In short...

THE DESCENDANTS OF WEST AFRICA SLAVES HELD IN THE AMERICAN SOUTH, CENTRAL / SO. AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN...WHO LIVE IN AMERICA. AN AFRICAN BORN NAUTALIZED CITIZEN IS ALS AN AFRICAN AMERICAN.

The only distnction being that he is not a descendant of the same tribal system as African Americans unless he was born in the Gold Coast area where the vast majority of TAST Slaves were taken from. He is an African American in the same Citizen category as an African American or an Italian American in the general sense. Ther notion that you must be born in Africa to be an African American is a false one. African Americans have African genetics...GENES DON'T LIE!

***THE CULTURE*** OF "ONE DROP" >ESTABLISHED IN IN SLAVERY AND POST SLAVERY TIMES - IN SPITE OF PEOPLE OF COLOR AND IN SURVIVAL MODE OF "THOSE PEOPLE"... HAS ALL MIXED RACE PEOPLE AS "BLACK" UNLESS THEY IDENTIFY AS OTHER THAN WHITE. SO THE QUESTION OF BLACK AS AN ETHNC REFERENCE IS SUBJECT TO COLORISM AND RACE COLOR IDENTITY WHICH IS A RACE AND SOCIALLLY BASED CONSTRUCT THAT S EXTREMELY DIVISIVE IN IT'S WORSE ASPECTS.

YET TODAY BLACKCAN BE SOMEONE WHO IS TWO THIRDS EURO OR MIXED, ONE THIRD AFRICAN...OR ONE WHO IS 3/4THS AFRICANAND 1/3RD EURO AND BOTH ARE BLACK...SO OBVIOUSLY GENETICS ARE IRRELEVANT IN THE BLACK CONSTRUCT WHICH CAN'T BE RIGT...THE PROBLEM IS COLOR ID...IT IS THE  CHILD OR SYMPTOM OF SOCIETAL AND INSTITUTIONAL / GENERTIONAL RACISM.

BLACK...was created in the 60's as a counter call to White Supremacy. That was the Natonalist call which was not the voice of the majority who were then identifying as proud Negros and who were largely Christian. MLK was the face of the Civil Rights Movement. Black was solidified by James Broen's entry into the struggle with inspiational songs like "Im BLACK and I'm PROUD". At that time ALL African Americans were in the same boat in term of rights and privileges...BLACK was never ment to be out ethnicity replacing AFRICAN!

...NOW the era of economic empowerment was about to begin...then came the split with the competition for the dollar...MEN AND WOMEN LEAVING THE HOME IN PURSUIT OF FINANCIAL SUCCESS...the Ideological / ID Split BETWEEN SPIRITUAL GROUPS after more freedoms were optained and groups could congregate and create history.

...but the originl Afro Centric Black or African American began to differentiate and deviate from the the original "Collective" Afro Centric  consciousness of the 60's...now there is ideological war and rampant social criticism with the advent of social media. everyone is a Journslist...a Spiritual Light, a Critic or one who has the answer...getting one to elborate on this new light without moving way up into the cosmos where these lights live or down into an insult laden diatribe is damn near impossible. ONE COMMON BELIEF THAT MUST BE CORRECTED IS THE NOTION BY BOTH RACIST WHITES AND BLACKS WHO CALL THEMSELVES PRO BLACK THAT AFRICAN AMERICANS CANNOT BE AFRICAN BECAUSE WE WERE BORN HERE...

...that argument completely bypasses Genetics...it also pushes the color code which is a Racist vibration of the sometines punnishing Color Code Consciousness that permeates all formerly Colonized or Enslaved polulations. We cannot settle for being Black Americans...Whites shed ancestral nationality in favor of a created one...America and WHITE over their Ancient Anglo Saxon Heritge. It is no coincidence that African Americans display many of the counter African mindsets as Americsn citizens. We were removed from the "Terrestrial Experience"...we live in an orgnized Industrial Society with a Government and Laws..our leaders are elected...we are Policed in Society...we have and expect services as well as protectionfor desth ot injury...that makes us CIVILIZED PEOPLE...

