    HOTEP KENYATTA: Language is a tool of oppression/freedom

    in Education

    Hotep Kenyatta (Dr Shaka Blaka) speaks re:  Language can be a tool of oppression. Clearly few people want to connect themselves to Africa? Why.  Because from the 7th century AD onwards, powerful scholars took a passage from Jewish ancient holy texts and misrepresented it as though "dark skin is a curse from God, who cursed Noah's son Ham for seeing his father naked and drunk, etc"     Since then, there have been various efforts to hide the black/african nature of all civilization/humanity, and language has not been spared the racists/white nationalists sword of destruction.  (NOTE: Let's also remember that an ancient African, or Native South American language may be represented in Latin Script (letters, characters) but that this never means that the original language is Latin/Roman. Only the writing style used to represent the ancient African, etc sounds/spoken language.  People get this confused so often, and brainwashing is hard to fix when people don't know they're brainwashed...!


    Also listen in for how the concept of ETYMOLOGY is used in racist way.

    TALK REAL SOLUTIONS: A critique of Tyonne, Supreme and the Black media

    in Education

    I spoke on TRS (Talk real solutions) for the last time on March 21, 2015.   Why was it the last time. Because the show's hosts refuse to let their emotional rants, and disjointed arguments die.  As opposed to being another place to bring people together who are concerned about the death and destruction of black people, sadly TRS typically is a place to rant, without any tangible solutions. Worse, Tyronne and Supreme, although they do often make great points, allow their emotions and lack of true understanding of History to taint their rants.  Further, they target and BULLY certain callers that may not agree with their (often weak) flawed arguments and proceed to use ad hominem attacks, etc on such callers. How is this related to black media generally. Black media usually (not always ) lacks intellect, stimulation and real organization and professionalism.   And it hates to be critiqued, and has a I AM SUPERIOR complex. Do I have faults. Yes.   But I try to address them, and own up to them.  Sadly TRS, and most black media and hosts, refuse to even back up when their research is limited and their positions flawed. It will be difficult to help empower black people when so many black celebrities, radio hosts, etc live for FAME and bullying as opposed to black power.   I hope that this messages reaches people and that Tyronne and Supreme decide to grow up and be more civil Until then, I refuse to waste time on TRS, even though there are still some very good people that go there to chat, I refuse to be driven into disjointed discussions, and limited intellectual dialog.   I will continue to seek ways to ensure that black people, any oppressed group of humans, get justice, knowledge, power. I don't have all answers but I sure do my best with the resources at my disposal, to try and help.  POWER TO THE PEOPLE.  Self defense not blind violence and ignorance. Hotep Kenyatta

    in Politics

    Short Kansas political news commentaries  interspersed between audio segments.


    "New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "resigned sighs") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.More details, photos, nice links, & other good stuff on the show's Web site: http://newworldnotes.blogspot.com


    Adam Curtis's new documentary, condensed & adapted to radio by Kenneth Dowst. An interesting and entertaining look at the histories and politics of Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and the U.S. since the 1940s.


    PART ONE It's about the history and politics of Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and the U.S. since 1946. About the many failures of reformers--American, Russian, and Afghan alike--to remake and modernize Afghanistan. It's about shrewd and cynical calculations by Saudi and American leaders--who promote development and stability in Saudi Arabia by exporting Saudi extremist Islam (Wahhabism) abroad--including to Afghanistan.


    PART TWO looks at the failed Russian attempts to reform Afghanistan in the 1980s ... the failed American attempts to reform Afghanistan since 2001 ... the transfer of political power in the West from governments to defense industries and the banks

    PART THREE shows the corruption, conflicts, complexity, warlordism, and ever-shifting local alliances of Afghan society today. And it shows the naivete and ignorance of the English and American occupying forces (and of the politicians who dispatched them).
