IF YOU THINK THE SYSTEM of CHATTEL SLAVERY in AMERICA WAS JUST ABOUT ECONOMICS; THEN YOU ARE MISSING THE BOAT.

In his book, Between the World and Me,
Ta-Nehisi Coates states “You must resist the common urge toward the comforting narrative of divine law, toward fairy tales that imply some irrepressible justice. The enslaved were not bricks in your road, and their lives were not chapters in your redemptive history. They were people turned to fuel for the American machine. Enslavement was not destined to end, and it is wrong to claim our present circumstance—no matter how improved—as the redemption for the lives of people who never asked for the posthumous, untouchable glory of dying for their children. Our triumphs can never compensate for this.”

The Black Reality Think Tank will discuss many of the “foundational bricks” supporting the enslavement of African people in America. Host
Dr. William Rogers and Co-host Ms. Bonissiwa Ayan.

REMEMBERING CLASSICAL AFRICAN CIVILIZATION

The Black Reality Think Tank will recall many of the fine points relating to the history of classical African culture on tonight’s broadcast. As we. deconstruct and resurrect our minds from the “dark nights” of bondage and captivity, it is good to recall “from whence we came” so that we can retrieve our lostness and restore our African Ethos.

Host Dr. William Rogers and Co-host Bonissiwa Ayan.

THE FEMINIZATION OF THE BLACK CHURCH: WHERE ARE THE BROTHERS?

Why are most Black Church congregations, female? Where are the brothers?

According to Leon Podles, the origins of the problem go back much farther than most people suspect. Author of The Church Impotent: The Feminization of Christianity (1999), Podles theorizes that religion has lost some important traits that, if regained, would give men much more to identify with and would perhaps precipitate their return.

The discussion tonight (8/27/19) at 8 pm eastern time on The Black Reality Think Tank. Host Dr. William Rogers and Co-host Ms. Bonissiwa Ayan.

IS GOD A WHITE RACIST?

This is the age of “Trump-America” and this question has resurfaced. In the late ’60s, a small group of theologians associated with the black power movement separated from the mainstream black church, physically and philosophically. The black liberation theology project, as sketched by founders like James Cone and J. Deotis Roberts, rigorously tested the malleability of Scripture, putting it against the horrors of racism and slavery. They argued that the Jesus of Christianity had been corrupted through colonialism and white supremacy and that the true image of God reflected the plight of the oppressed. In America, this meant poor black people. Black liberation theology rendered the gospel black and populist. It wasn’t embraced by the mainstream black church, and it was considered seditious, possibly heretical by white theologians. Secularists thought it was an incomplete rehash of Marxism.

In the ’70s, William R. Jones took the radicalism of black liberation theology to a faith impasse. Jones’s book “Is God a White Racist?” suggested an alternative approach to theology. “Until the alleged negative elements are appropriately reconciled with the alleged benevolence of God,” Jones wrote, “His goodness remains an open question.” There is an endlessly useful concept within, which Jones calls “divine racism.” The idea is that the benevolence or the wrath of God corresponds to ethnic lines in America. And in turn, an ethnic God practices tribalism. “Ethnic suffering does not strike quickly and then leave after a short and terrible siege,” he wrote. “Instead, it extends over long historical eras.”

IS A RACE WAR INEVITABLE IN AMERICA OR IS IT “FAKE NEWS?’

In light of all the killings of Black folk by the white terrorist, are African Americans being baited to retaliate so that real bloodshed can be implemented?  How long will we allow our children to be kidnapped and killed?  Are our only recourse candlelight vigils and teddy bears on street poles?  How do we alert our children to these possibilities?  These questions and others will be examined on tonight’s program 8/17/18.

Sex Abuse and The Black Family

A major focus of the Black Reality Think Tank involves supporting efforts to rebuild the Black Family.  We have conducted several conversations in the past exploring issues and examining possible solutions that will support healing.  Today’s conversation will examine the explosive impact of sexual abuse on the Black Family, individuals, and community.  Today’s guest is Ms. A’sista Storey.  She is the author of a book addressing sexual abuse called “Generational Curses: 70 Years of Destruction of a Black Family.

The aim of the Black Reality Think Tank is community empowerment.  Our goal and objective are to study and understand the past in order to dissect the present and support implementing a meaningful future.

UP YOU MIGHTY RACE! YOU CAN ACHIEVE WHAT YOU WILL

Liberate the minds of men and ultimately you will liberate the bodies of men.
Marcus Garvey

On this past weekend 800 African American, Latino and Native American men led a peaceful march through the downtown area of Memphis, Tenn. These were religious men who were concerned about the level of violence, poverty and lack of care in the community. This type of action is not new among community-minded men. Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and others have taken to the streets in a show of solidarity when injustice is the order of the day.
On August 17, 2018, the African world will celebrate the 131st birthday of the Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey.
