WHAT IS THE TRUE VALUE IN A REPATRIATED NAMES?


Why should Black / African-Americans that are descendants from slaves repatriate names from their original lands, AFRICA?

During slavery thousands of our fore-fathers and mothers were offer the opportunity to enter payment agreements for their freedom from slave master’s who own them like “property.” Not to have adopted or take back our Black / African names after being Emancipated from slavery is a gross oversight of our fore-fathers and mothers. Reclaiming their stolen and lost identities evidently did not enter their minds. Doing so would have cognitively DECLARED TRUE INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM FROM AMERICAN SLAVERY.

Presently, now 150 years have passed from the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 and the 1865 enactment of the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that abolished slavery in the US. State and County Governments persist today in charging the descendants of x slaves court and legal fees to legally change adopted White / European names. IT’S AS THOUGH WE ARE STILL SLAVES. FORCED TO BUY OUR FREEDOM FROM SLAVE OWNERS.

Why is it today the descendants of slaves wishing to reclaim their lost and stolen legacy are legally mandated to pay court fees to change these “hand me down” adopted White / European names?  For the most part our loving parents handed these names down, but they was and many are still, blinded mentally by the racist societal conditions in America which denounces and ridicules our true African heritage and home lands. This keeps many of us dislocated from who, what, when, why and where answers and reasons for necessity of having a name designating one’s race. Particularly, Black Americans by majority stand out from other races in the American society holding another groups sir names. This matter serves as a signal to the broader society that group-wise Black Americans still do not know the value of a name, nor the value of group thinking. As it applies to other groups far more unified than present day Black Americans.

Historically, in many cases Federal Govt census workers imposed European Surnames on newly emancipated slaves during and after the 1870 Census Population Count. Prior census collecting data reveals slaves were not assigned each names. Newly freed man and woman would sign an X following first names given mostly by loving mothers who birth them.

The lack of a desire and knowledge of many Black Americans to reclaim their names for the sake of heritage and a symbol of independents from former slave masters is a non-debatable issue between Black Americans. Personally I’m bother by this because the majority continue in misguided and misplaced pride in having European names. This issue is open to much ongoing disagreements between concerned and non-concerned Black Americans. The value of original names vs adopted European names by x American slaves in their prodigy remaining in America appears a closed case.

Anyone advocating the issue most time is ignore and brushed to the side in conversations. Those few, but many that repatriate their self-identity are condemned by family and group members in some way or another that isolates awareness of holding a “proper name” as radical(s) or non-conforming group thinker which is not to bad a title. Considering the overall status / standings of Black Americans in the American society.

We as a group in the American society should by all sound reasoning place high value in holding a formal “repatriated” name.

 

 

 

“We Must Deal With Them”


ryan1

For one moment let’s break Paul Ryan statement down to its roots. Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan stated… “We have got this tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular…” Obviously this is a broad statement considering the fact there are 19,355 cities in the US, but it leaves room for denial on his part if called to the carpet to answer if he is race baiting with his Tea Party white constituent political base.

Paul Ryan offered clarification to this statement by including specifically “men.” Continue…”of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value of the culture of work.”

Paul Ryan clarifies cities with the term “inner cities” which refers to the central section of a city where mostly ” Poor and middle-class Black Americans live.” Inner City is code term for America’s white racist. Believing that Black people only live there, destroying the landscape and real estate once occupied by their white grandfathers and mothers. Paul

Paul Ryan stated specifically… “in our inner cities.”

Paul Ryan himself was raise in a small white suburban town called Janesville, WI. But, Ryan believes like other (tens of millions) arrogant white people that they are rightful owners to all the land of these United States.

He did not specify which cities in particular are a “tailspin of culture.” Are we to think and believe that P.R., believes only Black men live in inner cities? Did anyone ask that specific question? Although white men living in inner cities are more than likely employed than Black men.

How do we know for a certainty he was specifically referring to Black men exclusively?

Because obviously White men and Black men cultures are different as the two shades black and white.

HE WAS NOT REFERRING TO WHITE CULTURE.
NOR DOES HE COMPREHEND THE IMPACT OF TRUE BLACK CULTURE, NOT WHAT HE READS ABOUT OR HEAR ABOUT IN MAINSTREAM MEDIA OUTLETS.

Paul Ryan fully understands U.S. cities culture and race demographics. Ryan majored in economics and political science or “Political Snake Charming,” at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.

Paul Ryan race baiting statement ends in part suggesting or warning to his white constituents… “There is a real culture problem here that has to be dealt with.”

What does he mean by “deal with…?”

Other than increasing the present and past Black male hyper-incarceration rates, illicit drugs dealings, gangs and gun violence across America. I can not imagine a worse groups social-culture condition(s), except Jewish people sufferings during Nazi Germany attempted genocide of them. Or may be Paul Ryan is signaling a return to American good old Institution of Slavery.

