Freeing the Black mind requires that we reject the self hating information.

Definition can determine the perceived essence of a person or people. The perceived essence, in turn, determines the value or worth attributable to the person or people. Consequently, definition does establish or enhance the essence of the person or the people defined. Equally, definition can suppress or destroy the true essence of a person or people defined. This reality has very powerful implications in human affairs and human relationships. At the core of these implications is psychic balance (esteem) a basic element in human relations and well being.
Psychic balance is the invisible foundation upon which every aspect of human relationship is constructed and maintained. This foundation is in turn seated on a certain fulcrumconscience. The human element of conscience is defined as (1).. The sense or consciousness of the moral goodness or blameworthiness of one’s own conduct, intentions, or character together with a feeling of obligation to do right or be good
Perception, once formed creates a resident tendency for quick, active, and intuitive cognition of the person, people, thing, or event being perceived. Perception leads to non-deliberate thoughtful decision-making or decision below the level of consciousness. It has been called thinking without thinking, and it ultimately leads to unconscious prejudice or similar behavior.

Peoples definition of themselves, their definition of other people and the definition of values by which people operate and act towards other are greatly influenced by the media.
Intrinsically, definition; particularly definitions that are developed to harm other people have been described as radical simplifiers that position for marginalization or for destruction, those they defined. This is true of all genocides. In deed, definition underlies all self-inflicted calamities that have befallen the human race; it has been the tool for portraying people and values, and subjugating conscience with respect to people and values as to commit acts that would otherwise be inhibited and prohibited by human conscience. It is often the harbinger or prelude to radical projects such as genocide, crimes against humanity and the subjugating class structures.
nologies, is by no means an indictment of the people.
Out of definition and perception, came racism and prejudice that lead to racial hatred and people committing atrocities on other people, as in the case of the Nazis committing genocide against the Jews

The medias immense ability to manipulation the masses should never be under estimated nor is it ever overstated. A few news reports about a fake swine flue out break can convince millions of people not to attend work tomorrow and to even pull their children out of schools. In fact mass manipulation through the media is so powerfully effective that it can even convince a loving mother to kill her only own child.

How Blacks are kept enslaved in the 21st century

Posted by African Press International on August 24, 2009

Have you ever notice that although Black athletes often dominate Americas sports arenas (often becoming its greatest athletes) that yet all of the governments health statistics and reports implies, to the contrary, that the bodies of Black people are somehow deficient to that of whites? Moreover, have you also notice that despite a brutal history to the contrary [where of which all other groups has been either their enemies or their victims including slavery, lynchings, holocaust , and unjustified wars] that yet the white race is always portrayed and therefore now perceived and as being the group of the highest moral, ethical values and character ?

Whether it is in the area of politics, religion, health, education, history, archeology, science, all statistics and all modern forms of media, as long as Black people continue to accept misinformation about themselves totally comprised by white people as being factual they will always remain as slaves even in the 21st century.
Within each of these noted fields fraudulent misinformation and outright lies that implies white superiority over black people are being deliberately propagated while discoveries, evidence and conflicting scientific arguments that are contrary of white supremacy are always deliberately withheld and or suppressed. This is being done to continue to perpetuate the myth of white supremacy. Its propaganda and manipulations practices are being deployed in all sectors – government, media, health and welfare, entertainment, and education, etc- nationally and internationally. .
Today what are often deemed as being credible news sources are often totally made up stories made to push an agenda or meet a governmental objective. Many journalists working for public relations firms are now hired by a U.S. government department to produce fake news reports. The media is manipulated in all manners through professional public relations (PR) firms, and covert and overt government agencies which disseminate propaganda as news. These media reports are used to promote certain political policies, ideologies and governmental objectives. These false reports are being presented as factual news by journalists, and are rebroadcast by news stations without revealing the segment is from a PR firm hired by the government, thus giving it the appearance of genuine news. As a means of meeting its unrelenting objective of maintaining its white racial dominance and control, the U.S. government now secretly disseminates racially devaluing fake news reports and fraudulent misinformation through the national and local media regarding its Black population.
Fake deplorable news reports about African Americans are being deliberately disseminated unrelentingly everywhere through news releases in magazine articles, radio, television, press releases, documentaries, and false census reports perpetuating and framing the myth of Whites racial, moral, and ethical superiority over its Black population.
Many Black people can attest to the fact that they are being deplorable inaccurately depicted through the white control media. However, most Black people do not recognize the immense relevant and detrimental consequences of such negative portrayals. Its constant relentless bombardment of deplorably negative imageries of African Americans is an insidious yet very sophisticated system of control that is designed to adversely manipulate and shape the minds and collective consciousness of Black America by subjecting them to seeing only the fraudulent worst in themselves. These negative portrayals of African Americans are a deliberate modern system of psychological warfare that is deployed and works very much like a massive marketing campaign. It corrupts African Americans sense of racial unity and cohesion, mold the character of self-hatred, engender self-doubt, self-loathing, and distrust among their group while insinuating that Blacks admire, respect, and trust only Whites. Its drills the message into Black psyche that they are now their own worst enemies [The negative experiences that Blacks have with their fellow blacks merely acts as a confirmation of this program solidifying it within the minds of Black people]-therefore engendering an aberration of internalized self contempt that pulverizes Black unity and halts Black upward mobility. It not only conditions blacks to accept white dominance over their lives, but to also prefer it. Its propaganda and manipulations practices is being deployed in all sectors – government, media, health and welfare, entertainment, and education, etc- nationally and internationally.

