"When we get into social amnesia - into forgetting our history - we also forget or misinterpret the history and motives of others as well as our motives. The way to learn of our own creation, how we came to be what we are, is getting to know ourselves. It is through getting to know the self intimately that we get to know the forces that shaped us as a self. Therefore knowing the self becomes a knowledge of the world. A deep study of Black History is the most profound way to learn about the psychology of Europeans and to understand the psychology that flows from their history. If we don’t know ourselves, not only are we a puzzle to ourselves; other people are also a puzzle to us as well. We assume the wrong identity and identify ourselves with our enemies. If we don’t know who we are then we are whomever somebody tells us we are." —The immortal OG Dr. Amos N. Wilson (The Falsification of Afrikan Consciousness," Afrikan World InfoSystems, New York (1993) p. 38)

60 Minutes Clarence Thomas piece

The 60 Minutes Clarence Thomas piece was interesting. The video links can be downloaded via the following:
I don't know how radical ClarenceThomas was, amidst his own claims, but this really shows the systemic process by which the instruments of white socio-political power can corrupt and break a black man. This is truly the making of a monster.
This brother is a Tom of the highest order but rest assured, his "high tech lynching" speech at the judicial hearing for the Anita Hill accusations was pure genius. He spit fire at those crackers. You can see them white folks gasping for air.


"This is a circus. It’s a national disgrace," he said during the hearing. "It is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order you will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S. Senate rather than hung from a tree."

"Why did you use that language? Why a high tech lynching?" Kroft asks.

"If someone just wantonly tries to destroy you, if somebody comes in and drags you out of your house and beats the hell out of you. What is it?" the justice replies.
