    THE BLACK MATRIX: The Modern Mental and Social Suppression of African American Under National Interest
    © 2006 by Franklin G. Jones
    www.divineblacktrut h.org

    There is neither a struggle, nor fight more pressing for we African Americans than this one, for this is how we are being systematically exploited, suppressed, confused and turned against each other.For almost half a century and as a means of ensuring that White dominance is maintained, the United States government has secretly implemented its largest ever covert operation against its Black population through a campaign of psychological warfare that uses mis-education, false statistics, and negative propaganda spread by media reports. The unrelenting daily assault on the Black psyche corrupts African Americans’ sense of reason and unity thus creating the culture of failure and disparity that now afflicts modern Black America.

    Because this book exposes the hidden, conspiratorial, and profound dimensions of racism that secretly exist at governmental levels in the United States , these are very dangerous waters that I am attempting to navigate. For if this book were to become a bestseller among African Americans, the U.S. Government would most certainly dispute it and initiate a national campaign of spin control and coverage through the national media and the internet with experts lined up to dismiss its premises as a means for protecting its national interest.

    Why? Because this book offers the truth for those who will listen for it; and the truth is that we, African Americans, can no longer survive as a race hanging on to lies. The reality of truth must prevail if we are to be a part of the future. The many problems now facing Black America will not be corrected by implementing outdated strategies of foot marches, speeches, the commemoration of fallen Black martyrs, nor from the preaching of scriptures from any of our religious texts—Christian or Moslem— but instead by initiating the next and more profound stage of the battle for civil rights, thus breaking into newer, previously unexplored territories, thus exposing the fiercest and most lethal system of institutionalized racism now facing Black America.

    Today, the fiercest and most lethal system of racism adversely affecting Black America is neither police brutality, racial profiling, nor is it the Ku Klux Klan. But it is, instead, a modern massive system of covert White racism that is so subtle, pervasive, organized, complete, and proficient that it may be the single most aggravating factor behind the persistent national disparities and culture of failure now afflicting Black America —and yet most African Americans are totally unaware of its existence.

    Since the beginning of recorded history, ruling governmental bodies of nearly every nation have involved themselves in implementing methods to maintain and defend their positions of established power against its minority group. The American Government is in no way an exception to this rule. For it has implemented methods designed to ensure that White dominance is maintained since the time Black people first arrived in America as slaves. During slavery, Blacks were not allowed to be educated, speak among themselves in their native language, or to congregate in large groups [except during their religious services which their master often over saw]. Even after the abolishment of slavery, methods were again implemented to ensure that White dominance was maintained in the form of Jim Crow inequalities that included many unethical methods that denied Blacks the right to vote and that fostered and sanctioned thousands of brutal lynchings of African Americans. Since the methods of the past are no longer morally acceptable, it became necessary for America ’s White governmental elites secretly to create and apply a system more subtle, sophisticated, and socially acceptable in its application and appearance for ensuring that White dominance is maintained. Unlike the brutal system of racism used in the past that caused African Americans to rally together and unify themselves against, this modern system of racism is not easily comprehended by Blacks. It is a method so opaque that many of its Black victims remain largely unaware of it themselves. And while most African Americans may instinctively feel that something is wrong, they cannot, however, express their suspicions and conceptualize them sufficiently so that they and others can comprehend and act to defend themselves against it. It is, in fact, so sophisticated that even very bright African American individuals have little, if any, hope of extricating themselves from its brutal effects. In fact, most Blacks cannot believe that they are being attacked or subdued because it wears the appearance [if any] of being totally self-inflicted by African Americans themselves. Most African Americans have never heard of this method of asserting White racism, therefore many will find it too shocking and stunning to contemplate—neverthe less, it is directly intertwined with the many problems adversely affecting Black America today. This literary work will embark upon a difficult journey that exposes the conspiratorial dimension of racism that secretly exists at governmental levels in the United States . It is a journey that exposes the fundamental core character of the true existing relationship shared between the United States Government and its Black population in a new and troubling light. This journey will be quite difficult and very uncomfortable for many because it requires that African Americans reexamine some of their most basic beliefs and prior assumptions. Moreover, it requires that African Americans overcome a psychologically ingrained “White is right” preferentiality that has been indoctrinated unrelentingly upon the Black psyche and that is rarely moved. Nevertheless, the rewards will be a change from feelings of hopelessness and despair to an awareness of the most urgent issue of our time.

    Today, despite the many equalities gained and opportunities that are now available, America remains largely a nation divided along Black and White racial lines, separate and unequal – one thriving and intact and the other brutally disenfranchised, struggling, and, far too often, Black. In fact, America ’s Black population is far worse off in many ways than ever before. As seen, for example, in the fact that the unprecedented degree of racial pride and unity that was once so movingly demonstrated among African Americans during the 1960's has now today become replaced by widespread and profound division and internalized racism among the race. And although there exist today many wealthy and successful African Americans [greatly due to highly paid athletes and entertainers that benefit the White elites more than they do their own communities] , multigenerational poverty in America still remains largely Black and the masses of African Americans still remain the most devalued by society and the most deliberately exploited and suppressed class in America .

    Today, African Americans are faced with disparities far worse than any generation before now. For never before has the Black suicidal rate ever been higher than it is now. The suicide rate among African American males between the ages of 15 and 19 has risen an astronomical 145% percent. That is eight times higher than the rate of their White counterparts, and it is the highest it's ever been since they have been keeping figures on Blacks. Statistically, Black America appears to be now literally committing cultural self- genocide. The problem is so alarming that the former Surgeon General, David Satcher, describes it as "a crisis of epidemic proportions.”

    Moreover, African Americans appear now more divided than at any other time before in American history. The Black-on-Black homicide rate is higher now than ever before. One study reveals that more Blacks have been killed by Blacks in the last twenty five years than the entire number of Americans solders killed during the Vietnam War. This division is also evident in the collapse of the Black nuclear family. It is estimated that, forty years ago, less than thirty-percent of African Americans homes were headed by a single parent. Today, that number has tragically risen above eighty percent—often creating many emotionally wounded Black children living with single parents.

    Moreover, the psyches of many African Americans youth appear to be now more fragile then their parents before them. For never before have so many Black male youth so openly admired criminal behavior such as thuggery and pimping; and never before have more of our young Black girls so routinely denigrated their gender; nor has the African-American high school drop out rate been higher then it now is; it has now climbed above fifty-one percent.

    Additionally, internalized racism appears to have a greater hold upon the Black psyche now than at any other time before in history for never before have African Americans more favorably referred to themselves as “******s” than they do now; never more than now, upon attaining wealth and success, have a greater number of Blacks married White spouses --deliberately rejecting all potential Black spouses-- preferring to marry White spouses only. And never more than now have even the poorest of Blacks spent a higher percentage of their earnings each year on Europeanizing cosmetic surgeries, bleaching skin creams, chemical hair softeners, and hair weaves. Internalized racism among African Americans is now worse than at any other time before in history.

    What is most particularly unsettling about this internalized racism among African Americans today is, given White America’s brutal history of mistreating Black people, how it is that so many African Americans now suffer from such a massive attack of national amnesia-therefore failing to remember this historical record and have, instead, developed such a profound admiration for Whiteness and contempt for their own Blackness? Also, equally troubling here is, given White America’s historical brutal record of mistreating not only African Americans but also Asian Americans and Native Americans, how is it that they (Whites) are perceived today as being the racial group of the highest moral values and ethics, contrary to the historical record of brutality?

    Given that by all apparent measures racism in the United States has significantly declined, why then is today’s generation of African Americans now plagued with disparities far worse than any generation before now? Clearly, there is something terribly wrong here.

    THE WHITE RESPONSE
    While ignoring all facts that conflict with their racist ideas and accepting no ownership or blame for the persistent economic, social, and other disparities among its Black population that still exist in the face of opportunities that are now available, America’s White social critics have most often responded with a self congratulatory tone that states that, with racism no longer a significant problem in America, clearly the problem stems from an innate racial difference of intelligence or negative pathologies embedded within the Black culture itself. But are these racist premises correct -- that the problem actually stems from something about Black people themselves? Although tragically many Blacks themselves have come to accept them, the emerging evidence does not support the White racist view that the persistent disparities among African American are the result of any purportedly unequal, innate human capacities of the Black race. Such assertions are racist and totally inaccurate because the problem is a contemporary one that appeared only after integration and the abolishment of Jim Crow legalized racism and is not consistent with the past history of African Americans.

    THIS PROBLEM IS A MODERN PHENOMENON

    The White premise that there exists an innate proclivity for division and discursiveness among African Americans is totally inaccurate because this problem is a modern phenomenon that is not consistent with the history of African Americans. While perhaps difficult to believe today, Black unity [Umoja] was, historically, the cornerstone of the African American community and was a crucial factor in the survival of African Americans for more than four-hundred years of White racial oppression. It is credited for the success of the Underground Railroad system that secretly led to the escape of hundreds of African slaves to the north.

    Black unity and cohesion also attributed to the survival of millions of African Americans not only during slavery, but also during the aftermath of brutal Jim Crow era lynchings and through the financially crippling years of the United States great depression era. Moreover, Black unity was the most significant factor in the success of the 1960's civil right movement; for the immense degree of unity among African Americans then was made evident by its massive organization and mobilizations of mass bus boycotts, marches, freedom riders, and sit ins that were nonviolently conducted through the unified protest of civil disobedience. It was these methods of civil disobedience that gave the world the many images of African Americans being violently brutalized by White attackers while not responding to the immense violence with violence themselves; therefore touching the heart and conscious of many and gaining both national and global support that eventually led to America abandoning its usage of open, blatant and legalized forms of Jim Crow racism. The demonstrated degree of unity and structure among African Americans displayed then was extraordinary and arguably remains still unrivaled by any other group in the history of America .

    And in regards to the prevalence of Black behavior of self hatred commonly displayed today, clearly this is a modern problem for the display of Black ethnic pride was much more prevalent in the 1960's. For then the favorable fashion was the dashiki and the preferred hair style was the Afro and corn rows; and the popular themes then were "Black is Beautiful” and being "Black and Proud.” Clearly, these noted facts when considered together, the profound loss of racial pride and the self hatred displayed today among many African Americans, is a modern phenomenon.

    What is more, the assertion that the academic failures and profound loss of scholastic motivation among African American students stem from an innate racial difference of intelligence is also totally inaccurate. This problem is also a modern one that happened after integration. For prior to the 1954 Supreme Court decision in Brown V. Board of Education of Topeka and despite being wrought by Jim Crow racial oppression, inequalities, indignities, and having to attend poorly funded schools, the Black illiteracy that was 30% in 1919 had dropped to less then 7% by 1955.

    It had not only almost disappeared in the South, but in some areas it was less than White illiteracy as in then New York . In 1950, Black colleges had a total of 71,000 students, and 553 African Americans had a Doctorate Degree. The intellectual growth of African Americans was extraordinary. African American contributions to advancement in the field of science, agriculture, medical and domestic inventions during and following reconstruction were remarkably astounding. This was made most evident by the extremely high number of patent applications submitted by African Americans inventors to the U.S. Patent office --which is a miraculous feat especially under such oppressive conditions and coming so shortly after slavery. The profound loss of educational motivation and aspiration among so many African American students today is also a modern phenomenon that is inconsistent with the past history of African Americans. So what then has happened to the unrivaled racial pride, unity and cohesion, and ambitious perseverance that were once so unprecedented and so movingly demonstrated among African?

    Many African American psychologists have formed the consensus view that the problem stems from historical racial brutality and past prejudices that were indoctrinated upon the minds of our slave ancestors that is being subconsciously regenerated down generational lines by cultural pathologies of self contempt embedded within the Black psyche. (Akbar, Hilliard, Nobles,etc.. ) A brutal slave indoctrination process commonly referred to as the Willie Lynch method of slave indoctrination is typical in describing the process of indoctrination. However, while there clearly are many behaviors that exist now among African Americans today that can be directly traced back to slavery, these noted problems are now worse today than forty years ago. Therefore, this historical mortification/ indoctrination process upon our slave ancestors cannot be fully blamed for the problem. There has to be another explanation of why the problem is now worse than ever before. For the problem has become more prevalent within the last half century.

    What then has happened to the once unprecedented Black unity and cohesion, educational aspiration and racial pride that was once so prevalent among many African Americans? Do we continue to accept the easy and convenient answer that Black unity, cohesion, and educational aspiration merely disintegrated when integration and other opportunities became available?

    In his last public and arguably most famous speech entitled “The Mountain Top” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., said [paraphrasing] that although he himself may not make it to the promise land [of equality for all Americans] that we as a nation nevertheless will get to the promise land. Many Americans today believe that Dr. King’s dream has been fully realized in America ; therefore Black failure to achieve now is totally the fault of Blacks alone. But has Dr. King’s dream been fully realized in America , or are we all the victims of an elaborate illusion that equality now exists for all Americans? The illusion of opportunity and change has been so firmly established upon the national consciousness that to suggest that the noted problems among America ’s Black communities today stem from White racism has become almost laughable.

    Today, it is inevitable that if anyone were to now blame the many disparities among African Americans on White racism that they would be immediately accused of playing the inevitable race card and of being professional peddlers of victim-hood that somehow enjoy the moral advantage that their victim-hood gives them to overstate their case, to absolve themselves from all responsibility. Certainly, there are those Blacks that have wrongly peddled victim-hood and blame of Whites, however, today this scenario of the Black victim peddler is deliberately over stated and perpetuated within the American society, thus creating immense disdain for these Black accusers, even from fellow Blacks themselves. This is being deliberately done to prevent us from realizing that there actually does exist a modern deliberate system of racism implemented by America ’s White governmental elites with the underlying objective of maintaining White dominance.

    Given America 's White dominance, it should come as no surprise that the prevailing sentiment in the U.S. has now become that race is no longer a significant factor in the American society and that therefore racism can no longer be blamed for the despairing state of Black America. However, to find the true answers to the persistent despairing problems among the African-American communities one must not be deterred, but instead be willing to persevere beyond White indifference, ridicule, mockery, disapproval, and/or accusations of peddling victim-hood for they are now deliberately employed as tools of deterrence to keep Black America from finding the truth.

    The intent of this text is to demonstrate, unequivocally, that the United States government’s practices of economically exploiting and suppressing its Black population was actually never truly abandoned, but instead reincarnated into a far more sophisticated method. Moreover, that the source of the intensification of internalized racism, loss of motivation, school failure, profound division, and present confused outlook now so prevalent among so many African Americans today are in fact directly attributed to this modern deliberate system of covert White racism.

    Although today most African Americans do not experience racism the way their parents experienced it, they do, however, still experience White racism. White racism in the U.S. is still a current and devastating problem that now prevails with sophistication and is employed more covertly and more proficiently than ever before. The decline of the blatant, overt racism used in the United States to suppress African Americans up until the 1960's coincided with the implementation of a better disguised, more intensified, sophisticated, and more covert method of White racism more fitting for the times. The reincarnation of methods of suppressing sub-groups is not at all uncommon. In examining the records of history, we often find that, among those mighty empires which were brutal, greedy, and racist, those behaviors did not decay quickly even after the fall of empire. These patterns of racism where often reincarnated into forms more acceptable to the changing times.

    This practice of reinventing newer forms of institutionalized racism was already seen in the United States when, after the abolishment of slavery, the evil of racism was reincarnated into Jim Crow inequalities that where maintained by regional authorities and condoned by the U.S. Government. This atrocious American pattern of reincarnating its methods, of exploiting and suppressing its Black population to maintain its White dominance secretly, continues in the 21 century. Moreover, the modern method used in today’s world is so complete and proficient that it is intricately intertwined with the many despairing conditions now plaguing many of America’s Black communities, including delinquency, school failure, crime, profound self hatred and division, and also the national collapse of the Black nuclear family.

    White America's methods of institutionalized racism were secretly modified into a more contemporary and stealthy design that provides a more socially acceptable means to control the growth and advancement of its African American population. Unlike the blatant brutal method of racism used in the past in the United States , today’s methods are very sophisticated and unlike anything ever before faced by African Americans. Its methods are so well fortified and so complete until Blacks themselves are labeled “racist” by other Blacks for merely calling attention to it. Furthermore, it is so enthralling and sophisticated that it misleads Blacks to believe that they are, themselves, their own worst enemies, therefore engendering an internalized aberration of self contempt that pulverizes Black unity and halts Black upward mobility. It is also so fundamentally detrimental to the Black human condition and psyche that it may even affect the extent to which many African Americans realize their full human potential.

    Moreover, this system of racism is so well fortified and so complete that many African Americans will even disregard this disclosure of its existence as being merely nonsense and preposterously inconceivable. In fact, this method of racism is so proficient at damaging the Black self perception that tragically it has become easier for many Blacks to accept the derogatory premise that the noted problems stem from innate inadequacies within themselves rather than that of being the case of a modernized method of institutionalized racism being implemented at governmental levels.

    Many African Americans, in defending the U.S. Government, will adamantly present the question of why would the U.S. government find it a necessity to implement such a racist scheme? This is because the image that has been firmly established upon the consciousness of Black America, in regards to the U.S. Government, are those of the U.S. government sending troops to Little Rock, Arkansas to safely escort Black students to attend schools or that of the Northern Union soldiers fighting and dying against the Confederate army to free the slaves, and of the many social programs that the federal Government has implemented towards the benefit of African Americans. However, while these undertakings by the U.S. government collectively deserve our appreciation and respect, they do not accurately provide the full picture revealing the true or entire relationship shared between the U.S. Government and its Black population. These favorable stories and events reflect only what the U.S. Government wants its African Americans population to remember and are not historically accurate at reflecting or determining the true past relationship or the underlying present existing relationship between African Americans and the U.S. Government.

    From slavery to the present, African Americans have undeniably borne an unprecedented amount of suffering and mistreatment by the U.S. government because of their race. However, so many have forgotten or repressed so much of these maltreatments and have, instead, come to accept the favorable-but- false perpetuated White persona that represents everything that White people never were -- and still are not -- in place of the truth, thus engendering a sort of psychologically induced coma concerning their own Black holocaust. Because most African Americans lack access to an educational system and media reports that gives them accurate information, both historical and present, reflecting the African American relationship with the U.S. Government, most are totally oblivious to the true fundamental core character of this existing relationship.

    To truly find the truth behind the baffling phenomenon of disparities plaguing America ’s Black communities, it is necessary to first learn the true fundamental core character of the American society as it relates to African Americans. Therefore, a recapitulation of the suppressed, forgotten, and repressed offenses by the U.S. Government against its Black population is extremely necessary to build up a more accurate picture of the forgotten relationship between African Americans and the U.S. government-- and so that we may learn what it reveals. Obtaining a more accurate perception of the true core relationship shared between the U.S. government and its Black population requires a thorough reexamination of those many now forgotten past unitary racist actions committed by the U.S. Government against the advancement and interests of its African American population. According to Sigmund Freud, recognition of repressed material is very valuable because it deprives the negative material of its persistent strength.

    There is perhaps no place better to begin this recapitulation than an examination of the American presidents. For although some presidents endorsed policy measures supportive of equal treatment of people, their public and private comments throughout history verifies that, despite the improvement in civil rights legislation and policies made during each of their administrations, the presidents still maintained and displayed negative disdain towards it Black population.

    Such an example was that of president Abraham Lincoln, for although he is revered by White historians as the great White emancipator of the African slaves, President Abraham Lincoln in 1857 had urged legislatures to appropriate money for colonization in order to remove free Blacks from the United States to prevent miscegenation [mixing of the race] for he believed and openly stated that Blacks and Whites were too different to live together. He was assassinated before he could carry out his plan.

    And although now portrayed as a romantic figure because of his affairs with African female slaves, President Thomas Jefferson nevertheless stated that "the negroes are equal to Whites only in the point of memory, but much inferior in general reasoning ability, and lack in imagination and their grief’s are transient."

    And although President Truman issued executive orders that ended segregation in the military, his reference to Blacks as "pigs" and “******s” continued long thereafter (Hunt, 1987, p.163) suggesting that he had not abandoned his racist perceptions about African Americans. This was also similar of President Lyndon B. Johnson who, although engineering much of the 1960's Civil rights legislation, did not –according to biographer C. Dale, 1991 pages 519-520 – expunge the word “******” from his vocabulary even after becoming president .

    Furthermore, according to historians Blanche Wiesen Cook- (1981, p.173), President Dwight Eisenhower sympathized with southern anxieties about the court's decision in Brown vs. Board of education. These comments made by each of these presidents supports the premise that the improvement in civil rights legislation and policies developments in the United States was not born of White redemption or changes of their hearts and perceptions towards its negro population, but instead made due to the changing of times and the recognition of volatility of racial conflict in American society.