This is not an attempt to advocate anti white racism, but is instead the indisputable truth affirmed by thousands of years of western history. Through out western history when people in power wanted to conquer a people or maintain their dominance over a people they have done so by manipulating that targeted group of people… Therefore the perception of the suppressed group is not their own but is instead impressed upon them without their knowing it.

This psychosocial program has successfully convinced many Black people that their problem lies totally with themselves rather than the white elites [despite a brutal history to contrary] and that any thoughts to the contrary would be to merely peddling victim hood in a feeble attempt to absolve themselves from their own responsibilities. This modern system of exercising white racism is the proficient and most detrimental ever faced by Black people.

This unethical yet very sophisticated method of control through the usage of mass psychological manipulation is the crowning achievement of Dr. Edward Bernays, a mass manipulation expert that was hired by several U.S. presidents. Dr. Bernays was also a prestigious founding member of the Tavistock Institute of Human Relation; an organization that specializes in mass manipulation and brain washing. He said in his book Propaganda, that; “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in a democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country …If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without them knowing it. The current public relations industry is a direct outgrowth of Bernays’ work and his is also still currently used by the United States government.
The medias immense ability to manipulation the masses should never be under estimated nor is it ever overstated. A few news reports about a fake swine flue out break can convince millions of people not to attend work tomorrow and to even pull their children out of schools. In fact mass manipulation through the media is so powerfully effective that it can even convince a loving mother to kill her only own child. The self hateful, negative, perceptions of themselves held by so many Black people today (that is extremely contrary of the immense degree of Black pride, self love, and racial unity remarkably demonstrated during the sixties) are not unique, exceptional nor isolated occurrences devoid of rationale or reason. They are the result of this deliberate media driven psychosocial program.

The federal government has long aggressively used fake news reports produced by hired public relations agencies. In all, at least 20 federal agencies, including the Defense Department and the Census Bureau, have made and distributed hundreds of television news segments in the past four years. Many were subsequently broadcast on local stations across the country without any acknowledgement of the governments role in their production.

It is surmised that this modern method of control was implemented in 1968 in the face of widespread violence that ensued after the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. Kings brutal assassination led to many demonstrations of unrest and rioting disturbances; that of which were reported in more than 100 cities across the nation. This violence resulted in the loss of lives and property that cost the nation and taxpayers millions of dollars and increasingly placed the peace and stability of the nation in dire jeopardy. America s brutal racial mistreatment of African Americans had appeared to have reached its boiling point creating much unrest and discord. These factors, combined with the rapidly tarnishing American global image, led the U.S. Governments agents of White supremacy to quickly reform their techniques of institutionalized racism.
The problem led to the then president, Lyndon B Johnson, ordering that a commission be formed, later known as the Kerner Commission, to investigate and prescribe a cure or recommendations for the problem. The Commission concluded that blatant White racism was the single aggravating factor for the collective problems.
The Kerner reports findings required that the U.S. Government abandon its condoning of open, blatant forms of racism to control and maintain White dominance. This abandoning of dated tactics led to the need for developing an improved method of controlling and suppressing its Black population. Changing times made it necessary for the U.S. government to change its methods to a much more subtle and socially acceptable means of continuing its racial suppression of Blacks and to maintain its White dominance. Clearly, the sophisticated method of psychological warfare met such a need. It was the logical choice, perfect for the changing times. Unlike the blatantly brutal forms of racism used in the past, which Blacks were able to identify easily and therefore unify and form counter strategies, this modern method of racism works from a psychological perspective. This provided the U.S. government a more socially acceptable method of continuing the White racial hierarchy for dominance and control given that it is not as easily recognized. This new method exists in the space between overt racism and racial respect. Its methods include the ability to both influence the national climate and engender personal psychological feelings among Americans that meet the U.S government objective.

