CELEBRATE BLACK HISTORY MONTH

An important time to commemorate African-Americans who have changed the world.  We must celebrate the rich history of our black leaders, martyrs, activists, politicians, educators, doctors, lawyers, preachers, business owners and even the many who dedicated their life and time building this country and sacrificing everything for their families.

Celebrating Black History month so far has been incredible, because everyday I learn something new about my history.  Recently though, while talking with my mom she shared with me some interesting facts about the American Soldiers who were stationed in Trinidad during her childhood years in the late 40s and early 50s.  It was a startling revelation for me, and what was taking place at the time was a bit shocking.  It seems it was an awful time for the citizens of Trinidad, and a time when many were in fear.  Mom remembers clearly food was being rationed in the country and everyone in her family received a Ration Card which entitled each to receive 1 pound of rice, 1 pound of flour and 1 pound of sugar.  She also remembers how much her mother as well as the women of Trinidad feared the soldiers, and at night they routinely turned down their lamps very low and cover them with cans so that the soldiers would not bolt into their homes and sleep in their beds.   (Trinidad then was a British Colony, and not independent as it is now.)

This is a part of my history – Black History that I must look into, and once I complete my research I will share  the details about this time.  Hum, I wonder if there is anyone among my on-line family who has full knowledge about this era and has no problem sharing it with me.  Please know that I welcome you to share your knowledge of this period in time.  Additionally, a good place to share the information is by logging on to www.mycaribbean.us, join if you are not a member and share your knowledge/information in a blog.

Some interesting incidents and confrontations occurred in our simple life over the last weekend and continued during the week, which opened my mind, and confirmed an interesting and important fact in the history of Blacks, their growth, their progression, and why so many constantly have a hard time working as a team collectively in our distant past as well as in recent times.

A one (1)  paragraph statement I wrote of what I observed happening in my community, which was included in my last week’s E-newsletter; that referenced working together as a collective was the talk of the town.  Yup, strangely this one paragraph was a big hit (negatively and positively)! I just wrote my opinion on what I observed, and it upset some folks, well let me remind them (1) freedom of speech; (2) feel free to proceed with suing me for speaking the truth; and (3) hate on.

This uproar allowed me to reflect on why it is that people of my race (African-American / Afro-Caribbean) when trying to do something together, always result in non-unity;  confusion;  a sense of ownership; fighting within; controlling; as well as “showboating”.

In my quest to find clarity and understanding, I had long "deep" discussions with my husband Todd who reminded me of the past of my people.  “They were captured from their home land and chained to bottom of ships, they were carried thousands and thousands of miles across the sea to strange lands in strange new worlds filled with strange people who treated them inhumanly.”   We realized what I was experiencing was deeply rooted within our soul and went back to 400 years of mental and physical conditioning that dates back to slavery.

I then recalled the words written and spoken by British Slave Owner Willie Lynch who owned / worked slaves in the West Indies, specifically in my home/Island Trinidad.  In the year1712 Mr. Lynch spoke to slave owners on the bank of the James River in the colony of Virginia here in the United States of a plan he conceived, analyzed and implemented regarding how to keep full control of their “slaves”.  Of course, I spent a substantial amount of time reviewing the words of Mr. Lynch, and it was evident everything I was experiencing and wrote about was the result of his plan.  I realized it would be very difficult to turn around 400 years of psychological and physical conditioning in a span of 40 years.  None-the-less, I feel we must try our best to release ourselves from these mental chains; and we must try extremely hard to get over this crazy madness and concur the battles we have amongst ourselves that began 100s of years ago.  I am hopeful we can achieve unification; working together collectively; and most importantly helping each other up, not only when we are down but always - without conditions and limitations.

If you read nothing else on this e-mail you must read what Willie Lynch spoke and wrote about from beginning to end, and you too will realized why we in America and the Caribbean are in the condition we currently are in with the lack of unity; "backstabbing"; confusion; hating; poverty; crime; violence towards each other; incarceration;  and even teamwork, etc.  Simple because this is what has been instilled into our hearts and minds from our forefathers and passed down through time - generation to generation, and which is obviously still embedded within us today.  What a real shame!!!!

Please read below what Slave Owner Willie Lynch wrote  in 1712 “A fool-proof method for controlling your black slaves”.  Read it, study it and understand what Mr. Lynch mastered regarding controlling the black men and women (slaves).  And think about how it’s affecting all of us today.  Once you have absorbed Mr. Lynch words let me know what you think!!!

Greetings,

Gentlemen. I greet you here on the bank of the James River in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and twelve. First, I shall thank you, the gentlemen of the Colony of Virginia, for bringing me here. I am here to help you solve some of your problems with slaves. Your invitation reached me on my modest plantation in the West Indies, where I have experimented with some of the newest, and still the oldest, methods for control of slaves. Ancient Rome would envy us if my program is implemented. As our boat sailed south on the James River, named for our illustrious King, whose version of the Bible we cherish, I saw enough to know that your problem is not unique. While Rome used cords of wood as crosses for standing human bodies along its highways in great numbers, you are here using the tree and the rope on occasions. 