    A statement perhaps best reflecting the collective attitudes and ideologies of America 's founding White elites was one written by a popular Michigan editor who in 1862 wrote that "this government was made for the benefit of the White race and not the Negro." He further wrote that, "the negroes were and always had been a distinct group in the U.S. in that the majority of them were held in a system of bondage, while those fortunate enough to escape such fate lived as un-welcomed guests in a White society.” Also Benjamin Franklin, one of America 's most beloved and respected founding fathers, concurred with the preceding statement saying that he regretted that the number of "purely White race" people in the world was proportionately very small. Because he feared that the inferior race, particularly including Blacks, threatened their White existence.

    Many influential and successful African Americans -- they that have become complacent and blinded by their own individual success -- will defend the position that these sentiments are merely outdated words of a forgotten American segment whose ideology has long since been overcome as a nation, however, this text will unequivocally demonstrate that, while this type of rhetoric of racism is no longer commonly overtly spoken, its ideology and practices are very much still a part of the fiber of the U.S. government today.
    For although the United States Government portrays itself as the leading ethical and moral authority of the world and professes equal rights for all American citizens, its oldest and most important objective has always been an unyielding commitment towards the preservation of its White dominance. That objective has always directly correlated with the necessity to suppress the advancement and growth of its Black population because, if the U.S. government treated its Black population in a manner which does not promote its interest of maintaining White dominance and control, it would render the U.S. Government diametrically in opposition to itself; therefore, it secretly uses every conceivable means and opportunity to suppress its Black population, even those that trample upon its own stated ethical values.

    Evidence of this anti Black governmental objective was first brutally made apparent at the end of the Civil War when President Abraham Lincoln, after having acknowledged that the contributive efforts of the thousands of Black Americans that voluntarily enlisted into the Union Army as being a significant factor for the victory attained by the North, he then ordered his union army to simply fold up their tents and return home leaving the newly freed slaves to restore their shattered lives left unhealed after centuries of slavery, severely vulnerable to their former masters that where forced to retire their slave driving business. The U.S. federal government left those bitter former slave masters to conduct racial matters anyway they saw fit. This abandonment led to the southern states reinventing its method of suppressing African Americans by implementing Jim Crow legalized segregation laws that not only continued the denigration and suppression of African Americans, but also created an environment that promoted and sanctioned the brutal atrocious lynching's, beatings and mutilations of thousands of African Americans. More then 5,000 lynching's [including northern states] where documented between reconstruction and the late 1960s. .

    In the face of such brutal atrocities committed against African Americans -- and although thousands of African Americans had participated in not only the Civil War, but also subsequently in two world wars in defense of America, and despite the many episodes of lurid publicity of Black's degradation and brutal murders in the South and the well publicized civil rights demonstrations --, the attention of the U.S. federal government did not focus on the civil rights abuse of Blacks, but instead condoned these atrocities for more than one-hundred years. The federal government did not intervene until the 1960's Civil Rights Movement's protest through civil disobedience strategies brought global attention to the suffering of African American, and even still it was only after White supporters where killed that the U.S. government actually acknowledged the condition of the southern Blacks and acted.

    The U.S. government, not only sanctioned brutal injustices and racist policies implemented against the advancement of African Americans in the South but also, legalized racist policies nationally against the advancement of African Americans. In 1896, the United States Supreme Court ruled on Plessey vs. Ferguson , a law suit challenging the legality of Whites-only train cars in New Orleans that the provision of separate but equal facilities for Blacks was not a violation of the fourteenth amendment. This decision allowed states to segregate not only transportation, but also parks, swimming pools, beaches, food services, theatre, health facilities and schools, virtually every area of public life for the next half a century until the 1954 ruling of Brown v. the Board of education.

    The American Government, while professing equality for all of her citizens, in fact uses every conceivable means to seal or maintain its White dominance and advantage -- especially with regards to its African American population. No place is this fact made more evident than when examining the United States Government’s long history of implementing suppressive tactics against African American civil right leaders and their organizations for merely pursuing the full measures and rights of citizenship for all African Americans.

    Within a true democracy, the citizens have a right, if not a duty to speak out when the government is wrong in action or policy. However, as seen throughout America 's history, regardless of which position peacefully taken by African Americans in their plight of obtaining even the basic of equality of citizenship, the American government has always deemed it a threat to its national interest. Such is seen wherein Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., for his merely seeking equality for African Americans, the then FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover deemed it a threat to national interest. And with support of the United States Attorney General Bobby Kennedy, and the acknowledgement of his brother President John F. Kennedy, Mr. Hoover ordered the wire tapping and surveillance of Dr. King and denied him many numbers of foundation grants and public speaking engagements. Furthermore, the Government, in an effort to influence control of Dr. King, threatened to discredit him by making public the information obtained by their surveillances. Dr. King, nevertheless, maintained his position and momentum and was subsequently murdered shortly thereafter. Ironically, the United States Government also implemented similar strategies against Malcolm X, for seeking, contrary to Dr. King’s strategy, to segregate from Whites. There were similar deterrent strategies implemented by the U.S. government against Marcus Garvey for advocating a return to Africa . What is being demonstrated here is that regardless of which position peacefully taken as law-biding advocates for change by African Americans these actions where always deemed as a threat to America’s national interest by its government.
    Furthermore, these actions where neither isolated nor uncommon for the U.S. government did not only target the famous and more influential African Americans leaders, but also targeted many minor civil rights leaders at the grass root levels. Nor did the U.S. government limit its activities to just wire-tapping and surveillances, but also implemented direct campaigns of harassment to dismantle and demobilize many promising projects intended to improve the lives of African Americans. One such example was when a civil rights worker named Donald Jackson, also the victim of government covert operations of influence, wherein the government used forged correspondence causing him to abandon a promising project in Jackson, Mississippi. Mr. Jackson had foundation grants to form Black economic cooperatives and open a Black and Proud school for dropouts. He was also a student organizer at the nearby Tougaloo College. In the winter of 1969, after an extended campaign of FBI and police harassment, Mr. Jackson received a letter, purportedly from the Tougaloo College Defense Committee which directed that he cease his political activities immediately and that, if he did not heed their diplomatic and well-thought- out warning, the committee would consider taking measures "which would have a more direct effect and which would not be as cordial as this note.” Mr. Jackson and his wife left. Only years later did they learn it was not the Tougaloo students, but the FBI covert operators who had driven them out. The monitoring and surveillance of African American organizations is an ongoing practice that is continued even today by the United States Government.

    The list of monitored organizations may have included or continue to include the following: The Black Muslims, The New Black Panther Party, Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, Congress of Racial Equality, Uhuru Movement, Group On Advanced Leadership, Freedom Now Party, United Black Nationalist of America, The New Pan- American Movement, Southern Christian Leadership Conference, The National Urban League, The National Association For the Advancement of Colored People, and the Committee on Racial and Religious Progress.

    The U.S. Government’s unyielding determination for maintaining its White dominance is so profound that it even breaches ethical boundaries under the pretext of national interest. Here is a story that originally appeared in Haber's nationally syndicated column on May 19, 1970. It is a story wherein the FBI used false media stories against a White pregnant civil rights activist that ended tragically. The FBI targeted Jean Seberg a White married film star active in the anti-racist cause, therefore leaked a false story anonymously to columnist Joyce Haber of the Los Angeles Times that claimed that Jean Seberg was pregnant by a prominent Black leader. This governmental strategy subsequently resulted in a stressed induced still birth and the nervous breakdown and suicide of Mrs. Seberg. Her husband sued the FBI as responsible for the stress from this attack upon the victim's character. Perhaps what is most profound in this case is that she was a White woman merely active in the "anti racist cause" and yet she was also deemed as a threat to America ’s national interest and targeted.

    The U.S. Government's desire to suppress the advancement of its Black population was also made evident during the integration of its public schools, wherein it flagrantly, wrongfully integrated Black students into an educational system where they are taught only to admire the accomplishment of Whites and to despise Africans as being non contributors of civilization. The new education system failed to provide Black students the same essential racially affirming curriculum of themselves to base their capabilities and potentials upon as it so routinely deemed it a necessity to provide for its White students-thus cutting off their aspirations of Black children at its roots. No group of children can adequately academically compete with other students while being educated to respect the accomplishments of every other racial group except themselves. And then shamefully the U.S. Education Secretary and White House officials dare to express surprise when Black students actively resist learning or that their will or ability to learn diminishes given such a mortifying educational setting. For most African Americans their schools are the first place where they learn just how little they're valued in America .

    When it comes to its African Americans population, gross transgressions against the constitution and human rights are secretly deemed as acceptable. The U.S. Government’s unyielding determination for maintaining its White dominance not only breaches ethical lines, but also breaches its own constitutional laws and the very human rights of its Black population. As witnessed in the 1980's when the CIA pushed drugs into the Black communities of Los Angeles-thus poisoning its African American communities by the proliferation of drugs and high powered weaponry. The evidence shows that, for nearly 10 years, a Central Intelligence Agency operation sold crack cocaine by the ton along with sophisticated assault weapons to two Los Angeles youth gangs, the Cripps and the Bloods, and then ignited a blood bath of violence between them. These drugs and weaponry were then disseminated to many African Americans communities throughout the United States destroying the lives of millions of African Americans while stimulating the economy through the prison industry. Black America has never fully recovered from this governmental attack.

    The U.S. Government's determination to maintain its White dominance knows no limit. This fact was again made evident when for forty years between 1932 and 1972, the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) conducted dangerous syphilis experiment on four hundred Black men. These men where unknowingly infected by the U.S. Government with syphilis [to believe that such a large number of Black share croppers were all naturally infected is ridiculously absurd] and then told that they were being treated for "bad blood." Their doctors, hired by the government, had no intention of curing them of syphilis at all. These men were deliberately left to degenerate painfully under the ravishes of the disease – with symptoms including blindness, tumors, paralysis, insanity and then death -- to allow the U.S. Government to collect the needed data from their autopsies. Although this story was released by an Associated Press reporter, Jean Heller, on July 25, 1972, it still did not get an acknowledgment or apology from the U.S Government for yet another 25 more years when, on May 16, 1997, President Clinton apologized to the eight remaining survivors.

    These forgotten and suppressed records of history substantiate clearly, not only that the U.S. Government possesses an unyielding determination for maintaining its White dominance but also, that it will use every-conceivable means imaginable to meet this national objective. Given such astounding evidence of this fact, it is a wonder that more African Americans have not questioned the convenient targeting of America's AIDS epidemic hitting hardest its two most discriminated groups-- its Gay and Black populations. Why [in January 2000] did President Clinton officially assigned the National Security Council and the Central Intelligence Agency to supervise the U.S. Governments global campaign against AIDS ? These agencies seem unqualified to fight disease. Why weren’t the U.S. public health service and Center for Disease control given the task? Although the constant degradation of Blacks in the media makes such a premise easier to accept, are we really to believe that the millions of African Americans today infected by the HIV and AIDS virus are all practicing homosexuals or IV drug users? Or is it more likely that they are victims of a virus made in a governmental medical lab used as a political ethnic weapon to maintain White dominance?

    Difficult as it may be for some to accept, however, America 's own history of governmental strategies implemented against the better interest of African Americans unequivocally confirms that the U.S. government does possess an interest in suppressing the advancements and interests of its Black population. Given such overwhelming historical evidence demonstrating this hypothesis, it would be extremely naive to believe otherwise. Now having realized this fact about the U.S. Government, should we, African Americans, not question a sea of many White [and now also Black] governmental officials who urge us to close our eyes and trust them despite an unprecedented history to the contrary?

    The intention here is to demonstrate that, despite the many substantial gains made today by African Americans in the field of entertainment, education, and politics, the U.S. Government’s unyielding determination to maintain its White dominance by implementing methods of suppressing its Black population has not been abandoned, but rather that it has been more sophisticatedly reincarnated. Today, the masses of African Americans remain still the largest, most racially devalued and most deliberately exploited and suppressed class in America , only now the methods have changed. The methods now used by the U.S. Government avoid the conventional, blatant, now morally unacceptable methods used in the past.

    Today, for the most part, the manner in which African Americans confront White racism is very outdated. In fact, it may be compared to the example of an old prize fighter shadow boxing in the corner of a ring long after, and totally unaware that, his opponent has moved behind him now pulverizing him from the rear, or that of a matador in a bull fight waving his red cape in the wind attempting to taunt the bull not realizing that the bull has already gouged out his heart. These examples, although very brutal, are appropriate in describing how Black America is faring against today’s modern system of White racism. Today, unfortunately, whenever the topic of racism is discussed among African Americans, this implies (for most) the images of police brutality, consumer profiling, driving while Black, and, of course, the Ku Klux Klan and other similar White anti-Black organizations. While these are all serious elements of institutionalized racism that collectively deserve our attention, these noted racist elements are neither the most prevalent nor the most detrimental form of racism faced by African Americans today.

    The most prevalent and lethal system of racism assaulting African Americans today is now applied through the government’s proven method of Covert Counterintelligence Program [ COINTELPRO]: A misnomer for Domestic Covert Actions. For almost half a century now-- because the blatant methods of racism used and condoned in the past are no longer morally and socially acceptable -- the U.S. Government has implemented a far more sophisticated method of assuring that its White dominance is maintained through the usage of COINTELPRO Psychological Warfare. By doing so, they acquired a far more insidious and covert method of maintaining White dominance that exists behind a clever shroud of secrecy and deceit — for it is in this way that the evils of racism thrive best -- when its victims do not recognize the evil. A method that covertly uses mis-education and false propaganda media reports that equates a psychological warfare that deliberately conspires to severely reduce African America’s upward mobility by corrupting them of unity, reason, and common sense, deliberately soliciting the disparity that has now become modern Black America.

    Here is a simplified analogy of how this is being done to America ’s Black population. Let us say, for example, that a group of people was aboard their own massive ship and that their ship was being shadowed by another neighboring ship, a neighboring ship that was constantly broadcasting derogatory messages to the first group that their ship was lesser, smaller, not seaworthy or perhaps slowly sinking or that their crew was incompetent or was planning a mutiny. With time, the group receiving the negative messages, being unable to refute or to confirm these derogatory messages and deficiencies will grow weary and paranoid of the negative messages and will eventually comes to accept these negative assessments of themselves. The perception created by the taunting now unconsciously influences how the taunted group perceives themselves, subsequently causing them to become distrustful of themselves, doubting themselves, hating themselves and, eventually, fighting among themselves. The taunted group may even become so besieged by deep feelings of inadequacy that they may even jump into the sea and attempt to swim towards the taunting ship now believing it to be superior to their own boat even if their own ship was in fact better.

    This concept of warfare uses psychology as the decisive factor in the outcome. The basis of the concept is that the human being's most critical aspect is the mind. This science of psychology works by affecting the unconscious mind through deception. Its weapon is the message that it carries and the way this message affects the recipients in terms of their behavior. Within a real world setting, this is implemented against African Americans through U.S. governmental agencies that leak false derogatory press releases, documentaries, and media information concerning its Black population that are designed to perpetuate and frame the myth of Whites’ racial, moral, and ethical superiority over its Black population. Its collaborators in the news media, which either knowingly or unknowingly carry the false information or create their own false information through news releases in magazine articles, radio, and television, work to demoralize, discourage, berate, subjugate, and or dismantle the Black population. It insinuates that America would be a better society as a whole if African Americans were gone, thus psychologically changing the root problem of racism in America to be due to Black’s behavior rather than White’s proclivity for racism.

    This perversion of reality, shifting the blame, and role reversal of the problem of racism to be the fault of African Americans, is perpetuated unrelentingly everywhere through press releases, pamphlets, radio, newspaper, and magazine articles and television. The weapon is not the way it is sent, but the messages that it carries and how the messages affect the recipient and influence society. This campaign engenders a shift of victimization that fosters distorted perceptions and increasingly prejudiced and acrimonious beliefs about its African American population that creates a consensual environment that facilitates the easier exploitation and suppression of Black America. [For when contempt of Blacks appears to be justifiable, it is the fiercest and most effective type of racism because its witnesses, bystanders, and jurors will sit by idly allowing African Americans to be brutally mistreated under the belief that it is justified.]

    Although this may sound a bit like bad science fiction, Psychological Warfare is a real and well-proven technology that exceeds the territorial limits of conventional warfare to penetrate the proposed target. This type of psychological warfare has been used by the military since World War II. The British Special Operation Executives (SOE) was pioneering this form of propaganda during the Second World War. The British Government, between1930- 1940, conducted psychological warfare against Germany, by putting together a massive department staffed by many former journalists that conducted secret journalism and planted favorable stories in the world's press. Generally using friendly newspapers editors, but also using bribery to get pro-allied stories in print, British pilots also dropped propaganda leaflets and spread rumors concerning Germany 's relations with France and other aspects of the war.

    An example of the usage of psychological warfare within a military setting may be seen in the deployment of massive fleets of U.S. Naval battle carriers to the Mediterranean Sea to foster the psychological response of fear or intimidation from the neighboring countries. Psychological warfare may also be used to perpetuate the myths of America 's military dominance over its enemies thus adversely affecting their moral and motivation to fight back. Such is seen where perhaps a company of enemy soldiers are well fortified within their trenches well prepared for the anticipated incoming American military assault. The U.S military may respond to this enemy’s high state of combat preparedness by using pilots to fly over their positions dropping propaganda leaflets spreading rumors and false information concerning the enemy’s vulnerabilities or giving them an exaggerated number of the incoming American troops. The targets here are the minds of the enemy troops and the objective is to deeply affect their morale and motivation to fight back. Under this psychological operation of influence, the enemy troops may surrender at the first sight of the approaching American troops without the Americans having fired a single shot. A popular motto among the users of these covert operations is "Capture their minds, and their hearts and souls will follow." For once their minds are reached, they're defeated without bullets. Used in all aspects of war, the effectiveness of psychological warfare is limited only by the ingenuity of the commanders using it.

    The uses to which psychological warfare can be applied are virtually unlimited. For the U.S. Government also uses psychological operations to assist in the sales of arms and weaponry. The United States Government is the world’s largest arms dealer, and to ensure that these sales continue, it often resorts to the unethical usage of psychological operations. Here is an example of how such an implementation may be done. Let us say, for example, that an African kingdom that has purchased arms in the past from the U.S. Government has now decided that there no longer exists any threat from its neighboring kingdoms and therefore elects to discontinue their spending of millions of dollars on unneeded weaponry. The U.S. Government may respond to this refusal to continue buying their arms by themselves creating a threat of imminent war between the targeted kingdom and its neighboring African kingdoms. This would be done by employing Special Forces and other types of espionage specialist to plant lies and rumors of war thus igniting conflict and distrust between the targeted African kingdom and its neighboring kingdoms which often results in both empires now buying arms from the U.S. Government.

    Although the usage of psychological warfare began within a military setting, it was eventually realized by governmental and societal elites that this method of psychological warfare could be useful for totally controlling society. Therefore, psychological warfare technology evolved from its military usage against foreign enemies to being used to control society domestically. Today, the U.S. government, like many other developed nations, conducts planned campaigns of extensive strategic psychological operations through the national media to influence the perception and climate of the nation towards the attainment of its governmental objectives. Participating federal agencies may include the National Security Council, The Office of Strategic Council, The Central Intelligence Agency, and The Federal Bureau of Investigations. However, when it is executed domestically it is more often commonly referred to by governmental and military officials as a psychological operations [PSYOPs] rather than Psychological Warfare.

    Psychological warfare can also be used to create a brazen deception in order to create a pretext for war with the true intent of achieving global geo-political objectives. This is where governmental agents secretly create or allow terrorism in the United States for the purpose of mobilizing public opinion in favor of the government’s objectives. Many people have compared this example to those actions taken by the U.S. government after the September 11, 2001 attack on America wherein several terrorists high-jacked four American commercial air liners and crashed them into strategic targets in Washington , D.C. and New York , NY . For although all ties to the terrorist attack pointed towards Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia and given that all the historic evidence showed that Saddam Hussein was a vigorous arch enemy of Al Qaeda, President Bush, in his official speech to the nation responding to the atrocious attack, redirected the nation's attentions towards Iraq as a means of fighting the terrorism of Al Qaeda. This strategic operation of influence gained the U.S Government the support of the nation that it needed to send thousands of its service members to war under the pretext of being a war on terrorism, while in fact it successfully met the U.S. objective of what appears to have been more about securing its interest in the Iraq oil wells. The targets, then, were the minds of the entire American population, our military troops and the civilian population. [For those readers that find this premise too difficult to accept, I strongly suggest that you read a 1962 governmental document now unclassified and provided under the freedom of information act entitled “Operation North Woods” documenting a governmental plan to take a civilian aircraft, replace it with an automatic unmanned aircraft, then shoot it down and blame the incident on Cuba in order to go to war.]