The basis of this concept of mind manipulation is that the human being’s most critical aspect is the mind and it works by affecting the unconscious mind through deception. Its weapon is the message that it carries and the way that it adversely affects the targeted recipient group in terms of their behavior. Here is a simplified example of how this is being implemented against African Americans. Let us, for example, imagine that a crew of people was aboard their own massive ship and that this ship was being shadowed by another neighboring ship that was constantly broadcasting derogatory messages to the first group. Such messages as that their ship was lesser, smaller, not seaworthy, perhaps slowly sinking or that their crew was incompetent and was planning a mutiny. With time, the group receiving the negative messages, being unable to refute or to confirm these derogatory messages and deficiencies will grow weary and paranoid of the negative messages and will eventually comes to accept these negative assessments of themselves. The perception created by the taunting now unconsciously influences how the taunted group perceives themselves, subsequently causing them to become distrustful of themselves, doubting themselves, hating themselves and, eventually, fighting among themselves. The taunted group may even become so besieged by deep feelings of inadequacy that they may even jump into the sea and attempt to swim towards the taunting ship now believing it to be superior to their own boat even if their own ship was in fact better.

Within a real life setting this mortifying psychological manipulation is precisely what is being done to African Americans through an immense campaign of false derogatory misinformation and false negative media reports, fake news, and statistics that are created by U.S. governmental agencies and then leaked to its collaborators in the news media, which either knowingly or unknowingly carry the stories as their own. To the detriment of Blacks, this system of applied psychological conditioning has been an extremely effective. It has successfully conditioned many African Americans to accept the dominance of Whites and white institutions over their lives.
Moreover, all African Americans have experienced the burden of this psychological warfare, some more severely than others have. It is experienced every time we [Blacks] read a newspaper, watch the evening news, enter a classroom, and read its racially biased textbooks. And while many Black Americans have successfully navigated through the psychology mortifying mine field and have gone on to lead successful, productive lives, but for far too many African Americans this immense devaluation can seem inescapable and tragically, over time, many begin to accept subconsciously and painfully the negative portrayals of themselves. Many also become discouraged by the acceptance that their society is also preconditioned to see the worst in them and that, therefore, if they were ever to gain acceptance, if it is to be won at all, that success would be hard won and likely to manifest negative internalized psychological pain and distress within many African Americans that can take many forms… In fact, this governmental mortifying psychological warfare against African Americans may be the most aggravating, if not core, factor of the national phenomenon of self hatred; loss of educational aspirations; loss of unity, cohesion and racial pride; and fragile psyches of many African Americans today. Moreover, this type of psychological manipulation program has been proven very effective in rapidly destroying a groups ethical and moral values and cultural norms with regard to violence, brutality, and even murder. All people are products of cultural conditions and their worldviews operate outside of their level of consciousness. Therefore, no group can be preconditioned to see only the worst in themselves and not exhibit some degree of negative psychological impact. This mass manipulation program is In fact, so proficient at damaging the Black self-perception that tragically it has become easier for many Blacks to accept derogatory premises of themselves rather than recognizing this program.

As long as the power to define and manipulate Black people through these noted forums remains in the control of the white elites they will always give black people those fraudulent misinformation that implies their white superiority. As long as it is whites that are controlling the societal scoreboard they will always give themselves the winning scores while giving Black people the losing scores.

