The Need For Black Re-Education.

As you and I look at the world which is spinning aimlessly in orbit, and in around the circle of infinity, we ask ourselves this question. Of all the shapes and forms which it could have assumed, why the shape of a circle? And the answer within the question says, it's because life's energy is perfectly kept in balance when moving in rotation. This is also how life equalizes its differences. They say that all men are created equal irrespective of their skin tone, gender,creed and culture. Thus deserving to be treated with equality, respect and dignity. However we are separated by an invariable differences, life's differences.

To begin with, what's equality?

Equality is a state or quality of being equal in everything. Like having the same privileges, status and rights. However when it comes to the human race, we see all kinds of people. With each distinctive group of people having their own differences, and differences agree to disagree. One thing we need to understand is that, having a political, social and economical rights, do not make any of us the same. Because we humans are too different to be the same, let alone be treated with equality. That's why the notion of equal rights could be considered more or less a fallacy. It's theoretically applicable, but not practically feasible.

And here starts the ideology of racism.

Racism is a belief that, race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities. And that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race. The superiority aside, I'm of the idea that, the ideology of racism is based on race preservation more so than anything. And that race segregation prevents unnecessary racial tension. Even nature bears testimony to this, because birds of the same feather flock together. Which goes to show that, not only is racial separation advisable, but it's also natural. In essence, Black people have no business marrying White people, just as White people have no business marrying Black people. The obvious reason being that, both individual races do differ in type as humans.

Let's take for example a dog and a cat. Both are part of the animal kingdom alright, but they do differ in type. So never would you witness a dog and cat having a sexual intercourse with each other. It just don't happen that way. Now we could throw in the DNA discoveries of the human family, and use its similarities as an excuse to mix the different type of races. However we would have to understand that, having a common DNA pattern or structure, does not under any circumstance mean or even suggest that we are all equal, and therefore should mix. Because we are not and never will be.

For example, when it comes to diseases, Blacks are more vulnerable and susceptible to certain diseases like tuberculosis, prostate cancer and sickle cell. Whilst diseases like Cardiovascular and Cancer tend to be most prevalent amongst Whites. Almost two years ago, one of the world's leading figures or giants on the field of biology. An eminent scientists by the name of James D Watson. Co-discoverer of the DNA helix and winner of the 1962 Nobel Price in medicine, created a racial fire-storm in Britain. When he said that, he was "inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa" because "all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours — whereas all the testing says not really."

Whereas this testing might have indicated a difference in the intelligence capacity of both Whites and Blacks, it doesn't in any way suggest that, the presence of difference between the two should be confused with either deficiency or even efficiency, in the mental capacity on both sides of the race. And this is something which this eminent scientist should have known and understood.

To me a Black person is both the physical, and spiritual embodiment of the totality of the powers of his/her natural habitat. Which means that, the Black person is also the embodiment of the economic, scientific and rhythmic possibilities of his/her natural habitat. The black person doesn't need to wander off to make him/herself a home somewhere foreign. Because the Black person already has a home, where she/he is the appointed custodian of his/her natural habitat. In all honesty, the black person was not borne to need, want or even to rely on somebody----somewhere to sustain him/her either financially or else. The root cause behind the Black person's incessant retrogression and problems is that, he/she has been wrongly educated. And this type of education has left the black person both emotionally and mentally paralysed.

So unless the Black person re-educate him/herself anew, like James D Watson said, the prospect of Africa or even that of the Blackman/woman would be inherently gloomy indeed. But then how do we go about righting the wrong? How do we go about re-educating ourselves, and isn't it too late?