    The preceding example of U.S. government usage of psychological warfare to influence the nation is only a single act among a long list of many conducted by the U.S. Government. Every act of the government has a psychological impact, and it is ongoing from President Bush's media coverage stunt where he landed upon a U.S. Naval battle carrier dressed as a pilot, to the U.S. soldiers pulling down the statue of Saddam Hussein in Iraq , to the staged rescue of Jessica Lynch. These strategies are all part of the sophisticated system of psychological warfare, and they are on-going, all around us, all of the time.

    The ability to influence the nation in mass using psychological operations through the national media is highly effective because the media itself is very powerful in terms of its influence. For the media helps shape our views of the world, what we consider to be good or bad, and also forges our deepest values, identities, and our sense of what it means, for example, to be male or female. These facts, combined with those studies showing that the average American watches 18 hundred hours of television each year, affirm that there is a great inclination for Americans to be affected by psychological operations conducted through the national media.

    The reason psychological warfare is so unknown to most Americans is because its very nature is to be covert, and because it is not the stuff of adventure and the excitement of war that films or novels portray. However, psychological warfare is a real, sound, and proven governmental technology that has been used by the U.S. Government for many decades, and its usage is ongoing even now. For as recently as July 2004, a story was reported by the New York Times that the Defense Department had paid the Rendon Group, a Washington-based international consulting firm, $100,000 per month to help the Office of Strategic Information (OSI) with a broad campaign that would include negative propaganda or disinformation. The report stated that the OSI was established to spread positive messages about the war on terrorism, but it would also use disinformation and misinformation to mislead friends and foe alike. The report went on to say that the office of Strategic Influence had been set up to disseminate truthful information openly but also to spread what senior pentagon officials called "the Blackest of Black programs.” The organization works on ways to influence and mislead the media abroad and also domestically in America, such as spreading positive messages about the war on terrorism or perpetuating disinformation through its frequent collusion with news media personnel to publish false and distorted material at the government's behest.

    The U.S. Government’s methods for implementing domestic psychological warfare also include the ability to suppress particular targeted groups. This is seen when governmental agencies leak false, derogatory press releases, documentaries, and media information to its collaborators in the news media which the media knowingly or unknowingly carry as its own and submit the false information through news releases and in magazine articles, radio, and television to demoralize, discourage, subjugate, and or dismantle the targeted groups. This method of psychological operation is disseminated through face-to-face communication or television, audio media, newspaper, books, and magazine. The weapon is not in the media used, but the message that it carries and how the messages affect the recipient. This method of psychological operation works by, first, simply learning everything about the targeted group, their beliefs, likes, dislikes, strengths, and vulnerabilities. Once you know what motivates your target, you are ready to begin psychological operations against them.

    We have completed a review of the U.S. government's history and methods of applying psychological operations of influence, most particularly its method of utilizing the national media to disseminate domestic psychological operations to suppress targeted groups. The intention is to now show in a instructive manner rather than an accusatory manner that, since the means of economic and political control used in the past under the pretext of national interest are no longer morally and socially acceptable, the U.S. governmental and societal capitalist elites have modified their methods of exploiting and suppressing its Black population into a form more socially acceptable in contemporary times: psychological warfare operations.

    THE RISE OF THE BLACK MATRIX
    How, why, and when was this developed and coordinated? During the 1960’s, America ’s brutal racial mistreatment of African Americans created much unrest and discord. Wide-spread violence ensued which increasingly placed the peace and stability of the nation in dire jeopardy. Demonstrations of unrest and rioting became a part of the familiar scene. This violence resulted in the decline of national stability and loss of lives and property that cost the nation and taxpayers millions of dollars. These factors, combined with the rapidly tarnishing American global image, led the U.S. Government’s agents of White supremacy to quickly reform their techniques of institutionalized racism. The problem led the then president, Lyndon B Johnson, ordering that a commission be formed, later known as the Kerner Commission, to investigate and prescribe the cure for the 1960’s race riots and to make recommendations. The Commission concluded that blatant White racism was the single aggravating factor for the collective problems. The Kerner report’s findings recommended that the U.S. Government abandon the condoning of open, blatant forms of racism to control and maintain White dominance. This abandoning of dated tactics led to the need for developing an improved method of controlling and suppressing its Black population. Changing times made it necessary for the U.S. government to change its methods to a much more subtle and socially acceptable means of continuing its racial suppression of Blacks and to maintain its White dominance. Clearly, the sophisticated method of psychological warfare met such a need. It was the logical choice, perfect for the changing times. Unlike the blatantly brutal forms of racism used in the past which Blacks were able to identify easily and therefore unify and form counter strategies, this modern method of racism works from a psychological perspective. This provided the U.S. government a more socially acceptable method of continuing the White racial hierarchy for dominance and control given that it is not as easily recognized. This new method exists in the space between overt racism and racial respect. Its methods include the ability to both influence the national climate and engender personal psychological feelings among Americans that meet the U.S government objective.

    This concept of the U.S government using psychology as a weapon to influence and control its Black population is not at all ridiculous. For more than a century ago, Charles Darwin predicted in his book "The Origin of Species" (1859) that "the evolutionary theory would one day provide a new foundation for the science of psychology." The truth in his words has been borne out. The change came when modern advances in our understanding of the genetics of social behavior ushered in Sociobiology; a controversial new science of the biological study of social behavior of humans. Since the 1950's, U.S. experimental psychologists and Cognitive scientists have developed ideas about the unconscious mental process that proposes that most of our mental processes happen outside of our awareness suggesting that the ability to control the behavior of people around us subconsciously is now a distinct possibility. Moreover, over the past five decades, human sociobiology has transformed into an evolutionary psychology that has gained science the means and ability to control and, therefore, predict the actions and feelings of individuals or groups merely by the messages conveyed against them.

    According to this controversial use of psychology, the human mind is the most extraordinary part of the human body, and there seems to be little doubt, wrote biologist David Barash, "that the unconscious is real and that in certain obscure ways the forces of culture are all-powerful in shaping human behavior. . Advances in these studies resulted in governments using psychology as a weapon for maintaining White dominance.

    While this may still sound incredibly ridiculous or unbelievable for many, psychological warfare is a real method of warfare that is commonly used by the U.S. Government. It was even used during the Iraq war. The United States Military dropped propaganda leaflets on Iraq and planted favorable stories about the new Iraq in the Baghdad press, radio, and television media and also removed all mention of Saddam Hussein from the Baghdad grades school educational curricula. Its usage of psychological warfare has been ongoing throughout the entire combat operation in Iraq from the initial battle thru the so-called rebuilding of Iraq . Moreover, the U.S. Government’s methods of rewriting the Iraq schools curriculum, thus creating a curriculum more favorable in its depiction of westerners/Whites and using the Iraqi national media to perpetuate propaganda and misinformation to facilitate their easier exploitation and suppression, are remarkably consistent with the current social conditions and experiences of African Americans. As for those who still doubt that such a conspiratorial dimension of racism exists at the governmental level in the United States, I strongly recommend that they read the National Security Council Memorandum– 46, and also Kenneth O’Reilley’s “Racial Matters: The FBI’s Secret File on Black America, 1960-1972.”

    The objective of the United States government has always been to maintain its White dominance over its Black population, and clearly, psychological warfare meets this need—because it covertly creates a national climate that allows the government to suppress consensually the advancement of its African American population and to maintain its White dominance and national stability. Furthermore, history overwhelmingly demonstrates that the White race’s innate proclivity for racism, control, and dominance is much too deeply engrained for them to just merely give up their practices of implementing suppressive methods over its African American population.

    Furthermore, the social structure of America's White societal elites was formed on the premise that there must be maintained a class of people to perform menial duties, to perform the drudgery work required to sustain life, and to take the lower paying jobs requiring “a lower order of intellect and skill.”

    Clearly, the method of psychological warfare provides the United States Governmental elites with a method for meeting this need but doing so with the added benefit of not appearing racist. The records of history show that the reincarnation of suppressive methods into forms more acceptable to the changing times is a common practice of the United States government as seen after the abolishment of slavery wherein its methods of using racist, oppressive treatment of its Black population was reincarnated into Jim Crow laws. And, also, let us not forget the many sorts of devious strategies and methods used to prevent Blacks from becoming registered voters. The historic and demonstrative evidence overwhelmingly reflects the reality that the U.S. government does manifest a proclivity for reinventing devious methods to suppress its Black population. This proclivity has led to the U.S. Government now using its proven method of psychological operations to control the advancement and growth of its Black population. It was the next logical choice for it provides the Government the benefit of the appearance of conducting humanitarian efforts to help its Black community while covertly seeking only to maintain its White dominance. Those who forget history are destined to have history’s crimes repeated against them.

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE AGAINST AFRICAN AMERICANS
    The objective of this psychological warfare against African Americans is to create a shift in victimization in behalf of whites that lessens pressure for social change on behalf of Blacks thus making the nation and the entire world insensitive to the plight of African Americans, thus successfully striping them of the national and international support that was acquired during the 1960's civil rights struggles. This is done by an immense campaign of false statistics and media reports degrading its back population and disproportionately portraying Black men as the face of crime and Black women as the face of welfare. These portrayals of African Americans are totally false and inaccurate but are necessary to make it appear that Black behavior is the reason for White racism in the U.S. Moreover, this method also makes any serious criticism of White racism almost impossible today. Not only does it tranquilize efforts on behalf of Blacks, it also affects attitudes that, when enacted through governmental policies, laws, and other legislation actions, serve to ensure that African Americans will not advance. Its effects are manifested in ideas, education, governmental policies, economic stratification, social segregation, housing markets, hiring and promotion practices, psychological issues, and minority access to a variety of social services and opportunity. It also creates a false justification for the legal system’s mistreatment of African Americans wherein they are disproportionately incarcerated, given stiffer sentences, and are more likely than other racial groups to be treated brutally, beaten, and fired upon by police officers while they are unarmed. Moreover, some studies have shown that this shift of victimization now reflects increasingly acrimonious beliefs and prejudiced perceptions about and against African Americans that are arguably stronger today than they were after emancipation. A testimony to the effectiveness of this psychological indoctrination upon the psyches of the White [non elite] masses was made evident during a study conducted wherein White students were shown a video tape of a White man lightly shoving a Black man during an argument. Only 13% percent rated the White man’s behavior as violent, however, when the shoving situation was reversed, 73% percent stated the Black man was acting violently.

    A more brutal example of the now acrimonious prejudiced perceptions of African Americans among the White masses was seen during the Rodney King beating incident which sparked the 1992 L.A. riots when four police officers beat Mr. King as he lay helpless on the street. The beating scene was widely televised and was repeatedly played in court during the police trial. However, the all-White jury during the first trial found the cops not guilty because, psychologically, it is now ingrained within their psyche that the brutal abuse was somehow justifiable.

    The United States Government’s psychological operation of devaluing African Americans is not always recognized. In fact, in most cases, it is executed very subtly and is often done under the pretext of helping African Americans, while in fact actually exploiting them. For example, in August 1996, then President William “Bill” Clinton signed the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act, better known as the “Welfare Reform” Bill. During the ceremonial undertaking, which was broadcast on television to the entire nation and the world, the president was strategically accompanied by two African American welfare moms who were positioned on either side of him as he signed the new bill—perpetuating false images of African American women without using overt racism —thus feeding and perpetuating the racist stereotype that the largest recipients of welfare are “lazy Black mothers.”

    This image was filmed, photographed, and transmitted all over the world.
    These types of actions by the White House feed the government’s objective of changing the face of racism in America to reflect that the racial problem in America stems from behavior among African Americans which justifies White attitudes towards Blacks while producing psychological feelings of embarrassment, gratitude, and indebtedness among Blacks towards the American government. The fact, however, is that the majority of welfare mothers are White women, and regardless of the many false images of social programs of welfare and food stamps for the benefit of African Americans perpetuated through the media, the largest recipient of these benefits cannot and will never be African American women. For let us remember that, according to U.S. government statistics, Black women make up only 6 % of the nation’s total population. Therefore, even if a ridiculously high number like half of all Black women were welfare recipients, that still would equate to only 3 % of the population. Clearly, the negative, fraudulent portrayal of Black women as being the majority of welfare moms is a prime example of psychological warfare.

    Perhaps no president relied more heavily on the use of the psychological operation that portrayed African American Women as negative welfare queens than Ronald Reagan (Green and McCall, 1987). Reagan's career as an actor and spokesperson for General Electric provided him with an audience to redefine his storytelling style and to perfect the ability of appealing to the concerns and fears of White voters without the use of overtly racist appeals. Reagan's campaigns revolved around themes that exemplified the image of the Black welfare queen. Such was seen when he challenged Gerald Ford for the Republican Party nomination for president. Reagan gave an elaborate story of “welfare abuse” that appeared in the New York Times, February 15, 1976, p1 which stated the following: "There's a woman in Chicago . She has 80 names, 30 addresses, 12 social security cards, and is collecting veteran benefits on 4 non-existing deceased husbands. And she is collecting social Security on her cards. She's got Medicaid, is getting food stamps, and she is collecting welfare under each name. Her tax-free income is over $150,000.” The speech emphasized how "they, the abusers, enjoy lives of leisure, whereas "we" [Whites] work harder than ever before with little chance of ever getting ahead.” The welfare queen abuse story played, and continues to play, well among the White masses, and its reference to the abuser leaves little doubt about the implied racial identity of the abuser without stating the racial identity of the abuser explicitly. The story then acquires a life of its own, far more elaborate and lucrative than before. At times, she has more kids and less husbands. Nevertheless, it worked because it delivered messages penetrating the consciousness of White voters across party lines. After Regan defeated Carter in the 1980 election, the welfare stories made it possible for him to reduce social programs.

    While portraying most welfare moms in America as being Black women, the government’s psychological operation also disproportionately perpetuates the image Black men as the literal face of crime in America . Although commonly presumed accurate and accepted, this representation is totally inaccurate for it presents a problem of semantics; the numbers just does not properly add up. For according the U.S. government, African Americans make up just above 12% percent of the total American population. From this number, let us attempt to quantify these African Americans that make up most of America ’s criminals. Let’s begin by subtracting from this 12% percent the amount of 6% represented by Black women. This leaves just 6% percent of the total American population as being African American males. Let us now assume a ridiculously high number such as half of all Black men in America as criminals. This total number of African American male criminals would still only comprise just 3% percent of the total national population. Moreover, we did not even bother to subtract from that original 6% those African American males that (disproportionately ) make up almost 35% of the United States military.

    The point being made here is that it is, in fact, literally impossible for America ’s Black population to equate to what is negatively portrayed in the national media. The point being made here is also that the absolute number of African Americans is simply too small to equate the statistics and perpetuated images that suggest that Blacks are the face of crime in America . For even if at disproportionately high levels of crime within their own Black communities, the total number of African Americans males is too small to even remotely resemble what the media perpetuates. This is not the result that one would expect from watching the evening news or an episode of the television show "Cops". While some African Americans today live in conditions that have them resorting to crime, never before in the history of America has the actual number of criminal activities of any given year been higher among African Americans than Whites. (Citing a reputable source would be powerful here.)

    The media perpetuation of Black males as the majority of criminals in America is clearly psychological operation at work. Moreover, research has disclosed that most serious crimes such as homicide, rape, and robbery and assault in inner cities are committed by a very small proportion of African Americans youths; some estimate a high of only 7% percent. Furthermore, the majority of crimes in America are committed by White males. [Their immensely larger population is a factor in this]. However, the media perpetuates the image that the majority of crimes are being committed by African American males.

    Another fallacy contributing to the negative propaganda against African American males is that the majority of African American males are in engaged in the use of illegal drugs. However, to the contrary, a report conducted by William Drummond, a University of California at Berkeley journalism professor and co-author of a U.S. Justice Department-sponsored survey, showed that only 6 percent of African Americans had used cocaine in their lifetime, and a great majority of these respondents (65.5 percent) had used it fewer than 11 times. Among Whites respondents, 10.6 percent had used cocaine in their lifetime with 62.3 percent of those respondents saying they had used it fewer than 11 times.

    These noted statistics are completely contrary of what is perpetuated by the racist media. Moreover, because the face of crime is now perpetuated as being Black, any effort by a politician or public figure to address the disproportionate number of African Americans incarcerated or given harsher sentences may now be construed as being soft on crime. Therefore, many Black politicians avoid this topic for fear of appearing soft on crime, which is political suicide.

    This negative and derogatory portrayal of African Americans through the usage of psychological operations of influence was also made apparent during the LA riots of 1992. The media portrayal of the event painted the perception that the Black community was solely responsible for the riots and disturbances. However, according to reports of those arrested, more than a third had full time jobs and some 60% of the rioters and looters were made up of Hispanics and Whites.

    A more recent example of the United States ’ deliberate devaluing of African Americans through the usage of psychological operations was seen during the 2005 flooding of New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. While many African American victims that where left behind suffered from hunger, dehydration, and the trauma of having loved ones dying all around them, the White media was more adept at portraying these Black victims as wild, inhuman, deviant criminals.

    The press presented, for the most part, those images of the desperate and suffering Black families that reinforced their negative and racist stereotypes. As seen, for example, in the desperation of many Black people who took water and food from the vacant stores -- actions deemed a necessity given the circumstances. However, the media painted the perception that most of these Black people were uncontrollable looters stealing equipment and appliances [although their homes were under water and there was no power within the city so, therefore, there existed no place to plug in electrical equipment or appliances]. Nevertheless, the images of Black people taking food and water were perpetuated as looting as “shown” in the constant repetition of the same 5-minute looping footage of so-called looters. On the other hand, Whites doing the same thing were portrayed in television coverage as “shopping for food.” If the “looting” by Blacks was as rampant as reported, why then was there the need to keep repeating the same 5-minute footage again and again? Then, there were the many unfounded rumors broadcast, not only nationally but also globally; that hospitals had been raided by drug addicts; and that there where many gang rapes of women and children in the New Orleans Convention Center; also that babies throats had been cut; and that Black thugs were shooting at rescuers. Although these rumors were later found to be untrue, the damage was already done against African Americans. Then their were the many insensitive racist remarks made by White officials and politicians, where one White official stated that "we couldn't get them out of the projects, however God did" .; another stated; "why are they complaining about the overcrowded conditions in the Superdome when they are accustomed to living [in the substandard conditions] in the ghetto". At a time when African Americans so desperately needed help, the U.S government seized the opportunity to further dehumanize and perpetuate derogatory propaganda about them. One African American victim recounted his experiences saying the following: “After four days of hell in the Superdome, they [the U.S. National Guards] forced men and women into separate lines to board the buses. When we questioned why we had to separate from our children, the National Guards drew their guns on us.” These events in the aftermath of the Hurricane are indicative of the American government’s sentiments towards its Black population. What is more, African Americans are denigrated within every aspect of American society by the U.S. government’s psychological operation -- from their educational failures, their crime statistics, and also their national health statistic reports. Where, based upon the U.S. Government’s national health statistics and reports concerning the health of Black America, it appears as if the bodies of Black people are literally genetically and physically inferior to that of the bodies of Whites.

    However, when examined outside of governmental discretion and control, we see, to the contrary, that Blacks are America ’s greatest athletes. The point being made here is that it is only when statistics are totally in the hands of the White government that the bodies of Blacks appear physically inferior to Whites. These actions by the U.S. government are clearly a case psychological warfare at work for the mounting evidence is too great to be purely coincidental for us not to connect the dots -- it is in fact an exact match. This tendency to routinely subjugate African Americans within the American society is clearly a case of psychological warfare at work for it is too prevalent to be merely dismissed as an oversight or as being the work of a few local governments. It is being deliberately implemented at a national level. This modern racism, as herein defined, has had a serious deleterious effect on the United States as a whole. Therefore, the immediate and social conditions of African Americans will not change as long as our conditions are being covertly manipulated and encouraged by the White societal elites. For as long as Whites are keeping the scores, it will always appear to be that Blacks are on the losing team, in the sinking ship. As long as the White government is assessing the strengths, weaknesses, and crime and health statistics of its Black population, they will always use psychological operation to influence and encourage White dominance and Black suppression. A new reality for African Americans will only be built by a Black society that dares to assess its own weaknesses and strengths and that takes control of the education of their own children.

    IT'S EFFECT UPON AFRICAN AMERICANS
    People are all products of cultural conditions and their worldviews operate outside of their level of consciousness. Therefore, no group can be preconditioned to see only the worst in themselves and not exhibit some degree of negative psychological impact. The worst aspect of this psychological operation against America ’s Black population is, not how it adversely affects race relations, but instead how it causes many African Americans to perceive themselves. It is like the earlier analogy of a group of people aboard their ship constantly receiving derogatory messages that their ship was lesser, smaller, not seaworthy or perhaps slowly sinking, subsequently coming to accept these negative messages and thus becoming distrustful of themselves, doubting themselves, hating themselves and therefore, fighting among themselves. The U.S. Government’s psychological warfare against African Americans also divides and demobilizes African Americans by engendering self-doubt, self-loathing, and distrust among their group.

