I get this all the time from Europeans when we discuss with them that homosexuality was a foreign idea to African culture. That since African culture was Nature based; homosexuality doesn’t fit their Ying-Yang or their concept of the Ankh. To counter, they’ll cite monkeys and giraffes as having homosexual encounters, even fish and toads. They must keep trying to make the world think that their behavior is universal behavior except when members of a non Western culture are being over criminalized or uncivilized, then that can be a “particular behavior” to that cultural group. In fact, it can lead to a rational reason for their conquest or destruction.
So we really need to get the academics cracking on this one. We need to do the research to find out if societal serial killers are truly a Western phenomenon and like a litany of other behaviors, see if they are transferred through the dominant culture’s social systems to other members of the society. See, if we find out that this behavior is born of European cultural society, and then maybe we have our first real crack in their shrouded cultural imperialism. Not only that, this realization can be a solid first step leading to their cultural healing as well, and judging from their history, as well as Iraq and Afghanistan, it can come none too soon.
Here are a few articles about Africans and serial killings.
“Following repeated cases of serial killing over the last decade, South Africa is now a world leader in the psychological profiling of multiple murderers. South Africa has one of the highest murder rates in the world, with more than 55 killings per 100,000 people last year. That compares with levels of around six per 100,000 in the United States, and under three per 100,000 in the UK."
Interesting that I could only find serial killers in South Africa, even in Zimbabwe, where black oppression was just as great, I didn’t find any.
The rest of Africa=0 except for those at war for one reason or another.
So I’d say the cultural significance of social serial killers would be that since serial killers are a product of power for control, which is the European’s cultural modus operandi; while the African’s culture was Nature based, then maybe there are other cultural behaviors that we should examine to determine if they are Nature based (African) or Power for Controlled based (European) and how they affect each of us.

What if I drew a picture would that help? Here’s the definition of the Western Cultural World.
Classical definition of the Western world: Most of the depicted countries in blue were predominately influenced by Graeco-Roman culture and Christian and Enlightenment ideals and/or shaped by strong Western European immigration and settlement
The most significant points would be that there are NO blue countries (outside of Europe) on the above map that have black or non white people in charge after they were killed off or colonized. (I’d argue that still includes South Africa). Black people aren’t Greeks (well except the Negros who run around with Greek letters tattooed on their bodies and minds). Black people didn’t participate in the European’s “Enlightenment,” albeit some “intellectual” Black ideas were factored in. Black people didn’t develop the West’s Christian religion, but Black concepts about Nature were desecrated to make Jesus their reality and then we sure as hell plugged into it.
What I’m pointing to here is, Black folks adopted and adapted themselves to the Western Cultural World, and we are NOT HISTORICALLY WESTERN PEOPLE. Since this is true, what the fuck is going on? Why are we so intent on being “Western”? Are we crazy trying to put a round peg in a square hole while the real Western People stay organized and laugh their heads off at how silly we are?
Why isn’t this clear? Why don’t Black people (Africans included) want to embrace African cultural thought? Could it be that our ancestors’ culture has been so adulterated by Western and Arab influences that it has become too odious even for us? Why can’t we put as much effort into revitalizing and building what is truly ours as we do in trying to buy the latest and greatest widget? White supremacy, white media, white nothing controls that decision, only our own minds. So what the fuck is wrong with us? I’d say we don’t want the pain and heartache of reality and for that, I’d say we don’t truly love our children.
* Negros are historical African people who have been assimilated, adapted, or adopted into European or other non African culture without consideration of their historical African cultural essence before contact. Although many Negroes (and Africans) have varying degress of European (or Arab) ancestry, they still shouldn't ignore their African cultural base, especially if they feel different levels of alienation in this culture. For example, not unlike the Mexican who ignores his Indigenous self.