MAJORITY CULTURE MODEL - MINORITY POPULATION IS ASSIMILATED SOME CHOOSE TO CONNECT OR PRACTICE WITH ANCESTRAL OR SELF CREATED SPIRITUAL AUTORITY. TODAY WE REJECT GOD SND RELIGION... BUT NO ONE SAYS WHAT THE ALTERNATIVE IS BESIDES DISCOVERING THE "WOKE" GOD OF SELF. HE OR SHE IS THE ONE NAMING THE COONS AND SELLOUTS...THE KNOW "FOR SURE" WHAT ALL OF THEM OR THEY ARE DOING OR LACKING. THEY QUOTE BOOKS DECADES OLD AS PROOF ...OVER LIFE EXPRERIENCE?...BOOKS ARE REFERENCES TO LIFE...NOT  LIFE ITSELF...

WE ARE WESTERNIZED PEOPLE REGARDLESS...WE SPEAK ENGLISH SO WE THINK, WRITE, EXPRESS LIKE ENGLISH SPEAKING PEOPLE THINK...WE HAVE A MALIGNED REGIONAL VERNACULAR ( SLANG / EBONICS ) THAT IS THE CHOICE OF THE DISENFRNCHISED, THE YOUNG URBAN MILLENNIAL...THE RAPPER.  ALL  IN SPITE OF MAJORITY LANGUAGE AESTHETICS. THIS IS THE BLACK AFFECT...THE TRASHING OF THE LANGUAGE AS SOCIAL PROTEST WHICH I CONSIDER TO BE DESTRUCTIVE SOCIALLY AND EDUCATIONALLY BECAUSE IT CREATES AN ANTAGONISTIC MINDSET. IT'S AN EXTENSION OF THE BLACK HOOD CODE. I

...in addition there is he naturally occurring "Broken English" which mmigrants and chronically uneducated Folk have as a trait.. 

...we must embrace education so that he issue of who we are can be discussed in detail as well as provide some solutions ths unite us generally as African Americans...this is our essential reference. African Acestry / American Citizenship..

BLACK is a maze...a customized ID and can be challenged by anyone by saying  - "you ain't Black...or Black enough". No one can challenge your Genetics or the fact of where you originated or where you live and were born. If we have a problem with White and it's privileged based majority lifestyle...then we see and understaand the Construct that they employ socially and how it stays exclusive...the Black Construct is from an Era passed...it's time to be what we truly are and shed the colorism and flase ethnicities lie being from Egypt s ancestry...that's the So East...not us. Our history is not lost in every place.. The 60's romantic notion of adopting a famil ygot clarified and we connected with the continent . Ture identity is practicing your cuture..read some...but live the rest...the book will never compare...

...OLD DUDE, OLD NIGA?...NO! ORIGINALLY > "ORIGINAL GOD"... NOT ORIGINAL GANGST'A...BUT WHAT HAPPENED TO THE R'SPECK FOR O.G.?

AFRICAN AMERICAN MEN HAVE THEIR WORK TO DO...THE ELDERS WHO HAVE LAID THE FOUNDATION ( AND THERE ARE A SIZEABLE NUMBER OF US ) DESERVE RESPECT FOR THE WHOLE OF THIS SUCCESS OF OUR CULTURE IN OUR CONVERSATON OF "WHAT IS AND HPOW IT GOT THERE". WE ARE WHO HAVE THE ANSWER OF WHY?...IN OUR DAY WE HAD ***NOTHING***...BUT OUR WILL AND OUR CREATIVITY . THAT IS WHAT CREATED THE CULTURE FOR AN AFRICAN AMERICAN BABY BOY TO HAVE A COMPLETE STYLE TO "GROW AND SHOW" IN!

THE RAP AND HIP HOP GENERATION HAS A STONG CONNECTION TO AMERICAN HISTORY OF THE CARIBBEAN...PARTICULARLLY THE BIG AND SMALL ISLANDS...THE ANTILLES. THE GOD FATHER "COOL HERC" WAS JAMAICAN AND IT IS NO MISTAKE OR COINCIDENCE THA HIS BREAK INNOVATION WAS BASED IN THE DRUM. JAMAICANS HAVE A STRONG GOLD COAST W. AFRICAN DRUM CULTURE THAT IS PURELY ROOTED AND A SURVIVOR OF SLAVERY. IT WAS A NATURAL THING TO HAPPEN WHEN LOOKING FOR A WAY TO ADD TIME TO A CUT AND CHANGE THE NATURE OF THE BEAT. THE DRUM ALWAYS MOVES...

