There aren't very many people left in the world who will not agree that Black America has some serious issues.
Not just "issues" like everybody else, but some very serious mental and emotional health, as well as socio-economic problems that are directly related to racism.
Toure of MSNBC used the words "The Power of Whiteness" to answer a female who stated that "her ancestors came here with nothing and made it work" (not). His word covered VOLUMES of truth about the impact of skin-color racism on Black people around the world; Black people of all shades, ethnicities, and backgrounds. Impossible as it is to write a book in six words or less, Toure achieved this in FOUR: The Power of Whiteness.
No one in the world can claim that bigotry and prejudice -even when it comes from Black people- has affected and impacted them the way racism has impacted us.
Last time, we talked about "Plantation Picaninnies": The subjection, objectification and abuse of Black women.
We already know what happened to us -we've heard it over and over- but there is a bigger picture about what we do to ourselves that self-implodes and hampers and impedes our own social and moral progress.
Why? What's wrong? What will it take before we "get it," or will someone else give it us first?
Tune in for the next segment of "Plantation Picaninnies": Black People Need to Come Clean.
