THE STATE OF THE U.S. EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM AND THE MIS-EDUCATION OF BLACK YOUTH


Education Under a Reparations Accord

Ari S. Merretazon, M.S.CED, Panelist National Co-chair for External Affairs,

National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America

(N’COBRA)

 

My Framework
Never forget, Reparations is the cross-road
solution to our human capital infrastructure in the context of a Reparations
Accord for Blacks in America as a matter of public policy."  Education is one of our five broad but
specific injury areas---this we must be clear on.

At the end of our African-Centered victory and a
reparations accord is signed, our education system must have an operational
definition with specific contextual outcomes as a result of an education
process that acknowledges the human capital within the individual, family, and
community. Our education system must be culturally rooted in applicable tools
and techniques that will allow our people to design, instruct, and educate
youth and adults with information which draws out and activates their potential
in furtherance of community building in the context of collective ownership
and/or control."

Reparations under a reciprocal sum reparations
accord must have allocations for private/independent African-centered cultural
enrichment institutions. The mission is to be a sanctuary for the knowledge
needed to repair all of our injury areas whereby we and our children may regain
control of our human possibilities. We must draw out of our people a true understanding
of where we were--the creators and determiners of our complete environment from
the spiritual to the religious, from the interpreters of the solar system to
mathematics and science on the ground.  These
historical facts and circumstances of our historical time-line is our context
card. The context card trumps the race card!

The degree of our injury is generational as
describe and defined by Olomenji, a Chicago social worker, in a commentary on
the subject of Mentacide in a book entitled African Psychology in Historical
Perspective & Related Commentary edited by Daudi Ajani ya Azibo:

“Mentacide is the silent rape of a people's collective mind by the penetration and
perpetuation of alien culture, values, belief systems, or ideas for the purpose
of group destruction or for political use of the victim group. Mentacide method
is to control the behavior of the victim through mind control. Mentacide
systematically utilizes the institutions which project image, values, beliefs,
and opinion.” (Olomneji, 1996:73)

Reparations allocated to and through African centered cultural enrichment institutions must be under a negotiated reparations accord, as a matter of public policy -- as opposed to program funding unconnected to our legacy in America. This will enable our African-centered institutions to provide, protect and defend our people against continued Mentacide with the necessary tools needed in order to exist and join the table of humanity once again.

This African-Centered Education must be inextricably linked to our other injury
areas of Economics, Peoplehood, Health, and Mass Incarceration! Essentially our
African-Centered Education must address the whole body, just like we dress our
bodies (shoes on feet, gloves on hands, hat on head and so forth). The same approach
must be used for our injury areas. Our injury areas are intrinsically connected—they
cannot be disconnected. 

I say this because there are some of others advocating the funding of African-centered education, separate and apart from our other injury areas, and calling it reparations. and as a way and means to deal with our current community issues without a reparations accord as a matter of public policy. This is wrong and is an element of refined enslavement.

Reparations should be used to finance, along with our other injury areas, educational
institutions that restore cultural consciousness, wholeness, and academic excellence to people of African descent. These institutions should be totally controlled by African people and staffed with scholars committed to the Re-Africanization
of Africans.
