I had to stop listen to him speak. He sounds like he suffers from an extream inferiority complex. I disagree with most of his dialogue. He goes so far as to say the inferiority starts in the womb. That's a lie.
My mother had nine kids that she taught were the most handsome, beautiful, smartest than all others. We were never treated inferior. I have never felt inferior. I taught my son the same. He does not suffer from an inferiority complex.
This speaker, Dr. Amos, sounds like he suffers from a serious case of self hate and an inferiority complex in his brain, to say it starts in the womb.
Some Black folk just don't need a platform to spread their stinking thinking.
I do not think he suffers from an inferiority complex, rather that he is trying to explain why it is necessary for white supremacy to create black inferiority complex in black culture and society.
I think you feel like he attacked you and so you had lashed out in rage.....ask yourself why you are so offended?
Did Dr Amos as the saying goes step on your toes or as Bob Marley sang " who the cap fit let them wear it"
He speaks and looks like he has an inferiority complex. That's Just me looking at the video.
So now we gone give white folk credit and the power to create an inferity complex. I believe inferiority complex is a weakness. A weakness that just should be addressed by those who love you, such as a parent.
I'm not offended personally. I'm just tired of talking heads saying blacks suffer from self hate, and now MY PEOPLE suffer from an inferioty complex. I disagree. He didn't step On my toes. HE STEPPED ON THE TOES OF MY PROPLE. I'm tired of all these studies to discover another negative about Blacks.
I'm not mad, I'm just tired, of being sick and tired.
Maybe you are Projecting.
Yes his gravelly voice can be annoying
One does not change reality by denying its existence.
Changes comes through exploration/investigation and experimentation.
Amos Wilson is a Psychologist and Social scientist so he does it on a social and personal level
I think he is saying that a vast Majority of ( especially diasporic) Blacks suffer from inferiority complex.
Inferiority complex and self hate are closely related but not exactly the same
Sometimes the truth hurt......to properly dress a wound often times one needs to clean and excise away the dead matter and that can be painful.
I do agree that there maybe too much attention paid to us (blacks) and our negative issues and not enough to them and their issues or even to our positive qualities for that matter.
The thing is when you in the muck you just got to deal with it.....and Western Psychology for the most part deals with the ills of people and society.
I'm not relating at all to being or feeling inferior to another race. Wouldn't having an inferiority complex to whites be the same as self hate.
Inferior: lower in place or position; closer to the bottom
Self Hate: When someone hates themself or a group of people to which they belong.
A person can have an inferiority complex because they have not been taught their value. I don't relate feeling inferior as a race related trait. Young girls can feel inferior because her hair is shorter and more kinky than her friends, if she has not been told/taught she is beautiful. Young boys can feel inferior because they are shorter and not as muscular as other boys their age.
Maybe I'll listen to the entire video tomorrow.
I appears, upon reading the above, that you are not abreast of the context with which dr. wilson is saying what he said.
Arguably, the most flawed approach to examining and issue that impacts a collective is using ones personal experience like
a rubric as a means to measure and or dismiss wholesale a problem/phenomena that impacts a group.
And the part where he mentions the "womb", I think you missed the mark, or you are simply
cherry-picking, for you seem to have neglected or paid no attention to what he said, leading
up to such claim (context) in order to understand where he is/were going with it.
How do you explain how 10% of the worlds population controling over 90% of the the worlds wealth and
by far and away dictate geo-political and economic operations?
This is a very simplistic look at the complexities of life itself with regard to black folk.
When if the parent(s) suffer from said inferiority complex, then what? Wilson, inquired
about the reasoning behind why folks have kids in the first place and how that 'reason'
will influence their development.
Again the above reads like you really do not understand what he is talking about. Mainly
because you fail to get the context with which he is making his claims.
Example: by the commonly accepted standards of beauty and or attractiveness my brother is my superior and I his inferior.....that does not mean I hate myself
I listened to the entire video. I'm pleased to report I was raised in an Afrocentric family, view life from an Afrocentic POV, only keep company with people an Afrocentri mindset. That's all I know.
When I come in contact with unconscious Blacks, that have no interest in Black History, who are wrapped up in white culture, and do exhibit an inferiority complex compared to whites, I try to reason with them. I'm being very serious here.
It's obvious when you're talking to a Black person about Black history or even the Black community, and they give you this blank stare, like a deer caught in the headlights. Clueless. This type may suffer from the dreaded inferiority complex. It's very sad. Even as I type this I'm thinking of persons who live their lives in accordance to white social standards. Who do suffer from an inferiority complex and self hate. They just don't know.
I think he's saying that it's important for white rule to keep people of color feeling inferior, in order to maintain a position of superiority.
