    As I talk to people, watch television, listen to the radio or scan the internet, I start to notice a pattern in the psychological and emotional manipulation of black people by "the powers that be" and subsequently by our people, one to the other.

    Lets take a look at some popular phrases that were used by whites and others, now a part of our colloquial ramblings.

    "Slavery was in the past lets leave it there."

    "We need to get over this whole color thing."

    "We are all mixed, soon we will all be the same."

    "Blacks are just as racist as whites."

    "N***a is different from n***er."

    "Love is color blind."

    "Africans sold their own into slavery."

    "We need to come together as one so we can move on."

    "I can't just say I'm black, what about all of the other blood in me?"

    "I don't see color."

    "People of all colors are saying n***a, it doesn't mean anything bad anymore, its a term of endearment."

    "We are so far removed from Africa...."

    "Things are a lot better now than they were."

    "Green is the only color that counts."

    "We all bleed one color, red."

    "Everyone struggles, we aren't the only ones."

    "Racism doesn't exist anymore."

    "Hip hop is worldwide, no one can claim it."

    That is a fine list of falsehoods you have collocted to highlight the lies and tactics used against black people who want to empower themselves. They highlight the need to discredit the concept of black power or black empowerment as some euphamistically prefer to call it.

    God Im so glad others see.
    Its like they all shareing one brain.
    Ha.


    Deepa i really admire the way your brain
    works and the things you see, I pray you share
    your thoughts with other sisters because being
    Sisters have that emotional thing, white society
    is trying desperately to control
    US THROUGH YOUR HEARTS.
    Stay sighted Queen.

    Great thread Deepa, I truly admire your knowledge sista.


    How about this.....

    "Martin Luther King had a dream so we all could live together" ( I admire King but his intergration concept kinda messed us up)

    "If you could say black power than I should be allow to say white power"

    "The Black Panthers are racist like the KKK"