    The African American psyches have borne centuries of extremely unhealthy and brutal devaluing in the American society from slavery through its aftermath of Jim Crow inequalities, an ongoing racially biased educational system, and now through this method of psychological warfare that routinely subjects African Americans daily to seeing -- through a controlled national media -- only the worst in themselves accomplished through the use of deliberate misinformation, false statistics, and census reports that insinuate that they should admire, respect, and trust only Whites.

    Because no group can be preconditioned to see only the worst in themselves and not exhibit some degree of negative psychological impact, these combined factors collectively contribute detrimentally to the mental health of African Americans and collectively exert an inhibiting effect on the extent to which many African Americans can realize their full human potential. For studies show that what a person thinks and feels about him/herself is largely determined by what others think. Therefore, it goes without question that the immensely mortifying setting to which African Americans are subjected daily would be extremely and fundamentally detrimental to their human condition and psyches. In fact, this systematic mortification of African Americans may be the most ignored and yet most disturbing fact of racial life in America for African Americans. It is believed to be the most aggravating, if not core, factor of the national phenomenon of self hatred; loss of educational aspirations; loss of unity, cohesion and racial pride; and fragile psyches of many African Americans today. Moreover, internalized racism, demoralization, anxiety, and anger over everyday discrimination are to be expected at the levels of the day-to-day mortification and exploitation experienced by African Americans in the United States . And yet, for far too long, many African Americans have been unable to discuss openly and honestly this problem and how it affects the way we perceive ourselves and the way we perceive our aspirations. [Several studies have touched on the connection between discrimination and poor mental health. It has also been linked to higher level of stress and psychological suffering including depression, feelings of hopelessness and of anxiety, fear and self hatred and lower level of life satisfaction. .] Although most African Americans may instinctively feel that something is wrong, they cannot, however, express their suspicions and conceptualize them sufficiently so that they and others can comprehend and act to defend themselves against it nor do most Blacks even believe that they are being attacked and subdued.

    Moreover, all African Americans have experienced the burden of this psychological warfare, some more severely than others. It is experienced every time we [Blacks] read a newspaper, watch the evening news, enter a classroom, and read its racially biased textbooks. And while many Black Americans have successfully navigated through the mortifying system of educational inequality and have gone on to graduate and lead successful, productive lives, for far too many African Americans this immense devaluation can seem inescapable and tragically, over time, many begin to accept subconsciously and painfully the negative portrayals of themselves.

    Many also become discouraged by the acceptance that their society is also preconditioned to see the worst in them and that, therefore, if they were ever to gain acceptance, if it is to be won at all, that success would be hard won and likely to manifest negative internalized psychological pain and distress within many African Americans that can take many forms. Under such extreme degradation as experienced by African Americans, many develop the psychological aberration of control in which we become literally prejudiced against other Blacks; that is, some of us actually acquire the character of the White oppressors, which, ironically, is not uncommon. For whenever one group exists beneath the ideologies and social domination of another group, the perceptions, value system, and the ideologies of the dominant group [directed subconsciously] are assumed by many in the oppressed group as evidence of the effectiveness of the dominant group strategy and tactics.

    This analogy was examined in a recent study within a classroom setting wherein Black and White participants were asked to list things that they hate most about Black people. When questioned, most of the Black respondents’ answers were almost completely in agreement with White respondents when asked the same question.

    The racist view of the dominant White culture permeates from every pore of the American society so unrelentingly that many African Americans themselves have actually acquired these same negative perceptions of themselves. Such is seen when African Americans refer to themselves as “******s;” the White doll syndrome where Black children refuse to play with Black dolls; the cultural pathology wherein Black people negatively label or discriminate against the more ‘typical’ phenotypes such as wider broad noses, coarser hair, larger lips, and ‘darker’ skin amongst themselves. And also as seen where African Americans spend millions of dollars each year on hair softeners, hair extensions, and bleaching skin creams, hair coloring dye, and colored contact lens. Now, many are undergoing cosmetic surgeries reducing the sizes of their noses and lips. It has become so common in fact that it is done unconsciously by African Americans. The premise of a victimized group acquiring the character of their oppressor even when directed against the victimized group was first applied to the experience of Jews living in the pre war Germany by Dr. Sigmund Freud and Dr. Bruno Bettelheim ., but was also soon applied to the experience of African-Americans, by Gordon Allport . and Frantz Fanon ..
    Dr. Herbert Mead, a Social psychologist, says that; "People are not born knowing who they are, they instead acquire their image of themselves over time by realizing their natural abilities and by constantly receiving messages from within their environment" . Furthermore, that "One's self-image derives, in large part, from how one is viewed by others -- school, and the broader society, and what one is taught of himself. (Mead) This premise is particularly unsettling given the day-to-day societal denigration and devaluing experienced by African Americans in America . One would expect them to exhibit some degree of self hatred or mental harm for there can be no doubt that it would be extremely difficult for any race or group not to suffer some psychological harm under such extreme degradation. Stephen Biko described such types of feeling in Donald Woods’ book entitled Biko © 1987 by saying "You begin to feel that there is something not quite right about yourself, about your humanity, and that it has something to do with your Blackness, because no matter how dumb or smart a White child is, he is born into that world”… “But you, the Black child, smart or dumb, you're born into this world and smart or dumb you'll die in it.” Moreover, these feelings may also affect the extent to which many African Americans realize their full human potential, therefore causing deep feelings of hopelessness, despair, and self hatred that causes many to react in an intropunitive manner; that is, they turn their frustrations inward against the self distrusting themselves, doubting themselves, and then subsequently hating and fighting among themselves making them more vulnerable to incarceration, suicide, homicide and substance abuse.

    HOW IT DIVIDES AFRICAN AMERICANS
    The doctrine of psychological warfare teaches to first identify the targeted group’s strength and then unrelentingly attack it. Logic dictates that given that unity and cohesion among African Americans was credited for the demise of White America’s past system of blatant institutionalized racism, that destroying this unity would be an essential objective of the psychological warfare against African Americans.

    The governmental psycho-social treatment of African Americans is designed to mold the character of self hatred. The overrepresentation and exaggeration of Black on Black crime statistics is a propaganda tool in the psychological operation of influence designed to create fear, hatred, and distrust among Blacks thus ultimately dividing the African American community. It is designed to destroy the Black unity and cohesion that historically was the cornerstone of the civil rights gains and the survival of African Americans for more than four hundred years of racial oppression.

    The fact, however, in regards to the overrepresentation of Black-on-Black crime in the media is that crimes within all communities are usually committed by the predominant racial groups that make up those communities. This fact holds true for every race and community. Therefore most crimes, including homicide, within predominately Asian communities are committed by Asians and this remains the same for Latin communities and also White communities. In fact in America , every year more Whites are killed by Whites than any other ethnic group. . Yet, we never ever hear the phrase White-on-White crime do we? In fact, although all racial groups are more often killed by their own group, rarely do we ever hear terms such as Asian-on-Asian crime, or Latino-on-Latino crimes. It is only of African Americans that we hear this. Why? Because there is an intentional attempt by the U.S. government to keep its African American population divided. This is deliberately done to destroy the Black unity and cohesion that historically was the cornerstone of the civil rights gains and the survival of African Americans for more than four hundred years of racial oppression -- thus obtaining the "Divide and Rule” objective. Then there is also the indirect violence that is produced in the Black communities through the feelings of hopelessness, desolation, and self-hatred. This alone would constitute an act of terrorism by the United States Government, and yet it is never held accountable.

    This psychological operation also discourages our brightest and most gifted African Americans who historically were responsible for gathering and motivating the lesser-educated and complacent masses of African Americans to demand equality. Many of these Black elites are rendered disillusioned and frustrated, therefore now having fallen victim in adopting the same disdain and contemptuous views towards the lesser fortunate Black masses as their White counterparts do, themselves saying that the rhetoric of victimization of racism by the lesser fortunate Blacks are merely excuses. They’ve adopt the same ideology and character of their White counterparts in regards to the Black masses; thus making the case that, if they have made it then, all those other less fortunate Blacks can also do the same. Many of these successful Blacks have also moved to the suburbs segregating themselves from the Black masses and, instead of focusing their efforts on the suffering of these Black masses, [Now wealthy, comfortable, and complacent victims of decadence, escapism, and isolated from the exploitation and suffering of the masses] now redirect their attention towards trying to show Whites that not all Blacks are like these negative images depicted. One such an example of this disdain and frustration towards their own Black masses as seen when the actor/ philanthropist turned Black spokesperson Bill Cosby made the televised comments stating that "you Black men need to stop beating on your women when you can't find a job." He, living outside of the ghettos, as developed the same prejudices against the masses of Blacks as his White neighbors. Moreover, what, if anything, does Mr. Cosby know of life within the Black ghettos of America today than what the White propaganda media gives him. Moreover, his comments were continually replayed by the media to perpetuate their racist objectives.

    This psychological operation of influence also undermines Black leadership. Many Black leaders today -- although most will perhaps never publicly admit this -- have become disillusioned and frustrated by the false statistics and representation of their fellow African American masses. Such is seen when on November 27,1993, the Rev. Jessie Jackson said " there is nothing more painful for me at this point in my life than to walk down the street and hear foots steps and start to think of robbery and then turn around and see that it’s someone White and feel relieved.”.. “How humiliating”. Many leaders, in profound frustration and desperation, have called out to the African American community for a spiritual revival of themselves. Moreover, many of our Black leaders have become complacent in terms of significance, gains, and effectiveness. Today, there is no more real striving, no more real struggle, and no significant gains made. Many of our leaders have become insignificant pied pipers who lead the following back masses on outdated foot marching strategies while shouting out the cries of racism and demands for equality. The only effectiveness these strategies serve is as a platform to give the illusion and appearance of hope and action. However, within such a mortifying environment as Black people endure psychologically in daily life, perhaps hope is a good thing.

    AMERICA'S PRISON SYSTEM: THE PROFITABLE INDUSTRY OF RACISM

    The secret infrastructure of the American judicial legal system is one where African Americans are being systematically, disproportionately incarcerated and the propaganda of psychological warfare is then used to justify their state. The propaganda of negative misrepresentations of African Americans males as the being the prominent face of crime creates a justification for America's disproportionate mistreatment of African American males within the U.S. judicial system. This propaganda creates a false justification for the disproportionately high number of African American males incarcerated and the longer sentences they receive. . These inequalities within the legal system are beneficial to the government in that it stimulates and maintains the stability of the economy in terms of building more prisons and providing more jobs.

    The prison industry in the United States is big business that uses a modern form of inhumane exploitation of African Americans. The U.S. has locked up more people than any other country: a half a million more than China , which has a population five times greater than the U.S. The U.S. holds 25% of the world’s prison population, but only 5% of the world’s people. (CNN, ABC News) The number of inmates includes a disproportionately high percentage of African Americans. The prison industry in the U.S. grew from a population less than 300,000 in 1972 to 2 million in 2000. A significant factor in this growth is privatization of prisons. Private prisons are the biggest business in the prison industry complex. They receive a guaranteed amount of money for each prisoner, independent of what it costs to maintain each one. The secret to low operating cost is having a minimal number of guards for the maximum number of prisoners.

    Ten years ago, there were only five private prisons in the U.S. There are now more than 100. The private contracting of prisoners for work fosters incentives to incarcerate more African Americans. Prison depends on this income. At least 37 states have legalized the contracting of prison labor by private corporations. Corporate stockholders who profit from prison workers lobby for longer sentences in order to expand their work force and profits; the system feeds itself / the prison industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the U.S. , and its investors are on Wall Street. The list includes such companies as IBM, Boeing, Motorola, Microsoft, AT&T, Texas Instrument, Dell, Compaq, Honeywell, Hewlett- Packard, Nortel, Lucent Technologies, Revlon, Macy, Target Stores, Pierre Cardin, and many more. The prison privatization boom began in the 1980s under the Ronald Reagan but reached its height in the 1990s under William Clinton when Wall Street stocks did extremely well. Clinton ’s program for cutting the federal workforce resulted in the Justice Department contracting with private prison corporations.

    The societal and economic factors of racism in which the White elites suppress their lower Black class in order to maximize profits is a very profitable industry. A hidden fact is that the U.S. Government’s revenues from its exploitation of its Black population is actually greater than what it spends on programs for the benefit of African Americans. In the 1980s, Michael Reich developed the segmentation theory of ‘divide and rule,’ which attempts to explain racism from an economic point of view. In this theory, Reich proposed that the ultimate goal in society is to maximize profits. As a result, the exploiter will attempt to use any means to (1) suppress higher wages among the exploited class -- the cheap labor aids the success of the U.S. economy, (2) weaken the bargaining power of the working class, often by attempting to split it along racial lines, (3) promote prejudices, (4) segregate the Black community, (5) ensure that the elite benefit from the creation of stereotype and racial prejudices against the Black community. Reich argues that the major corporations in the U.S. (e.g., Time Warner, Coca Cola, General Motors, etc.) all have at least one member on each other’s corporate boards of directors. As a result, it is in the interest of these members to maximize profits while employing the above devices. The mere fact of these corporate executives sharing economic corporate power combined with the quest for economic profit has now paved the way for economic discrimination.

    In her book, Unequal Justice: A Question of Color; Professor Coramae Richey Mann, an African American professor in criminal justice, writes that the criminal justice system’s goal is to warehouse Blacks and other minorities in prisons and to expand the criminal justice enterprise so as to provide jobs for the majority groups in the law industry (law enforcement officers, probation officers, and lawyers). The implementation of the ‘three strikes you’re out law’ and enhanced sentences for felons found with crack cocaine, rather than its more potent powder form found more often among Whites, are deliberately designed to assure that White dominance is maintained because they are directly aimed at imprisoning Black males thus keeping them from being productive members of the Black community. The high number of Black men incarcerated also directly slows down the Black pregnancy growth rate and this also strips African Americans of political power through the loss of voting rights among our Black felons. The many governmental program implemented for the benefit of African Americans are often done in a manner that fosters humiliation and the sense of obligation among African American toward its government. The fact, however, remains that African Americans, although making up just 12 percent of the national population, contributes billions of dollars each year to the Gross Domestic Product. The profits earned by the U.S. government from its covert exploitation of its Black population far exceed any amount of funds actually spent by the government on social programs benefiting African Americans.

    Clearly, there are many African Americans that may still find this monumental disclosure to be ridiculous. However, it would, in fact, be more ridiculous and, indeed, absurd or a case of collective amnesia to believe that a racial group such as Whites [the most arrogant and rapacious group; possessing an unprecedented history and proclivity for brutal racism; they, who are the most indomitable in history; of which all other races have been either their enemies or victims; they, who alone have taken possession of the physical and moral world and have planned and waged aggressive, unjustifiable wars and have committed crimes against humanity such as genocide and slavery] would just simply give up their innate racist proclivity for dominance so easily. Moreover, exposing the Black Matrix is not at all about inflaming racial hatred and anti White-ism. It is about informing our communities about what is being deliberately done to them as a matter of national interest so that they may stop accepting these hardships and, instead, confront them. For there is neither a struggle nor fight more pressing for African Americans today than the eradication of this real-life Black Matrix that is used to suppress us, confuse us, and turn us against each other.

    IT AMAZES ME HOW THE VERY SAME PEOPLE WHO ADVANCE THE 'IDEA' OF BLACK PEOPLE BEING GODS/GODDESSES ALSO CONTINUALLY ARE COMPLAINING/PROPAGATING CONCERNING RACISM AND/OR WHITE SUPREMACY.

    IF YOU ARE GOD/GODDESS YOU ARE RULER OVER ALL THINGS NOT A SUBJECT TO LOWER BEINGS. IF YOU ARE RULED OVER/BY LOWER BEINGS THEN YOU HAVE NO LEGITIMATE CLAIM TO BEING OF DIVINE NATURE.

    DIVINITES RULE AND ARE NOT RULED BY.

    I humble :qqb018: myself in your presence, with the Swords of Truth and reality, those weapons and tools, that creates Harmony, Order, and Balance, that which is lacking in the Mind-set of most of our people.

    It does not amaze me of how those that live in such make believe world, attempt to criticize that which they do not know nor understand.

    First of all, those of us who aspire to retain our goddess and gods status, we are realist and do not pretend that our condition and status in the world is more than what it is, and the reality of the Black Life is that we have been attacked and robbed of our Divine Mind, and now wear the Human Being Mind, that reality place an obligation upon Black people to Truthfully acknowledge our present condition, and do what is required of us to change it, because our Life condition will not change by osmosis, and those who have brain washed us into believing that all is well with us, and all we have to do is pretend to be as we once were and Lo and behold everything is alright with black folks, how foolish and deceiving we have become.

    Any Afrikan who are peddling such lies in an attempt to mislead and confuse Black people, they are no better than the Human Beings, as they manifest their ways and action, displaying such before the Black world.

    The reality is that black folks are presently a lost and Mental dead people, yet many are living in a Human Being state of denial about who it is that now control the Black Life, and not until we as Black People become Mentally strong enough to acknowledge that fact, then black people will continue to be a Group of hypocrites living a lie about the Divine Truth concerning our True Status in the world and not doing a **** thing about it, especially most of those calling themselves to be of the Black Masculine Gender.

    We who wear the Mind of goddess and gods must portray ourselves as such and the first obligation we have is to the Divine Truth concerning our condition and Life status in the world of evil liars and deceivers.

    When we make claim to be goddess and gods, we do so with reference of whom it is, out of the Loins we Black people did come, which are goddesses and gods, and any Black Divine striving Being know that all who make claim to be goddess and gods, we are doing so as a reconditioning of our Mind so that it will reach the level of its original Divine state, thus will cause us to act and behave entirely as such.

    Only a foolish Afrikan will make claim to have reached the pinnacle of the Divine goddess and gods status, without first doing what is required in order to become a Divine goddess and gods, now I see what Chief Elder mean about most Black people being a pretentious people, pretending to be what we are not.

    I remain steadfast in that which I share with you.

    When others attack the Divine Truth coming from those who speak It, it is done so that we may ascend back into our Divine Mind, a Mind that require that we Think using profound Reasoning and undefile logic.

    I take the attacks against the effort of those who are aspiring to reclaim our Divine Mind to be that coming from the center of Mental confusion coming, so those that comes forth with Divine Truth, being not affected by those that come bearing the profane Lie and is capable of standing fast in the circle of Divinity, you become the True representative of the effort to no longer conform to the Human Being way of life and by doing so, it symbolize our Cosmic Ancestors pinning a Star in our Divine mind/Crown.

    The more intense the opposition comes, bringing that which is against Divine Truth, it serves as the measuring ROD of how fast we who speak Truth is ascending Divinely.

    Now we can either reject, or accept and SOP this Divine gravy of uninhibited Truth, because the Divine seekers do not intend to leave anything for the flies to swarm around, in an attempt to infect with a disease that bring on decay. Osiris and Isis

    First of all, in a pompous and condescending manner you falsely assume that one lives in such a make believe world and attempts "to criticize that which they do not know or understand."

    I DO KNOW and OVER-stand that I am NOT one who -believes in the concept of "white supremacy" nor do I CONSTANTLY whine and complain about the injustices of "white people". For if I was indeed a "God" I would have no reason to recognize, let alone give power to a LESSER BEING.

    Yet, is is you who speak of others living in a "make believe world".
    :haha:

    And you have the audacity to speak of others as foolish!

    Hmm...

    Well, I do KNOW a LOT MORE than you THINK.

    I am not the one here who has been "brainwashed" into giving power to the concept of "white supremacy" nor do I refer to myself as "God" or "Goddess" which are man-made concepts. In fact, can you point to where these terms "God" or "Goddess" were used by the Zulu, Dogon or people of Ta-Shemau?!

    Because you call, name or refer to yourself by a "europeanized" version of AST does not make YOU a "divinity" or of "divine nature".

    Especially when one claims to represent a "movement" which is going no further than "my space".

    By the way...

    WHO is it here in actuality "pretending to be that which they are not?!

    Do you realize that the names "Osiris" and "Isis" are actually "creations" by the white "Romans" who invaded and conquered "Egypt"?!

    THE BLACK MATRIX: The Modern Mental and Social Suppression of African...