I caught the whiff of a dead slave hanging from a tree, a couple miles back. You are not only losing valuable stock by hangings, you are having uprisings, slaves are running away, your crops are sometimes left in the fields too long for maximum profit, you suffer occasional fires, your animals are killed. Gentlemen, you know what your problems are; I do not need to elaborate. I am not here to enumerate your problems, I am here to introduce you to a method of solving them. 

In my bag here, I HAVE A FULL PROOF METHOD FOR CONTROLLING YOUR BLACK SLAVES. I guarantee every one of you that, if installed correctly, IT WILL CONTROL THE SLAVES FOR AT LEAST 300 HUNDREDS YEARS. My method is simple. Any member of your family or your overseer can use it. 

I HAVE OUTLINED A NUMBER OF DIFFERENCES AMONG THE SLAVES; AND I TAKE THESE DIFFERENCES AND MAKE THEM BIGGER. I USE FEAR, DISTRUST AND ENVY FOR CONTROL PURPOSES. These methods have worked on my modest plantation in the West Indies and it will work throughout the South. Take this simple little list of differences and think about them. On top of my list is “AGE,” but it’s there only because it starts with an “a.” The second is “COLOR” or shade. There is INTELLIGENCE, SIZE, SEX, SIZES OF PLANTATIONS, STATUS on plantations, ATTITUDE of owners, whether the slaves live in the valley, on a hill, East, West, North, South, have fine hair, course hair, or is tall or short. Now that you have a list of differences, I shall give you an outline of action, but before that, I shall assure you that DISTRUST IS STRONGER THAN TRUST AND ENVY STRONGER THAN ADULATION, RESPECT OR ADMIRATION

The Black slaves after receiving this indoctrination shall carry on and will become self-refueling and self-generating for HUNDREDS of years, maybe THOUSANDS

Don’t forget, you must pitch the OLD black male vs. the YOUNG black male, and the YOUNG black male against the OLD black male. You must use the DARK skin slaves vs. the LIGHT skin slaves, and the LIGHT skin slaves vs. the DARK skin slaves. You must use the FEMALE vs. the MALE, and the MALE vs. the FEMALE. You must also have white servants and overseers [who] distrust all Blacks. But it is NECESSARY THAT YOUR SLAVES TRUST AND DEPEND ON US. THEY MUST LOVE, RESPECT AND TRUST ONLY US

Gentlemen, these kits are your keys to control. Use them. Have your wives and children use them, never miss an opportunity. IF USED INTENSELY FOR ONE YEAR, THE SLAVES THEMSELVES WILL REMAIN PERPETUALLY DISTRUSTFUL.

 Thank you gentlemen.”

As I close out my e-mail, I thought it would be good to share with you the Proclamation by President Barack Obama regarding Black History Month, which you will find below.  Please continue celebrating with your family and friends; teach your kids about all what our black leaders and people have accomplished, invented, fought for, died for, and is still working hard towards.

Presidential Proclamation -- National African American History Month

A PROCLAMATION

In the centuries since African Americans first arrived on our shores, they have known the bitterness of slavery and oppression, the hope of progress, and the triumph of the American Dream. African American history is an essential thread of the American narrative that traces our Nation's enduring struggle to perfect itself. Each February, we recognize African American History Month as a moment to reflect upon how far we have come as a Nation, and what challenges remain. This year's theme, "The History of Black Economic Empowerment," calls upon us to honor the African Americans who overcame injustice and inequality to achieve financial independence and the security of self empowerment that comes with it.

Nearly 100 years after the Civil War, African Americans still faced daunting challenges and indignities. Widespread racial prejudice inhibited their opportunities, and institutional discrimination such as black codes and Jim Crow laws denied them full citizenship rights. Despite these seemingly impossible barriers, pioneering African Americans blazed trails for themselves and their children. They became skilled workers and professionals. They purchased land, and a new generation of black entrepreneurs founded banks, educational institutions, newspapers, hospitals, and businesses of all kinds.

This month, we recognize the courage and tenacity of so many hard-working Americans whose legacies are woven into the fabric of our Nation. We are heirs to their extraordinary progress. Racial prejudice is no longer the steepest barrier to opportunity for most African Americans, yet substantial obstacles remain in the remnants of past discrimination. Structural inequalities -- from disparities in education and health care to the vicious cycle of poverty -- still pose enormous hurdles for black communities across America.

Overcoming today's challenges will require the same dedication and sense of urgency that enabled past generations of African Americans to rise above the injustices of their time. That is why my Administration is laying a new foundation for long-term economic growth that helps more than just a privileged few. We are working hard to give small businesses much-needed credit, to slash tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas, and to give those same breaks to companies that create jobs here at home. We are also reinvesting in our schools and making college more affordable, because a world class education is our country's best roadmap to prosperity.

These initiatives will expand opportunities for African Americans, and for all Americans, but parents and community leaders must also be partners in this effort. We must push our children to reach for the full measure of their potential, just as the innovators who succeeded in previous generations pushed their children to achieve something greater. In the volumes of black history, much remains unwritten. Let us add our own chapter, full of progress and ambition, so that our children's children will know that we, too, did our part to erase an unjust past and build a brighter future.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim February 2010 as National African American History Month. I call upon public officials, educators, librarians, and all the people of the United States to observe this month with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this first day of February, in the year of our Lord two thousand ten, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-fourth.
