I am blessed to be overwhelmed by eons of warriors’ emails… Often, the mountains of online communication from revolutionary comrades unearth true gems. Author Don Smith and his profound book “What I See – A New Prescription for Thought” are newly discovered gems via my electronic rebel networks.
This book is a concise and classic look at what ails Black America and what Black Americans must do to repair our broken communities. Crucial topics include chapters on urgent issues such as: “The Devaluing of the Black Woman, Regaining Control with Education, Igniting Cultural Consciousness, and Return of the Lost Art – Critical Thinking”.
Most politicos today are shameless cowards who are content blaming teachers and homosexuals for every problem in Black America. They are blissfully blinded and arrogantly ignorant as they selectively police all of the fatal ills that poison our black progeny. They will only tackle racist police as they ignore the intraracial genocide of murderous black males. They will only bash prison rapes as they brutally ignore the pervasive social and economic rapes of the Prison Industrial Complex. They will exclusively wage wars on gay marriages as they brazenly ignore the complex, multifaceted, and intensifying poisons of heterosexual black divorce rates, rampant single heterosexual motherhood, and heterosexual turbo breeders in the black race. They will ban superb gay parents from adoptions as they simultaneously ignore millions of black children born to horrid heterosexual parents who are perishing in foster care and homeless shelters as wards of states nationwide…
Smith has penned a primer for fellow afrocentric intellectuals who rebelliously dare to think critically beyond safe, tame, and mindless targets. It is a small book full of grand wisdom for cerebral revolutionaries. Read this book and help to save our nation today!
Excerpts from “What I See – A New Prescription for Thought” by Don Smith:
“I’m a firm believer that blacks can change the course of communities and lives if we get control over the education process of our children.
The educational system of this country is failing its white students by consistently denying them access to the truth about this country. It’s failing its white students by consistently being a tool to further the cause of white supremacy, racism, class status, and white privilege.
We now have an educational system that is turning out folks with MBAs who end up robbing their customers…Our educational system from top to bottom is turning out people who have great minds but dwarfing character.
Minority youth are not joining the ranks of the military because they love America and have some incredible fervor to make the world safe for democracy. They join because they see no other alternative to becoming a statistic or story on the evening news. But they should have many other alternatives.
When a generation of young folks knows more about Snoop Dogg and 50 sent than it knows about Paul Robeson, Nat Turner, Harriet Tubman, and Malcolm X, we are in a world of hurt.
An educated man or woman focuses on a career and economic sufficiency. A man or woman who has been educated for critical consciousness focuses on their role and responsibility in the empowerment of their people. One who is educated may have many letters yet not truly be learned. One who is critically conscious may have no letters but is well learned.”
Black women have always been the key to the rise and liberation of Black America. Decent women aid God Almighty in producing decent men. Women who devalue themselves will always help to produce or attract men who live in a lower moral plane.
Slavery was designed to destroy us. It was designed to empty us of any love for ourselves, our people, and our way of life.
Lincoln wanted to know how he might send us back to Africa without impacting the economic empire of America that was built by Africans. There was no national debate on post-slavery. There was no plan put in place to integrate or assemble Africans into the American society to be on equal footing with whites. It is plain to see that the intent of our captors was to keep us enslaved and keep using our backs, talents, skills, and gifts to build this empire.
The very essence of the idea of depending upon any political party for our liberation is a colossal example of our failure to be critical thinkers. We were enslaved under both political parties. We were brought to America to be slaves and nothing else. Neither party has a vested interest in our liberation.”
