Re: The End of the Black American Narrative
In Response To: Re: The End of the Black American Narrative ()
But back to my point,the "Black Studies "courses in the 60's did not teach these facts but sought out and tayght material while perhaps true had really very little relevance to our experience in America.And that is something we as a community,society need to address and demand answers why and critize those Blacks,African Americans,whoever led us astray and down a useless path.Which brings us to a fundamental issue i believe exists in our community one which i believe is a strong impediment to our progree;and unwillingness to critically assess positions put forward by other Blacks and a willingness to accept destrutive message put forth by other Blacks without protesting.The destructiveness of "gangsta rap" for example.We need to be able to rationally discuss the pros and cons; but to often any such discussion,debate winds up in name calling.I only use that as an illustration there are many more issues that end up the same way.
