"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." MLK.
QUESTION : WHY DID MARTIN LUTHER KING STRESS FOCUS ON CONTENT OF CHARACTER INSTEAD OF ON SKIN COLOR??
Here is the answer: in this society the color black is synonymous with numerous negative stereotypes which strangely African Americans themselves believe in:
1. Black monday
2. Black cat
3. Black cloud
4. As black as sin
7. Black eye
8. Black heart
9. Black list
10.Black / dark day
19. Black widow

The logic is simple. So simple many college lecturers of physics and calculus cannot comprehed it. If I believe that black is negative, bad and criminal and call myself black, I am in essence affirming that I myself is also negative, bad and criminal. Why would I want to affirm that I am a bad person? Why would I want to do that every day? Strange but that is exactly what so many organizations like The Black Star Project is doing!
SOMEONE OR SOMETHING HAS BRAINWASHED AFRICAN AMERICANS CAUSING THEM TO FOCUS ON THEIR SKIN COLOR INSTEAD OF ON THEIR CONTENT OF THEIR CHARACTER AND CONVINCED THEM THAT THEY ARE BLACK PEOPLE INSTEAD OF GOD PEOPLE! People who focus on their skin color instead of on their spirit and character content will always be at the bottom of the ladder anywhere in the world especially when they believe and associate that color with negative and dastartly attributes! But such reasoning is too deep for the intellectuals and too simple for the partisans!
Since African Americans believe these stereotypes to be true calling themselves black is literally affirming negative affirmations over their lives! If I call myself criminal for 18 years guess what I will become? If I call my children no good, criminals, what do you think they will become Reverend? Now you know part of the reason why so many African Americans are in prison. And the frightenning thing is intellectuals like Michelle Alexander and Tom Burrell can understand calculus and astronomical physics but cannot comprehend such simple logic!
SO WHY DON'T WE CALL OURSELVES GENIUS OR BRILLIANT?
THE WEIRD PSYCHOLOGY OF AFRICAN AMERICANS PSYCHOLOGISTS SHY AWAY FROM EXPLAINING!
African Americans who have infected the world with the hypocritical "black consciousness" aka we are black people (thus focussing on skin color instead of character content), movement instead of a genius, or productive consciousness aka we are genius or productive people (focussing on results), show extremely weird racial psychology! They now love the Democratic Party, the party of slavery, KKK, lynchings and 100 years of opposition to civil rights, etc and while they accuse Republicans often of racism, they see nothing wrong with abandonning their own brother African Americans seeking office for caucasian opponents as many like Reverend Floyd Flake did for Hillary Clinton over Obama! It is racism when the Republicans do it but when the negroes do the same it is called something else.
Psychologically it really looks like African Americans are angry at the Republicans for freeing them from slavery because their is nothing that the Republicans have done that compares to over 3000 lynchings, burning and razing of the Black Wall Street in Tulsa or the terrorizing and torture of the residents of Rosewood Florida, wantonly raping of the wives of Southern African American men or the overturning of the civil rights bill passed by the Republicans after the Civil War, nothing whatsoever! And these psychologically impaired negroes now pointedly hate their liberators and love their tormentors!
Now their attempt to infect the rest of the world with this insane racist psychology and infatuation with the color black far greater than they are with college education or entrepreneurship should be repudiated strongly! And they wonder why almost every ethnic group that emigrate to the USA zooms right pass them! You fools; while you love marching and talking about how black you are the asians are talking about sending their children to the ivy leagues!
THE CONSPIRACY EXPOSED;ASSOCIATING PEOPLE WITH A COLOR LINKS THEIR RATES OF SUCCESS TO THE PERCEPTIONS OF THAT COLOR!
"Following the 2001 offensive by the security forces which left more than two dozen dead and 75 injured, the then Public Defender Howard Hamilton said Saturday, July 7 - the day the operations began - should be tagged 'Black Saturday'.
"The 7th of July is a black day in our history. I call it Black Saturday. Too many lives have been lost for nothing to come of this,' said Hamilton of the 2001 incursion led by retired Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Reneto Adams." Jamaica Observer May 31, 2010

Are negro people really so dunce? Why do negro people seem to fall into the traps set for them all the time?
