is that it stems from and is the product of unworthiness. A common misconception about self-hate is that self-love is the process by which one is healed, when in reality, self-love becomes the end product of one having healed their sense of unworthiness and self-hate.

    No, I don't believe we've become a race of haters.

    True, we exhibit some of the behaviors that you have listed, but they are not exclusive to Black people. And like everyone else, Black people are a product of our environment.

    I wouldn't describe us as "haters", though. I believe Blacks are suffering from stress and trauma brought on by our constant exposure to racists and racism. It's not even post-traumatic stress because what we experience as a people stems from our past and continues to our present day.

    The reality of our existence causes odd behavior at times and our progress may be slow to rise again to our level of greatness but thankfully many of us keep trying. If enough of us figure out the strategy to destroy the bonds that keep us down, there may be hope for us all.

    Just how relevant is a movie about black preps at a college to a bunch of today's black high school dropouts?

    That is a good question brother Chuck and I am glad you raised that! As you know that scene was about an incident of a man pimping his girlfriend to his superior. Something Black men have said goes on in ...certain lodges, and why they,..have uhm, walked out the square, and goes on in every gang of teen age High School age Black youth in the nation as well as the Caribbean, Europe and Africa since that movie was made 30 years ago!