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    THE BLACK MATRIX: The Modern Mental and Social Suppression of African American Under National Interest
    © 2006 by Franklin G. Jones
    www.divineblacktrut h.org

    There is neither a struggle, nor fight more pressing for we African Americans than this one, for this is how we are being systematically exploited, suppressed, confused and turned against each other.For almost half a century and as a means of ensuring that White dominance is maintained, the United States government has secretly implemented its largest ever covert operation against its Black population through a campaign of psychological warfare that uses mis-education, false statistics, and negative propaganda spread by media reports. The unrelenting daily assault on the Black psyche corrupts African Americans’ sense of reason and unity thus creating the culture of failure and disparity that now afflicts modern Black America.

    Because this book exposes the hidden, conspiratorial, and profound dimensions of racism that secretly exist at governmental levels in the United States , these are very dangerous waters that I am attempting to navigate. For if this book were to become a bestseller among African Americans, the U.S. Government would most certainly dispute it and initiate a national campaign of spin control and coverage through the national media and the internet with experts lined up to dismiss its premises as a means for protecting its national interest.

    Why? Because this book offers the truth for those who will listen for it; and the truth is that we, African Americans, can no longer survive as a race hanging on to lies. The reality of truth must prevail if we are to be a part of the future. The many problems now facing Black America will not be corrected by implementing outdated strategies of foot marches, speeches, the commemoration of fallen Black martyrs, nor from the preaching of scriptures from any of our religious texts—Christian or Moslem— but instead by initiating the next and more profound stage of the battle for civil rights, thus breaking into newer, previously unexplored territories, thus exposing the fiercest and most lethal system of institutionalized racism now facing Black America.

    Today, the fiercest and most lethal system of racism adversely affecting Black America is neither police brutality, racial profiling, nor is it the Ku Klux Klan. But it is, instead, a modern massive system of covert White racism that is so subtle, pervasive, organized, complete, and proficient that it may be the single most aggravating factor behind the persistent national disparities and culture of failure now afflicting Black America —and yet most African Americans are totally unaware of its existence.

    Since the beginning of recorded history, ruling governmental bodies of nearly every nation have involved themselves in implementing methods to maintain and defend their positions of established power against its minority group. The American Government is in no way an exception to this rule. For it has implemented methods designed to ensure that White dominance is maintained since the time Black people first arrived in America as slaves. During slavery, Blacks were not allowed to be educated, speak among themselves in their native language, or to congregate in large groups [except during their religious services which their master often over saw]. Even after the abolishment of slavery, methods were again implemented to ensure that White dominance was maintained in the form of Jim Crow inequalities that included many unethical methods that denied Blacks the right to vote and that fostered and sanctioned thousands of brutal lynchings of African Americans. Since the methods of the past are no longer morally acceptable, it became necessary for America ’s White governmental elites secretly to create and apply a system more subtle, sophisticated, and socially acceptable in its application and appearance for ensuring that White dominance is maintained. Unlike the brutal system of racism used in the past that caused African Americans to rally together and unify themselves against, this modern system of racism is not easily comprehended by Blacks. It is a method so opaque that many of its Black victims remain largely unaware of it themselves. And while most African Americans may instinctively feel that something is wrong, they cannot, however, express their suspicions and conceptualize them sufficiently so that they and others can comprehend and act to defend themselves against it. It is, in fact, so sophisticated that even very bright African American individuals have little, if any, hope of extricating themselves from its brutal effects. In fact, most Blacks cannot believe that they are being attacked or subdued because it wears the appearance [if any] of being totally self-inflicted by African Americans themselves. Most African Americans have never heard of this method of asserting White racism, therefore many will find it too shocking and stunning to contemplate—neverthe less, it is directly intertwined with the many problems adversely affecting Black America today. This literary work will embark upon a difficult journey that exposes the conspiratorial dimension of racism that secretly exists at governmental levels in the United States . It is a journey that exposes the fundamental core character of the true existing relationship shared between the United States Government and its Black population in a new and troubling light. This journey will be quite difficult and very uncomfortable for many because it requires that African Americans reexamine some of their most basic beliefs and prior assumptions. Moreover, it requires that African Americans overcome a psychologically ingrained “White is right” preferentiality that has been indoctrinated unrelentingly upon the Black psyche and that is rarely moved. Nevertheless, the rewards will be a change from feelings of hopelessness and despair to an awareness of the most urgent issue of our time.

    Today, despite the many equalities gained and opportunities that are now available, America remains largely a nation divided along Black and White racial lines, separate and unequal – one thriving and intact and the other brutally disenfranchised, struggling, and, far too often, Black. In fact, America ’s Black population is far worse off in many ways than ever before. As seen, for example, in the fact that the unprecedented degree of racial pride and unity that was once so movingly demonstrated among African Americans during the 1960's has now today become replaced by widespread and profound division and internalized racism among the race. And although there exist today many wealthy and successful African Americans [greatly due to highly paid athletes and entertainers that benefit the White elites more than they do their own communities] , multigenerational poverty in America still remains largely Black and the masses of African Americans still remain the most devalued by society and the most deliberately exploited and suppressed class in America .

    Today, African Americans are faced with disparities far worse than any generation before now. For never before has the Black suicidal rate ever been higher than it is now. The suicide rate among African American males between the ages of 15 and 19 has risen an astronomical 145% percent. That is eight times higher than the rate of their White counterparts, and it is the highest it's ever been since they have been keeping figures on Blacks. Statistically, Black America appears to be now literally committing cultural self- genocide. The problem is so alarming that the former Surgeon General, David Satcher, describes it as "a crisis of epidemic proportions.”

    Moreover, African Americans appear now more divided than at any other time before in American history. The Black-on-Black homicide rate is higher now than ever before. One study reveals that more Blacks have been killed by Blacks in the last twenty five years than the entire number of Americans solders killed during the Vietnam War. This division is also evident in the collapse of the Black nuclear family. It is estimated that, forty years ago, less than thirty-percent of African Americans homes were headed by a single parent. Today, that number has tragically risen above eighty percent—often creating many emotionally wounded Black children living with single parents.

    Moreover, the psyches of many African Americans youth appear to be now more fragile then their parents before them. For never before have so many Black male youth so openly admired criminal behavior such as thuggery and pimping; and never before have more of our young Black girls so routinely denigrated their gender; nor has the African-American high school drop out rate been higher then it now is; it has now climbed above fifty-one percent.

    Additionally, internalized racism appears to have a greater hold upon the Black psyche now than at any other time before in history for never before have African Americans more favorably referred to themselves as “******s” than they do now; never more than now, upon attaining wealth and success, have a greater number of Blacks married White spouses --deliberately rejecting all potential Black spouses-- preferring to marry White spouses only. And never more than now have even the poorest of Blacks spent a higher percentage of their earnings each year on Europeanizing cosmetic surgeries, bleaching skin creams, chemical hair softeners, and hair weaves. Internalized racism among African Americans is now worse than at any other time before in history.

    What is most particularly unsettling about this internalized racism among African Americans today is, given White America’s brutal history of mistreating Black people, how it is that so many African Americans now suffer from such a massive attack of national amnesia-therefore failing to remember this historical record and have, instead, developed such a profound admiration for Whiteness and contempt for their own Blackness? Also, equally troubling here is, given White America’s historical brutal record of mistreating not only African Americans but also Asian Americans and Native Americans, how is it that they (Whites) are perceived today as being the racial group of the highest moral values and ethics, contrary to the historical record of brutality?

    Given that by all apparent measures racism in the United States has significantly declined, why then is today’s generation of African Americans now plagued with disparities far worse than any generation before now? Clearly, there is something terribly wrong here.

    THE WHITE RESPONSE
    While ignoring all facts that conflict with their racist ideas and accepting no ownership or blame for the persistent economic, social, and other disparities among its Black population that still exist in the face of opportunities that are now available, America’s White social critics have most often responded with a self congratulatory tone that states that, with racism no longer a significant problem in America, clearly the problem stems from an innate racial difference of intelligence or negative pathologies embedded within the Black culture itself. But are these racist premises correct -- that the problem actually stems from something about Black people themselves? Although tragically many Blacks themselves have come to accept them, the emerging evidence does not support the White racist view that the persistent disparities among African American are the result of any purportedly unequal, innate human capacities of the Black race. Such assertions are racist and totally inaccurate because the problem is a contemporary one that appeared only after integration and the abolishment of Jim Crow legalized racism and is not consistent with the past history of African Americans.

    THIS PROBLEM IS A MODERN PHENOMENON

    The White premise that there exists an innate proclivity for division and discursiveness among African Americans is totally inaccurate because this problem is a modern phenomenon that is not consistent with the history of African Americans. While perhaps difficult to believe today, Black unity [Umoja] was, historically, the cornerstone of the African American community and was a crucial factor in the survival of African Americans for more than four-hundred years of White racial oppression. It is credited for the success of the Underground Railroad system that secretly led to the escape of hundreds of African slaves to the north.

    Black unity and cohesion also attributed to the survival of millions of African Americans not only during slavery, but also during the aftermath of brutal Jim Crow era lynchings and through the financially crippling years of the United States great depression era. Moreover, Black unity was the most significant factor in the success of the 1960's civil right movement; for the immense degree of unity among African Americans then was made evident by its massive organization and mobilizations of mass bus boycotts, marches, freedom riders, and sit ins that were nonviolently conducted through the unified protest of civil disobedience. It was these methods of civil disobedience that gave the world the many images of African Americans being violently brutalized by White attackers while not responding to the immense violence with violence themselves; therefore touching the heart and conscious of many and gaining both national and global support that eventually led to America abandoning its usage of open, blatant and legalized forms of Jim Crow racism. The demonstrated degree of unity and structure among African Americans displayed then was extraordinary and arguably remains still unrivaled by any other group in the history of America .

    And in regards to the prevalence of Black behavior of self hatred commonly displayed today, clearly this is a modern problem for the display of Black ethnic pride was much more prevalent in the 1960's. For then the favorable fashion was the dashiki and the preferred hair style was the Afro and corn rows; and the popular themes then were "Black is Beautiful” and being "Black and Proud.” Clearly, these noted facts when considered together, the profound loss of racial pride and the self hatred displayed today among many African Americans, is a modern phenomenon.

    What is more, the assertion that the academic failures and profound loss of scholastic motivation among African American students stem from an innate racial difference of intelligence is also totally inaccurate. This problem is also a modern one that happened after integration. For prior to the 1954 Supreme Court decision in Brown V. Board of Education of Topeka and despite being wrought by Jim Crow racial oppression, inequalities, indignities, and having to attend poorly funded schools, the Black illiteracy that was 30% in 1919 had dropped to less then 7% by 1955.

    It had not only almost disappeared in the South, but in some areas it was less than White illiteracy as in then New York . In 1950, Black colleges had a total of 71,000 students, and 553 African Americans had a Doctorate Degree. The intellectual growth of African Americans was extraordinary. African American contributions to advancement in the field of science, agriculture, medical and domestic inventions during and following reconstruction were remarkably astounding. This was made most evident by the extremely high number of patent applications submitted by African Americans inventors to the U.S. Patent office --which is a miraculous feat especially under such oppressive conditions and coming so shortly after slavery. The profound loss of educational motivation and aspiration among so many African American students today is also a modern phenomenon that is inconsistent with the past history of African Americans. So what then has happened to the unrivaled racial pride, unity and cohesion, and ambitious perseverance that were once so unprecedented and so movingly demonstrated among African?

    Many African American psychologists have formed the consensus view that the problem stems from historical racial brutality and past prejudices that were indoctrinated upon the minds of our slave ancestors that is being subconsciously regenerated down generational lines by cultural pathologies of self contempt embedded within the Black psyche. (Akbar, Hilliard, Nobles,etc.. ) A brutal slave indoctrination process commonly referred to as the Willie Lynch method of slave indoctrination is typical in describing the process of indoctrination. However, while there clearly are many behaviors that exist now among African Americans today that can be directly traced back to slavery, these noted problems are now worse today than forty years ago. Therefore, this historical mortification/ indoctrination process upon our slave ancestors cannot be fully blamed for the problem. There has to be another explanation of why the problem is now worse than ever before. For the problem has become more prevalent within the last half century.

    What then has happened to the once unprecedented Black unity and cohesion, educational aspiration and racial pride that was once so prevalent among many African Americans? Do we continue to accept the easy and convenient answer that Black unity, cohesion, and educational aspiration merely disintegrated when integration and other opportunities became available?

    In his last public and arguably most famous speech entitled “The Mountain Top” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., said [paraphrasing] that although he himself may not make it to the promise land [of equality for all Americans] that we as a nation nevertheless will get to the promise land. Many Americans today believe that Dr. King’s dream has been fully realized in America ; therefore Black failure to achieve now is totally the fault of Blacks alone. But has Dr. King’s dream been fully realized in America , or are we all the victims of an elaborate illusion that equality now exists for all Americans? The illusion of opportunity and change has been so firmly established upon the national consciousness that to suggest that the noted problems among America ’s Black communities today stem from White racism has become almost laughable.

    Today, it is inevitable that if anyone were to now blame the many disparities among African Americans on White racism that they would be immediately accused of playing the inevitable race card and of being professional peddlers of victim-hood that somehow enjoy the moral advantage that their victim-hood gives them to overstate their case, to absolve themselves from all responsibility. Certainly, there are those Blacks that have wrongly peddled victim-hood and blame of Whites, however, today this scenario of the Black victim peddler is deliberately over stated and perpetuated within the American society, thus creating immense disdain for these Black accusers, even from fellow Blacks themselves. This is being deliberately done to prevent us from realizing that there actually does exist a modern deliberate system of racism implemented by America ’s White governmental elites with the underlying objective of maintaining White dominance.

    Given America 's White dominance, it should come as no surprise that the prevailing sentiment in the U.S. has now become that race is no longer a significant factor in the American society and that therefore racism can no longer be blamed for the despairing state of Black America. However, to find the true answers to the persistent despairing problems among the African-American communities one must not be deterred, but instead be willing to persevere beyond White indifference, ridicule, mockery, disapproval, and/or accusations of peddling victim-hood for they are now deliberately employed as tools of deterrence to keep Black America from finding the truth.

    The intent of this text is to demonstrate, unequivocally, that the United States government’s practices of economically exploiting and suppressing its Black population was actually never truly abandoned, but instead reincarnated into a far more sophisticated method. Moreover, that the source of the intensification of internalized racism, loss of motivation, school failure, profound division, and present confused outlook now so prevalent among so many African Americans today are in fact directly attributed to this modern deliberate system of covert White racism.

    Although today most African Americans do not experience racism the way their parents experienced it, they do, however, still experience White racism. White racism in the U.S. is still a current and devastating problem that now prevails with sophistication and is employed more covertly and more proficiently than ever before. The decline of the blatant, overt racism used in the United States to suppress African Americans up until the 1960's coincided with the implementation of a better disguised, more intensified, sophisticated, and more covert method of White racism more fitting for the times. The reincarnation of methods of suppressing sub-groups is not at all uncommon. In examining the records of history, we often find that, among those mighty empires which were brutal, greedy, and racist, those behaviors did not decay quickly even after the fall of empire. These patterns of racism where often reincarnated into forms more acceptable to the changing times.

    This practice of reinventing newer forms of institutionalized racism was already seen in the United States when, after the abolishment of slavery, the evil of racism was reincarnated into Jim Crow inequalities that where maintained by regional authorities and condoned by the U.S. Government. This atrocious American pattern of reincarnating its methods, of exploiting and suppressing its Black population to maintain its White dominance secretly, continues in the 21 century. Moreover, the modern method used in today’s world is so complete and proficient that it is intricately intertwined with the many despairing conditions now plaguing many of America’s Black communities, including delinquency, school failure, crime, profound self hatred and division, and also the national collapse of the Black nuclear family.

    White America's methods of institutionalized racism were secretly modified into a more contemporary and stealthy design that provides a more socially acceptable means to control the growth and advancement of its African American population. Unlike the blatant brutal method of racism used in the past in the United States , today’s methods are very sophisticated and unlike anything ever before faced by African Americans. Its methods are so well fortified and so complete until Blacks themselves are labeled “racist” by other Blacks for merely calling attention to it. Furthermore, it is so enthralling and sophisticated that it misleads Blacks to believe that they are, themselves, their own worst enemies, therefore engendering an internalized aberration of self contempt that pulverizes Black unity and halts Black upward mobility. It is also so fundamentally detrimental to the Black human condition and psyche that it may even affect the extent to which many African Americans realize their full human potential.

    Moreover, this system of racism is so well fortified and so complete that many African Americans will even disregard this disclosure of its existence as being merely nonsense and preposterously inconceivable. In fact, this method of racism is so proficient at damaging the Black self perception that tragically it has become easier for many Blacks to accept the derogatory premise that the noted problems stem from innate inadequacies within themselves rather than that of being the case of a modernized method of institutionalized racism being implemented at governmental levels.

    Many African Americans, in defending the U.S. Government, will adamantly present the question of why would the U.S. government find it a necessity to implement such a racist scheme? This is because the image that has been firmly established upon the consciousness of Black America, in regards to the U.S. Government, are those of the U.S. government sending troops to Little Rock, Arkansas to safely escort Black students to attend schools or that of the Northern Union soldiers fighting and dying against the Confederate army to free the slaves, and of the many social programs that the federal Government has implemented towards the benefit of African Americans. However, while these undertakings by the U.S. government collectively deserve our appreciation and respect, they do not accurately provide the full picture revealing the true or entire relationship shared between the U.S. Government and its Black population. These favorable stories and events reflect only what the U.S. Government wants its African Americans population to remember and are not historically accurate at reflecting or determining the true past relationship or the underlying present existing relationship between African Americans and the U.S. Government.

    From slavery to the present, African Americans have undeniably borne an unprecedented amount of suffering and mistreatment by the U.S. government because of their race. However, so many have forgotten or repressed so much of these maltreatments and have, instead, come to accept the favorable-but- false perpetuated White persona that represents everything that White people never were -- and still are not -- in place of the truth, thus engendering a sort of psychologically induced coma concerning their own Black holocaust. Because most African Americans lack access to an educational system and media reports that gives them accurate information, both historical and present, reflecting the African American relationship with the U.S. Government, most are totally oblivious to the true fundamental core character of this existing relationship.

    To truly find the truth behind the baffling phenomenon of disparities plaguing America ’s Black communities, it is necessary to first learn the true fundamental core character of the American society as it relates to African Americans. Therefore, a recapitulation of the suppressed, forgotten, and repressed offenses by the U.S. Government against its Black population is extremely necessary to build up a more accurate picture of the forgotten relationship between African Americans and the U.S. government-- and so that we may learn what it reveals. Obtaining a more accurate perception of the true core relationship shared between the U.S. government and its Black population requires a thorough reexamination of those many now forgotten past unitary racist actions committed by the U.S. Government against the advancement and interests of its African American population. According to Sigmund Freud, recognition of repressed material is very valuable because it deprives the negative material of its persistent strength.

    There is perhaps no place better to begin this recapitulation than an examination of the American presidents. For although some presidents endorsed policy measures supportive of equal treatment of people, their public and private comments throughout history verifies that, despite the improvement in civil rights legislation and policies made during each of their administrations, the presidents still maintained and displayed negative disdain towards it Black population.

    Such an example was that of president Abraham Lincoln, for although he is revered by White historians as the great White emancipator of the African slaves, President Abraham Lincoln in 1857 had urged legislatures to appropriate money for colonization in order to remove free Blacks from the United States to prevent miscegenation [mixing of the race] for he believed and openly stated that Blacks and Whites were too different to live together. He was assassinated before he could carry out his plan.

    And although now portrayed as a romantic figure because of his affairs with African female slaves, President Thomas Jefferson nevertheless stated that "the negroes are equal to Whites only in the point of memory, but much inferior in general reasoning ability, and lack in imagination and their grief’s are transient."

    And although President Truman issued executive orders that ended segregation in the military, his reference to Blacks as "pigs" and “******s” continued long thereafter (Hunt, 1987, p.163) suggesting that he had not abandoned his racist perceptions about African Americans. This was also similar of President Lyndon B. Johnson who, although engineering much of the 1960's Civil rights legislation, did not –according to biographer C. Dale, 1991 pages 519-520 – expunge the word “******” from his vocabulary even after becoming president .

    Furthermore, according to historians Blanche Wiesen Cook- (1981, p.173), President Dwight Eisenhower sympathized with southern anxieties about the court's decision in Brown vs. Board of education. These comments made by each of these presidents supports the premise that the improvement in civil rights legislation and policies developments in the United States was not born of White redemption or changes of their hearts and perceptions towards its negro population, but instead made due to the changing of times and the recognition of volatility of racial conflict in American society.

    A statement perhaps best reflecting the collective attitudes and ideologies of America 's founding White elites was one written by a popular Michigan editor who in 1862 wrote that "this government was made for the benefit of the White race and not the Negro." He further wrote that, "the negroes were and always had been a distinct group in the U.S. in that the majority of them were held in a system of bondage, while those fortunate enough to escape such fate lived as un-welcomed guests in a White society.” Also Benjamin Franklin, one of America 's most beloved and respected founding fathers, concurred with the preceding statement saying that he regretted that the number of "purely White race" people in the world was proportionately very small. Because he feared that the inferior race, particularly including Blacks, threatened their White existence.