What do you think Black America?

Sounds to me like James Brown Hit song, “The Big Payback” lyrical lines sung in Paul Ryan voice… “I going to deal with you. I want revenge, my patience thin. I want revenge.”

Finally, Black People need to “Wake Up, Unify and Do For Self. Just as White People have done and continue to here in America the past 400 years!

 

Exposing the Milwaukee Machine Misuse of Federal Grant Funds Targeted to Fight Poverty


The Milwaukee Machine led by Tom Barrett and his Citizen Elected Crony Leadership and Private Business Cronies, could not sway The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to overlook Federal policies and rules this time around. 

I wonder why this particular incident raised eyebrows in Washington D.C.? Is Washington D.C. wakening up to Milwaukee City Govt misuse of Federal Grants? Hopefully so!

Specifically, Federal grants intended on alleviating impoverished conditions in Milwaukee. A City Audit would / will revealed millions and millions of grant dollars never making it to poor communities in Milwaukee. It also would have shown most of the Federal grant dollars targeted to poor communities go to surrounding communities, private business residing outside the City awarded contracts (City Procurements) by Milwaukee City Hall Community Development Commission. These outside contractors employees are primarily white and do not live in the City of Milwaukee.

City of  Milwaukee Federal grant dollars received over the decades have benefited Wisconsin Whites citizens greatly more than it has benefited Wisconsin Black citizens. Someone proves me wrong! Only an audit of City and County books can dispel this belief which publicly presented by the Local Chapter of The NAACP. Though these charges have floated in the Black community by concerned citizens for many years with no redress when presented to elected public officials.

Obvious proof of the misuse of Federal Grant Fundings, by Elected City Leadership is mounting researched data and reports outlining the ill social living conditions of the Black residents living in the City of Milwaukee. Plus often Nationally and Abroad reports and studies. Findings outlining Milwaukee, WI. ill rankings in social living indicators, e.g. Crime rates, Black male incarceration and unemployment rates, Education, Infant Deaths when compared to other Cities demographics in the Nation.

No comparison needed in my opinion. The proof is in the pudding.

A People Economic Health Determines its Level of Poverty. Milwaukee’s Black Community is Bleeding Out!

Obviously, what’s telling about this demographic map is the Black community is color green. But what matters in our society than where or what community American citizens resided is the flow of Economics-v-Poverty. The color green represents the demographics of Milwaukee Black Community. Dollar bill green in fact!

Suppose we viewed and used this map to track Black dollars which this society fears Unity of Black dollars ever connecting on behalf of advancement of our group first.

It would most definitely show Black dollars flowing out and into the surrounding blue colored white communities. Dollars leaving Black communities is responsible for and comparable to the level of poverty experienced in Milwaukee Black Communities and other “same” communities in these United States of America.

Milwaukee and surrounding cities are prime examples; That Black people disunity is a “primary” cause of the level of poverty experienced by their / our group when compared to White and Brown Communities in the City of Milwaukee and Milwaukee County. Sadly, conscience and cultural aware Black people must admit, as often stated in our circles; “We Are Our Own Worst Enemy.”

GROUP DESPAIR IN THE AMERICAN SOCIETY


Why is it (rhetorical speaking) that we as a racial group in the American society only organize after civil rights and due process of the law been violated by societal systems and representatives active in miscarriages of justice and fairness against our group and members? When will enough be enough?

Group unity with personal member’s loyalty to the group preservation is the “Power Base” not established yet, but often attempted in the Black American Experience. The Power of Unity would prevent the constant aggression, oppression and double standard social targeting against Black / Brown Americans. America is not a color-blind society, nor for that matter is the world.

Skin color blindness is a pipe-dream filled with false hopes, e.g. “Can we all get along? American and World History couple with present day societal events between the races with shared various ideologies answers that question with a resounding NO! Until humanity over-all accepts the new rationale or ideology of One Race–The Human Race; It is imperative that our group in particular unite separately in the American Society. On all social fronts active in every social institution in the American Society. Or we will perish or stay oppressed and complicity responsible for our continue group degeneration.

Our group integration into the American society is aggressive to the dominant society dictated by Constitutional Laws & Amendments. The dominant members / group society refuses overtly and covertly to accept Black Americans as equals in the society. Regardless of their US Constitution and added Civil Rights protection amendments. The 149 year old American experiment of integrating the Black man and woman into the American dominant society has failed.

The dominant members of the American society control all social institutions. Active with that control is their ingrained and perpetuated group prejudice against Black Americans. No civil laws, public policies and rules written in the past or present have affected or changed this socially ingrained prejudice against Black Americans.

Black Americans, if you continue as a group with foolhardy complicity in your group degeneration, you will perish and stay oppressed in the American Society. It is imperative for these times that Black Americans unite to end the social ills that plague their communities.