NO ONE WITH SENSE HAS MUCH BAD TO SAY ABOUT THE LEADERS OF THE NEW SCHOOL. BUT THE CONSCIOUS LYRICS VS NON CONTENT / CONSCIOUS ISSUE IS REAL AND IT REFLECTS THE DIFFERENCES OF THE GENERSTONS VISION FOR SELF AND THE WORKD, BUT RAP IS AN ANCHOR OF CULTURE THAT HAS TO BE KEPT WHOLE...HIP HOP IS THRE WILD CHILD OR THE LEADER BUT AT "EVERY" LEVEL YOU'LL FIND THOSE RUNNIG THE GAME IN THEIR 40'S - 50 AND ABOVE...THAT'S FACT BCAUSE THIS IS A MONEY GAME ANF THE OG HAS THE TIME IN AD IS STILL HOLDING THE CULTURE ON TOUR GLOBALLY. THERE ARE OG'S MAKING REAL MONEY FOR THE FIRST TIME AND PROFITTING OFF OF THEIR ORIGINALITY AS WELL AS THE INNOVAIONS OF THE MILLENNIAL INDIE. FOR THAT REASON THERE NEEDS TO BE A RECONCILIATION AND OG NEEDS THAT RESPECT FROM THE YOUNGBLOOD STRAIGHT UP!

FATHER AND SON ARE OFTEN AT ODDS BUT THEY DON'T BREAK UP THE FAMILY OVER DIFFERENCES. WHAT THE SON SHOULD UNDERSTAND IS THAT RESECT IS A WALL...THE FATHER IS ALREADY THAT SYMBOL THAT THE YOUTH NEEDS IN THE WORLD WHETHER HE IS WITH HIS FATHER OR NOT. THE FATHER EARNED THAT WITH TIME...A THING THAT THE YOUTH IS ACQUIRING. SO THE NOTION OF FATHER ...AS AN HONORED SYMBOL OF A PILAR... IS HELD HIGH EVEN IF THE FATHER IS FAILING IN LIFE. HIS BROTHERS TAKE UP THE SLACK. ALL OF OUR BURDEND REVOLVE AROUND PROVIDING FOR CHILDREN. THE FATHER IS HELD TO HIS RESPONSIBILITIES TO HIS LAST DAY. HE NEVER RUNS OUT OF POSSIBILITIES TO BE BETTER WHILE HE IS BREATHING.


HEBREW, ISREALITE, MUSLIM, ORISA, CHRISTIAN, NATIONALIST, SPIRITUAL NATIONALIST, LIBERAL, CONSERVATIVE...IS THER REALLY A WE?

*I AM AFRICAN AMERICAN...IMO THAT ETHNIC REFERENCE WAS SOLIDIFIED OVER BLACK BY MR. BARRACK OBAMA AS THE FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN PRESIDENT. MY REASON LIKE MR. OBAMA IS THAT IT NOT ONLY MAKES SENSE FOR TODAY, BUT IT IS A NATURAL THING EASILY APPLIED AND AITHENTIC TO IT'S REFERENCE COMPLETELY. "BLACK" LIKE "WHITE"...IS A RACE BASED COLOR CODED SOCIAL CONSRUCT THAT IS SELF CONGRATULATORY OR SELF PTO A FAULT AND TO THE DETRIMENT OF THE "OTHER" BECAUSE BOTH ARE FALSE ETHNICITIES THAT INFER "PRIVILEGE OR SUPERIORITY".

IN THE ORIGINAL AFRO CENTRIC CONSCIOUSNESS COMMUNITY >>>THE FOLK WHO INVENTED AFRO CENTRICITY...WE WERE CROSS IDEOLOGICAL...YOU COULD STUDY ORISA, EGYPTOLOGY AND VARIOUS FORMS OF "BLACK" CONSCIOUSNESS PRACTICES "ALL" IN THE SAME BUILDING. "WE WERE CROSS SOCIAL". TODAY THE SO CALLED BLACK COMMUNITY IS A MASS OF LOOSE KNIT CLIQUES OR GROUPS OR MOVEMENTS OR SPIRITUALITIES WHO ARE AT ODDS WITH JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING. CHIEF AMONG THE MILLENNIAL DENIALS ARE THE REJECTION OF JESUS AND GOD AND RELIGION IN GENERAL...ALL OF THE THINGS THAT INFER AND HOLD THE NOTION OF A CIVIL ORDER.

*IN SOCIETY, IT'S EITHER SPIRITUAL ORDER COMBINED WITH GOVERNMENTAL ORDER OR THE WILD WILD WEST. IN THE WILD WILD WEST...NOBODY SLEEPS SAFE...ALL IS UP FOR POWER GRABS.