    Many influential and successful African Americans -- they that have become complacent and blinded by their own individual success -- will defend the position that these sentiments are merely outdated words of a forgotten American segment whose ideology has long since been overcome as a nation, however, this text will unequivocally demonstrate that, while this type of rhetoric of racism is no longer commonly overtly spoken, its ideology and practices are very much still a part of the fiber of the U.S. government today.
    For although the United States Government portrays itself as the leading ethical and moral authority of the world and professes equal rights for all American citizens, its oldest and most important objective has always been an unyielding commitment towards the preservation of its White dominance. That objective has always directly correlated with the necessity to suppress the advancement and growth of its Black population because, if the U.S. government treated its Black population in a manner which does not promote its interest of maintaining White dominance and control, it would render the U.S. Government diametrically in opposition to itself; therefore, it secretly uses every conceivable means and opportunity to suppress its Black population, even those that trample upon its own stated ethical values.

    Evidence of this anti Black governmental objective was first brutally made apparent at the end of the Civil War when President Abraham Lincoln, after having acknowledged that the contributive efforts of the thousands of Black Americans that voluntarily enlisted into the Union Army as being a significant factor for the victory attained by the North, he then ordered his union army to simply fold up their tents and return home leaving the newly freed slaves to restore their shattered lives left unhealed after centuries of slavery, severely vulnerable to their former masters that where forced to retire their slave driving business. The U.S. federal government left those bitter former slave masters to conduct racial matters anyway they saw fit. This abandonment led to the southern states reinventing its method of suppressing African Americans by implementing Jim Crow legalized segregation laws that not only continued the denigration and suppression of African Americans, but also created an environment that promoted and sanctioned the brutal atrocious lynching's, beatings and mutilations of thousands of African Americans. More then 5,000 lynching's [including northern states] where documented between reconstruction and the late 1960s. .

    In the face of such brutal atrocities committed against African Americans -- and although thousands of African Americans had participated in not only the Civil War, but also subsequently in two world wars in defense of America, and despite the many episodes of lurid publicity of Black's degradation and brutal murders in the South and the well publicized civil rights demonstrations --, the attention of the U.S. federal government did not focus on the civil rights abuse of Blacks, but instead condoned these atrocities for more than one-hundred years. The federal government did not intervene until the 1960's Civil Rights Movement's protest through civil disobedience strategies brought global attention to the suffering of African American, and even still it was only after White supporters where killed that the U.S. government actually acknowledged the condition of the southern Blacks and acted.

    The U.S. government, not only sanctioned brutal injustices and racist policies implemented against the advancement of African Americans in the South but also, legalized racist policies nationally against the advancement of African Americans. In 1896, the United States Supreme Court ruled on Plessey vs. Ferguson , a law suit challenging the legality of Whites-only train cars in New Orleans that the provision of separate but equal facilities for Blacks was not a violation of the fourteenth amendment. This decision allowed states to segregate not only transportation, but also parks, swimming pools, beaches, food services, theatre, health facilities and schools, virtually every area of public life for the next half a century until the 1954 ruling of Brown v. the Board of education.

    The American Government, while professing equality for all of her citizens, in fact uses every conceivable means to seal or maintain its White dominance and advantage -- especially with regards to its African American population. No place is this fact made more evident than when examining the United States Government’s long history of implementing suppressive tactics against African American civil right leaders and their organizations for merely pursuing the full measures and rights of citizenship for all African Americans.

    Within a true democracy, the citizens have a right, if not a duty to speak out when the government is wrong in action or policy. However, as seen throughout America 's history, regardless of which position peacefully taken by African Americans in their plight of obtaining even the basic of equality of citizenship, the American government has always deemed it a threat to its national interest. Such is seen wherein Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., for his merely seeking equality for African Americans, the then FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover deemed it a threat to national interest. And with support of the United States Attorney General Bobby Kennedy, and the acknowledgement of his brother President John F. Kennedy, Mr. Hoover ordered the wire tapping and surveillance of Dr. King and denied him many numbers of foundation grants and public speaking engagements. Furthermore, the Government, in an effort to influence control of Dr. King, threatened to discredit him by making public the information obtained by their surveillances. Dr. King, nevertheless, maintained his position and momentum and was subsequently murdered shortly thereafter. Ironically, the United States Government also implemented similar strategies against Malcolm X, for seeking, contrary to Dr. King’s strategy, to segregate from Whites. There were similar deterrent strategies implemented by the U.S. government against Marcus Garvey for advocating a return to Africa . What is being demonstrated here is that regardless of which position peacefully taken as law-biding advocates for change by African Americans these actions where always deemed as a threat to America’s national interest by its government.
    Furthermore, these actions where neither isolated nor uncommon for the U.S. government did not only target the famous and more influential African Americans leaders, but also targeted many minor civil rights leaders at the grass root levels. Nor did the U.S. government limit its activities to just wire-tapping and surveillances, but also implemented direct campaigns of harassment to dismantle and demobilize many promising projects intended to improve the lives of African Americans. One such example was when a civil rights worker named Donald Jackson, also the victim of government covert operations of influence, wherein the government used forged correspondence causing him to abandon a promising project in Jackson, Mississippi. Mr. Jackson had foundation grants to form Black economic cooperatives and open a Black and Proud school for dropouts. He was also a student organizer at the nearby Tougaloo College. In the winter of 1969, after an extended campaign of FBI and police harassment, Mr. Jackson received a letter, purportedly from the Tougaloo College Defense Committee which directed that he cease his political activities immediately and that, if he did not heed their diplomatic and well-thought- out warning, the committee would consider taking measures "which would have a more direct effect and which would not be as cordial as this note.” Mr. Jackson and his wife left. Only years later did they learn it was not the Tougaloo students, but the FBI covert operators who had driven them out. The monitoring and surveillance of African American organizations is an ongoing practice that is continued even today by the United States Government.

    The list of monitored organizations may have included or continue to include the following: The Black Muslims, The New Black Panther Party, Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, Congress of Racial Equality, Uhuru Movement, Group On Advanced Leadership, Freedom Now Party, United Black Nationalist of America, The New Pan- American Movement, Southern Christian Leadership Conference, The National Urban League, The National Association For the Advancement of Colored People, and the Committee on Racial and Religious Progress.

    The U.S. Government’s unyielding determination for maintaining its White dominance is so profound that it even breaches ethical boundaries under the pretext of national interest. Here is a story that originally appeared in Haber's nationally syndicated column on May 19, 1970. It is a story wherein the FBI used false media stories against a White pregnant civil rights activist that ended tragically. The FBI targeted Jean Seberg a White married film star active in the anti-racist cause, therefore leaked a false story anonymously to columnist Joyce Haber of the Los Angeles Times that claimed that Jean Seberg was pregnant by a prominent Black leader. This governmental strategy subsequently resulted in a stressed induced still birth and the nervous breakdown and suicide of Mrs. Seberg. Her husband sued the FBI as responsible for the stress from this attack upon the victim's character. Perhaps what is most profound in this case is that she was a White woman merely active in the "anti racist cause" and yet she was also deemed as a threat to America ’s national interest and targeted.

    The U.S. Government's desire to suppress the advancement of its Black population was also made evident during the integration of its public schools, wherein it flagrantly, wrongfully integrated Black students into an educational system where they are taught only to admire the accomplishment of Whites and to despise Africans as being non contributors of civilization. The new education system failed to provide Black students the same essential racially affirming curriculum of themselves to base their capabilities and potentials upon as it so routinely deemed it a necessity to provide for its White students-thus cutting off their aspirations of Black children at its roots. No group of children can adequately academically compete with other students while being educated to respect the accomplishments of every other racial group except themselves. And then shamefully the U.S. Education Secretary and White House officials dare to express surprise when Black students actively resist learning or that their will or ability to learn diminishes given such a mortifying educational setting. For most African Americans their schools are the first place where they learn just how little they're valued in America .

    When it comes to its African Americans population, gross transgressions against the constitution and human rights are secretly deemed as acceptable. The U.S. Government’s unyielding determination for maintaining its White dominance not only breaches ethical lines, but also breaches its own constitutional laws and the very human rights of its Black population. As witnessed in the 1980's when the CIA pushed drugs into the Black communities of Los Angeles-thus poisoning its African American communities by the proliferation of drugs and high powered weaponry. The evidence shows that, for nearly 10 years, a Central Intelligence Agency operation sold crack cocaine by the ton along with sophisticated assault weapons to two Los Angeles youth gangs, the Cripps and the Bloods, and then ignited a blood bath of violence between them. These drugs and weaponry were then disseminated to many African Americans communities throughout the United States destroying the lives of millions of African Americans while stimulating the economy through the prison industry. Black America has never fully recovered from this governmental attack.

    The U.S. Government's determination to maintain its White dominance knows no limit. This fact was again made evident when for forty years between 1932 and 1972, the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) conducted dangerous syphilis experiment on four hundred Black men. These men where unknowingly infected by the U.S. Government with syphilis [to believe that such a large number of Black share croppers were all naturally infected is ridiculously absurd] and then told that they were being treated for "bad blood." Their doctors, hired by the government, had no intention of curing them of syphilis at all. These men were deliberately left to degenerate painfully under the ravishes of the disease – with symptoms including blindness, tumors, paralysis, insanity and then death -- to allow the U.S. Government to collect the needed data from their autopsies. Although this story was released by an Associated Press reporter, Jean Heller, on July 25, 1972, it still did not get an acknowledgment or apology from the U.S Government for yet another 25 more years when, on May 16, 1997, President Clinton apologized to the eight remaining survivors.

    These forgotten and suppressed records of history substantiate clearly, not only that the U.S. Government possesses an unyielding determination for maintaining its White dominance but also, that it will use every-conceivable means imaginable to meet this national objective. Given such astounding evidence of this fact, it is a wonder that more African Americans have not questioned the convenient targeting of America's AIDS epidemic hitting hardest its two most discriminated groups-- its Gay and Black populations. Why [in January 2000] did President Clinton officially assigned the National Security Council and the Central Intelligence Agency to supervise the U.S. Governments global campaign against AIDS ? These agencies seem unqualified to fight disease. Why weren’t the U.S. public health service and Center for Disease control given the task? Although the constant degradation of Blacks in the media makes such a premise easier to accept, are we really to believe that the millions of African Americans today infected by the HIV and AIDS virus are all practicing homosexuals or IV drug users? Or is it more likely that they are victims of a virus made in a governmental medical lab used as a political ethnic weapon to maintain White dominance?

    Difficult as it may be for some to accept, however, America 's own history of governmental strategies implemented against the better interest of African Americans unequivocally confirms that the U.S. government does possess an interest in suppressing the advancements and interests of its Black population. Given such overwhelming historical evidence demonstrating this hypothesis, it would be extremely naive to believe otherwise. Now having realized this fact about the U.S. Government, should we, African Americans, not question a sea of many White [and now also Black] governmental officials who urge us to close our eyes and trust them despite an unprecedented history to the contrary?

    The intention here is to demonstrate that, despite the many substantial gains made today by African Americans in the field of entertainment, education, and politics, the U.S. Government’s unyielding determination to maintain its White dominance by implementing methods of suppressing its Black population has not been abandoned, but rather that it has been more sophisticatedly reincarnated. Today, the masses of African Americans remain still the largest, most racially devalued and most deliberately exploited and suppressed class in America , only now the methods have changed. The methods now used by the U.S. Government avoid the conventional, blatant, now morally unacceptable methods used in the past.

    Today, for the most part, the manner in which African Americans confront White racism is very outdated. In fact, it may be compared to the example of an old prize fighter shadow boxing in the corner of a ring long after, and totally unaware that, his opponent has moved behind him now pulverizing him from the rear, or that of a matador in a bull fight waving his red cape in the wind attempting to taunt the bull not realizing that the bull has already gouged out his heart. These examples, although very brutal, are appropriate in describing how Black America is faring against today’s modern system of White racism. Today, unfortunately, whenever the topic of racism is discussed among African Americans, this implies (for most) the images of police brutality, consumer profiling, driving while Black, and, of course, the Ku Klux Klan and other similar White anti-Black organizations. While these are all serious elements of institutionalized racism that collectively deserve our attention, these noted racist elements are neither the most prevalent nor the most detrimental form of racism faced by African Americans today.

    The most prevalent and lethal system of racism assaulting African Americans today is now applied through the government’s proven method of Covert Counterintelligence Program [ COINTELPRO]: A misnomer for Domestic Covert Actions. For almost half a century now-- because the blatant methods of racism used and condoned in the past are no longer morally and socially acceptable -- the U.S. Government has implemented a far more sophisticated method of assuring that its White dominance is maintained through the usage of COINTELPRO Psychological Warfare. By doing so, they acquired a far more insidious and covert method of maintaining White dominance that exists behind a clever shroud of secrecy and deceit — for it is in this way that the evils of racism thrive best -- when its victims do not recognize the evil. A method that covertly uses mis-education and false propaganda media reports that equates a psychological warfare that deliberately conspires to severely reduce African America’s upward mobility by corrupting them of unity, reason, and common sense, deliberately soliciting the disparity that has now become modern Black America.

    Here is a simplified analogy of how this is being done to America ’s Black population. Let us say, for example, that a group of people was aboard their own massive ship and that their ship was being shadowed by another neighboring ship, a neighboring ship that was constantly broadcasting derogatory messages to the first group that their ship was lesser, smaller, not seaworthy or perhaps slowly sinking or that their crew was incompetent or was planning a mutiny. With time, the group receiving the negative messages, being unable to refute or to confirm these derogatory messages and deficiencies will grow weary and paranoid of the negative messages and will eventually comes to accept these negative assessments of themselves. The perception created by the taunting now unconsciously influences how the taunted group perceives themselves, subsequently causing them to become distrustful of themselves, doubting themselves, hating themselves and, eventually, fighting among themselves. The taunted group may even become so besieged by deep feelings of inadequacy that they may even jump into the sea and attempt to swim towards the taunting ship now believing it to be superior to their own boat even if their own ship was in fact better.

    This concept of warfare uses psychology as the decisive factor in the outcome. The basis of the concept is that the human being's most critical aspect is the mind. This science of psychology works by affecting the unconscious mind through deception. Its weapon is the message that it carries and the way this message affects the recipients in terms of their behavior. Within a real world setting, this is implemented against African Americans through U.S. governmental agencies that leak false derogatory press releases, documentaries, and media information concerning its Black population that are designed to perpetuate and frame the myth of Whites’ racial, moral, and ethical superiority over its Black population. Its collaborators in the news media, which either knowingly or unknowingly carry the false information or create their own false information through news releases in magazine articles, radio, and television, work to demoralize, discourage, berate, subjugate, and or dismantle the Black population. It insinuates that America would be a better society as a whole if African Americans were gone, thus psychologically changing the root problem of racism in America to be due to Black’s behavior rather than White’s proclivity for racism.

    This perversion of reality, shifting the blame, and role reversal of the problem of racism to be the fault of African Americans, is perpetuated unrelentingly everywhere through press releases, pamphlets, radio, newspaper, and magazine articles and television. The weapon is not the way it is sent, but the messages that it carries and how the messages affect the recipient and influence society. This campaign engenders a shift of victimization that fosters distorted perceptions and increasingly prejudiced and acrimonious beliefs about its African American population that creates a consensual environment that facilitates the easier exploitation and suppression of Black America. [For when contempt of Blacks appears to be justifiable, it is the fiercest and most effective type of racism because its witnesses, bystanders, and jurors will sit by idly allowing African Americans to be brutally mistreated under the belief that it is justified.]

    Although this may sound a bit like bad science fiction, Psychological Warfare is a real and well-proven technology that exceeds the territorial limits of conventional warfare to penetrate the proposed target. This type of psychological warfare has been used by the military since World War II. The British Special Operation Executives (SOE) was pioneering this form of propaganda during the Second World War. The British Government, between1930- 1940, conducted psychological warfare against Germany, by putting together a massive department staffed by many former journalists that conducted secret journalism and planted favorable stories in the world's press. Generally using friendly newspapers editors, but also using bribery to get pro-allied stories in print, British pilots also dropped propaganda leaflets and spread rumors concerning Germany 's relations with France and other aspects of the war.

    An example of the usage of psychological warfare within a military setting may be seen in the deployment of massive fleets of U.S. Naval battle carriers to the Mediterranean Sea to foster the psychological response of fear or intimidation from the neighboring countries. Psychological warfare may also be used to perpetuate the myths of America 's military dominance over its enemies thus adversely affecting their moral and motivation to fight back. Such is seen where perhaps a company of enemy soldiers are well fortified within their trenches well prepared for the anticipated incoming American military assault. The U.S military may respond to this enemy’s high state of combat preparedness by using pilots to fly over their positions dropping propaganda leaflets spreading rumors and false information concerning the enemy’s vulnerabilities or giving them an exaggerated number of the incoming American troops. The targets here are the minds of the enemy troops and the objective is to deeply affect their morale and motivation to fight back. Under this psychological operation of influence, the enemy troops may surrender at the first sight of the approaching American troops without the Americans having fired a single shot. A popular motto among the users of these covert operations is "Capture their minds, and their hearts and souls will follow." For once their minds are reached, they're defeated without bullets. Used in all aspects of war, the effectiveness of psychological warfare is limited only by the ingenuity of the commanders using it.

    The uses to which psychological warfare can be applied are virtually unlimited. For the U.S. Government also uses psychological operations to assist in the sales of arms and weaponry. The United States Government is the world’s largest arms dealer, and to ensure that these sales continue, it often resorts to the unethical usage of psychological operations. Here is an example of how such an implementation may be done. Let us say, for example, that an African kingdom that has purchased arms in the past from the U.S. Government has now decided that there no longer exists any threat from its neighboring kingdoms and therefore elects to discontinue their spending of millions of dollars on unneeded weaponry. The U.S. Government may respond to this refusal to continue buying their arms by themselves creating a threat of imminent war between the targeted kingdom and its neighboring African kingdoms. This would be done by employing Special Forces and other types of espionage specialist to plant lies and rumors of war thus igniting conflict and distrust between the targeted African kingdom and its neighboring kingdoms which often results in both empires now buying arms from the U.S. Government.

    Although the usage of psychological warfare began within a military setting, it was eventually realized by governmental and societal elites that this method of psychological warfare could be useful for totally controlling society. Therefore, psychological warfare technology evolved from its military usage against foreign enemies to being used to control society domestically. Today, the U.S. government, like many other developed nations, conducts planned campaigns of extensive strategic psychological operations through the national media to influence the perception and climate of the nation towards the attainment of its governmental objectives. Participating federal agencies may include the National Security Council, The Office of Strategic Council, The Central Intelligence Agency, and The Federal Bureau of Investigations. However, when it is executed domestically it is more often commonly referred to by governmental and military officials as a psychological operations [PSYOPs] rather than Psychological Warfare.

    Psychological warfare can also be used to create a brazen deception in order to create a pretext for war with the true intent of achieving global geo-political objectives. This is where governmental agents secretly create or allow terrorism in the United States for the purpose of mobilizing public opinion in favor of the government’s objectives. Many people have compared this example to those actions taken by the U.S. government after the September 11, 2001 attack on America wherein several terrorists high-jacked four American commercial air liners and crashed them into strategic targets in Washington , D.C. and New York , NY . For although all ties to the terrorist attack pointed towards Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia and given that all the historic evidence showed that Saddam Hussein was a vigorous arch enemy of Al Qaeda, President Bush, in his official speech to the nation responding to the atrocious attack, redirected the nation's attentions towards Iraq as a means of fighting the terrorism of Al Qaeda. This strategic operation of influence gained the U.S Government the support of the nation that it needed to send thousands of its service members to war under the pretext of being a war on terrorism, while in fact it successfully met the U.S. objective of what appears to have been more about securing its interest in the Iraq oil wells. The targets, then, were the minds of the entire American population, our military troops and the civilian population. [For those readers that find this premise too difficult to accept, I strongly suggest that you read a 1962 governmental document now unclassified and provided under the freedom of information act entitled “Operation North Woods” documenting a governmental plan to take a civilian aircraft, replace it with an automatic unmanned aircraft, then shoot it down and blame the incident on Cuba in order to go to war.]

    The preceding example of U.S. government usage of psychological warfare to influence the nation is only a single act among a long list of many conducted by the U.S. Government. Every act of the government has a psychological impact, and it is ongoing from President Bush's media coverage stunt where he landed upon a U.S. Naval battle carrier dressed as a pilot, to the U.S. soldiers pulling down the statue of Saddam Hussein in Iraq , to the staged rescue of Jessica Lynch. These strategies are all part of the sophisticated system of psychological warfare, and they are on-going, all around us, all of the time.