This mass psychological conditioning program also significantly influences society as a whole. Its ultimate goal is to foster a consensual national setting of where in which Blacks are more easily divided, exploited and ultimately suppressed. The medias constant negative imagery of Black Americans is not only fraudulently inaccurate but is actually being done to engender a shift of victimization that changes the root problem of racism in America to be due to Blacks behavior rather than Whites proclivity for racism. Therefore engendering increasingly prejudiced distorted perceptions and acrimonious beliefs about African Americans that makes the nation and the entire world insensitive to their plight, tranquilizes efforts on their behalf, lessens pressure for social change on their behalf and makes any serious criticism of White racism almost impossible today and attempts discourage miscegenation between Blacks and whites.

It also creates a false justification for the legal systems mistreatment of African Americans. Wherein they are disproportionately incarcerated, given stiffer sentences, and are more likely than other racial groups to be treated brutally, beaten, and fired upon by police officers while they are unarmed. These injustices now goes ignored because the perception has become that its all now justified.
When contempt of Blacks is made to appear to be justifiable, it is the most fiercest and effective type of racism because its witnesses, bystanders, and even world audiences will sit by idly allowing African Americans to be brutally mistreated disproportionately incarcerated under the belief that it is justified.] It also affects attitudes that when enacted through governmental policies, laws, and other legislation actions, serve to ensure that African Americans will not advance. Its effects are manifested in ideas, education, governmental policies, economic stratification, social segregation, housing markets, hiring and promotion practices, psychological issues, and minority access to a variety of social services and opportunity. This campaign successfully stripped African Americans of the national and international support that was acquired during the 1960’s civil rights struggles. This anti Black governmental campaign of psychological warfare also creates a false justification for the legal systems mistreatment of African Americans wherein they are disproportionately incarcerated, given stiffer sentences, and are more likely than other racial groups to be treated brutally, beaten, and fired upon by police officers while they are unarmed. Moreover, some studies have shown that this shift of victimization now reflects increasingly acrimonious beliefs and prejudiced perceptions about and against African Americans that are arguably stronger today than they were after emancipation.

The objective of the United States government has always been to maintain its White dominance over its Black population, and clearly, psychological warfare meets this needbecause it covertly creates a national climate that allows the government to suppress consensually the advancement of its African American population and to maintain its White dominance.

Golden day for Kenya – The Kenyan women did as the men by dominating the arena

Posted by African Press International on August 24, 2009

Written By:KBC reporters/agencies

It was a golden day on the track for Kenya, complete with a silver lining.

Vivian Cheruiyot won the women’s 5,000 metres and compatriot Sylvia Kibet took the silver on Saturday at the world track and field championships in Berlin.

Vivian Cheruiyot made history by becoming the first woman to win a World 5000 metres title just hours after Abel Kirui led compatriot Emmanuel Mutai to a 1-2 finish in the men’s marathon .

Cheruiyot, won in a time of 14:57.97. cheruiyot 5000.jpg

Defending champion Meseret Defar of Ethiopia (14:58.41) led coming down the home stretch but was forced to settle for bronze when she was overtaken by Kibet (14:58.33) at the line.

“With our team we decided to go at a fast pace, to push,” said Cheruiyot. “We did not know how the others could do in their final lap.

Good sprint’

“It has been such a long time that Kenya has not got the gold medal in the 5000m.

“On my last 100 metres I was pushing so hard. I like fast races because if the race is not fast there can still be 10 athletes in the last lap at the same time. Anybody can win then with a good sprint.” An elated Cheruiyot said.

Kibet was just happy to get on to the podium.

“I’m very grateful to have a medal because I was fourth in Osaka and fourth again in Beijing,” she said.

Defar, however, said she was “very disappointed”.

“I expected to get gold but I wasn’t successful,” she said. “I’m very sad. The pace wasn’t too fast. I was confident I could win gold but I don’t know what happened.”


Earlier, Abel Kirui secured the world marathon gold.

Kirui ran a tactical race and prevailed to lead a 1-2 Kenyan finish in the 42km race held on Saturday afternoon in Berlin Germany.

The 27 year old claimed the gold in a new championship record of 2 hours 6 minutes 54 seconds after a blistering first half around the city.

Compatriot Emmanuel Mutai clocked 2hr 7 minutes 48 seconds clinching the silver after battling a bout of vomiting in the final 3 kilometers.

Another Kenyan four time Boston marathon champion Robert Mwafrika Cheruiyot finished 5th behind bronze medalist Tsegaye Kebede of Ethiopia and his compatriot Deriba Merga.

Kenya now has 10 medals, 4 gold, 4 silver and 2 bronze medals.
