There several theories on the effects of the phscyology dealing with identity. What I have discovered is that when a certain group begins to identitfy with a state of being that is totally contrary to their current social identity then other groups must then adjust their social identity which will cause them to reject or accept that groups choice of identity. In a sense you are upsetting the apple cart.
There is a lot of professing of being awake lately!
I have found no shortage of those who want to define this awakening as everything from “a great falling away” to “the delusional” by those on the outside looking in.
In fact I have found that to critically think and question the mainstream ideology requires a courage that will offend most, because most don’t possess that courage.

My wife and I watched the movie “The Birth of a Nation” by Nate Parker and we were greatly inspired and encouraged by our hero Nat Turner and his courage to give his life for the liberation of his and my people. There was a line in the movie where Nat Turner’s character says,” I now read this bible with NEW EYES” it is with new eyes that we become aware of the truth and gain the power to inspire others or AWAKEN others to the truth of who they are.

Let me inform you that this line of reasoning is deeply embedded into the conscience, and black subjection is reinforced by this country’s christian society. Continue reading

I believe we must look at it with reason and logic, and we must also view tragedy with a emotional and spiritual lens.
If we consider what happened in Orlando, Florida only from the perspective in which it is reported we are bypassing critical reasoning, and it is very important to first be critical of the information presented by mainstream media, why?

Once a person decides they are going to seek truth they are now standing against family, society, church traditions and the popular thought that is based in or influenced by the
“wicked powers” of this world.
We all know about the Civil War and the “Emancipation Proclamation” amendment to the constitution by Abraham Lincoln right?
Many of us are in the dark about the “Gullah Wars” which forced the country to deal with slavery on a political level. Black people are deprived of their history and the strength that their legacy inspires. American history has been told with a skewed narrative as to suppress the exploits of Black people and denote their victories therefore suffocating the greatness in future generations.

Black Wall Street
When Blacks were denied access to white facilities the Black people of Tulsa started their own community. Marcus Garvey even planned to have ships transport goods from France, Africa, Canada, and other places to do business with this thriving city before the city was terrorized by surrounding Mayors and white mobs.
