Racism in America: A psychological approach

Racism is arguably a very significant problem in America, yet some people deny its existence or impact.

The study of the existence of racism is a sociological conversation. Yet the answer to racism in America does not exist within the field of sociology. The discussion may lie with political pundits, yet the answer is not within political science. Economics is the leading cause of racism, yet correcting economics will not end racism. This is why a person’s economic status does not resolve his exposure to racist activities.

Sociology studies what is happening and why.  Political science is the game of power grabbing. Economics is the study of how society accumulates and distributes its scarce resources, and in America there is a positive correlation between being Black and being poor. Yet knowing Black history will not change the future of racism. The real answer to racism is within the field of psychology.  The Psychology of the 310 million American minds is where the answers are.

So what is the psychology of racism?  It is the psychological possession of an inferiority or a superiority complex. Read moreRead more

My Wedding Vows

Whosoever recognizes and honors the gifts of God, recognizes and honors God himself.  Brandy I honor God as I honor you, my true gift.  This world is abound with ingenuous and ungiving people.  God has blessed me with you, a precious gift of genuine and giving divine sustenance.

 

I ask God how do I remain worthy of such a gift.  Through prayer, I find the answer is to devote my being to maintaining and remaining  steadfast to being your answer, being your encourager, being your strong and solid rock of love and support from this day forward.

What Social contract have you signed?

REPUBLISHED FOR MY NEW HOMIES AT L.B. JORDAN HIGH MALE ACADEMY, GIVING BACK THE LOVE
As children we live in the freedom of wonder. All we do is a first for us.  Taste, feel cold and hot. We learn. Our parents are our Universe, we shall be so lucky that they show us a broad universe of books, colors, shapes, science and adventure. We soon leave that behind to experience life out from under their wing. We step with false boldness in that we seek to cling to new found friends for comfort.

The freshman contract- As we begin to live for our new hormones our parents voices quickly fade as we replace them with voices of peers who accept us and give us a new sense of belonging and understanding. We sign a freshman contract that may tell us that purple hair, tattoos and Lil Wayne are cool. Talking about the blind leading the blind. This is the process of finding one’s self. A lot is riding on what contract we sign. Read moreRead more

The disappearance of the nuclear family

Okay, let’s say that we are totally over the nuclear family. No longer do we value mommy and daddy loving and sharing under one roof with one thought of raising healthy balanced leaders of tomorrow. We are now content with the idea that shit happens. She acts so surprised when the pregnancy test is positive, or he cheated on her. But yet and still we move forward with the separation. She’ll go on dating while the kids are with their daddy’s mother, while he is on a date of his own during his weekend.

girl-cryingParents have a responsibility of time and resources to their offspring. If you live together as a cohesive unit, there will be more time and resources going towards common goals. Apart, there are two households to support, two dating lifestyles to support. Both of which create a sacrifice on behalf of the children. Junior has to compete with Uncle Ray for mom’s attention. Little Jennifer has to go without if mom spent an extra $200 on lingerie for Ray’s satisfaction. Lord help us if Uncle Ray thinks Jennifer is pretty. Read moreRead more