This morning I was riding down some strip mall highway in Delaware and came to a traffic light. I looked over at the driver next to me and saw this 40ish looking black man. He was wearing sun glasses, a cowboy hat, clean shaven and I think he had a bald head. He appeared to be what I'd consider an all around clean cut Negro. He was driving one of those cars that are suppose to go fast, the ones built low to the ground with a tailpipe the size of a basketball. What really caught my eye was in his back window he had written in bold red letters, U.S. Army Retired. I thought he looked a little young, but then again that’s from where I sit. He also had the usual stickers on his car, Support Our Troops and the MIA black ribbon. I thought to myself, any conscious, non-Christian, African centered African in America would say, there’s one lost Negro.
But at the next light some thing else meandered in. I looked in the mirror at my aged face, locked hair, and unemployable black ass and asked, who’s the lost one here? It occurred to me, if we were the same age etc., who’d likely get more respect from most people? Who’d make people feel more comfortable, who would they fear? All things being equal, who’d likely be hired first? Who would get the social kudos? In all likelihood, whose opinion would be made more serious, appropriate? Not mine, I’d be considered “militant, a nationalist, a trouble maker, esoteric,” at best, or just plain crazy at worst.
Why is that? Why would someone who really wishes (and works at it) that Black people become self-sufficient, independent, and respected, be least respected by Black people? On the other hand, judging from appearance and bumper stickers, some one who has a 98% chance of being Christian and adamantly supports those who support systems that locks up too many Black men, discriminates against Blacks in employment and other services, develops negative social stereotypes, controls their voice, while both historically and contemporarily demeaning things black, get more respect from, not just White folk, but Black folk as well? Why would they fit in among Blacks and I’d be considered the one lost, out of touch?
It makes me want to give up. It makes me wonder if it’s just smarter to be critically lazy and culturally dependent. Hell, is it psychologically easier to just surrender your spirit to some mystical god within national borders? Is it mentally healthy to just confine your thinking to American Idol? What advantage is there to not fitting in? Bottom line, maybe dude knew something I didn’t and in fact, I am the crazy one.

Here’s a flight of fancy for you that I’m sure not too many people think about. I’ve often railed against European culture because I think it’s extremely destructive to the planet and Black people, who have a different kind of power and knowledge stored in their ancestral genes that can alter its destructive course, if they know the course. Black people and People of Color must stop taking for granted that European cultural thought is the know all to end all.
I find it fascination how we go about our daily lives and never make the connection between ideas that are particular to European cultural thought and behavior and ones that are not. We take for granted that their ideas are common to all cultures and people. For example, look at how much emphasis and importance non Europeans place on things artificial without even knowing it.
Accepting the artificial as a replacement for Nature is in itself destructive thought and behavior. It subverts what is Natural to benefit European cultural greed and subsequent rape of the planet. By placing emphasis on the artificial, shows contempt for Nature. As an example, why do we need to save trees when we have plastics? Global warming is a myth, just a theory. How can “non progressive” Black laborers be useful in the information age when we have computers? In order to make others accept the thought that the artificial is universally normal, they must be made to first embrace the most important European concept next to god, and that’s the idea of Progress. The idea of Progress is just another component of European cultural imperialism. Understand, not natural evolutionary Progress per se, but the idea that Progress is necessary for our survival, that we would somehow parish if we didn’t “Progress.”
The other component that is necessary for the artificial to subvert Nature is materialism. What is artificially created must make money for the capitalist. Both Capitalism (Not trade or barter) and Progress, as a cultural way of life, is unique to the Europeans’ cultural world view. If we drew a line (as in linear thought), each time we created something new and artificial, what was functional or subsequent is discarded, thus becoming a pollutant or more resources used to deplete the planet, all for profit. That’s European Progress, resource depletion and pollution in creation of the “artificial.”
Today we have “artificial” sweeteners, hair, breast, limbs, medicines, emotions, personality, intelligence, etc. and coming soon, humans. The idea of overcoming Nature or that Nature is somehow our enemy because it has the power to destroy the European is a reoccurring theme in European cultural thought and behavior. As mention in other essays, the core of European thought and behavior is power for control over others which includes Nature. Creating things artificial is the realization of that thought. Embracing as conventional, concepts of Progress, Capitalism, and Power over Nature, will prove to be deadly.

