The result then was that we were so-called freed, dead broke without brick, bread or thread, and with no choice but to stay "unfree" notwithstanding the 13th Amendment!! With this MEO our demand for reparations in our life time will be permanently restricted to an advisory role under the four layers of governance and control…

Evidence of the destruction of the property right to our minds: Michael Joseph Jackson

For all who are in denial: Michael Joseph Jackson is a clear example and evidence of how the property right in our own mind, culture, and human possibilities as a people were reconstructed through the terror of chattel enslavement from generation to generation.

Our ancestors were terrorized by injustices codified in the Constitution of the United States by America�s founding fathers and carried out by religious organizations, corporations, and units of government. Left unchanged,… Continue

Black History, R. I. P.?

by Dr. Pamela D. Reed

Now that Barack Obama is President of the United States, why don't we just pretend that America wasn't built on slaveholding?

If the spate of recent "post-racial" articles suggesting that we need no longer commemorate the African American struggle for freedom and equality in this country is any indication, this seems to be where we're heading.This is a classic case of the phenomenon called selective history/memory, or as some have termed it,… Continue

Obama’s church selection, post-racial symbolism over substance

When will it end? I'm talking about America’s full-court media pressure to have President Obama to reject everything with a Black context with links to the horrific one-way relationship of enslavement – master and slave.

The media and the body-politic of America is forcing Obama to be a post-racial symbol, without embracing and engaging what it would actually cost to be post-racial,… Continue
