“To be a Negro in this country and to be relatively conscious is to be in a rage almost all the time. ”

Some historians argue NAZISM is not a foreign idea in American politics. Some even say that the roots of German Nazism come from America. If these things are true, what does it mean for Black people in America?

In order to wage a successful campaign of physical warfare against a nation, the battle must begin with the mind and intellect. Europe’s physical onslaught 0f Africa began in its universities, churches, books, art, religious artifacts, religious text, music, statues, etc. Is that battle of ideas and intellect still being waged by Europe on African people today? If so how and how can the process be halted? Can there be a counter intellectual and cultural attack by the African world and if so how and when?

IF YOU THINK THE SYSTEM of CHATTEL SLAVERY in AMERICA WAS JUST ABOUT ECONOMICS; THEN YOU ARE MISSING THE BOAT.By blackreality — 1 year ago
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

The enslavement and captivity of African people is a 500+ years system of horror and turmoil. Throughout the contemporary African diaspora, descendants of that system are still suffering in many ways. In order to address these ills and offer solutions depends on being able to understand what was done and how it was done. This understanding can only be achieved through in-depth and careful research, coupled with critical analysis. We must remember that the impact of African captivity embraces every area of human life: history, economic, political, social, spiritual, religious, health, community building, family development, psychology, sexual health, and education. This is not a “light way” process. African people must be consciously consistent in the quest to understand what happened during slavery and how it impacted our lives.
The Black Reality Think Tank is committed to offering a platform and structure to mitigate our understanding of slavery.
Our aim here at the Black Reality Think Tank is to render among African people in America an awareness that we are somebody.
The goal and objective of the Black Reality Think Tank are to study and understand the past, in order to dissect the present and support implementing a meaningful future.