One reason I advocate that conscious Blacks leave America and build a viable community elsewhere is because if we need to go head to head with the “dominate” society for a fair share of resources, we’d lose big time. But I don’t think that would happen. The primary reason is because we don’t have enough conscious compatriots who feel being black is important. Further, many don’t even know what being CULTURALLY Black entails except having a dark hue. (See NAACP “Image” Awards).
If we wanted to seriously challenge white supremacy so we could stop complaining about our condition and how bad white folks are, Blacks would have to be a tight group and focused on black advancement. (Blacks, are those who are aligned with and descendants of Africans in America.) But that has increasingly grown into impossibility since the first water hoses in 1959. Integration, public schooling, sharing of the same god with your oppressor, no self sustaining economic base to protect our children, and historical cultural debasement, which finally lead to our doing it to ourselves, (see hip hop, etc.) has made sure we stay on the bottom rung of social progress. These factors, in the age of information, (we don’t control the information or the education of our youth) are in place to assure white supremacy stays king.
When Black people try to attain levels of consciousness and teach others, our voice is silenced in so many ways by whites and their black gatekeepers. You know the black ones we revere as having “made” it, but never think how they “made” it. The ones we think are down with “blackness”, but are allowed a voice that echoes white supremacy; the ones whose connections to white supremacy are well hidden. For example, and this is by far not the only one, can you imagine a black person on a morning talk show with a huge Black audience clowning around, acting “black” (whatever the debasement de jure maybe), offering comic relief, talking about who’s fucking whom or who’s running around with whom, and NEVER discussing issues that are truly germane to our upward mobility AS A PEOPLE? Reason, they’d lose market share because blacks are not interested in “political black stuff” on a daily basis. So we clamor to this country ass fools side. This is white supremacy at work.
We really need to stop! We really need to get in the game regardless of the consequences. We really need to demand reparations and leave. It may not be comfortable where we go, but if we are diligent and open to the blacks already there, it will be our chance to build our society. We need reparations to give us the resources to build because if there wasn’t enslavement, subsequent discrimination, and Jim Crow, we wouldn’t need them at all. We need reparations because wherever we go, we’ll be the “outsiders” and we need our own economic base. We must bring something viable to the table. Those of us, who can’t leave the white man’s tyranny, his decadence, his god, or his white supremacy, stay!

Somehow I get disturbed when I read black folks telling other black folks to show them their Blacker than me card, like it’s a “get out of jail free” card or something. I understand the inference, but on a deeper level, it wouldn’t be such a bad idea to have one. But the obvious problem would be what are the criteria for being so called, “Black”?
From the mind of Shabaka, being limited by having lightly melanin skin that other blacks have to sometimes asked, “Are you Black,” let me put it to you this way. Black is a color. Race is a social construct. Neither has any NATURAL connection to ones genetic blood line. The only things that come close are culture and ancestry. So right away, if we are to be honest and clear thinking, one can’t be “Blacker” than anyone because color and race are really meaningless. One can be more melanin challenged, but that’s a consequence of natural genetics and they are tricky little bastards. However giving agency to culture and ancestry is not tricky if one can accept facts on their face value and not propaganda.
Now that I have hopefully brought into question the notion of color and race being a criteria for owning a “Blacker than thou Card, let me address the only things left, culture and ancestry.
Culture is formed by a particular group living for a long time in a particular environment. In my view there are different levels of culture. I’d call them in descending order, pop culture, nominal culture, and deep culture. Pop culture is the most fluid. It borders on fad. Nominal culture is that which is dictated by a dominant society and enforced as the standard. Deep culture is the culture that’s coded into ones world view. Examples of each would be Hip Hop, the Ballet, and Communalism.
