Part 1: Make Black America Conscious Again: Notes On Patriotism
By: FreedomJournal Press
John knew that a simple definition of terms from the teacher student perspective was vital in all concerns of intellectual discourse, especially among those who choose to think.
This position is also noted as vital in those that believe for certain that the fruit of independent thinking is also a necessary tool in this process.
However, John was quick to testify that his independent movement toward dependence on God was the catalyst or what held this intellectual exercise together to make it whole.
John resided in deep thought realizing that he had on countless occasions recorded the reality of the true Black American embracing deep rooted and grounded definitive qualities especially as one defines culture as it applies to any ethnic group of people.
Thus, he knew that his father and his father's father were born in North America. They also had enslaved ancestors.
As the generations passed the evidence of the pure African blood-line of many became diluted but not consumed in the great melting pot of racial fusion noted in the presence of the Native American and the European.
The Sages thus eventually realized that Black was not just a name. They also realize that this is a clear and precise way that allows them to distinguish themselves from the White American. For the record no White person I know deny and or detest being called White or fail to embrace a White American culture that comes upon them naturally due to the circumstances of life on the planet earth.
Thus, it is for certain that Black Americans present a distinct racial, ethnic and cultural
I argue that most students Black, White, Asian, Indian, Latino etc. when exposed to certain facts all realize the reality that Black people in North America who have enslaved ancestors are Black and American.
However, many people Black and White have fallen victim to the absurd notion of describing Black Americans as African Americans. Meanwhile many Civil Rights Organizations and the Black elite leadership ranks are often in the vanguard of this confusion regarding the ethnicity of Black people. But what is the role of the intellectual community within Black and White educational institutions of higher learning?
I argue that Black intellectuals have the responsibility to academically declare the merits of this term and not fall down in what is politically correct. How can one declare himself politically correct by denying his own culture and race?