    The ability to influence the nation in mass using psychological operations through the national media is highly effective because the media itself is very powerful in terms of its influence. For the media helps shape our views of the world, what we consider to be good or bad, and also forges our deepest values, identities, and our sense of what it means, for example, to be male or female. These facts, combined with those studies showing that the average American watches 18 hundred hours of television each year, affirm that there is a great inclination for Americans to be affected by psychological operations conducted through the national media.

    The reason psychological warfare is so unknown to most Americans is because its very nature is to be covert, and because it is not the stuff of adventure and the excitement of war that films or novels portray. However, psychological warfare is a real, sound, and proven governmental technology that has been used by the U.S. Government for many decades, and its usage is ongoing even now. For as recently as July 2004, a story was reported by the New York Times that the Defense Department had paid the Rendon Group, a Washington-based international consulting firm, $100,000 per month to help the Office of Strategic Information (OSI) with a broad campaign that would include negative propaganda or disinformation. The report stated that the OSI was established to spread positive messages about the war on terrorism, but it would also use disinformation and misinformation to mislead friends and foe alike. The report went on to say that the office of Strategic Influence had been set up to disseminate truthful information openly but also to spread what senior pentagon officials called "the Blackest of Black programs.” The organization works on ways to influence and mislead the media abroad and also domestically in America, such as spreading positive messages about the war on terrorism or perpetuating disinformation through its frequent collusion with news media personnel to publish false and distorted material at the government's behest.

    The U.S. Government’s methods for implementing domestic psychological warfare also include the ability to suppress particular targeted groups. This is seen when governmental agencies leak false, derogatory press releases, documentaries, and media information to its collaborators in the news media which the media knowingly or unknowingly carry as its own and submit the false information through news releases and in magazine articles, radio, and television to demoralize, discourage, subjugate, and or dismantle the targeted groups. This method of psychological operation is disseminated through face-to-face communication or television, audio media, newspaper, books, and magazine. The weapon is not in the media used, but the message that it carries and how the messages affect the recipient. This method of psychological operation works by, first, simply learning everything about the targeted group, their beliefs, likes, dislikes, strengths, and vulnerabilities. Once you know what motivates your target, you are ready to begin psychological operations against them.

    We have completed a review of the U.S. government's history and methods of applying psychological operations of influence, most particularly its method of utilizing the national media to disseminate domestic psychological operations to suppress targeted groups. The intention is to now show in a instructive manner rather than an accusatory manner that, since the means of economic and political control used in the past under the pretext of national interest are no longer morally and socially acceptable, the U.S. governmental and societal capitalist elites have modified their methods of exploiting and suppressing its Black population into a form more socially acceptable in contemporary times: psychological warfare operations.

    THE RISE OF THE BLACK MATRIX
    How, why, and when was this developed and coordinated? During the 1960’s, America ’s brutal racial mistreatment of African Americans created much unrest and discord. Wide-spread violence ensued which increasingly placed the peace and stability of the nation in dire jeopardy. Demonstrations of unrest and rioting became a part of the familiar scene. This violence resulted in the decline of national stability and loss of lives and property that cost the nation and taxpayers millions of dollars. These factors, combined with the rapidly tarnishing American global image, led the U.S. Government’s agents of White supremacy to quickly reform their techniques of institutionalized racism. The problem led the then president, Lyndon B Johnson, ordering that a commission be formed, later known as the Kerner Commission, to investigate and prescribe the cure for the 1960’s race riots and to make recommendations. The Commission concluded that blatant White racism was the single aggravating factor for the collective problems. The Kerner report’s findings recommended that the U.S. Government abandon the condoning of open, blatant forms of racism to control and maintain White dominance. This abandoning of dated tactics led to the need for developing an improved method of controlling and suppressing its Black population. Changing times made it necessary for the U.S. government to change its methods to a much more subtle and socially acceptable means of continuing its racial suppression of Blacks and to maintain its White dominance. Clearly, the sophisticated method of psychological warfare met such a need. It was the logical choice, perfect for the changing times. Unlike the blatantly brutal forms of racism used in the past which Blacks were able to identify easily and therefore unify and form counter strategies, this modern method of racism works from a psychological perspective. This provided the U.S. government a more socially acceptable method of continuing the White racial hierarchy for dominance and control given that it is not as easily recognized. This new method exists in the space between overt racism and racial respect. Its methods include the ability to both influence the national climate and engender personal psychological feelings among Americans that meet the U.S government objective.

    This concept of the U.S government using psychology as a weapon to influence and control its Black population is not at all ridiculous. For more than a century ago, Charles Darwin predicted in his book "The Origin of Species" (1859) that "the evolutionary theory would one day provide a new foundation for the science of psychology." The truth in his words has been borne out. The change came when modern advances in our understanding of the genetics of social behavior ushered in Sociobiology; a controversial new science of the biological study of social behavior of humans. Since the 1950's, U.S. experimental psychologists and Cognitive scientists have developed ideas about the unconscious mental process that proposes that most of our mental processes happen outside of our awareness suggesting that the ability to control the behavior of people around us subconsciously is now a distinct possibility. Moreover, over the past five decades, human sociobiology has transformed into an evolutionary psychology that has gained science the means and ability to control and, therefore, predict the actions and feelings of individuals or groups merely by the messages conveyed against them.

    According to this controversial use of psychology, the human mind is the most extraordinary part of the human body, and there seems to be little doubt, wrote biologist David Barash, "that the unconscious is real and that in certain obscure ways the forces of culture are all-powerful in shaping human behavior. . Advances in these studies resulted in governments using psychology as a weapon for maintaining White dominance.

    While this may still sound incredibly ridiculous or unbelievable for many, psychological warfare is a real method of warfare that is commonly used by the U.S. Government. It was even used during the Iraq war. The United States Military dropped propaganda leaflets on Iraq and planted favorable stories about the new Iraq in the Baghdad press, radio, and television media and also removed all mention of Saddam Hussein from the Baghdad grades school educational curricula. Its usage of psychological warfare has been ongoing throughout the entire combat operation in Iraq from the initial battle thru the so-called rebuilding of Iraq . Moreover, the U.S. Government’s methods of rewriting the Iraq schools curriculum, thus creating a curriculum more favorable in its depiction of westerners/Whites and using the Iraqi national media to perpetuate propaganda and misinformation to facilitate their easier exploitation and suppression, are remarkably consistent with the current social conditions and experiences of African Americans. As for those who still doubt that such a conspiratorial dimension of racism exists at the governmental level in the United States, I strongly recommend that they read the National Security Council Memorandum– 46, and also Kenneth O’Reilley’s “Racial Matters: The FBI’s Secret File on Black America, 1960-1972.”

    The objective of the United States government has always been to maintain its White dominance over its Black population, and clearly, psychological warfare meets this need—because it covertly creates a national climate that allows the government to suppress consensually the advancement of its African American population and to maintain its White dominance and national stability. Furthermore, history overwhelmingly demonstrates that the White race’s innate proclivity for racism, control, and dominance is much too deeply engrained for them to just merely give up their practices of implementing suppressive methods over its African American population.

    Furthermore, the social structure of America's White societal elites was formed on the premise that there must be maintained a class of people to perform menial duties, to perform the drudgery work required to sustain life, and to take the lower paying jobs requiring “a lower order of intellect and skill.”

    Clearly, the method of psychological warfare provides the United States Governmental elites with a method for meeting this need but doing so with the added benefit of not appearing racist. The records of history show that the reincarnation of suppressive methods into forms more acceptable to the changing times is a common practice of the United States government as seen after the abolishment of slavery wherein its methods of using racist, oppressive treatment of its Black population was reincarnated into Jim Crow laws. And, also, let us not forget the many sorts of devious strategies and methods used to prevent Blacks from becoming registered voters. The historic and demonstrative evidence overwhelmingly reflects the reality that the U.S. government does manifest a proclivity for reinventing devious methods to suppress its Black population. This proclivity has led to the U.S. Government now using its proven method of psychological operations to control the advancement and growth of its Black population. It was the next logical choice for it provides the Government the benefit of the appearance of conducting humanitarian efforts to help its Black community while covertly seeking only to maintain its White dominance. Those who forget history are destined to have history’s crimes repeated against them.

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE AGAINST AFRICAN AMERICANS
    The objective of this psychological warfare against African Americans is to create a shift in victimization in behalf of whites that lessens pressure for social change on behalf of Blacks thus making the nation and the entire world insensitive to the plight of African Americans, thus successfully striping them of the national and international support that was acquired during the 1960's civil rights struggles. This is done by an immense campaign of false statistics and media reports degrading its back population and disproportionately portraying Black men as the face of crime and Black women as the face of welfare. These portrayals of African Americans are totally false and inaccurate but are necessary to make it appear that Black behavior is the reason for White racism in the U.S. Moreover, this method also makes any serious criticism of White racism almost impossible today. Not only does it tranquilize efforts on behalf of Blacks, it also affects attitudes that, when enacted through governmental policies, laws, and other legislation actions, serve to ensure that African Americans will not advance. Its effects are manifested in ideas, education, governmental policies, economic stratification, social segregation, housing markets, hiring and promotion practices, psychological issues, and minority access to a variety of social services and opportunity. It also creates a false justification for the legal system’s mistreatment of African Americans wherein they are disproportionately incarcerated, given stiffer sentences, and are more likely than other racial groups to be treated brutally, beaten, and fired upon by police officers while they are unarmed. Moreover, some studies have shown that this shift of victimization now reflects increasingly acrimonious beliefs and prejudiced perceptions about and against African Americans that are arguably stronger today than they were after emancipation. A testimony to the effectiveness of this psychological indoctrination upon the psyches of the White [non elite] masses was made evident during a study conducted wherein White students were shown a video tape of a White man lightly shoving a Black man during an argument. Only 13% percent rated the White man’s behavior as violent, however, when the shoving situation was reversed, 73% percent stated the Black man was acting violently.

    A more brutal example of the now acrimonious prejudiced perceptions of African Americans among the White masses was seen during the Rodney King beating incident which sparked the 1992 L.A. riots when four police officers beat Mr. King as he lay helpless on the street. The beating scene was widely televised and was repeatedly played in court during the police trial. However, the all-White jury during the first trial found the cops not guilty because, psychologically, it is now ingrained within their psyche that the brutal abuse was somehow justifiable.

    The United States Government’s psychological operation of devaluing African Americans is not always recognized. In fact, in most cases, it is executed very subtly and is often done under the pretext of helping African Americans, while in fact actually exploiting them. For example, in August 1996, then President William “Bill” Clinton signed the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act, better known as the “Welfare Reform” Bill. During the ceremonial undertaking, which was broadcast on television to the entire nation and the world, the president was strategically accompanied by two African American welfare moms who were positioned on either side of him as he signed the new bill—perpetuating false images of African American women without using overt racism —thus feeding and perpetuating the racist stereotype that the largest recipients of welfare are “lazy Black mothers.”

    This image was filmed, photographed, and transmitted all over the world.
    These types of actions by the White House feed the government’s objective of changing the face of racism in America to reflect that the racial problem in America stems from behavior among African Americans which justifies White attitudes towards Blacks while producing psychological feelings of embarrassment, gratitude, and indebtedness among Blacks towards the American government. The fact, however, is that the majority of welfare mothers are White women, and regardless of the many false images of social programs of welfare and food stamps for the benefit of African Americans perpetuated through the media, the largest recipient of these benefits cannot and will never be African American women. For let us remember that, according to U.S. government statistics, Black women make up only 6 % of the nation’s total population. Therefore, even if a ridiculously high number like half of all Black women were welfare recipients, that still would equate to only 3 % of the population. Clearly, the negative, fraudulent portrayal of Black women as being the majority of welfare moms is a prime example of psychological warfare.

    Perhaps no president relied more heavily on the use of the psychological operation that portrayed African American Women as negative welfare queens than Ronald Reagan (Green and McCall, 1987). Reagan's career as an actor and spokesperson for General Electric provided him with an audience to redefine his storytelling style and to perfect the ability of appealing to the concerns and fears of White voters without the use of overtly racist appeals. Reagan's campaigns revolved around themes that exemplified the image of the Black welfare queen. Such was seen when he challenged Gerald Ford for the Republican Party nomination for president. Reagan gave an elaborate story of “welfare abuse” that appeared in the New York Times, February 15, 1976, p1 which stated the following: "There's a woman in Chicago . She has 80 names, 30 addresses, 12 social security cards, and is collecting veteran benefits on 4 non-existing deceased husbands. And she is collecting social Security on her cards. She's got Medicaid, is getting food stamps, and she is collecting welfare under each name. Her tax-free income is over $150,000.” The speech emphasized how "they, the abusers, enjoy lives of leisure, whereas "we" [Whites] work harder than ever before with little chance of ever getting ahead.” The welfare queen abuse story played, and continues to play, well among the White masses, and its reference to the abuser leaves little doubt about the implied racial identity of the abuser without stating the racial identity of the abuser explicitly. The story then acquires a life of its own, far more elaborate and lucrative than before. At times, she has more kids and less husbands. Nevertheless, it worked because it delivered messages penetrating the consciousness of White voters across party lines. After Regan defeated Carter in the 1980 election, the welfare stories made it possible for him to reduce social programs.

    While portraying most welfare moms in America as being Black women, the government’s psychological operation also disproportionately perpetuates the image Black men as the literal face of crime in America . Although commonly presumed accurate and accepted, this representation is totally inaccurate for it presents a problem of semantics; the numbers just does not properly add up. For according the U.S. government, African Americans make up just above 12% percent of the total American population. From this number, let us attempt to quantify these African Americans that make up most of America ’s criminals. Let’s begin by subtracting from this 12% percent the amount of 6% represented by Black women. This leaves just 6% percent of the total American population as being African American males. Let us now assume a ridiculously high number such as half of all Black men in America as criminals. This total number of African American male criminals would still only comprise just 3% percent of the total national population. Moreover, we did not even bother to subtract from that original 6% those African American males that (disproportionately ) make up almost 35% of the United States military.

    The point being made here is that it is, in fact, literally impossible for America ’s Black population to equate to what is negatively portrayed in the national media. The point being made here is also that the absolute number of African Americans is simply too small to equate the statistics and perpetuated images that suggest that Blacks are the face of crime in America . For even if at disproportionately high levels of crime within their own Black communities, the total number of African Americans males is too small to even remotely resemble what the media perpetuates. This is not the result that one would expect from watching the evening news or an episode of the television show "Cops". While some African Americans today live in conditions that have them resorting to crime, never before in the history of America has the actual number of criminal activities of any given year been higher among African Americans than Whites. (Citing a reputable source would be powerful here.)

    The media perpetuation of Black males as the majority of criminals in America is clearly psychological operation at work. Moreover, research has disclosed that most serious crimes such as homicide, rape, and robbery and assault in inner cities are committed by a very small proportion of African Americans youths; some estimate a high of only 7% percent. Furthermore, the majority of crimes in America are committed by White males. [Their immensely larger population is a factor in this]. However, the media perpetuates the image that the majority of crimes are being committed by African American males.

    Another fallacy contributing to the negative propaganda against African American males is that the majority of African American males are in engaged in the use of illegal drugs. However, to the contrary, a report conducted by William Drummond, a University of California at Berkeley journalism professor and co-author of a U.S. Justice Department-sponsored survey, showed that only 6 percent of African Americans had used cocaine in their lifetime, and a great majority of these respondents (65.5 percent) had used it fewer than 11 times. Among Whites respondents, 10.6 percent had used cocaine in their lifetime with 62.3 percent of those respondents saying they had used it fewer than 11 times.

    These noted statistics are completely contrary of what is perpetuated by the racist media. Moreover, because the face of crime is now perpetuated as being Black, any effort by a politician or public figure to address the disproportionate number of African Americans incarcerated or given harsher sentences may now be construed as being soft on crime. Therefore, many Black politicians avoid this topic for fear of appearing soft on crime, which is political suicide.

    This negative and derogatory portrayal of African Americans through the usage of psychological operations of influence was also made apparent during the LA riots of 1992. The media portrayal of the event painted the perception that the Black community was solely responsible for the riots and disturbances. However, according to reports of those arrested, more than a third had full time jobs and some 60% of the rioters and looters were made up of Hispanics and Whites.

    A more recent example of the United States ’ deliberate devaluing of African Americans through the usage of psychological operations was seen during the 2005 flooding of New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. While many African American victims that where left behind suffered from hunger, dehydration, and the trauma of having loved ones dying all around them, the White media was more adept at portraying these Black victims as wild, inhuman, deviant criminals.

    The press presented, for the most part, those images of the desperate and suffering Black families that reinforced their negative and racist stereotypes. As seen, for example, in the desperation of many Black people who took water and food from the vacant stores -- actions deemed a necessity given the circumstances. However, the media painted the perception that most of these Black people were uncontrollable looters stealing equipment and appliances [although their homes were under water and there was no power within the city so, therefore, there existed no place to plug in electrical equipment or appliances]. Nevertheless, the images of Black people taking food and water were perpetuated as looting as “shown” in the constant repetition of the same 5-minute looping footage of so-called looters. On the other hand, Whites doing the same thing were portrayed in television coverage as “shopping for food.” If the “looting” by Blacks was as rampant as reported, why then was there the need to keep repeating the same 5-minute footage again and again? Then, there were the many unfounded rumors broadcast, not only nationally but also globally; that hospitals had been raided by drug addicts; and that there where many gang rapes of women and children in the New Orleans Convention Center; also that babies throats had been cut; and that Black thugs were shooting at rescuers. Although these rumors were later found to be untrue, the damage was already done against African Americans. Then their were the many insensitive racist remarks made by White officials and politicians, where one White official stated that "we couldn't get them out of the projects, however God did" .; another stated; "why are they complaining about the overcrowded conditions in the Superdome when they are accustomed to living [in the substandard conditions] in the ghetto". At a time when African Americans so desperately needed help, the U.S government seized the opportunity to further dehumanize and perpetuate derogatory propaganda about them. One African American victim recounted his experiences saying the following: “After four days of hell in the Superdome, they [the U.S. National Guards] forced men and women into separate lines to board the buses. When we questioned why we had to separate from our children, the National Guards drew their guns on us.” These events in the aftermath of the Hurricane are indicative of the American government’s sentiments towards its Black population. What is more, African Americans are denigrated within every aspect of American society by the U.S. government’s psychological operation -- from their educational failures, their crime statistics, and also their national health statistic reports. Where, based upon the U.S. Government’s national health statistics and reports concerning the health of Black America, it appears as if the bodies of Black people are literally genetically and physically inferior to that of the bodies of Whites.

    However, when examined outside of governmental discretion and control, we see, to the contrary, that Blacks are America ’s greatest athletes. The point being made here is that it is only when statistics are totally in the hands of the White government that the bodies of Blacks appear physically inferior to Whites. These actions by the U.S. government are clearly a case psychological warfare at work for the mounting evidence is too great to be purely coincidental for us not to connect the dots -- it is in fact an exact match. This tendency to routinely subjugate African Americans within the American society is clearly a case of psychological warfare at work for it is too prevalent to be merely dismissed as an oversight or as being the work of a few local governments. It is being deliberately implemented at a national level. This modern racism, as herein defined, has had a serious deleterious effect on the United States as a whole. Therefore, the immediate and social conditions of African Americans will not change as long as our conditions are being covertly manipulated and encouraged by the White societal elites. For as long as Whites are keeping the scores, it will always appear to be that Blacks are on the losing team, in the sinking ship. As long as the White government is assessing the strengths, weaknesses, and crime and health statistics of its Black population, they will always use psychological operation to influence and encourage White dominance and Black suppression. A new reality for African Americans will only be built by a Black society that dares to assess its own weaknesses and strengths and that takes control of the education of their own children.

    IT'S EFFECT UPON AFRICAN AMERICANS
    People are all products of cultural conditions and their worldviews operate outside of their level of consciousness. Therefore, no group can be preconditioned to see only the worst in themselves and not exhibit some degree of negative psychological impact. The worst aspect of this psychological operation against America ’s Black population is, not how it adversely affects race relations, but instead how it causes many African Americans to perceive themselves. It is like the earlier analogy of a group of people aboard their ship constantly receiving derogatory messages that their ship was lesser, smaller, not seaworthy or perhaps slowly sinking, subsequently coming to accept these negative messages and thus becoming distrustful of themselves, doubting themselves, hating themselves and therefore, fighting among themselves. The U.S. Government’s psychological warfare against African Americans also divides and demobilizes African Americans by engendering self-doubt, self-loathing, and distrust among their group.