The aspect of culture that is most difficult to detect is its Deep Culture. In scientific terms, it would be akin to detecting the evolutionary biology of our brain.* If humans can give agency to the traits from our early evolution, why can’t some of those traits be cultural as the following essay suggest.
"The Reptilian Brain. The archipallium or primitive (reptilian) brain, or "Basal Brian", called by MacLean the "R-complex", includes the brain stem and the cerebellum, is the oldest brain. It consists of the structures of the brain stem - medulla, pons, cerebellum, mesencephalon, the oldest basal nuclei - the globus pallidus and the olfactory bulbs. In animals such as reptiles, the brain stem and cerebellum dominate. For this reason it is commonly referred to as the "reptilian brain". It has the same type of archaic behavioural programs as snakes and lizards. It is rigid, obsessive, compulsive, ritualistic and paranoid, it is "filled with ancestral memories". It keeps repeating the same behaviours over and over again, never learning from past mistakes (corresponding to what Sri Aurobindo calls the mechanical Mind). This brain controls muscles, balance and autonomic functions, such as breathing and heartbeat. This part of the brain is active, even in deep sleep.
The Limbic System (Paleomammalian brain) . In 1952 MacLean first coined the name "limbic system" for the middle part of the brain. It can also be termed the paleopallium or intermediate (old mammalian) brain. It corresponds to the brain of most mammals, and especially the earlier ones. The old mammalian brain residing in the limbic system is concerned with emotions and instincts, feeding, fighting, fleeing, and sexual behaviour. As MacLean observes, everything in this emotional system is either "agreeable or disagreeable". Survival depends on avoidance of pain and repetition of pleasure.When this part of the brain is stimulated with a mild electrical current various emotions (fear, joy, rage, pleasure and pain etc) are produced. No emotion has been found to reside in one place for very long. But the Limbic system as a whole appears to be the primary seat of emotion, attention, and affective (emotion-charged) memories. Physiologically, it includes the the hypothalamus, hippocampus, and amygdala. It helps determine valence (e.g., whether you feel positive or negative toward something, in Buddhism referred to as vedena - "feeling") and salience (e.g., what gets your attention); unpredictability, and creative behavior. It has vast interconnections with the neocortex, so that brain functions are not either purely limbic or purely cortical but a mixture of both.
MacLean claims to have found in the Limbic system a physical basis for the dogmatic and paranoid tendency, the biological basis for the tendency of thinking to be subordinate feeling, to rationalize desires. He sees a great danger in all this limbic system power. As he understands it, this lowly mammalian brain of the limbic system tends to be the seat of our value judgments, instead of the more advanced neocortex. It decides whether our higher brain has a "good" idea or not, whether it feels true and right.
The Neocortex, cerebrum, the cortex, or an alternative term, neopallium, also known as the superior or rational (neomammalian) brain, comprises almost the whole of the hemispheres (made up of a more recent type of cortex, called neocortex) and some subcortical neuronal groups. It corresponds to the brain of the primate mammals and, consequently, the human species. The higher cognitive functions which distinguish Man from the animals are in the cortex. MacLean refers to the cortex as "the mother of invention and father of abstract thought". In Man the neocortex takes up two thirds of the total brain mass.
Although all animals also have a neocortex, it is relatively small, with few or no folds (indicating surface area and complexity and development). A mouse without a cortex can act in fairly normal way (at least to superficial appearance), whereas a human without a cortex is a vegetable.The cortex is divided into left and right hemispheres, the famous left and right brain. The left half of the cortex controls the right side of the body and the right side of the brain the left side of the body. Also, the right brain is more spatial, abstract, musical and artistic, while the left brain more linear, rational, and verbal."