*RELIGION IS A PILLAR OF ORGANIZED SOCIETY...IT IS THE REASON THAT YOU CAN LOCK YOUR DOOR AT NIGHT AND HAVE THE REASONABLE EXPECTATION THAT IT WILL NOT BE KNOCKED DOWN AND YOUR HOUSE TAKEN OVER. REJECTION OF GOD IS THE REJECTION OF THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF "PROTECTION"...THE SPIRITUAL CONSCIOUSNESS OF PROTECTION IS TOTAL...SELF PROTECTION AND ROTECTION OF INNOCENTS  = CIVIL SOCIETY. WITHOUT THE GOD PRINCIPLE WHAT DO YOU HAVE?...***THE NATURE OF MAN***  MAN RULED BEAST MODE ...

HEBREW, ISREALITE, MUSLIM, ORISA, CHRISTIAN, NATIONALIST, SPIRITUAL NATIONALIST, LIBERAL, CONSERVATIVE...IS THER REALLY A WE? 

IS MANCHILD IN THE PROMISED LAND A MAMMA'S BOY?

*YOUNGBLOOD HAS CHANGED...HE'S MORE ADVENTUROUS, MORE SUCCESSFUL, MORE INVENTIVE...BUT HE'S MORE VIOLENT, HE IS MORE SACRIFICIAL OF SELF, HE'S BOTH MORE EFEMINATE AND MORE MACHO ***HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH OG IS DAMAGED AS A RESULT IN AN ESSENTIAL SHIFT IN SOCIETY ( AFFIRMATIVE ACTION ) THAT LEFT HIS PARENTS AT ODDS AND IN COMPETITION FINANCIALLY.


*WOULD YOU WANT YOUR KID TO BE A NERD OR A "G"?


*WHAT SLPIT THE FAMILY?...WAS IT THE UNEQUAL SYSTEM OR PURSUIT OF THE MIGHTY DOLLAR? 


*BLACK CULTURE IS A COMMODITY & A GLOBAL REALITY NOW...BUT WAS IT WORTH THE PRICE?

AY-YO!...WHAT'S WITH THE BEEF?

*WHY ARE AFRICAN AMERICANS SO ANTAGONISTIC TOWARDS WACH OTHER??? WUSS WIT DA BEEF?


*THE HOOD CODE IS A TRIBE MENTALITY / SURVIVAL MECHANISM AND A METHOD OF ENGRAINED PROTEST. IS IT BENEFICIAL IN THE LONG RUN TO OUR CULTURE AS IT IS NOW? 

*IS THE THE BLACK CONSTRUCT WORKING? ( BEING BLACK / BEING REAL / HOW BLACK IS BLACK? )

***WHY NOT "AFRICAN AMERICAN" AS OUR ETHNIC TITLE OVER THE COLOR CODED "BLACK"  FOR EVERYONE OF AFRICAN DESCENT???***


*OG ORIGINALLY MEANT "ORIGINAL GOD"...NOT ORIGINAL GANGST'A ( ORIGINAL GOD CONSCIOUSNESS )   SON!!!!.OLD DUDE?...OLD NIGA? ...THAT'S THAT NIGA WHO LAID YOUR FOUNDATION COMPLETELY - PUT SOME "SPECT ON THAT "G"! WE INVENTED, LIVED, WORKED OR CHANGED "EVERYTHING" A YOUNG BLOOD CAN IMAGINE TODAY. YOUNG BLOOD RAN WITH IT, BUT WE MADE HIS SHOES FIT WHERE OURS DIDN'T BECAUSE WE GAVE HIM THE GIFT OF INDEPENDENCE AND ***WORD***


*THE AGE OF THE SINGLE MOTHER IS PARTLY ROOTED IN THE 1964 CIVIL RIGHTS ACT. IT USHERED IN THE AGE OF AFFIRMATIVE ACTION WHICH MEANT THAT WOMEN AND MEN HAD MORE BUSNESS AND WAGE WORK OPPORTUNITIES...SO WOMEN LEFT THE HOME IN NUMBERS TO SEEK THE DOLLAR FOR THEMSELVES. THERE WAS COMPETITION WITH THE TRADITIONAL BREAD WINNER - THE MAN! ...MEN ALSO HAD MORE WORK AND THEREFORE MORE TRAVEL LIKE WOMEN...WHAT HAPPENED TO THE KIDS?
