    Therefore it is imperative that we go back to those who have dedicated their lives to solutions to this issue since it has a psychological root;
    like Psychologist Amos Wilson;
    Black-On-Black Violence: The Psychodynamics of Black Self-Annihilation in Service of White Domination,
    Understanding Black Adolescent Male Violence: Its Remediation and Prevention (Awis Lecture Series),
    Awakening the Natural Genius of Black Children

    Since you posted the link to the video featuring comrade Kwame Ture, then you should know (not to be dogmatic) that the only solution is REVOLUTIONARY STRUGGLE and the overthrow of capitalism. Capitalism cannot be reformed. It must be destroyed. Reformist measures have not, and will not work. Black/African people are systematically marginalized within capitalism and race and class oppression and exploitation go hand in hand. One can not be defeated without the defeat of the other. Peace!

    Communtiy
    Reform
    Inner
    Party
    Service.

    The concept of "blood" from socialist oriented African Blood Brotherhood. So what happened? Blame it all on COINTELPRO? I think not. Problem was/is shift of internal efforts from revolution into REFORM movement due to bourgeois aspirations of Black "revolutionary" leaders who failed to commit what Huey P. Newton referred as "revolutionary (class) suicide.

    So the point is, we can NOT stop Black men from being incarcerated unless we destroy the institutionalized racist SYSTEM of capitalism which marginalizes Black men who are economically "superfluous appendages" of the system.

    Back to the "gangs". Even many gang intervention "specialists" do not posess the political education skills or knowledge required to effect revolutionary change because most do not even know the history of their own gangs. If history is a "passport to the future", one will have limited results if one does not know the historical context whoich made "intervention" a necessity to begin with. This leads one to focus on band-aid solutions while the body is hemorraging.

    What or who EXACTLY did I attack?

    As I stated, YOU posted the Kwame Ture video. Since I worked with brother Ture, I explained what he often would explain. That only revolutionary struggle would eliminate the problems folks are addressing here. So, as I figured, you accuse me of rhetoric and sloganeering.

    I stated before I have spent over the last 30 years working in community service. As an educator and working in non-profit sector. Since you appeared at this site after I went on hiatus I don't know you well enough to give more specific detail.

    I already stated the SOLUTION is revolutionary struggle, not reformism. You can consider this rhetoric but then you dont really KNOW Kwame Ture...or do you? And I mean do you REALLY know Kwame personally? I worked with him whan I was at UCLA (organizing speaking tours) where I was a campus coordinator for the AAPRP.

    What good are posting videos while at the same time rejecting the essence of the teaching? Seems rather self-serving to me in effort to get "hits". Peace!

    Who said i worshiped Kwame Toure'

    Is this a personal ish?

    I presented several solutions and you had taken the time to dig up more thank you, now since this is a serious issue, where are your solutions?

    And please no romanticized ideas just simple solutions that folks can achieve, other then rhetoric and slogans

    I started posting on this site in 2002 and have over 6,000 posts. Nothing personal, just stating my perspective. As far as presenting solutions, I work on solving problems daily through my actions as an educator and community organizer. I will continue to let my actions speak for themselves rather than pose hypothetical questions which lead to lip service and non-actualized ego gratification. Peace!

    no disrespect brother but I see nothing about this post that says folks are here to show and tell their life history,

    just asked a simple question about solutions,
    real actual solutions to a serious problem, now what exactly do you see wrong with

    Jawanzaa Kunjufu, or Amos Wilson or Dr. Degruy, or the Nguzo Saba?
