As we enter into black history month we will begin with examining the Willie Lynch phenomena, its psychological and social effects on the African American race. This manifesto of “How to make a slave" is said by some to have been in publication since 1712, while others believe it’s a fraud that has been created since the age of the internet. The letter states:

" I shall assure you that DISTRUST IS STRONGER THAN TRUST AND ENVY STRONGER THAN ADULATION, RESPECT OR ADMIRATION. The Black slaves after receiving this indoctrination shall carry on and will become self-refueling and self-generating for HUNDREDS of years, maybe THOUSANDS."

Whether written decades or in recent years the truth is fear, distrust, and envy are salient markers of the psycho-socialization among African Americans unlike any other race in America. The purpose of this letter was to explain how to keep the slave body strong, but to take the mind and cause psychological weakness. This phenomena may contribute to mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and substance abuse in many African Americans that go unchecked.

COME get on the COUCH!!!
