The importance in teaching Black History on a regular basis condemns the reality “Why it is not taught year round?” Not teaching Black History year around contributes greatly to our “Black Children” not realizing who they fully are as a race / people and their historical rightful and proper role in developing civilizations the past 10 millenniums.
Who or what benefits from not teaching Black History year round? Does it matter to White aggressors e.g. KKK members, Nazi / Skin Heads, or simply stated White racist that support the American Institution of Racism? Does it matter to elected Congressional Leaders that have the power to regulate the American Education System? Obviously it must have great benefit to the American society that Black History is not part of its students everyday institutional education.
The importance of not teaching Black history to Black children is a matter of deep concern to systemic White aggression against the darker people of our planet. Not teaching Black History year round points more to the “causation” of historical and present day White aggression against dark skin people. Repeating the necessity of truth in teaching Black History year round to political leaders and education overseer’s of a system established on racism, enslavement, and oppression and suppression of darker people on the planet is comparable to beating a dead horse in an attempt to ride its back.
The importance of insuring Black History properly taught year round rightfully and respectfully falls on the shoulders of Black parents, and the Collective Black Race. Important because “us” teaching it to all our children during their hyper – impressionable years (3 to 24) is a path to deliverance from living an oppressive and suppressed existence under White supremacy, aggression, and control. Particularly concerning Black people in America have the political tools and resources ready and available to carry out whatever social changes the group desired targeted and focused civil advocacy to change or amend backed by the American Constitution the law of this land.
The problem with Black people and the Black race is we continue to send or place our children in public, private, and religious educational institutions which focus historical events and achievements in a positive light on White people / race aggression points of view and references pertinent to developing civilizations and cultures.
Who really shoulder’s the blame today that Black History is not taught fully and truthfully supported by contextual and documented historical records tracing events and developments of human civilization the past 2000 years? Where is the learning institution that focuses academia advancement in Black History centered curriculum(s)? It is not White people responsibility to teach Black people, nor common White people truth perspectives and knowledge about the Black race worldly achievements and contributions to society.
No excuses are justified these days for the Black man and woman not having nor teaching their children proper and honest Black History.
The Black Race / People of our planet do not live under one single society where White’s hold us in captivity or bounded slavery with our hands and feet tied in chains and shackles.
The so-call shackles and chains on our minds is that which bounds us (Black people) to the greater White society will in directing and controlling its society relates to “emotional fear,” in too many Black Americans minds living today. What is fear? A wise man of today states, “Fear is the evidence, of things yet unseen.” Psychology Today explains; “Fear is a vital response to physical and emotional danger—if we didn’t feel it, we couldn’t protect ourselves from legitimate threats. However, often we fear situations that are far from life-or-death, and thus hang back for no good reason. Traumas or bad experiences can trigger a fear response within us that is hard to quell. Yet exposing ourselves to our personal flaws in character is the best way to move past them”… see http://www.psychologytoday.com/basics/fear.
I will explore later these two well thought out definitions of fear as they pertains to the Black American Experience.