Let’s say that within the Limbic System which controls the emotions, and instincts, feeding, fighting, fleeing, and sexual behavior one particular type of cultural human being took from their environment those Deep Cultural Structures (Nobles) that suited their world view and developed their societies around them. For example, the African who culturally matured in a “relaxed” warm hospitable environment where Nature provided for their needs would have time to focus on and develop their emotions, not worry about feeding themselves thus limiting fighting and also have time to enjoy their sexuality in accordance with what they were close with and respected, Nature. They would develop a sense of community and sharing as well as embrace connectivity because they needed the group to survive within Nature's bounty. The spoken Word was law. Group think!
On the other hand, the European, who culturally matured in a “hostile,” cold ice age environment would have little time to deal with their emotions (in fact they would be a hindrance for their survival), have a difficult time finding resources to feed themselves therefore fighting and weapon development for resource acquisition and control would be a prominent part of their cultural world view. Their sexuality would be confined to the warmth of their caves and because of the confinement would probably increase the opportunity for sexual “experimentation” for inter-group and/or inter-gender relationships. Therefore, they would be more aggressive, protective of their space/resources, xenophobic, technocratic, replace Nature with things artificial and develop deceptive practices for manipulation of the Word for their protection. All leading to Individual think, or at best later, the small controllable “nuclear family thinking”
Similar to the carry over from our early cerebral biological development, I’d say the humans cultural development was also coded and evolved from the environment to create such behaviors. That would mean that today, if we could find out which person would embrace which code of the aforementioned behaviors, than we could very well issue an “African or European” cultural card, depending on their embraced of their ancestral Deep Cultural Structures.
As I see it, the only hindrance to correct coding would be hypocrisy or deceit. For instance, one person from either cultural group, if they wanted to claim African status, could feign “Group think,” when their ultimate goal is to achieve individual advantage. This may be because it’s a part of their ancestral cultural thought and behavior or their own has been hidden and they have adopted another through the adaptation to foreign ideology. For those of us who can't get beyond the idea of skin color or the concept of race, this doesn’t negate the fact that we can issue a “Blacker than me” card once we learn to identify our own cultural behavior and through observation issue them to those who more closely follow their ancestral Deep Cultural Structures which ever one they may be or which ever culture they claim.
Footnote: In this reality, an Asian could be more African than a modern day African if the African has adapted, adopted, as well as practiced, another cultural thought and behavior. Remember Africans, in so called "prehistory," laid the foundation for many of today’s world cultures.

If anyone should read my blog intro and then my blog, you’ll see that my focus is within the African community and not my Native community. There’s very good reason for that decision. I suppose the most important one is that I don’t look like Tonto or Sitting Bull. See the stereotypical imagine of the “Indian” is burned into the minds of the world’s public as those of so called “Asian” ancestry. However if history is ever to be truth, you’ll see that they weren’t the only group that inhabited this land mass long before the Vikings or Columbus. But that’s white supremacy for ya.
Another reason I don’t focus on my Native ancestry is because to be considered "Indian" in America one has to be recognized by the very people that tried to kill them all off through war, disease, cultural compromise, and miscegenation. My ancestral memory and common sense tells me something is wrong that picture. It tells me what can only be left are a very confused group of “Indians”. In my opinion, their original Cultural Spirit, (similar to the Negro) has been devastated and traumatized by the onslaught of white supremacy. Plus many of the “tribes” that are “recognized” by the government are chocked full of the ancestors of those very whites. The few “pure bloods and half bloods” along with other conscious Indigenous Peoples are mostly on the “Reservations” or locked in Black bodies in the cities.
Lastly the recent decisions of the tribal counsels of the Seminole and Cherokee “tribes” to penalize or expel their "black" members clinched it for me. They are doing what has been repeated over and over historically. After contact with the whites, they either run away from the black or are subjected to genocide. Look at S.E. Asia, look at the Pacific, South America, even the pre-Columbian United States, the African is GONE!
The essay below was taken from Wikipedia. It’s historically the story of the African (WTF is a “negrito?”) and the European which is still being played out in contemporary subtle and not so subtle ways in the streets of our cities, the African Bush and our media driven living rooms.
