Part 3: Education
Editors Note: Man trains the mind. God trains the heart. The world’s knowledge may offer you bread and wine, however the Truth of God will provide all things and Peace and Paradise forever.
In the name of Almighty God, Master of the universe Ruler of all the earth
Peace be unto you. To the Church and believing Christians everywhere. To those that believe in the Bible as the supreme authority that governs all of humankind. In this we give thanks to God the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit that leads and guides us the straightway.
The tragic results of forced integration in the public schools eventually led to what those people at the FreedomJournal call mis-education. Meanwhile, the demand and interest in the historical record of those once held in bondage camps also produced a sham called Black or African-American Studies. Black Willie was born in Georgia and was kin to Africans; however he was Black like me. However, the African, although Black like me came from a land once known in antiquity as “The Land of The Blacks.” They call this land mass in 2009 and last year and many years hence as Africa. Then came the man child from Africa to America and gained citizenship. The African became an African-American; the man child from Georgia was just Black like me.
The Panacea Of The School House
From time I can early remember, I was
told and taught that an education would
bring comfort to those poor, Po and Black
like me in Georgia, Tennessee and even
in Africa the land of the Blacks.
We had good teachers then because,
down south there were separate schools
and where I came from they were good
schools much better than the schools that
developed after the Busses came.
Then I believe as I reach back and look as
the Spirit would have me to look was a
time when Black teachers taught Black
youth principles, morals and values. Hip
Hop was not upon us nor were the many,
Vices that came with a world that made
the transition from Liberal to all things
immoral and ungodly. Well anyway, the
Busses came and the walls of segregation
and Jim Black Crow were allegedly torn down.
What did they make room for? White folk
fled to the suburbs and many private schools
became clandestine places for privileged
education. The poor and Po took over the
inner city schools and PoVerty was not,
Even a theory as the FreedomJournal was
in the formative stages as they went through
this fire to reflect now and send to the masses
what we have seen and heard. Eventually though
there was the need to further this education.
If you came out before the Busses came, did
you have a better chance? Well anyway I
saw the Black Awareness Movement and I
felt many of these things while serving in the
Black pride rode in the gun and the hand
shake and the Black fist was clinched. Many
Black youth cried out on many college campuses
for the right to see and read the history of their
Recruitment came upon the Black and poor as
the Po were not in college. They sent many of
the poor corrupt pseudo intellectuals to stock the
departments that came about allegedly making
claims to Black Studies.
Mis-education as told by Carter G. Woodson went
to another level and the FreedomJournal is here to
tell about it in “Fallen Letters: Mis-edcuation and
Intellectual Confusion Essays on the Black Experience.”
There were sad days for Kwame Nkrumah and even,
Sadder days for the Georgia born, Tennessee born
Black man who wanted the Truth about the Black
experience. Some schools said you are just supposed
to act like you want to know. Change your name and
dress African and be a part of the game.
Thus many, yes African men and women came
upon the scene many of our youth also died as
some could not take the sham. Many also gave up
the Ghost to drugs, alcohol and many minds became
depressed and tired.
Institutionalized education is rote memory and
programming to be brainwashed at the best Black
and White schools. What of individualism and the
personal quest for learning? What also if you take God
with you? Just where did the independent mind go?
During the Dark Days of my time I thought that
the distortion of the historical record of the Black
experience extending from Africa was the greatest
crime committed against the Black man, woman
boy and girl.
Now I see and feel the Spirit, now I know that the
greatest crime against humanity is the distortion of
the true history of the Church and Christ. Now I
know that Christ is the answer to all problems Black
or White. Is this a crime?