We are always falling into the traps. Why do we never seem to learn? We fall into the trap when we respond in a manner that focuses on arguing and demonstrating and adopting and repeating negative stereotypes others invented for us, instead of taking actions that will by themselves refute the challenge of the trap or using positive stereotypes to help mold and define ourselves.
Try this question: What does it mean to be a black person? Who or what is a black man? Indians and Pakistanis with dark skins do not consider themselves black and many recoil in anger when someone calls them black. Years ago I heard a caucasian nursing student say of Colin Powell; "he is not black is he?" Racist American law says that if someone had some fraction of Negro blood such a one was black even if their skin had a pale appearance. Thus many persons do indeed have dark/black skin but many do not and still yet they are referred to as black persons. And many, like the Indians and Pakistanis who have dark/black skin consider themselves to be white persons!
What does it mean to be a white person? White is a description we use when clearly any intelligent person can see that no human being has any skin color remotely close to the color white. The color of their skin is clearly not white so then it must be an attempt to describe something else. I believe that it is an attempt to describe their personality! A white personality? What is that? The truth of the matter is the color has nothing to do with a person's skin shade but it is an attempt to describe the character and personality. I mean it has to be so because their skin color is very clearly not white at all! And we have fallen for this trap comprehensively.
ARE WORDS AND IMAGES IMPORTANT? ASK HOLLYWOOD!
Black, like white, is a color. Culturally they have taken on meanings that are opposite, with black mostly having negative meanings and white, positive ones. In the Bible white is represents holiness and purity but surprise, surprise black is not used to represent sin! Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow ("Come now, let's settle this," says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool. Isaiah 1:6). So the Bible says sin is scarlet but yet today it is universally described as black! And the strange thing is dark skinned persons have accepted this description and thus fallen into the trap of having someone else define them.
What is a person? At the core a person is a spirit being with a physical house. That spirit being has a personality and a character in that physical house. Is the color of the house a description of what the character and persolality ARE? Can a personality and character have a color?
So what does it really mean to call someone a black person? Does it mean they are a color person or does it mean they are a negative person? Does it mean that they have black skin? If black skin describes the personality then millions of persons have accepted that they are negative, dirty and bad considering that these very millions of persons themselves use the color black negatively!
A COLOR SHOULD NOT BE USED TO DESCRIBE A PERSONALITY
It is conflictive and hypocritical to be use a negative word and try to say it is positive. Black is a color period and should not be said to be anything otherwise or to describe a personality unless you want to do as the general culture has done and taken it and made it negative and thus seemingly the negativity of it has been accepted by all and African Americans because you use these negative phrases yourselves.
AFRICAN AMERICANS ARE ESPECIALLY IN LOVE WITH REFERRING TO THEMSELVES AS BLACK USING IT AS SOME CRUTCH FOR THEIR LOW SELF-ESTEEM AND HAVE INFECTED THE NEGRO WORLD WITH THIS!
What black children? How about our genius children! Calling them black means nothing positive; black is a color and does not describe what a human being is. I am black means what- I am a color? I am a genius now means something positive!
HAVING BLACK SKIN IS NOT THE SAME AS SAYING I AM A BLACK PERSON
In essence, saying I am a black person is saying that I am a bad person; I am an inferior person; I am a criminal person; I do bad things! That is what the subconscious understands it to mean. So then this negative affirmation is said over African Americans millions of times daily and they wonder why they are the last on the economic ladder and the first on the criminal ladder?? How could so many people be so dunce not to perceive this?
Words and images that impact perception and belief systems need to be taken literally because they affect the subconscious. What do you think has been the result of portraying dark-skinned persons in evil roles in movies (that has changed recently) in the past 60 years? Surely it could be said that this was
entertainment; but the impact on the minds of viewers has been unmistakable and jarring!
OK let us get this one straight! When persons like the police use skin color to define what persons are what do we (Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson,et al) do and call it? When employers use skin color to deny jobs what do we call it? And what is our response to the police and employers- that you cannot use ... to judge .....? Can you fill in the blanks? So the why do we try to do the same thing we accuse the government and the police and employers of!
If you cut your skin what color is the blood-black, white or red? What is the color of your personality and character? For that matter does your skin color defines your personality and character?
When did we first start calling ourselves black and who originated it?