“The Andamanese is a collective term to describe the peoples who are the aboriginal inhabitants of the Andaman Islands, located in the Bay of Bengal. The term includes the Great Andamanese, Jarawa, Onge, Sentinelese and the extinct Jangil. Anthropologically they are usually classified as Negritos, represented also by the Semang of Malaysia and the Aeta of the Philippines. They have lived on the Andaman Islands for at least 14,000 years and had very little contact with external societies for nearly all this period. This comparatively long-lasting isolation and separation from external influences is perhaps unequalled, except perhaps by the aboriginal inhabitants of Tasmania.
However, this changed in the mid-1800s after the British established penal colonies. Increasing numbers of Indian and Karen settlers arrived, encroaching on former territories of the Andamanese. This proved disastrous for many of the tribes - with no resistance to common diseases, they quickly succumbed to epidemics of pneumonia, measles and influenza. At the time of first contact with the British there were an estimated 5,000 Great Andamanese; today only 41 remain.
Today only the Sentinelese, who live exclusively on North Sentinel Island, have been able to completely maintain their independent state, resisting attempts to contact them. The Jarawa have also managed to remain substantially apart from the later colonisers and settlers; other Andamanese groups have had more extensive contacts, resulting in drastic reductions in territory and numbers, with several peoples becoming extinct altogether.
Until the 19th century, their habit of killing all shipwrecked foreigners and the remoteness of their islands prevented modification of their culture or language. Cultivation was unknown to them, and they lived off of hunting indigenous pigs, fishing, and gathering. Their only weapons were the bow, fishing nets and harpoons. Besides the aboriginal people of Tasmania , the Andamanese were the only people who in the 19th century knew no method of making fire, carefully preserving embers in hollowed-out trees from fires caused by lightning strikes”.
So given the situation of these so called “Indians” attitude towards the descendants of their own black ancestry, there’ll be no going on the warpath for me. I’ll just continue to recognize myself without the “approval” of this racist government and commune with the Spirits of my ancestors.

Some of the things that I think about are pretty bizarre. Just this morning I was looking at a link to Belize and wondering what it would be like to live in a “Black country.” Then I saw it. The head of State is Queen Elizabeth. I said damn, is there no shame for Black folks? Then a more rational thought penetrated. I asked myself how Belize, or any other “Black country,” can survive as a totally self sufficient entity in a world dominated by white supremacy? It appears they gotta play the game or wait for someone like the Chinese to change things, no efficacy.
Now I’m gonna talk about pedophiles. I told you my thinking was bizarre. I think pedophiles are sick cowards. They take advantage of weak children who don’t understand the implications of being physically and or sexually violated. They take advantage of those who don’t have the where with all, physical or mental mindset as the pedophile in order to demand an equal relationship or they don’t have the resources to defend themselves and therefore are manipulated and abused. Pedophiles assess their targets and do prey on who they perceive as weak.
That leads me to ask, Is there such a thing as a cultural pedophile? Are there cultures that were/are “childlike” when it comes to military, social, and economic violence? Are there cultures that were able to be divided and manipulated by pedophile cultures based on some cultural pedophilia unity code, like a belief system? Are there cultures who just believed that they had friends, but it turned out that those “friends” were just pedophiles raping them for their resources?
Could it be that those raped “childlike” cultures grew up thinking that they were supposed to be raped and abused because they were somehow unworthy? Could it be that under threat of violence, or a more covert action like isolation that their aggressors used “propaganda machines” to make the raped think what the rapist did was “normal” thought and behavior? I think the science of psychology (and the Nazis) has a term for this kind of phenomenon.
When children are the victims of pedophilia, they need counseling. They need to understand what happened to them and it wasn’t their fault. They need to understand that they were basically helpless when they were children. Could cultures need the same type of treatment? I wonder if Belize understands the dynamics of my idea of cultural pedophilia? I wonder if the pedophiles themselves realize that they are pedophiles and will remain as long as they don’t allow Belize, or any other cultural victim to heal, to seek counseling. (If the victim realizes they need it, which is another essay).
