    There is a great unity in this nation
    to enforce something Jwanzaa Kunfufu warned about

    "The Conspiracy to Destroy Black Boys" and about a decade after that was published, the oligarchal system is focuse on destroying
    Black Girls as well.

    The George Bush "Tincture" of Eduation system , No Child Left Behind
    according to the latest statitics,
    has left 80% of the nation's public schools behind,
    and we all know out of that 80, we know the condition of the schools , in the Black comunity,
    th few that have been left open , that is!

    The term it takes a village to raise a child,
    was a daily reality,
    at one time in our great African history

    How do we bring that back before the "hurricane" hits???????

    Because of its utopian goals, coupled with harsh sanctions, NCLB has turned out to be the worst federal education legislation ever passed. Recently, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan predicted that more than 80 percent of the nation’s public schools would be labeled “failing” this year by federal standards, including some excellent schools in which students (usually those with disabilities) were not on track to meet the target. By 2014, if the law is unchanged, very few public schools will not be labeled “failures.” No nation has ever achieved 100 percent proficiency for all its students, and no state in this nation is anywhere close to achieving it. No nation has ever passed a law that would result in stigmatizing almost every one of its schools. The Bush-era law is a public policy disaster of epic proportions, yet Congress has been unable to reach consensus about changing it.

    complacency is a function of depression which is brought on by the system of white supremacy

    Then we need a cure real fast, cause we darn sure were not that depressed or complacent when we walked off the plantations with nothing but the emotional and physical scars of the worst crime in human history, into a hostile world, with no money, no technology and no where to go

    It seems the world has been brainwashed and conditioned for too many generations. I'm not altogether sure if I would call it complacency so much as fear of death, combined with the notion that there is only one life to live.

    In black people it's a symptom of Mentacide.

    http://www.cultural-expressions.com/diaspora/wright.htm

    (44 pages)
    Published by Haki R. Madhubuti (Third World Press) 1984


    Haki Madhubuti describes esteemed ancestor Dr. Bobby Wright as one of the few Black people who dared to ask the penetrating questions and demand answers and corrective actions to the racial situation in the United States and the world." In these essays, psychologist Dr. Bobby Wright coins the term "mentacide" which he defines as the "deliberate and systematic destruction of a group’s minds with the ultimate objective being the extirpation of the group." "Mentacide," says Dr. Wright, is a worldwide phenomena being implemented against the entire Black race. "Therefore," he says, "Blacks in Africa will begin to manifest the behavior of Blacks in the United States. Dr. Wright "was a thorn in the brain of Black men and women posing as leaders." And his last words were a warning to his friends and associates, "Watch the leadership, especially those proclaiming their God-given answer to the problems of Black people." "Dr. Bobby E. Wright was a "Black" psychologist, so labeled not just because he was both Black and a psychologist, but because he used his education, training, intellectual knowledge and skills always in the best interest of Black people all over the world." Just as Brother Haki considered it an honor to publish Dr. Wright, it was an honor for me to read and review this thought provoking work.

    Dr. Wright poignantly begins the title essay, The Psychopathic Racial Personality, with the following narrative;

    "In a bullfight, after being brutalized while making innumerable charges at the movement of a cape, there comes a time when the bull finally turns and faces his adversary with the only movement being his heaving bloody sides. It is believed that for the first time he really sees the matador. This final confrontation is known as "the moment of truth." For the bull, this moment comes too late."

    According to Dr. Wright, the experience of Black people all over the world presents an analogous situation. For hundreds of years, our European (white) matadors have been holding up the capes of democracy, capitalism, Marxism, religion and education and for hundreds of years we have been charging at the movement of these "capes." Like the bull, we too are suffering from near fatal wounds and "indeed have arrived at our "moment of truth." Sisters and brothers, it is time for us to look at the matador and Dr. Wright tries to sharpen our vision.