    The African American psyches have borne centuries of extremely unhealthy and brutal devaluing in the American society from slavery through its aftermath of Jim Crow inequalities, an ongoing racially biased educational system, and now through this method of psychological warfare that routinely subjects African Americans daily to seeing -- through a controlled national media -- only the worst in themselves accomplished through the use of deliberate misinformation, false statistics, and census reports that insinuate that they should admire, respect, and trust only Whites.

    Because no group can be preconditioned to see only the worst in themselves and not exhibit some degree of negative psychological impact, these combined factors collectively contribute detrimentally to the mental health of African Americans and collectively exert an inhibiting effect on the extent to which many African Americans can realize their full human potential. For studies show that what a person thinks and feels about him/herself is largely determined by what others think. Therefore, it goes without question that the immensely mortifying setting to which African Americans are subjected daily would be extremely and fundamentally detrimental to their human condition and psyches. In fact, this systematic mortification of African Americans may be the most ignored and yet most disturbing fact of racial life in America for African Americans. It is believed to be the most aggravating, if not core, factor of the national phenomenon of self hatred; loss of educational aspirations; loss of unity, cohesion and racial pride; and fragile psyches of many African Americans today. Moreover, internalized racism, demoralization, anxiety, and anger over everyday discrimination are to be expected at the levels of the day-to-day mortification and exploitation experienced by African Americans in the United States . And yet, for far too long, many African Americans have been unable to discuss openly and honestly this problem and how it affects the way we perceive ourselves and the way we perceive our aspirations. [Several studies have touched on the connection between discrimination and poor mental health. It has also been linked to higher level of stress and psychological suffering including depression, feelings of hopelessness and of anxiety, fear and self hatred and lower level of life satisfaction. .] Although most African Americans may instinctively feel that something is wrong, they cannot, however, express their suspicions and conceptualize them sufficiently so that they and others can comprehend and act to defend themselves against it nor do most Blacks even believe that they are being attacked and subdued.

    Moreover, all African Americans have experienced the burden of this psychological warfare, some more severely than others. It is experienced every time we [Blacks] read a newspaper, watch the evening news, enter a classroom, and read its racially biased textbooks. And while many Black Americans have successfully navigated through the mortifying system of educational inequality and have gone on to graduate and lead successful, productive lives, for far too many African Americans this immense devaluation can seem inescapable and tragically, over time, many begin to accept subconsciously and painfully the negative portrayals of themselves.

    Many also become discouraged by the acceptance that their society is also preconditioned to see the worst in them and that, therefore, if they were ever to gain acceptance, if it is to be won at all, that success would be hard won and likely to manifest negative internalized psychological pain and distress within many African Americans that can take many forms. Under such extreme degradation as experienced by African Americans, many develop the psychological aberration of control in which we become literally prejudiced against other Blacks; that is, some of us actually acquire the character of the White oppressors, which, ironically, is not uncommon. For whenever one group exists beneath the ideologies and social domination of another group, the perceptions, value system, and the ideologies of the dominant group [directed subconsciously] are assumed by many in the oppressed group as evidence of the effectiveness of the dominant group strategy and tactics.

    This analogy was examined in a recent study within a classroom setting wherein Black and White participants were asked to list things that they hate most about Black people. When questioned, most of the Black respondents’ answers were almost completely in agreement with White respondents when asked the same question.

    The racist view of the dominant White culture permeates from every pore of the American society so unrelentingly that many African Americans themselves have actually acquired these same negative perceptions of themselves. Such is seen when African Americans refer to themselves as “******s;” the White doll syndrome where Black children refuse to play with Black dolls; the cultural pathology wherein Black people negatively label or discriminate against the more ‘typical’ phenotypes such as wider broad noses, coarser hair, larger lips, and ‘darker’ skin amongst themselves. And also as seen where African Americans spend millions of dollars each year on hair softeners, hair extensions, and bleaching skin creams, hair coloring dye, and colored contact lens. Now, many are undergoing cosmetic surgeries reducing the sizes of their noses and lips. It has become so common in fact that it is done unconsciously by African Americans. The premise of a victimized group acquiring the character of their oppressor even when directed against the victimized group was first applied to the experience of Jews living in the pre war Germany by Dr. Sigmund Freud and Dr. Bruno Bettelheim ., but was also soon applied to the experience of African-Americans, by Gordon Allport . and Frantz Fanon ..
    Dr. Herbert Mead, a Social psychologist, says that; "People are not born knowing who they are, they instead acquire their image of themselves over time by realizing their natural abilities and by constantly receiving messages from within their environment" . Furthermore, that "One's self-image derives, in large part, from how one is viewed by others -- school, and the broader society, and what one is taught of himself. (Mead) This premise is particularly unsettling given the day-to-day societal denigration and devaluing experienced by African Americans in America . One would expect them to exhibit some degree of self hatred or mental harm for there can be no doubt that it would be extremely difficult for any race or group not to suffer some psychological harm under such extreme degradation. Stephen Biko described such types of feeling in Donald Woods’ book entitled Biko © 1987 by saying "You begin to feel that there is something not quite right about yourself, about your humanity, and that it has something to do with your Blackness, because no matter how dumb or smart a White child is, he is born into that world”… “But you, the Black child, smart or dumb, you're born into this world and smart or dumb you'll die in it.” Moreover, these feelings may also affect the extent to which many African Americans realize their full human potential, therefore causing deep feelings of hopelessness, despair, and self hatred that causes many to react in an intropunitive manner; that is, they turn their frustrations inward against the self distrusting themselves, doubting themselves, and then subsequently hating and fighting among themselves making them more vulnerable to incarceration, suicide, homicide and substance abuse.

    HOW IT DIVIDES AFRICAN AMERICANS
    The doctrine of psychological warfare teaches to first identify the targeted group’s strength and then unrelentingly attack it. Logic dictates that given that unity and cohesion among African Americans was credited for the demise of White America’s past system of blatant institutionalized racism, that destroying this unity would be an essential objective of the psychological warfare against African Americans.

    The governmental psycho-social treatment of African Americans is designed to mold the character of self hatred. The overrepresentation and exaggeration of Black on Black crime statistics is a propaganda tool in the psychological operation of influence designed to create fear, hatred, and distrust among Blacks thus ultimately dividing the African American community. It is designed to destroy the Black unity and cohesion that historically was the cornerstone of the civil rights gains and the survival of African Americans for more than four hundred years of racial oppression.

    The fact, however, in regards to the overrepresentation of Black-on-Black crime in the media is that crimes within all communities are usually committed by the predominant racial groups that make up those communities. This fact holds true for every race and community. Therefore most crimes, including homicide, within predominately Asian communities are committed by Asians and this remains the same for Latin communities and also White communities. In fact in America , every year more Whites are killed by Whites than any other ethnic group. . Yet, we never ever hear the phrase White-on-White crime do we? In fact, although all racial groups are more often killed by their own group, rarely do we ever hear terms such as Asian-on-Asian crime, or Latino-on-Latino crimes. It is only of African Americans that we hear this. Why? Because there is an intentional attempt by the U.S. government to keep its African American population divided. This is deliberately done to destroy the Black unity and cohesion that historically was the cornerstone of the civil rights gains and the survival of African Americans for more than four hundred years of racial oppression -- thus obtaining the "Divide and Rule” objective. Then there is also the indirect violence that is produced in the Black communities through the feelings of hopelessness, desolation, and self-hatred. This alone would constitute an act of terrorism by the United States Government, and yet it is never held accountable.

    This psychological operation also discourages our brightest and most gifted African Americans who historically were responsible for gathering and motivating the lesser-educated and complacent masses of African Americans to demand equality. Many of these Black elites are rendered disillusioned and frustrated, therefore now having fallen victim in adopting the same disdain and contemptuous views towards the lesser fortunate Black masses as their White counterparts do, themselves saying that the rhetoric of victimization of racism by the lesser fortunate Blacks are merely excuses. They’ve adopt the same ideology and character of their White counterparts in regards to the Black masses; thus making the case that, if they have made it then, all those other less fortunate Blacks can also do the same. Many of these successful Blacks have also moved to the suburbs segregating themselves from the Black masses and, instead of focusing their efforts on the suffering of these Black masses, [Now wealthy, comfortable, and complacent victims of decadence, escapism, and isolated from the exploitation and suffering of the masses] now redirect their attention towards trying to show Whites that not all Blacks are like these negative images depicted. One such an example of this disdain and frustration towards their own Black masses as seen when the actor/ philanthropist turned Black spokesperson Bill Cosby made the televised comments stating that "you Black men need to stop beating on your women when you can't find a job." He, living outside of the ghettos, as developed the same prejudices against the masses of Blacks as his White neighbors. Moreover, what, if anything, does Mr. Cosby know of life within the Black ghettos of America today than what the White propaganda media gives him. Moreover, his comments were continually replayed by the media to perpetuate their racist objectives.

    This psychological operation of influence also undermines Black leadership. Many Black leaders today -- although most will perhaps never publicly admit this -- have become disillusioned and frustrated by the false statistics and representation of their fellow African American masses. Such is seen when on November 27,1993, the Rev. Jessie Jackson said " there is nothing more painful for me at this point in my life than to walk down the street and hear foots steps and start to think of robbery and then turn around and see that it’s someone White and feel relieved.”.. “How humiliating”. Many leaders, in profound frustration and desperation, have called out to the African American community for a spiritual revival of themselves. Moreover, many of our Black leaders have become complacent in terms of significance, gains, and effectiveness. Today, there is no more real striving, no more real struggle, and no significant gains made. Many of our leaders have become insignificant pied pipers who lead the following back masses on outdated foot marching strategies while shouting out the cries of racism and demands for equality. The only effectiveness these strategies serve is as a platform to give the illusion and appearance of hope and action. However, within such a mortifying environment as Black people endure psychologically in daily life, perhaps hope is a good thing.

    AMERICA'S PRISON SYSTEM: THE PROFITABLE INDUSTRY OF RACISM

    The secret infrastructure of the American judicial legal system is one where African Americans are being systematically, disproportionately incarcerated and the propaganda of psychological warfare is then used to justify their state. The propaganda of negative misrepresentations of African Americans males as the being the prominent face of crime creates a justification for America's disproportionate mistreatment of African American males within the U.S. judicial system. This propaganda creates a false justification for the disproportionately high number of African American males incarcerated and the longer sentences they receive. . These inequalities within the legal system are beneficial to the government in that it stimulates and maintains the stability of the economy in terms of building more prisons and providing more jobs.

    The prison industry in the United States is big business that uses a modern form of inhumane exploitation of African Americans. The U.S. has locked up more people than any other country: a half a million more than China , which has a population five times greater than the U.S. The U.S. holds 25% of the world’s prison population, but only 5% of the world’s people. (CNN, ABC News) The number of inmates includes a disproportionately high percentage of African Americans. The prison industry in the U.S. grew from a population less than 300,000 in 1972 to 2 million in 2000. A significant factor in this growth is privatization of prisons. Private prisons are the biggest business in the prison industry complex. They receive a guaranteed amount of money for each prisoner, independent of what it costs to maintain each one. The secret to low operating cost is having a minimal number of guards for the maximum number of prisoners.

    Ten years ago, there were only five private prisons in the U.S. There are now more than 100. The private contracting of prisoners for work fosters incentives to incarcerate more African Americans. Prison depends on this income. At least 37 states have legalized the contracting of prison labor by private corporations. Corporate stockholders who profit from prison workers lobby for longer sentences in order to expand their work force and profits; the system feeds itself / the prison industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the U.S. , and its investors are on Wall Street. The list includes such companies as IBM, Boeing, Motorola, Microsoft, AT&T, Texas Instrument, Dell, Compaq, Honeywell, Hewlett- Packard, Nortel, Lucent Technologies, Revlon, Macy, Target Stores, Pierre Cardin, and many more. The prison privatization boom began in the 1980s under the Ronald Reagan but reached its height in the 1990s under William Clinton when Wall Street stocks did extremely well. Clinton ’s program for cutting the federal workforce resulted in the Justice Department contracting with private prison corporations.

    The societal and economic factors of racism in which the White elites suppress their lower Black class in order to maximize profits is a very profitable industry. A hidden fact is that the U.S. Government’s revenues from its exploitation of its Black population is actually greater than what it spends on programs for the benefit of African Americans. In the 1980s, Michael Reich developed the segmentation theory of ‘divide and rule,’ which attempts to explain racism from an economic point of view. In this theory, Reich proposed that the ultimate goal in society is to maximize profits. As a result, the exploiter will attempt to use any means to (1) suppress higher wages among the exploited class -- the cheap labor aids the success of the U.S. economy, (2) weaken the bargaining power of the working class, often by attempting to split it along racial lines, (3) promote prejudices, (4) segregate the Black community, (5) ensure that the elite benefit from the creation of stereotype and racial prejudices against the Black community. Reich argues that the major corporations in the U.S. (e.g., Time Warner, Coca Cola, General Motors, etc.) all have at least one member on each other’s corporate boards of directors. As a result, it is in the interest of these members to maximize profits while employing the above devices. The mere fact of these corporate executives sharing economic corporate power combined with the quest for economic profit has now paved the way for economic discrimination.

    In her book, Unequal Justice: A Question of Color; Professor Coramae Richey Mann, an African American professor in criminal justice, writes that the criminal justice system’s goal is to warehouse Blacks and other minorities in prisons and to expand the criminal justice enterprise so as to provide jobs for the majority groups in the law industry (law enforcement officers, probation officers, and lawyers). The implementation of the ‘three strikes you’re out law’ and enhanced sentences for felons found with crack cocaine, rather than its more potent powder form found more often among Whites, are deliberately designed to assure that White dominance is maintained because they are directly aimed at imprisoning Black males thus keeping them from being productive members of the Black community. The high number of Black men incarcerated also directly slows down the Black pregnancy growth rate and this also strips African Americans of political power through the loss of voting rights among our Black felons. The many governmental program implemented for the benefit of African Americans are often done in a manner that fosters humiliation and the sense of obligation among African American toward its government. The fact, however, remains that African Americans, although making up just 12 percent of the national population, contributes billions of dollars each year to the Gross Domestic Product. The profits earned by the U.S. government from its covert exploitation of its Black population far exceed any amount of funds actually spent by the government on social programs benefiting African Americans.

    Clearly, there are many African Americans that may still find this monumental disclosure to be ridiculous. However, it would, in fact, be more ridiculous and, indeed, absurd or a case of collective amnesia to believe that a racial group such as Whites [the most arrogant and rapacious group; possessing an unprecedented history and proclivity for brutal racism; they, who are the most indomitable in history; of which all other races have been either their enemies or victims; they, who alone have taken possession of the physical and moral world and have planned and waged aggressive, unjustifiable wars and have committed crimes against humanity such as genocide and slavery] would just simply give up their innate racist proclivity for dominance so easily. Moreover, exposing the Black Matrix is not at all about inflaming racial hatred and anti White-ism. It is about informing our communities about what is being deliberately done to them as a matter of national interest so that they may stop accepting these hardships and, instead, confront them. For there is neither a struggle nor fight more pressing for African Americans today than the eradication of this real-life Black Matrix that is used to suppress us, confuse us, and turn us against each other.

    Beloved OmowaleX;

    I humble :qqb023: myself and enter into your your presence with Harmony, Order, and Balance. Thank you for sharing.

    You know Beloved, there is a lot one can tell about a person in their writing. No humble greetings and no humble endings.

    Alas! You have arrived. Little do you know, I have been waiting for you for sometime now.

    Beloved, I am fully aware that sometimes our people can even get stressed over the Truth, and I menatate this is not the case with you.

    So many have asked the questions. Where is your statement above coming from? What do your comment above have to do with the missive I posted above titled: THE BLACK MATRIX: The Modern Mental and Social Suppression [/B]of African American Under National Interest. Help me to overstand that please. I need to see the connection with the message and your comment.


    LATER...

    OmowaleX writes: First of all, in a pompous and condescending manner you falsely assume that one lives in such a make believe world and attempts "to criticize that which they do not know or understand."

    I DO KNOW and OVER-stand that I am NOT one who -believes in the concept of "white supremacy" nor do I CONSTANTLY whine and complain about the injustices of "white people". For if I was indeed a "God" I would have no reason to recognize, let alone give power to a LESSER BEING.

    Yet, is is you who speak of others living in a "make believe world".


    And you have the audacity to speak of others as foolish!

    Hmm...

    Well, I do KNOW a LOT MORE than you THINK.

    I am not the one here who has been "brainwashed" into giving power to the concept of "white supremacy" nor do I refer to myself as "God" or "Goddess" which are man-made concepts. In fact, can you point to where these terms "God" or "Goddess" were used by the Zulu, Dogon or people of Ta-Shemau?!

    Because you call, name or refer to yourself by a "europeanized" version of AST does not make YOU a "divinity" or of "divine nature".

    Especially when one claims to represent a "movement" which is going no further than "my space".


    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Beloved OmowaleX :

    Thank you for the compliment (pompous). Being there is a reverse side to the reverse side, pompous-excessive self-esteem, one must have that to get over the bridges of madness/human being mind-set. So you calling me Pompous in that sense, you become the validifier of my Divinity/Goddess status. Truth does not need validation. Again, thank you.

    We all are foolish when we attack that which we do not understand/overstand.

    OmowaleX : Well, I do KNOW a LOT MORE than you THINK.


    Beloved, do you THINK you can get us out of this Black Holocaust we are in? Do you know the Information that is not in the dictionaries, libraries and cannot be Google searched? Do you know the Blanket condemnation that will destroy evil?

    Beloved, I dealt with a Female version of what is going on here awhile back. You may even know her. Beloved, you do not qualify to define who and what I am or offend me because I am immune to such attacks. Are you my Maker? Did you reveal me to the world?

    As for a movement that is not going no where. UM!

    What movement is that?

    What Black Movement is going somewhere?

    Where are they going?

    Where is Afrika going presently in her condition?

    Where are you going with your comments?

    Have you been assigned the duties of Time and Motion?

    The only Movement I am concerned about is the Movement of truth and reality, my conscious raising to Divine heights unknown even to me, Being The Change the World/Afrikans needs to See, and a Statue of Liberation for Afrika, and that is going somewhere.

    Beloved, I will end here because the Cosmic Ancient Ancestors said to stop. The ancestors may allow me to reply once more, and they will stamp the last reply SO BE IT, and knowing the Cosmic Ancient Ancestors, they would tell me to keep moving on.

    Here is loving you in spite of...:kiss1:

    Also, Iya of Afrika

    I sure hope you actually have PERMISSION from the author whose work you are posting otherwise this is copyright infringement.

    Secondly, I am fully aware of the "Female version" from which your posts are based and since you state you have been "waiting for you for some time now" explains to me alot about your true intentions.

    Just as you state how "I am not qualified" neither are YOU. For you are NOT MY Maker nor did YOU reveal to ME the world.

    But I do again KNOW some things concerning this "Matrix" in which you speak.

    It is one which views the Black "Man" , the HEAD of alll Creation as a secondary part of creation, while placing above the Black MAN that which is supposed to represent the Womb. However, the WOMB of "Man" is also the TOMB of "man". The "seat", "throne", "place", "position", "abode", "house" is also a "tomb" when it is DIVIDED AMONG ITSELF and who can argue that this "abode" is NOT Divided Among Itself at present time. Or do you KNOW the true meanings of that which you refer to your Self as.

    As a FREE-thinking person I SEE and KNOW that the Black "Man" (Mind) is "Suppressed from Within" and this has been the case since the Mind of the Black Man was supplanted, deposed and subverted by the Womb (ie "Tomb") of the Black Mind and the only True Liberation of the Black "Man" (Mind) from this suppression is return to natural POSITION in relation to ALL LIVING THINGS.

    So, just as you say you are free from my "attacks" I myself am immune from all who THINK they are Above me in word and deed who are leading US (Collectively) NO Where except to the "tomb of "Man"....(mental and spiritual death and destruction).

    Peace!

    I told you Goddess, we are at war with ourselves... That's why "we aren't going anywhere"... As that is only point most of us cannot see beyond deeper into any life-actual solution, as if we all are not nearing a near extinction... Literally so... And it seems to be no "scholar" with a solution to that blunt truth.

    Beloved OmowaleX I enter your presence humbly:qqb023:

    I just returned from the Chambers of the Divine, the Abyss of Infinity, where it Is real, and the The Cosmic Ancient Ancestors said to not become involved with what can become a Hutu-Tutsi conflict.


    When one has tagged another as an adversary one will not be able to reason with them profoundly. So the more I entertain you the more I increase your Mental value in that we are discussing.


    I leave you to your belief, what you believe about Isis and Osiris does not add nor take away what has been established about these two Mystical Entities.



    We use the same Profane language to argue what others seem to see as profane (Isis and Osiris). Um! Is there a contradiction there?