One such healing process for those who were culturally raped in the United States is Reparations. However my question is do the victims understand what REALLY happened to them? Can the victims create a condition that allows them to be culturally self- aware? Do the perpetrators realize that in the face of “globalization” that as many culturally self sufficient, healthy, viable groups a nation can have working together, will only make that nation stronger? Simply because different ideas and ways of doing things will give the country a renewed energy. But I’ve always said, America will choke on its racism, so if Reparations are granted, then those of conscious should leave and build elsewhere. Believe it or not Belize would be a good start if they could ever start thinking that they should save themselves instead of asking god to save the Queen or waiting for the Chinese to come to the rescue.

What’s a Social Contract when only one party is obligated to respect it? This has been the dilemma of black people in the United States from its inception. African culture is Nature’s culture, yet we are expected to forgo our ancestral connection to Nature to live in peace and unity with those whose ancestral culture downplays Nature’s role in human existence and elevates their idea of “Reason.” We are “forced” to live among a People who have some deep cultural need to embrace the concepts of Hobbes, Locke, and Rousseau; a People whose cultural world view accommodates a Social Contract as necessary to create a power hierarchy and thereby can make laws that ignore Natural instincts or other cultural people; a People who have used that hierarchy to oppressed non Europeans for their social-economic-political gain under their social contract based on their “Reason” being the primary ideal.
What are we to do when the ancestral European idea of living in a so called State of Nature, is in conflict with their cultural idea of Reason? We are a communal people, a so called “soulful” people which is Nature based. (Some of that base is still apparent even in underlying aberrant things that we created like “hip hop” or participate in like computer dating and sex) Dubois expressed similar feeling when he talked about two souls, two irreconcilable strivings living in one body. However I believe he didn’t go deep enough as to why the Negros “striving” to live peacefully and in unity with the European is still a problem today. Their Social Contract doesn’t take into account our ancestral world view because they see our native ancestral cultural longings as “primitive, childish, and in many instances, when juxtapositioned against "reason," the results can be criminal.” (See television) I find it interesting that when Europeans succumb to their "Natural instincts" and display aberrant behavior, if at all possible, it is either explained, questioned, excused, or ignored with "reason." Examples: school shootings and infanticide.
Since we don’t have the power to change or seriously incorporate our deep seeded cultural views/thoughts into the prevailing European cultural thought, we must, to our own detriment, remain a divided people. Our other choices are just as dire. We must leave or culturally die in America if things say the same. (This is a good case for Reparations).
I know many who read this will think this is malarkey. However if one can see the point I’m trying to make (please excuse the writing, this is complex), they will also see this is the cutting edge of what holds together ideas of white supremacy. This is what the European elite and intelligencia hide because if it is truly understood, it can be liberating and not just for descendants of African people. It will allow for the masses, both European and Non Euro to examine their Social Contracts with their civic systems and perhaps even write a new one that doesn’t demean Nature’s People.
The theory of the social contract is based on the assumption that we as human beings live in a state of nature which is not ideal. In order to move away from these conditions, we may enter into a contract with each other, allowing us to live in peace and unity. The theory of the social contract can be seen as a justification for the formation of the state. All members within a society are assumed to agree to the terms of the social contract by their choice to stay within the society without violating the contract; such a violation would signify a problematic attempt to return to the state of nature. It has been often noted, indeed, that social contract theories relied on a specific anthropological conception of humankind as either "good" or "evil". Thomas Hobbes (1651), John Locke (1689), and Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1762) are the most famous philosophers of contractarianism, which is the theoretical groundwork of democracy. It is also one of a few competing theoretical groundworks of liberalism, but Rousseau's social contract is often seen as conflicting with classical liberalism which stresses individualism and rejects subordination of individual liberty to the "general will" of the community. There is also an example of it in Plato's writings of Socrates in Crito when Socrates refuses to escape from jail and remains to fulfill his death sentence.
